So what are some ways to grow your list? Here are seven tips for adding large numbers of new subscribers to your lists and helping your business prosper.

Seven Tips for Growing Your Email List

  1. Make your offers irresistible. Be sure that your lead magnet is a valuable, gotta-have-it enticement. You should really be able to offer it for sale, it's so good. The reality is, the better it is the more subscribers you'll get. 
  2. Write incredible emails. Make it your business to write the best emails ever. People will look forward to seeing your name in the "From" column and eagerly devour your information. If you're at least shooting for something like that, you'll do fine.
  3. Encourage sharing. Along those lines employ social media buttons and encourage your readers to share and forward the emails to other people. You'll be amazed at how well this works.
  4. Use Facebook's new Call to Action feature. You're now able to insert a call to action button on your Facebook posts. Employ this by driving them to a landing page of your choosing and getting them signed up there.
  5. Use paid ads to drive leads to a landing page. Low-cost paid ads and retargeting can reap many signups for your lead magnet. Don't discount this one!
  6. Use popups. Ask a bunch of people and they'll tell you exactly how much they hate popups, but the fact is, the work very well. The trick is to not be overbearing and that they don't stay up long. Master this and you'll see opt-in rates soar.
  7. Hosting webinars. One tricky way to gather a lot of signups quickly is to host a free webinar series. Each person signing up will have signed up for your list.

There you have it, seven ways to help grow your email lists. Use them to help your business stay in business for a long time.
