List Building Tips Part 1
List Building Secret #1 – Make Your Content Relevant Keeps Your Subscribers Happy And Boosts The Amount Of People Who Will Recommend Your Newsletter To Their Friends.
One of the biggest problems I see newsletter and ezine publishers having online is that they write about subjects no one in their market is interested in. They just write about whatever they think people want to know about without doing any of the research, which is a huge no no.
Another problem is, publishers who have a market well defined don’t then write the content in their newsletters that interests their readers. There is no use having an ezine on coin collecting and running articles on stamp collecting just because you couldn’t be bothered finding the right content for your ezine.
This is easily overcome. Just send out an email asking your readers what they want to read. Also sign up for other ezines in your market and see what they are writing about.
List Building Secret #2 – Add More Subscription Boxes To Your Website
Sounds simple enough, but few people actually do it. If you have a 100 page website, you should have 100 newsletter subscribe boxes on your website.
You can integrate a subscribe box just about anywhere in a website. You could add one just before an article starts, in the middle of an article or even at the end of the article.
As long as you have good content on your website, you won’t have a problem getting people to subscribe to your newsletter.
An interesting way to do this for a content site is as follows.
Have a look at this website and see what he does to get subscribers, it’s very clever.
List Building Secret #3 – Offer An Outstanding Bonus Or Gift
I’ve had a problem in the past with offering freebies to get people to subscribe to your newsletter, but I also know it can work well, if done properly.
Why do I have a problem with it? Well I really want subscribers to be signing up for my newsletter because they want my newsletter not because they want the freebie im offering.
The best way to offer a freebie is to create one yourself and not something you have reprint rights to with 500 other people. You want it to be unique, and you want it to be something that plugs your newsletter heavily.
