Do You Really Need A List of Email Subscribers?

list-of-email-subscribersWhatever you may think about email marketing…

You do need a list of email subscribers. 

Any business or blogger can implement this powerful tool, a list of email subscribers, alongside your other marketing and promotional strategies.

You know that people come to your website, blog, and Social Media platforms because you’re offering them something they want, need, or like.

These are the perfect places to capture their contact information and follow up with them by using an automated system, like AWeber’s auto-responder.

  • Getting your readers even more involved. An auto-responder doesn’t just send emails. It works for you.
  • Sending emails at pre-determined times and on specific days of the week.
  • Getting you seen by an audience that wants more from you.

You can send out information with your blog and business updates, training, promotions, marketing, and building the know, like, trust factors. And, you can do this whenever you like, automatically.

Email marketing is building your list so you can send information to your audience and keep them interested.

  • Not ignoring the people that may be wanting and hoping to get more of what you offer with your knowledge and expertise.

You’ll be following up to your list of email subscribers from 3 people to 1000’s using your branded emails or texting.

If you are compelled to share your ideas, both helping people and becoming a thought leader in your field, then collecting a list of email subscribers from your audience is one of the most important things you can do.

Having a list of email subscribers is your central promotion strategy for sharing your information, programs, classes, and events.

One of the biggest clichés in email marketing is still true…

“The Fortune Is In The List!”

So what can you do?

Build your email list as you:

  • Develop your giveaway – your optin gift.

This is to encourage readers to subscribe, offering an incentive in the form of a gift or download.

  • Have your optin box/page ready to send people to.

It doesn’t just ‘sit there’, it’s working for you on auto pilot 24/7 capturing the email addresses of an audience who is pre-sold in at least some small way.

  • Promote your giveaway.

Remind people who are reading your blog, and on Social Media, that you have more great content in your email blasts, they just need to sign up!

  • Get and build your email list.

The most important thing about using your email list is that you own it.

Better for you than just having ‘likes’ on Facebook or ‘followers’ on Twitter.

  • Build a relationship – that bonds – with your banner discover more about

    I have been thinking about doing a newsletter lately, but I haven’t gotten around to it yet. It’s on my to-do list, though.

    • March 3, 2015 at 2:02 pm

      Hey Robin – I could see that a newsletter from your blog content and your ideas would be very popular! Building a list more quickly 🙂

    • March 3, 2015 at 2:03 pm

      🙂 Of course, Terry – that would be a great idea 🙂 And, fun to know

    • March 2, 2015 at 1:23 pm

      Excellent to hear, Jessica – I have found that same – thank you so much for your comment! 🙂

  • March 2, 2015 at 10:30 am

    I send an bimonthly ezine to my subscribers – it’s not always easy to keep up with, but a necessary marketing tactic.

  • March 2, 2015 at 11:17 am

    This is a great post! I feel like a lot of people get stressed to get more email subscribers but you really just want the ones that actually want to be subscribed rather than doing it because they have to

    This is a great post. I will be sure to share this information with my sister.

  • March 2, 2015 at 1:20 pm

    Pretty sure I don’t need a list at this point, maybe later down the road? I’m targeting keywords and organic customers that find me through their search engines. I think lists work for some but are not needed for others.

  • March 2, 2015 at 1:33 pm

    I definitely need to pay attention to this. I was surprised to find I do have subscribers, so I should really DO something about it! Thanks for sharing this information!

  • March 2, 2015 at 1:48 pm

    I really neglect my email subscriber lists, its something that I just leave to do what it wants – perhaps I should make more of an effort. x

    I need to do more with my email subscriber lists. I really haven’t done anything with them in a while.

  • March 2, 2015 at 2:45 pm

    These are great tips and ideas. I like to email some of my subscribers to let them know when I have fun new things coming up.

    • March 2, 2015 at 5:34 pm

      I agree, these are really great tips and ideas. It could be very helpful for any blogger.

    A news letter is something I’m planning on working in this fall once my daughter is in school. Think it would be great for my readers 🙂

  • March 2, 2015 at 8:38 pm

    It’s important to update readers through email subscription… I have one and it works wonders!

  • March 2, 2015 at 9:43 pm

    I have a pretty decent list of subscribers. I have surpassed the free subscriptions so now I am looking for the most reasonably priced service. Great tips.

  • March 2, 2015 at 10:05 pm

    I’m still trying to figure out the best way to maximize my mailing list. I agree with you though, that list is very important.

  • March 2, 2015 at 11:06 pm

    Yes, we do need email subscribers! I have a list that I update every month!

  • March 3, 2015 at 8:20 am

    I have a great email list. I like to send a newsletter every few months.

  • March 3, 2015 at 8:32 am

    My email list has grown quite rapidly now that I send it out on a schedule! My readers are looking forward to receiving it now.

    I really need to start getting more interactive with my e-mail subscribers. I definitely know that they’re important and that’s also one way to build a steady audience.

    Email marketing is key to success! All bloggers should begin building their email list early on, even if they don’t plan to sent out newsletters for a while.

    Building a list of people who follow your blog is very important. Thanks for pointing it out.

  • March 4, 2015 at 2:06 pm

    More important than an email list is a responsive email list 😉 and who would have thought? People are still buying email addresses thinking this is how it’s done…

    I know that when I transition into creating an art-related type of business, I will want to build an email list. For now, I haven’t actively concentrated on one.

    I’m a travel blogger so my “newsletter” consists of a single piece of travel trivia. Readers have to go to my blog for the answer. It works fairly well, but I haven’t spent the time I need to to really optimize it.

    I haven’t worked on my email list as much as I need to. This is my motivation to get started on it again.

  • March 18, 2015 at 3:45 pm

    I have a small list of regular email readers, which I have been quite happy with. I like knowing I have regular readers who actually read and not just toss my email into their trash. I do hope to build it up one day though.

    I do not have a list of email subscribers. I am just so busy with other things that I don’t really need one. My customers never meet me, they come in through a keyword they searched and then buy the product I reviewed most of the time. I could see this being good if you had a service or product following for sure.

      Hey Veronica – thank you for sharing – growing my list the first year or two was slow – but, once I ‘got’ it – I liked seeing the results – Let’s talk 🙂

    I recently added an optin option and it has done wonders getting e-mail subscribers obviously I have encountered spammers too but I have also had genuine subscribers which is comforting. Great post

    Email marketing is soooo important….

    You are building a relationship with your customers with the list…

    As long as you continue to provide valuable content that is highly engaging, people will remain on your list and will eventually become raving fan customers…
