Got List Marketing Secrets?

Got-List- Marketing-Secrets?Building your email marketing list requires creative thinking and generosity.

Sometimes your audience will need a bit more enticement to give up their information and allow you to contact them through their emails. 

— To improve your chance of getting people to sign up for your list, offer them something of added value as a bonus. It can be something of yours or something by someone else that’s of high quality and can be of benefit to your target audience. Use some list marketing secrets…

  • You’ll be sharing some really great resources. It could be a couple of your favorite videos, or online resources that you have used and find work really well.

You might also want to consider giving away something that will upsell to one of your other offerings.

For example: Give an ‘incentive’ discount coupon towards one of your products or services. This can be put on your ‘thank you’ page with a link to your sales page, or where you want them to go and check out your Free Experience offering.

—  Get involved and ask questions on forums/discussion groups and Social Media that are in your target market with a link back to your Free Experience offer page (opt-in page) works nicely. Your target audience that is interested in responding will likely also sign up for your list.

  • Start asking them simple, open-ended questions, like “What’s your biggest challenge with building your business online?” or “What’s the one thing you’d like to learn more about that relates to balancing your work and family life?

—  Another strategy to give your audience the option to join your list, is to put a ‘PS’ box on all of your sales pages leading to your Free Experience offering page.

  • We know that most visitors of your sales pages won’t buy on the first pass, so you want to make sure you give them the chance to join your list.

Here is an extra list marketing secret for you:

— You could add valuable bonuses to someone else’s product offering.

Make an offer of a bonus to your colleagues for their products and programs. When you give a bonus for someone else’s offering, you’re putting yourself in front of other people’s traffic. You do less work, but may get more subscribers for your own list.

This is leveraging and list building at its best.

“The tools Donna provide are always helpful and useful. I constantly get something out of our conversations on how to apply her information – for inner growth and for my business. We’re all working at being better and growing our businesses. It takes a certain personality to be an entrepreneur. That person has to be willing to take risks and learn to step outside of who they are to make it better. We have to be able to look at things differently.” Wayne Bowser

    VERY good ideas here. I’ve had an ah-hah moment and had to write it down so I didn’t forget it. ROFL

    I’m going to put that into action and see what happens. Thanks for the subtle push forward!
