Thank you to everyone who has participated in the Grow Your List Challenge.
Want another list growth boost? Make sure you take action from all four weeks of the challenge.
Week 1: Incentivize your audience
People need to know WHY they should sign up for your newsletters. “Signup for our newsletter” isn’t enough.
After all, you are asking your potential audience to take an action with you - give you their email address. What are you offering in return?
You have to entice contacts to give you their contact information.
What does that look like?
- Promise you'll send exciting and useful emails
- Exciting content that solves a customer’s problem (aka a lead magnet)
Week 2: Make it easy for your subscribers to sign up
If you make it easy for your audience to give you their email address, they’re much more likely to do it.
That means having a few things in place:
- A sign up form to collect email addresses.
- A landing page with your form to share with your audience.
- A visible spot on your homepage to capture the attention of your site traffic.
Get inspiration for your forms and landing pages.
Week 3: Integrate to automate list growth
What if you could use your other tools to capture email sign ups?
Tools your audience already interacts with.
It’d be like maaaaaaaagic, right? Well, modern-day magic is integrations.
You can automatically add new subscribers to your list by connecting your existing payment platform, form builder, CRM, etc., to AWeber.
Week 4: Tell everyone about your list
This may sound obvious, but it needs to be said. You have to tell people about your newsletter consistently.
You may be a new entrepreneur or side hustler and not be comfortable promoting yourself. It may feel awkward or scary to ask people to do something for you.
The good news is you’re already offering value in exchange for an email address.
