Want to use email marketing, but you don’t feel you have a big enough list of contacts? Here are some tips to help you jumpstart your list.
Add a sign-up form to your website
Easily add a link to your sign- up form on your website and collect emails from people who visit your site. Give your sign- up form plenty of visibility by putting it on every page, in the top right hand corner, if possible.
Keep your sign-up form short
Don’t ask too many questions. You may miss chances to grow your email list. Keep your sign- up form short and simple. Only ask for the information that’s absolutely necessary. You can collect more information down the line.
Use Mobile Signup
More than half of all Americans now have smartphones. You can use Constant Contact’s Text- to-Join feature to let people sign up via text message.
Use forward to a Friend
Add a “forward to a friend” button to your emails to help you reach your next subscribers. If you want people to forward your emails more often be sure to create share-worthy content.
