Ten Top Tips to Build Your Subscriber List
Have you ever considered trying to build a subscriber list? Or maybe you already
have one but would like to increase it's size. There are lots of things you can
do to make this happen. Here is a list of ten tips to increase your list size.
1. Why not setup joint ventures with owners of other websites in non-
competitive, but related subject areas. For example, if you sell information
products to do with Yoga then you may want to look for other sites or companies
that sell Yoga exercise equipment or relaxation products. Make sure they fully
understand the advantages of working with you when you approach a potential
joint venture partner in an attempt to grow your opt-in list.
2. Pay per click advertising can be a great way to get visitors to your sign
up page. Take a look at Google Adwords, Yahoo Advertiser Network, Microsoft
Advertiser Network Beta, and Overture. One thing you need to remember is that
pay per click can be very costly if you are uncertain as to how they work, so
make sure you understand what you are getting into before you start.
3. Why not put your opt-in forms on all pages of your site. How about putting a
sign-up form on the sidebar of all your pages. As an alternative you could, add
your opt-in form to the bottom of all of your pages. This will allow your
visitors to sign up for your list regardless of the page they land on.
4. Why not purchase leads for your list. This method has become less popular of
late, but it can still be worth wile if you are able to find leads of sufficient
quality. List building companies will often sell you leads for under $1.00 each.
This can speed up the creation of your list to a great extent, but you must
provide quality information if you want to give your new leads a reason to
spread the word.
5. A "tell your friends" form can be a great way to bring in extra visitors.
This means that visitors can send your list URL to 5 - 10 friends. Of course,
whether the friends join or no is another matter, but this is a good way of
gaining new leads without paying for them. Basically you can use your list's
resources to grow your list further.
6. Use private label rights products to create articles, short reports, ebooks,
eCourses and more. You can add links to your opt in form in the articles
resource box and submit them to directories of articles. You can also add your
links in the reports, ebooks and courses then send them to your current list
freely with giveaway rights or for payment with master resell rights, this
enables them to take on a life of their own and become viral in nature.
7. Use your forum signature to full effect by changing it to an advert for your
newsletter. Make sure that the wording is interesting enough to entice people to
click. This means that whenever you take part in these forums an advert for your
site will be seen be anyone reading the thread.
8. You can use your email signature in the same way you used your forum
signature to freely tell people about your website every time you send an email.
