You want to start a massive email campaign but do not have the email list to actually start? Well, there are actually a lot of easy ways to grow your email list fast. You do not even have to buy leads from professional lead generation companies. You just got to do what they do.
Here are some examples:
Through a lead gen form:
Offer freebies where to get those, guests would have to fill up a form, which of course includes a space for their email address. Here are some sample freebies
Offer free articles
Write a free e-book, whitepaper, or a weekly newsletter. Create a page where people can sign up and get those for free.
Create something useful for other businesses out there. Of course to get it, they have to sign up a lead gen form which is similar to what is shown above.
Host a webinar:
Have a skill that you think will be of use to other businesses, host a webinar and share those skills to the world. Anybody can join; they just have to sign up with their email.
Through social media
You have a wide reach with your social media accounts, why not use it to get more email addresses.
Promote your led gen projects
Tell the world that you are giving away freebies through your social media accounts. Next thing you know they are getting their freebies through the link you featured.
Promote your own social media project
Host a contest or some other event with prizes on your Facebook account. Of course, to join, they have to leave their email addresses.
Through your email
Your email can also be used to get more email addresses. Here are some tips:
Add a link to your email signature
Use your email to get people to visit your lead gen projects. While you already have the recipient’s email address, he or she can forward your email to other people who can in turn click on your lead gen pages.
Tell your current email list to share
While not everyone will, a percentage of your email list might be nice enough to share your email to their email list or through their social media accounts. There is a chance that nobody does, but it would not really hurt if you ask.
Create excellent content
The best way to get people to give you their email address is through good ol’ fashioned content. Provide good quality content and people will read.
