If you’re not working on building your email list by at least ASKING your customers face-to-face to sign up for your newsletter, or you’ve already done that and still want more names, but have run out of ideas, here are 5 simple ideas to help you grow your email list so you stay connected to them.
#1 – Use the Facebook call-to-action button- Rather than asking your audience through plain text within a post to join your list, use visual components to get them to act. Facebook’s ‘Call to Action’ buttons allow you to accomplish this on your Facebook Business Page.
#2 – Share your newsletter on social media- Convert your Facebook fans into subscribers by sharing those newsletters and emails on Facebook with a link to subscribe.
#3 – Add a form to your website- Add a “Sign-Up Now” form to your website by using a button, a link or simply embedding the form directly on your page.
#4 – Start a loyalty program- Reward your new and existing customers and grow your list! Collect their email address when they sign-up for the loyalty program.
#5 – Offer an online coupon- Offer new subscribers a discount that can be redeemed in-store or online. Plus, add an extra bonus for those who share with their friends!
