Opt In List Building – How To Write Your First Email
Your very first email that you send to your opt in list is a
very important step to establishing a very good
relationship with your list. The reason for this is that
you need to welcome them correctly and usually in any
relationship first impressions last a very long time. So in
the way that when a stranger approaches you and you form an
impression by the way that they dress, speak and use their body
language the same applies to your visitor that has
subscribed to your email list.
Usually you will have a sequence of messages setup in your
autoresponder. The first message that you send will be
labeled day 0 meaning that it will be sent immediately.
Now the important thing to structure with this email is to
establish trust and credibility with your subscriber and
deliver a warm welcome. You definitely do not want to send
a sales message for your first email as this will put them
off and they will likely unsubscribe from your list. So
usually what works for me here is I thank them for
subscribing to my list and introduce myself. I also send
them the link of the free report that they asked from
my squeeze page.
Here is an example of the email that I send:
Thanks for requesting for your report and opting-in to the
"The Name Of Your" list …
You can download your report in PDF format:

You will enjoy the report and learn the secrets (whatever
information you are giving away)
I look forward to getting to know you over the next few
months, and sharing some of my most effective secrets with
