Super-Charge Your Sign-Ups
It is great having a mailing list and newsletter but how can you get more people to sign up to your list? Here are several of the best ways to increase your mailing list sign-ups.
1. Set Up A Special Web Page
Set up a special web page dedicated to your newsletter or mailing list. Include a subscribe box near the top where everyone will see it. Now include a link to the subscribe page from every other page on your web site.
2. Keep It Simple
Do not ask for too much information on your newsletter sign-up form. Streamline the subscription process for your visitors. All you really need at this stage is the visitor's name and email. If you ask for too much information you will lose some of the potential subscribers.
3. Give Away A Free Ebook
This is one of the best techniques to encourage people to give you their email address. Offer them a free ebook with information they want, in return for signing up.
4. Write Articles
Write some articles on your mailing list topic and post them at free article directories such as EzineArticles and ArticleCity. That way webmasters and editors can publish your articles without payment and you will receive traffic to your sign up form when readers click through the link in your author's resource box.
5. Advertising Swaps
An excellent way to increase traffic to your mailing list sign-up page is to swap ads with other newsletters on related topics. Provided you already have a list of reasonable size then owners of other newsletters should be interested in swapping ads with you. This is a great way of driving highly targeted traffic to your subscription form.
That is a few ways to quickly increase sign-ups to your mailing list.
