How to Quickly Grow My List

Q:  I publish a weekly ezine and want to grow my list more quickly.  I am doing some very limited article marketing right now. Is it advisable to be more aggressive with this tactic and if so what venue(s) do you recommend or would you suggest a more effective approach for growing my opt-in list? 


A:  Hi Lisa– There are 3 effective ways I’ve discovered to grow your list fairly quickly:

1. Article marketing –Send out at least 1 (if not 2) articles per week to article submission sites.  I use the services of Submit Your Article for this.  To be most effective with this strategy, you need a killer resource box.  You can discover more about that in my article, How to Write Articles to Increase Traffic to Your Website.

2.  Client-Capturing Device –  Give visitors a reason to sign up for your list by giving away a free ebook or report.  I see that you offer one on your site, but I think you’d be more successful with a more compelling title. Here’s an article that I’ve written about effectively creating this device, Grow Your List with an Effective Client-Capturing Device

3.  Hover ad:  Adding a hover ad to my site has tripled my opt-in rate to my list.  You can read more about how to create one on your site from my article, How to Double Your Opt-ins by Adding a Hover Ad to Your Site.  

And, for additional ideas, check out the tips from my article, 15 Proven Strategies to Grow Your List.

Happy list building!
