When it comes to building successful a blog, brand or business on the internet, few things work better than a powerful email marketing strategy. The reason why email still works just as well today as it ever has, is simply that people still check their email inboxes several times per day. The only way to get more in the face of your audience is to send them a text or direct message to their mobile device — but most people are still quite reluctant to provide this information to random web sites.
Email marketing is also extremely effective because of the many different ways you can get someone to join your mailing list.
- Newsletter form on your site
- Popup window opt-in form
- Coregistration on another site
- Running free webinar campaigns
- Buying email sign up traffic
As you can see, there are many different ways to start growing your email list overnight. Through our opt-in email delivery platform at AfterOffers.com, we are continually sending thousands of new opt-in email subscribers to our clients daily. This is something I wanted to stress, simply because once you have an email list and sales funnel that is working for you, there is no limit to how large you can scale the list in size.
