Sign Up Today! How to Get More Email Subscribers for Your Business
Email marketing is very effective way to boost traffic and conversions as well as giving you the perfect opportunity to engage with your customers. However, a lot of businesses find their email subscriber list looking a little bare. So, how can you boost those numbers? As providers of awesome email marketing services, we’re here to share our wisdom on how to increase the number of email subscribers you get.
Offer an incentive
Providing an incentive is a great way to get visitors to your website to sign up to your email list. For those users who usually can’t be bothered filling in their details, an incentive might be enough to push them over the edge. You could offer a free eBook, 15% off their next purchase, a free assessment or anything else that would appeal to users.
Keep your form simple
People hate long forms. Once people have clicked on the button to subscribe, they’ll click out again pretty quickly if they have to fill in all of their personal details. The only fields that should be compulsory are the name and email address – any other fields should be optional. Many businesses also opt to simply have a box where users can enter their email address directly to subscribe. You can always ask for more details later through your email marketing.
Use social media
If you have social media accounts for your business (which you should, but we won’t get into that now!) then use these platforms to get users subscribed. Use engaging posts to encourage people to sign up to your email newsletter – you can even run competitions where people enter by signing up.
Enlist existing subscribers
One of the best ways to get more subscribers is to use the list you already have! Encourage your current list to forward their email marketing on to friends and family. If your current customers like your product or service, chances are that they’ll be happy to let other people know about your business. As an added sweetener, you can offer special discounts or offers for friends and family.
Make your sign up obvious
Don’t hide your email sign up form at the bottom of the webpage. People aren’t going to go looking for it! Most email sign up bars are located in the top right hand side of the webpage and for good reason – it stands out and is visible throughout the website. If you’re thinking of doing a pop up email sign up request, be aware that many users find this annoying so think carefully before you utilise a full page in-your-face popup.
