How To Start An Email List – 3 Basic Steps — 8 Comments

  1. Awesome article John! I have always wanted to build email list but I think that it is somehow hard to achieve. I simply don’t have an e-book to promote but also I don’t have product. Do you think that it is good to make email least based on new posts? I mean like when I publish new post they get notification?

    • Thanks very much for visiting my website and for posting a comment on my “How To Start An Email List – 3 Basic Steps” blog post Daniel.

      Building an email list sounds quite difficult for a beginner. I must admit it is time consuming and requires a lot of testing to get the autoresponder set up right and loaded with pre-written emails, but once done, it does save a lot of time. Also, we all know that “the money is in the list”, so it is well worth the trouble of setting up yours.

      As I say in my article, the main problem is to select the autoresponder that you will like to work with, for a long time, as once you have it up and running, if in a few months time you decide that you want to go for another one, you will lose the majority of your subscribers, because you will have to invite them to opt in again. Therefore, it is very important that you make the right choice right at the beginning.

      I have used just about everyone that are available and the one that I can highly recommend is TrafficWave. It is the most reliable, easy to use and cheapest of all in the long run.

      I would suggest that you start building up your mailing list now. It might take time to grow but it is well worth it Daniel.

      Let me know if you have any questions.

  4. I have a registration form at the right side of my page, but not at the bottom like you say. Thinking about it, this is a great idea, because the second people start scrolling the registration form at the right side is gone. I will implement this right away!

    Thanks for the tip on the autoresponder, I will check out TrafficWave. I’ve heard horror stories about MailChimp about the closed accounts and it’s definately not a good choice for Internet Marketeers.

    • Thanks very much for visiting my website and commenting on my “How To Start An Email List – 3 Basic Steps” article Jurgen. I am glad that you learned something that you can use on your website. At the bottom of your blog posts is one of the best places, if not the best, to insert the signup form to your newsletter, because, as you can understand, if someone took the time to read all the way down your article, he/she must be really interested in reading more of your posts. 

      Also, it is well known that many people read the first couple of paragraphs and if it grabs their attention, they often scroll down the page to find out who you are, how much it costs, etc., so a good place to grab their email address.

      But other places are not to be neglected, like within your article, and of course, it has to be on the sidebar, and preferably at the top.

      The, although I am not very much in favor of popups or pop-unders, etc. they convert quite well.

      I thought that you might also be interested in reading How To Build An Effective Landing Page, hope you enjoy and learn more from it. Let me know if you have any questions.
