The 5 Best Ways To Quickly Build An Email List.

Apart from sales, collecting details of prospects is a critical business metric that can result in future sales. Here are five ways to grow your database of contacts.

1) Create an opt-in form on your website.

This form allows website visitors to provide their name and email address to subscribe to your mailing list.

Adding a sign-up form to your website is one of the easiest ways to build your email list. Simply create a form with a few fields (name, email address, and perhaps website URL) and add it to your website’s header, sidebar, or footer. This can be done with your web builder or added with your email software (like Mailchimp, Active Campaign, Zoho etc.)

2) Integrate sign-up forms into your marketing materials.

If you distribute marketing materials (e.g., brochures, flyers, business cards), include an opt-in form on each one. This will allow people to sign up for your email list even if they don’t visit your website.

3) Promote your sign-up form on social media.

Promote your sign-up form on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. You can even use paid advertising to drive more traffic to your form.

4) Run a contest or giveaway.

Everyone loves a giveaway! Run a contest on your social media channels where entrants can win a prize by following your account and tagging a friend in the comments. You could also randomly select one lucky winner from among all of the participants. Running a contest or giveaway is a great way to attract new subscribers.

5) Lead Magnet - a lead magnet is a reason for prospects to complete a form to recceive the asset. This could be a quiz, e-book, white paper, or other valuable tool
