One of the best ways to grow your website is to use opt-in list building. This type of marketing campaign allows you to keep in touch with visitors who want to know what is going on with your company and your website. This type of marketing is not something that is brand new. In fact, companies have been doing it for a while with newsletters, offers and even free eBooks which customers can get when they sign up. Although giving things like a free eBook may sound like a lot, an eBook is something that you do only once while at the same time you could be sending several ways to get the customer to buy from you again.
In order to get an opt-in list building campaign going, you have to start by making the option attractive to customers. Give them something that they want so that they can sign up to your list. You can start by giving them a small discount in future purchases or information related to your website. When customers find something that they like and that looks good to sign up for they will be more willing to want to stay in touch with your company.
In order to make sure that customers do not hesitate to join your opt-in list building you should make sure to always follow good practices when you have customers’ information. It is a good idea not to sell their information to just anybody. Instead, try partnering with other companies that are related to the thing that you do. If you have an auto dealership for example you can partner with parts companies or other companies that can enhance their new vehicle. Make sure that people signing up know that they might get in touch with that company via email as well.
