15 Tested and Proven Ways to Build Your Subscriber List
A list of engaged subscribers is one of the most effective and reliable marketing resources. A good list so valuable that it can’t be bought. Why? Because when subscribers sign up for your list, they’re signing up to hear from you and your company. Subscribers have to be earned. What are the best ways to build a list? We’ve collected the top 15 to share with you today.
The permission model allows you to fill your audience with people who are genuinely interested in your brand and what you have to say
With information collected during sign-up (or later), you can precisely segment your list and design your email communication to suit your reader’s preferences.
As you attract qualified leads, you’ll be able to guide them through the decision-making process by aligning content to specific buying cycle stages.
Take a look at the 15 tips we’ve collected to help you build your email marketing list:
Offer quality content. Nobody gives up their email address for free. If you want to build a valuable relationship and engage your audience, you need to provide content that is worthwhile and interesting.
Put sign-up forms on every web page. Your sign-up form should be everywhere your potential subscribers are. Make sure it’s visible and easy to fill out.
Use social media to collect email addresses. Integrate your sign-up forms with social media platforms. Driving traffic from multiple sources allows you to build a strong email marketing list much faster.
Design your sign-up form carefully. Ask only for information you plan to use. A good rule of thumb is that less is more — the shorter the sign-up form, the higher the conversion rate.
Show samples of your content. Let your subscribers know what they are signing up for. Use your older content samples to “sell” the email sign-up.
Include a call to action. Put a call to action in your submit button, e.g. Sign me up! This makes the sign-up process more engaging and improves the conversion ratio.
Give away freebies. Think of a relevant incentive for your audience (e-book, infographic, whitepaper) and provide it for free.
Ask subscribers to share. Take the time to prepare valuable, shareable content. Remember that putting the social share buttons is not enough; you still need to ask your subscribers to use them.
Build a content distribution strategy. Producing great content is only half the battle. Make sure it’s visible to the right audience. Define who your ideal audience is and find out where they like to congregate online. Then choose communication channels accordingly.
Publish landing pages. Create a squeeze page where visitors can download premium content in exchange for their email address. A dedicated web page helps users focus on the call to action and increases conversions.
Include testimonials on your landing page. Social proof helps build trust toward a brand and its products. Use testimonials from satisfied customers to help visitors make a decision.
Blog regularly. Great content brings more traffic. Develop a realistic content publishing schedule and stick to it.
Guest post on popular blogs. Publishing your content on other blogs is a great way to build relationships with other bloggers in your industry and introduce yourself to new people. Include a backlink to your blog, and your blog’s search rankings will go up.
Collect email addresses at offline events. Be ready to collect email addresses at trade shows and conferences. Ask for business cards or use the Forms on the Go app to instantly add people to your list.
It’s time to get started.
Now you know a handful of great ways to build one of the most effective marketing assets — your email marketing list.

The announcement, which comes quickly after the news that AOL is taking over the display advertising business from Bing, means that Bing Ads will no longer serve content ads on Microsoft, Yahoo and their network of partner sites.
Bing Ads will continue to have content ads on Windows Media, also,in apps for the Windows Phone.
The reason for the change from Bing’s perspective,was that only a small percentage of Bing ads were offered on the content network.
Google Display Network
The Google Display Network or GDN, is a compilation of websites including Google websites that show AdWords ads, like Google Finance,Google plus, Gmail, Blogger, and YouTube.
There are actually 189 Google owned sites and applications,many related to the Android OS,developed and owned by Google.
If you’ve ever seen an AdWords ad on Google Hangouts, Google Now or in your Gmail account, it is on the GDN.
First go to your Google adwords account at www.adwords.google.com. Go to the campaign where you’ll be running the new ad and click the “Ads” tab. Click “New Ad” and then select Display Ad Builder. Build and save your ad.

Gemini is a disparate advertising platform that places adverts predicated on the industry,niche and content in which the advertiser has worked and has been affiliated.
It provides search text ads on mobile devices across Yahoo and the Yahoo partner network, as well as native ads across the network.
Native ads can also appear within the content stream including the Yahoo results search page.
Gemini search ads,and campaigns created in Yahoo’s Gemini,are not shown on the Bing, Microsoft, or Bing affiliate properties advertising networks.
There was a legal contract signed between Yahoo and Microsoft in February of 2010.
However,the deal did not work out as expected from a revenue perspective.
In April 2015,the Yahoo-MS search contract came up for renewal.It was then agreed that Yahoo could deliver 49% of its desktop search queries to whomever it wished.
Microsoft took over the other 51% of the Yahoo ads.
Yahoo kept full control over mobile searches, virtually the same as when the original agreement was signed in 2010.
Keep in mind, in February of 2010 mobile searches were seen as negligible.
Yahoo announced as of October 2015, it would be partnering with Google to provide listings and ads for some of the 49% of desktop search queries.
It will also use Google for mobile adverts.

Social Media Link Building
Social Media Link Building is a method of alternative advertising, because it is where many people spend most of their online time.
You need to link your content on popular social media sites for online business exposure relative to your known audience.
It’s an opportunity to gain important social media backlinks to your site.
Some of the social media sites to which I’ll call your attention,that’ll afford important backlinks are:
To add a group to your favorites list:
1) Click “Home” on the top bar. 2) In the left menu, find the category you’d like to add to your favorite’s list. Hover over the category name,in this case “groups” and then click “More”.
It will bring up a page with the groups you’re in and other relevant groups.
When you find pertinent niche group,for your niche on Facebook,it’ll give you the opportunity to advertise on the group page gratis,and to leave your website link,and/or your offer’s landing page link.
Also,you can easily direct an advert to your Facebook page. Just install your page’s URL in the group’s post box and your page’s cover will magically appear. You’ll have a free advert right to your Facebook page.
Keep in mind,that there are savvy marketers who are able to leverage Facebook as their primary website.
Moreover,they’re able to avoid the domain and hosting fees that come with a website.
My Funstuff Facebook page has a “watch video” button which will take you directly to my http://funstuff.bizmarc.biz, so an enquirer would have to go to my Facebook page and then to my website.
If you had an affiliate offer, you would build the Facebook page relative to your offer’s landing page.
