Everyone knows building an email list is important.
Ohh you didn’t know? Well...now you do.
If you have a website, then you’re in luck because you can automate the list building process.
Question is where do you put them?
Here are my top 3 favourite places to add sign up forms on your website to grow your list at hyper speed. I call them my favorites because this is how I’VE subscribed to things and trust me...I’m not easy.
(Psst! If you’re reading this and you don’t have a website, WE NEED TO TALK. NOW.)
1. The Header
You know that thing that fills your entire screen when you type in “www.fancypwebsite.com”? That’s the header. Placing a sign up button or form on your header is one of the best ways to grow your email list. Here’s an example from Danielle Leslie, a 7 figure course creator.
2. A Pop Up
I know. A pop up can be really annoying to see when you’re in the middle of something. But if done right, it can be pretty powerful. Amy Porterfield’s pop ups are some of my favourites and she says that anytime from 10 seconds to 3 minutes is the sweet spot. I’ve joined her list over and over again through this method, so don’t underestimate this little guy. I recently did this for my client's website, take a look. Just HOURS after posting about her new website, she made a sale!
(Hey, building forms, pop ups, and all that tech stuff can be a big headache. Think of me as your personal Panadol. Click here, and in 20 minutes, that headache will be gone. Go on, it's free.)
3. In between blog posts
This method is freaking GOLD.
Placing 2 to 3 opt in forms in between your blog posts is guaranteed to boost email sign ups. The trick is to offer something similar to the theme of the post. But just because it's free doesn't mean it should be crap. Make your offer so irresistible, that your readers will have no choice but to give you their email.
A company that does this so well is Teachable, an online course hosting platform. I've signed up so many times through their blog posts, they've stopped sending me emails. Check out an example below.
I've done it twice in this post, if you missed it, reread it again.
Actually, you can keep reading, because I'm about to do it again.
Thank you so much for reading this post, I hope you found it useful.
