The 3 Steps to Email Marketing

Step 1: Come up with a free signup offer

You want visitors to subscribe to your list, which means you need to give them a reason for doing so. This “reason why” is what we call the free signup offer, incentive, or giveaway.

Now, it’s critical to consider what your target audience really want. Present an unappealing offer, and you won’t get many signups. On the other hand, with a truly irresistible freebie that perhaps solves a specific and urgent problem your audience have, you’ll be building a massive email list fast.

Step 2: Set up your email capture page

For this, two things are required.

First, choose an email capture tool, such as the always-popular Aweber, GetResponse, or Mailchimp.

Next, build your email capture page. This can either be done manually (or hiring a web designer), or by using one of the many powerful solutions available online. For example, LeadPages, Instapages, Clickfunnels and more.

Step 3: Start emailing your subscribers

As you start getting subscribers, follow up immediately with a first “welcome email”, and proceed to begin developing a relationship with them by emailing daily, weekly, monthly, whatever your goals are.

And when you have offers that truly benefit your subscribers, let them know about it. This way your customers benefit, and your business profits. A win-win marketing strategy.

Simple, right?

Indeed, it is.

The KEY to success with email marketing is being able to convert your subscribers to customers through the power of email copywriting and communication.

Do that, and your business will start outperforming the competition in ways you never imagined possible, especially those who have yet to take advantage of email marketing.
