So, you want to build an email list. You’ve probably done your research already and found a bunch of articles that list 50, 80, or even 100 ways to do it. Sounds great! But here are the questions that might arise when you start collecting contacts:

  • Sign-up forms. Putting it up on the website is one thing. Setting it up correctly to bring you quality leads is completely another story. What do I do so that my sign-up form brings conversion?
  • Social media. How do I turn my followers into subscribers?
  • Lead magnets. Everybody says they are a must. Which type is the best for me? How do I promote it to get the leads that will turn into sales?

If these are the questions you don’t have concrete answers for, our Foolproof Guide might come in handy. In it, we didn’t just list the ways — we explained how to make the most of each of them. You will find 21 ways to grow your email list, each of them thoroughly explained.
