4. You need call-outs on your website with offer incentives, enabling you to grow your email list. Simple offers, often called “Calls to Action,” that are relevant and have enough value to the visitor to be an incentive for them to sign-up are key in growing your email list. Coupons, free downloads, ebooks, access to webinars or videos are all methods that can be used. The call-out directs the user to a landing web page where they can view the details of the offer and enter their name and email address to gain access and join your email list. Use incentives that are relevant to your audience to gain the most traction for new sign-ups.

5. Email remains critical to marketing. Email’s get handled because they are in the inbox. This is the follow-up to the call-outs above. Growing your email list is important because if done well, it is a list of qualified, customers and potential customers. The call-outs help you capture leads and then once a visitor has joined your email list it is important to have a series of helpful, scheduled emails go out over a course of seven to 10 days that offer information, insight, and help build trust with the reader. This is the gateway to build rapport and grow sales.
