Quick Tips for Growing Your Email List

Growing an Email List is an ongoing task.

Your Email List is your lifeline for connecting with new and established customers.

The reward comes when you start seeing increased sales.


  • Is Personal.
  • Is Targeted.
  • You Own the List. You don't own Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. When Social Media platforms change their policies (which they often do) your efforts could all be for naught.

Our Favorite Tips for Growing Your Email List

Online Tips:

PopUp Form
Personalize a non-intrusive PopUp Form on your website to collect list subscribers.

Text to Join
A quick and easy way to collect new email addresses and grow your contact list. Just choose a keyword and promote it at your place of business or events. New subscribers can text the keyword to a generated phone number and submit their Email address to automatically join a mailing list of your choice.

Currently, Text-to-Join is only available within the continental United States, and not in U.S. territories or elsewhere internationally.

Facebook “Join My List” App
The Join My List app for Facebook allows you to collect new contacts directly from your Facebook business page by adding a “Join My List” tab to the left-hand side of your page. When visitors to your Facebook business page click the tab, they can sign-up for your mailing list through a customizable sign-up form.

Write Two-Part Blog Posts Rather than Single Posts
Add a subscribe box at the end of your post letting people know to Subscribe if they’d like to be notified when Part 2 is live on your Blog.

Offline Tips:
