1) Put up a good web form in your site that immediately follows the theme or niche of your content. This form should link to your email autoresponder, if you do not have one you can do some research on various companies that offer this service, for me I use Aweber and you are welcome to use the following link to learn more http://briancharleslewis.com/aweber Remember that your homepage should provide a quick good impression, it needs to be informative, concise and offer the visitor a way to receive additional information If your website visitor finds something that he or she likes and turns them on, they are likely to sign up, they are telling you that you have what they are interested in and would like to receive more.
A good web form for subscribing to an opt-in list is not hard to create and are provided with most service providers. A great way to attract subscribers is to offer them a “freebie” of sorts that relate to your niche in exchange for their information, be sure to let them know they will receive regular and relevant content from you and that they don't want to miss out. Then there should be an area where they could put in their names and e-mail address. This web form will automatically collect he data and place them on your email mailing list. As more people sign in, your list will be growing so be sure to provide them with relevant information in your niche so that they are eager to open your emails.
2) As mentioned in the first tip, make your homepage or capture page is clean, professional and represents your message well. For your site, you need to have well written articles or videos and descriptions of your site that encourage the visitor to take action. As for your capture page, this is designed to do just what is says “capture” information, so be sure to have only your freebie offer on the web form and some brief compelling information about your email list, newsletter or catalog etc. .
3) Timing, how often you write your list is up to you. Keep in mind the you can write your list everyday as long as you are proving value and do not just write to be sending out offers. In my opinion you should provide tips and strategies that relate to your product or service as well as providing links to them. Your primary goal should be to make sure they are receiving value and to like you so much they never want to leave, face it a returning customer is more likely to bring in more business over time.
4) Keep your list clean and private, promise them you will not give away, rent or lease their information. Never lose the trust your customers have entrusted you and continue to nurture them. If you provide e-mails to others and they get spammed, many will probably unsubscribe to you or even report you. Remember, a good reputation will drive in more traffic and subscribers as well as strengthen the loyalty of your customers. This is relationship marketing, the value you provide and the integrity you practice will help to ensure you a long and prosperous career.
