I’ve been building an email list for more than 15 years, and many of my readers ask me for the magic bullet that builds a qualified list quickly.
So far, I haven’t found it.
What I have found are many ways to build a list, including those on social media.
For example, my LinkedIn profile includes one Project and one Publication that lets people know I publish email tips on how to get free publicity a twice-a-week. They both lead to this page, which I use to “sell” people on the benefits of signing onto my list. I created the page using LeadPages (affiliate link). It lets you build beautiful opt-in pages and sales pages.
I’ll share more tips when I’m a guest on a Blab hosted by social media expert Melody Jones from noon to 1 p.m. Eastern Time on Thursday, May 5. It’s called “How to Use Social Media to Build an Email List.” If you’re familiar with Blab, you can register here. If not, keep reading.
