Most effective way to grow my email list for free

13 replies
Hello guys,

What in your opinion/experience is the most effective way to grow an email list for free?

I currently have only 17 subscribers and I'm constantly promoting my landing page through social media (mainly Pinterest and Twitter).

    There are a lot of methods you can use to promote your landing page for free like Youtube, Blog posting, Facebook, Joint ventures ect.
    If you have your own blog, you can ask the people to join the newsletter.

      And what would be the best place to look for joint ventures (apart from this forum)?

        If you're not willing to invest anything in building your list into a quality resource for your business - it will probably never be one. If you want to speed-up your chances for success, drop the word 'free' from your vocabulary. It's deadly!

        Cheers. - Frank

    I think it's mainly on Internet marketing forums you can find joint venture partners... Bt u can try out Facebook Groups bt I wouldn't recommend that (because u don't know who runs the group) and anyway before they open a group on Facebook they'll definitely be in forums like this.

    One very powerful free method is guest posting on some popular blogs in your niche. You must have incredible content and writing skills though.

      Thanks for the replies everybody!

      And what would you say about Craigslist? I'm thinking about sending direct emails to people interested in Making Money Online, the only questions are:

      Most importantly - in what sections on Craigslist do I find such listings?

      And do you think it will be effective?

        This is prohibited on Craigslist. Anyone doing this on CL is purposely violating their policies, so is that someone you want to work with? You would also be violating their policies by doing what you wrote. Not a good way to start a business.

    Lets be realistic, if you want to grow your list QUICKLY then you will have to spend at least some money. Solo ads are the fastest way to build your list.

    There are, however, free methods that you can use but you will have to invest a lot of your time. Viral marketing, is a great example of a free method to get TONS of traffic to your landing page for free.

    I started out buying solo ads until I got a few hundred on my list and then joined a couple different adswap sites to build my list to over 6000 in under a year. Now I am able to buy paid traffic to my free offers and segment my list of customers, swaps, buyers and selling solos.

      I've never built a list from scratch using solos and ad swaps (though I did grow a list using affiliate link JVs once upon a time). Did you just fund the account out of pocket until you started swapping, or was your squeeze page monetized such that it was, in essence, a self-sustaining operation?
