Through your Landing Page
Now, I don’t want to hear that you don’t have a landing page or a website, because if you don’t have it, then I believe you are gonna miss the best opportunity to grow your email list fast and for free. So I recommend you to just build a landing page for free using blogger.com or you can watch this step by step guide to create a landing page for free on YouTube.
Now I assume that you have built a landing page or a website.
- Your landing page must have an opt-in form. An opt-in form is where subscribers enter their email address.
- Next Step is; Drive people to Your Landing Page, which is easy, if you watch some videos on youtube about SEO, you can easily implement strategies to drive traffic to your website.
Despite coming from different industries and playing different roles, all of these landing pages do a few common things well:
- They refer to specific lists.
Whether it’s attracting blog readers, training subscribers or potential campaign contributors, each page is very specific to the type of email subscribers it is sold to.
- Clear calls to action
(CTAs) are included on every landing page. In each example there is a single large button with a simple field. This is the default landing page optimization strategy, but that doesn’t mean it’s ineffective!
- Offer Some Stuff
Offering something to your audience in favor of grabbing their email is the best strategy out there, you can offer an ebook, or audiobook or any other thing that is valuable for your audience.
Build Email List Using Facebook

If you have a facebook page and a landing page where you can get emails of your visitors, you can change the call to action button of your facebook page to “Sign Up” and start getting emails through facebook.
