Because email marketing is all about getting as many eager email subscribers to your list as possible; here are 10 of the best email marketing subscription sources that most successful email marketing “gurus” use to acquire their targeted subscribers.
1 – You Are Personally The Best Email Marketing Subscription Source.
Most people never take full advantage of their own potential. If you use your own good common sense, you can reach new subscribers using any of the following email marketing subscription sources:
Your Own Email Signatures:
Email discussion lists are a potential goldmine for new sign ups. However, don’t just grab their email addresses. Instead, place your subscription URL address, along with your ‘call to action’, in your signature line. This way if anyone is interested, they will sign up to your newsletter or free. This is one of the best email marketing subscription sources available to newcomers.
Use Online And Offline Networking:
There is always a place to put your subscribe page on your online profile, on your business card, in your power point business presentation, or in any other location you can think of. Take full advantage of your own potential and use your imagination to come up with other networking possibilities.
Use Your Blog:
Blogs are one of the best email marketing subscription sources that most successful email marketers use to acquire targeted subscribers. Blogs are targeted to specific topics and when you provide your visitors with good useful content, and follow it with a call to action telling them why they should subscribe to your list, you will find your list steadily growing.
Use Online Forums:
Almost every online forum will allow you to include links back to your website. However, instead of following the crowd and putting in your website URL; use the URL for your squeeze page, and suggest something like “Sign up to my newsletter to get free tips and helpful information directly into your mailbox”. This tactic will give you laser targeted subscribers, especially if you have been posting useful engaging information on the forum.
Think About Using Other Email Newsletters and Lists:
If you already subscribe to email newsletters, you may find overlapping topics that can provide you with email subscription sources you can use.
2 – Forwarded Emails.
Always include subscription options, or persuasive web links in your subscriber messages, to make it easy for people to sign up to your list. These links are not intended for your existing subscribers, but for the other people your subscribers forward emails to. Forwarded emails serve as both an endorsement, and a freebie sample of your best work; which is why they are of the best email marketing subscription sources.
3 – Using ‘Recommend A Friend’ Forms.
A common way to get your current subscribers to bring their friends into your “fold”, is through ‘Member Get Member’ or ‘Recommend A Friend’ forms. Instead of asking your subscribers, offer them an incentive of some sort to recommend your subscription form to their friends. The form sends a customized email to each of the friends that they submit, telling them about your neat site, or just giving them a freebie and a ‘Thank You’. You can also give out prizes or offer a freebie for each member they recommend; but be careful with spam when using this technique.
4 – Incentives As A Subscription Source
Incentives work; and are one of the best email marketing subscription sources; that’s why everyone uses them
You can get sign ups from free gifts using one of there proven methods listed below:
The subscriber cannot receive the free gift before they give you their email address. This is probably the most widely used method.
A free ebook, document, or video page is given out containing links that encourage signing up, but that do not require an opt in to receive the document. Many blogs work this way. So do video tutorials that allow you to watch part one of the training, but require you to opt in to get the second part, and so on.
Subscriptions Both Before and After
This method is the most advanced and gives free open content, gets the opt in, and then strengthens the subscription with additional permissions to the subscriber. A deeper relationship is developed when the reader becomes the subscriber, and the subscriber then becomes a customer.
5 – Viral Email Marketing
One of the best email subscription sources is viral email marketing. Anything that people freely and vigorously pass around is considered viral, and can be used with the same ‘before’ and ‘after’ approaches as incentives. Viral email marketing is an effective opt in delivery system, because people are willing and actually want to pass the information along to other individuals.
6 – Bloggers
Bloggers are a great source of email subscribers. Using reviews, they review your download, video, or whatever and when their readers click to get it, they opt in.
If your newsletter or other incentive focuses on the blogger’s topic, they will link to it when they discuss your topic and provide you with an opt in.
With guest posting, you can mention your newsletter in your attribution line with a sign up link. ‘Sign up to get additional helpful tips here’
7 – Partner Giveaways
Partner giveaways are one of the best email marketing subscription sources. They work when several email marketers “pool” their resources, and give away one or more of their own products from a single website, to each of their subscriber lists. When the subscribers take advantage of the free products, graphics, videos, software or whatever; they must opt in to receive the product from each member and their emails are then shared by all the partners. Generally you must already have a working list of at least 300 subscribers, in order to be considered in a partnership giveaway.
8 – Using Lists From Other Email List Owners
Networking with other list owners can be one of the best email marketing subscription sources. These people have already demonstrated the willingness to subscribe to someone’s list. Unlike purchasing email subscriber lists, which I suggest you NEVER do; referrals from other list owners work
9 – Using Affiliates As Subscription Sources
Using affiliates to promote your email list is something that I haven’t personally tried. However, I’m sure you can get affiliates to send visitors to your free bonus URL, as long as you provide some monetary compensation for them. Offering a commission on any sales where the affiliate sends visitors to get your free subscriber bonus, and the visitor then purchases a product connected to the sign up, sounds like a Win Win proposition to me.
10 – Paid Email Advertising
Paid advertising can be effective, but for newbies to email marketing, it’s usually not the first pick. If you decide on this method, make sure you’re getting the best price per lead by regularly testing the Return On your Investment.
Although there are many variations of the above tactics, using some or all of these 10 best email marketing subscription sources in your marketing is sure to get more people on your list and improve your bottom line.
Think about this, if your doctor just became a doctor without any education, how willing would you be to have him perform a lifesaving operation? How about your doctor’s continued education? Like a new procedure that is not invasive, you get it done and go home, versus a 5 day hospital stay and months to recover? You would probably be a little angry that your doctor did not know of the latest advancements in his/her field. Yes, you would definitely be angry.
Online marketing is building relationships with strangers, building trust in your ability to train and guide them. Whether it is a product or service, it doesn’t matter. Anytime you have a person that parts with their money, they want to feel that you are knowledgeable and trustworthy. This is what will bring repeat customers for life.
Learning empowers us because we have the knowledge and understanding to do what needs to be done in business and in life. There is no greater sense of accomplishment than learning a new idea and immediately implementing it and seeing results. It also builds the self confidence that entrepreneurs needs to operate their chosen business.
Feeding your brain through learning is one in the same as feeding your body. When you learn new things it feeds your brain. This is a vital necessity to your survival outside of online marketing arena. When you become complacent in your continued education, your brain no longer needs to work very hard, you get into the mode of “mindless” operations that make for a very mundane business operation. For most, it then becomes a J.O.B. and that certainly defeats the purpose of working from home
Learning skills in online marketing is an ongoing education process. There is always something new to learn. There is always something you can learn from someone else. When you get yourself into the “I know everything there is to know” mindset, then you leave yourself in a “my business will no longer grow” position.
Online marketing is not one of those things you learn once, like riding a bike, and that’s it. You now have it for life. It is more along the lines of, getting a tune up on your car every six months to keep it running smoothly and efficiently.
If you dedicate one quarter of your daily tasks to learning, and three quarters of it for your online marketing tasks, you now have a winning combination to accelerate your online marketing efforts. Hence, your business begins to grow because you are growing.
If you have been in this industry as long as I have and are still struggling, it is time to get back to the basics of online marketing.
The internet is a massive goldmine of opportunity but being an online business isn’t always as straight forward as people think. Internet Marketing is one important element that you must not ignore but it is not the only element. Good online business management is also critical to the success of your company.
For people starting new businesses online getting the right strategies and processes in place is often something that is ignored. And IM(internet marketing) can be even more daunting especially if the business lacks direction.
Even for established companies with mature business processes in place, the move into the online world can be a troublesome one. Many of the traditional rules of business disappear in the ever changing landscape of the internet.
One option is to turn to an internet business consultant or internet marketing consultant.
IM consultants have been around for a number of years now. Most have a focus on SEO although in my opinion modern internet marketing is so much more. If companies really want to beat the competition then it is essential that that look into running social media campaigns (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube etc), viral campaigns, affiliate campaigns and more.
An internet business consultant is a relatively new phenomena, these are specialists who examine every aspect of you business to ensure that your online business is a success. An internet business consultant will go into an organisation and examine the way in which the business operates online and looks to improves this; IM and SEO is just one element of a successful online business.
There are also many resources online for companies or individuals who lack the financial resources to bring in a professional consultant. Finding the good from the bad information is difficult especially as the internet is forever changing. The resources online generally revolve around internet marketing and SEO, finding help and guidance regarding management of your online presence is more difficult.
A professional online business management consultant or internet marketing consultant are worth their weight in gold. They can transform a failing online presence into a massively successful element of your business. And if you become a success on the internet, the financial rewards can be out of this world.

This guide is written exclusively for business owners that want to learn how to improve the response rate for company email messages. This new guide can be found at this link http://marketersblackbook.com/email/how-to-write-emails-that-sell.
This guide includes sales techniques and an overview of the industry average response rates to help companies achieve better marketing campaigns with customers.
Companies that build lists of consumers online typically use these lists for announcements of news or upcoming products and services. Some companies that use email to sell new products or services to customers use specific strategies to achieve higher rates of return.
Since email can be informal and formal, the approach that is used can often determine the success ratio that is received through this form of marketing. The new guide released online provides an overview of the best narratives to use.
Consumers that search for products and services use more than a company website when searching online. The average person now searches for social media signals, consumer review websites and other sources to locate information about a company.
The way these consumers are informed can directly impact the results that companies can achieve when using a marketing strategy. List building through social media platforms and other areas are mentioned in the brand new published guide.
The new training programs that are offered from MarketersBlackBook.com are designed exclusively for entrepreneurs and business owners that are building brand names or companies online.
