Here’s how you can start growing your list:

#4 In your social media profiles put the link to your email list in your bio.

 

#5 If you are able to direct message on the social media platform invite followers to your email list.

 

#6 Use Pinterest to draw free traffic to your blog if this social network is a good fit. Then collect the lead via a popup form on your website or form that is within your blog post.

 

#7 Use Facebook’s paid advertising to collect leads. You can spend as low as 5 cents per lead.

 

#8 Offer something enticing to encourage people to signup to your list like a free eBook, report or a discount for example.

 

#9 Tell people what they can expect from joining your newsletter. For example, “Free hair growth tips, discounts and offers”.
