Once you get your business up and running, you will want to begin building your email list. Building your email list is not too complicated and it requires using a mailing list management system.
To begin, you will need to have a form on your site where people can register to begin receiving email from you. This will give you permission to begin sending email to them on as regular basis.
Building a mailing list is a great way to build the know, like and trust factor with potential customers and stronger relationship with them.
It is very important to use your email list wisely. You never want to send information that your specific readers will not want. Do not send an email simply for the sake of sending something out. If you don’t have pertinent information to send, don’t send anything. You want to remember to send updates that provide VALUE… always.
So, what do you send then? Content that will provide your ideal clients useful tips or how-to’s, studies, etc that is related to what you do. If you don’t have enough information to send on a weekly basis, then start with once a month. You can build from there as your list grows and as your business grows.
Sending out content regularly is a great way to stay top of mind, and allows you to provide great value to your potential customers.
If you’re wondering where to look for an email management system that’s right for your size business, here are a couple of suggestions: Constant Contact, Mail Chimp, IContact, AWeber, and Infusion Soft.
Building your email list begins with your first subscriber. Make sure you have a registration form that is easy to use and an email management program that fits your needs. Then begin building your list one by one, email by email and soon you will begin to see your efforts pay off!
