I’ve been reading The Ezine Queen’s new special report on "101 Simple, FREE and Low-Cost Ways to Quickly Build a MASSIVE EMAIL LIST” and there are some gems. The Ezine Queen takes you through step by step to identify the purpose of your ezine, how to plan for growth, and then gets to the meat.
Basically, having a great ezine is only half the battle. It doesn’t matter, if only a few people read your articles. You must get the word out, and grow your database list. In today’s overcrowded inboxes, with all the spam out there, it isn’t easy to grow your list.
In addition to the tried and true methods that you’ve no doubt heard before, some tips include (I’m not going to give them all away): setting up a separate web page or website for your ezine to promote it; use an audio invitation to get people to subscribe; start a discussion list that complements your ezine…and many, many more. I got some great new ideas that I’ll be implementing soon.
So, don’t skip these steps. First step: buy this book. Next, read it. Next, do at least three of these list-growing strategies.
