A friend of mine — who shall remain nameless, haha hopefully that doesn’t sound shady — was able to double his email subscriber list size in the last 3 months… “So what?” Ok so his list was about 10,000 subscriber before, and now it’s over 20,000. “Whoa.” Exactly. And if you want to get the exact process for how to do this from someone who’s an expert at it, click the link below (and then the links I point to in the screenshot). My friend George Kao who was AWESOME enough to make ALL of his coaching program material available for free earlier this year. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1URE2r6PJ-9YqVSBHSDRFDm7iUg3svfQ8YNJFNXdF2Wo/ This single email list building strategy can transform your business, so if you’re going to do it, take the time to do it right, and don’t spam. Keep in mind we’ve got 57 more of these, baby! So if you’re getting lots of value from this, consider sending out a tweet by clicking below.
The disadvantages of email marketing surround the rejection/spam rate of the emails by the consumers’ email program, negatively affecting the delivery rate of the emails. This has somewhat been eliminated with the idea of “Opt-in” emailing, where the consumer consents to receiving the emails and therefore eliminates the idea of receiving unsolicitated emails – Ideally maintaining emails that are relevant and appropriate to each individual recipient.
1. Easily the number one most effective tool for growing my email list so far has been Twitter lead generation cards. They’re a little new (well new-ish), so a lot of people aren’t using them. I think that’s been helping. There’s a novelty factor right now. People want to see what happens when they click the button (which of course instantly places your email address, name, and Twitter username into my Mailchimp email list). Also, most people don’t realize, because the lead gen cards are a part of Twitter’s ad platform, that you don’t have to use them with ads. They are free to use alongside organic tweets. That’s mostly what I’ve been doing. Of course, already having built of sizeable Twitter audience would help with that.
Email marketing may be a great way to reach your current and past customers and influence direct conversions, but social media can also be a valuable tactic for advertising your holiday promotions. Overall, social media channels have a much higher engagement rate than email marketing – consumers are more likely to share social media content from brands than they are email content.
Before you get started sending emails to your leads and customers, you’ll need to develop a small business email marketing strategy for the types of email content that you plan to provide. This helps ensure that your email messages are purposeful and organized. Newsletters and email drip campaigns are two important email marketing formats that you should include in your strategy.
Your tip about CTA’s really hit the spot. I’ve been noticing that some of our competitors are using wordy yet highly specific buttons like ‘Get My Free Consultation Now!’ or ‘See Other Works From ____’. I was skeptic at first, but reading your logic behind it, it makes sense. I’m looking forward to implementing this on my own sites. Thank you, Brian.
When people talk about email marketing, lots of them forget to mention transactional emails. These are the automated emails you get in your inbox after taking a certain action on a website. This could be anything from filling out a form, to purchasing a product, to updating you on the progress of your order. Often, these are plain text emails that marketers set and forget.
Online advertisers can collect data on their ads' effectiveness, such as the size of the potential audience or actual audience response,:119 how a visitor reached their advertisement, whether the advertisement resulted in a sale, and whether an ad actually loaded within a visitor's view.:59 This helps online advertisers improve their ad campaigns over time.
Instead of showing the same form asking for their name and email address, Hubspot allows you to identify this lead and show a different offer, or ask a different set of questions to learn more about them over time. This is called Progressive profiling – and it allows you to send more personalised email campaigns as you gather more information on your leads.
I am happy to also ask for a plug for my family’s apparel website in the opener of said post if you think this post suggestion is a good idea. Shameless I know…..LOL! But hey maybe it will get your fans to keep submitting ideas. There might be something here to channel your fan base to get us to help your business. Think it over…..You really have reached Malcolm Gladwell Tribe status. And have done a great job with that. At this point whatever you asked the tribe to do they would deliver for you.
4: CRM & marketing automation features – Unless you’re a large enterprise, it probably makes sense to combine your email marketing tool and CRM (customer relationship management) system in one.

A trick banner is a banner ad where the ad copy imitates some screen element users commonly encounter, such as an operating system message or popular application message, to induce ad clicks. Trick banners typically do not mention the advertiser in the initial ad, and thus they are a form of bait-and-switch. Trick banners commonly attract a higher-than-average click-through rate, but tricked users may resent the advertiser for deceiving them.
Social media results are often better for brands when they use paid ads in combination with organic posts. The main reason for this is that social media channels like Facebook have access to a wealth of third-party data. This data allows you to reach a uniquely targeted group of consumers who are most likely to be interested in your holiday promotions.
