Building a List
Building your email & SMS list can feel a bit overwhelming. But this is time well spent because people on your list are more likely to buy from you, and that is the whole is it? So where do you even begin? We have put together our top Four strategies for building your list effectively.
- Create a Pop-op on your website and give something awesome away in exchange for their info. For Example: Healthy Recipes, Workout Routines, Health Tip, Ebook. * You can share this link on social media & on Blog posts as well.
- Host a LIVE Virtual & In -person class and collect their info to join. This is a great way to get yourself out there as well as build your list.
- Be a Guest on a blog or podcast. This is a great way to get your name out there and get infant of a whole new audience. While on the podcast or in the blog make sure to have a clear CTA (Call to action) that you want people to take after its done. Whether that is sharing your freebie, getting them to sign up for a Giveaway, or a featured program.
- Utilize Pintrest! We know what you’re thinking “One more thing to learn.” And the answer is yes but we believe its worth it. Pintrest is a search engine and so if you post high quality images leading to high quality posts on your website, it’ll get repinned by your followers, whose followers will also see your pin, and the reach just keeps going and going and going.
Ok now you have your list now what? It’s time to create an awesome sequence. This is where the power of SMS & Email Marketing come to fruition. You want to create a sequence that each person gets automatically after they get on your list. Do not cut corners here, this is make it or break it time.
We suggest creating multiple sequences that are tailored to how or why they subscribed. This is called Segmenting your list, marketers who use segmented campaigns note as much as a 760% increase in revenue. (source) Why? Because you speak directly to that person and how they come in contact with your brand.
You also want to make sure you create enough email and SMS interactions so that they see your brand enough times to take action. We like to create 5 emails and 2 SMS per Sequence over a period of 10 days (that is 1 email every other day)
Not everyone is going to take action on your first sequence. But like the good saying goes if at first you don’t succeed try try again.
Create a good and strong follow up sequence that you are constantly adding to. The average person needs over 11 touches with a business before they take action so make sure to stay infant of your target audience.
Creating a strong followup sequence requires what we can the 80 – 20 rule of value. This is where you want to offer 80% value for 20% of asks. Meaning when you write your sequence write it with the mentality of adding value not trying to sell. Create a relationship, connect, and serve your email list so that when you are selling something that 20% of the time they are more likely to BUY.
