What’s The First Thing That Comes To Mind When I Say “Building Your Newsletter List?”
Is it “I can’t ask people for their email!”
Or maybe it’s “People only give me a fake email when I ask.”
Here’s a sure-fire way to solve the problems of “asking” and getting “fake” addresses: run a simple contest.
One of the best ways to build your email list is to give the person something in return for sharing their email address with you. And the easiest way to “give” is to run a contest with a “big” prize for the winner and give everyone who enters the contest something small and easily deliverable for joining.
For example, You can run a contest to give away a small painting or limited edition print. And everyone who enters receives a “free gift.” This can be a pdf tip sheet on how to care for art, a coupon for a discount, or a digital photo download.
When you give something, you get something. And you build your newsletter list in the process!
