So without further delay, let’s get started!
Boost Signup Rates
If you’ve been struggling to get subscribers to join your mailing list, it’s time to take a closer look at your squeeze page.
What is the first thing that people see when they visit your squeeze page? Are they given a good reason to join your list? Are you targeting the right audience with your squeeze page offer or overall marketing message?
More often than not, your squeeze page offer will make or break your ability to funnel subscribers into your mailing list. Slapping up a good looking squeeze page with an opt-in box just isn’t enough. You need to give your visitor’s a reason as to why they should hand over their name and email address.
It’s likely that you’ve heard of the power of a valuable incentive offer, but in case you haven’t, an incentive offer is simply an exchange of information. Your visitor subscribes to your list, giving you their contact information, and in return, you provide them with some sort of free offer. This could be a free download, newsletter, tips, discounts, or anything else that appeals to your market segment.
The problem is that many people overlook the importance of a high quality, unique incentive offer. Keep in mind that a powerful incentive will not only boost sign up rates, but it will help you set yourself apart from all of the other email marketer’s in your niche. So, how can you instantly increase your squeeze page signup rate?
Because many people who are focusing on building a list aren’t willing to go the extra mile in delivering real value when it comes to their incentive offer. In fact, most people look at incentive offers as “throwaway” products – which they believe they’d otherwise never be able to sell. So, they give it away.
The problem with this is that if you don’t really believe your own incentive is valuable, your visitor’s are likely to feel the same way. Giving away an outdated product? Offering a stale ebook that’s based on private label content? If you don’t pay attention to the quality of your incentive offer, not only will your signup rates suffer, but your overall reputation in your market will as well.
Do you really want your subscriber’s first impression of you to be based on some cheap, watered down, low quality product that you’re offering on your squeeze page?
When it comes to email marketing, your creditability – your brand – your image, and how well you’re trusted, begins with that first communication.
Your offer, your marketing messages and your broadcasts will either form a strong connection between your company and your subscriber’s, or it will drive people away. Don’t make the common mistake of overlooking the power of your incentive offer. It represents the doorway for visitor’s to become part of your online community, and you need to do it right.
If you turn things around, and offer something you could easily sell for $97.00, you’ll be blown away at just how quickly you’ll be able to build your list with very little effort involved. And remember, a higher opt-in rate means that you’ll need far less traffic in order to build a monster-sized email list!
Tip: Purchase rights to a high quality product that is not normally given away in your market and offer it on your squeeze page.
While this can be based on private label rights content, make sure that you tweak the material and repackage it with a fresh face (new cover – new table of contents and extra value) before delivering it to your list. You could also create an extensive compilation of training material derived from quality private label sources such as multiple reports in one package, all focusing on your main topic.
Remember, your incentive offer needs to be of tremendous value, but also needs to be strictly targeted towards your market. If you are planning on running an email list that offers information and products on social marketing – your incentive offer should be based around social marketing.
If you need to target different segments of a market, consider creating an email list for each specific group. Each email list should have a theme, making it easy to deliver the kind of information that your subscriber’s are expecting.
Boost Open Rates
Once you’ve begun to build an email list, the next step is to start communicating with your subscriber’s. Even if you only have a small group of subscriber’s, you need to open the channel of communication early on, connecting to each person as if you are speaking to them directly. Don’t wait for your list to build up before you make contact, otherwise you run the risk of subscribers’ forgetting who you are, or why they joined your list.
But regular communication is only the first step in doubling your income through email marketing. In order to make more money, you need to maximize your email open rates – so that more people see (and respond) to your offer!
One of the easiest ways to do this is by creating motivational subject lines for every email or broadcast you send out. While you want to avoid the spam filters, you need each email subject line to provoke curiosity, to engage your audience and to motivate them to click on your email and read your message.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with different subject lines, because every subscriber base will respond differently to certain ‘triggers’. You can be as controversial or as conservative as you are comfortable with, as long as you are exploiting the power of curiosity, because it’s a very strong motivator! Keep your email subject lines short, descriptive and provide the reader with a reason to open your email.
Note: Avoid the “Re: Subject Line” approach because while you want to use curiosity-driven subject lines, you never want to outright mislead your subscriber’s.
The “Re” subject line tactic is designed to make your subscribers believe that your email is a personal response to a previous conversation, and while it can be effective at boosting open rates, it can also be a major cause for people to unsubscribe from your list.
If they feel tricked, conned or lied to, they will stop opening your emails, so focus on engaging your audience and connecting with your target market with fun and entertaining strategies, rather than with questionable, unprofessional gimmicks.

Increase List Size
We’ve covered a few ways of boosting open rates and signup rates, but in order for either of these strategies to work, you need people who actually see your offer! This is where increasing list size comes into play because it’s all about driving high quality – targeted traffic to your squeeze pages so that you can flood your mailing list with new, active subscribers!
What is an easy way to instantly funnel quality traffic to your squeeze page?
Ad swaps have been responsible for fuelling countless new email lists with thousands of quality leads, because not only is it an affordable method of securing subscribers, but it’s one of the easiest ways to jam your list with red-hot, hungry buyers!
You see, ad swaps make it very easy to directly target your market because rather than funnel traffic to your squeeze page from a dozen different sources, you’re able to tap into existing email lists where the work of establishing communication and conditioning buyers has already been done by the list owner!
The objective with ad swaps is an exchange of resources.
The key to a successful ad swap is in finding marketers who are at the same level in marketing as you are, because you’ll want to make sure that you can deliver an equal number of views and subscribers, as they are going to give to you.
While ad swaps can be a basic advertisement exchange, where someone agrees to send out an ad for your product and you do the same in return, the most effective ad swaps focus on exchanging FREE and VALUABLE information and resources.
For example, if you are involved in the work at home market; there is an abundance of ad swap opportunities available to you. Think about the countless start-up work at home sites catering to single parents, or the work at home mom communities.
Many of these websites are just starting to generate traffic, and are building a very loyal subscriber base of repeat visitors and customers.
If you were to contact one of these publishers and offer them the opportunity to provide a valuable free resource to their subscribers, chances are, they’ll be responsive.
They get to provide a free, valuable resource to their subscribers (which makes them look good and builds positive awareness within their market), and in exchange, you get free advertising.
It doesn’t matter what market you are involved in, there’s bound to be ad swap opportunities available to you.
Of course, you will want to build a decent size list yourself, before you approach potential partners so that you are able to deliver a service in return.
Even if you have a smaller list of only 200-300, if you have a high open-rate and your subscribers are responsive, you have a viable asset to offer a potential ad swap partner.
When you’re ready to find potential ad swap partners, begin by searching your market for start-up websites since these are often the easiest to approach.
And keep in mind that even if you contact someone with a list that’s much bigger than your own, autoresponder accounts allow for easy segmenting, so the list owner could choose to email only a certain number of subscribers, based on what you are able to deliver in return.
Forums, social communities and groups are all great ways of quickly locating potential ad swap partners in your market, so take time to do your research and compile a listing of 20-30 potential partners.
Be honest with your numbers! Tell them how many subscribers you have, what your open-rate and response rate is as well as what your newsletter focus is. You want to make sure that your offer matches what your partner is offering.
When emailing potential ad swap partners, focus on THEM.
How they benefit, what you can do for them. You want to make each email as personal and customized as possible, including how you are a subscriber of their email list (and make sure you are), and remember, you aren’t just looking to secure a marketing partnership, but a relationship with a key player in your market.
That relationship can go well beyond a one-time broadcast!
