How to: Grow your email list fast and easy

Email Marketing is an indispensable part of digital marketing for any business that wishes to reach out to its customers on a personal level. In no other form of marketing can a business or a brand reach out to a customer as deep as email marketing. You get right to their inbox, which they access daily and care about. Other forms of digital marketing require people to be driven to the medium where the business is marketing its product or service.

The best part of email marketing is that there are people who are interested in the product/service or the niche the business is in. An email list containing the email addresses of people who have already subscribed means a business already has access to a target customer group, which is well past the phase where the customer attention is to be grabbed. The more diverse an email list gets and is filtered and compiled properly, the more targeted will the email campaigns be for a business that targets its customers on email.

There are multiple ways to collect customer email addresses these days. Many opt-in tools, forms, landing page builders, popup tools and others or even chatbots are put to use, to collect emails which are the most important components in email marketing. Once you have their email and as long as they are not spammed, emails are among the best ways to reach out to a target customer group that’s already interested in the product or service that’s offered. There are multiple email marketing tools that make email marketing easy, like Aweber, Moosend, Drip, Constant Contact, SendFox, SendinBlue, MailChimp etc. 

Collecting the email addresses is easy when using a landing page built with platforms like Instapage, Landingi or Unbounce, etc is easy since all it takes is adding a simple block to the page. Things are different if you are on WordPress. WPforms is a great WordPress plugin that lets users create simple contact forms to collect user data, on WordPress.
