Opt In Email Marketing: How To Grow Your Opt In List Using Online Forums

Posted on February 20, 2007. Filed under: Opt in email marketing |

This next tip is free and easy.

Simply find forums that are comprised of your target market. Hang around for a bit, see what’s being talked about, and when a question comes up that allows you to share your expertise, pop in and give the group your wisdom.

Most lists will permit you to attach a short email signature to your posts, and this is where you point people to where they can sign up for your list via your freebie offering that entices people into your marketing and product funnel.

And, if it’s appropriate, you can also refer to a more comprehensive answer that you have packaged as a product by saying something like, “by the way I’ve got a free report on this which answers your question more in-depth. If you’d like a copy, send me an email offlist.”

If the person who posted the question found your answer of value, they will likely ask for a copy of your free report – and that’s how they join your list. And not only will that person likely follow-up with you, but many others who are reading the posts will too. I’ve attracted more than 70 people to my list from just one posting like this.

If you make this strategy a consistent part of your overall marketing plan, it will help you increase your list numbers, position you as an expert, and spread the word about who you are and what it is that you offer.

That’s all for now.
