One of the biggest assets you’ll ever build is your mailing list*.

In fact, many an online marketer finds that their business really takes off once they start building a list.
That’s because once you have a list, you can make money on demand – any time you want – simply by sending a targeted offer to the list.
So with that in mind, it makes sense to get as many targeted subscribers as possible onto your list.
How do you do that?
Check out these seven proven methods for getting more subscribers fast…
Your prospects are very careful about guarding their email addresses. They’re not going to give up their address for a run-of-the-mill lead magnet. That’s why you need to make sure that you’re offering lead magnets with these characteristics:
So how do you make sure you have an in-demand lead magnet?
Simple: you find out what other lead magnets in your niche people are getting excited about.
One way to do this is to go to a marketplace like Clickbank.com to find out what other people are buying.
If people are laying down good money for a particular kind of product in your niche, then you can bet they’ll happily exchange their best email address for it.
The second way to find out what’s popular is to check out what sorts of lead magnets and other content your competition is delivering. You can do this by:
For example, if you went around the online marketing circles, you’d quickly discover that big lists are really popular.
So what would you do? That’s right, you’d brainstorm an “ultimate list” of your own. For example:
Just set aside a few minutes for research and brainstorming, and you’re sure to come up with dozens of ideas.
One mistake that a lot of marketers make when building their list is that they send every visitor to the exact same lead page.
If you put a good offer up, you’ll get decent results. But if you the best results, then you need to put an ultra-targeted offer up. That means something that is directly related to the exact content the visitor was just viewing.
For example, if you have a blog post that offers three tips for faster weight loss, then your lead magnet might be a report for another 101 weight loss tips.
Another idea is to offer a content upgrade to your blog visitors.
If you have a long anchor post on your site, then offer to send this post as a .pdf to readers.
Alternatively, you can even offer the content in a different (deluxe) form, such as offering a video version of the content they just read.
For best results, insert in-content capture forms. In other words, don’t make people jump through multiple hoops to get to your opt-in form.
What we’re talking about here are popups and lightboxes that overlay your web page.
These sorts of capture systems usually demand a response before the visitor can continue doing what they were doing on your website.
Do visitors like them? I doubt you’ll find anyone who actually says they like running into popups. But the truth is, they work like crazy.
Now here’s something important…
Don’t have your capture system popup or slide in immediately after someone lands on your web page. Your visitor doesn’t even know what your site is about yet, so they’re not going to join your list if you drop an offer in front of them the moment they land on the page. Use delayed overlays and exit overlays for maximum conversions.
Which brings us to the next point…
Just because your visitors are leaving without taking any action doesn’t mean they will never take action.
Usually it just means that they didn’t see an offer that was highly targeted to their interests. So when they hit the “back” button to get out of your site, you have one last chance to put a lead magnet in front of them that will get them signing up to your list.

If you’re willing to work with the code on your site, you can create these redirects yourself. If you’d rather do it the easy way, then look for a redirect script or plugin that works on your platform.
Social media is a great place to interact with your audience, launch viral campaigns and even get some sales. But what you need to do is focus on funneling your network back to your lead pages.
You can easily use Soci Video Jukebox to help you curate content and automate the posting.
Another great way to take advantage of social media is by posting YouTube videos that include calls to action at the end of the videos. This call to action should direct viewers to your lead page.
Here are tips for maximizing your success with this strategy:
The influencers in your niche are the ones who have big platforms — such as mailing lists, popular blogs, and big social networks—that are full of people who hang on their every word and take them up on every recommendation.
I’m sure you are well aware of the influencers in your niche. If you are an influencer too, have you thought about how to ethically borrow their traffic? That’s right, if you partner with them, you can leverage their traffic to build your own mailing lists.
Here are six ways to do it:
That’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to leveraging an influencer’s traffic to build your list. Get creative, because these strategies are often the best and quickest ways to turn warm targeted traffic into subscribers and buyers.
Now let’s wrap things up…
You just discovered seven proven ways to get more subscribers fast. If you implement all seven strategies, you’re sure to see your list grow by leaps and bounds.
Now let me share with you a method for super-optimizing your results: test, track and tweak everything.
A lot of people tend to neglect this step. They figure if their lists are growing, then they’re not going to fix what isn’t broken. However, even small improvements to your lead pages and campaigns can produce big results.
For example, let’s imagine you have a lead page that’s pulling a 5% conversion rate. That means for every 100 people who land on your lead page, five of them sign up.
But imagine if you did some testing and were able to improve that to a 10% conversion rate… or 15%… or even 20% or more. Suddenly, any paid advertising you do gives you a much higher return on your investment. And your list and your revenues are going to grow a whole lot more quickly.
Point is, it’s well worth it to test your campaigns. Here are the best places to start your testing and tweaking for maximal response rates:
So now that you know these seven ways plus the bonus that makes them all more effective, it’s time to get started. Go ahead and put these to work for you today, because I think you’ll like your results!
