How to build optin email list for marketing.

by Nicholas H. Online marketing expert
According to the "Email Statistics Report, 2021-2022" by the market research company The Radicati Group , there were over 4 billion email accounts with around 2.5 billion users worldwide in 2021: This means that significantly more people had an email address than a social media account . E-mail is still considered the most important and most serious electronic communication medium - despite the fact that around 80 percent of all messages sent are spam.


Therefore, newsletters in marketing, for example for customer or reader loyalty, are as up-to-date as ever since online marketing has existed. They can also be implemented cost-effectively using powerful tools. The challenge is getting the newsletter out to the masses—or in other words, getting your audience's email addresses. The sooner you start creating an email address list of interested users, the faster you can use the right tricks to drive your marketing campaign forward and achieve greater reach . How does address collection become a complete success and which mistakes should you absolutely avoid?
All beginnings are difficult - with patience for an individual email list


If you are dealing with the topic for the first time and are just starting to create an e-mail list, you usually quickly come across providers who offer you lists with several hundred thousand e-mail addresses that have already been put together. As tempting as these offers may seem, you should still avoid them. Because, on the one hand, you are treading on dangerously thin ice in legal terms and, on the other hand, this approach has been proven to have little prospect of success: users generally react very negatively to newsletters they have received for which they have not registered . In this way you lose potential customers or readers and in the worst case you are marked as a spammer.

Instead, make an effort to fill your mailing list yourself by promoting yourself, offering attractive promotions, and making signing up as easy as possible.
Easy registration


When implementing the newsletter subscription in your web project, you should make sure that your visitors also discover it. Hidden on a subpage of your website or in the form of a small button somewhere on your blog, the chances of success are slim, especially if you are just starting to build your email list. In order to present the registration in the best possible way, we recommend the use of newsletter tools , which often contain registration buttons for social networks in addition to pop-up solutions and customizable buttons for your website .
Link registration to special offers

Based on an extensive list of e-mail addresses, your newsletter will quickly develop into a powerful marketing tool from which you generally benefit far more than the readers do from the content of the newsletter. Therefore, you should consider sweetening your users' sign-up with an additional offer . For example, are conceivable

discounts on downloads or other products,
exclusive content such as e-book guides,
free webinars,
Sweepstakes Entry
or a premium membership.

You will not be able to prevent users from subscribing to your email list only to take advantage of these offers and then unsubscribing from your newsletter again. Ultimately, however, these users are most likely those who are not relevant to your email campaign - and, by the way, you were able to record at least a few more page views .
Apply for newsletters

Creating a mailing list is seldom a sure-fire success: tell the internet that you not only run an excellent blog, web shop or website, but that you also report in detail on news and interesting topics in your newsletter. Use the social networks and create special campaigns that present your newsletter and any additional campaigns and forward interested readers to the newsletter subscription. Don't hesitate to specifically ask your visitors to join your mailing list - for example at the end of your posts in your own or external blog.

The members of your email list you have already recruited can also help you promote your newsletter. For one, they will do this automatically if your newsletter is a worthwhile offer. On the other hand, you can also help by adding social media and e-mail buttons that readers can use to share your newsletter with friends and acquaintances. Finally, you also have the options of traditional marketing with advertisements and QR codes or within the framework of webinars, conferences and trade fairs.
