5 Ways To Get Your Email List Begging For More


Recently, a friend of mine did an experiment by subscribing to 10 different opt-in email marketing lists to analyze which ones are effective. Many websites and online businesses have resorted to sending promotional materials to those who have subscribed to them in an effort to boost their sales or traffic.

Opt-in email marketing sends newsletters, catalogs updates and many more promotional materials to website visitors who have agreed to be updated whether monthly, weekly or semi-annually.

Through email, the subscriber will receive updates through email. If a promotional material piques their interest, they will visit the site to learn more or to purchase outright.

For the website owners, this is a chance to remind their list of their existence and parlor their wares. With the numerous sites in the internet that offers the same products or services in one way or the other, the competition can get pretty tight and it is easy to be forgotten.


The Experiment

Back to my experimenting friend, he tried to discover which opt-in marketing strategies will entice a subscriber into begging for more. Some would send in very simple fashion, some would very outlandish while there are some that would just lie in between.

The differences could easily be noticed and some have gotten the idea of an effective opt-in marketing strategy. He dubbed them effective because he felt like he just couldn’t wait to go their site and learn more.

The more persuasive ones even got him halfway to reaching for his wallet and to his credit card before he realized this was only for an experiment.

Many companies and site present their promotional materials in a wide variety of concepts. Each has their own distinctive style and designs, but more than the outline and the presentation.The content and the articles are what keeps the attention of your potential customer locked on to your opt-in marketing medium.

Creativity is the key here.
