6 tips to increase your mailing list

Many websites have a mailing list these days and there is no better way to market your content and products. The only problem is growing your mailing list. This can take a long time and a lot of work to achieve. This is why i have decided to share some of my favourite ways of growing your mailing list.

A signup box 

A signup box in the sidebar of your website will allow users to conveniently and easily enter their email address and sign up to your mailing list. If you are using WordPress there are many plugins available to help you do this. I like the MailMojo widget as it is nice and simple and allows users to easily sign up.


Another nice way to increase your mailing list is to run a competition where users have to enter their email to enter a competition. This gives people an incentive to want to join your mailing list and this can help huge amounts in gaining quick results.

User comments

When users comment, make it mandatory that they need to enter their email address. This way you get a useful comment and a new subscriber in one. If you get a lot of blog comments then you could easily grow your mailing list pretty quickly.


A light box is a pop out box that the user can see when they first visit your website. This can be one of the more effective ways of growing your mailing list however some people will not like this as it is annoying for the reader as they cannot see the content that they are looking for.

Promotion via Facebook and Twitter

Promoting your mailing list on your Facebook and Twitter account means that you are promoting it to people who are already following you so are proberly interested in your niche and your bound to get some of these join your mailing list.

add an option at the end of blog posts

by allowing visitors to your website to join your mailing list after reading a blog post can give you some good results. This is because once you have the reader engaged with a great post then they are going to want to join your mailing list to get future updates.
