Another favorite tip that I enjoy writing about.

A tip that has worked and will continue to work for Internet Dreams.

How To Make An Email List! – Tip #3

Create a “Landing” page!


Landing pages have always worked for many to gather emails for their email list.

If you visit many blogs around especially the larger ones, they will have a beautiful landing page that describes their services.

But mostly, they are giving you a legit reason for you to sign up with your email, reason being to receive updates right in your inbox.

I recommend using Premise by Copyblogger Media to create amazing landing pages!

Internet Dreams now has a landing page and if you go here, you can see it right away.

How To Make An Email List! – Tip #4

Create a “Thank You for Commenting” page!


A smart strategy to create is every time a visitor does an action on your site, direct them to a page that encourages them to sign up to your emailing list.

One way would be to create another page that will be directed to those that comment on your blog.

Every time your reader or visitor comments, they will be redirected to this page that will have a sign-up form from OptinSkin.

Here is our “Thank You” page:

If you comment on this article or any other one, this page will be placed in front of you.

This makes them feel welcomed on your blog and saying thank you on that page will increase the chance of capturing their email.

This strategy will make your email list grow some more.


How To Make An Email List! – Tip #5

Give them an incentive to sign up!

incentive to sign up

People are accustomed to receive something in return when they give some of their own property.

Their email is property to them.

Just like they use money to buy something, they expect something in return such as the item they bought.

Give them something as reason to sign up.

It is in our genes to receive something and will end up giving up something for it.

Use this as your edge.

If you have written an e-book, give them that in return for their email.



I wanted to show you guys some examples that can spark your creativity on what to give in return..

How To Make An Email List! – Tip #6

Buy Solo Ads!


Solo ads are ads that you create and pay an owner of another email list to send your ad to his email subscribers.

The ad you create is basically an email that will be sent to the other owner’s email list.

If you create a landing page with an offer on it such as an e-book, the clicks you receive to this landing page will have a great conversion.

Conversion is great when you offer an incentive for them to sign-up.

The payment is based on the amount of clicks you receive from the subscribers.


How To Make An Email List! – Tip #7

Create sick, awesome Articles and Content!


Your blog should look professional and contain content that your readers and visitors will be attracted to.

Regular content today won’t cut it.

Regular content won’t take you far and will not help you stand out!


Creating articles with your heart will help you gain your new subscriber’s heart.


That is the point of the creation of your articles; you will surely make your subscriber’s heart happy when you help them with their problem.

Plus, your content should have strategy as well to it.

Strategy to target long tail key words and other bloggers’ attention.

Many new visitors are going to decide to give you their email based on the articles you write and the content you produce on your blog.

So make sure to produce insane, awesome articles and content!
