Grow Your Email List (FS045)

Conversion. List building. Signup forms. Giveaways. Lead magnets. Conversion. Etc. The best thing about this episode is how much Corbett talks.

If you want to grow your email list, get your notepad out, pour yourself a coffee/tea and press play. This is a good one covering:

  • Which email providers to use (wait, that’s in the first one.)
  • Where to put signup forms.
  • What to offer subscribers.
  • How to figure out which offers are best.
  • Utilizing landing pages.
  • BONUS: the announcement of Caleb’s new podcast, Words With Wojcik. (This is a joke. It’s funny. You’re laughing, see?)
