5 Things You Can Do To Build Your Email List.

1. Create a Lead Generation Offer

Develop a free ebook or whitepaper and host it on a landing page that asks visitors to provide their email address in order to download it. This is called a “gated offer.”


2. Promote an Online Contest

Use your social media accounts to host a free giveaway in exchange for contact information. Encourage entrants to click through to your website and sign up using their email address.
• Wishpond
• Thivehive
• Gleam.io


3. Create or Reference a Free Online Tool or Resource.

Free online tools make your users’ lives easier, and all they have to do is sign up with their email address. You can link to one but require an email address to send the subscriber the list.

Mortgage Broker, could offer a Rent vs mortgage calculator

A Consultant, who Provides College Scholarship Assistance to parents of High School Juniors and Seniors could offer a College loan calculator

Travel Agent, could offer a Travel budget calculator – Travel agent

Head-Hunter or Recruiter, could offer a Cost of living by state calculator


4. Promote an Offer Through Facebook that Requires an Email Address.

Promote content on your Facebook Timeline that your followers can sign up to access. Be sure to add social sharing buttons to the landing pages and thank-you pages you send them to so you encourage your leads to share those offers with their own networks.


5. Create ‘Bonus’ Content.

Not all gated content is worth it to a website visitor. In order to gain their interest, you need to give them free content first. Start with a blog post that offers beginner advice on a subject, then offer “bonus” content with more advanced tips that they can access by submitting their email address via a landing page.

Smashing Your Business Goals through One D.R.E.A.M [Podcast Ep. 04]

Marketing is Mandatory Podcast Ep.04

Smash Your Business Goals with the D.R.E.A.M. Formula.

In this episode of the Marketing is Mandatory podcast I discuss how I hit my business goals in 2018 using the D.R.E.A.M. formula.

Winding down for this last year, I can remember around this time last year, when I was able to set most of my goals for my business for 2018. Surprisingly I was able to reach most of them. I did it through using a formula I created.

I know there are a lot of tips and techniques out there that people use, so I’m going to share the one with you that works for me. I call it “The Dream Formula.” It is something that I created after going through a series of mishaps in failed attempts.  Once I started implementing some very specific steps and started taking on a particular mindset it became easier for me to hit each one of my goals. So in this episode, I’m going to share with you what I called the ‘Dream Formula: How to achieve your business goals in one year!


Give Me the D.R.E.A.M. formula


The Dream Formula:
How to achieve your business goals in one year.

Each letter stands for something. Each letter stands for a particular action on mindset. It’s not each one of them individually that get you over the hump. It’s the combination of all the steps that get you to success that you’re looking for.   If you really want to reach her goals, I suggest that you use this formula. It’s a mixture of things you may have heard before, and some you might not have her before. But ultimately by combining all of these particular actions you absolutely should reach your business goals.

Achieving the goals is just one benefit to using this formula.  It’s all the other benefits that come along with using a formula that make it amazing.  Using this formula I achieved a new clarity and understanding about my product offerings. It became very obvious what my exact niche was and the benefits that I offered to my particular customers. With that clear information,  I was able to expand on those benefits and get specific on the things that my business offers while at the same time it allowed me to adjust my price point and become more valuable to the customers that I serve.

The Dream Formula also puts measures in place that are going to ‘protect yourself from yourself.’  Meaning, that we all have shortcomings of any kind, or self-sabotaging mindsets and actions that we try to avoid, this formula will protect you from self-sabotage by delivering achievement and success.
