How To Get A Daily List Status Update From Mailchimp
If you want to turn this setting on or off you can view my mini YouTube video. But how do you get more of these emails? Popping in your inbox every day, telling you that you have new subscribers?
New Subscribers Every Day
How does that happen? How does he get a daily influx of subscribers? My client is based in Wrexham, between Chester and Oswestry but people sign-up from around the world.
I can tell you one thing, his website doesn’t just sit online with hundreds of people searching it out every day. No.
It Starts With a Fantastic Offer
My client has a fantastic offer, despite that it could still be the world’s best-kept secret if nobody knew about it. So he hires me.
His list grows because every day I post to social media on his behalf. I post to Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook. I tell people what is available and also leave a link for them to subscribe. Therefore, every day, people do sign-up to his list.
Two Things To Increase Your Mailing List
In conclusion, what two things does it take to get people to get those magic words: Daily List Status Update from Mailchimp?

With the advent of GDPR there will be no more buying email addresses and blanket marketing to them. So that begs the question; how will you increase subscribers to your mailing list? You know you need more subscribers because subscribers mean people looking at your work and people looking at your work means more sales. So what can you do?
It’s a bit like the chicken and the egg scenario. Why send out a newsletter if you have precious few subscribers? Alternatively, why ask people to subscribe to something that doesn’t exist yet?
It’s a conundrum many of us face so I’ve put together here 7 ways you can increase subscribers to your list. Some of these are one-off jobs, others will take a little more work but working together they should help you build up that list of current and potential clients.
- Have a link on each page on your website.
- Have a pop-up on your website asking people to subscribe. These are annoying but they do work.
- At the top of your Facebook page, there is a button. Change this to “sign-up” with the link to your mailing list.
- Have your offer and link to your mailing list on your Twitter profile.
- In the signature area in the bottom of your emails add a link asking people to subscribe.
- Send out social media posts highlighting your offer with the link to sign-up or directing to a sign-up page.
- Ask people. If someone gives you a business card you can send them an email to ask them to subscribe. If you run a stall or exhibition stand have a printed form for visitors to fill in asking them to subscribe. Keep copies of this form, photograph it as it will be your proof of consent if asked. You can also do this digitally.
Hopefully, that has got you thinking. You will probably come up with more ideas to increase your subscribers, if that is the case, please share them in the comments section below.
All of these things take time. If your time is better spent elsewhere, you can always ask your VA (winks conspiratorially) to do these things for you.
