What's the best way to build up your email list?
There are so many great strategies out there – and the sheer variety can be overwhelming. Is one method really better than the rest? Or do they all “work” the same?
This question intrigued us enough to ask 12 successful entrepreneurs how they managed to get their first 1000 subscribers. The wide range of answers proved one thing:
It's not a one-size-fits-all operation.
For some, blogging has served as the foundation of all list-building efforts. Others have seen success with paid ads, Facebook groups, or even in-person networking.
Popups can be one of the most effective ways to build your email list – with some success stories claiming a 220% increase in conversions.
But to be fair, popups can only convert your visitors if they're well designed, well-written, and properly placed on your website.
If these criteria aren't met, your popup can just look spammy to your visitors, which will definitely be a huge roadblock.

The sad reality is that most people who stumble upon your website are unlikely to return, unless you are able to capture their name and email and provide them with a great user experience. leaving them desperate to come back for more.
