3 Ways to Build Your List with the Broadcast Archive
In an earlier post, we covered the cool new features of the recently redesigned broadcast archive.
The new archive saves a web version of each broadcast in a central location, making it simple for you to share message content with subscribers new and old.
With it, you are able to resurrect your dusty emails for new purposes and strengthen your existing relationships with your subscribers.
But did you know that the broadcast archive can also help you build your list? Here’s how.
Link to an Online Version
Placing a link on your web form to an example of your newsletter shows that your intentions as an email marketer are crystal clear.
Given the chance to preview a real message, subscribers know exactly what they are getting into when providing their email address. There are no questions as to whether or not your campaign will apply to them, since they can sample your content beforehand.
This can also lead to a higher retention rate, because subscribers are better informed prior to signing up to your list.
Make the Most of Forwarding To A Friend
When a subscriber forwards your email, your audience expands for a moment – a blip in eternity. And then it shrinks back, unless the recipient takes initiative and hunts down your sign-up form.
Now, the web version of your newsletter automatically displays a sign-up form. If your subscribers forward your emails to their friends, they will be able to sign up effortlessly.
Even better, you’ve just suggested subscribing to those who might never have thought of it at all.
Leverage Social Media
You’ve had the ability to link to your archive in your Facebook status or tweet your newest newsletter to create some buzz and generate traffic for some time. You can even publish each broadcast to Twitter with one click.
Now, as with forwarding, that web form on the archive page means interested readers don’t have to hunt to sign up for more of you – the option is automatically available when they are directed to your archive from your Facebook or Twitter status.
How Do You Use Your Archive?
Using the new and improved archive, the full value of your campaign is available to all of your readers: past, present and future. It’s also a great way to get new subscribers when using these methods.
