Traffic is undoubtedly the very lifeblood of your website and Email Marketing can help you maximize your traffic by ensuring that your subscribers visit your website and keep coming back for more.

Right now people may have no idea when you update your site or make a major new change you really want your visitors to see. With email marketing you can quickly and easily inform your subscribers that you have some awesome new content they will not want to miss.

Your customers will love the fact that they are being "kept in the loop" if you use email to inform them of what is coming soon, of a promotion you know they won't want to miss or create exclusive deals and discounts just for signing up to read your emails.

Why not share your knowledge with your subscribers? After all they are interested in what you have to say because they keep coming back to your website. Schedule a series of emails giving insider tips or tricks, general advice, your thoughts or even your rants at things that annoy you. You can build a really loyal following this way.

I am liking SumoMe as others here are also using it as well. There are others but I'm happy with what I am using.And yes SumoMe is a plugin that is free and it does other cool things as well.

That is one thing I was thinking about to do eventually on my site Ed... I saw that you have an optin box on your website to this effect... Did you had a series of newsletters ready before you put it there?

No SumoMe provides the optin form for me. All you need is AWeber or some sort of email service. Thanks for asking!

Hi Ed. Thanks for this tutorial and especially when you listed name of plugins for eMail subscriptions. I find it very helpful when you described the features for each plugin. I just have to decided which one is better (for me).

I enjoyed your tutorial. I wonder if it is too advanced for me at the moment. My web site is all content, does not even have images or any affiliate link. Wonder what is the next step for me.
Reply
mijareze Premium
Your next step should be pictures and affiliate links, I would think. Without the links, your website is not a business yet. Unless, you want to raise your traffic first before having visitors making purchases. It's really your call. One of the email plugins "Subscribe2," builds a visitor list for you and emails all the people on your list every time you update (add a new post). This is a free plugin that does the work for you and it's free. This is the plugin I am going to start out with. Thank you!

I am thinking about using a very simple one: #3 on my list: Subscribe2, to start with. People often ask me when are you going to update? They regularly ask me about subscribing to my feed or do you have an RSS feed? The main thing I want them to know is when I publish a new post. It's free too, I believe.

Great information Edward, presented in a clear and concise fashion.....do you advocate double opt ins to get your subscriber's permission or are you happy to rely on the initial opt in only?
Thanks
Mark

I like the double opt-ins! I also like the series of 4 emails sent quarterly to niche websites! Seems easier to plan and organize! Thank you for responding!

Really? I was working on it, not expecting it to kind of shut me down at 4 pages, but I was prompted to publish it. So I did. Is 4 pages the minimum? Cause someone else blogged asking about the requirements.
Thank you Loes!
Reply
Loes Premium
Yes 4 pages is the minimun, beside that, when you click on save, it will not be displayed and you can access the training for adjustments. When published you can go on top and click on the cog, edit, and after that you publish again
