4 week email marketing formula

"Isn’t that too many messages to send out to my subscribers?"

We see it all the time – businesses literally shaking in their boots if they consider sending out more than their standard once a month newsletter.

And we understand...

You always want to treat your email subscribers with the utmost respect.

But you have to remember that you're also running a business. One that needs to generate revenue in order to actually stay in business.

The first time I ever used a "real incentive" to bribe subscribers onto my list was a couple of years back.

I had stumbled upon some tickets to an upcoming workshop being offered by a popular bestselling author. It was going to be a busy week for me and I realized that I wasn't going to be able to go to the event.

"Why not run a give-away contest on the blog?" was the idea that popped into my head.

So I did.

And my list size exploded.

And since the event was in a niche I was already working in, these new subscribers were a perfect match for my business at the time.

So maybe it's time for you to run a giveaway on your site.

You may be thinking that it's gonna be a complete waste of time and money.
