When you’re promoting your business, your email list is a key way to communicate with your followers and potential customers. It’s not always easy to find the time to manage your email lists, so using your mobile phone to grow your list is a great way to make the most of your time, allowing you to work on the move and promote your business with ease.
Most of the people who you are trying to reach will be using a smartphone on a daily basis, and you can make the most of this to connect with them. Learning a few simple mobile tactics can really help to grow your business in an easy and convenient way, and will help you to stay ahead of the competition in the busy, technology-driven business world.
Four Easy Ways to Grow Your Email List With a Smartphone
- Collect new contacts from your phone. Paper sign up sheets can be off-putting to customers, difficult to decipher and awkward to transfer. Save yourself a great deal of effort and time with an app such as the Constant Contact mobile app, which will collect email address from your smartphone or tablet, adding them to your mailing list immediately.
- Collect email addresses via text. The easier it is for new subscribers to add themselves to your list, the more likely they are to do so. A tool like Constant Contact’s Text-to-Join, that is designed to allow followers to subscribe by sending a short text message, can be a great way to encourage new subscriptions.
- Add a QR code. A QR code is one of the quickest ways to boost your email list, making it much easier for people to join your list by scanning the code via their mobile device. Adding a QR code to your promotional material is an easy way to join the world of business with your smartphone.
- Use a tablet. Setting up a tablet in a store or at publicity events can make it easier for people to join your mailing list – and saves you having to decipher poor handwriting!
Ask before you add
Don’t forget that it’s vital to ask permission before adding a new contact to your list. This is a really important way to avoid complaints about spam and to ensure that you are creating a list of engaged and interested followers.
