I love challenges… Especially the kind that kick me into action and help to get big results in very little time.
If you’re like me and you would like to boost your email list quickly, I’ve got just the little challenge for you.
In this post, you’ll discover 5 things that you can do to get more subscribers. Each one can be done in less than 2 hours.
So, this weekend, instead of spending your time looking at holiday pictures posted by some "friend" on Facebook (which will NOT help your business grow), I challenge you to pick one item from this post and to implement it…
Ready to grow that list? Here we go!
When you're building your website, you'll soon come across the dilemma to figure out what the best tool is to use for email marketing.
If you're just starting out in your online business, the free MailChimp plan is a fantastic tool to start building your mailing list.
As long as you stay below 2,000 subscribers and 12,000 emails per month, you can use it for free, forever. This is enough to get serious about email marketing before you upgrade to a better plan.
However, as most free tools, the free MailChimp plan has its limitations. It's almost impossible to build a well-designed, conversion focused opt-in form that will get you the right people on your list.
This is what we're helping with in the newest Thrive University lesson.
Read on if you want to get the most out of MailChimp while saving time!
Amanda is working in a bank, during the daytime she's sitting in front of her computer and has to deal with clients' problems. She has to keep her cool and when she finally gets home after a hard day's work, she loves to funnel all the energy built up during the day into an active, sweaty workout.
Sarah is a mother of 4 toddlers. She spends most of her days running around trying to keep them from mischief and keeping the house in order. This leaves her exhausted most of the evenings. The only thing she wants is to take some time for herself, reconnect with her body and relax.
At first glance, Amanda and Sarah have nothing in common... Nevertheless they are both looking for a yoga course that fits their needs and they both landed on Heather's website.
If Heather met these two women in person, she would never offer the same yoga course or present the benefits of yoga in the same way to the both of them.
Why then would she send the same sales email to one and the other? That doesn't make much sense, does it?
The solutions to this problem is buyer persona based email segmentation.
That's quite a mouthful and sounds like something only large corporations can afford to do. But as you'll see in today's video, it's actually easy for you to segment your email list into relevant groups as well.
Content marketing is a great way to build an online audience, generate traffic and strengthen your brand. But keeping a regular posting schedule can be challenging. You have to come up with ideas for new blog posts all the time - and then you actually have to write those posts, as well. It's no small feat.
What if you could get the benefits of content marketing without all that hard work?
What if, instead of coming up with new content ideas all the time, you could just recycle your old content and use it to gain more traffic and backlinks?

Nodding your head up and down? Keep on reading!
We all know how awful it feels to be ignored.
You may spend hours of your life researching, crafting, and sending newsletters. Hours you’ll never get back. Just to realize it was for nothing.
Your hard-earned subscribers keep refusing to read your emails.
Be honest - you want to hit it big and make headlines everywhere.
You want to go from zero to massive income, achieve ludicrous subcriber counts in no time, be part of wildly profitable product launches... It's the classic hero-story and you want to be part of it.
Yet, your every attempt always seems to leave you stuck in the little league.
You're constantly dabbling in the same fields as these big hitters, but the hero high note of massive success always seems to be just out of reach.
Why is that? Are some people simply destined for greatness?
Recently I heard Penn Gillette, the bombastic larger half of the Penn&Teller illusionist-duo, guest speaking on the Art of Charm podcast. He made me realize why some people will never achieve greatness, and some will achieve it every time they try.
And because it's Penn Gillette, the answer comes in the form of an illusion.
Hold on tight.
You're all set to start building your mailing list, knowing that it's one of the most important assets for your business.
There's just one little issue...
...what the heck should you create as an opt-in bribe?
If you're serious about building your list "subscribe to my newsletter" isn't going to cut it, but neither is some generic, boring free report.
So what exactly does an excellent opt-in offer look like? Read on to find out...
A recent announcement by Google revealed that the use of overlays (including opt-in forms) will no longer be deemed "mobile friendly". This, in turn, can affect your website's search rankings.
Following the announcement, some panic and a lot of misinformation spread through the marketing circles and we received many questions about what this change meant for our list building plugin, Thrive Leads.
In this post, you'll discover what Google's announcement is really about and you'll see the update we've already released for Thrive Leads, to help you stay compliant.
