How to Double Your Fan Mailing List

  1. Help them to Opt-In. Put a “Subscribe to my newsletter” sign-up form on every page of your website.

  2. Show them all you’ve got. Add sign up instructions at the bottom of your list for the other lists you own.

  3. Shout it out loud. Submit your newsletter to directories, lists, search engines.

  4. Criss Cross. Swap ads and messages with other newsletters with a similar music market.

  5. Sell them in your Signature. Add a subscribe@bardscrier.com followed by a brief statement about your newsletter to your signature file.

  6. Share the love. Encourage your readers to share your newsletter with their friends.

  7. Give it away. Offer a freebie for signing up. Free MP3s are always enjoyed.

  8. Use the Buddy System. Team up with other bands with similar styles of music and share your list.

  9. Take it to the streets. Invite people you meet to sign up. Have ‘em sign up at gigs.

  10. Make it a lifestyle. Get your fans involved. Have them ask their friends or, if they run a business, customers would like to subscribe.
