7 Easy Tips To Grow Your Email List

I came across this amazing video from my friend Gideon Shalwick on 7 easy tips to grow your email list. In the video Gideon shares seven methods he used to help build a huge mailing list. As we all know, the money is in the list. Fully 2/3 of my blog income comes from my list. Anyone who is not building a list is leaving a ton of money on the table.

List building is so much easier today than it was when I started. Services like Aweber has pretty much automated the entire process. And best of all, it’s way cheaper today than ever. You can start you list with Aweber today for only $1 for the first month and Aweber will even guarantee the dollar. If you can’t make your dollar back after a month, send Aweber an email and they’ll give you a full refund. I never had that when I was starting out!

Aweber provides the infrastructure to host your list but it’s still up to your to grow it. These seven list building tips from Gideon will help you do just that. Make sure you watch the video all the way to the end because Gideon reveals a really big secret there. Can you guess what it is?

  1. lol I could have NOT seen that coming!

    John, you seem to be everywhere. John, you got yourself some very good publicity for your ‘ultimate blog model profit’!

    Anyways, these 7 tips seem good. Though I see mixed advice on the ‘hovering’ opt-in box.

    1. Addy Kho says:

      agree…john is everywhere

    2. Salesfist says:

      I use the hivering method with some success.

    Keep these tips coming! First commenting, now list building, what’s next?

    1. Making Money Online ? 😉 SY

      1. d3so says:

        Everything discussed ties into making money online 😉

        1. hey, look whose blog this is…of course its about MMO

          1. I was joking, guys, let me take a second guess, the next big thing will be, give me a moment, yes, it will be Making Money With Social Media, lol, SY

          2. Lee Ka Hoong says:

            I believe that Making Money With Social Media is John’s expert since he did very well in this field. You could see John in everywhere in any internet marketing related function and any charity function. Can’t wait to see that! 😉

          3. He and Jeremy given away many iPhone and many flippo to get thousands followers … lollzz

  3. I’m waiting to grow a couple of my lists a bit more and then going to see how much money they make. If it goes really well, I’ll give you a cookie John! 🙂

    1. Lee Ka Hoong says:

      Are you building several mailing list in several niche or the same niche? I thought one mailing list would be good enough for the same niche? I’ve yet to build my own list so I want to learn more about it.

    2. You should never be waiting to grow your list.

  4. I saw that one coming, anyone who read John’s latest eBook, “The Ultimate Blog Profit Model” you should have known it too, those recommendations came straight out of his report. However, it is still nice to see this broken down and pulled out of the report so you don’t get distracted by the other information in your eBook.

  5. Hey John, I know you get subscribers in the hundreds on a daily basis, but I’m wondering what target I should be targeting. I’ve added an optin, a lightbox hover, a squeeze page, and am adding about 10 new subscribers a day.
    Should I be more aggressive or is this level acceptable?

    Thanks John.

    ps. Going to check out the action comments plugin.

  6. Very interesting! I liked the surprise at the end too. Free advertising is always nice to get.
    I’ll have to think about using those tips in the future.

  7. Addy Kho says:

    Too many tips to digest… lol

  8. lame john! – YOU should be talking to your audience about YOUR book/course – not (no disrepect intended) Gideon

    especially when he simply repeats what’s in your ebook!

    different story, if gideon was talking about some of HIS techniques, which were/are complimentary to yours.

    bottomline – nobody explains john chow better than john chow!

    1. d3so says:

      Lol that’s true. Maybe it was intended to be a review by Gideon?

  9. Soares says:

    Im losing it…im losing it LOL so much information to absorve!
    I have the power to do it!!!

    Thanks John

  10. This make me want to start my email list even more now. I am happy to know that they are going to giv back the dollar if you don’t earn from the. I know that this is nothign for you but for those whoare jsut starting out, every penny is needed.

    1. d3so says:

      Not really, a dollar is easily affordable otherwise, how can you afford to be on the internet if you couldn’t even spare a dollar?

  11. BoKeam says:

    yeah,it is important to get email list

  12. Hmmm…i’m about at 100 unique visitors a day now, I may have to look into getting an email grabber like aweber soon. Email captures are soo important…

    1. Peter Jay says:

      The early you start, the better. Currently I’m making about $100 per month using my list. Try it.. 🙂

      1. what holds me back is that I don’t want to start monetizing my site until I reach 500 Uniques a day…that means the aweber expense will not be recouped right away…

        Also, I have a Vbulletin forum set up…that might b a way to capture emails as well…need to look into it.

  13. mondex1 says:

    Keep up your good work. Your tips are very practical and really good. I use aweber to help me grow my email listing. Thanks again 🙂

  14. Hey John


    You’re so cheeky!

    Thanks for adding my video to your site – I’m glad you liked it!

    All the best for your event – keeping an eye on it 😉

  15. frog says:

    I just starting with my blog and as you say email list is important, i try built it up with aweber

  16. I think the video was really good. I’ve only started blogging more seriously in the last two months but I hear the same advice again and again. It’s all in the e-mail list.

    I think this article is great for people who have started blogging and have been using plugins to promote their stuff. But I have to admit, the video made me sign up for the newsletter and get curious in what else is there.

  17. John.

    You’re really doing a great job man. The video is really great. Thanks for sharing.


  18. These are some great tips especially if you are a newbie

  19. d3so says:

    Second time around watching this, this is a good example of regurgitated content.

  20. Cllass says:

    You’ve been preaching about the importance of a list for years and luckily I took your advice on it and have profited nicely from it. Everyone – sign up for aweber like John said and build out your autoresponder. Can’t emphasize this enough 🙂

  21. Great infos, i’m a newbie to this. Thanks a lot!

  22. Rob Begic says:

    Thanks for sharing, will have to try some of these tactics.

  23. Inside every cynical person, there is a disappointed idealist

  24. Those are good tips. I use some of them and mix it with few more strategies as well. Really, list building should be our number 1 priority whatever we do online. If you are driving tons of traffic but not building your list, you are leaving a lot of money on the table. Start building your list now, and you will soon see the results.

    Interesting I agree with most of them. But I’ll still wait a month till I use Aweber. Silly but I can’t wait for that to happen… I’m really wondering if you can earn a lot from it.
