Due to Covid-19, the majority of all small businesses are now wondering, what’s next? What can you do to help your business during this recession due to Covid-19? In this blog, we are going to focus on starting and growing an email list. Although an email list will not give you immediate sales, once everything is back to normal, be ahead of the game. Instead of trying to post on social media stating that your business is open for business or that you’re having some great discount, be a step ahead of the game by creating and growing your email list for free. It’s easier now than ever to grow your email list. It’s time to amplify your marketing efforts, and increase.
I’ve used them all, Mailchimp, Drip, and Constant Contact. But by far, Flodesk is number one, and here is why. It keeps it simple, it’s affordable, and the email templates are to DIE for.

Watch my video below which will show you how to set up your Flodesk account.
One: offer an introductory promotional offer for people who are joining your newsletter. It doesn’t have to be a large discount, 10% or 15% is a great promotional rate. This can be done as a popup, a section right under your cover image on your homepage and on your footer as well
Two: You can offer a giveaway on your social media page that directs your participants to join your newsletter. In order for them to participate, they must join your newsletter. Take a look at our logo giveaway as an example.
Three: Thinking about starting a blog or maybe you already have one. Towards the bottom of each blog post, Have an option for your viewers to sign up to your newsletter so that they are able to stay updated.
When it comes to sending out emails, don’t be a car salesman. People get enough emails about 10% off her, 75% off here, it can get annoying. Instead, try to make it to where people are looking forward to reading your emails. Think about your audience, their problem and what type of emails you can write to help them.
