    How To Quickly Build Your Email List with Social Media ContestsPreview email list contests social media
    I used to think building an email list had to be done the “slow and steady” way, and that it had to take months or years to build up a massive list of potential customers and fans. But now I know better, and today I’m excited to be sharing with you one tip that I’ve been using to fill my email list with enthusiastic subscribers who want to help me spread the word and grow my list for me. The special sauce? It’s holding highly targeted contests and leveraging social media to get the word out. This is ideal for you as a freelancer, because it helps you spread your message about who you are and what you do. It generates positive buzz for your brand, too. Plus, you can then offer the people who signed up for your email list via a contest other options after the contest ends. This is perfect if you’ve been productizing your know-how into digital products that you can sell to many people without trading dollars for hours.
