If you have your own site, you can grow your base there, this is the most effective way but not the easiest.
Or you simply can buy it, look for a reliable data provider, it's fast, easy but not cheap
What niche are you dealing with?

Hello @bartino11
I apologize if this question turns out to be repetitive.
Don't apologize for asking any repetitive questions... If this comes up again in your mind it just means it was not answered in a way for you to understand... (or you did not find the previous one(s)... If that's the case it was either never asked or your search was too restrictive)

What are the most reliable and effective ways to grow the user base for email marketing? Could it be some freebies?
Always think like your target audience...
Where are they to be found, what do they need, what do they like, what do they want...
Think further, why would they join your email list?
You need to offer them VALUE...
A freebie not delivering on the promise will make me opt out of the email list...
A proposal somewhere where I just found valuable information to stay updated will make me opt-in, even without a freebie...
Why do you want to watch the next episode of a series? Why do you subscribe to a youtube channel?
Because the given information has answered to need/like/want...
Do the same with your emails, provide value, trigger curiosity, create expectations (and deliver)...

Or you simply can buy it, look for a reliable data provider, it's fast, easy but not cheap
Email marketers here, correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe these days, buying email addresses will get you in the spam box...
Those recipients never requested/agreed to be in contact with you, they don't even know who you are...

CORRECT! :affiliatefix:

Build your own lists. It isn't hard, it does take time, and the rewards are excellent when done correctly! I start new lists each year, and often in niches I already have other aged lists in. I have a couple of highly responsive lists that are well aged past ten years and one that is aged well past 15 years. All very responsive! I learned years ago, having more than one list in specific niches is lucrative because you can market from a different perspective to particular demographics more effectively this way. Gives a greater and wider spread in a given market.

Well one thing I can recommend against is buying emails and lists from places like raid forum. That will definitely put you in the spam folder and most of the email members will be inactive. Buying emails a decade ago and cold calling them may of got you some ROI but in this day and age it's not viable. Complete waste of time and money IMO, if you want to pay to build an email list, use solo ads and offer something irresistible relevant to your vertical. I have some experience in terms of solo ads but i'm no pro.

Hi there! The two things that you need to remember is accessibility and incentives. Making your presence known to others without being too intrusive is the sweet spot for email marketing. Incentivizing is also a great way to encourage people to sign up. Promo codes, discounts, and more will certainly help you in building your client base.

There are a lot of advices on email list building, so let's consider some of them together.

Add
the subscription form to your website or social networks pages:
  • offer your customers some gift for subscription
  • fill website with such a content that makes visitors subscribe without hesitation
  • intrigue client not to skip some share or important information
  • motivate with free and helpful content
  • make experiments with position of the subscription form on webpage
Have a client questionnaire in your online store? Just use it to collect email contacts:
  • make sure that questionnaire is as clear and understandable as possible
  • offer something as a gift for clients that provide their personal data
  • make some lottery, survey or trivia contest using subscribers email contacts data; inform them about results
How to build an email list? Just group together the contact data from every available source:
  • CRM systems (1С, Oracle, Bitrix, Terasoft etc.)
  • business cards and booklets
  • previous mailings
Be creative:
  • if you have shot some videos - add your website address to the end of video; mention there that much more information is available for subscribers
  • don’t hesitate to talk about your emailing campaigns. Among your acquaintances there may be those who will get interested
  • add "send to friend" option to your email
Check this article to learn more on how to growth email list via social media and video: https://esputnik.com/en/blog/methods-explosive-growth-your-email-contact-list

There is something we would like to warn you: never buy the email contacts databases. There are three main reasons NOT to do this:
  • Illegality
  • It may cause collapse of your relations with clients
  • Communication may not bring desirable results
Most likely your messages will be marked as spam by subscribers, and they will be absolutely right. You are not pleased when receive useless emails, isn’t? Others are probably feel the same.

I apologize if this question turns out to be repetitive. What are the most reliable and effective ways to grow the user base for email marketing? Could it be some freebies?
If you have a blog, you can find an optin email program, some of them have very great free plans for a start. A good example is poptin . I personally used it on my blog.

So they will let you create a banner of specific size of your choice, that will display dynamic contents which you want to display when a reader is visiting and leaving your website. In each of these contents you display, you can ask of email of the reader. The contents could be an incentive which would entice the user to let you have the email as a source of delivery.

It could be a free ebook on the category the visitor was reading on your blog. It could be an exclusive secret, etc, whatever you think your reader would really want to know, and you would want to give them for free but it's not available on your blog, then you can use that as an opportunity for optin contacts.

Most importantly when you get this list, treat it like a precious gold, and you might have it be one.

Remember they say the money is in the list, but I say the money is in the value you offer to the list.

  • To grow the user base, you need to identify your audience segment.
  • Put opt-in form to get the specific audience, but make sure the information you provide is compelling and exciting for them because once they lose interest, they will unsubscribe.
  • Make a small video of your email marketing campaign.
  • Do social media posts, offer giveaway gifts, attract the people, and create value.
  • I will suggest, don't buy an email list with anyone because there are chances that it will increse your spam score.
I hope you will get the proper answer this time and this question will raise again and again in your mind.

The best way is to slowly build your own base. Create a form on your website where people will receive some value in return for writing their email address. It could be a free ebook, a short tutorial, webinar. Something that may interest your potential customers and actually help them or provide them with new knowledge.
