Sending out sneak peeks of new products or exclusive offers will draw your community in and create trust. Brand loyalty is built over time, through consistency and transparency. Don't abuse your list by delivering content that they don't want to see or adds no value to them.

Give something away for free

Everyone likes free gifts, so creating a free ebook, guide or video for new subscribers acts as a "hook" to reel in new followers.  Promote your giveaway on your blog or website near your "Subscribe" form and redirect new subscribers to a "Welcome" page whereby they can download and share your site with friends.
