No matter how you look at it, you can’t benefit from email marketing unless you have people to email (people in your Mailchimp Audience). Therefore, it is vital to have a system for collecting emails (with the email owners permission of course) if you are to succeed.

Regardless of whether you are new, growing or grown-getting people into your audience and keeping them there is the most important thing in email marketing.

We’ve highlighted how to grow your list into 3 key areas:

Target market – have a group of people to ask whether they want to go on your list (and not just anyone)
Method – A way to capture the people that want to go on your list
A reason to sign up – make it worth their while-an inbox is a privileged place to be invited into
