Oh, I how love blogging. There is always something new to learn and share with you!
I’ve been working a lot on refining my blogging strategy and with that comes updates to my email marketing strategy and subscriber list.
I talked a little here about why email subscribers are so important. Unlike your social media followers, you own your email list 100%.
But to get subscribers signing up for your list, it helps to create an easy and pretty landing page. Scroll down to read the step by step list!
Landing Page Ideas
Landing pages are simple standalone web pages that are easy to share with your followers. They also make it easy to include in your email campaigns and your website.
As a blogger, you may consider having a landing page for these reasons:
- Email Course Sign Up
- Subscriber List Sign Up
- Freebie or Downloadable for Subscribers
- Highlight Products From Your Online Store
You can create a landing page for just about anything.
If you are looking to increase your email subscribers, a landing page is one of the best ways to go to increase sign up conversions.

Sharing your landing page URL on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest are great ways to start sharing. Include your landing page within each blog post and use a call to action to direct readers to click to sign up.
