Looking for ways to optimize and accelerate your email list growth? Look no further!

In this episode, I discuss a recent study from the team at Privy.com, which evaluates the most effective ways to quickly grow your list. Ben Jabbawy, Privy’s founder, joins me to reveal what is and isn’t working for email marketers trying to build high-converting email capture campaigns.

Privy is a list growth platform that empowers over 20,000 businesses to create banners, bars, popups, and embedded webforms on your website. You can also create landing pages, special offers, and a whole slew of other awesome things.

In Privy’s report, The State of Email List Growth 2016, they analyzed six months worth of data across 5,000 active users to discover and present email capture and list growth best practices.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The best types of offers to associate with your campaigns
  • What performs better…popups, banners, or tabs?

    Great episode! 🙂

    I found the analysis of banners vs popups vs tabs quite insightful. I think probably it has something to do with one small action leading to another.

    And the targeting tips for mobile, tablet, desktop are also very helpful.
