Let that sink in: Joseph recommends that you spend 54 minutes promoting your blog for every hour you spend writing.

How To Promote Your Blog With Email Marketing

1. Build your email list.

When Noah Kagan from OkDork wrote a post about getting more traffic for every single postyou publish, his very first tip was to start building and prioritizing your email list. It’s the best way to turn organic traffic into engaged readers who constantly see the cool stuff you’re publishing and keep coming back to your blog.
As we know at CoSchedule, we focus on converting our traffic into email subscribers because they’re more likely than any other audience type to become regular users of our editorial calendar software.

Noah has a couple awesome tools he uses to build his email list, including the SumoMe pluginList Builder, and Scroll Box. At CoSchedule, we’ve used tools like OptinMonster and LeadPages. Any of these should work well for building your initial email list to give you an audience that will read your posts and share them with their networks. As Noah puts it:

Growing your email list is an amazingly vicious cycle. You get subscribers, email them when an article goes live, they go read it and then share it with people. Then those people subscribe and the cycle delightfully continues.
