Maximizing Email Marketing: Increasing Your Sign-Up Rate

​For anyone who runs an email marketing campaign, you know that the hardest part of the battle is getting people to actually sign up in the first place.  Maybe you have great info to share, fresh ideas, and relevant content –unfortunately getting someone to actually sign up to receive all this great info is a different story.  Maybe you’re in the same boat as us where you are posting original content every week and you have plenty of readers coming to your blog.  However, people are reading the article and leaving the site.  Not signing up for more.  So, how do you change this?

Bloggers – Edit Your Work or Lose Your Readers

​Everyone is an author now.  In the time of social media marketing, content marketing, and more –we’re all authors.  Maybe some of us shouldn’t be.  As someone who lives, eats, and breathes social media and content marketing –I constantly jump on my soapbox with the theory that fresh content is all powerful.
