In email marketing, a recipient is a person who gives his or her permission to send them emails that may contain advertising materials, offers, company digests, invitations to events, video reviews, and other content.
What methods do marketers use to collect a recipient base?
A separate landing page for subscription
Ask your clients for permission to email them
These contacts are essential for you because people who once made a purchase in your store probably had a good user experience while making the previous purchase. That's why they trust you and may give you their email addresses to receive new offers.
Special unique content
Announce that you'll send exclusive, useful content in exchange for filling out a subscription form. It may be e-books, research, webinars, videos, etc.
Organize special online events such as webinars and quizzes to get more recipients.
Exhibitions and events
Grow your email list of recipients with the help of offline activities such as meetings, conferences, exhibitions, and tradeshows. Do not forget to send recipients a welcome email to remind them where you got his or her email address. Ask recipients to confirm their subscription to avoid spam complaints.
