Your mailing list is the most direct way for you to communicate with your readers.
Even if you have an engaged audience, they might not check your blog regularly but they do check their emails on a daily basis. Υou need an email list so that you can connect with them.
An email list can have a great impact on your blog's traffic (and revenue). No matter how important social media can be for your marketing strategy, the most effective and responsive channel to communicate with your audience is through their inbox. An email list can be vital to the success of your blog.
Once you have an email list established, you can utilize it to grow your blog. Email lists have proven to be versatile for building a trusting relationship with your readers; you keep them up to date, promote new posts, send notifications, promotions etc.
Link parties are great for increasing the number of your email list subscribers. Even if you have just started a blog or you have an established blog, link parties can help you build a responsive mailing list.
People that have landed on your blog and join your link parties share similar interests with you. They have already given their consent to be contacted when they participate to your link party so it is more likely than they will be engaged with the email you sent them. This means more people opening your emails, clicking on links and taking the actions that you want them to take.
