    Hey all,

    I'm going to give email marketing a try and need a few ideas + some help if I may.

    What I have and plan to do -
    I have a few tumblr accounts that are starting to grow faster each day - nothing huge but one is getting around 20-30 new followers per day.
    My main one has 839 followers and I have all the posting automated with 200 images in queue(I add more each week). I get over 1000+ notes every 3 days and all my images are linked to a domain I have which is redirected to a cb product.

    I've made one sale this way but sent a lot of hops to get it..I'm thinking I would be way better off growing a list and building more of a relationship with them. My target is females interested in fitness/weight loss - 90% or so of my followers are or look to be female :D

    My plan
    Keep growing my tumblr accounts, grow a fb, twitter and instagram account as well. Make a simple one page lander with an optin - drive traffic from my social accounts.

    BUT I don't know what to offer them as a freebie to bribe them to subscribe.

    Do freebies still work like a free ebook or would something like - 5 Simple Things That Helped Me Lose Weight FAST! Then just give an awesome list of 5 tips? Once they sub then send them to the page with the list of whatever kind of thing?

    Hope I'm making sense lol...But anyway. What can I offer people to enter their emails?
    Is anyone else having success with tumblr,fb ect and growing a list?

    You can still easily pull in subscribers with compelling landing pages, and a targeted incentive. You are in a nice evergreen niche as well, so there should be tons of PLR around if you want to just throw something together fairly quickly/easily. You may find building the relationship to be a bit more important in a health niche, so you better line up some decent newsletter/tip content and don't just burn through your leads ... they won't convert much better on total hard-sell copy, so you're going to have to give them some value if you want to extract the same in kind. Just do it!

    Send them sales copy with CPA offers and other forms of 2 page submits.

    Converting with landing pages is easy, traffic sources which are consistent are the difficult parts in this ordeal.
