Isn’t it great when someone new comes into your store?

But what happens after they leave?

It’s possible you’ll never see them again.

What can you do to make sure that doesn’t happen?

It’s simple; collect email addresses from customers while they’re in your store.

Then use email marketing to encourage repeat business.

Learn how to grow your email list quickly and easily in our new webinar: How to Ask for Email Addresses, Anywhere. Can’t attend live? Register anyway and we’ll send you a recording.

Here are three simple ways to collect email addresses in store without having to lift a finger:

1. The Constant Contact ListBuilder App

Say goodbye to deciphering chicken scratch and transferring contacts into your Constant Contact account. Grow your email list faster with the ListBuilder app.

With ListBuilder, you can collect new email subscribers right from your iPad or Android tablet.

Build Your Email List -- ListBuilder
ListBuilder lets people enter their names and contact information, even without internet access. All contacts collected offline will automatically sync to your Constant Contact account the next time you connect to the internet.

ListBuilder is a free app — available for iOS or Android users.

2. Text to Join

As people browse your merchandise, they’re also likely holding a mobile device. Take advantage of this opportunity by hanging signage throughout your store to encourage people to sign up for your email list.

With Text to Join, your customers can use their mobile device to text a unique keyword. Then, they’ll be asked to text their email address to be added to your Constant Contact email list.

You can create a customized Text to Join Sign right in your account.

3. Guest wifi

Do you have guest wifi available to patrons at your store?

With Gazella Wifi, you can grow your email list by having guests enter their email address to access your free wifi.

Once those guests connect, Gazella’s integration adds contacts directly into your Constant Contact account.

Be sure to provide an enticing reason to join your list

Stay away from generic language like: “Join our email list.” Instead, highlight the value new subscribers can expect to receive for joining your email list. Need more help? Find out how to ask for email addresses.

Stop missing out on repeat sales!

Use the tools above to automatically add customers to your email list, so you’ll have a way to contact them once they leave the store.

Then you can encourage them to shop with you again and again. Get ready for more business coming to your store!
