Gain subscribers by running a give-away with social sharing built in

Grow your list with high-quality subscribers by running a give-away contest and including social sharing.

Jesse Neugarten of Dollar Flight Club ($1,500/mo) grew his list to 10,000 subscribers when he gave away a free flight.

He also offered them five extra entries if they followed him on social media, or four extra entries if they shared it, which made the tactic even more successful.
