How to Use Webtalk to Build Your Email Marketing List
I have been using Webtalk since 2018 and have been a big fan of this platform. Best of all, everyone on Webtalk is there in a making money mode.
The platform’s purpose is heavy networking and making money from its affiliate program, a social pay program
If you are on Webtalk only for its social pay program and not using it for marketing, then you are missing out.
Webtalk can be an effective tool for building your email list. The real estate of Webtalk is in the ability to grow connections base very first if you do things in the right way.
Creating content on Webtalk has one downside. The platform doesn’t offer a straightforward built-in solution to collect leads or tools for building an email list.
The only ways your Webtalk readers can qualify themselves as potential customers are:
- Your readers can leave a comment on your post or hit on a like button.
- They can visit your Webtalk profile, decide to follow you,make a connection request or reach out via a TalkMail message.
- And they can share your content with their network.
Webtalk messages can help you identify hot leads who are ready to buy. But Webtalk messaging can be slow, unlike email marketing.
With email marketing, you can categorize and organize messages in folders or stages based on the buyer’s buying journey.
The average number of touch points between a brand and prospects previously on social media sites was between 7 and 12 touch points. But over the past couple of years and in this pandemic crisis, the averaging to almost 30 sometimes.
Did you know that people you interact with on Webtalk are more likely to engage with your email message because they are familiar with you?
Because of this familiarity, moving these connections to a more formal medium like your email list can boost your engagement. This also makes you look a lot more professional than sending a sales pitch as a direct message in Webtalk.
With this in mind, growing an email list using Webtalk can help you have a powerful sales force network and leverage these emails in various digital marketing campaigns.
Let’s dive in and explore the effective methods and tools you can use to build an email list on Webtalk:
Welcome readers to share your Webtalk post
Include a Call-to-Action in every post you share on Webtalk.
A Call -to Action can read like this:
If you find this post helpful, please share it with your network.
With this approach, you will condition your readers to be sharing your content if they think it will benefit their network.
Invite readers to connect with you on Webtalk
At the end of each post, invite people to follow you on Webtalk. Make sure you share the same post with other social media sites at the same time.
Sharing your posts on other social media increases your reach and can cause more referrals to Webtalk.
The Call-to-Action for this method could read like this:

Use Webtalk Lead Magnets or funnels
Another method you can use to collect emails on Webtalk is using lead magnets. This method could be effective on other platforms such as Medium, Quora as they are on Webtalk.
A lead magnet is an incentive that you offer potential buyers for their names and email addresses. A great lead magnet gives readers exactly what they want.
Once you have a lead magnet, this could be as a PDF of your ebook or White Paper. You can attach them to your landing page that pre-sells your free resource and the value that it will bring to your readers.
You can place your landing page link in your Webtalk profile’s About Me Section, at the end of your post or share it via TalkMail.
Just make sure that what you offer for their email is something valuable and share quality content
In the vein of a lead magnet, here are the email marketing tools you can use to create a Webtalk lead magnet and grow an email list on Webtalk.
- Webtalk + Medium + Quora sites to publish content all for free.
- Beacon to create all your lead magnets, including converting your content into ebooks.
- GrooveFunnels (GrooveMail to collect contact details of readers who request your freebie).
There are many other tools out there that you can use in your email list building using Webtalk.
Getting a targeted audience on your email list is good, but the real value of email marketing comes from monetization.
To achieve this, you need to always expose your readers to your content so that you build the Know, Like, and Trust factor.
Focus on building a network before your prospects decide to work with you and eventually join your mailing list.
Your email drip sequences and funnels are key to helping you convert those subscribers into paying customers.
Put these methods into action so you see the results for yourself.
