You can start the Welcome Email Template by welcoming the new user/subscriber and then tell what you are or what you do with follow up links of your website. Links can be of your different articles or the services you’re providing for which they signed up for. You can also different tools that you are advertising on your website.

Welcome Email has the highest opening rate. Since the user just subscribed to your newsletter, so there’s a high chance of the user to open the welcome Email and you get traffic.

Quora / Reddit

Quora is a Q/A Website, where people ask questions and you answer. Quora is very important as the more you answer to other people, there’s a chance people will check you out more.


All you need to do is sit down for 20 or 30 minutes on Quora and answer the questions randomly. Once you’re in there, people start listening to you as you are spending time in there and you know what you are doing. DO NOT SPAM ANSWERS or QUESTIONS!

This goes the same for Reddit. Reddit is a huge platform where you can post your links. What you need to do is make an account on Reddit and start answering the posts. You can upvote a post or downvote it. If your comments get upvotes you get points, these points are called karma points. Karma points help you with the popularity of your account.

As you gain more karma points on reddit, your chance for getting your posts approved increases. And once your posts start getting approved, you are on your way to potential customers.
