SPI 320: How to Run a Contest to Build Your Email List and Grow Your Brand with Noah Kagan

Noah Kagan’s back today to talk about online viral contests and giveaways: a slice of the marketing pie that’s often overlooked. These are contests or giveaways in which the audience can take actions to gain more entries, which in turn spreads the word about the contest itself even more. It’s a fantastic, symbiotic strategy that I’ve used very successfully myself in growing my YouTube channel (now over 100k subscribers!). Plus, Noah’s got an amazing contest to announce today as well—enter for a chance to win all of my courses, a year of KingSumo Pro, and a year subscription to my Smart Podcast Player—a combined value over $1,500! [See below for rules and disclaimer.] Noah and his team developed a tool called KingSumo, and it’s amazing.

How to build an audience: my unconventional approach to rebuilding mine in a few years

In the last four years I’ve launched one 7-figure and two 6-figure businesses off the back of the audiences I’ve built up. Since a lot of the people who read my stuff don’t have an audience like mine, I often get questions, such as this one below, on how to build an audience: Thanks for the question Nick, because I was wondering what I was going to write about this week and I think this is a great topic. What a lot of people don’t know, is while I’ve been online for a decade, I actually started almost entirely from scratch 4 years ago, giving up virtually everything I’d done in the 7 years prior. There is a lot of information out there on how to build an audience, but all of it focusses on how to increase your metrics like conversions, email list subscribers, social media followers etc. The […]
