Growing Your Mailing List with Co-Registration

by Andrew Lutts

Years ago, co-registration was a "gray-area" strategy used by various companies to aggressively grow their mailing lists. Those who misused the strategy or adopted less than best practices found their reputations at risk. Now, co-registration is back and much improved. Always considered to be a very effective way to build your mailing list, co-registration is now something every mailing list owner and newsletter publisher should consider.

Net Atlantic Definition: True co-registration is simply an agreement between yourself and another newsletter publisher for cross promotion. This can often be done without cost to either party.

How It Works: You simply place a description of each other's newsletter on your "thank you for subscribing" web page. Each time a person subscribes to your partner's newsletter, he or she is also given the chance to subscribe to yours at the same time. Once the subscription is confirmed (with a confirmed opt-in email), you've got a new subscriber.

Costs: Some people pay from 50 cents to $3 per name for an email address. However, many people share lists with strategic partners, provided customers have opted to receive information on related products and services. For example, if you publish a stock market email newsletter, you could do co-registration at a real estate email newsletter site or a precious metals newsletter site, etc.

Here are several vendors who help make the process easy:
