Add a call to action to your bio on Facebook, Instagram and any other social media accounts you have.

The next thing you can do is to offer lead magnets For example offer a free Download of a quality eBook, A Free Checklist So people can download those resources in exchange of their contact information.
If you promote this through your post, you can mention something like: Follow the link in my bio and tell then exactly what they are getting from you!
You can include call to action on your Facebook page and ask your visitors to sign up for your newsletter… Another great way to build your list is to create a subscribers-only Facebook group.

Create a personalized call to action for your landing page or blog post.
People who visit your landing pages, websites or blog posts are looking for a specific information So you need to tailor your call to action to those people.
