As soon as a new subscriber opts-in to receiving emails from you, you have a chance to show them that you care. Send a welcome email and introduce your brand. Follow-up with emails that demonstrate how your products or services will deliver value to their lives or solve a problem for them. You can even share customer testimonials or ask for their feedback to show them how much their opinion matters.
