How List Grower Security Works

Our most popular feature is List Grower Security.  Why you ask?… Because it can grow your list for you!

Quick Explanation of List Grower Security

Existing subscribers get to download your file in one click. Non-Subscribers must opt-in to get your file.

Here is a fun graphic on how it works:

Digioh List Grower Security

Existing Subscribers Get Hassle-Free Downloads!

When you put your file on “List Grower Security” and send it out, all your existing subscribers can download the file in one click (as if it was on “No Security”). Now, lets say one of your subscribers loves your file so much that they decide to forward it on and post it on Twitter. Because you set your file to List Grower Security, Digioh will automatically turn the download link into an opt-in form. In order to get your file the new visitor will need to opt-in to your list first.

Special Note: If you are testing your download link on List Grower Security make sure you send a test-email by sending it in an actual newsletter. If you try to copy/paste the download link into your browser it will be treated as if you are a non-subscriber and go to your opt-in page.

New Emails Automatically Added

When you get a new subscriber Digioh will automatically add it to your list for you. No need to upload spreadsheets and do manual data entry (FYI: we do offer the ability to export all your customer data in CSV format if you need to!) Anytime you get a new email address added to your list we will send you an email notification.

All Downloads Tracked

Every Download is tracked. We know you can already see clicks but now you can see real file downloads. For example we can tell you which one of your subscribers actually went on to download your order form, MP3, or whitepaper. This allows you to know exactly which on of your subscribers to follow up with first. For example:

[email protected] just downloaded “Top Secrets PDF”!

You will get an email notification (which can be turned off) and it will be logged into your Digioh Dashboard.

Forwards and Referrals Tracked

The best part of List Grower Security is we can tell you which one of your subscribers forwarded on the file. For example:

[email protected] was just added to your list and downloaded “Top Secrets PDF”!

Referred by [email protected]

In the example above Sarah forwarded your file on to Frank and she signed up for your list. Now, you know Frank is pretty influential and you can send him a box of cookies for helping you grow your list!

Opt-In forms Fully Customizable

Australian Drug Foundation Opt-In Form

You can do a lot with our opt-in form customization settings. You can add additional fields like a phone number, address, comment box, or anything else you want to collect from your new subscriber!

You can totally rebrand everything. You can add your logo, change button colors, add extra links in the footer, change the background image … the design possibilities are endless!

Subscribe Checkbox

We want to remain compliant so you can add a “Subscribe” Opt-In box in the customize section of your Opt-In form. The text is totally editable.

Use List Grower Security Files on Your Website

After you send out a newsletter with your file, put it to work for you! Take your Digioh download link and put it on your blog or website. This allows you to give new website visitors another reason to join your newsletter.

Special note when testing: We track the IP address and limit the number of downloads to 3 by default within a certain period of time. If you try to download your file 3 times or after a few days you will see the opt-in page. The best way to test your download link is by sending a newsletter to a live test list and downloading it from another computer.

After reading all the awesome List Grower Security benefits I hope you are as pumped about as we are! We have over 5,000 customers using it 🙂 If you have any questions – let us know in the comments below or contact us.

I’m lost. I have some one who downloaded my files but his email was protected– but your note said if I wanted to find out who downloaded my files, I can just go to List Grower…well here I am…but there is absolutely nothing in the above that directs me at all to find out what email address downloaded my files…

Hey Tony,

Great question!

1) You should receive an email notification when anyone downloads your file. This can get annoying if you have a lot of downloads so you may have turned this off. You can turn them on or off in your “Email Preferences” section. Just go to “My Account” -> “My Email Preferences”

2) You can also see a big list of all the customers that downloaded your file. Just click on the “Tracking” button under your file.

Can I upload an existing email list?

Thank you,

Rishi Shah October 1, 2013 at 6:18 pm

Hi Deloris,

Yes, you can. All you need to do is make it a list in your email marketing software. Then, select that list when you are setting up your List Grower security settings.

Let me know if you have any other questions!
