In the world of blogging, building a loyal audience is the key to success. Unfortunately getting people to sign up for your newsletter or RSS feed isn’t an easy task. However there are a few simple tactics that can speed things up.
This article enlists some easy ways to get more subscribers:
Offer something in return
This technique is being used by all the successful bloggers and internet entrepreneurs. If you want to get a lot of subscribers in a short amount of time then you should offer something in return. For example you can write a short course on your favorite topic or design a free theme. Just make sure that the item you are offering is truly worthwhile. If writing an ebook sounds like a lot of work, you can hire a freelancer to do it for you.
Write valuable content
If your website is helpful, people will automatically start signing up for the newsletter but if it is filled with junk content no one will bother. Each article on your website should offer something new to the reader. Also, your writing style should be simple and interesting.
Purchase a good subscription management plugin
There are more than a few subscription management plugins available in the market. With the help of these plugins you can place your subscription forms in the most effective spot.
Personally I prefer Maxblogpress Subscribers Magnet. It comes with dozens of different features and options. According to its creators it can increase your signup rate by 3 times.
