Thread: Tips - Increaing Your Subscriber Count

Hybrid View

  1. Post Tips - Increaing Your Subscriber Count

    Heya!

    Everyone wants to have many people reading their feeds.
    Even if you get lot of traffic, it may not convert.

    Here are some tips which I use to increase my blog's subscriber count:

    - Use a good subscribe icon. An attractive catchy one will do the trick.

    - If you are using WordPress, use a plugin like Subscribe Remind.

    -Include E-mail subscriptions- Not everyone out there has a feed reader.

    -Hold a contest- This will kick your count up, but there are very high chances that they will unsubscribe after the contest.

    Do you use these tips? Have any tips to share? Liked these tips?

    Feel free to post below!

    Cheers!

    To get more subscribers, two things are really very important:

    - Getting more eyeballs - It's obvious, more traffic, more people convert.
    - Making it easier for them - You made it clear with your post.

    Do that two, and be a little creative with your methods, you'll do quite good.

  3. Agreed!

    Making it easy is most essential.

    Also, I will post an example of a dedicated subscription box, like i am doing on my blog.

    Thanks for the tips, and yes I was using most of them when I was having my blog. Except for the contest though. And my e-mail subscription software wasn't at all ideal. I'll focus on that when I will launch my new project.

    Isn't checking on people who subscribe for a contest pretty hard? Ah well. I should get e-mail subscriptions though.

    Yeah, I want email suscriptions too. How do you get them? :$

    BTW, contests are in my opinion pretty useless for RSS as loads of the readers just leave when the contest is over

    I think the ideal if you have to run a contest is to set the rules like this:


    -Contestants have to suscribe to your blog with the e-mail form,
    -Same with the RSS feed,
    -A mimnimum of one quality comment is required.


    Even if they unsuscribe from your feed, you still have their e-mails! ;p

    Well, you use feedburner to do email subscriptions. After setting it up, go to 'Publicize >> Email Subscriptions'.

    I hope this helps!
