The above 5 places are the most visible places on any blog to grab more people attention. If you place your email optin forms in those visible places, you will certainly get more subscribers in no time, if your OFFER is good.
2. Offer something premium
Who will subscribe to your email list if you don’t provide any value to them?
Always ask yourself this question, “what’s in it for them?”
If they find value in subscribing to your list, they will surely join your email list. All they need is value for their email address in exchange.
You can’t motivate them just by using “Subscribe to my email list” etc, you have to provide something more than that to make your visitors subscribing to your blog.
Offer a free eBook, video or podcast, this makes them to join your list without any hesitation.
3. Create top notch content – this is no EXCEPTION
If your content is so good, that actually solves your readers problems, then you don’t need to specifically ask your readers to subscribing to your blog’s email list.
Always keep this point in your mind, “create content that makes people to automatically subscribing to your blog by having a fear of not to lose even a single post from you”
Always target the beginners, write in simple language,
4. It’s not in landing pages, it’s in how you use them
Landing pages are golden when you use them wisely.
Invest your money and time on creating great landing pages which will certainly attract more people to subscribing to your blog’s email list.
Because landing pages have ONLY one goal in mind.
It is… they don’t have much distractions.
The more focused your landing pages are, the better results you can acquire on your email list.
5. Social media sites can bring you better results
Have you ever worried about using social media sites like Facebook, Google+, twitter etc?
They are growing so fast like never before. You need to work hard on getting more online visibility from the social media sites to bring a boost in building your email list.
When you have readers, fans coming from social media sites, it becomes very easy for you to get more visibility and spread your message to subscribing to your list.
