How To Get 1,000 New Email Subscribers In 30 Days
Have you ever imagine having a thousand plus email subscribers, whom are fond of reading every new post you publish on your blog within a shorter time; like a month ?
I believe we all know how special it is, for you to have those email subscribers especially when you’ve experienced that moment when you spend plenty hours just to get that killer blog content up and viral but ended up getting no shares, minor views or no views at all despite the time and effort spent.
I know how heartbreaking and frustrating this could be, this is why i decided to share this article with you, and who knows what miles your next content will travel.
The solution to this problem is by merely building a solid email subscriber base for your blog.
There are two fundamental processes you could achieve this and they are:
- Making your audience feel your worth, and be willing to give you their email addresses.
- Secondly, making them to subscribe to your RSS feeds.
The above are the basic ways of obtaining email list of your subscribers, and below will be more broader ways to achieve those 1000+ subscribers within 30 days.
So lets roll up our sleeves and get into the main business.
Top 5 Ways To Get 1000+ Email Subscribers In 30 days
1. Ask Your Visitors To Drop Their Emails
I use to wonder why would some business owners hesitate in asking their visitors for their email addresses?
Of course many people care about the type of emails they receive and will likely ignore your plea, but many others will subscribe if your contents are superb.
Use all the appropriate means you have to promote your email subscribers list without being scared.
Let’s take Buffer as our Case Study: when the company decided that they want to scale up their efforts so as to to increase their subscribers list, they recorded a 100% increase in subscriptions for the period of 30 days.
Now, let’s talk up how they made this a reality.
Here’s how it was done:
Rather than adopting the main method of collecting signups through the slide-up box, they decided to explore 8 more and individual methods through which their readers can subscribe to their email list. The different methods used are as follows:
- A signup button at the upper side of their page ( hello bar )
- At the Sidebar
- At the Postscript
- At the Homepage
- At Their slideshare Presentations
- At their Twitter
- At Qzzr
- At Facebook
What we should understand right from the above case study is that we don’t have to be scared about trying other options because they might be the best options that will score us the perfect subscriptions.
Make sure you analyse every outcome on which medium or strategy give you the best results within a specified period of time.
2. Make a Promotional Campaign or a Giveaway of Freebies
When you offer a truly valuable content for free, people will be on a race to have their own share (who wouldn’t want something free? ) and don’t be surprise to see some people that don’t even know the purpose of what you’re offering for free, subscribing just because it was tagged “free of charge”.
Some of the opt-in offers that marketers give away for free to entertain more subscriptions are:
- Ebooks or other downloadables
- Member-specific discounts
- Email courses
- Insights or ideas to solve one problem or the other.
- White Papers
- Survey results
- Member-only discounts
You may try many other opt-in incentives that could earn you more subscribers based on what you have and think they’ll be interested in.
3. Hold a contest
Contests with giveaways are great ways to captivate more subscribers to build up your list within a short period of time.
You don’t have to spend realistic amount of money on the price, some businesses can host contests with prices as low as $4 of worth.
LoL, don’t get it wrong, but I’m sure your email list is much more than the price of your giveaway.
4. Use A Pop Up Box
Pop up boxes are annoying ( I can testify to that as well ) but researchers believe that they are very effective (extremely!) in building your email list.
Since audiences find pop up boxes very annoying, they may get frustrated and decide to leave your page especially when the content they are trying to read is not good enough or worth their emails.
Therefore, handling this method with care is what you need so as not to drive away your traffic.
Among the different types of pop up boxes we have, there are some least annoying ones you could use. These boxes may only appear when the users are about to leave your site or switch to a different window, other nay a a simple, “X” button for getting rid of the pop up.
5. Optimize Your Most Popular Blog Posts For Opt ins
Chances are clear that since your most popular blog posts have the greatest traffic flow, optimising those posts in order to attract more email subscribers for your list through the posts is more effective than the less popular ones.
Of course you can know how popular each of your blog posts is by simply using Google analytics to find out how often have your audience been viewing each of your posts.
When you figure out the popular posts, make sure you embed Call To Actions (CTAS), links or buttons That will lead your visitors to subscribe to your feeds or join your email list.
This way, you’re harnessing your opportunity by getting more subscribers through the traffic you’re already having from your posts.
Before we call it a day, lets discuss a bit of what we have learnt from the writeup in view.
