How To Increase Your Blog Subscribers In Two Easy Ways

On August 21, 2011, in Blogging, by Sonny Lanorias

In this article I am going to share with you how to increase your blog subscribers in two easy ways. Your blog is an essential part in your overall strategy in your online home based business. Why? Because your blog is your central hub and your home base online. This is where you build trust and rapport to your followers. And more importantly, this is where you build and establish your brand online. The reason you are blogging is because you are sharing your expertise, skills and knowledge in your niche through content so in return you can increase your blog subscribers and build your list.

How To Increase Your Blog Subscribers In Two Easy Ways: blog

1. What Would Seth Godin Do – WWSGD is a free wordpress plugin that advocates using cookies to distinguish between new and returning visitors to your site. In simple words new visitors to your blog will see a small box above each post containing the words “If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!” After 5 visits the message disappears. You can customize this message, its lifespan and its location. Your visitor must have cookies enabled. You can see an example how this looks at the top of this post wherein I am offering my readers to receive my latest blog posts via email and a link to my lead capture page where I share my simple daily strategy to six figures. You can download the plugin here.

2. FeedBlitz – feedblitz manages rss feeds and then turns them into automated emails, tweets and instant messages to subscribers. It reads your blog’s rss feed – a computer-readable form of your blog produced by all the blogging tools out there. It then figures out what’s new and sends the updates to subscribers by email, IM and Tweet. The way to do this is to first register an account with feedblitz. Once you have set up an account with them, you can start building a subscription form then get the code, links and widgets you need to sign up visitors from your web site and email. In my case, I have inserted my link on my WWSGD box and put another subscription form on my sidebar widget where it says “enter your email – subscriber me”.

These two easy ways can really help you increase your blog subscribers and make it easy for them to return to your blog because they get updated straight in their inbox everytime you have a new content on your blog. Remember that one of the main reasons you’re blogging is because you are building your list. So make it easy for your readers to subscribe to your updates by implementing those two easy ways I have shared with you above.

    Yeah, most visitors aren’t clicking on the subscribing link I got on my site. It is sad to know that most of them just don’t mind that. They commented but never have the liking to get into my circle.
    🙁

    Hi Sonny,
    These are indeed two easy ways how to increase our blog subscribers! I believe I have used both of them already. I guess another good idea on how to increase blog subscribers is to offer freebies when they subscribe.
