Google traffic is no longer safe
After the recent changes that happened to google algorithm it became clear that blogs that depend solely on search engine traffic are in danger.
The second best alternative to search engine traffic is recurring traffic where people keep visiting your site more than once and thus grow your traffic exponentially.
That’s why I decided to write a post to tell you how you can increase your newsletter subscribers quickly and effectively.
How to get more newsletter subscribers:
1) Install the wordpress newsletter signup plugin.
Have you ever visited a blog and found a checkbox that says “subscribe to our newsletter” right below the comment box? When you install the newsletter signup plugin your readers will see this check box and will get subscribed to your newsletter immediately if they checked it.
2) Create a contest for your current subscribers.
Email your current subscribers and tell them that the person who invites the largest number of friends to your newsletter will get a gift. This gift can be a free Ebook or any other gift. Make sure you tell those people about all the steps needed to invite someone so that you increase the number of respondents.
3) Change the place of your opt in form.
Experiments were made to find out the effect of the placement of your opt in form on the subscribers rate and it was found that placing your form on the top left of every page increases the number of daily subscribers. Also the light box was found to be a very effective way of collecting subscribers but its problem is that it can annoy your visitors.
4) Write down the number of your subscribers.
If you already have a good number of subscribers then according to the social proof theory writing this number on your blog will help you get more ones. When people find a ghost house blog they quickly flee because they can hardly trust it but when they find a popular blog they stick to it and subscribe to its newsletter.
5) Exchange announcements.
Ask a blogger in your same niche to announce your newsletter to his subscribers in exchange for announcing his newsletter to your subscribers. This action can sometimes bring you hundreds of subscribers in a single day.
If you sell products then use the Email addresses of people who bought your books. Don’t just add those people but instead send them a message telling them that because they previously purchased your products they can now have access to your free course.
Put the link to your newsletter in the email you send them and many of them will join your newsletter.
