How to Increase Email Subscribers
I am going to give you nine different ways using which you can grow your email list at an
#1. Offer a Valuable Freebie
Who doesnt love to get something for free? The same principle goes on for your readers
as well. If you offer something exclusively for your subscribers, chances are a lot of the
audience will get converted to your subscribers within no time.

As his visitors are bloggers who look forward to making money, he can pull out a lot of
#2. Insert a Form to Your Homepage
This one is for the blogs getting a decent number of visitors already. As people know you
are giving them worthy content, they will not be hesitant to subscribe to your list.
On the other hand, you will get disappointed by your list growth if you have a new blog.
Why because no one gives away their email address to a whole new man. For that to
happen, you must show them that their email address is going to get them something
#3. Make it Easy to Sign up
I have seen some bloggers making it pretty difficult for the visitors to sign up for their
email list by putting the form only in the footer.
If you really want to increase the size of your email list, NEVER do that. Put a
subscription form 2- 3 times on your blog where visitors eyes reach the most.
#4. Hide Some Parts of Your Blog Post
If you are writing an exclusive post on your blog with a unique trick, you can hide the
core content with an email form so that, no one can read it without signing up to the list.
There are a lot of free and premium WordPress plugins are available to do the same.
#5. Add a Comfortable Popup
Yeah, its true that everyone loves not to see popups. But a neatly designed and please-
to-see popup can positively impact the number of your subscribers.
The popup a few seconds after the complete loading of the web page is preferred. And,
you should make sure not to frustrate readers with poorly built full-screen forms.
SumoMe is one of the best free plugins you can use for this. The best option is it allows
you to customize the form with custom HTML and CSS codes.
#6. Display Forms on Your Social Media Pages
Social media is one of the gold mines for a digital marketer. The first fact that makes
social media crucial is it has the potential to bring you millions of visitors only with a
single viral post.
That's why having a sign-up form on your social media pages is important.
#7. WWSGD Method
WWSGD stands for What Would Seth Godin Do and it's a plugin. We all know how
famous Seth Godin's blog is despite not having a top level domain. He use a welcome
note at the beginning of every post to grow his RSS subscribers.
The WWSGD plugin uses the same method to increase our subscribers with a pleasant
#8. Thank Your Commentators
Another way to increase your email list is to display a personalized message to your
commentators with an email list sign up form.
You can use Yoasts Comment Hack plugin for this purpose. This method needs extreme
care as you should not display the same over and over to the existing subscribers. I
recommend showing a thank you message to the first time commentators only.
#9. Name Your Email List
Naming your Email list is an incredible strategy to skyrocket the number of subscribers.
As the term newsletter is clichd, people seem tedious to read the same on your blog as
You can use a custom name like marketing missive or anything creative
