Blogging is a great technique to earn money online; but it requires consistent hard work and persistence. Attracting traffic to your blog is always the top priority of every blogger but you should also work on converting this traffic into your loyal readers.
If your readers are interested in your blog then the probability of clicking through and reading your blog will be quite high. Every blogger loves to see their subscription lists grow.
Below are few tips which can be followed to attract more subscribers to your blog:
The first criterion to gain more subscription is traffic; you just cannot increase your subscribers without increasing the traffic to your blog. Various search engine optimization techniques can help you in increasing your traffic. You should concentrate on both on-page and off-page methods to build a heavy traffic.
Write Great Content
Writing great content is another vital step; no one will return to your blog if you don’t have fresh and informative content to share. Try to understand the audience in your niche and establish a tone to start a conversation with them. Blogging is a two way connection; you should make your readers comfortable and connected.
Add personification and a personal touch to all of your posts. Bloggers that can successfully master these goals are the ones which get more subscription to their blog.
Make it easy to Subscribe
Once you have a catchy content to attract your readers, make your blog easy to subscribe. You should place the subscription buttons on the top of all your widgets.
You can also place the subscription lists in between the blog posts. Gently ask your readers to subscribe to your posts; don’t be too aggressive. You can also place a reminder at the end of every post.
You can even consider adding the number of subscriber lists below the subscription buttons. Once you reach a decent number of subscribers you can use it as an ad to attract an average reader.
Explore your options
Explore all subscription available and leverage their options to your benefit. Subscriptions may include newsletters, forums, social media, RSS feed. Thus your readers also get the options to choose from; whichever subscription option suits them the best.
Offer Something valuable
Offering freebies to your subscribers can also help. A free eBook or freebies related to your blog services. You can give detailed information about your blog in the eBook; the key factor here is to offer services which can be useful to your readers.
Explaining your services using a video tutorial can be a great option as well; often readers find it tough to read a long post. A video will certainly help you attract a new set of audience to your blog.
Implementing the above tips can increase your subscription list but don’t underestimate the power of quality content. Your content is the sole reason readers will subscribe to your blog. And for the sake of search engine optimization try to update your blog as regular as possible, it will also mark an impression to your subscribers that your blog is very much active.
