When you are starting with a new blog, getting 1000 subscribers is perhaps a dream that you want to achieve one day, and it most certainly will take more than a few promo koozies to win over that many suscribers. However, many big blogs out there are having more than 100,000 subscribers in their blog. Here are some tips to get 1000 subscribers for your new blog:
1. Increase your blog traffic
The first thing that you need to focus is actually not about how to get many subscribers to your blog, but about how to increase your blog traffic. More traffic means more opportunity to get more subscribers to your blog. So, you should actively increase your blog traffic by various means such as guest posting, blog commenting, forum marketing, article marketing, video marketing, and so on.
2. Create a separate squeeze page
If you want to seriously attract subscribers to your blog, create a squeeze page where you can exclusively promote your blog to your readers. Entice them to subscribe to your blog and give them free stuffs if necessary. If you only ask them to subscribe for your blog’s daily updates, you probably don’t need to do it. However, if you want to build a mailing list for your blog, it is a necessary step to do because it will increase your chance to convert your blog readers into subscribers.
3. Prove that your blog is valuable
Your blog readers will come again to your blog if you can prove to them that you can deliver valuable information to your blog readers. And the more valuable the information that you provide in your blog, the more people will be interested to subscribe to your blog. There are many less valuable blogs that get fairly good numbers of subscribers, so why not you?
4. Connect with other blogs
Your blog can’t be a standalone blog and you can’t expect good number of subscribers if you make your blog as a standalone blog. You need to connect with other blogs in order to attract more traffic to your blog. Guest posting is an effective way to connect with other blogs and attract new subscribers to your blog. Schedule some time to write guest posts for relevant and popular blogs in your niche.
5. Install pop-up opt-in form
Pop-up opt-in form will be useful to convert your first time blog readers into subscribers. Usually, it is also an effective way to increase the number of your subscribers significantly. In order to effectively entice your readers to subscribe to your blog, you have to ask them to subscribe to your blog actively. One simple way to do this is by using pop-up opt-in form.
