Okay your subscriber numbers are frustrating. Your site’s subscription list is so tiny it fits on the back of one of your hands.
While this is true every Blogsite you visit seems to say something like:
- Join over 2,500 readers by subscribing today
- Be a part of more than 10,000 satisfied, happy people already signed up
- 100,000 subscribers but who’s counting
You’re always wondering – are these numbers true?
How do these Blogger’s achieve this?
Why do people sign up happily to these lists but are reluctant to sign up for mine?
A Simple Reason Why People Are Not Signing Up To Your List
Today the average Blogsite visitor will not just give their Email Id to just anyone. They could be opening themselves up to a flood of SPAM mail, phishing attempts, identify theft, and a ton of other annoying (frightening) assaults via their mailbox.
It’s not only about privacy and security, site visitor’s mail boxes are often stuffed with newsletters that they just do not have the time to read.
Site visitors have fixed free block of time each day to read newsletters. Unless they – See Real Value – in signing on to your mailing list, they will not invest any of that time signing up to receive your newsletter in their already over-crowded mailbox.
This is always the main reason why people are not adding their Email Ids and growing your list.
The solution – give them an irresistible reason to sign up.
A reason so powerful, so valuable, that it outweighs all their reasons not to subscribe.
Translated – Bribe them with a terrific offer.
