Practical examples to attract more subscribers to your blog and newsletter

Money is on the list, they say. Therefore, we show you 7 easy examples to implement on your blog or website to attract more subscribers. And some more tricks to improve the monetization of your blog if you work with affiliates.

Define your content strategy for your newsletter

The first thing you need to be clear about is: why would a person subscribe to your blog’s newsletter? this will determine your CTA or call to action, the message you need to enact on your blog to attract more subscribers.

Some examples of CTAs for a newsletter could be:

✅ Every Sunday at 12:00 we will send you 5 business ideas.

✅ Subscribe and receive a weekly newsletter + a bi-monthly e-book + a checklist on how to invest in your blog.

✅ Receive SEO news every Wednesday on your blog (for very specific niches this CTA can work very well).

❌ Subscribe, we won’t spam you(it’s the most common thing in a blog and it’s wrong because it doesn’t bring value to the user).

Knowing this, are you clear on how to plan your newsletter?

To get active subscribers, it is necessary to define how to nurture them in the right way, so that they will be more and more eager to open the e-mail you send them.

  1. What type of content will you send to your subscribers? (E.g.: newsletter, e-book, checklists…).
  2. When are you going to send each type of content you create? (e.g.: every week a newsletter and every month an e-book).
  3. How are you going to send it to them? (Ex: I will publish all the content in the newsletter, I will publish it on my blog in a private post for subscribers, I will send them a private video…).

If you already have all this clear, let’s see practical examples to attract subscribers to your blog and newsletter.

#1. E-mail catcher

Create an e-mail catcher that appears when the user has been reading your blog for at least 30 seconds. By default, the user closes everything that appears before he can read anything on your blog -cookies, e-mail capture, advertising…-.

If you set it to come up when the reader has been on your blog for a while, you are more likely to get their attention and they are more likely to subscribe. These are the 3 types of collectors that you can configure in GetConver (the size varies, mainly, from smaller to larger):

#2. Countdown timer with countdown timer

Are you organizing an event soon, a live or private webinar for your subscribers?

Create a catcher with a countdown that generates a sense of urgency among your readers and get them to subscribe.

It is important to highlight the “for subscribers only” option in the text.

#3. Fixed bar with e-mail catcher

As with the previous catchers, you have the option to create a fixed bar with the e-mail catcher. We also recommend that it does not appear immediately, but only after the user has been scrolling for 30 seconds or has scrolled at least 40% of the time. This will make the notification much more eye-catching.

Extra tips to boost your blog even more

Extra #1: get more shares of your content

To get more subscribers you also need more web traffic. Create a notification to share on social networks, but do not show it until the user has scrolled 60% of your post. This way you will get them to share your content when they are most interested, and thus increase your social traffic.

Example of notification:

Extra #2: get more followers on your social networks by leveraging your entire website

Direct your blog traffic to the social profiles you are most interested in. It can be your Telegram channel, your Instagram, your YouTube channel, your Twitter feed….

Create a “Link Group” type notification and configure it to appear on the information pages about you: in the “About me” or “About us”, in the “Legal notice” or in the “Home”, for example. On these pages the user usually wants to know more about the person behind it.

Example of the “Link group” notification (you can edit it to your liking completely):

Extra #3: drive your blog traffic to your affiliate posts and make more money

Create a “Call to action” type notification and drive your blog users to visit posts containing affiliate links.

For example, you can create a post titled “The gadgets I use to record my YouTube videos” and put your Amazon affiliate links in it.

Now, when a user browses your blog, if the CTA jumps out at them and you manage to capture their curiosity, they will click on the notification to visit the post containing those links. This way, you multiply the possibilities of earning money with your blog.
