Step 1 to Increase your email subscribers: Watch Short Video Below
Step 2 to Increase your email subscribers: Once you have watched Step 1 above you should create a Google doc or a simple excel spread sheet with your top 5 or 10 performing posts as below. These are your next offers and content upgrade ideas: Take the time to do this only if serious about growing your business and brand online.
Step 3 to Increase your email subscribers: Once you know which posts are performing best, decide which are going to be Content Upgrades or simply where you will post your offer or both to be honest. Details on how to do this in Part 1. You are creating a download or resource linked to that page instantly providing value to your audience, those that take action anyhow.
Here’s how it works:
Once you have published a refreshed or new detailed and content rich post, create extra materials for it e.g.:
- A step by step tutorial
- A checklist
- A video walkthrough
- A podcast
- A PDF of that post for future readers
- Any other type product that will enrich your audience.
Step 4 to Increase your email subscribers: Create a Landing page for your Offer:
Now its super easy to create a landing page for your additional content using either a simple Aweber form, or whatever tool you use to create your landing/capture pages. We recommend a Free resource if you don’t have one try Landingi (Free resource right here) and offer it to your readers in return for their email.
I know that most people are super tired of offers and popups, so you want to stand out for all the right reasons from the noise of popups. And as Ray Higdon says,
“You can take a horse to the river and make it drink…By salting its food.”

So you should make Right & Integral use of your:
- In-content Forms that I talked about in a post before.
- Headers like Hello Bar
- Use your Side bar
- And end-content bar or forms
Always remember that your audience will only pick up what they find valuable, so always over deliver in your posts. You will capture your audience’s attention for the sheer value you give…Build on that trust it is so worth it.

[bctt tweet=”Why Use feature Boxes to increase email subscribers?”]
They are a super powerful list building tool right on your blog too. This works for many, a Box of content that is placed above your content.
It showcases a brief synopsis of what your Site or Blog is about and why people would benefit if they subscribe. Check out a couple of examples below.
These features are recommended because:
- They are attention grabbing, thus capturing the readers attention from the get go.
- You Can use them as an opt-in form Right on your home page, or Top of any page/post thus helping you convert more of your readers into Subscribers as soon as they land on your site. So that Popup you may not like so much is not needed to trigger an optin.
- You can use it to target feature box a specific post/page on your site. Why not promote one of your A content upgrades.
- They state exactly what you are offering or what your website is about to your visitors, so if they’re interested in learning more they’ll likely sign up.
- They are a conversation starter…A Welcome Message for your audience so to speak.

You can create, manage and track multiple feature boxes from a single user-friendly interface in either of these. The latter is a paid product from the get go. Landingi allows free usage, you get up to 500 visitors to your pages free after which you could upgrade. By then it either pays for itself or you can bin it!
