7. Increase Your Feed Subscribers with 5 Simple Tips

Here are some interesting tips on how to get more Blog Subscribers. I know some of you may think that you don’t want a large part of your readers reading from their feed readers because it is much harder to monetize a feed than it is monetize your already running blog.

Here’s five step how to increase your feed readers:

Content is King:-
This advice is almost mandatory in all blog advice posts. Regardless of how simple it is to subscribe to your blog, visitors will not subscribe to your blog if your content isn’t interesting. So go ahead, implement these changes and get back to writing your blog.

Offer full feeds:-
Do not try to trick your feed subscribers by offering partial content. No matter how catch your title or excerpt is, they are not going to click through every time. RSS feed subscribers are busy people and often have dozens of feeds they have to get through before they can sleep peacefully. They’ll tolerate your stinginess for a while and then hit the ‘unsubscribe’ button. So always offer them full Feeds.

Don’t display your RSS count button:-
If your subscriber base is less than 100. So don,t display youur RRS Count Button. People often like to read what other people are reading and a small subscriber count may turn them off or might seem as if your content isn’t worth subscribing. When you have a large enough (subjective) subscriber base, feel free to flaunt it around.

‘Asking’ your readers to subscribe:-
Ask for Subscription at the end of each post, like this -I hope you enjoyed reading this post. You may now subscribe to my RSS Feed or receive daily updates on your Email .

How visible is your feed button. Try this one to attract some attention to it. You can drop this RSS Button Bomb once a week.
