According to statistics, almost four million posts have been written today.
That is quite a great deal of competition for readership.
This is a follow-up to my post 13 Ways a Call to Action Will Make You See Enormous Blog Stats. The article explained 13 strategic places to put a Call to Action (CTA) so that visitors would subscribe and subscribers would comment.
Bloggers wrote in response to the article, many with the same question seemingly asked in unison, “Now that you have told us where to put a Call to Action, can you please tell us how to get visitors and subscribers to respond to our Call to Action?”
Consider these comments from readers:
Jill wrote, I have tried to put a CTA in my posts before. Usually at the end. I’ve asked for comments and suggestions. It’s rare I get any, but occasionally I have a post where a few of my regular people will comment and we get a good discussion going.
Jen shared, The CTA I find the hardest is in my newsletters, I have tried everything to get them to “hit reply”, finally I added a 5 question survey-ya! Worked like a charm.
Where my main struggle is now is to get subscribers to open the newsletter. Later I am going to hunt around and see if you have a post on that one.
No longer is there a need to search for the article. This post will explain how to get readers to subscribe and how to get subscribers to comment.
