      I’m sorry Patrick, but I don’t understand. Did you try to put my link in your sidebar? I use HTML code when I put widgets in my sidebar. Maybe that would work. Thanks for trying.

        I put this HTML code on widgets in my sidebar but can’t work.

    PUSHing updates is pretty cool Grace, Good idea for boosting subs. I used it for a minute a while ago. With all the mobile usage out there you better believe folks are on board. Quick and easy; no need to even send out a newsletter.

      Hi Ryan,
      Thanks for commenting. Why did you stop using Push Notifications?

    Very useful and to the point, Grace.
    Here’s another tactic for retaining existing users — Give them something unexpected. A nice gift works wonders.

    I recently started a mailing list where users get a few remote jobs to their inbox on a daily basis. But guess what? a few days later, they receive an unexpected guide on landing the best and most rewarding jobs. And it’s not just a quick / sloppy guide, either.

    This all goes into building trust while genuinely caring for your audience, which ultimately benefits you as well.

    Thanks for the awesome read,

      Hi Elvis,
      I agree with you. I heard the best optins are not downloadable.
      I have 7 optins. I use to offer a StumbleUpon service, but the site folded.
      Thanks for writing.

    I have never tried out push notifications though. But considering that most online users are now on mobile, I can see it would be effective.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Ige,
      I believe 52 of my readers get my articles by way of Push Notifications.
      It was easy and free to set up.

      Hi Praveen,
      Great to hear from you.
      Bloggers need to wear all hats: writers, marketers, psychologists, LOL.
      As funny as it sounds, an understanding of what engages users is needed.

    Hi Grace & Janice,

    Email marketing is a great way to improve conversion if done right. Your tips are helpful and easy to apply. As you said already, personalizing your email will do you more good because it gives recipients the impression that you care about them, as people love to be called by their names. In line with personalization, you also have to craft a compelling subject line to hook recipients immediately.

    Thanks for sharing these amazing tips.

    • Janice Wald

      Hi Moss,
      When I was at MailChimp, I crafted compelling subject lines but the names wouldn’t go on the Emails.
      Now I’m at Aweber. The names go on the Emails but Aweber draws from my RSS feed which is a great time-saver for me.
      Thanks for commenting.

    Hi Janice, excellent post again. Email marketing is the king of all marketing sources, gives you highest ROI of over $40 for every dollar spent.

    I personally think that you should find the best email marketing software as soon as possible which you can feel comfortable with. I’ve tried GetResponse, AWeber, ConvertKit and so on and finally using Drip to easily send broadcasts, manage my email list and clean inactive people time to time.

    That being said, sending your subscribers valuable contents and tips can always keep your list healthy and you should find out ways to make them take action. Be it clicking on your links, buying something from you or even joining a FB group from your list.

    As you said, making it easy for your subscribers to join your list is so powerful. Most people put too many fields in their email optin forms and that’s the biggest reason why they often struggle with more subscribers.

    The #1 tip would be: offer a freebie. It can be anything from ebooks to videos to checklists. Most online people would subscribe to your list if they find a freebie in exchange of their emails.

    Thanks for the tips Janice, keep posting more.

      Hi Anil,
      I appreciate your detailed comments.
      I agree with you about the value of freebies. I read that the most effective freebies are not downloadable. I’ve found that’s true.
      You’ve tried many email vendors. I’ve tried 3. I’m happy with Aweber. I reviewed email vendors last year so I’m knowledgeable about the vendors I researched. Thanks for writing and for the compliments on my article.

      Hi Siddhant,
      I’m glad you found Grace’s script helpful in boosting email marketing success.
      Check out this post on the different email vendors available to you. I reviewed many. These reviews are based on my personal experience for the most part.
