    Hi Nosa,

    Building steady traffic for a blogger start by having a reasonable number of subscribers, when our blog subscribers are huge in number, definitely the tendency of having high unique visitor on our blog is as well very high. I used to asked my self this same question that why is that many bloggers prefer having their email subscription box below their blog post and I came to realised that it was for the sake of increasing their blog subscribers to increase their traffic most especially when there is a new update. I don’t have subscriber box below my post yet but definitely going to add that in a short while.

      The subscription box works like a charm expecially when placed under your blog post. After a visitors reads a compelling article, he might just be more than ready to subscribe and get more contents from you.

      That’s the major reason I emphasized writing high quality articles always. I wouldn’t leave my email in a blog that forces junk down my throat.

      Thanks for visiting friend. 🙂

    On point Nosa,

    I must admit that I’m a bit more comfortable at your blog than being in my own blog. Not exactly sure as to why I feel so comfortable here??? I can’t believe I’m actually reading my fourth post in your blog today 🙂

    I chose to comment on this post not to commend you but to heavily criticize the idea of using pop-ups in blogs. The ugly truth about pop-up is that it drives visitors like me away (unfortunately there are so many visitors like me) from your blog. A nice subcription form just below your blog post and sidebar should do the job perfectly.

    I don’t think sending email to your commenters is the best way to go. I wouldn’t subcribe to anyone sending me an email to subscribe to his email list. It leaves me with a weird feeling as to what happens after I’m enlisted to his ‘spam list’

    I totally agree with you on the rest of the points. Running a giveaway is fantastic too 🙂

    Thumbs Up and have a good day 🙂

      Hello Ebenezer,

      You cracked my bones there about loving my blog. It’s always a great feeling seeing a prolific blogger appreciating your works. I have equally fallen in love with your blog and I am completely impressed on what you could achieve with the Blogger platform.

      On the pop-up issue, I have never done anything in blogs that have pop-ups. I see it as a very bad attitude, forcing unwanted things down the throat of visitors. All of the time, I always look for the “cancel” button and I don’t even get to see what the blogger is desperately trying to sell to me.

      On the email point :), I have just started that and if I get complaints or low conversion. I will sure remove it ASAP..

      Thanks for visiting friend and have a great day 🙂

    Hello Nosa,
    This are indeed some nice list to increase our subscribers. Subscribers a must for all blogs to build a better readership and a never ending traffic :).

    I am getting subscribers to my blog, thanks to the strategy i used. Now let me share what works for me with you; i added a shouted color subscribe button to my side bar and i also added on exactly below my post and to be honest with you, it is helping me seriously in getting subscriber. Like my Nigerians would say, 4000 subscribers no be garri, abi?
    Nice article buddy and thanks for the mention 🙂

    This is a very well written post. Those points are really strong points that must be noted with care. The post is also in order unlike some chaotic writers. More grease to your elbows bro.

    These are great tips Nosa,

    One that resonates with me is the need to keep the message of your blog consistent! This is sometimes hard for new bloggers but with time you get used to it.

    Thanks for sharing!
