PopUps are still the best method
I’ve tried many different ways to get people to subscribe, and it’s a fact that popups work better than any other method. The only problem with it is that it’s also the most annoying method. Many people will leave and never come back once they see a popup.
But I’m still using this method, because new subscribers are important.
By the way, I’m using
I used to make the popup appear the very second a new visitor arrived at my blog. Now I’m testing a different approach. I’m only showing it to the people who are at my blog for at least 50 seconds.
I won’t get as many new subscribers this way as I was when the first thing they saw was the popup, but I believe that I will get a better quality of the subscribers, and less irritated readers.
The reason I believe I will get a better quality of subscribers is that they’ve read at least one article and I think that they are probaly more interested of subscribing to my newsletter when they’ve spent 50 seconds on my blog and they understand better what they’ll get when they subscribe.
