There’s a method for doing everything in online marketing, and building your base of RSS subscribers is a method for building consistent traffic that returns to your site. So today we want to talk about three commonly used approaches to realize more RSS subscribers.
One of the key points that you need to keep in mind when increasing your RSS feed subscribers is to have great headlines for your content. It’s important to give your content the best headlines possible because hopefully they’ll compel people to want to read your RSS feeds. People tend to read only those articles that have interesting titles. If you’re not a copywriter, then it’s in your very best interest to learn as much as you can about headline creation. Avoid writing cutesy headlines or the kind that do not relate to the content. There are lots of approaches to learning how to write effective headlines, and you can read articles on popular social bookmarking sites to get a good idea about it. You can tip the odds in favor of getting RSS subscriptions if provide the kind of unique content that’s not easy to find. Your headlines will make your content look interesting and will compel people to subscribe to it.
One other action you can take is creating a page explaining RSS, what to do, how to subscribe, etc. It all depends on your audience, and you’ll know if the majority of them are sort of technically challenged. You can create a page explaining everything, and if you see your RSS subs increase then you’ll know it helped. Another cool thing is do another article/page content that talks about RSS readers and how to get them and use them. You’d be surprised at the numbers of people who probably have never even heard of RSS or a reader. You can even give them the most common and best choices of readers to use. They will appreciate it if you refer them to the best tools and resources.
Last but not the least; you can also link to your RSS feed in your email signature since it’s a great way to get more subscribers. You can just place it there and leave it and just know that it’s doing its own small part to help. Besides that you should also participate in targeted forums in your niche so that you can have your RSS feed link in the signature and have people subscribe to your feed. There are more methods you can employ to build your base of RSS subscribers, and we encourage you to do this, as well.
