For me, subscribers are loyal friends and I am very much thankful to have them. They are the ones who tell us indirectly that our posts are good and worth reading. Although it is best to have a lot of visitors in your blog, you should also have regular customers. However before you can get convince them, you must be able to discover effective ways or techniques how to do it. We all know that content is king but it will be useless if only a small group knows about it. I have done some researches about it and am currently making some experiments. With this, I am excited to share them with you.

1.0 Join related forums. Find a forum where you can be a regular contributor. This means that you must choose a category that is related to your bog topic where you can start a good thread or reply to posts continuously. If they will like your posts there, you can gain a lot of your regular subscriber. I am a regular visitor of Steve Pavlina's forum and I try to share some brilliant ideas about parenting, marriage and blogging.

2.0 Be a guest blogger. Being a guest blogger means you can write well. This is because guest posting means making posts exclusively for other blogs. If first time visitors learned that you can do guest posting, they will be convinced that you are sincere in making good posts. Incidentally, I posted as a guest blogger for the great but humble blogger Kevin of for three wonderful times. I am still working hard to submit more.

3.0 Learn from the experts. Problogger and Copyblogger are among the few blogs where I learn useful tips in blogging. These two generous bloggers have good articles where you can learn a lot to gain more subscribers. They have posted in depth analysis articles to help us achieve what they are enjoying right now, Needless to say, both of them has thousands of regular subscribers and I am honored to be among them.

Here are some of the useful tips I learn from Copyblogger and hopefully these can help on our target.

3.1 Provide options. Some first time visitors would also like to be subscribers but they are hesitant to do so because they want more options on how get posts from you. They are your potential regular customers and you have to provide them some choices. This is the reason why I provided them two options; one is through a feeder and the other one is through e-mail. In addition, make the icons readily accessible but not to blind them.

3.2 Make it easier. Although you have already provided options, it is best to make them easier to know that you are inviting them. It is good that you have icons at your sidebars to let your readers know that they can be a subscriber, but you can also include a friendly invitation at the end of each of your posts. I will am starting this strategy in this post and provide time to edit my previous posts.

A business will not grow without regular customers. They are the ones who will help you promote it without a single penny.
