After October I will get into the whole subscribing and opt-in list methods of emarketing. Now, although it’s a part of online promotion that I’ve never had actual practical experience with, I do know more or less what it entails. The thing about subscriptions though is some people are subscription fans and others aren’t. Some people click on subscribe all the time because they enjoy receiving newsletters, news, or freebies, while others view these emails as spam.
I’ve subscribed to about 3 newsletters to date. I unsubscribed to the ‘one-new-word-a-day’ newsletter but I’ve kept my subscription to Go Ask Alice! ever since I had my Gmail account in 2005. If it’s something I’ve learned, those daily things don’t really work. They’re like spam to me. I even subscribed to a domaining newsletter and the guy sent a newsletter a day that I just had to unsubscribe no matter how interesting it was.
But anyway, I do want to get into the whole subscriptions thing but it will only be used to announce webmaster freebies and links to recommended tutorials.
This blog is still very new though, so I expect not to have that many subscribers at the beginning. But eventually if I stick to the programme the list will pick up.
This blog has almost 550 published posts and is increasing rapidly because I update almost every day, I update almost more than once a day, I get guest posters to publish their articles here, and I am also updating the blog archives.
I’ve made a vow to myself and this blog that I will not properly work at external SEO until I reach 1000 posts. This still stands. However, as I progress with this blog I do want it to be a personal website but also a resource of information related to my passions which includes blogging, webmaster-related stuff and SEO.
