Bloggers have to face real tough competition nowadays to increase their hits; I’m sure you will agree with me on this. Every website now wants to increase their subscribers and market their products.
And the number of websites in the blogosphere keeps on increasing in a very rapid rate. Unless and until a blogger is able to establish a connection with their readers, it is going to be really tough.
With an email list, you can connect directly with your readers (by landing in their inboxes). Without that connection, you will be just another information provider and you could be easily forgotten.
That is why, building an email list is so crucial. You should start building your list from day 1.
So what do you need to build an email list?
Sure you do need some ammo on your side to be able to get your readers to join your list. And the story just begins.
After they join your list you need to feed them with exclusive content to make them feel special.
You have to make sure that you offer what you promised when they signed up.
Usually most internet marketers offer freebies (in the form of e-books, audio or video courses, white papers, reports and the stuff alike).
By the way read this post if you are not sure about offering a freebie as an incentive to add people to your email list:
In order to capture the emails, deliver your freebie(s) and to maintain constant contact with your subscribers you need to have an email autoresponder service.
Read my review and comparison of Aweber and Mailchimp here, if you need assistance with choosing the best email autoresponder for your biz.
Now this is all the nicer part of the story
And here is where cool plugins come to our help! The call to actions need to be at the right places, and preferably in multiple places (without annoying your readers).

In addition to this, there is also an option for the viewer also to share the post on his wall. It is never enough to just install the plugin and not maintaining or tracking them.

Some viewers though interested in your blog, would not want to subscribe with you.

Once the user has subscribed with you, it is not necessary to disturb him with optin form again. So, you can disable the form for registered user for certain period of time (say 30 days, or forever).
