10 Audience Development Strategies for Doubling Your Email List

How do you currently build your email list? For most publishers, there are two main drivers of email subscribers: 1) a measly “subscribe to our newsletter” box floating around the site, or 2) a check box on magazine subscription forms that opts them in.

Exciting, right? Subscribers must be flocking to your email list.

If this is you, I hate to break it to you but nobody wants to subscribe to your newsletter, especially when you say something as complacent as “subscribe to our newsletter.” People already have enough flooding their inboxes to sign up for something that offers no real benefit. As for the second one, nobody likes being auto-opted into things either.

Audience development efforts should focus on popular activities

A recent article from Gartner uncovers five daily activities popular with tablet users. The survey shows that on average, more people are using tablets to read books (33%) than mobile PCs (13%) and mobile phones (7%).

The survey also shares an interesting take on consuming digital content over print content. According to Gartner, “The survey found that more than 50 percent of media tablet owners prefer to read news, magazines and books on screen, rather than on paper.”

Scheduling is Key While Boosting Traffic with Twitter

Online editors and audience development professionals don’t just work the standard 9-5. Deadlines and new projects pop up and audience members make comments at random hours. Due to these elements, our jobs may take on sporadic duties.

And since we are in the business of providing timely, informative content, the frequency in publishing is important. If you publish too infrequently, your audience may look to competitors for constant information. It’s like reading or watching the news each day – people do it to stay informed about the most recent things relevant to their lives.
