Want to attract more subscribers to your E-zine?
By Michelle Toole
Do you have a great e-zine but you are not sure how to attract more subscribers?
Did you know that you could list your e-zine in a directory? Yup, the internet has e-zine directories, who knew? By putting in a bit of time and taking a few extra steps and posting your e-zine to the directories you will have subscribers flocking to your doorstep in no time.
But first things first, let’s make sure you have met all the basic requirements before you start announcing yourself to the world and submitting your e-zine to all those directories. First make sure you have a solid newsletter, one that you have spent sometime working out the kinks. Make sure you deliver your e-zine regularly and, finally, make sure you have good reader feedback.
Now you are ready for the next step…….
There are free resources where everybody and everyone can list their e-zines for nothing. That’s right, for nothing, for free! Here are the freebies:
You can also do a simple Google search for free e-zine directories….that should keep you busy for quite sometime.
But you may not wish to take the time to submit your e-zine to all the most popular directories. If that is a bit time consuming for you or tedious, you can use one of the automated ezine submission programs like EzineAnnouncer. With over 700 newsletter-related sources for you to investigate, EzineAnnouncer can be a newsletter publisher’s indispensable friend!
Of course you can always do it manually and save a few bucks.
Once you submit your e-zine to the directories you will find that there is a pleasant bonus. Not only will you build your e-publication, you will also build more traffic to your site (if you provide a link from your subscription page to your home page). On top of that, you will also generate some all-important link popularity which is always a good thing!
Should you consider e-zine directories? It depends.
If your e-zine is about a popular topic which is likely to generate many keyword searches, and you’ve listed your site properly (with a compelling description), there’s no reason why these directories shouldn’t bring a constant trickle of subscribers to your newsletter.
But if your newsletter is about a highly specific niche topic, your major concern will be listing in directories that receive enough traffic to generate keyword searches for that topic. It’s ideal if you can find a directory dedicated to a category that includes your theme.
All in all, if you can hit the major e-zine directories in an hour or so, it’s not a bad way to spend your time. Just be sure to do your homework. Write a good quality e-zine description and list your e-zine in the appropriate category. Learn how to submit properly and read all of the instructions for each site or you may find all your hard work in vain.
Any way you want to slice it, submitting your newsletter to e-zine directories is a win-win situation.
