incentive to subscribe
« on: April 07, 2012, 09:09:38 AM »
I had an idea to give incentive to subscribe to my email list and I want to know not only your opinion but how you think I can implement it. On my site I post a funny video game picture everyday and I want to do an extra picture a day for subscribers. I would promote it in every normal picture and podcast I do.

Will this work?
  • Post an extra picture.
  • Set the post to private
  • will it send an email out to my subscribers saying there is a new picture or not (because its private)
  • Do I need to make a new email sign up list?

I'm not sure if I'm tracking your goal. If I do understand correctly, you're doing a ton of extra work.

If you want to give extra content to email subscribers, all you have to do is email them.

I'm trying to get people to sign up and a reward for them signing up is getting more content

Gotcha.

Personally, I'm lazy. And that sounds complicated.

I wouldn't try to give out an extra post/image per day.

I'd take some of my most popular items, add some subscriber only items, and make an ebook. Add a download link to the thanks-for-signing-up page and you're in business. You can update it or replace it as you see fit.
