Let me guess.
You signed up for Mailchimp, AWeber, or Constant Contact and created an opt-in form to snag yourself some new subscribers for your blog.
Maybe you even went the extra mile and created a juicy opt-in offer to tempt them to hand over their precious email addresses.
Then you posted it on your sidebar and in your footer, and maybe you were smart enough to throw up a feature box too.
And now you can’t figure out why the subscribers aren’t rolling in.
Every morning you anxiously check your email dashboard, hoping that today will be the day you finally see a ton of new signups.
But every morning is a letdown. Just one or two new subscribers (and let’s be honest — it’s just one if you don’t count your mom).
The truth is, these tactics used to work wonderfully — but they don’t any more.
Your readers have evolved, and your blog needs to adapt.
