How to get your first 100 email subscribers really quickly?

get your 100 email subscribers

#1. Guest blogging is the surest way

Guest blogging is NOT dead. It is still one of the fastest ways to grow your blog audience from scratch. But you need to do it right to get massive results.

Whenever I feel hopeless to continue blogging, I write guest posts. That’s the simplest way to get back in the game. If you are wondering how to use guest posts to grow your lists, I’ve some tips for you.

 How to write guest posts that can get you email subscribers?

  • Make a list of all the blogs to write guest posts: First off, make a list of all the targeted blogs in your industry. You can use simple search terms like “topic + guest post” to find relevant blogs in your industry. For instance, if your blog is related to Yoga, you can find targeted blogs by using search terms like “yoga + guest post” or “yoga + write guest posts” etc.
  • Come up with the topic ideas: Use Quora or Buzzsumo to come up with topic ideas for your guest posts. Also make sure to research the blogs where you want to write guest posts. Find out their top posts, analyze them carefully and come up with at least 3 post ideas and pick the best one among them. Start writing around it.
  • Create compelling headlines: 8 out 10 people read headlines. Online readers are extremely lazy. So make sure you are spending quality time in creating powerful headlines that catch your audience’s attention really quickly. You can use tools like Portent (free) to come up with tons of great blog post headlines.
  • Use a solid call to action: Last but not least, make sure to include a call to action from your guest posts. Give reasons for people to subscribe to your sites. Ask them to grab your freebies. Instead of linking to your homepage, link to your incentives page so they can easily download your stuff by giving their emails.
  • Use landing pages: If you want to get the most out of your guest posts, use landing pages. Use your author bio links and send your visitors to your landing pages to collect emails.

That’s how you can use guest posts to get your first 100 or 500 email subscribers.

#2. Find your top 10 posts and do this thing

Do you know what are the top 10 posts that are sending you the most traffic? If not, go to Google analytics and figure out your top 10 high traffic posts.


Usually 80% of your whole traffic comes from your top 10 posts. If you use them correctly, you can easily get your first 100 or 500 subscribers.

Step 1: Find your top 10 posts using Google analytics

Go to Google analytics and find out your top 10 pages that are bringing you the most traffic from search engines.

Once you are done with it, follow the next step.

Step 2: Use content upgrades

A content upgrade is an extension of your blog posts. Once you find your top 10 posts, use a content upgrade around it by offering a checklist, video, worksheet or audio file which is relevant to that post.

Ask people to enter their email address to collect that content upgrade. If they are really interested in your stuff, they will surely subscribe to you!

If you are wondering how a content upgrade looks like, here you go.


#3. Create an irresistible lead magnet

If I had to start from scratch, I’d start off with a lead magnet. Why? A powerful lead magnet helps you quickly turn your website visitors into email subscribers.

In online, people love freebies. They usually don’t give their emails for FREE. This is why you need to create freebies or lead magnets such as free eBooks, cheat sheets, guides, videos, plugins etc.

And if you are wondering how to create a powerful lead magnet to quickly grow your email list, here are few rock solid tips for you.

  • To create an irresistible lead magnet (it can be anything from eBook to video to Infographics), make a list of top 10 blogs in your industry. Find out what kinds of lead magnets they are offering. Then, make a list of 1 to 3 topics that you can use to create a lead magnet for your blog audience.
  • Create an e-guide and offer it for free. For instance, you can write a book on “How I drove massive traffic to my blog” Ask for signup form to get this free ebook pdf. Always work on your niche topic while writing books because you need to target specific audience to grow your email list.
  • Occasionally, give special offers and bonus for free in addition to the e-guides.
  • One of the amazing ways to generate lead magnets is conducting surveys or quizzes. By doing so, you not only increasing your email list but also knowing what your customer is looking for and who is your ideal customer.
  • Offer free courses. For instance, free course on “Tips to double traffic in 30 days”plus an amazing secret bonus valued at $50.
  • The one powerful lead magnet is offering free webinars. It helps in getting 100 or 500 email subscribers.
  • We know how people craves for discounts. If your industry is e-commerce then offer discounts on new arrivals. Giving discounts can bring you massive email subscribers.


Building an email list and making money from it is not a rocket science.

Most people think that they need a MASSIVE email list of subscribers to start making money but it’s NOT true. In fact, you can start making money even with your first 100 email subscribers.

How Can You Start Blogging for Free?




Blogging requires:

  • financial investment; domain and hosting at a minimum
  • time investment
  • energy investment

Blogging is a skill. You invest money to begin developing the skill effectively. Add time and energy through your blogging work and you lay the foundation for a successful blogging career.

You cannot start blogging for free because without financial investment you are not really blogging.

Imagine starting a blog on a free platform.

How can you ever impress people if you fear investing $7 a month on hosting and $14 on a domain?

People see the free platform, believe you to be an amateur, you lose your credibility as potential readers do not trust you, and folks exit your blog.

Investing Money to Make Money

Observe my blog:

Blogging From Paradise

I invested thousands of dollars in my blog over the years and made a lot more money than thousands of dollars.

I bought my domain and hosting 10 years ago as an investment in freedom and greater profits.

Fast forward a decade; I have circled the globe for 8 years, living in places like Fiji, Bali and Costa Rica. The thousands of dollars I invested allowed me to:

  • gain reader trust
  • convey a professional brand image
  • be seen as one of the top bloggers on earth
  • increase blog traffic
  • increase eBook sales, course sales and audio book sales
  • be featured on world famous sites
  • move higher in blogging circles

Imagine if I began blogging for free. Would Fox News want to interview a blogger using a free blogging platform? No. Of course Fox News seeks out renowned leaders and every blogging leader invests money in blogging to do blogging right.

Free Platforms Look Cheap and Unprofessional

Free blogging platforms look terrible.

Can you ever gain reader trust if your blog looks terrible?

Observe the long, wordy, non-branded domain name, including the free hosting company. Imagine if was Would you trust CNN if the corporation used a free blogging platform? No.

This is from my trip to Turkey.

Imagine if was Would you trust the content? No.

Even if you intend to never profit through your blog you better buy your domain and hosting because few if any readers trust bloggers on free platforms.

How to Begin a Blog the Right Way

Invest money in:

Invest money in your success.

Begin blogging the right way to cut years off of:

  • your learning curve
  • your success curve

Money circulates; invest money today and it flows back to you multiplied exponentially.

Losing or spending money is impossible in a Universe of abundance.

Develop this prosperity consciousness to begin blogging from an abundant, successful, positive energy.

Develop a Money Consciousness to Make Money with Your Blog

The old saying goes; it takes money to make money.

I take it one step further; it takes a money consciousness to make money.

A high number of bloggers invest money in their blog but struggle to make money. Said bloggers believe they spent or lost money on their blog, which is not true.

Develop a money consciousness.  It takes a money consciousness to make money with your blog, meaning you need believe money circulates, as you release money and it returns to you multiplied in awesome fashion.

I discovered 2 unknown, unexpected income streams recently, both online. Why? I circulate money. I see any investment in my blog, in bills or in anything, flowing back to me multiplied.

Develop this positive, abundant mindset.

Invest money in your blog from day 1.

Begin blogging the right way.

How to Build Brand Authenticity Using Customer Generated Content




Creating quality content is the best thing someone can ever do for their company. When done right, it generates a lot of traffic towards the website thus giving a high likelihood of converting the followers into leads. Unfortunately, quality content is expensive and can use up a lot of money, time, and very exhaustive.

Fortunately for us, there is another way to get quality content without having to go through all this hustle. When you make use of this strategy, it will turn out to be more powerful and accurate than other cumbersome methods. This solution is known as User Generated Content (UGC) since it is one of the simplest way to get results without getting tired.

What is the significance of UGC?

The moment you make use of content generated by customers, you automatically create trust with other customers. This is because more than 80% of consumers find content generated by their fellow customers to be convincing and true than what the brands can write about themselves. The assumption is that no one will ever write negatives about themselves unless third parties take over.

UGC is the most authentic type of content as 98% of it is true since customers have no interests in the customers creating profits. If something is bad, they will write it as it is. The reverse is also true. It is therefore recommendable to spend more time curating on the content written by consumers rather than the company itself. You can also use a tool like to better create content for your audience and to also rank higher in Google for multiple keywords and search phrases.

The other advantage of UGC is the ability to track all the conversations and mentions. This mostly helps by finding out what the customers think about your services and products. In case of any problem, you can address the same issue. You are allowed to comment on the same wall towards their plights.

The other advantage is to help a company in saving time meant to write content. This time can be allocated to other issues that help in accumulating profits for the business.

Ways to Build an Effective UCG Marketing Strategy

1 – Choose your platform wisely

You do not just create a CGC in any area. The first thing is to ensure that you have a good number of active followers in online platforms. In addition to this, remember that each platform works differently; Facebook users are known for sharing content whereas Instagram is more of visuals. When you ask people for content, remember to be specific with what you want since a lot of us are ready to talk about anything we wish.

2 – Collect independent customer reviews

Customers’ reviews are very vital to any business as they act as personal recommendations to other people who are yet to try your brand. In fact, a lot of people prefer to read a number of reviews before making a conclusion on whether to buy or not. If someone comes across two or more negative comments, a good number will pull away from your page. Remember that savvy customers will always spot fake reviews hence the more reason to stick to authentic customers. The only way to win their hearts is by offering what you promised in the first place.

3 – Offer rewards

There is nothing as encouraging as being rewarded for doing something. Offering rewards attracts a lot of people towards your page as everyone is eager to get something. Don’t try too hard by getting expensive gifts. You can promise that a winner will have their tweets retweeted or you feature their article or business on your page. Not only will they feel happy that they are part of your success but will also attract new users to subscribe.

Neil Patel is often preaching about the process of offering rewards and getting users to submit an email address on your site — which you can then follow up with afterwards. You can read more on Neil and his most recent resources in this article from

4 – Support a charity event

You need to remind your customers that your brand is not after making profits but rather in helping the community in different events such as acts of charity. Let people know that you have a greater vision for them too.

Online platforms can either break or boost your business. This is because a lot of people have turned to recommendation on social media by strangers or friends. If you want better reviews, ensure that your products are quality and services are up to standard.

User Generation Content is the Way to Go!

With more than a billion active websites and blogs on the internet today, content overload is happening daily. The same is true for brands and bloggers that are struggling to create original content on their own.

The better option is to build a platform or content creation and marketing plan that relies on content being created from other users. After all, how much content has Facebook or Instagram ever made… and look at how huge and massive their brands are!
