Since Google announced that they will be getting rid of Google RSS Reader, I have read so many articles where bloggers and business owners are wondering what will their subscribers use as an alternative to stay connected with them once Google officially disables the reader. For me personally I have never put a lot of emphasis on convincing readers who come to my website to subscribe to my RSS reader. Don’t get me wrong, I have provided the call to action as an option but my emphasis has solely been on getting subscribers on my email list. Not subscribing to my RSS reader. I have never been a fan of someone having total control of something that I own, and for me my website or blog is my asset, I should have control on my list subscribers not Google.
Why are List Subscribers important?
List subscribers are an important part of the list building process when you decide to create a website or blog. Bloggers and business owners who have websites do not understand that list building is a large part of creating an online asset. I am a firm advocate of telling individuals that there is a big difference in a visitor and a website subscriber. A website subscribers will become an asset to a blogger or business owner, a website visitors is just that a “visitor”, they are not part of the asset building process. If you are serious about monetizing your online activity on your blog or website, you need to be growing your list so that your website can become profitable.
