  • Pop-ups are not annoying always– Create pop-ups with an opt-in form on your website. A missed-time pop-up might back fire, affecting the readability or forcing the reader to exit the website. Which, you would never want to!
  • Quick subscription form on homepage could do the trick – Having a quick newsletter subscription form on homepage isn’t a bad option. Homepage is one of the pages, which gets the maximum traffic. So why not take the advantage of the visitors subscribe for emails.
