New Article Email Alert Stats

Permission-based new article email alert subscribers grew to 64,533 members (5.7% growth over previous month) and we delivered 1.2 million email alerts last month to help drive targeted traffic to your articles. Who else would do that for ya? No one else! :-)

For the first time in quite a while we had a few lists dip into negative growth (meaning they declined in membership) with Rugby -6%, Auto-Racing -4%, and Copywriting -2%.

One thing that continues to amaze me is that our Home-Improvement new article email alerts continue to grow at 20-30% PER MONTH. Real Estate general and Real Estate:FSBO are the only other two lists with 30% and 29% growth rates over the previous month. Probably no surprise that Mortgage-Refinance was up 23% as it’s from the same group of themed interests.



Hi Chris!

Why don’t you show us a list with each category’s progress in subscriptions?

I’ve considered that and have decided that it’s confidential data.

Never mind, you must have your reasons.

It’s nice enough to see that many people subscribe and receive our articles regularly!

That’s a lot subscribers. Got me thinking … if this were my list, I’d promote my article writing “how to” books.

Ever think about monetizing this?

We feel that we are monetizing the lists already by the very fact that they drive targeted traffic back to the site.

Each list is only 50 to 500 members, so until each list itself gets over 10k members, it’s not significant enough to monetize separately.

Our goal this year is to end with 100k subscribers, and it appears we’re not on track to reach that goal…so we’ll be looking at what has to change to meet that metric.
