Two months ago we launched a feature that allows your readers to subscribe via email to be alerted whenever you have a new article accepted.
While this feature hasn’t taken off like a rocket ship, we are now managing 2,957 permission-based email subscribers (86% growth over October 2008) on behalf of 2,273 unique expert authors.
The top member has 32 subscribers, the 2nd and 3rd have 20 subscribers each and so forth.
Obviously no one is going to fall over in their chair and be blown away with this feature today; But a year from now I believe the organic growth alone will make this feature become important enough that you’ll notice it… Especially older members – will be more rewarded than newer members due to having “face time” to attract more email subscribers.
Ideally, I’d like us to be able to attract 7,000-12,000 double opt-in email subscribers for EVERY single EzineArticles expert author, but know this dream won’t happen overnight.
