More subscription options for more subscribers

Thanks to the suggestion by James, I’m using iFeedReaders to make subscribing to All Narfed Up easier. There’s so many online feed readers that it’s hard to have a link for each one.

Add to Any was okay, but I think iFeedReaders simply looks and feels more comfortable. I also implemented the iFeedReaders social bookmark link creator, using the WordPress plugin, for each individual post. I figure that if you like one of these posts, I should take the small extra step to make it easier for you to bookmark or Digg it. *cough*

Lastly, since iFeedReaders links to FeedBlitz for people who still prefer email newsletters, it’s only logical since every little bit helps. I’ve signed up with them and setup the code here as well.

If you’ve got a blog, you need to look into these two services to help expand your audience that much more.

iFeedReaders is in beta mode, but is totally free (and looks really good). FeedBlitz is free, but there’s premium services, too.

Can I customize the look and feel of the emails? I want my logo in the mail and not FeedBlitz orange. – Yes. The “Pro” premium service lets you customize the look of your emails and the subscriber sign up landing page. It costs USD $4.95 per feed per month. Publishers with multiple feeds can sign up for the flat-fee “Pro Plus” service which lets you customize as many feeds as you like for USD $24.95 per month.

  1. You are right on the money about making subscription easier. An additional resource is Feedpass. In addition to providing resources for subscribing, Feedpass does an excellent job of guiding novice users through the process while still making it easy for experts. It’s also a perfect way to create a more easy to use URL for subscribing to your blog. You end up with a URL that reads http://www.feedpass.com/%5Binsertnamehere%5D. It’s similar to Feedburner but Feedpass doesn’t take over control of your actual feed. In addition, you can share in AdSense revenue with Feedpass. http://www.feedpass.com
