Other side, some other website like Easywpseoplugin.com, where they directly offer product as incentive. This method also work.
Here I listed only three type incentives that offers by some big bloggers. In the web you may find these types offers thousand times. Offering incentives is the most used method in bloggers.
Showing numbers of subscribers to attract new subscribers – If your blog have thousands of subscriber you don’t need to promote anything as incentive. Just show how many people are with you, As Harsh Agrawal done in shoutmeloud. This method also works because after seeing huge number of subscribers readers will think there must be something good in your feed. But this method conversion rate much lower than incentive method.

Placing subscription box also play a vital role for any blog. Here I point out some places, which ones bring more subscribers.
In Sidebar – Sidebar is the most usual palace where almost every blogging add their email subscriber form to bring more subscribers.
Below the post – If your content is great, than your reader should love to subscribe your blog after reading your post. So having a subscriber box after post is always helpful.
Use sticky bar – Add sticky bar above header of the blog. You can do this using hellobar plug-in.
Use Pop-Up – colorful Pop-up may bring high number f subscribers. While creating popup check its appearing time and when to show this. Otherwise too many popup can ruin your blog traffic.
Add a Big subscriber box – In front page just after head add a big subscription box with some spicy offer. This is the best position to get maximum conversation.
Add subscription box into pages – Add your blog subscription box into your blog about me page.
Still many other place like footer, inside blog post sometime increase conversion rate. I can’t tell that places are not good; sometimes that places work finer than regular places. But above positions are the best to get highest conversion.
Promote– Promote that product that you give your blog subscriber as incentive. For promotion you can write a blog post about that, or you can directly promote your product with your friends and co-workers on social networking site.
Design – Sometimes good content also ignored by readers because of bad design. First of all give your blog a professional looking design. Everything depends on your blog first impression, so notice on your blog landing page. For customize email subscription form you can check this 12 plug-ins that I use.
Arrange a Giveaways contest – Arrange a giveaway contest on your blog and add a checklist that everyone should subscribe my blog in order to participate this word. This method can give at a time huge number of subscriber.
