In an article by Robert van Tongeren published recently , the author provides some guidelines on how to achieve 1000 new e-mail subscribers in 30 days. We ask, can it be done?

OK, he does start with a disclaimer of sorts, which does point out that not everyone will pull this off in 30 days, especially if they have no prior connections. However, it does depend on some variables such as:

⦁ The time you have to work on this
⦁ The commitment you have to working hard
⦁ The skills and/or talent you already possess
⦁ The popularity of your blog-topic
⦁ The experience or expertise you have on that topic
⦁ The money you have to invest.

If you lack in any of these areas, you can make up for it with the others (e.g. Lack of money can be made up for with time, and vice versa). But these are all factors that influence your ability to get to 1000 subscribers in such a short period. His estimation is that you'll have to work hard for about 6-8 hours each of the 30 days to get to 1000 this quickly. If you can't, these strategies will still work but you'll just reach that milestone a bit later.

OK, so read the article, it's interesting and well written, but just to give you a summary, here are the main points. To get subscribers, you need traffic, clearly to get 1000 subscribers in 30 days, you will need a lot of traffic in little time. More specifically, he goes on to explain that to get the result you're after, you should target the following two traffic sources: Paid traffic and endorsed traffic.

1. Paid Traffic - As the name suggests, this is traffic that you pay for. By investing some money, you can get in front of your audience much more quickly than if you have to build your audience from scratch. For instance, with Adwords, you can get the top spot in Google without putting the time into SEO. With Facebook Ads, you can get in front of people who expressed an interest in your topic, without putting time into building a social media following. Again, this is about getting subscribers fast.

The downside to Adwords is that the cost per click (CPC) can be substantial, especially if you're covering a popular topic. And setup and management can be quite time-consuming. Facebook ads on the other hand are quite easy to set up, and the CPC is usually much lower. And since you want to consume as little time -- and as little money, I'm guessing -- as possible, we'll be focusing on FB in this article.

2. Endorsed Traffic - You get endorsed traffic through social proof - by an A-list influencer endorsing you. This happens in one of two ways:

⦁ A-listers share your content on their blogs or social media accounts
⦁ You write for an A-lister's publication.

In either of these cases, the A-lister is lending you credibility. Their reputation and credibility rubs off on you. They wouldn't share content from someone they can't get behind, after all. Now, getting A-listers to share your content on their blogs and social media usually takes some relationship building.

The article goes on to explain how you can write guest posts for A-list blogs that get results.

So, having explained which sources of traffic to focus on, the article goes on to look at six strategies:
