Album Daily has officially reached 250 subscribers! This may seem like a small number to many, but I am very proud of the progress that I have made in the two short months since launching. As this is my first venture, I've learned a ton, and am excited to see where I can take this.
Now, enough celebrating, how can I get to my next milestone, 500 subscribers?
Referrals - Last week, I integrated a referral program from a fellow indie maker, Sparkloop. Hopefully this can catch some steam, and drive adoption, while also helping them iron out their product.
Quality Content - In order to ensure that users will want to refer, and stay with Album Daily, I need to keep creating quality content. However, I need visibility into how the users like the albums. So, I need to add a Nero rating (thumbs up/down) to the end of every email, to see if users like that specific album. Open and click rates are great, but they don't tell me how the user liked the album.
Cross Promotions - I have been reaching out to other indie makers, offering a sponsorship in Album Daily, in exchange for promotion via their channels. So far, I have had pretty good success with this, and want to keep providing value to my partners to help our audiences grow together.
Social Media - I need to take some time to create some quality graphics to post to the Album Daily social media channels to drive conversions from followers -> subscribers.
Thanks for reading, if you have any other ideas, please let me know!
