How Add Premium Email Subscription Box Below Blogger's Post

Email Subscription Box


When you visit some websites, you might have noticed how the author is requesting you to subscribe via email address either by the mechanism of popping up or through sidebar widget or even below posts widget.

Ever wonder, why they are adding the same widget again and again? A simple answer: To increase their email subscription count. In this new era, email marketing is a good way to promote your content to keen readers. Let's take everything step by step.

So, what is an email subscription box widget?

An email subscription box widget is a plugin that allows readers to subscribe to a website for latest contents via their email addresses. If that website publishes new content, the subscribed readers receive a notification about it along with the full detailed article (in most cases, of course)

Blogger and WordPress have their default email service. Moreover, you can use online email service providers like MailChimp, MailGet, Constant Contact, Aweber, Convertkit and so on. We won't go through them but stick with the default email service. For this article, we will primarily focus on the blogger. 

Blogger.com provides a service named "FeedBurner" that delivers content to all subscribed readers of a blogger blog. Of course, you need to enable email subscription option from its layout.

Once enabled, you can add a code that displays an email subscription box on the sidebar or below posts. However, the available email box is obsolete and does not match with most of the blogger designs.
The solution to this is simple: We will re-customize the email a subscription box with pure CSS and give it a premium look.

Excited? I'm too!

Why to add an email subscription box in the blogger blog?
The primary purpose of adding an email subscription box to a website is to allow readers to subscribe to content.

Readers, who love reading your contents, are always keen to know more about your blog and allowing them to use their email address for receiving daily fresh contents can play a great role in developing audiences.

Moreover, it adds value to your design. Having an email subscription box in a blog can make the layout clean and professional, and also it drives positive feelings to readers, as they feel the blog is caring for them. Having a sweet message such as "We don't spam, Promise!" can add extra support. A piece of good news, we have attempted to add every minute detail to our premium subscription plugin.

 &lt;div class='white-border'&gt;  
 &lt;div class='subscribe-box-sbm-wrap'&gt;

 &lt;input id='subbox' name='email' onblur='if ( this.value == &amp;apos;&amp;apos; ) { this.value = &amp;apos;Enter your email address...&amp;apos; } ' onfocus=' if ( this.value == &amp;apos;Enter your email address...&amp;apos;) { this.value = &amp;apos;&amp;apos; }' type='email' value='Enter your email address...'/&gt;&lt;input class='subbutton' type='submit' value='Subscribe'/&gt;  
 &lt;input name='uri' type='hidden' value='twistblogg'/&gt;  
 &lt;input name='loc' type='hidden' value='en_US'/&gt;  
 &lt;div class='clear'/&gt;  
 &lt;p style='font-size:10px;'&gt;CHECK YOUR INBOX AND COMPLETE YOUR SUBSCRIPTION!&lt;/p&gt;  
 &lt;/form&gt;  
 &lt;/div&gt;  
 &lt;/div&gt;  
 &lt;/div&gt;  


Change twistblogg with your Feedburner ID


Extra information: Adding rel="noopener noreferrer" prevents your website bandwidth from getting used by others. Also, it disallows to open any portal with your address.

Done. Quite simple, right? You have successfully added a premium email subscription box below the blogger's posts. In case, the widget is not working or not fitting properly, leave a comment and I'll endeavor to assist you. Happy Blogging.
