    Hey guys,
    I have a blog in a niche that doesn't do that well with adsense. So i was wondering what i could to capture subscribers. What would be the best option?

    1. opt-in pop up
    2. opt-in subscription box in menu box.
    3. Maybe create a banner and send it to a landing page to catch the opt-in email

    I would appreciate any advice. I have never this before. Thanks guys.

    Optin pop up should be most effective i guess.
    make it attractive enough and yes - have a close button clearly demarcated, so that you do not annoy your visitors

    give the visitors a reason to subscribe and add some incentive - say a free e-book for example and add a nice image to it

    Hi,
    guys thanks for the replies and the advice. I have got an ebook written to offer them. I am going to try the pop up route and see how it goes.
