This is somewhat piggy-backing off my other discussion about losing some subscribers. And I guess this is a two-fold questions.
First of all, would you say you prefer to have visitors Subscribing vs Following or are both equally important? We can see, along with companies we're trying to work with, how many people are following us. That I know of, there's no way for anyone but us to know how many subscribers we have.
My subscriber numbers are really low and up to this point I haven't cared about that number. I'm part of the Friends Following Friends (yes I'm a follower) and my number of Follwers grows every day. Those are what I'm going for at this point.
Secondly, do you put both options as extras when you are doing a giveaway. At this point I don't ask for subscribers. If I'm like others, my inbox is so full right now, the last thing I'd want is for ONE MORE EMAIL. Maybe that's just me.
What are your preferences? Thanks!!
