  1. This looks interesting, I will admit I have been lazy when it comes to list building and what I’ve done so far while I have gotten some results, I am always open to trying something else.

    1. You should give PushEngage a try!!
      Every single user we bring to our website is crucial, and nothing could be better than keep them re-engaging with your content!!
      It does have an impact on Google rankings as well as Alexa rank.

  2. I have not built a single listing for my blog, though am on blogger but this seems a certain need for every blogger out there, as your audience building is always good for that nice and lovely following, you did justice to this so nicely. Thanks for this read.

  3. List building is such a crucial issue, and it’s always helpful to hear of subscription options that get more engagement. I hadn’t heard of PushEngage so thanks for the heads up.

    Signing up right now!!

  4. I’m so glad you did a post on this because I’ve been wondering it about it. I subscribed to push notifications from one site and I like the little fly in on the side of my computer. Most times I do click to visit that site, so it certainly does what it’s meant to do. Thank you!

  5. That’s cool! I usually hate these things when I am on websites, so I never considered using it until I read this.
    Great post 🙂
    Signing up for the free trial!!

  6. I didn’t even think about this being an option! I have been struggling to build any type of lists, so PushEngage is awesome, Thanks for sharing!
