How we got subscribers through our App - how do you get your subscribers?

We wanted to share stats from our latest design strategy with the community - how we got more subscribers following us.

With this design we've been pulling in new e-mail subscribers daily. Last month we had 137 organic signups. This is very important for small devs like us... Allowing us to expand our influence and communicate directly with customers.

How do you get e-mail subscribers for your indie games? Please share below.

Cheers,
Brian

Excellent stats, thanks for the post.

But I heard MailChimp is quite expensive. Have you tried any other alternatives before choosing it?

Well we haven't reached the number of subs that require us to start paying... We'll cross that bridge when we get to it. We haven't tried any other alternatives but I really like the MailChimp design.

Cheers!
