To start increasing the bond between you and your readers you must turn your readers into subscribers. Once you have gained subscribers you will be able to engage with them through notifications. The notifications will make sure your subscribers know when you released a new edition.
The only way for your readers to subscribe is through your subscribe page. The subscribe page can be accessed through your editions. Your edition can contain two ways of accessing the subscribe page.
- Subscribe action on area
- Subscribe link in navigation
Once a reader uses one of these actions they will be directed to the subscribe page. By default it looks like the following:
