Can I offer a free subscription to collect email addresses?

One of the benefits of getting readers to register this way is that you can capture their email addresses. Once you have built a sizeable list you can begin selling advertisements as part of your subscriber emails. Make sure to always respect your readers and not spam them. You must also comply with data protection laws: in the UK see http://www.ico.gov.uk/ and in the US see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Information_privacy#United_States.
Subscriptions are coming soon to Publisha.
Many Publisha users have successfully integrated Feedburner, a Google service, which allows readers to give their email addresses and receive a daily update from your site on days when you have posted new articles.
