Facebook users can limit the privacy of their posts and only public ones can be seen by subscribers while every posts are public for Facebook page.
Here I will offer you 6 tips that could help leverage your Facebook subscribers number.

This may be the first thing you have to do. People can subscribe to you when you allow them to do so unless they can’t find subscribe button on your timeline profile.
To allow people to subscribe, please go to Account Setting > Subscriber > check Allow Subscribers
and don’t forget to choose Public (including subscribers) for Subscriber comments.
In the Subscribe Setting, you can set your username and you’ll have your own short url with your username after www.facebook.com. For example, I set my username as techcyclo and I would have www.facebook.com/techcyclo as my url.
Before you leave the setting please review your public timeline by just clicking Want to know what subscribers can see? View your public timeline. This option will help you see how your Facebook subscribers will see your timeline.
2. Be active on Facebook

Being active here means having regular status updates, changing profile picture or profile cover often, comment on or like other’s posts… The more you interact with your friends the more your profile will appear on your friends and friends of friends news feed and also appear in subscribe suggestion list. You’ll see the number of your Facebook subscribers rise from time to time. You can’t have hundreds of Facebook subscribers if you haven’t logged in your Facebook account for weeks or months unless you are a famous pop star.
