On this week’s episode we’re going to look at how to craft a high-converting sign-up page for your email newsletter. You’re going to hear tips from conversion experts as well as a Hit Publish Proof segment from someone whose sign-up page converts 15-20 new sign-ups every day.
For most small to medium online businesses, adding around 100 new people every week into an audience you have direct access to would be valuable. So let’s not hang about shall we?
In this episode we’re asking: What do you promise or talk about so your prospect things ‘yes – I need to be on this list’? Because face it, very few of us wake up wanting to be on a list, but most of us are willing and happy to hand over our emails if we’re getting something great in return.
