Mobile Squeeze Page Opt-ins

by Brian Mullis 7 replies
I’m in the process of working on a project where I am targeting mobile users only. I’m setting up multiple squeeze pages. What are the current best practices as far as how they opt-in? Just a regular squeeze page with an opt-in form? 2 step opt-in?

I’m still searching and also found a solution where there is a very prominent call to action button. When the visitor clicks it, the email client on their phone or tablet opens up pre-populated. They just have to click “send” to opt-in to your list.

I’m going to test all of this myself but overall, what have you found that works the best?

    Thats a great idea but, I think you better create a responsive squeeze page so then your visitors can open your page even they're using desktop

    There is a plugin out that will allow people to optin just by pushing a button without having to type in their email address. That worked really well. But keep in mind MOST mobile traffic is now on Ipads and the like...so may no be as big of a deal as it was a few years ago

      Thanks. Do you happen to have a link to that plugin? I found a few solutions like you described but they are no longer being sold.

    You don't need a plugin.

    The way it works is totally old school. Just not many are old school.

    All you are doing is using a mailto link for your call to action object and including the subject and body.


    Try this...

    <a href="mailto:yourusername@domain.com?subject=This% 20is%20Your%20Subject%20Line&amp;body=This%20is%20 What%20Will%20be%20in%20the%20Message%20Body%2E" target="_blank">Your Call To Action</a>

    %20 is a space
    %2E is a period

    Use the below for all non alphabetical /numeric characters. At least I think that is the proper way to do for subject / body.

    https://www.w3schools.com/tags/ref_urlencode.asp

    Remember it is all one string with no spaces.

    If you want more than a single line in the message, use %0D%0A to create line breaks.

    You might want to add a last line and tell the user to send the message to opt-in ???

    NOTE: rel="nofollow" was automatically added by WF (do not use)

    I'm a little rusty so test.
