But half of the people that sign up to my list don't click the confirm subscription (double optin) link in the email. So I'm thinking that maybe I shouldn't distract them with an offer on the thank you page. And instead just tell them to click the link in the email to confirm.
Has anybody else noticed that some people don't get around to confirming their subscription when you have an affiliate sales video on your thank you page? I'm thanking that the sales videos distracts them and they don't end up getting around to confirming their subscription.
Or is it normal for about half the people that sign up originally to not confirm their subscription?
I know it's not my confirmation email because it is now very well written and reminds them of my business name and the name of the free ebook that they get when they confirm their subscription which they saw on the landing page. I also mention that I got a couple of bonus for them for signing up.
