Newbie question on Optin form

11 replies
I have a blog on beauty niche with about 10 pages on different but related topics on beauty. I intend to put in an optin form on each page of the website. Can I created the optin form in different topics peculiar to each page of my website?

    Yes can, in that case, you need to integrate your optin form in your post. 10 optin forms each in different post.

    That sounds very exhausting though. You have a 10-page site and you want to add 10 different optin form, each with their own autoresponder sequences?

    It might be a good idea to build a list on only one closely related topic first. When you have some subscribers and you want to write on another topic, you could still email them about your new topic, some will probably be interested, and may even join the list for the other topic.

    Just my 2 cents...

    This sounds like the biggest headache.

    Why can't you use a general optin form // lead magnet?

    If you want to have unique form for different posts/page/categories, I highly recommend you look into Thrive Leads. They have some really cool features and probably the best in the industry as of now, in my opinion.

      Before you go to all that trouble, get some stats. Figure out which pages have the most traction - most visitors, shares, likes, whatever your goal is. Then start by creating one lead magnet that extends the topic of that page. Offer it as a free download, with an opt-in.

      When you have that dialed in, repeat with the next most popular page.

      I'd continue adding content, then if a particular page/post caught on, repeat the process.

      Have a general lead magnet and opt-in for everything else.

    Yes you can. But be prepared to have an extensive email marketing funnel system that you have to setup. How many emails messages per opt-in form do you intend on having?

    I would group these 10 pages in 2 or 3 parts and create an optin form for each group. Then you can put these 10 optins again on your 10 pages accordingly, if that is a must!
    But that should not be a must in my opinion. Maybe you have to consider narrowing down the scope of your blog a little bit and focusing on one or two subniches of beauty.

    I agree with all the replies above. But, there is something that holds me back from completely agreeing with them. Being bloggers or owners of a business, we all have that one thought in mind, i.e. "Attract many readers" or "Gain maximum Customers". But, is this all we need to think about? Being in the marketing field for quite some time, I have observed that paying attention to the users needs is something that will help you attract a larger audience.

    Moving on to Optin Forms:
    Optins are a great way to engage users with something that you want them to do. That may be as simple as Preparing an email list with each user entering theirs in the Optin form that appears, or offering them an ebook or something they are looking out for. This will give you an idea of what they want, and how can you satisfy their needs.

    As you said, you have a blog with 10 pages and you wish to add Optin Forms in it, I would suggest you to jot down your goals. Whether you wish to offer your readers with something more through downloads, whether you want to collect their email ids so that you can inform them about your next post or even get in touch with them to know what most of them are looking out for. Goals can be set for the entire blog, or you can create a set of goals for each post. But, do you really think having 10 Optin forms flash over a single post would help? This might instead annoy readers. I would therefore suggest you to first make note of the purpose of having Optin Forms, Sort them and select the most essential ones, and then go ahead creating them.

    My advise to you would be to create a general opt-in forum. As you have mentioned, although these pages are of different topics, but they still fall under the common theme of beauty.

    Maintaining a good follow up with 10 different opt in lists would be a major headache. From my experience, having quality follow up has shown to have much better results than quantity.

      Hi LesterRussell,

      I agree with your point about maintaining a good follow up with different Optin lists will be difficult. But, how far would having a general Optin help? I still feel having relevant and unique Optins would increase the number of people interested in actually clicking on it.

      You can have an Optin Form that appears when the reader clicks on a particular anchor text. If having a general Optin Form for the entire blog is all you want, you need to make sure that it does not reappear once a reader has responded to it. What say?

    As an owner of an autorepesonder system I have seen literally thousands of optins - the bottom line is a overlay that you set to show up daily works the best in general...

    People are pretty blind to optin forms on the side of your page by now since they see a hundred a day..and by now are used to popup type forms..
