I found a cool way to get more comments (on your videos, blogs, etc) AND more opt ins
Okay so I tried an idea I had over the weekend. I wanted to see my conversion go up. I just got into list building, because I truly see the potential in it. Well anyhow here's what I did:
1. I used a heading revealing what it is I wanted to reveal, that of course benefited my targeted audience.
2. I then gave them free info revealing that info, not in an ebook, or a link to another page, I gave it to them right then and there.
3. I had a link underneath that read 'Click here for part 2'
4. After a vistor clicked that link they were taken to another page that with the headlines "Oh, oh! You've reached my members only area, but no worries, I don't want your money. Simply comment here (here was a link to a video I wanted comments on) and when you do, email me your username so I can verify your comment post and I'll send part 2 to you ABSOLUTELY free!
5. I made sure I had my autoresponder set up so that an attachment of the file featuring part 2 would immedietly be sent to my subscribers.
And thats it! Even if you don't get the comment on your post, you still got a new subscriber. I would suggest the following script (not word from word) to avoid looking like a jerk once someone thinks they're out smarting you by NOT giving you their user name to get the 2nd part of your info.
"Okay, okay, you win. Part 2 is yours. I would greatly appreciate your thoughts on part 1 and part 2, but I do understand you'd like to have the time to actually take in this good bit of info I'm providing to you...."
What this does is imply that you thank them for leaving feedback on part 1, part 2 or both. So no freebie subscribers can ever call you a phony.
