I just saw a Report that had an Optin Form right
within the PDF (not a link but an actual form)

Anybody know how to do that?

    Yes I was talking to the guy who made the software a few days ago.
    Hang on I'll go look....I'm back! Here it is Viral PDF Master and the warrior that made it is called Glen.

    I saved the link because I can think of some great opportunities for this.

    Regards,

      Jack, it's easy.

      Take an HTML page, download it and save it and then just use a PDF
      creator (I use EasyBCL) to convert it into a PDF.

      I actually do this with one of my products.

      ** EDIT ** NEVER MIND...IT DOESN'T WORK! LOL

        Thanks Steven - i'll give that a try - i thought one needed a special s/w for that functionality to integrate pdf to aweber etc. but always willing to try the 'free' methodology first!

          Not so fast. LOL. I just tried it with my EasyBCL on one of my opt in pages
          and for whatever reason, it didn't work right.

          I'm not sure why. I thought it did, but maybe I was mistaken.

          You might want to look into that other option that another member posted
          here.

          Now I have to go try to figure out why this isn't working like I thought it did.

          LOL.

      Okay, I just double checked this in my HIP Ads directory, which I send out
      as a PDF.

      The links from the web page all save as clickable links, but there is no opt
      in form in the PDF. So I was mistaken about what I did with this thing.

      I am now searching online to see if there is a "box" solution other than the
      one offered above, but so far I am coming up empty.

      Sorry Jack...I screwed the pooch on this one.

        Glen's tool looks very promising. It will be especially so if it allows for variables, like the ad tracking field in Aweber's system.

        Or better, custom fields. That would provide extremely valuable data for tracking the usefulness of various site/ad combinations in doing giveaways. I've been looking for something that would do this. Not sure I like the pop-up aspect, but it's worth testing, especially for short reports.

    I capture insane amounts of stats using custom fields, and url shortened links in PDFs. The one thing I have learned is that it always pays not to assume too much when starting out in a niche.

    Going back to the OP - I seem to remember that javascript can be included in PDFs? Am I going mad?

    Anyone know how to add the opt-in inside the PDF and not just a pop-up? Enquiring minds want to know.

    I took a dive and bought Viral PDF Master for $97.00 which is pricey. The first task is
    to put a Aweber opt in form in my pdf files. I'll post here again whether or not it was
    successful.

    Yes, The official software is Adobe Acrobat Pro.. You can do what ever you want with PDF. I've seen many .Gov sites using PDF files with form Filling..

    Viral PDF Master does not place an Opt In form on your pdf. It uses a Javescript that
    pops up once your pdf is opened. You can set the opt in form at open, close, or time day it to open.

    There are a few other features and even though its $97.00 I think Adobe Pro upgrade is $200 while the full version is $450. I think Viral PDF Master is best if you only plan to use
    it to add an opt in form.

    Just a quick heads up on this...

    I recently took a look at a new system that allows you to actually get analytics data from a .pdf...really neat stuff.

    It also allows you to add an opt-in form to a pdf and collect realtime stats on the pdf consumption.

    There are some really promising ideas that I can think of for this...and one of them that the product developers mention is the idea of giving some of the content away in the pdf and then using an opt-in form to restrict the rest of the content.

    I haven't fully tried this yet...and I haven't checked out the new price for the service since they have recently changed names/structure...

      This looks really neat. I mean there are so many of us who hand out free ebooks with affiliate links and stuff embedded in them and it would be awesome to track all that stuff.

      Thanks for the share!
