where to find the "whoa trigger" script Ryan Deiss came up with

11 replies
Hi there,

I'm looking for that piece of code you wrap around a picture
on a squeeze-page, so when someone clicks on the picture
expecting to see a video, a message pops up and tells them
to opt in first before they can see the video.

Cheers

Veit

    Hi Veit

    I've never seen this before but here's how I would do it: take a shot of the opening frame & publish it as a JPG hyperlinked to your sign-up form. Then direct the success url of the sign-up form to the video.

    Hope this helps,

    Will

You will be sent a confirmation email and link to the absolutely free video.'); return false;"><img src="video_place_mark.png" width="400" height="300" border="0" /></a>

    Adjust to your pics/message.

      that's the one, thanks John

      btw, anyone who wants to copy it, you need to add a closing </a> at the end

      much appreciated John

        NP! I edited the code above in case someone searches it later. Did too quick a cut paste i guess.

        I actually had an 89% optin rate using that method where before I would get was around 33%-50%. You have to be very selective about the screen shot you pick though -- make sure it is like a headline; curious yet you know by looking at it it may solve your problem.

          Interesting preliminary finding. Have you calculated the before and after attrition rate?

          Just when you think you've got it all figured out, someone changes the rules.

    I think that's what you're looking for? Not my product, but fits the bill perfectly!

    To me this smacks of desperation - can't you just show them the damn video! If the video is any good they'll be begging you to opt in to your list.

      Feel free to rant, no worries.

      Ryan Deiss reports a 14% increase in optins with the text popping up.
      He also reports higher conversion when NOT showing the video first.
      So, that's exactly what I'm testing now: video vs no video,
      popup text vs no popup text.

      Cheers

        Well it's up to you. It may increase opt-ins but it could be at the cost of making your site look less professional.

        It's almost as bad as those exit pop-ups. If a site tries to start beeping, popping up things, auto playing videos etc. doing stuff I don't expect. I shut it down very fast!

        But hey even the mighty Paypal are at it with their recent exit pop-up, so maybe I am piddling in the wind here! Come to think of it I have spent less money with Paypal lately...

          Gee, let me think... optins or looking a bit less professional. That's a tough one.

    Yup - this is not a script, but basic HTML code .. it's an alert tag wrapped around the image. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Pretty simple eh?
