How would you rank these opt-in strategies as best for conversions? 1 = best and 3 = worst.
A. Create free report (or any type of free gift). Provide squeeze page showing ebook cover graphic of report. Tell visitor he gets the free gift if he enters his details. The typical strategy.
B. Provide squeeze page announcing some cool benefit if the person opts-in, e.g. "learn how you can get traffic in literally 60 seconds". Visitor opts-in. He lands on a salespage promoting product about said benefit. Visitor may or may not purchase product. But at least, he's in your list.
C. Visitor comes to a salespage. Makes a purchase. He's lands on an opt-in page. He needs to opt-in to get the product he paid for.
I've seen all these methods, and I was wondering in your expert opinion how you would rank these for sales conversion effectiveness.
If you've got another tactic that works, please share. Thanks.
