Basically the niche I'm working in is Betta fish care and my email opt in promises to teach the reader 3 deadly mistakes to avoid, followed by a week of free general care lessons. Once they opt in the thank you page they have a big "Thank you, please check your email!" type message that explains that Deadly Mistake #1 should have arrived in their inbox. In the paragraph below that, I have a short OTO type message asking if they want to read a letter from a long time Betta expert who recently wrote a full care guide (the sales page for the product I'm promoting).
This is the setup of my thank you page, and my open rate seems low, message #1 only gets opened by 35-45% of the people who sign up according to Aweber. Is this a poor open rate? If so, how would you improve it?
I've tried a few configurations of the thank you page and nothing drastically changed my results.
Actually, if you care to see it, the page can be viewed at Thank You! - Betta Fish Care 101 - Guides & Lessons for Beginners
