Do you re-direct to your salesletter after someone signs up on your opt-in page?

5 replies
Hey,

I am entering a new niche and I am building a list. I don't want to be seen as just another guy selling something so I haven't been re-directing new subscribers to my salesletter after they've signed up. Instead, I tell them "thanks" for signing up and I tell them that they'll be receiving their report shortly in their e-mail.

Am I missing with some valuable real estate by not putting the salesletter up after the sign up? Remember, this doesn't have anything to do with the IM niche and is actually far from it. Thanks!

    Hey Dave,

    I suggest you make them a special offer immediately after opting in. This is the BEST time and chance you will have of ever making a sale because you have already peaked their curiosity and have their attention.

    I would not worry about appearing like another guy selling something because the fact is, if you're in business then you are. Why hide from it? Oh, and the fact that it does not have anything to do with the IM niche is better -- because they are less accustomed to irresistible special offers and should react even better to them.

    Hope that helps.

      What I have found very effective is what is called a sandwich page.

      Instead of sending them the item that they are opting in for or sending them a link, I put that information on a page that they go to after opting in.

      So, let's say you are offering a free report on how to get more traffic with articles. You would have a page set up with that free report. You must deliver on what you said you were going to give them. As a matter of fact, over deliver. But keep it as short as possible.

      At the end of the information you have provided, have a text link that says "Read More" or "get More Information Here". That link will go to your sales page.

      Keep them in the cycle on your site. Never let them leave the site without seeing your sales page. If they don't buy then, you still have the email to start sending your autoresponder messages to.

      I agree...don't waste the opportunity you have with their attention. But I would also make sure you are offering them a GREAT deal.

      Kind of like a bargain for giving you their information.

    This is a good question i see so many people under utilizing their internet real estate.

    Basically you have

    Squeeze
    Thank you for opting
    Confirmation link
    Sales page
    Thank you for ordering page
    Download page

    I see so many people missing the ball with their opt in thank you's and their than you for orderings.

    Personally I use a opt in with decent link bait--->Thank you for opting (Your link will arrive in 3 minutes but in the mean time check out this offer) then I offer them an upgraded linkbait with a viral optin form---->Confirmation link Send to sales page, or send to a OTO offer page---->Then in follow up i will send them to my sales page if i elect to use a OTO in the previous spot.

    I hope this helps
