    Most of the time, it would be to receive the free item, product support or download that is being offered.

    However, sometimes I opt-in because I am curious about the design of a marketer's sales funnel.

    Hello MarketingMinded,

    We subscribe or opt-in to someone's email list/newsletter because we know that they offer something that interests us. We opt-in because we want to be informed about their current products and services, changes on their terms and conditions, current prices, promotional offers, future plans, and the like.

    For some, just like what dsworks, mentioned, they want to observe how the service provider manages their sales and marketing.

    I use a different email just to monitor what they're doing, how they do it, email subject lines, etc.

    I normally sign up to people's opt ins to see their sales funnel.

    I would actually recommend anybody new to e-mail marketing to sign up to lots of different lists and see exactly how people sell to you.

    This is a great way to find new tips and techniques that you haven't thought of just keep track of what messages are coming from who.

    As this is what I did when I first started out and I learned some very clever tricks.

    My main reason for subscribing is because I feel they can deliver excellent content with their email.

    However, most marketer will only deliver well on first attempt and then spam you with affiliate offers.

      I'm on some lists purely to see how people market to their audiences in the various niches i'm active in, see what upsells they offer and what angles they take to promote. I pay attention to the email subject lines and the links i fell like clicking on to understand what was compelling about them for me.

      I only market in niches i'm interested in now, so i figure what works on me ought to work on others like me.

      I have opted-in to get free training in the past, but don't anymore.
