Optin - what is best?

Hey Warriors,

I wanted to ask, as I don't seem to be able to find a thread that discusses this in detail, what is your experience with using optin's that are email only Vs Email and name?

You see without name you can't customise emails however I can see how NOT collecting the same is more likely to increase optin.

What is your experince? What would you suggest?

    You have to test this in relation to your own business to know what will essentially be best...

    This has been debated many times.

    For me, I don't ask for the first name as I don't use it in my emails.

    I don't use a greeting, I just start right into the body of the email.

    I tested it for several months in my own business and determined that was the best fit for me and my business, but you might find different results.

    This has been discussed here on the forum a few times and each time you get a 50/50 split on what is best.

    I have not tested this myself, but, I do not ask for name. I start me emails with "Hello" or "Good Day"

    It depends on the demand for the niche and the targeted audience. If you have a vague audience, than go for just an email submit, if it is more targeted, email, name, and maybe a little more.
    Say if you send very targeted traffic that needs a remodel job done on their house. This type of targeted audience is more than willing to fill in a long optin form in order to get the service that they need.

      I can tell you what works for me (email only) but that means nothing to you.

      You need to test it yourself, there are too many variables to give a definite answer.

    It depends on your business, niche and audience, you have to test this for yourself in order to see which works best and obviously gives the most optins....

    All the best
