View Full Version : Converting Every Visitor into Subscriber
08-26-2009, 12:42 AM
If a person visits your website and leaves, the chances are he or she will not come back especially if there are no good enough reasons to. After all, we all behave rather impulsively on the Internet, so much so that we might forget where we were 10 web pages ago. Your visitor may not come back to your website again. If a 1,000 visitors visit your website, leave and never come back again, you can imagine the amount of potential money lost, simply because they do not come back, WOW. After hearing this in a video internet tutorial I bought online, I was out of my mind. I had a online afffiliate program that I was involved in, I had lots of vistors to the site, but no one would subscribe to my newsletter. The tutorial taught me a lot about internet marketing. I will holla at y'all later.

Wait, where's the link to this mind-blowing "video internet tutorial" you speak of?
Are you new to spamming?

There are plenty of social bookmarking sites out there and also most of the browsers have bookmarking feature so if visitors really like your content they'll bookmark it and visit again, so nothing to worry!

I have to think you're being very unrealistic if you think that every visitor to your website is going to sign up for your newsletter. Some percentage may do so, but I'd guess that one person in ten is about the highest return you can expect.
As only one fact to support this opinion, I reckon you need to understand the variety of people who visit you in the first place and to then recognize that they'll have a host of different reasons for doing so.
As in most cases, no two people are alike. To lump everyone into a single category and to assume that they'll all act in a consistent way just isn't sensible.

Well, the only way to get subscribers to your website - is to make that website your squeeze page! ;)
To get high conversions, your visitors must have just two options - to opt in to your list, or to leave. No other links, no other options. Clearly state what they get in return for subscribing.
By doing this, on several websites, I have a conversion rate of over 68%, which is very high. And the only page I worry about (and drive traffic to) - is my squeeze page.
And no one should argue that the biggest money to be made is on the list ;)

Converting every visitor into a subscriber is everyone's goal.If you don't give them enough reason to sign-up, they wont bother to visit again and it would mean lost opportunity.

One factor involved in increasing sign ups to one's newsletter is to have people pre-sold on your niche product visit your site. That alone increases the chances of conversion. If your site caters to a niche (where you have affiliate marketing banner links) selling, for example, airplane models, you might want to compile a list of people blogging on anything from airplanes, to WW2, to aviation photography, etc. You can get the sites and email ads from many forums. I'm sure there are other factors, but I would start with that.

now that is the tricky part, after we got the desired traffic... :)

Of course it's tricky. Once someone visits your site, your content is all she has to interact with. Promotion is over once she makes it to your site. Now, the problem is conversion.

Conversion doesn't have to be the sole domain of the site itself. There are newsletters, emails, flyers, and so on.

You can easily convert 100% of your visitors in your subscribers. Simply ask them to subscribe in order to to use your website (e. g. if they want submit link to the directory). But if you send newsletter to 1,000 of such subscribers you will see no results.
I have good experience with putting the sign up box on my website under the menu. This way only people who are really interested sign up for the newsletter. I may be 1% or even less but there is a great response from them.

Guys do you think using popup form when people leave is a good idea? For me it is too annoying.
For me it is too annoying.
For others it is not. As usual it depends on how it is implemented. Those, like my son, that hates popups use Opera.
Hover ads can go around the popup blocking. I will not recommend that. Being too smart can end up as being silly.

It's never easy to convert 100% of visitors to subscribers unless your site is directed by targetted niche. So, if the visitors come to your site from a targetted link of what they are looking for, then it will be likely for them to signup. But then your signup page must be done in such a way that makes them wanting to be in your list.
So, I always believe that it is a good idea to have a squeeze page for signup directed from related source. Therefore people that come to your squeeze page are the ones who look for your products / services and they will sign up.

SEO will not have any appreciable effect on whether visitors find what they need when they arrive at your site.
