The 4 Essential Components Of An Opt-In Box

The Opt-In box is where you are asking a website visitor to give you their information, so it shouldn’t surprise you when I say it is the single most important aspect of your landing page!  It would be tragic to have spent countless time and money on content creation, advertising and search-engine optimization only to have people not sign up because of something you missed on the Opt-In.  Watch this video to make sure you have done all you can to scoop up as many e-mails as possible!


Headline – Why should people opt in and give you their email address?

Picture Of Your Offer You are probably not sending these website visitors something tangible but you want them to feel like you are. Design a nice report cover so they feel like what they are receiving is “real.”
