Right so Raymond sends out an email and i’m not the type to quote from email threads, but this is educational. Raymond’s email has a SINGLE link. nothing else. Wow. Rude, right?
I clicked the link and was taken to this site where a guy does a study to test the two versions of the form to my left. You’ll notice the form with fill-in-the-blankÂ exerciseÂ Â actually significantly outpulls the traditional one.
Ferny emails back to tell us how excited he is about the concept.
Meanwhile, I came up with this example i might use on my “bugger off” optin box :
My name is _________. Pleased to meet you Mr. Jim Yaghi. I’d love for you to email me some of your insights toÂ marketing and your ebook on having a great time while keepin it realÂ with the lord. You may email me at _________________.
Look at that, I even got them to tell me their name twice. Booyahh!
I haven’t tested this, but it would be worth a shot. If you get amazing conversions with it, let me know.
