Do you have a strategy to effectively convert your website visitors into email subscribers? Does your website need to be optimized to convert more of your visitors into subscribers?

Having an e-mail newsletter or autoresponder is not enough to effectively convert visitors into e-mail subscribers. Far too many websites set up an email opt-in form then simply let it go. This is a critical error – you should constantly work to improve your email opt in offer and form to convert more visitors into email subscribers.

This post tells you how to convert even more visitors into subscribers.

I couldn't agree more, just placing a box for a visitor's email address to subscribe is not enough--never has been, really. I also believe you should offer quality content on your home/squeeze page to keep visitors intrigued. It only takes a small effort but it's worth it.

Good tips. The one thing I do wonder about the pop ups is that people say they do increase subscriptions, but I never see any mention of those that opt in that way actually buy anything and how many unsubscribe.

Done correctly, yeah. I probably won't use pop-ups for fear of alienating users. Hardly a day goes by that I don't close my browser due to being take "captive." But, I have plenty of work to do in the area email marketing, something I've neglected too long.

Great advice!

Regarding the pop-ups, though: I have had a few instances of pop-ups that float across the screen, making them "a game" to close; I didn't find it amusing. Secondly, I have had a few instances on otherwise legit business sites where in order to close the pop-up I had to close my browser. That is taking a "captive-audience" to ridiculous new levels.

Done correctly, as you day, pop-ups work. Done incorrectly they make me want to stick my boot up someone's #ss!
