6. Get a "smart" pop-up code for your sales site.
You want a little box to pop up when visitors leave your website in order for them to sign up for your mini-tips. You CAN use a small notice at bottom of your sales page for people who've decided not to order, but a pop up box would probably work best.
You don't want box to pop up when people are navigating your sales site -- only when they're LEAVING that particular domain name altogether. I'm not sure where to get a code like this, but I have one if you're interested. I'll give it to you for joining my ezine. ;-) Just e-mail me with same address you use to subscribe, and let me know you'd like code. It's yours!
7. Create an ezine sign-up box in your pop-up window.
You can kill two birds with one stone here. If you have an ezine, tell your visitors that they'll get X number of free tips taken directly from your product when they subscribe to your ezine. As soon as I implemented this technique on one of my own sites, I started getting 15-50 *additional* ezine subscribers every day!
By using this method, not only will you get more *pre-qualified* subscribers to your ezine, but you're also following up ACTIVELY with these visitors with your mini-tip series. (You're following up with them *passively* with your periodic newsletter.)
8. Set your pop-up box to appear only once, when visitors are leaving your sales site.
It's best to also put another testimonial in window, right before asking them to subscribe to your newsletter for tips. See how I did this at: http://YahooSecrets.com/leaving.html
To add these visitors to your newsletter and your mini-tip series at same time, simply put your list host's subscribe address AND your autoresponder address in "Recipient" field of your form. (If you need to screen your addresses for names like I do, this won't work. You may need to enter subscribers in manually.)
9. Test your follow-up messages, your sign-up form, and your pop-up box.
This is a given, but I thought I'd list it just in case. I know how easily I forget to TEST to be sure my newfangled promotion will even work before I start using it. In all excitement, sometimes we overlook little things.
Be sure your messages are formatted neatly, your sign-up form is subscribing people to your follow-up series AND your ezine (if applicable), and your pop-up box is only appearing when people leave your entire website (NOT your sales page).
As soon as I started using this method of follow up, I increased my sales. You won't be able to notice benefits from this immediately. Instead, you'll need to wait a few days (or weeks) while your follow-ups are doing their job. In time, you should see more sales of your infoproduct, and more sales from your opt- in list as a result of more highly qualified subscribers.
