Guess What
Further Investigation Proved That
This Strategy Really Does Work

If you are not using these tactics; you’re definitely leaving money on the table.

I’m pretty sure you don’t want to do that, so here are the tactics I discovered.

Use Content upgrades.

What’s a content upgrade?

You start off by transforming your original content into an opt-in freebie; that you then use to tease your visitors so they’ll exchange their email address to gain access.

Sounds like you’ve seen it before, but here’s how it differs; the end result is an extension of the original content on your site page; this provides more value than what is already available.

so visitors to your sites pages are given an exclusive, relevant offer, but only if they subscribe: you then do this with each one of your sites pages.

This will dramatically bump up your subscribers because all your call to actions will become laser targeted to your visitors, no matter what page they are on.

Why are content upgrades so effective?
Why are they such an awesome
Motivator for subscribers…
4 reasons:

  1. Your site visitors will have access to more than just the condensed version of your content
  2. If they love your content they won’t be able to pass up the opportunity for more value
  3. Your visitors get privileged access to your best content that isn’t available anywhere else
  4. You’ve already delighted your visitors with great content; they’ll see a subscription to your email marketing newsletter as an even bigger bonus
Now you see why these marketers can boast that they increase their email subscribers by 600%.

And you will too when you…

You will have more interaction with your content by using content upgrades instead of the typical “one size fits all” call to action.

You will be sure to sell more because all your content upgrades will target the interest of every visitor to your site - - no matter what page they are on.

  • Each page on your site will be transformed into a massive conversion toll
  • Visitors to your site will be glad to give you their email address

Because content upgrades are directly related to your content page, they serve as great teasers and are not intrusive to your site visitors, as such they tend to be much better tools for generating sales.
