  2. Turn Your Blog Posts into Opt-In Lead Magnets

  5. Write In the First Person
     
    Your call to action button text should be written in the first person. "Start My Free Trial" always pulls better than "Start Free Trial" or "Start Your Free Trial".
     
  6. Pop-Ups Work Wonders, So Use Them
     
    Adding an exit-intent pop-up to your landing page can improve conversions and sign-ups considerably. There are plenty of WordPress pop-up plug-ins that are free to use.
     
  7. Put Your Testimonials Front and Center
     
    Social proof is an outstanding way to build your email list. Put at least one great testimonial above the fold, and make it noticeable. This simple move can increase conversions substantially.
     
  8. Simplify and Minimalize
     
    Clean up your website. Remove bothersome distractions. A simple, clean, clutter-free website allows you to direct your reader's attention wherever you want to, in this case, to your opt-in form.
     
  9. Don't Ask for Too Much Information
     
    Studies continue to show that asking for just an email address on your opt-in form is a high conversion practice. People are super sensitive these days concerning Internet security. Accordingly, they don't expect you to ask for a lot of information in return for your opt-in gift. Ask for just an email address, and watch your conversions improve.
