“It’s not just about the knowledge you have. It’s about someone wanting to be in your space.” – Dana Malstaff
3 Things We Learned From This Episode
- Don’t think of an opt-in as an end result, think of it as the beginning.
- Sales pages: stop telling people what the features are, and start telling them what the benefits are.
- Your personality matters just as much as your content, so make sure it shines through.
Your opt-ins can’t just be opt-ins. They have to be part of your overall business strategy, and you have to see them as the beginning of a relationship and not the end goal. Remember: the purpose is to give a good first impression so people want to learn about and engage with you even more. It’s all about giving them a reason to want to get into your space.
