The Highlights

  • Keep your options as simple as you can. Boil down what you’re selling to the simplest form. Confused readers are more likely to opt out.
    • Returning visitors will see the same messaging over and over again. A simple path is compelling.
  • The fewest clicks from beginning to end will eliminate points when a customer may change their mind.
    • Hidden benefit: If you have a free registration level, they’re already halfway there. They only have to enter payment info.
  • Build a simple landing page, with your benefits, one choice, and maybe the offer of a gift subscription.
    • About 20% of your paid subscriptions should be gifts. A gift subscriptions is low-hanging fruit.
  • If you have a print product as well, try to keep the numbers the same. Don’t make them do math!
    • Consider having only one option, with an opt-out if they don’t want print.
