Does Your Thank You Page Redirect People From Potential Profits

When I began my newsletter, I needed a​ page to​ redirect my subscribers to​ once they signed up. Because I was in​ a​ rush to​ get it​ set up, I redirected them to​ the archives page of​ my newsletter.

Big Mistake #1.

When I had some free time I went back and made a​ thank you page that simply stated, “Thank you for subscribing. Your first issue will arrive shortly.” and listed the archives.

Big Mistake #2

What I failed to​ realize when I set up those two pages is​ that I had my visitor’s attention. They were already interested in​ what I had to​ say because I convinced them to​ sign up for my newsletter or​ eCourse and I let them get away. I missed an​ opportunity. I missed potential profits.

When I redesigned my thank you page I included the standard “thank you” and “make sure you look for your confirmation email”. I also instructed them to​ make sure they added me to​ their safe senders list to​ ensure they receive my emails. But this time I included “You may also be interested in​ these additional free offers:” and listed a​ free eBook, the opportunity to​ sign up for a​ free eCourse, and information about my favorite business author – all using my affiliate links.

Guess what happened? When I checked my affiliate stats, my click through rate increased 100% in​ just two days. Every person who subscribed to​ my newsletter also subscribed to​ the free eCourse I offered. My affiliate sales for the three products I promoted have doubled.

I’ve been publishing my newsletter for five months and it​ makes me sick to​ think about how much money I’ve lost because I didn’t take the time to​ talk to​ my visitors.

Do you know what’s mind blowing? Not only did it​ take me 30 minutes to​ set up the new thank you page, it​ didn’t cost me a​ dime. I already had all the information tucked away in​ my personal affiliate tool kit and was just too lazy to​ pull it​ out and put it​ to​ use.

Don’t make the same mistakes. Take a​ look at​ the page you’re redirecting your new subscribers to. Are you offering targeted product recommendations? Are you keeping them with you or​ just letting them close that window to​ possibly never return? Take thirty minutes of​ your time and the resources you already have available to​ you and update your redirect page.

Your bank account will thank you.
