I’ve decided to get new subscribers to my newsletter the way Barack Obama and The White House are doing it.
This is what you get the first time you visit The White House online
The first time you visit my blog, you’ll see a welcome page (a splash page) that tells you about my free ebooks and my newsletter. If you don’t want the ebooks or subscribe to my newsletter, you can just click the link at the bottom and go to the blog.
It’s fairly easy to do.
This is my welcome page, you’ll only see it once (the first time you visit my blog).
This is how I do it.
I have been testing a WordPress plugin called Welcome Splash for a few weeks, and I’m very satisfied with the results, even though I keep editing and changing the welcome page “all the time.”
The reason I am using a welcome page is that I am spending a lot of time creating my newsletter and I want as many people as possible to read it. It has become one of the most important part of my marketing (it’s more personal and I get a lot of feedback). If you don’t have a newsletter set up for your personal site or business yet, you can find some inspiration to set one up here.
