Best Practices For Website Design
- Make it First On Your Sidebar: Nothing new here expect that it works!
- Add Call-Out To Blog Posts: You’ve seen this before, there is a box with a call-out, “Like what you’ve read? Subscribe and be the first to know when we post new content!” This answers the question, where do I go from here. Importantly, they’ve spent 3 minutes reading your post, they are already engaged, don’t lose them!
- Dedicate an Entire Page for Your Newsletter: I’ve had one, removed it and just recently, I’ve put the page back in. Why, you ask? Because they are looking for the “what else?” And, you may have dedicated content just for signing up and a dedicate page is a great place to showcase what they’ll get.
