We Hate Spam (and our optin rate) As Much As You Do…

As I often do, I posted one of my “Conversion Tips” to Twitter today, and the response was fantastic and I got a ton of re-tweets!

This was the tip:

Conversion Tip: The words “We Hate Spam” near your optin button actually HURTS optin rates in most tests.

Several people asked me to expand on the tip, so here it goes…

I’m not sure who started it, but it’s everywhere. (I probably still have it on a few of my own sites.)

“We Hate Spam as Much As You Do!”

That’s the statement near the submit button on websites all over the net.

In fact, according to Google, the phrase “we hate spam as much as you do” is found on over 2,000,000 pages.

People see other websites using the phrase, assume it must work and paste it on their own site.

But guess what?…

Misunderstandings are the fault of the WRITER not the READER…

dunce-spelThe feedback and response I got to my recent “My Squeeze Pages Suck” video was great.

… At least MOST of it.

While I got dozens of great emails from folks telling me they liked the video, I did get one not-so-nice email that I got a chuckle out of.

In my email and video I talked about running tests to increase the “opt-in” rate of your landing pages.

Squeeze Page Review Video

free-vid.jpgOkay… It is VERY rare for me to visit any Internet marketing forums. The amount of misinformation, and “talkers” not “doers” just turns my stomach.

Well, since I’m in the process of setting up a few squeeze page test rounds for clients to be used in my upcoming “Optin Conversion Secrets” course, I decided to record a quick critique video giving a few of my own recommendation about what to change based on my test…
