Why you need a 'thank you' page

Congratulations — a new subscriber joined your list! Now it’s time to start sending them valuable free content and begin building trusting relationships over email — right?

Yes, but here’s the truth: your subscribers will never be more engaged with you than in the minutes after they sign up for your list.

Why?

Because that’s the moment they’ve decided to welcome you into their inbox. They have decided that you’re someone worth hearing from, and they’re eager to see what you have to offer them.

That’s why a strong ‘thank you’ page could make a big impact on your bottom line. Capitalize on subscribers’ newfound interest and eagerness to engage with you by using your ‘thank you’ page as an opportunity to sell.

AWeber’s CEO Tom Kulzer recently joined The Thoughtful Entrepreneur podcast to talk about how ‘thank you’ pages are often a hidden opportunity for conversions.

“The ‘thank you’ page is a dead end on many businesses’ sites. However, when it’s used correctly to offer an upsell, it can be one of the highest converting pages on your site,” Kulzer said.

That’s because new subscribers display three characteristics that mean they’re ready to buy from you: 

  1. They know and understand who you are.
  2. They understand the problem that you’re solving for them.
  3. They’ve already given you their email address. 

“Offering something additional that you can sell to them can generate a tremendous amount of new revenue. If you’re not using this page, it’s a huge missed opportunity.”
