Landing Page Review – Stu McLaren – Free Training Opt-in Page
“But wait”……. I hear you say. Isn’t Stu in the middle of his big annual launch? Why is he running ads to a separate opt-in? Well, this is where the strategy becomes interesting.
Here is the opt-in page you land on from the ad.
The primary promise here is clear. Register, and your will “Watch the Free Video Now”.
One of the big challenges running Facebook ads for a launch that happens in the future is delayed gratification. People opt-in, but they have to wait to have their problem solved until some time in the future and ain’t no one got time for that. I want all my problems solved right now (preferably without having to do any work!)
So let’s take a look at the opt-in thank you page:
Immediately after opt-in, people get an “upsell” to the free launch Workshop.
Even if they don’t take the follow-up CTA to save their seat on the Workshop, they will be added to the launch list and receive the launch email sequence.
One of the keys to pulling this strategy off is ensuring that the immediate freebie is closely aligned with the workshop topic. If you are interested in Funnels to grow your membership, you will also be interested in this Workshop.
Free Immediate Gratification > Free Delayed Gratification works on the same principle as Freebie > Mini Product. It takes resources to pull it off, and there is a chance that the conversion rate to the product being sold is lower; however, it should result in a lower cost per lead.
