Email Opt-In Pop-Up from Bernie Sanders

Key Takeaways

  • On Bernie's site there are four different opt-in forms used that each serve their own purpose & optimize the probability of getting a subscriber or share. Keep this variety in mind for your own site. Instead of just using one opt-in form, think about different incentives & placements you can try out to multiply your chances of getting a subscriber.
  • After someone subscribes, they are then presented with the opportunity to visit Bernie's social media pages. This is a smart addition in that the user is given an option to continue engaging instead of potentially leaving to go elsewhere. Keep this in mind for your own confirmations & provide a secondary action to compound the effectiveness of that opt-in.
  • Bernie does not just use boring button copy like "Subscribe" or "Get Updates". Instead, he uses "Join The Movement" which carries a lot more meaning & represents his brand. Next time you're creating button copy, keep this in mind. At the same time, don't fall into the trap of being too clever. Clarity trumps persuasion & you don't want to create button copy that doesn't imply what the visitor is doing by putting in their email address.
