Published on

Are you building your blog's email list as fast as you could be?

If you're anything like most bloggers, probably not.

In this presentation, you'll learn what your forms must do to make people want to subscribe, how to turn your most popular pages into subscriber magnets, and where to place your forms so that every visitor, no matter how they get to your site, can join your list.

This presentation was originally given at #FinCon12.
