I’ll keep this brief (you’ve probably heard that before but I really mean it). I’ve been looking at the overall layout of my blog and that made me reconsider the design and layout of my opt-in forms.
You can see my “traditional” opt-in form on the right. I think it’s important to offer something to my subscribers when they sign-up and I am giving away a valuable PLR ebook to all my subscribers.
However, I like the idea of using Google Friend Connect to easily add subscribers and send out newsletters to them to keep them informed of updates to my blog content. I also like the idea of creating a “community” on my blog.
I would appreciate it if you could give me some feedback on this subject. You can either leave a comment in the normal way or subscribe using the Google Friend Connect widget in the sidebar. Thanks in advance.
