You know how most thank-you pages have social share buttons?
Something along the lines of, “Thanks for signing up, now please share this with your friends”?
You know, this kind:
Well, I’ve always been kind of skeptical about how well that call-to-action converts (even though I use it myself). Yeah, it would be nice to have new subscribers share my stuff, but there is just SO LITTLE incentive for them to do it.
I guess other people have thought about that too, because I recently discovered this amazing (& free) tool called SmartBribe.
It incentivizes brand-new subscribers to share your content by offering them an additional cool free thing in return. And it works really well.
I recorded a whole video on how to set up SmartBribe correctly (as it can be confusing) — scroll to the bottom of the post for the video.
I tried SmartBribe on a thank-you page for my live event registration, and it worked like a charm (those social shares brought 30% of my event page views).
This is what my thank-you page looked like:
How To Make Your Thank-You Page More Sharable
Here’s how it works:
- Go to SmartBribe.com and create an account (it’s free).
- Identify your most popular freebie. This might be your homepage offer, a popular blogpost, a recording of a live event or a webinar, etc.
- Create a SmartBribe and put it on the thank-you page that subscribers see once they opt in.
