The thank you page is the first thing a new subscriber experiences after signing up to your email newsletter or marketing campaign. It does a lot to establish expectations about you and your blog.
It’s also where you can knock their socks off.
An awesome thank you page can get subscribers excited about receiving your emails, making each and every broadcast you send a celebratory occasion for them. (Or, at the very least, make them more likely to open your emails.)
When Aweber redesigned their Web Form Generator, they also created a more personalized thank you page experience for your subscribers. I’ve been testing their Smart Video Thank You page and the results has been fantastic.
A Smarter Way To Say Thank You
Smart Video Thank You pages are a happy medium between AWeber’s default thank you page and your own custom thank you page URL. Aweber can pass subscriber form data to the video thank you page so that everyone who signs up to your list gets a unique experience.
With the Aweber Smart Video Thank You Page, your subscriber see their name with your confirmation subject line instead of a generic “Check Your Inbox” message. And it’s as simple as choosing Smart Video Version from the thank you page drop down menu.
A really great feature of the Smart Video Thank You page is it will pick out the subscriber’s email provider and adjust the video accordingly. So if someone enters an address that includes @gmail.com, they’ll see a video telling them to check their Gmail inbox. Likewise with Yahoo, Hotmail and many others.
If Aweber doesn’t have a specific video available (say, for addresses at personal domains), your subscriber will see a video showing the most popular email application for their operating system (Outlook for Windows, Mail for Mac OS X). The Smart Video Thank You page is probably the closest thing to magic you can experience using a web form.
A good looking web form makes a great first impression on a subscriber, but an engaging thank you page is just as important. You can shape expectations and build anticipation, all the while directing the subscriber to their inbox.
