Have you been watching the debates?
 
Lots of arguing. Lots of name calling. Looked like boys on the playground shouting at each other in 3rd grade.
 
After a while I just couldn’t watch it anymore.
 
I retreated to my comfy bed and watched a spiritual video. This always nourishes me and gives me a calm sense of peace. I bet a lot of other people felt the same way about last night. Some people are so loud trying to get your attention that you just have to walk away.
 
Donald Trump (and all the other politicians) has gotten tons of attention on TV and the internet these past few months. He’s done it largely by saying extreme things and insulting his competitors (and his competitors have been insulting him back). And strangely all this noise seems to be working for him, at least if you go by what the polls show…
 
But, you don’t have to be loud or obnoxious to get people’s attention.
 
In fact, if you talk to people nicely about something they are interested in, most people will listen to what you have to say.
 
And on your website, one of the best ways to do this is the popup. Yes, popups work to get people to optin to your email list.
 
I know, when popups first came out, they were like Donald Trump…

                          “WAIT – Don’t Go…!!!”
 
But but you don’t have to be like politicians to use popups to start a conversation with your visitors. All you have to do is talk to your people nicely, and offer them something they might want as an enticement to get on your email list.
 
I’ve been doing this for a while on my website with a popup just like this…

Popup
 
It gives away this free report on WordPress Theme designs (you can see it here live on my blog, the popup shows a few seconds after you land there). And many people appreciate that I gave them this free report. I know because people tell me so. And I know because my email list keeps growing.
 
If you want to learn more about easily adding popups and optins to your website, come check out my Website Transformation Workshop.
 
There’s a webinar replay you can watch there, and I go over how you can easily tweak your WordPress website so it will grow an email list for you, get you more social media followers and get you more clients and customers.
 
Check out it today as enrollment is closing Monday night.
