Inspiring opt-in forms

Have you come across any opt-in forms lately that inspired you to sign up?

I admit I’m a sucker for those Instant Slideup forms and want to start using them. They are unobtrusive even while being more noticeable than the typical form. Plus they are attractive so I’m more inclined to sign up even if the free goodies don’t interest me. You can see one in action at Michel Fortin’s blog.

Dali Burgado shares an opt-in form that she liked:

“Email List Name” – A Different Kind of Email List

Get the email newsletter that isn’t an email newsletter. ______ is more like getting short emails from your friends . 2 or 3 times a week, I have cool links and short bits of behind-the-scenes advice on _________, _____________-, ____________. Basically, it’s great stuff you’ll never see on the blog.

Subscribe now and get a 38-minute audio download of _____________ !

And yes, I will sell you stuff from time to time (what did you think, LOL). If you’re not comfortable with that, don’t sign up.

Sign up now:


I would sign up for a list like that. Plus I like the “38 minute” video; they are being specific and witty at the same time.

I’m going to keep my eye out for opt-in forms and share them here, like I do with email subject lines. If you have any you’d like to mention, please leave a comment.
