  1. Great post! I am new to blogging and I am in the process of setting up my first blog now. This information is very useful.

    As always, thanks for sharing.

  2. Hi Gideon

    Thanks for the tips. I’ve resisted the lightbox hover from #3 (because they personally drive me crazy) but after seeing this video have decided to give them a try. Will be interesting to see the increase in opt-in rates.

    Cheers
    Graeme

    • Gideon Shalwick

      Hey Graema

      Good on ya for giving it a go!

      My suggestion is to definitely test out the lightbox hover popup.

      See how it goes.

      And if it goes well, keep it.

      If it does not perform well, just remove it :)

      Gideon

  3. Hi Gideon!

    Thank you for these suggestions, and all of your material. I’m sure you’ve been told this 1,000 times, but your style is very compelling…you’re easy to listen to, you have a great deal of common sense, and you come across as approachable, which is wonderful. My opt-in box is my next priority…it can’t sit on the back burner any longer…thanks! :-)

    • Gideon Shalwick

      Hey Nancy

      Thank you SO much for your kind comments!

      So glad you’re making your optin box as the next priority – it will serve you VERY well in the years to come!

      Gideon

  4. Hey Gideon,

    Nice Post. Today i was reading that Free ebook and i’m amazed with the work, john had did on that ebook.

    Thanks :) !!

    ~Dev

    • Gideon Shalwick

      Hey Dev

      Yeah there are some real GEMS in John’s book!

      In fact, I will be implementing quite a lot of his suggestions over the next few days – powerful stuff!

      Talk soon!

      Gideon

  5. Hi Gideon,

    Thank you for letting me have thses tips.

    Your blog has a lot of value within it and has helped me to improve my knowledge considerably.

    The newsleter opt-in box is a must, and you have just given me a nudge!

    Many thanks,

    Peter

  6. Awesome! Just what I needed…I think I’ll give the pop-up thingie a try after all.
    Thanks, Gideon!

  7. I have resisted using things like lightboxes, popups, etc. since I find them annoying personally. But it seems that to make any headway in this world you have to be a bit pushy. It’s frustrating for me as it goes against my nature, but I need to have some income. It’s time, baby, it’s time!

    • Gideon Shalwick

      Hey LoneWolf

      I know the feeling.

      Although, sometimes you have to do what works.

      One thing to keep in mind is that you can definitely create your popup optin form in a tasteful way.

      For example, set it up so that new people only see it once.

      And also make your message compelling so that people will see the benefit of signing up.

      And finally, always make sure you test it and see how it works for you. It does not always work for all markets, and that is why you need to test it.

      All the best!

      Gideon

  8. Gideon,

    Great video and some great tips as well.

    I can imagine how much everyone can benefit by doing all of these things that you mentioned. If you got a x2 increase just from using a pop up, you could probably see a 5 to 10x increase by using all 7 of the methods.

    Keep the great videos coming!

    Brian

    • Gideon Shalwick

      That’s the name of the game Brian – I see them all as incremental improvements that can all add up to a fairly significant improvement.

      I actually talk about this in a lot more detail in a free report that I’ll be releasing soon… in fact, the very same report you can sign up for on my blog here :)

      Talk soon!

  9. Nika

    gr8 post..fantastic tips…action comments thing looks cool, new to me, will dig into it …thx a lot

  10. Hi Gideon

    Great idea to review the free content for a product launch.

    Andrew

    • Gideon Shalwick

      Hey Andrew

      Great to see you on here again!

      Some exciting stuff coming up!

      What you been up to man?

      Gideon

  11. Aloha Gideon, enjoyed your video clip with your few drop of tips and will look into the free blog gift. Thanks for sharing! Lani

  12. sue

    As always Gideon is easy to follow. He must be good as I followed his videos to set up my self hosted WordPress blog. It is not converting so if anyone out there has any thoughts, it would be great as I am missing something.
    Thnx

    • Gideon Shalwick

      Your blog is not converting?

      What do you mean exactly by “converting”?

      Like, converting into traffic? Converting into optins? Converting into sales?

      They are all very different things that you need different strategies for.

      Gideon

  13. Hi Gideon

    Thanks for the Video – can’t wait to try the plugins – very useful tips!
    Cheers
    Wendy

  14. Interesting tips, Gideon. I’m curious about the “action comment plugin”, I think it was called – the one that emails commenters. Does it only email commenters once? Hopefully not every time they comment. I wonder how many of those emails might end up in spam folders.

    Also, with the lightbox hover or any of those pop ups, do you happen to know whether they are accessible to individuals who use screen readers? Sometimes marketing strategies aren’t really accessible, so I’m always looking for strategies that work and that are accessible.

    • Gideon Shalwick

      Hey Glenda

      I am about to try out the Action Comment Plugin – but I would say there would be a setting for it. John mentioned that you can integrate it with your Aweber account, so I would be surprised if you cannot change some of those settings.

      About the lightbox hover… not sure what you mean by “screen readers”?

      Gideon

  15. Gideon, nice video, thanks for extracting those tips from JC’s guide, I hadn’t gotten around to looking into what he was offering yet.

    You only look a tiny bit tired in the video ;-) Hope everything is going well with the newest member of your family.

    • Gideon Shalwick

      Lol – just a tiny bit tired? I dont think I’m really sleeping at the moment – feels like I’m launching HA!

      Talk soon!

      Gideon

  16. [..YouTube..] nicely done video

  17. Hello Gideon,
    Thank you for the tips and great plug in ideas. As a new marketer with a new blog I have so much to learn and your blog has been both educational and inspirational to me.
    I am an Aussie like you but I live in a remote Thai village about 20 miles from the Cambodian border – no one within coee that speaks English or Thai apart from my family. So I rely a lot on blogs like yours for ideas and shared experiences.
    I have mentioned your site on my blog and referred readers to it because of its excellence.

    Thanks again Gideon – you’re a champion!

    • Gideon Shalwick

      Hey Peter

      Thanks for mentioning my blog on your site – much appreciated!

      And yes, feel free to interact here as much as you want – we all speak English here :)

      Gideon

  18. I just started growing my email list about a month ago. I have an eBook that I wrote that I’m giving away for free as an incentive for people to sign-up. This information is very helpful to me thank you!!

  19. Great teaser for John’s ebook! Just got it and will go through it soon. Now, I’m going to get some of those plug-ins you’ve mentioned. Also thanks for stopping by my blog and checking out the review on the David Jenyn’s interview. Appreciate your comments. BTW, when are you going to put up your Gravatar? :)

    • Gideon Shalwick

      Ah my Gravatar… one would think I should have that all figured out by now hehehe!

      Uhm… where do I go to fix it up again?

      Gideon

      • gravatar.com :), would love to see your face soon on the comments

        • Forgot to mentioned that it’s linked to your e-mail not to your blog, just so whichever e-mail you use, the image will come from that.

        • Gideon Shalwick

          Hey Thu

          Just updated my Gravatar!

          Thanks for the great tip!

          Now people can finally see what I really look like!

          Gideon

  20. [..YouTube..] Great tips Gideon! Perfect timing too for me ;)

  21. Hi Gideon..

    First time here. Nice Blog. Look great. :)
    About the John Chow’s brand new eBook, I already downloaded and finish it. As usual, he’s not dissapointed us. A lot of trick and tip. And a little motivation too.. I encourage all to get it.

  22. Great tips Gideon! I just started my newsletter one week ago from today so these tips came in at the perfect time for me! I am going to implement the strategies immediately!!

  23. Frilleon

    nicely done video

  24. I just searched for the action comments plugin… its $17???? I have never paid for a plugin yet… is this the same one you have? Please let me know how you like it and if its worth $17. That might not be much but since ALL plugins are free its quite a bit…

  25. Hey Gideon!

    Thank you for the video and tips! I personally am one of those people who think the popup/lightbox is a bit spammy looking. But I guess if it works it works right?

    I know Aweber has a popup that well, pops up after you leave the page. I guess it’s all about testing.

    Also I think it’s all about how you approach it. If you provide great material and people can sense your intentions, then they might not mind giving you their name and email.

  26. PrimalToad1

    Great tips Gideon! Perfect timing too for me ;)

  27. Hey Gideon,

    Nice video! I found them very useful and the three I need to implement are:
    1. Action comments plugin
    2. Popup box for Aweber on blog
    3. Feed footer from RSS feeds

    I also messaged John about his incorrect link in the book for his blog profit boot camp signup page so I thought you might want to know. I can see his going to be a doing a product launch soon…

    By the way do you have a FaceBook Fanpage Gids?

    Catch up soon!

    • Gideon Shalwick

      Hey Tyrone

      Cheers for that…

      And yes – just creating my very own FaceBook Fan Page as we speak!

      Will send it out as soon as it’s done :)

      Gideon
