Opt-In Advertising,

Single vs. Double Opt-In Advertising: What’s The Difference?

opt-in advertising

Opt-in advertising allows users to quickly join your email list, or “opt-in” to email marketing from you. It’s a great way to build a lead funnel. And the best part is you can gather leads without landing pages using either single or double opt-in advertising. Ad units display on the websites your potential customers are already browsing and allow them to submit their email address, phone number or other contact information right within the ad. They don’t have to navigate away from the site they wanted to view, so you’re not paying for costly web traffic or landing page development.

You specify the form fields available to the user to provide contact information, choosing what’s most important for your lead generation campaign. You can also choose single opt-in, where their email is subscribed immediately, or double opt-in, where an initial confirmation email ensures they meant to sign up and safeguards the quality of your list. So which is right for you? Read on to find out!

The Top 3 Types of Lead Generation Offers

No matter where your lead ads are running, every campaign needs lead generation offers. You’re asking users for personal contact information: email address at a minimum, and sometimes more, depending on your business model or service cost. Most people won’t provide their details without feeling like there is an immediate and tangible benefit to them. And if you’re gathering leads without landing pages, they may not even be on your site when they submit their information. Which means that a compelling call-to-action and strong incentive to click “submit” are key.

5 Foolproof Facebook Lead Ad Headlines

facebook lead ad headlines

In some ways, landing pages are easier for copywriters to take on: there’s an endless page to be filled with copy. But does anyone read all that? Not really. As you embark on generating leads without landing pages, space is at a premium. Each word must be carefully selected to help move people through the funnel.

Headlines may be the trickiest part of any advertising campaign. Not too long…but not too short, either. One word won’t do, but a Facebook Lead Ad has limited space. You’ve only got 25-40 characters to play with. So every word has to count! Your headline should be straightforward and to the point. No superfluous, flowery language here! Make it succinct and direct with a clear Call To Action in the headline, as well as the CTA button.

Now that you’ve started generating leads without landing pages, the next step is to nurture those leads into converting customers. You started with a desired target audience, then showed them some basic branding ads. That narrowed your audience down to allow for efficient lead ads. Now you’ve collected contact information of those who meet your customer criteria and were interested enough in your ads to offer up their email address—or maybe more. But the battle isn’t quite over. You have a more personalized way to reach them, but you still have to close the deal. That’s where lead nurturing comes in.
