Your website is a hub for community engagement
If you’re an experienced consumer marketer or circ director learning the ropes of digital publishing, you’re probably wondering how to build your email database. Email marketing has been a successful strategy for years, and all relevant publishers are spending time building an email marketing list.
Of course, it’s impossible to build an email marketing program without the right tools.
First, you need to establish conversion architecture on your website to capture names and email addresses. The best strategy revolves around multiple types of conversion architecture, including OFIEs (order form in editorial), OFINs (order form in navigation), and floaters.
Indexing your content is perhaps the most underestimated part of functional website design. Conversion architecture is crucial to developing lists, but in order to get users interested in converting, you need to have great content that’s easy to find. Honestly, who wants to register with a website if the content is misplaced, hard to find, or lacking in quality?
This program shares strategies on converting casual visitors into registered members. You’ll finish the 90-minute Designing Media Websites that Work program knowing how to build a community around your website.
