(This is a email marketing and list building test. If you are not already building a profitable list online, get started with Aweber today with just a few simple clicks)
Yeah, this really came as a shock to me initially… but after I tested this myself and getting ridiculous number of leads on my test blog post. I became a believer.
In one blog post I was getting results like these –
E-mail opt-in test: Day 4
E-mail opt-in test: Day 15
Remember, these results are from just ONE blog post!
So what’s the secret here? Read the following case study from conducted by one of the customers of Aweber (the only autoresponder I’ve used to create six-figure businesses online).

” To lightbox or not to lightbox, that is the question.”
– Shakespeare’s most over-adapted (because it’s perfect) quote
You’re browsing a site and suddenly, a form pops up in your face, blocking the page with an offer you didn’t ask for.
Obnoxious, right? But plenty of sites use lightboxes to request email subscriptions. The common explanation: “They’re annoying, but they work.”
But how is this possible? We’ve got proof from a customer who tested them for herself.
We Were Amazed When We Saw Her Results
Nikki McGonigal is a full-time crafter and blogger with an Etsy shop full of handmade accessories and a site called Nikki, In Stitches.
She sends emails notifying subscribers of fun ideas, new product announcements and the occasional freebie. We were talking with her about her emails when she mentioned her lightbox subscriptions.
She uses both a lightbox and a static sidebar form. The lightbox pops up once every 60 days per site visitor, at a delay of 2 seconds. The inline form is always visible.
Nikki’s Sidebar Form
Both forms went up on the site in late August of 2012. Eight months later, these are her results:
|Form Type||Form Displayed||Form Filled Out||Subscription Rate|
The lightbox drove an enormous 1,375% more sign ups than the sidebar form. (Did you see that? 1,375% more!)
Goes to show that getting results doesn’t always mean being polite. If you don’t have a lightbox on your site yet, you may want to reconsider.
It’s important to consider that the forms, though nearly identical, are not quite. The logo visible near the sidebar form is placed directly on the lightbox and the intro text is slightly tweaked.
However, these differences are so negligible that the forms?? placement is by far the most significant difference, and therefore the one responsible for the bulk, if not all, of the difference in sign-up rates.
Getting A Lightbox On Your Site
Just so you know, lightboxes like Nikki’s are super easy to put on your site in AWeber: just selecting an option in the web form generator.
In fact, you can have an entire form built and on your site in 8 clicks and a copy-and-paste. Take a look at the process.
If You’re Not Emailing Yet…
If you haven’t started a newsletter yet because you’re not sure how to drum up an audience, we say take Nikki’s lead and get a lightbox on your site.

bHIP Global: What To Do NEXT?
As mentioned earlier in this review, there are a few simple “secrets” that will affect the outcome of your business AND your income whether you decide to join bHIP Global or another business opportunity.
The typical “plan” or “pitch” a corporate or field leader in the industry usually emphasizes the concept of a penny doubling every day… which goes something like this:
1 > 2 > 4 > 8 > 16 > 32 > 64 . . . > over 1 MILLION distributors
If you sponsor just 2, who sponsor 2, who sponsor 2, etc.
YUP, the compounding effect IS absolutely a powerful concept in and by itself! Yet what we have to realize is it doesn’t usually work out the way it is presented from stage because we are dealing with human beings with various backgrounds, different levels of education, self-esteem, income and outlooks on life, etc.
Ooops.. sorry to burst your bubble… but this is the reality, and YES, there IS hope.
The simple truth is that for duplication to kick in in a big way, you need to personally recruit around 50 – 100 people in the life of your career with a company to see significant results – say, an additional $100,000 or more annually.
Now, let’s say you sponsor 100 people personally. Of the people in that group of 100, anywhere between 5 to 15 people will actually duplicate and sponsor additional members or customers like you did, and the rest of the group are almost always product users who very very infrequently share the products or the business opportunity with others.
And once you sponsor enough people, then it’s all about your team’s culture and leadership to develop and keep the people there.
All in all, in the beginning phase of your business… it’s about hustling, working hard and smart to get whatever results you can.
This means, LEADS… or the SIZE OF YOUR LIST, and the quality of the relationship you build with that list is the game-changer.
Perhaps you will learn a few things from my personal story…
I learned this the hard way myself in my first network marketing company. I recruited only around 30 people personally after 2 looooong years (yes, it took that long… I was new and din’t know what I was doing) which grew to a team of roughly 120 people that yielded a decent business that produced, in average, $2,500 a month. It was NOT the 6 people my upline mentors had suggested. It was 30!
Shortly after that I learned and applied the art and science of online lead generation, and it changed everything.
Today my business (not bHIP Global) brings in as much as $24,700 in monthly income while I work no more than 3 hours per day in my business.
I would like you to take a look at the only system I recommend for generating leads for your business so you can bring in more traffic, leads (i.e. real people) , sales and an exploding team in your bHIP Global business.
Thanks for your leadership,
