THIS IS AN OPEN CALL TO POST ANY EMAILS, SUBJECT LINES, GRAPHICS, WHATEVER -- WHERE YOU ARE COMPELLED TO CLICK!

LETS SEE WHAT WORKS!


I'm guessing this type of email marketing works pretty well.

It worked on me.

I clicked and bought.

The "open loop" (@SinisterLex) of having a slot-machine roll in front of your face is TOO MUCH to handle... you have to PLAY!

This is why we see this module on a lot of eCom shops (the spin the wheel thingy.)

Just an FYI, @AllenCrawley -- right up your alley!

You're absolutely right MJ.

There's the shopify app called "Wheelio" that is outperforming normal pop-ups by 400% on average.

Also saw a fb group post the other day, where a guy showed how he got over 50k emails just with one give-away campaign!

Is this a plug in for word press or can you just include in a stanadard html/bootstrap theme?

I use the Wheelio App on my Shopify store, It's great for lead gen and getting the sale. You are able to set the percentage of what something will land on (40% will land on the 25% off mark).

Be careful though, since most people are viewing your shop through mobile, having other pop-ups like recent sales and FB Chat can make it very cluttered and slow. Incorporating it into email is a very interesting tactic that I will give a try on one of my campaigns, thanks!

I always thought this sort of thing on ecom websites feel spammy and scammy to me (like those "Click to win a tour to Honduras!" sort of thing).

But if everyone here on FLF is raving about it and MJ even bought it, I'm gonna give it a try.

There's a lot of things I'm like, "Meh, I don't like it" or "That's annoying" and they work great.

That's when you have to lay your personal feelings aside.

Thanks! Reminds me of that saying "Do you want to be right, or do you want to be rich?"

Wynn does it to me all the time, I can't not click and see what they're offering me.

So I've changed this thread title to included ANYTHING that makes you click.

If you receive an email and you CLICK because it was effective, post it here and share!
