Do you see lower-than-average click through rates on your email newsletters?

Meet Trading Strategy Guides

Casey Stubbs of helps financial traders find a trading strategy that best fits their personality and goals. The site offers training through ebooks and video courses, as well as a private coaching program. When their blog post about bitcoin trading strategies went viral, Casey took advantage of the increased traffic to explode their email list.

Using A Content Locking Script To Add 7,500 Subscribers

As traffic increased to the bitcoin trading strategies post, Casey wondered what he could do to capture the email addresses of the added visitors.

He knew that whatever he offered in exchange for the address had to be related to bitcoin so that those visitors would be interested. He also knew he had to act quickly before traffic returned to normal. He didn’t have time to create an entirely new lead magnet to entice readers.

Casey was already using a popup form on his site. He knew whatever optin form he created, he’d be able to target to the bitcoin trading blog post using our simple page targeting display rules.

Casey realized that people were desperate for the strategies shared in the bitcoin trading article. Rather than simply share the tips freely, he decided to learn how to use content locking to provide access only to readers who would provide their email address in exchange.

A content locking script denies access to content until the reader completes a specific action, most often providing their email address. Once the reader subscribes, the content is immediately revealed.

Our new popup content locking script is available for inline optins that appear within the content of your page or post.

Any content below the placement of the content locking script will be blurred out, or removed altogether until the reader subscribes.

How One Company Added 11000 Subscribers With One Script

In just under two months, Casey added almost 7,500 subscribers to his list from this single content locking script. Over 17% of visitors subscribe for access to the protected content.

Once Casey saw success with this method, he began adding the content locking script on other pieces of content, too, adding an additional 3,200 subscribers to his list in the previous month.

That’s almost 11,000 new subscribers added as a direct result of our content locking script!
