Unhappy Newsletters

I was browsing the boards and noticed that some people commented on getting 100+ people a week signing up for their newsletters. How do you do it? I just launched a site and would love to have a newsletter for it. My established sites took FOREVER to get a decent amount of subscribers. Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

I thought about doing a pop-up but so many people hate those things, I thought I might be doing myself more harm than good. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

what i think people hate is seeing the exact same popup time and again on a page, maybe you could try putting a cookie on it so that each user only sees it once... it gets the job done... http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

Cool

Thats a great idea Greg!

I know my visitors don't like popups http://geekvillage.com/ubb/frown.gif
I do have a couple of pages that
people usually exit from that
would be great for a popup but
I still don't want to bug the hell
out of the regulars.

Thanks,

I had a survey on one of my sites asking how often people cleaned their cookies/cache. An over-whelming 75% said they had a program that did it for them daily (saves disk space). Then after the CNet article last week about Web Bugs, those type of programs were downloaded like crazy.

So cookies would not work in my case. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/frown.gif

But it is an excellent idea. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

Well, just tell them that if they enable cookies they will only see the pop-up once.... Their choice...

In 2 years I only got 2 complains, and it gets peopole to sign up in MUCH greater numbers, so it's effective....

Yeah, just tell the people that enabling cookies and letting them do their job is going to make their browsing (surfing) life stay simple, if they go mad crazy deleting them, they just have to keep putting up with popups and ****,,,, and i'd just like to thank all my fans out there for their support of the cookie idea, pffffffffffft... Thank joe it was his idea originally...
