Post a privacy policy. In a world where identity theft is more likely to affect you than not, every visitor wants to feel confident about how the information a site collects will be used. This is as important for a subscription form as it is for a shopping cart. A privacy policy should outline how both non-identifiable and personally identifiable information will be stored, shared, and used.

Encourage action. A call to action (CTA) can be a link to a social-media account, a subscriber form, a link to a download, or a promo code for use in a shopping cart. Placing a CTA on every page prompts visitors to interact with the site. These interactions are tracked by the search engines and result in positive information being reported about the visit — not to mention the actual benefit that is received when the CTA is activated. CTA links must be appropriately structured to gain maximum benefit.

Entice subscribers. Subscription forms transition visitors to customers of content and give the site owner opportunities to further them along the conversion funnel.

Segment subscribers. Subscriber forms should require enough information that the list can be segmented into logical marketing groups. This ensures more-effective messaging and better content within the targeted landing pages. Segmentation qualifiers can be demographics, product interest, or any other group-identifying information.

Keep a running tally. Lead scoring is a process where points are tallied each time a prospect responds to marketing activities. Lead scoring alongside a multi-tiered nurturing campaign is quite effective at moving prospects through the conversion funnel and understanding when a prospect is ready to make a decision or purchase.
