Read to the end for an email template that has gotten a spooky makeover.
When you sell products in emails, social media, or other places online, often you want to link directly to a purchase pop-up instead of a product landing page.
Think about it: Your email likely already serves as a sales page — with a product image, description, and price. Sending your potential customers to a landing page where they have to click “Buy now” again means potentially losing out on sales.
Now, if you sell using AWeber ecommerce + Stripe, you can link directly to your sales page’s order form pop-up. When the customer clicks, they’re immediately directed to enter their credit card information. No distractions.
Here’s how it works for your customers:
Ready to use the link? Once you have a product set up in your AWeber account, click “Order Form” and then click to copy the Order Form Link. Simply paste it in your email or anywhere else you’re promoting your sale.
Tip: Get new products set up in minutes and start selling from anywhere using this direct-to-payment link. After the purchase, you can redirect customers to another site or simply a thank you page.
Charge quarterly recurring payments
You may already offer subscriptions and payment plans on your landing pages — to make purchases easier and bring in regular income. Now, in addition to charging weekly, monthly, or yearly, you can also set recurring payments on a quarterly basis.
Coaches and instructors may have new, in-depth content every three months, rather than monthly. Now, they can charge clients on a quarterly basis — matching the content release. Coaches can also offer quarterly payments for a course, with a discount off their monthly rate.
Service providers may find themselves in a similar situation. If your projects take several months to complete, quarterly retainers may suit your business model better than monthly ones.
Even podcasters and paid newsletters can use quarterly payments — by offering a three-month recurring ad spot, charged 4 times a year.
Do quarterly payments make sense with your business model? Offer one to your clients now with Aweber ecommerce.
Make your landing page a homepage
Don’t have a website? No problem! You can now easily set a landing page to be your homepage — aka the main page of your new website.
Here’s how: Set up a landing page you want to use as a homepage. In the page settings — under the domain settings — toggle “Set as homepage” to on.
Your homepage will be accessible at [YOUR ACCOUNT].aweb.page or [YOUR ACCOUNT].aweb.page/home. For example, financialbiz.aweb.page.
Or, you can buy or connect a domain easily, directly in your AWeber account. Then you can set up your landing page to show at your domain.
For example, if you bought or connected the domain myfinancialbiz.com, your landing page — actually, your new website — will be accessible at http://myfinancialbiz.com/.
