Turn Mobile Visitors into Leads With Mobile Specific Opt-in Forms

Mobile website traffic is increasing and will not go down anytime soon. So the question is: how do you convert those visitors into leads?

The answer is most certainly not:

  • Showing them a lightbox so big they have to scroll to find the opt-in or close button.
  • Not showing them any opt-in forms at all.
  • Shrinking your opt-in forms to fit smaller screens, making them difficult to read and impossible to fill out.

The real solution you need is to use mobile specific opt-in forms.
