What's the one thing the best entrepreneurs know that you don't? That a Thank You Page is a MUST. They all opt for Thank You Pages instead of Thank You Messages and they do one of these three things that make their Thank You Page extraordinary. 

But first, let's talk about how you even got here? You're reading about Thank You pages because you created an amazing opt-in, freebie, challenge or landing page (Psst. If you want to know how to create landing pages in Squarespace and cancel LeadPages™ then check out this post.)

You've done the research, created amazing copy and added buttons. But now you have to decide what happens after a subscriber clicks "Submit."  There's no real decision here. You redirect them to a Thank You page. 

Keep reading to find out what your favorite entrepreneurs know about Thank You pages that you don't. 

1. Thank You Pages Set Expectations for Subscribers

Whether your visitor is downloading a freebie or signing up for an event, be very clear about what next steps. Your Thank You Page is the perfect place to set expectations, so people know what happens next. 

  • Should they check their email for the download? Then say that.
  • Will you email them everyday at 9 AM during the challenge? Let them know. 
  • Will the replay expire? That would be great to know, right? 

Our favorite Melyssa Griffin let's us know to that we'll receive an email with FREE access to a library of worksheets and downloads.

2. It's The Perfect Place to Convert (Again)

Our favorite entrepreneurs know the Thank You Page is the perfect place to convert again. How can you convert?

SELL YOUR PRODUCTS.

If you have a product that's closely aligned with your freebie, why not encourage subscribers to purchase a comparable paid product rather than settle for the free one?

If you don't have a product or don't want to sell on your Thank You Page, convert subscribers into Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest followers or ask them to join your Facebook community like Caitlin Bacher who invites subscribers to join her Facebook group, Social Boss with Caitlin Bacher.
