Permission Success

Published by on december 26, 2006 at 4:56 e m

Today my email inbox is so full that it is not an alternative to hit the subscribe button even if I would like to read one more newsletter. I just don’t have the time for it. Why can’t they offer me a solution that I can take it step by step to become a full subscriber?
When I order my newspaper I can try it for 3-6 mounts ore and then if I don’t like it I can cancel it. This is a smart way to get new consumers that are a little interested and involved in their newspaper. But with email newsletter it is only a 100% subscription I can find. Why not ask me if I would like to have 1-3 ore 3-10 newsletter as a test period, and then send me a question if I like to take the next step. In this way I could subscribe to a lot more newsletters and still have the felling of controlling inbox. I call this “Permission Success” and it is based on sales mixed with permission marketing.

Is there any examples of a good subscribe stair for newsletters?
