If your website is asking your prospect, “Are you new here?” please make it stop.
If you’ve ever gone to any kind of house of worship
There is nothing more counterproductive
Or just plain unfriendly
Than the phrase, “Are you new here?”
Because more than likely
The person you are asking that to
Nope, been comin’ here for 20 years. But thanks.
See if this helps:
If you want repeat visitors to your website
Consider taking down the pop-up
That’s basically saying to people
That you’re hoping will become good friends:
Who are you again?
Ask them to sign up for your email
And offer them a nice Welcome Letter
That gets a really, really, really big reply rate.
And a reply from a prospect
Is not something
You will soon forget.
