Backlinko’s Brian Dean observed conversion rates rise from 0.54% to 4.82% in one day after offering a content upgrade.
This piece recommends marketers should offer bonus content to the readers who have already consumed their articles and are ready to subscribe to the brand’s email list in exchange for a content upgrade.
