How To Create 2-Step Opt-ins In Your Blog Posts Using Thrive Leads

I recently set up a 2-step optin on one of my blog posts which is converting at 11%. Here’s exactly how to set it up.

    Hi David – I don’t have Thrive leads ๐Ÿ™‚ I work with aweber forms. I code them myself. I don’t use aweber’s form creator. You mention:

    > You can even create forms where the person can choose what theyโ€™re most interested in, then pull up a different state depending on their choice. One form can then offer different lead magnets.

    Is this radio buttons? Or different submit buttons? Do you know if the state they pull up can be tagged with aweber’s new tag feature for campaigns, where the tag tells aweber which autoresponse to send for that form. You add this to the form, below the submit button:


    For it to work, each state would need its own unique subscribe form — each one tagged differently — and then all forms can link to the same list or to different lists, because that’s a different input in aweber’s form:


    The nice thing about campaigns is that you don’t need multiple lists any more, when you want to send different autoresponses for different lead magnets that were subscribed to.

      You seriously need to get Thrive Leads, then. You’re doing things the dinosaur way at the moment. ๐Ÿ™‚

      And, no, no radio buttons involved. It is all about button events, as shown in this post. Your default state would have 2 or 3 buttons, for different interests. Each button is assigned to switch to a different state when clicked. Each state then has it’s own opt-in code, which puts them into whatever list segment you want.

    how do we enter raw html into your comment box?

    Hey, David. What happens after the visitor fills in their email address and clicks the send button? What email service is it integrated with, and how does Thrive Leads (1) add them to a list you specify and (2) send out the email with the resource they requested?

    • David Risley says:

      Perhaps I should make another video?

      Thrive Leads can integrate with most email services. I happen to use Drip, but you can use anything else. When you set up the form, you just tell Thrive where to send it. And then the lead magnet is sent to them via email.

  • I’ve always wondered how to do that! This was great. I just set one up and am adding it to several blog posts. Thanks!
