    Umm... I can take a wild guess on what converts more, but I want to hear it from you guys...

    I'm in a little dilemma here and don't know what to do

    So I'm making a 'seduction website'
    Well... To make the point short... I need an opt-in

    So I either do

    a) In exchange of your e-mail + name, you get a free ebook
    b) In exchange of your e-mail + name, you get on my subscription list

    For me:

    A: [negative]
    - I need to write the ebook
    - I need to make sure the ebook is good, otherwise they wouldn't want to do anything with my website anymore
    - I'll need to write about 170 'e-mails' which will be sent out every 2-3 days

    A: [positive]
    + Once I get there e-mail, I don't really have to follow them from the start, I can just let it go, and the list will keep building up

    B: [negative]
    - I'll need to write about 170 'e-mails' which will be sent out every 2-3 days
    - People might not like the whole idea behind 'free subscription' because it might be all spam
    - I'll need to make 170 e-mails ready to be sent out the second the site launches

    B: [positive]
    + *sighs* ... I don't even know

    Guys, help me out here... What should I do?:rant:
