What is an Optin Page?
An optin page is a focus page or described as a landing page where you collect your visitors’ information such as their name, email address, phone number, and other information you need in exchange for a free value which is usually called a Lead Magnet.
It sometimes can be in a form of a pop-up. Have you ever noticed a pop-up while you are surfing the internet that requires you to provide some of your details and when you do, you receive a free gift? That pop-up is the optin.
An optin page introduces your audience to your funnel. This is important if you are an online marketer, affiliate marketer, MLM and whatever form of online business you are doing. When you are starting up with building your funnel, you will need to build an optin page, give a lead magnet and get people’s information.

Remember the formula for marketing, tha KLT formula; Know, Like, and Trust. You would have to give value, build the relationship, help them trust you so they can finally buy from you.
