I am working on a website project that pulls in data/post from third-party resources and we are compensated for each referral to their site.
Due to our content agreement, we are unable to require a visitor to register prior to the referral (i.e. click on content, register, then forwarded) so we are trying to think of different methods of capturing leads/registrations. One idea is to create a login wall that forces all visitors to register for an account prior to accessing the aggregated content, but we have big concerns that our bounce rate is going to be through the roof and we'll lose the referral and registration. Does anyone have experience with this sort of sales funnel?
What are some best practices for user acquisition that is not email/content motivated or does not apply to a discount or free swag? Thank you for your help!
