I'm going to have a small box on my website where visitors can input their email address to subscribe to my website newsletter. It looks like this, and will have a light text placeholder in the box where users enter their email.
Does it make a difference what the placeholder is, as far as what the user does? Also, what placeholder should be used? Should it be a generic one like
firstname.lastname@example.org, or should it be related to my domain name? Also, does using the term
domain.com seem confusing for some users, and if it does, what should I use for a generic email address?
