How To Create A Squeeze Page That Sucks In Leads

When you go to create a squeeze page, you need to make sure that you have a clear offer for the visitors/prospects who are going to be landing on your site.

The sole purpose of the squeeze page should be to capture leads and nothing else. That means if you want to maximize your conversions, don’t include other distractions on your squeeze page such as Adsense ads or long lists of links to other pages on your site.

The more options you give people, the less likely it is that they will complete the one you want.

This post will give you some tips on what elements you need to include on your site for maximum response.

If you don’t know how to setup your optin page, check out this post first: How To Create A Squeeze Page

Use a Strong Headline to Grab
Their Attention and Keep It…

In order to get people to optin to your lead capture page, you first need to stop and get their attention long enough for them to read your marketing message.

The headline is likely going to be the first thing they see.

  • Your squeeze page headline should be big and bold so that it stands out.
  • It should be benefit driven. Focus on the main benefit that your product/service/report will give to the end user.
  • Decide on your visitor’s biggest problem and how it can be solved, and make these part of the headline.

A good headline will grab their attention and get them reading the rest of your page.

List Benefits That Get Them
Begging To Know More…

Your squeeze page should ideally be getting someone to optin in exchange for more information, or a free report.

Giving away something for free will help increase conversions, but you can also increase them more by building extreme value in the prospects mind.

List out the main benefits that the user will get from opting in.

  • Make it an irresistible offer so that they would be insane to pass up getting the report that you are giving away.
  • Focus on the wants, needs and desires of your prospect. Always let them know what’s in it for them.

Use a Strong “Call to Action”
That Gets Them Scrambling
to Optin…

People often need to be told what to do. This is particularly true on the internet where people are distracted easily and bounce around from site to site, often without any real purpose.

If you want someone to enter their name and email address TELL them to enter it.

  • Repeat the call to action if you need to, but make sure that somewhere on the page you show people what you want them to do.
  • Include arrows or other graphical elements to show people where they need to enter the information.
  • Make the call to action clear. (Again, your squeeze page should only have ONE main call to action i.e. getting the optin)
  • Use a short video on your page, end the video by telling them to optin, include an arrow that shows them where the optin is.
  • Make the end of the video be a live “demo” of how to fill out the form – just record your screen as you do it so there is NO confusion on what needs to be done.

See this post for hints on some of the best squeeze page templates to use.

All of these elements can add up to give you the best possible squeeze page that sucks in leads and gets them salivating for more information!

Are You Making These Marketing Mistakes? (Part1)

This installment is going to begin a 3 part series on what I feel are the 3 worst marketing mistakes that people make. Trust me, there are a lot more than 3, but these 3 are at the very top of my list. First I am going to start with cutting corners in web hosting and domains.

Many people when they first start trying to make a living online immediately begin with the attitude that “I’m broke so I need to use free stuff”.

Well, guess what?

That kind of thinking is going to keep you broke, especially when it comes to web hosting and domain names.

As you know, or probably don’t know, you can actually get your own web site without spending one dime on either web hosting OR a domain name. Absolutely. Just go to Yahoo and get one of those crappy Geocities pages. You’ll end up with some kind of web site that has a domain like this:

http://www.geocities.com/yourname/index.htm

Yeah, I know, seeing your name in there gives you a real great feeling. But that’s about all you’re going to get out of it.

Getting these sites indexed by the search engines is close to impossible. And even if you do get them indexed, do you really think that anybody is going to take you seriously when they see that you can’t even afford to pay for web hosting?

Forget about the fact that these sites look like crap with the forced advertising for Yahoo that you need to do. You’ll be able to count the number of sales you’ll make from these sites on one hand, if that many.

Plus, with free web hosting, you are at the mercy of these sites. You get practically no bandwidth, no disk space and they can take your site away from you at a moment’s notice.

If you’re going to run a professional business online, you need 2 things.

1. Your OWN domain.

2. Professional web hosting.

And if you think these things are expensive, they’re not.

You can get a domain for about $10 a year or less even. Domain hosting you can get for $7-8 a month or less and get more than enough disk space and bandwidth to run a professional business. If you can’t afford that little bit of investment, then quite honestly you have no business being in business.

Bottom line is this. Your potential customers will NOT take you seriously with a Geocities type domain and hosting. This will
result in NO sales and a FAILED business.

So please do yourself a favor. Get yourself your own domain and some professional web hosting.

To YOUR Success,
