My Favorite Online Marketing Tool of All Time
I remember when I first started trying to build by list online. I spent about a week learning how to make a custom aweber box to put on my website. After studying online marketing for awhile, I learned that I really needed to be creating some dedicated squeeze pages if I really wanted to build my list. For those of you new to the term, a squeeze page, also known as an opt-in page or a landing page is a page on your website that has the sole purpose of collecting email addresses from your subscribers in exchange for some sort of “free gift”.
I can’t even begin to count all the hours I wasted trying to create these kinds of pages on my own. I tried different WordPress plugins, creating custom forms and every month there was a new “bright shiny object” that promised to make the job easier. I bought them all. Some of these products were OK, many of them were a waste of money, but they were all very lacking.
This all changed a couple of years ago when Lead Pages hit the market. The first time I saw this tool, I was sold, and over the past 2 years it has only gotten better, with tons of new features added every year.
In this video, you can see a few of the latest upgrades that will make building your list that much easier.
This feature called LeadBoxes is revolutionary, especially if you have a non WordPress site, like an IIN site. Before this, my recommendation was always for people to build custom html Email optin boxes in whatever email service they used and to create Squeeze pages off of their website. When you watch the video, you can see 3 separate ways you can use these new Lead Boxes to start capturing email addresses on your website today. For a quick demo on my test IIN site, go check out this LINK! I have all 3 techniques setup on the home page. You can use 1 or all of them.
1. Leadbox set to popup when you land on site. In actual practice, you would make the time before this appears longer and there is also an option to not show it for x number of days so you don’t annoy readers.
2. Leadbox set to popup when you try to leave the site. Again, you would not show this every time like I am doing.
3. If you click on the image at the bottom of the page, you will also get the same leadbox, without having to send them to a separate page to collect their email address.
