18 Source of Traffic Free Offer Squeeze Page Process

19 Creating a Powerful Squeeze Page A squeeze page is a one-page website specifically designed to entice people to give you their email address. Providing consistently great content in your messages is key to turning your subscribers into raving fans. Before you can develop that relationship, however, you have to get them to subscribe.

20 5 Basic Elements of a Squeeze Page 1. Create a strong headline. 2. Have a simple, clear design. Text: Create a simple, mostly white page with a table border, headline, a few bullet points, and opt-in form, with a clear concise call to action. Video: Great option and usually will provide higher conversion. Graphics: Keep simple and test. 3. List the most important benefits (not features). 4. Have a prominent opt-in form. 5. Have a clear & strong call to action.

21 I Only Have 3 Seconds To Grab Your Attention You have to grab readers, convert them into prospects, and maintain their attention all in a matter of seconds. If you do not achieve this quickly, efficiently and effectively, people will simply click away without giving it much thought. Your efforts are wasted

22 Headline A headline has two purposes only: Grab attention Compel further reading. Develop your headline by using the most important benefits of the offer. At its essence, a compelling headline must promise some kind of benefit for the reader in trade for the valuable time it takes to read more. It must grab the readers attention. The true purpose of a headline is not to summarize or advertise the website.

25 The Amazing Hook The hook must be amazing. Formulate a hook by researching exactly what your customer would want if you delivered the perfect product.

27 Use Verbs That Direct Your Visitor You will do well if you paint a vivid picture in the mind of your visitor by the use of action words. The more vivid the picture is, the more compelling the headline will be. For example, a headline like: Zoom Past Your Competition! will be better than: Discover How Your Competition Stays Ahead! Examples include headlines that begin with the words Earn, Discover, Find, Read, Get, See, Claim, Visit, Join, Sign up, etc.

28 Simple and Clean Design Each element of a squeeze page has its place, but the key is to create a professional and visually appealing page without being distracting. You want people to sign up, not to be in awe of your graphics. Create a simple, mostly white page with a table border, headline, a few bullet points and opt-in form, with a clear and concise call to action. No banners, no adsense, no outside links, no pop ups. You should include a privacy policy and contact information. It helps build trust and people expect to see it Make sure your links open up in a new window.

29 Bulleted List of Main Benefits Answer their question, Whats In It For Me? Give visitors a reason to subscribe. Benefits let your visitors know that there is a solution to their problem. Not only is there a solution to their problem, but you have the solution.

30 Opt-In Form Opt-in form – Needs a way to take action. Above the fold – Put the opt-in form in a prominent location. Long squeeze page – Place one opt-in form above the fold, and the other below. Keep it short and sweet – Only ask for the information you need most!

31 Clear and Concise Call to Action The final step in creating a squeeze page is getting the visitor to take action. You have to make them act and you need to create a sense of urgency. Tell them more than once, and do so clearly. Their purpose is to get what you are offering, and your purpose is to get their information.

32 Tell the visitor exactly what action you want them to take. Make it very clear and concise. Keep the choices simple: either signing up or clicking away. Be specific. Call To Action button: Avoid SUBMIT NOW! Example: Yes… Send Me My Free Video Course!
