What is a Squeeze Page?

A squeeze page or landing page is designed to capture opt in email addresses from potential subscribers.  The goal in mind is to convince someone to enter their email address, you can do this by providing something for free.  The subscriber will need to enter their email to have access to this free content or item in exchange for them giving you their email.  A persons email address is gold for anyone as it is free advertising for future products and services.

 

Why Is It So Valuable?

A personal email address is one of the most if not the most sought after personal pieces of information as you can directly message anyone.  A lot of people think Facebook and Twitter is valuable, they are but not on the same level as a personal email.  With social media you have to pay the social media company money so you can advertise to those people.  With email addresses you don’t have to pay, once they have signed up to your list you have the opportunity to send anything you please to them.

Don’t Spam or Just Sell!!

The easiest way to gain and lose an email address is to spam the subscriber with offers and useless content which is unrelated to them as the email subscriber can unsubscribe from your list just as easily as they subscribed and probably never subscribe to you again.

 

How To Create A Squeeze Page Set by Step Guide

For this example I will be using the subject Weight loss, Lead Pages for the squeeze page and linking with a list on Aweber.

Here is the other post I did which shows you how to set up an autoresponder series which you can link to this squeeze page. >> How To Create an Email List and Auto Responder Series For Kindle with Aweber

 

What Do You Need?

To make a squeeze page there are three things your need, something to give away, a sign up form and a squeeze page.  In this post I show you exactly how you can create a professional looking squeeze page.

 

Master Resale Rights

You will need PLR book as a free give away to include in your squeeze page.  I use Master Resale Rights, I use them for all of my free books for my Kindle promotions.

 

First search for the subject you would like the PLR book on.

Find the PLR book you would like and click ‘Add to Cart’
