How to create a lead capture page

A lead capture page or a squeeze page is web page with some relevant content that will entice people to give you their name and email address in exchange for some valuable information.

For this is example I will be using a PLR ebook called Safelist Marketing Tactics by Jerry Iannucci. I was clicking for credits the other day and an ad for this ebook caught my attention. I signed up, downloaded the ebook and I was excited with what I had just found. Since most of my subscribers and blog visitors are quite familiar with safelists I thought it would be something I could share with you and the perfect product to use for this demonstration, so you can copy the same system that I am about to show you and use it to build your list.

I recommend that you download and ready this ebook. What I am about to show you is just an example of what you can do and you will find a lot of tools and tips inside Safelist Marketing Tactics that  you can use to design your own lead capture pages.

At the end of this you will have your own lead capture page just like this one: http://www.andersongoncalves.com/squeeze/safelisttactics

Before we start make sure you have the following tools in place:

– Your Own Domain and Hosting Account
– Autoresponder
– HTML Editor
– FTP client program

Here is where you can get all these tools if you don’t have them yet:

– Your own domain, hosting and autoresponder all in one place

– HTML editor

When you have all the tools and tools above you can download the Zip file below with the ebook and the template files that we are going to use later to set up our page. Save and unzip this file in your computer.

Now that we have all the basic ingredients handy let’s roll up our sleeves!

I recorded this video to give you a hands on demo how to do this:

1 – Edit the lead capture page with your details and opt-in form

Load NVU and click on File / Open File. Go to the directory where you unzipped the files, locate index.htm and click on Open.

You need to replace my name where it says “- Brought to you by Anderson Goncalves” and my website at the footer.

I am not going into “how to create an opt-in form” because that may vary depending on which autoresponder you are using. If you are using GVO eResponder that’s a very simple and easy thing to do and you can go here if you need instructions on how to do that. I am going to show you where you need to paste your form code.

Still on NVU click on the “Source” tab at the bottom of the screen and locate this portion of the text:

<form method=”post”
action=”http://www.gogvo.com/subscribe.php”><input
name=”Campaign” value=”Safelist Tactics” type=”hidden”><input
name=”FormId” value=”16003″ type=”hidden”><input
name=”AffiliateName” value=”andersong” type=”hidden”>
<table align=”center”>
<tbody>
<tr>
<td>Name:</td>
<td><input
name=”FullName” type=”text”></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Email:</td>
<td><input
name=”Email” type=”text”></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td colspan=”2″
align=”center”> <input
value=”YES! Let Me Download Now!” type=”submit”></td>
</tr>
</tbody>
</table>
<img
src=”http://www.gogvo.com/show_form.php?id=16003″> </form>

This is the portion you are going to replace with your autoresponder form code!

When you are done click on the “Normal” tab to check if your form is showing up correctly.

Everything looks Ok?! Then click on the “Save” button and close NVU.

Product Review: Traffic Bailout

Watch the video and read the post below to see everything that Traffic Bailout has to offer you!

Traffic Bailout is a new site that says it guarantees more web visitors and online advertising with very little effort or cost. More importantly, it promises higher CONVERSIONS–signups and sales. So I decided to put it to the test…

My first impression was the site looks professional and clean, with an attractive look and feel. It is easy to read and understand. Joining the site was easy and painless–they do offer 2 upgrade options but they are not required to gain the benefits.

The Members Area is very well laid out and intuitive–I could figure out what to do after only a few minutes and was able to get up and running in less than 5 minutes. Inside the site, you create links and ads–the links you simply enter any URL links you use into the generator and it transforms them into “Traffic Bailout” links. You create ads for anything you want to promote using the Traffic Bailout Ad Generator, which is very easy to use. You can create as many links and as many ads as you like. And they are organized in a logical way–links are displayed in the order you create them but also your 5 most recent links appear on the main page for quick reference. Also, since the link generator is the tool you’ll use most, it is also right at the top of the main page when you login. Very smart!

After you’ve created at least 1 link and 1 ad you can start to generate traffic. Just use and promote the new Traffic Bailout link instead of the original source link you had. Every time the Traffic Bailout link is clicked, the page loads followed by a small ad window in the lower right corner. It displays 3 ads PLUS an image with your affiliate link that goes back to Traffic Bailout. So if anyone clicks the Traffic Bailout image they see the site, and if they signup they become your referral. It’s a great viral feature because you can build referrals without even trying to just by using the site.

Now every time the ad window displays (your Traffic Bailout links get clicked) you earn credits that get YOUR ad displayed in the ad windows when other members’ links get clicked. So the more clicks, the more times your ads get displayed.

And this works virally–meaning as you make referrals into Traffic Bailout (either by promoting it or just using it and visitors click the Traffic Bailout image on the ad window to join) you also earn ad credits on THEIR link clicks. And this works up to 5 levels deep. So you can create a massive amount of free ad views and web traffic by referring others to Traffic Bailout also.

I didn’t get to test the full effect of a big downline yet (I just got the tool) but I can tell you the rest of the site works exactly as stated–my links got clicked, I earned credits, and my ads got displayed. Traffic Bailout even tracked my results so I know how many clicks and how many ad displays. That was an impressive unadvertised extra feature.

There is one more benefit and feature which might be the best of them all–downline emailing. You can email your downline with offers, promotions, or whatever you like, and here is where Traffic Bailout really shines. They took time to make the emailing often enough that it’s valuable as a user, but no so often that it’s a burden to your downline. But the best part about this feature (and actually the credit earning too) is that it tells you exactly how long until you can mail again. Now THAT’s cool.

Overall I have to say I am impressed with Traffic Bailout. It is simple yet powerful, and delivers on its promises. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to increase traffic and advertising.
