Ever heard the adage “The Money Is In The List”? One crucial component of your list building efforts is your squeeze page. A squeeze page, also known as a lead-capture page or a landing page, is a page that is created with the intention of getting prospects to join our email list, so that we can market our services and products. Usually, a free gift is offered in exchange for their email addresses. This free gift is known as a “freebie”.
Before beginning, we must first get the code for our Opt-in form from our autoresponder service. An opt in form is a form where the visitor must enter their email address, and/or first name to gain access to the free gift, whereas an autoresponder service is a service that helps you automate and regulate the emails that you send to your list. Popular autoresponder services include Aweber, Getresponse, and Mailchimp.
Below Are The Conventional Methods Used To Create A Squeeze Page:
1.) Using HTML
It’s very easy to create a simple page from scratch using free HTML editors such as Kompozer and paid ones such as Dreamweaver. (comes with a 30-day free trial).
