I’ve had so many clients and contacts ask me how to make a simple squeeze page without all the fuss of having to integrate other web services that I thought it warranted its own post.
But, before I get into that let’s cover the all-important question:
What’s a squeeze page, and why should you care?
A squeeze page is essentially a landing page or sales page that focuses on one particular thing such as a product, promotion, wait list or giveaway, etc. It’s specifically designed to squeeze people to opt-in with their email addresses to your list. And if you know anything about me you know that I’m ALL ABOUT BUILDING YOUR LIST!
Squeeze pages essentially create a bottle neck on your site.
By removing the navigation you’re getting the visitor to stay on the page longer, which will make them more likely to READ the page, and as a result, opt-in to whatever it is that you’re offering in exchange for that coveted email address. It’s not a sketchy thing at all, and the numbers speak for themselves time and time again when you compare conversion rates on pages with navigation and pages without.
Love them or hate them, they’re extremely effective when it comes to driving opt-ins, and as a person who hated squeeze pages FOR FREAKING EVER I’ve become a believer.
A lot of people use services buy cymbalta cheap like leadpages to create squeeze pages – especially if they aren’t super techy, comfortable with tweaking code, or if they have websites that are difficult to modify and change up layout settings on. But, if you’re a Divi user (which, if you aren’t already, you should be!) it’s extremely simple to create your own squeeze page.
All you have to do is create the page you want to use to drive opt-ins and set the page to a blank page. No, that isn’t going to delete everything from your page! It will remove your navigation from that page only, and BAM! You’ve got yourself a squeeze page!
It’s such a simple solution to squeeze page creation, and if you’ve been depending on services like leadpages, it will save you the money of having to use an independent service to create great looking landing pages.
So again, here’s all you do:
Create your page, design & jazz up the design, add your sign-up form and over there on the right hand side of the page where you see that Page Attributes block, just click on the dropdown menu and select Blank Page.
