How to Build a Squeeze Page That Gets Results

Learn How to Build a Squeeze Page and Generate Leads

Learning how to build a squeeze page is one of those skills that most successful online marketers master in a short period of time.

Why?

Because a well developed squeeze page can deliver a ton of leads for anyone that is building a business online, so it’s pretty important stuff that I’m talking about here. The question for most is, “how do I build a squeeze page?” For others, the question might be, “What the heck is a squeeze page?”

What is a Squeeze Page?

A squeeze page is nothing more than a web page that asks for a name and email address usually in exchange for something that the prospect is looking for. Sometimes the page will provide a video with information about a product that will be delivered once the information (name, email address, phone, etc.) is submitted.

how to build a squeeze page that gets results

The above squeeze or “capture” page is an example of a very simple squeeze page with a video and you need to learn how to build a squeeze page like this one to generate leads.

In the video of the above capture page, I give about a one minute presentation on what I am offering, in this case free online marketing training. People that are interested (my target audience) may submit their information and in return, I will send them information about how to get the marketing training that they are looking for.

How to Build a Squeeze Page Using Simple Web Tools

People new to the Internet and new to promoting an online business want to create capture pages that they can promote their business, once they learn how quickly they can generate leads with them and while I could sit here and write a complete eBook explaining a couple of different ways to build capture pages, but…

…you can use a very simple program to start promoting a business opportunity right away, this program is called All in One Profits and for $10 bucks a month you can generate as many squeeze/capture pages that you require and many more to test out. Within a very short period of time you will create a capture page that actually starts drawing in many leads per month.

This is the program we at the Elite Marketing Systems Group uses to teach people, new and experienced, how to start generating their own leads because buying leads very seldom works.

Now Start Building Your Pages

I can give you all of the resources you need to generate all of the leads you will ever need to promote your business. I can show you how to generate these leads without calling people on the phone, without harassing your friends and family and without feeling like a loser.

What I can’t do is take the action for you. You must take the proverbial “bull by the horns,” get out there and start creating your pages, get the domain name and forward it to your pages and then start promoting that link in as many places and as many ways as possible!

Learning how to build a squeeze page is one of those game changing skills that every marketer needs to have in their toolbox, but it ultimately is up to you to take the next step, get the training and move your business efforts to the next level.

Are You Being Rewarded For Your Time and Efforts?

Reward Equals Success – Take the Little Ones and Move Forward!

Are you being rewarded for your time and efforts in terms of building your blog or promoting your online business? If you aren’t, chances are that you are thinking about quitting if you haven’t already.

I just read a cool article on Social Triggers about rewards. In an article about why most bloggers fail, Derek Halpern discusses some of the psychological factors about why people quit their blogs and one of the biggest reasons? A lack of reward.

You see people aren’t really all that afraid of work, especially when it comes to building their own business, but they still are going to have to have some type of a reward associated with busting their butts on their website.

Without a reward it becomes very tough to continue with your efforts.

If you are not getting any results from your efforts and I’m talking weeks of poor results, not a few days, then you are likely in need of a change. If something isn’t working then move onto a technique that does bring the results you are looking for.

Anyway, I hope you like the podcasat….see you on the next one…

…and

See you at the top!

This podcast deals with how solving other people’s problems equals your online success and I have found this to be quite true.

What’s the number one way to become successful online? Solve the problems that other people have.

As an online entrepreneur and mentor, solving other people’s problems equals your online success especially when you are talking about any sort of business opportunity that requires coaching and mentoring – and what online business doesn’t?

People come online with all sorts of expectation, many unrealistic, but soon learn that there are many different skills that they must acquire and become proficient with to succeed online. Many people just quit, but many more decide to at least “give it a try.”

While I’m not really into “giving it a try” all that much – I’m an advocate of doing – solving other people’s problems in terms of helping them learn how to set up a blog, generate some traffic, create capture pages, etc. is a perfect way for you to be able to use the skills that you currently possess and help out a budding online entrepreneur.

“I’m not an expert though. What do I do? How can I help?”

I get these questions quite often…and believe it or not, I used to feel this way. I used to wonder how I could show people how to generate an income when I had not found my own success, but I kept on writing and creating content and eventually I learned how to get on the first page of Google and quite often found the number one position for my key phrases.

So is the answer to “fake” your success….no, it’s not (honesty really is the best policy here.)

The solution to this problem is very simple. Those individuals that have a challenge or a problem are the folks you need to send to someone that DOES have the information and does have the experience to be considered at least a proficient teacher if not an expert.

People that struggle with how to market their business online can go to the Elite Marketing Systems Group and learn some simple methods for building capture pages and posting these pages to generate leads. These folks can promote their own business or the EMSG system – either way a person can start generating leads almost right away.

Training You Need to Succeed Online

Are you getting the training you need to succeed online?

A lot of folks are coming online with a perception that generating an income online is going to be simple and that you don’t really need to work that hard, but these men and women are going to find a surprise waiting for them called reality.

What is the Training You Need to Succeed Online?

Getting the specific training you need to succeed online can be a dicey proposition.

Why?

Because there are so m

any different business models and businesses in general, trying to find a “one size fits all” sort of training doesn’t always work.

You can join a business that will require that you learn how to recruit people, like a network marketing business, or you can start a business that requires you perform a lot of research. The training you need to succeed online may vary quite a bit from one business to another.

The Training You Need to Succeed Online Doesn’t Have to Be Complicated

If you have been online for any length of time, you may have noticed that there are some common strategies that just about all businesses use and ironically enough some of these are very simple.

One of the techniques that I use when training folks to market online is a capture page/email technique.

What is this technique? It goes something like this:

  1.  Create a capture page for your business
  2. Develop an email campaign that you attach to your capture page
  3. Post links EVERYWHERE!

This is all there is to it.

With the right tools and about a week to put it all together, you can start generating leads right away. The great thing about this particular method is that, other than posting the links, your efforts are on auto-pilot…at least the email portion.

And don’t just think your emails need to be all text, mix it up. Use links to videos, podcasts, articles…whatever it may be, pack information in your emails, information that offers value.

Getting Your Online Education Will Provide Big Returns

The training you need to succeed online, the education you obtain, is going to help you succeed online over and over and over.

Many don’t realize this, but marketers with the developed skills can generally find a product, service or business opportunity and within a few weeks or a couple of months start generating income from whatever it is that they started marketing. This is how powerful getting the right training can be.

Everyone coming to the Internet world is going to need this knowledge. No one comes here with the skill set necessary to go out and make a lot of money – we all need training of one sort or another and those that embrace this idea are already a long ways down the road to online success.

How to Recruit People Into Your MLM Business

how to recruit people into your mlm businessMost people want to know how to recruit people into your mlm business and there are some simple things that you can do to make that a reality, starting with just being yourself.

We’ve all heard the saying…

“People join people, not businesses.”

To a certain extent, this is exactly true. I’m not going to tell you that businesses don’t matter at all, but for the most part your opportunity, no matter how great, no matter what the product is just another business out there promoting themselves as the greatest biz op on the planet and it may be, but that isn’t what is going to drive traffic to your site or, more importantly, generate leads that want to sign up with you and your opportunity.

So what does?

How to Recruit People Into Your MLM Business by being You

You.

Yep, you are potentially the best thing to ever happen in terms of recuiting people into your business and your organization. You are also the biggest obstacle to your business as well.

How’s that?

First, I want you to understand that you are unique. There is no other person out there like you and the good news is that there doesn’t have to be because you are good enough! There is no need for you to go out there and develop some sort of slick, super-sales-guy persona, as a matter of fact you should only do that if you want to scare people away!

You probably aren’t into that, are you?

One of the biggest problems with the Internet today that you and all marketers must overcome is that perspective that many coming online have and that is the “everything is a scam” perspective.

I always get that question, “Is this a scam?” – I really want to tell them that, “Yes, I’m afraid it is a scam. Now give me your credit card info!”

Probably wouldn’t work.

What you are going to have to do – and I don’t care if you are recruiting people into your mlm biz or are building a team of Internet zombies – you must start developing a relationship with people, you must gain the respect and trust of folks looking for information.

You will also need to start developing that credibility and that must happen long before you actually become any kind of an expert.

But how do you get experience without having any experience? It’s a bit of a catch 22, I know, but it is possible.

I’m not saying that you have to show up and know everything. As a matter of fact, being “normal” is probably one of the things that will attract some folks. These are the people looking for other “real” and “normal” people. This is why I promote that whole just be yourself slogan.

People need to relate to you and while many will not, you are looking for those that will and be ready with content and information that these folks need and want.

How to Recruit People Into Your MLM Business: The Formula

So here is the sure fire method for recruiting people into your business.

  1. Create content that people are looking for – don’t forget your keyword research!
  2. Make sure that you deliver value with everything you create
  3. Provide information to people for free – find out what their problem is and give them the solution
  4. Be consistent
  5. Be patient

There are many different ways to create and deliver content. You can write articles, create videos, record audio files for .mp3 downloads, write eBooks or whatever it is that you are interested in. My advice is to pick one or two methods and jump into the fire!

Remember to be yourself. People need someone that they can relate to and you could be that person. Believe me, I’ve tried this both ways and my slick sales approach seldom worked, but my “home body, average joe” pitch works quite well, plus I don’t have a problem going to sleep at night just being me.

See you at the top!
