How To Create Squeeze Landing Pages

Squeeze or Landing pages also know as “Splash” pages are very popular right now and intended to do one thing and only one thing.  Cultivate, Capture, and Convert contacts or leads into clients or buyers of your products and services.

How to create an individual or single landing squeeze page

There are many ways you can do this, but it depends on how much time, effort and money you want to spend producing something that is effective and works.  A Squeeze page should be simple, non-distracting, and offer enough value to make viewers take your suggested call-to-action.  Less is more, short is sweet, and visual it critical.

You ONLY have 7-10 squeeze seconds to impress, here’s a sample “Squeeze”


I found a site that allows you to create these pages called InstaPage.com  Now if you want a custom public sub-domain URL, it will cost you about 5 bucks a month, (or you can use your own domain name) but if your splash/landing page is “squeezing” you business, that’s cheaper than a happy meal at McDonald’s and you’ll be busy converting so many clients you won’t have time to consider having lunch at the golden arches.

Full access and use of this site building splash/squeeze pages is FREE, you only start paying the $5.00 monthly when you go pubic.  They also have a rev share program available to referring users.

Instapage.com has made the process of setting up and creating these much sought after landing and splash squeeze pages easy and fast.  It’s all drag and drop and no real technical programmer or developer skills are needed.  There is a small learning curve of about 10 minutes but after that you’ll be up and running in no time and setting up conversion traps all across the web.

If you’re ready to create your own splash page, landing page, squeeze page, or whatever you want to call them, visit INSTAPAGE.com and create your own.  I set up a sample just to see if it actually works.  Not 45 minutes after I created it, I received my first order.  I’m sold on the idea and concept, and now I’m sold on InstaPage too.

Squeeze pages can save you and consumers time, cut costs, and they convert.

Be sure to include the following on your squeezing pages:

A stellar title, an amazing Call-To-Action, some phenomenal graphics, a few unbelievable but real testimonials, and some compelling video or audio to bring your page to life.  Don’t forget to add a capture or contact form and maybe a “call to action” button on your squeeze page.  Some folks that are using these efficiently have also told me that placing your phone number in the upper right corner works effectively.
