Web hosting I personally use:
Web hosting I Personally Use For Fast Pages and Security
You might ask, why pay $29 a month when you can get cheapo hosting somewhere else?
Because I’ve been down the cheapo hosting route and I’ve paid hundreds a month for a private server.
And both have problems and challenges, and you don’t know it until lose data or get infected or lose a site. And no matter how much you say it won’t happen to you . . .it can and there’s a strong likelihood that it will.
Web page builder I personally use: Web page builder I personally use
This is why I like Beaver Builder: because it’s really, really easy to create any page you want in minutes, on the fly. You don’t have to hunt for a theme that does exactly what you have in mind . . . you can do it yourself in minutes.
Here’s a video showing you how easy it is: How to Use Beaver Builder to Create a Web Page Fast (Example of me creating a squeeze page in 10 minutes)
How to Create a Squeeze Page:
- Use Beaver Builder and do it the way I just showed you in the above video: Web page builder I personally use
OR: 2) Use instabuilder and there are pre-programmed squeeze pages you can use as templates: Instabuilder – easiest and most efficient squeeze page builder I know of
OR: 3) Use any other tool you ALREADY pay for like clickfunnels, optimizepress, leadpages, etc.
But my recommendation is to NOT start paying for those services if you aren’t already, you don’t need them, I don’t use them. Not that they are bad – but that you can do everything much more simpler 🙂
How to Create the Giveaway for Your Squeeze Page:
Write a 5+ page doc teaching how to do what you teach. Don’t worry about including too much – if you can include everything you know in 5+ pages, you need to go back to school! Seriously, don’t worry about teaching too much . . . the more you teach in the doc (giveaway) the more they will think you will teach in your 6 lesson training program!
Here are examples of my own giveaways:
How to Create a Coaching Program in 48 Hours
12 Week Sample Email Campaign (notice this is copy and paste style from something I personally do)
Also . . .you can use a youtube video as a giveaway, if you want, like this:
How to Plan Your Day (note this is an effective strategy for getting more youtube views)
Note how they go immediately to a download page, the download page is clear and easy to understand what to do.
Some folks think the squeeze page should make it hard for someone to like you, the squeeze page is like a first date: it should be your best foot forward, it should easy, easy for someone to understand and access your giveaway:
How to Outline Your Product:
Step 1: What are the 5-7 primary steps to doing what you teach? Write these out in outline form, just like I am doing in this lesson.
Step 2: Make a new lesson page for each of the 5-7 steps, just like THIS is lesson 1 of 6 (note these are placeholder lessons, they will contain nothing at first. You will add to them one lesson at a time, just like this lesson) You can watch this video to see how I created THIS lesson outline: Video of me creating THIS lesson outline
Step 3: Determine how you are going to teach the material. This lesson has a recorded component. You can record your lessons, or you can write them. This is an example of a written lesson: link
Step 3: Add supporting documents and links. Just like you’ve seen me do here. So for example, if you teach karate, you might go to youtube and find a video of someone doing 100 pushups instead of recording your own. You might write a 5 page guide to something you are teaching, and convert it to a pdf. So: add in all supporting documents. Notice I am doing this by creating placeholders, THEN add the links (here is a video of me doing that: (this video I am currently recording)
Step 4: Do this for all 5-7 lessons. Your product is now complete. Yes, it IS this easy.
Download rescuetime: Rescue Time
Keep a 15 minute diary (every 15 minutes for all week, write down what you are doing during that 15 minutes. Add up all the time for each thing you do at the end of the week, to see how you actually use your time.
One final thing, if you don’t have an autoresponder, you need one.
I personally use infusionsoft but it’s an advanced program, for what we are doing here I recommend Aweber or MailChimp
To finish your squeeze page, just create a list or campaign in your autoresponder, then copy and paste the web form code into your squeeze page.
