And there are many tools out there to help you do this powerfully and successfully.
Some people use a bunch of different plugins or code on the website, but personally I find it all a bit of a mess!
To quickly create sexy landing pages on mine and my customer’s websites I use LeadPages.net.
If you do not know about page builders like LeadPages, then you might want to read my previous review.
But just to give you a quick idea of what it can do, here are the main points:
One of the keys to using LeadPages is that it is so simple for non-technical people. You can make pages in 10 minutes!
Another great thing about LeadPages, is that each month they keep adding new features.
So in this post I wanted to show you what has been happening since my initial review in April.
LeadPages is designed to store leads in your email marketing system (Aweber, MailChimp, GetResponse etc).
But not everyone wants to pay for this kind of service when they are starting out.
Recently, a new option was added to allow you to collect leads/emails in your inbox instead of using an expensive marketing system.
Perfect if you are just starting out or on a budget. Or maybe you just prefer email.
One of the keys to Leadpages is the ability to use proven templates that have been tested by other marketers to collect leads.
When you buy Leadpages you get access to 80+ templates for all the types of pages you need for your website.
A month ago the new Leadpages Marketplace was opened that gives us access to loads of other templates at very low prices.
And one of the first big names offering templates already is Mr Pat Flynn!
So Leadpages is only using the best templates to help us get high coversions.
And you will soon be able to contribute your own as well. You get 100% of the commission from the sale too!
So if you are into creating templates, this could be your chance.
For those already using Leadboxes, you will know how great it can be for adding optin popups to any place on your website.
This is great for contextual giveaways (eg. giving a pdf copy of a blog post) rather than just your standard giveaway in your email list.
These popups can be put on any link, button or image. Which is very handy.
But I always wanted to use timed popups or exit popups with Leadboxes and it was not possible – until now!
With this new feature you can add specific timed popups to any page, or on exit (which is great for getting people leaving your site to give their email).
Check out the video to see how it works. I am using it on my marketing website already.
Another helpful feature the guys at Leadpages released a few months back was the ability to give your customers control of their pages.
You do this by giving them a Leadpages Sub Account, which is a separate area of your account that they can also log into.
You could also use this feature as a way to organise your customer accounts into different areas (one sub account per area) or per customer.
The options are endless.
So for agencies or enterprise users this option is now extremely powerful.
I don’t know specifically what Leadpages has in store for us in the coming months, but the features just keep on coming. And if you missed these in the last few months, now is the time to try them out.
And on top of that, the templates on offer will soon grow dramatically with the option of the Leadpages Marketplace too.
So if you want to learn more about Leadpages, or just get a 30 day Free Trial head on over and check it out.
