I'm looking for a site where a noob can make some landing pages. Preferably with low cost hosting. Any ideas?

Greg

Well there's a several options for landing pages, but it really depends on what you're promoting and you're trying to do. There's splash pages, squeeze pages, landing pages, etc. Feel free to PM me and perhaps I can guide you further.

Maybe you could briefly explain the different types and the benefits of each of them.
I'm sure this would be valuable information to other members as well. smile.gif

johny,
Thanks for the info. I'm a noob at sites and at doing this for the first time. I'm looking to do this as cheaply as possible to start.

Question: some of the links you gave me are for blogs. I'm looking to make landing pages. How does a blog help me? Thanks.

Greg

OK let me try ti keep this as simple as possible for the OP.

There are basically 3 major types of landing pages which are splash pages, squeeze pages and sales pages. Here's a basic description of them in a nutshell.

Splash Page: An introductory page serving as a lead-in to your actual landing page. The splash page usually contains catch images or animation or a short message. Just think of it like a short preview to the actual movie i.e. your website.

Pros:

- Can catch visitors attention quick, especially quick surfers like in traffic exchanges

- Can "prime" a person before they are redirected to your actual website, which may heighten their perception of your site

Cons:

- It is a block between your visitor and your "actual" landing page, so some visitors may bounce or leave your splashpage without clicking through to your site

- Some people just may not like them and they don't tend to get indexed by search engines


====


Squeeze Page: This is a page designed with the sole purpose of "squeezing" contact info from your visitor like name, email etc.


Pros:

- Great way to filter out interested and serious prospects to build your list

- Strategy can be used for marketing even if you don't have a website; you can communicate with your audience by email. However, it's would be a plus if you have your own website too.


Cons:

- Some visitors won't opt to give their personal information

- Typically it is a block between your actual website and/or offer, so some visitors may not ever see what you have to offer if they don't opt-in.


Sales Page: Just like it sounds. A page designed to sell a product or service. It is usually long, informative and covers all the features & benefits of your offer. There is no holding back here; you want your visitor to buy! Although a salespage is long, it is good to have various options for your visitor to click through and buy and various points.


Pros:

- Can sell and make money!


Cons:

- Some people won't buy

- Lot's of people hate reading salespages, especially long ones even if they're necessary



The above is just a brief guideline off the top of my head. There may be other important pros, cons, features and benefits that I haven't covered here. But this is basically key things you need to know about the different types of landing pages.


Building Landing Pages:

It's always best to have full control over your landing pages/websites by purchasing your own domain name and hosting. Then you can build webpages and simply upload them to your server. Your hosting provider can instruct you further on this.

If you don't have the funds or just don't want to spend any money at this time, then yes, you can try doing free landing pages although they are not reliable and can be deleted at any time. You can attempt to build free landing pages on sites like Squidoo, blogger.com, Hubpages, wordpress.com, weebly, etc.

multimastery,
Thanks for that good info. I'm going to keep posting here for the benefit of other readers. If you need me to contact you via PM, just let me know.

This what i want to do. Build a squeeze page to build up my e-mail list for a few programs. I am a noob so I want to do this at a fee site first and then work my way up from there. I'm looking to build a page with a picture, some key phrases and then capture their info. I will autoresponder them from there. Also, I have a few domains already that I can redirect these landing pages to.

Does this sound like the right steps? You had mentioned a few pages I can use from free landing pages. Which 1 or 2 should i begin with? Thanks.

Greg

Yes sounds good to me to capture names and build a captive audience to market to whenever you want to, great asset! thumbup(1).gif
As far as the free platforms to build landing pages, you might want to try that weebly.com The others are good too and you can try them as well, but they tend to delete one-off pages quick, especially blogger. But in the past I have tested creating free landing pages with weebly and they stuck! However, be advised that the free version of weebly will say it at the bottom with words like "get a free website", so if you're marketing to the internet marketing niche crowd , then this might not fly over well because internet marketers are very savvy and tend not to respect someone marketing with a free site. But for general niches you probably can get away with it because all they want is to do is find what they're looking for.

Greg, maybe it is worth mentioning that you already have a blog, which is hosted with your own domain. And that you are using wordpress already smile.gif
It's just that its a jungle out there and finding the easiest way to make these extra pages is not the easiest task. Noob ways!
