If you’ve just got a new PLR product, and you’re ready to get the Squeeze Page set up, but you’re not sure how to update the squeeze page with Autoresponder code, then read on, we’ll show you exactly how.
What you’ll need:
- You’ll need an HTML editor, in this case I suggest BlueGriffon from their site: http://bluegriffon.org/. The editor is free to download and it’s a WYSIWYG editor, which basically means you can see what the page will look like as you make updates.
- You’ll also need the HTML file you got from your PLR product, if it’s been included that is.
Of course, you can easily create your own in your WordPress site, there are many page editors available that focus specifically on squeeze pages or landing pages.
You can check out Thrive Content Builder, I highly recommend this plugin and have been using it for quite some time now.
Where to start:
Updating the Autoresponder code:
I’m assuming you already have an autoresponder set up. If not, I’d recommend you check out Aweber. They offer a great service and even better customer service, I only have good things to say about Aweber, but you can check out GetResponse too, they’re both great services.
Create a Sign Up Form:
In your autresponder, you’ll need to create a sign up form.
Thank You Page:
You’ll then need to set up your thank you page, in our example we set this to our site: PLRRockStar.com, but you can use your specific thank you page.
Install the Form:
Moving forward you’ll then click on ‘I will install my form’ and then select ‘Raw HTML Version’ and copy the code presented in the box.
You’ll paste this code in the html file you opened in the editor.
Updating the Squeeze Page:
In our example below you’ll notice two sections referring to autoresponder code. You’ll paste the code from your autoresponder as in the example above, and paste it in between these comment sections.
As we’re currently looking at the WYSIWYG editor, selecting the Source Code editor will show us where we need to make the updates.
Simply overwrite any code between these sections with your own autoresponder code.
It’s as simple as that!
Now save your html file and view it in your browser to make sure it looks ok.
It’s always a good idea to test it to make sure the email is correctly captured and that it goes to the thank you page you set up afterwards.
Tip: Make sure to include the download for the ebook you promised, or you’ll have an angry subscriber, and that, nobody wants.
Tip: You could also consider sending them a welcome email with the link again in case they missed it.
A welcome email is a very good opportunity to introduce yourself to your new subscriber.
Update the Squeeze Page Colours and Text:
This could be the end of the article, but I imagine you might want to update the look and feel of the page.
If you want to make any updates to the page itself, update the text or change the colours, or include a logo, you can go ahead and do so very easily within the editor.
Once you’ve downloaded BlueGriffon, or any html editor for that matter (other examples include Notepad++, Kompozer and many more other than Dreamweaver), open the html file you wish to edit as before.
Here you can edit any aspect you with. I’ll illustrate with BlueGriffon as the editor.
Simply click on any element, if its text, click on the text element and make the change you want. If you want to include a picture, you can do so via the ‘include image’ button.
Each element can have a style associated with it. For example, the image shows a few examples of what you can update when it comes to styles.
Now that you’ve updated your page, and it looks good, all you need to do is upload it to your hosting account (HostGator or Godaddy as examples), via the Cpanel > File Manager, and you’re ready to view the page online.
Make sure to create a folder for the squeeze page and to save the html file as index.html. By doing so you’ll ensure that if you type in your site name / folder, the page will appear as it’s the default page for that folder.
I hope this has helped you figure out how to insert your autoresponder code into a squeeze page or landing page. It’s actually quite easy to do once you know how.
