Do you know The Fastest way to Make a MiniSite?

by 4 comments

I tried building my sales minisite this morning.

I wasnt able to complete it. I think I'm missing some piece of the puzzle. Here's what I did.

All of the sites I will mention here is not related to me in anyway. Though I signed up to them to get the freebies.

1. I looked for a free minisite template (DIYMINISITE.COM)

They provided a decent minisite, though the header graphics is in
PSD format. Since I don't own photoshop and the download trial is
about 500 mb I wasnt able to edit the header graphics.

I tried a free header graphics editing program by a fellow warrior but the
program doesnt save and when loading a template it produces an error.

In the end, since it was just a sample I decided to do with the generic
header graphics provided by DIY.

2. I looked for a good and convincing landing page.
The second step I did was to look for a convincing landing page and
copied its contents. I reworded it though and added some of my
sales pitch.

3. I havent added a sign-up page for autoresponder
I already signed up for an account in getresponse but I didn't
came to the point of adding an email capture form.

This one I could get instructions from getresponse

4. I tried putting in a paypal or alert pay button.
Both payment processors would only allow you to put
a merchant button if you upgraded your account. I
am still on a free account so are there any alternatives?

5. Once I put up the minisite. How would I or where would I place the
files (ebooks) for download and how to design a download page.

Sorry for a long post it's just coz I really want to learn the setting up of infrastructure in IM.

So far I already now SEO, BUM Marketing. I feel my minisite setup skill needs improvement.

Thanks and would highly appreciate answers.

    Have you tried using a good WYSIWYG program and cut and paste the contents of a mnisite template, make some mods and your off to the races.

    If you don't have skills with the header graphics or the source code skip it till you do

    I have been doing this, I just made a new site yesterday with cut and paste, made a few mods to fit the theme, site was made less then1/2 hour.

    I found a promising WYSIWYG editor out there called

    I was using the prior version , this one should be better.

      Hi sparrow,

      First, thank you.

      I'm also using kompozer and that's exactly what I did early this AM.

      The part I am missing are:

      1. how will I do a download page? where would I place the pdf?

      2. For payment processors, are there processors that will allow you to post their button even if you don't have a merchant account.

      Again, Thanks

    The templates don't require you to edit them using Photoshop, you can just add the text using any HTML editor.

    Good luck.
