Wordpress Squeeze Page Options???

Hey ...

Been out of the affiliate game for a bit. About to run an offer on Bing. Does anyone know of a simple option for creating a clean Wordpress blog with a separate squeeze page that has zero leaks?

A lot of the options I have come across either have a busy (ugly) blog ... or the squeeze page/lander has leaks ... (Header menus, etc)

I need to keep it ranking in Google (hence the blog) but I also need the clean squeeze page to run paid Bing traffic to it.

Thanks!

P.S. I used to use Thesis back in the day ... but mine is way out of date and I don't want to upgrade to new one. But something like that - Thesis back in the day - was able to have both a really clean and simple blog (good for on page SEO) ...

AND also have a separate lander that had no leaks.

    One alternative for a squeeze page is to create a blank page in WordPress - then there are no page "leaks," as you call them. It's easy to do regardless of the WP template you choose to use. With a blank page (no header, no footer, no sidebar, etc) you can simply add you headline, "benefit" bullet points, product image, opt-in box, and whatever else you want. If you end up with leaks, it's because you put them there.

    Here's how to create a totally blank page:

    Copy and paste the following six lines of code into Notepad or an HTML editor:


    <?php
    /**
    * Template Name: Blank Page
    */
    the_post(); the_content();
    ?>


    Save the file as "blankpage.php" (no quotes)

    Use your FTP program (or "File Manager" in the cPanel) to find the WP theme you are currently using on your web site and upload the "blankpage.php" file to the /wp-content/themes/twentysixteen folder (or whatever your theme name might be).

    The "blankpage" template will now show up in your "template" dropdown list on the new page menu.

    That's all there is to it!

    Good luck to you,

    Steve

      Excellent Steve. Agreed on suggestion. It doesn't get any cleaner, simple and custom tailored. I just cleaned up my blog last week and switched to a VPS. Minimalist and lightning fast, not quite like a clear squeeze page but directs my readers to do only a few things.

    There is a plugin that would work best for what you want to accomplush here.

    It comes with a Theme as well.

    It is called Profit Builder. Just google it and take a look at it.

    I'm sure you will love this tool and will see the potential.

    Cool! Thank you Steve! I'll give that a try... I take it that I can then add some HTML in there to create the page, right?

    Interesting, though pricier than what I want right now. Maybe later.

    Hey Bizopboost: This looks interesting. The funny thing is that I found TWO different options here:

    wpoptinelite DOT com
    wpoptinsplugin DOT com

    The first one goes to a PayPal link, the second one to JVZoo.

    Which one is the one you would recommend?

    Thanks!

      Correct WW, you can add anything you would typically put on a WP page. The blank page is much like a blank canvas - do whatever you want with it. A lot of WP themes are now incorporating squeeze page templates but if yours doesn't have one, this is a workable DIY alternative. Good luck.

        Thanks, Steve. Now that I think of it, if I use your template, will I still have access to the WordPress editing tools? That would be really helpful. If I use straight HTML it might not turn out to be mobile friendly...

    I would highly recommend you check out Instabuilder.com (2.0) because it does a lot of what you are asking. It's a WordPress plugin you install and can make great pages, and edit seo settings too.

    I have found that Instabuilder is a good tool for doing what you are asking. It comes with a number of templates etc. However, Elementor Pro is fantastic in my opinion! You can build the page however you want and save elements to use on other pages/posts and create full templates that you can reuse. It's great for building a custom landing page etc.
