Totally stuck with creating a sales page - need advice

15 replies
I need some advice on how to create (or have created for me) my first sales page.

I have found the type of layout that I am interested in, it can be view here http://www.rmtforbaseball.com/ this is not my site.

Can someone please let me know how I would go about creating my sales page using this type of layout?

This is a major sticking point for me and I would be very grateful for your advice.

Thank you my fellow warriors... :p

    Hey David,

    What about it is causing you the problem?

    It's a very basic layout. (BTW I hated all the popups that get forced on you at that page).

    I'm sure many warriors could throw up a page like that in a few minutes if you need it done.

    The writing is as important as the layout but that layout should be really simple, if you can't do it yourself just find a warrior to do it, I'm sure it's a quick, easy and cheap job.

      Both the content and graphics.

      I'm not sure what you're asking though..

      Al.
      Thanks for the quick reply.

      What I am asking is how do I make it myself or who can I hire to make the graphics for me, is this a templete or was this designed by a designer? I have seen this same layout on a couple of other sites by the same owner.

      I have no html skills.

Once you have this skill you can use it again and again. The video has been created by a well respected internet marketer. See details below.
      Thanks mate, I already have a opt-in page teamplete and thank you page templete from Frenk Kern, it's just the sales page that I am stuck with.

      Yes I agree the the copy is very important, I am happy to hire a copy writer to do this for me. It's the page it self that is causing the problem.

      Maybe I should just ask a designer if they can do this for me. Is there any things that I need to know before I hire a designer?

      Thank mate for the help..

    Hey David,

    This really should be easy for a web designer.

    If you don't get it quickly sorted out - PM me and I'll do it myself for you.

      My misson today, after I go to sleep (it's 2:50am here) is to find a designer from the WF who will do this for me.

      I wish I had asked this question 3 weeks ago rather then banging my head and wasting time.

      Thanks again Andy.

    Thats a basic 2 column html page with a header and footer
    The layout is easy - its the content you need to concern yourself with
    Probably the best thing for you to do instead of fretting about it is create the contents in a Word document
    Lay it out like you would like to see it including headings, colors, fonts and font sizes. Those are all easy to do in a Word document. Then find someone to assemble all those components into an html page for you.

        You could do this in about 5 minutes by viewing the source code and pasting it into any text editor and then adding your own images etc...

        I'm not saying you should - just that it should be an easy thing to do

          lol, I love your way of thinking Andy.

          I just googled "how to view soucre code". This is so way cool, it feels a little bit naughty but I have saved the source code and I am in the process of downloading a free text editor (Nvu).

          I have learned so much by asking this question.

              You have several choices. You can hire someone, but that is the most expensive method and that could take the most time and in the long run, wind up being quite a process. You could learn how to make a sales page yourself. With that in mind, you could borrow a page you admire and swap out the content and images to that of your own. You would learn a lot by this method that would pay off next time. Or, you could purchase a software that takes you through the process of building a sales page. You would not learn as much, but it is easier to do by far.

              I would avoid excessive "bells and whistles" such as popups and other gimickry. And use simple colors such as a white background and black text. I would avoid animation, flashing neon lights, and if you use sound or video, set them to only come on when the visitor activates them.

              You can be more effective with a subtle approach that will catch the interest quickly and cause the visitor to take an interest in the subject. If you pounce upon the visitor like a desperate used car salesman in a plaid suit, they will make for the cyberdoor.

              I think you picked a good example of an effective sales page. I hope you have good luck.

                I do like the sound this option, as once I get this first salespage up and running I have about another 8 that I will need to do. With each one only needing small changes to them.

                Would I do this by using software like Dreamwaver?

    You can do it in DW, Frontpage, XSitepro, MSWord, Notepad, Wordpad - any text editor.

    I like a free web page creation software called Kompozer

    It' nothing that Youtube can't solve. Check out Youtube for tutorials on creating website. If you're worried about paying for software, then don't. Just go to Google and search for "NVU" it's an HTML Editor, and is extremely easy to use. Hope this helps.

    Best Regards,
