Starting from Scratch

Hey guys,
I am basically starting from scratch. I guess that I do not even know how to set up a squeeze page, download page, etc.

Is there a good resource that teaches this basic stuff??? Sorry but I have some good products already made, but I can't get this started. I have been banging my head against the wall for a week now.

Many Thanks

    I would suggest searching the internet for a squeeze page that you like. Then take a look at the source code and modify it a little bit to work for your product. If you don't know anything about html then you might want to download a free squeeze page template and edit it with Kompozer.

        If you already have products created, then I suggest you start by trying to find a good, keyword related domain name.

        I use namecheap.com for purchasing domains.

        Then head over to, say, Hostgator, and purchase yourself a starter hosting package.

        Install Wordpress and start setting up your site. Don't expect to get it perfect at your first try. The beauty of Wordpress sites is that you can change the look as much as you like without affecting the content.

        Then start writing a few articles and submitting them to article directories to drive traffic.

        Once you've made a couple of sales, invest in an autoresponder (Imnica, Aweber, etc) so that you can start building yourself a list.

    Having the right tools make a lot of difference. I would recommend using the really easy website builder for creating a home site, sales page and download page. It's pretty much fill in the blanks. The really easy website editor works almost like MS Word. I would recommend Power Pro List to create pop up squeeze pages. You don't have to use pop up if you don't want but it's an option after you create a squeeze page. Those tools are pretty easy and pretty much fill in the blanks.

    This basic stuff is taught in Wealthy Affiliate University.


    Hope this helps.

    Hey TGO,
    If you already have some products, then maybe you can trust someone else to help you with the tech stuff instead of spending valuable time there.

    It's not that expensive to get a blog setup for you - even with a couple of squeeze pages. I'd be glad to help.

    If you prefer to setup wordpress yourself, then there are plenty of tutorials out there.
    Maybe something like this will help:


    As far as squeeze pages go, you can either find another tutorial or maybe a wordpress plugin. If you have any other questions, feel free to send me a message.

    TGO,

    I have learned much more online in the past decade
    than any IT or Marketing related College program I attended.

    Sure College is more structured but everything and more
    regarding your quest are found by using your keyboard.

    The two most important words for anybody just starting out to become very intimate with are keyword research.

    I struggled for a very long time building anything that consistently performed well because I did not realize just how thorough and how much effort really needs to be put toward collecting as big of a list you can generate related to your product and then filtering out the mere "handful" of diamonds to be found in the rough.

    If someone in your position were to come to me asking "Where Do I Begin?", I would immediately tell them, "Start Driving Traffic".

    Without real people with real eyeballs and real problems that your real product really solves visiting your site, none of the other stuff matters.

    Google is all you really need to do your keyword research, though I use software that makes the job much easier.

    I'm sure you can find TONS of info regarding keyword research throughout the forum, use the search function and see what you can find.

      Hey tgo

      Looks like we're in much of a same position in starting out?

      I've been looking around the amazing Warrior forum for a few weeks now and I've already made a start with 2 site,

      The first one is toptelesalesguytellsall.com where I'm giving away my unique Telesales Profit Blaster along with affiliate give aways (can anyone advise if the layout and linking etc are correct, Is the squeeze page copy good enough)

      And

      My main site mark-bull.com That I actually started today and is the site I'm looking to use this as my main affiliate/blog etc hub,

      This is a work in progress at the moment so all I've managed to change is the Header Image and permalink structure but working on changing the theme once I know how to ...

      tgo If you need any advice on how I've done any of this (as Im learning it all myself) please let me know and I'll be more than happy to send you the squeeze page template and link to the free wysiwyg editor I've used to get my site up,

      Good Luck and Best Regards

    tgo,

    I've noticed that you've downloaded my free report in the WAR ROOM. That's why I stopped by to check out what can I help you with

    If you have downloaded my free report, you must have been landed on my thank you page.

    that was being built by Wordpress. The Wordpress theme which I am using, can do pretty much what you want. I was too, searching for some custom templates for squeeze pages, landing pages, thank you pages, etc.

    IT WAS SO DANG HARD because I wasn't a graphic person nor do I know anything about web hosting, web development, etc. So finally, I've decided to try out some Wordpress theme which offers ALL of those things which you've mentioned.

    PM me if you need some custom help. I thought I've replied to your post in my WAR ROOM free report thread that you can always get back to me if you have any questions?

    Aiden

    There are at least several free nice squeeze page templates that can be downloaded here, so you're covered there. In regards to setting up a download page, I believe that there are tutorials on Youtube on how to do this. If this is the first time you're doing it, I'd suggest keeping it simple and just construct a simple sparse page with a download link to your product. (Just type up some introductory text on a html editor like NVU or Trellian and then hyperlink something like 'Click here to Download My Product' to the actual product download link.)

    No need to go for anything fancy your first time around, just get it set up quickly and start making sales fast.

    As others says Wordpress is the best option to start it. You will need to find required plugins to make the complete web site. Just use search button here

    Good luck!
