Sending your traffic to a squeeze page still working for you?

22 replies
How is the standard traffic > squeeze page model working for you. Is it still converting for you as well as before? Better or worse?

Any new tricks you've had to employ recently to keep your conversions up?

      I've always achieved FAR better success overall with a signup box in the top, right-hand corner of my blog, great content, and a reminder at the foot of most (not all) posts, suggesting that visitors sign up to my newsletter.

      But having said that, the majority of my visitors arrive at my blog not from Google searches, but because they've read my content on other niche relevant websites, so they arrive looking for more information. A squeeze-page would no doubt be a huge turn-off for them.

        Annie, have you done testing to see how much difference it makes putting it at the right or the left? Mine is in the upper left, but I really wasn't sure which way to go - or if it made much difference. How do you split test for this?

        Thanks

          Sorry - I've only just noticed your question. No, I haven't tested left vs right; for some reason (don't know what that is yet ), I've always placed my sign-up boxes on the top, right-hand side of the page.

        Ooh, you got in before me, here ... but could have taken every single word of the above right out of my own mouth. All I have left is "that goes for me, too".

    Yes it works great. It's an important part of a good sales funnel!

    Make sure you have a short yet awsome video on there.

    Don't clutter up the page with words, get straight to point.

    Make it a killer squeeze page that converts traffic into subscribers!

      I think it would really depend on your readership. Like AnniePot said above, I think a pop-up or squeeze page would turn off my readers. They are most likely finding me because they want more information. If all they see is a big pop-up or something, I worry that they'll turn away or say "no thanks" rather than sign up.

      I haven't done any sort of split testing or anything like that to test this, mind you. And maybe it's about my own absolute aversion to pop-ups and anything else that interferes with my ability to get to the page I was trying to get to.

      I guess if my readers are anything like me, which is possibly why they like my site in the first place, they may not like it either.

      Perhaps I still need to test this, but I'm still in the process of creating a freebie-giveaway for the sign-up. I'm more willing to work on that to grow my list and making my email responder series great rather than work on a squeeze page right now.

      *I realize this thread isn't about pop-ups, but I really don't want to block my readers from getting to the page they are looking for.*

    I still find straight to squeeze pages works fine as long as they are kind of expecting it - like an offer for a free ebook somewhere and they click and have to sign up for it.. seems fine.

    If it was a link in an article saying 'Click here for more' and then it landed on just a squeeze page and no more info at all that may p**s people off...

      I don't have data to back this up, but here's why I put mine in the upper right...

      How do people read English-language web content? Top to bottom, left to right, yes?

      So I put mine where the eye will linger - on the right, next to the scroll bar and just above the navigation. Like Anne, I put either an abbreviated opt-in form or a reminder to use the one at the top after most posts.

      If you wanted to split test for this, you'd need two identical pages, with the only difference being the opt-in on the right or left. Send traffic to each until you have enough data to draw a conclusion or until you get 100 signups on one option. The 100 signup option is so you don't end up running an endless test if the results are too close to matter. You'd also have to code the signups so you knew if they came from the right or left options.

        OK, I had thought since it starts from left to right it was better to put it where the reader would start out (on the left). Interesting.

      So you're saying it may depend more on what type of page they are coming from on whether they might be expecting to give their information somewhere (or not)? That makes some sense.

    I just moved my sign-up box a few minutes ago. I have a pretty good idea what my sign-up rate has been the last few months, pretty steadily. So I should be able to see if this makes a difference. Thanks, guys!

    you should be testing and split testing.

    Have your optin pages, test offers, copy and instend of ask for name and email just ask for email.

    Doing all these things you can get your opting page converting big time.

    Hopefully this will help. The best time to build a list is YESTERDAY!

    Yeah, of course if you're running a blog with an established readership I don't know anyone who would advocate for placing a squeeze page in front of your content.

    This question was more directed at those who are buying traffic in a certain niche and building a list or capturing them in a sales funnel.

    I'm about to build a sales funnel and was looking for best practices regarding the entrance/squeeze page.

    Thanks for the responses all!

    Well-done squeeze pages are still a good way to get subscribers to my lists.
    Conversions are slightly decreased but not so much, anyway it's better that you improve your "subscribers channel" with a blog or anyway with something that has more content.

    Send it to a facebook fan page where it is easier to get a like which is the same as an opt in.

    It really depends on the traffic too.

    I've had better success sending paid traffic from banner ads and classified ads directly to squeeze pages. I think it's because when someone clicks an ad they're kind of expecting a direct solicitation.

    But people who are searching or content or clicking in from a blog or a forum link respond better to articles and content with an invitation on the upper right and an invitation (not a hard sell) at the bottom.

    Yep, I've been driving traffic to my squeezepages for years now and it still converts as well as it ever did -- thought I'm not sure why it wouldn't.

    The only "trick" I would suggest is split-testing. Just a simple headline change can do miracles for a squeezepage conversion %.

      I have increased my optin rate the day i have reformulated my words to give a good enough reason to opt-in.

      Asking to opt-in without a good enough reason may be perceived as trying to get the email rather than to provide a valuable service to the interested person.

      Try to see the page as one of your visitor will see it, does it look like a useful service or does it look like a spam/ad system ?

      I also put my opt-in form after an article or a video.
