Just saw eben using it too.
Heck there are even some wp plugins that do this too.
This forum has been really good to me over the years... so I figured why not hook you up with something for free.
I spent a couple of hours designing a pretty slick template for this type of squeeze page... and I figured i'd pre-empt all the "modeling" of my stuff and just give it away... (my "Warning" squeeze page is being used literally all over the internet, and i've seen some people selling it claiming it as theirs lol).
You can add anything you want inside the content area and use whatever background you want.
(I suggest split testing several different backgrounds.)
Just insert your copy and opt in form into the black area... and add an image for the background (make sure the dimensions are exactly the same as the current image).
Then you're off to the races.
It's working great for me, and I got an email from another guy yesterday saying it increased his optin rate by 20%.
And another guy messaged me on Skype:
"Dave, i'm finally running a split test with that optin page template you created (big image style) NO-so far its killing the control 54% NO- to NO-29%"
you think he's happy?
Remember, More leads = mo money.
This is not a joke. It's really free.
Oh... and let me know how it converts for you.
