The question was very simple:
Which page would you feel more comfortable with (and) what thoughts come to your mind when you see each page.
One page was a multi-page website with widgets, videos and pictures, etc..
The other was a squeeze page, single page, scrolling.
80% said "this one" (The squeeze page) looks like a scam
98% would be more comfortable adding their email to the multipage site.
**Please keep in mind, my squeeze page works, but my regular is converting better**
I just wonder if I have been closed minded or stubborn about my squeeze page, and honestly I think I have been. Please dont flame in this thread, I already understand and get that "YOU" have "proof" your squeeze page is working.
But I want to open a discussion for those that are kind of in my boat so to say.
UPDATE FEB 11th
Why are you assuming it's the squeeze page in general and not the design of your specific page and your product?
A squeeze page can't look like anything until you fill it with content.
Stereotypical, bland squeeze pages with poor content / copy can look like scams perhaps....
I in addition to my findings I have confirmed this:
The greater population has a better "shopping" "purchasing" experience on sites like Amazon, or any other known brand name.
The key factor is they are used to the look and feel of these sites
The brain says, "Im comfortable here"
And talk about list building, do you think Amazon has a small list? (Im not talking to anyone directly BTW)
The greater population has found that when you have a "squeeze page" (Like 98% of all you signatures) Their brains, say "Uh Oh, this is not right"
This is what I found, and I understand that many deep down inside know its true but have such a reputation here that prevents you from accepting it.
The economy is bad so I just wanted to share my success story - yes I currently capture emails, and yes I have an amazing email campaign, all with leaving the squeeze page behind. And no it has nothing to do with the sites in my signature surprisingly
