What is the easiest way to create a simple landing page? Can I use WordPress.org to create one? Are there any free themes or plugins for that?

    It sounds like you are wanting to do things for free, but at some point you will need to put some money into your business.

    For example, you should be using at least aweber to capture some subscribers.

    You can create a squeeze page using wordpress.org, but you should really buy your own domain name and hosting if you're really wanting to learn about Internet Marketing.

    I taught myself using Youtube videos. It IS possible.

    Using wordpress you can create a squeeze page for free.

    1. Create a captivating headline. I would recommend creating a headline in a free graphics creator called gimp. Again it's free. That way you can change the color and shape of the headline. Insert the headline into a page.

    2. Below the headline under the 'text' editor place the code for your opt-in form from Aweber into the page. Make sure you center it using <center> in the text side. This will center your form.

    That's the simplest and cheapest way to build a squeeze page.

    My advice is once you get going is to own your own domain name and hosting and get Optimizepress. It's SO simple to create squeeze pages, sales pages, and more. It's a one time fee and a great investment.

    Just my 2 cents

    You have to invest money to make money.

    I make my squeeze pages with Optimze Press. It's not cheap, but it really gets the job done. You can make squeeze pages in minutes.

      IMHO you should forget WP for creating a squeeze page, try this Nvu Web Authoring Software instead, it appears to still be free.

      Then create a page with

      A strong header
      list of benefits
      A call to action
      An opt-in

      I'm assuming you have an enticing free offer, and an autoresponder email series to follow up with...?

    You will need to invest money. You cant start a real business for free. You need the basics your own website, themes, plug-ing create free gift funnel, backend autoresponder, gather leads and reinvest rinse and repeat. You wont find anyway around it. Dont try to re invent the wheel do what works!

    You can alway outsource it at fiverr or odesk to get someone to create for you.

    If you have photoshop knowledge, you can always use photoshop with a html editor tool.

    Check out PaperTemplate I haven't tried it, but it's only $7.00, so it may be a great way for you to get started! Let me know how it works out if you try it!

    Also @Greedy, your Twitter link doesn't work. You may want to fix that!

    You ask for easy and free. Forget free! Easy is Kyle Graham's Ten Minute Pages. And, no, I am not an affiliate; I just like the program's simplicity.

      I am playing with the theme Spun for WP in one of my websites. You can make a lading page with it if you use a page, it is very clean.

      I presume by landing page you want a squeeze page (?). You will need an autoresponder for this. There are some free, I don´t like any of them. I am using MadMimi right now, you can have newsletter for free, and autoresponder from $10 a month.

      If you dare to go the Joomla way, I just finished a step by step visual guide to add a capture form to a Joomla site. You can see it working here:

      Home

      It is easy to move it to the main page and make it a landing page, I can give you the details or add it. Also, if you want it, you don´t need to register; just message me and I give you the download link. Feedback is always appreciated.

    The best landing pages are simple ones that aren't filled with a bunch of material. Keep everything above the fold including the button to submit the form. Just tell what they're going to get briefly, provide the form and there you go.

    Also remember that you need a good domain name and a good hosting account. I personally use hostgator.com.

    Landing pages do not have to be complex, or filled with a boatload of graphics to convert. Simplicity does the trick quite well and is preferred by most people believe it or not.

    As others in this thread have already said at some point you will need to invest money into your "business". It does usually take money to make money and being too cheap to invest in a proper autoresponder or purchase your own domain name or hosting doesn't bold too well for your internet marketing future.

    I've never done CPA in my life and I'm planning on testing it out. Is optimize press still "solid"?

    WordPress is your best bet for this. You'll have to buy hosting and maybe a premium theme but the costs are very low. Just bite the bullet and do it, the sooner you have the site up and running, the sooner you can start driving traffic.

      If you were referring to me, I already have wordpress, I have a hosting etc. etc. But now the question is, should I get optimize press?
