Secret Tool For Mobile Squeeze Pages

10 replies
The original post is below where you can still access the tool, but WillR has updated us to the fact that you don't need the tool. He's posted the code that the tool adds to your document. See his post (#3) below.

Okay so I could be late on this, but just in case I'm not the last person to discover this here it is...

Again this is something I found in the Offline Section of the Forum. It's a post by Warrior Ben who you should definitely follow on here for some good info. He was answering a question about a mobile website in this thread --->http://www.warriorforum.com/offline-...-now-what.html

You can see his whole answer there, but I'll post piece of it here:
Included in my standard pricing to clients, I offer them the option for an e-mail opt-in where customers can put in their name and e-mail address (and sometimes phone number, depending on what my client wants) and be automatically e-mailed either a coupon or some special information. (One of my Realtor clients offers a 5 page PDF that he wrote on Tips for New Home Buyers.)

As for the logistics of setting this up, I use my own AWeber account and set up the opt-in from that. I then use the Mobile Monopoly Secret Tool (Mobile Monopoly Squeeze Page Generator) to convert the AWeber form to mobile. (Make sure to check the box for Taller Name & E-mail). I then go to the Squeeze Page that is created with the MM Secret Tool and go to View Source and copy the code. I then paste that code into a separate page for my client's mobile site, which is linked to from their main page that the QR Code goes to.

I hope that all makes sense! Oh and one last thing regarding the e-mail opt-in: if you do use your own AWeber account, make sure that your client is paying you a monthly fee for hosting and maintenance because they will ask to change their offer from time to time and having them pay you every month makes it worth your while to make the changes and not have it feel like you are doing work for free.


So the link to create a mobile squeeze page is Mobile Monopoly Squeeze Page Generator

    I used to use that same mobile monopoly squeeze page generator but there is no need to. All that generator does is adds ONE single line of code at the top of your document:

    <meta name="viewport" content="user-scalable=no, width=device-width" />

    That's all. Simply paste that at the top of your page and you're good to go. No need to worry about using that tool anymore.

    I use a derivative of that on all of my mobile webpages to enable the auto resizing to fit all the different mobile devices:

    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, minimum-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=2.0, user-scalable=no" />

    Enjoy!

      Good advice Will, I used that Mobile Monopoly tool too way back before I started creating my own mobile squeeze pages and sites...to be honest I found it a bit 'buggy' which is what prompted me to get my hands dirty...
