December 8, 2009 - Written by Gyutae Park
Squeeze pages are important – no doubt about it. If you have a free offer that you’re giving away in exchange for user information (name and email address), you should be utilizing a squeeze page. If not, you’re probably leaving a lot of leads on the table and limiting your email list building potential.
I’ve written before about the 7 components of killer squeeze pages and you should look to incorporate all of them if possible.
But what if you’re not technically savvy or would rather rely on a system to do all of the heavy lifting for you? After all, tweaking and optimizing on-page elements usually requires a good understanding of technical code. Enter Squeeze Theme – a new premium WordPress theme created by the team over at Unique Blog Designs.
Squeeze Theme isn’t really your typical theme in the sense that what you see is not necessarily what you get. In other words, you wouldn’t be using it for a set layout or color scheme. It’s more of a framework rather than a theme. There are a ton of options and configurations in the backend that allow you to customize the look and feel of your blog. Of course, the strong point of the theme is that you can easily set up optimized squeeze pages and sales pages in addition your blog – all with a few clicks of a button.
Here’s a video introduction to Squeeze Theme.
The WordPress backend looks like this…
There are options for pretty much everything – including appearance and colors, layout, fonts, logos, form and submit button settings, etc. Here’s what the homepage of your default blog might look like. Keep in mind that many of the elements and colors can be changed however you wish. In fact, if you notice, the SqueezeTheme.com site uses the same theme.
In addition to the traditional blog or magazine layouts, the theme also allows you to create custom squeeze pages and sales pages (without sidebars). Below are some of the existing templates and examples to show you what’s possible.
Squeeze Theme costs $147 and definitely is not cheap compared to other premium themes out there. However, if you consider the value of squeeze/sales pages and the potential new leads and customers that they can help you obtain, it can be a very good investment. Furthermore, since Squeeze Theme can easily be customized, you can use it for many of your sites with different settings in place.
It’s possible to create squeeze pages on your existing blog by tweaking the code and adding some templates. However, if you’re looking to build an email list and sell products on your blog without much technical know-how, Squeeze Theme may be the perfect solution for you.
