Squeeze Theme Review – Squeeze/Sales Pages on Your Blog Made Easy

December 8, 2009 - Written by Gyutae Park  

Squeeze Theme

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.

Final Thoughts

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.

Try out Squeeze Theme now.

This is great review! I’m little bit confuse. Do you think it is possible to use the theme also for a membership site? Which would be great to be able to create squeeze, sales and member pages with it?

Per the new FTC rules, you are in violation for not visibly disclaiming that you are an affiliate of the product you reviewed and thus will receive a commission if someone purchases the product through your link. Frank Kern has a video on his blog explaining this very such thing.

 
A Squeeze Theme Buyer - NOT HAPPY on December 22nd, 2009 Subscribed to comments via email

I would not every do business with Unique Blog designs again. I did make a purchase awhile back – and I was happy with my purchase. This time around, I purchased both the WordPress Squeeze Theme and the WordPress Affiliate Theme priced at $297.

That was on December 14th, 2009. I knew I was in trouble when I saw the forum and all of the issues others were having with the themes. I went ahead and installed the WordPress Squeeze Theme on my server and spent the next 4-5 hours trying to get things to work correctly. I’ve been a WP user for the last 4-5 years and I’m a full-time marketer, so I know my way around WP really well.

The same day I asked for a refund from Josh. I got an immediate reply asking which theme I wasn’t happy with. I explained the situation nicely, and then nothing for a few days. I put a refund request in via PayPal, which Josh Mullineau denied.

Here it is December 22nd, and after emails including a voice mail left – all my refund requests are being ignored.

I have zero tolerance for this type of business practice and others should be warned about Josh Mullineau and the Squeeze Theme and Affiliate Theem for WordPress put out by Unique Blog Designs.

Don’t get me wrong, the product will be nice someday – it just has a lot of bugs and issues. The product should have stayed in beta until the bugs were fixed and then launched to the public.

I have no idea how many others are getting/feeling ripped off like me, but I encourage those who feel the same way and/or tried to get a refund from Josh Mullineau and he doesn’t reply to any of your emails to contact PayPal. Let them know the truth about what is happening here.

I’m sure I’m not the only person to have purchased the Squeeze Theme and Affiliate Theme for WordPress to have many issues. And I’m sure I’m not the only one whose refund request was ignored.

To get our money back…. I spoke to my contact at PayPal. All it takes is several of us to tell the truth and explain the situation about the product, issues we’ve had, etc. Once a few of those are in, PayPal will lock down Josh Mullineau’s PayPal accounts and everyone who purchased the WordPress Squeeze Theme and/or Affiliate Theme will be refunded their money.

So sad there are still these types of sellers out there – but thankfully it’s a lot easier now-a-days to report them and get our money back.

Thanks.

Great review here bro, You really take us inside the Squeeze Theme to show exactly what it’s capable of. It’s quite a powerful theme with many possibilities…

Here is an old rule! If you want to be really successful in affiliate marketing, you ought to drive traffic to your website. The more visitors to the website, the higher the probability of click through. Many affiliate guides forget to mention that it is always prudent to build traffic first and then consider affiliate marketing. There is no magic potion. If there is no traffic, there are no profits. Don’t worry, if you haven’t got hordes of visitors, even a few visitors will do initially. Once these visitors start trickling down the web drain, you can place banners and advertising in appropriate places to get the results. A good affiliate marketer doesn’t care about the number of clicks but on the average number of clicks per visitor.
Such techniques, slowly but surely brings success. And with it comes a potential for much higher rewards

Thanks for the great review, I will have to consider squeezetheme.

Well it all sounds very interesting and is exactly what I’ve been searching for over the past week or so, however with comments such as “A Squeeze Theme Buyer – NOT HAPPY” I think I’ll be waiting awhile.

Of course the other way around this is to create a “new page” under the HTML tag and paste your code in there with a bit of text about the product.

You could then place a link in your post to that page.

Hi thank you for review this theme

Wow! It is really a cool plugin especially for someone like me who really sucks in web designing. Regarding the use of squeeze pages, if you are doing online marketing and you do not have list, you are doing it wrong for sure.
