1. Jeff Yalden: Lifestyle Video Landing Page

Jeff Yalden Landing Page

Jeff Yalden’s impressive customization of the Lifestyle Video Landing Page template from the LeadPages™ Marketplace presents a lesson in how to customize a page to visually match your brand.

The grayscale color scheme he chose is fitting for the page’s very serious subject matter, and it also allows the bright red call-to-action buttons to pop and draw attention.

If you compare Jeff’s customization to the original template, you’ll see how drastically he was able to change the feel of the page to match his offer.

[Template Marketplace] Author Spotlight Series #1: Jeff Wenberg

Note: This is a series of spotlights on authors in our LeadPages™ Marketplace.

Process isn’t predictable.

You can talk about process all you want. But process, inherently, is different for everyone.

That’s why we wanted to give you an inside look into the minds of our prolific Marketplace authors. We wanted them to share insights, advice and inspiration from their template creation process so you can gather your own insights to create a new template for the LeadPages™ Marketplace.

Thus, the Author Spotlight was born.

This week, we sat down with Jeff Wenberg (click here to see a listing of all of his templates) — creator of the Real Estate Landing Page and the Business Landing Page (Mini Site) templates — to talk about why his templates are so uniquely versatile, his sage-like two word piece of advice to aspiring authors and three marketers he thinks need to make a template.

Enjoy this inaugural edition of the Author Spotlight!

The 4-Step Process for Creating Blog Posts That Actually Build Your Business

Let’s be honest. If you’re the marketing engine behind your business, then your time is more than valuable. In fact, your time has an actual dollar amount attached to it.

It doesn’t matter whether you run a one-person business or you’re the Marketing Director of a major corporation. If you’re in charge, you need to spend your time on tasks that bring in revenue — like designing promotional campaigns or running key split tests.

Any time you spend on other activities can cost you. That includes the hours you might spend creating sensational content for your blog.

Of course, blogging can be just as important as all these day-to-day marketing tasks. Sharing phenomenal content with your audience can produce scalable results that go far beyond your standard promotion.

Since your time is so valuable on an hour-to-hour basis, let’s make blogging even more worthy of your time.

That’s what I want to talk to you about today. I want to show you how to get the most ROI out of every blog post you publish, so you can continue to grow your list and boost your sales with your blog in 2015 and beyond.

NOTE: It is highly recommended that you download our 4-Step Blogging Checklist so you can easily use all these ideas in all blog posts you write from now on. Click here to download.

Step #1: Give Blog Readers More Chances to Join Your Email List

It goes without saying, if you’re blogging for your business than you should be growing your email list at the same time.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re just starting out with a 1-person business or you’re quickly growing a billion-dollar startup.

You should always, always, always grow the size of your audience. That’s how you turn casual blog readers into leads and potential customers.

As you’re setting up your blog, the easiest way to do that is to give your readers as many chances to join your email list as possible.

For example, on the LeadPages™ blog, we give blog readers five different opportunities to opt-in for our list with LeadBoxes®. That includes four opt-in opportunities in our sidebars and a timed pop-up LeadBox™.

In the LeadPages™ blog sidebar, we give blog readers four separate opportunities to join our email list. You can see three of these opt-in opportunities above.

By using a two-step opt-in process for each of these LeadBoxes®, we can easily give readers multiple chances to join our list — without embedding a bunch of intrusive, easily ignored opt-in forms all over the blog.

Here are just a few of the ways you can ask blog readers to join your list. . . Read More
