LeadBoxes Roundup: Our Top 10 Favorite LeadBoxes for September

Versatility — that’s what the month of September was all about for LeadBoxes.

In this roundup of our 10 favorite LeadBoxes examples from the last month, you’ll see LeadBoxes that were used as:

  • Price quote request forms
  • Blog sidebar opt-ins
  • Content upgrades
  • Consultation request forms
  • And the all-new way to use your LeadBoxes — timed popups.

That’s right — you now have the ability to automatically trigger a LeadBox window when a visitor has been on a page for a certain amount of time.

As you’ll soon see on this page, we’ve created a timed LeadBox that will automatically appear once you’ve been here for 45 seconds.

For now, let’s start taking a look at our 10 favorite LeadBoxes from the month of September.

1. Tim Paige: Free Report Popup LeadBox

Tim is using a new “popup” LeadBox that automatically appears after visitors spend a few seconds on his home page.

What Stands Out: We’ll kick this month’s roundup off with an example of our all-new “popup” LeadBoxes feature. This allows you to have any LeadBox you create appear automatically after a visitor has been on a page for a certain amount of time.

You’ll notice the new publishing options in the revamped LeadBoxes publishing window. You can now also create LeadBoxes that appear when a visitor is about to leave your page.

A quick look at the new LeadBoxes publishing window.

This example comes from our very own Conversion Educator and host of the ConversionCast podcast Tim Paige. This LeadBox automatically appears after the first few seconds you spend on his home page.

The ways you can implement this on your own websites are limitless, so we’re excited to see what users create with this feature in the coming weeks. Read More

A Complete Guide to the LeadPages Landing Page Template Marketplace

A few months ago, we made a major announcement — we would be launching a landing page template marketplace that would be the first of its kind. . .

A place where people could not only buy AND sell custom landing page templates, but also sort all templates in the Marketplace by their conversion rates.

This marketplace would be designed to do two things specifically:

  1. Give you the best selection of high-converting landing page templates online.
  2. Give you the opportunity to sell your own custom template designs. . . and keep 100% of the profits. That’s right — LeadPages takes NO cut of the templates you create and sell.

We’re happy to announce that we’ll be officially rolling this Marketplace out in the coming days.

A sneak-peek at just a few of the templates you’ll see when the LeadPages Marketplace goes live.

What does this mean for you? A few things. . .

  • In addition to the 80+ landing page templates that are already available to LeadPages customers, you’ll be able to purchase additional templates created by third-party designers and developers in the LeadPages Marketplace. When you purchase a template, it will automatically appear in the “Templates” section of your LeadPages account.
  • You can become a LeadPages Marketplace Template Author — this will allow you to sell your own custom template designs inside the Marketplace (and keep 100% of the profits).
  • You can use one of our recommended vendors to custom design and code a template which you can then sell inside the Marketplace.

What this does NOT mean:

This does not mean LeadPages will stop creating additional landing page templates inside LeadPages at no additional charge for LeadPages customers. We will continue to add beautiful, high-converting templates to the 80+ ones already available to customers.

In this post, I’m going to show you exactly how to sell your custom landing page templates in the Marketplace and what the Marketplace means for LeadPages customers and Template Authors.

How to Sell Your Landing Page Templates in the LeadPages Marketplace and Get 100% of the Revenue

No — we’re not kidding. When you become a LeadPages Template Author, you will get 100% of every sale you make in our Marketplace. That’s an entirely new revenue stream for your business. We’ve created the Marketplace that makes it possible.

But here’s why this is an even more unique opportunity. . .

This Marketplace already has a built-in customer base of 20,000+ LeadPages customers (and counting).

Basically, becoming one of the first handful of template authors would be like being one of the first authors on Amazon or hosting one of the first auctions on eBay. You get to offer your templates first, when the competition is lower.

Some quick math reveals what a great opportunity becoming a Template Author is.

How to Create Your Own Landing Page Template to Sell in the LeadPages Marketplace

There are two ways to create your own landing page template for the LeadPages Marketplace:

1. Design and Code the Template Yourself: Once you register as a Template Author, we provide you with loads of tutorials and support materials to help you tailor your template to meet LeadPages specifications.

2. Hire One of Our Recommended Vendors to Design and Code Your Template Idea for You: Since the birth of the LeadPages Marketplace, two vendors have already sprung up that you can hire to create landing page templates that you can then sell in the LeadPages Marketplace.

We’ve personally worked with both of the designers/coders who started these agencies, and we highly recommend them:

As exciting as this Marketplace launch is for people who want to sell their own landing page templates, it’s an equally exciting opportunity for LeadPages customers who want to purchase templates from the Marketplace.

Why? A few reasons:

  • Since we’re paying Template Authors 100% commissions, the Marketplace is already attracting some of the most talented conversion-focused designers in the business. That means top-notch quality and cutting-edge functionality.
  • As the Marketplace grows, it will increase the amount of available LeadPages landing page templates exponentially.
  • All of the templates in the Marketplace will simply be in addition to the landing page templates LeadPages will continue to design in-house and release for free to LeadPages customers.
  • Like the Templates section inside LeadPages, the Marketplace allows visitors to sort templates by conversion rate, which means you’ll be able to find the highest converting landing pages inside the entire Marketplace with a few clicks.
  • If you have an idea for a template that you’d like to use in your LeadPages account, you can use one of our vendors to create a custom template for you, and even sell it inside the Marketplace.

The launch of this Marketplace is just the beginning. In the coming weeks, expect a dramatic increase in the amount of landing page templates available to you as a customer.

Stay Tuned — the Marketplace Is Coming Soon

The LeadPages Marketplace is the result of tons of planning, work, and the desire to create the best place to buy and sell landing page templates online. Stay tuned — we can’t wait for you to check it out.

10 Surprising Marketing Lessons You Can Learn From Fantasy Football

Congratulations! We’re trying out something new, and you’re part of the special sneak peek group! If you’d like to listen to a reading of this blog post, check out the SoundCloud audio below.

 

Would you believe I’m the marketer I am today because of fantasy football?

It’s true. I’m only 25 years old, but I’ve been playing fantasy football half my life and I’m commissioner of three leagues.

Think about that for a second. 12 years of my life have gone towards this game. I was 13 when I started playing. That’s 2002.

Just for a point of reference, in 2002 American Idol was brand new, Apple computers still came in different translucent colors, and ESPN.com — the site I’ve played fantasy football on every year — looked like this:

ESPN Homepage

When you play for that long, you tend to learn some things. Take a running back in the first round, pull the trigger on a free agent in Week 3 and never draft Eli Manning under any circumstances (he is not, as his commercials imply, unstoppable).

As a marketer, however, I’ve taken away something else from this game. I’ve learned practical lessons that can help you out on the real gridiron — the world of marketing.
