  • Why This Is The Best-Performing Evergreen Landing Page Weve Ever Used

    It outperforms a free report because a lot of folks are experiencing information overload and dont want something else to read

    It outperforms video lead magnets because the perceived value of video lead magnets has gone down a lot lately due to the proliferation of launches and lack of time

    It outperforms opt-ins for free coaching sessions greater value does not necessarily equal higher conversion rate.

    The amount of time you spend creating your lead magnet does not equal your conversion rate

  • Step #2: Utilize Your Thank You Page

  • The Path To Your Thank You Page

    Among BILLIONS of webpages, someone finds you (whether via SEO, your ads, social media, links, whatever)

    Then, a small percentage of them actually like your stu enough to read a blog post or your About Me page.

    THEN, they enter their email address. (The average site-wide opt-in rate is between 0.5% and 2%)

    With all of these filters for someone to finally get to opt in, where do we take them?

  • Instead

    Use this as an opportunity to grow your list and keep your brand consistent with your Thank You Page.

  • But people are scared of doing webinars.

    Ill share with you an incredible way to gather market research, create a be!er connection with your audience, find topics for future content marketing, and grow your list without creating content for webinars in advance.

  • A Quick Bonus: Why Webinars?

    10 of the top 12 highest converting pages on our website are webinar registration pages

    Webinars are not dead

    Theyve made us more money than anything weve ever done (in terms of event based marketing)

    The majority of successful Fortune 500 so#ware companies, mediapreneurs, coaches, SaaS companies, aliate marketers, eCommerce store owners etc are all doing webinars.

  • Why Webinars?

  • Want A Dierent Thank You Page Option?

  • All we did was add a thank you page a!er people register for our webinars and weve seen a 342% increase in Facebook likes. Thanks @LeadPages! Amanda Holmes, CEO of Chet Holmes International

  • Step #3: Create Content Upgrades

  • We started this webinar by discussing the Resource Guide Lead Magnet, which is a fantastic lead magnet.

    But in 2015, one single lead magnet isnt enough.

    Most folks put the same lead magnet at the bo!om of every blog post

  • but if someones interested in THAT blog post, shouldnt we be oering a lead magnet thats specific to it?

    Thats called a Content Upgrade. It upgrades the value of the blog post.

    These all use LeadBoxes (a 2-step opt-in) because they average a 30% increase in conversion rate over the standard, one-step opt-in.
