I made this squeeze page in adKreator. I am writing an email series to go with it. I have the first two email written and loaded into the autoresponder.

I really just want to know what people think of the squeeze page. Is it easy to read and understand? Would it catch your attention? Is there anything I should change?

If anyone is interested in giving feedback on the first two emails I'll gladly take it, but it's the squeeze page I'm most concerned about at this point.

Thanks. Here's the link.

All I can say right now is that I couldn't have made it any better, but then I'm a web programmer, not a designer, and I find AdKreator incredibly difficult and slow to use -- and the resulting code is not too good either.
I'm really impressed with your result.

Hmmm... I think I'll sign up for your letters too! :)

OOOPS! It calls a TEToolbox site, and TEToolbox has a rotator with too many bad sites so I have blocked it. I recommend that you move that site OUT of TEToolbox so you won't risk losing customers because ot it.

WELL, I still got the confirmation letter, and after that another message that the TEToolbox site was blocked. Unfortunate, but no disaster. Still I'd consider the recommendation above.

Thank you. This is the first I've heard of anyone not trusting TE Toolbox.

Thank you. This is the first I've heard of anyone not trusting TE Toolbox.TEToolbox is OK I guess, but there are some very annoying sites there. Not good for surfing TEs. :)

Hi mrsdrake,

Over all it is a very nice looking page. However, based on my experience in writing ad copy in the early days of mail order, I would change a few things.

You start out with a very good Headline. Asking a question such as "Traffic Exchages Rejecting Your Sites?" is a very good way to get the potential customer's attention.

After this, you need to show that you can provide the reader with something that will benefit them.

Your statement "Learn how to promote effectively and get your sites seen." is almost there. However, the reader may not see, right off, the benefit of having their sites "seen". I would make it clear that I offer information that will insure their sites will not be rejected by the traffic exchanges. It enforces your headline question.

The following is too much information:

Are you Using ...
Adsense on Your Site?
Too many scripts?
Multiple Popup ads?
Popups that Don't close?

These will keep your sites out of rotation at many traffic exchanges.

Save this for the content of your autoresponder. You need to have a bit of suppense to cause the person to want to see more.

The above information do not leave much room to tell the potential customer anything new, anything that you have not told in your squeeze page.

Hope this helps

Thank you so much for the advice. I will take another look at it. I was afraid that I was either unclear or gave too much information on the page.

That looks great! It pass all the test that I know about. I think you should do real good with this one.

Thank you everyone for all the comments. You've helped a lot. I was really scared about all this when I started. I'm feeling more confident now. I just need to work on the remaining emails for my auto responder.

Thank you all.

Ok, I know I am a little late on this, but I am going to give my two cents anyway. This squeeze page does nothing for me. In fact I would dismiss it entirely if I saw it in a te. The first reason for that is that you are asking for my email, which means you want to add me to your mailing list and flood my inbox with junk I don't want. The second reason is that it looks like every other squeeze page out there that is promoting the "latest" e-book filled with nothing useful. Sorry if this seems a bit harsh, but these are my initial reactions/thoughts when viewing both of your squeeze pages.

I understand your views, and most often it's just what you are saying; a splash/squeeze page is a way to get an email address so you can send one or more letters.
After all, the reason why you're using a TE at all, is to do some kind of business. There's really no point in trying to conceal that.

Now, MrsDrake's wish was, I think, to get our opinions about what we though the page LOOKED LIKE. As I see it, the contents or the purpose doesn't have too much to do with it. Also, whether you might feel like writing your name and address there, doesn't have much to do with it. I did, and the letters I received were quite good, to the point, and not too many - but for me they told me things I know before. But again, that has little to do with it.

I gave the page close to top score for its layout, colors, and attraction. I think that was the point here.

I wish MrsDrake good luck with her promotions.

I think in part you missed the point of Virginias post

it looks like every other squeeze page out there that is promoting the "latest" e-book filled with nothing useful

ie, what Virginia is saying is in fact a critique of the page - it looks like other pages, it is not standing out from other squeeze pages, it is not attention getting (OK you get the point) so in that respect I would say it was highly relevant feedback - what is being 'sold' is being lost in the 'communication' of the message.

When you look at it that way, I can see it as a valid feedback. However, I saw a unique squeeze page. The color choice was different and the title was unique.

Coming from a Direct Mail background, I look for the simple, strightforward approach to advertising. The things Virginia disagreed with is the main selling point of the ad. Too many ads these days, lose the message in a bunch of special effects, colors and graffics. I just want to know what you offer, how it will benefit me and how much it is going to cost me.

Thanks De, that was exactly my point. There was nothing about it that stood out for me. I am not saying that I have never given my email for a mailing list. Some things are worth it, but this particular squeeze page did not catch my interest enough to get me to want to give it.

And that folks is the beauty of Advertising :)

1 Ad, 2 people - 2 different reactions.

Neither response is more valid or less valid than the other, it is a result of the fact we are individuals and respond to different things.

This is where the whole issue of split-testing comes in - you get to see which advert provokes the greatest response from the largest portion of the target market (and if in fact there is a market you did not even target that is responding too)

This is exactly why I am currently making some other splash pages and squeeze pages. I plan on testing different colors and variations on wording. I am also going to provide a website with the text from my autoresponder series and link my splash pages to it for those that may not want to give an email address.

I think that's the right thing to do.
