How Do I Make A Squeeze Page? Tutorial with Screen Shots.



Before we get started making a squeeze page on this tutorial, I highly recommend using Google Chrome for your web browser.  Then make sure the browsing data is cleared.    I do not recommend using any other web browser.  Anytime that you are working for a long period of time, on AdCreatorDesign, and it freezes, this means you need to clear your browsing data.



Click on the 3 dots circled in yellow below on your browser, then click “More Tools,” then click “Clear browsing data,” then click on the Blue, “Clear Data” button.  You are ready to go after the browser is done clearing the browsing data.





Browse Templates and Pick One Out



Log into AdCreatorDesign with your Username, (Not Your Email Address!) and password and click on the Green button on the Left-Hand side menu that says, “Browse Templates.”

*SELECTING A SQUEEZE PAGE TEMPLATE











Let’s start by clicking on Squeeze Pages [145] and browse through the pages for a template for your first design!




Let’s browse the Squeeze Page templates and pick one out.  Scroll down the page and see more templates and check out the other pages for more template designs to choose from. Once you find a template you want to use, click on it and it will load into your editor for you to start working. 



 



 
I think I will choose the maroon and white, Squeeze Page template on page #7, 9th template down.  I will click on it to load it into my editor.  
 
I am going to upload an image now.
 
Upload a picture from your computer by clicking on the “Upload Images” button on the left-hand side of the menu under  the main menu bar.  Click on the image you wish to upload and click on “Open” and the image will appear in the upper left hand corner of the editor.
 
 
*RESIZING IMAGES
 
To resize your image: click on the image to highlight it with orange lines around it with 3 tiny orange boxes on the corners and one circle in the upper right-hand corner.  If you can’t see the corners, drag the picture down with the cross cursor until you see a corner.  It may already be highlighted in orange and ready for you to put your cross cursor on the orange box until it turns into double arrows.  1) Then drag this down as far as you can without losing the image and 2) then drag it up with the cross cursor.  Repeat these 2 steps until you have the size you need for your image.  Don’t forget to save your work!!
 
*USING THE TEXT EDITOR
 
Click on the 2 Double T’s in the upper left-hand corner of the top menu bar to open up the text box into your squeeze page editor.
 
Use the “Text Options Box”  to choose your Font, Color, Font Size, Alignment.  Place the text where you see fit by clicking on it to highlight and orange box around the text, then clicking and dragging it the text.  SAVE YOUR WORK!!!

 

*ADDING YOUR AUTORESPONDER CODE 



Copy the HTML code for your form that you wish to direct your capture leads to.  It is in the back office of your favorite autoresponder.  We will be pasting the code into the autoresponder box on the top main menu in the editor with a little yellow envelope/folder icon.



Log into your autoresponder and click on your “Campaign Manager” or “List.”

Select the Campaign you want to get a form code (autoresponder) from.
 

 
Click On Capture Page Forms.



Then click on “Capture Forms” in the drop down list.
 

Then click on “Get Basic HTML form code or the Java Script code – which ever you prefer.  If the Java Script doesn’t work then use the Basic HTML code.




Copy and paste the code into the AdCreatorDesign autoresponder box. 




The autoresponder box is at the top menu bar with the yellow envelope/file on it.  Paste your code into this box and click the “Submit” button.  It will look like a blank white box but the code is in there.  After clicking on the “Submit” button, highlight the blank white box and click on the autoresponder yellow top menu icon.  You will see the code in it you just pasted to the box.  This is handy tool to have in case you want to look up, what code is in what box.


Don’t forget to save your work!


Now you must view your squeeze page and make the changes as needed.



Click on “My Designs,” then click on the squeeze page you are working on ONCE, then click on”Your Squeeze Page Link” shown below and it will open up into a new tab on your web browser.



Click on the “Edit Design” to edit your images, text,  etc.




You can see below, the form is not all of the way inside of the maroon area so we will want to drag it a bit to the left in the editor section.  Save your work and view the tab again and refresh it to see your changes.  If your changes don’t show up when you refresh it, you will need to clear you browsing data on the browser.



To change the size of the pixel numbers in your form, we will go to the Editor and click on the autoresponder box in the menu bar after highlighting the blank white box.
 
Now view your page in the next tab and refresh it to see if the changes solved the problem.  
 
You can see that it is fixed in the diagram below.
 
*ADDING ANIMATIONS


To add an animation all we need to do is go to animatedimages.org to pick one out. 



They allow you to use their images for commercial use.  All you need to do is link back to them by putting their link on your page.  Scroll down to the categories that are in alphabetical order and pick out what you want to look at.



I’m scrolling down to “F” to pick out the “Flowers” images section.


I am going to pick out the pink daisies with the white bird in it.
 

Then scroll down to the first “Link image” and click on the Blue “Copy” button. Then paste the animation code into the autoresponder box in your editor of your squeeze page.  Then click the “Submit” button to save it.

 
Then click on the white box and drag it to a spot it looks like it might fit in.


View your squeeze page in the other tab , Refresh it and  see it the animation fits properly where you put it.


The animation is overlapping the form code so I am going to move the top, white autoresponder box up a little and the bottom, white autoresponder box down a little in the editor.
I am going to go to my tab with my page and refresh it again to see if the changes were successful.  I found that I had to clear my browsing data after doing this so many times.  So make sure you save you work before logging out of AdCreatorDesign before clearing your browsing data.
As you can see, it fits perfectly!

*ADDING A HYPERLINK TO AN IMAGE OR TEXT



If you want to add a hyperlink to an image such as the photograph of the mountains or the text above it, I have a special code to do this with.

<a href=’http://www.adkreator.com/adkguide.pdf target=’_blank’><img src=’http://www.adkreator.com/images/blank.gif’
height=150 width=400 border=’0′ /></a>
Just replace your link with my Adkreator guide link http://www.adkreator.com/adkguide.pdf and don’t touch anything else.  Leave the code intact.   Don’t delete the single quotation marks around it.   I will show you how to do the rest with screen shots.
 
Paste your code into Word or Google Docs and save it.  Then copy and paste it into the autoresponder box and click the “Submit” button to save it.


Drag the box over the text or image you want to be clickable.  Save Your Work!
 
View the squeeze page in a new tab by clicking on the link.  Test your page by clicking on the image or text you dragged your box over with the code.

 

I clicked on my image on my page after refreshing it and it went to my Adkreator Guide like I wanted it to.
 
If you click on your image or text you put the code over and it doesn’t work, check the code and check your link.    The code has to be exactly like the one I pasted above.
 
If you get really stuck, Skype me for help “barbdel” with no quotation marks, or message me on Facebook and say you are from AdCreatorDesign or Adkreator.

Autoresponders and how they work

 

 

 


An autoresponder is a computer program that automatically sends a message or series of messages sent at a given day and time without human intervention.

 
The autoresponder is all automated once you have set up your email campaigns for your specific lists.  You can create a number of lists to set up emails with an autoresponder.
 
It’s a great way to send out welcome emails and follow-up emails about a specific topic such as:  “How to Build Your List,” “All About Horses,” “How to Cook for One.”
 
The user needs to write up the pre-written messages when setting up autoresponder campaigns.
 
A form code is then generated and put on the squeeze page or landing page to capture the names and email addresses of those that sign up to your list.

What is a Squeeze Page and What Does it Do?

A Squeeze page is a Landing page or Lead Capture page designed to get visitors or leads to fill out an opt-in form with their name and email address.  Another way to put it is that visitors subscribe to your list where they receive a series of follow up emails about the product or service you are trying to sell.  A squeeze page will often have a video or eye-catching graphics, enticing the visitor to stay long enough to sign up to the opt-in list for more information.



Once you are done creating your squeeze page, you can advertise on social networks, traffic exchanges, and opt-in mailers.  You can put the HTML on your website as well.



It is necessary to have an autoresponder to place on your squeeze page to collect the names and email addresses of your prospects that you want to write follow-up emails.  The autoresponder will automatically send them out after you have set up your follow up emails.  Once the autoresponder is set up, it is easy to maintain.

What is a Splash Page and What Does it Do?



A splash page is a page that Webmasters use as a gate between the initial loading of the site and the actual site content.  Splash pages often feature high-design visuals to attract Web users to proceed further into the website.  


In other words:  The splash page is used to get the attention of a prospect to click on a button or other icon that goes to the website.  A variety of graphics and images are used with color psychology to enhance the splash page to it’s greatest potential.  Branding yourself with your picture or logo is highly recommended to get people to know, like, and trust you.  It usually takes 7 times of viewing or more before a user will click on your page.  The more unique and attention-grabbing you make your page, the better chance you have of people going to your website.

Quote for Today

 “Let today be the day you stop being haunted by the ghost of yesterday. Holding a grudge & harboring anger/resentment is poison to the soul. Get even with people… but not those who have hurt us, forget them, instead get even with those who have helped us.”

Interview with Andrea who Designs Pages Using Adkreator

1220_20131224084627

I recently asked Andrea, one of my long time, upgraded customers of Adkreator, to tell me what she uses Adkreator for.
Hi Andrea.  Can you please send me a description of what you use Adkreator for?
 Andrea: “I use Adkreator for a couple of major reasons. First, I use it to Kreate seasonal and various holiday scenes for the festive seasonal emails I send out. I also use these designs as backgrounds on my computer or my Chrome browser, as well as in my emails.”
 
Andrea: “I also use AdKreator to make unique banners and splash pages for myself or friends to promote businesses or products. I am often asked by friends to make seasonal ad banners and splashes for them.”
 1220_20171020013404
How do you want to make money with Adkreator?
 
Andrea: “I would love to be able to sell my seasonal and holiday designs it would be a fantastic way to use my passion for Kreating scenes to make money. I also would like to be able to make more money making banners and splash pages for advertising needs.”
 
Andrea: “Being an artist by genetics, there were many artists use all different mediums in my family, and heart, I always enjoy using Adkreator to express my art and also sometimes use it as a way to relax and forget my worries for a while.”

 

andreahouse
As described by Andrea here, one can use Adkreator for enjoyment and not just for business.  This gives Adkreator a whole new outlook on what it can be used for.
I do require that a person that wants to make money with Adkreator to pay for a  monthly Corporate Upgrade of $29.95.  This helps me pay for my expensive server fees.
I love Adkreator very much and hope to bring in more people that will love it just as much, too.
If you would like to contact Andrea about making you a design, her email address is:  gillwhoa@gmail.com
