Before We Get Started

What you are interested in is to get your visitors to sign up as subscribers, so there are some things you need to keep in mind before we start your first page.

  • Avoid any outbound links
  • Add call to action buttons
  • Embed videos
  • Eye-Catching Design

Time To Get The Ball Rolling

The first thing you will want to do once you login to your dashboard is to scroll down to plugins, and you are going to be adding a new plugin that will be your free landing page creator. In your add new plugin search box type in Elementor, and you will click on install and once installed click on activate.

Now You Are Ready For Business

I will not guide you step-by-step to create your free page with the Elementor plugin, so here is your first step.

  1. Start By Creating A New Page

You can choose either the default editor or use the plugin by clicking on the blue button that says Edit With Elementor, but before clicking on the blue button select Elementor Canvas as the default template. This should provide you with a blank page, you will see the menus and links are no longer on your page and this is how you want your template to appear.

2. Edit With Elementor

If you have not done so, you will want to click on the blue button before starting step 2, you now have the option to use one of the templates provided or build your page from scratch. The templates are your easiest choice, so I am going to guide you on creating your page from scratch.

3. The Page Design

You will choose your page design structure to get started in this step, I recommend a two-column for your first landing page. Next, you will need to choose your style setting so you can add your background. The choices are an image, a gradient background, or a video to use as the background.

Once you have your background option chosen you will need to go to the advanced section, and here you will set your padding and margins to fit your page properly.

Advanced Settings Section

You will now add the description in one column by dragging and dropping the heading and text editor onto your page design, you also have the option to add images and videos as well.

You have just added your heading and text editor in this step

4. Subscription Form

You will need to login to your email marketing service, and select your email list and create an embed signup form. After you customize your form the way you want it you just copy the code, you are now ready to embed your signup form code.

5. How To Embed A Signup Form Code

You will drag and drop the HTML element found in Elementor into the empty column, and then just past your code to embed the signup form onto your page.

Your Landing page Will Look Similar To This

Remove the color code so your form will appear transparent, and now your page is ready to be shown to the world.

6. Publishing Your Landing Page

When you are happy with your page you just hit the publish button, I recommend you save this template for your next landing page. You might be thinking why go through this extra work when I can use pre-made templates, I just wanted you to know how to use this free landing page creator in case you ever want to create your own unique landing page from scratch.

What Is On My Mind Today

I know many new website owners are hesitant about adding plugins on their website, and I was the very same way when I started out. If you ever install a plugin that does not agree with your website theme, you can also deactivate the plugin or delete it completely. These plugins are so useful and valuable to your business, so if you only add one new plugin at a time you can tell if this plugin is going to cause your website problems.

If you are interested in shopping for high-paying affiliate programs I welcome you to visit my Affiliate Store, and I am adding all the time and plan to expand to tools for website owners and other resources in 2020.

  1. Hi Jeff, I found your post useful. I hadn’t been thinking about landing pages yet for my website, but that’s probably something I’ll have to add pretty soon.

    1. Thank You, Mr. Barnett,

      Many people especially new to the business hesitate in using this strategy despite it is
      very effective to focus on just one of your products or services you are trying to promote
      or get sign-ups for newsletters and ebooks to build a mailing list

      I appreciate hearing from you today,
      Jeff

  2. This was really helpful Jeff, thank you! I have had a landing page for a while now through a paid service, but never really took much time to learn about it. I just made what I thought looked good but after reading this I realized I may have made a few mistakes. Time to go back to the drawing board. Thanks so much!

    1. Hello Dan,
      I am happy to hear my article on landing pages has given you some new
      ideas and tips for your next landing page you create. You can even
      make some changes to your present pages if that is possible
      Jeff

  3. Great info Jeff, Thanks for the post.

    A question about posting external links (or not posting them) as described in the Before You Get Started section. I’ve heard that external links in a post help with SEO rankings of your pages, any insight on main reasons for not posting externally?

    Very helpful landing page info that I had not been exposed to before.
    Thank-you

    1. Thank You, Kerry

      I welcome you to my free business training, you really want to insert
      external links in your blog posts for higher ranking with search engines.
      See the more information and resources you provide your visitors with
      external links the higher search engines will rank your posts.

      I recommend more external links than any other links in your posts,
      but spread them out and don’t overuse them so it is obvious you
      are doing it to rank higher on search engines.

      I suggest 5-8 external links per post depending on the length of
      your article and the topic, and if you insert affiliate links or
      banners keep them between 3-5 links and use internal links to
      navigate visitors to other posts on your website and pages.

      If you need any assistance feel free to contact me through
      my contact form on my menus
