This morning I thought I would check through my free report and squeeze page funnel just to make sure it is up to date and in working order before I buy a solo ad to really test it out.
I have lost count of the number of times I have been through a squeeze page funnel only to find that some of the ads I clicked on the download page did not go anywhere. Often the links in the free report do not work either. This creates a bad impression.
Solo ads are so expensive that I don’t want to throw the money away. It was lucky I checked my Free Traffic Deluge report as I discovered that one of the links inside was out of date. A product that I recommended was “sold out” when I clicked on the link so I have had to find a replacement.
Why am I going for a solo ad?
You might be wondering why I am going for a solo ad. Well, the answer is that they have been recommended by several internet marketers I know as well as Marc Milburn.
Not only are solo ads a quick way of building a list of subscribers but I can also quickly test the conversion of my new optin page and banner ads on my download page.
Old Squeeze Page Funnel
I want to test out my new squeeze page to see how it performs compared with my previous one. When I first set up my Free Traffic Deluge squeeze page I had a fairly simple one. It did not have much in the way of text on it.
When visitors opted in for my Free Traffic Deluge Report they got taken to a confirmation page which told them to watch out for an email from me with the download link for the free report.
When they got that email and clicked on the link they got taken to a download page on which I had banners for more free products and one paid one.
Squeeze page > Confirmation Page > Download Page
New Squeeze Page Funnel
Now I want to try out a more complex squeeze page that I got from James Francis, a very successful internet marketer who really goes out of his way to help people. For a start it has more text on it. I have bullet points on this one whereas there were none on the previous one.
When a visitor opts in a message box pops up telling him that the free report has just been sent to his email box before sending him to a sales page for a low cost affiliate product.
I have this set up for single optin so they do not have to confirm the optin on an email. I have already written a post about this here:
Flirting with Danger With Single Optins.
Testing & Tweaking
If they buy the product the sale helps to cover the cost of the solo ad. If they don’t the sales page diverts to an optin for a free audio from the same marketer who follows up trying to get a sale which would still benefit me as the affiliate.
When they receive the email message and click on the link to get my free report they get taken to a download page with 2 free bonuses and a paid membership product.
There is also a link to a video presentation which is for a paid product. There are several chances for sales in this funnel and I have to test it to see if the offers convert. If not then I will change them for others. Testing and tweaking is an essential part of internet marketing if you want to make money.
