What is a squeeze Page?
Hello folks, today we are going to talk about one of the basic parts of our marketing funnel, the squeeze page. A squeeze page is a capture page with a form to opt in.

The goal of the squeeze page is to obtain the visitor’s email address. Additional information could distract the user or cause them to click away to a different website. Squeeze pages are often used in conjunction with an email autoresponder to begin delivering information as soon as the visitor confirms their email address. The autoresponder is used to send a series of follow-up emails or to provide an immediate download link to get information. A small similar to a squeeze page is an opt-in form, or a widget opt-in form. Awidget opt-in form can be placed on your blog up and right, or in many other places like the footer and the header.

Tips for making a killing squeeze page
Every Squeeze Page contains almost the same basic parts and is focused on a single goal – obtaining the visitor’s email address.
These parts are as follows:

- A bulleted list of benefits, explaining why you need the product or service.
- A picture of the product or service if it is applicable.

- Optional audio or video. Video marketing is a very powerful tool and can enhance conversion rate.
- A signature or a picture of the list owner.

This can be done only through testing, and especially split testing.Split test your sqeeze pages before spending any bog money in advertising. Start small with a tiny budget and keep only what works.
One of the cons of squeeze pages and search engine optimization is that they don’t rank well in the search engines in the penguin era. That is because squeeze pages don’t have a lot of content. A few ways to increase content on a squeeze page is to add a blog at the bottom of the page. This design keeps the squeeze page basics such as opt in form, bullet points, and video, at the top of the page. At the bottom of the page you’ll find more content and product information.
