Are you confused about landing pages?
You’re not alone. Eddie, a fellow Academy member asked me to create a video on what landing pages are, how you can use them, and what not to do.
And that’s exactly what I did.
In this 15 minute video, we’ll go through the essentials of landing pages. When you’re done watching, you’ll know exactly what to do to create a landing page for your business.

I created my email signup incentive and it’s up as a free product if you sign up for the newsletter. But I created another ebook, and I don’t know where to put it. Should I put it in my newsletter, under my products or somewhere else? Do people often have more free products they give away when people sign up to their newsletter?
You can do several things. You could:
In order for you to build your email list, you have to let people know that you have something to offer.
And you do this by strategically placing your sign-up forms in your sidebar and after your blog posts, at least to start with.
But it’s not enough to use Aweber’s ready-made sign-up forms, because they don’t look professional most of the time, and they don’t allow you to put anything after your blog posts.
For that, you’d need a professional designer, which often costs $100 or more.
The solution is to use a plugin called Elevatr. It’s a plugin a friend of mine has created. I use it on Wake Up Cloud and it’s extremely well-built, not to mention easy to use.
So how much is this plugin going to cost you? Well, the original price is $37 (for the personal option), but I’ve gotten a sweet deal for you for $18.5.
