4. How Can I Upgrade to Pro or Enterprise
if I’m Already a LeadPages Member?

There are two ways to upgrade. First, you can go to the “billing” section of your account and upgrade your own account with a few clicks.

Secondly, if you don’t see a “billing” section inside your account (or you’re uncertain of your membership level), reach out to our support team and they’ll upgrade you.

5. Tell Me More About Creating LeadBoxes with “Content Upgrades.”
How Do Content Upgrades Work?

A content upgrade is a piece of valuable content that you give away with a blog post in exchange for your reader’s email address.

The most powerful content upgrades feature unique, valuable content that’s relevant to that specific blog post. Many LeadPages users are already using this technique to increase their conversions.

To claim this $67 credit, you must create two new different LeadBoxes on two of your blog posts that each give away unique content upgrades.

6. Can You Give Me Examples of Content Upgrades That I Can
Give away with My Two LeadBoxes?

You can give away any valuable content that matches the ideas in your blog posts. Some examples include…

  • A PDF of that blog post
  • A PDF of other relevant blog posts
  • Lists
  • Infographics
  • Spreadsheets
  • Calculators
  • Downloads
  • Mindmaps
  • Transcriptions
  • Resource Guides
  • Or anything else that you can think of that relates to your blog post.

You can see some examples of how other industry-leading bloggers are using LeadBoxes to give away “content upgrades” like this below.

  • Noah Kagan wrote a blog post with his personal audit of KISSMetrics inbound marketing strategy. Then he gave away a “content upgrade” of how to do your own audit for your site. Check it out here.
  • Pat Flynn recorded a podcast with his executive assistant’s email management strategies. Then he gave away a “content upgrade” resource guide with his top five tools for email management. Check his podcast out here.
  • Here on the LeadPages blog: We regularly give away content upgrades with our blog posts. For example, Will Hoekenga just wrote a post called: “The 10 Types of Popular Blogs: Which One Is Yours?” Then he gave away a content upgrade with a three-minute PDF version of this blog post. See it here.

Again, this content upgrade can be as simple as just giving away the PDF download of your blog post. Your content upgrade just has to be relevant to that blog post.

7. You Mentioned Setting up a Split Test.
What’s the Best Thing to Split Test Again?

Yes, to claim this $67 credit, you need to set up a new split test on one of your new LeadBoxes. If you’re unsure of what to split test, we recommend split testing…

  • Button copy on your LeadBox: For example, you could test “Free Instant Access” vs. “Download Now” on your button copy to see which boosts your conversions.
  • Images on your LeadBox: For example, you might split test test the existing arrow image vs. an image of your content upgrade.
  • Headlines on your LeadBox: For example, you might test a “how to” headline like “How to Create a Blog Post in Less Than 30 Minutes” vs. a “number” headline like “6 Ways to Create Blog Post in Less Than 30 Minutes.”

For more on how to set up this LeadBoxes split test, check out the video above.

8. How Long Do I Have to Set Up These Two New LeadBoxes & Split Test?

You have 31 days to implement both the two content upgrade LeadBoxes and your new split test. This means your LeadBoxes and split test should be set up between now and September 29, 2014.

9. When Will You Be Reviewing My LeadBoxes and Split Test…
And When Will I Receive My $67 Credit?

Our in-house team will review your two LeadBoxes and split test after 31 days, so we’ll review entries on or after September 29, 2014. If you complete all steps, you will receive your credit shortly after September 29th.

10. I Already Have LeadBoxes and Split Tests Set Up on My Blog.
Can I Use These to Get This $67 Credit?

Great job for already using LeadBoxes and split tests on your blog!

However, for this promotion, you do need to create two NEW LeadBoxes and one NEW split test between now and September 29th to qualify for this $67 credit.

11. I’m not a Pro or Enterprise Member Yet.
Does this Membership Come with a Guarantee?

Yes, absolutely! Like all new LeadPages memberships, both Enterprise and Pro memberships come with a 30-day money-back guarantee.

If you join today and find for whatever reason that this new Enterprise or Pro membership is not for you, just let us know within 30 days and we’ll issue you a refund ASAP.

The 10 Types of Popular Blogs: Which One Is Yours?

So you’re going to start a blog, or kick the one you’ve neglected back into gear.

You’ve read all the information about why you should have a blog for your business — more traffic, more credibility, more leads, and, ultimately, more sales.

You have the name, a logo, and the page all ready to go. You even know what you’re going to write about.

But you forgot to ask one critical blogging question. . .

What kind of blog are you going to have?

The answer to this question goes beyond identifying key topics. It gets to the heart of other questions like:

What kind of feeling do you want readers to get from your blog?

What will a typical post look like?

What kind of tone will it have?

Will your posts be short and uplifting? Thorough and helpful? Long and fascinating? Revealing? Authoritative?

And, most importantly, how will the blog help build your business?

In my experience, there are 10 types of blogs that succeed at turning leads into customers more than any others. This post will walk you through those 10 types and answer all the questions listed above about each one.

Blog Type #1: The Rogue

Rogues, quite simply, attract attention — both good and bad.

They’re not afraid to bend the rules and go against the grain. They take bold stances on divisive issues. This wins them both admirers and detractors.

The 10 Types of Popular Blogs: The Rogue

Advantages of the Rogue:

  • You get to tell everyone what you really think.
  • You polarize, which attracts attention.
  • You’re cool like Indiana Jones.

Disadvantages of the Rogue:

  • You attract an above-average amount of haters.
  • It’s really tough to pull off without feeling forced.
  • You can’t physically fight your way out of tricky situations like Indiana Jones.

How A Site Based On Pictures Will Make You A Better Writer

What in the world do pictures have to do with great writing?

Turns out, a site full of pictures can help you become a much better copywriter.

It did for me, anyways. And it can for you, too.

The thing is, anyone can write great stuff. I don’t know who you are, person reading this right now, but even YOU can write electric copy that captivates audiences.

How do you do that, though? There are so many great writers out there crafting beautiful pieces of prose every single day.

Let me let you in on a dirty secret most professional writers in any field rarely tell you: they weren’t great writers when they started out.

They had to practice. They had to stare down pages that had more words of criticism on them than words they originally wrote. They had to write hundreds of words only to see them cut to a single sentence.

Through it all, they became better writers.

So how do you get to that point? What can prepare you to write witty, essential copy like the pros without having to suffer the brutal edits and hours?

I suggest starting on the training grounds of Imgur.

[Big Update] LeadBoxes Are Now More Customizable Than Ever

click here to check out LeadBoxes

 

Here at LeadPages when we or our customers achieve significant split test results we often take these winning variations and build them back into the default versions of our landing pages, which you can then customize, however you like. A couple of weeks ago, we released the new LeadPages builder. With this new release, we built two-step opt-in processes right into the landing page builder. So for example this template was once a one-step opt-in but now it defaults to a two-step opt-in out of the box because we found two-step opt-ins work best across the board. In fact, we saw a relative 30% increase in conversions by using a two-step opt-in. We’ve written extensively about why two-step opt-ins work so well so we built that right into our landing pages.  Read More
