Should you use a "squeeze page" on your website, or have these pages lost their effectiveness?

What is a "squeeze page"? It's simply a page you place in front of the rest of your site that requires visitors to give up their name and email address before they get to see any information.

This technique still works like magic -- as long as you do it carefully, and offer a "bribe" that is truly appealing and valuable to your visitors.

Here are some things to think about

It is important to build your email list; the more subscribers you have, the more sales you can make.

The challenge in today's internet marketing world is it's harder than ever to convince people to opt in. A squeeze page is probably the best list building tool available, but you must be careful. Using a squeeze page the wrong way can hurt your business more than it helps.

The best place to use a squeeze page is as the "gate" to your salesletter. That means using it on a site that sells only one product, not on a catalog-style site. The list you build from such a squeeze page will be highly targeted.

One of the biggest mistakes I see being made online is putting a squeeze page in front of the wrong kinds of sites.

Sites that are intended to sell one targeted product or service, through direct response promotion, are good candidates for the squeeze page approach. Portals, branding sites, and blogs should not be protected by a squeeze page.

Just keep in mind that your squeeze page is a barrier to what is behind it.

It keeps people out of your website and it can potentially scare off your customers.

When you offer the right kind of bribe, however, you can get people to opt in through the squeeze page -- building a valuable, targeted email list.

The growing problems of spam, viruses and spyware have made people more reluctant than ever to give up their name and e-mail address.

The answer to this issue is simple, in my opinion. Squeeze pages can build your list super-fast; you just have to choose the right websites and scenarios in which to use them.
