Capturing emails is an essential strategy to gather leads. 

In order to grow your email list, the best methodology is to create a lead magnet or offer useful content.

This may sound like an old strategy, but this is what works!

As per recent research, the number of email users will grow to be 3 billion worldwide

Additionally, email has an average ROI of $38 for every $1 spent.

So, how do you capture emails? 

A squeeze page is one of the essential strategies to grow your email list. 

What is a Squeeze Page?

A Squeeze page is a landing page made with the sole aim of gathering email addresses. 

A squeeze page comprises a headline, some text, and a form which must include the name and email address.

Once users reach the landing page and enter their email address, they expect something in return. 

After a user has entered their email address on your squeeze page, you should:

Provide your content offer asap

Users should see a thank you page the moment they provide you the details. 

Also, let them know the next step.

Send automated mail to users.

Tips and Tricks to Create a Squeeze Page to Generate Leads

  1. Call to Action: Remember to ensure that you put only one call to action. The CTA button should be clear, actionable, and visible.
  2. Write to the point, captivating copy: The content should be brief, gripping, readable, and informative. It should influence the user to want to enter their email address.
  3. Include Testimonials: To put a better impact, add some 1-2 testimonials below your form. People get influenced when they see other users are happy with you.
  4. Add Multimedia: The graphics on your page should be attractive.
  5. Deliver an alluring content offer: Your content should have high value, for instance, an email course, templates, or an ebook.

A perfect Squeeze page is not an overnight process.

It would be best if you try A/B testing to understand your user’s preference. Try different calls to action, graphics, or headlines.
