How To Install OptimizePress Plugin Via WordPress

OptimizePress can be installed via FTP or directly through WordPress. Many prefer to install the plugin directly on WordPress because it is quicker and more convenient. However, do take note that some hosting companies put a cap on the file size that can be uploaded to websites through WordPress. In such cases, the OptimizePress support theme can work around this limit on file uploads. All you have to do is to provide them with your website’s URL, FTP details and your logins for your WordPress site.

Here’s how you can install the plugin via WordPress.

 

The first thing you need to do is login to your WP admin dashboard. Once you have logged in, click on the Media button found on the left side of the screen and then click on Add New. You will then be redirected to the Upload New Media page. Notice the Maximum upload file size found at the bottom of the page. If the maximum allowable file size is below 30 MB, you may need to reconfigure your WP Config file or simply enlist the help of the OptimizePress support team. However, if the allowable file size exceeds 30 MB, you may proceed with the uploading of the plugin.

Again, on the left hand side of the screen, click on Plugins and then click on Add New. You will then be redirected to another page. On the upper left portion of the screen under the Install Plugins title, click on Upload. Then, click on the Choose File button. A window containing your downloaded files will then appear. Choose the OptimizePress plugin zip file and click Open.

Optimizing Your Web Business With The IMScalable Template

Attract. Engage. Sell. It’s the webpreneur’s mantra. When you’ve achieved all three and done so consistently, you’ll be able to reap the (lucrative) rewards of having an online business. Here’s the million-dollar question though: How do you attract, engage, and sell — for as little investment as possible?

 

For many successful Web startups and small organizations, that has been possible by using high converting marketing pages — from landing pages to membership portals — created by OptimizePress. Offering multiple marketing pages you can use without any technical experience and no coding necessary, OptimizePress has helped many marketing professionals and webrepreneurs be at par with industry leading sites. Today, OptimizePress announces yet another groundbreaking addition to its successful platform and it is called IMScalable.

 

The IMScalable template, which is an opt-in template, has been split-tested by optimization and traffic whiz Justin Brooke who shares that it has been his highest converting landing page.

 

Here’s how to download and use the IMScalable Template:

· Log in to your OptimizePress members area. Then scroll down to the Your Download section where you will see Extra Downloads, which contains additional downloadable content. Click this section, and you’ll be taken to the IMScalable page.

· On the LiveEditor page, you can alter the elements according to your requirements. These include: putting your own logo; adding credibility badges (i.e., “rated highly by so and so business news agency” or “ranked by international ranking agency”), which should enhance the authority of your opt-in page; the headline text, which according to Justin converts best when it says, “Free report reveals …” and the body text, which features bulleted points to make it easier for your target market to see the benefits of what you’re offering (e.g., free infographic, e-books, etc.), in return for their subscription.

You can also change the Download Now image to fit your brand but Justin has discovered that the Free PDF image has worked remarkably well with conversion.

 

· Once you’re done modifying the page, click on the Opt-in form to integrate with your autoresponder and the Opt-in Box will appear so you can make the necessary changes, including the Custom Button.

LeadPages Split Test Case Study: How To Boost Your Response By 307%

Making decisions based on actual, accurate and evidence-based information can present a significant boost to business owners looking for immediate growth strategies. In the case of one LeadPages customer, the boost is precisely 307 percent. What’s interesting is that this huge increase was made possible with just a seemingly simple tweak in the opt-in page. The customer wouldn’t have applied this game-defining change if not for the split test they implemented using LeadPages.

leadpages-307-percent-minor-tweak

The original version
The opt-in page in question is owned by award-wining author Amanda Stevens. The page shows the striking red cover of her book titled “Retail Revival” on the left-hand side. On the right side is the original headline declaring “New Book Reveals Rescue Remedies for Retailers” in bold letters. Under it, in smaller font, is the subhead and a short reader’s review. Running along the bottom line is an offer for a free sneak peak at some of the chapters of the book.

leadpages-307-percent-choice-A

The second version
Everything is the same, except for one simple change: the headline, revised to “If you’re a retailer in need of fresh ideas and proven growth strategies, this book is for you!”

leadpages-307-percent-choice-B

The shocking results
Ms. Stevens ran an A/B split test to see how her conversions will be affected by the headline change. The wining headline dominated by an astonishing 307.77 percent. The second version – the one with the headline that directly addresses the reader – won hands down. As a writer, Ms. Stevens had an inkling that the second headline might perform better. But she was able to validate her theory and confirm just exactly how much impact it could have only through the split test.

leadpages-307-percent-increase-for-headline-2

The LeadPages numbers
A 95 percent probability is usually enough to determine the effectiveness of a variation. The LeadPages split test platform showed that the second headline had a 99.98 percent probability, with a 307.77 percent response rate.

 

LeadPages offers its pro members an innovative system of doing fast, easy-to-implement split testing. Basically, all you have to do is use the “add variation” functionality to set up your choice B page. After you have saved the changes, the split test is immediately ready for implementation. Armed with timely and accurate information, you can now make decisions that leave nothing to chance. Start testing by getting LeadPages HERE.

Brand New Webinar Registration Page Templates Outperform LeadPages’ Highest Converting Page

Online marketing strategies are continuously upgrading and the latest provisions outperform their top-performing predecessors. The highest converting page by LeadPages has been dethroned, but not by the efforts of a different company – seeing that there’s still a lot of room for improvement for their previous offering, LeadPages worked its magic and upcycled a great product thought up by a fierce ally and competition. They worked on the templates from the ground up to achieve more as far as conversion is concerned.

leadpages-webinar-registration-page-magic

The new templates that can be used for webinar registration pages were designed by in-house designer Stella, and they are absolutely beautiful. But not only that, in a split test against the previous high-performing template created by James Schramko, there was an automatic difference with the results — with the new templates performing significantly better, of course. What was determined through the test was that pages with a high call to action, even when it’s in the header, outperform pages with low calls to action. Likewise, Gideon Shalwick’s lesson on pages with countdown timers outperforming pages without countdown timers proved to be true as well in increasing the effectiveness of the templates.

leadpages-webinar-registration-page-james-schramko-page

But of course, major props to James Schramko for coming up with a really good basic design for LeadPages to build upon; all the additional efforts to improve it were inspired because it was that effective.

 

OK, so now you have high calls to action and the countdown timer, but the improvement doesn’t end there. LeadPages also managed to turn the page into one that works with one or two hosts. On top of this, it also blurred out the mind map in the background, which is a good strategy because people can’t read it easily, hence their curiosity level goes up and they choose to opt in. Here’s more: LeadPages added the ability to have multiple bullet points and there’s also a call to action button at the bottom. You can disable (just) these elements, or if you’d like to turn everything off from a separator down to the bottom of the page, you may do so as well.

In a nutshell, comparing the previous with the new, what can beat the improved, fortified versions that also maintain the values that have made the previous offering great?

 

These new templates are super easy to customize and those who want to learn the process can follow the provided tutorial online. In just a matter of minutes, they can create webinar registration pages that secure unbeatable high conversions. Click here to get started immediately!

Having a program that can offer complete business process automation became a reality only in 2006, when CEO and founder Landon Ray, Principal System Architect Steven Schneider and CTO Pin Chen. In 2007, its first version was released and more innovations came after that.

Just after a few years from the first version’s release, WordPress integration and payment processing modules were added.

 

In 2011, Ontraport’s marketing platform, SendPepper, fused with OfficeAutopilot to give a wider and more comprehensive list of features to both company’s clients and potential customers. This update enables users to access both their accounts and use it to innovate other services and applications. Because of this, OfficeAutopilot is now known as Ontraport OfficeAutopilot.
