Premium Squeeze Page Templates

A squeeze page is a page specifically designed to achieve the highest conversion rates. If your website doesn't have squeeze pages yet, you're missing out.

Read on to find out about the best way to add conversion optimized squeeze pages to your own website and to learn when to use them and when NOT to use them.

Note: Updated Post

Originally, this article was a review of a product called "Premium Squeeze Page Templates". Unfortunately, this product doesn't exist anymore. But there's good news, too: today, there are far better alternatives to choose from and I'll introduce them below.

The Best Squeeze Page Templates for WordPress

If you build your websites using WordPress, then the best, fastest way to create squeeze pages and landing pages on your site is using the Thrive Architect plugin.

Thrive Architect is a front end, visual page builder plugin for WordPress, which can be used with any theme and on any post or page. In addition, it comes with a huge selection of landing page templates that you can load up and customize for your own needs in record time.

Now, here's an important disclaimer: I'm one of the founders of Thrive Themes, the company that makes Thrive Architect. So, clearly my recommendation of this plugin is biased.

However, I'm not simply recommending my own product with blind enthusiasm. Thrive Architect was originally created because I was creating tons of websites with landing pages, sales pages and lead generation squeeze pages for different products and businesses... and it was frustrating.

There are plenty of themes and plugins for WordPress that let you create really stylish, designer-y looking homepages and websites. And there are more "page builders" these days than you can shake a stick at. But Thrive Architect is still the only product of its kind.

It's the only page builder made specifically for creating and customizing high-converting landing pages. It always was and still is a page building plugin created by passionate marketers, for marketers.

So, if you are primarily a web designer, if you value design over conversions and if you want to create "brochure" websites that are meant to make a good impression, rather than drive a growing business, then there are probably better page builders for you out there.

But if your main focus is on conversions, I don't think you'll find anything better than Thrive Architect.

In Thrive Architect, you can rapidly customize pages thanks to the new Smart Landing Pages feature set and you can get the Thrive Optimize add-on for A/B testing functionality.

Alternatives for Building Squeeze Pages

Here's an overview of some of the most popular page building and landing page creation tools:

  • Unbounce - enteprise level solution mainly made for agencies & PPC landing pages. $79/month+
  • Instapage - highly professional solution, also aimed at agencies and large businesses. $99/month+
  • OptimizePress - used to be the leading page templates solution for WordPress. Fell out of favor recently because it became a bit outdated compared to most competitors. $97 - $297
  • LeadPages - similar to OptimizePress, LeadPages is a former market leader (for non-WordPress pages, in this case) which fell out of favor after a lot of competition arose. $37/month+
  • ClickFunnels - landing page and funnel building software that has become super popular. They have the strongest marketing machine in the industry, but not necessarily the strongest product. $97/month - $297/month
  • Elementor, Brizy, Beaver Builder, Divi - page builder tools for WordPress with a focus on design and creating "normal" web pages. No strong focus on landing pages or conversions, but they can be used to create squeeze pages, with a bit of creativity and integrations with lead generation plugins.

Are Squeeze Pages Still Relevant?

The term "squeeze page" comes from the idea of creating a page that "squeezes" the visitor for their email address. It's a bit of an unpleasant connotation and perhaps you have visions of in-your-face, salesy pages when you hear the term.

In fact, some of the templates in the original review in this article have that over the top, in your face style to them:

Premium Squeeze Templates

Some old-school squeeze pages on display.

Bold, red headlines and arrows pointing at buttons and opt-in forms aren't very charming. But keep in mind: these templates are from a product that is many years old and a modern squeeze page doesn't have to look like this.

It's about the principle. And the principle in this case is: less distraction.

A typical homepage, web page or blog post usually gives a visitor many options. The idea is that the visitor can engage with the content or click on one of many navigation links to browse the website further. A squeeze page aims to boil everything down to just one choice: take the desired action or leave the website.

This makes sense and is as relevant now as it has always been, primarily because of what's usually called the paradox of choice: the more options someone is presented with, the less likely they are to take any action at all.

A squeeze page is a highly focused page. It's about one thing and one thing only, without the distraction of navigation menus, ads, pop-up notifications and outbound links. That's what makes it a conversion focused page.

And according to Hubspot, businesses that use more landing pages get 55% more leads than businesses that use fewer or no landing pages. So on the whole, using this type of page seems to work favorably for businesses.

Squeeze Page Template Examples

With that said, let's take a look at some example templates that break the "big, red headline" mold and demonstrate that a well designed, modern squeeze page is possible.

Stylish Fashion Squeeze Page

Chic fashion squeeze page

This is a typical, minimal lead generation page. Visitors can sign up to the newsletter and receive a free PDF.

Apart from the footer links, there are no navigation links or outbound links on the page. The message and design are simple and elegant. The page is made to be visually appealing.

The Most Common Type of Squeeze Page

Coming soon page template example

Probably the most common use for a pure, minimal and highly focused squeeze page is the "coming soon" page. If you're working on a new project or giving your site a full overhaul, why not use a stylish squeeze page to announce the launch date and get some initial email leads?

Minimal & Branded

Fitness themes email lead generation page

A classic squeeze page doesn't include your website's header and footer. 

Why not?

Because the header and footer usually contain not just your logo and branding elements, but also navigation links, links to social profiles, etc. Adding these elements re-introduces too much choice back to the squeeze page.

But that doesn't mean a squeeze page can't fit your brand and style. As you can see from the example above, even a sleek, minimal template can be highly brand-recognizable, through the use of colors, fonts and images.

Squeeze Page for a Webinar

Webinar registration page

Want to get people to sign up to your next live webinar? This too, is best done using a squeeze page. Although a page like this contains more content and information, it's still a squeeze page. It still reduces everything to one simple choice: register, or don't.

For webinars, having good squeeze page templates can be crucial because many webinar platforms such as GoToWebinar or Zoom are hopelessly inadequate from a conversion standpoint. Using their default registration pages is not recommended.

The Bottom Line: Use Squeeze Pages... and Test Them!

The bottom line is: whatever your online business is about, you could probably get results by implementing some highly focused landing pages. And you don't have to settle: even a page that is completely focused on conversions can be well designed and customized to match your brand.

As a final note, one of the greatest benefits of squeeze pages is that they can be rapidly deployed - and tested.

I highly recommend that you get into the habit of A/B testing your landing pages, especially if you're driving paid traffic. It can make the difference between a loss or a profitable campaign. But more than that, A/B testing and seeing the results can teach you more about marketing and copywriting than any blog, book or course can!

    Hi Shane,

    Thanks for taking the time and effort doing the detailed review. Appreciate that very much.

    You seem to have a natural talent in doing these kind of
    “how to” videos. Keep it up.

    Best!
    Welly Mulia

    • Shane says:

      Thanks for your comment, Welly!

      • Orlando Batista says:

        Is premium sqeeze page good on Mac. Thanks for input.

      • Shane says:

        It’s platform independent, as it’s meant to run on websites. There are Mac HTML editors you can use to edit these templates, although I can’t tell you which ones are likely to be the best ones.

  • The pages do look pretty nice, but I do get turned off by the typical sales blather. $1410 value? Yeh, Right!

    The actual price of $47 does seem pretty fair though.

    • Shane says:

      I know what you mean. I think after a certain point, you’ve just seen too many sales-messages and they all seem too similar, so you kind of tune out.

      All that common stuff is simply what tends to be effective, which is why we see so much of it.

  • The link for $10 off isn’t working. Is this still a valid discount?

    • Shane says:

      He Jared,
      Thanks for the heads-up! I’ll get in touch with Welly and see that we can get it sorted out.

    • Welly Mulia says:

      It’s actually working.

      Shane’s link to the $10 discount should be:
      http://premiumsqueezepagetemplates.com/shane.html

      Shane made a mistake of inserting this url:
      activegrowth.com/premiumsqueezepagetemplates.com/shane.html

      :)

      • Shane says:

        Thanks! Can’t believe I got the wrong link, somehow. I fixed it in the post, as well.

  • Way cool, Shane! Do you know if Kompozer works on a Mac? Also, how do people find squeeze pages? It is a question of getting the page to rank or is there some other trick that helps the page get found?

    • Shane says:

      Thanks for your comment! Apparently, there is a Mac version of Kompozer. At least, according to the “alternativeto.net” website.

      Squeeze pages are generally promoted “directly”, as they are very difficult to rank in Google (Google likes to see lots of related content…). In other words, people find squeeze pages through direct links in articles, e-mails etc.

      • Joan Stewart says:

        Thanks Shane,

        The explanation on how the squeeze page operates really got the “penny” to drop…takes awhile for some.

        Your video content is appreciated and will possibly assist me to make up my mind with regards to this offer.

      • Shane says:

        Glad to help! :)

  • Nice templates, and good video.
    Worthy of a collaboration, I might get in touch with them!
    Thanks again,
    Matt

  • Tony says:

    Hey Shane

    Good recommendation, been looking for a solution on this for a couple of weeks but couldn’t cut through the hype

    The quality of these looks great, better than anything I can produce

    Thanks Tony

    • Shane says:

      Hey Tony,

      Thanks for your comment. Yeah, I’m very happy with these and I don’t know of any other templates offer with this much variety and quality.
      Real time-saver for me. Plus, it allows me to make pages that look like I know what I’m doing. :D

      Cheers,
      Shane

  • matina says:

    Hi Shane,
    Thanks for this presentation.
    Like other, I have been looking and lurking in order to find something decent, without much conviction.
    I will bookmark this, as I consider using SqueezePages in the future.
    Have a nice evening,
    Matina

  • steve ekness says:

    Hi shane i purchased the premium templets and download the kompozer zip file and exstracted the files but can not get it going is there any place can help me

    Steve

    • Shane says:

      Hi Steve,

      What exactly isn’t working? Something about the templates or something to do with Kompozer?

      If it’s the templates, get in touch with customer support (http://wellymuliasupport.com/tdp/). If it’s Kompozer, a Google search will probably be the quickest way to find an answer (e.g. “Kompozer tutorials” or “how to do X with Kompozer”).

  • josep says:

    Great info on your videos , thx for sharing , it was very helpful !!

  • Marvin says:

    his is cool. Thanks! I do appreciate these as I am new to it. I am trying to use Optimise Press right now as a start,..wha do you think about it?

    • Shane says:

      Optimize Press is a very good, WordPress based solution.

  • Steve says:

    Is it possible to post articles to these templates? I would like to have a main landing page (ie., your templates) and then post articles, ads, etc using Market Samurai. Would this be possible?
    Thanks
    Steve

    • Joe says:

      Shane: It appears that the only thing “wordpress” with this product is a single WP theme that’s thrown in with the graphics package. Is this correct?

      I would be interested to know if these templates are static pages and are not WP themes.
