Optimize Press Review – Why it is a MUST HAVE for generating Squeeze and Sales Pages

November 4, 2010

Optimize PressThis is the first in a series of videos that I will be doing reviewing Internet Marketing products and services. It can be very overwhelming to find out what works and what doesn't, and I know that there are A LOT of people who struggle and end up wasting a bunch of money on the next “Hot Product”. So I've decided to invest some time reviewing some of the products (especially the ones I find useful). Stay tuned for more iReviews in the future.

A few weeks ago, I was looking to redesign my 7 Day Bootcamp course. I needed a very attractive squeeze page that was optimized for conversions. I wanted that when people visit the site, they feel enticed to enter their email address and sign up for the course.

I considered biting the bullet, spending the money and hiring someone, but then I found out about Optimize Press, a wordpress theme that allows you to generate an unlimited amount of Squeeze Pages, Sales Pages, Launch and Prelaunch pages and much more.

It was EASY to set up, and looks very good. Watch the video above for a detailed review of optimize press, a video Walkthrough, a list of what I consider to be the pros and the cons, and see why I came to the final verdict that Optimize Press is a must-have for anyone looking for a quick and easy way to make squeeze and sales pages.

Looking Forward to YOUR success!

    You know, as a graphic designer I like to design my own squeeze pages… but after watching this video… my mind is like, “I WANT IT I WANT IT…” The simplicity of the back office and the template designs is very attractive.. I think this is the product that many affiliate internet marketers are using if im not mistaken…

    Thanks leslie you’ve given me something to think about!

    • Hey Mario,

      I hear ya. That’s exactly what I thought when I first saw it and it took me all of 5 minutes to get it, lol.

      There aren’t a ton of people using Optimize Press as yet because it’s relatively new. However, a lot of people have designed their squeeze and sales pages using the same principles that Optimize Press does automatically, so yes, it will look relatively familiar.

      The other thing I like about it is the range of possibilities. You can add testimonials and a bunch of other cool features at the click of a button.

    • Mario Shamir says:

      Understood… I actually went back into your 7 day boot camp emails, which i happily saved by the way, and noticed you changed the layout. This is Optimize Press? Wow it looks amazing. This is a better investment than out-sourcing for coders… Thanks Leslie

    • Hey, it sure beats spending a few hundred or thousand dollars. And you can use it on all your sites. It’s good stuff šŸ™‚

  • Monique says:

    Leslie,

    I’m so glad to see this review. I bit the bullet too and purchased OptimizePress two days ago. I’m really enjoying changing over my project in development over to OptimizePress.

    Your new squeeze page looks wonderful.

    Take care,

    Monique

    Optimize Press is indeed a good introduction. Every one who wants success should adopt it. Thank you. Saif

    An interesting review…. I had been looking at one of these, I saw squeezetheme and their salespage theme from unique blog designs but it’s overpriced in my opinion… I may actually go for this one. I’ll be sure to use your link when I do .. šŸ™‚

    btw. what program did you make your presentation with?

    • Actually Greg, Squeezetheme is the one that I had on the 7 Day Bootcamp at first. There are a number of things I just don’t like about it. That’s why I started looking for something else. I will probably do a post comparing the two, but in my opinion, Squeezetheme is better.

      In terms of my presentation, I use Keynote, which is the Mac alternative to Powerpoint. It is pretty sleek. It has really nice transitions and works very well with images.

      You can do a lot of the same things with powerpoint, but of course, it won’t have the “Steve Jobs” effect šŸ˜‰

    • Lawrie says:

      Hi Leslie

      Did you mean Squeezetheme is better than Optimize Press?

    • No Lawrie, I meant that Optimize Press (in my opinion), is much better than Squeeze theme, for a number of reasons. I will probably go into why I think that in a later post.

    • Greg says:

      Thanks Leslie šŸ™‚

    • You are very much welcome Greg.

  • eshopwiz says:

    wow, this is exactly what I needed. Perfect. I can use it for multiple projects I am working on right now.

    I put up a job on elance to get a html squeeze page built, plus graphics. Average quote back was $300.

    Instead I bought this plugin, and got graphics done for $67 on warrior forum. Half price, plus I can use the plugin for 3 projects I am working on right now, and probably more in the future.

    Thanks for the share!

  • Brian says:

    Hi Leslie, this is really helpful. Can you say more about the integration of OptimizePress and Wishlist Member? I’m on the verge of creating my first membership site (which would deliver modules of training comprised of a combination of text, audios, videos, and downloadable documents.I want something that looks good and is easy to implement, and is relatively low cost. So I’m looking at investing in OptimizePress and WishListMember….Have you found them to be a good combination?

    • That’s a good question Brian.

      There’s an update that’s due anytime now that will provide a very tight integration with wishlist. When I got optimize press two weeks ago, they said that they would be releasing that update in two or three weeks. That will be a great combination because you can provide sequential content in a protected way with previews as to what is coming next and when.

      As of right now, the integration with wishlist is the same type of integration like any other theme has, so it still works very well. I would definitely recommend it for the type of project you are describing.

    • Hey Brian, Just letting you know that OptimizePress just updated to integrate with Wishlist. It’s AWESOME!

  • Tina says:

    Hi Leselie
    Thanks for providing such a nice review. I’ve got a question if I’ve already have a wordpress custom platform already, is there anyway I can incorporate this in the already existed platform?

    take care
    Tina

    • Hi Tina, Yes it is something you can incorporate. You can add a new wordpress installation specifically for whatever it is you are selling, or asking people to opt in for. That’s what I will be doing on one of my other sites, and I think it will work very well. I just checked out your blog and it has a clean look that I think would work well with Optimizepress. You should definitely check it out!

    • Hmm Tina, this is strange. I knew I responded here to you a week ago, but for some reason it isn’t showing up. So here’s my response again. Yes, you can incorporate this in what you already have. I’m going to be doing that for my biology site by adding another wordpress installation, installing the theme to that and customizing it to match my existing design. That’s always an alternative.

  • Pete says:

    Hey Leslie, great review. I think I am gonna buy this cool theme right away.
    Can You tell me how you made this nice looking video-review?
    It looks very professional. Which programm(s) did you use?

    Thanx, Pete

    • Hi Pete,

      That’s a great question. I think I will make a post this week detailing that process. To make a long story short, this is what I use:

      – Keynote on the Mac (it’s like Powerpoint on the PC but better)
      – Screenflow on the Mac – I use it to record the screen. Alternatives on the PC are Camtasia or Camstudio (free)
      – Rode Podcaster Mic – it’s a USB mic that allows me to get good quality audio.

      That’s pretty much it.

    Thaks for this review. I will be able to use this one now. Optimise press will do me good.

  • Mvlocsin says:

    Great review here! Thanks. Definitely I will download optimise press. I am new to these business but I think this product will give me an advantage. Thanks!

  • Margaret says:

    Excellent site and tutorials. Thank you, it was very helpful!

  • cliewe says:

    anyone use this in Malay Language

    • The theme itself is in english. You would have to set it up in English. However, you can use it to make a website that is in any language. WordPress themes are set up that way. So yes, you can use it for a website in the Malay Language.

  • Josh says:

    Leslie top review bro

    I was looking for a review on OptimizePress and find your site – so I am a virgin to your site, but I will definitely check out what you got to offer. Just shows that product reviews are a good way to generate traffic.

    I to plan on integrating wishlist and optimize press I will be sure to use your link šŸ™‚

    • Hey Josh, thanks for checking out the site. Yep, optimize press is awesome and integrates well with Wishlist. I’m actually working on a project now integrating it with Digital Access pass.

      You’ll definitely like OP.

  • Diana says:

    Hi, thanks for the video.
    Do you know if I can use optimizepress and wishlist members in woothemes????

    • Hi Diana,

      Optimizepress is a wordpress theme. So you wouldn’t use it with woothemes, because those are also themes. However, you can definitely use it with Wishlist Member. It integrates very well with it, and I think they even have video tutorials showing how to integrate the two.

  • Optimisepress says:

    AĀ  good Squeeze Page Software can quickly
    develop your pages. Yeah, I agree! Optimise Press is also good especially for
    those who are novice like me.

  • Veronique says:

    Hello Leslie,

    Thanks for this great review.

    OptimizePress sounds great, but I am still not 100 % sure it would be the right fit for my website.

    I have recently read that Google does not like squeeze pages, and I would like to make sure it is safe to have squeeze pages on my site? Do I risk to get penalized for that?

    I already have a theme installed on my website (Elegant Theme) and I like it very much. Can I use the OptimizePress theme just for my squeeze page and keep my Elegant theme for the rest of my website?

    My site is in French. Do you know if all the buttons and pages can be customized and translated in French?

    Thanks for your help and for the quality content you are providing.

    Regards from Europe,
    Veronique

    • Hi Veronique,

      I don’t think that statement about Google not liking squeeze pages is true/relevant. Google does like content-rich pages. So, the more content you have the better. Personally, I don’t optimize my squeeze pages for search engine traffic. For me, they serve a different purpose. My main content pages are on my blogs. So I wouldn’t worry too much about that.

      In terms of using the theme you already have on your blog and using OptimizePress for your squeeze pages, that’s exactly what I do. This blog has it’s own custom theme, but the membership area with all the squeeze pages are on a separate wordpress installation with OptimizePress. That’s definitely what I would recommend.

      Hope that helps!

  • Veronique says:

    Hello Leslie,

    Thanks for your answer and for the tips. That is very helpful.

    Is Optimize Press something that only can be used with WordPress sites or can I use it with an existing html site?
