If you haven’t yet invested in LeadPages, consider yourself warned.
By the end of this post, I hope you can sense my absolute LOVE for LeadPages and all that it is.

In a recent post on the 3 different types of landing pages you should be using in your business to build your email list fast, I mentioned that I loved LeadPages for creating said landing pages. From there, I had many people ask me for a tutorial on how I use LeadPages for my business, so that’s what this is all about.
The majority of the time I use LeadPages for standalone landing pages where I’m giving away one of my freemium products like an eBook, email series or something along those lines.
Pages like this one:
And this one:
The main purpose for these pages is so that you have a special URL to send people to when you reference one of your free lead gen products, rather than sending them to your website so they can hunt around for the right opt-in.
Creating these LeadPages is pretty simple, so instead, I wanted to show you how I use LeadPages in a different way to add hundreds of brand new subscribers to my email list every week.
The LeadPages game changer
The biggest difference I see with LeadPages vs it’s main competitors (and half the reason I freaking love this tool) are LeadBoxes.
LeadBoxes are popup boxes that appear when you click on a button, link or image.
Here’s an example of a LeadBox I created for a recent blog post:
That one LeadBox added 95 new subscribers to my email list in 5 days.
All that was required to do this was 1) creating a new LeadBox, and 2) creating a free lead gen PDF, which is typically just a PDF version of my blog post with a little bit of extra content to sweeten the deal.
Below I show you the step-by-step for creating your new LeadBox and adding it to your WordPress blog post.
