If there is one thing that we can all agree on is that the money is in the list. If you are not collecting email addresses to send out your newsletters, you are missing out on so much more than just revenue. I have already blogged about certain plugins, such as Bloom, where you can create the Ultimate Email Opt-In form that WPOutcast is currently using, but what about lead pages? Landing pages can help funnel interested visitors into your list, giving it a high value. This blog post will talk about the InstaBuilder plugin that we are now using. What impresses me about this plugin is the dashboard set up and how easy it is to create a lead page.
First, let me mention some of the notable Instabuilder plugin features.

This plugin has so many features and you have endless possibilities in customizing your landing pages. Here is a preview of the first one I created after I purchased this plugin.
You’ll see this landing page live in action if you join our newsletter and get the book!
The countdown timer is a pretty cool feature. You can set the countdown time to cookie tracking. This means if I enable the cookies in my web browser and I visit the landing page, the clock will start. If I visit the landing page 2 days later, I lost 2 more days and the offer will expire when the clock hits zero. There are several ways you can set up this countdown feature. Let’s get to how to use the InstaBuilder plugin.
The dashboard is totally awesome and will show you detailed stats. As you can see, I don’t have any as of right now. I created one landing page and the one visitor is myself. I’m sure I’ll have stats to look at eventually. While still on the dashboard, if you scroll down a little more, you can see the groups or pages that you created with easy access to edit them or create new ones.
Create Landing Pages
For the sake of this tutorial, I’ll walk you through the process of doing this yourself. The only thing you need to do is come up with some catchy content and layout the page to suit your needs. After hitting “create landing page”, you should be on this screen:
(over 20+ different templates to choose from)
Hover your mouse cursor over the images to get a full-screen preview or click to select one and begin editing your page. After you have selected your page, its time to make it beautiful.
I selected a template and uploaded the screenshot below. I have gone ahead and pointed to the things you can use to customize the landing page. You can upload files from your blog’s media library or upload images from your computer. The possibilities are endless when customizing your page. That’s why this InstaBuilder 2.0 plugin is recommended. The cost is cheaper than some of its competitors.
Let’s show a sneak peek of some internal settings for controlling any landing page you create. Each section of the template has custom settings to choose from. I can delete anything, drag and drop items, upload my own images…etc
Since I love the clock feature, I’ll just go ahead and show you its settings.
SEO Page Settings
Yes, you can make any page that you create SEO friendly. Write a custom title, description, and even add keywords. You can even no-follow the landing page if you don’t want it indexed. This plugin has all the tools that you need. All you have to do is create and publish these pages for your specific campaigns. Here is one more image of the most important settings to really make this page come alive.
I was not going to do this but here is my very first landing page I created after I installed this plugin. As I use this plugin and tinker around a lot more, the pages will become so much better. There is big potential with this plugin and I’m going to take advantage of it. Are you?
Here is a video to watch that shows you a lot more.
