Splash Pages - make the most of them!

Nov 22nd 2010 at 5:41 PM

It's pretty much accepted that splash pages are necessary if you are going to make an impact with your advertising. If nothing else, they show your enthusiasm. If you are an honest person, you simply can't make a decent splash page unless you are very keen on the program involved!

I'm an amateur where web page making is concerned, but I've found a few places where you can make splash pages for free, and I use these to the full:

ClickVoyager

TEToolbox

EasyHits4U

I had an account at InstantSplash, but they deleted my account (which means I lost the splashes I'd made!) because I didn't log in often enough...

But there's more to it than just making and advertising a splash page. Because anyone surfing the TEs daily will be exposed to your splash page on a regular basis, if you wish to, you can make your splash page become an updating dialog. Don't be complacent, don't rest on your laurels. Review your pages regularly and tweak them. People will notice!

To illustrate... I was excited about CashGopher when I first joined, and made a couple of splash pages for it. I got several signups quite quickly. But a couple of days ago, I noticed I hadn't had any new signups for weeks! So I looked at my TEToolbox splash page and immediately saw that I could "improve and update" it with an added sentence, and a simplification of a couple of the bullet points. The next day I got two new referrals! I know it wasn't a coincidence.

Updating your splash page shows viewers that you still love that program. Your update might answer a question someone had. At the very least it shows you are alive and kicking! lol ... it's kinda the opposite of advertising a site that says "this account is closed". (It always amazes me how many of those you see! People leave a program but keep advertising it? Sheesh.... lol!)

Idea: Put shortcuts for all of your splash pages in a folder in your bookmarks, and every so often, open them all and have a read. Think about how you could improve them, update them, add a bit of humour, simplify a thought, remove a repetitious idea ... you will be surprised how a simple change can add to your success!

Hi Brenda. Thats a great posting. I am no wizard at building splash pages either, but getting better all the time. I use TE Toolbox extensively (I am upgraded here) and learning more each time I use it. Also use Easy Hits4U's - very user friendly- as a free member here.
