In Today’s Interview…

LeadPages Co-founder, Clay Collins and Tim Page will show you:

  • The inspiration behind our latest lead-gen tool: LeadLinks.
  • 3 scenarios where you would want to use LeadLinks in your business, instead of a regular landing page or LeadBox.
  • The “affiliate effect:” How to use LeadLinks when affiliates mail on your behalf.
  • Why LeadPages was built on the back of two-step opt-in processes, and why LeadLinks is the first “zero-step opt-in.”

Examples of Two-Step Opt-ins

  • Hi Tim and Clay
    Looking forward to subscribing to this podcast. Hopefully you’ll add it to Stitcher as well as iTunes. Thanks for all the details on best practice for using LeadLinks guys!

    • And perhaps an mp3 download? 🙂

      • Kat Von Rohr

        We’ll see what we can do. 🙂 Thanks Leah!

    • Kat Von Rohr

      Great to hear you’re excited about the podcast! Thanks Lleane! 🙂

    • Hi Ileane! I’m really glad you’re excited for the podcast! We will definitely have it on both Stitcher and iTunes! Cheers!

  • NickEllison

    Ok, loving this idea, I will defiantly test it out. Can you just in really simple terms please explain how the lead links works with affiliates. I’m thinking if I generate the leadlink, give it to an affiliate, how does that get tracked back to the affiliate? It’s sounds awesome I just need to get my head around that bit!! lol

    Just listened to a Amy Porterfield webinar with I love marketing podcast she is well worth following, and will be putting this all to good use great job again Leadpages 😉

    • Kat Von Rohr

      She’s great, isn’t she? 🙂 Thanks for the kind words Tom.

  • I have Infusionsoft, which lets you do what LeadLinks does within emails. However, you can’t do the same thing on a website. LeadLinks will allow me to put the same kind of one-click registration links into my membership sites, which is something I’ve been looking for!

    • Kat Von Rohr

      Awesome to hear! Thanks Jeffrey. 🙂

    • Cheryl Coates Hunt

      That’s true, Jeffrey – although, if your membership site is through CustomerHub via Infusionsoft, you can use your Infusionsoft automation links. Not to take anything away from LeadLinks at all…just wanted to mention 🙂

  • Gonzalo Paternoster

    Do you have a working sample we can see?

  • Wow, this is the most exciting thing that has happened since Tim Paige became the host of Leadpages ConversionCast…SO exciting!

    • Kat Von Rohr

      Couldn’t agree more! Thanks John. 🙂

    • Aw, you’re too kind, buddy!

  • Great addition to Leadpages! Looking forward to trying this out.

    • Kat Von Rohr

      Awesome! Let us know how it’s working for you Christian.

  • David

    Guys, is there a way for a leadlink to work outside the received message?
    It helps when giving it to affiliates, so they know that the link is working.

    For example – it redirects to the same page just without submitting emails.

  • Robin

    Why the heck can’t we get this to work with 1shoppingcart?!!! Man 🙁 Are you guys working on making that happen? Trying to get it to happen? Or is it pretty much something that’s never going to happen? Break the news to me gently…
