My name is Adrienne, I'm from Kansas City, MO. I would like to know if anyone could give me some advice on how to start a squeeze page. I'm brand new so I don't have any testimonials, experience, and, etc. I'm truly seeking all the help I can get, possibly a mentor. Thanks in advance!

Hi @Adrienne Downton ,
A "Squeeze Page" is a one page website that has information about your business and a form where the visitor can enter their information. If you are going to do a build a squeeze page, you need to consider building a website that is mobile friendly, meaning user can access it from their mobile phone and enter data easily.
However, using a squeeze page to capture lead is only a small part of the many marketing technique. I started experimenting with a squeeze page last week. I spent $100 ($20/day) on Google to show my website on the top of the page when people search for "sell house", "sell house fast", etc. The good news is I only pay when someone actually visit my site. The link to my site was displayed more than 4,000 times on that week, and about 40 people clicked on the link (visited my site), but sadly I only got one lead. So, that lead cost me $100, and it was not a good lead either.
(I know $100 for marketing is relatively small. I should not draw a conclusion from that, but that is something I just learned)
So, I need to go back to the drawing board and tweak my "Squeeze page" again, and experiment again until I finally make my squeeze page perfect. This process can take time and become expensive.
@Adrienne Downton welcome to BP. The easiest and cheapest way to do this is to buy a URL at Godaddy.com (as cheap as $14 a year depending on the URL name), pay for the wordpress hosting (about $5 a month), and then find a wordpress theme that specializes in squeeze pages. There are lots of them so just find the one you like the most. Once you are all set up, you need to drive traffic to your page. As @Donny Widjaja stated, Google Adwords are probably the best bang for your buck.
If this all sounds too technical, you need to do a google search for a company that will do this for you.
