Upgrade Your Free Ebook Landing Page Funnel in Just a Few Clicks

We’ve all been there…

You’re rushing to get a lead generation offer up and running on your new website — as fast as possible — in order to start growing your email list.

But before you know it, months or even years go by and that same old lead magnet you started with is still doing the heavy lifting of building your online audience.

And you wonder why your conversion rates are falling...

Well, if that’s the case for you, take note:

One of the easiest ways to boost your opt-in offer conversion rates (with the lead magnet you already have) is to simply upgrade your lead generation page.

And if you’re using a free Ebook or free PDF offer as your site’s lead magnet, deploying a slick new Ebook cover to replace the [half-baked] one you’ve been using — without needing to make it yourself— isn’t going to hurt either.

So make sure to watch the video above and read the post below to find out how our new Smart Ebook Landing Page Templates from Thrive Architect are going to help you take action on all these Ebook opt-in funnel upgrades — in just a couple of clicks.

JPEG vs. PNG: Why Image Formats Matter for a Fast Website

Give me a few minutes of your time and you'll never make that mistake again. Instead, you'll choose the right image format and your site will look better and load faster.
