Hi there, I posted this as a comment on your blog post about squeeze pages, but haven’t had a reply, so in case that thread is old, am posting it here.
I am using your eStore and affiliate plugins with Aweber.
I’d like to set up a squeeze page where someone can download a free report after opting into my list. I currently use one of Aweber’s forms for this. I don’t really mind whether they use an encrypted link or not, as long as they can only download the report once they’ve clicked on the double opt-in confirmation email from Aweber.
I’d like my affiliates to be able to promote this free report, then if clients later make a purchase, that the commission will be awarded to the affiliate who introduced them.
Please can you advise how I can set this up? Thank you!January 7, 2011 at 5:04 am #27814
That should be simple. You just configure links or banners in the affiliate platform plugin that points to the page with the squeeze page. Your affiliates can use these links or banners to send traffic to this squeeze page. The affiliate platform will keep track of who came through which affiliate. When a customer purchase something from your website later it will know that this customer was originally referred by someone.January 10, 2011 at 11:53 pm #27815
What if I want to track leads with this too, so that we know which affiliates have brought which customers who have downloaded the free report?
Can we create a product with no download link, no price, and simply assign to the relevant aweber list to handle the delivery, and use your Ajax form? Would that work?January 11, 2011 at 4:34 am #27816
If you want to setup a lead capturing model then you will need to integrate the form with the affiliate plugin. This page have more details:
If all you want to do is use the squeeze page of eStore as your lead capture then yes I can arrange an integration between the squeeze page form and affiliate platform but remember that the form can be filled out by anyone and if you are paying per form submission then you are opening yourself up to fraudsters.January 11, 2011 at 10:14 pm #27817
Thanks, I am not paying per form submission, only when clients then go onto buy something, but it would be really helpful to know which leads are coming from which affiliate partners (is also motivating for the affiliate partners to know how many of their clicks have converted into leads). That’s why I was wondering whether the eStore will allow me to create a no-price, no-download product that still adds to a specified autoresponder, and whether the affiliate plugin will pick this up – just using the Ajax squeeze form rather than the Contact 7 thing which looks really complicated! Is that possible?January 12, 2011 at 6:15 am #27818
Okies… yeah I should be able to add some code to the plugin so it captures the lead in the leads database when somoene submits the squeeze form.January 12, 2011 at 10:38 pm #27819
That’s great thanks! Will that update automatically or do I need to download a new version of the plugin?January 13, 2011 at 7:50 am #27820
You will need to update both the affiliate platform and the eStore plugin. You can get the new build from here:
After you update the plugin go to the “Settings” -> “Addon Settings” tab of eStore and check the “Capture Lead on Squeeze Form Submission” field to get this new feature.January 18, 2011 at 10:38 pm #27821
Thanks for being so responsive. I have updated the plugin and created a product with no download file and a price of 0, and used the squeeze form to capture the lead.
However, the confirmation text on the page (after clicking on the download button) says “Email sent! Please check your inbox for the download link.” and an email is sent which says “This product does not have any downloadable content”.
Is there any way of changing this so that your system does not send any email, and the text on the page to say something like “Thank you! Please check your inbox and for your confirmation link to get the report.”
Many thanks for your help.January 19, 2011 at 4:45 am #27822
You can customize any message that gets shown to your customer. This post will explain how to customize this:January 19, 2011 at 9:57 am #27823
Thanks. What about the email – can I turn that off or edit the wording?January 20, 2011 at 3:51 am #27824
There is no option to turn it off but you can tweak the code to turn it off. You can also modify the wording of the “This product does not have any downloads” from the language file:
define("WP_ESTORE_THIS_ITEM_DOES_NOT_HAVE_DOWNLOAD", " - This product does not have any downloadable content");
You can make it empty string like the following:
define("WP_ESTORE_THIS_ITEM_DOES_NOT_HAVE_DOWNLOAD", "");January 20, 2011 at 1:22 pm #27825
Hi there, you said:
There is no option to turn it off but you can tweak the code to turn it off.
That would be perfect for this situation – how do I tweak the code to turn off the email?
