How to Create a Squeeze Page in WordPress (6 Simple Steps)

Looking for a quick and easy way to create the most high-converting squeeze page WordPress has to offer?

Creating a squeeze page is the best way to build an email list to promote your business and sell your products. But what if you’ve never designed a web page before? What if you have no coding experience and you don’t know how to add custom functionality to your pages?

Fortunately, there’s an easy way to create a squeeze page in WordPress. In this article, we’re going to help you launch a squeeze page in less than 15 minutes.

Are you ready? Let’s dive in.

What’s a Squeeze Page and Why Should You Care?

A squeeze page is a fully customizable web page that’s focused on selling a product or a service to your website visitors. Unlike a social media site or a marketplace like Amazon or Etsy, your squeeze page focuses on exclusively getting your visitors to give up their email addresses. Even better, it doesn’t showcase all your competitors in the same web page!

Every squeeze page is designed to convince and convert website visitors into paying customers. Depending on how much time you have, your business model, and how much money you’re expecting to make from your subscribers, you could:

And so much more!

But before you get started, remember to have a very clear and specific goal for your landing page. Just because you can do a lot of things doesn’t mean that you should do them all on one page. More often than not, if you give your visitors too many things to click on, they won’t click on anything at all.

What do All Successful Squeeze Pages Have?

Now that you know what a squeeze page in WordPress does and why you should build one, it’s time to create a blueprint for your landing page. If you check out any successful landing pages, you’ll notice that they all have some very basic common elements:

  • Headline: The headline is where you grab people’s attention and make them want to scroll down and learn more about you.
  • Description: Just below the headline, you should have a description of what your viewers should expect from the rest of the page. This is a great place to convince readers to buy your product as well.
  • Latest episodes: Once people know what to expect from your brand, give them a taste of your show by listing your latest episodes. We recommend showcasing 3-5 episodes at most.
  • Buy button: Follow up with a purchase button so that your visitors can directly add your product to cart. This is known as the call to action (CTA) button. It’s how you nudge your visitors to take action on your page. Depending on your goal for the landing page, your CTA will vary.
  • Social proof: A great way to give your readers a strong reason to subscribe is by offering social proof. Social proof simply tells your visitor that there are other people who are already taking the same action as you want them to take.
  • Newsletter optin: Once you hit your visitors with the core offer, you can also ask them to become email subscribers. You can also ask them to become push notification subscribers using a click to subscribe button. It’s always best if you offer something valuable in exchange.
  • Social sharing buttons: The more people talk about you on social media, the better chances you have of skyrocketing your subscribers. So, put up social sharing buttons on your landing page to encourage people to share it on social media.

Here’s a sneak peek at the WordPress squeeze page we’ll be creating in our tutorial.

Remember, these are only the most basic parts of any successful landing page. For your page, you can add a lot of other sections and create custom offers to increase your conversions.

Next, we’re going to customize the landing page.

Step #3: Customize Your Landing Page Design

SeedProd’s visual builder allows you to customize your landing page using drag-and-drop content blocks.

Edit Your Squeeze Page in WordPress

You can create a fully customized header for your landing page in a matter of minutes. You can even add custom elements to convince and convert your traffic. For instance, you can create a video module and embed a YouTube video to convince your visitors to buy your product or service.

Add a video to a landing page

It’s also super easy to add a section with a brief description of your product or service . Head over to the Sections tab in the visual builder and under the Hero section, you’ll find several pre-built templates that you can import with a single click.

Create a Hero Section for Your Landing Page

Go ahead and select one that you like.

Don’t worry about the colors or the content. You can edit all of it. What you should look for is a layout that goes well with your template.

You can customize the hero section the same way we did earlier by choosing a different image and changing the headline and description. While you’re at it, add a call-to-action button that nudges visitors to buy from you.

Customize Your Landing Page in SeedProd

Next, from the Sections tab, select the Testimonial heading, and choose a design you like. And just like that, you have a testimonials section on your landing page.

It’s so simple!

Step #4: Add a Click to Subscribe Button to Your Squeeze Page

You can also add a click to subscribe button to collect push notification subscribers. Push notifications are a great way to increase your repeat traffic, get more engagement and even sell official merch if you have some.

In SeedProd, just drag and drop the Custom HTML module from the sidebar.

We’ve put the subscribe button directly underneath the email signup form in the first fold.

Squeeze Page Subscription Button

But you can insert the button anywhere you like.

For this part, you need some experience with HTML and CSS. Or, you can copy this code and paste it into your Custom HTML block:

<button onclick="subscribeOnClickButton()" style="border: none; padding-left: 5%; padding-right:5%; text-align: center; display: inline-block; color: blue;">Get Updates via Push Notifications</button>

That’s a standard button in HTML with very little styling. The only fancy bit is the onclick function in the code. It basically means that your visitors can click on the button to subscribe to something. Now, we need to give the button some extra code to allow your visitors to subscribe to push notifications.

Head over to the PushEngage home page and click the Get Started button:


Then, you’ll want to select the free plan to try out PushEngage or choose a paid plan if you’re serious about growing your business. The paid plans come with more campaign options and the ability to build even bigger subscriber lists.

In your PushEngage dashboard, head over to Site Settings » Site Details and click the Click Here for Setup Instructions button. Under Any Site, you’ll get your installation code:

PushEngage Any Site Installation Code

WARNING: You need to copy the code you get from your dashboard. The code is unique for each PushEngage user. You won’t be able to copy the code in the image and collect push notification subscribers.

Once you have the code in your PushEngage dashboard, add this snippet to your code:

<script> window._peq = window._peq || [];</script> <script>
function subscribeOnClickButton(){
// Code to return response

Your final code should look something like this:

<script src="" async></script>
<script> window._peq = window._peq || [];</script> <script>
function subscribeOnClickButton(){
// Code to return response

You’ll want to add this code to the HTML block in your landing page after the code for the button. It should look something like this:

HTML Code for Push Subscription Button

Feel free to customize the styles for the button any way you please. When you’re done customizing your squeeze page, go ahead and hit the Save button.

Step #4: Configure Your Page Settings

After you’re done designing your squeeze page, click the Connect tab at the top of your page builder, and select your email marketing provider to collect leads on your site.

Step #5: Publish Your Squeeze Page in WordPress
