Squeeze pages [vs] Full Websites - What is best for you?
People always want to make a lot of money online but they aren't exactly sure what they should be doing in terms of what kind of website they need. People always hear of big authority websites and squeeze pages but a person who is just starting out might not know the difference and what each is used for.
When I started out I was always interested in making money, and I heard that squeeze pages was the way to go in order to do this. Little did I know that you need to be a super affiliate or have a huge following in order for these to work well without money to push into PPC campaigns or other forms of advertising. I had a couple squeeze pages that were pushing my affiliate links and CPA systems, but I never hit it big because I didn't know much lol.
A squeeze page is great if you want to use it solely with advertising on Adwords (if you can get your ad live), banner advertising on niche related websites or if you already have a lot of people signed up wanting updates on your next big thing. If you don't have the money or the following, you're best bet is to go after building an authority website.
To become an authority in your niche it will take time and effort. If you don't want to put in the time, you'll have to pay someone to do it for you in the form of posting quality content on your website or blog. To do this you can hire a VA (virtual assistant) and give them author access on your website/blog so they can write and post when they want. You'll have to make a quota for them to hit or they don't get rehired. I usually do around 30 posts as a minimum so that it's roughly 1 post per day. If you don't have the money to hire a VA you can always post yourself. And who better to post on the niche you love than yourself
Build dozens of pages and slowly you'll build a following and gain traffic from the search engines. This type of website/blog is more of a long term game that doesn't cost as much as the overall squeeze page system. The design of a squeeze page will cost less than an authority website, usually, but the cost of your advertising and list building techniques will make it cost 10x more than if you slowly build an authority website.
So in the end, if you don't have a bunch of money to push into advertising and list buildling, you should go the authority website route and not the squeeze page system.
