Leadtheme 2.5 for WordPress Now Has Google +1 Buttons!
Version 2.5 of Leadtheme, the free WordPress theme for generating leads, has been released and it has some awesome new features including the addition of Google +1 buttons built in! Google’s +1 buttons have been becoming more and more common on all sorts of sites around the web. Now your Leadtheme site can be a part of the Google +1 craze without the need for any new plugins! Now a Google +1 button will automatically show up on all of your site’s posts and pages.
Along with the addition of Google +1 buttons, I added a couple new skins that I think will be pretty popular. One is called “FB Like” and the other is called “Blackbook”. View a demo of the new FB Like skin. View a demo of the new Blackbook skin.
Outside of the actual update for the WordPress theme, I finally got a chance to update the Squeeze Page Content Pack. I added the example Facebook Fan Page and Facebook Thank You Page as well as a special form in the Squeeze Page Form Pack for the Facebook Page. I also created an awesome new example page for the Squeeze Page Content Pack that takes your Leadtheme 2.5 Google +1 integration to the next level.
The new example page is a “Google +1 Squeeze Page”. If you can’t figure out what it is just from the name, let me explain a bit. Basically it is a fairly normal squeeze page that has the normal teaser messaging on it. However, there is one big difference. Instead of having a lead form on the page to fill out to get your special offer, it has a special Google +1 button added to it that when clicked, the user gets taken to a thank you page where you can give them any sort of download, video, or message! It is so simple, but when you think of the possibilities it is a super powerful feature.
Basically, it allows you to tell your visitors, “If you +1 my page, I will give you this special offer” and when they click the +1 they get taken to your thank you page. You can put any sort of downloadable product, ebook, video or special message on this thank you page. The possibilities are endless. View a demo of the Google +1 Squeeze Page setup
This is all made possible by an awesome free plugin that allows for a redirect to be added to the Google +1 button. The plugin is called “Google +1 Plugin for WordPress” by Jacob Gillespie and it is super simple to install and set up. I will be writing a whole new set of setup instructions for how to use this plugin and the Squeeze Page Content Pack to create a Google +1 Squeeze Page on your site. Make sure to sign up for the Leadtheme Newsfeed on Leadtheme.com to be notified when I publish the new instructions.
