I recently came by a free wordpress sales page plugin from the warriorforum. I’ve read about themes that can create a squeeze page or sales page with ease. Squeeze pages usually are simple one-column pages and are also mostly plainly designed with no distracting unnecessary decorations or images, it’s main purpose being only to draw the reader towards the sign up box or the buy now button.
My current theme doesn’t natively have the capability to create its own squeeze or sales page, unlike some themes, mostly the premium ones, like the flexsqueeze theme which Sire is using on his [wpPopWizard item_id=kswppw_in1ine clickthru=http://wassupblog.com/ newwindow=yes inltext=”<p>Blogging For Fame and Glory</p>” ]wassupblog[/wpPopWizard] site. Eventually, if I do find the need to buy a premium wordpress theme, I’d buy a wordpress sales page theme, or a theme that can create a squeeze page easily e.g. flexsqueeze.
Meanwhile, although I still don’t have an actual squeeze page of my own, I have downloaded a free wordpress sales page plugin which is offered free at this page from the warriorforum. Should I need to create one anytime in the future, I know I can readily make one because I’ve already tested it on a local server and found that it works perfectly.
It isn’t strictly a plugin actually, but more of a template since you don’t install it like the usual way you install a wordpress plugin. Instead, you just upload 3 files into your wordpress directory, and voila, you no longer need to change your theme to any free wordpress sales page theme because you now have the capability to make a squeeze page on your wordpress site.
At the time I downloaded the files, there were 4 wordpress sales page styles to choose from.

Like I always do when it comes to plugins and scripts, I tested it on my local server using MoWeS Portable to see if it works. We need to be careful in installing these scripts/plugins because some plugins can simply mess up your site sometimes due to incompatibility issues or clashing with another plugin or script. Well, to make a long story short, it worked wonderfully.
I only tested one style, the Ink style and here’s a screen shot of the test page:
With some tweakings of the corresponding style css file, you can make it as cool and professional as the fancy high priced sales pages out there.
Here’s what the other styles look like.
So, if you feel like you don’t have the necessary funds to buy a premium theme or don’t want to change your theme to some other free wordpress sales page theme, this template should work for you in the meantime.
