How to install LeadPages in WordPress

It’s no secret, I’m a big fan of LeadPages. In fact, I often get asked a lot how to install LeadPages in WordPress.

Having been through the process, I thought it would be helpful to create a tutorial that walks you through the steps needed to install LeadPages in WordPress.

Perfect harmony

While LeadPages provides users with their own custom LeadPages URL, some users prefer to use their own website address.

Not only does this help with branding, but it makes it easier for people to remember.

This is where using LeadPages with WordPress can come in handy.

Let’s get started learning how to install LeadPages in WordPress.

Step 3: Click save and then click the publish button.

At this point, you can use the LeadPages default URL or you can setup a redirect.

If you choose to setup a redirect, be sure you also create a new page in WordPress with that same URL.

Publish LeadPages landing pages

 

 

Step 4: Click on WordPress and download the LeadPages WordPress plugin.

This will download a zip file that you will need to upload in WordPress.

Note: Each WordPress plugin is unique to your own LeadPages account.

      Barry, what part is confusing? You need to create the page in LeadPages and publish it. When you do this, setup your redirect.

      Then in WordPress, install the plugin and then create a page using the name you are redirecting to from LeadPages.

      If you skip this step, if someone goes to that URL and you didn’t create it on your WordPress site, you’ll get a 404 error.

    Hi Christian, thanks for the video. I am new to LP, and can follow almost every step. I’ve made a LP for a webinar I have coming up, and followed ‘download lead pages wordpress plugin’. When I do this, and open it so I can save to my Mac – the file doesn’t indicate a zip. (unless I don’t understand zips – which is totally possible). It shows this: an admin folder and two files (api.key.php and lead pages.php – both indicating being created in 1979)

    When I click on the admin folder, I get: three more folders: css, ing, and js

    Where is the zip I need to put into the plugin on my WP site?

    Help?!? and Thank you :)
