How to Use The Million Dollar Template

I got this question about how to use the "Million Dollar" Template landing page template, and in the event you have the same question, the answer may be helpful to you.

In case you don't know, the Million Dollar Template is a landing page template that is based on other ones that earn millions of dollars EVERY DAY. It makes developing your landing page paint-by-numbers simple.

Here's the question that Neeraj sent me.

Hi Mark,

     The template looks great but I don't understand how to use it on a technical level.  I didn't understand the contents of the zip file so I tried uploading it to my website.  That didn't do anything.  How do I edit the template?  Do I do it on my desktop or my server?  I'm stuck.  Please help.


More...Hello Neeraj.

The zip file has a file in it called Home.php.

If you have a program like Dreamweaver or Frontpage, you can open that file in that program.

These two programs — and tons of free ones like the Netscape Composer — allow you to edit HTML, ASP and PHP files just like you type into a word processing document. We say that "what you see is what you get" with these editors. . . or WYSIWIG for short.

So, in a nutshell, you just load the page into one of those programs, or any other one you use, and type over the text that is there.

Once you do that, you upload the file to your website.

Does that help?

If not, shoot me your other questions and I'll answer as best as I can.

Landing Page Links

I got this great Landing Page question from Ian Z, and the answer is so important, I thought it best to post it here for everyone to read.

I have just started reading your ebook.  So far, excellent.  And I do have a question….

I am an experienced programmer, finishing off my first mass-market offering.  I know I have to build the landing pages and a web site.  And this is where my confusion lies…..

1.  I understand the Landing Page concept, with no external links.

2.  I understand I need a site and a Home Page with links to content about my product and general subject.

Q:  If the Landing Page has NO external links, no distractions, how do they ever find my Home Page?  Can I have links to other parts of my site?

Maybe you explain it further on in the book.  But so far I don't understand this. If you can reply, great.  If not, c'est la vie!

Anyway, excellent book.  Learning a lot before I waste time creating a lousy site.

Many thanks.
