A Step-By-Step Guide To Translating OptimizePress And OptimizeMember To Your Language Of Choice

Reaching and catering to the international market is commonly the goal of competitive enterprises, be they traditional operations of Web-based ones. By using English as the official medium of communication, achieving such an objective is made easier. However, despite the popularity of English all over the world, there are people with very little comprehension of the language, and if you’re a business owner, the last thing you want is to limit your market due to a language barrier. If you want to effectively reach a global audience, you may want to consider presenting your business in other languages. The Mall of America, for example, is doing it to better serve their large clientele of tourists from China – they have Mandarin-speaking customer support personnel to effectively assist these customers, who are known to spend as much as $20,000 in a single shopping trip.

optimizepress-different-languages

Now, if you’re operating your business online and you wish to use a different language for your OptimizePress and OptimizeMember site to reach your market effectively, you can easily do so. In a tutorial, they provided a step-by-step guide to translating your theme or plug-in to any language of your choice, which can definitely make your provision more attractive to your non-English speaking audience.

 

The Step-By-Step Tutorial
This will work on most servers, provided that your server allows WordPress to write their files back to the server.

 

1. Click Plugins and then you’ll see the option Add New; click that one as well. Type in Codestyling in the blank search field. You will then be taken to the Install Plugins page where you will choose to install Codestyling Localization. After installing, click Activate Plugin. The Plugin will allow you to translate the interfaces of the platforms and front texts.

optimizepress-add-new-plugin

optimizepress-activate-new-plugin

2. Go to Tools and then click Localization; this will load up the Manage Language Files page. Click the Add New Language button provided for the platform you’re using (it’s basically the same process whether you’re using OptimizePress or OptimizeMember), and then you will be provided a selection of languages. Click the one that you wish to use then press the create po-file button. After this, select Rescan and this will scan the theme of the file, and then click Scan Now; it only takes a minute or so to do this bit. When that’s done, you’ll see the Finished button. Press that and you’ll be taken back to the page where you found the Rescan icon earlier.

optimizepress-tools-finished

3. This time, you’re going to select the Edit icon (placed right beside Rescan) and this will take you to the Translate Language File page. On this page, scroll through the different texts of your OptimizePress or OptimizeMember site and choose the ones that you need to translate. Click the edit button on the side then you’ll find the text in its default language, but below that is a box where you can provide the translation for that specific text (i.e. address – adresse (in French), then save. You will see the translated page once you’re taken back to the Translate Language File page.

optimizepress-translate-language-edit

optimizepress-translate-language-save

4. Once you’ve edited the texts you wanted to translate, click generate mo-file and it will display the date and time details of the most recent edit. Then you can check if edited texts already display on your site. Say, you use OptimizeMember; go to General Options and select the page where your translation edit should display and click the link provided. If you see the translated version, then you’re set.

Note: Bear in mind that there are texts that come from the plugin and some that come from the WordPress site so if your WordPress site is not set to your language of choice, better switch it to properly coordinate all the translations.

How To Create A Registration Form or Free Registration Form Inside OptimizePress

OptimizePress is a revolutionary software solution that lets you create almost any kind of page that you need for your business website. These include high-converting landing pages, sales and marketing pages, secure membership portals, product launch funnels, authority blogs, and so much more. With this technology, you can build and edit pages in real time, create fully responsive pages instantly, integrate with your WordPress CMS, and customize and add functionality to your pages with several options for templates and custom elements. It provides a simple way to create an effective marketing site.

 

As you use OptimizePress, you may want or need to create a registration form that allows you to register members at a certain level (or free level) for membership sites using OptimizeMember. This can be done through use of the Paypal Pro Forms/ Registration Forms option.

 
Non-users of Paypal can also use this option.
 
Here are the steps you need to follow:

1. First, go to OptimizeMember > Paypal Pro Forms > Paypal Pro/Free Registration.

optimizepress-optimize-member-paypal-pro-forms

optimizepress-paypal-pro

2. Next, select the code from the “WordPress Shortcode” field. Copy this code.

optimizepress-wordpress-shortcode

3. Load the page where you want to add the registration form. If you are using OptimizePress Live Editor, insert this code into a HTML/Shortcode element on your page.

 

4. The last step is to customize the code. These are the main sections that you will want to change:

· level=”0″. You need to specify the level for the registrant to be added to (remember to use only numbers in this section; Level 0 is your free registration level).

optimizepress-level-code

If you want to, you can also use this to add a user to a higher level. An example is if you are using dripped content and you need to use a level higher than 0.

 

· ccaps=””. Specify custom capabilities or packages here (for example, if you have a package called “ebook,” you would enter ebook). If you have more than one package to assign to the user, make sure to separate them with a comma only (e.g. ccaps=”ebook,video,mastery_series”).

optimizepress-ccaps-code

Important reminder: Keep in mind that if you place this form on a page, any person who can access that page will be able to register and get access to the specified level. It would be smart practice to keep this page URL secret unless you want users to be able to register.

OptimizePress’s Nifty Button Creator Makes Customization A Breeze

The new OptimizePress version that was released last July 2013 offers several nifty features that make it easier to create landing and sales pages as well as membership portals.

 

One of the key upgrades in this version of OptimizePress that is worth looking into is the button creator. For landing and sales pages as well as membership portals, the button is the proverbial key to sealing the deal. If you do not want to leave everything to chance, it is important to cover all your bases, including optimizing your buttons to help you reach a particular goal.

 

The button creator can be accessed by clicking on the Add Element button which can be found at the bottom of every template. Upon clicking this button, you will be redirected to another page wherein several ready-made button templates can be found. These button templates can be further tweaked to suit your preferences.

optimizepress-add-element

optimizepress-ready-made-button-templates

Upon clicking a button template, you will be redirected to another page wherein you can edit the content and style of the button.

 

In this area, you can customize your message, the font that you want to use as well as the size of the font. This allows you to use the font and font size that is consistent with your branding.

optimizepress-customize-button-features

The button itself is customizable, from the button’s color to the color of the text in the button and even gradients. You can also tweak the size of the button, making it bigger to draw attention to it or making it smaller to become inconspicuous. Drop and inner shadows that are used for a 3D effect can be toggled on and off in this section.

optimizepress-customize-button-drop-shadow

Perhaps the best thing about this button editing feature, apart from several templates to choose from and tweak, is that everything is visual. For one, this means that you do not have to be well-versed in coding to get the desired result. Editing buttons is intuitive and you can experiment all you like without making great effort. The second best thing about this is that you can immediately see the changes that you make while editing. This eliminates the hassle of making changes once the button is live and active on your page.

LeadPages Compacts Four Landing Pages In One For A Completely Dynamic And Profitable Site

You have 3-in-1 coffee mixes, 5-in-1 display racks, and now you get a digital product that follows the same multifunctional concept; LeadPages is out with an epic landing page that will allow you to put all the components of four important landing pages in one attractive and dynamic page, elevating your website to a whole new level of effectiveness and profitability.

 

This four-landing-pages-in-one provision allows you to do the following:

– Run Google+ Hangouts like a boss
– Host webinar replays
– Create video sales pages
– Build video squeeze pages

leadpages-4-in-one-page-4-pages-in-one

What’s more, this template is 100 percent responsive, so if your clients are using their smartphones and tablet PCs to view your site, you can be sure that everything is displaying as it should. And because LeadPages consistently wants to make every process easy for its users, integrating all these in one page is a carefully prepared system that even the technically challenged will have no problem carrying out.

leadpages-4-in-one-page-mobile-responsive

To use this template to run Google+ hangouts (so you can have a webinar without paying the fees charged by GoToMeeting), just follow the process provided here and you will be marketing your business for maximum success in no time.

 

· First thing to do is go to Leadpages and customize the page there. Turn off the webinar replay box simply by clicking it and then selecting “hidden” to turn it off. Once you have your Hangout setup and you’re ready to go live, click embed (placed right at the top of the screen), and then copy the on-air embed code.

leadpages-4-in-one-page-hide-webinar

leadpages-4-in-one-page-embed-hangout

· Follow this up by going back to your LeadPage. Click on the video and paste it on Google+ on-air embed code. Adjust the pixel digits to the recommended size which is 900 pixels x 506 pixels and you’re done with this bit.

leadpages-4-in-one-page-paste-code

· Now proceed to the call-to action button. This will prove useful on a Google+ Hangout or a webinar if you’re pitching a product and urging people to buy. For example, you might want to do a Google+ Hangout for a tutorial on how to make those cute bento lunch boxes (because you’re offering one-on-one classes on how to prepare cartoon-themed onigiri and other dishes for bento boxes), so just type in the field provided, “click here to sign up for class on bento preparation.” Then, link that to your shopping cart or wherever you want someone to be directed once they click on the button and provide the link to the shopping cart. But if you’re not selling anything and don’t need a CTA button, just turn it off.

leadpages-4-in-one-page-CTA

· Moving on to the chat box where comments are left, you have a selection of chat services to choose from so just go with the one with functionalities you like. Say, you opted for Chatroll; grab its HTML embed code, and then go back to your LeadPages and paste the code in the field provided. With this setup, you can then turn off the opt-in bar at the bottom because you don’t need this during a Hangout, since the purpose of a Hangout isn’t to get people to opt-in to your list.

leadpages-4-in-one-page-chatroll-html

leadpages-4-in-one-page-chatroll-add-code

leadpages-4-in-one-page-remove-optin

· You’re almost done when you name the page and save it. Then proceed to choose from different publishing options available; you can publish this page through LeadPages servers, WordPress, Facebook as a Facebook tab, download the file and put it on your own server, or you can do all of these.

leadpages-4-in-one-page-name-page-and-save

leadpages-4-in-one-page-publish

Are you looking for a system that can more than double the number of your clients in less than a year?

Easily manageable without any help from a consultant and sufficiently robust to allow users to customize their systems in just a month, Ontraport helps you automate various marketing, sales, and business tasks; manage contacts in a central system; and track your marketing results in relation to your ROI.

 

Take the concrete example of Liesel Rigsby and her business The Energetic Matchmaker. Liesel was a Reiki teacher and healer who undertook a personal spiritual journey that led her to finding her soulmate. This experience then inspired her to venture into a holistic matchmaking service.

ontraport-allinone-liesel-rigsby

Before Ontraport, she had about 800 active contacts and 50 new clients. She only offered in-person, one-on-one consultations and coaching sessions. This setup required her to have a physical location for her service wherein she could attend to just one person at a time. To run the sales and marketing side of her business, she used five separate systems for email marketing, landing pages, affiliate center, CRM, hosting, and shopping cart. It was clear that the efficiency of her operations could be significantly improved.

 

When Liesel started using Ontraport, she was effectively able to conduct her business completely online. Through this platform, she set up a membership site that allowed her a one-to-many approach in delivering her products and services. She was able to automate both product delivery and new lead follow-up. Even better, she was able to condense all those different sales and marketing systems into just one complete, integrated business tool. As a result, she was able to more quickly and easily accomplish all her tasks.

ontraport-allinone-liesel-case-study

Within 12 months, Liesel had 1,400 active contacts and 110 new clients. She was effectively able to increase her profits by 30%, grow her client list by 120%, and double her email list. Having grown more confident in her marketing capabilities with the help of Ontraport, she now resides in gorgeous Bali with her husband and runs her thriving business from paradise.
