• Free WordPress Theme – SalesLead: Make Product Sales Pages Fast!

    Today we’ve got a really cool freebie for yall. The third WordPress theme from ThinkDesignBlog.com, called "SalesLead." It’s a WordPress Theme intended to make it easy to create a simple & beautiful, modern product sales page.

    You can show off your product, offer up some key info & bullets points, and link your Buy Now button in just a few minutes. You can add testimonials, and other supporting text down the homepage as well. The homepage is widgetized, so you can put as many testimonials and supporting text blocks as you’d like.

    The theme was designed by me, Nick Pagano with Think Design Blog/Think Four Graphic Design, and coded by the fine folks at Purlize. They are a new company that offers PSD to HTML conversions, and more. Tyler, from Purlize, was a great help on this project, and also wanted to see y’all have an awesome end product. Make sure to check out there website, and their top-notch code.

    SalesLead Setup & How To.

    Installation:
    1. Upload via FTP, or using the "Upload" option under the "Install Themes" tab. (Appearance –> Themes –> Install Themes)
    2. Active theme.
    3. Now, you will see a "Saleslead Theme Options" page. Here is where you can setup the basics for the theme. You can input a path for the header & footer logos, as well as the favicon. The "Parent Name" and "Parent Company Link" are for the header and footer, where the parent company name is displayed. You can also enter copyright text for the footer, and a Google Analytics code.

    Setup:
    - Now, you will want to setup your product. You’ll see there is a custom post type called "Product". You’ll click "Add New Product." The title of the ‘post’ will be the main headline. The content of the post will be the subheading. The ‘Featured Image’ will be the product image to the left of the headline & info.
    - To add bullet points: You simply create a custom field with a name of "bullets". The ‘value’ is whatever you want the bullet to be. (You can add as many as you want.)
    - To include the "Buy Now" button. Simply create a custom field with a name of "BUYNowButtonLink". Then put the URL you want to link to as the value of the custom field.
    - To setup the Testimonial/Copy section below the product section: This section is widgetized, so you’ll go to ‘Widgets’ under appearance. You’ll see two sidebars: Home Left, and Home right. You’ll also see a new ‘Testimonial Widget’. For the supporting copy to the right of the testimonials, you can use the default ‘text’ widget, and it will be styled properly. So, for instance on the demo, I have 2 testimonial widgets in the "Home Left" sidebar, and five text widgets on "Home right." You can add as many as you want to these areas.

    That should be basically it! Then you’ll be up and running with your spiffy new sales page!

     

    This is the first release of the SalesLead Theme. Feel free to suggest any changes, bugs, or fixes to the theme in the comments. We will try to update the theme as necessary. Please understand that the theme is available "as is" and that we are not responsible for any bugs. The one major thing we’ll be incorporating next time, will be easy integration of Mail Chimp, Constant Contact, and other mail services for the "newsletter" section at the bottom of the homepage. We wanted to get this out there though, so as of now, it’s more of a section you can work with, and manually integrate it with your MailChimp, or similar services.

      Is there a way to get rid of the Footer that says sign up for our newsletter or to add my aweber code into it?

      Also, is there a way to make it less wide so scroll bars are not needed?

      Thanks,
      Mike

      Hi ThinkDesign, I am somewhat of a WP newbie… but hey – thanks a lot for a very nice WP landing page theme.
      How difficult (or easy) would it be to integrate this landing page into another WP theme, where the rest of my website resides?

      I’m looking to evaluate this theme but it is failing to install properly.

      Error:
      Warning: fopen(/home/dexpress/public_html/wp-content/themes/SalesLead-Theme/style.css) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/dexpress/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 4339

      @Clipping path – Glad you enjoyed it!

      @Radient Heating – Your welcome Radiant, your welcome..

      @ Markus – Thanks for your comment.

      @ Mike – Sure, to remove the newsletter section, you old edit the ‘footer.php’ file. You would just remove the following code and everything between it: (There won’t be astricks in the actual code.)

      < *div id="ournewsletter">
      < */div>

      As far as making it less wide. What resolution/browser that are you having to scroll? Let me know.

      @Rongdhonu – Grazie

      @Pedro, An easy way would be to create a subpage, say: salespage.yourdomain.com, and install it there. Link that to the main page at: yourdomain.com, and vise versa.

      @ Computer – Your too kind.

      @Cable, was it on a fresh install of WordPress? What version? Haven’t had any issues with installation yet, but let me know.

      Hey Nick,

      Thanks for this cool theme, is there any way to make it so you might substitute a video for the featured image?

      Thanks again!

    13. Wow Nick,

      Your squeeze page is beautiful, it looks great and puts the one I designed to shame. I really like the layout and it’s refreshing to see something other than the boring squeeze page format which we see everywhere. I will try it on one of my product sites that has been looking really tired. Is it cool to alter the colours in the theme?

      Many thanks

      Rob :)

      Hi! What do you mean: “The ‘Featured Image’ will be the product image to the left of the headline & info.”
      Where can I write the product image link?
      Thanks!

    15. August 13th

      Beautiful design, will definitely be making use of this one!

    16. August 29th

      hello, nice theme! I tested it out, however how do you add a custom field for the buy now button? I’m kind of stuck on that. thanks for your help!

    17. August 29th

      I figured out the custom field thing, wp 3.2 has it hidden unless you to go to the top of the Product page where it says “Screen Options” and then select custom fields then it will show up, otherwise custom fields is hidden. So now I am trying to figure out how to get the newsletter section to submit and actually work? am i missing something, it does not seem to work on your demo site either

      This theme is great for anyone who already has a web hosting account and registered domain but lacks the technical know-how of building an ecommerce site!

    24. November 21st

      The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

    30. February 22nd

      I sale multiple products. I am not looking for a single sales page theme. I am looking for a WP addon that can create fast pages, where I can place content, videos, images in a fast and simple manner…I am not looking for a theme that seems to just focus maybe on one product.

      Hi,

      Are you available for a custom job ? I’d like to create a page template for the saleslead theme in order to display other information : contact, technical specs pages etc.
      Could you do that for me ? At which price ?
      If not, could tell me how to do it myself ?

      Regards
      Phil

      Hi, and thanks for a gorgeous theme! I just tried installing it to WordPress and got an error that the install failed due to a missing CSS style sheet. Do you know if this is due to updates to WP since you released this free template? Do you happen to know of a workaround for this problem?

      Thanks,

      Jennifer Wenzel

      Hi Nick!

      Is it possible to use “BUYNowButtonLink” also for internal links, because I want to link to a page included a form builder? Currently it does not work.
