Using WordPress to publish your landing pages is a smart choice. This is the easiest way to get your landing page online and as a natural extension (URL) of your brand.
All landing pages sent to WordPress are published as a subdirectory of your main website.
The first step is to install the plugin. Go to your WordPress admin, then click on Plugins and Add new.
Then search for Instapage and click Install now.
Now it’s time to connect Instapage to the WordPress site. You have 2 options to achieve this:
- Enter the username and password of your Instapage account and choose which sub-accounts to connect to the site.
- Use a token to link a specific sub-account to WordPress (the advantage here is that you don’t have to share your Instapage credentials if you’re not the admin of the WordPress site as well).
For the first option just go to the Instapage plugin, the Settings tab, and enter your Instapage account’s username and password.
Then proceed to choose which sub-accounts you want to use with this WordPress website.
For the second option, you’ll first have to get your token from the Instapage account and add it in the same place (on the Settings tab of the plugin). Here’s how to do this:
Open the page you want to deploy, click the blue Publish button from the top right corner and choose WordPress.
Now click on DON’T HAVE WordPress ADMIN ACCESS? and copy the provided token.
Next step is to go back to the plugin, on the same Settings tab and add your copied token.
In case you don’t have the necessary permission, you can send a pre-written instructional email to the WordPress administrator. Just click on SEND SETUP DIRECTIONS.
Here’s a preview of the email.
Awesome! Now you’re ready to publish a landing page. To achieve this just go back to the builder, click on the Publish button and select WordPress.
A similar message should appear and you will be able to click on Push page to WordPress.
After our platform sends the page to the site you have the option to send a notification email to the WordPress admin or, if you have admin access, to publish the page yourself.
To send the notification email, click on this button.
This is a preview of the notification email; to send it just add an email address and hit Send.
If you’re the WordPress site’s admin, make your way back to the plugin and click on the Add Page tab. There you can choose the URL and what type of page you want to publish (Landing page, Home page, 404 page). Click Publish once you’re happy with the settings.
Congrats, now the page is live! Furthermore, it’s also accessible from the List pages tab of the plugin.
