Dynamic Download Plugin

It will then rise to $12.50 for the duration of the sale.

Turn Your Links Into List Building Ads

You can find the demo page here. Click the three download links to see examples of what you can do.

During this sale ONLY it comes with full developer (client/flipper) rights, and ALSO resale rights too. When the sale is over these rights will be removed and will be an optional purchase, so this is the best time to get the plugin.

As usual I’m releasing a plugin that I originally wanted for my own purposes, and the good news is you get the benefit from it too, and (as it’s new) you’ll get it at the lowest price it will ever be in this sale.

What does it do?

It allows you to turn your normally plain download links into optin forms and general purpose ads and info boxes.

The way it works from a readers point of view is they click the download link as usual, and instead of the download starting immediately, they’re presented with a lightbox popup instead.

Inside this popup is a countdown to when their download will start.  🙂

In other words you now have a captive audience.

And while they’re waiting, you can ask that they sign up in return for something extra, or you can present them with an ad for something related.

This is powerful stuff.

The chances are very high that they’ll fill those seconds that they’re waiting with a click or an opt-in.

In other words, you’re taking your regular download links and turning them into list builders.

The more I think about this, the more I wonder why a site owner wouldn’t want to improve their site in this way.

It’s a nice, simple, and *gentle* list building setup that *anyone* could use.  😉

The sale starts Tuesday 4th February at 6.00pm GMT (1.00pm EDT) and the best time to buy it is in the first 36 hours as it will be just $10 during that period and will include additional licencing rights as described above.

I’m assuming just about any html like a video embed code?

Hi Jason,

I hadn’t even given video a thought, but what a damn good idea (smacks forehead). I’ve just given it a try and added a third link to the demo page with a YouTube video embedded into the popup and set to autoplay. At the moment the popup box is a fixed size (I’ll have to get that changed) but a little experimentation uncovered that 244×435 is the size to set your video to run in the box nicely.

In the meantime either:-

#1 – If using a presentation style video, make sure to use large text and close-ups and maybe suggest the viewer clicks to watch in a higher resolution on YouTube or on another page on your site.

#2 – Make the box bigger by editing the main CSS fle for the plugin – I’ll include how to do this in the docs. I tried setting the custom CSS parameters but the main CSS overrides those values.

You know what? Scrap the above. I’ve just made a decision to make the popup box bigger – from 500 pixels to 650 and it looks much better at that size and nicely accomodates standard YouTube embeds of 315×560. It also looks great on a 720p res monitor and fills the browser space nicely.

Job done.

Awesome Frank. Thanks!

What a clever simple idea, quality, just purchased

Frank Haywood

Hi Albert,

Thanks for that – I hope you enjoy it. 🙂



Does fantastic new plugin work when I add a link to my website in a GetResponse email or do I need to add the link to an actual page on my site and send people there?

Frank Haywood

Hi Edward,

It’s to a page (or post) on your WordPress driven site.

The idea is you offer a free download with no strings attached – it’s just a straight normal link on the page. Except… When someone clicks on it, they get to see an offer of yours together with a countdown.

The psychology at work here is, if they *really* want the download, they’ll wait until it triggers. (If they don’t want to wait, they’ll close the page, that’s the way it is, their choice.) While they’re waiting, your offer will be staring them in the face. In other words there’s a good chance you’ll have their undivided attention.

This offer of yours could be to opt in to a mailing list (new visitor to your site), or it could be an ad (and link) for a similar product (I KNOW that one works), or as Jason suggested it could also be a short video with another link underneath. (Make sure the links open in a new tab/window –> target=_blank.)


Rick Roberts

Looks great Frank. The only problem I see with it is if they click the close on the pop-up it also cancels the download. I can see where this might be a problem in some instances for example on a purchase of a product and having this type of download link on the product delivery page.

Frank Haywood

Hi Rick,

I don’t think I’d use it on the product delivery page… I’ll think about that one.

Hmm. It might be useful for a bonus item on the delivery page though. So for the item your customers have purchased it’s all regular download links, but for a final bonus it could be that you use a dynamic link and display an ad for something related while the countdown runs. 🙂
