    I've been making youtube videos where I offer certain downloads to people... I have them go to my website and when they go to the download page CLP pops up and they have to complete an offer to unlock the page.

    I was wondering, is there any wordpress plugin that I can use instead of CLP that locks the page until they enter their email, and once they confirm the email then the page unlocks.

    Let me know if there is, or how you could do that.

    You can get an auto responder
    When user fills the email your system sends an email to your email account and then the auto responder sends the product to your client

    yea most of the wordpress email sign up options have confirmation pages. So you can make the download page private than have the confirmation page redirect to the download page.

    Hi,

    I purchased a WP plugin that does the following: Show the DL page, but lock it with an overlay that disappears when someone types in their email address or uses Facebook (I love FB mails, as most users use there primary email - they don't want to miss something). Plugin is sold on WF. Untested, but a google search for "Revolutionary Squeeze Page Exploits a Powerful Human Emotion to Build Your List Lightning FAST" should bring it up! Sorry, I am not allowed to post links and I think it is against the mighty rules to link to another IM forum... It is priced quite decent, so maybe this is what you are looking for! I got the dev-license (multisite...).

    Cheers
    Sven

    Why not just aweber to prompt for the email address then send them a download link?

    Maybe you should stop thinking of "forcing" them to join and start thinking of offering them something of high quality and value in exchange for their email.

    use a membership plugin so that they have to join your email list to activate their free membership. now you've got their contact info and they're deeper into the sales cycle

    what they said, I'd just get their email in an aweber form and send them the videos via email. Then you have the emails of the paying customers as well.
