Default Firefox Extension for Editing Web Pages Inline and Stealing Them?

So, I've tried Firebug and Web Developer Toolbar, as well as the simple javascript edit page trick, and they aren't doing it for me.

Here's my dream: I visit offer pages on the web, see the offer page I want to promote, immediately edit the page inline, save it and ftp it up to my server, ready to go.

Right now, the best I can do is edit it with one of the tools above, capture it with scrapbook, and then edit it in Notepad. When you're trying to throw up one campaign per day that's a great big time sink of busywork.

What do you guys do when you want to make a customized version of an offer page or want to steal webpages in general?

takes my no more than 15-20 mins to make any lander for cpv really. how is your photoshop? there are a number of ways to do it, but i mainly do a variation of the following.

1. view source and save it to my server
2. fix the broken image paths if necessary with a quick search and replace
3. make any graphic changes i want in photoshop
4. change the disclaimer at the bottom (text editor)
5. ad an audible call to action that my wife records for me
6. launch

the following shouldn't take you more than 30 mins per campaign once you get a system down, but there are a few tools you need to have under your belt first. photoshop (or similar) is definitely one of those tools every cpv marketer should really have a reasonable grasp of imho.

thanks, guys

I just installed photoshop and am getting the hang of it..

As for outsourcing this kind of stuff, is there a way of doing that that doesn't end up taking more time than just doing it yourself?

not sure where you are with cpv, but i don't recommend outsourcing landers or anything really until you get the hang of at least why a few landers are working for you. once you have a campaign working that you've tweaked a bit you can begin to outsource elements that you want to test with a bit more confidence. outsourcing can get costly and actually take more time when you're not sure what to test or ask for. i'd say build a few yourself and or learn to tweak the free ones here then find a winner. at that point you might want to begin tweaking elements on that winner and could possibly consider outsourcing those changes to get your feet wet with working with someone else. just my 2-cents.

Once you get the instructions laid out, outsourcing is way faster and you can really jack up the volume.

I'm definitely not going to outsource until I have not only some profitable campaigns but some kind of repeatable system (like if I got the IQ quiz celebrity mashup to work and I wanted to crank out tons of them). But the idea is exciting, it's the kind of thing that would take this from being a freelance job to a real business.

For my PPV LPs I use:

Photoshop to make background of image transparent, and photo touchup/effects

Fireworks to import or create all of the layers for my png file. Final file is saved to a jpeg. Can also make animated gifs too.

Dreamweaver for final LP with the background image (from Fireworks jpg), button & tracking/affiliate link, Title. Can add copy in DW but for special colours/fonts I do that in Fireworks.
