What is a landing page?

A landing page, or landing page, is a web page designed specifically to turn visitors into leads. Itis a page within a website that cannot be accessed through the classic navigation menus of any website, but we land on it after clicking on an external link. It is characterized by having a single objective: to get the user to perform a certain action desired by the advertiser. You can find more information about what is a Landing Page by clicking here.

Why is it important?

If we offer something that seduces the user, the user will be more willing to leave information through a form, if with this he will be able to access the same and other content of interest. This page helps us turn users into end customers, hence the importance of creating a landing page that truly converts.

Difference between landing page and website

The Page website, has a menu in which it takes you to other internal sections in the Page website and usually has a lot of content, from photo galleries, who we are, works etc. and regularly is not designed for the generation of LEDs, instead a landing page is 100% designed with content vertically, to convert visitors into customers, so it does not have a menu and has little content, but content focused 100% on users who reach the landing page which has a Account (a call to action), bullets service improvements, contact form and seller text.

How does a landing page work?

Let’s look at this with an example: The user accesses a post written on our blog or website on how to make a content marketing strategy. He then decides that he wants to expand the information, so he clicks on a call-to-action of an ebook about “the perfect content marketing strategy” that will direct him to our landing page.

Finally, this page will ask the user to send us their contact information to download our content. You will then be redirected to a thank you page with the download link, becoming a valuable lead. The number of downloads we record translates into personal information from potential customers. This is how we get the perfect opportunity to contact them directly and in a personalized way, to be able to influence your purchase decision.

Structure of a landing page

A landing page can have different structures, depending on the criteria of the web developer and the nature of the product and its brand. There are certain elements that are common to any landing page:

  1. A good picture that catches the eye in the first place
  2. A specific title on the product
  3. A call-to-action.

The classic structure would also include an enumeration of the benefits of the product and its features, a form and even some video, user testimonials about the product and buttons to share on social networks.

It is advisable to be very synthetic: make short sentences, insert symbols in enumerations, highlight words with bold to make them easier to read and accompany features with images. Only then will we interest the visitor without boring him and reach our goal: call-to-action.

Credibility is also essential: it highlights only the information that benefits you, but don’t exaggerate it, because it shows right away, and on the internet everything is known.

It is very important that if the user must fill out a form to respond to the call-to-action only ask for easy and essential information: please provide things or this could get tired before filling it out and leave the page when you were just convert point.

Use common sense: consider your experiences as a customer and don’t expect others to behave differently than you would.
