Creating a landing page is one way businesses attempt to quickly engage with their customers online. But what exactly is a landing page and how do you create an effective one?
Technically, any web page is a landing page because by clicking on it, you land there, but for marketing purposes, landing pages are standalone pages, essentially separated from the rest of a business’s website, and their goal is to quickly persuade viewers of the usefulness of the product advertised and then convert to sales.
The reason landing pages are created to “stand alone,” is so viewers do not click away from them. Landing pages are designed to be online dead ends. The options left are two: back out or sign up and purchase what is offered. If properly designed they can be quite effective. Nearly 70 percent of B2B businesses use them to get new sales leads for future conversions.
