Landing pages are simply single point pages where web owners can generate leads. While many people assume a home page is a landing page, nothing could be further from the truth. Home pages give a simple overview of services and serve as a formal introduction to the company. Landing pages inspire visitors to take action, and give them a reason to do so.
Landing pages are extremely specific in their nature. The idea is to keep the users attention focused on the page long enough to give them a reason to sign up for x y or z. Other pages are more comprehensive, and include information that isn’t necessarily sales related. Additionally, landing pages make it easy for visitors to locate a company’s contact information or to inquire about a specific service offered, and eliminate any confusion regarding the action visitors should take.
After giving a pitch of some sort (i.e. my free eBook will solve your marketing problems etc.) the landing page will have a call to action at the bottom. The call to action signifies what the visitor should do next, whether that be downloading a book or offering their email address for a newsletter. This effectively turns a nonchalant browser into a conversion, thereby increasing the likelihood of a sale.
Your ultimate goal as a small business owner is undoubtedly to connect with your audience and to generate sales. Whether you are offering a service or a product, a landing page can strengthen the bond you have with your audience and increase your business.
