A landing page is any page that is opened to a potential customer after clicking the call-to-action link.
The main goal of each dedicated landing page within the marketing campaign is to attract as many customers as possible for them to make a purchase. It can either “warm up” a person to make him move further around the website or serve as an attraction to take leading positions among the competitors.
Landing pages are divided into two basic types:
- Lead generation ones: it usually offers potential customers an e-mail address and by communication through it, a person can be converted into a customer.
- Click-through page: this page serves as a transmission from the marketing action to the final destination. Used mainly in e-commerce these pages provide all the necessary information about the product and the way to obtain it, and there is always a call-to-action button to complete the process. (This page is actually a "click-through" page, although I’m not selling anything — just providing an information resource.)
Unfortunately, the average conversion rate of ordinary landing pages is about 5%. Only each 20th customer signs in or buys a product after visiting the page.
By making your landing effective you can decrease expenses on acquiring new clients and increase profits and website ranking.
