When you break a landing page down to its most basic level, you’re left with a few things: a catchy headline, a form, a few bullet points, and maybe a supporting visual.
These elements are often combined in a similar format, dressed up with the branding of the company, and pushed live with the hope that they’ll be enough to invite engagement.
Landing Pages are the spice of life. Or at the very least, the spice of a good online conversion. In addition to writing a great headline and having a great offer, you’ll need some great imagery to complete your landing page. After all, a picture says a thousand words.
But what if you need to get a great image and you don’t have a graphic design on hand to bang one out? Follow these tips to get the best landing page images and increase your conversions!
We’ve all been there.
You have a website, a customer acquisition team, and a really great product — but people aren’t getting on board. Or worse yet, they hop on, check things out, and jump ship.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. There are ways to turn visitors into customers — you just have to know which best practices you should start following.
Is your website ready to attract and convert mobile website visitors into leads?
According to Adobe, companies with mobile-optimized sites triple their chances of increasing mobile conversation rate to 5% or above.
Optimizing your website to generate leads is a no-brainer. But it’s not as simple as throwing a “click here” button on your home page and watching the leads pour in. (Unfortunately.)
Instead, marketers and designs need to take a more strategic approach. In this post, we’ll go over some quick ways you can optimize your website for lead generation that actually work.
You’ve written some really compelling copy for your website. Your product images are polished. Your overall site design is professional. And thanks to marketing initiatives like these ones, you’re getting traffic to your site.
So why is it that so few of those visitors are converting into leads and customers?
What’s the best length for landing page forms? Would a shorter form increase submissions while retaining quality, or are longer forms better?
These exact questions have been at the center of a hotly contested debate that’s been raging on since 2009. In fact, the popular website WhichTestWon that catalogs A/B tests, has 40+ tests on forms alone.
Every time you create the content for a direct response campaign, a landing page, an advertisement, or a sales email, you want the copy to be powerful enough to convert visitors to sales. You want the words to roll out of your keyboard in an unending symphony of, ultimately, higher sales.
But writing copy for these marketing assets can be hard.
Lead generation is a major component of inbound marketing. It’s an exchange of information: You offer people valuable content, and they offer you valuable information about themselves, like their name, email address, and company.
When it comes to meeting your lead generation goals, landing pages are the strongest tools marketers have — which is why it’s so important to get them right.
Just like some words are more persuasive than others, some designs are more persuasive than others, too. A landing page’s layout, the fonts and colors used, image placement, form length, and other design factors can have an impact on how many people actually choose to fill out the form.
Want to design a landing page that persuades people to convert? Then you’ll need to take a step back from the aggregate data about site visits, conversion rates, and lead numbers, and think hard about the human behind the screen.
The best marketers I know are always on the lookout for clever hacks and tools to increase their conversion rates. They’re the ones to jump on Snapchat, or experiment with animated GIFs in email, or hack together a parallax scrolling landing page.
The best marketers I know also understand that these new tools and ingenious hacks don’t always pan out.
Emotion is a major force in online sales. As much as we tend to disparage “emotion” in purchasing decisions, the fact is everyone thinks and makes choices based on emotion.
Conversion copywriters — the people who write landing page content that converts readers and delivers sales — are wonderful human beings. Their writing pulls in readers, generates conversions, and ultimately produces buckets of cash.
Wouldn’t you like to have that skill?
Imagine you and I were chatting, and I leaned in and told you, “I’m a really amazing oil painter. People look at my paintings and think they’re photographs. My work brings out emotions people didn’t even know they had — I’m that talented.”
Would you believe me? Or would you write me off as pretty self-serving?
