The 4 Most Important Parts of Any Landing Page
Posted by: Anita on Monday, 18 March 2013

Every online business owner understands the importance of a landing page. It is a page that can be the decisive factor for your success or failure. If you have created an effective landing page, your sales will improve instantly. Meanwhile, a badly created landing page can simply destroy your whole business. This critical nature makes it a very delicate job. Nevertheless, creating a landing page may be difficult, but it is not impossible. All you need to have is the right set of skills and appropriate knowledge.

Therefore, here I am going to share my knowledge and discuss the 4 most important parts of any landing page that makes it successful:

1.      Keep it Simple

For some people, creating lead generation landing pages can be overwhelming. When you think about the importance of this page, it can happen to anyone. Some people try to use fancy and complex words and some people try to put simply too much information. Now, the key here is to use simple, user-friendly and to the point approach.

On an average, you have only a few seconds to make an impression on your visitor. If you bore them with too much information, they probably would get lost and end up closing your page. 

Elegant & Organized Page Design

Just like the text, your page design must be elegant, well-organized and appealing to the visitor. Try to use bullet points and avoid too many navigations on your squeeze pages. For instance, putting navigations on the top of a landing page is a frequently repeated mistake. Navigations at the top only distract and confuse the visitor. In short, your page must not be easily readable and not confusing at all.

3.      Levels of Content

Most people do not pay close attention to the levels of content. The most important content should be at the top and the least important content should be at the bottom. It is as simple as that. You must prioritize the content on the basis of its importance.

4.      Don’t be afraid of testing

Finally, you should not be afraid of trying and testing new things on your landing page. There is no magic formula for designing the most effective landing page. It is all about trying out different things and picking the ones that works best for you.
