8 Essential Elements of Your First Landing Page
Do you want to make a landing page and create a highly-converting marketing campaign? You can use your IT department, but designing and coding every element can and will take time. Not to mention consultations, editing and approval. Under normal circumstances, all these steps are very important. When you have a complicated project, you want to be sure that everything will run smoothly and be as close to perfection as it can be.
There is nothing complicated about landing page creation, though, nor should there be. Why spend all this time waiting for someone to do copy, code and graphics? Do it yourself and place elements on a grid. What elements can you use and how can they help you in achieve your goals?
1. The Most Important Part – Drag & Drop
You don’t have to be a developer, you don’t have to have programming skills. Use our simple drag & drop interface and do everything yourself. You just simply shift elements on the screen, edit copy… and that’s it! See how easy it is:
2. The Second Most Important Part – A Form
This is a no-brainer. If you want to convert, a form is a must. This is a central element of your landing page, right next to the CTA button. You can think about forms as an extension of the CTA button. Instead of putting a short message on a limited space, you can use a form as a vehicle that gives you additional information. Things like a name and an email are what instantly comes to mind in this case, but what about questions that you can put on the page to deepen your knowledge about a user and their habits?
3. CTA Button
The CTA button can act as a replacement for the form, but it can also – and should! – be treated as a stand-alone option. The CTA is another central element of your landing page. Everything should be built around it and act like a “support group” for the leader. It’s like a soccer game – we have 11 players on the team but only one captain.
This is an element that can be helpful in many situations. Do you want to promote an event? Place a counter in the first section of the page and countdown to the event. This will mobilize users to sign up quickly, they won’t want to miss the action.
There is no such thing as a landing page without graphics. Images are an essential part of the user experience and an even more important part of a customer’s journey through the sales funnel. Imagine selling an ebook on a healthy and delicious vegan diet without an image of the cover surrounded by fruit. Impossible! Use the “Image” button from the builder’s left-side menu and convert!
Where there’s an image, there can be an icon. This is not a vital part of a landing page, but it can be helpful; to present an emotion, to talk to millennials that value imagery over text.
This, for a change, is an element that you should use as often as possible. Video sells, it’s that simple. People are busy, they don’t want to go through a wall of text to discover what works best for them. There is no wall of text on a landing page, but there can be a video. Reinforce your copy with an irresistible statement.
8. Social Media Button
When you’re done – share. Put social media buttons on the landing page to give people an opportunity to express their passions and inform others about your offer. This is as simple as taking a box from the left-side menu and dragging it onto the grid.
