Landing Page – What Is It?

A landing page is a page on your website, which is used only to send potential client to from adverts. These pages are designed to relate to the advert and to prompt potential customers to take action. In other words, it’s the page linked to the advert. It is not on a menu on your website, making it only accessible from the link you have provided in your marketing content, such as a CLICK HERE button in an email or the link used to direct someone who clicks on your ad or post.

This is usually used in e-commerce to inform the buyer (describe the product), prepare them for purchase and finally push them to a shopping cart, checkout or a registration page. Research has shown that this type of page results in a higher conversion rate.
