First of all, you will need to set up specific landing pages to address your targeted visitors. Every landing page should only have ONE specific goal, promoting a single product or service with a clear Call-to-Action, urging visitors to submit their contact details so that you can contact them to set up an appointment, or send them more information, free trials, or samples.
Here is a checklist for you. Your landing page should contain these criteria:
1) Powerful Headline
Your headline needs to be powerful, relevant, and able to connect with your audience the instant they land on your landing page. Your headline determines if your visitors read the rest of your web page as it is the first thing that your visitors see when they land on your website. First impressions are most important. Research shows that you have only 3 seconds to capture their interest with a powerful headline that promises to meet their needs, before they click away or close the browser, and you would lose them as a potential customer.
Your visitors most likely arrived at your landing page by clicking on a particular ad or link on the search engines or other websites such as blogs, or from social media platforms, such as your Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. It is imperative that you ensure that your landing page delivers what was promised in your ad. For example, if your ad promised more info on a certain product, when they land on your website, ensure that the landing page is all about that product and nothing else. This builds credibility and trust with your visitors. If your landing is not relevant to your ad, your audience will feel disappointed that they did not find what they were looking for, and just click away.
3) Clear Call-to-Action (CTA)
You must have a clear and urgent Call-to-Action (CTA) on your landing page to invite your visitors to take the next step of action to submit their names and contact details, after reading the benefits of your products or services. Your CTA should be prominently placed on your landing page on the top part above the fold. It should be the next thing that your visitors see right after your headline.
4) Compelling Incentive
Give your visitors a compelling reason to take action and connect with you. Find out what your audience want. You can do that through social media such as your Facebook page. Connect with your audience through activities such as contests, or surveys, or simply ask them what are their most pressing concerns. Once you find out what they want, you can then offer it on your landing page. If you are able to relate with them, and offer them something that meets their needs, or want badly, they will happily send you their contact details for you to get in touch with them.
Some people may need a little more persuasion or convincing about your credibility or trustworthiness. Testimonials from your customers will be very helpful in convincing new potential customers to give your products and services a try. Now is not the time to be shy. Ask your customers to give you 5* reviews about your products and services. A long list of glowing reviews will showcase your professionalism, and persuade potential customers that they will be in good hands.
