Understand the 10 key elements of a landing page from headline to presentation.
Landing pages have become an important part of the marketer's toolbox. To create effective landing pages, you should understand the anatomy of a landing page and it should be part of your landing page and optimization framework. After optimizing thousands of landing pages over the years, I want to offer this framework for understanding the 10 key elements of a landing page.
Not all of the following elements always need to be on a page to create an effective landing page. However, there are several elements that are essential to your success.
Look at your landing pages and your competitors' to see if you can identify these essential elements.
In my next column, I'll explain the five dimensions of landing page element design that impact its effectiveness.
If you would like to see some of these elements in action, you can sign up for an upcoming Webinar I am doing on April 1, 2010 - "Don't Be April's Fool: Proven Techniques To Maximize Your Advertising ROI."
