I’ve seen a couple of WA members ask, “What is a landing page template?” so, that was my inspiration for this blog.
The Landing Page
First, let’s go over just what is a landing page? Well, this is simply the page that a visitor is taken to after clicking on a result in a search engine. If they happen to be looking for “Jim’s Blogging Heaven” and they type that into the Google search bar, “Jim’s Blogging Heaven” will show up in the results. When they click on it, it will take them to their website and the page you end up on is the landing page.
The Transactional Landing Page
It could be either of two types of landing pages. You have the transactional or the
reference landing page. The transactional landing page will have a form to fill out of some sort. A call to action. Here, you’ll give information such as name, email, etc to sign up for Jim’s Blog Newsletter or alerts when a new blog is posted. You get the picture.
The Reference Landing Page
The reference landing page offers the visitor information that they were in search of. This info can be in the form of text, images, video, etc. Jim may have blogged about Tuna Fishing and when they clicked on this link, it takes you to his Tuna Fishing blog. Somewhere on that blog will be a call to action such as sign up for his newsletter, etc. The whole purpose of either of these types of landing pages are the same and that’s to convert your visitors into a new client, member or sale and to add to your email list. And the folks that sign up on these are interested visitors who want more information that you have so it’s a win/win situation.
The Landing Page Template
So, that brings us to the template which is very simple. It is a pre-formatted landing page ready for you to install onto your website. There are several companies that offer these such as, GetResponse, Designmodo, WrapBootStrap, ThemeForest, etc. Or you can build your own landing page here at Wealthy Affiliate for free.
