A landing page or a lead page is a web page that allows you to capture information of the visitor through call-to-action (CTA) like a lead-capture form through which the visitors submit the information.
A Landing Page is the heart and soul of any inbound marketer’s lead generation efforts. Once traffic the website starts getting traffic through paid or organic search engine, any professional inbound marketer strategizes to encash that opportunity and convert that website traffic into leads. This process becomes easier if you have a high converting landing page.
According to a Landing Page Handbook (Second Edition) by MarketingSherpa, some shocking statistics about Landing Pages:
- 44% of clicks directed visitors to the home page of the website, but not on the landing page for B2B companies.
- 62% of the B2B companies that use landing pages have six or less landing pages.
- Only 52% of them test their landing pages to improve conversion.
Companies still do not use or test their landing pages to improve conversion. What could be the reason? Being such a powerful inbound marketing tool, it is surprising to see landing pages are still underutilized. According to MarketingSherpa, the biggest reason businesses do not use landing pages is that the marketing team does not know how to setup landing pages correctly or overloaded too much with other things.
