A few tips on building landing pages
Get to the point
We all know people have short attention spans -- so why aren’t we considering that in landing page creation? Online audiences tend to avoid reading through an entire page of information. They will, however, “forage” for information by visually scanning the screen until they find what they're looking for. So when designing your landing pages, get straight to the point.
This is probably the most valuable tip of all tips that I have ever read about content in general. Some people say that you have to got to wind up the reader with a great story. However, when it comes to building landing pages, try not to waste someones time.
When I wind up on a landing page such as a sales page, I scroll the bottom right away. Before I even invest my time, I want to know exactly how much that product is going to cost me.
Do you do that?
Spend some time considering how you consume other peoples landing pages. What would you like to see on a landing page? What do you wish that people would skip?
