Why is it crucial to build a landing page?

Having a landing page will reward your business with brand awareness, traffic driven and stocks clearance tools and of course, sales boost during the end-of-year shopping season.

Though, the functions that make landing pages unique from any other web pages are specified below:

To focus on a specific goal

The main reason why you create a landing page for any campaign is to announce your deal, call-to-action, or message. In this case, you want to use your landing page to announce your upcoming sales.

Therefore, the landing page should focus on one targeted audience type.

To simplify your customers' decision making process

Adding a good landing page to the website will help your customer to redirect to the sales page within seconds. Without the landing page, your customers might be cramped with all the information and sections surrounding, and distracted by those then fail to select your desired action.

With a well-organized campaign and appealing content, the landing page is the ultimate tool to boost conversion rate.

To track data and insight
