Double your Email List with Powerful Landing Pages

Powerful Landing Page

An effective landing page is one of the most useful tools in your marketing arsenal. I’ve used them successfully for many years and I always advocate their use to other people. A Powerful Landing Page is where all of your new web traffic is directed. It’s the main focus of your traffic generating efforts and it’s also the first thing your visitors will see.
And contrary to what you might think, the best page for new visitor is probably NOT your homepage. A good landing page will grow your opt-in list while preselling at the same time.

Creating a Webpage

The first step in creating a landing page is choosing the platform. Landing pages have been made using nearly every method imaginable. The trick is to choose one which is easy for you to use while, at the same time, making sure it works on a variety of devices and browsers.

WordPress is one of the most popular options because it is so easy to use. It has become an industry standard platform and is versatile enough for a variety of uses.

You basically purchase a domain name and web hosting, install WordPress for free, and then install a free or paid WordPress theme (site design). Other options include things like OptimizePress (a fantastic theme for squeeze pages), Drupaal, or even basic HTML if you know how to write code.

Headlines and Sub-Headlines

Search around and you’ll find that headlines are used in all of the most effective landing pages. This is the first bit of text anyone will see. It’s basically the title of your landing page and should grab the visitor’s attention. Sometimes you will only have a few seconds to capture that person’s attention, so the headline needs to be strong.

Sub-headlines can be a great addition when using a lot of text. You can think of these like chapter titles in a book except you’ll be using paragraphs instead of chapters. These are great additions because people might skip over some of the text to get to the information they want. Make these strong, too, but save the most important benefits for the main headline.

Landing Page Layout

The way you design and arrange your landing pages is important. It can be a good idea to look at a few successful examples created by other people. The headline should be right at the top, followed by a bit of sales copy and information about the offer you’re presenting under it.

Images can also help add impact to a landing page. Pictures of the product, as well as stock photos and other inspirational images, can help your visitors connect with your offer. Or, in the same place, you can have a short video that says the same thing. Or both!

At the end (or usually on the right side of the screen) is the call to action which, in this case, is an opt-in form.

Videos vs Text

For a long time, landing pages were all about text. With web based video becoming so popular, however, many marketers are utilizing this state-of-the-art technology.

Videos make presenting information incredibly simple. They require less work on behalf of your visitors and can deliver a large amount of information in a short period of time. Videos are inexpensive to produce and there are a number of ways to have one created for you.

Opt-in Box

The opt-in box is a simple form which allows visitors to submit their email address. They usually do this in exchange for a free gift. This is the main purpose of your landing page. When they fill out the form, their address is added to your opt-in mailing list. You can now keep in touch with these leads and present them with great new offers later on.

Building effective landing pages is a bit of an art, and testing to see what works is more scientific. It can be hard to figure out exactly what works over time.

Creative Lead Generation

Lead generation is a vitally important part of a digital marketing strategy. If you don’t have leads, people don’t get your emails. Emails generate sales, foster public relations, and give you a place to talk to your customer. Having leads for those emails is a must.

Getting new leads can sometimes be difficult. More and more people are choosing to not opt into emails and this can leave your lead list flat and your email delivery stagnant. Lead Generation

People are more apt to share their emails with you if they feel like they are getting something of genuine value by sharing them. Here are a few creative ways to capture leads that convert.

Use success stories

Odds are that you have at least a few success stories from thought leaders in your industry. Reach out to them and interview them. Turn that interview into a webinar, podcast, or articles.

A conversation with a thought leader about how they became successful is a compelling and valuable piece of content. When you share this content, lead lock it. People who really want to see the content will be more than happy to give you their email in exchange for advice from a thought leader.

Make “Help” videos

 Making help videos is another great way to capture leads. If there is a problem that you see a large number of people who use your service having, such as “how do I create a Facebook page” or something of the like, make a video solving the problem.

Not only do these videos provide useful information for your clients, they can also help you gather new customers and clients by helping them solve their problem.

For the best payoff from help videos, create an education center page on your website with a few videos. Have people provide their email address to sign-up and use the free education center. This gives you valuable leads that can turn into new customers.

Embrace the quiz trend

 Quizzes are big right now. They are all over social media and have started to creep into display ads and email inboxes. Use the quiz trend to your advantage.

Quizzes, especially when they are created well, are a great lead generation driver. People love learning what kind of flower they are or which celebrity they act like the most. Usually, the more outlandish the quiz, the better.

Quizzes are also great to push out on social media for some new engagement and boosted traffic and likes on your company’s page. Use the power of the quiz for all it’s worth and it will deliver a host of great results.

Give insight into what’s working for you

 Have something you are doing that is working really well for you? Talk about it! Host a webinar about it or write a blog or whitepaper. People want to know what works for others and they are more than willing to exchange their email for that information.

Be an information provider and people will start to look to you as an authority. Consider using the pieces as a lead generation ad on Facebook and test the response.

Host a giveaway

 Giveaways are one of the easiest and frankly the best ways to gather leads. When you create a great giveaway, people will happily give you their email address for a chance to win.

Giveaways do require some careful consideration when you are using them for lead generation though. You have to be prepared that some people who enter the giveaway may have little to no interest in your company and won’t be good leads.

That being said, giveaways are still a great lead generation tool and can give you a ton of leads in a short amount of time. This is especially true if you use social media to promote the giveaway.
