Landing Page Best Practices

February 27, 2019    Reading Time: 2 Minutes

Before you read this article, you may want to read our other article titled, “What is a Landing Page.”

Rule of One

On your landing page you should keep it simple by using the Rule of One.

  • One Message
  • One Offer
  • One Call to Action (what they need to do next)

For example, let’s say you are a contractor that provides a variety of services. But your prospect is only interested in your roofing services.

I it may be tempting to talk about all your construction services. Keep it simple, only speak about your roofing services. Keep the prospect focused. They can learn more later if you end up doing business with them.

Attention Span of a Fly

Visitors online have the attention span of a fly.

They could be in the middle of a project for work, eating dinner, watching kids, anything. You’d like to think they are in a peaceful environment 100% focused and hanging on your every word. Imagine the opposite. They’re in line at the grocery market and the next person in line just said hello.

Keep it simple.

What is the Benefit?

Make sure you communicate the items below in the first three seconds:

  • What is the benefit that you are offering?
  • What is it that you provide?
  • How are you going to make the visitors life better?
  • What is the next step that the visitor needs to take to get this benefit?

Ideally, you’d like to present this information as high on the page as possible.

Features vs. Benefits

What is the real reason people benefit from your business?

Don’t provide the features of your offer, but the benefits.

What do I mean?

In the roofing example, instead of saying something like “We’ll re-roof your home with the best quality roofing materials” instead, say “Never Worry About Your Roof Again” or “Maintenance-Free Roof.”

Yes, the prospect wants a new roof, but really, they want safety and comfort for their family. They don’t want to worry about a roof.

I worked with Shawn on my company’s website and he was very helpful and generous with his knowledge and time. He was responsive when I had issues or questions. The input he provided on concepts and trends that make some sites better or more visible than others was great as well. I would feel good referring Graticle to others and was pleased with the services they provided to us.

Wow, what can I say?

Working with Shawn and the team at Graticle has made launching our website not only easy and stress-free, but fun! Our website looks wonderful, it looks beautiful and clean and is easy to for clients to navigate and order products. I love that it is mobile friendly and formats great on the phone. They really took the extra steps to make sure it came out exactly how we wanted and even made videos explaining step by step and page by page how to change or add to the website including changing text and images, adding products, etc. Shawn has made this a wonderful experience and helped create a great site that accurately represents our business. Not only will I recommend Graticle to other companies but also plan on having them do more work for us in the future.
