There’s no denying it: landing page marketing is an extremely underrated digital marketing tactic. Everybody makes a lot of noise about traffic (or does traffic just make a lot of noise?), and while it’s important to get more eyeballs on your “stuff”, conversion – which is really what landing pages are focused on – doesn’t get enough of the credit.
It’s a simple numbers game. Okay not all numbers games are simple, but this one is easy. Let’s say your website converts one out of every 100 visitors (1/100 = 1% conversion rate). Most businesses focus on increasing traffic to get more conversions, which does work; if you can attract 100 more visitors, you’ll get one more conversion (2/200 = 1% conversion rate). Seems easy enough, but increasing traffic by 100% per day (or even per week) to get just one more conversion is actually hard (and can be a lot of work if you aren’t buying the traffic).
Don’t Get Stuck In Traffic
But there’s another way! Instead of worrying about your traffic numbers, why not work with what you’ve got? If you do a little bit of landing page marketing and improve your design, messaging and calls to action, maybe you can bump your conversion rate up to 3%. That’s just a measly 2% increase, right? Wrong. A 2% increase actually means better results and more return on your investment. The numbers don’t lie: 3% conversion rate = 3/100 visitors (3 is more than 2, and it took much less work).
Landing page marketing can make a world of difference, and when combined with other solutions like pay-per-click and display advertising, you can start to make significant strides for your business.
