Getting Started With Landing Pages

Follow

Welcome to Unbounce! Use the guide below as a checklist on how to create your first landing page. This page will be your guide through using our documentation to help you make the best landing page for your campaign.

 

  • What is a Landing Page?

A landing page is a “standalone” page used for marketing--it’s where a visitor ‘lands’ when they click one of the ads for your campaign.

Landing pages don’t link to your homepage and are designed with a single objective known as a ‘call to action’.

There are 2 different types of landing pages:

  • Lead Generation pages use a web form for data collection purposes.
  • Click through pages use a single button to facilitate transactions.

Take a look at Unbounce’s landing page introduction to find out more about landing pages and why they’re great for your campaign.

  • Run an A/B Test

Your page is published and you’re starting to get those sweet conversions. You can take those conversions to the next level by conducting your own A/B test.

In A/B testing, you create two variations of the same landing page for a campaign and pit them against each other to see which one gains the most conversions. This is a great way to optimize your landing page for your campaign.

Unbounce makes it easy for you to create page variants to assist with your A/B testing needs:
