  4. 4. 3.

  6. 6. 5. Visible Call-to-Action (on the 1st fold) • Have a persuasive CTA above the fold. • Call-to-action Button or Message must be distinct (contrasting colours will work). • Don’t use a generic CTA like ‘Submit’. That is a conversion killer. Use specific ones, like ‘Download Whitepaper Now!’, instead. • Check out the Landing Page on the next slide. 6Read the Original Article on Landing Pages Best Practices Here

  12. 12. 8. Keep the Copy Short and Precise • Come straight to the point; don’t play unnecessarily with words. But, don’t be afraid of going beyond the 1st fold. • Check out the landing page on the next slide for instance: It has two folds; but each is complete in itself, and the content is not overwhelming. • The trick is ‘Have a CTA in the 1st fold for people who don’t want to read’, • For those who want to know more ‘Have some more info and another CTA in the second fold.’ 12Read the Original Article on Landing Pages Best Practices Here
