  5. 5. Assessment 1 Company: Lakeview College of Nursing URL: Landing Page Objectives: To increase online enrollment for nursing programs offered by Lakeview Customers: Potential students, parents
  6. 6. Nice large logo with a Clear header hyperlink to links to different the company areas of the site homepage Page is very text heavy Good use of bold text to create a sense of urgency
  7. 7. A combination of call-to- action buttons and links would be more effective Good use of an “emotional” image Tips for improvement: • The page should make use of a lead capture form rather than relying on visitors to click through to another page before capturing their information.
  8. 8. Assessment 2 Company: Jaspersoft URL: Landing Page Objectives: To capture leads by offering a thought leadership whitepaper Customers: Small and large B2B and B2C
  9. 9. What does Jasper Soft do? The offer gets less prominence than other copy on the page
  10. 10. Solid lead capture form, BUT much too lengthy for a whitepaper Nice clean page layout Tips for improvement: • Form should only ask for name, email and company for collateral offers, like a whitepaper offer • Privacy Policy should be indicated below the “Download” button and shouldn’t interfere with the flow of the form • “Download” button should be above the fold
  11. 11. Assessment 3 Company: Welch LLP URL: Landing Page Objectives: To capture leads and create business for Welch LLP’s accounting business Customers: B2B, B2C, and non-profit
  12. 12. Company name and logo clear Clear links to other areas of the site Newsletters are a great way to get opt-ins Good use of thought leadership pieces to build interest
  13. 13. What does Welch LLP do? Career opportunities stands out more than business elements Non-prospect engaging elements need to be toned down Tips for improvement: • Use the newsletter as a mechanism to capture prospects’ information, request info to sign-up and received quarterly newsletter. Give them a reason to opt-in! • Highlight items that are meant to encourage visitors to click-through the website or opt-in
  14. 14. Assessment 3 Company: G & K Services URL: Landing Page Objectives: To create conversations by capturing targeted prospect information Customers: B2C and B2B
  15. 15. Good header links to back to website People like pictures of their peers Nice display of contact information including physical address Required fields Strong lead are clearly capture form indicated
  16. 16. Requesting too much information “Submit” text is not a best practice. This should be a call-to-action Good use of privacy policy to build trust Tips for improvement: • If you are trying to segment prospects (which is why you would have a lengthy form), opt to have separate forms for each segment to avoid having a high abandonment rate.
  17. 17. Landing Page Testing A/B • This method is used for testing two versions of a web page, version “A” and version “B” • The goal is to test multiple versions of a webpage to determine which page is more appealing and thus effective • The data is measured through click-throughs and conversions
  18. 18. Multivariate Testing • Involves finding the best combination of different on-page elements • More than one element of a webpage is tested in a live environment • Multivariate tests are used to determine which content or creative variations produce the most results for defined landing page goals
