    • Why Have Both Landing Pages and Content Pages • They are both necessary - each serve different purposes when leading prospects through sales conversion (e.g. ‘about us” pg helps PPC landing pg.)
    • Functional Result of Landing Pages
    • Waterfall Engagement Model • Landing pages are to the sales conversion process as cascading is to waterfalls. • Keep engaged from one sentence to the next • All benefits have been stated, questions answered, objections responded to, credibility established. • Builds momentum toward asking for the sale
    • Landing Page Conversion Experience • Visitor waits for page to load, evaluating if worthwhile. • Page load, visitor scans copy. “Should I leave?” • Visitor reads page. Finds disharmony, or confusion. Leaves • Starts conversion process. Not enough credibility and reassurance.
    • What Causes Landing Page Abandon? • Not relevant to the exact keyword, and keyword intention of the visitor • Graphics don’t emphasize benefits • Subheadlines don’t help summarize extended copy • Copy is in disharmony with subheadlines or keyword intention. • Commitment seems to long-term • Not clear what action is • Not clear the result of the action • Copy isn’t readable • Forms are overwhelming, or ask for too much info
    • Concept: Distracted Buyer Isn’t a Buyer • Great amount of confusion = never make a decision • Everything on the page has to be consistent with keyword intent • Distractions = • disharmony with search intent • negative product aspects • navigation clicks
    • Concept: Distracted Buyer Isn’t a Buyer • Even a little confusion = never make a decision • Everything on the page has to be consistent with keyword intent • Avoid customer saying “why am I here again?”
    • Concept: Distracted Buyer Isn’t a Buyer • Distractions = • disharmony with search intent • negative product aspects • navigation clicks
    • Landing Page Disharmony • “I don’t think this relates to me” • Reader thinks, “No.” • “I don’t really believe it” • “How can that be true” • “I don’t understand what I’ll get for my money” • “I’m confused about my options”
