The anatomy of a high-converting landing page
Visitors are now aware of you. But visitors will leave within a few seconds. Grow interest with a benefits-focused heading why, and features-focused sub-heading what. Most people aren't (really) ready to act, but include a CTA here too. Remember to focus on your USPs
To get people in a conversion mindset, we want to make the current way of doing things [their process] sound painful.
Using emotional language. We want to make the visitor think: how do I fix this?
Deeper dive into your product. Be as literal as possible - show don't tell. Focus on your USPs but also visitors to follow the product experience from sign up through to outcomes.
Section: Social proof
Increase desire and trust using relevant testimonials. Focused on your USPs, outcomes, and from similar people. Quantify benefits, include reviews. Evidence your claims.
Section: CTA (call to action)
Are they ready to sign up? Let them take action with a compelling CTA. Use one, consistent key CTA throughout the page.
Section: Address objections
Pre-empt any objections the visitor may have. We've increased desire - so now decrease friction and doubt. Guarantees. Answers to FAQs. Evidence of trustworthiness.
