Local Internet Marketing Needs An Effective Landing Page

Landing pages have long been the crux of successful online commerce. It doesn’t matter how effective your local internet marketing is — you could easily end up with staggering traffic if you apply local internet marketing tricks correctly, but if your landing page doesn’t convert that traffic into money, it’s not worth the money you spend on it.

So what makes an effective landing page? Five things:

  • A killer headline to tell visitors exactly what you’re offering and what makes you different from everyone else.
  • A crystal-clear demonstration of what your product can do (i.e. how it works.)
  • A short statement of the value that your product brings to it’s customers.
  • Some form of social support, like a testimonial or, if your product is brand-new, a press release.
  • A call to action that tells your customers what exactly you want them to do next in order to become (or take the next step toward becoming) a customer.

Of course, there are always more elements that you could put on a landing page, but these are the five basic elements that every landing page must have in order to properly inform and motivate buying behavior in the people who land on your page.

It’s worth keeping in mind that even a killer landing page is only half of the equation — just like local internet marketing isn’t effective without a great landing page, an effective landing page isn’t anything without some SEO or pay-per-click marketing to drive traffic to the page.

The basic equation is simple: your income equals the amount of traffic you drive (i.e. SEO or PPC) times the conversion rate of your page, times the amount of money you make per conversion, minus the cost of your SEO and/or PPC. If you can get more affordable SEO, increase the cost of your product, or make your landing page more effective at converting, you make more money. It really is that simple — and it’s why perfecting your killer landing page is one of the most effective things you can do to make more money online.
