Learning how to make a landing page is not complicated. We have step by step instructions for you right here.
Using a landing page rather than a complicated website, no matter how well made, can be one of the most effective ways to advertise on initial contact.
Prospects are bombarded with competing advertising. Most people just click off a website never to return if you cannot focus your attention and take action.
Focusing your prospect on just one action you want him to take can increase your chances for a sale.
If the entire goal of your ad is to get the prospect to subscribe you then have the chance to follow up over and over building a relationship with the contact.
The problem is that many people find that creating and hosting landing pages is simply too complicated and expensive.
