Keyword Specific Landing Pages
When you are running a business website, there is an array of products and services you deal in. You can display all your products and services in one go on your home page, but that might not be an effective sales tactics. If a visitor is looking for a specific product or service make sure that they land on a page specifically designed for that purpose. For example, if you are selling women footwear. your visitors might be specifically looking for ballerinas. In that case, instead of just showcasing the products on home page, you can go ahead and create a dedicated landing page with all the description and variety of ballerinas.
This will make sure that the customer is sold on your collection and the next thing he will do is to “Add to Cart” and checkout. That is the power and utility of landing pages.
When it comes to conversion, there is nothing like killer sales copy and effective call-to-action. It is ultimately the content that drives online sales. No matter you spend $$s on website design, if you have right pitch-line at the right location on the real estate of your web-page, customers convert.
Copy-writing is an art. And in case of business websites, it is the means to achieve the ends.
