What is a landing page?


A landing page is a standalone page on a website designed to enable a specific action. It is called a landing page because users “land” on it from another part of the sales journey. This could be a link in an email, a blog-post, or an ad.

Businesses use landing pages throughout the sales funnel to collect visitor information or make sales. Common reasons for using a landing page include helping customers:

  • Download an eBook.
  • Register for a webinar.
  • Sign up for a free trial of your product.
  • Make a purchase.

In this article, we’ll discuss everything you need to know about landing pages. First, watch the video below for an easy-to-understand introduction.
