Landing pages are pages you link to in your advertising. The actions your advertised audience takes while visiting a landing page determines your advertising’s effectiveness. There are two main types of landing pages you can utilize: reference & transactional landing pages.
Reference Landing Page
A reference landing page is meant to build awareness. It contains visuals and copy relevant to the advertised visitor, as well as additional relevant linking. It is meant to isolate them from other “noise” on the website such as unrelated products and a full website overview. This funnels the visitor to where you want them to go on your website and what content on your page you want them to see.
Transactional Landing Page
As the name suggests, a transactional landing page contains transactional actions for the visitor. It is used to persuade them to make a purchase or fill-out a provided form. The goal is to turn visitors into customers. A successful landing page (reference or transactional) has consistent hits and is a source of lead generation. Alongside a thought-out digital marketing strategy, landing pages when done right, land sales.
