So why are landing pages underrated? The reason is simple. I don’t want to speculate that most companies don’t give the right importance to their landing pages, but that might be it. Result? A poor, boring and totally wrong landing page design which can’t captivate users. To be honest looking for inspiring and really good examples for this article was the toughest part of my week.

If a company doesn’t give the right importance to their platform of promotion why would they give it to their product?

The purpose of this article is to give you some insights and help you build a decent landing page. Below I’ve listed some tips plus 15 stunning and hand-picked examples that are currently implemented to inspire your day.
