Create Your Own Landing Page: The Ultimate Guide For Beginners

Posted in WordPress9 months ago • Written by 14 Comments

If you already know what is a Landing Page and what it is for, I will call you a “Smarty Pants”, but please give me just 58 seconds to explain it to those who don’t really know what it is.

So a Lead Capture Page, Lander or as most of us know it, a Landing Page, usually serves one, single, yet very important purpose. It is designed to be one large Call to Action.

Usually it’s a single web page and contains very focused and deliberate sales copy with Call to Actions throughout.

Brilliant! I managed to explain it in less than 58 seconds.

Now that you know what a Landing Page is, I’m going to show you how to create, and launch, your own.

What’s more exciting is that you do not need to be a coding guru or an über cool designer.

It’s just that simple – You and this ultimate guide.
