How-to Guide

So let’s go into how to guide you in understanding how a landing page works.

What Is on a Landing Page:

A Brief Multimedia Overview

The first thing you’ll have on this landing page is some sort of multimedia overview. A headline, video, hero image. Something that really identifies why they’re here and the main purpose of your product or service. So some sort of big heading with an image or a video intro from you or it could be a polished video but it’s basically a main above the fold, right?

So they don’t have to scroll as soon as they get there. They’re seeing this overview about your product or service. So that’s the number one thing that you’re going to have on that landing page. 

Details with Features and Benefits

Little by little, you’re going to start going over all the different features and benefits and what your product and service does.

You might also have details about who this landing page or service is for and who it’s not for. So you can have all those kinds of things depending on your story writing or approach. You can keep it very factual, or you can bring them through a journey that says, “hey, we do this, if you’re in this situation, let us help you”.

Testimonials, Guarantee, FAQs

On your landing page, you’re probably going to have testimonials. A guarantee and frequently asked questions. So the testimonial is going to provide social proof that you’ve helped other people and it’s real and it works and they’ve gone through transformations. They’ve reached that end state that you’re promising on your landing page.

The guarantee is going to reduce risk and say, “hey, look, if it doesn’t work out, I’ll give you some money back or no worries”. That depends on what kind of guarantee you want to offer. It could simply just be a satisfaction guarantee without money back, however you want to frame it. 

Then you’re going to have a frequently asked questions section and you’re just going to have like just a handful of questions, maybe five important questions.

At first you’re going to invent these questions, like how much does it cost? Is there a refund? How fast does it work? All this sort of stuff. Well, I have access to the content forever, So there’s these kinds of popular questions in e-learning. 

Then over time you’re going to get your own specific questions and they’ll be very specific to what you’re teaching, whether it’s, design or fashion or making audio visual, whatever it is that you’re teaching, you know, that your creative thing, there might be something very specific that you might want to answer as you’re selling.

As you’re learning to remove those obstacles and just answer them so that they’re ready to just scroll down the page and buy, 

Several Call-To-Action Buttons

You’re going to have several call to action buttons. So you’ll have one at the very beginning when they get there. “hey, you know this is our service”, and they can have a buy now button. You might have one somewhere in the middle after you explain all the features and details of what you do. And then you’ll have one at the very end because certain apps like Facebook and tiktok or whatever are training everybody to just scroll through the feeds. 

So if people are just scrolling through and skimming your headlines at the very end you want them to buy that’s their last chance, So you’ll definitely want to have a button there and these call to action buttons could have really interesting texts. They could even have little arrows and icons or big fonts or whatever, so they don’t all have to say buy now. 

They could say they could learn how to play music now or how to design or how to make your own t-shirts now, or whatever it is that you do so you can work in that transformation, or even stopping something like stop messing up in illustrator or stop wasting time in the final cut.

Whatever it is that you do, you can work those into those buttons. So you can even have a mix, and you can buy now, learn now. Start doing something now, so you can have a variety of those buttons. But anyway, you’re gonna have a couple of call to actions, spread on your landing page.

Maybe Fields to Collect Email

You might even have fields like their name and email that don’t have too many fields. You want to guarantee that they get to that landing page you possibly paid good money for ads, so don’t really want this to convert? So don’t ask for a bunch of fields if you’re going to ask for an email. get their name and email or even just their email Right and a subscribe button.

Maybe it’s a lead magnet so if you’re going to get an email, Make that your main thing. And then you could sell them on the backend or make buying the main thing and maybe don’t confuse them with two different options. So they don’t get analysis paralysis.

So you’re going to decide your strategy to either sell or get their email and then you can keep selling. Now you have a warm lead that over weeks and months, you can keep giving them more information. Otherwise, if they don’t buy and they go away, maybe you can use a retargeting pixel, but you’ll lose that lead.

Discounts and Bonuses

Often on landing pages, people might include discounts or bonuses or even some sort of urgency, like, “Hey, limited time only”, maybe it’s a countdown clock where it’s still the same price, but in the next 24 hours. You’re also going to get this bonus thing or template. This extra thing is worth another value.

You’ll call out worth a hundred dollars, you’ll get access to 60 days in your community, some other thing that you’re going to add to really entice them. That’s usually put at the lower parts of the page when they haven’t clicked the first two calls to actions. You’ll include those bonuses or a discount to just motivate them further to try to get them to click that buy button.

Finally, from a landing page point of view, this is not a regular website. Yeah. Behind the scenes, there’s still a server and all that stuff. You’re coming in through a browser or a mobile app, but the landing page, from a design point of view, doesn’t have a lot of exits, a lot of navigation.

It really wants you to get this information and then at each step forward, try to get you to buy or give that, give your email. So that’s what you want to do and you don’t want to have a lot of options on the footer, a whole menu. 

There’s a bunch of different designs, whether you keep your landing pages short or there’s this long landing page with lots and lots of information. But the point is they’re not leaving your site or changing the page. They’re there and you really have one purpose, which is to get them to buy or to give you their email.

so you can use landing pages for a couple of things. You can use it to sell your courses, you can even think of a specific course, you can sell a bundle of courses. You can just focus on one specific course that you’re trying to sell. Don’t forget, once they buy that course, at the end of that course, you can go ahead and sell and have other offers. You can use a landing page to sell your membership community.

We’re not even getting into the offer, Whether it’s month to month or annual or lifetime, that’s up to you and you can play with that, but the landing page will potentially help you sell that online community.

Use Landing Pages To:

Sell a Course

You can also use your landing page to sell your coaching programs, whether it’s a one-time coaching, a month to month, a mastermind monthly for three months or six months or six sessions. However you structure your coaching programs, but the point is you can use a landing page to sell those.

You can also use landing pages to get people to join your webinar, so you have a landing page about your webinar. You’re going to teach this certain skill set. And then maybe at the end of the webinar, you do other things, but one step at a time.

Get People to Join Your Webinar

You’re going to use this landing page to collect an email about your webinar. You’re going to send them an invitation and then at the webinar, you potentially sell something at the end . So you do it in steps.

You should make a decision on your landing page. A lot of people use landing pages to not even sell, just get the email. So once they get the email, they can offer promotions. They can show value, lot of benefits there to provide resources, tips, templates, templates, videos, and get them to subscribe to their socials.

Get Smarter about Your Prospects

So you’re hitting up your prospects on a variety of different channels. You’re going to figure out your strategy. “Hey, is it better to just get that email or no”, let me go straight to the offer. It also depends on the price of your product or service, whether it’s a low ticket item or a high ticket item.

Now landing pages are going to also help you get smarter about your prospects. You’re going to test out certain hook words, key words. You’re going to know the buttons, what’s the right button text, whether it’s buy now or save now or design better now, whatever it is that you do. 

So you’re going to try these different words and you’re going to see what’s working, what’s resonating with your audience, your  niche and, with the types of products and services that you sell, your creative products and services.

So that’s going to be very interesting. So you might have a variety of different buttons, a variety of different words, and then you can, get some stats, make some notes about what’s working, what’s not working, and then keep trying to level up to do a little bit better, get a higher conversion rate.

Let’s just say, 3,000 people are going to your landing page. How many of those landing pages people took the next step? You could do little experiments. or, as a teacher, you might have your things that you’re learning. So, you’re seeing landing pages from other providers.

You might say, oh, that’s a great way to display testimonials. I’m gonna use video testimonials. I’m going to include the photos of happy customers doing this thing that I teach, So you’re going to continuously level up those landing pages and try to keep improving the conversion rate of prospects to actual signups.

Landing Page For Webinar & Course

Searching Web How To Play Ukulele

Now let’s check out an example. Let’s say that a client teaches music like ukulele, The little tiny guitar, they’re trying to teach ukulele and maybe they’re struggling, they just have this webpage, but they’re thinking of doing maybe ads or webinars or something else to do a little bit more, to get more conversions, more customers.

Learn About Parts Of a Uke

A bigger community, more audience. So they’re exploring landing pages. First of all, they might set up a landing page creating the ad and it’s a landing page and it’s just explaining all the different parts of a ukulele. That’s their only thing.

View How Webinar Helps Musicians

It’s almost like a freebie, but instead of just writing a blog article, they recorded a webinar. Maybe they might not have even been an audience. It might’ve just been them recording a video that’s now delivered as a webinar. Anyways, when they set this up, it would basically go like this.

Their prospects are searching the web on maybe how to play the ukulele, they happen to come across this ad that says, Hey, learn everything about the ukulele or learn all the parts of a Yuki, So that’s the ad that they create that resonates with the people who are also learning, looking to learn how to play the ukulele.

Then the online ukulele teacher goes ahead and creates that video, uses that webinar and it’s working. People are going to your landing page, giving you their email and then they’re choosing a date and time. And it’s pre-recorded.

So you could go back, go ahead and actually, do a webinar every month. But let’s just say it’s pre-recorded. It’s this one webinar where you pre-record a video, you upload it to your webinar system, and whenever they choose, maybe they get to pick a date and time, then they get to see that webinar.

Give Email To Join The Next Webinar

So because they gave you their email, the webinar system adds them to the registration and they get the link and they get to watch the webinar.

You just do it in stages and that’s how you use the landing page. If the landing page were your website, they could click away. There’s just too many options on your website, but with a landing page, you’re taking them down this specific path to collect their email, teach them the thing, and then later you could potentially sell them a thing.

Scrolling Through Facebook

How do you replace the wall, you know, the strings, all that fun stuff. So let’s just say instead of searching on you might have a prospect that’s scrolling through their Facebook feed. They’ve already told Facebook that they’re interested in music and ukuleles and guitars and all that sort of stuff.

Facebook knows their interests. Facebook knows their groups and their keywords. So at some point they’re going to see that Facebook ad that you created. it’s maybe something like friends of the Yuki, And they know that keyword, they know ukulele.

Throughout that landing page, they’re going to see a lot of call to actions where they can join now or meet and hang with their Uke friends to level up their Uke skills or however you want to do it. Then you could have tiers or you could just simply have this one price or it could be monthly or annual.

You could have two buttons or you can have a radio button that lets them choose monthly and annual. Maybe you default to annual, you can decide as that creative business owner what would be the discount if they did give you cash up front to subscribe all year.

Maybe you give them one or two months off. You can include something like a PDF as a bonus so you can decide those things and you can also frame it up. As you’re playing with the text to try to increase your conversion rate, but that’s how you would use a landing page to do a hard sell.
