Create landing pages

For every product or service you sell, if you intend to spend resources in online marketing, first create landing pages. A landing page is a single page one might end up on from clicking a search engine optimized search result, or online ad.

Also known as a lead capture page, or a lander, what type of content or copy should you use when you create landing pages? Usually you want to keep the copy short and sweet, with a sole goal of converting a potential customer, to a paying customer. This is done by either creating a reference landing page that provides relevant information to the website visitor, or a transactional landing page that persuades the visitor to a conversion, which is usually a sale, but could also be something like filling out an online form.

Once you have a landing page setup, it is useless without using an analytics engine, such as Piwik. By regularly reviewing your analytics, you can see how many people are clicking through to your lander, and even more important to your business, how many of them are converting.

If you’re not getting as many results as you want, modify your search engine optimization strategy, as well as your copy, and try again. This is an endless cycle until your lead capture page is generating good traffic that is converting to sales.

As a part of jekyll, you’ll also likely want to explore Markdown and Liquid. You can follow the offical documentation, or mine:

Broken Link Checker

It’s very likely one of your websites has some broken links. I write this in the process of transitioning this website from Wordpress to Jekyll and I don’t want to copy over all o fthe images as it’s very likely many of the images on the ~10 year old Wordpress site are no longer referenced anywhere.
