Landing Pages

A landing page can be defined as any web page a potential customer arrives at after expressing interest in one your upstream ads. The source of the ad can be: a search result, banner ad, paid search ad (e.g. Google AdWords), a link in an email, or a vanity URL observed in print or TV advertising.

The purpose of a landing page is to expand upon the upstream ad and convince the visitor to "convert" into becoming a customer by taking a specific action.
