      Landing pages are used for conversions. If you don’t have what to sell, what will be the use of a landing page? Also, how can I get products or services that will necessitate the use of landing pages on my page? Thanks

      • Teej

        @Olumide, landing pages can be used for whatever you want them to be used for. They are typically used to collect e-mail addresses and product sales.

        You can use it to lead your visitor to whatever you want or need them to do.

        As for your second question, if you read about this site more, you’ll see that they have product(s) for what you are asking about. :-)

        • Sahil

          I agree with Teej here, I think we can use landing page for any purpose but they need to have a call for action from the visitor to convert more.

    Oli can I send you a link to my landing page which I will be using Unbounce to create so that you can critique it?

    Would you say landing pages with duplicate content still work?

    I have a freelance client who wants to target 50+ areas, I`m in the process of creating landing pages for each of these areas, the problem is creating unique content of all of these landing pages and the time vs costs.

    I`ve noted on similar websites in the clients field are using duplicate / spun content and their landing pages still rank.

    What you be your advice?

    • Teej

      If your client uses PPC or social marketing, then duplicate content doesn’t really matter.

      If your client uses SEO, then you’ll need to link to those pages from other pages (and from other websites) as well. Or find another way to lead to those pages.

    That list was actually useful, thanks!

  10. Lee

    Great recipe Oli. In the last example given, when you say personalized message, was the intro actually “Hi blog reader”… Or was it Hi ?

    My website sucks when it comes to conversions. Oli can I send you a link to my landing page which I will be using Unbounce to create so that you can critique it?

      Hi Dan,
      Sure thing. I have some critiques coming up that I could squeeze this into.

    For a minute there I thought I was really going to back a cake, love the way you did this infographic. Do you recommend putting testimonials on a “lead capture page” if it’s a short page, with only one opt in form?
