Call to Action:
The call to Action enables user for taking some specific and desired action. An example of call to action is the “Subscribe to our mailing list”. Most of the time, call to action requires the user to click on to a certain element of web page for filling out the web form.
You must be clear and direct in stating the fact about the action of user. By having less calls to the actions, you can focus on getting the user preferred action that you desire. Users must be compelled in taking action, and you must make sure about the things on landing page that encourage all of them for performing the actions.
The effective landing page needs to have power of headlines. These headlines send main message of expecting in the landing page and allowing the visitor to know whether they are in the right place or not. Headlines do have only one task that is to entice the visitors for staying on the landing page. This is the main goal that you have in mind.
Landing Pages must be simple and if they are complex, then the visitor of site might get discouraged on staying on page. The more complex these landing pages are, smaller will be the chances that users will be able to go through the required action. Each and every element present on the page must encourage all the users for taking the desired action.
In order to make sure that all the visitors encounter the element of what will help in making a correct decision, the eye-flow must be very well thought. Good eye flow helps in making the consumption of information being shared very quickly.
Each and every visitor that comes to your landing is from a specified source. The landing page must be relevant to the source. If your ads say that by clicking on it, user can buy the iPads for half of the price. Relevance is the main key.
Designing the landing page is a method of creating the sense of scarcity. If a user feels that a product might run out of stock, then they might be compelled for not procrastinating.
