The Anatomy of a Perfect Landing Page – Infograph

I have been planning to shift my learning mojos to Conversion Rate Optimization these past few months, since I started to get addicted in testing pages and in striving to get better results from those tests before last year had ended. There’s a lot to learn in SEO as it is constantly evolving as well as being integrated with other web marketing channels – and converting the traffic that we are able to generate through deadly marketing skills is certainly a part of it.

I may write more about CRO in the future (I remember telling this myself a few months back), but to start off with a good bang, I’ll first share a cool infographic, which I think ignited and led me to delving much deeper to this area of online marketing few months ago (yeah, this is sort of old, but definitely a classic!).

      I think email fields can be used as the funnel end for the call to action part, well of course that is a form of conversion.

    I don’t use a strong call to action nearly enough. Actually, I am planning on maximizing each and every blog post so as to consider it a landing page instead of a post.

    One thing I have found is that a healthy blog gets traffic for a variety of search terms, so any page on you site can and does act as a landing page.

    All the more reason to get your CRO in order.

    Great post, Kaiser…:)

      I agree Mark!

      Most of my posts actually served as a good landing page, as most of my past clients found me through them, and improving the posts’ calls to action (primarily in redirecting them to the page where you want them to be) can extremely increase conversions.

      Yes I agree, can’t remember where I got that idea from, but that is definitely true. Every content that you create can really convert into money – most of the time – given that as long as you are displaying your expertise and that you are an authority on the subject, you’ll be able to attract customers sooner or later. Well, most of my past clients got to me through my blog posts before my actual services page 🙂 I guess that’s one good example of it.

        That’s the way I’d like it to happen Kaiser, definitely more naturally. This particular affiliate was speaking more along the lines of swaying each post to somehow include at least one affiliate link for something in each.

        Generally speaking I have a lot of respect for this individual, which is why I am being ambiguous as to who it might be, although I don’t necessarily agree with this particular tip.

          As for me, I just believe that every post should have a “purpose”, not necessarily to sell something, but to build something that will support your site or blog’s end goal. Well, I also agree with you, knowing that including affiliate links on every post that you make might turn off your subscribers/future subscribers.

      I agree! I’ve just read a good phrase earlier: “every page is a landing page”. With that mentality for a website, it will definitely be sustainable.

    I focus so much on content and ad location, that I’ve never even considered the effect my theme color has on my visitors. I like the comment about every blog should make money. I have a few that need to be clipped.

    You are right, indeed. Every blog should have some purpose and should pay attention to adapt itself to what it is being builded for. Whenever I notice a blog in pink color, I will always naturally associate it with feminine, romantic subjects, and it always is like that. I do not expect to see there articles related to SEO optimization or wordpress plugins.

    I use orange and blue – orange to make it look striking and blue for the links because links is what people expect and trust.

    “Keep it above the fold” is very basic but nowadays I notice a lot of blogs have enormous header images and blank space above the fold, like when you first visit the site all you can see is one huge picture. This irritates me a lot especially if it is there on every single page.

    Hi Kaiser,

    I have a question regarding point #7: “Links connecting the user to too many other pages or sites…”. Are you referring only to the links pointing to external pages ? or are you also talking about links to your own blog/site ?

    @Mia: I fell what you’re saying, those kind o blogs are really annoying.

    Nice infographic BTW.
