Landing pages are the workhorses of digital marketing campaigns. They’re the dedicated destinations you send targeted traffic to, designed with one clear goal: conversion. Whether it’s a sign-up, a download, or a sale, crafting a compelling landing page is essential for maximising your return on investment (ROI).

Here at Propeller, we know successful landing pages are crucial for our clients. That’s why we’ve compiled this guide to the 5 key elements of making impactful landing pages, along with actionable tips for quick wins and long-term strategies.

Our top 5 tips...

  1. A Crystal-Clear Unique Selling Proposition (USP):

Your headline is prime real estate, so use it wisely. Unbounce says headlines with a clear USP can boost conversions by up to 95%. Here’s how to craft a winning headline:

  • Short and sweet: Aim for under 10 words.
  • Benefit-driven: Focus on what the visitor gains, not just features.
  • Actionable: Tell them what to do next (e.g., “Download Now,” “Get Your Free Trial”).

Short-term win: Revisit your current landing pages. Can you tighten your headlines to showcase the core benefits you offer?

Long-term strategy: Use A/B testing for different headlines to see what messaging resonates best with your audience.

  1. Engaging Hero Shot (Visuals Matter):

First impressions count. HubSpot tells us that visuals are processed 60,000 times faster than text. Use high-quality images or videos relevant to your offer and target audience.

Short-term win: Ensure your current hero shot is visually appealing and aligns with your target audience.

Long-term strategy: Experiment with different visuals (photos, illustrations, videos) to see what drives the most engagement.

  1. Compelling Benefits, Not Just Features:

People care more about what your product or service does for them than the technical specifications. Focus on highlighting the benefits that solve their problems and improve their lives.

Short-term win: Craft bullet points that showcase the key benefits your offering provides.

Long-term strategy: Gather customer feedback to understand the specific benefits they value most.

  1. Inspirational Social Proof:

Testimonials, logos of trusted brands, and case studies add credibility and build trust with visitors. Studies by Social proof psychologist Robert Cialdini show that social proof can significantly increase conversions.

Short-term win: Include a strong testimonial from a satisfied customer.

Long-term strategy: Develop a system for gathering and showcasing positive customer reviews and case studies.

  1. Strong Call to Action (CTA):

Tell visitors exactly what you want them to do next. Make your CTA button clear, concise, and visually distinct. Unbounce also highlights the importance of a strong CTA, stating that clear calls to action can increase conversions by up to 70%.

Short-term win: Ensure your CTA button is prominent, easy to understand, and uses action-oriented language.

Long-term strategy: Test different CTA button colours, placements, and wording to optimise click-through rates.

By focusing on these 5 key elements, you can create high-converting landing pages that propel your digital marketing campaigns to new heights.
