Landing page copywriting best practices (Content lab, Ep. 50)
You can lead your "ideal buyer" horse to water, but you can't make them convert on that water... with bad copy. OK, that was a terrible metaphor; moving on!
By Liz Murphy
The best business websites out there are built by companies that understand you need to attract qualified traffic, convert that qualified traffic into leads, and those leads (ultimately) close as sales for your company.
And what's the most common place someone converts from a visitor to a lead? On a landing page. A landing page is simply a place where some sort of offer or perceived value is promoted, and your visitors (in exchange, most commonly, for filling out a form) can capitalize on that value or gain access to the offer.

Important show note
As I mentioned in a the previous episode, in the coming weeks, we'll be releasing a bunch of episodes John and I recorded over the past few months. This is one of those episodes.
For various reasons, we always felt very quickly that they would become obsolete — for example, we would cancel events we were promoting in those episodes, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
After serious consideration, we've opted to release those episodes anyway. So, please understand that there may be some cases where we reference events that ended up not occurring during certain episodes that we opt to publish down the line, as they make sense.
They also may be released out of order, based on their topic. The topics we discussed are still very valuable and evergreen, however, so we hope you'll excuse any momentary confusion.
Until next week! 👋
