6 things to do to your landing pages when conversion rates suck

by May 11, 2015

Irrational Grumpy Cat reactions aside, under-performing campaigns are a major downer – and not just for you.


After all, your visitors have to wade through all that stinky poop too. Think about them for a minute. They trusted you enough to click your ad or link and you let them down with a poor landing experience.

To understand a little about why they’re not performing, ask yourself six simple questions:

  1. Does my page have one – and only one – possible action?
  2. Did I establish a personal pre-click connection and carry it through to the other side of the click?
  3. If I scan the landing page quickly, is it clear (and obvious) what I’ll get?
  4. Is absolutely every element on the page talking about my campaign?
  5. Would I believe the trust elements on my landing page if they were on a competitor’s page?
  6. Did I add anything in close proximity to the call to action as extra incentive to click?
