Use clean designs and direct your prospect’s attention to your offer, benefits and call to action. Leave empty space on your page to increase conversions.
Pictures tell a thousand words. This is particularly true online. Images are the most shared and liked content on social sites. They are very effective on your lead generating landing pages too. The more a potential customer likes your page, the more likely they will convert.

Your landing page is the place to include endorsements and testimonials. Are there any celebrities or high profile individuals using your product? Show it off! Equally important: testimonials from your average customer. And don’t fudge it; whatever you do, be authentic.
