Start Here: The Most Comprehensive Lead Capture Guide Available

by Fahad Muhammad in Instapage Updates

One of the biggest mistakes marketers continue to make is sending prospects to their homepage. The problem with that is homepages are not designed to convert traffic into leads. A homepage is typically more of a browsing experience for online users. Fortunately, there is a better option to convert traffic: lead capture pages.

A lead capture page is designed to convert traffic into leads because it is highly focused on a single offer.

Our latest guide, “What is a Lead Capture Page?,” will help you understand the fundamental best practices you need to create fully optimized pages.

In this comprehensive guide, we’ll teach you:

  • The secrets behind successful lead capture pages, how they can help generate leads, and how they are different from other page types
  • Eight specific page elements to include on your lead capture pages to maximize conversions
  • The importance of A/B testing and what specific page elements to test to determine what’s assisting conversions — and what’s not
