Last updated on by Fahad Muhammad in Instapage Updates


You’ve likely read the stats: People’s attention spans are dwindling fast (you can probably relate). Engaging online users as they land on your website or post-click landing page, and engaging them in such a short time frame, is a huge challenge for marketers. Fortunately, there are a few ways to capture someone’s attention in an instant and have them consider your offer.

The splash page is a common marketing asset to do just that.

The primary purpose of a splash page is to enhance the user’s experience by sharing specific information, feature a promotion, or show a disclaimer.

Our comprehensive guide, “What is a Splash Page?” is the perfect resource for any marketer seeking to enhance their users’ experience with a splash page.

Chapter 1: What are Splash Pages?

Chapter 1 provides an overview of splash pages and how they have evolved over time. They used to be flashy screens for visitors to look at while they waited for another page to load. Now, modern splash pages are used as a way to enhance the user’s experience. The chapter concludes by showing a few big-name brands and how they use splash pages as the gateway to their website.

Chapter 2: Difference Between a Splash Page and Other Pages

Not all post-click landing pages are created equal, as Chapter 2 breaks down the differences between splash pages, post-click landing pages, and the website homepage. The chapter provides specific examples of splash pages that feature a disclaimer, a report download, and language selection.

Chapter 3: What to Include on Splash Pages

A splash page only requires two main components: a message and an exit. Although there is no perfect splash page design, an optimized page should also include a few key elements to stop visitors in their tracks and persuade them to take action. Learn what those are, here in chapter 3.

Chapter 4: How Do I Create a Splash Page?
