NBALPWACG is the shortening of “Never Build A Landing Page Without A Campaign Goal.” Have a Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time consuming (SMART) goal, which is essential for creating a functional landing page. A goal is easy to set, have a certain amount of purchase for certain products in a certain amount of time.

Once the information in the headline matches what they need, they will either react to it immediately, or they may need more information just to have a better idea. A subhead is needed to give more detailed information or assisted by some bullet points. Then there must be a place to receive the customer’s reaction. It can be an image, a link or an icon, anything possible to allow the customer to click on. It is absolutely beneficial to have a customer willing to interact with your webpage, but how do you show that you are trustworthy?
  5. Gain trust. It is important to have a customer’s trust, and it is on you to show that you deserve their trust. Before building trust, don’t lie to the customer about something you can not offer. Sometimes, you see Costco give samples for customers to taste, you can do too! Offer your products to experts or influential customers, let them try out and evaluate your products. If you received positive feedback, congrats, you are earning your product credits. Sometimes, it is important to express your concept about your product, trigger some empathy from your customer. And making sure to get words out there about your webpage and your product, make people know about your product.

Looks easy? Looks hard? It’s all up to you! Get started and create some nice landing pages!
