Default Why Simple Landing Pages Work

A simple landing page?

"Why not just link directly to the sellers website? Why do you need a landing page at all? Well, it depends on how you are going to get your visitor to the sellers site. A popular way is by writing articles, having them published, and having readers find those articles and click on the links inside them. The problem is that many article sites do not allow direct affiliate marketing links. They will allow links to your website or landing page but not directly to the seller."

Default Keeping it Simple

Landing pages
Does it have to go on and on and on????
after reading 3-4 lines you have lost me
and I see this in a lot of usa based info type??
is this an american thingy???
I can't understand the logic behind a long winded sales page
I like I buy, sold in 2 seconds
i don't like I am gone,
this is the age of instant gratification
An american golfer gave me an e-book, that was long. He got a bit put off when I asked why it was so long.

I used to think like that Willie.

Until I made my pages more like the "usa" stuff.

I can tell you what makes more money........

Landing pages also improve your PPC score so the sosts are reduced.

Also if you decide to promote a different product you control the traffic so you can change the link.

Another thing - you get to keep the name of the visitor! Big one.

Especially good for ppc campaign. If you are e-commerce selling products, better to have the customer landing on a special landing page than generic product list page.
