The Power of Consistency in Marketing: A Case Study with Jason WiehlerJanuary 31, 2024
Have you ever wondered what makes a landing page go from good to absolutely irresistible?
I recently had the opportunity to help a client improve their landing page and boost their conversions by a staggering 11%. In this blog post, I’ll walk you through the step-by-step process and reveal the key elements that contributed to this success.
The Power of a Compelling Landing Page:
Your landing page is like a first date – it needs to make an unforgettable first impression and there are NO second chances.
Your landing pages are single pages with a specific purpose and offer. To win the landing page game, you’ve got to attract the right crowd, hit them right in the feels, and then present them with an offer they can’t resist.
Knowing Your Niche
One of the first things I discovered in this case study was the importance of understanding your target audience. Your landing page should speak directly to their needs, using language that resonates with them. By conducting thorough research, you can identify the pain points of your niche and offer tailored solutions.
Creating a Compelling Offer
The value proposition of your landing page should be difficult to pass up. Offering a significant discount, a freebie, or a unique solution can make your offer too good to refuse. Stack different tactics on top of each other – attracting the right people, connecting with them personally, and offering a price lower than their expectations – to make your offer truly compelling.
Design and Layout Matters
A cluttered and disorganized landing page is like walking into a room with uncomfortable furniture. It creates a negative user experience and drives people away. Optimize your landing page by carefully choosing colors, fonts, and images that align with your brand and the expectations of your audience. Keep it clean, simple, and visually appealing.
Not all landing page builders are created equal.
Choosing a landing page builder is like picking the right tool for the job.
I’m the daughter of a mechanic, and I worked on cars alongside my dad in my teens. There’s a reason why your mechanic has a tool box the size of a small fridge. They have every conceivable tool needed for the job at hand.
You’ve got to consider the main objective of your landing page before selecting a builder that suits your needs. If you’re looking to make sales or generate opt-ins, platforms like GoHighLevel or ClickFunnels are the go-to.
If you’re new to the scene, user-friendly options like Kajabi, Leadpages, or Elementor will have your back. Or, you can go all fancy and get a specialist to craft a custom page just for you.
Here’s a tip: as with everything we do, building trust is essential for converting visitors into leads or customers. Incorporate elements that build credibility and authenticity. Consider including a bio, sharing client testimonials, and infusing your company’s identity into the page’s copy and graphics.
The Importance of Calls to Action
Don’t limit yourself to a single call to action on your landing page. The more the merrier here.
Prompt visitors to take the next step in various creative ways throughout the page. Give them different calls to action that appeal to different preferences, making it easier for visitors to engage with your offer.
Think of it this way – for every page scroll, insert a CTA.
Keeping it Simple and Informative
Sure, it’s tempting to put all the bells and whistles on your page, but remember that simplicity rules. You want to avoid overloading your page visitors because if you do – they will feel confused and do nothing.
I always build the page, walk away, revisit and then see what can be paired down, made simpler, easier to read and understand.
Case Study: From 2% to 13% Conversions
In one particular case study, a client had built a functional landing page using Kajabi but was disappointed with their 2% conversion rate. After analyzing the page, I identified several areas that required improvement for better performance.
First, the balance between the business logo and the hero image was off. By reallocating space for a tagline, I captured visitors’ attention and clarified the page’s purpose. Next, I focused on providing a clearer description of the target audience and the expected results of completing the mini-course. These additions highlighted the value of the offer, moving away from a focus on technical details.
I also addressed visual balance issues on the page, adjusting font sizes, spacing, and element placement for better readability. Finally, I ensured a responsive design that looked great on tablets and mobile devices, eliminating any potential barriers to conversions.
The results were super shocking. The landing page’s conversion rate skyrocketed from 2% to 13%, showing the tremendous impact of implementing the right elements and improvements.
Imagine – 100 people landing on your page and you go from 2 people registering or buying to 13. That is a big difference.
As you can see from this case study, optimizing your landing page is a strategic process that requires attention to detail. By attracting the right audience, creating a compelling offer, and designing a visually appealing page, you can significantly increase your conversions and generate more leads or sales.
Don’t forget to conduct thorough research on your niche, understand your target audience, and infuse your landing page with your brand identity. Keep your calls to action clear and diversified, and always deliver on the promises you make.
