Why landing page design matters for conversions
It needs to be said, that while landing page design isn’t the most important aspect of your page, it certainly should never be overlooked.
Your offer, unique selling proposition, use of great copy and social proof will have the most impact on your conversion rate.
And of course, highlighting benefits rather than features will always bring a greater return on investment in your eCommerce efforts. Just look at how Remedy8 mesh stunning design with clearly laid out benefits.
If you struggle transforming your product features into benefits, remember this:
People don’t want to buy a quarter-inch drill. They want a quarter-inch hole!
By effectively tying your design to your offer, it reflects your brand's essence, adding to your credibility, making you appear more professional and increasing the chances of being remembered in the future.
So. When it comes to your landing page design, consider it part of a bigger picture that creates a strong brand image in the mind’s eye of your site visitors.
Websites are the new storefronts. You only have a matter of seconds to make a good impression on your visitor. But don’t be fooled into thinking you need complex CSS and animated elements to do so. When crafting your landing page design, consider these:
- Can my visitors find what they’re looking for quickly and easily?
- Is the purpose of my landing page made immediately clear?
- Is my page free of unnecessary visual clutter?
- Does the overall aesthetic tie in with my brand, mission, and values?
Once you’ve defined these attributes, you can then start looking into spicing things up with creative design that stops readers in their tracks.
Importance of landing page mobile optimization
The world’s gone mobile mad. Soon we’ll transition away from phones and into the realm of nanotechnology, neural implants and augmented reality contact lenses. But for now, it’s the reign of smart devices.

The solution is to keep mobile users at the front of mind while building, optimizing and scaling landing pages.
If you decide to use PageFly, you can control all the finer aspects of the mobile experience to suit any device. Take a look at the clean, crisp responsive layout of the landing page I just built.
