12 Step Road Map is a public webinar series taught by Jennifer Bagley, CEO of CI-web Group. On September 16, 2014, the one hour session was devoted to the purpose and benefits of website landing pages with the focus on optimization. Here are the main points I learned.

1) Headline must be focused on a clear subject whether message, service or product.

2) Visual depictions such as photographs and videos are assets.

3) Customer Benefits must be comprehended at a glance. A list enhanced by bullet points is a great idea.

4) CTAs (call-to-action buttons, boxes, etc.) must be very noticeable (contrasting colors) and effortless to interact with.

5) Above-the-fold is where the most important information is to be placed because some computer screens are small.

6) Links must navigate effortlessly sans confusion leading your customer step by step to take action now.

7) Descriptions are the precious content on your optimized landing page that addresses the customers need, pain or problem and provides solutions, all the while, incorporating visual aids.

8) Customer Testimonials, your cheerleaders, are most effective on video.

9) Trust is further established by the credentials you post, the strategic partners you are affiliated with, the vendors you use, and the people you socialize with.

3) Catchy title must be worded to entice new readers to linger and take action.

4) Header (H2) will optimize landing pages only if you include the keyword focus (phrase) in the headline. Keyword focus (phrase) should be inserted every 100 words of content to further maximize SEO.

5) Layout must be appealing and make sure images are SEO optimized.

6) Your website is your hub. Make sure landing pages are linked to social media.

Are Your Landing Pages Optimized?

Test and measure is the method of determining results. A digital marketing agency, such as CI-web Group, can do it for you or education you in the process. The topics you want to discuss are A/B Testing; Multivariate Testing; Landing Page Variation and ROI. The most important thing I’ve learned from the 12 Step Road Map webinars is that in order to monetize your online tools they need to be built properly to implement your online business strategy. It is very annoying to find out that your website template cannot be searched and ranked by Google. Therefore, invest your money the right way, the first time around, to reap the success you deserve.
