Creating an optimized landing page is one of the most effective ways to generate leads for your business. But, it’s more than just placing a “Sign Up Now” button on your page to see leads. Instead, you’ll have to be much more strategic about your approach.

First, let’s figure out how it all works. A unique visitor will click on a call-to-action (CTA) that drives them to a landing page. That page will have a form that’s used to collect the visitor’s information. If your visitor fills out the form, they turn into a lead. Your goal is to have them sign up for whatever you’re offering – so it’s important to optimize your landing page. (If you don’t know how to build a landing page, here’s a guide for you.)

Here are some simple ways that you can optimize your site so you can turn the casual visitor into leads.

Pro Tip: Optimize your website and landing pages for all devices.

Add Fill Forms to the Pages That Get the Most Traffic

You probably have a few pages set up already. Whether from your emails, or social media, or blog posts, these landing pages may be generating some leads, but you’re looking to optimize so you can increase your leads. Go through and identify where your leads are coming from and create forms that visitors can fill out to transform into your next best fan. Remember when you create the form fields to make sure they’re the right fields and not to overwhelm a casual visitor to your site. It may be a turn off for a visitor to fill out too much personal information and they might abandon your site during the process. Keep it simple and straightforward – sticking to the basics like name, company, email, and phone.

Another word of advice is to test your lead generators to better understand what is the most effective. See what’s working for you and what is not.

Grab Your Visitor’s Attention With Headlines That Stand Out

Use strong verbs to create powerful headlines. Test out your headlines on your landing pages, blog posts, and more to increase your conversion. An easy way of creating a headline is by focusing on your value propositions. To do this, figure out why your audience is visiting your website. Look at how customers speak about you and focus on fine-tuning your value proposition to something strong by using verbs and cutting out the unnecessary adverbs.
