Landing pages are customized, online sales strategies that generally produce much better conversion rates than simply directing people into the home page of a web site. Landing pages have proven themselves as fast and nimble, online lead generation and customer acquisition tools. Well-crafted landing pages almost always sport better conversion rates than simply dumping people into the home page of your site. During the "economic crisis" we used the economy of landing pages in place of large scale web development to support our clients businesses. However, with Google's "birdge page" penalties, we're now moving some landing pages inside the main website and continuing to direct traffic with a mix of SEM and our Digital PR. Works great!
