Hey everyone, I'm Neil Patel, and today, I'm going to share with you, how to make a landing page that converts over 40%. I know what you're thinking, 40% conversion rate, on a landing page, that's insane. Well, that's possible. Sure if you're selling a product for $100, you're not going to get a 40% conversion rate. But let's say you're just starting out and collecting leads like name and email address, you can get over 40%. And even if you're selling products you can boost your conversion rates if you follow these exact tips. Tip #1: Use tools like Instapage and Click Funnels. The cool part about Click Funnels and Instapage and even Lead Pages is they break down the landing pages in their system that convert to the best. And they're not making this up by saying oh this landing page converts better than this other one cause it looks cooler. They're using data; they have so many customers, thousands and thousands if not hundreds of thousands, that they're basing it on their existing customer base and their current conversion rates. So they know all their customers are using this one landing page that's converting better than all the other ones out there, that should tell you, hey you should start with this landing page first. #2: Offer an amazing unique value proposition. Not a weak one like put in your name and email and I'll send you a free pdf, or I'll send you weekly updates. That value proposition is terrible. It has to be amazing. With a lot of my offers, I give free courses. I give free guides that I've spent $30,000 creating. But I'm a crazy person. You don't have to go above and beyond like me, but my stuff converts better than most people. Why? Because I go above and beyond. With your value proposition, it needs to resonate with people; if you're not solving a problem that they're facing at a really deep level, they're not going to opt in or buy from you. If you're just scratching the surface and you're not breaking down why they should opt in or why they should buy your product or service and why it solves this problem they've had forever, they're much less likely to buy from you. So really focus on your copy. Out of everything I've tested when it comes to landing pages, copy and value proposition, are the biggest factors that influence conversion rate. #3: Keep it simple, silly. One of my companies was called Kiss Metrics. Why? Because I found that in marketing, everyone tries to over complicate stuff. There's no reason for it. Why not keep things super simple? For example, if you have 10 form fields, when you only need two, remove the extra stuff that you don't need. You don't want fluffy long landing pages that go on and on because you're going to lose people. #4: Show social proof. There are so many different versions of social proof. They could be testimonials; they could be case studies, it could be results that other people are experiencing, it could even be videos. If you're unsure on the best type of social proof, for your landing page, leave a comment below on what you're thinking, and I'll respond back if I think that's good or if not so good or if you should be doing something else instead. #5: Create a video. Not everyone enjoys reading. Some people love looking at pictures. But a picture isn't going to cause tons more people to convert. You need a video that explains everything they're going to get when they opt-in, or buy your product, or sign up for your service. The video should be short and to the point. Under three minutes, ideally under one minute. It should answer any objections people have before they sign up or buy from you. And it should describe everything in a logical order. Follow these tips; you're going to have an amazing landing page that's going to convert better. If you're collecting emails, you should be over 40%. If you're selling a product, depending on how targeted the traffic is, you could be at numbers like three, four, five, and sometimes upwards at 10% depending on the price point.
