Since launching the Unbounce Marketing Blog, this post has become one of our top-performing posts of all time. We hope you enjoy the read. It’s landing page examples time. I’ve compiled a list of 36 landing page designs to critique.
My commentary on marketing — and the world in general — is very polarized. I despise bad experiences. And I get pretty excited when I see exceptional ones. Friends who know me well have probably at one time or another experienced OBE (Oli’s Bathroom Experiences). No, not that kind. OBE is an ongoing rant about the shitty design of bathroom sinks. Weird thing to get angry about? Perhaps.
Fun fact: I’ve seen more landing pages than anyone on the planet, and part of that painstaking and often nosebleed-inducing exercise is that I get to see some really cool and awful things. If you’re running marketing campaigns – and who isn’t amirite? – then landing pages matter to you. Got a conversion question burning a hole in your brain pocket? Wanna know about that ti ...
Landing pages rule. Blah. Homepages suck. Blah. Do some A/B testing. Blah. Base your optimization strategy on customer feedback. Blah. All of those statements are true.

Dopo tutto, anche i visitatori della vostra pagina sono costretti a muoversi faticosamente in mezzo a tutte quelle schifezze. Pensate a loro per un attimo.
Irrational Grumpy Cat reactions aside, under-performing campaigns are a major downer – and not just for you. After all, your visitors have to wade through all that stinky poop too. Think about them for a minute. They trusted you enough to click your ad or link and you let them down with a poor landing experience.
What do Game of Thrones and the vast majority of landing pages have in common? Without seeing a “Previously on Game of Thrones” recap (complete with beheadings, baby-stealing white-bearded giant folk, fashionable incest, and the word Stark), you’d have absolutely no clue what’s going on. Similarly, if someone lands on a page and the scannable headlines, imagery and subheads ...
Some performers fear Simon Cowell when they walk out on stage. Then there are those special few who actually embrace the fear. They *want* to stand on that stage. They *want* to belt their heart out and see Simon sit there speechless, with a lump in his throat. They want pop culture’s most infamous critic to impart some of his wisdom to help their career as an artist.
