The Anatomy of the Perfect Sales Page
How maximize your sales page conversions
MAXIMIZE YOUR SUCCESS WITH THE PERFECT SALES PAGE
If you are running a digital campaign and want to make sure you are maximizing your conversions, a well thought out sales page is a must. Why spend money on a campaign and have your prospects back away because your sales page didn’t match your ad’s offer, isn’t clear as to what your offer is, or it’s too cluttered to understand what it is your offering? Sales pages need to be easy to understand, have a clear call to action, and boost the visitor’s confidence enough to buy from you.
5 MUST HAVE ELEMENTS TO A SALES PAGE
Your sales page headline and the advertisement’s content that brought your visitor to the sales page should complement each other. The headline is the first things a visitor will see. Headlines should not be confusing or misleading, but compel a visitor to want to learn more. Your headline must have impeccable grammar. You certainly don’t want to lose a prospect because of a typo!
2. Use Images and Videos That Relate to Your Copy
Implementing testimonial videos, real-world examples of customers using your products or having high-quality product images on your sales page can have a positive impact on visitors. This gives online shoppers an extra incentive to read more about a product and buy.
3. Strong Call to Action
After a visitor reads the landing page headline, it is critical that they know what to do next. A conversion button should stand out and be placed right below a call-to-action or have the call-to-action as the button. The button should be big, bright, and above the fold.
4. Trust Indicators
You can build trust through your sales page by incorporating testimonials, reviews, press releases, guarantee seals, and 3rd party trust and security certifications if you have them. Giving trust signals helps your prospect feel comfortable about moving forward.
5. Always be Testing
Optimizing a sales page takes time to maximize for conversions. You need to run A/B tests, change copy, images, and alter your call-to-actions to see what users respond to. In addition to A/B testing, measuring two completely different site designs against each other will also benefit your analysis.
