Why Commercial Real Estate Companies Need Strong Landing Pages
This is how people find your website! Once they land on your website, what happens? Do they stay and interact with your site or do they move on to a competitors prettier, more visually interesting and interactive landing page? Can you afford to be losing business because of a poorly designed landing page? Did you know that an effective landing page strategy can improve conversions by over 50%?!
A landing page is a single web page that appears in response to a visitor clicking on a search engine optimized (SEO) search result. While many commercial real estate businesses use landing pages, research shows most of these pages are under-utilized and don’t do a good job at converting a visitor into a customer. Most web pages are not designed to win customers and tend to be underwhelming and without a call-to-action. The same way a good website is designed to influence a visitor to take action, a good landing page will create the same opportunity. Your landing page should facilitate a very specific action that you want your end-user to take in direct relation to your business objectives. You should build a new landing page for each new marketing campaign and have one specific offer for each landing page. By linking a landing page to a specific campaign you can then see which channels are bringing in the most leads and tweak future strategy based on your campaign results.
While the purpose of a landing page is to increase lead generation, landing pages can be used for a variety of efforts. Commercial real estate businesses can use a landing page to drive visitors to their events, showcase new listings or transactions, enroll people in email newsletters or to personalize their social media profile links. By sending your social media platform connections to specific landing pages that are personalized to each network, you can deepen the connection and enhance the engagement in those networks. Ultimately, if designed well, your visitors become conversions which typically leads to more customers, which means more money for your business.
Additionally, landing pages play a huge part of SEO value. The more landing pages you have, the more chances your website will rank higher in search engine results. The higher your website ranks, your conversion rate also increases.
