Building a landing page in the past wasn’t easy.
Even if you wanted to create a simple landing page it took a lot of time and effort to create one.
But times have changed.
Nowadays there are many different tools on the market thanks to which you can create a landing page really quickly.
And in today’s blog post I’m going to tell you what is my favorite landing page builder and I’ll show you how you can quickly build a landing page that converts.
Normally landing pages are built to capture an email address in exchange for something else, for example an ebook, a report, a video etc.
However you can also use it to promote something without asking for an email address.
For example you can use a landing page just to redirect a visitor to a different page, for example a sales page.
What’s most important is that you can create such a landing page yourself within 10-15 minutes.
You don’t need to hire anybody with big experience to create a landing page for you which probably would cost you quite a lot.
In order to show you the power of this WordPress plugin, let’s quickly create a basic landing page using the Thrive Content Builder drag-and-drop editor.
Thrive Content Builder lets you create landing pages in minutes
Let's start from the bottom, i.e., from placing opt-in fields on the page.
First click on the element Lead Generation and drag it on to the page.
Once you do this you will create an opt-in form like the one below. You can change the color of the button, you can change the text on the button, you can change the layout to horizontal, you can change the size of it.
Now let's put this sentence above the opt-in form: Enter your name and email below to get instant access to this free ebook.
Now let's insert an image into the landing page. In order to do this, click on the Image element on the menu and choose your image or an ebook cover.
If an image or an ebook cover is too big you can always make it smaller by clicking on the image and moving the slider to the left.
Next, let's put the headline at the very top.
Now I'm going to put one more line of text below the headline to tell a visitor what he/she may expect to find in the ebook.
Let's also add a few bullet points. Click on the Styled List element in the menu and choose one of the styles available. I'll pick Style 2.
And my landing page is ready. I could leave it as it is, however I decided that I want to move the image to the right and the text to the left.
In order to do this I need to insert columns into the landing page.
If you want to insert columns into the landing page then just click on the element Column Layout.
Now I'm going to put the text in the left column and the image in the right column. Just drag and drop.
OK, my landing page is ready. It took me around 10 minutes to do it.
I know it’s not the most beautiful landing page, but it doesn’t matter.
What matters is that you can quickly build such a page yourself and start collecting email addresses right away, and then, if you wish, you can tweak it.
But although this landing page is not great at least you already have something that works and you can use it to build your list of subscribers.
And if you want to create a nicer landing page then have a look at the templates available within Thrive Landing Pages.
Currently there are over 160 pre-designed templates that you can edit as you please.
