What is a landing page?

Ever taken your kids to Chuck E Cheese? Or some equally crazy kid play area? You know, the kind of place where there are a gazillion kids running around, all hyped up on sugar and the experience?

Ever tried to get your kid’s attention in the middle of that mad house? Tons of fun, right?

That’s sometimes what it can feel like when you’re trying to get your ideal client’s attention online, especially on social media!

There are all kinds of things trying to get their attention at the same time. How can you possibly stand out from that noise for long enough to start a relationship with them?

Enter landing pages.

A landing page is a page with one single purpose – to get your visitors to act! Whether it’s sign up for your optin or webinar, buy your course or program, or join your Facebook group, everything on that page is created to drive the visitor towards one single action.

And because everything is focused on that one goal, there aren’t any distractions. There isn’t a menu to take visitors to different pages. There aren’t any links to social media.

It’s just one distraction free web page with one single goal for visitors.

Why do you need a landing page?

Do you want to grow your email list?

Sell services, programs, or courses?

Funnel people into your launch sequence?

Then you need a landing page!

Landing pages statistically convert better than other web pages just because there aren’t any other distractions.

Someone is either going to sign up for your product or freebie – or they aren’t. There isn’t any other option.

You don’t have to worry about losing them to your Instagram feed. They aren’t going to hop over to your blog and then forget to sign up (or worse yet- not be able to find their way back!)

They’re like your very own little captive audience – so sell away, girl! Promote your freebie! Pitch your webinar. Sell your program! You’ve got their full attention.

How does a landing page work?

Not sure how to make this work for your business?

Here’s how an effective landing page can grow your email list or gets sales on autopilot:

  1. Your ideal client hears about your amazing offer through an ad, social media post, email, etc.
  2. They click over to your landing page and reading your amazing copy that convinces them they need whatever you’re selling!
  3. They fill out the optin form or purchase your product.

Sounds easy right?

All you need is to come up with an amazing offer (whether free or paid), promote that offer, and have a landing page that does the rest for you!

Do I need a website for a landing page?

Not necessarily. Most email marketing platforms like MailChimp, ConvertKit, and Mailerlite allow you to create landing pages for optins for free right in them.

It’s a good budget option if you absolutely can’t afford to pay for hosting for a website yet.

The downsides are you can’t customize them a lot and people can tell that they are on your mail service. It’s kind of like advertising that your own a strict budget with your business (aka not really profitable yet).

I don’t know about you, but that’s a red flag for me and will most likely keep me from investing in someone’s products or services.

You can also pay for a landing page software like LeadPages, ClickFunnels, or Unbounce.

But honestly, if you’re on a budget and looking to save money while you grow your business, you don’t want to do this.


They’re all really pricey… and all subscription based. That means you’ll be spending money month in and month out, year after year, just to host your landing pages.

Wouldn’t you rather be saving that money towards getting a website?

How much does LeadPages cost?

As of March 2019, the basic plan for LeadPages costs $38 per month. That’s $456 per year just for your landing pages!

If you plan on selling products or courses through your landing pages, then you’ll need to be on their $48 per month plan ($576 per year if you’re keeping track!).

How much does ClickFunnels cost?

As of March 2019, the basic plan for ClickFunnels is a whopping $98 per month. That’s a boatload, right?

How can I get landing pages without spending a fortune?

Don’t have $1200 in your budget for a year’s worth of landing pages? Yeah, I’m right there with you!

So what’s your best alternative if you want landing pages that are more professional (and convert better) than the landing pages from MailChimp… but you don’t want to shell out a small fortune for a landing pages software either?

What if I told you that you could get amazing landing pages on your own domain and hosting account? Without having to pay a web designer to build them for you?

Let’s break down the numbers here. A year’s worth of hosting and domain through Siteground is $63. That’s less than one month of ClickFunnels!!

From there you can create your own amazing landing pages using the Elementor plugin.
