Landing Page Problem No More

By Affiliate Hat On March 15, 2009 Under Landing Page

Most newbies in affiliate marketing have this dilemna, landing page! Yes I know how hard  it is to deal with the design of each of your landing pages. Basically only few newbies know how to carve out their own design and if they do, they’re not even sure about its quality.

I’ll tell it quick, if you have $1000 to start up, I suggest you to outsource your landing page. Go ahead and seek for paid designer on elance and some other similar sites. I’d suggest you go away with webmaster forums as their designs are mostly crap. Luckily, I have a group of designers working for me and they always satisfy my needs.

So you don’t have $1000? or even $100? Pretty simple. If you’re going to use your own domain, I highly suggest picking WordPress as the CMS for your landing page. “But I’m not making a blog?” I know you’re not but WordPress itself is more than just a blog platform. Search Engines love it and the plugins are just too good to handle almost everything.

Here’s what I am seeing most people do nowadays. They get a wordpress theme, then tweak the theme itself and there you have it. A landing page! Basically all you need to do is edit your index.php in your theme to whatever you think it can suit your offer the most. Alternatively there’s the static page setting in WordPress that makes it easy as well but doing it can harm your rankings because the static page itself and the home page could be a duplicate. We all know Google frowns on duplicates!

Getting a suitable wordpress theme is important. It must suit what is the affiliate offer you are promoting. Remember, you don’t need a custom or premium theme. All you need is a simple clean, minimalistic one which makes the product you are promoting, the primary seeker of attention. The best directory of free clean themes by far is the WordPress Theme itself.

That’s it, you have now a landing page for your product. An SEO-optimized Landing page. If you have further questions or want to ask some clarifications, you can do so using the comment form.

Thanks for the great idea. I was thinking out outsourcing my landing page but now I might try and tinker wiith WordPress. I have 4 blogs and use wordpress all the time, but for some reason I did not even think about using WP as a landing page.

I’ve actually been using WordPress for awhile now on some of my landing pages. You never really hear much about it but by using the static option on it- you have the ease of themes and plugins to help increase the look and in some cases usage of the landing page itself.

Alternatively, you can offer a blog itself to the landing page as to increase your search engine rankings. But seriously I have never done wordpress into my lp’s… maybe you can do a more specific walkthrough someday.?

I agree the static option is the better one, but editing the index.php page gives you more flexibility without ruining much in your theme…

a blog to an landing page and a landing page made w/wordpress are two different things. But you’re right most weight loss products have a blog so they can climb up into Google
