Creating a Template

It's a best practice to have a common look and feel to your landing pages so your customers and prospects recognize your company and your brand. If you intend to create several similar landing pages we suggest creating a landing page to use as a template. See the instructions below on how to clone the template and quickly deploy/publish the landing page.

Manage Landing Pages

To view essential information for your landing page do the following:

  • Click Content > Pages > Landing Pages
  • Each column is explained below:
    • Remove = Deletes the landing page. Note, this option is only visible if the landing page status is unpublished. 
    • Name = The name of the landing page. 
    • Link = Link using your selected cname for the landing page. 
    • Short URL = Automatically converted short URL for the landing page link. 

Use of Shortened URLs

Shortened URLs, such as, are equivalent to the original link and additional parameters, such as an email mail merge, will not work. When using additional parameters on a URL use the full URL instead of the shortened URL.

    • Total Views = How many times the landing page has been viewed. 
    • Submissions = Conversions, or the number of times the form (if one is present) is submitted. 
    • Conversion Rate = Number of Submissions divided by Total Views. 
    • Modify Date = Date and time the landing page was modified. 
    • Status = Published or Unpublished. Published means the landing page is live on the internet. 
    • Actions = Edit to launch the landing page designer and edit it. 

Editing a Landing Page

To edit a landing page do the following:

  • Click Content Pages > Landing Pages 
  • Click the Edit link under the "Actions" column in the table. 

Using the Visual Landing Page Designer

The visual landing page is an ultra-easy to use drag/drop solution that empowers the most sophisticated landing page designs without sacrificing customization. Just drag/drop the elements under the "Drag and Drop Items" section on the left-menu to the canvas on the right. Click on each element, including backgrounds, the canvas, and more to customize individual pieces of the design element. To begin using the Visual Landing Page Designer do the following:

  • Click New > Landing Page
  • Fill out the short form and select "Visual" as the Design Type

Responsive Design

All contents in the visual landing page designer are responsive. Since the layout is free-form, the contents will be displayed as mobile responsive in the order in which the contents are added to the landing page. If your content is appearing out of order on the mobile device, it is likely due to lower elements loading in before upper elements because of the order they were placed. As such, it's best to create your landing page from the top down (logo on top, contents, form, etc.). 

Adding 3rd Party Code

It might be necessary to add 3rd party JavaScript or HTML code to the landing page. For example, if you have a live chat system. It might help to add the live chat code, usually a block of JavaScript, into the landing page. Case in point, if your landing page is serving up the page for visitors coming from a Google AdWords campaign you want to make sure you do whatever you can to convert the visitor. Placing a web form, phone number and live chat on the page will increase conversion probability. 

 Similarly, you might be using a landing page as the Thank You page after a visitor submits one of your forms on a separate landing page designed to convert pay per click traffic. In this case, you should add the pay per click vendors conversion tracking code into the Thank You page in the same area.

To insert 3rd party code do the following while in the landing page designer:

  • Expand the "Page Properties" section
  • Under SEO Properties double click the area in the "3rd Party Tracking Code" row under the Value column
  • Insert the 3rd party code in the popup box

Insertion Location

 Tracking code is inserted above the closing body tag on the landing page.

Saving a Draft of a Landing Page

To save a draft version of your landing page to edit later, do the following:

  • Go to the landing page designer
  • Click "File", which is in the grey menu on top
  • Select "Save As Draft.." from the drop down

Adding a Layout Template

You can add a Layout Template to your landing page to add a header, footer, or other consistant syling and branding. To add a layout template, 

  • Click "File"
  • Select "Save" if this is your first time saving
  • Select "Save As" or "Save As Draft" if you have previously saved
  • Select the appropriate Layout Template in the Template drop-down menu

The content from the Visual Builder will appear where the %%content%% tag is located on your Layout Template. Content styling, such as text and headers, will still be controlled by the styles you used when creating the Landing Page. 

Styles from the Layout Template will override styling in the Landing Page. Make sure to use unique CSS IDs and classes for your Layout Template content or it may cause odd CSS behavior in the Landing Page. As a best practice, always preview your Landing Pages in multiple browsers before publishing.

Publishing a Landing Page

To publish your landing page first save it and then publish it by doing the following:

  • Go to the landing page designer
  • Click "File", which is in the grey menu on top
  • Select "Save..." or "Save As..." from the drop down
  • Click "File" again
  • Choose "Publish"

Cloning a Landing Page

To clone a landing page open an existing landing page (preferably one saved as a template) and choose save as by doing the following:

  • Go to the landing page designer
  • Click "File", which is in the grey menu on top
  • Select "Save As..." from the drop down

You can now save your landing page as another landing page effectively cloning the original one. 

Previewing a Landing Page

To preview your landing page and see how it will look when it's published do the following:

  • Go to Content Pages > Landing Pages
  • Under the Actions column click the gear and select Preview
  • Alternatively, go to the landing page designer, Click "File", which is in the grey menu on top, select "Preview" from the drop down
  • Previewing the landing page opens the landing page in a new browser tab. No views will be recorded on the landing page while in Preview mode.

Using Open Graph Tags

Common Questions

I copied code from my website into the WYSIWYG when creating a HTML landing page but it's all messed up, what happened?

It's likely the path of your images and files used in your code is incorrect. The code you're copying is running on a different web server, with resources that point to something like Code used in the WYSIWYG editor will now run on Lead Liaison's web servers. The WYSIWYG editor uses raw HTML and all resources in your code (referenced files, images, etc.) must be converted to use an absolute path instead of a relative path. View this resource  to understand relative vs. absolute paths.

Layout Templates Might Help

Lead Liaison's Layout Template tool automatically converts all resources from relative paths to absolute paths. The HTML WYSIWYG editor is primarily intended for small snippets of HTML to pop into a Layout Template along with a form. 

My elements are appearing out of order on a mobile device

When the landing pages switch to responsive mode, elements are loaded in the order that they are placed on the page. For example, if you place a form on the page, and then a text box above the form, the form will load first and may push the text box down. To correct this, simply re-place the elements in the order they should load on the device. In general, it's best to create landing pages from top to bottom.
