Lead Liaison provides a visual landing page designer to easily build rich, beautiful landing pages optimized around targeted marketing messages. Images, videos, HTML content, web forms and more can be embedded into your landing page.
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.
To view essential information for your landing page do the following:
Shortened URLs, such as bit.ly, 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.
To edit a landing page do the following:
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:
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.).
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:
Tracking code is inserted above the closing body tag on the landing page.
To save a draft version of your landing page to edit later, do the following:
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,
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.
To publish your landing page first save it and then publish it by doing the following:
To clone a landing page open an existing landing page (preferably one saved as a template) and choose save as by doing the following:
You can now save your landing page as another landing page effectively cloning the original one.
To preview your landing page and see how it will look when it's published do the following:
Now that you've designed your landing page to perfection, you'll likely be sharing it on social media. To ensure your social post displays the correct image thumbnails and metadata, you'll need to use Open Graph Tags in your landing page. To learn more about the Open Graph Protocol click here. To add your Open Graph Tags do the following:
<!-- Facebook Open Graph Meta Tags - Sean is Awesome --> <meta property="og:title" content="My Page Title"> <meta property="og:type" content="article"> <meta property="og:url" content="http://pages.athena-tech.com/test-social-tags-new"> <meta property="og:image" content="http://athena-tech.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/shutterstock_46801075-960x430.jpg"> <meta property="og:site_name" content="Athena"> <meta property="og:description" content="Write one to two sentences that quickly describe your content. Include a call to action at the end."> <!--Insert Twitter Card Markup - He really is. All hail Sean --> <meta name="twitter:card" content="summary_large_image"> <meta name="twitter:site" content="@leadliaison"> <meta name="twitter:domain" content="http://pages.athena-tech.com/test-social-tags-new"> <meta name="twitter:title" content="CONTENT HEADLINE HERE"> <meta name="twitter:description" content="One short sentence describing your content. Include a CTA. Keep it short!"> <meta name="twitter:image" content="http://athena-tech.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/shutterstock_46801075-960x430.jpg">
HTML landing pages have the benefit of using Layout Templates to mirror your companies branding and website look and feel. To begin using the HTML Landing Page Designer do the following:
Step 1: Configure
Step 2: Content
The web form will be placed directly below the HTML content in your landing page by default. To place the form info the WYSIWYG editor select your form from the dropdown and click the "Insert Form" button as shown below to insert the %%form%% tag.
Step 3: Publish
Landing pages are tracked as an Activity History event on a prospect's Prospect Profile page. Additionally, total landing page views, conversions and conversion rates are recorded. To view these key statistics for your landing page do the following:
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 http://your.domain.com. 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.
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.
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.
