Editor’s Note
Landing Pages in 5-4-3-2-1… 

Search engine pay-per-click advertising programs and tools for keyword analysis and analysis of clickthrough rates are part of the equation when advertising online, but equally important is what comes after the click — how do you entice a viewer to buy the widget you have for sale on your landing page? What is it about your merchandise that makes it irresitible? Or what is it about the design of the offer that makes it irresistible? There are a million different factors in combination that make your offer attractive, but chances are the five factors included in “5 Tips To Improve Conversion On B2B Landing Pages” by Amanda Simmons on Search Engine Land’s Strictly Business column are also present. These tips apply equally to B2C products, and are good, all-around sales tips for any kind of business.
