It takes a lot of time, effort and intellect to create a landing page. You have put in all that you could have and now your landing page is ready with a compelling call to action, relevant keywords, wonderful language, et cetra. It’s the time to publish your landing page and see the conversions going up. However when you check your analytics you find that conversions are not taking place the way you expected. Visitors are still rebounding from your web page. Perhaps, unknowingly, you might have been making some mistakes that are killing your landing page conversions.
Here are six very common of them avoiding which can help you create a high-converting landing page.
Not using specific facts and details
Using complicated language to impress consumers
Using meaningless Graphics
Of course a picture is worth a thousand words but only if it is relevant. Irrelevant illustration is only going to hurt your conversions. Make sure the graphics that you are using on your landing page are not meaningless. Don’t use pictures just for the heck of using it. Dreary stock photography and inexplicable icons may thwart your conversion rate.

Use of exaggerated phrases
While writing the copy for your landing page, think as if you are conversing with the customer. Be honest, helpful and frank. Write a simple sales copy instead of using exaggerated phrases. Try giving a genuine advice instead of straight away promoting your product or service. Besides, don’t use too much of exclamation marks as that gives the impression of a sleazy salesman or lazy copywriter.
Relying too much on the power of Free
Why not? Of course! Everyone likes free and it is a fact that the power of free is unreasonably strong. However, at the same time, it is also a fact that a large number of people do not sign up to a newsletter or a trial just because it is free. Free is not enough for people to sign up. Try thinking out of the box and including something to your content that will really impact conversions. Suppose you are promoting an ebook, you can list what your readers are going to learn from it and also include testimonials as that will increase your credibility. So many instances are there where conversions have really gone up by doing such things. Thus, let your customer know how your free ebook, newsletter or your offer would make their lives better and why should they sign up.
A good landing page will prompt your readers to sign up and finally convert into your customers. So do a research about your customers, make a note of words and phrases they use, recognize what issues they are going through and how can your product or service help them overcome the issues. Listen to them. Besides, think yourself as the customer and figure out how to sell to them as this is how you will be able to write a copy that will sell.
