In a previous post we discussed the importance of landing pages in a PPC campaign and why it is necessary for a PPC advert to link to the most relevant page on your website. To recap, a landing page is the
page visitors are directed to after they have clicked on a link or an advert. The aim of a landing page should be to convert
the lead, and the landing page should contain content or products relevant to the advertisements copy.
With PPC, the
campaign's landing pages can make or break the campaign. Since the advertiser is paying for traffic to their website, it is
important that the highest possible percentage of visitors convert in order to ensure maximum ROI. This is why clear calls
to action one of the most important elements on a landing page. Testing and tweaking also plays a big role in the success
of a campaign.

information to make a purchase decision. Web copy should be to the point and easy to read. Online readers tend to scan copy,
so bold the key-phrases you want visitors to pay attention to.
Provide the visitor with easy access to other parts
of your website by making use of linking within your landing page's copy. Tell the visitor what you want them to do and make
it easy for them to take action on your website.
