In today’s article we are going to explain the types of landing pages that exist for digital marketing campaigns and online advertising. To illustrate the post we have done a search in Spain as an example: “Master in Tourism”, where advertisers use different strategies using the different landing page options that exist.

1. Primary corporate site as one of the types of Landing Pages

Where all the visitors arrive from all the sources of traffic regardless of the objective of each one of those channels. There Is No difference per channel, ie visitors who arrive from organic results will access the same content as those arriving through Adwords campaigns or Facebook. Here we put the example of Master in Tourism EUDE.

2. Landing specific watertight pages by school, course or service

A landing page is a Web page to which a user arrives, usually through a click on a link in a marketing action. This web page is an extension of the communication of the action, which explains in more detail the offer of the course or service that is communicating or promoting.

Watertight landing pages have very specific design characteristics That, in response to attitudes based on the psychology of visitors, limit the depth of navigation through a corporate site. They make it easier for visitors to focus on the main goal for which it has been designed, which is no other than to carry out an action such as asking for an appointment, a call or registering to receive more information in different ways. EOBS of the Rey Juan Carlos University employs a not very deep landing page. Despite being a good solution, it is not focused on the course we have sought for what would be better.

3. Multi-page Microsite (multiple landing pages)

Let’s say it’s a hybrid between corporate site and landing pages. It allows for more navigation by the contents of the school, but always focused very clearly to the register of the visitors. You never miss the visitor’s view form, impede in the “above the fold” area or above the view.

The microsites allow to structure the information in a more complete way than that of a landing page and in a simpler way than that of a corporative site, since they generally have a different objective than the primary Web site. A microsite seeks the ability to adapt content and design in a more dynamic way.

The example we show is the Instituto de Empresa, one of the best business schools in the world, also as far as Digital Marketing is concerned.

4. Mono Website continuous as one of the types of landing pages

We can say that this design offers the illusion to the user that it is in a Web site with navigation with traditional menus, although really the information resides in a single HTML and the use of the menus moves us, in a smooth way, to an area of the Web page already Loaded in the browser. It can be used to give a greater sense of seriousness and complexity of the services offered while maintaining the ease of browsing. The case we present from GLION is not completely an example of a continuous website with a menu, but it is quite close. A closer example is Our corporate website, but to do the analysis, we wanted to use an example aligned with the rest.

Can a good web design increase the conversion rate? The answer is yes.

El  diseño UX/UI (experiencia de usuario/interfaz de usuario) ha cobrado una gran relevancia en los últimos años. Con páginas (landings) claramente orientadas a objetivos, cada decisión tomada en el proceso de diseño puede ser decisiva a la hora de llevar al usuario a buen puerto.
