#1 A Striking Headline

A Striking Headline

Headline breaks the ice, which is most crucial. Certainly, it has to be strong and catchy enough to be able to draw the users’ attention instantaneously. It is this line that makes the user go through rest of the content following it on the landing page. It should be short and crisp, and it will be great if it mentions of the pain point of the user. That’s when the user gets bound to stop for a moment and is compelled to go through the content. Apart from this, it should be presented in bold and striking font. A strong headline is essential because it captures the user’s attention and entices them to read the rest of your landing page.

#2 Your USP (Unique Selling Proposition)

USP refers to the reason why YOU! Yes, it is why the user has come to your page, and why they have to take further step which is desirable by you. Probably, a pain point will be a rock solid reason for the user to land on to this page.

You may strengthen your USP, also by presenting an offer, discount and anything that gets you in demand. If you want your visitor to really spend some time on your page, make your offer as unique as possible.

#3 Personalized CTA (Call to Action)
