The Pros and Cons of Lead Generation Landing Pages

lead generation landing pages

For years, the gold standard of lead generation has been landing pages. These dedicated, campaign-specific landing pages were hosted on a brand’s own website and provided a means for full tracking and data capture on a company’s owned website. And while the creation of new lead generation landing pages could be labor intensive at times, there was no other way to reliably build an email database. Enter opt-in advertising, an off-site method of generating leads without landing pages through trusted third-party sites. Still using landing pages for lead generation? You’re not alone. Read on for the pros and cons of dedicated lead generation landing pages, and see if opt-in advertising could be right for you.

The Top 3 Benefits of Opt-In Advertising

opt-in advertising

The term “opt-in” comes up a lot in online marketing. Single opt-in and double opt-in are two different methods of consent, most often used in relation to email. And in a way, people “opt-in” to your marketing in a variety of ways, including following you on social media. But when we talk about opt-in advertising, we’re talking about users who are opting in to your email list through an ad shown on a third-party site, typically through a co-registration form where their information has already been pre-populated for an easy opt-in. So while there are many ways to opt-in to marketing messaging, here are three reasons to specifically choose opt-in advertising for your next lead generation campaign.

Landing pages. For many years, they were the end goal of a lead generation campaign. Drive traffic to the landing page in order to secure valuable personal information, AKA, a lead. At that point the lead generation campaign is concluded, personal information successfully transferred into a CRM database, and the lead nurturing process begins. And it worked well—for awhile. But as the internet has swelled with more sites and more people, web traffic simply can’t keep up. The downfall of the landing page has begun.

Are Landing Pages Dead?

landing pages

The digital landscape is constantly changing. Every year there are new trends to try and best practices to adopt. As marketing strategies evolve, some mainstays of traditional advertising fall by the wayside. And it looks like landing pages might be one of them. Think about it: direct mail paved the way for email, which has been steadily taken over by social media. And as user-generated content spreads across the internet, landing pages are on the decline.

The internet has grown to include webpages about anything and everything, becoming a far more cluttered landscape for advertisers to navigate. Users have access to more information than ever before, but many actually visit fewer sites, sticking to content aggregators like Facebook. Good news for Facebook, but bad for your website. Or is it? What if you could put a small part of your site right into Facebook? With Facebook Lead Ads, you can.

But many marketers would spend countless resources crafting unique landing pages for each campaign, and sometimes for each piece of creative in that campaign. What started as a way to more easily track and convert customers could quickly become unmanageable. We’ve all been there. And you know what we say? Skip the landing page! Here’s why:
