The Anatomy of a High Converting Landing Page

There's an art and science to creating high converting landing pages.

Every marketer out there has their own secret formula.

Some people use long form sales letters. Some use short. Some use video. Some don't use video at all. Some people create side-scrolling sales pages and some marketers let users scroll through pages and pages of info.

With that being said...

The nice people over at Quicksprout believe they've unlocked the secret to creating a high converting landing page. And they've distilled that wisdom into an informative infographic that you'll find below. Here's their 9 fundamental elements of a high converting landing page:

The Marketing Minute - Email & Internet Marketing News from Around the Web

The big news over the last little while has been about Gmail’s new tabbed inbox (check out Tab Attack) and Facebook’s latest series of updates.

There's other stuff going on as well. Like Microsoft picking a fight with Google, we discovered Tapiture (it's like Pinterest for dudes) and speaking of Pinterest they released a pretty cool feature recently as well.

Before you dig into the hottest articles below I wanted to share with you my favourite quote of the week. It comes from Tom Bell, VP of Corporate Communications at Email List,

"Here's an experiment for you: Imagine if the US Postal Service determined whether to throw away a piece of mail before delivering it; or if Twitter, Facebook, or YouTube hid your latest post to “protect” its users. Sounds crazy, right? Yet, that's exactly what's happening in the email industry."

Microsoft has a serious beef with Google.

Back in late July we reported on Gmail's new tabbed inbox and what marketers can do to beat it.

Understanding Canada's AntiSpam Legislation

We were at an event last week and everyone was asking us about Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) and what it means for business.

So we wanted to take a moment to get you up to speed and put your mind at ease when it comes to email marketing in Canada.

Anyone who’s been doing email marketing for a little while will be familiar with the Double Opt-In process. Some people call it “permission based marketing” the idea of which was made popular by the ever insightful Seth Godin in his free ebook “Permission Marketing” which you can still grab here http://www.sethgodin.com/permission/.

The Double Opt-In process is where you get confirmed permission from an individual to send them email messages from an Email Marketing Service like MyBizMailer.

It’s an added (and often unwanted) step during the signup process. One that truly confirms that the person who’s signing up to your newsletter actually wants to hear from you. This not only helps to keep your email marketing reputation in good standing it also provides you with a higher quality list. Which helps to keep your spam score low (even if there’s some hidden influence that effect your spam score that don’t really get talked about much).
