There are two main types of landing page:
1) Reference Landing Page
Reference landing pages deliver information relevant to the visitor. This could include text, images, links or other elements not requiring interaction.
2) Transactional Landing Page
Transactional landing pages ask visitors to complete a transaction such as clicking on an advertisement, filling out a form or downloading a file with the aim being immediate or eventual conversion of that prospect to a sale. To aid the capturing of new leads, transactional pages generally seek visitor contact details such as a name, email address and/or a telephone number.
A visitor taking the desired action on a transactional landing page is known as a conversion. Landing page quality can be measured by the percentage of visitors who complete the desired action (the conversion rate). Since the Return on Investment (ROI) of pay per clíck (PPC) campaigns is often determined by the conversion rate, advertisers should be constantly testing, tweaking and improving their landing pages. We will discuss testing methods available, such as A/B testing and multivariate testing, in a later lesson.
Why Are Landing Pages Important?
In PPC and search marketing campaigns, the landing page is usually customized very closely to the advertisement which triggered it. In PPC campaigns, landing pages are vital in order to “close the sale” and encourage visitors to take the action you want them to take. By adding a parameter to the landing page URL (and therefore forming a tracking URL), advertisers can measure the ROI on their PPC ads based on relative clíck-through rates.
While enticing ad copy is very important in order to attract clicks, effective landing pages are vital in order to “close the sale” and encourage your visitors to take the action you want them to take.
Landing pages often determine whether you make a conversion or not. Using landing pages on your site also means that some visitors won’t ever see your home page. First impressions haven’t ever been so important, so you need your landing pages to represent your business, product or service in the best possible light.
What are the Goals of a Landing Page?
Many marketers make the mistake of assuming that a conversion is the main goal of an effective landing page. But attracting and capturing qualified leads is an easier and more important goal. Why? Because you can always “sell” to visitors later. Grabbing their contact details ensures you have captured them at the height of their interest.
So the main goals of a landing page are:
1) To Attract Prospects (primary goal) – grab email address and/or phone number
2) To Produce Conversions (secondary goal)
Features of an Effective Landing Page:
The ingredients for an effective landing page include:
- Reinforced Ad Message
- Punchy Headings
- Short Paragraphs
- Enticing Copy
- Few Distractions
- Value Proposition
- Compelling Images
- Little or No Navigation
- Calls to Action
- Few choices
- Simple Language and Concepts
- Important Content “Above the Fold”
- Establish Visitor Trust
- Foolproof Conversion Process
- Test, Tweak and Test Again

Here are 10 of the worst myths about networking, and their current, more sensible replacements:
1. Networking means meeting as many people as you can.
If possessing a huge stack of business cards or having met every business person in your city was a ticket to riches, this might be true. But it’s not. Networking gives you a chance to meet new people, but quality trumps quantity in human relationships, every time.
2. Networking means telling people about your business whenever you get a chance.
There’s nothing wrong with letting the folks at your gym, at your place of worship, and at your book club know what you do for a living. But people will quickly forget the details of your professional life. What they’ll remember is you — if you approach them with a desire to learn about them, as well.
3. Networking is hard work.
It may be that you’re working too hard. Networking happens naturally if you introduce yourself to people, stay in touch with people you’ve met, and think, in every interaction, “How could I help this person?”
4. Networking should start when you’re job-hunting.
If you get the call that you’ve been selected to compete on “American Idol,” it’s too late to start an exercise program or go on a diet. When you’re out of work, it’s a bit late in the game to start networking toward your next job. If you have to start then, do it; but it’s far better to start networking now, and build contacts for the job search that will inevitably come your way if you’re a working person who isn’t close to retirement.
5. Networking is for schmoozers.
Schmoozing is by far the least important networking skill. Good listening is far more useful to a relationship-builder than the ability to spit a thirty-second elevator pitch into someone’s face.
6. Networking is only for entrepreneurs.
If you don’t believe that having business contacts and experts at your disposal would be useful for you as a corporate person, talk to any top business leader and ask his or her opinion. It’s essential to be connected to other professionals, not just for “it’s-who-you-know” reasons but in order to get perspectives on your business and career issues that are different from?your own.
7. Networking is a waste of time.
Your networking time will surely be wasted if you approach each interaction as an opportunity hawk your wares. Ditto if you believe that your job as a networker is to tell every person you meet all about your job search and express no interest in him or her. If you can get past these bad networking ideas and cultivate some relationships, your time will be well spent.
8. Networking is expensive.
Joining a Yahoo! group is free. The popular networking site LinkedIn has a free membership level and 15 million users. Plenty of face-to-face networking events in your town will cost you nothing more than parking or bus fare.
9. Networking is phony.
If you go to a party at your sister’s house and meet her boyfriend’s dad, is your conversation phony? Networking conversations need not be any different than any other interactions between new acquaintances. It’s up to you.
10. Networking is a thing of the past.
Person-to-person relationships are more important in business than ever. If anything, networking is a thing of the future.

Hmmm am not feeling well today enjoying my headache until now and took my medication but still the headache is there. Watched Movies the whole day, what a great day ha? Hehhe i don’t know if this is a great day, hey at least i got my off day and spend the whole day at home, free from the stress office life.
Been thinking the whole day beside watched some boring movie today… So i came up to think that we can actually make money buy just doing a very small investment.
Take into account you want to start a blog, and the main reason you want to start your blog because you want to make money from blogging. You are not going to sell anything on your blog or physical product, you are just doin writting job.
So in order to start you need to get your hosting server and domain name. I would say, you are going to spend around $120. Where the USD110.00 goes to your hosting server while another $10.00 goes to your Domain name. This is only an estimation, you may be able to get a better deal from the amount i mentioned.
The next thing to do
I supposed you already got your hosting server and domain name too, now setup your wordpress blog (or some others blogging platform) if you do not know how to do this try to ask your hosting provider if they provide this server for free. on the other hand, you can also ask your friend who knows about this.
By now, you already have your blog running smooth…play around with the admin panel (dashboard) start posting and develop your blog content.
Get your Blog Index
after everything setup, your work now is to make sure your blog indexed by google search engine, the fastest way to do this is by submitting your blog content to digg.com. Apart from that you also need to submit your blog to a free search engine submission site. example submitme.com (search it at google using this keywords: free search engine submission) and you should find so many site providing the service.
there you go! you are just one step from doubling of what you already spent for your blog. Yup No kidding, the fastest way to make money with your blog is to do paid posting or paid review. So i am going to list all the site you can register to make your first money.
I sort them out based on ranking ( i mean, the best money making provider)
There is lots more money making opportunity, however i don’t make money with them, so i don’t list it here.
