Landing Pages An Important Tool For Online Marketing

Landing Pages are called lead generator or revenue maker in online marketing. On a landing page a visitor clicks on an advertisement or search engine result and bring a seller of commodity or service before him so he could either make an online purchase or gain a query about that particular service.

On top of content and lead generation proliferation landing pages are said to be of two types: orientation and transactional. Orientation landing page shows important information of any use to a customer or visitor in form of display text, images, dynamic compilations of relevant links, or other elements.
