The Importance of a Landing Page
As an insurance agency, you probably have a website that is full of information, links, and tools that will help your customers connect with your firm. While the idea of a web page that does it all is appealing and necessary, sometimes it makes sense to have a highly targeted page that encourages visitors to take action. That is where landing pages come into play.
What is a Landing Page?
Essentially, a landing page is a one-page website that has a singular focus—encouraging your visitors to take one particular action. You may create a landing page that encourages visitors to submit their email address, sign up for a service or fill out a survey. If you have targeted web pages, you are more likely to show up in web searches and when visitors come to the landing page, they are less likely to be distracted by other page elements.

You are providing all necessary information, but it is developed to funnel clients to the “action button.” Another important element of the landing page is white space. You do not want the page to be too crowded or difficult to read. Landing Page Tips While you may choose to work with an expert who can help you build a page, it is possible to do so yourself too.
