One of the life lessons that I have learned the hard way is that, no matter how good you are at what you do; you are not likely to succeed, unless lady luck smiles upon you, at least a little bit! And to me, luck is like salt in a curry. You need a pinch of it, however, if you forget to add it, the whole thing loses its taste.
Now, if you are good at designing/developing apps and/or games or you have killer idea(s) for products or services and want to reach out to your target market fast; the best options are to advertise in social media (like Facebook, Twitter) and/or Search Engine Optimization for your online advertisement. Once any or all of these are in place, you need lady luck to smile upon you. So that, the potential customer sees these advertisements and gets interested. Then, they would either like to know more about your stuff and/or would like to buy it from you and become your customer eventually.
In order to accomplish that, you would need a landing page, where the customer will end up, when they click on one of your online advertisements. This landing page could be a “Click Through” or “Reference” page, where there are further details about your stuff and links to your shopping cart/registration page. So that the customer can actually make the decision, as well as the purchase. Or the page could be the so called “Lead Capture” or “Transactional” page with a form, which the potential customer may fill out and allow you to market/sell your stuff to them at a later stage by a different method.
To make your curry tasty (i.e. to market/sell your product successfully), you would need to add the salt to taste (i.e. make your landing page that matches with the stuff you are offering). Now you could get the salt the hard way (i.e. go to the sea shore. Trap some sea water into a sand pit. Let it dry in the sunshine for a few days. Collect the salt from the sand pit. Bring it home, purify and then add it to your curry! Hoofff, that’s a lot of work!). Or you could get it the smart way. For example, you could ask your Good Samaritan neighbor for a little bit (that’s the free stuff, but that also works fine!) or if you had few bucks to spare and need really good flavor, you could buy it from the mall (that’s the premium stuff).
You might be thinking, what’s the connection dude! Well, the connection is that, for most of us people, the smart way is the right way, when we are talking about making a landing page for our stuff. And different people (and stuff) would need different things.
So, instead of building the landing page from scratch, it is better to look for a readymade template, either free or premium, and modify it to suit our needs. And there are lots of stuff, both free and premium, available online. The following are a list of 20+ Best Free Premium Landing Pages Templates Built With Bootstrap and HTML5
