You’re about to get a new member on your sales and marketing team.
She’s going to take care of:

The chances you’re going to read this whole article from start to finish are pretty much zero, right?
It’s ok, no offense taken.
Even though it’s Thrive and you LOVE our content, it’s just hard to get through a 3000 word article on anything these days.
Attention and time are precious commodities that we don’t (and can’t) give away lightly.
So how are you meant to convince visitors to give away 1+ hours of their time to watch your webinar...?

So here’s three of the best webinar landing page examples we could find — deconstructed. You’ll see what works, what doesn’t, and how you can create a high converting webinar landing page of your own.
Almost every marketing blog on the internet will tell you this. It's internet marketing 101.
In order to get visitors to hand over their email addresses, you need to offer them something of value in return.
That value usually comes in the form of a downloadable guide.
What every marketing blog on the internet doesn’t cover however, is how to create a downloadable PDF?
With a lack of design sense, low to no budget and even less time, how do you even begin to go about creating beautiful, value packed PDFs that will leave your new subscribers' mind blown and eager for more?
Since it's the silly season, we decided to give all the affiliate marketers out there an early Christmas present...
Responsive comparison and review tables that actually look good on mobile.
And not only do they look good, they're conversion focused as well. These tables are specifically formatted to keep your buy buttons in view on mobile.

"It's goooood" your friend tells you with that signature high pitch at the end - which tells you know it's not in fact 'good', and their comment is a well meaning but transparent attempt to spare your feelings.
You're not that insulted, you kind of already knew.
Even though you spent hours putting together your new landing page, it just doesn't feel like a winner. I mean it's not terrible... it's just not that amazing either.
And while you're OK with the fact that you've put together a less than convincing landing page (hey, it happens), the real problem is you have no idea how to improve it.
Can you perfectly summarize yourself, your skills and your businesses’ mission in just a few sentences?
That’s basically the task you're faced with when you get to that little ‘About Me’ section on your website.
'Write about yourself. Make sure you highlight all your achievements...but don’t sound arrogant. But at the same time don’t sell yourself short. Oh and make sure you add some personality…'
And then there’s putting it all together so it fits your branding and looks professional enough to be trusted.
It’s safe to say crafting a bio for your site is not as easy as it sounds. Unfortunately, it’s also an essential element for conversions.
If you had to get someone to hand over $2,000 just by giving them a sheet of paper, what on earth would you put on that page?

Every element on your landing page should be the best use of content possible to push your visitor towards your landing page goal.
How do you figure out what the 'best use of content possible' is?
Step 1: Figure out what the one goal of your landing page is.
Step 2: Go through each page section and ask yourself... Is this the best possible use of content and page space to get a visitor to [insert landing page goal here]?
Imagine this: You’ve spent weeks or months putting together your latest product launch. You’re excited as hell because you have a killer product, a well thought out marketing campaign, and projections are high.
The launch date finally comes and you send that first email to your list, anticipating the rush of phone notifications with the words “John Doe just ordered ‘Your Killer Product” for $997”, but 10 minutes pass since you sent the email. 20 minutes. 30 minutes. NO sales.
‘Huh, that’s odd... Nothing. Oh well, it’ll probably pick up towards the end of the launch’ you think.
But it doesn’t. The launch ends up being a total dud.
