On the fourth day of content, we’re celebrating the landing page. Sometimes overlooked, these are the pieces of the website puzzle that make SEO worthwhile. The landing page is where qualified traffic turns into customers. SEO and internal linking strategies also intersect at the landing page: this is where you get insights on the quality of traffic to determine if you’re meeting content marketing goals or missing the mark.
Because landing pages are the places customers go to learn about your products and services, it’s one of the places where it’s OK to get a little promotional. We interviewed Manager of Content Marketing Lori Kirk to get granular about what a good landing page strategy looks like.

Why add landing pages into your content marketing mix?
Landing pages are a must-have format for a results-driven content marketing strategy. Excellent landing pages are the backbones of websites, and companies risk losing conversion opportunities if they neglect them.
Although these crucial pieces of content are relatively static (they aren’t blog content that’s changed or updated daily, or as permanent as a homepage), landing pages aren’t something to set and forget. These pages must have the look and feel of a brand, be optimized for custom goals, and tested and revised over time to continually provide users with better on-site experiences.
