How to Promote Your Landing Page Using Paid Ads

By Tinuiti Team

Landing pages can be a great way to drum up business, as well as hone in on the messaging, products and strategies that really resonate with your customers.

No matter what platform you’re using to promote your landing pages, customization is the single most important factor in your success.

By this, I mean customizing your ad to the exact landing page you’re driving people to.

AdWords PPC landing pages

With these ads, you’ll need to consider the SEO factor. Audiences will only see your ad if it has a good quality score in relation to the keywords and terms you’re advertising on. This means you should:

You should also understand the overall “landing page experience” that Google wants to deliver its users, so be sure to read the full policy before launching your ad.

Use social media, try your hand at email marketing or even pull up the page at your next trade show booth or convention event.

Landing page promotion can come in many forms, and as with most marketing efforts, a multi-pronged approach is going to be most effective. Consider combining paid ads along with organic and off-line efforts as well, and make sure to measure your results and tweak your strategy in response.
