#perthmarketing TIP

What’s the difference between a Landing Page and a Microsite? Both landing pages and microsites target a segment of your web traffic and presents them with concentrated information and a call-to-action.

A landing page welcomes visitors from a specific campaign or online ad and amplifies the message of your campaign and encourages the visitor to take action. A landing page is a single page of content that focuses on one call-to-action and prompts immediate action.

A microsite is a small complimentary website (3-5 pages) designed to function as a supplement to a primary website. A microsite is usually dedicated to a specific offer or campaign and a better way to explore a complex product or service than navigating a full website. If the buying process for your product or service is lengthy or complicated, microsites are a great way to serve up content that allows your prospective customer to experience your product or service and interact with your brand until they are ready to buy.
