You spend good money buying clicks. Since every click leads to a landing experience—someone clicks on your ad or email link, hey, they land somewhere—you're really spending that money on generating paid landing experiences. Given that realization, how do you maximize landing experiences, with the quantitative goal of increasing conversions and the qualitative goal of building your brand?

If you're already using landing pages, this seminar will present a compelling case for thinking of them as landing experiences, and discuss why and how you should think outside of that box. With a combination of theoretical frameworks and on-the-ground tactics, we'll show you new ways to energize your post-click marketing to achieve absolutely envious conversion rates.
