If you’ve watched the Free Building Landing Pages using Unbouce course, you know it is super easy to build landing pages without the help of a programmer using Unbounce. But what about design? How can regular people create landing page designs that turn heads AND convert?

Enter the Landing Page Design Course, a huge collection of premium landing page graphics and HD training videos that make it easy for marketers to create a landing pages that look great AND perform. Think of it as the Non-Designer’s Toolkit for creating killer designs for your landing page.

Who is this course for?

This class is only for people who want to learn how to create higher converting landing pages. You may be a developer creating products of your own, or a designer who wants to get more landing page work, or a bootstrapping entrepreneur. This course is designed to help each of these groups achieve the goal of creating landing pages that sell product.

Over half of this course teaches the fundamentals of creating successful landing pages – no Photoshop experience required. Just that chunk of training is worth the price of the course. As an added bonus, I’ve included Photoshop templates that will allow you to apply your knowledge and create your actual design. Beginner-level knowledge of Photoshop CS3+ is required to get the most out of the Photoshop portion of the training.

Who is this course NOT for?

If you are someone who has no interest or desire to learn more about the sales process, or how to sell your product online – this course is NOT for you. You will be bored to tears. If your interest lies elsewhere, find someone with an interest in internet marketing and tap into their skill set, or perhaps have someone on your staff with an interest take this class.

What you will learn:

Firstly, know that with all DesignBoost courses, the goal is to have a finished product in hand at the end of the course. At the end of this course you will have a finished landing page design. As we walk through each lesson, you will have assignments that require you to take action on creating a landing page for your own purposes.

This class goes beyond just visual design training and gets into the actual contents of a successful landing page. You can dig through all of the individual lessons below for details. This course is designed to give beginners advanced knowledge and a step-by step process for crafting a compelling landing page.

In addition to video training, I’ve also supplied a graphics kit that include a huge assortment of landing page specific graphics and design templates that will help you get started on your design quickly.

Create your Landing Page Design in 7 Days

Day 1: Learn what a landing  page is and why we use them. On Day 1 we’ll dive into Lessons 1 and 2 where we’ll talk about what defines a landing page, how they are used, why they are beneficial to your business. In Lesson 2 we’ll talk about how to define your Target Audience, identify their “problem” and then define goals for your page that work for your business and your customers.

Day 2: Create your Sales Funnel and define your Metrics. In lessons 3 and 4 I’m going to show you how to create an all-important sales funnel that defines the path of how you want “visitors” to become “customers”. We’ll then talk about gathering data on your visitor, how they behave and how to measure the effectiveness of your landing page.

Day 3: Write your Headlines and Call to Action. In lessons 5 and 6 we’re going to dig into writing – first your headline ideas and then call to action copy that directly relates to what the user is after. Get ready to brainstorm lots of options because you’ll be testing several different ideas.

Day 4: Define page elements and write body copy. Creating a landing pages is like building an ice cream sundae, you can’t make the whole thing complete a foundation on the bottom. At this point we’re putting the ice cream over the bananas. :) On top of the headlines, overarching goals and target audience definition has to be further explanation of how you can help your visitor – that’s what we’ll cover in defining page elements and writing body copy.

Day 5: Create your layout and color scheme. In lessons 9 and 10 we’ll start sketching out the layout of your page based on the headlines, CTA, page elements and body copy defined on days 1 – 4. We’ll then talk about how to define a color scheme that increases conversions for your page.

Day 6: Designing your page and usability testing. In Lessons 11 and 12 it’s time to learn about how to get into the actual design of your landing page, which should be quick work since you’ve done all of your homework on days 1 – 5. Once you have your page designed we’ll then talk about how to line up the right people to do some usability testing on your page.

Day 7: Split testing and post-conversion user experience. Ok now for the exciting part – testing and optimizing your design. This will be an ongoing process, but in Lesson 13 I’ll show you how to find the right tools for split testing your page and give you ideas on how to continue your relationship with visitors after they convert.
