1. Incompetent Webpage Speed

Can you stomach a bit of bad news? Researches say that 74% of your customers will be bailing if the page fails to load within 5 seconds. Page speed has the biggest influence when optimizing your landing page. If you are an e-commerce or online store owner then improving your website speed could lead you to cover over half of the traffic to bounce.

So, you want some tips to improve page speed? Here it is.

Clean up the code.

Trust us, it will work, cleaning up the junk in the code is the fastest way to improve your page speed.

Resize and compress images

Landing pages that use too many or too large images and long videos have longer loading times. So try to resize and compress them.

Minimize Redirects

Try to use 301 redirects which is the SEO-friendly way.

2. Messy Design

You know what? 48% of the landing page has multiple call to action and offers for customers. And, only 16% of landing pages are free from the annoyance of navigation bars. This 16% has shown 100% improvement in their conversion because their landing pages are designed to be focused on a single call to action and have eliminated the navigation bar.

3. Limp Headlines

You must be amused to know that limp leadlines can reduce the possibility of high traffic by 14% percent, You know that the headline makes the first impression and it is what makes the customer scroll down. Limp headlines create difficulties for you to hold on to more visitors in more than 5-10 seconds.

Understanding the expectation and choices of your target audience can help you to prepare a better headline. The main thing you have to take care of is the title must match the entire landing page content.

4. Generic Call To Action

CTA when put in the right position can help you improve your sales. But the question is where to put the CTA? Your CTA must stand out from everything else on the page. It is small but it must be eye-catching.

You can locate the primary page CTA in the right sidebar and use a catchy color to make the CTA stand apart.

5. Too Many Forms To Fill

A landing page form should be qualified and easy to fill. If you ask for a lot of details or provide them with a messy form or multiple forms then customers can lose their patience and interest.
