What is the difference between a website and a landing page?

Last updated December 6th, 2023 00:26

When creating a website, whether on WordPress or using other systems, you can choose several strategies to target your customers or users. One of the strategies is how the page will look and what purpose it will primarily serve. Essentially, the page can be divided into the aforementioned landing page or a classic website. In this article, we will discuss, what is the difference between a website and a landing page, specifically in terms of their basic distinguishing features.

A website is designed with the assumption that the reader will collect information gradually. This is done through clicks on sub-pages with narrower focus. Typically, the main page structure includes links to other topics. A website usually has a menu containing links like “contact,” “pricing,” or “about us.”

As the reader navigates the website, they obtain information about the owner or company, products, philosophy, or pricing. A website does not aim at the call to action (CTA). This is the main difference between a website and a landing page.

CTA (Call To Action) is precisely the primary purpose of a landing page. The primary goal of websites is to provide basic information to help users understand who you are, what you do, and how they can contact you.

Landing Page

As mentioned earlier, a landing page is designed with a strong focus on conversion rates and CTA. It is built in such a way as to encourage users to take a specific action, such as placing an order, signing up for a newsletter, or taking other actions.

Compared to a regular website, a landing page is usually focused directly on a specific product, describing it and targeting the customer or user to make a purchase or order.

A landing page is also heavily focused on the conversion rate. It measures, for example, how many users came to the page from social media. And, also, how many of them completed an order, registered, or purchased the product. The landing page is thus more marketing-oriented.

In advertising campaigns, a regular website and a landing page can complement each other perfectly. On one hand, you have a classic website with information about your company, its products, and contact details for you or your customer support. On the other hand, for promoting a specific product on social media, a landing page is more suitable. When users see a paid advertisement on social media and click on it, they will be taken to the landing page for that particular product. Here, it will be important to convince them that your product is the key for them.

In summary, this is the difference between a traditional website and a landing page. If you want to use landing pages on your website, it is recommended to also focus on tracking conversion rates. This means measuring how effective such a page is in relation to the number of users who land on it. This can be done through tools such as Google Analytics and others. But more on that another time.
