You’re going to struggle to convert anybody if your landing pages aren’t configured properly. For then you might get traffic, but they won’t end up buying your product. And in that case you’re wasting time, money and effort.
For that reason, it’s important to think about optimizing your landing pages. The great news is that there are tons of tools out there to help you do exactly that. To help you sort through them and get to grips with what the possibilities, here I’m going to cover several that can help you out.

A lot of design functionality, such as Parallax scrolling – you know, where the background doesn’t move at the same speed as the foreground?
Script management functionality which will make it a simple matter of cutting and pasting to add such content as Google Analytics.
Allows you to create custom SSL certificates to offer your users an extra level of protection and thereby boost the security credentials of your site.
Real time A/B testing to figure out what works and what does not.
