Why Use Ontrapages?
Ontrapages is Ontraport's landing page solution. It comes built in with every Ontraport account so if you're an Ontraport user there's really no need for external software like LeadPages or ClickFunnels.
If you're not an Ontraport user, you can grab a free Ontrapages account and give them a try. (Yes, it's actually free, no credit card required… just don't blame me if you fall in love and want to go all the way with Ontraport 😉 )
NOTE: Ontraport integrates with both LeadPages and ClickFunnels, as well as most other landing page software so you can use those services alongside Ontraport if you want to.
What's awesome about using Ontraport's in-house landing pages is their ultra-tight integration with your entire system… leads that come in through an Ontraport page can be tracked based on their behavior, allowing you to run automated campaigns (email, SMS text, or postcard) based on visits to your site and trigger cart abandon sequences to recover lost sales.
This can be accomplished with some external integrations, but it requires some knowledge of HTML and it's definitely not as reliable and requires an extra step on every single page you create. Not ideal and easy to forget when you're flying by the seat of your pants like most of us in digital marketing 😉
Take Advantage of Ontraport's Personal URL (PURL) System
PURLs are customized links that include each prospect's name, and they're proven to increase clicks and engagement. Better yet, using PURLs allows us to positively identify each visitor so you can personalize the pages they visit after the click.
These can help make a memorable impact with your marketing by customizing your emails, landing pages, postcards, and SMS messages to each specific recipient with personalized URLs (PURLs).
All of this adds up to a powerful system personalizes the experience and helps you communicate even better with your subscribers… a big plus in my books!

Ontraport Landing Pages
What is a landing page and why are they important for your business
A landing page is an essential component of any successful online business. It is a web-based tool that allows you to create web pages with simple links, forms, and other features that help customers interact with your business' site quickly and efficiently. It also serves as a gateway for visitors to learn more about your company, products, and services.
By creating an effective landing page, businesses can increase customer engagement and loyalty, helping them convert more leads into paying customers. Landing pages are also valuable for retaining customers with targeted offers or incentives. This process helps to build a personal relationship between the customer and the company as well as increase brand visibility.
For example, if created strategically, a landing page can direct readers not just to make a purchase but also to sign up for email newsletters or join a community forum dedicated to discussing the business's products and services. By adopting landing pages into your marketing strategy, you will be able to effectively reach current and potential customers while at the same time leveraging advanced SEO tactics that promote your business organically online.

Start by understanding what you want visitors to do when they land on your page – make this action obvious with a single call-to-action button or signup form. Make sure the copy is concise and persuasive, and only include enough information to get someone interested without cluttering up the page.
Good visuals are also essential; images create visual interest and help convey your message quickly – I recommend Canva for your graphics.

By following these tips, you can create high-converting landing pages using Ontraport.
