Landing Pages vs. Web Forms

You may wonder if you should use a landing page or a web form for you particular lead capture activity. Generally speaking, a "Landing Page" or "Squeeze Page" is a single-page website with a very clear call to action. The page copy and page design exists to do one thing - establish a value proposition that entices the visitor to trade their contact information with your offer. It's a specialty, one-off web page that is not part of a larger website. It is supposed to be distraction-free and focus only on the offer.

A web form is more flexible than a landing page because a web developer can integrate it more seamlessly into your website. It can be used as your "Contact Us" form on your website, your newsletter sign up form, etc... It can be adapted to more diverse applications than just a landing page.

There are other technical differences between the two that may help you decide which one to use in your marketing strategy:
