searchenginejournal.com – Web marketers talk a lot about how to build the perfect landing pages. Do any search and you’ll find dozens, if not hundreds of articles on how to build landing pages that kick butt. You will undoubtedly find some great nuggets of information and wisdom.
But too often, these articles focus on building specific landing pages for a specific task. That’s great, but what’s missing is the reality that you don’t need to build new landing pages for your website. Rather, you need to make sure that every page on your site is a landing page.

Now, thanks to the Internet, marketing automation, and marketing analytics solutions, we can measure nearly everything in marketing, tracing our impact all the way down to influence on revenue and ROI. This ability to measure marketing’s performance and receive instant feedback on what works has revolutionized marketing.

Why Traffic Matters
Most landing page tests are run under the assumption that your landing page is getting a steady stream of relevant, interested traffic.

About five minutes in, I realised that I didn’t have the foggiest idea what the author was talking about. Digital media constantly generates new jargon and theory, which creates a veil of confusion.
Every time there’s an innovation or a change to something digital, we’re reminded that there are new things happening that we don’t yet understand. We feel as if we need to unlearn everything we know and start again.
Web design is constantly evolving, especially in the ecommerce arena where most retail companies heavily rely on online sales as their major revenue source. The need to constantly innovate, adapt and stay on top of the most recent web design and online marketing trends is what makes the ecommerce space so fierce and competitive. The top preforming ecommerce sites for 2016 will be the ones that take advantage of the latest online trends, including the rapidly growing mobile sales market (mCommerce).
