A landing page is a custom-designed webpage that your customers or leads reach after they complete actions like filling out a Lead Form, submitting an Appointment Schedule request or completing a Scope of Appointment form. Its purpose is to provide specific information or a follow-up action related to the form they just submitted.

There are three main components of the email template creator.
- Content blocks where you add your text, images and more.
- Rows where you set up the layout of the template.
- Settings where you can customize the size, background and more.
Think of the landing page like a puzzle. You take a bunch of pieces or blocks and put them together to form a whole picture. The only difference is, you have different types of content blocks to choose from. Each has a specific purpose according to your needs. If you want to include an image, for example, add the IMAGE block. For text, use the PARAGRAPH block.
Types of content blocks:
- Title: Add a title or a header to your landing page.
- Paragraph: Add your message including Merge Tags for personalization, like Dear #FIRSTNAME#.
- List: Add ordered (bulleted) and unordered (numbered) lists.
- Image: Upload and insert images (.jpg or .png only).
- Button: Add a clickable button for call-to-actions, such as “Download” or “Click for Link”.
- Divider: Divide your blocks with a solid line.
- Spacer: Add whitespace to break up your blocks.
- Social: Link to your social media accounts.
- Icons: Add your business logo or other icons.
When building a landing page, it’s important to add rows for your content blocks. These rows serve as the scaffolding of your landing page, shaping its overall layout and structure.
The template structure is important to keep in mind when designing a landing page because it affects how it renders in different devices, from computers to smartphones and tablets.
To further customize and personalize your landing page, check out the settings. Here, you can adjust various elements to your preferences. This includes the content area width, content area alignment, background color, content area background color, background image, default font, and link color.
Pay special attention to the content area width and the content area alignment.
Content area width determines how the email will expand to render and display on devices. By default, the content area width for all templates starts at 675px for editing purposes. After you’re done building your template, you will want to maximize the width to 900px for the best viewing experience across all devices.
Content area alignment determines how the email content is displayed. Content is usually center-aligned for landing pages.
If you make any changes, remember to save or your changes will be lost.
If you have a landing page, you can use it with Appointment Schedules and Scope of Appointments (SOA).
