If you are a social media influencer, a small-business owner, or even a beginner, chances are you’ve felt the need to create landing pages for any new ideas within minutes. That’s when you need a landing page builder that lets you create and publish landing pages without typing a single line of code. That’s why we’ve built Linkpage at Beaconstac. Creating Linkpages is super easy, too, thanks to its builder’s widgets.
What’s a widget?
Have you ever tried to change the look of your phone’s wallpaper and seen a bunch of clocks, calendars, app shortcuts, or the weather display?
They are called widgets. These tiny software applications are easy to access, simple to use, and quick to set up. Many of us love using them to access important information on our phones.
However, widgets are not only limited to phones. They play a significant role in simplifying any human-computer interfaces.
What are Linkpage widgets, and how can they help you?
Generally, widgets can be as rudimentary as a button or a check box; or slightly more sophisticated, like a text tool or a unit converter.
While building Linkpage’s builder tool, we wanted to use the power of widgets to make landing page creation a smooth experience. If you frequently spend a lot of time creating landing pages and microsites, you’ll love using Linkpage’s intuitive and easy-to-use widgets. You can watch your page come alive as Linkpage’s no-code builder lets you preview your page while you add content through its widgets.
Use them to:
We know that great copy is key to building convincing landing pages. While content is vital, making it look easy to the eyes is also essential. Lucky for you, altering the size, color, alignment, and style of text is easy with Linkpage’s Text widget.
Add an image gallery
Since our brains process and remember visual elements much more than text, the first thing a potential customer sees on your Linkpage is the images. Sometimes, they’re all that’s standing between your customer bouncing off or choosing to spend more time on your page. With ‘Image Gallery', Linkpages lets you add pictures to your landing page in grid and carousel formats.
Embed a video
If images aren’t enough to impress your audience, you can simply insert YouTube or Wistia links to public videos with Linkpages’ Embed Video widget. You can also mute or auto-play these videos based on how you want them to play on your Linkpages.
Connect social media links
Creating convertible landing pages means hyper-focused on delivering the right message to your reader. For everything else, there are social media. Linkpages’ Social Links widget lets you add social media buttons to your Linkpages. It’s a great way to let your viewers quickly navigate to your social media pages that tell them more about your company’s products or services.
Attach a Form
Attaching a Form to your page is an excellent solution if your landing page needs to collect visitor contact details, conduct a survey, or track a poll. With Linkpages’ Form widget, you can easily attach a customized and trackable Form (made within Beaconstac) to your landing page.
Create separate content blocks
You can also add a separator between your content blocks to make a more substantial visual impact on your readers. Use the Separator widget to insert a horizontal line divider and create a visually clear separation between different types of content on your page.
Direct your audience to another landing page
Maybe you’re launching multiple landing pages for a campaign, or you simply want to track the performance of all your landing pages on a single dashboard. We’ve made it easy to create a master landing page of all your landing pages with Linkpages.
Add a Linkpage to your Linkpages
If you can code, you could manually create your beautiful landing page to link to your Linkpage. Or, you simply create another Linkpage to attach to an existing Linkpage with this widget.
☝️ Remember: Planning is critical. Linkpages’ widgets take the hard work out of creating beautiful landing pages. However, in today’s attention-deficit world, you must consider the content you add to your Linkpages. By placing too many external links on your Linkpage, you risk lowering your conversion rate by distracting readers from becoming your customers.
