Landing pages are hugely important in both e-commerce, Saas and lead-gen based businesses. A land page differs from the rest of your site as a specific post-click (ad) interaction that promotes or targets a specific Call-to-Action (CTA). This CTA can be anything from a simple download offer (free whitepaper, free ad strategy etc.) to a more complex SaaS offering (free trial) to specific e-commerce products or promos.
