What’s New Getting Started Building Integrating Publishing

Build a landing page

Last Updated

NOTE: We recommend the Drag & Drop Builder over the Standard (Legacy) Builder, as it offers far more customization and our newest features. For that reason, this article will focus on that builder.
 

Choose a template

To get started, you’ll need to begin with a template. Under the Landing Pages tab, there's blue button that says, "Create New Landing Page." This button will tailor your template based on your goal for that page. You can then customize the template with your brand colors and copy etc.

We also have a template gallery. Here’s how to choose a template from the template gallery:

  1. Navigate to the Landing Pages tab on your account dashboard and click the View All Templates button.
  2. Select a type of template from the drop-down on the left, search for a template, or simply browse through our collection.
  3. Hover over any template’s thumbnail, click View to preview, then Use this Template.
  4. Name your page, then click Start Building

To learn more about choosing a template, check out our article: The Different Types of Landing Page Templates.

Edit your page’s content

Every template includes pre-built sections with placeholder widgets. You can edit, rearrange, delete, and add new content to customize your page.

Our builder automatically saves changes as you go, so you don’t need to worry about losing any work. If you make a mistake, there are plenty of options to undo your edits.

Edit widgets

Widgets hold all the content on your page—from headings to images to buttons. Click on any widget to access its settings and edit its content.

NOTE: Many widgets can contain text, including buttons, headings, and text widgets. Click on any placeholder text and start typing to replace it with your own copy.

Each widget also provides various customization and styling options. You can learn more about each widget’s options here: Drag & Drop Widgets.

Other customization options

Each Drag & Drop template is organized into distinct sections, columns, and rows—each of which you can customize to further edit your page.

We have in-depth resources you can check out to learn more here:

Set up a form

You’ll need at least one form widget in order to collect opt-ins on your page. Most templates include an opt-in form by default, normally within an on-page pop-up. Here’s how to find and adjust your page’s form:

Form settings

  1. Look for a call to action (usually a button). Keep in mind that many templates include several calls to action.
  2. Hover over your call to action and click Edit Pop-Up (or click your call to action, then the link icon).
  3. Once you open the pop-up, hover over the form and click Edit Integrations (or click anywhere on the form to open its settings).
  4. Navigate through the three tabs, INTEGRATIONS, FIELDS, and ACTIONS, to adjust your form’s settings. When you’re finished, click Save & Close.

TIP: Multiple calls to action can link to the same pop-up, so any changes you make can affect multiple button or text links.

NOTE: Form settings contain a lot of power—you’ll use the form widget options to set up everything from your integrations to lead magnet delivery options.

Attaching a lead magnet

You can incentivize visitors to opt in to your page by offering a lead magnet. Learn how to set up a lead magnet here.

Thank you page settings

By default, visitors who submit a form on your landing page will get directed to a generic thank you page. We recommend creating a custom thank you page to use with your opt-in page. Here are details on setting up a custom thank you page.

Publish your page

Before publishing your page, click the Preview button to see it in action—you can even make sure your page looks good on mobile devices.

When you’re satisfied, click Publish to go live! Each page you publish will get its own URL at your Leadpages Domain (hosted on our servers). Using that URL is the quickest way to share your page—but you can also publish your page to your own server, WordPress site, or take out a Facebook & Instagram Ad.

To learn more about publishing, check out: Publishing Your Landing Page.

Test your page

We always recommend submitting a test before sending your page out into the world. We've got a video here demonstrating how best to test your page.
