What is a landing page?
The Landing Page is the page where a lead arrives after clicking on a incentive to action (button, commercial link, e-mail, ad banner, etc.). To be able to access information about a specific offer, or download some content (ebook, white book, etc.), the lead must fill in a form which will redirect him toward an acknowledgment page.
