Do you want to create a high-converting landing page for your Facebook ads?

This platform offers an advertising audience of 2.14 billion+ people, making it more effective than other social media channels.

There is no doubt that putting a robust and well-thought idea is crucial for your ads.

However, ad creation is just half of the task!

The other half is to have a high-converting landing page that makes your marketing campaigns a resounding success.

In this post, you'll see a Facebook ad landing page example, the secret techniques they use to convert higher, and finally, we'll see how to set up a landing page for your Facebook ad within minutes.

Let’s dive in.

What is a Facebook Ads Landing Page?

A Facebook ad landing page is a dedicated page that the users land on after clicking your Facebook ad.

It’s the place where the magic happens.

Depending on the action you want your users to take on your Facebook ad landing page, they will be able to:

  • Download a resource
  • Signup for your event or product
  • View a product for a possible purchase
  • Schedule a consultation or appointment, and so much more.

For example, let’s look at an amazing example of a Facebook ad from Amy Porterfield.

 

Facebook ad from Amy Porterfield

 

 

This Facebook ad is simple and captures the attention.

It says - “Join Me In My Free 30-Day Pop Up Group”

As the user clicks on this ad, it takes them to the following Facebook ads landing page:

The landing page builds upon the idea and lets people explore more about the offer.

The offer is a free 30-day challenge and gives people the opportunity to sign up for a popup group.

Why Do You Need a Dedicated Landing Page for Facebook Ads?

Let’s say an online marketer sees your ad about the free Pay-per-click Marketing webinar that you're conducting.

The offer appeals to them and captures their attention.

But upon clicking your ad, they land on your homepage.

Ouch!

You have lost the golden opportunity to make him enter your funnel that could lead to purchasing your paid product.

That's why you need a dedicated landing page that pitches you offer, be it free or paid.

Most marketers continuously keep tweaking their ads but don't focus much on their landing page.

We recommend you don't make the same mistake.

So what are the elements of a Facebook ad landing page that smashes your conversion goals? Let's find the answer in the next section.

The Anatomy of a Facebook Ads Landing Page

In this section, we will look at all the crucial components that make a perfect landing page for a Facebook ad.

Here we’ll be taking the above example from Amy Porterfield’s Facebook ads landing page and break down the essential elements:

1. Above the Fold Section

The secret to creating your above-the-fold section on your landing page lies in your unique selling proposition (USP).

Simply answer the question - How you're different from your competitors?

Landing pages convert effectively when you tell your prospects immediately understand your offer.

For example, let's look at the landing page of Amy:

You can follow these elements to create an appealing offer:

Heading and Subheading

Keep the headline of your Facebook ad closely aligned with the headline of your landing page.

On average, 80% of people just read the headline on a landing page.

That's why the headline is a crucial element on your Facebook ad landing page.

As you can notice, Amy has made the offer:

  • consistent with her Facebook ad
  • urgency evoking because of the limited time period
  • desirable because it talks about bringing a community of like-minded people together

You’re instantly clear about the offer by reading the heading and subheading.

Hero Image

The hero image is likely the first visual element of your Facebook ad landing page that your visitors will see.

As humans process visuals 60000 times faster than text, make sure to add a consistent hero image.

As you see, the landing page has a hero image that contains an image of the popup group on an iPad along with her image.

CTA Button

A CTA button lets people take the desired action.

You may position your value proposition well but you need a CTA button to convert your prospects into leads.

You should be authoritative when directing the users to your CTA button.

This is where personalizing your CTA buttons happen to be more effective than generalized text like "Submit" or "Sign Up".

Personalized CTAs convert 202% better than the regular, untargeted CTAs.

Amy has followed the same technique and used personalized CTA buttons on the entire page.

2. Benefits of the offer

Writing the big bold benefits will help you reinforce the value your prospects will find in your offer.

Here are a few tips to highlight the benefits on your Facebook ads landing page:

  • Promise to share your wins and the learnings - As per Dr. Robert Cialdini's Authority Principle, we follow people who are successful in their field or know what they’re doing. Authority persuades people!
  • Talk about any community that you’ll be putting together - 94% of people find communities an ideal source of inspiration and new ideas.
  • Highlight any live sessions that you might be doing to help people - As per Forrester, live sessions hold the users’ attention 20 times longer than pre-recorded content.

For instance, let’s get to the benefits section of Amy’s landing page:

Amy really showcases her authority in this compelling copy for her 30-day workshop.

This is exactly how you can craft the benefits section for your Facebook ads landing page.

3. Note from the creator

People should know the concerned person behind this offer.

This section tells your prospects that you are the right person to learn from.

Highlight all the points why this offer is the perfect resource for them, and they won’t find it elsewhere.

As you can notice, Amy has once again emphasized the end goal of this offer.

She has talked about “you have nothing to lose and everything to gain” because this offer is available for free!!

This section helps you establish your credibility and how your expertise can help people achieve their goals.

4. Social proof

97% of consumers say that online reviews have an impact on their buying decisions.

Therefore, social proofs are a good addition to your Facebook ad landing page.

Your customers should be able to tell the stories of what goal you helped them achieve or how your offer turned out to be a success for them.

Since Amy is promoting the group as an affiliate, she doesn't have any social proof here.

However, we recommend you add them to your landing page.

Testimonials are small yet powerful indicators that define your trustworthiness and experience in the industry.

Pro Tip: Optimize your landing page for mobile

According to Statista, over 98% of monthly users are active on Facebook via their mobile devices.

It means most people who come to your landing page from Facebook are on their mobiles.

And they will not keep scrolling through your page if you're giving too much on it.

Therefore, keep your landing pages short and concise.

Make every element on your Facebook ad landing page optimized for mobile devices.

Step 4: Configure your email to notify leads

You can send a welcome email to your newly added subscribers right from the Funnel Builder itself.

To do that, go to your Optin Page. 

From there, enable the Lead Notifications under the Actions tab.

Lead notifications - Actions

Write the subject line and create the content of your welcome email.

Give the link for the freebie that you want to provide. Or, simply send an email giving the roadmap for the next few days on how you intend to provide your offer.

Create a welcome email to send it to your leads

Test run this email by sending it to yourself and ensuring you’re not missing anything.

We also have integration with Learndash and LifterLMS.

That means you can auto-enroll your new leads to specific courses within the Funnel Builder.

In the next section, we will look at how can you set up welcome email sequences for your new leads.

Build a Welcome Automation

Welcome emails get 4x more open rates and 5x more click-throughs than other promotional emails you send out.

When your new leads sign up for your offer, take this opportunity by interacting with them effectively.

A sequence of emails would really help you do that.

To set up your welcome sequences, you can use FunnelKit Automations (formerly Autonami) - the most powerful email marketing automation engine for WordPress.

Not just emails, you can even send SMS-based broadcasts and automated campaigns.

Set up the event trigger in FunnelKit Automations

Here the event is "Form Submits" and the form is FunnelKit (formerly WooFunnels) Optin form which we created previously.

Add the Send email action and set up your sequences with delays.

Once you’re all set, make your automation live.
