The sole reason for creating Landing pages is getting website visitors to convert to the next stage in the buying journey. You need to come up with a definite goal of what it is that you would want some to see as soon as they click on your domain name. Landing pages are unique depending on the industry that one is in, one standard thing though it has to be captivating.
Designing a successful landing page requires some detailed planning and creative testing.

What is it that you want the visitors to come to your website to be able to view? Do you want them to download something? Do you want them to fill out a form? Newsletter sign-up? Once you determine what it is, you want them to do then you are off to a great start
- Know your Competitors
Really its three questions: Who am I competing against, how are they succeeding, and how can I copy their success? Once you are able to answer the above questions, you can borrow ideas from them, and improve on what they are doing to have an edge over them
