The Simplest Way to Make a Landing Page Without a Website
Establishing a digital presence is crucial for any business trying to reach a wider audience. However, if you’re just starting out and don’t have a website yet, discover how to build a standalone landing page that promotes your brand, captures leads & boosts conversions.
Websites have long been the default solution for establishing a digital presence. However, it may surprise you that out of the two billion websites currently on the internet, only 400 million are active. Mainly because building and maintaining a website can be a challenging and resource-draining endeavor.
Landing pages are a simpler and more cost-effective way to take your business online—allowing you to showcase your products, services, or promotions in a focused and more impactful way.
But can you build a landing page without a website? The answer is a resounding yes.
Let’s look at how you can use Beaconstac’s Linkpage feature to create high-converting landing pages that captivate your audience, promote your products, and generate leads—without a website.

Landing page best practices to keep in mind
To make the most out of your landing page, here are some best practices to follow:
1. Customize your page to represent your brand
Personalize your landing page by incorporating brand elements such as logos, colors, and fonts. This helps create a cohesive and consistent brand experience for your visitors.
2. Add clear CTAs to promote action
Clearly define the purpose of your landing page and include compelling call-to-action (CTA) buttons or links. Make them stand out and guide visitors toward the desired action, whether making a purchase, filling out a form, or signing up for a newsletter.
3. Actively promote your landing page
Don’t just create a landing page and wait for visitors to find it. Actively promote it through various channels such as social media, email marketing, paid advertising, and collaborations with influencers or partners.
4. Track to optimize performance
Track metrics such as page views, conversion rates, bounce rates, and user engagement. Use this data to identify areas of improvement and optimize your landing page for better results.

Frequently asked questions
1. What is the difference between a landing page and a website?
A landing page is a single-page entity with a focused purpose, designed to capture your visitors’ attention and drive them toward a specific action. It eliminates distractions and presents a concise message.
In contrast, a website typically consists of multiple pages and navigation menus, providing a broader range of information and functionality.
2. What is a landing page used for?
A landing page is used to achieve specific goals, such as promoting a product, generating leads, or driving conversions.
It serves as a virtual gateway, delivering a focused message that resonates with the target audience and encourages them to take a desired action.
3. Can a landing page act as a website?
While a landing page and a website serve different purposes, a landing page can act as a standalone web presence for specific campaigns or promotions.
It provides a concentrated and impactful way to showcase products, services, or offers without the need for a complete website infrastructure.
4. Can you build a landing page without a website?
Yes, it is possible to build a landing page without a website. It is commonly assumed that a landing page, which is often a single page with a specific purpose, is built within the framework of a complete website.
However, with the emergence of standalone landing page builders and platforms, it has become evident that a website is optional for creating a landing page.

No, when using Beaconstac’s platform, you don’t need to buy hosting or a domain.
