Beyond the orange call to action that attracts the eye and the motivational and original “Save my spot ” text, the fact that the offer is limited sets up an urgency that prompts a person to reserve a spot right away.
The most effective element in this page is the use of the form. The offer to sign up to win is the feature that stands out the most on the page. After that are the detailed prices which make you want to fill out the form to receive the offer. This is an effective technique. However, because of the facts that using too many different colors can be annoying to look at and that the elements could have been laid out better on the page, there is room for optimization.

In this landing page, the visual is attractive and the problematic as well as the solution are well explained. However, many elements should be optimized and others are simply missing.

Using bold characters that highlight keywords and a checklist that summarizes the key points of the report is a good tactic to sum up the content. All those elements offer a good readability. The form is well developed, although it could ask less information. It would have been interesting to add an image of the offered product.
In this PayPal landing page, there is an e-book offer. Conversion elements such as the form and the call to action are used very well. However, the image could have been larger and positioned better on the page. As for the description of the key points of the e-book, they could have been highlighted a bit more.
This page is a very good example of an optimal landing page. First, the background image has a very nice effect and brings out the other elements of the page, especially the title, the form and the call to action. The incentive nature of the title shows that time isn’t an issue since it is simple and fast to install the solution.
Personally, I really like this Shopify landing page. The slogan catches the reader’s attention and prompts him or her to click on the very distinguishable action button. The design is sleek and the colors are well chosen. Simple, concise and effective!
Here is another Shopify landing page, which has some similarities with the previous one: the style is sleek, the title is catchy and highlighted, and the call to action is appealing with its green color. The only thing they ask for is an email address in order to test the application. On the other hand, it might have been better to remove external links, like the blog, to ensure that the visitor stays focused on the offer rather than being tempted to navigate to other pages.
The image of the Uber landing page was well selected since it gives a human side to the company and catches the eye. The form covering a section of the image stands out. The design of this page was successfully done.
