Every time a prospect goes over your website you get to collect web analytic data based on how they interact with your site. You need to think about how they landed on your website. Some of the prospects get there by tracking campaigns and channels. Others are directed to your page using search engines, capture the keyword that got them to your brand and the first page they opened. This information will help you understand their interests and intentions.
With landing pages you should be able to apply context to a lead. The rules that apply to context in websites and blogs are the same ones that apply in landing pages. You can start by targeting images; you can increase efficiency by targeting all the content on the landing page.
When it comes to the marketing funnel forms are an effective way of gaining context about leads. When a prospect takes time to fill your form it means that you have impacted them positively. Dynamic forms are the tool of choice; they use progressive profiling to ensure that your questions are not repetitive. Progressive profiling looks at the information you have gathered on a certain lead before setting questions that will offer you additional information. This feature ensures that you accumulate valuable information about a lead over a period of time.
