Are you considering making a landing page without navigation?

Navigation menus give website visitors control over which page on your website they visit. However, landing pages have one goal, so removing the navigation menu can increase your conversion rates.

This article will show you how to make a landing page without navigation and explain why including navigation can hurt your conversion goals.

Are Landing Pages Still Relevant?

Landing pages are most definitely still relevant in digital marketing. Good landing pages can drive traffic, improve your website’s search engine optimization (SEO), and increase brand awareness.

Landing pages direct potential customers to a specific product, service, or offer and encourage them to act. It’s your opportunity to build trust, improve conversions and grow your customer base.

In fact, having 10-12 landing pages can increase leads by 55%.

Creating more landing pages allows you to segment your traffic and build specific pages for different types of customers.

If you’re looking to improve a visitor’s chances of converting, should your landing page include navigation links? We tackle that question next.

Should a Landing Page Have Navigation?

First, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all answer on whether to include navigation links on your pages. The choice depends on your business needs and goals.

However, removing your landing page’s navigation bar is a good choice if you want your target audience to focus on one call-to-action. Allow us to explain why.

When you have no links on your landing page besides your call-to-action (CTA), visitors won’t get distracted from what you want them to do. Navigation links distract attention from that goal.

Moreover, if you’re paying for landing page traffic with a PPC ad campaign, for example, it can cost you money. You pay for each click-through to your landing page, and if visitors don’t convert, you won’t get a return on your investment (ROI).

Essentially, making a landing page without navigation is best to increase conversions and ROI. In this example, OptinMonster reduced cost per acquisition significantly for their PPC campaign with a navigation-free landing page.

Now let’s look at the page footer area, which often includes navigation links you don’t wish to include. Our page has social media profile links we want to remove from this design.

Hover over the social icons block and click the trashcan icon to remove it.

Landing Page Without Navigation FAQs

What is a landing page without navigation?

A landing page without navigation refers to a web page that is specifically designed to capture the attention of visitors and encourage them to take a specific action, such as making a purchase, subscribing to a newsletter, or filling out a form. Unlike a typical website with multiple links and navigation menus, a landing page without navigation focuses solely on guiding visitors toward a single goal.

What elements should I include on a landing page without navigation?

A landing page without navigation should include essential elements such as a compelling headline, a concise and persuasive copy, relevant images or videos, a prominent call-to-action button, and a form or any other means to capture visitor information. Additionally, it’s important to include trust indicators like testimonials or security badges to instill confidence in the visitors.

Should I completely remove all links and navigation from my landing page?

Generally, it is recommended to remove external links and unnecessary navigation from a landing page without navigation. The goal is to keep visitors focused on the desired action, minimizing distractions that could lead them away from the page.

However, it may be necessary to include essential links, such as a privacy policy or terms of service, if required by regulations or to establish trust.

Can I add a navigation menu later if needed?

While it is generally recommended to keep a landing page without navigation focused on a single goal, you can add a navigation menu later if necessary. However, it’s important to carefully consider the impact it may have on conversions and user experience.

A navigation menu might introduce distractions and dilute the primary call-to-action, so assess whether the benefits outweigh the potential drawbacks before making any changes.
