    Hello,
    I am brand new to internet marketing and I am looking for some pointers on how to make my landing page look the best.

    Here is 2 themes. I made the second theme after a few of my friends said that the original one looked to spamy.

    Theme 1:
    [​IMG]
    Theme 2:
    [​IMG]

    What one is the best? What one would you send paid traffic to?
    What should I change to either one of them to fix it, before I send some traffic to it.

    Thanks to whomever helps me answer these questions.

    If i had to pick I would go with the second one. Also you might want to add some fake comments and a few fake facebook "likes" make it look like its something popular and that many people have found it useful in the past. From my experience people eat that stuff up.

    i would also pick the second one, looks cleaner and less of a typical landing page with that red text and all.

    I agree the 1st one is more "realistic"

    It's like your "friend" showing you what he did
    then the second which is more "professional" looking for sure

    I guess it's one way for one person, and the other for another
    if you do both you've captured both market segments


    hali~!:)

    PS; I feel a stronger "call to action" from the 1st one!

    Most definitely the one with the red text. No question. Split-test headlines.

    Forget about everyone's opinions... they are not looking at the pages from the same perspective as your users. When you do this long enough you'll learn that preferences and opinions don't put money in your bank account and are just barely this side of worthless.

    People can be (and will be) wrong. But results never lie.

    One of the pages will convert better than the other... but the only way to know is to follows WizGizmo's advice and split test. Do *not* rely on opinions and preferences. The results are *all* that matter.

    Forget what you know or what you think you know.

    Get a copy of John Carltons "Kick Ass Copywriting Secrets of a Marketing Rebel"

    It is just jam packed with stuff that WILL help you.

    Stuff like psychological triggers that get people to take action.

    For example why they should sign up at "get paid to do surveys" site!

    They will appeal to different demographics. Split test them. Then you'll know what's right for yours.

    My gut feeling is that the first one would convert better although you'd have to test. Who cares if people think it's "spammy," the only thing that counts is the $$$ you make.

    The second one doesn't have nearly enough info above the fold - the top visible screen would mostly be taken up with the fairly meaningless image.

    I would go with the first one. It has a much clear "call to action" in comparison with the second one.

    They both look UGLY.

    It seems like 1990's website themes.
