Every month, we collect 10 landing pages worth learning from. As of last month, many of those lessons are backed up by objectively high conversion rates, too. In this post, I’ll be specifically calling out some of the lessons our last batch of the best landing pages of the year have to teach, and noting which ones turned up at the top of our highest-converting pages report.

Of course, sometimes the best way to learn is by following closely in another marketer’s footsteps. To that end, we’re also giving away a bundle of four of the landing page templates you see in this post. Click below for your free template pack, which includes:
