[New Template] This Mobile App Download Page Helps Visitors Envision Your Product’s Possibilities

ad-blog

When you’re offering a digital product—such as a mobile app, a piece of software, or an e-book—how do you make it feel like the kind of thing customers can’t wait to get into their hands? How do you make it feel … real?

The newest landing page template we’ve created at LeadPages has just about the best answer I’ve seen so far. In fact, I’m pretty impressed with what our designers and developers have been able to create. Take a first look at the new Mobile App Download Page, as seen on a mobile-size screen:

I’m showing this off as it’ll appear on smartphones because the page is built to promote your mobile app. But with a few tweaks this template can work beautifully for any digital giveaway or product you want to offer. Get your copy here and start playing around with it yourself:

If you’re already a LeadPages® member, you can find the Mobile App Download Page waiting inside your account. Otherwise, you’ll want to unzip the template file, make any modifications you desire to the code, and host your new page on your own website.

This template has some special features, so let’s take a closer look at some of the most important sections.

A First Fold Meant to Make Your App Irresistible

screen 1

Whenever we release a template that includes an image of a 3-D book or report cover, we tend to get one question: how can I make my own product look like that?

It’s not necessarily difficult to create an illustration of your own digital product using some simple software. But this time around, we thought we’d make it all the easier for you to present a slick, professional image of your download.

All you need is a regular flat image of your app’s home screen, your free report’s front page, or your e-book’s cover. Even a simple screenshot from your website could do the trick. Check out a few of the possibilities:

image change

By placing your image on a smartphone screen, this page invites visitors to reach out, grab the device and start exploring your app themselves.

Behind the smartphone image, you can add a solid-colored background or choose a background photo to subtly reinforce your brand and lend extra visual interest to the page. We’d recommend choosing a photo that adds depth and texture without a lot of bold elements to distract from the main event.

Finally, this section makes it easy for you to offer your app in several formats. The most current official logos for the Apple app store, Google Play, and Amazon are built into the template, and it’s simple to link them to those marketplaces.

Of course, you can easily remove any logos that aren’t relevant to you. Call-to-action buttons throughout the page let you direct traffic anywhere you like or collect leads’ information through a LeadBox™ opt-in form.

Social Proof & Clean Design

The Apple, Amazon, and Google logos all contribute a sense of authority to the top fold of the page. Just below, you can add extra authority from a different source. If your product or business has made any media appearances, include logos for those outlets here.

Next comes one of several flexible content sections that allow you to show off different aspects of your product. Rectangular image fields make it easy to swap in your own photos, and the clean lines of the default typeface and other graphic elements make your headlines and descriptions pop.

In between these content sections, you can even add a video to provide variety and multimedia insight into what you offer.

Concise & Comprehensive Features Section

Have a lot to say about your product? Don’t make visitors sift through dense paragraphs to find it. Instead, make a list of the most important features and benefits you have to offer, then give each its own mini-section.

The Mobile App Download Page is designed to make even complex products simple to understand for your visitors. In this section, icons give a quick visual guide to your information, short subheads give further direction, and description fields help readers zero in on the most compelling details.

A Final Screen That Circles Back

If visitors still haven’t purchased or opted in by the time they reach the bottom of the page, they’ll get one more push from a vivid countdown timer—a surefire way to boost your conversion rate when there’s a deadline for action. You may want to turn this timer on if you’re using this page to drum up interest for a product launch, promote beta access to a new app or program, or make a limited-time offer.

Of course, few pages convert at 100%, so the Mobile App Download Page gives the unconvinced some additional ways to stay connected with your company. A set of social sharing icons mimics the circular design of the countdown timer, which helps draw people toward your social platform links in the footer.

They’ll also find a minimalistic navigation menu, set up to link to your blog, FAQ page, and About page by default. Take a little time to think about what you’d like visitors who don’t opt in on this page to see next and use this area to send them there—maybe it’s your home page, or maybe it’s a low-commitment free offer that will help them see the value in your product.

    Hi there, thanks for the new template! But when I go to my.leadpages.net, and browse through the Template menu, I don’t see the most recent ones. While the templates are sorted by ‘Most Recent’.

    • Daphne Sidor

      Hi, Jacko—sorry for the inconvenience there. You may see the organization of our template library shift a little as we prepare for some very cool new additions (more on that in the weeks to come). In the meantime, a CTRL-F search for the template name (in this case the Mobile App Download Page) should take you right to the right spot.

      • JackoM

        Thanks 🙂

        • Taylor Wegner

      Absolutely—we give away the template files so you can do just that. Once you’ve edited the files to work for your business, you’d just upload them to your existing site (using the FTP client and hosting service you already use).

      That’s assuming you’re not a LeadPages customer—if you are, you’d just find this template in the standard library, edit it using LeadPages, download the HTML file, and then upload it to your site.

      • Henry E Howard

        Thanks for the reply not technical not sure what you referring to FTP not sure where to find.

        • Daphne Sidor

          Understood! If you have a web developer or someone else who helps you with your website, I’d pass the template files along to them, and they should know what to do. If you use a different web publishing platform, I’d use their support resources to find out how to publish HTML pages to the site you’ve built with them.
