Recipe for your more effective fundraising landing page

How many would-be donors arrive at your landing page, but leave without making a donation?

Too many? I thought so.

Here’s some help from the Daily Egg, at How to Build a Landing Page that Converts: 12 Must-Have Features:


  1. Killer Headline
  2. Persuasive Subheadline
  3. Pictures
  4. An Explanation
  5. Value Proposition or Benefits
  6. Logical Flow
  7. Something about Pain
  8. Something about Pleasure
  9. Trustworthy Testimonials
  10. Methods of Contact
  11. A Guarantee
  12. Powerful Call to Action

(Read the Daily Egg post: There are tons of examples.)

These are aimed at a commercial sales landing page — but every one of these elements could be on a fundraising page. And they’d make the page stronger.
