Landing pages are always hard when you start a new product. Here is a list of tools and resources that will help you create the best landing page!
First thing I need to say: "Don't code it yourself"!
You will lose time and energy - and spend too much time on the design.
Use one of the tools below to build your landing page:
Carrd is my favorite tool, it's super cheap ($19/year!), the templates are really nice looking, you can drag & drop a ton of elements and the final pages are super fast.
Yep is a nice project. It allows you to create some super basic landing pages. No fluff but it follows the best practices, try it if you want to validate an idea fast!
Super is for the Notion fans, again it comes with templates and a builder so you can build your perfect page
Learn how to write
Now that you have your design and your page up and running you need to work on the copy. That's the tough part, I won't lie to you!
The best resources I've found about copy is made by Julian:
Learn how to write and design advanced landing pages that compel people to convert. Featuring landing page examples and optimization best practices.
Once the design and the copy are done, it's time to get feedback!
Or you can be roasted by a professional, like Matt on Roast.so
Test and measure
When your page is done and online, get as many eyes balls on it. Once you have some regular traffic, it's time to test and look for improvements.
Make only a few changes at a time, but do it constantly!
