As an app developer, most of your design and development effort probably goes into your app – but you know you need a web presence to both publicize and legitimize your offerings. Luckily, there are easy options to quickly and easily create a professional-looking, useful, yet simple app website to generate interest and collect customer contacts right away.
We’ve collected some of the best and easiest options for creating simple websites and landing pages that work well with embedded video – because for apps in particular, you want your demo video front and center! A demo video gives potential users the opportunity to see an app in action and learn more about its features and functions, and when you’re opting for a simple website, putting the focus on video is far more engaging than a wall of text.
No list of website and landing page platforms would be complete without including Leadpages. It’s by far the most well-known, and for a good reason: it has hundreds of ready-to-use templates across multiple categories and industries with a proven track record. Leadpages has been used by thousands of companies both large and small with great success. To find the best templates for a video-focused website, simply search for “video” on their Templates page.
It’s no surprise that Leadpages’ success has led to a number of other platforms offering similar features and services. GetResponse is one of the best of them, offering multiple site templates (as with Leadpages, some are designed specifically for embedded video), social media integration, and more. Other excellent platforms are Wix and Tilda, and both offer numerous templates just like Leadpages and GetResponse.
WordPress users aren’t left in the cold when it comes to simple yet effective design. There are multiple options for plugins that will allow you to create great app landing pages as part of your existing WordPress site, and many of these plugins also make it easy for you to design and edit your entire site as well. Thrive Themes, Visual Composer, and Divi Builder are all good WYSIWYG tools for design, while Optimize Press is a tool specifically for creating landing and sales pages using WordPress.
WordPress experts who are looking to add landing page functionality can find dozens of excellent templates on both ThemeForest and Template Monster. And if you’re just at the start of your app’s landing page/website journey, Seedprod is the tool you want for creating a quick “coming soon” website that allows you to show off your app videos and also collect user Emails.
Whether you already have an app website or not, and whether you have an app ready for deployment or are still in the development phase, there are lots of easy ways you can create a fantastic landing page that will help you start to build excitement and generate sales.
