Landing Page


Description

The Landing Page content type is the starting point for building pages from scratch as opposed to using a Cloneable Template (e.g., Marketing, Start). The Landing Page has the same sections available as the following Clonable Templates : Marketing and Start.

Landing Page is an appropriate content type for home pages and landing pages or pages used for marketing or promotional purposes. The sections available in Landing Page offer additional visual appeal compared to the sections available in Content Page.
