Let’s say you have a very new and growing website, what is the best way to make an empty verification page? These pages are needed for websites that require the user to prove his or her identity before allowing him to proceed. This verification page should be free of any kind of advertisement, or you risk losing money from people who think they are going to get “free stuff” when in reality they are going to pay for it.
What I mean by that is, make sure that your landing page does not allow you to leave your visitor wondering how will he/she know if they can access the website or not. You don’t want them leaving your page, wondering what they are going to find on the other side of it.
There are a few different ways to make a page like this. There are some legit methods, and there are also some that are just a little bit shady. In order to avoid getting scammed, here are a few things to look for:
Empty Verification Page – Don’t use “empty” verifications when writing your site copy. This is really annoying. Whenever you see the word “empty” in your website copy, make sure that it’s the only time you see it in your content. With the right background color, you can make a page really stand out.
Link Boxes: Do you know that the majority of people who get the link box form Facebook and LinkedIn will never use the link box again? Even if they did, these people are probably already listed on someone else’s profile. You would be better off if you don’t give them a way to do that!
Use of Images: Use your graphics sparingly and strategically. Make sure that you use it as a compliment to your text. If you are using a photo of the logo, make sure it is not the focal point of the entire page.
HTML Comments: This is another one of those things that the majority of people that use this method will never use again. Don’t make the mistake of using too many comments to your website. It might look cool and people will like it, but using too many comments on a website can really ruin it.
An Empty Verification Page should be minimalistic and very clean. There is no sense in having to waste the time searching for things.
