    Thank you for sharing this, I really agree with keeping landing pages shorter, a lot of sales page are very long... you never want to bore readers into purchasing your product, It's best to keep it short and enough to motivate them into taking action with a good CTAs.

    On the other hand, I don't agree with making hyperlinks red.
    because users are used to seeing them in blue color, so they feel safe while clicking on them, red links look weird and unusual.

    I also agree about keeping it shorter. Most people are skimmers and will not read a lot of content.

    Great tips dansilvestre, I would have to agree that keeping the landing page page clean and modern. Sometimes long landing pages work well, if you can have good content that keeps the customers intrigued.

    I find that having a contact form on every page will result in more email submissions. I usually put my email form on the right side of the page.
