This is a special seminar on how to create a video landing page using Thesis Theme 2.2 and Agility Skin 3. Agility has some special tools that make this process very easy that other skins don’t have.

We create a landing page based on this Formstack article, The Anatomy of a Perfect Landing Page. This article has a very good description of a landing page and the things that should go into a landing page. It also has some good advice so I encourage anyone who’s creating a landing page to take a look at this. It does a good job of talking about what you should put on a landing page.

This seminar is not about the content of the landing page rather it’s about the mechanics of creating it. A landing page is really comprised of both its content and its layout and here we focus on the layout.
