Today it’s our third lesson and we are going to decide about the landing page layout. However, before starting to build a website, you need to decide on its concept. Do you want a minimalistic landing page only equipped with the basic blocks without tones of tiresome text? Or maybe you are dreaming to create a well-crafted Gutenberg landing page with an essential piece of information.
Let’s come with the idea of the landing page structure. In our Gutenberg course, we will create a stylish and minimalistic landing page layout, which will perfectly suit any purpose, whether you want to showcase your services, create a portfolio, collect data or make a charity platform.
Planning a Gutenberg landing page layout
No matter how stylish and creative your blocks are, if they don’t serve for satisfying visitor’s interest. The landing page layout usually contains a few basic sections and blocks. Let’s take a look at them:
- Welcome hero section;
- About block;
- Services block;
- Reviews and testimonials block;
- Get in touch block;
- CTA block.
Furthermore, we will also create a navigation menu with the anchors which will direct you to a certain part of the Gutenberg landing page.
Building a draft of the Gutenberg landing page
When you decided on the topic of your website, let’s move on to our next step. We will create a draft of the page with all the blocks, put them in the right places and design its interface in our following tutorials. Let’s start with a Welcome hero section.
In this tutorial, we are going to create a website for startupers. So let’s call the page “Startuper”.
Create a heading for the welcome section and add a few paragraphs if you want to. Don’t forget to make all the elements of the section nested. We will also add a spacer after each block to make the content more neat and clear.
As a next step, let’s create About Us block, which will be introduced by the section with three columns. They will contain a picture with a text over it.
Let’s move on to the Services block! Now create a group with a heading, three columns, which will contain am image and three paragraphs.
To build a Testimonials block, you need to find the “Pullquote” block among the ones, that the Gutenberg editor provides. Then put the client’s review directly in the block. We’ll do a customization a little later.
We’ve almost done! Now let’s make a draft of the Get in Touch block. The minimalistic combination of heading, an engaging paragraph, and e-mail address will conquer the hearts of your clients.
As the last step, we will create a CTA block. We will keep it simple and add an e-mail address over the image.
