    Brian what would you advise when using navigation menus on landing pages?

    Would you limit this to a minimum, say a home link, reducing distractions from the CTA or give the user more freedom and display a full menu?

      I would say that you should offer NO navigation menus on landing pages. Whatever a visitor needs to know to act on your offer needs to be on the landing page.

      You paid good money for the visit. Why send them off to your home page, a page notorious for low conversion rates?
