Videos can be an even better option than Images if done right. Make sure to use high-quality videos with good audio. Instapage currently supports video links from YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook videos and Wistia.

Buttons

By clicking on the Button icon you'll generate a preset Call-to-Action (CTA) Button that will appear on your landing page. The button looks like this: 

If you're designing a "Click-Through" Landing Page then you should be focusing on how to make your CTA Button stand out. A Landing Page button if used should be the primary conversion point and therefore should be placed above the fold and at least one other spot within your page. The button is editable in a few different ways:

Maps

By clicking on the Map Button you'll generate a preset Map that will appear on your landing page. The Map looks like this: 

Maps are great if you're designing a landing page for a small business or event.  

Countdown Timer

This feature helps you add a countdown timer to your page. To customize it for your use, click on the countdown timer, and select “Edit”.

This will give you additional design options (changing colors and the position of labels), and functionality settings (the date to countdown to, and the language for the labels).

Countdown timers are a great way to create time-based offers, events, and create scarcity. The scarcity aspect is important because as Neil Patel tells Marketing Land, the "clock is the symbol of passing time... If you remind users that time is passing — that the clock is ticking — it raises the urgency level and compels action."

And since your average visitor has an attention span of about 8 seconds, it's imperative you capitalize on those few seconds to increase leads, signups, and sales.

Social Buttons

By clicking on the Social Button you'll generate a preset Social Widget that will appear on your landing page. The widget looks like this: 

Instapage uses the Page Title and Description to auto generate the social sharing content it passes to these social networks. You can change the size/layout of the widget and remove networks you don't want.
