Having the marketing knowledge to create a landing page is one thing, but having to create your own landing page is another.
Indeed, creating a landing page often requires advanced technical knowledge to be able to set up specific marketing elements on your page.
Even if you use a CMS such as Shopify, you will probably have to add an element from custom HTML code since it will not necessarily exist in Shopify or your theme.
When you want to obtain a landing page that meets your expectations, you will therefore have to use code, unless you are using a Shopify application specializing in the creation of landing pages.
These apps allow you to create custom landing pages from elements for Shopify designed specifically for creating landing pages.
Find out in this article which applications can be used for your landing page and how you can use them.
