I'm curious about this for quite some time.
Is a landing page still the best or a good way to introduce new users to your products/your page or attract new users/customers?
I'm curios if it still the common way or if it would be better to have some kind of guided tour for users who visit the page for the first time and click on a button for this guidance.
Given the example PluralSight, which is a bit like the thing which is currently in planning.
A simple landing page is a bit to unclear for a user. The user just see a small portion of the page. If you like to give him more information, you need to provide many information on one page. This will bloat the page and will decrease the users overview of the page. If you provide many links to further information, the landing page is a bit like a second home/start page. If a user provide much information on the landing page, it would be wiser to provide those information just on the home/start page itself and leave the landing page out.
What do you think? Is a landing page still a good way for something like the example?
