What if I already have a site?

Can I use a Strikingly site as a landing page alongside my existing site?


Launching newpage.yourdomain.com with Strikingly

Strikingly's one page design is a great way to add landing pages to your existing site. You can build specific landing pages for Adwords, events, new products or services, hiring, and more. This empowers team members to launch campaigns quickly and independently.

Then, you can hook up your new page to a subdomain such as mysubdomain.mybusiness.com. A few key examples are about.mybusiness.com, jobs.mybusiness.com, conference.mybusiness.com, and product.mybusiness.com.

To connect your Strikingly site to a subdomain, you will need to add 1 CNAME in your domain registrar. Here's our guide

That's it! Easy, right? Keep in mind that using your own domain or subdomain is only available to Pro or Limited users, so you'll have to upgrade to implement this!

Here's how a single company uses us in 8 diverse ways:

Each of these pages were created independently by different marketing heads and community managers, then later connected to a subdomain, allowing any team member to quickly launch a new initiative!
