A Thank You Page is a landing page on your website that simply thanks someone for doing something, and offers them next steps. If set up correctly, a Thank You Page in WordPress can really grow your relationships with your audience.

This seemingly simple page can nurture leads and encourage them to become customers. And, it can also help cross-promote to current customers. The possibilities are endless.
