We use the term "Landing Page" to indicate that this is designed to be its own page and contain its own sign up. This will be hosted by us, and isn't something you embed on your site, but rather it's a page that you can point people to in order to tell them about the awesome stuff you do!
Forms are designed to be embedded on your website.
There are different templates for both Landing Pages, and Forms, because you'll use both for different purposes!
Common uses for Landing Pages
The most common use for a Landing Page is when you don't have a website yet.
Or you might not want another page on your website, and you want something really easy to make, that's both well designed, and that you can send people to directly.
Common uses for Forms
This is an opt-in that lives on a specific page of your website or blog!
One common use is to embed a generic Form that allows people to sign up to a weekly newsletter, and have that be on every page of your website.
