👉 What is the benefit of a Thank You page?

One of the biggest benefits of having a Thank You page is the opportunity to build a great relationship with your users by giving them a pleasant surprise and adding more value to their actions.

Moral benefits: The best way to make users feel confident and happy with their choice of action is to immediately confirm its value.

Or if they just donated money for your cause, let them know how their money will be used and how their action does make a change.

To Sum Up

The only wrong way to go about a Thank You page is to not set up one for your users.

Without such a page, users won’t know if their action was successful and what to do next. On the other hand, you also miss the chance to engage your users, add value to the completed action, promote more content or services, or inspire further action.
