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, and have different template style options than the Landing Pages do.
Common uses for Landing Pages
The most common use for a Landing Page is when you don't have a website yet.
