This will open a new Web Content Record:

In the new record enter the following fields:

Name: This is a reference name in CRM for the Web Content record.

Type: Choose Landing Page.

Editor Type (Required): There are two types of editors: Free Style and Block Editor. Free Style gives you a designer and the option to edit the HTML as well. The Block Editor allows you to more easily create your page with a wizard style setup but with a little less freedom, while the Free Style Editor is a little more advanced but gives you more room for creativity.2017-05-22_12-46-14
