Straight to the point, the answer is yes! Now, lets discuss why, but before we do lets look at the a definition of a landing page. Hub Spot defines landing pages as "a web page that allows you to capture a visitor's information through a lead-capture form (AKA a conversion form).
A good landing page will target a particular audience, such as traffic from an email campaign promoting a particular ebook, or visitors who click on a pay-per-click ad promoting your webinar. You can build landing pages that allow visitors to download your content offers (ebooks, whitepapers, webinars, etc.), or redeem other marketing offers such as free trials, demos, or coupons for your product. Creating landing pages allows you to target your audience, offer them something of value, and convert a higher percentage of your visitors into leads, while also capturing information about who they are and what they've converted on."
