If you've made the wise decision to validate your product before building it, you're going to need a good landing page. But once you're done Googling "landing page examples" and following all the best practices, how do you know when it's really good enough? You could just put it out there and see if it converts, but you could end up letting a lot of precious early leads fly out of your conversion funnel.
We at LoudList have compiled a list of resources for you that will get you real feedback from real humans so you can optimize your landing page before you start sending it traffic. You can expect to get about 20 community responses and 1 professional one if you work your way through all of these resources.
The procedure is pretty much the same everywhere: post a comment with a couple of sentences explaining what feedback you're looking for. If you're having specific problems, detail those. Don't forget to include a link to your landing page. And remember that these are communities, so leave feedback for others!
IndieHackers is a small but growing community of people interested in launching and operating independent businesses. What they lack in numbers they make up for in motivation and a genuine interest in helping out.
You can expect to get 5 to 10 solid responses here.

Landing Page Rockstars is closed Facebook group started by Nicholas Scalice, founder of Landing Page School.

KickoffLabs Free Landing Page Reviews
KickoffLabs offers no-fee reviews by professional marketers. They go through an in-depth analysis resulting in design and conversion focused feedback.
There is a price attached though: you have to refer 3 other people that need a review to unlock your free review. Considering the number of people out there that want input on their landing page(s), that doesn't seem like too high a bar to meet.
