I have heard of Optimize Press but really create landing pages with just using HTML tables, images and text. Basically just like you would be creating a post or page for you blog, but just setting this as a landing page.
In WordPress, many themes have a no-sidebar or full-width option so that eliminates the sidebar and you can create a page with HTML where only your banner shows. If you have a hosted wordpress blog, then you can use iTheme Builder and create many, many layouts for your blog for your pages and landing pages alike. Then you set the “landing” page as the “front page” of your blog.
In Blogger there is code that you can use to make the “pages” have no sidebars, but there is no “front page” setting so you have to purchase a domain name and have it link to your “landing page” specifically.
In Typepad, if you want your landing page do have a different look than your main blog, then you have to create a second blog with a one page layout for example, use CSS to set a larger width. Then create a page, set it as the front page for that 2nd blog. And then again, need to use a new domain name to map to that new landing page (2nd blog). If you try remapping your main domain name, then the links get broken in your main blog.
So in regards to setting up landing pages….WordPress has it the best.
