Leadpages Aggregated Reviews
Although offering a powerful landing page builder, LeadPages’ secret weapon is in its ecosystem of market tools. With built-in payments, lead capture popups and even SMS opt-ins, LeadPages offers a ridiculous amount of flexibility.
Price: $25 / $48 / $199 per month
+ Pick from the best – Leadpages sorts their landing page templates by conversion rate, allowing you to pick the designs that’ll work best for your industry.
+ Integrates with Wordpress – Not only does Leadpages allow for dozens of third party tool integrations, you can quickly import landing pages into your Wordpress site.
+ A sales ecosystem – Use LeadBoxes and LeadDigits to create powerful popups and capture information via SMS. Leadpages isn’t just a landing page builder – its ecosystem of tools to improve your sales funnel.
– Inflexible editing – While Leadpages does come with hundreds of free templates, you can’t completely redesign these. This might not be a problem if you just need a nice-looking template that works.
– Limited chat support – Users with a basic account won’t have chat support available.
– Slightly clunky – The drag-and-drop editor is a little slow and unresponsive compared to some of the competition.
I also cancelled Leadpages in favor of Instapage. I was already unhappy with Leadpages, mainly because it feels pretty clunky and dated, they aren’t very responsive to user feedback, and they’re still missing some pretty basic things (like being able to pass form data to the thank you page. Seriously?).
Side note: I was going to link to the Leadpages idea portal, but they apparently shut it down. Makes sense, since it was filled with hundreds of good ideas with many, many customer votes that had been ignored for years.
Regardless, even if Leadpages was awesome, they own Drip and I won’t give another penny to such an unethical company that treats its customers so poorly.
I’ve used Clickfunnels and Leadpages extensively with my clients. It’s not a channel in of itself, it’s a tool (among many tools) to set up and monitor an online sales funnel. It definitely can be used to make money but it’s a question of your offer, the messaging and your ability to drive traffic to it.
The Leadpages editors where you edit your landing pages are poor. The original one is very restrictive in what you can do. Thus they built a second one but that is still clunky and being new its not fully baked. It lacks some key features like a/b testing (which the old editor has), inability to overlap items, and easy sizing of elements. And by the way, it also requires a CC to try. $79 month to month for mid-level plan. Leadpages is good if you need the leaddigits and leadlinks features. I won’t explain them here but they are pretty cool.

As a web agency we never could and never will be able to escape the urge of building things.
Among million other things we played with an idea of text-based games and the last piece that was missing was the story itself. So via in-house outreach platform we found two established writers that believed in the project and agreed to participate.
Shout out to Richard Abbott who wrote Fraud on Thetis and Eva Pohler who sent us a huge draft we are still reading through.
At some point we realised that list building, fetching contact details & outreach tech work just as well for b2b lead generation
Once, we fell in love with ecommerce, because of short feedback cycles on marketing & development efforts.
Today we ship into production inhouse SaaS project - AVOKADO - the web app for learning languages with flash cards.
The year after we built it we realised how long is the road map ahead & what resources we'd need to promote it and decided to put it on hold.
One day as we ship GRIN tech v3.0 into production we'll distrupt the language learning market with Avokado.
We love Wordpress and recently shipped two plugins into open beta for commercial sale.
v0.1.2.2 King The Monk - wordpress plugin to virally grow your email list
