Overall Satisfaction with Instapage

We're using Instapage for all of our clients running Lead Gen PPC campaigns. It is used by only the Paid Media team at this point. It allows us to create several personalized landing pages for different search campaigns without the use of our own or the clients dev resources. The landing pages are fairly easy to create by team members with no dev/design experience and can be customized pretty comprehensively if needed. We also utilize the A/B testing features, which is another aspect our process that clients value.
  • Easy for team members that don't have dev/design experience to create quality landing pages
  • Has many integrations that can easily be connected to existing client CRMs/process and tools
  • Relatively affordable, simple pricing model, makes it more practical for clients with limited PPC spend
  • The mobile versions of pages usually require extra work and are prone to breaking, the responsive functionality could be improved
  • Instances of updates being made without getting notified. The most recent 2 step form update broke all of our forms and needed to be re-integrated and mobile pages had to be fixed
  • Only being able to have one user signed in at the same time is silly, it really inhibits our team when we're trying to meet deadlines with several clients
  • Allows for fast turnaround times for clients that don't have conversion rate optimized landers/sites
  • Reduces dependence on more expensive/time consuming dev resources
  • Issues with responsive functionality and software updates has resulted in instances broken pages and integrations being disconnected
  • A/B testing features easy to implement and is another selling point for our PPC management service
Optimizely - More expensive and responsive functionality is less reliable. The WYSIWYG editor is also a little more difficult to use and many times requires custom coding for desired experience. The A/B testing tools are a little more sophisticated, but Instapage is sufficient for most use cases we've had. One definite benefit of Optimizely is the ability to import existing site/pages into the platform. This reduces time it takes to build out the clients branding/styling and makes solutions for Ecommerce sites far more practical.
Best suited when working with clients doing lead gen PPC campaigns. It is easy for team members with little design/dev experience to create quality, functional landing pages. These are also easy to scale, allowing to create customized landers for several keyword/audience segments. The tool/CRM integrations are easy and it's possible to get entire campaigns up and running in a day or so. E-commerce campaigns are a little more tricky and would probably suggest another solution.
