Overall Satisfaction with Leadpages

We use LeadPages (LP) for the whole company since we are a small digital agency. It helps us build attractive landing pages fairly easily and interfaces with our email marketing software.
  • Easy drop and drag interface to build pages
  • Works really well with WordPress via their Wordpress plugin
  • Offers a separate opt-in box via leadboxes
  • Templates are always a trade off. While they do provide "ease of use" they often lock you in to a particular arrangement on the page. For example, I almost always want my logo or my client's logo to be larger in the header area. Not possible to enlarge. And if it is, I haven't found it.
  • While the API officially works with our email software AWeber (among others) it's really dicey sometimes to meld the two. You're supposed to be able to use the javascript version of the optin boxes with Awber but we always wind up using the longer, less flexible HTML version. Maybe it's Awber, maybe it's not, but then Lead Pages shouldn't say that it works with either version because it doesn't.
  • Sometimes the autosave doesn't work and you lose ALL YOUR WORK and have to start over. A real drag.
  • Helped to grow our own email list
  • Mostly helped our ROI by reselling it to our clients as part of our lead magnets and ebooks services.
Well suited if you are tech savvy. As "easy" as it is to use, it is also difficult to use for the novice or beginner. Especially with the integrations. It's gotten easier over the years but it shouldn't take years to master.
