Overall Satisfaction with Leadpages

I have been using Leadpages in my real estate business for 7 years. For several industries, I have used Leadpages to build the front part of lead funnels. Leadpages software is for building landing pages and squeeze pages with the benefit of securing lead registration information and pushing the leads to just about anywhere you need the leads to go.
  • Leadpages gives hundreds of landing page templates with the option to modify using the easy-to-use "drag and drop" editor.
  • I used Leadpages to win a $20,000 lead generation contest among 100,000 other competitors. Leadpages is better than the competition because #1 the pages re-size automatically depending on the screen size of the website/landing page visitor #2 pages load really fast #3 the "Pro" pricing level includes text code opt-ins that can be very effective for gaining leads that include a phone number and email address.
  • Very recently, Leadpages made their software compatible with the Zapier.com platform to help integrate lead push functions to hundreds of additional software programs.
  • I would like to see more native integrations for software like Zoom, Calendly, and BombBomb even though these integrations are available with a subscription to a 3rd party software platform called Zapier.com. Native integrations tend to have more functionality.
  • If I could only afford one software for my business, Leadpages Pro level or higher would be my choice. It is consistently my best return on investment because I use every feature of Leadpages.
  • I know a lot of business owners that have Leadpages and barely use it. Leadpages has plenty of training videos on how to use the software. If you buy it, make sure you use it and get training if needed!
I used Unbounce in 2012 for a year before Leadpages. Unbounce did not have the features I needed and was not very intuitive.

ClickFunnels is designed to be a full-funnel system but I have found the beginning part of a funnel (mainly the landing page) with ClickFunnels to be very limited compared to the features included with Leadpages. In my opinion, there is no point in buying an expensive full-funnel system like ClickFunnels if you are not getting leads due to software like ClickFunnels being too complicated or missing features that improve registration rates.

Keep in mind, when you get good at building and promoting the landing pages you build with Leadpages, you should find a good CRM (contact relations management) software because Leadpages is not a CRM. Leadpages can send a 1st email or text message but is not designed to be the long-term nurture (CRM) software. Leadpages does have a native connection to CRM's MailChimp, Salesforce, Infusionsoft, ActiveCampaign, ConstantContact, ConvertKit, Drip, Emma, GetResponse, Hubspot, iContact, Ontraport.


The support is good, at my level I have more experience with Leadpages than their support staff so I do get frustrated when I escalate issues. I have had very few issues with Leadpages since it was invented, when I do find an issue it is usually something that affects the entire platform and they have been responsive. The advanced features I requested in 2013 and 2014 have actually been added to Leadpages recently and have made the platform even better for everyone.

If you are speaking to a live audience and want to get the phone number and email address of audience member, using Leadpages's feature called Leaddigits, you could announce that anyone that wants a copy of speaker notes, a free video, etc. to text the word CONVERT to 33444 from a mobile phone. Using this type of Leadpages technology I have averaged upwards of a 50% live audience registration rate. For best results, also add your text code call-to-action on presentation slide(s).

If you wish you could improve or customize your website but lack programming skills, Leadpages may be a good software for you. If you need to fill the niche of custom pages, opt-in pages, registration pages separate from your current website, or if you need embeddable forms and a top banner "alert bar" to be added to your current website, Leadpages can fufill the need.

If you are severely technology challenged you may have difficulty becoming proficient at Leadpages. Make sure you have someone in your company that can actually implement the awesome features of Leadpages when you purchase it or signup on the month-to-month plan while you are testing it.

  • Publishing a landing page is something everyone should be able to do within 20 minutes.
  • learning the "Lead Magnet" function is initially difficult but once you get the hang of it becomes incredible easy!
Yes - For consumers, evey Leadpages page is mobile responsive for website/landing page visitors and renders the optimal size of the landing page on their respective device(s). Each Leadpage has 3 different iterations that can be tested in the Leadpages page builder to simulate display of a full browser, a medium-sized screen of tablet/iPad, or smaller display on a mobile phone. This is an incredibly helpful feature as it can save hours of testing finished page display on different devices. To my knowledge, this feature is not available in any other landing page software vendor i.e. ClickFunnels, Unbounce.
I would give it a 10, for me, I love all the features. For the average person, the number of choices on a landing page could create a decision paradox. Thankfully the pre-designed landing page templates do not require a lot of decisions for a landing page newbie.
