Alternative to LeadPages?

50 replies
Ive just found LeadPages and it looks very impressive but im turned off by subscription software - is there an alternative I can pay a one off fee and use on multiple sites?

I want to do some testing on some sites before I add Optimize Press 2.0 or DAP Digital Access Pass and create dip feed content

    Yes Steve the new version of OptimizePress 2.0 would be the closest that I've seen. It really depends on exactly what you're trying to test.

    If you want it all in one, then OptimizePress. If you want landing pages and/or membership, then InstaBuilder and InstaMember.

    (as an example, this is one of my simple InstaBuilder pages, just an example of what you can create, but options are endless, Justine Antoinette | JustineAntoinette.com)

    I haven't purchased OptimizePress 2.0 yet, not sure if I will, but have seen it's layout and it's looking impressive. This new version is one I may actually use.

    I chose to stay with InstaMember for Memberships because of the added inbuilt affiliate setup along with the types of services it integrates.

    Your ultimate choice will be based on what you ultimately need, but I think it's worth checking out both.

    I use Optimize Press as there is no subscription fees involved.

    Well Optimize Press will allow you to build landing pages (slowly), but I guess it depends on what other landing page marketing features you need (split testing, reporting, segmentation, auto-optimization, dynamic content insertion, etc, etc), and how serious you really are about pushing profits

      What about video lead capture? Where the video has the sign up form in it?

    I am not familiar with LeadPages or Optimized press. I usually make my own lead capture pages. However, if LeadPages works well, I don't see why I wouldn't want to pay the monthly fee.

    Things that offer real value and convenience do cost money.

This guy I met on facebook told me about it and he was converting higher using this software over leadpages!

    Hi Steve,

    LeadPages is awesome. I only use LeadPages. Yes, it does cost money, but in the long run it pays for itself. It has so many terrific features.

    Good luck with your decision on what system to use. :-)

    I've used OptimizePress for a couple of years. Love it. Having said that, there are something that I want that LeadPages can do and OP can't. So, I'm going to be diving into LeadPages, too.

    If you plan to do upsells, downsells, etc with a more complex sales funnel then don't use OP 2.0 cause it wasn't built for that. But I'm sure if you're more technical then you'll be able to customize it to work even with a complex sales funnel. But right out the box it wasn't built to create complex sales funnel unless you have some html and css skills

    I use both LeadPages and OP 2.0. Both have their advantages and disadvantages.

    LeadPages Advantages:
    • Very fast to create landing pages
    • Dead-simple conversion tracking - this is a great feature.
    • Super simple and fast to post landing page to a Facebook page.
    • 2-step opt in process with leadboxes (while LeadPages claims this results in higher conversion, I've found it doesn't so I display the opt in form
    • Good variety of default templates.
    • You can direct opt in traffic to any page with each campaign.
    • A/B testing is super fast and simple. You can create many different landing pages very quickly and assign the percentage each is displayed.
    • Single opt in is possible
    • Easily post landing pages to your WordPress website via the LP plugin.

    LeadPages Disadvantages
    • Doesn't include a drag and drop page builder. You need to submit a custom template and hope it's approved. I've not done this so I have no idea how much is involved. I use the templates.
    • Costs money every month

    OP 2.0 Advantages
    • Great templates.
    • It's a theme and plugin so you can add it to existing WordPress sites.
    • One-time cost
    • Decent drag and drop custom page builder

    OP 2.0 Disadvantages
    • With AWeber, I could not get single opt in to work. My understanding is that because it connects via AWeber API, that AWeber forces single opt in. I also use GetResponse for which you can apply for single opt in API set up. Some people have suggested to embed opt in forms using the HTML field, but that didn't work for me. If anyone has a solution, I'd love to hear it.
    • Fairly slow to build custom landing pages (but at least you can).

    If LeadPages included a drag and drop page builder, it would be the best landing page software available (of the many I've used).

    Alternatively you can use Hybridconnect which is the most feature packed wp plugin for optin pages I have seen. Its easy and yuo can customize everything.

    I use both leadpages and hybridconnect.

    There's a big problem with Leadpages: the most valuable pages on your site, the optin and sales pages, are under the ownership and control of an outside company. if that doesn't make you a captive client (ie price insensitive) I don't know what does!

    For that reason I use optimize press, since it is a theme that I host on my own website and retain all ownership of the pages on.

    I myself LOVE Instabuilder as it is very simple to understand and you honestly don't need to watch the training videos to get the hang of it. I got used to it in about half an hour. They also make beautiful pages, which are responsive as well.

    I also love FunnelKit as you can make some of the most gorgeous squeeze pages.

        This is a good reason not to use them. It seems like a lot of the sales pages that I see lately are made with leadpages. You can spot them in about 1 second.

        I use Optimize Press 2 but I think Lead Pages looks easier to use.

        I really like Optimize Press 2. Profits Theme look good as well.

      OP: I'm no fan of the subscription either, and feel a burn in my pocket whenever the monthly fee is deducted.

      But... LeadPages is awfully good. It's hard to think that anything could be comparable. They have templates for just about every eventuality, whether ebook launch, webinars, 404s, about-the-author/site, sales pages, video courses. etc. All can be sorted by the conversion rate marketers have enjoyed with them. That's padded out by an affordable marketplace with more templates. And it is just so damn easy to use - you can edit a template in the browser, and quickly whack it onto your Wordpress site.

      I don't mean to make a sales pitch for LP, but rather emphasise that most other options don't have the ease, efficiency or pre-testing. Other than hosting, it's my most important monthly IM expense.

    I have used both LeadPages and more recently, ClickFunnels (free 14 day trial) - both are good, but are costly if you are just testing some concepts.

    If you want a free option that is really pretty good MITS Pages is my recommendation. There is a paid option, but the free one (has their company branding) has pretty much all the functionality of the paid.

    I like Optimize Press as an alternative to Lead Pages. Probably the best $97 I've ever spent on my internet marketing business.

    If you want something really robust where you can build out entire funnels go with Click Funnels.
