What is the best source for someone on a tight budget to building Landing Pages?

55 replies
I am new to this online marketing gig. I have some amazing tools that have been provided to me but I am looking for something that will help me build a good landing page and not cost an arm and a leg. Is there anything that anyone knows about that would help me achieve this so i can start marketing my business more.

    most autoresponders provide you with landing page builders. If you are using wordpress there are several plugins. just use google and search for them.

    I personally use one called paper template. just do a search for it. When I got it it cost around $7.00

    Not exactly a solution for a 'tight budget' though.

    If you google how to build cheap landing pages

    you will find list of options. True, some will convert better than others - but few marketers hit a home run on the first try. No page converts unless the offer is interesting to visitors.... Some hosting accts include tutorials on building a landing page - as do many 'how to use wordpress' sites.

    Basics of internet marketing - time and money. If you need to spend less money you need to spend more time learning to do 'things' yourself rather than buying tools that will do those same things for you. That knowledge will pay off long term.

  • What's your budget? Do you have any HTML skills? Optimize Press has good landing pages you should check it out. It's best if you knew how to design your own landing page though. You could add as much text as you like, design it the way that you want and etc. This would be the cheapest way to do it. Make sure your landing page is mobile responsive also.

    Im with the two guys who have said about OptimizePress. They have just ( well in recent weeks anyway) version 3 I think it is and they have some solid templates, at an affordable yearly price.

    I did use them previous a few years ago and would say that the conversions I got for an affiliate offer using landing pages designed with it, was 3 times more than the landing pages provided with the affiliate offer.

    Now that said, you can also do the same with Power Lead System, as they let you have total control over landing pages you can build and a pay plan that provides residual income, together with a good YouTube Training, which is more than just basic

    Hope this helps

    Aweber recently created a landing page builder. You can kill two birds with one stone. You have the autoresponder which is almost a must and their new landing page builder all in one.

    you can use builderall -> landing page builder and also an autoresponder for the cheapest price possible.
    very good solution if you don't want to pay a lot

    Look at the Bootstrap landing pages. It's not very difficult to customize them for your needs. You do need a website, though. If you don't have HTML/CSS skills, then I highly recommend that you start learning them.

    Reverse engineer some good landing pages that you've already seen or go and find some good one in a niche that is the same/at least similar to what you are up to.

    Check out what they are doing and then you can pretty much copy it with any built-in landing page creator in some autoresponders (check Mailchimp - it's free for 2000 contacts + they have landing page builder), that would be the easiest option and you will be able to easily put in the form for the visitors to leave their contact informations (which landing pages are all about ).

    Otherwise, once you know what landing page you will be copying, go into good old Google and search for free landing page builder and choose whatever // If you have a domain you can also quickly install basic wordpress and build it easily with their editor as now it got like 10X easier to click&create a page looking anyway you like (with the basic theme).

    I use GetResponse and landing page option is included in the plan for free (I mean I have to pay for autoresponder anyway). Yes it is not perfect, but still you can use it.

    to learn all there is to know to have a successful online business.
    Even autopilot tools and systems have a learning curve. I have
    been at this for 20+ years and there is HTML, WordPress, sales
    funnels, marketing, copywriting, and on and on to learn about.

    I think you must have some basic knowledge about the HTML and the other technology which you are going to create the new landing page.
    This will help you to create the landing page with low costing as well as you can go and search online for any doubtful query while creating the landing page

    Depends on what a "tight budget" means. I use GetResponse for my email campaigns and they have an easy to use landing page builder. You can build a solid landing page in under 20 minutes. Cheapest rate is $15/month (pretty decent for a true autoresponder/funnel builder)

    Most of those tools that you can get today is including landing page builders. Personally I am using Builderall and sometimes wordpress and do everything on my own from scratch. Builderall had initiall investment of some 20$, but gave me 3 domains and unlimited usage of their tools, while wordpress is more work, the only cost is buying hosting and domain plans.

  • I would say, your landing page software is the one place where you DON'T want to go cheap. It's your bottleneck - make it count. That said, I suppose you could just use the free version of Elementor theme for WP (although I try to avoid WordPress like the plague - oh sorry, too soon.)

    Many email platforms like Aweber do have Landing page tools but ... they SUCK!

    Your best bet is to use MOBIRISE or some other easy WYSIWYG template-driven tool for creating nice looking responsive pages THEN changing the code to incorporate Aweber / Getresponse/etc form code

    It's a "best of both worlds" solution

        With all due respect, I think you are putting the cart before the horse to an extent. If I were in your shoes now, I would be doing the following.
        1. Finding a good small niche to look to dominate.
        2. Researching the heck out of that niche. Who are the competitors? what is their best performing content? etc..
        3. Plan all your content - articles, videos, infographics, images etc..
        4. buy a domain and hosting - doesnt have to be expensive.
        5. Use Wordpress (not wix)
        6. Build your site up.

        The site you have at the moment is obviously just you testing out the Wix interface. In my opinion, Wix is slow, clunky and inflexible. A good wordpress theme and some plugins on your own domain and hosting is a better option.

          I agree. I use sometime wix for few clients but its taking long time to load than other and according to me if we can spend some money on wix (Not all features for free) then we can manage own domain and small hosting with wordpress site.


          Wordpress is more better than wix.

    Look for a solution that let's you build 2-step optins. Those are converting much better than the old optins. Two step means, at first you have a call to action button. When visitors click this button, a lightbox popup pops up, with a form, where visitors can enter their email.

    I use Wordpress + Elementor + WP Popup Maker Plugin. Everything is free. You just need a domain and hosting.

  • Of course, Word Press is the best. But if we talk about the best analogue of other builders, I recommend http://weblium.com/
    The marvel of landing page website templates is that they are pre-designed specifically for their function, and they are fully versatile.
    The interface of the editor is intuitive and simple, so you can fill it with any content you want.

    You should look into groovefunnels.com. It's groovepages and groovesell is currently free. As a free member you get 4 free templates and 3 free pages. One free funnel for groovesell. That is more than enough to start your online marketing. The drag-and-drop editor is easy to use and fast too. just follow the tutorial video and you're good to go.

    P.S. If you're really 'new' in online marketing, i suggest that you prepare/research first what you gonna put on the landing page i.e. headline, benefits, graphics, video, sales letter, call to action, bonuses, exit page, optin page etc. Yeah its a LOT, i know.. but there's no way around it. In this world, its either you invest time to learn it or invest money (lots of it) to do it properly

    I would have to recommend Optimize Press.


    I say this because--and I mean this seriously--If can build a solid landing page with OP in about an hour--anyone can do it.


    I know it is not exactly cheap though--but, worth the price in my opinion.

    I would just use plain old HTML + CSS. There are many free landing page templates out there and you can customize it fully. It's also a lot faster to load, which increases your conversions.
