Leadpages Review (2024) - Is this the best landing page builder?

Leadpages is a landing page builder popular with bloggers and businesses alike. Having used this landing page builder for several years, I can say that it is one of the few good tools out there for creating landing pages quickly.

In this Leadpages review, we will talk about different aspects of this landing pages software- features, ease of use, pricing, pros & cons, and more.

Why do you need a landing page builder?

A landing page builder is software that allows a user with little to no experience in coding and design to create beautiful landing pages.

With landing page software, you can, therefore, design high-converting landing pages.

Rewind a few years, and you will recall the challenges one had to face to create landing pages. First, there was no code-free way to do so. Second, the solutions that existed required a steep learning curve for creating landing pages. 

As a result, only web developers and designers were able to create landing pages.

Fast forward to today, and the situation is completely different.

Leadpages main features

With the help of a landing page builder like Leadpages, you can create professional landing pages in minutes.

Leadpages Review: Company & History

Two US entrepreneurs joined hands with a Czech businessman to start Leadpages in 2012.

In January of next year (2013), they released the landing pages software into the market.

The 2013 version of Leadpages had just 20-24 templates. 

And it was integrated with third-party solutions such as AWeber, MailChimp, InfusionSoft, and GoToWebinar.

In the last quarter of the same year, Leadpages acquired Series A funding. And they soon released Leadboxes- timer and action-based pop-up opt-in forms.

In October 2014, the Company launched Lead Notifications, an email notification feature.

Leadpages launched Leaddigits, aka, SMS text-enabled opt-in campaigns, in 2015.

With this feature, users could join an email list, and opt-in for webinars and lead magnets using their smartphones. 2015 was an important year for Leadpages as they also introduced their most famous product- the drag-and-drop landing page builder.

In 2016, Lead Pages acquired Drip email marketing, and in 2017, the Company launched its Facebook Ads Builder.

As you can see, Leadpages has come a long way in these years.

Leadpages Review: Features Overview

Let’s talk a little about the core features of Leadpages before we dissect each one later.

The most important part of Leadpages is its landing page builder or landing page creator.

As I wrote earlier, the Company redesigned its editor and launches its intuitive drag-and-drop editor in 2016.

Landing Page Builder

The revamped landing page builder has over 130 free templates.

A ton of templates

On top of that, you get access to a huge marketplace of templates of premium or paid landing pages.

Marketing integration is key to having a versatile landing page creator.

In this regard, Leadpages offers seamless connectivity or integration with a ton of email marketing platforms, webinar software, CEM tools, and payment gateways.

Another cool aspect of Leadpages is that it offers hosted landing pages.

This means that you can host all your landing pages on Leadpages (without having to worry about server issues), while still owning your domain name.

Leadpages understands that different people use different website platforms- WordPress, Squarespace, Joomla, and more.

Hence, it offers a wide array of website integrations with leading CMS and website platforms.

WordPress integration

For instance, you can avail of their dedicated WP plugin for your WordPress website.

Digital marketing is incomplete without A/B testing.

You should be able to create a new split test quickly and assess which versions of your landing pages are performing best.
