A well-designed landing page does one thing very well, it converts web visitors into leads. However, landing pages can be used for various reasons such as promoting an event, advertising a product sign-up, or a survey. A report by Marketo stated that 68% of B2B businesses make use of landing pages to acquire leads. With the right landing page tool, you can design your own functional landing pages in no time.

While Leadpages is one of the leading software platforms that many business owners use to further their endeavors, it’s not the only option out there. One of the things that make Leadpages such an attractive piece of software is the fact that you can create entire webpages and monitor them with very in-depth analytics all in one place. Many software solutions out on the market geared towards small business owners require separate apps or programs to accomplish everything that Leadpages does in one single software application. 
Landing page platforms give you the tools to build your lead capture pages, but getting those pages connected to your site and preserving a seamless user experience can be tricky. It takes a certain level of skill and administrative access to dig around in the DNS directory of your domain host. In case you needed another layer of complication, the hosting service works as your website’s mailing address on the internet, so if you make a mistake in these files, your site will go down.
The major difference when comparing landing page hosting for Leadpages vs. Unbounce is that Leadpages gives you all three of these options, while Unbounce forces you to put your landing page on a subdomain of your site. The subdomain on your own site is arguably the cleaner option, but again, it comes down to how much time and technical knowledge you have.

Cons: I really have to be careful when I consider what I do not like about the software, meaning: is the problem the software or me? For example, I always struggle with adding a domain. I have observes that the various templates tend to be too similar to each other and need a higher level of base creativity. At times I have had difficulty with tutorial for forms building. Many times tutorials are a bit confusing or unClear, however, I see many tutorial tend to be upgraded over time.
As long as you take the time to do the proper amount of research, you should have no problem creating a high-quality landing page that will help you retain customers and boost your overall visibility. Take your time to really figure out what your customers want most from your particular product or business and then create digital marketing content surrounding their interest.
A high-quality landing page could mean the difference between operating in profit or loss for your business or company. Landing pages are the first step in gaining access to vital information related to how visitors interact with your website and product. By creating a high-quality landing page that attracts potential clients to interact with your business, you’ll be able to retain large amounts of premium leads with very little effort involved. Your landing page should represent your business in the best way possible but if you’re new to internet marketing and sales, achieving that goal can be difficult. 
That’s fairly helpful when you need a template that’s been proven to be exceptionally effective. The only problem, however, is that Leadpages does not publish the precise template conversion scores. You can’t even determine how long sites have been using the templates. There are no comparative details- just Leadpages’ overall ranking. So, you have to take their word for it.  
A word about ‘average results’: your conversions are dependent on a lot of different factors: your copy, your design, your offer, the market you’re making the offer to, so we’re not guaranteeing you any minimum level of conversions when you use a Convertri page.  Our test which yielded 25% better performance was done across 100 clicks to each page in the Paleo niche.  Will you get equivalent results?  We don’t know.  What we do know, and what we guarantee 100%, is that your pages when built in Convertri will load faster than almost any other equivalent page on the internet, giving you a better customer experience, and this often leads to better conversions (see: Quicksprout, eConsultancy, Forbes, Hobo-Web) – and that can only be a good thing.
Because you can create the landing page as a regular page on your WordPress site, you easily customize the link to your website without people knowing it’s from Thrive. Example : I can have myonlinebizjourney.com/sample as opposed to myonlinebizjourney.leadpages.com/sample which is something I commonly see with LeadPages. Honestly, I have not tested to see if these 2 link format types affect conversion but in case I am doing a live video and I want to send someone to the page, I can just give them the simpler link without having to shorten it using bit.ly or anything like that.
Bother Leadpages and Unbounce also offer templates for all the major industry categories. Then in addition to that, it’s possible to sort your options on both platforms according to the type of campaign page you want to build. But, while Leadpages goes ahead filters the templates further according to their conversion rates, Unbounce allows you to focus on templates with selected features.  
Like LeadPages, but focused equally between a stand-alone site and a Facebook tab. You can use both, or you can focus on one or the other. They have all of the email integration, analytics, and mobile functionality you’ve come to expect out of a landing page builder. As a special note, it accepts Paypal payment processing, which a surprising number of these apps don’t.
Follow directions for DNS and CNAME record setup to the letter to direct your landing pages to a subdomain on your domain. This is the most technical option of the three, but if you’re planning on setting up a lot of landing pages or landing pages for a lot of sites, you’ll want to learn how to do this so you don’t have to go bug the Dev team every time you need a new page.
In addition to providing numerous pre-designed templates, both Leadpages and Unbounce come with easy to use drag-and-drop landing page editors. And each of them supports a wide range of customization options. Their individual layouts, however, are quite different since Leadpages offers a column-based drag-and-drop editor, while Unbounce comes with a pixel-precise one.  
PPC advertising is huge in today’s online marketing industry, oftentimes people will click on a particular ad because it told them that they would receive a certain discount or item however once they reach the site, they are forced to search for the item which can be very frustrating. Instapage makes PPC advertising very easy by automatically linking your ads to the designated webpage that you assign during the initial set-up process. You can even set-up special discount codes that will automatically be applied when the potential customer clicks on your link.

Furthermore, you can review their overall ratings, including: overall score (Unbounce: 9.0 vs. Leadpages: 8.5) and user satisfaction (Unbounce: 97% vs. Leadpages: 100%). Analyze their varying features and similarities and see which one outperforms the other. Likewise, think about your company tomorrow; will your company outgrow the app in the next couple of years?
Digital marketing can be very exciting to work with minus the tools that needed to be worked on a daily basis. Implementing your marketing campaigns in different sets of tools can be very cumbersome. Thankfully, Instapage’s standalone integration page allows the users to locate and manage all the standard integrations in a page. Tools like Mailchimp, WordPress, ActiveCampaign, GoToWebinar, are some of the important ones that Instapage supports.
Hey Martin, Yes Instapage is really good alternative to Leadpages. A/B test of landing pages are required, when a marketer need to test and optimize the performance of their existing lading page. Using A/B split test; they can change and optimize different elements of landing pages and see how the changes can impact their conversion to get high return.
