Introduction

Everyone is talking about Converti versus Leadpages and while both are great sales-focused tools and industry-leading landing page builders, they do have very different features.

It's  important to understand the differences before diving in head first and parting with your hard earned cash. 

Landing page builders can be used to generate leads or to build a clients website so it is also important to know what your purpose of buying a funnel building software tool is.

This page dedicates itself to going through the actual benefits, side by side so you can make an informed decision on which funnel builder is suited to your needs. I try to be as honest as I can about both products. If they deserve a bashing then I deliver it, if they deserve a compliment I deliver it....

Hi Its Craig Connelly here and I have used both tools extensively in my lead generation business and one thing that is important for my business (and conversions) is the speed of the webpages. 

The easiest way to find out which is best is to run a speed test on pages of a similar size that are hosted on both platforms and see who rates as fastest. Sound fair enough? 

I have found these pages totally at random and both are hosted on the different companies platform and both landing pages are the same size and have similar characteristics. I have tested the speed on Google speed test and also GTMetrix so the comparison is fair.

The support at Convertri is excellent. Also the owners of the business (Neil and Andrew) both answer questions along with the support team via the facebook group.

It took a while for the support to improve and every now and then you need to give them a push but overall I am loving the support at Convetri

Overall Leadpages support is good although the support can be slower than Convertri and this is due to the many members they have who have purchased the landing page builder.  So if it was faster at Leadpages I would rate it higher

Wow this is a tough one as the list is so long and there are so many sales-focused tools and features in both products, so I have tossed and turned on what to say here. I ended up comparing what I consider to be the important things and lets be clear that I don't use everything on both products but I have used most features.

Autoresponders Integrations: Convertri

Convetri has a unique system for adding integrations which works brilliantly and means you can add most autoresponders with out an API Integration.

Convertri is adding  APIs and currently that is Aweber, Mailchimp, Getresponse, Active Campaign, Sendlane, Drip, Infusionsoft, Convertkit and more being added weekly. 

Personally I just use the HTML element which I find equally as fast!

Web Hosting: Convertri

Convertri offer the best web hosting I have seen on the planet. It is included in the monthly fee and is very, very fast on mobile and desktop.

AB Split Testing: Convertri

This is included in their standard package for all sales funnels. Results are shown in the dashboard in a simple manner. 

It is a simple to use inbuilt system and works brilliantly. The only downside is Convertri retains data once the winning page is selected which means the other pages data is lost.

Inbuilt Shopping Cart: YES

Convertri has an API connection with Stripe built within the software which makes selling products a breeze.

At the time of writing this Paypal is weeks away from the final integration and will be added soon.

Ease of Use with Page Editor: Convertri

Convertri is a drag and drag free form editor which means you can drag any component anywhere you like on the page. 

There is also an option to build pages using layers which means you can overlay some very flash things that look like a top developer has done them.

Mobile Pages: Convertri 

Convertri gives you full control of mobile view, a big plus in my eyes. It allows elements to be seen or not seen on mobile and desktop which means you have 100% control of the mobile view. There is no "text editor" for mobile so what ever text you have on desktop is what shows, so if you want certain text or images shown on mobile only you just unselect "desktop" too easy !!

Upsells, down sells and so on

The Convertri feature of an Integrated shopping cart lets you create 1-click upsells, downsells and set up subscriptions, trials, and even use bump offers to get your funnels working effectively and producing sales. At the time of wrting the cart was connected with Stripe but Paypal is being introduced shortly​

Media Storage

Converti host all image files with no limits, however video files are hosted off site (Amazon S3 or Youtube or Vimeo are recommended)

Two Step Opt Ins

Convertri has a brilliant system for creating one step or two step optins which relies on the API integration of an autoresponder or manually using autoresponder code

After and In Content Opt-in Forms

When browsing content Convertri has the option of  a"mouse over" or a "click" which can trigger a "layer" to respond. 

The "layer" can be an opt in popup with form linked to your favourite autoresponder, or just a form

Navigate within IFrame

Convertri has a fantastic feature called "navigating within Iframe' which means you can use your pages within software programmes such as Product Dyno so you can create pages within Convertri and then password protect them with Product Dyno. This is perfect for building "Intranets" for small to medium sized companies or a great way to share downloads and product news for Franchises

Leadpages has more integrations than Convertri such as  Aweber, Mailchimp, Getresponse, Active Campaign, Sendlane, Drip, Infusionsoft, Convertkit Arp Reach, Constant Contact, Hubspot, Icontact, Kicktopp, Mailerlite, Mail Poet, Mail Relay and more.

Leadpages wins on this one at the time of writing

Web Hosting: Leadpages

Leadpages offer excellent web hosting too and it is fast and efficient (not as fast as Convertri) 

AB Split Testing: Leadpages

Currently only offered in Premium packages and is a simple yet effective Lead pages split testing feature

Inbuilt Shopping Cart: YES

Leadpages integrates with Stripe as well 

Ease of Use with Page Editor: Thrive 

Leadpages editor is based on element blocks which are dragged into place but are restricted on the page of where they can go due to built in page width code. This can make building a page very frustrating. I have also found the Lead pages drag and drop editor a bit buggy at times

Mobile Pages: Leadpages

Leadpages does not have a separate mobile editor which can be a right pain in the backside. The mobile view is automated by Lead pages and can be great some times or not great at other times.. There are some element adjusters that have limited abilities to move content up and down, or side to side but this usually ends up screwing up another part of the layout on desktop for me.  

The main frustration for me is the mobile menu icon which takes up too much room and wastes a lot of space in prime real estate at the top of the page in mobile view.

Other landing page builders like Leadpages, Instapage, Click funnels and Thrive landing pages are what we call block builders. The element has to fit with in a certain area of the page and other elements can not be dragged on top.

They either have to go to the side, top or bottom.
