I love the speed of Convertri. Nothing beats it and we get great results with Search Engine Optimization and increasing landing page conversions. Convertri has what is known as accelerated pages which means the mobile speed of Convertri is based on Google's stripped down code which loads incredibly fast. It is no secret that Google likes fast loading sites and Convertri is very fast.

Leadpages uses blockform technology for building landing pages and lead gen website pages. 

Blocks are content elements that you add to the edit screen to create content layouts. Each item you add to your post or page is a block a block for each segment of the page.

Blockform gives the user less control then free form and means you have to work within the confines.

Block form also means you can not create layers easily like you can with drag and drop system like Convertri

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 or via the ticket system.

Overall I am loving the support at Convertri.

Updated 2019 Can't fault it 10/10

Overall Leadpages support is good although the support can be slower than Convertri.  So if it was faster at Leadpages I would rate it higher. Having said that the chat feature is good and responsive and fast so overall support is good.

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

Convertri has a unique system for adding integrations which works brilliantly and means you can add most autoresponders without an API.

Convertri is adding API's and currently there is Aweber, Mailchimp, Getresponse, Active Campaign, Sendlane, Platform.ly, Drip, Campaign Refinery, Infusionsoft, Market Hero, Convertkit and more being added weekly. 

Personally I just use the HTML element which I find equally as fast and will integrate with all autoresponders!

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.

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

Top Bar Sales Tools: YES can be exit intent or timed

Autoresponders Integrations: Leadpages

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.

Web Hosting: Leadpages

Leadpages offers web hosting too however mobile is quite slow in comparison  and not as fast as Convertri. Mobile is a biggie for me

AB Split Testing: Leadpages

Currently only offered in Premium packages and is a simple yet effective split testing system

Inbuilt Shopping Cart: YES

Leadpages integrates with Stripe as well 

Ease of Use with Page Editor: Leadpages 

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.

Leadpages Landing Page Builder Editor

As shown above with Convertri you can place any element on any part of the page and drag it into place where ever you like. This is true free form editing and one of the most popular reasons people buy Convertri apart from the amazing fast loading speed.

Other landing page builders like Leadpages, Click funnels, Unbounce, Elementor, Hubspot 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 and there is  a limit on where these elements can be placed
