I build landing pages…opt in pages, sales pages, webinar registration pages…you name it, that’s a major part of my business! I create them for myself and mostly for my clients. Anyone who has thought about building a landing page of any kind has likely heard of LeadPages. If you have used it and wanted some creative license with your new page, you likely found yourself quite frustrated with the cookie-cutter limitations that it had.
Well, now the game has changed! I just had the opportunity to try out their new drag & drop builder for the first time. Its got a couple of limitations I have noticed, but overall its a HUGE improvement! I can now happily recommend LeadPages to my clients who have heard they should use it.
What I didn’t like:
- Integration with WebinarJam did not seem to carry through to the drag & drop. (The integrations on drag & drop are very limited compared to the regular templates.) This specific page I was working on required that integration, so I had to turn around and return to the basic template (and the frustrations that go with it…boo!). I think if you have the LeadLinks upgrade that might be a work-around. This client did not.
- There are a limited number of templates to begin your build with. While not essential, its nice to have their proven templates as a guide. I didn’t have trouble finding an opt in page, but there are no thank you pages with the drag & drop option.
- Everything seems to have really slowed down. Maybe it was just me, or maybe it was just today, however it seemed to be a server load issue…but I had to refresh loading pages a few times because they just kept loading and loading and loading. I’m sure this is temporary!
So far that’s my only complaint. And I expect that integration issues is something that will be resolved before too long. Plus, I’m sure the d&d templates are being added to frequently.
For a straight forward opt in page going to one of the more common integrations, such as Aweber or Go To Webinar, or with a simple link, the new LeadPages Drag & Drop page builder is quite nearly perfection met.
Have you used LeadPages Drag & Drop feature? What did you think abou tit?
