The implementation of landing pages on small business websites is surprisingly a very new method that has only been around for less than a decade. The reason so many people use landing pages is that they are a really effective way to essentially put your lead capturing abilities on autopilot. Landing pages provide a way for small business owners to capture high-quality leads that can potentially lead to further sales on a consistent basis.  

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.
GetResponse also has different amazing features like targeting subscribers, A/B testing, Automation and autoresponders, List management etc. The plugin is perfect for virtually every marketer who is looking expand his/her email list. In terms of pricing, this plugin is better than all of the other landing page building plugins. You can get this plugin for as low as $15 per month.
Leadpages offers Center, which builds some of those automatic connections from one application to another, but integrations here are limited. You’ll find lots of Leadpages integrations and connections on their Integrations page, but watch out. If you read the fine print, some of these options are listed as “compatible,” meaning they’ll sync with Leadpages, but might require a third-party connection.
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.

Hey Kenny, great article. Checking out a few of the platforms right know:) Quick sort-of-relevant question, would building manual squarespace landing pages + opt-in forms work? Can I get a similar landing page from creating manually on Squarespace as I can on Leadpages. The way I understand LP, is I wouldn’t be able to A/B test a ton, but that is manageable. At least until Leadpages makes more financial sense for me. Thanks a ton man, Ryan
Like LeadPages, but lacks some of the unique features that make LeadPages as sought-after as it is. Still, the two major features are there; building landing pages and split-testing them. Instapage uses a drag and drop modular design, which allows it to streamline the code of your site to an amazing extent. Likewise, it makes swapping out elements for split-testing incredibly easy.
LeadPages comes with two editors, A static editor and a column-based drag and drop (CDD) editor. The static editor offers a few customization options but is limited in options. This is done so as not to allow people to alter a template that’s already laid out. The CDD editor is a more customizable editor offering more flexibility by allowing you to add more elements (text and images) and move them around.
LeadPages offers a lot of extra features that make building landing pages a less stressful experience. A prominent feature is an integrated countdown timer to let you know when your pages expire, and an automatic and SMS text messaging for lead generation. In addition, it has a Zapier-like automation center, allowing you to get data from a connected app to be dropped in another.
