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
Landing pages are an excellent way to let the designers and marketers think out of the box. Splash page informs the visitors about the exclusive launch, it contains the mix of texts, videos, or gamification or music to entice the visitors to explore the rest of the page. In a way, splash pages act as some interaction between the website and the users. Some splash page automatically redirects the visitors to the home page of the website, or some will require the visitor to click on the home page button.
Instapage started as ‘just’ a landing page builder, but now it calls itself a ‘post-click automation platform’. Now, I realize that’s a little jargony, but it does highlight that Instapage is more focused on creating dynamic, personalized landing pages that match your ads, rather than just creating one-off static experiences for all visitors. There’s a lot to like about Instapage’s functionality, but it’s also the most expensive tool on this list.
