ClickFunnels Review v/s LeadPages Comparison

Here let us first see the general analysis that we have done on the top two marketing tools of the world. While the ClickFunnels is very good for creating sales funnels, the LeadPages is also pretty good when it comes to the creation of landing pages.

But, then again ClickFunnels has also got the ability to create some of the finest and attractive landing pages that you can find on the internet.

Advanced sales funnel analyticsBasic page and conversion analytics

The Clickfunnels is such marketing software that allows you build a sales funnel for your online business to the full extent.

In other words it can easily create a complete sales funnel and at the same time it also makes sure that you have got the leads and the required buyers to whom you can hopefully sell your products through online.

Thus the ClickFunnels happens to be a very complete marketing tool when it comes to the matter of leading the leads and buyers. But the LeadPages is such an online marketing tool that it only allows the marketer to gather leads for your business.

LeadPages is a bit of a conventional marketing tool and hence it does not allow the marketer to get the buyers as well.

So, in this respect the ClickFunnels happens to be a step ahead of LeadPages.

The ClickFunnels helps you to customize your page with the help of the page editor. The page editor is very much user friendly and hence any person can use it without any guidance even for the very first time.

On the other hand, the LeadPages is a bit more advanced when it comes to the job of customizing the page, because the LeadPages has very recently introduced the drag and the drop builder along with its page editor.

This gives the user with much more options and features to implement to his or her page. But, it must also be said that the drag and drop builder is a bit difficult to handle and probably you will require help from someone who has got a bit of experience in handling it.

The ClickFunnels provides its user with the option of up sells and down sells. In fact this is a feature which is only offered by ClickFunnels and no other marketing tool. So, it indirectly means that the LeadPages does not offer its customers with the choice of up sells and down sells.

Another important feature that the Clickfunnels has got is the Auto Responder and the Affiliate Management Tool.

This is something entirely new to the marketers and no other marketing online software has ever had any sort of feature like these two in their softwares.

Thus the ClickFunnels is a step ahead of the LeadPages when it comes to the presence of the Auto Responder and the Affiliate Management Tool.The ClickFunnels has got the ability to provide you with the option of creating more than one pages and this increases the visibility of your online product.

Most of the other marketing tools do not provide you with this option since they can just create a single page for your online product. But it is not the case with ClickFunnels.

ClickFunnels allows you to build a series of pages for your product and hence thereby forms the sales funnel. Now when the customer goes through the different pages one by one, we say the customer has gone through the sales funnel.

A good sales funnel gives the customer the proper idea about the product that you are trying to sell and it also helps to convince the customer to buy the product online.

ClickFunnels v/s Leadpages – Pricing Comparison

ClickFunnelsLeadPages
$97/mo – Just ClickFunnels sales funnel builder tool$37/mo – Very limited optin pages and limited integrations

$997/6 months – Funnel Hacks Package unlimited Etison Suite + Sales Funnel Training$2400/yr – Complete LeadPages package and features and training (Only available annually)

A good pricing structure certainly draws customers towards you and that is what has happened with the Clickfunnels and the LeadPages.

But even though both the marketing tools are quite popular and both have got a good marketing pricing structure it seems that the Clickfunnels is slightly better than the LeadPages in this category.ClickFunnels’s pricing is $97 per month which is way lower than other funnel builder tools. No other marketing tool sells its entire builder tool to its customers. Most of the marketing tools sell a demo version or an incomplete version.

The LeadPages over here sells some of its optin pages and limited integrations under a price of $37 per month.You can get the entire Etison suite which includes the ClickFunnels, Backpack and the Actionetics with just a cost of $297 per month. The ClickFunnels that you get along with the suite is of course the unlimited edition.

On the other hand the Leadpages offers you the same things which have been mentioned above along with the split testing, lead digits and the lead links. All this will cost you $79 per month.

Again the ClickFunnels offers you the entire Funnel Hacks package with the Etison suite along with the Sales Funnel Training under a six month contract of $997. The LeadPages on the other hand offers you with the entire LeadPages package and also training package under a yearly contract of $2400.

LeadPages offers this entire package only on an annual basis and not on any other ground or contract.

However the LeadPages has never offered its customers with a free trial period. It however offers a money return guarantee at the end of the month if there’s any sort of problem form the part of the marketing online software.

ClickFunnels even offers you with an up sell option. ClickFunnels offers to give a two month free service if you agree to an annual contract. Similar to the LeadPages the ClickFunnels also offers such an up sell option only to those ClickFunnels members who have earlier purchased a product through the ClickFunnels.

Comparison Between The Page Designs

The v has been doing this business for a long period of time now and they only seem to get better with time. The new designs which the LeadPages is offering for your pages will simply make your jaw drop.

Now, the ClickFunnels on the other the hand does not have such an attractive and splendid page design, but the page designs that the ClickFunnels offers you are quite sophisticated and rustic.

But remember in the modern day world the people and the buyers require something new to captivate their eyes and the ClickFunnels provides them exactly that. The rustic style of page designs that the ClickFunnels offers is quite remarkable.

They might not look as good as the page designs which the LeadPages provides in the conventional way, but the page designs of the ClickFunnels have got their own beauty.

The page designs also have produced some stellar results when it comes to the conversion rates. Thus, if the rustic and sophisticated page designs can produce very good conversion rates then we think that you should not have problem going for the ClickFunnels.

Comparison Between the Two Marketing Tools Page Editor

The page editor is certainly one of the most important aspects of a marketing online tool. So of course if you have a clear idea as to whose page editor is better than and how each of the marketing tool’s page editor functions, then perhaps you might be able to choose between the two marketing online softwares.

The page editor helps you to customize your pages and the templates as well. Without the page editor you will not be able to perform any of the important functions in your online marketing tool.

However before we go into the details it must be mentioned that both the ClickFunnels as well as the LeadPages have got a very good editor. But they have got only slight differences in them and those little differences make one page editor better than the other.

First let’s talk about the page editor of LeadPages. The page editor of LeadPages over the years has been one of the most efficient page editors of all time. There has never been any complain about the page editor of the LeadPages.

So, of course the page editor of the LeadPages is certainly at the highest level of page editors. However there is only one drawback of the page editor of LeadPages, but then again it cannot even called a drawback.

The page editor of LeadPages is so good that the marketers from all around the world use it in Facebook and so if you use a LeadPages template, people will certainly know just by giving it a little look that it is a product of the LeadPages.

It may lead them to believe that you are trying to get a lead out of them. It might seem a bit impractical but it is true.

Then again the LeadPages has got some of the best professionals working for them and so we can certainly say that they are going to bring some necessary changes to their templates so that after using the page editor on them they cannot be recognized as to from which marketing tool they are from.

ClickFunnels Pages Options

Now, let us go through the page editor of Clickfunnels. So you must be right now thinking as to what the page editor of Clickfunnels has that the page editor of LeadPages does not.

Well, the answer to your question is variety and options. The page editor of the LeadPages might be very efficient but, then again it is a bit one dimensional and that is why it is so easily recognized by people.

While on the other hand the page editor of the Clickfunnels offers a tremendous amount of variety. With the help of the page editor of Clickfunnels you can even create a page from the very beginning. It has got so many options starting from the basics to the most advanced that you can do whatever you want to do with your page.

You can certainly create your dream page with the help of the Clickfunnels’ page editor. But it must be said in this regard that all the options and features of the Clickfunnels’ page editor cannot be used by a layman.

He or she has to have the proper knowledge as to what each option does to a page when it is applied and also he or she should know how to handle the page editor of Clickfunnels with efficiency.

Comparison between the Technical Support of the Two Marketing Tools

The technical support is something which has to be good for marketing online software to be called a good one. So now let us see as to whose technical support is better than the other’s.

tech support clickfunnels builder

Let us first talk about the technical support which is offered to the marketers by the Clickfunnels. The Clickfunnels provides the generous Priority phone support to its customers along with the Priority templates support.

Both the supports are certainly quite important for a marketer since he or she has to work almost each and every day of the week. So of course he or she will be a bit happier if they get a good support from the marketing tool.

However the above mentioned supports are only offered to the members of the Enterprise. The other account members only get the e mail support.

On the other hand the LeadPages offers a bit more support than the Clickfunnels offers its customers and members. The LeadPages offers its regular members with only the e mail support, its Pro members with both chat and the e mail support and finally its Enterprise members with chat, e mail and phone support.

In the near future the Clickfunnels may provide the chat support but nothing can be told with certainty.

But it must be said that the expense which you have to bear if you want to get all those supports which are offered by LeadPages is much more than what you have to bear to get the supports from Clickfunnels.

On the other hand the LeadPages offers a bit more support than the Clickfunnels offers its customers and members.

Wrapping Up

So, we have discussed all the major factors which determine whether an online marketing tool is good or bad. But in this case both the marketing tools are good, so we have to determine as to which one is better.

You can clearly see for yourself that the Clickfunnels is always a step ahead of the LeadPages in almost all the deciding factors or at least at par with the LeadPages. This is because the Clickfunnels was invented after the LeadPages was invented.

So, it gave the founders of Clickfunnels a chance to provide all those features to the customers which the LeadPages could never provide.

Clickfunnels stands on the base which was created by the LeadPages. In other words the Clickfunnels is the better and more refined version of the LeadPages.
