11. Unbounce

Also included are Unbounce Convertables with tools like overlays and sticky bars to drive more conversions on each page.  The landing pages you create using this tool are also responsive, so they’ll also work on mobile platforms and increase conversion rates.

You can also add forms to the landing page as one of the content builder functions in this tool, which is not just fillable, but appealing and attractive to your site’s visitors.

Unbounce’s built-in A/B testing feature lets you actually see which of your designs work best with your target audience and optimize accordingly. Analytics are included so you can see the overall statistics for each page you create, including the results from the A/B test so you can know when to stop the testing.

A variety of over 125 fully customizable landing page templates are available for you to view (no sign up needed), plus you can see what other visitors and users have upvoted, sort them out by industry, and/or purpose.

What to consider when choosing landing page software

Whether you’re a marketer, blogger or an online business owner, there are a few factors you need to keep in mind when deciding on the best landing page software tool to use. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Templates: check out the templates available, their responsiveness, look and feel, call-to-actions, layout and other design features. Check that the landing page software offers responsive designs you can use and/or customize with few tweaks here and there.
  • Landing page capping: does the landing page software give you more in terms of the number of landing pages you can build or does it have a cap on it?
  • Analytics: this is how you measure the impact of your landing pages so you need a software that has this feature otherwise you may never know the real time results of your landing pages.
  • A/B testing: this is also an important feature so you can do split tests between different versions of your landing pages to know which one converts higher and faster and go with it
  • Custom code features: this includes adding tracking pixels for analytics and retargeting
  • Integration capabilities: does the tool integrate seamlessly with other tools such as WordPress, Facebook, Email, AdWords, Google Analytics, and others?
  • Additional media and dynamic content: check if the tool allows you to use different media such as videos, which are a great way of gaining visitor attention, and creating interactive landing pages. If you can add contests, countdowns, payment options and other content, even better.
  • Automation: a good landing page software should ease the conversion process down the sales funnel by moving visitors from the page to automation, through linking forms to existing lists in a short time.
  • Branding: the tool should allow you to add your own brand’s features for easier identification, and matching the look and feel of your business.
