Traffic and conversion are core to any digital marketer’s job — the two main goals of the job are to drive people to a site and then make sure they take action on-page while they are there.
Only a few years ago, both of these tasks were incredibly difficult. Facebook ads weren’t around to push targeted traffic to a page. And once traffic reached a site, it was difficult to personalize for the experience and convert visitors without coding up a custom page.
Luckily, in 2019, marketers have it a bit easier. There are tons of avenues to drive traffic from and there are plenty of landing page builders to help you quickly set up a landing page.
A landing page remains one of the most effective ways to quickly capture a visitor’s information and put them on the path to purchasing your product or service. With a well-written headline, a captivating offer, and a CTA, you’re on your path to success.
Maybe you’re like the team at Harry’s and have an idea for a product you want to launch — but you don’t want to spend the time or money to build up a full site. Or let’s say you have a targeted offer that you only want some of your visitors to see. What do you do?
Turn to a landing page builder, of course!
Today, there are dozens of tools at your disposal to quickly launch a well-designed and high-converting landing page. We put together a list of 12 of the best landing page builders to try in 2019. Each software has its unique features — and we’ll cover the pros, cons, and pricing of each option.
The 12 Best Landing Page Builder Softwares
The scalable solution from the inbound traffic experts
HubSpot is about as reputable of a tool as you can get in the B2B SaaS world. And their landing Page creator is available alongside a host of other tools (forms, email, CTAs, live chat, and blogging) as part of their Marketing Hub package. It’s an all-in-one solution that can help you launch well-designed pages in no-time.
One unique advantage of HubSpot’s landing page builder is that you’re able to tie it into their CRM and take full advantage of Hubspot’s full suite of tools (including personalization). If you’re already using HubSpot or if you’ve thought about turning to their service as a CRM or email marketing solution, their landing page builder could be the icing on the cake.
- Includes 11 well-designed templates (plus hundreds more available from Hubspot Marketplace)
- A/B test every element on the page
- Easy to personalize the page (name, location, industry) using CRM data
- Directly integrates with Hubspot’s other powerful tools
- Can get more expensive on higher-tier plans
- Lacks AMP mobile pages
- $800/month (available as part of the Marketing Hub Professional plan)
The well-designed landing page builder for paid marketers
Instapage is super easy to use — and as the name suggests — you can launch a landing page almost instantly. It’s useful for businesses at all stages from solopreneurs to agencies to enterprise.
From the get-go, it’s clear that design is a key part of Instapage’s success (similar to how Squarespace has dominated the website builder world with clean design tenants at the core of their business).
On their platform, Instapage provides over 200 customizable templates that can meet a variety of goals — from Lead Generation to Webinar Registrations and App Downloads. Each template is easily customizable, and with their Instablock feature, it’s easy to visually edit a landing page without typing a single line of code. You just drag a block to the desired location and adjust the copy or imagery to your heart’s desire.
Another key benefit of Instapage? They offer a variety of solutions designed for Google ads, Facebook ads, and Retargeting ads. You can quickly tie the landing pages to these points and create custom landing pages to match the ad campaigns you’re running.

The bare-bones option for the cost-conscious marketer
Leadpages has a lot of similarities to Instapage — drag & drop functionality and a keen emphasis on well-designed templates. But a big difference of their landing page builder is that instead of building for a high-ticket Enterprise customer, they choose to focus on creating solutions for Agencies as their high-tier accounts.
In terms of price, Leadpages is one of the cheapest solutions on this list. And if you’re looking to get a page up for quickly and cheaply — this could be a good option for your business. But if you want the functionality that most growth marketers demand (A/B testing, integrations), be forewarned, Leadpages will make you pay for it.
- Drag and drop functionality
- 156 templates
- Mobile-friendly pages
- Includes conversion rate boosting extras: alert bars and pop-up boxes
- On-page payments built-in
- Integrated Facebook ad builder

If you’re running a later stage business, there are a variety of other landing page builders on this list that might have more of the functionality you desire. But if you’re in the business of selling courses or other online content and want to minimize the work on your end, try out Clickfunnels.

With their landing page builder, Wishpond gives you the ability to launch a variety of landing pages quickly and with ease. Their landing pages are mobile-friendly, launch in minutes, and allow you to integrate custom form fields to collect key information from your visitors.

And you probably know their industry-leading email software already. What you might not know is that they also offer a landing page builder as part of their suite of software.

The one-stop-shop marketing solution
GetResponse is an all-in-one marketing solution (like Hubspot) — not specifically a landing page software like MailChimp and Wishpond.
This type of software model has its ups and downs. On the positive side, you get multiple tools for the price of one. On the downside, you have to be realistic and know that landing page software won’t necessarily be the primary thing on their product roadmap.
If you’re looking for an easy to launch solution that has other capabilities than landing pages or if you’re already using their services, GetResponse could be a good choice.

The website builder’s landing page builder
Wix is an Israeli-based website building platform that has helped more than 125 million people launch a website — so they know a few things about building a page.
Their landing page solutions are designed for limited use cases (Coming Soon, Under Construction, Capture Leads) compared to other software on this list that is designed for growth marketers running paid traffic. It’s also not immediately apparent that the landing page builder is a key product — in fact, their site makes it seem like a natural use case of their website software rather than a key feature. But with a basic package available, it’s worth a look!
- Includes 30+ templates to choose from
- Can build many different types of sites — from portfolios to e-commerce sites and beyond
- Easy to launch like all of Wix’s sites
- The main function of Wix isn’t as a landing page builder

- Fewer options than other software on this list
- Free; Paid plans start at $11/month
