Leadpages used to be one of the top funnel builders on the market, but many alternatives have been launched over the years. A lot of these alternatives are better options. So if you’re currently using Leadpages and looking for alternative solutions, you will want to check out this list.
Leadpages alternatives include Clickfunnels, Instapage, Dropfunnels, Fast Funnels, HighLevel, and a WordPress Plugin called Thrive.
This article will take a closer look at each option and why it should be considered.
Big Name Alternatives
Clickfunnels and Instapages are the big named options that have been around for many years. These are stable, proven, and have a good following. So you have probably heard about them before.
Clickfunnels is considered the category kind right now for funnel builders. If you are a business owner looking for a quality funnel builder, great community, quality training, and a good number of features, you should consider Clickfunnels.
Take a look at our detailed Clickfunnels review to see if it’s right for you.
- Standard – $97 Per Month ($80 when paying Annually)
- Platinum – $297 Per Month ($247 when paying Annually)
- Occasional Specials
- Considered the best
- Huge community and training library
- Good features
- Slow Load Times
From our experience, Instapage is the easiest funnel builder editor to use. It is the most straightforward drag and drop editor on the market. Instapage is also adding a huge number of feature, but cater to a larger business.
The challenge with Instapage is the cost. For new or smaller companies, the cost is competitive with other companies. But if your company gets so the people where it will have more than 30,000 visitors per month, you need to upgrade your account to the Enterprise version. This upgrade comes with a hefty price jump. The last time we checked, your month cost jumps from $200 per month to $2500 per month that you have to pay annually.
Instapage is one of the better funnel builders for a small company, but there are comparable options available at a much better price unless you have a limited budget.
- Business – $199 Per Month ($149 when paying Annually)
- Enterprise – Starts at $2500 (paid Annually)
- Best Editor we have used
- Really nice features
- Poor pricing model
Most of these specialty Leadpages alternatives are relatively new. They are all good drag and drop editors but excel in specific areas that work better for some companies than others.
Dropfunnels is growing in popularity since it is built on a WordPress platform. This allows you to see better results when it comes to SEO organic traffic. Many of the other platforms really struggle when it comes to ranking on Google or Bing. They are just not built on platforms that are good for this.
WordPress really helps Dropfunnels with SEO rankings, but the downside of using WordPress is that the editor is not as easy to uses as some of the other options. I’m sure this will improve over time, but the editor is a bit limited for now.
Price and feature-wise, Dropfunnels is comparable to the other alternative. I do have to mention, their features page says they have “Industry Leading Page Speed,” but that wasn’t our experience when we tested it against FastFunnels.
- Starter – $49 Per Month
- Pro – $149 Per Month
- Agency – $297 Per Month
- Great for SEO
- Unlimited funnels, courses, and pages at all levels
- Editor lacks ease of use.
2. Fast Funnels
Considering the new kid on the block, Fastfunnels is getting a lot of attention since it provides a much faster load time than any other platform we have testing. It makes ClickFunnels and Leadpages look really slow.
The pricing of their plans is also very competitive to the other funnels SAAS companies. We expect these prices to increase as they grow and get out of the new company phase.
- Standard – $39 Per Month ($29 when paying Annually)
- Pro – $79 Per Month ($59 when paying Annually)
- Advanced – $249 Per Month ($179 when paying Annually)
- Lightning fast
- Integrated booking system
- Great pricing model
- New and unproven

Go HighLevel is an agency focused funnel builder. This doesn’t mean a non-agency company can’t use it, but it was built which an Agency in mind.
It includes a lot of built-in features that most alternatives depend on third party integration. HighLevel even offers a White Label option from funneling building, mobile apps, paid ads, etc. Full disclosure, we have not tried any of their services, but I can see how some businesses might like this option if the quality is good.
One of the downfalls of this platform is that there is a learning curve at first. If you are a beginner, it won’t be the easiest system to pick up. So keep that in mind.
- Starter – $97 Per Month
- Unlimited – $297 Per Month
- White Label Upgrade – $497 Per Month (This is in addition to the Starter or Unlimited Plan)
- Perfect for agencies
- A lot of agency based features
- Good pricing for an agency focused platform.
- Not as user friendly for non-agencies
4. WordPress (Thrive)
WordPress is our favorite website option. Considering the alternatives, it is easy, customizable, and can have a website up in minutes.
However, this is our least favorite Leadpages alternative. If you are used to using leadpages and move over to a WordPress solution like Thrive, it may be a challenging conversion. You will need some technical knowledge or higher help to get it set up. Once it’s set up, it’s easier, but not as simple as the other options.
If your technical, this could be your ideal alternative because it offers many customizable options if you know how to do it.
Another great feature is that it’s considerably cheaper than the other options at only $50 per year for the Thrive license. You will also need to pay for hosting if you don’t already have it.
- License – $50 Per Year
- Highly customizable with WordPress technical knowledge
- Need technical knowledge
- Doesn’t include the features of other providers
Leadpages Alternatives Recommendation
As you can see, there are a lot of great options available outside of Leadpages. It really depends on what you are looking for.
If you are not looking for any of the specialized features that I mentioned above, Clickfunnels is the easy winner, in our opinion. We host all of our funnels and our clients’ funnels through Clickfunnels except one. So we highly recommend that alternative.
We also like the editor and speed of Fastfunnels. This is an excellent option if you need your funnels to be lightning fast!
The great news is that all of the alternatives I mentioned (except Thrive) offer a 14-day free trial! So you can test all of them out without a commitment. Just remember to cancel the plans that you don’t want.
