Instapage is an incredibly powerful tool. I began using it in 2014 to run Google Adwords campaigns and immediately found great success. Since then they've invested a ton in the product, making it the simplest drag-and-drop editor out there. I use Instapage for Growth Marketing Pro and nearly all consulting jobs I work on because it's so dang easy. I love the integrations with Mailchimp, Salesforce, Zapier, etc. I use them all the time to send my leads to the right places.
I wish the mobile editor required a little less tweaking. In other words, once you make a page in desktop, you need to switch to the mobile editor to make sure it looks good on mobile.
Price could be a bit lower. But again, for the value it's the best.
Instapage is landing page editor with a very smooth experience The learning curve is very small compared to other software. Comes with diverse templates, easy drag-and-drop editor You can store the media files you need for your landing page. Perfect for the WYSIWYG experience
A bit pricey Mobile landing page building experience is terrible, it's supposed to "copy" whatever structure and elements you have for the computer's version requiring "minor adjustments" however 9/10 times requires you to practically do it again from zero.
Nice but it can honestly be better. I prefer Leadpages over Instapage, there's a larger learning curve but it's worth it, in features/results and price.
By accident, I landed on Instapage.com and since then I have been working on it by my self, adjusting my landing pages and campaigns in the must simple way and without compromising power or quality. The authoring tools are intuitive, the templates are attractive and the support was amazing the first time I needed it. I highly recommend it for small business, personal projects or experimental initiatives. I haven't explored any enterprise feature at Instapage, because I haven't had the need yet. However, all of the above looks like the right tool to create, publish and manage your marketing communications to multiple audiences.
I haven't found any important issues. So far just adding fonts or advance customization require more coding and is not as automated as the rest of the app is.
I would highly recommend Instapage. It is by far one of the most useful tools I have used.
Instapage offers a lot of customization and various features to easily set up landing pages and analyze data from them. While Instapage offers several decent templates to start, it also allows you to add whatever elements to your page that you desire, wherever on the page you please. Customer service is great! One thing that sets Instapage’s customer service apart is that they take the blame for their own mistakes (yes, mistakes can happen) and actually do fix them.
Undo button needs to be fixed to work like normal documents. Right now, it reverts the entire text box to how it was prior to altering which can be a pain.
Instapage is well worth it and probably the best landing page software I’ve tried. Overall 9/10 if I could rate them.
I thoroughly enjoy using Instapage. It is not difficult at all and very customizable. The many template options make it very easy to create a fresh landing page. Additionally, those templates can be edited freely and adjusted until you have exactly the result you want.
It can be hard to figure out how to do certain specific tasks or editing. Customer service is very helpful, but it’s be much more convenient to have instructions on the front end.
Overall, the price is worth it in my opinion. Obviously, it’s not free, but the benefits it offers are well worth the initial cost.
If you want to build an email list and sell products, you need to create beautiful landing pages. Not only does Instapage help you do just this, but they provide templates for landing pages that convert. I love how easily it integrates with other platforms, for example, email marketing services to directly send you subscribers. Landing pages are easily customizable to include your branding. Plus you can connect and send visitors to thank you pages to further nurture them.
I think the price could be more competitive compared with other similar tools
Let's get this out of the way: Instapage knows what's up. From the technology to experimentation to analysis.
When creating a landing page, you need it to function well but if you aren't paying a designer, you need it to look amazing. This is where instapage can fall short at times. Not saying it's not useable, but with the customizable features, you need to have a grasp of what you're doing albeit you can the page up quickly.
Solid 'B'. You can get the same or better for cheaper elsewhere. If you're looking for fast and reasonable, by all means.
Instapage helps you creating stunning landing pages in minutes. The best part, you dont need to have a technical experience to use the app. The interface has drag and drop functionality. It's easy to integrate with email marketing, CRM & the ilk. The A/B testing feature is nice & easy to take a quick look to see which page variant is doing well. There are more than enough templates for any industry or requirement - which makes it easy for you to build your landing page with the page content cues already there making life easy.
Limition images in free library
Easy to get up and running with their customizable templates. Love the A/B testing built into the workflow. Saves a ton of money with design resources or freelancers if you are willing to use and self serve in house.
Integrations with other marketing apps have been a bit wonky in the past (MAP) but improving.
A solid choice for those that would spend on design time or freelancers to develop landing pages.
Very intuitive page builder, excellent customisation features, good template library, easy and simple to use and edit.
When switching to the mobile version, the overall layout is all over the place and it is very tricky to improve the overall design
A bit expensive but you get an excellent, powerful platform for your landing pages.
Instapage is a simple drag-and-drop landing page software editor much like Unbounce, Leadpages, etc. I’ve used a few of them and Instapage feels like the easiest to use. It’s intuitive, not at all rigid — so I can get things to look just how I want and I use lots of the integrations. I like some of the templates as well, which are set up for lead capture out of the box. I use Instapage for many of my Facebook and Google Ads campaigns for Consensys and clients.
I can’t think of many, but I suppose the editor can lag/be a bit slow on occasion.
It’s on the higher end of price ranges for landing page software, but you’re able to produce the prettiest pages, fastest. So for anyone running a high volume of campaigns, it’s a must have.
Instapage is the best landing page software provider.It is elegant, displays beautifully and best of all. I would recommend this for any business .
Tough for me to answer about the cons since I haven't used another landing page platform.
Easy-to-use tool for those just starting out with landing pages and need to experiment for only a few months.
Instapage is an amazing tool for landing page creation. I pushed the service to its limits when I created my first page as I attempted to recreate a full Photoshop page I had designed. The interface is clear and intuitive. The templates look great. The ability to add custom code and CSS was a blessing. The analytics on the backend were detailed and clear. I was able to seamlessly integrate the page with my full Wordpress site. The support was responsive and very helpful. I would certainly come back to Instapage the next time I am in need.
For my use case, I didn't really find any cons. I was able to accomplish everything I wanted to with hardly any issues at all.
The value was a no-brainer for me. The ease of use, integrations, and analytics make the process simple and streamlined.
Easy to use drag & drop editor. Quick & efficient. Integrates with other software, which is amazing. Cheaper than other options.
You have to continue your subscription with them to continue to use the page you created. You can’t transfer it out to a different hosting company.
Good value for the money
A bit expensive
Instapage is one of the easiest landing page creators I have used. It is elegant, displays beautifully and best of all, it CONVERTS! I would recommend this for any business looking to convert more.
Worth every penny!
Overall I found the platform easy to use for both beginners and experts. The templates offered are straight forward and easy to edit but very effective. The additions to the landing page were integrated seamlessly as well. I also like the provided secured URL. The builder itself is why I chose Instapage. It is hands down the best builder in the game.
I can't say that there are many cons to the platform itself. I don't remember what it was, but there was something I couldn't figure out and it took hours to find an answer. The support is good but I didn't want to wait over 24 hours. In my opinion, Instapage should utilize YouTube as a place to teach users how to use their platform, while generating more leads.
The value received for the amount paid is questionable. In my opinion, the base plan is too expensive and should be $50. Most new users that want one landing page aren't able to afford a consistent $90 a month. However, the features on even the single-page plan are still very good. This is why I stand by their price model, even if I don't agree with it. What Instapage offers, others don't.
Extremely versatile. Allows specific template details for monitors and cellphones. Easy to add and manipulate images. Url additions simple
$99.00/month. Inexpensive for a first class landing page development program
I feel one it's best features is how fast you can get a landing page up and running. There's plenty of control over the design so you're not left feeling with "I wish I could do more". Overall a very solid choice for a landing page builder.
Easy to build a wide variety of landing pages fairly quickly and simply Very easy to create and edit pages from scratch Pretty simple interface, learning curve isn't too bad, chat support is decent
Tough for me to answer on the cons since I haven't used another landing page platform.
Instapage is far-and-away the most powerful post-click experience product on the market. Full disclosure, I was the VP of Product at Instapage until January 2019, and I am a customer now at my new startup. Where it shines is in the Enterprise offering. The entire suite of products is designed for high-volume, and velocity, paid advertisers to scale their post-click experiences. Globally synced page blocks, native heatmaps, personalized experiences based on audiences, and it's only getting better. The site advertises 22% lifts in conversion rate, but that's an average. Competent marketing teams typically saw 40-60% conversion rates on their landing pages, in my experience.
It's not the place to casually test some ideas anymore. As they've gone upmarket the price can be a little cost-prohibitive for smaller marketing budgets. This is a product for a marketing team that knows what they're doing and is ready to execute their post-click strategy. Instapage is optimized for paid digital advertizing (not a con if that's what you need) but it will likely be too powerful (and expensive) for less intensive uses like webinars or email marketing flows with a few landing pages.
I'm probably biased, but the value for the money is through the roof. That's not saying its "cheap" I'm just saying the compounding effect of increasing your conversion rates even a little bit has an enormously positive effect on your bottom line down the funnel.
Instapage is my #1 favorite tool for creating landing pages. Trust me I've tried a whole bunch of others and nothing is as intuitive as Instapage. Everything is drag and drop, point and click, straight forward and easy to use. I pump out dozens of landing pages every month using this tool and I love that I don't need to rely on an engineer or designer to create a beautiful landing page in a matter of minutes.
I wish their A/B testing feature was available on entry level plans.
100% worth every penny.
Easy to use
As a digital marketing lead, I have tried creating my own landing pages. Honestly, it’s very frustrating and time consuming. However, I discovered Instapage, which for me is the only true drag and drop service out there. Instapage allows me to drop anything, anywhere. It is like designing on photoshop and having the code churned straight out, and it's saving me HOURS! Not only that, but it's A/B testing and analytics capabilities are out of this world. Instapage is hands down the Best in class drag and drop landing page creator. It also integrates very well with other programs like Google Suite and mailchimp
I don’t really have any negative feedback. However, I do have one minor picky detail: The way dragging items work was not intuitive for me: you can drag from inside the item, but not from the border. I would like that fixed.
Instapage is essential for any business trying to create a good landing page(s).
My overall experience with Instapage has been a rewarding one, as Instapage has proven effective for my organization on numerous occasions. We will definitely be a repeat customer every time we need a landing page for any purpose.The thing I like most about Instapage is its ease of use. It is extremely easy to develop an a professional looking landing page that serves almost any need that our organization has ever had. From the multitude of features to the good looking pre-designed templates (which are very easy to modify), Instapage has enabled our organization to utilize landing pages for a wide variety of events and purposes. The cost is also very effective; definitely much cheaper than a lot of the competitors.
My least favorite aspect of Instapage would have to be the mobile development portion of the service. I have noticed that when I develop a landing page in desktop mode, I have to modify the desktop version to make it mobile friendly once I switch to mobile view. It would be much better if I could develop a desktop version and a mobile version, separate and apart from each other.
Overall, Instapage is well worth it for the price.
Instapage has a ton of amazing features. They have fantastic integrations with so many other platforms and allow for easy usage of other apps. One of the main selling points was that they included integrations with the specific tools we use. Competitors to Instapage did not offer the same integration options or even all the same tools that Instapage allows for. Even better, Instapage is highly customizable and easy to use.
The cost is relatively high especially as you upgrade to higher plans such as the Enterprise level plan. However, the tools and features offered are well worth the price in my opinion.
Instapage is an invaluable tool and one that is worth every penny. I honestly don’t know what my favorite feature is with Instapage. Gladly would give a 10/10
It's hard to pick one thing that I like most about Instapage, because there are many amazing features. Instapage integrates well with other platforms. When compared to competitors, Instapage offers much more integration variety than competitors who only offer solutions like WebHoojs or Zapier. Instapage also has amazing data analytics and features. Multiple clients thoroughly have profited from using Instapage.
The price can seem a bit tough to chew on especially with Enterprise plans. In my view, the price is worth it even though it costs more than other landing pages.
Overall, Instapage offers the best solution for landing pages. 10/10
Instapage is a powerful lead capture and converter. This platform really gets personalization. Instapage is made with the knowledge that not all customers will respond to the same ad. I really love having Heat maps and mouse movement data available as it helps to know what attracts different customers versus what doesn’t.
It takes a little bit of time and effort to successfully understand and use. It would also be nice if I didn’t have to have an additional email plugin system like Convert Kit in order to manage emailing.
I would say Instapage is tremendously valuable although it does have a few improvements that could be made.
There is so much to like about Instapage, because there are just so many great features. They have fantastic integrations with many other platforms. The templates provided are really great and setting up new landing pages is quick and easy. You can create a landing page without having to know HTML and other coding languages. Instapage is easy, simple and straightforward.
The price is fairly expensive, especially when you reach an Enterprise level plan. That said, I believe it is still worth the price. Compared to other similar programs such as Unbounce, and LeadPages, Instapage is a bit more expensive. Another issue is that the mobile responsiveness can be troublesome and require tweaking. Something else to consider is that immediate support for lower packages is lacking.
With Instapage you are able to create custom landing pages for as many clients as you like. You’re able to manage and edit all of them easily, and duplicate them and create similar landing pages. This can save hours of tedious work and frustration. It is a great platform to manage a business when your only (or your most important) acquisition tool is a landing page. Also a great tool for beginners who want a simple and uncomplicated way to come up with a professional-looking landing page.
Instapage is a smooth tool, for landing page and editing. Also, Instapage has a learning curve which is easy and small, hence, no time wastage. There is the drop and dag option, which increases the speed of the editing time. There is decent templates, which gives users an option of learning. Finally, Instapage there is super great customer support.
However, Instapage has an undo button, which in my opinion, should be improvised. Other activities are super operational.
Instapage is worth the cost, and there is no regret or complain of not installing the program. Amazing support from Instapage.
Instapage is a really powerful lead capture and converter. It takes a little bit of effort and time to understand and use. However, overall it’s really easy to use and very intuitive. Personalization is fantastic and definitely one of the best features of this platform. The templates are beautiful and reusable once built and allow for tons of customization. What’s even better is how easy it is to add just enough variety to a template to attract different types of buyers. Not all subscribers, customers, or first-time buyers are going to respond to the same ad, so having that customization is huge. The sophistication of Instapage is also amazing. Heat maps and mouse movement provide information just as if you were right behind the customer, seeing exactly what they are interested in. What’s even more are the features to analyze and use that information in a tight package.
Instapage does connect with email systems like Convert Kit and other big email platforms. However, that is actually a hinderance since I have to use an additional platform for email. That means I have one more software platform to learn and manage. It would be nice if they added in an email option to make it a one-stop platform. Overall, I can’t complain with what it offers.
Instapage is definitely one of the best marketing tools out there.
Instapage is very convenient and helpful to use. There are many options for templates which can be edited quite easily and personalized for a unique feel. Additions to landing pages are not hard to add and are quite a handy feature. Having a secured URL is like a cherry on top of an already helpful and easy to use product.
While it is pretty easy to use, there are some options that need better explanations or guides. Instructional videos would help tremendously, and there are a few out there.
The value can be worth it for the price, but may be difficult for smaller businesses especially. However, Instapage offers unique features which may make it worth the price to certain businesses.
Instapage is an essential tool in any marketer's repertoire. Its drag and drop functionality makes it a snip to create landing pages with minimal effort. The platform is super-intuitive meaning you can get creating from the first login. Plus, the support team is really responsive so there's nothing stopping you getting your ideas out into the world in minutes.
Instapage has an affordable entry point for any marketing team with their basic license, but we're so impressed we'll be moving to their enterprise tier soon.
Intuitive tool that is focused on helping my users with (1) personalization and (2) conversions. I like that the product is self-serve and I can learn it on my own without the need from much help, but they do have a success team if you need help with CRO (Conversion Rate Optimization).
I can sense that they are growing from SMB to Enterprise. Although this is likely great for their business, unfortunately, I am not from this segment.
– Page creation in as little as 10 minutes – One line of code for implementation – Live chat and phone support (phone support is a bit slow) – Large suite of codeless integrations including Salesforce and Mailchimp
- Slowly evolving into an enterprise platform
Easy-to-use tool for those just starting out with landing pages and need to experiment for only a few months.
Instapage really is a necessary tool for businesses that need an easy and reliable way to create an ideal landing page. It is very easy to create a unique landing page with the design and feel that you want especially with the many templates offered. Probably one of the best but potentially overlooked benefits is the secure webpage. This can have a huge impact on customer comfort as well as providing legitimate security.
Some things are take time to figure out how to do. However, after experimenting with it and learning how it works, it’s very convenient and easy to use.
I think the value might not quite be worth the higher cost. However, depending on the return your business gets from having a well-designed landing page, it may very well be worth it especially if the alternative is to have a poorly designed landing page.
Very easy to create and edit pages from scratch, being able to drag and drop elements and save whole blocks to re-use across different pages and variants. I used Unbounce in the past and have found Instapage to be slightly easier to use from a page building point of view.
The mobile re-ordering could be better and the cheapest plan at the time was still more expensive than Unbounce.
Good value for money. Allows us to test page designs without developers.
Instapage is easy to set up and use with no coding required. It also integrates very well with various other info gathering apps such as Analytics, Zapier, and even FaceBook. Landing pages are easy to edit for both desktop and mobile. It’s very easy to keep projects organized which is necessary to easily access data and reports.
Some of features can only be gotten with one of the top tier plans which can be expensive. However, the basic plan still offers all the essentials and more.
Instapage’s offerings make the basic plan worth it. The more expensive plans might be worth it as well depending on what you need.
Easy to build a wide variety of landing pages fairly quickly and simply
The ready-made templates available weren't especially helpful for me
A little bit on the pricey side, but has been worth it for us
Instapage is extremely easy to use. It also looks very professional while providing flexibility in design. It provides a lot of options and customizations making it easy to make multiple landing pages. Instapage also has very good analytics programs for the pages you make.
Instapage lacks an option for some basic shapes and designs in page builder. It does have a ton of added functionality, with the higher subscription, but I was forced to increase my subscription cost (doubled) for many functions I didn’t actually need. It would be nice to have a lower subscription level to only use certain basic features.
Overall, Instapage offers a huge variety of options, but it would be nice to have a cheaper subscription. If you’re planning to use most of the features, then it will definitely be worth it for you. Other than that I would recommend it.
The page builder tool is very user friendly, and makes it incredibly easy to just hop in and start building out your landing pages. The templates are all free, which compared to other platforms like HubSpot, is a big plus. Collecting form submissions is a very simple workflow, and will export directly to whatever email address you'd like it to, as well as several CRM extensions for a fully integrated experience. Insights and analytics are all consolidated within the dashboard, along with the heatmap tool, and the data available through these tools makes optimization very smooth and calculated.
We had some issues sorting out a secure redirect to a subdomain for a few hosting platforms we worked with - while it was resolved after a few days, there was a lot of back and forth with Instapage and the hosting providers customer success teams to get everything up and running. Responsiveness with full width images and banners is a bit annoying at times as well, scaling becomes an issue and a lot of times the page will output clipped or cutoff images instead of the full image you need for the page. Not many negatives on the platform overall.
For what you're paying for ~30,000 visitors, I believe we were at $110 / month, this is a fantastic product. The tools, templates, and overall accessibility have made generating landing pages for our clients and our own business so much easier.
Honestly, I have thoroughly enjoyed using Instapage. The features are all super helpful, and the product itself is great. I would like to see more features for mobile v desktop analysis, but so far it’s been super helpful.
My one interaction with customer support was not helpful. I spent ridiculous amounts of time and effort trying to get their help. There seemed to be a lack of communication within the support team. Sadly, I kept getting the response of a copy paste of a solution for a completely different problem. I may have just had a bad experience, but it definitely left a bad taste in my mouth so to speak.
I’d say Instapage is well worth the cost. Hopefully, they’ve improved their customer support since my last encounter, and if so, this would be 10/10 recommendation.
Pretty simple interface, learning curve isn't too bad, chat support is decent. I'm a marketing team of one, and our website was atrocious when I first came onboard, so we used Instapage to build out our demo and pricing pages. Was quick to spin something up. It's nice that they integrate with Autopilot as well, which is our crappy automation tool. I've never had to wait too long to get in touch with their support team, which is nice.
Tough for me to answer on the cons since I haven't used another landing page platform. They have changed the interface around a couple times since we've come onboard, and I have found it's not as intuitive as it used to be. It's still pretty easy to use though, so not a big worry there. You used to be able to AB test different versions of a page simply using a parameter in the URL, but they got rid of that. The support person I last chatted with didn't offer another route, so that's a bit annoying.
It's not terribly expensive so I think the value is pretty strong.
The instablocks feature is pretty easy to use & it’s really handy when you replicate similar “blocks” into multiple pages. Integration for ActiveCampaign, Google Analytics & Facebook are great and help streamline the workflow a bit. Even a non-designer like me can get a landing page up & running in hours. A/B testing has helped us combat gut feelings with hard data several times.
#1 load times are consistently several seconds slower than our native site. No doubt that has a negative impact on performance. I wish you didn’t have to build both a desktop & mobile version - is there a responsive solution? AMP & personalization features are only on the highest plan. I’ve had repeated issues getting things like UTM parameters passed into form hidden fields for better traffic source tracking.
Onstapage is a pretty decent solution for $99-$129/Mo, but make sure you add this to your acquisition costs!! I’ve generally had positive interactions with their live hat customer service even if they couldn’t help me.
Used to use instapage a lot for prelaunchers for a product coming soon, also used it for advertorials as a presell page before a full on ecommerce store on shopify. Overall was ok to use and the wysiwyg was nice too.
Needed more features such as checkouts for ecommerce and upsells and app market to fully do ecommerce properly. Moved onto using clickfunnels as wanted fast to checkout baked in and at the time instapage didn't have that feature. Maybe now it has merchant account integrations .
was affordable i think it was 30 or 99 a month so if used a lot this value is fine.
It is very easy to make and copy the way of comparison of the scope point in a few minutes. The help group is also amazing. I am really interested in the usefulness of simplification. How my site is displayed and displayed. Every site promoted by instapage impressed I love the ability to customize and build dependent on custom pages. The simplicity of making and managing different arrival points for us and our customers.
When I share your opinion and thumbnail on Facebook similar to your spam, I have a couple of issues in case I use an alternative, but nothing too cumbersome. You might want more registration at different stages, prefer cheaper licenses, or have an essential registration for nothing.
It is a little expensive
Easy of use.
Landing pages are slow (Google Ads constantly alerts about this issue). Once you develop all the pages on their plataform they have you locked in. Won't give you a HTML export of your landing pages. You either suck it up and pay more or have to clone all the landing pages on another software. Expensive.
At first it was pretty valuable (started out from U$ 9 per landing page). But then it wen to U$ 199 /m, which was unreasanable for us.

When I began my career, it was impossible to create quick and elegant landing pages capable of lead collection, A/B testing, and precise design.
Making great landing pages required 1) technical training or 2) web developers.
I didn’t have either.
Our competitors had great landing pages. But my company didn’t. Life was confusing.
Instapage: Superior Landing Page Software
Instapage started in 2012.
It was the software that made me realize that you don’t need engineers to build landing pages, lead capture forms or other front-end components. Marketers and founders could do it all themselves!
In my opinion, Instapage changed the game.
It was the easiest landing page software ever — it was truly drag-and-drop! For the first time, landing page software looked approachable and easy.
Why Did I Start Using Instapage?
In 2015, I became the first marketer at a real estate crowdfunding marketplace in San Francisco.
Our goal was to become the #1 destination for investing in real estate online.
We were strapped for time, cash and development resources — we only had one engineer when I walked in the door.
We were desperately trying to scale our Google Ads campaigns to acquire customers. There were a few campaigns that worked, including queries like: “hard money” and “real estate loans.” But the customers we got cost us a lot in ad spend to acquire.
Something had to change.
So I tried Instapage and used it to make landing pages specific to each of the regions we ran Google Ads campaigns in.
Lo and behold, we started getting cheap leads for people searching for terms like “California hard money” or “California real estate loans”
More specific landing pages made our Google Ads strategy more efficient than any competitor.
More contextual landing pages increased our quality score and conversion rate for Google Ads campaigns.
Instapage allowed me to start with a template, tweak it to make it look like my company’s website, play with headlines and backgrounds, and capture leads.
Instapage literally made front-end web work as simple as drag and drop editing in Powerpoint or Keynote.
It gave me complete control and I could finally make pages look the way I wanted them to look.
With perfect landing page software it’s easy to find shortcuts. You can dream up an acquisition strategy implement it and collect leads in under an hour.
Landing Page Software Use Cases
There are a ton of reasons to use landing page software like Instapage:
- Many of my clients have difficult, unwieldy signup flows — the couple minutes it takes to make a landing page using Instapage is well worth the huge increase in conversion rate.
- To make visually complicated user-facing pages fast. In fact, several pages on this website are Instapages. Check out our growth marketing tools page to see one in action. I’ve included a screenshot below.
- To create custom landing pages for events and email campaigns.
- To make great hybrid content/sales pages with nice big call-to-action buttons amidst text.
- Pages for salespeople: I’ve created countless pages for my sales teams at this real estate financing company to showcase our product offering in an elegant way.
- To A/B test signup flows, so that when our product team revamps our real signup flow, we can inform them with data on how to best build.
- Ecommerce companies can use Instapages to create beautiful, custom lookbooks, photo shoot presentations and hybrid content/sales pages.
Getting Started with Instapage
Instapage signup and setup is easy. That’s one reason I love it.
Want to get started?
You’ll enter your email and a few other details about your business use case. Then, right away, you’re dropped into your first page building session.
Pick your first template. Instapage will guide you through the creation of your first masterpiece.
But then there’s one more step — you have to publish the page on the internet and give it a URL.
Instapage gives you a few options for publishing your page to the web.
- They have an integration with WordPress and Drupal that allows you to hook your Instapage pages to your website domain through your CMS.
- You can also put your landing pages on your website by publishing to ‘custom domain.’ This will require you to make a small change in your web hosting settings. Instapage has some great help blog posts and live chat if you get stuck.
- Or, Instapage lets you publish your page on a domain they apparently own: pagedemo.co
A Few Key Instapage Features
Instapage has out-of-the-box features you may need to know about.
If you’re not design-minded, it may be best to use some of Instapage’s existing templates. Depending on your use case, they probably have a template for you. They even categorize the templates into lead capture pages, webinar page, thank you pages, e-book pages, app pages, 2 step pages, etc. I like to start with their templates and simply change the colors to match my website.
If you want to make lead capture pages, you might wonder where the leads go?
One amazing thing about Instapage is all the integrations. Send your leads anywhere you like — Mailchimp, Marketo, Hubspot, Zapier, Salesforce and more.

Get information about clicks, conversions, visitors and Instapage keeps a database of all of your leads too. Plus, it has a simple (seriously 1 second) integration with Google Analytics, so you can see your analytics in the place you’re used to if you like.

Conclusion: What’s Next for Landing Pages?
Instapage is the most well-rounded tool I’ve ever come across.
I can’t help but think we’re seeing the commoditization of front-end web development before our eyes .
Could it be: soon, artificial intelligence will create and actively optimize your landing pages for you!
But for now, marketers and entrepreneurs still have to create landing pages for themselves.
The best solution bar none is Instapage.
