Have you ever tried building a landing page from scratch?

It's not easy, we all know it!

Even in 2017 there are some tools that have a steep learning curve and take a lot of time to learn how to use.

No one wants to be spending weeks building out a simple landing page or sales page for their business.

How this course will help you decide what tools to use

I put together this course as a way to compare and discuss many of the major landing page platforms.

I've had experience using many of the platforms from free, to one time to monthly and I've spent a lot of time testing and tweaking.

I'm going to walk you through many of the platforms widely available for Wordpress discussing the pros and cons of each.

I then guide you through some example landing pages I built with ease using my favorite Wordpress landing page creator.

If you have ever been interested in creating your own landing pages for Wordpress, this is the course for you!

I used Instapage a while back and was pretty happy with it, they've updated it a lot since and do include Wordpress integration. They also have a free plan.

OptimizePress is a good choice if you plan to also build membership sites, I've personally never used it but I know a lot of marketers do use the platform and it is widely known.


Leadpages is an awesome landing page tool but it does not come cheap, if your looking for advanced features this is a good choice.


This is a very simple Wordpress plugin that I used in the past, the big benefit to this tool is some of the graphic templates included with it. Depending on your goals this might be worth at least checking out.

Marketer Plugin

Visual composer comes with a lot of themes over on Themeforest, it's a pretty good plugin and very affordable.

Visual Composer for Wordpress

Thrive themes is my #1 recommendation out of all the tools I have used. I've been very happy with the support and can generally create everything I have ever needed to with the plugin without any issues.

In the upcoming lectures I'm going to show you how to use this plugin and some examples of sites I've built with it.
