Also on the agenda is a marketplace (similar to the one launched at LeadPages) which will allow people to share and sell their high converting funnels. From the editor you”ll have the ability to sell your funnel to the marketplace (will have things like reviews and much more). I wasn't personally at the event to hear this but I'm a little worried that people can purchase a funnel then may be able to share it for free. But hopefully they address this and make it easy for people to sell their sales funnels.
So overall, Clickfunnels has been making some major developments to their platform (all the while their support team has still been doing a fantastic job). Really looking forward to how the affiliates roll out goes and how smooth it'll be for people's launches at the beginning. No doubt there'll be issues here and there, but hopefully it doesn't upset too many affiliates during a live launch!
Let's talk about LeadPages for a little bit. It's been a while since I've spoken about the platform upgrades which LeadPages has been doing so I though I'd go a bit deeper this time into some of their changes too.
New Landing Page Designs:
It's really awesome to see LeadPages continuing to stay on top of releasing great looking and high converting landing pages. I have to hand it to them and say that their landing page designs are still much cleaner and attractive than those of Clickfunnels (however that might changes as the marketplace launches and people begin to up their game).
LeadPages has launched pages for things like:
- Podcast Landing Pages
- VSL Pages
- Updated Webinar Host Pages
- eCommerce Marketing Pages
- Bonus Pages
- Social Share Thank You Pages
- Quiz Pages
- Google Hang Out Webinar Pages
- Call to Action Pages
- Simple Email Capture Pages
- And Many More…
It's really nice to have this great library of landing pages at your finger tips and be able to continue to build on them.
LeadPages Jobs Board:
LeadPages released a ‘jobs board' which now allows people to post and apply for jobs to do with LeadPages. This includes anything from copywriting, driving traffic, updating templates and more. So if you're looking for someone to go in and optimize your LeadPages or setup your LeadPages and funnel for you, that is now a real option. Jobs start at $5 per hour and go up to $100 per hour. The various job categories include:
- Conversion Rate Optimiser
- Funnel Consultant
- Template Developer
This is a great resource if you're looking for qualified marketers or consultants to help you with your landing page jobs. While the jobs on here are quite low end and time heavy, it's a great resource to use if you're just getting started.
So they're the main areas of the software which LeadPages has focused on growing. I'm extremely interested to see whether they build out any further functionality to their editor or if it'll stay the same going forward (even though there's competitors around allowing more customisations to their platforms). Another thing which you should keep an eye on is the content strategy which LeadPages has been using and how they'l be using content to drive sign ups going forward. They are a head and shoulders ahead of their competitors with the content they product and it's always interesting keeping an eye out on the strategies they use to continue to grow the business.
Overall I think both platforms have realised the industry is moving a lot quicker than it was this time last year which means more awesome features for us (the consumers). Keeping up to date on all the click funnels reviews and lead pages reviews which from users around the world can be difficult, so if you have any specific questions on either of these 2 company's products be sure to leave a comment below.
Look forward to our next update soon!
