In the following post you are going to find a comprehensive list of the best and most feature packed landing page plugins available for WordPress. These plugins will allow you to easily create powerful and high converting sales pages, squeeze pages and landing pages.
The possibilities of using WordPress never cease to amaze me – we’re at a point now where there is a plugin for almost anything that you could want to do with your blog.
The plugins I’ve included in this post range from free to premium plugins and they will make it really easy for you to generate more leads, more sales and build your list faster than ever before.
Before you make a decision it’s important that you understand exactly what it is that you want to accomplish because these plugins have varying costs and varying levels of functionality.
The great thing about using a plugin to create your sales pages, squeeze pages and landing pages is that you can continue to use your existing theme which will save you a lot of time and hassle.
Premium Landing Pages Plugins for WordPress
Optimize Press 2.0 – Top Pick
Optimize Press has been a leader in the field of sales pages, landing pages and squeeze pages for a long time, but until version 2.0 launched, they only provided a WordPress theme.
With Optimize Press 2.0 you get so much more; you get a plugin, theme and to make this deal even sweeter you get a complete membership plugin that’s fully compatible with Optimize Press 2.0.
If you bought the previous version then you need to stop and seriously think about investing in this version because it’s a complete rebuild with new templates for your landing pages, sales pages and squeeze pages along with an array of awesome features:
- Split testing of individual elements
- Offer countdown timer
- Extensive shortcodes
- Fully mobile responsive
- High converting templates for every type of page you need
- Incredible live editor
I’ve been an Optimize Press customer for a long time now, I bought the first version a few years ago and as soon as version 2.0 was released I bought that too.
Because James Dyson knows how to make an awesome product and Optimize Press 2.0 has taken the creation of landing pages, sales pages and squeeze pages to an entirely new level.
Don’t miss out on this.
By the way, the featured image at the top of this post is a screenshot from the OptimizePress 2.0 live editor where I was putting together a landing page for a mini e-book that I’ll be launching soon – this rocks!
Premise by CopyBlogger Media
Premise is another plugin that gives you a lot more than just a landing page plugin for WordPress.
With Premise you can setup a complete system for marketing and selling digital products.
Here are some great features:
- Setup membership sites
- Sell digital products
- Create a bunch of nice landing pages
- Unlimited websites and domains
In comparison to Optimize Press, Premise comes in at a much lower price point and for unlimited sites, but this is a trade off because there is a lot more to Optimize Press 2.0. On a personal note I prefer the templates that come with Optimize Press 2.0 but it all comes down to what you want to do and personal preference does come into it especially when it comes to the templates.
PT instant is an extremely interesting plugin, on the surface it doesn’t appear to have as many flashy designs as some of the more well-known plugins but the features that this comes with are unique and not often found in competing plugins.
One of the features that immediately jumped out at me was the ‘Real OTO Pages’ – If you’ve ever bought an Internet Marketing product then I’m sure you’ve seen one of those “One time special offer” pages that say “once it’s gone it’s gone” – then it turns out that you can get back to that page at any time you like?
That type of false scarcity does actually work but has a tendency to annoy people – PT Instant will allow you to use real scarcity – when you say it’s a one-time offer, with PT Instant they won’t be able to get back there again.
Authority Pro (V3.0) is a great plugin that makes it easy for you to create sales pages and full on sales funnels.
The templates it comes with are mobile optimized and based on the Twitter Bootstrap framework – the designs are minimal and allow you to draw attention to the right areas of the page (i.e. your calls to action).
One of the big problems that most newbies have when they come to setup blogs, sales pages, landing pages, sales funnels and all that fun stuff is the legal side of things.
Similar to a lot of the other sales page plugins I’ve mentioned, you can use Authority Pro’s features in regular blog posts – giving you access to some really useful shortcodes and graphics.
One word of warning, the OTO’s on this plugin get a bit tedious but at the end of the day you’re getting a really good plugin and prices start at $27 which more than makes up for that.
This plugin isn’t strictly a sales page plugin but it’s incredibly useful when you’re building up to a big launch – I mentioned it in my top premium plugin post earlier in the year which you can find here.
SeedProd allows you to turn a regular coming soon page into a page that will capture opt-ins and connect with popular mailing list providers such as Aweber. You can also add social buttons and there’s a bunch of other great features too.
If you have heard of the Hybrid Connect plugin you will know that it’s not strictly a sales page plugin, it is however best known as one of the best mailing list plugins for WordPress that is available at the moment.
The reason why I’m mentioning it is that it is a feature packed plugin that will provide you with a powerful mailing list solution while also giving you a straight forward way of quickly setting up mini squeeze pages to help you build your list.
Free Landing Pages Plugins for WordPress
WordPress Landing Pages
Finding a decent plugin that will allow you to create sales pages and landing pages is incredibly difficult.
The only one that I have managed to find so far is ‘WordPress Landing Pages’ and for a free plugin, it’s actually got a lot of features.
Let me be clear, there are others that are free, but the ones I came across either were so difficult to use that I couldn’t test them or you need to give up your email address to get them.
Including A/B split testing, conversion rate tracking and a nice selection of templates.
I am a bit of a plugin junky – I spend way too much money buying premium WordPress plugins and testing them out in search for the perfect plugin that will do exactly what I want.
Hybrid Connect is my day to day mailing list plugin, while you’re going to be seeing a lot more of Optimize Press 2.0 moving forward.
I’ll be using it for squeeze pages and download pages for future ebooks along with some other bits and pieces.
What difficulties do you face when building landing pages?
I’d love to hear more from you in the comments.
