Reviews

Fully customizable: The landing page tool has a ton of customizable features that makes it more desirable than the alternatives in the market. A lot of these features are available out of the box through templates which means users need to spend less time building pages and instead more time on launching and monitoring the various alternatives that convert. Add to this, the ability to instantly integrate your landing page builder with email marketing and CRM tools and it makes marketing quite easy and automated.

Customer Support: There are multiple opinions when it comes to Instapage’s customer support. While some users are extremely happy about the service which they say answer all your email queries inside 24 hours, there are others who are not happy. One user points out that the company has a “horrendous” support that are inattentive and inflexible which led to them being billed for two months despite being requested for cancellation within the trial period. They say that the issue only got resolved after filing for a chargeback from their credit card company. But this appears to be a stray incident as there are a lot of positive reviews about their support from other users who commend the team for helping them out in such a way that even barely computer literate customers can understand.

User-Friendliness: The tool can be extremely easy and user friendly to use. However, there are a few minor gripes. For instance, if you are creating a mobile version of your landing page, you may find it extremely difficult to navigate the various elements around in the limited space available. Instapage throws an error any time your element moves outside the build-area which makes it difficult to juggle the elements.

Affordable: While Instapage does not offer a free version of their product, their low priced version is quite affordable even for bootstrapped startups. While you may still not get access to the A/B testing tools at this price, you get the option to create unlimited number of pages at this price which is something very few competitors provide. If you are bootstrapped, Instapage is for you.

Instapage has a pretty simple interface that makes it quite user-friendly and easy to use. There are very few complaints and most of the users seem quite happy with the way it works. So that is mostly a thumbs up from our side.
