To be 100% honest, so far as I know, ClickFunnels doesn’t have many true competitors.
It’s kind of in a league of its own.
It replaces the need for quite a few other tools, and I don’t think any other tool currently comes close.
However, if you are wondering how ClickFunnels stacks up against some of the more popular solutions that people consider to be competitors of ClickFunnels, here are just a few…
LeadPages – This tool was primarily designed to give you lots of different ways to capture leads. It does what it does well, so if you are just looking for a lead capture tool, that can help you capture leads from your websites, or if you just want to send traffic to the cloud-hosted pages directly, it’s a solution. However, the only thing I don’t like about LeadPages is that it doesn’t give you much freedom to custom the page design…even with their “drag-and-drop editor”, which is kind of a pain to use.
WP Profit Builder – This tool has a lot in common with ClickFunnels. The main difference is that WP Profit Builder is a one-time price (which I do really like) and that it’s also a WordPress tool, which means you will need separate hosting. ClickFunnels, on the other hand, hosts all your pages and sales funnels in the cloud for you, so you don’t need to be a technical wiz in order to get everything started and setup.
Instapage – This is a tool that I don’t hear a lot of other marketers mention too often, but it actually looks pretty sweet. If I needed just a standalone drag and drop landing page design tool, then I would go with Instapage over LeadPages. The pages are also hosted in the cloud, which is cool.
SamCart – I like the idea of SamCart, but since it came out about same time as ClickFunnels and ClickFunnels seems to do so much more for the same price, I just can’t wholeheartedly recommend it over ClickFunnels. SamCart pages are certainly is going to convert much higher than an ugly PayPal checkout page, which is one of the main reasons they created it, and they have a cool metrics dashboard, that you can use to help measure the ROI on your products and calculate your customer lifetime value. But, again, it’s hard for me to recommend it if I had to choose between it and ClickFunnels. However, try it out for FREE, and if you love it and it works for you, stick with it.
Infusionsoft – Even though I hear that Infusionsoft is a bitch and is super complicated and hard to learn, I also know that a lot of high level online marketers have their entire businesses all wrapped up in it. The one piece of feedback I recently heard was that Infusionsoft has a better affiliate management solution that ClickFunnels’ Backpack…but Infusionsoft is pretty darn expensive. So, if you’re just looking for a great tool to manage your affiliate program, I would continue using ClickFunnels, and instead maybe go with a third party affiliate management solution like iDevaffiliate.
Ontraport – I only know of a handful of marketers that currently use Ontraport. The ones that do said it’s much more user-friendly than Infusionsoft, but that’s about all I know. It is sort of an all-in-one marketing tool, similar to ClickFunnels, so you may want to try it out to see how it works for you.
Those are my two cents about how ClickFunnels stacks up against some of its most popular competitors and alternatives.
Most of these tools have FREE trials though, so if you’re unsure about a specific solution, it’s always worth it to take it for a test drive.
If you love it, you can stick with it.
If not, you can just cancel after the trial period is up.
And if you are considering investing in ClickFunnels but haven’t yet, I want to let you know about a special offer that not a lot of people know exists…
