To be 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, but I don’t think any other tool currently comes close.
However, if you are wondering how it 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 mainly designed to give you lots of different ways to capture as many leads as possible. It does what it does well, so if you are just looking for a lead capture tool, it’s priced fairly for what it does. However, the only thing I don’t like about it is that it doesn’t allow for much custom design at all (unless you’re some badass programmer, which most people aren’t).
WP Profit Builder – This tool has a lot in common with ClickFunnels, the main difference being that WP Profit Builder is a one-time price (which I do really like) and that it’s a WordPress tool, which means you will need separate hosting. ClickFunnels sales funnels and pages, on the other hand, are all hosted in the cloud, 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 cloud hosted, which is cool.
SamCart – I like SamCart, but it came out about same time as ClickFunnels and since I’ve never played around with it, I just can’t wholeheartedly recommend it or justify it for the price they charge, in comparison to a tool like ClickFunnels. It certainly is going to convert much higher than an ugly PayPal checkout page, and they have a cool metrics dashboard, which 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. 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 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, I want to let you know about a special offer that not a lot of people know exists…
