Funnel Builders – My Low-Cost Top #5

Funnel Builders? Whether you want to build an Optin Page that goes to a Thank You Page on Submit or build a Sales Page with Upsells and Downsells it’s all about Funnels! Today, with these tools, it’s much easier with no need for coding and techy skills…

BUT, and this might seem unusual, I am NOT including Page and Funnel Builders and tools that require a high monthly or annual fee. The reason is simple…

I hate paying for stuff month in month out when one-time payment options are available. Sure, sometimes it’s unavoidable but in this case, mostly not.

So tools like ClickFunnels and Unbounce are OFF my shortlist as are LeadPages and Convertri. I’m not saying they are bad, just VERY expensive – especially if you are just getting started online.

Another thing about many of these recurring payment Funnel Builders is that your pages and funnels sit on THEIR site and servers and NOT yours so if you stop paying then your sites and funnels are G O N E ! I like to have total control of my online assets, thank you very much! Being held financial hostage by a software company does not sit well with me!

NOTE: In the Pros and Cons I focus on the Important Stuff – important to me anyway – rather than list all the various Features of each Page Builder – get clued up on all the various Features, Bells and Whistles by going to their sites to find the best fit for you…

IN A NUTSHELL: I see no reason in ‘reviewing’ a crap funnel building App or Theme or Plugin OR the super pricey ones. All of these below get my endorsement, it’s just a question of which one is right for you in YOUR business…

I am an Internet Marketer based in Normandy, France and London, England and haven't had a 'real' job since 2006. I love my dogs, graphic design, good food and wine and the Greek Islands - not necessarily in that order. Hit me up any time via my various social media platforms when you have time.

  1. I’m with you Clive… I prefer to have control and the responsibility that goes with it. I don’t care for the uncertainty of a company in control of my business assets. Thank you for taking the time to keep us informed.

  2. Thanks for the info Clive. I like to have full control where ever possible when it comes to my business.
