OptimizePress 2.0

Create Customizable Landing Pages With OptimizePress

OptimizePress 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 OptimizePress 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 OptimizePress 2.0.

I’ve been an OptimizePress 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.


OptimizePress 2.0 has taken the creation of landing pages, sales pages and squeeze pages to an entirely new level.

This is hands down one of the best purchases I have ever made when it comes to plugins or anything else marketing related.

The time it has saved me is incredible and the fact that it comes with a membership plugin saved me between $100-$300.

This is simply incredible.

I used this plugin to build targeted landing pages for a marketing agency I used to work for and the results were great, despite the fact that I’m not a web designer.


  • Theme version – use it to power your entire blog.
  • Membership plugin.
  • Powerful drag and drop editor.
  • Split testing of individual elements.
  • Offer countdown timer.
  • Image with Javascript alert.

Coming Soon Pro by SeedProd

Add A Coming Soon Page With SeedProd

Coming Soon Pro is one of the main plugins I install whenever I start building a new website.

I use the plugin to display a coming soon page so that nobody visiting the site can see what I’m doing with the site behind the scenes.

The added benefit here is that I can use my coming soon page to build my email list. And it’s incredibly easy to setup.

This plugin is also useful after a website has been launched because your coming soon page can be assigned its own URL and used as a regular landing page.

You can also display a maintenance mode page when you’re tweaking the live site.

I usually disable the plugin once I’ve launched a website but I’ll reactivate it whenever I need to use maintenance mode. After launch I use a different tool for building landing pages. I usually go with LeadPages because it’s so fast/user friendly (and it takes care of hosting).


  • Various access controls.
  • Allows client access.
  • Maintenance mode.
  • Basic customization options.
  • Advanced customization via CSS.
  • Use your coming soon page as a dedicated landing page.
  • Integrates with most popular email providers.
  • You can save opt-ins to your database and export.
  • Run a viral contest from your coming soon page.

Price: Starts from $29.

WordPress Landing Pages

Capture Leads For Free With WordPress Landing Pages

There are a bunch of free landing page plugins available, a lot of the ones I came across required paid memberships to work beyond a free trial.

WordPress Landing Pages will allow you to create landing pages for free and has some interesting features like A/B split testing, conversion rate tracking and a nice selection of templates.

The downside is that integration with popular mailing list providers starts at $25 each; some like GetResponse are $35. This does mean that it’s a bit more worthwhile spending the money on OptimizePress if you were considering this as an option.

Note: when testing this plugin I did find it quite tedious to customize and it wasn’t all too user friendly in comparison to other landing page plugins I’ve used. That said, It’s one of the best free plugins available for this.


  • A/B Split testing.
  • Pre-populate forms with visitor information.
  • Several templates included (other templates can be purchased).
  • Integration with popular email providers (cost per integration starting at $25).

Price: Free but integrations with email providers start from $25 each.

Which landing page plugin should you choose?

I’ve listed a number of plugins and it’s important to note that these plugins are best suited to different circumstances.

In fact, it’s not strange to actually use more than one of the plugins that I’ve listed above.

For example, I use LeadPages for the majority of my landing pages purely because it’s so fast. I use OptimizePress for when I need something built from the ground up or which needs more customization. I also use Thrive Content Builder for the times when I need something less resource intensive than OptimizePress.

Below I have listed a number of situations where you mind find particular plugins work better for you than others.

Value for money

Comparing features to pricing, Thrive Content Builder comes out on top here. You can get the license for all of your sites for $67 and while this price will go up (not sure when), the usual $97 price still works out great in comparison to the likes of OptimizePress. A single license works out at $49.

Although with OptimizePress you do get a membership plugin and a theme version but the trade-off is a more resource intensive plugin.

Hosting and digital asset delivery taken care of for you

If you have a lot of free downloads that you make available for your email subscribers, LeadPages is a great option.

The problem with having a lot of free downloads for subscribers is that you find yourself having to create multiple pages for each one to be downloaded from. With LeadPages, you can assign a free download to each landing page.

After someone signs up to your email list, they’ll get an email with the download link.

The other thing is that LeadPages takes care of hosting your landing pages too so you’ll save on bandwidth here.

Easy landing page customization

I find Thrive Content Builder makes it much easier to tweak landing pages than anything else and it’s also very easy to add additional elements to your pages.

OptimizePress is another good option here, you get the option to add more elements but it’s a more resource intensive plugin.

Straight forward A/B split testing

WordPress Landing Pages does allow split testing but I find it a very limiting plugin due to how integration’s soon cause the price to spiral out of control.

LeadPages has built in split testing, it is on the $67/month plan but I find that worthwhile because of how much time it saves me. The last split test I started took me 2 minutes to create and that included tweaking the copy.

If you want a wide variety of templates to choose from

LeadPages comes with 70+ templates out of the box but they also add a few new templates every month and they’re all based on templates that are getting results.

OptimizePress comes with around 30 templates out of the box but you can subscribe to their monthly club which will give you access to over 100 templates with more being added every month. I find there is greater variety here.

Both LeadPages and OptimizePress now have a marketplace where you can purchase extra templates or sell those which you’ve created yourself.

A light weight landing page plugin that is easy to use

Page load times are extremely important but you also need the right combination of features that don’t restrict you to the point where it makes using a landing page plugin more time consuming than it should be.

So for a light weight plugin that has enough features to make your life easier and save you time, Thrive Content Builder is a solid option.

You also get access to instructional videos if you need any help.

An alternative would be LeadPages. It comes with a light weight plugin and it’s easier to get a landing page setup than with the Thrive Content Builder.

The main reason it’s easier is because customization options are limited, it’s great for ease of use but sacrifices the ability to do extra customizations. There’s also a monthly/yearly price tag, whereas Thrive Content Builder is far more affordable.

More leads, email subscribers and sales – it all starts here

Whether you want to create a squeeze page to build your email list or create a high converting sales page to promote your latest product – the plugins mentioned above will help you.

They will take the complexity out of creating any landing pages and help you create eye-catching designs that convert well.

All so you can focus on positioning your products and offers, creating compelling content and helping you get the results you deserve.

No more relying on developers and designers, you will be in complete control.

Identify the features you need, find a plugin from the above list which fits and get started.

  • Tom Jamieson

    Nice list here, Adam! I have recently dl’d WordPress Landing Pages, but haven’t had a chance to dig into it yet. Glad to see it made your list though, which gives me more confidence in it. Thanks for sharing these tools and have a great week!

    • Adam Connell

      Hey Tom, thanks for checking this out and dropping a comment.

      There’s not much in terms of free landing page plugins, but WordPress landing pages is the only free one worth trying.

      The premium plugins offer more functionality, but damn it’s not bad for free and there is a leads plugin that integrates with it too (also free I think).


      • Damiano Development

        AuthorityPro 3.0 website is not been renewed. ??

        • Adam Connell

          Wow, looks like they forgot to renew their domain. Seems a bit odd, it’s usually difficult to not setup the auto renew for a domain with most domain registrars now.

          I’ve removed it from the list for the time being.

          Thanks for the heads up!

  • Reginald Chan

    Hi Adam!

    Great list mate. I heard a lot about both optimize press and premise. And heck! You are using it too! Oh wow :)

    Now, I am curious mate. I had been like (2 weeks or so) from your blog and so many difference! That’s why you are so busy huh.

    Back to topic, I feel Optimize Press is a better bet since cost is always an issue for me. However, I am a huge fan of Genesis and Premise just sounds pretty fine too. Like what you said, maybe it boils down to what you really want.

    Off topic mate, Ditch CommentLuv for Disqus? o.O

    Have a great day mate.


    • Adam Connell

      Hey Reginald,

      Thanks buddy.

      Hell yeah, just rolled out my new home page using Optimize Press 2.0 … the add-ons/shortcodes for it are epic … there’s something for every occasion.

      That’s it my friend, past 2 weeks I’ve been so busy, changed a fair few things, finally finished my first short e-book and mapping out a lot of post ideas for the future and for other projects.

      I’d agree with you there, Optimize Press is a full on rebuild, it’s not just an updated version and the features are insane. It is a clear winner over Premise, but Premise is still an incredible plugin.

      Yep, had to life boat my comments to Disqus – the reason is because Scrapebox released their ‘learning poster’ which broke GASP and most other spam blocking plugins .. I went from like 1-2 spam comments a day (manual comments I think) to 60+ automated comments and I don’t have the time to moderate all the spam comments.

      I moved to Disqus and spam comments went from 60+ to 0.

      The thing is, I still really believe in Comment Luv as a plugin, it’s a great way of encouraging comments and the email notifications are amazing .. so many great features.

      There’s probably a better solution but I didn’t have the time to find it so I went for the easy option.

      I miss Comment Luv!

      Thanks buddy, you too!

  • Adam Dukes

    A great write up, Adam! I have been a huge fan of Hybrid Connect. I installed WP Landing Pages (along with their other 2 plugins — WP CTA & WP Leads). A great concept that somewhat rivals Hubspot. I have deactivated both the Leads & CTA plugins as I was having so many issues.

    I have been using WP Landing Pages since January and my opt ins have come to a stop on my site through Hybrid Connect. I was converting at 8.5% (before installing WP Landing Pages), now I am less than 0.5%. I have 6 or 7 landing pages set up. so it’s not like I can just delete the plugin. Looks like it’s time to invest in OP 2.0.

    The last three months have been VERY frustrating.

    • Adam Connell

      Thanks Adam!

      I like the idea of the Inbound Now plugins too but I didn’t find them too straight forward so stuck with the Optimize Press system.

      Damn, that’s quite a decline – have you got goal tracking setup in GA to find out what the cause may be?

      Sometimes certain websites that are referring traffic can be responsible for a large number of subscribers.

      If not, I’ve got a tutorial on how to set that up here:

      Definitely – I think you’ll find the OP system really straight forward.

      They also have a monthly club where they regularly add templates – I’ve found some great templates there.

      Hope you manage to get your subscribers back to where it should be!


      • Adam Dukes

        I have not. Thank you for the link to the tutorial checking it out now. Something I have meaning to do, just haven’t got around to it.

        • Adam Connell

          No problem, Adam. Happy to help.

  • Bonnie

    Thanks for creating this post Adam, I am a newbie and trying to find a good squeeze page for my site at – I outsourced the website design, and they have used their own theme, so I hope the free plugin you recommend is compatible! I loved reading this post, and will sign up for more.

    • Adam Connell

      No worries, Bonnie.

      Glad you found the post useful. The free plugin should work but it’s important to note that it’s a very basic plugin.

      I checked out your site and it looks like you have a paid plugin called Instabuilder installed. This might be more effective than using the free plugin.

      Thanks for signing up – great to have you as a subscriber :)

  • Nokthula Madondo

    Hi Adam

    Thanks for putting this information together.

    So incredibly helpful. I have checked out the plugins that you are recommending and the only downside for me is that monthly fee attached to some of them, so naturally I gravitated towards authority pro 3 because there are no recurring membership fees, or monthly fees, that definitely ticks my box.

    Then there is the free word press plugin, which pretty much does a good job too (I am not sure if it includes sale pages) but for a free plugin, it packs a punch.

    I am literally starting chapter 1 in list building, and with that in mind, which one should I go for?

    I don’t mind paying the $27 for a single license for authority pro 3. But I am torn between the two options. If I go ahead and grab authority pro 3, will it be a good investment or should I just start with the free wordpress plugin?

    Which would you choose?

    • Adam Connell

      Hi Nokthula,

      My pleasure.

      Your comment has made me realize that I need to update this post and add some sort of decision matrix that shows which plugins fit which circumstances best.

      Bare with me, I’ll have the post updated soon and I think the update will be very useful for others too :)


      • Nokthula

        Hey Adam, thanks for your quick response. I literally can’t wait for your advice on this. I know it’s going to be off the hook.

        You should write a book on this Adam, seriously… The mechanic side of blogging needs a voice like yours. It’s dark, murky and scary for a new blogger…. Sadly it happens to be costly as well, so make a miscalculated move and you have a foot in your mouth.

        Also the advice out there doesn’t cater for the beginning and growth phase – because you are going to grow and you will outgrow certain things, so you need to know what’s going to grow with you or won’t walk a mile with you. Hence my question to you about which option should I take.

        Anyway: this subject happens to be the most difficult thing about blogging and you literally spend hours researching it. And research just pulls up all these useless forums that were written back when the Internet started gaining momentum.

        So when I saw your name in the search results, I jumped for joy because I knew I would get great advice, with no stone left unturned. I didn’t even bother reading anything else, I trust you implicitly.

        So please consider a guide of some sort on this.

        Ps: you didn’t mention lead pages??? And it’s the ish right now… Everybody is on that bandwagon and conversion rates are on another level

      • Adam Connell

        My pleasure :)

        That’s such a great idea, it’s that side of thing that is definitely the most daunting. Very true about it being costly, I’ve spent a crazy amount in the process of finding my way through all these tools.

        Great point about the growth phase and that’s so right, it’s so easy to outgrow certain tools.

        I’m really glad you were able to find this post at the right moment and I appreciate you placing your trust in me!

        Ok, so what I’ve done is rewrite most of this post, I’ve removed a few plugins and added a few others that I’ve tested since I published the initial post. I’ve added a sort of decision matrix at the bottom of the post based on various situations and needs too.

        Going back to your initial question…

        The free plugin is handy for getting started but the paid add-ons mean that just for the ability to integrate with a platform like GetResponse or MailChimp, there’s a fee. I believe this plugin is something that you could outgrow very quick.

        It’s a similar situation with Authority Pro, it’s got some good features and is a good starting point but the editors not as easy to use as some others.

        One of the newer plugins that I added to the list could be a better fit, Thrive Content Builder. It’s currently $49 for a single license so it is almost double the price of Authority Pro. But, the designs are better and it has a live editor that is far easier to use.

        In comparison to Optimize Press, it’s not got as many elements to add to pages and not as many templates but it’s more lightweight and still very customizable.

        I’m a big fan of LeadPages right now, I added that too. Incredible platform, wish it was more easy to add elements to existing pages though. I find myself coming back to using plugins like Thrive or OptimizePress every so often.

        Hope the above has helped.

        Also, I love your idea about creating a book on this, I’ve got some other books I’m working on which I need to complete first but I definitely see a lot of value in creating something that covers off all the technical setup.

        Would love to get your thoughts about this and find out what technical hurdles you’ve over come or which you’re facing, this could form a great basis for what I’ll cover in the book.

        I’ll drop you an email in a moment :)


  • Sue Anne Dunlevie

    Hi, Adam,

    This is a very complete and thorough review.

    I only use LeadPages and am thinking about also using OptimizePress 2.0. I tried the first version of OptimizePress when I was a new blogger and it was too difficult for me to do myself. It’s good to hear that the new version is so much easier to use.


    • Adam Connell

      Thanks Sue :)

      OptimizePress is great, I usually use it when I find LeadPages templates limiting.

      The drag and drop interface is really good and has a lot of elements you can add.

      Thrive Content Builder is another good option, it’s more light weight and super easy to use. There aren’t as many elements as OptimizePress (or as many templates) but the fact it’s more lightweight is always good.

      Talk soon,

      • Sue Anne Dunlevie

        Thanks for your input, Adam! I always appreciate it.

        I’ll also check out Thrive Content Builder today.


        • Adam Connell

          My pleasure, Sue – happy to help!


  • Adam Connell

    Wow, thanks Nokthula :)

    I’m really glad you’ve found the updated version helpful! My mission has been accomplished!

    I wish I had a webinar or ecourse in place already, it’s on my to-do list though.

    Completely understand your frustration with the tech speak – I’m hoping that I can put together something that will really help with understanding the technical side and your feedback will be great!

    My pleasure – feel free to drop me an email whenever you think of something :)

  • Adam Connell

    Hi Ryan,

    That’s it exactly – clean, clear and concise is what it’s all about.

    Definitely, I like the idea of attracting folks who vibe with the same presentation.

    When your design and your content are in tune, that really makes a difference.

    My pleasure, Ryan. Great to see you back :) Thanks for sharing and I hope you had a rocking weekend!


  • Mark Debono

    Thanks for the tips Adam. You certainly cut through a lot of the crap there is out there.

    • Adam Connell

      Thanks Mark, happy to help!

  • Steven Lucas

    Great list of options as well as unbiased comparisons. Still a rare thing these days – so much honestly claimed and so little displayed in some cases. Bodes well for the rest of this site. Many thanks Adam.

    • Adam Connell

      Thanks Steven – glad you’ve found it useful and I appreciate the kind words!

  • Phil Meyer

    Hi Adam, thanks for the unbiased info – it’s quite refreshing and a good read. In my search for a decent marketing-related page builder plugin I came across WP Profit Builder ( ), the sales page of which has left me very impressed indeed. Just wanted to ask whether you might have checked it out yourself?

    • Adam Connell

      Hi Phil, no problem at all. Glad you’ve found this useful.

      I haven’t checked it out myself, I agree with you. The sales page does look very impressive. Need to check this out, very keen to see how this compares with the likes of Thrive, OP and LP.


  • Иван Тулин

    Good list of plugins! Thanks.

    • Adam Connell

      My pleasure!

  • Alex Levashov

    Great review Adam, helped me in the selection. After reading it I’ve decided to use Thrive Themes Content Builder, mainly because my needs are not extremely sophisticated and I am not a big fun to pay subscription fee for this kind of solution.

    Here are 5 cents from my couple days of initial experience to use it:

    1. While Content Builder is less easy to use than it is promised, after some practice I’ve managed to build a landing page that looks OK, so I am fine with this part.

    2. The challenge for me was to use a simple contact form, I have a page where I want to collect contact details (it is order request page), so I don’t want to use something like Mailchimp or other eDM platform that requires double opt-in. I had Contact forms as a part of Jetpack installed and they didn’t work with Thrive Content Builder. Support couldn’t help, so I have to try another way to resolve the problem and installed alternative plug-in for contact forms – Contact Form 7. It is a bit clunky and has old-school interface, but at least works with Thrive Content Builder (while I can’t customise it’s look and feel there).

    3. With Contact Form 7, since it has no Thank You page, setting up tracking with Google Analytic isn’t very obvious, I again spend a fair bit of time to research how to do it, For those who wonder here is a link to post in my blog with a kind of step-by-step tutorial –

    4. In overall while there were some hurdles I am fine with Thrive Content Builder, will see how it work.


    • Adam Connell

      Hi Alex,

      Thanks for sharing your experience with us.

      Glad you were able to find a contact form solution that works. I hear Ninja Forms is also good, but I haven’t used it myself.

      Really appreciate you sharing the tutorial on how to setup goal tracking with GA using no thank you page – I think that will be really helpful for others.


  • Ankit yadav

    Great post :)

    But I have a question..

    I am a beginner blogger and am looking for free plugins for landing page, email subscription. Now I do understand that the free plugins would offer limited features at best.

    But there has to be a few plugins that provide the basic functionality and can be used till one starts earning enough to use premium plugins with advanced features.

    Thank you for your time.

    (P.S. – Just to make things clear, I own a self hosted WordPress blog. So I am looking for WordPress plugins.)

    • Adam Connell

      Thanks Ankit :)

      I really haven’t found a free landing page plugin that does the job well – there is always some sort of restriction.

      You could try the free plugin I mentioned above, but there’s a cost attached to that as well – more so in the time it’ll take for you to create a page. Also they charge for integration’s to email providers, whereas the paid plugins are often much quicker to use (your time is valuable) and they work with most popular email providers.


      • Ankit yadav

        Thank you for the clarification. Have a good day my friend. :)

        • Adam Connell

          My pleasure!

          Thanks, have a great day too :)

  • Nicole

    Do you know how to use a LeadPage as your Coming Soon page? I currently have a Coming Soon plugin (Ultimate Coming Soon Page) but can’t figure out how to integrate my lead page. Thanks!

    • Adam Connell

      Hi Nicole, if you’re using LeadPages, they have some specific coming soon templates you can use, then it’s just a case of using their plugin to set the page as your home page until your website is finished.

      In that case you won’t need the ultimate coming soon page plugin.

      The downside to that is that the coming soon plugin would block access to anyone viewing the site who isn’t logged in – that isn’t a feature LeadPages has, although it may not have much of an impact if the site hasn’t launched yet.

      Hope this helps!

  • Gabriele

    Hi Adam and thanks for your really usefull suggestion! do you think we could use optimizepress within zoho crm and zoho campaign? if it s not possible do you know anyother tool who can permit it?


    • Adam Connell

      Hi Gabriele,

      I’m not sure, I have no experience with Zoho. OP doesn’t have API level integration but I haven’t seen any plugin mention Zoho specifically. It would be best dropping the developers an email to be sure.

  • Justin

    Hi Adam, As good as it is it would make sense to point out that the landing page side of Optimize Press is NOT a plugin but a THEME.

    For example I love the Divi theme from Elegant themes and would like a good landing page system which works well with it but I can’t use OP.

    Thrive looks nice though, would you run into the same issues or will it plays nice with other themes?

    • Adam Connell

      Hi Justin,

      OptimizePress is a plugin and it comes with a theme too. So whether you want to use it with an existing theme or to replace your current theme – you can do it.

      So you could use it with Divi, in fact I used OptimizePress to build landing pages for an agency I used to work for. We used the Divi theme + OptimizePress.

      Thrive is a plugin too, so you’ll be able to use it with any theme you like. Same goes for all the other plugins listed in this post.

      The bonus of Thrive is that you can build pages on your current theme’s layout, rather than it looking entirely different.

      If you want a completely different looking page, you can use the landing page templates or start from a blank page if you prefer.

      • Justin

        Good to know, I may give it a try. Thanks Adam!

        • Adam Connell

          No worries, Justin!

  • Justin

    Have now bought Thrive and I have to say it’s looking really very good!
    Excellent tip Adam :-)

    • Adam Connell

      Great to hear it’s looking good, Justin. :)

    Adam thanks for nice review. I have optimize press 2.0 plugin and I use it with Genesis framework. As you said it is resource intensive. I don’t use its membership plugin or theme.

    Question: I hear a lot of good things on Divi from Elegant themes. Which one you find more useful Divi or Thrive content builder.

    My requirements:
    1. ecommerce store.
    2. store will have a blog.
    3. I will need squeeze pages, sales pages on the same domain.

    I am thinking use Genesis with woocommerce plugin OR genesis ecommerce theme/woo ecommerce theme for store.
    Genesis for blogging.
    Squeeze pages, sales pages: Thrive content or Divi.

    Your feedback is appreciated. Thanks.

      Hi Roger,

      Thanks, glad you found the review helpful.

      Divi is a great theme, probably one of the most functional that I’ve come across but while you can create page layouts, it’s not really designed to create landing pages/squeeze pages/sales pages.

      Having used the editor in both Divi and Thrive Content Builder, I think you would find Thrive’s to be faster and better equipped for what you need.

      You could then go with a Genesis theme that’s designed to work with Woo commerce – I like the Genesis Framework, it’s extremely light weight.

      Hope this helps!

    Adam, Thanks for the reviews. Nice objective style. We have a number of clients that are after landing / conversion pages. So with an Agency hat on they look slightly different as we need to use them on a number of sites, Thrive is a reasonable solution at $199 / year. Also a a note the base price seem to have increased from $49 to $59. One other reader mentioned ProfitBuilder and they have an attractive Agency plan and a 60 days warranty so might take a punt on them…

      No worries, Alastair.

      Thanks for the heads up about the price change, I’ve just updated the post.

      ProfitBuilder is a nice option, I’ve used it myself and the price is very reasonable.

      It is very much like a cheaper OptimizePress although with slightly fewer elements.

      In terms of usability I prefer Thrive. I find that it takes me a lot longer to make similar changes in WP Profit Builder.

      One of my team recently wrote a review, here’s the link – Will be adding it to this post soon.

      All the best,
