ClickFunnels vs Leadpages: Content editor
Both ClickFunnels and Leadpages give you visual, drag-and-drop builders to help you design your pages and opt-ins using a code-free interface.
If you’ve ever used a WordPress page builder plugin, it’s the same basic idea and you’ll feel right at home in both editors.
Showing you every single feature in the editor in a short section is difficult. So rather than trying to show you screenshots, I found some nice video tutorials for each tool’s editor that will not just give you a look at all the features, but also the experience of what it’s like to work with each editor.
The drag-and-drop ClickFunnels editor uses a grid-based system to control your layout. You can set up your design using sections, rows, and columns. Then, you can add content using various content widgets.
You’ll get content widgets for basic elements like text, buttons, and images, as well as more advanced elements like countdown timers, pricing tables, forms, Facebook Comments, and more.
For each element, you’ll get detailed style options to control its colors, content, styles, etc.

The drag-and-drop Leadpages editor uses the same grid-based approach as ClickFunnels. That is, you can set up the layout of your page using rows and columns and then add content using modules.
Just like ClickFunnels, you’ll get a solid set of both simple building block modules as well as advanced modules for things like opt-in forms, payment forms, countdown timers, progress bars, social share buttons, and more.
You also get some useful integration blocks, such as Calendly and OpenTable embeds.
Overall, the Leadpages editor definitely looks more modern than the ClickFunnels editor, though both are quite functional. It also does a good job of keeping as many settings as possible inside the editor. For example, you can both add a form module and also configure its integrations without leaving the editor.

Winner for the content editor: Leadpages – but only by a slight margin
Picking a winner in terms of the editor is tough to do because a lot of this comes down to personal preference.
Personally, I prefer Leadpages because it feels more modern and intuitive. For example, it keeps a lot of its settings options inline (instead of forcing you to use a sidebar), which feels like it lets you design content more quickly.
However, that’s just me – you might prefer ClickFunnels for a different reason, which is why
