Options for creating a landing page with WordPress
Before I go any further, let me explain that you don't need to use a WordPress plugin to create a landing page. This is because there are three options for creating a landing page in WordPress.
- Use a WordPress theme
- Use WordPress plug-ins.
- Design, code, and design on your own on WordPress.
You can create a landing page in a variety of ways.
Each one is explained one by one.

You can also create a landing page with a WordPress theme; one of the most popular WordPress themes on the site Themeforest, where many WordPress themes are sold, is the X Theme.
The X Theme comes with built-in customization features. You can easily create a beautiful landing page.

On the other hand, you may be limited in the landing page designs you can create.

So, in this article, I will show you my recommended WordPress page builder and how easy it is to actually create a landing page.
Recommended WordPress page builder plugins for LP creation
Now, let's take a look at some WordPress page builder plugins that are recommended for LP creation.
We have carefully selected five WordPress plugins that we recommend. All of them are easy to use, so if you find them "interesting" after reading their descriptions, please give them a try.

As of this writing, 5% of websites are announced to be built with Elementor.
Speaking of WordPress page builders that allow you to build pages intuitively.Brizyis one of them. It also allows you to create landing pages freely. Personally, I use it more than Elementor. By the way, I am a paid user of Brizy.
Brizy has been released in April 2018 and is still being updated regularly. Each update adds new features and continues to improve and make it even easier to use, which is why I trust Brizy so highly.
I wrote a detailed explanation.Explanatory articlefor more information.
OptimizePressis a WordPress page builder that is loved by marketers and e-commerce site managers.
What sets OptimizePress apart from the other WordPress page builders on this page is that it is not "just" a WordPress plugin for creating landing pages.
This is a highly functional plugin that allows you to build sales funnels and even membership sites on WordPress.
Hmm? What does that mean? Let's take a look at some of the main features of OptimizePress.

One of the world's favorite WordPress page builders isDivi BuilderAlso, don't forget about You can build a professional looking page in just a few minutes without writing any code.
Originally, Divi Builder was only available for the Divi WordPress theme by Elegant Themes. As a result of continuous improvement and evolution, it now works with any WordPress theme.

You can easily adjust the page. So even if you don't know how to code or are not good at complicated operations, you can easily adjust rows and columns and customize the design.
Before explaining Qubely, let me explain about Gutenberg, which is essential to understand Qubely.
First of all, Gutenberg is the name of the block editor that has been available since WordPress 5.0, which was released on December 6, 2018. In a nutshell, switching to Gutenberg has changed the way we used to write text in the WordPress post screen; Gutenberg has made it much more intuitive to create pages than before.
And.Qubelyis a block editor for Gutenberg that allows you to create more versatile and customizable pages. In brief, Qubely allows you to use templates, layouts and blocks that are not available in the regular Gutenberg.
This Qubely allows you to create customized pages on the editing screen that you would not normally be able to create.
Why not use a domestic WordPress page builder?
Incidentally, there are several page builder plugins in Japan that allow you to create landing pages.
I'm Japanese, so I've tried domestic WordPress page builders. However, I stopped using them because they are basically not as sophisticated as Elementor or Brizy.
Some of the WordPress page builders made in Japan are still being sold that have not been updated in almost two years. For that reason, IWe recommend Elementor and Brizy, which are updated regularly.I'm working on it.
It's personally hard for me to give a bad review of Japanese WordPress page builders. However, in the current situation, if you want to pay 10,000 yen for a Japanese WordPress page builder, it's 10 times better to use Elementor which is free. That's my honest opinion.
Points to consider when choosing a WordPress page builder
So far, I've introduced WordPress page builder plugins that I recommend.
If you choose any other WordPress page builder than this one, there are seven points you should be aware of.
ease of use
One of the most important factors in choosing a WordPress page builder. That is "ease of use".
It's a pain to keep using a WordPress page builder that's hard to use. It's better to choose a page builder that you feel comfortable using.
Some WordPress page builders are touted as "feature-rich," but even if they have a lot of features, you won't use all of them.
That's why.That I don't feel stressed when I use it.is much more important.
Reliability of the developer
No matter how good a WordPress page builder looks, don't jump on it right away. This is my advice to you.
The WordPress page builder I signed up for and used in 2018 hasn't been updated in over 2 years already. However, it is still being sold. There is no improvement or update at all, so the development is completely abandoned.
When choosing a WordPress page builder, be sure to check the developer as well. If the plugin's changelog shows that it hasn't been updated in more than a few months, or that no features have been added, avoid it.
I can't speak for all of them, but that WordPress page builderIf it is being developed by a team of only a few people (or by one person), it also tends to be abandoned.Teams that have not been in development for a long time are especially likely to go out of business.
The response you get when you contact the developer is another point to look out for. If you do not receive a reply, you should also avoid them.
All of the WordPress page builders I have featured on this page have been tested to ensure the reliability of their developers. Please be assured that I have introduced them after watching their activities from their inception to the present.
To choose a WordPress page builder, you should also check the size (weight). The more feature-packed the WordPress page builder is, the larger it tends to be.
The large size of the WordPress page builder means thatThe display speed of the site slows down when a plugin is installed.
For example, Elementor and Brizy, which are introduced on this page, also slow down the page loading speed.
If you search, you will find articles such as "Elementor does not slow down the display speed" and "Brizy is fast". However, it is slower than nothing. This is a fact.
Our recommendation is to choose a WordPress page builder with as low a load as possible.
One of the most important factors is pricing.
There are different prices for WordPress page builders.
When you choose a page builder, you should first look at how much it will cost you per year. Brizy is also $49.
OptimizePress is $99 per year. That's expensive. (I think it's well worth it for the features, though).
As you can see, there are differences in the fees.
Can it be integrated with other apps?
Now, whether the WordPress page builder is compatible with these integration services or not. This is important.
If supported, you can easily connect the WordPress page builder with other third-party apps.
I'll explain what exactly it does. For example, in WordPress Page Builder Brizy, you can integrate with Mailchimp. If you create an email signup form in your landing page, you can automatically add users who subscribe to your email list directly from the form to your Mailchimp email list.
Also check if it can be integrated with other marketing services.
