Ontraport Advantages

Integrated Landing Pages

Email marketing is merely the first step towards attracting customers. Landing pages pick up where your emails leave off, demonstrating the value of your products and services to ultimately entice a customer to buy. There are many great page-building tools out there, but integrating landing pages into your marketing automation suite allows you to:

It’s already integrated into your marketing automation suite so you can launch campaigns and find success much faster than if you’re using third-party landing page tools that you need to integrate.
You can easily create beautiful pages with our fully flexible and customizable landing page templates, or use our drag-and-drop builder to lay out a page from scratch.
You can skip the steep learning curve with our intuitive user interface that offers simple settings and a variety of pre-designed pieces, such as call-to-action buttons and icons.
If you do want to adjust details, you can manipulate anything from colors, sizes and fonts to more complex visual characteristics, such as gradients, the size of the padding around your images, drop shadows, and more.
You can track site traffic and page visitors at any given time and automate what happens next, such as sending a task to a sales rep for immediate follow-up.
You can personalize your pages using customer information from your CRM database.
You can see where your page visitors are coming from so you can make strategic decisions about your marketing campaigns.
You can seamlessly trigger next steps based on actions visitors take on your page, such as delivering a product after the visitor makes a purchase or adding an email address to your list after someone opts in on your form.

Full Ecommerce Suite

Integrating with a third-party app to sell your goods and services is neither easy nor cheap. Ontraport is as much an ecommerce solution as it is a marketing toolkit. Quickly build customizable order forms that sync with your contact database; easily manage your shopping carts and payment gateways for a seamless purchase process; offer flexible payment options to reduce friction, and safely automate payment processes such as credit card declines with ease.

Matt Knight, Buyers Agent

“All of my contact database is stored in Ontraport. The combination of landing pages, lead magnet delivery, nurture campaigns and autoresponders plus advanced contact tagging means that I don't need anything else. More advanced than MailChimp, less intimidating than SendGrid, etc. I love it.”
