What makes a good Shopify page builder?

So I have an interesting perspective on this topic. Earlier in my career, I was working at a digital agency where we primarily helped ecommerce companies optimize their websites and Facebook ads. Optimizing websites and conversion rate optimization was an interesting topic to me because it was a blend of two things I like most: tech (fast website, etc.) and psychology (copy, conversion rates, etc).

So once I left the agency and started building software to solve similar challenges for Shopify stores, I quickly found interest in the landing page builders on the market.

From my time at this agency, what I learned is that people change/tweak/customize their website for one of two reasons.

To increase conversion rates (more revenue) or to better tell their story (improve design).

These are the two main factors I will look at when reviewing these Shopify app page builders.

Which app helps you better accomplish these?

Let's find out!

Who wins the "best free Shopify landing page builder" award?

Well, there was only one but that'd be Page Fly!

Page Fly is the only Shopify app that offers a free plan (with limited functionality) but well worth a try if you're a store just getting started and don't have the budget for the other paid apps listed here.


Where's the breakdown of the worst landing page builder?

We previously included a section on landing page tools that you should avoid using, however, we removed it for two reasons.

1) Landing page tools are difficult to build and it's not very nice to ridicule the ones that are glitchy or known to malfunction. Rather than doing that, we'll just showcase the app companies that work extra  hard to build a great product (which includes everyone on this list!).

2) The app was also removed when the Shopify app store got updated.

So sorry if that's what you came looking for, as it is still in the title of this article. 🙈
