Are you looking for an unbiased review of Convertri and ClickFunnels?
Well, stay tuned!
The biggest secret to running a successful online business is: getting the right traffic, converting it to leads, and turning leads into customers. Plain and simple. I know it’s easier said than done.
But the trick is in doing this efficiently, hence the popularity of sales funnel builders. Both Convertri and ClickFunnels offer great high-converting sales funnels but that doesn’t mean you can use either for your business.
Convertri refers to themselves as the world’s fastest funnel builder. You’ll have to read to the end to see if they’re worth the salt. But I have to say the sales funnel pages with Convertri have lightning speed.
ClickFunnels, on the other hand, is a sales funnel builder that gives you all the tools you need to market, sell, and deliver your products online, under one convenient platform.
Honestly, we can’t categorize Convertri as an all-in-one solution but it beats ClickFunnels in several aspects.
Let’s dive into the good, the bad, and the ugly!
What do we like about Convertri vs ClickFunnels?
- It has a very easy-to-use UX that you learn on the go even without prior experience. Navigation is a breeze.
- It comes with ready-made content blocks that make it easy to create sales funnels. All you need to do is drag and drop and you’ll have ready and functional funnels in seconds.
- The platform comes with powerful, flexible, and mobile-ready capabilities. As a result, you’re able to increase your conversion rate for mobile devices.
- You get awesome page loading speed for anything you create on Convertri. The average load speed is about 0.9 seconds. Say goodbye to buffering pages.
- They have a unique feature the Page Importer that makes it easy to recreate all the funnels you had on a different funnel building software in a jiffy. You don’t have to create your previous funnels from scratch.
- You get quite a huge library of funnel templates for you to choose from. You don’t have to learn a single line of code to create a funnel.
- It has more solid marketing features for eCommerce business owners. A one-stop-shop platform for all your sales and marketing needs. You can promote your products, use upsells, downsells, order bumps, email marketing, and automation.
- It comes with a rich knowledge base. Funnel Flix is a champ in this section. People call it the ‘Netflix of marketing’ thanks to all the information available about running successful campaigns.
- It has an inbuilt membership site that allows you to profit from your skills.
One selling point of Convertri is a user-friendly and easy-to-use UI.
You can view all major features at a glance. Whether you’re an expert or novice, it’s easy to maximize Convertri’s functionality. It also boasts an intuitive page builder with a drag-and-drop editor.
But their biggest selling point is loading speed. Navigation is a breeze!
Everyone hates slow and buffering interfaces. No glitches as you work within the sales funnel software. In addition, the load speed of the pages you create is blistering.
The magic number to open a page is 0.9 seconds. ClickFunnels page speed ranges between 3-7 seconds.
So why are they so fast?
It’s the question of the hour.
Well, they have stress-tested everything and they use CDN (Content Delivery Network). You won’t have any visitors experiencing lagging or downtime even with 100K visitors.
Over to ClickFunnels.
Yes, the interface has an easy-to-use drag and drop editor that allows you to create funnels fast. And the dashboard is clean allowing you to see their major 3 tabs at a glance.
But things start getting overwhelming when you click on the tabs. They are all loaded with features and everything can be a pain in the butt if you don’t exercise patience.
Good thing they have a 7-day onboarding challenge to help you kick-start your journey. After that, you’ll get the hang of it and continue learning as you go.
Another thing that bugged me was the loading speed of the interface. It reminded me of ActiveCampaign’s glitches. It can take up to 10 seconds to load. A bit disappointing when you’ve come straight from Convertri.
Since the platform comes with raw power and flexibility, the loading speed might not be a deal-breaker.
Winner: Convertri. No learning curve needed. Everything is straightforward and the interface loading speed seals the deal.
Funnel building is at the core of Convertri.
Convertri’s landing page builder is like a blank canvas for you to paint whatever you want. No rows, no grid, no columns, you basically have limitless styles to choose from.
Oh! The cherry on top, it’s compatible with Google Font Library so you can add hundreds of fonts to your pages.
Any designer would bag it up. You have custom scripts, HTML, and CSS to create pages.
But even with zero design or coding skills, you can pick a funnel template from the huge library and use the drag-and-drop editor to customize as you see fit. They call it the free-form editor.
I discovered why they say they are the world’s fastest funnel builder. You can create pages in less than 30 seconds with ready-made content blocks. With this, creating a funnel from scratch isn’t rocket science.
You don’t have to use code or hire expensive developers to design high-converting landing pages. You have numerous page elements to use that can increase your conversion rate.
From countdown timers to CTA buttons, background videos, testimonials, Facebook comments, carousels, among others.
You can create lead generation funnels, webinar funnels, opt-in funnels, and so much more.
They even make it easier for you to import sales funnels that you’ve created using other sales funnel software. Page importer does the magic. ClickFunnels doesn’t have this cool feature.
But two things made me salute them. Mobile-ready pages and fast loading speed. More than 50% of internet traffic is from mobile phones. Convertri beats ClickFunnels in this aspect.
Mobile responsive pages are easy to design as you can pick where elements appear on the page. It allows mobile text scaling (you can scale your fonts to fit mobile screens) and automatic mobile conversion.
As we wrap up about Convertri, keep in mind that you can also create forms. From Pop-ups, Lightboxes and Conversion Bars.
ClickFunnels is for sure one of the best funnel builder software on the market today.
It’s the key to guiding your prospects to conversion. Any business owner selling digital or physical products online giving ClickFunnels a shot is a no-brainer.
Their drag-and-drop editor is intuitive and responsive helping you create funnels in a few minutes. You have more than 18 widgets and elements to give your pages the high-converting touch.
The entire process is easy peasy. Plug and play. Your work is simply dragging the elements and you’ll have highly personalized pages. From countdown timers to buttons, progress bars, and so much more.
If you don’t want to create funnels from scratch, they also have a huge library of templates that are refined by fire. All their templates are guaranteed to convert like clockwork.
Also, there is a ClickFunnels marketplace where you can buy funnels from different creators. But check the reviews before putting money on a funnel.
Well, you can also choose to add custom CSS on your pages to increase the functionality and design of your funnels.
Hey, and it’s like a lead generation goldmine. You get all types of pop-ups, exit-intent, scroll-based, time-based, and content-based popups.
Winner: Tie. If you want incredible speed and mobile-ready pages, Convertri is your best bet. If you’re looking for raw power and flexibility, ClickFunnels has that in spades.
When a business isn’t making sales, it slowly ceases to exist.
Convertri isn’t as loaded as ClickFunnels in this aspect. A bummer, I know but don’t cross it out yet.
When it comes to selling your products, you’ll do just fine. You get one front-end offer and 3 upsells. You get a second and third chance to woo your customers and reel them in.
You also have downsells and order bumps to offer your customers a little something on the side and ensure they can get it without going through the purchasing process again.
They have a pretty nice A/B testing feature that allows you to test page elements to make sure you make the most out of your sales funnels and landing pages. As a result, you save on leads that would have been lost by creating pages your audience don’t like.
I loved their shopping cart feature. They have a 2-step checkout process. With customers leaving their details as they make the purchase, you get the opportunity to retarget them if they abandon their cart. They support Stripe as a payment gateway but you can integrate with PayPal.
Not only that but you can set different payment plans including subscriptions and trial payments.
You have everything you need to take your sales to the next level. From one-click upsells to downsells, and order bumps.
They have a robust A/B testing feature that allows you to test the subject, images, CTAs, and the content to ensure you give your audience what appeals to them. Maximizing your ROI.
You get an in-built shopping cart feature so your customer’s shopping experience is safe in your store.
And when it comes to payment gateways, you get up to 3 payment gateways with the basic plan and 9 with the platinum. PayPal and Stripe are the most popular ones but you can add others.
ClickFunnels goes a bit further. They have a built-in membership area. You can monetize your skills and have people paying to learn from you.
It’s pretty basic and you can’t compare it to full-blown membership sites like MemberPress or Learndash(review). But Convertri doesn’t have this.
Winner: ClickFunnels. It’s your one-stop shop to market, sell, and deliver products to your customers. Convertri is pretty basic when it comes to marketing features.
Email marketing and automation
This is another area that Convertri isn’t equipped with.
It’s great to be able to integrate with email marketing providers like Aweber, GetResponse, ActiveCampaign, ConvertKit(review), Mailchimp, Keap, and Drip(review). Once you’ve integrated your email autoresponder, you can grow your mailing list by adding email addresses.
That’s all you get with Convertri. Over to ClickFunnels.
Their basic plan doesn’t have email marketing options so you have to use integrations. But their Platinum plan gives you Follow-up funnels. It’s an amazing feature that’s so worth your hard-earned money.
This autoresponder lets you send email broadcasts to your mailing list. In addition to that, you get Funnel Actions. This feature empowers you to keep track of every single action that your customers take on your pages. And you get to create highly personalized email campaigns.
But hey, most of the people I know on ClickFunnels don’t even use Follow-Up Funnels as the plan is too expensive.
Winner: Tie. Both platforms heavily rely on third-party email marketing integrations for you to have successful email campaigns.
Both applications don’t come loaded with a huge library of native integrations. They haven’t been around that long.
Convertri got into the market in 2016 and it has quite a small number of integrations. They just got hooked with Zapier so you can literally wire up every other tool you might need for your sales campaigns.
Established in 2015, ClickFunnels only has a handful of email integrations. But just like Convertri, Zapier comes to the rescue. It opens up thousands of applications to connect with. From email autoresponders to marketing tools, payment gateways, among others.
Winner: Tie. They both have a handful of integrations but Zapier comes through for them and opens the door to a ton of integration options using API.
At the end of the day, money talks.
Convertri has 3 pricing plans. Standard, Pro, and Convertri Agency. The Pro ($58/ month)and the Standard plan ($53 monthly) have pretty close price tags which makes it worth taking the Pro package.
It comes with dynamic texts that make funnel building a breeze, 250 funnels, page importer, and allows you to have team members onboard.
The annual plans come with a 24% discount.
ClickFunnels, on the other hand, is a bit pricey. And it all depends on how high you want to go.
The basic plan starts at $97 for only 20 sales funnels. And then the Platinum plan goes off the roof and costs $297 monthly.
Well, at least you get the Follow-Up funnels and the Backpack Affiliate Program.
Do you want more?
There is the Two Comma Club X for $1497/ month.
Winner: Convertri. It’s an affordable option compared to ClickFunnels. But, there are other tools that can also be used as more affordable ClickFunnels alternatives. GetResponse can be a great option.
We’ve come to the end of our little head to head. So what is better for your business?

- You need high-converting pages that load fast.
