1. Building Experience

Pagemaker is built with the busy entrepreneur and solo business owner in mind, which is why we made our plug-and-play technology incredible intuitive and simple to use.

Intuitive mobile-first editor

Plug and Play Technology

Our mobile-first plug and play technology is designed for speed! Simply select your template or modules and add your content in only a few clicks. You do not have to worry about responsiveness; Pagemaker automatically makes each viewport responsive.

We receive many questions surrounding our building technology. Why plug and play and not drag and drop? The answer is simple: We want to focus on conversions and not what looks good. The one downside to drag and drop builders is that you are giving the user free reign to design a landing page without the strong understanding of conversion elements such as : above fold, call to actions, mobile experience, etc, all the small details that contribute to higher conversions.

Our templates and modules are conversion focused and designed for plug and play content. In under 15 minutes you can design an entire conversion focused landing page that is responsive on every viewport.

Modules and Templates

Pagemaker's modules and templates are conversion-focused and lightning fast. There are currently over 60+ pre-made templates and 500+ pre-made modules on Pagemaker. A bit more than Swipe Pages 40+ pre-made templates and 80+ modules.

Swipe Pages

Swipe Pages uses the conventional drag and drop builder technology. The UI is clean and the experience is very similar to editing on Pagemaker, minus the time you save with a plug and play builder.

Verdict:

Both Pagemaker and Swipe Pages offer an intuitive, no-code, and user friendly app. The core differences in the two apps is the speed of how quickly you can build a page and the mobile-first focus.

Pagemaker is a mobile-first editor that uses a simple plug and play technology to give you the tools to build high converting landing pages, incredibly quick, through pre-designed template and modules.

By focusing on "mobile-first, Pagemaker users are able to increase conversion rates and shopping experiences by building in the mobile viewport where majority of the traffic arrives.

SwipePage provides a conventional drag and drop experience that is used by many other landing page apps. Swipe Pages builder gives you more 'creative control' to place elements anywhere on the landing page. This is beneficial to users who want to be able to take their time and design an entire landing page from scratch.

At Pagemaker our mission is to give user conversion-focused tools to build fast, launch fast, and scale. Drag and drop builders are the dinosaurs that will soon expire. The future of landing page builders is fast production, multi-variate testing, and AI copywriting....all features that will soon exist on Pagemaker.
