Frustrating to see  all the decent plugins on wp.org go premium,  including a great landing page generator with templates.  there are lots of paid solutions including lead pages  which seems to be the most wildly used but I really feel they are not worth the money to keep paying and annual fee for something that is the equivalent of  and editor with drag and drop capabilities.  I think you and I rick should come up with our own! :)  big bucks in it from what I see.  Can undercut the rest and make a killing.   Inbound marketing tools are much needed, and us  little guy (me, not you)  should not have to pay major corporation prices to access them on  a wordpress platform.   If I have to start paying for every plugin that make wordpress work properely  with full capabilities, then it will become cost prohibited to have a online business and promote  online Niche Marekting to others.  

Anyway off my soapbox now.   Any ideas for a solution until I create my own?  yell

Why does drag and drop matter?

The easiest solution is to develop some basic HTML and CSS skill and simply create your landing page in the editor.

You might look at some of the plugins suggested in this article about drag and drop page builders

I think I found the perfect plugin for this   Shortcode Ultimate

It has all the shortcodes needed already done and added to  the editor  so I just click what I want to add to page!   It has boxes columns  and tons of things needed for making a cool landing page.   It is free!  Check out the video on the page to see all you can do with it.

 

As far as creating from scratch, that is not an option.  My whole purpose for doing  all of this is to keep everything as Automated and repeatable as possible.  I have no desire to become a designer.  I just want to use wordpress to be an online marketer and take advantage of tools that are available with wordpress to do this efficiently.   

Time is money!  smile
