That adds up to over 1,300,000 websites — nearly seven times more than the next biggest CMS, Joomla.

If you’re one of the millions running WordPress, we’ve got some exciting news for you!

You can now create landing pages with Instapage in a matter of minutes, and publish them to WordPress with a few clicks of your mouse. Here’s how:

  • Click Through
  • Webinar
