Autopilot is on a mission to help the world’s companies move towards automation by being more accessible and affordable and by empowering visual orchestration of the customer journey.
Autopilot set aggressive growth goals that were dependent on capturing and converting new customers via their 30-day free trial. Autopilot built out a comprehensive lead generation campaign that offered gated content like webinars, free trial signups, ebooks, etc. and sent users to a generic tour page.
Their initial free trial conversion goals fell short.
Zero in on the Target
Autopilot refocused their landing page strategy by eliminating the generic tour page and sent all of their paid advertising to a dedicated keyword, message-matched landing page created on Instapage.
Instapage for the Save
After testing several landing page creation platforms Autopilot selected Instapage for its intuitive builder, advanced A/B testing capabilities, and its rich integrations ecosystem. As an added bonus the Autopilot tracking codes synced seamlessly.

We needed to launch pages quickly to convert paid advertising traffic for specific marketing goals. The first time I used Instapage, I built a fully optimized landing page that integrated with my existing tool stack in under 10 minutes, without a developer.
