A Funnel Hackers Paradise

17 tools to create challenge funnels

I guess a challenge funnel can be as complicated as you want to make it. As the curator of a big ass collection of funnels I can tell you I’ve been through a few challenges!

And I don’t mean life I mean challenge websites.

So I’ve seen mostly free challenges but over the last year the trend is starting to shift towards paid challenges.

Both are simple to achieve without any super expensive software!

A paid challenge would just have your content delivered via a membership platform (I would use Thrivecart as I already own it).

And just think of a free challenge as just a lead funnel with extra content so instead of 1 lead magnet you’re giving away multiple.

1. Thrivecart

The shopping cart software I personally use to create funnels, I got Thrivecart and Thrivecart Pro for a one time fee and it just keeps getting better.

Recently they added Learn and Learn+ to it. I would use this for a paid challenge funnel and use the extra features of learn + to add the challenge content to a subdomain, drip it out everyday and send them emails as they finish parts of the course.


Groove Funnels would be my choice if I didn’t already use Thrivecart for my business.

I have messed about with it a little bit and it looks like an incredible offer. The experience the founders have with this type of marketing and the 1 time fee should make this package a no brainer.

I may do a full review in the future.

3. Thrive Leads

Thrive Leads is part of Thrive Suite which I use for certain projects so I would be amiss if I didn’t mention it.

It will connect to your email service and help you easily set up landing pages to collect leads.

Well worth the money in my opinion.

4. is a new platform and they are really trying to disrupt the market with their amazing FREE tier!

They have very reasonable prices too once you get out of the free teir.

5. Leadpages

Started in 2012 Leadpages has become a beast of the landing page building arena and bought

They will have templates for just about everything.

So if you are looking for a good landing page builder for your challenge funnels try Leadpages.

6. Divi Theme

Divi is my landing page builder of choice.

Does come with a learning curve but once you get used to it you will wonder how you ever did without it.

7. Optimizepress

OptimizePress is the granddaddy of landing page and product launch systems.

Launched many years ago OptimizePress was a total market disrupter and is still well utilized even today.

At the time there was nothing else like it on the market.

Today the market is getting hectic.

8. FastFunnels

Fast Funnels is a recent entry into the landing page and funnel building arena.

The platform looks good and the pricing reasonable compared to other contenders in this marketplace.

If you are looking for something that isn’t super expensive then maybe FastFunnels is for you.

9. Clickfunnels

Clickfunnels is the loudest new kid on the block looking to make a name for himself and doing very well too I might add.

The alarming growth of clickfunnels shows that the team there know about marketing.

And having been through a number of Clickfunnels funnels I can tell you from the outside it looks like a very polished platform.

10. Podia

Podia is a new one on me it looks like a pretty slick platform.

It comes with all the features you would expect from a service on this list.

11. Kartra

Kartra is like any of the systems on this list and would be very suited to creating your challenge funnels with.

It’s one of the more mature services on this list so I would assume it’s one of the more evolved and bug free.

Very similar features like upsells and downsells, online courses and such.

12. Kajabi

Kajabi has been around since 2010 and has grow into a solid platform for anyone who wants to sell well just about anything really.

Their features include but not limited to online course creation, website builder, email newsletters, membership programs.

It being one of the older contenders in this list should make Kajabi a pretty evolved platform worthy of your marketing dollars.

13. Samcart

Samcart are a major player in the ecommerce/Landing Page market. They are one of the pioneers in this space offering order bumps, 1 click upsells, downsells, one touch purchases, A/B testing, Cart Abandonment, Affiliate Center and hundreds of integrations with other platforms.

If you are looking for a rock solid platform to deliver your challenge funnels then SamCart could be the answer.

14. Drip

Drip is another service I personally use. It’s a specialist ecommerce email and SMS service provider.

It’s a good service I would highly recommend them.

15. ActiveCampaign

ActiveCampaign do email marketing mainly or as an extra fee you can have landing pages too but this seems tied to your number of subscribers so might be 1 to watch out for as your list grows.

It looks very capable and I assume that because they have been around for ages they must be doing something right.

16. Getresponse

Getresponse was an email service provider and leads provider back in the day.

It’s good to see that they have evolved over the last decade.

They offer a landing page builder and full websites too and it’s free to get started upto 500 contacts.

17. Sendinblue

Sendinblue seem to do a touch more than some of the providers on this list so with your email marketing you also get chat and facebook ads.

I have used Sendinblue in the past and would recommend them to anyone starting out.
