Clickfunnels seems a little pricey when you first look. But, if you look at how much they offer, and how much is automated, you are actually coming out cheaper. Clickfunnels will take a little bit of time to learn. However, there are many tutorials available.. There are Facebook groups, (I am a member of 2), and also Russell walks you through getting started himself.
I’d suggest you take a look at either Wix, Squarespace or Weebly. We have a comparison chart for ecommerce builders here. You’ll be able to compare those 3 builders from an ecommerce perspective there.
Your article and information is great! I am not a techy kinda guy so in your opinion what web builder would you go with in my case? We are going public with a personal safety academy that involves simple awareness to firearms use and fire safety/first aid to all hazards preparation. This for individuals and families. We have full time jobs also so we need something that will not eat a lot of time on the computer. Thank you for your help!
I’d suggest you take a look at Shopify or Bigcommerce, as both are online store focused builders, and both have flexibility to create quite a bit of custom tools / functions that can match your needs.
Infusionsoft features a very powerful marketing automation platform. Campaigns are created on a blank canvas, onto which you can add automation rules that dictate when, how and to whom the software should send marketing content.
There is no free website builder without ads. What is the point to give you opportunity to build a free site and do not get nothing in turn? I saw a few free website builders who assured on their Home pages that they don’t have ads and never will. I was quite surprised then – since as a marketer I don’t know such a model – perhaps guys invented something new world doesn’t know about yet? – Alas, less than a year later I’ve visited their sites from my bookmarks – these website builders didn’t work at all. And it’s not a surprise – since there’s no such thing as a free lunch. If you want to get a good website – be ready to pay for this or humble yourself with a little link on your site – if you use free website builders.
You can also connect your email addresses as well as Squarespace does offer you the ability to use Google Business Apps (basically the Gmail user interface) to power your custom email addresses. It’s only a few dollars a month, which is affordable.
Even cooler? ClickFunnels let’s you add an opt-in box to any page you’d like, including for example, right in the middle or end of your blog post – which makes it beyond easy to promote your content upgrade just when your reader is feeling super excited to get their hands on the special extra content you’re offering.
If you get sucked into one of their funnels, it’s hard to escape the hype surrounding it. They have a great marketing for sure. However, from a user experience perspective, you don’t have much wiggle room. Once you sign up for the software, you either have to look at the objective features of the software and integrate it into your own workflow or you’ll be lost and forced to learn Russell Brunson’s marketing methods.
From there, I realized that it will require coming up with niche specific sales funnels in order to sell that to small-sized businesses. Apart from that, I could also sell the very same funnels in the ClickFunnels marketplace, where different ClickFunnels users can purchase them.
You can also look at Weebly. Some of their newer templates are responsive but they don’t have a lot of them yet (versus Squarespace – all their are mobile responsive). With Weebly, you have full access to both HTML and CSS. So if you’re not afraid of editing codes, you can really make a lot of design customization here too.
Even though the website builders above will deliver basic (and in some cases, more advanced) website building tools, you also have to be comfortable working with them. Each person will prefer a different website builder for unique reasons (different user interface, etc).
