But in the last 2 years this thing called ClickFunnels appeared in the surface, and it has been taking the market by storm, since they’ve made a whole new goal and approach, their goal is not getting leads nor making pretty landing pages, instead their goal is purely generating the largest ROI possible for any user. through increasing sales, conversions, conversion value, followup…Etc.
Marketing your website is a complex process. As SEO becomes increasingly difficult and Social Media becomes increasingly time-consuming, nothing could be more important than spending time mapping out your very own “Content Marketing Sales Funnel.” In this post, I’ll walk you through the essential steps for building an online sales funnel to help you convert more of your tire-kickers into happy, repeat customers with massive Lifetime Customer Value. And, while I’m at it, I’m going to show you more pictures of funnels than you’ll probably ever see again. 🙂 Let’s get started…
My friend Dave from http://www.IntegratePro.com was the genius brain behind all of this and managed the setup and integration. He tied Thrive + AC + AM360 together, got the auto-login link working, setup the automation template (I filled it out with all my content) and even wrote some custom scripts to help me add tags to protect pages (we have like 200 protected posts/pages) faster than using the native AM360 system.
The same marketing functionality you’ll find in platforms like Kajabi or WebinarJam, platforms that allow you to build webinar pages, chat with your audience, and drive sales to your product are not here… Which means you’ll need to pay for other webinar platforms if you want to really leverage them.
So If you asked me what I feel is the best funnel builder I would recommend using Click Funnels by Russell Brunson. This program will make it so easy to build funnels, that not only will it pay for itself but this investment will help you make a lot more in the long run than the monthly cost.
This sales funnel and landing page software review is going to be your one stop guide and easy to understand set of pros and cons for each WordPress theme and plugin. What I really like about both of these sales funnel solutions is that fact that they run on WordPress.

Any time you land on a checkout page and see a “checkbox” you can click to add something additional to your order…that’s a checkout bump! It’s one of the easiest ways to increase overall order value and profitability.

If you are doing a live YouTube webinar within a Thrive Themes site, or webinar replays within a Thrive Themes site, you can have an offer section reveal after a certain period of time. This can include a button linking to an external payment system.
Another thing to note is that Clickfunnels even does billing right inside the system. You can in a few minutes link a Stripe account with your Clickfunnels account and bingo! You can now make sales directly from inside your sales pages in Clickfunnels.
This may sound expensive. But keep in mind this has much more to offer than say Leadpages, who just offers landing pages. Also, you have everything all in one platform, which makes things a lot easier.
You can also enjoy features that permit you to manage, recruit, and pay your affiliates. And, of course, you will have access to all the analytics and metrics necessary to review your funnel performance, campaigns, sales, and conversions, in addition to A/B testing results.
Mint appears to be targeting people based on location. For example, I’m located in the northeast. The background image is wintry with people dressed in warm clothing. If I was in Florida, it might be personalized differently. They might be doing geographical targeting with the design.
ClickFunnels will let you create all your optin pages, sales pages, email sequences, membership areas, online training courses etc, and link them together to build your funnel — all in one, easy to use tool.
I love the way I can easily make unique web pages quickly. I can build my website normally, and if I want a unique video sales page or some other sort of page that the theme cannot create, I can just create a funnel kit page!
If you’re a marketer with a product to sell, a service to market or an event to promote, you’ll love how easy it is to build a sales funnel using ClickFunnels. Everything from landing page creation to email marketing is handled from within one tool, making the process extremely simple.

If your answer is “No” so now you can easily integrate “PlugTalent” marketing automation into your business for FREE which have same features like Hubspot, Marketo, Clickfuunels, Pardot etc. You can check more details here: Free Marketing Automation Software | Plugtalent.com
Honestly, ClickFunnels promises a lot of functionality, and some of it is substandard and not really ready for prime-time (Actionetics, their email tool is ehhhh). However, at the core of it, the landing page builder is quite robust and I like how it provides more of a visual link between pages than LeadPages.
There are 22 funnels to choose from based on your industry and the type of that you wanna build – whether you intend to generate leads, sell a product, create an event or do something entirely different.
ConvertKit knows you want safety and security when choosing something new for your business, which is why they offer a 30 day money-back guarantee. Pay for the first month, give it a try, and if you’re not completely satisfied you can cancel and get a refund within the first 30 days.
If you try to opt-in with the same information to get another video, they ask you to sign up again. I believe that is their process. Like I said, that creates some friction. Yes, you can enter a fake email, but, if you believe in the quality of the content (and it is really good content; Andrew is one of the best interviewers on the Internet), you won’t.
To answer all your technical questions you’ll need to shoot a message through to https://support.clickfunnels.com/support/home and they’ll be able to give you the specifics on the functionality available so you can migrate your system across if you’d like.
You can add countdown timers to any page to add the urgency and scarcity proven to increase sales. Pick from two different styles – date-based countdown timers to expire at a specified date or “evergreen” timers to expire after “x” time for each visitor.
My recommendation would be to just use Simplero for all the course delivery. I’m using WLM because I used it before getting on Simplero, and like that I have a little more design freedom. But when that is said, there is a lot more extra work by having my content in a WP site using WLM.
It totally makes sense that payments are done after a period of 45 days, although sometimes I feel its overstretched! But still given the amount of refunds and cancellations that happen suddenly, this is a very effective measure.
Using either SamCart, ClickFunnels or Shopify will give you more credibility as an online seller. It gives you a professional image that can increase your sales and allow you to charge more for your products and services, benefiting your bottom line in both the short- and long-term.
“Two years ago I thought I would like to open a handgun shop part-time and took your handgun course. I have to tell you it is even better than a classroom, as I have the videos to fall back on when needed. My shop is doing very well.”
It’s a very exciting day here at ClickFunnels as we finally announce and roll out publicly Actionetics and Backpack for the very first time. You may have heard of or seen some of the features already, or you may not be familiar with them at all.
Awesome tutorial and can’t wait to implement it for our landing pages. I would love to see some more content on Active Campaign integration too. Could you also let me know if you intend to have integrations in Active Campaign beyond lists? Thanks again
The main benefit to Clickfunnels over LeadPages is customizability. LeadPages has simple landing pages that offer very little in the way of customization. They did, however, recently release a drag-n-drop builder of their own. It’s nowhere near as robust, stable, and customizable as Clickfunnels pages but it’s a step in the right direction for them.
If you’ve ever wondered what someone uses as their shopping cart or their product delivery plug-in… You’re wondering with their marketing stack is. That term of “marketing stack” refers to the email system, the CRM, the shopping cart, the product delivery system, your content management…
