However, as simple as this definition is, when we talk about “landing pages” in online marketing, we usually mean a page that is specifically designed to receive and convert traffic from an online marketing campaign. Using this alternate definition, a home page wouldn’t qualify as a “landing page“—it isn’t designed to convert traffic from a specific marketing campaign.

LeadPages offers their Annual and 2 Year Billing (most recently added) upfront to all their customers while ClickFunnels (naturally) uses their funnel through a direct up-sell. I really would like to dissect both of their checkout forms at a later date as if you dive deep into what they have done, why they have designed parts of the pages the way they have, you’ll stand back in awe at the ingenious conversion masters that they are.

Take it one step further and break your marketing improvements down into stages. Perhaps your first stage of improvements is to enhance the conversion path on your website by offering a free eBook or free consultation to your site visitors. Once you feel confident that you can capture lead information, you might be ready to invest in additional marketing efforts to attract new visitors to your site.
OK, ok…that said, it may take you awhile to get acquainted and comfortable with all the Clickfunnels features — there are a lot of details you’ll have to figure out once your sales funnel is built. Things like what domain you’re going to assign it to (you can buy one for an easy $20 through Clickfunnels or attach it to an existing domain), your SEO data, if you’re going to integrate it with your email platform, creating split test pages, testing your live funnel, etc, etc.
Funnel Hacks System is a training program bundled with a 6-month access to the full ClickFunnels suite. This consists of the ClickFunnels platform, Actionetics and backpack. What sets it apart from other deals is that Funnel Hacks comes not only with the full ClickFunnels suite, however also with training and overviews to make the most from your ClickFunnels experience.
Landing pages, on the other hand, are perfectly suited to content that’s shorter. They also have the advantage of only having to load once, which can be a big consideration for companies targeting people in rural areas or developing nations, where bandwidth and connection speeds could be an issue. The downside to landing pages is that they can get overwhelming with a lot of content, and can come across as spammy if not well-designed.
“Andrew Chen’s site is minimalist in nature; he knows the focus of the site is on content, social proof, and of course to get people to sign up for his newsletter which is the main conversion goal. However, the layout is not making use of the real estate above the fold as it should be. Elements like narrow text margin, a lack of vertical alignment, unclear

’s, and misuse of whitespace can harm conversion rates if used incorrectly.”

Got it. Thanks Pete. You might like to know we’re updating our 6-Figure Funnel training right now to tailor it one version of it to product businesses, and the other version to professional service companies like your’s. We’ve also relaunched our free sales funnel checklist w/ video training. You can pop-in your email address to get that on this page.

Yes. Inside the affiliate dashboard, we provide you with over a dozen different links for promoting free content, our homepage, pricing page, etc. We also send you links via email for even easier promotion to earn commissions. It's also easy to create your own links to any specific content of ours (such as a blog post for sharing on social media).
Within traffic sources, there’s also the return path. Put simply, these are the methods you use to draw customers back into the funnel once they have fallen out, so that you have a second chance at influencing their buying decision. These return paths act somewhat like a follow-up, but in a less direct manner: they remind website visitors that you have a great product/ discount/ free trial/ etc.

Landing page optimization (LPO) is one part of a broader Internet marketing process called conversion optimization, or conversion rate optimization (CRO), with the goal of improving the percentage of visitors to the website that become sales leads and customers. A landing page is a webpage that is displayed when a potential customer clicks an advertisement or a search engine result link. This webpage typically displays content that is a relevant extension of the advertisement or link. LPO aims to provide page content and appearance that makes the webpage more appealing to target audiences.
You can expect this post to be updated quite regularly as I am really excited to see where this goes. Like I mentioned earlier, I’ll endeavour to keep this post updated as much as possible as new features and changes come up for both companies. I think the internet marketing space will be changing a fair bit in the coming 12-24 months as more people start new online platforms like these to compete for a slice of the pie. *(Also a note, that I am using affiliate links within this post, so if you do want to go purchase either of these two powerhouses, clicking a link will pass me off a little commission!)*
For instance, you may be in a local business or you might be trying to do SEO or something like that. I have a local lead generation business where I build local websites for limo services and plastic surgeons and moving companies, garage door repair, you name it, and they act as great websites for those folks as well. So, I can give you a head start, but I wanted to show you kind of an opt-in funnel that I've been building for one of my author clients. She's an author. She's super smart, super successful, but she's always had the majority of her business offline and she's wanted to move her sales funnel online and specifically she wanted to use ClickFunnels. So, she signed up for ClickFunnels under my account, but then she also said, "Hey Josh, I need you to go ahead and help me build this, since this is kind of a must first crack at online distribution and sales."

Disclaimer: I am an affiliate of Click Funnels and will get paid a commission if you choose to start an account by using one of my links in this no additional cost to you. Plus, if you do use my links I will provide you with bonus materials ...AND I will share with you my highest converting funnels directly from my account. Sound crazy? Try me.  Check out the below section that covers the bonuses I include.
I'm not sure how the algorithm works (or if there's one at all), but while I was filling it out, I had some anxiety about not qualifying. Once I found out I did, I was excited to fill out the form, which I'm sure most people who are in debt and using this tool are. By making this offer seem more exclusive before the form appeared on the landing page, I'd bet that increased conversions pretty significantly.

Within minutes, you’ll have an easy-to-update LeadPages™ template that you can modify for each of your clients’ marketing campaigns. Inside LeadPages™, you can also easily integrate this new opt-in page with your clients’ CRMs, duplicate it to run split tests, and even publish it on the LeadPages™ server or your clients’ Facebook fanpages if you wish.
This is likewise a great time to discuss that ClickFunnels provides really valuable and understandable training video clips when you initially sign up. I highly recommend experiencing those because they promptly enable you to utilize the device at its full capability, and also you’ll have much more enjoyable messing around.

Your sales copy concerns will be the target of this course. Intended to inform you in creating highly reliable sales copy you can utilize for your funnels or your clients’ funnels. This is a terrific course if you want to master sales copy development that focuses on your market’s requirements, desires, obstacles and profile for a targeted marketing message.
The penultimate stage of the sales process is working out the fine details and establishing a commitment to the deal. Once the lead is ready to make a purchase, sales reps present proposal, terms of contract, and other agreements to successfully win their business. The outcome of the opportunity may sway either way— win or loss—depending on the prospect’s interests at this stage. Although sales reps set the table for success, when it comes to closing—win rates are quite unpredictable.
You gain the prospects interest through an email sequence. You begin to relate stories to them that tie into who you are and how you've arrived to this point in your life. Brunson, in his book, Expert Secrets, calls this the Attractive Character. Are you the reluctant hero whose journey happened almost by mistake, but you feel like you owe it to yourself and the world to convey something of great value?

To better understand the concept of a sales funnel and just how you can implement it in your own business, let's look at the following image from Shutterstock. On the left side of the image, you see a magnet. That magnet is attracting customers, which happens a number of ways. From blogging to social media to paid ads and everything in between, how the visitors arrive to your website has some impact on the success of your funnel. 

In the previous section, I listed the 5 steps of nurturing your prospects. The ultimate goal of that process is to create Lifetime Customers. As you can imagine, those lifetime customers will be major contributors to the long-term growth of your business. This is where a lot of businesses fail. It’s a lot easier to sell lots of your best products and/or services to a small group of raving fans than it is to sell just one item to masses of new customers.
Now all of this landing page theory is nice, but reading about landing page design and actually designing an effective landing page are two very different things. If you want to create landing pages for your marketing campaigns, you have two basic options: 1) build the pages directly on your site or 2) create the landing pages using a landing page tool.
So, with all that said, as you can see, that Funnel Hacks is a pretty amazing deal. You observe that having a one-year Clickfunnels Enterprise account would usually cost you $297 per month, Which comes out to be about $3,600 per year. You’re getting this account for free when you invest in Funnel Hacks. You're saving $300 a month just by starting out.
This funnel occupies a strange niche, yet you can use its core framework to build million-dollar funnels which sell various things such as coaching programs, local services, info products, and much more. If you’re interested in earning $17,947 per day with an effective FunnelHacks marketing funnel, then read on for our review of this interesting system.
Cons: My dislikes are more nit picky than complaints; setup of URLs can involve 2 separate screens, which makes it a little confusing at first. It is template driven and some of these are very Internet Marketing centric, so the look and style may not be a fit, but of course you can adapt and make these your own. A broader selection of templates will help, but they do have a community of developers adding to it daily, so this is likely a short term problem.

Hello Sunil.. thank you for your feedback, it’s great to hear that you are finding this article useful. Re your question: yes, it makes sense to follow-up as often as you need to to reach the decision-maker. At the early stage of cold calling / emailing / SMS you may have to follow-up 6-12 times with a combination of cold calls and cold emails before you get to kick-started with your prospective customer. Obviously if they unsubscribe or say no then you have to respect this. At later stages, non-response would indicate that your prospective customer no longer sees (or has doubts) about the potential value of the solution you are selling. After following-up 2 times at a later stage, I would make it easy for your prospect to voice their concerns by communicating something like: “I’m struggling to reach you, perhaps we could hop on a call for 5 minutes as I’d like to understand your current thoughts rather than assume you are no longer interested in progressing.”

One of the core concepts in the digital marketing industry is the sales funnel. While odd sounding at first, this single core concept can take a business from virtually non-existent and unknown to multi-million-dollar marketing machine with mass saturation, seemingly overnight. In fact, there are skilled practitioners who have built a career around implementing this single concept in business.
