But if you still use separate tools to email and call your leads, then visibility into their different touchpoints at different stages in the funnel can be difficult to figure out. Use a CRM software with built-in email and phone instead. You can create email templates in your CRM to quickly reach out to leads. Even better, you can automate sending out the first welcome email to new leads using workflows. Modern CRMs also track your emails and notify you when the lead opens your email. This is a nifty feature to know when to take action and move your lead to the next stage. You know, strike while the iron is hot? So now you’ll know if your email is getting read or not. You can also use email metrics to test your email performance, and craft better ones to increase open rates.
However, the best part about this, and the most powerful route that entrepreneurs take to scale their businesses, is that if you know that sending 100 people to your site costs you $200, for example, but you get two people to convert at $300 each, then you have a $600 return on $200 invested (300 percent). When you know that, that's when the entire game changes and you can infinitely scale your offers.

Contain engaging copy. Kiss Metrics suggests using specific “hypnotic” words to entrance visitors. Using the word “you” makes your copy feel personal to visitors and allows for intimate conversation. The word “imagine” encourages readers to visualize using your product and increases desire. Including the word “because” explains to visitors why they should take a specific action. Try these mind-bending words on your landing page.


I definitely have subscribed to Funnel hacks and have made my ROI multiple times over already with my affiliate and other business i’m involved in already. Also to back up Russell’s products (Perfect Webinar), I can 100% say that the products are very revolutionary and life changing, including his 2 books if you want to get it: Dotcom Secrets (https://incomefromthereddot.co…) and Expert Secrets (https://incomefromthereddot.co…). His process of doing things is very different but simple at the same time, so if you’re serious in wanting to make money, at least get his books first! Funnel hacks only if you have the money to go for it because the value in there is really amazing.

Chris, thank you so very much for that. I am new to all of this and feel so overwhelmed in trying to figure out what system to use and how to put it all together. I have written 3 ebooks and have a course to go with one. One is a free give-away. I didn’t know where to start, but wanted to just do the free give-away in exchange for the emails. Later on, I thought I’d offer the course that goes with that book. What do you recommend? Do you think I should just stick with Leadpages and collect the emails and then when I’m ready to offer the course, use ClickFunnels? Can the names collected in LeadPages be integrated into ClickFunnels? I’m still trying to work this all out. Thanks for any help/guidance you can give.
You can change the name to your company name or your product name or say 'hi' to your prospect, whatever it is. The rest of the stuff is very useful. The page description and keywords, very useful in SEO, if you are paying attention to SEO, but most people using ClickFunnels aren't overly concerned with SEO because they're driving traffic with either JV, Joint Venture Partners or affiliate partners who have email lists, or they're driving traffic with Google AdWords or Facebook Ads, something like that.

Hi Matt, a really great article which pulls out many strengths. I’m a wedding photographer and I’m researching new ways to funnel visitors by their current; challenges, position in planning their wedding and then addressing short term buyers vs longer cycle buyers who are researching etc. Do you have any advice or examples which could be useful even if a different industry? Thanks Pete
“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.”
However, if you're a beginner it's still the way to go because they have drag and drop one click solutions for anybody that is not tech savvy or doesn't know code, that's why ClickFunnels exist. I am personally a customer of the Etison Suite, so if you're an advanced affiliate marketer or direct response marketer, you have an email list that's pretty substantial, you've done online business before or even offline business, local businesses, real estate agents, dentists, lawyers, authors, you name it, Etison Suite or the StartUp Plan is a great option for you if you're wanting to enhance your marketing funnel and your sales funnel conversions online.
If you're wondering what a sales funnel is, simply imagine a real-world funnel. At the top of that funnel, some substance is poured in, which filters down towards one finite destination. In sales, something similar occurs. At the top, lots of visitors arrive who may enter your funnel. However, unlike the real-world funnel, not all who enter the sales funnel will reemerge out from the other end. 
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."
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.

This is definitely a great investment to get when you can afford to pay for it. If not, get the Dotcom Secrets and Expert Secrets book for a starter as those cover quite a few things that is inside Funnel Hacks as well, and it is at a much lower cost as well. You’ll definitely learn a lot from those books combined with what you learn in Wealthy Affiliate.

If your landing page is tied to an email campaign, make sure that the landing page echoes the look and feel of the email. If the designs of the two are wildly different, your landing page visitors may wonder if they’ve ended up in the right place. The easiest way to do this is to carry over fonts, images, and colors from your email to your landing page.
Overall: Easy setup and management of funnels, with options to integrate your entire site in there if you want to. Cool tools that allow you to manage the flow without typing in URLs, as it goes to the next step in the funnel. Decent reporting and analytics built in, and obviously integrates with analytics tools as well. The biggest benefit here is speed to execute, as everything is laid out for you, with sample funnels as well, to give you an initial idea of flow. You could seriously run an entire business on here, and it's good for selling as well as lead generation.
Create eye catching headlines. Most good landing pages use the main headline to confirm the offer and use a sub heading for more explanation or value proposition (aka why your offer is awesome).  An example might be, “Free Facebook Marketing Ebook (headline), Learn how to get more Facebook followers, likes, and engagement from our marketing gurus (sub heading).” You’ll see plenty of great landing page headlines in our examples below, and you’ll see that some invert this so that the value proposition is the headline.
A well-designed landing page can greatly increase conversions for your PPC or email marketing campaigns. Rather than directing visitors from those sources to your general website (where they may have a hard time finding what they’re looking for), you can direct them to a specially-designed landing page that steers them in exactly the direction you want them to take.
Nauto, a data platform for self-driving cars, helps make autonomous driving safer for companies who manage fleets of self-driving vehicles. Naturally, its customers would need all kinds of information to sell them on this platform. Nauto has it, packaged into a super-simple ebook whose landing page gives you both a brief contact form and some preview statistics to prove why this resource is so important.
Basically, the man and legend Russell Brunson asked 100 Clickfunnels millionaires (what he calls his 2 Comma Club winners because they made a million dollars off a single funnel) what they would do if…they lost EVERYTHING and had to start over from scratch in just 30 days. So yeah, that means they had NO product, NO email list, NO money, and no reputation. What Clickfunnel would they build and why?
When a lead enters the CRM, it’s marked “new”. Every lead in this stage is in the top of the funnel. As sales reps interact with leads, they’re subsequently moved to the next stages. Filters and views in the CRM reveals the number of leads at every stage in the sales funnel to help you analyze their progress—how many new leads are in the funnel, how many have engaged with sales reps, how many are in the bottom of the funnel and ready to close, and how many need to be nurtured. This knowledge about your sales funnel becomes an actionable tool allowing you to plan your sales strategies.

Hello – at first looking at the Imbound plugins for landing pages – call-to-action -and Imbound forms- I thought “what a great system plugin for WordPress. However – after creating a landing page and then tring to utilize the call to action by placing the shortcode in the landing page – it does not show up.These are the most important function of them all! So then I created an Imbound form instead for Email and although it seems to work – I find out later when testing it does not send out any email when tested. I wondered why I did not get any responses – not even one! Not to my notification email or to the one who subscribes. Unfortunately I jumped the gun and advertised the landing page, and now I do not know whether I have gotten any responses or not. I tried to get support earlier on when attempting to use these plugins because the help videos just disappeared after navigating away one time. I cannot find any directions or videos – nor can I get any support response. So it seems to be a good idea gone bad to me. Mistakes and malfunctions can and do happen with a lot of plugins, but the worst thing in the world is not getting any support what-so-ever! So I suppose there is not a lot of “going Premium” with these plugins.


I’m looking for the best way to increase the number of people signing up for this webinar. Currently people sign up by from my website. Wanting to know if since my goal is to increase the number of signing ups for a free webinar is Landing pages likely the best option and would it make more sense to have them signing up directly from the landing page or should I just link them from the landing page directly to the sign up page on my site? Which lead generator is the best option????
“Now, for the vinegar. Starting with the headline, if creating headlines was a waste of time, why do I need this product at all? And why write headlines at all in the first place?  Do their customers really say to themselves (in their owns heads), ‘this is a waste of time?’ Probably not. They say something more like ‘I don’t want to do this,’ ‘I suck at this,’ or ‘I hate writing.’ Big difference. They attempted to call out a problem, but in this case there’s a big disconnect and it’s negative for no real reason. Instead, if they want to call out a problem, they need to pick one that the market connects to.

Steps in Sales Funnel – This lays out for you, point-by-point, each page and step the customer goes through on their way to making a purchase. In some cases, it also works to point out some of the follow-up steps and “if-then” scenarios. For instance, how does the funnel respond “intelligently” to get prospects who didn’t buy to come back to the website?
