Creating my first Clickfunnel, which was a Video Sales Page with an upsell, downsell, and offer wall (arguably one of the more complex funnels) took me a good 6–8 weeks…that was with working on it a little every day, and having lots of back and forth with their awesome support team. It also probably took me longer because I got impatient (which Russell Brunson says happens with most entrepreneurs) and ditched his admittedly fun and useful Clickfunnels game (their training tool) to just start building.
I'm going to show you some examples of just really kind of the fire power that ClickFunnels brings to the table. What you're seeing here is literally the inside of my ClickFunnels account and just real fast, I want to just scroll down and let you see the kind of activity that I create inside my ClickFunnels account. These are all active or semi-active funnels that I use on a weekly basis for my business. You might be wondering, "Well, Josh, what do you do for business?" And I do a few things. I have a few streams of revenue, if you will, businesses. One would be SalesFunnelMadness.com, which is right here. I talk about ClickFunnels, I talk about building sales funnels and I help people build their sales funnels.
Special Clickfunnels discount pricing is only available on your first invoice. After that, you have to pay regular Clickfunnels subscription charges i.e. $297/month for Clickfunnels Etison Suite or $97/month for Clickfunnels Startup Plan. However, the customer has the option to buy Funnel Hacks subscription for the maximum duration of 12 months through Paypal to get the maximum benefit from the deal.
It's no surprise Unbounce is near the top of this list -- they've actually written the book on creating high-converting landing pages. Although there are lots of amazing things about this landing page, the two that I absolutely love are: 1) The use of a chat window instead of a classic form, and 2) the detailed -- but well packaged -- information below the form.
Match the corresponding ad text. Great landing pages use the same keywords from the PPC ad text – the connection should be obvious and the continuity reassures visitors that they’re on the right path. Don’t send someone to a page about camping tents if your ad was about sleeping bags. And don’t send them to a generic page and make them search for the product they were looking for.
After linking the pages together, my funnel was ready to go. It took about two days to complete this funnel compared to a couple of hours on ClickFunnels. I am also worried about the security of my pages. I’m protecting these pages from search engine spiders. But, could someone with technical skill still uncover them? With ClickFunnels, I am more confident in the security of these pages.

Since, in this example, my main business is booking travel, my ultimate goal is to convert newsletter subscribers into travel bookings. But if I develop a more sophisticated sales funnel, I can start to segment my list and target my marketing even more carefully to my “hot leads” and my most active subscribers. This way, I can begin to learn more about my list to offer well targeted new products and services.
As you can see in the video above, ClickFunnels has a completely brand new interface you can take advantage of. It’s beautiful and stunning so you’ll be able to design even nicer looking landing pages. The first thing you’ll notice about the new interface is the toolbar across the top of the editor and revised looking toolbar alongside the right of the editor.
This was very informative. Thank you. I actually own an insurance business which specifically focuses on health insurance. Normally, we generate our leads from referrals and lead generation companies but it seems like we are making these lead generation companies rich for what often turns out to be poor quality leads. Do you know of instances where click funnels and lead pages have been used for marketing and selling insurance products? It seems that based on what I am reading it’s really geared more towards a tangible product or service. What are your thoughts? Thank you again!
Once the prospect is in the proverbial funnel, you've peaked their awareness. That's the first stage of the funnel. However, getting a prospect aware of you is no simple feat. Depending upon how they've arrived to your website (organically or through a paid ad), those customers might view your funnel differently and your opt-in rates will vary significantly.
At this time, Leadpages does not provide the IP addresses of subscribers. Please note, if you're looking to identify the geographical location of your subscribers, it's best to set up a field on your form that asks for their location, as IP addresses are not the most accurate indicator for a subscribers residence. Furthermore, filtering by IP addresses when deciding who to send subsequent emails to could incorrectly include subscribers of a location not intended to be left out.
Clickfunnels is an online sales funnel builder that helps businesses market, sell, and deliver their products online. People inevitably ask me, "What is Clickfunnels?". So, technically speaking, it is a funnel builder for online businesses who want to get their message and product into the marketplace in the most efficient way possible. Efficient meaning, high conversion rates. Sales funnels built with Clickfunnels do collectively over $1 Billion dollars every year and Clickfunnels has active about 50,000 users. I can confidently say that Clickfunnels can accommodate any industry, any niche, any vertical. Sales funnels can be manipulated and optimized so easily using Clickfunnels giving the end user the best opportunity to make more money online and scale a modern business platform.
Marketing experts recommend websites remove the navigation menu and limit internal and external links on the page. The form length mirrors the value of the offer[clarification needed]. They may also include a relevant image, animation or short video. These pages also tend to contain small icons (i.e. of Facebook, or Twitter) to facilitate social media sharing.
This is the stage where growth hacking, not to be confused with funnel hacking, comes into play. The purpose of the refinement or growth hacking stage is to analyze funnel results at each impression point to determine where you're losing customers. You will find customers dropping off at multiple points. Recognize the most critical points, prioritize and attack there first. Make changes and move forward, continuing to observe and accept that this stage has no end game. The quest for improved conversions requires continual analysis, refinement and experimentation.
Opting for the Funnel Hacks System will entitle you all the advantages discussed above for just $997. Clearly, this is a steal of the cost if you only think about the expense for the ClickFunnels Etison Suite alone which will set you back $1782 if you opt to acquire simply the ClickFunnels suite. Nevertheless, if you opt to register to the Funnel Hacks System, you not only get access to the Etison Suite, but also to a whole lot of trainings not just for funnel building, however also for sales marketing and sales.
Cons: I've tried out the product after being slammed with 3-4 emails per day. Funny thing is I did a 14-day trial and was already planning on sticking around, not sure why I needed to get so many emails every day that was a bit annoying. After I upgraded I realized that all the best funnels were additional fees, and also the email automation was additional fees as well. The cost insist cheap for this software. I see some value if you really are focused on your business, this is not for a passive user as the fees add up quickly.
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.
This is a very important part in measuring conversion and will play a big role in how widespread the templates are used so they don’t become saturated. Personally, one of the only drawbacks (if you could even call it a drawback) to LeadPages is that they were so good, that now most well known (and even novice) internet marketers are using the platform for Facebook Ads left right and center.
Valued at $9770, the Funnel Hacks System is a training program style to stroll you through the entire funnel building procedure and guide you to creating effective funnels for whatever marketing purpose you can think of. When you avail of this offer, you do not just get training for ClickFunnels, but a full access to ClickFunnels Etison suite as well.
The final stage of the sales funnel is the action that you're intending them to perform. In most cases this is the purchase. Again, how well you move them through the various stages is going to set you up with a specific conversion for this action. For example, if 100 people click on your offer and 10 people enter your sales funnel but only purchase people purchase, then you have a 2 percent conversion.
There are email warming sequences that include things like personalized value-driven stories, tutorials and even soft pushes to webinars, and of course product suggestions that happen over days or even weeks. The truth is that most prospects won't buy from your website at first glance, especially if they're only just becoming aware of you today. It takes time. Thus, the funnel is a multi-modality process, as there are a variety of relationship-building experiences and "touches" that occur through several stages.
It’s also an e-commerce platform that allows you to sell subscription products, build membership sites (for your online course or whatever), opt-in pages, or e-commerce sites. It’s brilliant for multi-level sales pages, because it has upsells, downsells, cross-sells, offer pages, and offer bumps that are automatically built in with its sales funnel templates.
Thanks for your perspective, you do bring up some good points for sure. I wouldn’t say the 100 day bootcamp is a get rich quick scheme, but you really need to put in the effort as some people gotten results within that time frame so it’s definitely possible. However on the other hand, almost 95% of the people won’t achieve anything because of various reasons too. I’m not too sure what rubbed you wrong, but the ABC is built on promoting Clickfunnels so that’s for sure.
“Bonus comment – there is a clear narrative that ‘we’ can help ‘you’ start your own business. I like that there is a lot of focus on the ‘you’ throughout the page. We could improve this further with the usage of ‘we’ to mean both the user and ConvertKit by about halfway through the page. It is a subtle reassurance that we are here for you and the user will feel the reassurance whether they are aware of it or not.”
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
