Creating effective landing pages isn’t a one-size-fits-all project. What works for one site might not work so well for another. Finding the most effective page design is a matter of trial and error in a lot of cases. It’s important to test the different versions of your landing page to find the one that works the best for your particular situation. Without doing so, you might be leaving a lot of potential conversions on the table.

Anyone can learn how to make a basic WordPress site without coding but if you need anything more elaborate or extensive for your business, it can get quite tricky. WordPress offers thousands of plugins for a reason, with thousands of themes to choose from before that. If you are a new business owner, never had an online presence, you should probably consult with a design team first (which could cost you).
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.
For example, let’s say your goal is $1,000,000 in annual revenue. If your Lifetime Customer ANNUAL value is $1,000 per year, then you only need to do $1,000 in sales every year to 1,000 customers. If you can keep those 1,000 customers around for 3 to 5 years, then your only job every year is to keep those 1,000 spots filled with nurtured prospects.
Pros: ClickFunnels has a broader scope compared to LeadPages (which is brilliant for lead generation) and it's easier to add upsells and downsells. One of the best things about ClickFunnels is that you can navigate it and create sales funnels with no coding required - no need for HTML, CSS or technical savvy knowledge. THere's a multitude of free templates and paid templates for a professional design even if you don't have any design skills; the drag-and-drop editor stands out.
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. 
Trulia did something very similar to Bills.com with their landing page. It starts with a simple form asking for "an address" (which sounds less creepy than "your address," although that's what they mean). Below this simple form field is a bright orange button that contrasts well with the hero image behind the form, and emphasizes that the estimate will be personalized to your home.

This is a great addition which Leadpages and ClickFunnels both offer to all their accounts. It makes lead magnets super easy to use and works a charm when you are using lots of them at once. The only issue I have with these is that you can’t use this with a double opt in. So you need to make sure that if you’re using this on one main list, that it’s a single opt in process.
But, given the volume of leads that fill your funnel, sales teams have a hard time converting leads into customers because they cannot discern the hot from the cold. This results in unqualified hot leads in the top of the funnel that either drop out due to slow response times, or remain stuck in the middle of the funnel eventually becoming cold leads. For a business this means missing out on golden ($) opportunities. And, that’s just one leak. There are more ways you lose leads in the sales funnel.
The truth? People are smart. They're not simply going to buy anything from anyone unless they feel there's an immense amount of value to be had there. Thus, your funnel needs to built that value and bake it in through a variety of means. But most importantly, you have to create a strong bond with your prospect, and that happens by being relatable, honest and transparent in your email warming sequence.
Depending on your business and industry, you could have 1,000 prospects at the top of your funnel. However, towards the end of your funnel, you may have 25 prospects. While these 25 prospects are more likely to convert than the ones at the top of the sales funnel, at the very end, there may only be five customers who’ve made a purchase and only two that are repeat customers.

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.
But let’s say that you want at least 100 people to purchase from your sales funnel. You can work backwards to see how many people you need at each point along the funnel. If you want 100 sales, you would need 250 people to end up on your landing page (100 divided by 0.40). In order to get 250 people on your landing, your social media ad needs to target 1,250 consumers (250 divided by 0.20).

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.


However, getting to this stage is no simple feat. It takes an enormous amount of work and effort plus tracking. By implementing sales funnel software, such as the platform built by Brunson, you can definitely cut down the headache, but there's still lots of work to be done. Copy needs to be written, tracking pixels need to be installed and email sequences need to be created. But that's what it takes to succeed.
Cons: They offer several paid levels but honestly, the paid or Free plan offer a limited package and all of them will funnel you to the main plan. . Now this is just for your funnel builder and not your hosting or CRM. For half the amount I can outsource and build landing funnels that I own. The main focus of this is for small business and solopreneurs. . Now it is if you can put the software to use and turn sales. But if you are just starting out this will kill the cash flow. Additionally. I found that a lot of creativity and design are needed. So be prepared that to make this work it takes time. I found it to be very time consuming and not the 5 minutes they claim.
That really depends on what you want to accomplish. If you want a basic site, you could upload a theme, or use your hosting company’s theme builder and get online but that doesn’t mean you’ll get what you want necessarily. WordPress itself is a basic, open-sourced software tool that really does nothing. It will take a bit of know-how and expertise to learn how to use, but if you are above-average tech savvy (or learn things quickly), you can figure out how to get online.
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.
Actionetics is ClickFunnels‘ email automation application which is native to ClickFunnels. Creating emails and messages are made easy with the email builder which has an almost similar characteristic to the funnel builder. Another cool thing about Actionetics is its Action Funnels feature. Action Funnels let you hyper-segment contacts to trigger certain actions whether it is internal or external. Internal actions include being removed to an email list, added to email list, etc. External actions include being able to receive email sequences.
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).
If you really want to learn more about Clickfunnels and the magic sauce behind how online funnels work, I strongly recommend reading Russel Brunson’s work — even if you don’t end up getting Clickfunnels for your business, this book is a must-read. It is jam-packed full of best practices, insider tips and more on how Brunson (the Founder of Clickfunnels) built his multi-million dollar funnel empire. I strongly recommend it.
Cons: It is soooo expensive. There is no option to have a true website, you basically have to create each page separately and connect them which, there is no easy way to do. Also, I found that the cloud platform they host on would often crash and send my users and error message. Builderall has all the same stuff for way cheaper http://bit.ly/CheapCF
Pros: Let's face it, funnels are the way to go to assist a customer in a purchase decision. Click Funnels is a easy to use and well put together platform. Their training sequence is fun and effective. They do an excellent job at making you feel a part of a club. I was on the trial offer and did not opt for a paid plan and I will elaborate below. Does this funnel system work- yes. Can a beginner do well with the CF software- maybe. Do they deliver the product they sell and provide appropriate support, absolutely. Is it worth per month? That is for you to decide but for me it was a no. Here is why-
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.

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.
Inception Secrets: Do you suck at creating sales copy? The majority of people do. But that’s going to change with the Inception Secrets training. Make your way through the training curriculum, and you'll emerge a sales copy master. Make use of these skills to produce amazing copy for your own funnels, or charge for your recently acquired talent and assist other marketers with their copy.
Chris is right, it is not the cost, it is the investment you are willing to make into your business here. Personally, I took the attitude of it being too costly at first, and trust me, I can afford it, I am just frugal. But now, looking at the powerful software and tool that it is, well, I am switching from Thrive to ClickFunnels. Personally speaking, my issue at first was based on my poor attitude of spending money, instead of a better and smarter attitude of investing into my business online…

The version 3 upgrade changed the structure of how we store pages. Bugs in previous versions made this a difficult transition. New pages store all their data in a much more reliable format. Pages created before this had to be upgraded, but all the data we want for them might not have been present. You may need to edit and resave old pages to get them working again.
We realize that when you make a decision to buy Sales Software it’s important not only to see how experts evaluate it in their reviews, but also to find out if the real people and companies that buy it are actually satisfied with the product. That’s why we’ve created our behavior-based Customer Satisfaction Algorithm™ that gathers customer reviews, comments and ClickFunnels reviews across a wide range of social media sites. The data is then presented in an easy to digest form showing how many people had positive and negative experience with ClickFunnels. With that information at hand you should be equipped to make an informed buying decision that you won’t regret.
The Instant Traffic Hacks course teaches you how to acquire traffic via different channels, effectively driving them into your funnels as a result. Your funnels are useless if there is no web traffic being sent to them, so this class teaches you how to harness web traffic from affiliate marketing tactics, social media channels, SEO tactics, and more.

ClickFunnels has more SEO options than one might expect from a landing page builder. Since I am using this for paid advertising campaigns, I did not expect much in the way of SEO features. I was surprised to find that I could at least edit SEO metadata. But, it is still limiting compared to what I could achieve on WordPress. The Yoast SEO plug-in provides a more comprehensive toolset, and with some SEO know-how, you can achieve a lot of best practices using Yoast.


Unique visitors instead of total visits — If you're counting every visit in the denominator of the equation, you're including return visits too. This doesn't make sense if someone can only convert once (e.g. signup for an account). Consider how they might check out the site a few times before converting. If so, don't let that deflate your conversion metric. Instead, count the unique number of visitors in any given period. And make your period at least as long as the average time it takes for someone to convert after first visiting your site.

Include more than one call to action (CTA) on your website. Chances are that your website visitors will be at different stages of the customer journey. Some might be ready to call or email while others might be researching. Make sure to include offers like free eBooks or whitepapers to capture names and email addresses for those who aren't quite ready to talk to your sales team.
If you don’t want to have to use a web designer for your landing pages, there are options for creating great landing pages without any technical knowledge. Unbounce is one of the easiest to use, and lets you create landing pages without any IT experience. They have best-practices templates available that you can customize (or design your own page entirely from scratch), and flexible pricing (including a free plan for sites with limited traffic). Unbounce also integrates with Google Analytics for tracking your traffic, and Qualaroo for gathering user input.
Just found your post in my study of sales funnels. You bring the heart to it. This is really the missing link to online success. Thank you for explaining it so easily. Am not compelled to download the free traffic course because I can imagine the quality of info it would have not to mention returning to the site to have my buffer on other interesting content. Thanks.
So, I was happy to take her under contract and put something together for her. As you can see, this right here is inside of what we call an opt-in funnel. The way you create an opt-in funnel, if you're wondering, is this easy button right here. With one click you get an option, what's your goal, collect email, sell a product, host a webinar. I also have some unbelievable webinar funnels that maybe I can ... If I have time I'll show you later in this video, but real quick, when you choose collect emails you're obviously going to name it, and grouping and tagging is very important, I will do that with this one.
“On my first pass, I actually missed the logos near the top. Then going back, I didn’t actually know why the logos were there – social proof works when connected, so I’d add a title like ‘As featured on’ or whatever is relevant.Also consider using the brand colors – believe it or not the mind connects the color before the form – so seeing the McDonalds arches, the yellow hits your retained memory faster than the shape…
Reconnaissance is all about scoping out the territory and checking out your competition to see who's leading the charge. Talk to anyone with an entrepreneurial mindset and you'll quickly see they have a vision. Those on the verge of a new project launch continually search for the necessary components to help them realize that vision. Part of that search is envisioning every detail of the end product. It should begin by researching similar product sites. Evaluating both successful and not so successful businesses allows you to take note of what the best of the best are doing. This shortens your learning curve. There's no need to start from scratch when you can learn from those who have already mastered the process.
Instead of watching long dry videos while scouring help files and FAQs, you will slowly be introduced to every feature of ClickFunnels through an engaging game. With simple tasks like building your first funnel and adding a domain broken down step-by-step, you’ll climb from novice to pro in no time. Simple rewards like badges, a funnel recipe e-book, and even a t-shirt keep you motivated throughout the whole experience.
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.

BUT – I do think that ClickFunnels has a full suite of options for any niche site builder, and that you should consider it if you are thinking that you are going to start outsourcing some of your work. If you are running an Amazon FBA business, having a ClickFunnels subscription may be worth considering; especially if you run paid traffic to your products on your own ecommerce site.
Cons: There are some bugs in the software which can make the process of building out a page a bit annoying. For our use case uploading images can be bugged at times, and the membership site part of the process was a bit confusing with saving and naming pages and urls, but overall this is a great tool that does what we needed in empowering our team to do more without needing to learn the nuances of html and css.
Thank you so much for this review. I was under the click funnels illusion, and after reading other experiences, and your objective comments, I think Lead pages will be m best choice. Plus the 97.00 a month aka 1200.00 a year is way out of my budget, since, I’m just starting and really want lead capture and landing pages more than anything. Don’t have a product to sell either. Thank you once again for the fantastic review on these important products!
“I think it’s great that the moment we come to this landing page we immediately know what HubSpot is offering. Both the H1 and the H2 are bolded which is a bit distracting. When viewing the landing page on iPhone the main header text comes up perfectly right under the top gif, which looks really clean. Overall the content does a great job showcasing why we would want these ebook templates. The biggest problems right now is I can’t read the orange text on the FAQ’s, the ebook examples are blurry, and the image behind the form at the bottom distracts from the CTA button. I’d worry people would have a hard time finding that CTA button. I’d also worry that people would not be able to see the arrows to navigate the example ebooks and like to test having less blurry example ebooks. I also think it would be worth testing not having sharing buttons on the landing page, as that could also distract visitors.”
