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 Actionetics email builder also comes with an Action Funnels feature which allows you to hyper-segment your contracts in order to trigger external and internal actions at the appropriate time. Internal actions may include, for example, being removed/added from an email list, which external actions may include things such as being able to receive email sequences.

That’s a fantastic question. When someone comes in and joins your list, that person is yours. Russell and his team do not add that person to their database in any way. Your data is 100% yours. It would be both illegal and immoral for Russell and his staff members to do anything with it. You don’t need to bother about them emailing to your list or sending your customers anything; those customers are all yours.
This is not something I’ve tried, but I have seen others use it successfully. I’m sure you’ve seen this before! Basically, you can have someone text a certain word or phrase to a specific number. They’ll receive a text telling them to respond with their email address and then once they do, they’ll be subscribed! This has a number of really neat uses, like:
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.
You must know by now that the sales funnel defies gravity. Not every lead who enters your funnel finds their way to the bottom. Sometimes, even all the qualified leads don’t reach the bottom of the funnel. This can be due to the negligence of sales reps to engage with the lead, or simply because the lead is not ready to take the next step. It’s important for sales reps not to perceive a qualified lead leaving the funnel at any point as a lost opportunity. CRM helps you win back lost opportunities through lead nurturing.
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.
The image on the left is one that I created in Photoshop — it’s a graphic button. When clicked, the image on the right pops up and visitors can subscribe in order to receive my free content upgrade. Not only does it look pretty neat and professional, but it means that you can easily collect subscribers without needing to insert clunky subscription forms into your posts.
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: I tried to use it for 6-8 months, I am located in Costa Rica (Central America), and there are a lot of restrictions mainly with currency. It looks like it works fine with the integration of Stripe because you can do upgrades, sidegrades and downgrades, however if I am not mistaken, it only works in USA. In my case, only Paypal works and is very limited.
As you can see, the layout is here on the right hand side, you can see the control panel or the toolbar, and all of these things, obviously, have everything to do with what's on the page here. Once you're on the page you have the settings menu, it's going to be a lot of stuff here. You don't always have to just go through these things one thing at a time, a lot of times these are going to be already preset the way you like them, but the meta tags in the social settings you always want to update. So that, for instance the social image is when you copy and paste a URL into a social media platform like Facebook and that's how picture shows up sometimes. Well, that's where that picture comes from. Then of course, up here where it says 'start here', you can see that that's what's here as well.

They have already started mentioning big names in the Internet Marketing industry whose landing pages they have published to the marketplace which continue to build and expand LeadPages‘ authority. Some of these names include Ezra Firestone (Smart Marketer), James Schramko (Super Fast Business) and Ryan Deis s(Digital Marketing)….but no Russell Brunson 😛 (by the way, all those guys are killing it as of late, so kudos to them!)

⚠️ WE NEED YOUR HELP ⚠️ Human trafficking is a subject that NO ONE wants to talk about and most people avoid even THINKING about it. It is truly the darkest part of humanity and something MUST be DONE to STOP IT. That’s where Operation Underground Railroad has stepped up with an incredible team of people who work tirelessly to rescue children from a life of slavery. ⠀ We’ve had the opportunity to partner with O.U.R, and through our collaboration comes a documentary titled “Operation Toussaint” which was created to help spread the word and bring awareness of this harsh reality. It’s a film that follows the journey of former government agent Tim Ballard , who left everything he’d built to rescue kids and shed light in the darkest corners of the world. ⠀ Shortly after we premiered “Operation Toussaint” this year at Funnel Hacking Live we were able to raise over one million dollars for O.U.R, which has helped save over 400 children from sex slavery - but we want to do more! People have asked how they can help, it’s easy! Visit to learn more. ⠀ Check out the full trailer, reserve your seat, and SHARE THE LINK EVERYWHERE for the LIVE premier TONIGHT at 7pm MST. Let’s use this platform to make a difference! Join us in saving children from a life of slavery. 🌍🤲 #EndHumanTrafficking #OURrescue #SaveALife #Leadership #OURfilm #OperationToussaint #clickfunnels #russellbrunson #funnelhacker

At the top of the funnel, no one knows who you are — sure, maybe your mom and a few potential customers know you, but the point of this stage is to get your name out there. You want to create buzz around your product or simply credibility around your brand. This is where you want to spend some time thinking about your personal brand. I’ve helped countless entrepreneurs go from bland to brand on the Internet, and let me tell you, it’s a game of followers, social media influence, and massive online publishing (be it articles like this one and otherwise). Some have even brought on our publicist as a way to get TV placements.
I have no alternative but to uninstall the plugins and go with another unless the developer “sees the light” and decides to create some simple directions and figure out how to keep the help videos on the dashboard page. The developer would have seen a much larger response to selling premium if the free versions atleast worked or just answer support. I see this alot when dealing with wordpress developers and I could never figure out why!

A sales funnel is a marketing system. It’s the “ideal” process you intend your customers to experience as they go from Prospect to Lead to Customer to Repeat Buyer. Sales funnels have been around much longer than web marketing, but the online world is the best thing to ever happen to sales funnels because websites and email marketing make sales funnels easier to build.
For example, if you’re selling an eBook, you could offer a free chapter in exchange for their email address. Submitting their email is a low barrier to entry, and they’ll receive a lot of value in return. From there, you can use their email to push them deeper into the sales funnel, especially since they have already shown interest in your product.  
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.
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.

Or, are you a leader, an adventurer or an evangelist? How you position yourself is entirely up to you, but your message must be consistent throughout your entire "pitch" and it needs to be steeped in the truth. Your backstory, and just how you convey that through parables, character flaws and polarity, has much to do with just how well you can "hook" in your prospects to create a mass movement.

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. 
ClickFunnels is now a fairly mature service developed by Russell Brunson and his team. It’s now been up and running for more than 3 years at the time of this review. As a quick aside, I learned about ClickFunnels through Russell’s new book DotCom Secrets: The Underground Playbook for Growing Your Company Online. If you want to learn how to sell products, then I highly recommend it.

Believe it or not, this works and everyday I see new subscribers sharing my opt-in form. Imagine if 10 people subscribed and you didn’t have a page like this. Well…then 10 people would have subscribed and that would be the end of that. BUT…if you have a viral sharing page, like the one above, then those 10 people could very well share it with all of their followers, resulting in more and more subscribers to your list. It’s pretty rad, y’all.


You could create a much simpler one, like say an email opt-in page (perfect if you just want to build an email list in exchange for something like a free downloadable checklist) in a couple days. But I decided to get ambitious and try selling a health supplement product right off the bat. That ended up being quite the endeavor as I hired someone to create a Facebook ad campaign for me to actually drive traffic TO the funnel. Ah yes, this is a very important part of what happens AFTER your funnel is complete. But you’ll get there.
3. Who is my audience? And what are their hopes, dreams, and aspirations? As silly as that sounds, it’s true to some degree – the better you understand your audience, the more you can cater to their wants and needs. Unless you know who your ideal customers are, it will be very difficult to write persuasive copy in the voice of the customer. So get in your audience’s head, Hannibal Lecter-style.

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.
“Another massive problem is that there are hundreds of free blog posts with thousands of free headlines that all claim to convert and published by trusted sources in the copywriting/CRO community. There’s nothing special about this offer that I couldn’t already get for free with a quick google search. In other words, this offer needs a USP. Without it, there’s literally zero reason why I would want this over all the free stuff I could get from sites/authors I trust.
Principle of commitment & consistency -- When people commit to something, they're far more likely to purchase from you. That's why getting them to agree to something like a free + shipping offer or by agreeing with something you've said in some way. This is a powerful principle in sales and if you pay attention to some of the best marketers in the world, you'll notice that they work fervently to get your commitment to something, even if it's very small in the beginning. 
“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…

I enjoy Actionetics because it not only changes your email advertising yet messenger advertising and SMS advertising and marketing software applications too. This takes automation to an entire new degree and also helps you communicate the excellent message to your consumers, exactly when they need it. A video introduction of Actionetics will certainly be supplied further listed below.


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.
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.
Pros: Easy drag and drop platform. One of the best things about CF is that you can share a template to another user. We have benefitted greatly from having funnels shared to us by other users so that we didn't have to build it from the ground up - change it to our look and feel, but the funnel itself is already in place. Also, their tech support is out of this world. Incredibly helpful for any question!! If they can't provide a link to already-created-FAQ help, they make a simple video from inside your own account and SHOW you how to do what you are trying to get help with. Highly recommend CF. You can get a free 14-day trial here: https://webclass.clickfunnels.com/signupnow/?cf_affiliate_id=1228584&affiliate_id=1228584&aff_sub=dashboard&aff_sub2=fhauto

If you’re already a ClickFunnels member, you’re going to view a page such as the one shown above in the screenshot. Your credit card is already on file. Therefore the page will probably ask you if you want to use the card associated with your account. You either agree or disagree, and then you click on the ‘Upgrade My Account’ button. What’s going to happen is your Clickfunnels account will probably be upgraded to the Enterprise level.
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.

Cons: Certain functions don't always seem to be where they should be. Also, you can make a change to the path of a funnel and it won't take. You don't receive any sort of message to tell you why, it just doesn't work. After putting in a ticket, I learned that you can't have the same path name for two funnels, even if they are under different URLs. Not sure why this is the case.
I know a lot of advanced internet marketers have teams of VA’s who handle their pages and set ups (as do I), so you want to make sure that they know what they’re doing. Most (good/smart) VAs will be able to learn LeadPages pretty quickly as it’s been around for a while, but just make sure you have them learn how to use ClickFunnels effectively because the worst thing is spending money on the new software only to have realized nothings been happening the entire time!
Priority Email Support (Value: Priceless): Under this offer, I'll provide top-notch tech support. My support is typically faster than official support, so if you get stuck (and you will), I am here for you. Also, If you ever feel overwhelmed or have questions you can’t find the answers to, I’m just a quick message away. You get access to my personal email address with a guaranteed response to any questions you have (invaluable).
Actionetics is ClickFunnels’ e-mail automation application which is native to ClickFunnels. Producing e-mails and messages are facilitated with the e-mail builder which has a nearly similar characteristic to the funnel builder. Another cool aspect of Actionetics is its Action Funnels function. Action Funnels let you hyper-segment contacts to set off specific actions whether it is internal or external. Internal actions consist of being eliminated to an email list, added to email list, etc. External actions include being able to get email series.
The full Etison suite allows you to set up an unlimited number of funnels, meaning that the marketing possibilities are endless. Similarly, you are also able to host an unlimited number of users in your membership funnel, which is very useful. You can also set up an unlimited number of pages per funnel, giving you unparalleled control and power. Put simply, the Etison suite gives you limitless power and access with regards to marketing funnels.
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.
