What is Clickfunnels?
To begin we need to understand what a Sales Funnel is and how it differs from a normal website, and then compare the benefits of a funnel.
For example, if we go to see the Microsoft.com site, a very famous site, you can see that it has many buttons and many options where those who view this site are easily distracted by the various options.
If we send people to our website with either Paid Traffic or Organic Traffic our consumers get lost or distracted between the various sections.
In contrast, a sales funnel is made for our consumer to follow step by step the things we want them to do, a website has too many distractions compared to a sales funnel.
Clickfunnels helps us to easily build Sales Funnels to capture the emails of our potential customers, or also to sell our products since it easily integrates with payment platforms such as Paypal and Stripe.
How to build a Sales funnel with Clickfunnels
ClickFunnels is a sales funnel builder, it is not a website builder, nor is it a blog builder. There are other similar programs like Builderall or Leadpages, but ClickFunnels is the most famous of these platforms.
First, you have to register ClickFunnels by clicking here, once you have registered you will access the desktop or Dashboard where we can see how many sales we have had today, in the last 7 days, the last 4 weeks, and the last 12 months.
Obviously, this is a trial account that I just created for the demo of this blog, so there are no sales here.
We can see how many visits we have received in our funnels, how many pages we have created, and also how many Funnels we have in our account.
To create a new Funnel simply click on the “Add New” button
We can choose between the two options “Cookbook Builder Process” or “Classic Funnel Builder“.
The Cookbook option is where you find all the templates that ClickFunnels has created.
In this case, we will choose Classic Funnel Builder which will then present us with 3 other options about the type of funnel we want to create, or we can also create one from scratch.
In the Marketplace we can use funnels that other people have created, some are very expensive at $300, $150, and some are free but not very good.
If we choose a Squeeze page, the funnel will be imported into our account where we can customize it as we wish. Just click on “Get Funnel”.
Once in our account, we can see the Funnel settings, change the name, link it to a domain, change the URL path and other basic options, configure payments, color, font size, styles, etc.
We can edit the steps of our funnel by configuring where we want our funnel to go every time a person clicks on the CTA buttons.
Split Testing with ClickFunnels
It is an option that has Clickfunnels that serves to compare which funnel has more conversions, we can create several funnels with some modifications and send traffic.
