So, What is Clickfunnels? Leadpages Board Members
Since Clickfunnels does so lots of things, it’s difficult to challenging to articulate simply what it is in just one word.Leadpages Board Members
Is it a Landing Page and Sales Page Designer/Editor?
To start, it’s an easy to use page designer, like we understand from other systems like LeadPages. Similar to LeadPages, they use a long list of templates and let you change any content you like, however, restricted to the fields that the design template provides you with.
This offers you some awesome looking pages without you having to be a designer or designer (or perhaps spend for one).
Over the past number of years we’ve seen a lot of these page designers, some offer more freedom, like the Optimize Press 2.x plugin that is more a drag and drop designer, and in the other end of the scale LeadPages which it’s based upon design templates.
I may sidetrack a bit, however I was actually disappointed with OptimizePress 2.x when it came out, due to the fact that it was slow and I really just desired some great looking page design templates for my landing and sales pages.
And then I’ve jumped on the LeadPages bandwagon and done a bunch of landing pages on their platform. The majority of the time getting a 40%+ conversion even without me is being an expert copywriter.
They are still including design templates and they are likewise beginning a market where you can upload your own design templates as well as offer them (much like LeadPages I may include).
However wait there’s more … But now the similarities to other systems stop. Due to the fact that, as the name implies, the core of Clickfunnels is not the page itself, but the sales funnel that it belongs of. Clickfunnels know that a landing or sales page will never stand alone, it will constantly belong of any part of the funnel.
So besides the page designer, you can produce your entire sales funnel inside the system.
But that is not all; Clickfunnels comes not only with page design templates however likewise funnel design templates. Want to make a funnel with a landing for a webinar registration page? That leads to a thank you page? That consists of a live webinar page? That has a page for the replay? That causes a sales page?
No issue, Clickfunnels has you covered.
Actually, you can do webinars and membership sites straight from Clickfunnels . No need to utilize other systems. I understand that LeadPages likewise have some templates for webinars, however they do not have the alternative to send out emails to different sections, like “send email to all who did not get involved” or “send out email to all who watched but didn’t see the deal”. Clickfunnels can do this!
Heck, I’m presently using the Easy Webinar Plugin and it can’t section e-mails like this.
Another thing to note is that Clickfunnels even does billing ideal inside the system. You can in a few minutes connect a Stripe account with your Clickfunnels account and bingo! You can now make sales directly from inside your sales pages in Clickfunnels.
What I like about Clickfunnels
So why am I really delighted about Clickfunnels?
First off I like its focus on the whole funnel! More expensive CRM systems like InfusionSoft typically have a focus on the lead/customer and how their behaviors are, gradually, and can likewise setup processes that people make it through, nevertheless, they do not have a page designer that is as simple to utilize (with leading converting design templates), and also do not have all the add-ons like webinars and subscription sites.
Second, I in fact like that it is “self-contained”. This one system will actually have the ability to change 3-4 other systems I’m presently using (like my webinar system, billing system, divided screening system and page designer).
It truly has massive potential.
What I Do Not Like About Clickfunnels
While it remained in beta, there were still a lot of minor problems in the design templates. The designer works really well, but the actual design templates are rather malfunctioning. Also, I discovered several templates where you could not change all texts, which is sort of a show stopper for me when I wish to utilize it for the Danish market (and I cannot change the English words).
This has enhanced a lot with the general public version 2.x release.
Likewise the price point may turn some individuals off. Right now the rate point is $97 monthly, which is more than a system like LeadPages. However, if you look at what you’re actually getting and all the other systems you can change, I believe it’s a rather fair pricing.
Considering that I’m the one that is utilizing WordPress for practically whatever, I sort of miss the remarkable WordPress combination that LeadPages has. Sure, you can embed something on your site using an iFrame, but that’s just a “hack”.Leadpages Board Members
So rather of having the landing page directly on your website, you will usually produce a subdomain and point that to Clickfunnels. That implies that if your site was called “awesomeness.com”, you could create a “flow.awesomeness.com” and point that domain to Clickfunnels and have all your Clickfunnels pages being served from that.
When you aim to do everything, you might not do the individual thing in addition to others who are specialized in this. I haven’t tried the subscription part of Clickfunnels, and I most likely will not replace my WordPress and Wishlist Member combo out anytime soon.
If you don’t receive any technical abilities, do not need paying a designer each time you need a page, but still want leading transforming landing and sales pages? Then Clickfunnels ought to be something you would wish to take a look at.
I have actually been a satisfied customer with LeadPages up previously; however, I haven’t seen anything like Clickfunnels to this day. No other product attempts to integrate the whole sales procedure like Clickfunnels does.

After the wizard the funnel is displayed nicely as a list of pages where I can track the conversion from each step to the next.

3) Write the copy for the pages
Next I go into each of the pages and alter the copy so it’s pertinent to my webinar.
The Clickfunnels editor is extremely simple to utilize. I didn’t think it might be a lot easier than LeadPages, however I need to admit that the Clickfunnels page editor works exceptionally well. It’s easy and fast to alter all the texts and images, and it’s likewise simpler to leap between actions in the funnel right from within the editor.Leadpages Board Members
4) Select automated webinar times
Also discover that you can obviously still do live webinars at a particular date and time using Clickfunnels, it’s just the automated once that are a bit limited performance (and I think that this will alter when the platform develops).
5) Setup the e-mail sequence
In the last action I edit the automated emails that head out to the webinar participants.
Clickfunnels can target various audiences amongst the webinar signups.
– As the name suggests, it targets all who sign up to the webinar.

– Individuals who did see the offer but did not decide to purchase.
– Individuals who bought your item.
Each of these sections can be sent out at numerous times based on the date and time of the webinar. So you can send out pointers out to everyone prior to the webinar starts, and you can target people who saw the offer but didn’t acquire 2 days after the webinar.
6) Setup items and up offers
Finally, you barely require including a sales page and any you might want in your funnel. It’s just as simple as modifying the webinar pages.
And that’s it, in the video above I go through, all the actions showing you exactly how doing it.
How Does Clickfunnels Stack Up Against the Competition
However as I composed in the beginning, there are other page home builders out there. So how does it match up against these?
( If you wish to see comparisons between Clickfunnels and other systems, let me understand and I may include them).
Clickfunnels vs LeadPages
Permit me start out by specifying that I’ve been really gratified with my LeadPages subscription. They have some remarkable templates and a quite stable system that simply works.
Their assistance is terrific; however they have a lot of consumers so not extremely fast.
Clickfunnels has an even much better editor (in my viewpoint) than LeadPages and they have a super fast support. However that may be since they are a brand-new service and they don’t have that lots of clients.
However Clickfunnels truly surpass the entire page designer thing. While LeadPages also has design templates for webinars, they are just that simply templates. They look amazing, however do not contain any unique webinar performance. You can sign up and view the webinar.
LeadPages does however have a remarkable WordPress integration and you can even download the raw HTML and stick it by yourself server if you wanted to. They also have other functions like the LeadBoxes that produces great popups on your page.
Now this is just my own analysis of the circumstance, however I believe that LeadPages has actually felt the breath of this beginner in the neck, due to the fact that lately Lead Pages have had a very aggressive strategy for getting you to either upgrade or extend your membership for 1-2 years. But once again, it’s simply great company to bind your customers to your platform for a longer period, so perhaps it’s simply an coincidence.
The Clickfunnels version 2.0 is a quite big re-write from the beta variation that I initial dealt with (and blogged about). So a lot of the “beta bugs” have been straightened out. So they are actually working hard on getting the system ideal.
So right now, I’m thinking about canceling my LeadPages account.Leadpages Board Members
Clickfunnels vs OptimizePress 2.x
I was never ever really that fond of OptimizePress 2.x. I actually liked OptimizePress 1.x and simply desired more and much better looking templates in 2.x. Nevertheless they created a very sluggish drag and drop page contractor. Now it has most likely enhanced, however there were a lots of bugs when they initially released it. I purchased it, however have actually actually never used it for anything other than tests.
Initially OptimizePress 2.x had one advantage over page builders like LeadPages and Clickfunnels, and that was that it was possible to entirely alter the design template. That implies including brand-new products or removing existing. However with version 2.x that is now likewise possible in Clickfunnels. And it works way much better (not to say way faster) than the OptimizePress editor.
I think it’s an intentional choice from LeadPages (and initially likewise for Clickfunnels prior to they changed it), because it’s much easier to give you some rocking design templates that are already converting and getting them to convert for you to. So you can’t really mess the design template up too much.
Nevertheless I still think that Clickfunnels has actually done the right thing by making the editor a lot more flexible, while still offering some kick ass design templates.
So there you have it, I’m actually delighted about Clickfunnels.
