So, What is Clickfunnels? Optimizepress Menu Bar
Since Clickfunnels does so numerous things, it’s difficult to tough to articulate simply what it remains in simply one word.Optimizepress Menu Bar
Is it a Landing Page and Sales Page Designer/Editor?
To start out, it’s a simple to use page designer, like we understand from other systems like LeadPages. Similar to LeadPages, they provide a long list of templates and let you change any material you like, nevertheless, confined to the fields that the design template provides you with.
This provides you some incredible looking pages without you needing to be a designer or developer (or even spend for one).
Over the previous number of years we’ve seen a great deal 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 on design templates.
I may sidetrack a bit, but I was really dissatisfied with OptimizePress 2.x when it came out, since it was slow and I really simply desired some nice 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. Most of the time getting a 40%+ conversion even without me is being an expert copywriter.
They are still including design templates and they are also beginning a marketplace where you can submit your very own templates as well as sell them (similar to LeadPages I might add).
However wait there’s more … But now the similarities to other systems stop. Since, as the name indicates, the core of Clickfunnels is not the page itself, but the sales funnel that it belongs of. Clickfunnels understand that a landing or sales page will never ever stand alone, it will always be a part of any part of the funnel.
So besides the page designer, you can produce your whole sales funnel inside the system.
But that is not all; Clickfunnels comes not only with page templates but also funnel templates. Wish to make a funnel with a landing for a webinar registration page? That causes a thank you page? That consists of a live webinar page? That has a page for the replay? That leads to a sales page?
No problem, Clickfunnels has you covered.
Actually, you can do webinars and subscription sites directly from Clickfunnels . No have to utilize other systems. I understand that LeadPages likewise have some templates for webinars, however they do not have the option to send e-mails to different sections, like “send out e-mail to all who did not get involved” or “send out e-mail to all who enjoyed however didn’t see the offer”. Clickfunnels can do this!
Heck, I’m presently using the Easy Webinar Plugin and it can’t sector emails like this.
Another thing to note is that Clickfunnels even does billing ideal inside the system. You can in a few minutes link 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 truly excited about Clickfunnels?
First off I like its focus on the whole funnel! More pricey CRM systems like InfusionSoft generally have a focus on the lead/customer and how their behaviors are, over time, and can also setup processes that individuals survive, however, they do not have a page designer that is as easy to use (with top converting 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 literally be able to change 3-4 other systems I’m currently utilizing (like my webinar system, billing system, split testing system and page designer).
It really has massive potential.
What I Do Not Like About Clickfunnels
While it remained in beta, there were still a bunch of minor problems in the design templates. The designer works truly well, however the actual design templates are quite faulty. Also, I discovered several design templates where you could not alter all texts, which is sort of a program stopper for me when I wish to use it for the Danish market (and I cannot alter the English words).
This has improved a lot with the general public variation 2.x release.
Likewise the price point may turn some individuals off. Right now the cost point is $97 monthly, which is more than a system like LeadPages. Nevertheless, if you look at exactly what you’re really getting and all the other systems you can change, I think it’s a quite reasonable prices.
Because I’m the one that is utilizing WordPress for practically whatever, I kind of miss out on the incredible WordPress combination that LeadPages has. Sure, you can embed something on your website utilizing an iFrame, but that’s just a “hack”.Optimizepress Menu Bar
So rather of having the landing page directly on your website, you will generally create a subdomain and point that to Clickfunnels. That implies that if your website was called “awesomeness.com”, you could produce a “flow.awesomeness.com” and point that domain to Clickfunnels and have all your Clickfunnels pages being served from that.
When you attempt to do whatever, you might not do the individual thing as well as others who are concentrated on this. I haven’t tried the subscription part of Clickfunnels, and I most likely won’t change my WordPress and Wishlist Member combo out anytime quickly.
If you do not receive any technical abilities, don’t require paying a designer each time you need a page, however still desire top converting landing and sales pages? Then Clickfunnels need to be something you would wish to check out.
I have been a satisfied consumer with LeadPages up previously; nevertheless, I have not seen anything like Clickfunnels to date. No other item tries to integrate the whole sales procedure like Clickfunnels does.

This is extremely simple to do, and keep in mind that split testing is integrated in, so you can rapidly evaluate two various design templates against each other. In the automated webinar, you need to choose templates for the following pages:.
Those are the real pages in the wizard; nevertheless I generally also add a sales page to the end of the funnel (considering that I wish to sell something on the webinar).
After the wizard the funnel is shown perfectly 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 enter into each of the pages and alter the copy so it’s appropriate to my webinar.
The Clickfunnels editor is extremely easy to use. I didn’t believe it could be a lot easier than LeadPages, however I need to admit that the Clickfunnels page editor works very well. It’s easy and fast to change all the texts and images, and it’s also much easier to jump between steps in the funnel right from within the editor.Optimizepress Menu Bar
4) Select automated webinar times
Also see that you can of course still do live webinars at a particular date and time using Clickfunnels, it’s only the automated once that are a bit limited performance (and I believe that this will change as soon as the platform grows).
5) Setup the email series
In the last step I edit the automated e-mails that go out to the webinar participants.
Clickfunnels can target different audiences among the webinar signups.
– As the name suggests, it targets all who sign up to the webinar.
- Missed out on webinar
– Individuals who register, but didn’t see the webinar.
- Attended but missed out on deal
– Individuals who observed a few of the webinar however did not beat around until the offer was submitted.
- Saw deal but didn’t purchase
– People who did see the deal however did not decide to buy.
– People who purchased your item.
Each of these sectors can be sent at different times based upon the date and time of the webinar. So you can send out pointers out to everybody before the webinar starts, and you can target people who saw the deal but didn’t buy 2 days after the webinar.
6) Setup products and up offers
Finally, you hardly need adding a sales page and any you may want in your funnel. It’s just as easy as modifying the webinar pages.
Which’s it, in the video above I go through, all the steps revealing you precisely how doing it.
How Does Clickfunnels Stack Up Against the Competition
However as I composed in the start, there are other page contractors out there. So how does it match up versus these?
( If you wish to see contrasts in between Clickfunnels and other systems, let me understand and I might add them).
Clickfunnels vs LeadPages
Permit me start out by mentioning that I’ve been truly pleased with my LeadPages subscription. They have some incredible templates and a quite steady system that simply works.
Their assistance is great; nevertheless they have a lot of consumers so not very quick.
Clickfunnels has an even much better editor (in my viewpoint) than LeadPages and they have a super fast support. But that may be due to the fact that they are a brand-new service and they don’t have that numerous customers.
Nevertheless Clickfunnels truly exceed the entire page designer thing. While LeadPages likewise has design templates for webinars, they are just that merely design templates. They look remarkable, but do not consist of any special webinar performance. You can sign up and watch the webinar.
LeadPages does however have an amazing WordPress combination and you can even download the raw HTML and stick it on your own server if you wanted to. They likewise have other features like the LeadBoxes that creates good popups on your page.
Now this is simply my own analysis of the circumstance, nevertheless I believe that LeadPages has actually felt the breath of this beginner in the neck, due to the fact that recently Lead Pages have had a really aggressive strategy for getting you to either upgrade or extend your subscription for 1-2 years. However again, it’s just good business to bind your clients to your platform for a longer duration, so perhaps it’s simply an coincidence.
The Clickfunnels variation 2.0 is a pretty huge re-write from the beta variation that I original dealt with (and wrote about). So a great deal of the “beta bugs” have actually been ironed out. So they are truly working hard on getting the system perfect.
So today, I’m considering canceling my LeadPages account.Optimizepress Menu Bar
Clickfunnels vs OptimizePress 2.x
I was never ever truly that fond of OptimizePress 2.x. I truly liked OptimizePress 1.x and just desired more and better looking templates in 2.x. Nevertheless they created an extremely slow drag and drop page home builder. Now it has most likely improved, however there were a lots of bugs when they initially introduced it. I purchased it, but have actually actually never utilized it for anything other than tests.
Initially OptimizePress 2.x had one advantage over page home builders like LeadPages and Clickfunnels, and that was that it was possible to entirely change the design template. That indicates including new products or eliminating existing. However with version 2.x that is now also possible in Clickfunnels. And it works way better (not to say way quicker) than the OptimizePress editor.
I believe it’s a purposeful choice from LeadPages (and initially also for Clickfunnels before they altered it), because it’s a lot easier to give you some rocking templates that are already transforming and getting them to transform for you to. So you can’t really mess the template up excessive.
However I still believe that Clickfunnels has 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 truly delighted about Clickfunnels.
