So, What is Clickfunnels? Optimizepress Navigation Menu
Since Clickfunnels does so many things, it’s difficult to hard to articulate simply what it is in simply one word.Optimizepress Navigation Menu
Is it a Landing Page and Sales Page Designer/Editor?
To begin, it’s an easy to utilize page designer, like we know from other systems like LeadPages. Similar to LeadPages, they provide a long list of design templates and let you alter any material you like, nevertheless, restricted to the fields that the design template offers you with.
This provides you some incredible looking pages without you needing to be a designer or designer (and even pay for one).
Over the previous couple 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 might sidetrack a bit, however I was really disappointed with OptimizePress 2.x when it came out, since it was sluggish and I actually simply 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 lot of landing pages on their platform. Most of the time getting a 40%+ conversion even without me is being a professional copywriter.
They are still including design templates and they are also starting a marketplace where you can upload your own templates as well as sell them (similar to LeadPages I might add).
But wait there’s more … But now the resemblances to other systems stop. Because, as the name indicates, the core of Clickfunnels is not the page itself, but the sales funnel that it is a part of. Clickfunnels understand that a landing or sales page will never stand alone, it will always be a part of any part of the funnel.
So besides the page designer, you can create your whole sales funnel inside the system.
However 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 causes a thank you page? That includes a live webinar page? That has a page for the replay? That causes a sales page?
No problem, Clickfunnels has you covered.
Really, you can do webinars and membership sites directly from Clickfunnels . No have to utilize other systems. I know that LeadPages likewise have some design templates for webinars, but they do not have the option to send out e-mails to different segments, like “send out email to all who did not take part” or “send out email to all who saw but didn’t see the offer”. Clickfunnels can do this!
Heck, I’m presently utilizing the Easy Webinar Plugin and it can’t segment 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.
Exactly what I like about Clickfunnels
So why am I truly thrilled about Clickfunnels?
To begin with I like its focus on the entire funnel! More pricey CRM systems like InfusionSoft normally have a focus on the lead/customer and how their behaviors are, in time, and can also setup processes that people make it through, however, they do not have a page designer that is as easy to utilize (with top converting templates), and also do not have all the add-ons like webinars and membership websites.
Second, I actually like that it is “self-contained”. This one system will literally be able to replace 3-4 other systems I’m currently using (like my webinar system, billing system, split screening system and page designer).
It really has huge capacity.
What I Do Not Like About Clickfunnels
While it was in beta, there were still a bunch of minor problems in the design templates. The designer works truly well, however the real design templates are rather malfunctioning. Likewise, I discovered a number of templates where you might not alter all texts, which is sort of a program stopper for me when I want to utilize it for the Danish market (and I can’t alter the English words).
This has enhanced a lot with the general public version 2.x release.
Also the rate point might turn some people off. Today the rate point is $97 per month, which is more than a system like LeadPages. Nevertheless, 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.
Since I’m the one that is utilizing WordPress for practically whatever, I type of miss the awesome WordPress combination that LeadPages has. Sure, you can embed something on your site using an iFrame, however that’s just a “hack”.Optimizepress Navigation Menu
So instead of having the landing page straight on your website, you will typically create a subdomain and point that to Clickfunnels. That suggests that if your website was called “awesomeness.com”, you might 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 whatever, you might refrain from doing the specific thing as well as 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 get any technical abilities, do not require paying a designer each time you need a page, however still desire leading converting landing and sales pages? Then Clickfunnels must be something you would wish to have a look at.
I have actually been a pleased customer with LeadPages up until now; nevertheless, I haven’t seen anything like Clickfunnels to date. No other item tries to incorporate the whole sales process like Clickfunnels does.

Clickfunnels Automated Webinar – choose page template.
This is incredibly simple to do, and bear in mind that split testing is built in, so you can rapidly test 2 different design templates versus each other. In the automated webinar, you have to choose design templates for the following pages:.
Those are the actual pages in the wizard; nevertheless I usually likewise include a sales page to the end of the funnel (because I wish to sell something on the webinar).
After the wizard the funnel is shown 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 super easy to use. I didn’t think it might be a lot easier than LeadPages, but I have to admit that the Clickfunnels page editor works very well. It’s easy and quick to alter all the texts and images, and it’s also easier to leap in between steps in the funnel right from within the editor.Optimizepress Navigation Menu
4) Select automated webinar times
Also see that you can of course still do live webinars at a particular date and time utilizing Clickfunnels, it’s just the automated once that are a bit restricted functionality (and I believe that this will alter as soon as the platform grows).
5) Setup the e-mail series
In the last step I modify the automated e-mails that head out to the webinar participants.
Clickfunnels can target different audiences among the webinar signups.
– As the name suggests, it targets all who register to the webinar.
- Missed out on webinar
– Individuals who register, however didn’t see the webinar.
- Attended but missed deal
– People who observed a few of the webinar however did not beat around up until the deal was submitted.
- Saw deal but didn’t purchase
– People who did see the offer but did not choose to buy.
– Individuals who acquired your item.
Each of these segments can be sent out at different times based on the date and time of the webinar. So you can send out tips out to everyone prior to the webinar starts, and you can target individuals who saw the deal however didn’t buy 2 days after the webinar.
6) Setup items and up sells
Lastly, you hardly require including a sales page and any you may want in your funnel. It’s just as easy as modifying the webinar pages.
And that’s it, in the video above I go through, all the actions revealing you precisely how doing it.
How Does Clickfunnels Stack Up Against the Competition
But as I composed in the start, there are other page builders out there. So how does it match up against these?
( If you want to see contrasts between Clickfunnels and other systems, let me know and I may include them).
Clickfunnels vs LeadPages
Enable me start out by mentioning that I’ve been really pleased with my LeadPages subscription. They have some incredible templates and a quite steady system that just works.
Their assistance is fantastic; nevertheless they have a great deal of consumers so not incredibly fast.
Clickfunnels has an even better editor (in my viewpoint) than LeadPages and they have an extremely fast assistance. However that might be because they are a new service and they don’t have that numerous customers.
However Clickfunnels really go beyond the entire page designer thing. While LeadPages likewise has templates for webinars, they are just that just templates. They look remarkable, however do not consist of any special webinar performance. You can sign up and see 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 wished to. They also have other functions like the LeadBoxes that produces good popups on your page.
Now this is just my own analysis of the scenario, however I think that LeadPages has felt the breath of this newbie in the neck, due to the fact that recently Lead Pages have actually had a really aggressive method for getting you to either upgrade or extend your subscription for 1-2 years. But once again, it’s simply excellent service to bind your customers to your platform for a longer duration, so perhaps it’s just an coincidence.
The Clickfunnels version 2.0 is a quite huge re-write from the beta variation that I original worked with (and wrote about). So a great deal of the “beta bugs” have actually been ironed out. So they are truly striving on getting the system best.
So today, I’m thinking about canceling my LeadPages account.Optimizepress Navigation Menu
Clickfunnels vs OptimizePress 2.x
I was never actually that keen on OptimizePress 2.x. I actually liked OptimizePress 1.x and just wanted more and better looking templates in 2.x. Nevertheless they created an incredibly sluggish drag and drop page builder. Now it has most likely enhanced, however there were a lots of bugs when they first introduced it. I purchased it, but have actually actually never used it for anything other than tests.
Originally OptimizePress 2.x had one advantage over page contractors like LeadPages and Clickfunnels, and that was that it was possible to completely change the design template. That indicates including new items or eliminating existing. However with variation 2.x that is now likewise possible in Clickfunnels. And it works way much better (not to state method much faster) than the OptimizePress editor.
I think it’s an intentional choice from LeadPages (and originally also for Clickfunnels prior to they altered it), since it’s much easier to give you some rocking design templates that are currently converting and getting them to convert for you to. So you can’t actually mess the design template up excessive.
However I still think that Clickfunnels has actually done the best thing by making the editor much more versatile, while still providing some kick ass templates.
So there you have it, I’m truly delighted about Clickfunnels.
