So, What is Clickfunnels? Optimizepress Version
Since Clickfunnels does so lots of things, it’s tough to challenging to articulate just exactly what it remains in just one word.Optimizepress Version
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 templates and let you alter any material you like, nevertheless, confined to the fields that the template provides you with.
This gives you some amazing looking pages without you having to be a designer or designer (or perhaps pay for one).
Over the previous couple of years we’ve seen a great deal of these page designers, some offer more flexibility, 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 templates.
I may sidetrack a bit, but I was really disappointed with OptimizePress 2.x when it came out, since it was slow and I truly just wanted some good looking page design templates for my landing and sales pages.
And then I’ve gotten on the LeadPages bandwagon and done a lot of landing pages on their platform. The majority of the time getting a 40%+ conversion even without me is being a professional copywriter.
They are still adding templates and they are likewise beginning a market where you can submit your own templates and even offer them (similar to LeadPages I might add).
However wait there’s more … But now the similarities to other systems stop. Because, as the name indicates, the core of Clickfunnels is not the page itself, however the sales funnel that it is a part 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 create your whole sales funnel inside the system.
However that is not all; Clickfunnels comes not only with page design templates but likewise funnel templates. Wish 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 problem, Clickfunnels has you covered.
In fact, you can do webinars and subscription websites straight from Clickfunnels . No have to use other systems. I understand that LeadPages also have some templates for webinars, but they do not have the alternative to send out e-mails to various sections, like “send e-mail to all who did not take part” or “send out email to all who viewed however didn’t see the deal”. Clickfunnels can do this!
Heck, I’m currently using the Easy Webinar Plugin and it can’t sector e-mails like this.
Another thing to note is that Clickfunnels even does billing right inside the system. You can in a couple of minutes connect a Stripe account with your Clickfunnels account and bingo! You can now make sales straight from inside your sales pages in Clickfunnels.
Exactly what I like about Clickfunnels
So why am I truly thrilled about Clickfunnels?
First of all I like its concentrate on the whole funnel! More pricey CRM systems like InfusionSoft normally have a concentrate on the lead/customer and how their habits are, gradually, and can also setup processes that people get through, however, they do not have a page designer that is as simple to utilize (with leading transforming templates), and also do not have all the add-ons like webinars and membership sites.
Second, I in fact 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, divided screening system and page designer).
It actually has huge potential.
What I Do Not Like About Clickfunnels
While it remained in beta, there were still a lot of small problems in the templates. The designer works actually well, however the actual design templates are rather faulty. Also, I discovered numerous design templates where you might not change all texts, which is kind of a show stopper for me when I wish to use it for the Danish market (and I cannot change the English words).
This has actually improved a lot with the public variation 2.x release.
Likewise the cost point might turn some individuals off. Today the rate point is $97 monthly, 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 think it’s a quite fair prices.
Considering that I’m the one that is using WordPress for practically whatever, I sort of miss the remarkable WordPress integration that LeadPages has. Sure, you can embed something on your site utilizing an iFrame, but that’s just a “hack”.Optimizepress Version
So rather of having the landing page straight on your site, you will typically develop a subdomain and point that to Clickfunnels. That means that if your site was called “awesomeness.com”, you might develop 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 in addition to others who are concentrated on this. I have not attempted the subscription part of Clickfunnels, and I most likely will not replace my WordPress and Wishlist Member combo out anytime quickly.
If you do not get any technical abilities, do not need paying a designer each time you need a page, however still want top converting landing and sales pages? Then Clickfunnels need to be something you would wish to check out.
I have actually been a satisfied consumer with LeadPages up previously; however, I haven’t seen anything like Clickfunnels to date. No other item aims to integrate the entire sales procedure like Clickfunnels does.

Clickfunnels Automated Webinar – choose page template.
This is incredibly basic to do, and bear in mind that split screening is built in, so you can rapidly evaluate 2 various templates against each other. In the automated webinar, you have to pick design templates for the following pages:.
Those are the real pages in the wizard; however I typically also include a sales page to the end of the funnel (considering that I want to sell something on the webinar).
After the wizard the funnel is displayed perfectly as a list of pages where I can track the conversion from each action to the next.

3) Write the copy for the pages
Next I go into each of the pages and change the copy so it’s appropriate to my webinar.
The Clickfunnels editor is incredibly simple to utilize. I didn’t believe it might be a lot easier than LeadPages, but I have to admit that the Clickfunnels page editor works extremely well. It’s simple and quick to change all the texts and images, and it’s likewise much easier to jump in between actions in the funnel right from within the editor.Optimizepress Version
4) Select automated webinar times
Also discover that you can of course still do live webinars at a specific date and time utilizing Clickfunnels, it’s only the automated once that are a bit restricted functionality (and I think that this will alter once the platform develops).
5) Setup the email sequence
In the last action I modify the automated emails that go out to the webinar participants.
Clickfunnels can target different audiences among the webinar signups.
– As the name implies, it targets all who sign up to the webinar.
- Missed webinar
– Individuals who register, however didn’t see the webinar.
- Participated in however missed offer
– Individuals who observed some of the webinar however did not beat around up until the offer was sent.
- Saw deal but didn’t purchase
– People who did see the offer however did not choose to acquire.
– People who bought your product.
Each of these sections can be sent out at different times based upon 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 people who saw the offer 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 might desire in your funnel. It’s just as easy as editing the webinar pages.
And that’s it, in the video above I go through, all the actions showing you precisely how doing it.
How Does Clickfunnels Stack Up Against the Competition
But 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 in between Clickfunnels and other systems, let me understand and I may include them).
Clickfunnels vs LeadPages
Enable me start by stating that I’ve been actually pleased with my LeadPages subscription. They have some incredible templates and a quite steady system that just works.
Their support is fantastic; nevertheless they have a great deal of customers so not very quick.
Clickfunnels has an even better editor (in my viewpoint) than LeadPages and they have a very quick support. However that might be due to the fact that they are a new service and they don’t have that many consumers.
Nevertheless Clickfunnels really surpass the entire page designer thing. While LeadPages also has design templates for webinars, they are simply that just design templates. They look incredible, however do not contain any special webinar performance. You can register and see the webinar.
LeadPages does however have an amazing WordPress combination and you can even download the raw HTML and stick it by yourself server if you wished to. They also have other features like the LeadBoxes that creates nice popups on your page.
Now this is just my own analysis of the scenario, nevertheless I believe that LeadPages has felt the breath of this beginner in the neck, because recently Lead Pages have had a really aggressive strategy for getting you to either upgrade or extend your membership for 1-2 years. However once again, it’s simply excellent organisation to bind your customers to your platform for a longer duration, so maybe it’s simply an coincidence.
The Clickfunnels version 2.0 is a pretty huge re-write from the beta variation that I initial worked with (and wrote about). So a great deal of the “beta bugs” have actually been straightened out. So they are really working hard on getting the system ideal.
So today, I’m considering canceling my LeadPages account.Optimizepress Version
Clickfunnels vs OptimizePress 2.x
I was never truly that fond of OptimizePress 2.x. I really liked OptimizePress 1.x and simply wanted more and much better looking design templates in 2.x. However they created an incredibly sluggish drag and drop page home builder. Now it has actually most likely enhanced, but there were a lots of bugs when they initially released it. I bought it, but have really never ever utilized it for anything aside from tests.
Initially OptimizePress 2.x had one benefit over page builders like LeadPages and Clickfunnels, and that was that it was possible to totally alter the template. That suggests including brand-new products or eliminating existing. However with version 2.x that is now also possible in Clickfunnels. And it works way better (not to state method faster) than the OptimizePress editor.
I think it’s an intentional choice from LeadPages (and originally likewise for Clickfunnels before they altered it), because it’s a lot easier to offer you some rocking templates that are currently transforming and getting them to transform for you to. So you cannot truly mess the template up excessive.
Nevertheless I still think that Clickfunnels has done the ideal thing by making the editor much more versatile, while still providing some kick ass templates.
So there you have it, I’m really thrilled about Clickfunnels.
