So, What is Clickfunnels? Optimizepress Video Background
Since Clickfunnels does so numerous things, it’s tough to tough to articulate just what it is in simply one word.Optimizepress Video Background
Is it a Landing Page and Sales Page Designer/Editor?
To start, it’s an easy to utilize page designer, like we know from other systems like LeadPages. Just like LeadPages, they offer a long list of templates and let you alter any material you like, however, confined to the fields that the design template provides you with.
This gives you some remarkable looking pages without you having to be a designer or developer (or even pay for one).
Over the past few 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, but I was really dissatisfied with OptimizePress 2.x when it came out, since it was slow and I really simply wanted some good looking page 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 adding design templates and they are also beginning a marketplace where you can publish your very own design templates and even offer them (just like LeadPages I might add).
However wait there’s more … But now the resemblances to other systems stop. Because, as the name implies, 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 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.
However that is not all; Clickfunnels comes not just with page templates but likewise funnel templates. Wish to make a funnel with a landing for a webinar registration page? That results in 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.
Really, you can do webinars and membership sites directly from Clickfunnels . No have to utilize other systems. I understand that LeadPages also have some design templates for webinars, however they do not have the option to send emails to various sections, like “send email to all who did not get involved” or “send out email to all who saw but 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 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 really excited about Clickfunnels?
To begin with I like its concentrate on the entire funnel! More costly CRM systems like InfusionSoft generally have a focus on the lead/customer and how their behaviors are, in time, and can also setup processes that individuals make it through, nevertheless, they do not have a page designer that is as simple to use (with top converting templates), and also don’t have all the add-ons like webinars and membership websites.
Second, I actually like that it is “self-contained”. This one system will actually be able to change 3-4 other systems I’m currently utilizing (like my webinar system, billing system, divided testing system and page designer).
It actually has enormous potential.
What I Do Not Like About Clickfunnels
While it was in beta, there were still a lot of small glitches in the templates. The designer works really well, but the real design templates are rather defective. Also, I discovered a number of templates where you could not change all texts, which is type of a program stopper for me when I want to use it for the Danish market (and I can’t alter the English words).
This has enhanced a lot with the public variation 2.x release.
Also the rate point might turn some individuals off. Today the cost point is $97 per month, which is more than a system like LeadPages. Nevertheless, if you take a look at what you’re in fact getting and all the other systems you can change, I think it’s a quite fair pricing.
Since I’m the one that is using WordPress for practically everything, I type of miss the remarkable WordPress integration that LeadPages has. Sure, you can embed something on your site using an iFrame, but that’s simply a “hack”.Optimizepress Video Background
So instead of having the landing page directly on your site, you will usually create a subdomain and point that to Clickfunnels. That indicates that if your site 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 everything, you may refrain from doing the individual thing as well as others who are specialized in this. I have not attempted the membership part of Clickfunnels, and I probably will not replace my WordPress and Wishlist Member combo out anytime quickly.
If you do not receive any technical skills, do not need paying a designer each time you require a page, however still want top converting landing and sales pages? Then Clickfunnels need to be something you would want to check out.
I have actually been a satisfied consumer with LeadPages up previously; however, I have not seen anything like Clickfunnels to this day. No other item tries to incorporate the whole sales procedure like Clickfunnels does.

Clickfunnels Automated Webinar – select page template.
This is incredibly basic to do, and remember that split testing is integrated in, so you can quickly check 2 various design templates versus each other. In the automated webinar, you have to pick design templates for the following pages:.
Those are the actual pages in the wizard; nevertheless I generally likewise add 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 well 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 extremely easy to utilize. I didn’t believe it could be a lot easier than LeadPages, but I need to confess that the Clickfunnels page editor works extremely well. It’s easy and quick to change all the texts and images, and it’s likewise simpler to jump in between steps in the funnel right from within the editor.Optimizepress Video Background
4) Select automated webinar times
Also see that you can naturally still do live webinars at a particular date and time utilizing Clickfunnels, it’s only the automated once that are a bit minimal functionality (and I believe that this will change once the platform matures).
5) Setup the email sequence
In the last action I edit the automated emails that head out to the webinar participants.
Clickfunnels can target various audiences among the webinar signups.
– As the name implies, it targets all who sign up to the webinar.
- Missed out on webinar
– Individuals who sign up, but didn’t see the webinar.
- Attended but missed out on deal
– People who observed some of the webinar but did not beat around up until the deal was sent.
- Saw offer however didn’t purchase
– People who did see the offer but did not choose to purchase.
– Individuals who acquired your item.
Each of these sectors can be sent out at various times based upon the date and time of the webinar. So you can send out suggestions out to everybody prior to the webinar begins, and you can target people who saw the deal but didn’t buy 2 days after the webinar.
6) Setup items and up offers
Finally, you barely need adding a sales page and any you might 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 showing you precisely 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 compare against these?
( If you wish to see comparisons in between Clickfunnels and other systems, let me understand and I might add them).
Clickfunnels vs LeadPages
Allow me start by stating that I’ve been really gratified with my LeadPages membership. They have some amazing design templates and a pretty steady system that just works.
Their support is great; however they have a great deal of clients so not extremely quick.
However Clickfunnels really surpass the whole page designer thing. While LeadPages likewise has templates for webinars, they are just that simply templates. They look awesome, but do not include any unique webinar performance. You can sign up and view the webinar.
LeadPages does however have an incredible WordPress integration and you can even download the raw HTML and stick it on your own server if you wanted to. They also have other functions like the LeadBoxes that produces nice popups on your page.
Now this is simply my own analysis of the scenario, however I think that LeadPages has felt the breath of this beginner in the neck, since recently Lead Pages have had a very aggressive technique for getting you to either upgrade or extend your subscription for 1-2 years. But once again, it’s just good company to bind your clients to your platform for a longer period, so maybe it’s just an coincidence.
The Clickfunnels version 2.0 is a quite huge re-write from the beta version that I original worked with (and blogged about). So a lot of the “beta bugs” have actually been ironed out. So they are actually striving on getting the system best.
So right now, I’m thinking about canceling my LeadPages account.Optimizepress Video Background
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 design templates in 2.x. However they developed a super slow drag and drop page builder. Now it has actually most likely improved, but there were a ton of bugs when they initially released it. I bought it, however have actually actually never used it for anything besides tests.
Originally OptimizePress 2.x had one advantage over page builders like LeadPages and Clickfunnels, and that was that it was possible to totally change the template. That implies including new items or getting rid of existing. However with version 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 believe it’s a deliberate choice from LeadPages (and originally likewise for Clickfunnels prior to they altered it), due to the fact that it’s a lot easier to give you some rocking templates that are already converting and getting them to transform for you to. So you can’t really mess the design template up excessive.
Nevertheless I still believe that Clickfunnels has actually done the best thing by making the editor a lot more versatile, while still providing some kick ass templates.
So there you have it, I’m truly excited about Clickfunnels.
