So, What is Clickfunnels? Optimizepress Video Player
Since Clickfunnels does so numerous things, it’s tough to tough to articulate just what it remains in just one word.Optimizepress Video Player
Is it a Landing Page and Sales Page Designer/Editor?
To begin, it’s a simple to use page designer, like we know from other systems like LeadPages. Much like LeadPages, they use a long list of templates and let you alter any material you like, nevertheless, confined to the fields that the template supplies you with.
This provides you some awesome looking pages without you having to be a designer or developer (or even spend for one).
Over the past couple of years we’ve seen a lot of these page designers, some deal 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 actually disappointed with OptimizePress 2.x when it came out, due to the fact that it was sluggish and I actually just desired some great looking page 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. The majority of the time getting a 40%+ conversion even without me is being an expert copywriter.
They are still including templates and they are likewise beginning a market where you can upload your very own templates and even sell them (much like LeadPages I might include).
But wait there’s more … But now the similarities to other systems stop. Since, as the name implies, 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 stand alone, it will always be a part 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 but likewise funnel design 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 results in a sales page?
No issue, Clickfunnels has you covered.
In fact, you can do webinars and membership websites straight from Clickfunnels . No have to use other systems. I understand that LeadPages likewise have some templates for webinars, however they do not have the option to send out e-mails to various sectors, like “send email to all who did not get involved” or “send out email to all who viewed however didn’t see the deal”. Clickfunnels can do this!
Heck, I’m currently utilizing the Easy Webinar Plugin and it cannot segment emails like this.
Another thing to note is that Clickfunnels even does billing right inside the system. You can in a couple of minutes link a Stripe account with your Clickfunnels account and bingo! You can now make sales straight from inside your sales pages in Clickfunnels.
What I like about Clickfunnels
So why am I really excited about Clickfunnels?
First of all I like its concentrate on the whole funnel! More pricey CRM systems like InfusionSoft typically have a focus on the lead/customer and how their habits are, with time, and can likewise setup processes that people get through, however, they do not have a page designer that is as simple to use (with top converting design templates), and also don’t have all the add-ons like webinars and membership sites.
Second, I really like that it is “self-contained”. This one system will actually be able to change 3-4 other systems I’m currently using (like my webinar system, billing system, divided screening system and page designer).
It actually has enormous capacity.
What I Do Not Like About Clickfunnels
While it was in beta, there were still a bunch of minor problems in the templates. The designer works truly well, but the real templates are quite defective. Likewise, I discovered numerous templates where you might not alter all texts, which is kind of a show stopper for me when I want 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.
Also the price point may turn some people off. Right now the cost point is $97 per month, which is more than a system like LeadPages. Nevertheless, if you take a look at exactly what you’re in fact getting and all the other systems you can change, I think it’s a rather reasonable pricing.
Given that I’m the one that is utilizing WordPress for practically whatever, I sort of miss out on the awesome WordPress integration that LeadPages has. Sure, you can embed something on your site utilizing an iFrame, however that’s simply a “hack”.Optimizepress Video Player
So rather of having the landing page directly on your website, you will generally develop a subdomain and point that to Clickfunnels. That means 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 try to do whatever, you may refrain from doing the individual thing along with others who are concentrated on this. I haven’t tried the membership part of Clickfunnels, and I probably won’t 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 require a page, but still want top transforming landing and sales pages? Then Clickfunnels must be something you would want to take a look at.
I have actually been a satisfied consumer with LeadPages up previously; nevertheless, I haven’t seen anything like Clickfunnels to date. No other product tries to integrate the entire sales process like Clickfunnels does.

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 go into each of the pages and change the copy so it’s appropriate to my webinar.
The Clickfunnels editor is super easy 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 incredibly well. It’s easy and quick to change all the texts and images, and it’s likewise easier to jump between actions in the funnel right from within the editor.Optimizepress Video Player
4) Select automated webinar times
Likewise notice that you can of course still do live webinars at a specific date and time using Clickfunnels, it’s just the automated once that are a bit limited performance (and I believe that this will alter as soon as the platform matures).
5) Setup the email series
In the last step I modify the automated e-mails that go out to the webinar participants.
Clickfunnels can target various audiences amongst the webinar signups.
– As the name indicates, it targets all who register to the webinar.
- Missed out on webinar
– People who register, but didn’t see the webinar.

– Individuals who did see the offer but did not choose to purchase.
– People 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 offer but didn’t purchase 2 days after the webinar.
6) Setup items and up offers
Finally, you hardly need including a sales page and any you may desire in your funnel. It’s just as simple 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
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 want to see contrasts between Clickfunnels and other systems, let me know and I may include them).
Clickfunnels vs LeadPages
Allow me start by mentioning that I’ve been actually gratified with my LeadPages subscription. They have some awesome templates and a pretty stable system that simply works.
Their assistance is great; however they have a great deal of customers so not super fast.
Clickfunnels has an even better editor (in my opinion) than LeadPages and they have a very fast assistance. However that might be since they are a new service and they do not have that numerous clients.
However Clickfunnels actually surpass the whole page designer thing. While LeadPages likewise has design templates for webinars, they are simply that simply design templates. They look amazing, but do not include any special webinar functionality. You can register and view the webinar.
LeadPages does however have an incredible WordPress combination and you can even download the raw HTML and stick it on your own server if you wished to. They likewise have other functions like the LeadBoxes that develops 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, due to the fact that lately Lead Pages have had a very aggressive technique for getting you to either upgrade or extend your membership for 1-2 years. However once again, it’s simply good company to bind your consumers to your platform for a longer period, so possibly it’s just an coincidence.
The Clickfunnels variation 2.0 is a quite big re-write from the beta variation that I initial worked with (and wrote about). So a lot of the “beta bugs” have been settled. So they are really striving on getting the system ideal.
So right now, I’m considering canceling my LeadPages account.Optimizepress Video Player
Clickfunnels vs OptimizePress 2.x
I was never ever actually that keen on OptimizePress 2.x. I truly liked OptimizePress 1.x and just desired more and much better looking design templates in 2.x. Nevertheless they created a very sluggish drag and drop page contractor. Now it has probably improved, but there were a ton of bugs when they initially released it. I bought it, however have really never used it for anything besides tests.
Initially OptimizePress 2.x had one advantage over page home builders like LeadPages and Clickfunnels, and that was that it was possible to completely change the design template. That means adding brand-new products or getting rid of existing. However with version 2.x that is now likewise possible in Clickfunnels. And it works way better (not to state method faster) than the OptimizePress editor.
I think it’s a deliberate option from LeadPages (and initially likewise for Clickfunnels before they altered it), since it’s much easier to offer you some rocking templates that are already converting and getting them to convert for you to. So you cannot actually mess the design template up too much.
Nevertheless I still think that Clickfunnels has actually done the ideal thing by making the editor a lot more flexible, while still supplying some kick ass templates.
So there you have it, I’m truly thrilled about Clickfunnels.
