Take This Scenario Into Account…

Here’s the story of Kristina, a co-operator/owner of an up-and-coming digital marketing agency who uses ClickFunnels to optimize her business’ sales funnels.

Kristina loves ClickFunnels but had never, at any time, given any thought to building a large email list.

Once she realized the importance of having an email list and how they could build her agency’s sales, she had a sudden realization: her digital marketing firm was leaving money on the table.

Kristina quickly went about getting her email list together.

After she developed all of its different facets, she was confused as to how she and her agency had overlooked such a gratuitous aspect of digital marketing.

What steps can you take to experience success like Kristina’s?

ClickFunnels Landing Pages: The Growth Factor

the growth factor

These days, if you’re using digital marketing to push your product or service across the world wide web, your sales prospects without email marketing are like a mop in a bucket without water: quite dry.

That being said, you’re already using ClickFunnels since you’re reading this article. So, luckily, your mop is damp.

How do you get it to be soaking wet?

In the bigger picture, email lists are the answer, and within these email lists, landing pages are the x-factor.

(Warning: don’t try to get an actual mop wet by sticking it into a landing page; you might break your computer’s screen.)

How can you optimize your landing pages to best suit your current email list(s) by using ClickFunnels?

The process can be broken down into several, easy-to-perform tasks.

All you have to do, as a ClickFunnels user, is follow the steps!

 

  • Step 1: Plan your requirements and make considerations for your landing page based on the platform you’re using.

Simply put, don’t jump into email marketing and landing page creation without a plan.

Since you use and know ClickFunnels, you’ve probably already gathered that a lot of the work is done for you upfront, especially when it comes to building your funnels.

That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take influential factors into consideration when planning your landing page.

Consider factors such as your audience, your list size, and the platform the landing page is going to be a part of

If you’re directing email recipients to a ClickFunnels page, you don’t have to worry about platform requirements.

But a page like WordPress, on the other hand, might require special coding or plugins to properly direct ClickFunnels-based email traffic to the platform.

Takeaway: Don’t take action without careful consideration.

  • Step 2: Choose a rock star color and a winning landing page.

    rockstar color

Seriously, color counts; in fact, colors tend to lead the mind in a certain direction. Why’s this important?

Let’s say that Mike, a contact on your sports drink company’s email list, decides to click through to your landing page.

He arrives and sees the landing page, but notices the hue of red (a color that often triggers the mind to think of disgust, contempt, and other negative feelings).

He doesn’t feel well and leaves.

While all of your customer’s click-throughs might not be as easily influenced as Mike’s was, it’s not a guarantee that they’ll react similarly to one or several colors.

You’re best bet is to color your page with colors that have proven to boost conversion rates and are favored by males and females.

Color scheme isn’t the only thing to look out for, however. The template of your landing page is also quite important.

ClickFunnels has a brilliant marketplace for landing page templates!

landing page templates

You can choose whether you want the template to be utilized throughout your entire sales funnel, or just on your landing page.

 

  • Step 3: Develop your landing page content so that it’s aligned with your site’s ideas as well as the messages conveyed in the emails preceding it.

Whew, that was a mouthful.

To put it more simply, make sure your message is clear across all fronts. Whether it’s the content of your emails or your email’s subject line, the text needs to convey the same message as your landing page.

 

  • Step 4: Direct traffic to a specific landing page and not just to your website’s homepage from your emails.

This step is a no-brainer; why would you be building a unique landing page for your company in the first place?

Still, it always helps to check your ClickFunnels sales funnels and make sure that customers stay on the right path down your funnels.

That’s it?

Yes, that’s it–we told you it would be simple!

Getting an email list started for your digital agency is one thing but utilizing ClickFunnels to construct killer landing pages is another.

Better landing pages = better rates of customer conversion.

Better rates of customer conversion = more money for you and your team.

Simple and straightforward.

Using the above steps, you’ll be able to use ClickFunnels to grow your company.

As always, if you ever have any questions or ClickFunnels problems, don’t hesitate to contact the experts at FunnelFixIt.

He can often offer assistance for common issues… if you play by his rules, that is.

Stepping out of Mark’s way (momentarily), here’s what we have to say. “While ClickFunnels​ ​is​ ​focused​ ​on​ ​building​ ​their tool and active user base and on their own internal​ ​launches​ ​(with​ ​a​ ​big​ ​backlog​ ​of​ ​bug fixes​ ​like​ ​any​ ​SAAS​ ​business),​ it’s hard to see how ​Support​ ​could be on the top of​ ​their​ priority ​list​ ​-​ ​At Funnel Fix It, Support​ ​IS​ ​our​ ​list​ ​of​ ​to do’s​ ​for​ ​you​ ​:)

Mark from ClickFunnels

Wait, did you hear that? I think Mark is trying to say something.

That’s right – Mark says that it’s time to shift focus from him to a pressing issue that you could have regarding, well, him. (If you’ve listened to anything we’ve discussed relating to Mark, you’ll know what to do…)

 

Will Intercom Commandeer my Website? Mark Seems Like a Control Freak.

No, Mark won’t take over your website, unless you don’t follow his directions. That’s a complete joke; Mark says he will steer clear from any funnels or web pages you’ve setup.

 

In fact, he’ll appear as Mark to you but not to anyone else. He won’t exist as far as your customers are concerned; why would THEY want to fix issues they run into while they’re visiting YOUR web pages?

Let’s explain that another way:

“Don’t​ ​worry,​ ​your​ ​visitors​ ​to​ ​your​ ​funnels​ ​and​ ​web pages​ ​won’t​ ​be able​ ​to​ ​see​ ​Mark​ ​talking​ ​to​ ​them,​ ​only​ ​you​ ​see​ ​this​ ​as​ ​you​ ​are​ ​logged​ ​into your​ ​account.​ ​To​ ​fix​ ​it,​ ​just​ ​log​ ​in,​ ​and​ ​above​ ​the​ ​little​ ​blue​ ​Intercom​ ​icon​ ​in​ ​the bottom​ ​left​ ​of​ ​your​ ​screen,​ ​there​ ​is​ ​a​ ​“Clear​ ​All”​ ​link.​ ​Just​ ​hit​ ​that.​ ​Note:​ ​this link​ ​only​ ​appears​ ​if​ ​you​ ​have​ ​a​ ​little​ ​red​ ​dot​ ​on​ ​that​ ​icon​ ​letting​ ​you​ ​know​ ​that you​ ​have​ ​Alternatively,​ ​you​ ​can​ ​open​ ​the​ ​icon​ ​and​ ​click​ ​on​ ​each​ ​of​ ​the​ ​articles that​ ​are​ ​there. “

Lock and Unlock Clickfunnels Content With Password

Locked Password Order Form from Funnel Fix It

This will be a quick one, but it’s a pretty cool hack we made that plays on the “Coupon Code” functionality you might have seen before.

Picture this; You’re launching a new product or lead magnet to your tribe, but you want to turn the “coolness” level up to 11.

What about sending people to your Facebook page or even group, where they receive the super secret password that gives them access to unlock your new secret product.

They head to the locked page, enter the password and the second it’s correct, boom, the content is unlocked.

Cool huh?

Here’s what you need:

  1. An Element You Want To Hide (grab the CSS element from the # setting)
  2. Somewhere to put your password field (can be on an order form, or better yet, on a row above it so you can lock the actual order form)
  3. A Coupon Code you set that will be the PASSWORD

That’s it.

Once you add those to your Order Form or any other page, the hidden element won’t show until they put in the exact password you have set.

Simple.

Three Newbie ClickFunnels Mistakes Commonly Made With Sales Funnels

clickfunnels mistakes

We know…

We promised we’d talk about real-life funnel examples.

But, we have to talk about three mistakes that many of us make before/during the creation of your ClickFunnels sales funnels.

Who knows? These three mistakes (and fixes) might be just what you need to take away from this article!

After we’ve rocked your world with these quick fixes to the most common sales funnels mistakes, stay tuned.

You won’t want to miss the real-life, eye-popping, successful funnels! (ClickFunnels-based, of course)

Mistake #1: Putting More Effort Into Looks Than Content

While it may seem important to pump creative juices into the design of your site, make note of one important thing: Content trumps design.

Your funnel can have a killer design that attracts and inspires the many people that find their way to your site.

If you don’t have the valuable content to match, however, you won’t convert funnel-goers to sales.

Mistake #2: Cutting Corners to Save Money

One of the most important aspects of having a killer funnel is to ensure that anyone or anything you recruit to help your funnel thrive won’t come up short when you need them most.

It’s easy to get excited about a product or service that’s cheap, and can, supposedly, help your funnel.

save money

Don’t settle for anything less than quality, however. Thoroughly analyze their website, compare their services to other similar sites, and look for OUTSIDE reviews of the company or person.

Mistake #3: Split Testing With Anything BUT Warm Leads

If you take shots in the dark when you split test your email marketing campaigns (a potent part of any sales funnel), you’re also taking a shot at your business.

You want to test varying funnel patterns and designs on warm leads or people whose interests you’ve already piqued.

Now that we’ve covered our defensive end, so to speak, of fixing mistakes, let’s play a little offense.

Shying away from ClickFunnels, let’s take a look at some real-life sales funnels examples that have proven their worth in the vast online universe.

Three ClickFunnels Sales Funnel Examples

If you’re a member of the ClickFunnels site, you know that there are more than just three ways of building a strong sales funnel.

But, these three examples are some of the most prominent sales funnels that you, as a ClickFunnels user, can integrate into your own funnels for potential success.

Funnel #1: Lead Capture/Opt-in Funnel

lead page

This classic sales funnel is a method of email capturing.

A visitor to your site will be prompted to give you their email, which will allow you to then market your site’s products and services to them.

If your prospective visitor is prompted to follow the link from the email you’ve sent, then they’ll, of course, be directed to a landing page.

The landing page is a critical element of a Lead Capture/Opt-in Funnel and serves as a middleman (separate from your site) that solely serves to navigate visitors to the correct destination on your site.

This is the oldest trick in the book, yet, folks seem to often forget about the effectiveness of email lists when it comes to building their online business or website.

Here are some tips to successfully steer your Lead Capture/Opt-in Funnel in the right direction:

  • Only give your customers one choice: This means that you need to be clear with what you’re offering on the opt-in page.

Is it a free trial of your product?

Is it an e-book?

Your site’s visitors will appreciate the clarity, and so will your wallet.

  • Don’t ask for more information than necessary: In fact, it’s good to just stick with a visitor’s email.

Asking too much from a visitor might deter them from using your site altogether.

  • Include Visuals: This is particularly important when it comes to the design of your landing page; you’ll want eye-catching visuals that keep attention focused on the page.

Funnel #2: Webinar Funnel

webinar funnel

The Webinar Funnel gives visitors an opportunity to see and hear about you and your product face-to-face.

From here, you can promote whatever your business is selling which will, in turn, drive your business’s sales.

Here are some tips for a successful Webinar Funnel:

  • Don’t waste your time on dead leads: Webinar Funnels are for qualified leads or those who are distinctly in demand of your product or service.
  • Create exposure to your webinar through social media: And what better way to do it than through Facebook?

While qualified leads will jump at the opportunity to see your webinar, they might think twice before they go to your site to find the link to said webinar.

Use Facebook advertising to generate an audience response and raise your webinar’s awareness.

Funnel #3: Membership Site Funnel

registration page

A less known sales funnel, the membership site funnel is an excellent way to bring in a constant stream of revenue for your business.

You can find the template for this funnel in the Backpack feature of ClickFunnels.

The framework goes essentially like this:

  • Landing page, registration page, registered members area.

It’s simple and it’s a great source of revenue, particularly for businesses that already have an established stream of customers.

That’s All, Folks!

We hope you’ve learned about how ClickFunnels sales funnels are quite distinct.

We hope you’ve learned about mistakes you may have made (or that you’re currently making) when you started your ClickFunnels sales funnels processes.

Your business can, undoubtedly, be grown with the proper ClickFunnels sales funnels.

If you pay attention to the three prominent funnels we just mentioned, you can grow your business to previously unattainable heights.
