You’re probably familiar with the term ‘digital nomad’, which describes people who work remotely as independent contractors, freelancers, or consultants. If you’re interested in this way of life, you might wonder how to go about it. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to grow your business remotely, and still be able to travel and see the world? You might think so. But to make this possible, you’ll need to create a business that is capable of handling all your virtual clients—and that’s a lot of work!
Fortunately, there are various ways in which you can create a business model that is suitable for a digital nomad. One of the most effective (and free) tools for this purpose is ClickFunnels.
Here’s an overview of why ClickFunnels is so valuable for digital nomads, and how you can put it to work for you.
There are numerous reasons why funnel builders like ClickFunnels prove to be so invaluable for companies, consultants, and digital nomads. Below, we’ll list seven reasons why this tool is a must-have for your toolkit.
01. Easy To Use
One of the main reasons why people decide to use ClickFunnels is because of how easy it is to get started with this tool. The setup process is quite simple, and if you’ve ever used another funnel builder, you’ll find that CF is much easier to use because of its modern design and intuitive UI.
Even if you’re a seasoned business owner or executive, you’ll still have the ability to use this tool without any trouble at all. From the very first click, you’ll be able to see how easy it is to get your own online sales funnel.
02. Funnel Domains
One of the unique things about ClickFunnels is that it allows you to create funnel domains. Essentially, a funnel domain is a subdomain of your main website that is dedicated to displaying funnel content. With a traditional sales funnel, users would have to be directed to your main website in order to view content associated with your product or service.
The great thing about funnel domains is that they allow you to have multiple sales funnels (up to 99) within the same domain. So, if you have a main website about sports equipment, you could create a separate sales funnel for baseball equipment. You’ll then be able to direct users to this specific funnel, as opposed to the main website traffic, which could be directed to a football channel or another baseball channel.
03. Actionetics & MailChimp
Actionetics is an email marketing automation tool, which integrates tightly with MailChimp. MailChimp is another marketing tool that you might be familiar with. What makes these two tools special is that they integrate so well with each other. In other words, you can use Actionetics and MailChimp together to manage all your email marketing.
As a digital nomad who wants to grow his business remotely, you’ll no doubt be contacting clients and prospects via email. Having an automated email sequence that handles all the marketing for you, in the form of drip campaigns, is highly valuable. For instance, you could use email marketing to promote an event, such as a webinar or a podcast episode—and you could use Actionetics to build and send out that email campaign.
04. Sales Funnels, Landing Pages, & Surveys
There are dozens of ways in which you can use ClickFunnels to engage with potential customers. You don’t need to limit yourself to just one method of acquiring new business—you can use multiple channels, including online contests, click-to-call buttons, and more.
One of the best things about ClickFunnels is how all the different components fit together to form a complete marketing machine. When you create a sales funnel, you’re able to choose from a variety of landing pages (each with their own unique look and feel). You can also choose to have the landing page collect information from the visitor, or you can have it act as a simple information gathering tool.
05. Membership Sites & Affiliate Programs
The great thing about ClickFunnels is that it allows you to create a membership site. A membership site is a type of website that allows you to either sell a product or service to members, or allow members to join a community and access a range of resources.
An important thing to consider when creating a membership site is the payment option that you’ll use. Fortunately, there are numerous options available, including PayPal, Stripe, and many more.
If you decide to create a membership site where members have to pay to access the content, you’ll want to seriously think about the payment processing option that you’ll use. Ensure that you work with a company that has a good reputation, and that you’re confident will be able to handle your payments securely.
06. A/B Testing & Split Testing
One of the unique things about ClickFunnels is that it allows you to do A/B testing, and also allows you to do split testing. A/B testing is the practice of comparing the performance of two different versions of the same content or product. For example, you may want to compare the conversion rate of a solid colored button versus a colorful one.
With split testing, you’re given two options, and you have to choose which one performs better. In the case of colored buttons, you could run an A/B test to compare the conversion rates of a green button to that of a red one.
The great thing about A/B testing and split testing is that you can do it with any of the content or products that you might create with ClickFunnels. You’re not limited to just doing comparisons within a single campaign—you can literally run an entire split testing experiment, with multiple variations of a product, service, or a call-to-action button!
07. Segmentation & Targeted Emails
Last but not least, let’s discuss one of the most valuable things about ClickFunnels—its segmentation and targeted email capabilities. With these features, you’re able to build a list of email subscribers, who you then send targeted emails to—depending on their interests, geographic locations, and more!
If you decide to use email marketing to grow your business, you’ll want to work with a tool that allows you to do targeted emails. With a traditional email marketing provider, you can only send your emails to people who have signed up for your list. But with ClickFunnels, you’re able to do much more. You can choose to target people based on interest, or you can choose to target people based on location. You can also send targeted emails to people who have signed up for your list, but who have not opened the email from you yet.
The bottom line is that email marketing is still one of the most effective forms of marketing that exists. Having a tool like ClickFunnels that allows you to target your email messages, and segment your list, means that you can continue to send out emails, and grow your business, without risking wasted emails.
To recap, for a digital nomad who wants to grow his business remotely, we’ve gone over seven ways in which ClickFunnels can be a valuable tool. We hope this overview has helped you see how this tool can enhance your digital nomad journey.
