The Basics

If you’ve been following the blog posts online, you’ll know that we cover the basics of getting a ClickFunnels account and using it to create a funnels for your various marketing efforts. In this article, we will cover what you need to do in order to integrate the collection of emails from ClickFunnels into your own website.

Essentially, all you need to do is add a few more fields to the sign-up form within your WordPress Dashboard. This will enable you to collect emails more easily, and you can start using the tool to gain valuable insights from potential customers.

Step 1: Create An Account At ClickFunnels

The first step is to create an account at ClickFunnels.com. If you already have a personal account with them or if you’ve been using their services for webinars, you can use the same email address to log-in.

Simply click on the button that says, “Create an account” or “Login” and you’ll be taken to the dashboard. From here, you can add additional services to your account, such as Amazon Alexa, or create and manage a funnels for collecting emails.

Step 2: Login To Your Dashboard

Once you’ve logged-in to your dashboard, you’ll see a box at the top of the page with your username and a link to your website. If you’re interested in adding email collection to your website, you can click on this link to get started.

On the left side of your dashboard, you’ll see the various tabs that you can click on to get more information about the service or to create a new funnel.

Step 3: Adding The Form Fields To Your Website

Adding The Form Fields To Your Website

Once you’re on the landing page, you can start adding the form fields to your website with the click of a button. First, you’ll want to enter your website’s URL and then paste the shortcode (also known as the “generator”] into the textbox.

The next step is to choose the type of form field you’d like to add a text box, checkbox, or radio button to your website. For the purpose of this tutorial, we will add a simple text box with the placeholder, “Your email address”. After you’ve done this, click on the blue button that says, “Copy Shortcode”. This will paste the shortcode you just entered into the box on the left side of your screen.

Next, you’ll want to go back to the landing page and click on the box you just added. You can edit the text inside the box with the click of a button. Then, you can click on the blue button that says, “Save Changes”.

Now, you can go back to your dashboard and, under “Behavior”, click on “Fuelling Retention”. This will bring you to a page that has three options: “No Fuelling”, “Fuelling Retention through Opt-ins”, and “Fuelling Retention through Subscriptions”. Select the radio button next to the option that suits your needs.

The first option, “No Fuelling”, means you don’t want users to opt-in to receive email notifications from your website. In order to enable email collection, click on the button that says, “Set Email Opt-in”. You’ll then be brought to a screen where you can enter your email address.

The second option, “Fuelling Retention through Opt-ins”, means you want users to opt-in to receive email notifications from your website in order to keep them engaged and to gain more subscribers.

The last option, “Fuelling Retention through Subscriptions”, means you want users to subscribe to a mailing list in order to receive email notifications from your website.

Step 4: Setting Up Email Notifications

Once you’ve collected the email addresses of interested parties, you can create email notifications for later use. On the left side of your dashboard, click on the button that says, “Schedule Email Notifications” and choose the frequency and time you’d like to be notified. Then, click on the button that says, “Create Email Notifications”.

This will bring you to a page where you can fill out the subject and email body of the email (more on these later). Once you’ve done this, you can click on the blue button that says, “Create Email Notifications”.

Step 5: Testing Your Form

Finally, you can test your newly-created form to make sure it’s functioning correctly. From your dashboard, click on the button that says, “Test Form”.

This will bring you to a separate page where you can enter some dummy data into the form fields. Once you’ve done this, you can click on the blue button that says, “Preview Form”.

This will display a preview of the form, with any errors or omissions highlighted in red. You can then click on the pencil icon next to each error or omission in order to correct it. Once you’ve made all the necessary changes, click on the blue button that says, “Save Changes”.

Once you’ve tested and approved the form, you can click on the blue button that says, “Create Form” in order to add it to your website.
