Are you looking for a way to make your blog posts, website content, or email newsletter stand out?
You can use a tool called ClickFunnels to easily create a powerful sales funnel that will convert curious visitors into paying customers.
In this blog post, you’ll discover how to add some extra spacing between two adjacent columns in the basic version of the software. This will help you to create a more professional-looking site or online store. You’ll learn about:
The Different Types of Columns
Columns are a web designer’s best friend. They can be used to organize content, display images, or simulate a bookshelf.
Here’s an example of two adjacent columns:
At the top, you’ll see a blue column called #1. Beneath it, you’ll see a green column called #2.
The purpose of this example is to space them out so that the reader can comfortably read the content without feeling cramped.
You have three types of columns in ClickFunnels: text, image, and video.
The Text Column
By default, text columns are set pretty close together. You can configure the spacing between them in the customizer. However, you can only play with the space between two text columns.
To see how this works, visit the Text section of the Basic template in ClickFunnels and click the Configure button. Then, choose the two columns you want to play with and hit Save.
You’ll see how much more space there is between the two columns than in the default state. The benefit of this is that it allows more room for the content you’re trying to display.
The Image Column
Image columns are used to display images, illustrations, or icons. To add some space between them, visit the Image section of the Basic template in ClickFunnels and click the Configure button. Then, choose the two columns you want to play with and hit Save.
This time, instead of seeing more text, you’ll see two sets of icons. One set is for media players and the other set is for cameras. When selecting image columns, you must specify whether you want them to appear on the left or the right side of the column.
By default, they’ll appear on the right. If you want to arrange them so that they appear on the left, visit the Layout section of the Customizer and click on the three lines next to Sidebar.
After clicking on the three lines, a menu will appear with the option to flip the sidebar to the left or the right. Hit the red button on the right to flip it to the left (toward the media players icon). Then, hit the Save button to save your changes and continue on to the next step.
The Video Column
Video columns are used to display videos, whether they’re animated or not, within a column. To add some space between them, visit the Video section of the Basic template in ClickFunnels and click the Configure button. Then, choose the two columns you want to play with and hit Save.
Videos can also be placed on a slider so that the viewer can scroll through them easily.
You’ll see two sets of squares here. One set is for photos and the other set is for videos. To add some space between them, visit the Layout section of the Customizer and click on the little black square to the right of the two columns you’ll be using. Then, hit the blue button to expand the area between the two columns.
This button will make the video player, which is used to display videos, occupy the entire width of the column. Similarly, the photos will be displayed on a slider occupying the entire width of the column.
Now that you have space between the two columns, you can add more content or an image slider as desired.
How To Add Some Space Between Two Basic Columns In Your Website
While the basic version of ClickFunnels comes with two columns, you can use the customizer to add space between them.
Visit the Design section of the basic template with your cursor over the top of the two columns to display the 3 dots in the top right corner. Then, click on the 3 dots and you’ll see the option to Add Another Column. Hit the blue button on the right to add another column on the right side of the existing two columns.
This new column will appear to the right of the existing two columns. You can now play with the space between the two columns by changing the padding or margins as desired. To remove the space and make the columns appear closer together, simply hit the red button on the right once more.
ClickFunnels Vs. WordPress
Although the basic version of ClickFunnels is a simpler option for web designers, it doesn’t mean that it’s merely a website builder. It’s actually a complete all-in-one marketing platform that allows you to build a completely customized website without having to know code.
WordPress is a popular content management system (CMS) that’s widely used by designers and bloggers. Typically, WordPress is thought of as a content publishing platform where designers can easily create a beautiful website with various blog posts and pages. However, it’s a bit more complex than that.
If you’re not familiar with code, WordPress can seem like a scary option because there are so many moving parts and it can be difficult to customize without knowing how to program. Fortunately, this is no longer the case because there are many free tools like WordPress Studio that help make setting up a WordPress site simpler.
WordPress is also a completely open-source platform so if you’re interested in this direction, you can download the entire source code of WordPress and examine it at your leisure. This gives you the ability to learn how things work under the hood and make changes as you see fit. The only downside to open-source is that it can be difficult to upgrade software once you’ve customized it a lot. In the case of WordPress, this can be really challenging because each new major version (e.g., 5.0, 5.2, etc.) brings with it many backwards-incompatible changes. This can make things pretty complicated if you ever decide to upgrade. Fortunately, there are solutions to this problem such as WordPress Tricky which allows you to run multiple versions of WordPress side-by-side.
Whether you’re a blogger looking for a way to display your content in a new and creative way or you’re an entrepreneur who needs a simple and effective way to organize your company’s website, you can use the power of ClickFunnels to create a proper sales funnel that will eventually lead to a purchase.
