Using ClickFunnels to Add a Discount Form to Your Site
Getting a discount is always a great way to attract potential customers to your business. However, offering discounts can be complicated. When a customer contacts your business, they want to feel like they’re dealing with a human being and not a computer. To make sure this happens, you need to follow a few simple steps.
Step one: Identify the goal of the discount form
The first step is to identify the goal of the discount form. What do you want the form to do? Are you looking to gather information? Are you looking to make a purchase? Once you know the purpose of the form, you can choose which page to appear on when the customer hits the “submit” button. If you have multiple goals for the form, you can create multiple landing pages.
Step two: Decide how the customer will enter the discount code
Choose how the customer will enter the discount code. Will they know it directly, or will you send them an email with a promotional code? There are pros and cons to both approaches. Having the code directly in the form means they can enter it easily. However, if you choose to send them the code via email, you prevent them from having to remember it.
Step three: Design the discount form
Now that you have a purpose and a way of getting the code into the hands of the customer, you can move on to designing the form itself. Start by making a copy of your homepage and giving it a new name (e.g. MyAccount). On this page, you’re going to add a form that uses the popular subscription box company, Sweet Genius. The reason why we’re using Sweet Genius is because their templates are extremely easy to use and they have a very good library of free icons you can use.
To add the form, go to your MyAccount page and click on the “+” sign at the top right. Then, click on “Page Elements.” A new window will pop up with all of the elements you can use on your page.
Find the “Single Donation” widget and drag it to the top of the page. Next, scroll down and find the “Contact Form 7” widget. Drag this next to the Single Donation form.
Once both of these boxes have been dragged to the top of the page, you can resize them to fit snugly next to each other. Then, click on the black fill of the second box (in the middle) to lock its width and tap on the white area next to it to create a horizontal space between the two forms.
This should look something like this:
As you can see, we have a form that looks like a sales letter. When a customer clicks on this form, they will be taken to a discount/shopping cart page where they can sign up for a free trial of Sweet Genius (or whatever other service you want to offer). You can also choose to have the form take them to a thank you/landing page or straight to a shopping cart.
Step four: Customize the form’s appearance
Use appropriate fonts
Make sure you use fonts that are appropriate for a business. For example, if you use the Comic Sans font, you might want to switch to a different font (e.g. Arial, Gotham, or Open Sans).
Use bright contrasting colors
Use bright contrasting colors to make the text more visible. It can be helpful to use a dark background with a light colored font for contrast. You can also try using a white background with a black font or vice versa.
Keep the design simple
Keep the design as simple as possible. If you choose a complex design, it can be difficult for the customer to navigate it easily. Break down the complicated design into smaller parts and make sure the parts are easy to understand. Think about how you would explain it to someone who doesn’t know anything about design (e.g. a complete stranger). You should aim to make it easy for them to find what they’re looking for and not have to worry about any problems.
Make sure everything is relevant to the purpose
Everything on your page needs to be relevant to the purpose of the page. If you have a page that asks for a customer’s address, make sure the address is a valid one and that it fits the purpose of the page (e.g. do you want to ship that item to the customer?). In cases like this, it’s helpful to add a little bit more information about the product so the customer has a better idea of what it is they’re purchasing.
Step five: Testing the form
Once you have the form looking the way you want it, it’s time to test it. There are several ways to do this, but we’ll go with the most basic one:
Go to your MyAccount page and click on the “Save Changes” button at the top right. Now, when we go back to our homepage, we should see a little “+” sign next to the word “Signup” in the top right corner.
This is where things get a bit tricky. The first thing you need to do is click on the “+” sign and choose “Signup” from the drop-down menu. The next step is to fill out the form with your email address and click on the “Submit” button. A confirmation screen will pop up asking you to confirm your email address. Once you do this, you’ll see the “Thank You” page you designed earlier.
