You’ve probably already heard of ClickFunnels – they are one of the most popular (and free!) email marketing platforms available. What is ClickFunnels? It is a tool that can help you build landing pages, capture emails, and even grow your business via affiliate marketing.
This tutorial will teach you how to add an unsubscribe link to your emails sent via ClickFunnels. The more you know, the sooner you can start enjoying the benefits of using this tool to grow your business.
Before we get started, it is important to understand a few very important things about the platform. First, you will need to have a working knowledge of HTML to be able to use this platform. Don’t worry – it’s not difficult! Second, you need to have a computer or phone with Internet access in order to use this tool. Finally, you need to have a Gmail account to be able to use this tool. You can create a free Gmail account here. Don’t worry – we will not be sending you advertisements via email or anything like that. These are just a few of the things you need to know before you start using this tool.
There are several ways to get started with ClickFunnels. You can easily sign up with your email address, Facebook account, or even your Reddit account. When signing up, you will be redirected to a dashboard where you can get a peek at how the tool works.
The advantage of using these social media platforms to sign up is that you can easily get access to a massive amount of potential customers. Just remember that with any online community, you must be careful to not post anything illegal or inappropriate. Otherwise, you may find yourself penalized or even banned from using that platform.
What Will You Need To Get Started?
Now that you’re signed up, you will need to get started by creating a new folder in your Google Drive titled “Web content”. This folder will contain all of the documents and templates you need to get started with your website.
Inside of this folder, you will want to create a plain text document titled “email.txt”. This is where you will write your email campaign and update your contact details. You can also add other texts for specific purposes. For example, you may want to add a “blog” text file for your blog posts.
Once you’re in the ‘HTML Editing’ window, you will see a big button that says “Template”. Click this button and a new window will pop up where you can choose from a library of pre-designed HTML templates. We want to use one of these templates to create the unsubscribe link.
After clicking on the email template you want, click on “Insert” to insert the code.
The code that you insert into your HTML will look like this:
<a href=\”mailto:meiltous\”> <font color=glutous> Unsubscribe</font> </p>
<a href=\”mailto:meiltous\”> <font color=glutous> Contact Us</font> </p>
The above code will create an unsubscribe link and a contact link in your email. Just remember that you can only put one of these links in each email you send out. When a user clicks on the unsubscribe link, they will be taken to a page that looks like this.
You have successfully created an unsubscribe link and contact form inside of your email. Next, you will need to configure the settings for these links so when a user clicks on them, they will be taken to the correct pages. For the contact form, you will need to provide an email address so users can contact you directly if they have questions or concerns about your business.
If this was all there were to it, you would be able to start using ClickFunnels effectively and efficiently to grow your business. Unfortunately, this is not the case. There are several important things you need to do after you’ve added these links.
First Things First
The first thing you need to do is make sure that your email account is set up correctly in Gmail. You can do this by clicking on the little gear icon in the upper right corner of your Gmail dashboard. Then choose “Settings” from the dropdown menu. In the settings window that pops up, you will want to change the “Account Type” from “Gmail” to “Google Apps”. If you’re using a Gmail account to send out these emails, you need to make sure that it is setup as a Google Apps account. You can find detailed instructions on how to do this here. Once you’ve done this, try sending out a few emails to make sure that everything functions correctly. You can always go back and change the settings should you need to.
What About The Name Of Your Folder?
Inside of your Google Drive, you will also want to create a new folder named “Branding”. This folder will contain images and documents related to your website’s branding. For example, if you are redesigning your blog or establishing your new website from the ground up, you will want to create a branded folder to keep all of your logo designs, color combinations, and other important information related to the design of your blog or website.
Inside of this folder, you will want to create a JPEG image file named “icon-256.jpg”. This icon will be the graphic that represents your website. When a user browses the web, they will see this icon and immediately know exactly what website they are looking at. This is a very important part of designing a good user experience on your site.
Adding An Unsubscribe Link To ClickFunnels Emails
Adding an unsubscribe link to your email is very easy to do with ClickFunnels. Just remember that you can only do this for a free account. To add an unsubscribe link, open the member area of your dashboard and click on “email marketing” in the left menu. From here you will see the different “email campaigns” that you can set up. The one that we want to focus on is “basic email”. On this page, you will see a big button that says “Insert Unsubscribe”. Click on this button and a modal window will pop up where you can add an unsubscribe link.
To make things easier, you can copy and paste the above code into the “Unsubscribe” box. Then, in the box below that, you will want to add your website’s URL so when people click on it, they will be taken to your unsubscribe page. Feel free to add other texts for more information about your site as well.
After you’ve added these details, click on “Save changes” at the top right corner of the modal window to save the settings you just made. When you’re sure that everything is correct, click on “Send verification email” to send out the email with the verification link.
