You’ve probably heard of ClickFunnels. If not, you may know what they are from their popular book Funnel Marketing or when you see them promoting their product on social media. Either way, you’ve probably wondered what it would be like to connect with a live person when you’re shopping for products or services online. Thanks to the magic of technology, you now have the chance to find out!
This article will teach you how to book a call with ClickFunnels, which you can do by following four simple steps.
Step one: Register for a free account.
Go to https://clickfunnels.com and register for a free account. Once you’ve been approved for a free account, you’ll see a thank you page with a big button that will bring you to your dashboard. Click on the button to continue.
You’ll see a dashboard with all the functions of your account. At the very least, you can log in and see your email address, which you can use to send marketing or sales related information to.
Step two: Set up a sales funnel.
Go to Your Sales Funnel and click on the blue “+” in the top right corner to set up your first sales funnel. You will then see a page with a big green button that will take you to your Funnel Management area. From there, you can configure the details of your funnel.
You can add as many steps as you’d like to your sales funnel. As a general best practice, start with a single email capture page followed by a landing page that converts website visitors into paying customers.
Step three: Create a website.
Go to Your Website and click on the blue “+” in the top right corner to create a new website. You can call this website whatever you’d like as long as you remember the domain name (www.example.com).
Once you’ve created your website, you can use the Subdomain tool in the top right to create a custom subdomain for your site. For example, if you have an anti-fraud tool that you think will be of interest to potential customers, you can create a subdomain for it (www.example.com/anti-fraud).
You can then use the CNAME tool (short for “Camel Case”) in the top right to point the subdomain at your existing website (www.example.com). This will enable anyone who goes to that subdomain to be automatically redirected to your website.
Step four: Link your website to your sales funnel.
Go to Your Sales Funnel and then click on the blue “Add a link” button in the top left to add a link to your website. You can then choose from three options:
- Direct – when someone clicks this link, they will be automatically taken to your website
- Instagram – your website will show up on your Instagram account when someone clicks on the link
- YouTube – your website will show up on your YouTube account when someone clicks on the link
If you have an existing website or social media channels, you can use these to promote your business. As a general best practice, try to use websites and social media to provide value to your audience. If you can relate to something that they are reading or viewing on a blog post or social media channel, you have the opportunity to provide value. This value could be in the form of free resources that they can use to grow their business (e.g., a free marketing template or checklist), or education about an emerging industry trend, etc.
Once you’ve set up sales funnels for yourself, you can assign them to specific contacts or contacts you’ve followed or contacted on social media.
To see your completed sales funnel, click on My Sales Funnel in the Menu bar at the top of the page. You’ll then be presented with a summary of all your funnels including the number of emails collected, the average number of clicks per day, and the conversion rate (the percent of people who have converted into paying customers). All of this information can be valuable in understanding the success of your funnel.
