Have you ever considered designing a funnel, but didn’t know where to start? There’s a whole host of steps involved in designing a successful funnel, and the good news is, you can start from scratch with the Clickfunnels Funnel Designer.

How Do I Get The Most From The Clickfunnels Funnel Designer?

When you get started with the Clickfunnels Funnel Designer, you’ll notice that there are a lot of steps. The good news is, you can work your way through them one by one, and at the end you’ll have a fully functioning funnel that you can take pride in.

Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you along the way:

Step 1: Select The Type Of funnel You’ll Be Building

The Clickfunnels Funnel Designer has six pre-made funnel templates to choose from. Each template is themed around an industry standard, and as a beginner, it’s recommended to start with the Freelancer or Consultant standard. You can easily switch between the different templates by navigating to Settings then selecting the template you’d like to use from the list. Don’t worry, you can also create a new funnel from scratch if you’re not fond of any of the pre-made templates.

The benefit of starting with the pre-made templates is that you can get a good idea of how each template looks, and the process of creating a funnel using one of the pre-made templates is very similar. You’ll just need to fill in the blanks to fit your business.

So, if you’re looking to create a lead generation funnel, you can use the Consultant or Freelancer template, for example.

Step 2: Pick A Name For Your Funnel.

Even if you’re creating a lead generation funnel, you’ll still need to give it a name. When you’re ready to begin building your funnel, you can navigate to Dashboard then pick a name for your funnel from the list. You can use your company name or the name of a product or service you’re marketing. Once you’ve picked a name, you can begin working on your funnel.

You can put a description of the funnel you’re creating in the Dashboard as well. This will help your fellow entrepreneurs, marketers, and developers understand the purpose of your funnel.

Step 3: Select Up To Three Main Goals/Purposes For Your Funnel

Your funnel is not a one-stop shop for leads. It doesn’t generate sales by itself, but it acts as a conduit for converting leads into customers. For this reason, it’s vital to break down your main goals/purposes for which you’re building the funnel.

The Clickfunnels Funnel Designer will immediately highlight these goals/purposes when you start building the funnel. You can add more goals and purposes as needed. Make sure that you select three main goals, otherwise your funnel won’t be fully functioning. You can put the most prominent one as the Primary objective and the other two as Secondary objectives. When you’ve finished selecting your goals, you can move on to the next step.

Step 4: Fill In The Blanks For Your Funnel

Now that you’ve picked a name for your funnel and selected your goals, it’s time to fill in the blanks. The good news is, you can do this using the built-in spreadsheet. Simply click Create New Sheet in the Sheet tab, then click Next to get started.

Start by entering a unique Sheet name in the top row, followed by the Actions (leads generation, conversion, and follow-up) and Metrics (for lead conversion). Next, you’ll want to add columns for Objective, Description, and Timing. You can add more tabs as needed to keep track of different aspects of your funnel. For example, you can have one sheet for web traffic, another for click-through rates, and a third for conversion rates.

When you’ve entered all the data you need into the first tab, you can edit the information in other tabs by clicking on them. Since each template uses a built-in spreadsheet, all of your data will be saved and you won’t have to enter it manually. You can also export your data from the different tabs, so if you ever want to change something about the funnel, you can find the original spreadsheet and make your changes.

Step 5: Choose Themes For Your Funnel

Do you want your funnel to match the overall theme of your website or blog? It’s a good idea to pick a theme for your funnel. The Clickfunnels templates are themed around the WordPress dashboard, so if you use that as your CMS, then you’re good to go. You can choose from three different colors for the overall theme of your funnel, and it’s also possible to add a bit more flair by choosing a pattern or texture for the background of your sheet.

For the purposes of this tutorial, we’ll use the Freelancer template, but you can use any of the six templates. Once you’ve picked a color scheme, the next step is to add header images and widgets to match the theme.

Step 6: Design The Dashboard For Your Funnel

The final step in the process of designing a funnel is to put the finishing touches on the dashboard. Simply navigate to Settings then select the Theme you’ve chosen for your funnel, followed by Font, Colors, and Layout. You can add a bit more space around the edges of the sheet by selecting the Full-width option in the Layout drop-down menu.

To create lead gen funnels, you’ll often want to use the WordPress dashboard as your CMS. If you’ve picked one color scheme and chosen a background pattern for the sheet, then you can add a logo and some links to take visitors to other pages on your site. When you’re done, it’s time to test your funnel!

Once you’ve entered a few leads and tested the conversion rate, you can either continue adding more leads, or make changes to the funnel to increase conversion.

Designing a funnel is a straightforward process, but it’s important to follow the right steps to ensure that you create a working lead gen funnel. If you’re looking for a simple way to generate quality leads for your business, then the Clickfunnels Funnel Designer is a tool you should consider.
