If you’re looking for an easy way to create beautiful sales pages and funnels that grow your business, then you’ve come to the right place. In this article, we’ll introduce you to a new tool called OnTraport and how you can use it to create stunning landing pages and funnels.
OnTraport is a software tool designed to make it easy for anyone to create an online store. They were born out of the Needle platform, which is also what powers Amazon Mechanical Turk. You might be familiar with AMT because it’s the place where you can get small tasks done for companies (like Flywheel and OnTraport).
What sets OnTraport apart from other similar tools is that it was built from the ground up to integrate with external applications and provide real-time data on traffic and conversions. Let’s dive into the product a little bit deeper.
Why Should You Try OnTraport?
There are a host of reasons why you might want to try OnTraport, but here are the big ones.
- Brand awareness
- Product discovery
- Customer retention
- Lead generation
- Triggered emails
- Viral marketing
- A/B testing (you can split test different landing pages)
- Inbound marketing
- Google Analytics
- Reporting & Analysis
- Marketing automation
How Do I Use OnTraport?
As you saw in the previous section, OnTraport can do a lot of things for you, but to get started you’ll need to do three things.
First, you’ll need to log in to your Twitter account. Then, click the blue button to go to your profile, and then click on the gear button (it looks like a gear with a circle around it).
Finally, you’ll need to click on the “Settings” button (it looks like a gear with an arrow through it) to open up the settings page. From here you can select the plan that’s right for you.
Once you’ve done that, you’ll be taken to the dashboard where you can see all of your settings and make changes as needed (you don’t need to live in the dashboard to make changes, so don’t worry about losing access).
Why should you use OnTraport? Because it takes the drudgery out of setting up an online store. You shouldn’t need to worry about choosing a theme, adding products, or checking inventory. Everything should just work.
An Overview Of The Product
If you’re ever heard of Shopify, you might know that they create easy-to-use, drag-and-drop shopping websites. On the surface, they look like any other website builder, but the way they work is very different.
With Shopify, whenever you create a new product or page, you have the option of choosing a pre-made theme or creating your own unique design. When you choose the former, everything from the fonts to the colors are already curated for you so you don’t have to worry about matching them perfectly. If you go this route, you’ll still need to know how to use Shopify’s functions to your advantage, but you won’t have to worry about designing the site from scratch.
On the flip side, if you want to design your site from scratch and use a unique theme, you can do that with WordPress too. However, if you choose this route you’ll need to become an expert in WordPress’ coding language, which can be a challenge for those who aren’t technology-savvy. Furthermore, you have to keep up with WordPress’ ever-changing default themes as they are updated constantly to stay relevant.
WordPress has a product called bbPress that you can use to create an online store. It’s completely free and provides users with all of the functionality you need to get started (minus the ability to upload products). One of its biggest selling points is that it’s extremely customizable. If you’re looking for a way to create a professional-looking online store without having to worry about WordPress’ code language or constantly updating custom themes, then bbPress is the tool for you.
What About Shopify’s Advantage?
Shopify has a very powerful advantage over WordPress and bbPress when it comes to creating an online store. Not only can they provide you with everything you need to get started (including templates), but they also give you access to a thriving online community of shop owners who can help you get the most out of your store. They’ve also got a team of experienced developers who are available to help you tackle any coding problems you might encounter.
While all of these tools have their perks, no tool is perfect for everyone. If you’re looking for a free option then Shopify is your best bet because they’re extremely easy to use and they provide you with everything you need to get started.
