This post will teach you how to use the ClickFunnels Product Counter to grow your email list and make sales. We’ll cover the basics of what the Product Counter is and how it works so you can start using it right away.
What is the Product Counter?
The Product Counter is a feature within ClickFunnels that allows you to keep track of how many products your visitors have purchased after leaving your website. When a customer makes a purchase after viewing your online store, you’ll see a pop-up notification appear on the far right-hand side of their browser.
Some businesses worry that this little pop-up may turn off potential customers. However, you can use the Product Counter in two ways:
1. To see how many people are visiting your website
When someone visits your site, they may not immediately make a purchase. Instead, they may come back at a later date or make a purchase after seeing something on your site that piques their interest. In these cases, you can use the Product Counter to keep track of them.
You may be thinking that because these people haven’t made a purchase that they’re not interested in your product or service. But, as we’ve established, this may not be the case. They may simply have overlooked the Product Counter or thought it was a fake pop-up. Seeing how many people are visiting your site without making a purchase can be a good indication of whether or not you should continue to pursue them.
2. To see which products your customers are purchasing
Depending on your industry, your customers may find it difficult to locate the products they need without leaving your site. In these instances, the Product Counter can be a helpful tool to determine the products that are driving sales.
For example, let’s say you’re an online store for dog clothing and accessories. You notice that a significant portion of your sales come from customers in the UK. You want to find out what’s driving these sales so you can target your marketing efforts towards that area.
Instead of manually looking up a UK phone number and calling to get the shipping rate, you can use the Product Counter to get these kinds of details without leaving the comfort of your website. In addition, you can see a map with the locations of these shoppers.
How does the Product Counter work?
When a customer makes a purchase after viewing your website, you’ll see a notification appear in the upper right-hand corner of their browser.
This notification will contain the product title and SKU along with the quantity selected. There’s also a tab at the top that allows you to track the order from there. You can keep track of all the orders placed from this point onwards.
In instances where your customers find it difficult to navigate your site due to technical glitches or poor UI, you can use the Product Counter to assist them. When they see a product that interests them, they can click on the link to find out more about it. If a customer is considering making a purchase but doesn’t want to leave your site due to usability concerns, the Product Counter can assist them by presenting the same information in a more user-friendly format.
How can I get started using the Product Counter?
To get started using the Product Counter, simply click on the wrench icon at the top right-hand corner of your browser.
A window will open up, allowing you to create an account or log in to your existing account. If you have an account, you can simply login and begin using the Product Counter.
If you don’t have an account yet, click on the plus sign in the top right-hand corner to create one. You’ll then be directed to a web page allowing you to choose a username and password.
Once you’ve created your account, you can begin using the Product Counter to keep track of your sales.
