If you’re reading this, I assume you’re either interested in trying out Clickfunnels or are already a user and wondering how to get the most out of your account. (If you’re already a user, be sure to check out my blog’s review of the platform!)

While many vendors will try to get you to pay for their services (and there are some pretty slick sales tactics), the beautiful thing about Clickfunnels and similar platforms is that they don’t want to sell you a product you don’t need. Instead, they recognize that some things are worth trying out for free before committing to a purchase.

This blog post will teach you how to get the most out of your free trial so you can get inspired to make the right choice for your business.

The Value Of A Free Trial

Let’s be honest, we’re all human and we all make mistakes. So sometimes we get interested in a product or service and before we know it, we’ve bought something we didn’t need. However, this is usually because we’re not aware of the value that some products or services provide us. (For example, I was very hesitant to join Patreon because I didn’t want to give them my email address but then I found out that they send special offers and discounts to people who join.)

A free trial is like a small taste of what a product or service can offer. This is especially valuable to people who are unsure of whether or not a product is right for their business. After you try out the product or service during your trial period, you can make a more informed decision about whether or not you want to continue using it.

Make A List Of All The Benefits You Can Think Of

As we mentioned above, a free trial is like a small piece of the pie for a product or service. So it’s important to make a list of all the benefits you can think of. (Think of all the things that make it worth your time and effort to use this product or service.)

When someone comes up with a product or service that can potentially improve your life, you should definitely try it out. However, you have to make sure that you’re not being fooled by slick sales tactics or overly optimistic claims. (For example, if the product claims it will help you lose weight but then when you try it out it makes you lose appetite and quickly ends up being the cause of your gaining weight, you’re gonna be pretty upset.)

It is always best to look for tangible evidence or a clear demonstration of how a product or service can benefit your life or business. (In the above example, you would want to see some serious weight loss results or at least some evidence that their product helped you to lose weight.)

Join The Conversation

The best way to get the most out of a product or service is by talking to other people who are using it. (This is often how companies like Google and Facebook make billions of dollars. They constantly update their products and services to make them better and to encourage more people to use them.)

You can find lots of helpful information online but nothing can replace talking to someone who is already using the product or service you are interested in.

By participating in online conversations or forums, you can get valuable feedback about whether or not the product or service you are considering is right for your business. You can also engage with other users and get inspired by what they have to say. This is also a great place to find help if you’re struggling with a certain aspect of your business (For example, if you’re looking for marketing help, you can find the right person to talk to who is also a current/past user of the platform).

How To Get The Most Out Of Your Free Trial

Once you’ve tried out a product or service, it’s time to make the most out of your free trial. (Did you like what you tried out? Do you have a burning desire to own it? Do you want to find out more about the product or service?)

To do this, you need to follow a few simple steps. These include taking advantage of the free trial, integrating the product or service into your life and using it to its full potential. (For example, if you use Pinterest to find inspiration for your blog. After you’ve tried it out, you’ll realize how much you love using the platform and how much it helps you to find new ideas and engage with other bloggers. You can then incorporate this into your blog and use it to its full potential.)

It’s important not to be too greedy. You want to make sure that you utilize the free trial and don’t want to rush into making a decision just because it’s cheapest or has the lowest upfront costs. (Try to stick with the trial for as long as you can. Some vendors will try to up-sale you into the full version or else try to trick you into thinking that additional features are included with the free version.)

Just remember that even though you’re trying out a product or service for free, it’s still expensive to develop and deliver. So make sure you’re aware of this before you rush into making a decision. (Often times, you’ll see vendors claim that their product is ‘free’ when in reality, it costs them money to develop and maintain.)

The Cost Of A Free Trial

If you want to make the most out of your free trial, you need to understand how much it costs. This includes the cost of the product or service itself as well as any additional costs that you might need to have in order to make the most of it. (For example, if you’re using a product to send out notifications to your customers. If this is the case, you might need to purchase a license for the product or service in order to do so.)

When someone comes out with a new product or service, they will almost always include upfront costs. However, these will decrease over time depending on how many users the company has. (In many cases, you won’t even notice these costs decrease because they are so low compared to the product/service itself.)

When making a decision about whether or not to try out a product or service, it’s important to think about the costs versus the benefits. If the benefits seem too good to be true, it usually is. (This is especially important if you’re considering paying for the service. Make sure you’re not being fooled by slick sales tactics or overly optimistic claims.)

Make A Note Of All The Limitations

Whenever you’re trying out a product or service, there will always be limitations. This includes both positive and negative aspects. (For example, if you’re testing out Pinterest and you notice that it doesn’t have features that help you to retain customers. Even though it might be beneficial to your business to have a platform like Pinterest, you have to remember that it doesn’t possess all the features you need in order to grow your business.)

Some vendors will try to hide the limitations of their products and services but you have to remember that these are there. (Even though they might not want you to know about them.)

By taking the time to really look at all the limitations before you make a decision, you will be able to utilize the product or service to its full potential. This will greatly increase your chances of being satisfied with the product or service.

Try It Out For A Few Days

When you first sign up for a product or service, you’ll usually be given a small sample of it. In some cases, this might be a free trial version. (In others, it might just be a few articles from their magazine or a few songs from their music library.)

This is important because, as we mentioned above, trying out a product or service doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll like it or that it will change your life. (In most cases, it’s a combination of both.) Even though it might seem like a good idea at first, you could end up being very disappointed if you don’t try it out for a few days before making a decision.

When someone comes out with a new product or service, they will always try to get as much feedback as they can. However, in most cases, this is very difficult because most people aren’t willing to try out a brand new product or service without first hearing about it from someone else. (In a perfect world, we would all do this but in the real world, it’s difficult to get unbiased feedback about a product or service because most people want to either like or dislike a product or service based on their experience with it.)
