So today I’m going to teach you how to do just that – how to upload a file into a ClickFunnels website. Keep reading if this interesting story about file uploads and ClickFunnels piques your interest.
If you’ve ever shopped on eBay or Amazon, you might have noticed something odd about their listings. Chances are you’ve been tricked by a clever scammer, who used a tool called an API key to upload counterfeit or sub-standard products into these websites. These products show up as successful auctions in the listing, and it’s up to you as the buyer to figure out if the product is legitimate or not.
The good news is you can avoid these kinds of scams by ensuring the supplier you’re purchasing from is providing a quality product that meets your standards. When you do business with legitimate companies, you don’t have to worry about fakes showing up in your auctions. You’ll receive the goods as promised, and you can rest assured you’re not being tricked. This also makes it much easier to do business with reputable suppliers, who usually provide excellent customer service.
Step 1: Create a Product and Set the Price:
As mentioned, you can use ClickFunnels to create an online store. Once you’ve chosen that path, you’ll see the welcome page, which will direct you to create a product or service. I’ll go with the latter, as I have an existing service that I want to sell online. So I’ll use the provided template to create a new product listing.
The first step is to come up with a name for your product. You can find a suitable name by putting the product into Amazon’s name translation tool and seeing what pops up. If you don’t have a product yet, you can use the “Create a Product” button to get started. From there, you’ll need to set a price for your product (this is the price you’ll be charging per item).
If you’re wondering what all this means, simply put, is that you’re creating a shop that you’ll sell products from. When a customer clicks the Buy button, they’ll be taken to your shop, where they’ll find your products. When they make a purchase, you’ll receive the money through PayPal.
Step 2: Create a Sales Page:
In the next step, you’ll need to create a sales page for your product. To do this, visit your product’s detail page, which you can find by clicking on the item in your cart. From there, you can click “Create a Sales Page” to begin the process.
When you create a sales page, your product’s information – including its descriptions and images – will be displayed along with pricing and delivery information.
Also, you’ll notice there are various types of special offers on the product’s page. These offers range from coupons to free deliveries for purchases above a certain amount. You can segment your audience based on their interest in your product, and present them with customized forms, tailored to their particular needs.
Step 3: Design the Page:
When you have a clear idea of what your sales page’s design should look like, you can move on to the next step. To create a stunning looking sales page, you’ll need to invest in a good quality template. If you’re on a budget, it’s best to go for a premium template, as they look better and allow for more flexibility. Even better, purchase a theme that is specifically designed for e-commerce sites, as they’re built to look sharp and professional.
Step 4: Customize the Page:
Now that you have a template for your sales page, you can start customizing it to suit your product. To do this, simply click on the “Edit Page” button at the top of your page. Then, from there you can start adding content. You can add product images, add more detailed information about your product, change the page’s layout and even add additional products (this is where your add-ons will go).
When you add more products, the page will automatically display a sidebar, containing all the products you’ve added. If you want to add more items to the main viewing area, simply click on the “Columns” button located in the page’s upper right corner. To keep your visitor’s interested, add compelling content filled with relevant information.
Also, don’t forget about the little details, such as the page’s header, which is made of image and text. You can use the header’s title to give it a more prominent position on your website. Plus, since it’s the first thing a visitor will see, it makes a great opportunity to grab their attention.
Step 5: Test the Page:
When you’re done customizing and adding content to your sales page, it’s time to test it. First, click on “Preview” at the top of your page. Next, click on the green “Get URL” button located in the top right of the preview window. This will open a small window, and in it you’ll see a link to your page’s URL.
When you visit this URL in your browser, you’ll see your product’s information and you can start exploring the rest of the website. Make sure to click on the “Shop Now” button to visit your shop.
If you want to learn more, click on the “Products” tab located in the website’s header and you’ll see all your products listed in alphabetical order. From there, you can click on any product to see more information.
Also, don’t forget about the keywords, as these can be really helpful in driving traffic to your site. If you want to rank well in Google, it is important to use relevant keywords throughout your site. When a search engine visitor lands on your site, they’ll enter a series of keys into the search bar, and your website will appear in their results, because it matches exactly what they’re looking for.
Step 6: Upload Files:
Here you can select the files you’d like to upload and the form will move to the next step. If you want to add more attachments, simply click on the “+ Attachments” button.
Ensure you’ve selected the right file type (usually a PDF, Microsoft Word or Excel document) and click on the “Submit” button.
If you added all the required files, you’ll see a success message at the top right of the screen. If there’s a problem, you’ll see it in the form of a red bar at the top of the screen.
Step 7: Payment Settings:
After you successfully completed the file upload, you’ll need to set up a payment method for your new customer. To do this, click on the “Payment Settings” link located in the website’s header. Then, from there you can select “Payment Gateway” and make a note of what credit card you’ll be using.
Also, click on the “Profile” tab located in the website’s header and make sure to update your personal information, including your email address.
