This post will teach you how to put Clickfunnels with WordPress to work for you. It will cover such topics as; setting up the funnel, collecting emails, and more.

Step 1: The Basics

Before you start making any money from Clickfunnels, you need to have a signup form on your website. You also need to have a good understanding of what a funnel is and how it works. Luckily, we have a sample funnel already built for you to look at and implement on your own site.

For those of you who are new to the concept of funnels and wondering what one is, a funnel is a marketing tool used to capture and convert potential customers into paying customers.

The goal of a marketing funnel is to attract visitors to a site or app, convince them to take action (such as subscribing to a mailing list or making a purchase), and then convince them to return.

The reason why you’ll often see marketing funnels nested inside each other is because creating a funnel is largely a process of gathering information, often from multiple sources, before you put together a piece of content to attract and convert potential customers.

Step 2: Setting Up The Funnel On Your WordPress Site

Go to your WordPress dashboard and click on the “Settings” button in the top right corner.

You’ll then see the “Reading” settings screen appear.

You can use the dropdown menus to choose between “Reading” and “Writing.” Let’s set this up to display the Reading screen so that you can begin laying out your blog posts.

In order to set up a funnel on your WordPress site, you’ll need to do the following:

  • Navigate to the “Settings” screen in your WordPress dashboard.
  • Click on the “Reading” tab at the top of the screen.
  • Choose “Posts” from the dropdown menu.
  • Click on the “Save Changes” button at the bottom of the screen.

The Result

You’ll now see a post layout screen with a single post displayed on it. Because we’ve already set up a simple signup form with Name, Email, and a “Submit” button in the previous step, all we need to do now is add some content to the form. Let’s walk through the process of adding an article to this blog post. You’ll use the same process to add content to any of your funnels.

To add content to a funnel, click on “New Post” in the blue bar at the top of the screen.

This will display the “Text” box, which you can use to enter some content for the blog post. You’ll notice that the “New Post” button is replaced with a “Publish” button once you enter some content.

Once you click on the “Publish” button, the content will be displayed on your site along with the title and description assigned to it.

You can add another blog post to this site by clicking on the “New Post” button once more. Each time you add content to a funnel, the content is appended to the end of the last post displayed. So if you enter an article and then navigate to another section of the site, you’ll see a new article added to the end of the last post displayed.

Step 3: Adding Sales Links & Collecting Emails

As you might imagine, a key component of any funnel is capturing an email address from a visitor. Let’s walk through adding a bit of code to your blog post to allow visitors to sign up for your email list.

The first step is to add a little bit of code to your blog post in the form of a simple `

` tag. You’ll need to add this tag somewhere within the content of your blog post. So let’s say that you’ve just published your very first blog post, and you want to set up a form to collect emails from your readers.

So you’ll add the `

` tag to your post, as follows:


Step 3: Adding Sales Links & Collecting Emails


This form will be pretty basic, and it will only capture an email address and name. It will not include any payment information. If a reader wants to continue along the funnel path and make a purchase later, they’ll have to return to your site or one of your social media accounts.

To begin collecting emails, all you need to do is add another `` tag with the name “email” and the value of the email address entered by the user.


Step 3: Adding Sales Links & Collecting Emails


An important point to make here is that although you’ve given the email address, the visitor still has the option of opting out of receiving emails from you by using a standard link provided they want to do so. For example, suppose you’ve sent a promotional offer from a clothing store and the customer decided they wanted to keep their email address but didn’t want to receive any more emails. Then they can click the link and stop receiving those promotional offers.

If they don’t want to stop receiving emails, they can include another email address in the `` tag with the name “username” and the value of their username. 

To add a little CSS styling, you can edit the form using the built-in CSS styles. Simply click on the “Design” tab in the top right corner of your WordPress dashboard and you’ll see the “Form” option in the sidebar. Click on that and you’ll see editing options for all the forms on your site.

Once you’ve edited the form, you can preview how it looks by clicking on the “Preview” button. When you’re happy with the results, save the changes by clicking on the “Save” button at the bottom of the form.

Making Money With Funnels

If you’ve been paying attention, you might have noticed that we didn’t go into great detail about how to make money with funnels. That’s because, contrary to popular belief, making money online is quite easy as long as you follow the right steps. 

As a general rule, the more sophisticated the tool, the more money you’ll make. For example, if you’ve got a tool that allows you to target your specific audience and use a variety of marketing funnels, you’re basically guaranteed to make money.

But if you’ve got a simple form with just a few fields, you can still make some cash. For example, you could create a free blog and use the funnel to gather emails.
