You’ve probably heard of ClickFunnels. The popular online tool allows you to build sales pages, email funnels, and more for free.
What if I tell you that there’s an entire section on the ClickFunnels website dedicated to teaching you how to clone any funnel you might need for free?
Let’s take a look.
Step 1: Select The Funnel To Clone.
You’ll need to pick the funnel that you want to clone. Whether you’re looking to create a sales page or have an existing opt-in funnel, you can select it and then choose the template that you want to use. You can always change the template later by going to Settings → Design and entering a new theme.
Step 2: Download The Source Code.
Now that you’ve got your funnel selected, you’ll need to download the source code. This is the code that’s located behind the scenes and allows you to build the funnel as you see it. If you’ve already got a sales page created with a similar funnel, you can use that as an example to download the source code for your project.
Step 3: Unzip The Source Code.
When you’ve downloaded the source code for your funnel, you’ll need to unzip it. This will create a folder that contains the original WordPress installation along with all of the source code for your funnel. You can click here to see an example.
Make sure that you don’t delete anything from your hard drive during this process. In case you did, you can use the Forgotten Password functionality on the site to restore it. This is one of the most useful free features on the site.
Step 4: Import The Funnel Into WordPress.
Once you’ve unzipped the folder containing your funnel, you can import it into WordPress. To do this, click on Tools in the left menu on the dashboard. Then click on Import and then select the Unzipped Folder. After that, click on Continue.
You can now begin customizing your funnel. Be sure to use the original WP_Import docs as a guide during this process as it will help you get up and running quickly. You don’t need to follow the exact steps as it is pretty self-explanatory. Just make sure that you do exactly what is asked of you. Otherwise, you could end up overwriting something.
Step 5: Configure The Funnel As You Need It.
Once you’ve imported your funnel into WordPress, you can start by configuring it as you see fit. Go to Settings → Reading to see a list of all of the articles and content that you’ve accumulated. You can also use this list to determine what settings you want to use for your funnel.
Step 6: Create The Cloning Template.
To start the process of cloning your funnel, you’ll need to create a new blank page in WordPress. Once you’ve got that, you can follow these steps:
- Go to Settings → Writing and choose a template for your content.
- Activate the clonable trait for your content.
- Scroll down to Header and enter a title for your page.
- Click on Save Draft.
- Name your new page and click on Publish.
Step 7: Activate The Funnel Template.
Using the URL of your new page, you can now activate the Funnel template to begin using it. To do this, click on the gear icon on the left menu bar, select Settings and then click on the Template Tab. Finally, click on Active to make the template active.
Step 8: Add Some Content To The Funnel.
The next step is to add content to your funnel. To do this, go to your newly created page and click on the Dashboard. Once you’re on the Dashboard, you can click on the Plus icon at the top to see a list of all the available areas to add content.
If you want to add an optin form to your site, you could click on the Empty Space beneath the Plus icon to see a list of all the available areas. Simply choose the one that you want and begin adding content to it.
Step 9: Configure The Optin Form.
The very first piece of content that you’ll want to add to your funnel is the optin form. This is the form that’s at the beginning of your funnel. To add it, click on the Dashboard, hover over the Plus icon and then click on the Empty Space area. You’ll see a list of all the available areas in the page. Choose the one that you want and begin adding content to it.
You’ll notice four options along the top of the page. These are the different areas that you can fill with content. When choosing an area, make sure that the Trait is set to Clonable. Otherwise, you’ll have trouble cloning this section later on.
Step 10: Add Some Other Content.
Adding content to your funnel is simple. You just need to add content where you see the plus icon. If you’ve been following along so far, you’ll have an optin form and a few other areas with content. To add more, just click on the Plus icon again and this time choose an area from the drop-down menu. Repeat this step as many times as you need for additional content sections.
Using the original WP_Import docs as a guide, you can now begin customizing your imported template. Just remember to use your own unique URL as a guide.
