Did you know that there are actually several different ways to use the same ClickFunnels account? One of the best features of this tool is how easy it is to create multiple, dedicated websites within one account. You can move the “body” of a site anywhere within the ClickFunnels platform, but as long as you use the same URL, the “traffic” (read: email subscribers) will still follow your old blog or website. This can be incredibly helpful if, for example, you want to take your blog to the next level but don’t have the time to set up a whole new blog from scratch.

Pro-Tip: If you already have a website or blog from which you want to move a clone, you can use the Websites link within the ClickFunnels dashboard to import all of the content from the original site to your new location.

Another great way to use the power of the Clone tool is to simply create a new website within the ClickFunnels dashboard and use the Clone to replicate all of the content from one site to another. This is a quick and easy way to get up and running with a new site, and it also allows you to try out different design templates within the ClickFunnels platform (including the classic white background with green text, which some people refer to as the “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” look).

But if you want to really play around with the design options and don’t want to commit to starting from scratch, you can also use the Canvas tool within the ClickFunnels dashboard to design and build a fully custom site from the ground up. If you’re already using WordPress as your blog platform, you can use the Drag & Drop tool to easily move elements like text boxes, images, and blocks of content from one post to another. Plus, you can use the WordPress Backstage to easily make edits to your newly built site.

Using the Clone tool to move a WordPress blog step by step

If you’ve decided to use the Clone tool to help you move your blog in the manner described above, you’ll first need to download and install the WordPress plugin from ClickFunnels. Once you’ve done this, you can jump into the WordPress dashboard to setup your new blog. (You can also use the Clone tool to create a new site from scratch, but for some reason, WordPress seems to be the most popular platform amongst webmasters and bloggers who use the Clone tool to help them move content from one location to another. So, if you want to try out this feature, WordPress is the platform you’ll want to use.)

Once you’re in the WordPress dashboard, you can click the Plugins link in the header menu to browse through the various plugins available for download. (Remember: Always look for plugins that are up to date and check for support and updates as needed.)

From there, you can click the Install button to download and install the WordPress Clone plugin. Once installed, you can click the Clone button in the WordPress toolbar to get started cloning your content.

As you may have guessed, the Clone tool in WordPress allows you to take a current blog post (typically an article) and move it to a new location. So, if you want to try out this feature, you can use the Clone tool to pull existing blog posts from WordPress.com to WordPress.org and vice versa. You can find instructions on how to do this easily on the Clone plugin’s support site.

Once you’ve cloned your content, you can click the Dashboard link in the WordPress dashboard to display the Clone dashboard. From here, you can click on the Files tab to view all of the content you’ve cloned. And from this tab, you can click on any of the files to view the post in WordPress.

If you followed the steps outlined in the previous section, you’ll have already installed the Clone plugin in WordPress. So, now that you’re looking at the Clone dashboard, you can click on the Edit button to create a new post within the dashboard.

From the drop-down menu on the Clone post editing screen, you can select the blog location from which you want to pull content. Then, you can click the Publish button to publish your post. And if you follow the steps outlined above, you’ll end up with a fresh, new post on your new blog.

In the WordPress dashboard, you can click on the Menu button (found near the top-right corner of the screen) to display the main menu for your site. From here, you can click on the Blog link to view all of your blog posts. And if you check under the Published section of any of the posts, you’ll see that they’re now available for public viewing on your new blog.

The Bottom Line

When used properly, the Clone tool in ClickFunnels is one of the best value-added services the platform has to offer. When coupled with the CMS (Content Management System) provided by WordPress, it’s also one of the easiest and most user-friendly services to get up and running with a new site or blog.

If you’ve decided that the Clone tool is the right fit for your needs, you can download the CMS-based product from ClickFunnels. Once you’ve installed the plugin, you can use it to quickly and easily set up a new blog or website from the ground up. Or, if you want, you can import all of the content from one site to another. (This is typically done by creating a new site within the ClickFunnels dashboard and using the Clone tool to pull content from your existing blog or website.)
