You’ve built a funnels account on ClickFunnels, now what? How do you promote it?
You’d think that the simple answer would be “put more ads on your site!” However, that’s not necessarily the case. Sure, you could throw more ads on your site to boost your overall revenue. But, if that’s all you do, you’ll never make much money from your funnel. You need to find a way to engage users and encourage them to do business with you.
That’s why you need to opt-in to paid advertising through Facebook.
In this blog post, you’ll discover proven methods for using Facebook Ads to promote your ClickFunnels account. We’ll cover off-site monetization, organic social media marketing, and more.
Off-site monetization simply means making money from sources or products that are not related to your website. In the case of Amazon Associates, you receive a commission from every purchase that is made through your website (ie: shop.clickfunnels.com, leadgen.clickfunnels.com, etc.).
There are several proven methods for off-site monetization. For example, you can sell and display ads on other sites, like Medium.com or Google Adsense. Or, if you’re an affiliate marketer, you can make money through affiliate sales on third party sites (like Amazon.com).
Organic Social Media Marketing
When we think about paid advertising on social media, we typically think about creating ads and running them on Facebook, Google, and other similar platforms. While that’s certainly an option, you can also carry out organic social media marketing, which doesn’t involve paying for each individual interaction. In fact, with organic social media marketing, you’ll need to build up a following of engaged people on the platforms you choose before you can start making money from your efforts.
For example, if you run a Twitter account for your business (@username), you can use the platform to engage with your followers and gain their trust. Once you have their trust, you can start promoting your products and making money from your Twitter account.
When you compare the overall cost of paid advertisements on Facebook, Google, and similar platforms to the cost of organic social media marketing, you’ll quickly understand why so many entrepreneurs and marketers choose to solely rely on organic methods.
Paid advertisements on social media networks can cost you anywhere from a few dollars to several hundred dollars per day. While that might not seem like a major cost difference, over the course of a year, that can add up to a significant sum of money.
When you compare that to organic social media marketing, which can cost you only a few dollars to several hundred dollars per month, depending on the plan you choose, you’ll quickly understand why so many entrepreneurs and marketers choose to solely rely on organic methods.
If you’re not sure which method is best suited to your situation, you can simply choose to do both. While it’s not always possible to rely solely on organic methods, you can always rely on paid advertisements to gain more exposure on social media.
