One of the biggest struggles that every online marketer faces is remembering all the tiny details about a particular product or service. You likely have hundreds or thousands of products that you want to promote online, and it’s easy for things to slip your mind. When this happens it’s often difficult to remember exactly what the product was called, the various attributes, the pricing, and the sales page content.

You’d think that after a while, this challenge would become frustrating and you’d just give up. But thanks to the amazing people at ClickFunnels, the Internet’s #1 digital marketing platform, building an entire business around saving and sharing online marketing templates, this challenge has a solution.

In this article, I’ll walk you through step-by-step how to take your ClickFunnels knowledge, skills, and templates, and save them so that you can access them from any device with an Internet connection.

Step one: Take note of the important details

The first step in downloading and using templates is to take careful note of the important details. You’ll want to create a mental checklist of everything you need to remember about the product or service that you’re using the template for. The more you can remember, the easier it will be to use the template successfully

For example, if you’re using a sales page template for Amazon products, you’ll want to make sure that you’ve got the right Amazon id, that you’ve set the right pricing, and that you’ve done all the correct keyword stuffing.

The more you can remember, the more you can automate successful campaigns using the template. This will save you a tremendous amount of time and stress, not to mention the frustration that comes with forgetting important details.

Step two: Create an index and save the documents

The next step is to create an index of all the documents you’ve created. This process will take some time, but it’s an invaluable step for anyone who’s trying to keep track of a large number of documents. In addition to creating an index, you should also put a note on each document identifying its purpose and keeping track of what’s been done so far. This will make it much easier to go back and follow up on any of the projects you’re working on.

Once you’ve finished creating your index, you can start the second step: saving the documents. To do this, navigate to your “My Website” page in the upper right corner of your screen. Then click on the “My Products” entry to expand the list of products you’ve created. You’ll see a button at the top of the page that says “Downloads” or “Exportable Content.”

If you’ve already downloaded the products to your computer, simply click on the “Exportable Content” button to download a Zip file containing all the products you’ve created. This step will save you the time of going through the long process of uploading everything one by one.

Step three: Start experimenting

Now that you’ve got all your documents saved, it’s time to start experimenting. The best way to learn how to use a new product is to actually use it. So to save your templates for future use, log into your ClickFunnels dashboard and create a new product or service. Once you create it, you’ll see a big “+” symbol at the top right corner of the page. Click on this symbol and you’ll see an option to quickly create a new landing page or blog post.

To start experimenting with a product, simply click on the template for that product and you’ll be taken to a blank template. Fill in the details for the product that you have in mind that you want to experiment with and click on the “Build” button. This will create a brand new landing page or blog post with all the content, layouts, and design elements that you’ve previously saved for that product.

You can do this with any of the products on your My Products page. Simply click on the template to go to a blank canvas and start experimenting. Don’t worry, for products that don’t have any previous templates, you’ll be asked to choose a template when you click on the “Build” button. So even if you’ve never used a product or service, you’ll have some options to choose from.

Step four: Publish your content

Once you’ve completed your experiments and you’re happy with what you’ve created, it’s time to publish your content. To do this, log into your ClickFunnels dashboard and navigate to your “My Blog” page. You’ll see a list of all the content that you’ve created on your website. Just click on the date to get to the specific blog post and then click on the “Read More” button.

Each blog post or landing page you’ve created is like a scientific experiment that you’re running to test out different variables. Now that you’ve got the results, it’s time to publish your findings. To save your hard work, just click on the “Published” button next to the content you want to publish.

This will automatically take you to a new blank template for the product you’re using. Just fill in the details for the product you’re using and then click on the “Build” button. This will create a brand new blog post or sales page based on what you’ve previously saved for that product.

Keep in mind: Whenever you publish content, whether it’s experiment results or actual content, you’re giving it away for free. So make sure that you’ve got a good reason for doing this. If someone asks you why you’re publishing your content, you can simply say that you’re trying to save it for later use or that you want to continue experimenting. Don’t worry too much about what others think, and remember that you’re the expert on your own business.

Step five: Check your work

Now that you’ve saved all your important details and you’ve built a new product or service from scratch using a pre-existing template, it’s time to check your work. To do this, log into your ClickFunnels dashboard and navigate to your “My Products” page. You’ll see your product or service listed along with its associated template. Just click on the product to view its page.

On this page, you’ll see all the important metrics for that particular product including how many websites there are currently using that template, how many times the product has been downloaded, and how much money it’s made or lost so far. In addition, you can see the entire marketing plan for that product including all the key performance indicators such as how many leads you’ve gotten, how much money you’ve spent, and how much value you’ve delivered. This information is crucial for determining whether or not you’ve successfully used that template.

Step six: Make changes as needed

Now that you’ve saved all your important details and you’ve built a new product or service from scratch using a pre-existing template, it’s time to make changes as needed. This is the step where you’ll be inputting the most information. From here, you can make edits to the HTML, design, and content as needed to fit your specific needs. If you’ve recently saved a new template for a product that you’ve already created and tested, you can use these changes to enhance the existing product or service. This is a great way to get started because it allows you to make continuous improvements.

To view all the changes you’ve made, simply log into your ClickFunnels dashboard and navigate to your “My Products” page. You’ll see all the products you’ve created with their associated template and the status of each product (i.e. Live, Active, or Completed.). Just click on the product to go to its details page and then click on the “Activity” tab to see all the changes you’ve made.

Step seven: Share your work

The final step in using templates is to share your work with other marketers. The best way to learn is by sharing, and if you’re ever going to be able to successfully use templates, it’s going to be because of people like you who are willing to share their work with others. To do this, log into your ClickFunnels dashboard and navigate to your “My Products” page. Just click on the product you want to share and then click on the “View Website” button. This will take you to a new page containing a fully-functional demo site for that product.
