My Rating: 100/10
Over this summer I was introduced to a software called ClickFunnels, and during this time, I had no idea how I was going to make money on my website. I was very skeptical about this software at first, for a number of reasons. It sounded too good to be true, seemed way too easy, and I had no idea how or where I would use it. I was stuck. Now after doing my homework and letting the concept of funnels sit in the back of my mind, the possibilities of how I can use ClickFunnels has exploded. Not only do I now have a million avenues as to take my own business, but also help others with theirs.
Russell Brunson is from Boise, Idaho, and was one of the best wrestlers in the nation during college. He started his internet marketing by selling a potato gun video, eventually added a potato gun kit to that process, and from there developed several types of software. In his senior year of college, he made over $250,000, and the year after he cleared a million. His philosophy is to put in the hard work now for a couple of months and let your money work for you once you’ve made it. He now has an inner circle and two comma club, for the ClickFunnel members who clear a million dollars in sales through using their software.
The ClickFunnels software was created by Russell Brunson a little over three years ago, and while their time on the market is not very long, Russell has been in marketing since he was a kid, and has over fifteen years now working on creating software to improve business metrics. In just three years, ClickFunnels has grown to a hundred million dollar company. So what makes ClickFunnels stand out from their competitors? In essence, it is very similar to the other landing page software such as LeadPages or SamCart. In practicality, Clickfunnels offers much more variety and depth than the competition.
Creating leads or selling a product online is a great game in the short term. When it comes to keeping your customers and spreading your name through the best advertising possible (word of mouth-free, honest, and trustworthy), ClickFunnels covers it all.
Where do you want to take your business?
ClickFunnels offers millions of combinations of sales funnels for you to play around with. Whether you need a simple hero funnel so your customers or followers can get to know you better, or if you want to stack products for upsells or downsells, it’s all here. There are templates for each funnel already set up for you, each with subtemplates for each page in the funnel. All you have to do is go through and change the information to your liking.
The fantastic software that ClickFunnels is offers an easy to use design composed of sections, rows, columns, and elements. Sections are what make up each part of the page, and depending on how much you are showing, you may have one or a dozen sections. From there, you break up your section into rows or columns, to divide paragraphs, videos, optins and much more. Once you’ve done that, add in your elements, which are the paragraphs, buttons, videos, optins, your own HTML codes, timers, and much more. Once you’ve got layout setup, configure the small details such as colors, edges, animation, text size, etc.
From there, you can integrate email autoresponders, fill out your SEO metadata, tracking data, typography, backgrounds, popups, plugins, and much more. Russell is not the developer, as he says he doesn’t know the first thing about programming. He plays to his strengths, which is selling and teaching people how to use his products. Every video you watch regarding how to use the software or any related products are with Russell. All of the elements are drag and drop, and he will continually tell you to try and break the software, as it is not possible.
While this is a general overview of a fraction of what ClickFunnels has to offer, you will have to spend some time within the software to know how it can help your business. There is a somewhat steep learning curve. However, they recently added several training videos with prizes for each daily task. I’ve gotten two t-shirts and a big laptop sticker since doing the training. If you choose to upgrade your account, you are given access to Actionetics, which is ClickFunnel’s own email autoresponder, so you do not have to outsource to places such as Active Campaign or MailChimp. You also get access to Backpack, which helps you keep track of your ClickFunnel affiliates, which pays you 40% commissions for anything they buy through your initial link. Get 100 people to join ClickFunnels because of you, and Russell will buy you your dream car.
“Ultimately, the business that can spend the most to acquire a customer wins” – Dan Kennedy
One of my favorite parts of ClickFunnels is how much you get for what you pay for. Russell has a lot of free or basically free stuff for all of his customers. The quote above is from his book, DotComSecrets, something he gives away for free; you just pay $8 for shipping and handling. Dan Kennedy is known for being a marketing genius for decades, and his quote rings true. Russell uses the example of Mcdonalds many times in his training videos. He says that while Mcdonalds loses money selling you a hamburger, they double and triple their profits with the upsells of fries, drinks, etc. They spend the most money to get you in their drive-thru, and how often do you see an empty Mcdonalds parking lot?
Something else that is interesting about Dan Kennedy is that my martial arts instructor Duane Brumitt has helped him write a book titled “The Ultimate Success Secret ” which has been (wait for it) ultimately successful. Not only do I have access to an amazing software to help me grow my business as well others, but I also get help with the discipline and having the right attitude about helping others while making a living. I had no idea about my karate Professor’s involvement with marketing until recently, which came as a great surprise. Dan Kennedy is widely known for helping business’ grow exponentially, and Russell talks about him a lot both in and out of his book.
There are very few aspects of ClickFunnels that I am not fond of, and the only one that comes to mind is the number of funnels you get for the $97 version. You are limited to 20 funnels, 100 pages, and 20,000 visitors to those pages in the regular plan. Upgraded, these numbers are infinite. Other than that, I am pleased with Russell’s company as a whole. The support team is fantastic, I have had a one on one call with one of their technicians who helped me plan where I am going to go with my funnels, and any question you have can be answered through their help docs or their facebook pages.
If you would like to add an extra thousand, double, or even triple your monthly revenue, I highly recommend you check out ClickFunnels, and see what their spectacular software can do for you.
