If you’re new to Clickfunnels, you might feel overwhelmed (understatement most likely). It’s normal and natural to feel this way because funnel building is actually an entire suite of tasks, not just one simple task. The art of funnelbuilding includes:
…so consider this permission from an Expert Funnelbuilder…it’s okay if you feel overwhelmed!
Today’s post is the first one in a series, and is going to help you work through the new FunnelBuilder Menu when you click the yellow button “BUILD NEW FUNNEL”.
The Menu bar on the left is meant to help you narrow down what kind of funnel you might like to build.
Some of you may have heard that Clickfunnels has given out over $8 Million dollars in affiliate revenue in 2017 alone?! How many of you would like a piece of that pie? The best way to do that is to learn from the best. So I’m going to break down a bit how the top affiliates manage to make most of their cash!
By the way, it goes without saying…make sure you sign up for the Clickfunnels 100 Day Affiliate Bootcamp. You can register for FREE here.
Think of it like a business
The top affiliates all treat their Clickfunnels affiliate campaigns like a business, or in the context of one. It’s imperative that you create a business that compliments the selling of the software. Here are a bunch of types of business ideas you can set up:
Digital Marketing Strategist
This is how I initially got momentum as an affiliate.
Last year was my first Funnelhacking Live event. I remember staring at my computer screen, looking at the ticket prices and wondering if it was worth it….
How many hilarious emojis can I add to this post?
I can’t believe I even worried about this for a minute!
Looking back, it was the craziest thing ever to wonder if going to Funnelhacking Live would be worth it. The teaching, the connections, the inspiration…it was a monumental event that not only profoundly impacted me during the three day event, but for months afterwards.
This year promises to be even bigger and more meaningful than any of the years prior, and to help push fence sitters off – I’d like to highlight some of the speakers who will make attending this live event 1000% worth it.
Black Friday is coming…the only time of year when it doesn’t look desperate to slash prices! If you’ve got funnels up and running, now’s the time (like TODAY) to create some kickin’ Black Friday specials.
Here are a couple ways to do it….
Get the PROMO script inside Funnel U
The Promo script allows you to create a special offer with a coupon code on your order forms. You can get inside the Funnel U members area where there is the code, plus a video training on how to insert it into your funnels! Then all you have to do is send out some emails with your coupon codes!
Create the “appearance” of sales with your order form text
A great way to add a Black Friday feel is to simply adjust the wording on the product description.
The webinar registration page is the most important page in your funnel. If people don’t feel that ache of curiosity, they won’t opt in, they won’t watch, and they won’t buy. Rather than leaving your webinar registration page to the end, make it the first thing you do!
Your webinar registration does not have to be complicated, and in fact – it’s one of the simplest and FASTEST pages to make. My recommendation is that you make the registration page FIRST, before anything else. By doing so you will have all the pieces you need to create the first half of your webinar.
Here are the three CRUCIAL pieces of info you need:
- Three Secrets
These are the three critical pieces of any webinar.
Have you ever wondered what the difference is between someone who is amazing at what they do vs. someone who is the best in the world? Most of us would settle for amazing right? After all, a very small minority of people will ever BE the actual best in the world at something, so why try.
Here’s why you should try….
The path to becoming the best in the world – even if you don’t reach that coveted status – the journey of trying will position you so far above the competition, you’ll never worry about wealth again.
I asked several of the #funnelhackers in our community – the ones who are the best in the world at what they do – what they think gets you there. I’m calling them Besters.
If any of you have read Expert Secrets, on page 167 – Russell confuses all of us teachers by suggesting we can’t teach during our webinars. What does he mean? How can you deliver valuable content to your audience, build trust, and make sales – and not teach?
Before we dig into what this actually means, it’s imperative that you’ve read the book. So stop what you’re doing and go get it, and then come back.
Awesome. You’re back.
The basic outline of the perfect webinar is this:
- Build rapport
- Take your prospect on a journey
- Break false beliefs and rebuild them using three secrets
- Create an irresistible offer (or stack)
- Sell it to them
All the details are in the book,
There’s nothing worse than a GORGEOUS funnel page that is completely unoptimized for mobile. Remember that over 50% of traffic is now mobile, so we should all be thinking about MOBILE first, desktop second. So to that end, I’d like to give you a few tips on how to style your pages.
Understand the mobile experience is one VERTICAL list
This means all those fancy columns and lists don’t render on mobile the way they do on desktop. When you’re working in the Power Editor, any blue columns will stack. Here’s an example of a blue column on desktop…
…and here’s the mobile version.
It’s not horrible right? But it’s clear that this design was not designed for mobile first, but rather second. So there are a few ways you can deal with this!
Before we tackle this topic, you should know – most funnels don’t work when you launch them. Even if you’re a pro, it may take two, three, four, or ten tries until you get it right (just ask Russell who had to change his funnel for Clickfunnels six times before it converted). People who don’t launch their funnel because they are trying to get it perfect are deluded. Seriously. You’ll never know if it’s perfect until you launch it anyway, so put it out there – even if it’s ugly, boring, or lame.
That said, once it’s out there, how are you able to troubleshoot where the issues are when they come up? Here are some of my top tips for deciphering where your funnel might be leaking.
The Landing Page
There’s a super easy way to know if your landing page is converting.
If it’s not obvious by the 8 million questions regarding Facebook Ads in the Clickfunnels Facebook group, ads give people a LOT of trouble! Facebook changes its algorithm, Power Editor, and policies constantly. And if you’re using Facebook Ads to fill your funnel with traffic, as annoying as it is to keep up, YOU MUST.
I’ve just recently come back from a six week hiatus after my ad account got shut down. And in my research, I learned a few ways (right now September 2017) that will help keep your LANDING PAGES compliant.
Yes, your landing pages. Facebook is not just about the ad anymore — they also care a lot about the landing page that the newsfeed scroller lands on. I could write an entire other post on ads, but today I want to focus on your Clickfunnels landing pages.
