If you want to grow your business in these modern times, you need to be thinking about marketing online. Whether you run a digital business or a local service, you need to be advertising online. Whether you are selling products or providing services, you need to be doing so online.
Whichever way you look at it, we live in a digital world, and therefore that’s where you’ll find your customers. Customers that are both loyal to brands they like, but also customers who can be influenced.
The choice that people now have at their fingertips, means you will struggle to keep customers unless you give them a reason to stay loyal. On the flip side, this provides you with masses of opportunity to acquire new customers.
Before you think about marketing your business to these people, you are going to need some marketing tools. If you haven’t already heard of ClickFunnels, you soon will! ClickFunnels is now the number 1 SAS (Software as a System) platform in the world. It’s founder Russell Brunson is becoming known as the number 1 marketeer around.
There are many tools to do marketing online. ClickFunnels is one of the popular tools among those.
With this software, you can easily do funnel marketing. In order to create a complete funnel, you can get all the components in the ClickFunnels. I have now tried all of ClickFunnels competitors and can hands down say this is the best on the market.
It is not the cheapest product on the market, but having trialled Kajabi, it’s cheaper competitor, the extra cost is worth it. The simple interface is easy to use, but the winner for me is the fact that you can share and copy other successful marketing funnels.
If you are new to marketing, this basically means you can get cheap or even free ready made funnels.
When you sign up yo will see there is a marketplace where you can get these resources. This is a game changer for non technical people like me!
Take a look at this bridge page that we created to promote Russell’s book. This page has video and interactive forms, yet it only took me 15 minutes to build! And I’m reasonably inexperienced.
As you can see, it looks like a professional website, and it also looks very similar to the ClickFunnels page that actually promotes this product. You might be asking why I created a page that looks similar to the sales page for the product. Let’s get in to the benefits of ClickFunnels and you will see why every business needs this awesome software.
By following our methods, you can also succeed in using ClickFunnels in online business. So let us show the 5 secret formulas for sales growth.
1. Grow your email list
So you have spent weeks and months building your social presence, and have started to get some followers for what you do. What if Facebook or Instagram closed your account without any warning! Yes, this happens, and it happened to me.
I had built up a following of over 400 followers with a Multi-Level Marketing Business that I was building. I went to log in to Instagram and find my account to be closed. That was 4 months ago and still I have not had a response from their customer service team to explain why!
You don’t own those contacts and followers, so don’t rely on them. Build your own database and collect email addresses. This is the only database of customers that you can market to when and how you like… until they unsubscribe of course!
In ClickFunnels, you can create a landing page specifically designed to encourage readers to give you their email address in exchange for a freebie.
This page is also called “opt-in page”.
For this funnel to work, you need to come up with an irresistible lead magnet.
Lead magnets are extremely valuable freebies that you can give visitors in exchange for their email addresses.
Here is a list of common lead magnets.
- exclusive reports
- a major discount
- special promos
- cheat sheets
Look at your audience and think about what they really, really want to get.
For example, if you’re a personal trainer, maybe provide a guide to the top 10 exercises that you recommend for muscle building.
Once you have the email address, you can use email auto responder software to email your customer whenever you like.
2. Build your entire sales funnel.
Setting up a sales funnel can be tough is you have never done it before. However as I mentioned before Clickfunnels takes the pain out of it
Here’s an example of a sales funnel. As you can see there are a lot of pages to build, and this can be daunting if you have never done it before.
Putting these pages together yourself in a website builder would take a long time. You could even sign up to another landing page provider, but this is still a lot of effort to put it together.
In ClickFunnels though you just select the ‘Sell Your Product’ button, and boom, there’s your template funnel ready to go!
I have yet to find any software on the market that competes with ClickFunnels in provuding this ease of functionality
3. Host paid content.
I know some online course creators who were having trouble figuring out how to make their premium online courses in WordPress accessible to specific people who bought the course.
The thing is… WordPress sucks for selling. It’s made for blogging, not selling.
ClickFunnels, on the other hand, was built to sell. It lets you host your paid content like video training, templates, checklists, blueprints, and more. You can then share this content by creating a membership funnel.
Once you go to ClickFunnels login page and sign in, just click “+ Create Funnel”.
Then select “Membership Funnel” and click the “+ Create Funnel”button:
Now you need to name your funnel. Choose the template you want for each step.
You can then adapt and amend the look of the pages. This can then be made available to those people that bought your course.
4. Create a Coaching Funnel
There are so many people now using ClickFunnels to market themselves as an expert coach. If you now something more than somebody else, you can coach! that’s the words of Russell Brunson, and I have to agree with him.
I know of coaching programs ranging from $19 through to Tony Robbins who is charging $75k per year!
IF you do wish to sell yourself as an expert coach, ClickFunnels is perfect.
The goal of any high ticket coaching funnel is to get your potential client to call you.
Because when the customer is calling you, you can really convince them that your coaching is right for them. You can ask them questions and start to coach them in the moment.
Here’s a sample high-ticket coaching sales funnel:
Here’s a case study of Winning International’s highly successful high ticket coaching funnel with a 4,034% ROI.
In the past 2 weeks I have been contacted to join 3 coaching programs, all of which were over $1000 each! You wont need to be selling many of those each year to pay the bills!
5. Earn ClickFunnels Affiliate Commission
Earning money on the side is never a bad thing for entrepreneurs.
I’ve seen a lot of bloggers as of late take advantage of ClickFunnels’ affiliate program.
Here’s the deal:
ClickFunnels will pay you for every paid membership that comes from you.
So if anyone uses your affiliate link to sign up, you’ll get 40% of whatever they paid.
