Today I’m going to review ClickFunnels. After being a marketer, nerd, teacher and blogger for a long time, I’ve never seen such a buzzworthy app. Most notably about ClickFunnels is how ridiculously popular it’s been since launching just a few years ago. Is it worth the hype and ballyhoo? This review shall reveal all!
ClickFunnels is a cloud based software that will allow you to build lead capture pages, sales pages, video sales letters, webinar funnels, and other marketing pages.
ClickFunnels also allows you to build password protected membership websites, which can be perfect for online courses or information product downloads.
The thing I like most about ClickFunnels is that there are a ton of templates for each type of funnel, and the templates themselves are super easy to customize using the “drag and drop” editor that’s 100% cloud based.
All in all, ClickFunnels creates beautiful marketing pages, so you can generate leads and promote your business, without being a tech nerd and even if you totally hate this kind of “technobabble” stuff.
How Much Does ClickFunnels Cost?
ClickFunnels has two plans. You can try either of the plans free for 7 full days, so you can see if you like the ClickFunnels software before you pay anything.
The first ClickFunnels plan costs roughly $97 per month. This $97 per month plan will enable you to build 20 sales funnels, 100 marketing pages, and you can get up to 20,000 (twenty thousand) website visitors using this plan.
This plan is ideal for you if you’re just getting started with your business, and maybe you don’t want to exceed 20 sales funnels, or 20,000 visitors. As a long time entrepreneur, I can tell you that 20,000 visitors is a LOT and most startups probably won’t need to go beyond that.
For that reason, I would recommend that most startups try the $97 startup plan first, unless of course you need more than 20,000 visitors per month. If that’s the case, then you’re not really a startup and are more of a heavy hitting entrepreneur.
If you feel like you want more than 20 sales funnels, and if you want your hosting to go more than 20,000 visitors per month, then the ClickFunnels $297 plan might be more your size.
The $297 plan allows you to exceed the 20 sales funnel limitation, and also allows you to go beyond 20,000 website visitors per month; you can actually have unlimited website visitors, and unlimited funnels, which is quite generous. (Other unlimited web hosts can cost a fortune).
The $297 plan also gives you access to actionetics, which is a seriously in-depth email, and text-based marketing autoresponder. If you want to get super targeted and advanced with your email marketing, then you’ll love actionetics.
The $297 plan also includes Backpack, which is a built-in affiliate program. This way, you can recruit and manage affiliates to promote your products right under the ClickFunnels umbrella, which is quite cool and handy.
A Closer Look Into Some Of The ClickFunnels Features:
There are so many ClickFunnels features, to be honest; it’s designed to be an “all in one” marketing platform, and it’s quite successful in that goal.
The main features that are most important are the drag and drop funnel creator.
You can create amazingly beautiful marketing funnels, including opt-in funnels, lead capture page funnels, webinar marketing funnels, book launch funnels, product launch funnels, membership funnels, e-commerce funnels, high ticket funnels, and more.
Each funnel has its own suite of unique designs to choose from, and each design itself is individually simple to modify and customize to match your own brand.
ClickFunnels also integrates with all of your favorite shopping carts, email autoresponders, and also Zapier, so if you have a third party service that you use in your business, you can be confident that you’ll be able to integrate without any fuss.
Actionetics and Backback are two tremendously powerful features in their own right. You can launch your own affiliate program, and manage advanced email (and text) automation all within the ClickFunnels software, so if you want to manage everything with one cloud based software then it’s easy to accomplish.
There’s also tons of support and training from ClickFunnels, so if you want help, or if you want to learn more about lead generation, sales, or marketing, they’ve got your back.
Imagine if you didn’t need a landing page builder, email marketing software, an affiliate program tool, a webinar marketing software, a web host, or any expensive copywriters.
That’s the value that ClickFunnels delivers; it brings several services under one roof. And it makes your business look good because all of the ClickFunnels templates can be deployed quickly and easily without you having to be a graphic designer.
The true value of ClickFunnels is that it’s the only ONE software you need to run your business.
You can generate leads, automatically followup with your leads, close sales, and host all of your marketing pages from the cloud, using nothing but ClickFunnels.
ClickFunnels has some of the best marketing training around, Q&A webinars, and you can sell and deliver all of your products without juggling between different browser windows (lol).
If you’re serious about your business, and if you want to launch beautiful marketing funnels without hiring an army of marketers and tech nerds, then ClickFunnels gets a 10 out of 10 for value.
ClickFunnels Is NOT For You If:
- If you’re not an entrepreneur, and if you don’t have anything to sell online, then you don’t really need ClickFunnels.
- If you’re good with computer science and are technically savvy enough to hand-code all of your marketing funnels, membership pages and order forms on your own, then you don’t need ClickFunnels.
- If your business is already setup to run smart marketing funnels, webinar campaigns, membership websites, and sales pages, and if you’re happy with how it’s going, then you don’t need ClickFunnels.
ClickFunnels IS For You If:
- If you’re frustrated because your current marketing creatives aren’t good looking, or if you’re sick of paying thousands for graphic designers, copywriters, and programmers, then ClickFunnels is ideal.
- If you don’t know how to code, but still want to get beautiful looking marketing funnels up and running without banging your fists on your keyboard in frustration, then ClickFunnels is totally recommended.
- If you don’t have a web presence, or if you have a web presence but it’s not optimized to generate leads, make sales, or deliver your products, then ClickFunnels is totally worth checking out.
My Closing Thoughts Regarding ClickFunnels:
I personally love ClickFunnels, and after reviewing it I realize the true power of simplicity.
Gone are the days of having to be a computer science guru to launch a simple landing page, let alone a sleek looking marketing funnel designed for optimization from top to bottom.
ClickFunnels will allow you to launch an entire marketing campaign with a single click, and then you can customize that funnel without much effort, and you can even split test your entire campaign even if you suck at tech stuff (lol).
The team at ClickFunnels know marketing better than most, so you can be confident that they’re ready to go templates are sleek, are optimized, and you’ll be happy with how your pages look, and convert.
If you’re ever stuck, or need support, then ClickFunnels has a huge boatload of training that you can check out, and their tech support is always happy to answer your questions.
If you want to launch your products, deliver your products, or sell your products, then ClickFunnels is awesome and they get my approval, without question.
You can give them a try for 7 full weeks, and I’m sure if you give them a whirl you’ll fall in love with their ease of use.
