Have you been thinking about building some of the highest converting sales funnels?

Do you want to capture leads and build membership sites?

These are some of the stuff that Clickfunnels allow you to do. So in this Clickfunnels Review I will be explaining everything that takes place inside of the software. 

I am literally going to remove all the guess work for you..

Its like your on the outside looking in !!.

Ready? Ok lets go.

What is Clickfunnels?

What is clickfunnels

Now what is Clickfunnels ?

Well my guess is that you probably know what Clickfunnels is. But anyway…

Clickfunnel is a sales funnel builder and market automation SAAS (Software as a Service).

Owner: Russell Brunson (Author of DotCom Secrets Book)

Clickfunnels gives you the ability to create a sales funnels within less than 10 minutes.

Yes..!!

You can build a sales funnel such as a squeeze page in under 10 minutes. With the ability to use one of Clickfunnels template, you can simply select a prebuilt funnel and edit it to fit your business in less than 10 minutes.

Clickfunnels has made marketing easy for the non tech persons out there.

You literally need zero tech knowledge to use Clickfunnels.

Clickfunnels is has made building a funnel so easy with their mobile responsive drag and drop page builder software.

This allows you to build mobile responsive sales funnels.

Sales Funnel…

What is a sales funnel?

What is a sales funnel

This is a bit complicated to explain. But think of a sales funnel as the best salesperson working for you 365-24/7 without asking for a pay raise..

For example: You own a store, Someone comes into your store, Say for example your store sells women shoes.

Cool…

Now there will be a sales person working at your store that will approach that person that enters your store.

The first question the sales person might ask is

How can I help you today?”

And ofcourse the prospect will say they are looking for ‘women shoes’ but better yet the best and most comfortable women shoes.

Now, what do you think the salesperson is going to do after hearing this?

The sales person will take the prospect to the section of the store with the type of women shoes that they are looking for and the salesperson will also give recommendation for what choice the prospect should choose and also why that will the best choice.

Then after finding the best and most comfortable women shoes for the prospect for the prospect.

They will now upsell that Prospect which is now a customer on something else that will be complimentary for the shoes. Maybe a dress or anything that might be in the interest of the customer.

Now that’s what a sales funnel is..

A sales funnel Convert visitors into cusomters.

How Does Clickfunnels Work?

Now let me give you a short tutorial on how Clickfunnels really works.

So there is 3 main features that comes with Clickfunnels.

  • Clickfunnels (funnel builder)
  • Backpack (Affiliate Platform)
  • Actionetics (Marketing Automation/autoresponder)

Which I will talk about in details later along with the pricing for each…

The way clickfunnel really works is that you basically use it to create Automated sales funnels which allows you to collect lead and sell products to potential customer.

You are also able to A/B split test your funnels add OTO (one time offer) to your funnels also you are able to do order bumps in your funnels.

Almost anything that is associated with a sales funnel its available with clickfunnels.

You simply login to your account and start creating a sales funnel either by selecting a prebuilt template or you can build one from scratch..

The choice is yours.

Once you have the funnel fully set up you can simply purchase and host a domain through Clickfunnels.

This is one of the #1 feature I see Clickfunnel has that no other landing page or sales funnel builder software has out there..

You can literally register and host a domain from inside of Clickfunnels and just simply add your funnel to that domain..

Clickfunnels gives you a free domain with hosting of your choice for 1 year once you sign up.

For other landing page and sales funnel builder you would have to purchase a domain at godaddy or namecheap or some other domain provider and then forward that domain to Clickfunnels..

Ok, let’s stop there for a moment !!!

Isn’t this too much tech stuff for you to do?

Instead, you could just sign up for Clickfunnels and get all this done in less than 2 minutes and have your funnel live ready to drive traffic to it.

Clickfunnels Pricing

Ok so now you know all this awesome stuff that Clickfunnels allow you to do?

Don’t you want to know what it really cost?

Ok let’s talk about Clickfunnels Cost..

Ok so there is 2 main pricing plan for Clickfunnels.

Well technically there is 3. But we will talk about the 3rd one later..

So you have the $97 monthly plan which is the base Plan.

This gives you access to only the landing page and sales funnel builder.

Excluding Actionetics and backpack

The Clickfunnels base plan has a limit of 20 funnels in total. 100 pages and 20,000 visitors per month.

This plan is what you need if you just want to be able to build high converting sales funnels. And start capturing leads and making sales online.

The next plan Clickfunnels offer is the Etison Suite Plan which is for $297.

ClickFunels Etison Suite Plan

With this plan you get to stop using your autoresponder software such as

  • Aweber
  • Convertkit
  • Get response
  • Infusionsoft

Yes you will be able to automate almost anything with Actionetics.

You also get access to BackPack. (More details later)

This will allow you to setup an affiliate program with just the push of a few buttons.

You will be able to have affiliates promoting your products by just simply setting up an affiliate program and setting commision rates etc.

You are able to stop using tools like

  • Has offers
  • LeadDyno etc.

With this $297 plan you will be able to run your business online fully on automation without the need of other softwares..

This plan is all you need of you are thinking about getting your business from an unknown to a 6 or 7 figure business in no time.

Also as i mentioned that there is 3 plans that Clickfunnels offer.. The third one is where you sign up for Clickfunnels through a shared funnel link.

So for example someone share their funnel with you.

Once you click the link you will be taken to a sign up page where you will have the option to choose the $19 monthly plan.

This plan has a few flaws tho..

You can only have a total of 3 funnels on this plan and 10 pages..

Clickfunnels Actionetics

Actionetics Clickfunnels

What about we talk a bit more about the Actionetics feature since this is a feature that you only get if you sign up under the Etison Suite plan..

Clickfunnels Actionetics

Actionetics is basically an Autoresponder and an automation software build inside of Clickfunnels.

So under the “subscribers” section on Actionetics this basically tells you everything you need to know about your subscribers that opt-in to your funnel.

It tells you how many followers they have on social media (if the email is connected to a social media account )

You can also see what that person has bought from you in your funnel.

How often they buy and how recent.

Also, you get to see what pages inside of your funnel that subscriber has visit.

And so much more.

You are also able to set up automation in Actionetics to communicate with specific persons base on the actions they have taken inside of your funnel.

This allows you to personalize more with your customers

This way you are also able to avoid sending everybody that enters your funnel the same message.

With Actionetics you are able to do so much that you will not able to do with other automation software.

Clickfunnels Backpack

Backpack clickfunnels

Backpack is the next piece of Clickfunnels software that gives you the ability to setup affiliate programs inside of Clickfunnels..

In no time you can have a full affiliate program for specific funnels inside of your Clickfunnels account which you can have affiliates start promoting your product or courses or whatever you sell inside of your sales funnel..

Backpack also gives you the ability to see the top affiliates that are promoting your product and also the amount of money they are earning.

Everything you need to have a fully functional affiliate program Backpack has it.

ClickFunnels Backpack

The next question is?

Can Clickfunnels Replace Your Website?

This is a question that many persons ask when considering to get Clickfunnels or any other sales funnel builder.

Well the answer is ?

You might still need a website.

Because you might want to have a blog to give people some value into entering your sales funnel.

Also having a blog gives you the ability to get free traffic from google so why not have a website?

Even Clickfunnels has a blog. Why wouldn’t you?

ClickFunnels Pros And Cons

  • Provides hosting for your Domain.
  • Quickly build sales funnels that convert!
  • Has the ability to share funnel with anyone.
  • Great Customer Support.

  • No 24/7 Chat support.

Clickfunnels Alternative

There are other landing page and sales funnel softwares out there that you can use instead of clickfunnels.

But there are a few stuff that you will not be able to do with these other softwares that you are able to do with Clickfunnels.

So what are some of the alternatives of Clickfunnels.

I will be writing some reviews comparing clickfunnels with some of these alternatives but for now I am going to be giving you a basic comparison of a few alternatives.

Clickfunnels VS Leadpages

As the name suggest “leadpages”.

Leadpages is a Landing page builder and Lead Gen software similar to Clickfunnels.

Leadpages is mostly for persons that are looking to collect leads from Squeeze pages and also create high converting Landing pages.

On the other hand clickfunnels allows you to add order forms and shopping carts to your funnel..This gives you the ability to also do things like 1 click upsells, Downsells, Order Bumps and OTO’S etc..  

Leadpages has cheaper price plan. But they also have plans has expensive as $321 monthly.

Leadpages Vs Clickfunnels

Similar to Clickfunnels Leadpages also provides you with pre built templates to work from. You are also able to integrate with some of the most popular marketing software inside of Leadpages.

There is one feature that leadpages has that clickfunnels dont have at this current moment..

You are able to create Facebook Ads without leaving Leadpages and going to FaceBook.. “
You are able to Build Track and Tweek you Facebook ads right inside of leadpages.

Isn’t that cool? 

Clickfunnels VS Infusionsoft

The difference between Clickfunnels and Infusionsoft is that Infusionsoft is more of a CRM software more of what you would get using Actionetics in Clickfunnels.

Infusionsoft is a client management software built specifically to help small business owners get work done, more efficiently,.

It allows you to communicate with your clients on a more personal and efficient manner under one dashboard.
The pricing of Infusionsoft starts at $99 monthly.

Now seeing all this comparison you might still have another common question if you are going to choose Clickfunnels..

And that is.

Is Clickfunnel Worth It?

Is Clickfunnels worth it?

Well, whatever business you are thinking about running online Clickfunnels has a funnel for that.

There are templates that are proven to convert inside of Clickfunnels for every business module you can think of.
All you need to do is select a funnel and edit the template to match your business.

You can collect payments inside of your funnels with Clickfunnels all you need to do is integrate with either Stripe or PayPal and you can start making money from your funnel.

Also if you are not so good when it comes on to tech stuff Clickfunnels is for you my friend because some of the tech stuff that you will be required to do with these other Sales funnel builder will give you nightmare.

The pricing for Clickfunnels might seems a bit expensive. 

Yes, i had the same thought too.

But after signing up for the 14 day trial of Clickfunnel and getting to see all the stuff that Clickfunnel allow you to do for just $97 monthly I was shocked…trust me..V

Clickfunnels Templates

There are multiple Templates inside of clickfunnels that you can choose as a frame work of building your sales funnel.

Most of these templates are proven to convert very well.

Its really easy to simply choose the template that you want and start customizing it to fit your business type as mentioned earlier.

Great review! I am just now looking into funnels and have considered setting something up with Clickfunnels, but I do not know other bloggers who are using it.

I understand that some of their templates look a bit dated. How many choices of templates are there? Is there a way to customize them?

    Floyd · December 27, 2018 at 2:13 pm

    There are at least 10 templates for each categories.. its over 60 templates or more i am not sure what the number is tho. yes you are also able to customize the templates. you can change whatever you want on the templates.

Chyke · December 26, 2018 at 10:11 pm

I am excited at this prospect of having a sales funnel. the idea of getting 100 affiliates and choosing a car of my choice haha… Anyway, the sales funnel is a bit pricey for me at this point so I’ll take a serious look at the affiliate program. Thanks.

    Floyd · December 27, 2018 at 2:15 pm

    yes you can sign up for the affiliate program without signing up for the software itself. I think the software is a bit pricey also but base on the ability to create a lot of high converting sales funnels i think it is well worth the price.

Justin · December 26, 2018 at 10:30 pm

Very informative post. I have been involved with affiliate marketing through creating a site for about a year now, but have never heard of this before. From what I gathered from the post, these programs are more for stores that sell actual products ? I enjoyed learning about how the system works and how it can help you. I don’t think I’m quite up to that level yet though. Thanks for the info.

    Floyd · December 27, 2018 at 2:17 pm

    Your welcome. Clickfunnels is also used to capture emails from squeeze pages..
    There are many different funnels for different reasons and business types not only for stores that sells stuff.

This looks like something that would be a great addition for me.  I am curious though.  I have a blog that focuses on beach travel.  I have yet to come up with products that I can see on my reviews of different beach locations.  This is where my dilemma is.  I don’t know what I can add that will help me generate sales.  Any ideas?

    Floyd · December 27, 2018 at 7:23 pm

    You can probable look for competing websites in your niche and see what they are doing to generate sales.. You can maybe create a sales funnels and add an online course teaching persons how to create websites in the beach travel niche that might be a good start.

Eric Cantu · December 27, 2018 at 7:25 pm

Nicely written review! I’ve liked the idea of ClickFunnels and it seems almost like a Done For You system. The only thing I’ve never been a huge fan of is the pricing. How much overall training does the ClickFunnels platform have with regards to actually building organic traffic and finding your target audience? Without traffic, there is no revenue. Thank you!

    Floyd · December 27, 2018 at 7:33 pm

    There is no training in the clickfunnels Platform regarding organic traffic but I am glad you bring that up I can add a section in my Clickfunnels review on that.. 
    how ever if you would like I can send you a link where you can sign up to my mentor training program where there are training about organic traffic from multiple different platform. 
    if you are interested you can check it out here,.

Very informative post. Clickfunnels sound like a one stop shopping for an affiliate marketer. I will consider the service. As for now I cannot afford to join the service just yet, but when I can I will give it a try. Do you use the Clicfunnels service as well? How long have you been using it?

Great review

Happy Holidays

    Floyd · December 27, 2018 at 7:38 pm

julienne murekatete · December 27, 2018 at 7:31 pm

thank you for sharing with us this great review on Clickfunnels. Building online business is not an easy work because of the competition we are facing these days.Using funnels is one way to boost online business but many of them are scams.

I am happy that you made a review on clickfunnels and I found it very helpful and most important is that it has free trial during a year.

I will try it and see what it can bring to my business.

    Floyd · December 27, 2018 at 7:36 pm

    Glad you love the article Thanks

Edwin IBU · December 27, 2018 at 7:44 pm

Clickfunnels was actually confusing to me, haven’t been able to figure it out. Gratefully the review explains it in-depth .

I like the automated and hands off approach of the  funnels. Another advantage is the adding of several offers to test their effectiveness. A free domain and hosting for a year when u sign up the clickfunnels? This is unbelievable! Also the affiliate program makes it attractive to Affiliate Marketers.

Though Leadpages ability to create and manage Ads on Facebook within their platform is a great feature that clickfunnels can improve on.

    Floyd · December 27, 2018 at 8:22 pm

    Yes you are able to get a free custom domain through Clickfunnels once you sign up for an account,
