When I first got to know about online marketing or digital marketing or whatever, the first thing that my ears heard over and over and over again was ClickFunnels. Almost every online coach that I met told be about this new thing and I was really finding it hard to understand what it was and a couple of things that you have in your mind right now.
Yes, I feel you.
That said, in this post, I’m going to cover questions like – what is ClickFunnels, ClickFunnels pricing, and more.
Basically, I’ll be doing an honest ClickFunnels review to let you know if it’s worth it for your business model, if yes, how exactly, some of my personal experiences as a ClickFunnels user.
Let’s dive right in.
What is ClickFunnels Exactly?
So, first things first – explained.
ClickFunnels is an amazing software that allows you to create landing pages and build sales funnels to acquire more customers and make business easier.
It’s a funnel builder software that replaces all the other software programs out there.
With this software, you don’t need to worry about the following things that suck all the blood out of the body in an online business:
1. No worries about hosting.
2. No worries about developers.
3. About downtime.
4. About email marketing.
5. About automation.
6. Server maintenance.
7. Getting hacked.
It has been very popular and helpful as well for a lot of online business out there on the planet.
Well, there are many other funnel building tools out there. Then why is ClickFunnels so popular?
The reason being is that it is the category king in the area of sales funnels and squeeze pages (landing pages). In other words, it is the most easy to use drag and drop builder with thousands of high converting templates and other resources.
I myself have tried a ton of different tools but when I used this tool, everything changed. I’d sit there for hours to create beautiful pages that never converted before I discovered the software.
They have processed over $4.3 billion by the time and the numbers are only going up. That’s kinda crazy, right?
You could literally go out there, make a landing page or funnel in minutes and have your business up and running to generate revenue for you.
Another reason why ClickFunnels rocks is the value that they provide along with user-friendly set-up. There are tons of free courses provided to you when you sign up as a new user to help you create a business (if you don’t have already), get it live in hours, run advertising campaigns the right way and start making money.
And when I say that, I’m not exaggerating it by any means. It’s the truth.
If you still don’t think it’s fantastic, I’ll share more eye-opening experiences with you further in this review.
What Is A Sales Funnel?
I’ll keep it short and simple, a sales funnel is a sales process of getting in front of people that’ll grow your business, impress them or spread awareness among them about what you sell, follow up with them, and finally turn them into a paying customer or a part of your business.
In other words, it is a journey from a customer seeing a product to eventually buying it.
Sales funnels are the backbone of marketing. Every company you might know from Apple to Amazon use sales funnels to acquire new customers.
It plays an important role in marketing and is necessary for every business on the planet – whether that being an affiliate marketing business, or a one of your own.
By the way, here’s Russell, who will explain the concept and motive of a sales funnel in a better way.
How Can ClickFunnels Help You?
If I talk about myself, I used ClickFunnels for the first time in the January of the previous year.
I was (and am) into affiliate marketing and that’s what for I utilized the tool. To promote an affiliate offer, I created a simple landing page that captured email addresses and then redirected users to a different page where they bought the product I was promoting and I ended up making commissions. Honestly, it was working really well.
But by the end of the year, I noticed that my conversions were getting lower and lower. Then is when I met my friend Peng Joon. He helped me with my situation and taught me how to build sales funnels with ClickFunnels to boost my conversions like no other.
Really? That’s amazing. Within a week or so, I noticed my conversions doubling up.
From there, I met new inspiring endeavors every single day.
Not only I made profit in my affiliate marketing business but also increased by digital marketing agency’s revenue by lending more qualified leads and clients.
Well, that’s how it helped me out.
But, what about you? How can it help YOU out?
So, let me start with this. Are you a realtor? Or an Agency owner? Or have a physical products business? Or a dropshipper? Or a consultant? A fitness trainer? Marketing expert? Car dealer? Digital product owner? An affiliate marketer? A freelancer? Or whatever…
ClickFunnels can help you make more business and reputation both.
Simple – by building extremely HIGH CONVERTING FUNNELS!
Right below is an example of a funnel template that has done over a millions dollars. Just have a look.
You know what?
You could have this same exact funnel transplanted into your account within a few clicks and as this funnel has a proven record to do over a million dollars, you will get some great real results as well.
This is just one funnel for one specific category. Down below is an another example of a realtor funnel that gets crazy leads.
All of these sales processes (funnels) that are killing it could be used by you in just a matter of clicks to make sales or collect leads in minutes.
Again – no matter what you are, where you are, what you do, and how you do, you’re just one funnel away from getting at the top of your life and business.
ClickFunnels Review - Features
So far so good.
Now, let me turn around and introduce you some features of ClickFunnels that it is known for.
1. Drag and drop page builder (very intuitive and easy to use)
2. Follow-up funnels
4. Major integrations
As this is just a review, I won’t be going deep into explaining the features but will cover a little bit of the snow here.
Starting with the first one, which is – the page builder.
So, this is the inside look of the page builder. You can watch the video that explains the page builder (in action) by all means.
I don’t think there’s much to teach about the page builder now.
It’s fully shown in the video above.
Thus, it’s worth turning the handle to the second (extremely vital) feature – the follow up funnels.
Again, an awesome video to help you out. Ha!
So, follow up funnels are simply GOLDMINES OF MONEY.
It’s because they get you the people that are already interested in you back and impress them to work with you on a higher level.
Before we jump into this, I’d like to share my story. Back in the day, I was there selling digital products like e-books and that cool stuff.
And, when my funnel was live, I was really making good chunks of money on the front end (at least I was think that), but for real, I wasn’t even breaking even (with a good difference).
Here’s a screenshot of the dashboard where the first five figure mark was hit in about three months.
But I quickly realized that there’s something wrong going on.
That’s the time I used follow up funnels for the first time.
And you know what happened…
Made my second $10,000 in 4 weeks.
What could be the reason behind follow up funnels converting so well?
The answer is TRUST.
I’m going to ask you a question…
Who do you think it’s worth it targeting between a group of people that know you and that don’t?
Of course, the ones that know you, right?
Well, that’s the game. Follow up funnels give you higher ROI by bringing people that worked with you back to you – OVER AND OVER AGAIN.
The next, we have the Backpack.
Backpack is one of the best features. My personal favorite.
It allows you to add an affiliate program of your own to your products and have other people send you traffic under a partnership where you pay them certain commissions on sales or leads.
So, even if you think you don’t have the skills to get more traffic to your sales pages, you can literally have affiliates that promote your business. A win-win situation for both you and them.
Here’s another video giving you an introduction to the Backpack in ClickFunnels.
At last, we have the integrations.
What this actually means is that you can integrate your favorite tools within your ClickFunnels account.
Example would be some email marketing tools.
Nevertheless, here’s a video again.
List Of Popular Integrations
Can You Use SMTP?
Of course! If your integration is not listed, you are as free as a bird to use an SMTP service to send out your emails with the help of tools like Sendgrid or any other.
Using Your Own Autoresponder?
A short and sweet answer is yes. They allow loads of third party integrations so you need not to worry about it.
Wow, ClickFunnels Review for features has been done.
Now, let’s look at the pricing model.
ClickFunnels Review - Pricing
When it comes to pricing, there are two plans ClickFunnels offers – The Regular and Platinum.
The regular plan costs $97 per month whereas the Platinum plan costs $297 per month.
You can get a 14 day free trail on both plans to test and also, you’re free to upgrade or downgrade, or cancel you account.
So, in my opinion, if I compare the value and pricing, it’s super affordable and friendly pricing.
You can see the comparison carousal below that is showing the main differences..
Now, let’s look at each of the plan separately to understand everything in a better way.
The Regular (aka Basic) Plan
You know the pricing is $97 per month.
Let’s have a look that what exactly they offer you in this membership plan.
So, if you’re small business, then you should start out with the basic plan. Why?
It’s because there are some of the features that you don’t necessarily require in the Platinum plan. But hey! Just the features, not the training.
In this plan you can simply build funnels, create pages, create courses, memberships, and track your performance.
You don’t have access to the full training programs, the follow up funnels, and the Backpack.
That’s okay, but what I still don’t like about the plan is the limit of 20,000 visits. You can’t have over 20,000 visitors on the plan. If you exceed the number, you’ll need to upgrade to the Platinum which has unlimited visits.
It’s a part of their marketing strategy but I still don’t like it.
Hence, it’s missing one of the most pivotal features by not including the follow up funnels.
To get your strategy working, you’ll need to integrate autoresponders such as AWeber.
Integrations are unlimited. So, on that side, it’s fair enough.
Also, you have access to share funnels in the basic plan too. What this means is that you can share your funnels with anyone you want. So, if you have multiple accounts for your company or business, your sales funnel can be transplanted into another account with a click of a button.
Also, you have access to both Funnel Hacker Forum (means you can connect with the Funnel Hacker team) and Funnel Flix (courses and training on everything).
That’s all the basic plan includes.
The Platinum Plan
The Platinum plan starts at $297 per month.
It includes all the features that the Basic plan has and more…
Also, you get to meet unlimited follow up funnels which replaces all other tools that you have involved in your marketing campaigns.
It’s the beast!
The next, you have additional training, unlimited visits, and courses in the Funnel Flix.
And at last, you do get Backpack that I’ve already talked about.
You can change your SEO title and metadata, and upload a favicon icon to make your funnels and pages compatible for search engines to address and show up nicely.
Responsiveness Of Designs
All the templates and funnels are optimized both for mobile and desktop so there’s no tension regarding user experience.
Your funnels and pages will look good on mobiles as well and continue getting results.
Just chill out.
Does The Tool Have A/B Testing?
Yes, you A/B testing feature is standard on all the plans. You can create two pages on the same thing or offer and compare both of their performances to figure out what is working best for you.
The feature is officially known as Split Test.
You can watch the feature in action right below.
ClickFunnels Review For Support
Although there is everything you need to get started, I personally feel like that the support is a bit slow.
When I got started and had doubts and issues, I was kept on the waiting line before someone look into my issue and tried to solve it.
No, it doesn’t take ages to respond, but paying $97 a month and not getting live chat support which nowadays companies like GetResponse is giving, is not up to the mark.
Yes, if you have the Platinum plan, everything is smooth but you can expect a slow support if you’re on the regular plan.
That’s actually not nice.
They should work on it and initiate priority support to regular accounts as well. Otherwise, everything works like charm.
Is ClickFunnels For You?
As such ClickFunnels is for everybody, but if you are just looking to create some lead capture pages and don’t have a physical or digital product(s) to sell, you should not get your feet wet in the ClickFunnels stream.
Before you have anything to sell, you should use some other (cheap) tools like AWeber (which I mentioned above).
Though you can use it IF YOU ARE AN AFFILIATE. It works really well for affiliate marketing.
My request to you is that don’t just sign up for ClickFunnels just because your friends use it. Unless you don’t know what you will be using it for, don’t use it. Find some other alternative.
ClickFunnels And Ecommerce?
Yes, don’t worry. ClickFunnels can be (actually it is) used for Ecommerce to make more products sales.
People that I know are getting impacting results in the Ecommerce space with sales funnels built using the software.
The reason why people are succeeding in selling more physical products is no distractions. Yep! That’s it.
Well, if you didn’t understand, what I actually mean is that a funnel doesn’t have various irrelevant products and buttons sitting on it. It’s clear and straight to the point. And when that’s the case, people don’t get distracted by something else, and keep getting engrossed in checking out the product information and finally buying it.
ClickFunnels also supports various Ecommerce integrations that you can use.
And what’s even better is the ultimate Ecommerce course that is about to be live.
This shows that the tool can greatly work for Ecommerce too!
What Are Two Coma Club Awards?
The ‘Two Coma Club’ is an award given to entrepreneurs that make over a million dollars inside the ClickFunnels community.
Basically ‘Two Coma’ means you have at least two comas in your paycheck.
Here’s how: 1,000,000
There’s other award as well – The Two Coma Club ‘C’ Award.
This is given to people who make at least five million dollars inside the community.
Is ClickFunnels Overrated?
The answer to this question is a BIG NO.
I’ll explain why exactly it’s so freaking popular and every marketer knows about it.
It’s because of the events.
Russell Brunson – who is the CEO of ClickFunnels is a machine. He’s super energetic and has impressive talent to make relationships with people. He organizes big events every now and then.
In every event, he introduces ClickFunnels to people who don’t know and this works in a chain that’s never ending.
Another reason is the affiliate program. As ClickFunnels has great affiliate program that pays up to 40% recurring commission, marketers love promoting the company for the better.
And the final reason is the awards.
There are several awards rewarded to people when they hit over a million dollars via their sales funnels. I’ll talk about the awards later in the post. These awards inspire and motivate people like you and I to take action and kill it.
Concluding the stanza, I’d say that it’s not overrated, it very famous because of strategic and sustainable marketing, and value.
How Is ClickFunnels Community?
This is what I love the most about ClickFunnels. They have a beautiful and active community that will help you out in any way you want.
Everyone seems to have a different kind of energy to change the world and live a better life.
There are various groups where you can expect answer to your questions in minutes.
They do have massive following on LinkedIn, Twitter, and Instagram as well.
Is ClickFunnels Really Legit?
If you still have a doubt about ClickFunnels, I don’t know what will convince you. But one thing is clear, with names like Gary Vaynerchuk, Tony Robbins, Prince Ea, Peng Joon, David Sharpe, and Grant Cardone supporting Russell Brunson and the ClickFunnels Community, and also, with over six million funnels already built, the company proves to be the best in the entire space of internet marketing.
Is There Any Better Alternative?
For sure, there are alternatives but in my experience, they’re not better than what this marketing software is. The community, the ease of use, the training, and environment – is not available anywhere else.
Listen, if you want to succeed with your business and make it scalable and sustainable, you need to be around people who are already doing it.
After all, you know that if you want to go fast, you go alone, but if you want to go far, go together.
That’s what ClickFunnels is all about. They think of the future – not only of themselves as a company, but also of their customers.
ClickFunnels Review - Final Verdict
Woah, it was fabulous sharing my experience with you. I respect that you’re on my blog reading my content.
So, my final opinions on ClickFunnels are straight – it’s the best tool to start an online business and make profit off of it.
Even physical businesses like Gyms, doctors, dentists, restaurants, and shops can take advantage of this software.
There’s massive value on the table but at the same time, there are some issues with the pricing that people have (that it’s a bit expensive). That’s subjective.
But if you ask me – IT’S VERY AFFORDABLE.
People who say ClickFunnels is expensive haven’t probably used it and if they did, it would not have been done the right way.
If you do it the right way, there’s no body who can stop you from using ClickFunnels for lifetime.
In one sentence, you should give it a try and see what happens. It’s amazing.
To end this review, I would love to give it a score of 9.2 out of 10 and recommend to everyone who’s looking to start a business or grow a business in any niche or industry.
It’s really worth trying.
