I am first person to admit that a good sales funnel gets me just about every time (I have to be careful). If you would have asked me 2 years ago “what are clickfunnels?” ….I would have given you a blank stare.
I am here to give you a little more insight on what the website builder clickfunnels is for.

What is clickfunnels for
The internet is the quickly becoming the best place to offer or sale your products. However, that is easier said than done.
I spent MONTHs wondering which type of platform or software would help me build a website or a sales page.
I am not a programmer and quite frankly don’t want to be. So, the problem with that is I want to find something that does all the heavy lifting for me.
Software like clickfunnels do exactly that….all the heavy lifting.
A sales funnel software helps you create and build your own sale funnel or even your very own website.
I decided that I wanted to try and build a landing page for one of my online store using this the software. (You can see it here if you would like)
So for being someone with no programming skills and really no design skills at all. Using software that somebody else invest a fortune in to build is a no brainer to me.
Here are some advantages to using a software like Clickfunnels to build your website
- No programming required.
- No design experience required
- Don’t have to pay a programmer or a web designer
- Support to help you when you get stuck
- They usually offer integrations with cool tools (like an email autoresponder)
- The ability to easily change and modify your site
- Don’t have to reach out to a programmer or web designer to change something
- Build a sales funnel that is used with your PPC marketing strategy
This list could go on and on but there for a regular Joe like me THIS saves me so much time and money.
Are there some downsides of using a sales funnel software like clickfunnels?
Absolutely, you will have to spend the time and effort to learn the software and how it works. When I first started using it I spend a TON of time with support.
I think the biggest downsides (if they really are downsides) are the following
- It COSTS MONEY to use clickfunnels
- ClickFunnels is a subscription based software (Monthly payments)
- Using the software requires your own personal time to build the funnel or website (You can find people to build you a funnel using clickfunnels)
- I am sure there are some limitations for those who need a CRAZY website
I really have been trying to think of the downsides but to be completely honest the times when I tried to build my own website as cheaply as possible the end result was a shitty design that loaded WAY to slow…
I never really had the capital to invest in someone that I knew what was going on. However, I have friends and family that have and let me tell you it’s NOT CHEAP.
It typically costs $3000 – $15000 to build a custom word press websites.
Building sales funnels
If you are like me and didn’t want the headache or don’t have a bunch of money lying around to spend on a sexy website or funnel I went ahead and tried out clickfunnels.
My experience resulted with me burning a few hours modifying the few samples that they provided.
I would change everything that I could.
Add my own pictures.
Get stuck, use support.
Geek out on how easy it was to build something that so quickly.
What? You can A/B test things and it will create it for you.
Wait, you can integrate your email auto responder…..
You can quickly add your own domain
Yes, Stripe is easy to setup with ClickFunnels
Honestly, take from me I have spent countless hours using other website building platforms (Some paid some free) and so far ClickFunnels had me geeking out the most.
Some, of the other platforms were good but I never geeked out over them.
The sales funnels, websites, business opps ideas were overflowing when I first started using Clickfunnels (Currently working a one)
You can use clickfunnels to build your own website, webinar, sales funnel, and even your own community.
What is a sales funnel
Sales funnels can be also referred to your sales process. It’s the process of generating sales or even leads for future sales. There is multiple steps to a sales funnel and this process is used to take your potential customer where you want them to end up.
Here are some simple steps
- Create awareness of you or your product / Prospects
- Create Interest in what you are offering / Inquires
- Be there to help them get to a decision / Proposal or sale
- Action is the last step / New customer
Why you should use software to build sales funnels
Software really does make this sales process much easier. Why? Software never stops working and can be “online” all day every day. Sales funnel software is being used in EVERY demographic known in the world wide web.
You can track, split test, and modify your sales process easily when using clickfunnels
This is increasing every single day and if you have a product or business that has multiple offerings and is not actively using clickfunnels is leaving thousand of dollars on the table.
Hell, Clickfunnel’s has a club they call 2 Comma Club and its chalk full of people that made 1 million dollars or more.
These people have made over a million dollars of ONE FUNNEL – insane right?
Is Clickfunnels right for you? That is a question you have to answer for yourself. But you have value your TIME and MONEY the you need consider this
