Qualified prospect: Qualification is the most critical and demanding stage of the sales funnel. In the qualification process, you verify that the prospect has a need for your product, that the prospect sees value in your offering, that there is sufficient budget for a deal, that you have access to the decision-maker, and that there is an agreed-upon timeline for the sales process. The qualification process can be complex and lengthy, and can be managed with a Sales Call Talk Track and stakeholder management chart.
My Multi-Million Dollar Business (That Started from a $97 Click Funnels Cost!) - No, that's not a misprint. I built a $2m+ biz on ClickFunnels in my first year of business. Pretty insane. I'm a down to earth, average Joe. Yep, I'm literally one of those guys saying "I used to work in corporate, but I ditched my job and made a million dollars using Click Funnels!" (no seriously, it really really really happened). I'm still in shock...but not really because it all makes sense once you know how ClickFunnels works.
There are email warming sequences that include things like personalized value-driven stories, tutorials and even soft pushes to webinars, and of course product suggestions that happen over days or even weeks. The truth is that most prospects won't buy from your website at first glance, especially if they're only just becoming aware of you today. It takes time. Thus, the funnel is a multi-modality process, as there are a variety of relationship-building experiences and "touches" that occur through several stages.
However, what Brunson cleverly conceived with ClickFunnels is to create a SaaS that can integrate with the world's most popular platforms and virtually anyone can quietly launch a funnel in hours as opposed to weeks of hefty coding and programming. As a fervent user of ClickFunnels myself, I can tell you that the system is impressive beyond measure.
