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.
When I first wrote this article in 2011, I mentioned how the marketing copy for Crazy Egg’s heat-mapping feature could have been stronger by better explaining how the tool helps customers to increase conversions. While this information is clearer now thanks to the detailed visuals and simple copy layout that allows the reader to skim and scan — it could be better by explaining a bit more.
Webflow, a design tool for web developers, packs a lot of information into just a GIF and three form fields. Having the entire sign-up form on a single line is a nice touch here -- not only does it make the page shorter, but filling out each box from left to right shows users how close they are to clicking the fourth blue button and getting started for free.
Like many of the other landing pages in this post, Shopify's trial landing page keeps it simple. The user-oriented headline is just a few words, for example, and the page relies on simple bullets, not paragraphs, to communicate the trial's details and benefits. There are only a few fields you need to fill out before you get started. All of this makes it easier for you to get to the point: selling online with their tool.
If a sales opportunity does not move down the funnel, the sale will not happen and the opportunity should be removed, hence the “leaky” funnel. A leaky funnel is not necessarily bad; as a salesperson, you want to focus on opportunities that are likely to yield results. It is the nature of sales to have to remove an opportunity from your funnel. It does not mean that you will not sell to that account (a positive action by the customer can put them back into the funnel), but for the time being, you should centre your attention on opportunities that remain in the funnel.
The standard (basic) Clickfunnels plan includes 20 funnels, 100 landing pages, and 20,000 visitors per month. This plan costs $97 per month and no long term contracts are required. The advanced package (Etison Suite) includes unlimited funnels, unlimited landing pages, and unlimited visitors per month. This plan costs $297 per month and no long term contracts are required. To see my own personal review of the various features offered and how I’ve used them in my business, go to: https://funnelpricing.com/clickfunnels-pricing-info to see more!
Did You Start Out On The $97 Standard Package? Did it Work For You? - While results obviously will vary, yes I did start out with a 14 day free ClickFunnels trial and then became a $97 / month customer on the standard package. At the time, I knew I wouldn't use more than the 20 funnels available and I was better off by focusing on doing less than trying to do it all. So I went with the Standard Pricing Plan and the cost was manageable for me early in my business. I made it back quickly and never looked back. I can't recommend the trial enough because you can "test drive" the system before being billed. It's a no-brainer if you're thinking of trying Click Funnels.

Funnel Hacks is for the serious marketer who wants to get the latest and best training available, along with a 6 month free Etison (the highest level) membership. If you investigate Click Funnels like I did before you buy, you will find that a $1673 discount than if you enter Click Funnels in the traditional manner and purchase the upsells that are included with this package.
One thing to consider is that the Etison package ($297 per month) includes Clickfunnels “Actionetics.” This is Clickfunnels CRM/email marketing tool that provides the ability to interact with leads from the dashboard. In this case, you would not need a 3rd party email provider (such as Mailchimp). So while Etison costs more, you actually wouldn’t need other 3rd party tools because they are included in the Etison pricing package.
As mentioned above, Funnel Hacks is for the SERIOUS marketer who either wants to increase the profits of their online business or is serious about learning how to build a business online the right way, the first time. If you have already been building a business online, you can learn what you have been doing right and what you have been doing wrong.
The American Health Care Act (AHCA) as amended delivers relief from Obamacare’s taxes and mandates that have hurt job creators, increased premiums, and limited options for patients and health care providers. It returns control of health care from Washington back to the states and restores the free market so Americans can access quality, affordable health care options that are tailored to their needs.
If you are pretty confident you will become a ClickFunnels customer after a free trial, I recommend signing up and using this Click Funnels pricing "trick" to save money. On the Standard Package, you can save almost $200 over the year. On the Etison Suite Package, you can save over $500 over the year. I made this quick video explainer because after my first year on ClickFunnels, I wish I would have done this! Check it out...
Much of this is steeped in buyer psychology. The best marketers in the world know that there is a psychological process that must occur for prospects to whip out those credit cards and turn into buyers or even hyper-active buyers. One such person whose perfected this process is Russell Brunson, an "underground entrepreneur" who founded a company called ClickFunnels, a sales funnel SaaS business that empowers marketers from around the world to build marketing automation without all the hassle.
The messaging on the page reinforces the reason for their click, reducing or removing confusion and therefore increasing conversion rates. This improves overall user experience and reduces the bounce rate (individuals leaving the site without converting or navigating to another portion of the site) for the page. Good message matching can increase conversion by up to 50% in many cases.
For example, when a customer finds you organically through a Google search for example, that means you have some element of authority. When you have authority, prospects are more likely to enter into your funnel because they know that if they found you relevantly, that whatever it is that you're providing must be of a great value. That's just the nature of SEO and organic search.
⚠️ WE NEED YOUR HELP ⚠️ Human trafficking is a subject that NO ONE wants to talk about and most people avoid even THINKING about it. It is truly the darkest part of humanity and something MUST be DONE to STOP IT. That’s where Operation Underground Railroad has stepped up with an incredible team of people who work tirelessly to rescue children from a life of slavery. ⠀ We’ve had the opportunity to partner with O.U.R, and through our collaboration comes a documentary titled “Operation Toussaint” which was created to help spread the word and bring awareness of this harsh reality. It’s a film that follows the journey of former government agent Tim Ballard , who left everything he’d built to rescue kids and shed light in the darkest corners of the world. ⠀ Shortly after we premiered “Operation Toussaint” this year at Funnel Hacking Live we were able to raise over one million dollars for O.U.R, which has helped save over 400 children from sex slavery - but we want to do more! People have asked how they can help, it’s easy! Visit to learn more. ⠀ Check out the full trailer, reserve your seat, and SHARE THE LINK EVERYWHERE for the LIVE premier TONIGHT at 7pm MST. Let’s use this platform to make a difference! Join us in saving children from a life of slavery. 🌍🤲 #EndHumanTrafficking #OURrescue #SaveALife #Leadership #OURfilm #OperationToussaint #clickfunnels #russellbrunson #funnelhacker
