What Is A Click….Funnel?

You want visitors on your website to take certain actions, right? Maybe you want them to read your article, sign up for your newsletter, pack a purchase, or leave a comment.  When someone does something you want them to do, it’s known as a conversion. The visitor converts from reading and browsing to taking the action you want them to take.

A funnel is the set of steps a visitor needs to go through before they can reach the conversion. In other words, a funnel is basically a series of pages your visitors go through to reach a specific goal.

A “clickfunnel” is nothing really, but when someone “clicks” into your “funnel” the magic happens.

What Types Of Sales Funnels Can You Create With ClickFunnels?

Want to capture someone’s email address? A simple lead capture funnel might consist of 2 pages which collects a visitor’s email address and then sends them to a Thank you page when signing up.

Want to sell a video course? A video course funnel would consist of 3 pages which gives a sneak-peak of the course, then takes your prospect to your sales page, then an order form to make a purchase.

Want to offer someone a coaching call? An easy coaching funnel would consist of 2 pages. The first page would be asking a few questions, then the next page would have them schedule a call.

You get the idea? Funnels are fun, right? Here’s a quick video I shot for you, explaining the various types of sales funnels you can make with ClickFunnels.

With ClickFunnels you can easily create:

  • Optin/Lead Capture Funnels – Used to capture email addresses of your visitors and grow your mailing list.
  • Sales Page Funnels – Create this to sell products and services, with the ability to add any upsells/downsells to your sales process.
  • Webinar Funnels – Useful for helping people register for your webinars.

Using ClickFunnels For Your Blog – Cons

  • Comparatively expensive, especially the Etison plan; however, I was able to immediately make back my $97/month investment with my first sales funnel.
  • Limits on the number of funnels, pages and visitors with the standard plan, although 100 pages and 20 funnels is plenty unless you start building funnels as a service
  • Can be overwhelming at first as you learn the ins and out, but if you keep things simple and take action, you’ll do fine

How To Start Using ClickFunnels To Monetize Your Blog

I bet you’re wondering how many videos I can squeeze inside a review of ClickFunnels, huh? Well here’s the last video for this article to show you how I monetize my blogs with ClickFunnels:

The ClickFunnels Affiliate Program

One of the fastest ways I’ve been able to monetize my blog (this blog actually) has been through the ClickFunnels affiliate program.

Here are my latest statistics with the affiliate program:

ClickFunnels gives you 40% of every sale you make through their platform AND it’s recurring monthly if someone is one the $97 or $297 per month options.

So, respectively, that’s $38.80 or $118.80 per month in YOUR pocket.

On top of that, once you refer 100 active ClickFunnels referrals under your link, they’ll send you an extra $500/month. Refer 200, you’ll get an extra $1000/month.

And all of that is on TOP of the commissions you’re already generating.

Personally, I’m at 60 active referrals, which brings me to about $3,500/month of recurring revenue. So, once I get 40 more, I’ll be making $5000/month PLUS an extra $500.

They call it the What’s Your Dream Car Program and you don’t even need to have to ClickFunnels account to join (although I recommend you get one).

  1. Hi nick, I’ve been looking at clickfunnels for about 6 months now. I was going to buy direct but I’m interested in yr blogging side of things too. I have several products I want to do but at the moment all I have ready is a detox programme PDF and I want to upsell some network marketing products to go with it. I’m just worried I’ll get lost in the process. I also have affiliate links to some video product reviews so very similar to what you explained on yr upgraded health page. Are you available to 1:1 chat to if I need help if I sign up through you? Otherwise my other option I’m considering is funnel university.

    1. Hi Stacey! Great to hear you’ve been looking into ClickFunnels. I would LOVE to hop on the phone with you and help guide you through the process while you navigate ClickFunnels. Email me at nick@bloggingwithfunnels.com and let’s set something up.

  2. Hi Nick,

    I recently came across clickfunnels and stumbled onto your blog. I would like to set up a mind set and life coaching business as well as a study abroad consultancy for international students and a “How to travel and live abroad” consultancy. All of which I have a wealth of experience in and would like to monetize. I have lots of ideas, if it is what I hope it is then clickfunnels could be the answer to it all.

    My apprehension is that I might be overwhelmed by the techinical side of starting up hence why your deal sounds great. Are you still offering the package if we start the 14 day trail via your page?
