Here's My Click Funnels Honest Review - 2018

Published on 6/26/2018
For additional information  Click Here

If you are in the Internet marketing space and you have not heard about Click Funnels, I would be a little surprised. ClickFunnels was founded in 2014 by Russel Brunson and has become a $ 360 million SaaS business. What's even more impressive is that it was totally self-financed.

 

Russel Brunson, the founder of ClickFunnels, is an experienced Internet marketer. He had a significant amount of online presence, and he really focused on selling his software from the start with webinars and a lot of email marketing. Fast forward to 2018 and is one of the fastest-growing landing page creators you can use to create landing pages and member groups.

If you want the short version of this review of more than 4,200 words, let me answer this question now in your mind. Would you recommend buying a ClickFunnels membership?

The answer is yes, absolutely, but only depending on your position in your online business.

WHAT IS CLICKFUNNELS AND WHAT DOES IT DO?


As I just mentioned, ClickFunnels is essentially a landing page generator with steroids. The biggest point of sale is that it is easy to use. It has some drawbacks, which I will discuss later, but overall it is an excellent tool that you can use to create landing pages, sales funnels with upsell / downsell functionality and even membership groups. It is full of prefabricated templates that you can customize as you see fit.

ClickFunnels integrates with Stripe, Paypal and other types of payment processors, making it extremely easy to integrate if you make online payments for your services. It also allows custom code to be inserted virtually anywhere on a given page, allowing you to actually customize your landing page and even provide other payment options such as PayPal for your customers. You can also provide different prices and pricing options for your customers, integrated into the landing pages.

ClickFunnels is a tool, like any other software. You can earn money online in many different ways, and Clickfunnels can help you achieve your goals, but ONLY if you do the work. ClickFunnels is not a get-rich-quick scheme: it is a tool that helps you reach your customers and sell more products. They even back their software with a free 14-day trial.

 

WHY NOT ONLY USE WORDPRESS?


WordPress and ClickFunnelsFirst, WordPress is amazing. If you are running a website strictly based on content, then WordPress should be your reference content management system, and there is no reason for you to work through ClickFunnels. If you are not selling something online or do not need a membership platform for any reason, simply stay with WordPress as your default CMS.

BUT - I think ClickFunnels has a full set of options for any specialized site creator, and you should consider it if you think you're going to start outsourcing some of your work. If you are running an Amazon FBA business, it may be worth having a subscription to ClickFunnels; especially if you run paid traffic to your products on your own e-commerce site.

For content-based niche websites, I've been able to set up a membership site for my contractors so they can log in and see what I expect from them when they work on my sites. It is a crucial part of my business. While I was able to set up a password protected page for them on my site if I chose, I personally like to have a separate site that provides easy-to-use instructions that cover ALL of my online properties, and not just a specific website.

If you sell any type of product, both physical and digital (software, membership site, etc.), then I think that ClickFunnels is worth taking a look at its advanced sales features.

IS CLICKFUNNELS EASY TO USE?


Easy button I have used several different page creators (mainly Thrive Architect and Divi Builder for elegant themes). I will say that I feel that ClickFunnels is the most complete set of solutions for the cost you can buy. The ability to create your own membership site easily is fantastic. You can use the membership sections for many different things.

You can sell your own courses, or you can do what I have done, which is to use it as a place for my writers, editors and link builders to log in and see their reports of what I expect them to do once they have been hired. . It's basically a training program on how I manage the back-end of my content-based website business.

It easily integrates with a custom domain, so you can configure your target pages, membership site and / or sales funnels on your own website or a custom domain. It has an add-on that allows you to also integrate it with WordPress,
although you can not make payments on your own WordPress site if you charge your customers for the services, since they have their own set of SSL requirements when making payments. You can also start your conversion funnel on your website and host the next steps of the funnel in which payments are made on the default platform for ClickFunnels.

What I like most about the ClickFunnels software is the drag and drop functionality. If you have some sort of experience in Internet marketing, it is much easier than using WordPress natively and literally build the page as you are seeing it.
No more "save it" and press "preview" to see how it looks. WordPress is still what you should use for content-based websites, but ClickFunnels can become a powerful ally if you intend to sell programs or membership products to your customers who visit your website. The customization options are virtually unlimited when creating an appropriate marketing funnel.

CLICKFUNNELS PROS & CONS
Let's look at the pros and cons of using the ClickFunnels software.

Pros:

Easy to use "drag and drop" functionality
Profitable (basic membership is $ 97 / month and has everything you need)


Can be integrated into custom domains / WordPress site
Legitimate page builder: you can see the changes as you make them


Can be integrated with Stripe to take payments easily
It can be integrated with Convertkit or other email providers to send automatic emails


It can be used to sell physical or digital products
Functionality of the membership area


The support is really good, it will often create video screenshots just for you


Can share funnels between people (funnel design business opportunity)


A lot of FREE prefabricated templates that you can use and customize immediately


It has a comprehensive split test tool that allows you to split the different landing test pages and declare a winner
Conversion tracking statistics so you can compare which offers convert the best
Email integration that allows full marketing automation

Cons:

It's more software that you'll have to spend time learning


It can be confusing if you are a beginner internet marketer


When ClickFunnels goes down, so do your landing pages


The support is first class, but it can take a couple of hours to respond


URLs can be originals if you are not using a custom domain


As you can see, the professionals definitely outweigh the cons. Some of the disadvantages are quite fussy, including messy URLs, but that's more of a personal preference than anything else. I know there are many other creators of landing pages that people will use, including Thrive Architect from Thrive Themes. For me, I have found that the integration of the funnel step is one of the funnel programs easier to design.

With TA, you must design the page, and then link to the following pages in the sequence and everything is done within WordPress. Although I love Thrive and its themes, I think ClickFunnels is intrinsically easier to use than TA, but obviously it has a monthly cost.
