DATE: Clickfunnels has announced some major changes to its platform in September of 2019. I have created an up date article summarizing those changes here: https://bettersalesfunnels.com/clickfunnels-review-2019/
In today’s post from Better Sales Funnels, we are talking about the ClickFunnels Bootstrap Plan.”
What is the ClickFunnels Bootstrap Plan? I’ve never heard of it.
The discounted ClickFunnels Bootstrap Plan is a secret. In this option, users get to access the standard tools. but with a reduced amount of funnels, pages, and monthly visitors. In the Bootstrap Plan, you get only 10 funnels, while with the standard plan you get 20 funnels. (The premium plan is unlimited funnels).
Why isn’t the company selling this plan?
ClickFunnels (a SAAS/software as a service) does not offer this plan on its website. This company doesn’t WANT you to select this plan when you get started. The company makes a lot more money when you select the standard $97/month plan, or the Etison Suite $297/month plan (and get Actionetics and Backpack)
In most cases, the only time users have the chance to pick the Bootstrap Plan is when they try to QUIT.
You heard me right.
ClickFunnels will only offer this reduced option when you decide that you don’t want to use ClickFunnels or you don’t want to afford their price tag. When you want to CANCEL.
I have often thought that one of the reasons people leave ClickFunnels is the cost, which can seem high when you are starting out. While you are learning to use the platform (and not making tons of sales), other platforms like Leadpages or Funnelx start to seem attractive.
This price reduction is the company’s attempt to persuade you to stay with them and not go with their competitor. They are willing to offer you a discount because they believe that their product is superior, if only you have the time and chance to learn it and see it.
How do I sign up withthe Bootstrap Plan?
There are two ways. First, you have to start a free trial. Second, you have to have a paid account. In either case, you have to select the option to cancel your account. Once you do, ClickFunnels will try to persuade you to stay with discounts.
Is the ClickFunnels Bootstrap Plan the ideal way to get started making money online with funnels?
While the Bootstrap Plan costs less than the basic or premium suite, we don’t think it is the best option for someone starting out. For most people the reduced plans: $19 sharefunnel plan, $37/month Personal Plan or the $67/month Bootstrap Plan are not the best places to get started.
Instead, we recommend the Funnel Hacks System. The Funnel Hacks System costs a more up front than the discount plans. But listen.
ClickFunnels is not an ATM.
It is a vehicle.
You have to learn to drive it before you can make the big dollars that are 100% possible with ClickFunnels.
There is free training within ClickFunnels (I’ve included a walkaround video about it below). But to launch a business, you need a bit more than this. especially if you are completely new in the world of internet/online commerce.
We of Better Sales Funnels post regularly that everyone in business or sales should read DotCom Secrets. This book is an incredibly affordable resource that is packed with information that you need as a new internet entrepreneur.

Finally, wherever you are in the process….don’t give up, don’t quit, don’t stop. Just remember your dream and why you got started in the first place.
