If you like video, here’s a quick runthrough what ClickFunnels is and how it works, plus a walkthrough of the inside of the site:
Here’s a step-by-step of how to build a funnel in ClickFunnels…
Using ClickFunnels is simple and quick. The steps to create a funnel in ClickFunnels are below with some screenshots:
Step One. Decide which type of funnel, landing pages, optin page, membership site, etc you want to create.
Step Two. Select “+New Funnel” from your ClickFunnels Dashboard
Step Three. The “build a funnel” page will open. You can select the Cookbook Builder (pre-done templates) or the Classic Funnel Builder. (I’ll choose the cookbook).
Step Four. Here you have the opportunity to browse through the various templates. The Cookbook will help you filter them if you select the Industry or Type of Funnel you want to create.
Step Five. Once you select a funnel template, you have an option to select a pre-built template.
Step Six. Once you select a template (from the free or paid themes), the funnel will be uploaded to your account.
Step Seven. Edit and personalize it for your business, as much or as little as you need. The editor is “drag and drop.” You can code if you want but it is not necessary. Simply select the area that you want to edit, change, or personalize. Make the change you want. Click “save.” Your changes will update on the page automatically.
Step Eight. Launch. You can connect up a domain of your own or subdomain. You can also purchase a domain within ClickFunnels and have ClickFunnels host it. (In the past, ClickFunnels has purchased your first domain for you). I generally prefer to purchase domains within ClickFunnels because I am lazy and it is so easy to do (no CNAME, DNS, etc).

Why we like ClickFunnels over the alternatives…
There are tons of adequate funnel builders. You can probably go out and get close to what you need with any of the alternatives.
But ClickFunnels has….something.
There is a spark in ClickFunnels that you won’t find elsewhere.
It could be Russell Brunson, the CEO of ClickFunnels, who seems to be able to sell anything when he gets on stage. Maybe it is the exciting and fun products ClickFunnels continutes to launch to build and scale your online business (Funnel Scripts, 30 Days Summit, DotCom Secrets, and more…) Perhaps it is the thousands of RABID users.
This “extra spark” is hard to quantify, but one thing is for certain…people who join ClickFunnels are people who are motivated to MAKE MONEY.
ClickFunnels users are action takers, obsessed with succeeding and changing lives.
Dip your toe in. You’ll see what I mean.
If you’d like to learn more about ClickFunnels, you can go to their website, as the company has TONS of information, videos, and testimonials about the product. We think that the best way to make a decision about ClickFunnels is to try it! Then you can decide whether the tool (and the cost) is right for your business.
