clickfunnels

Clickfunnel, one of the leadpages alternatives, base plan starts at $97/m which is over 2.5x more costly than leadpages starting plan plus you're limited to 20 funnels and 100 pages and 20k monthly pageviews. However you get all features on the base plan (which includes A/B testing) as well as a 14 day clickfunnels free trial plus (there is no leadpages free trial). Plus you also get shopping cart functionality which means you can create entire sales funnels with one click upsells without having to pay for a 3rd party provider like Samcart (which starts at $99/m). The clickfunnels cost of the full suite with actionetics and backpack (explained above) costs $297/m.


Clickfunnels launched their marketplace last year where you can shop not only high converting landing pages but also entire funnels the community has made. I have uploaded one I created for a previous podcast and what's great is you can simply pick an existing funnel in your account to upload within the seller area, and then all you need to do is complete the description.

With Click Funnels you don't need to have a separate third party checkout solution such as Samcart as it comes with order forms with stripe and braintree integration. Clickfunnels also has it's own membership area which is great for quickly creating a paid content area to deliver an information product. Once people purchase a linked product they automatically get sent a membership login URL to sign up to the members area. Below is one I did for the ski niche

Clickfunnels support can be a little hit and miss, purely down to the nature of growing so insanely fast. When we first joined they helped me massively understand how to structure a sales funnel and we owe them a lot. With their growth, support did decline noticeably however now response rates are way back up and it's fantastic being able to ask for help using the intercom chat widget. However getting your query understood and resolved first time is still not guaranteed, some agents are truly excellent and record personalised videos showing you how to resolve the problem you're having; some responses are less than great. Kevin from the affiliate team is superb at personally answering any questions also. Plus their facebook group has almost 40k people and you are almost ensure to get a quick response from someone in the community.
