Can You Make Money As a Clickfunnels Affiliate? Landing Page Copy
While Clickfunnels may be the most popular sales funnel software ever, you often hear people talking about earning a lot of money as a Clickfunnels affiliate. But can you? Landing Page Copy
Well, the answer is absolutely. However, not everybody will.
It all depends on what your skillset is, and how you go about promoting it.
Clickfunnels Affiliate Promotion Methods
In this manual , I will lay out some of the basic ways people promote Clickfunnels as an affiliate. I have tried a couple of ways myself, and will share what works best for me.
First, let’s lay out some of the most popular promotional procedures.
Please note, this isn’t all the methods. However, being a part of several Clickfunnels Facebook groups, these are the methods I most commonly see cited .
- Facebook Advertising
- Google Adwords
- Bing Ads
- Email Marketing
- Share Funnels
- Solo Ads
Below, we will discuss each method a little more in depth. Hopefully this can help you choose which method best resonates with you.
Among the most common methods of promoting Clickfunnels as an affiliate, is to use Facebook Advertising. Matter of fact, Clickfunnels educates you to do this in their Affiliate Bootcamp.
Now, is this way effective ?
For me it was not. I found that because this is taught from the bootcamp, it is somewhat saturated. Imagine thousands of people, all running the same ad, for the same product.
Essentially, that is what it is. Now, some individuals provide a free lead magnet, to obtain an email address; and in the follow up attempt and get the customer to take the free + shipping publication offer.
This proves for a much more effective approach, if you’re wanting to go the Facebook advertisement route.
Up next, is another paid traffic source; Google Adwords.
Now, lots of people have made a ton of money as a Clickfunnels affiliate, using Adwords. The most popular and well known Clickfunnels affiliate, is Spencer Mecham.
This is with good reason, seeing as he’s broken 1 million dollars as an affiliate. Landing Page Copy
The down side to Google Adwords, is how competitive it is. Especially since the release of Spencer’s class Affiliate Secrets 2.0.
Due to the popularity of his course, many people have dove headfirst into the Adwords method, driving the cost of one Clickfunnels trial through the roof.
I’ve seen people paying upwards of $400 for a single click! Not a trial; a click.
Not sure about you, but that is a bit too rich for my blood.
Because of Adwords being so large , some folks have turned to advertising on Bing.
Though Bing is not as popular as Google, bear in mind it’s still responsible for approximately 33 percent of all net traffic.
Lately for those who have an Android phone, you may have noticed when clicking a link in your email, the URL opens in Bing rather than Google.
Because of this, I would expect Bing visitors to increase . So, it may be a great opportunity for Bing Ads. In reality , I know of a few men and women who are very effective with them.
This method could work together with paid visitors , or as a stand alone thing .
First off, you have to have an email list constructed first. You want the listing to be built having an audience interested in making money online (also known as the MMO market ).
Another audience that may do well as a Clickfunnels Affiliate, is if you have business contacts on your list. Especially people in a market such as Health or Real Estate.
From there you would want to market Clickfunnels in your email followups. Rather that is by giving a ton of free value, or a lead magnet. Or, even a talk funnel, which we shall discuss next.
Since it is said that it takes someone around 7 times of watching something on average, before they purchase; the goal here would be to keep showing them the value of Clickfunnels.
The end result will be that a certain proportion of individuals may end up taking the free trial of Clickfunnels. Once they do, supply them information , or free tools etc to help them along.
The end goal is obviously you want them to become a paying subscriber, in which you would make a recurring commission for every month they remain. Landing Page Copy
This is a really effective method for getting Clickfunnels trials. The downside to it, is that you’ve got to be a Clickfunnels penis , and be adequate at building a funnel.
What you will do, is drive traffic to a landing page, where you actually give these funnels for free.
The goal here, would be for people to not be Clickfunnels associates currently , so they will have to sign up with your connection, then import the funnel in their dashboard.
Not only does this job, it was the first strategy that actually worked a year or so ago. This is a win-win in many cases.
The new subscriber instantly includes a funnel, which can possibly let them start collecting trials instantly. Also at the same time, it lands the Clickfunnels user that supplied the funnel, new trials.
From that point, you would send some useful followup emails, with advice on how best to property the traffic, and how to turn them into paying members.
Most likely, you’ll also be getting mails in the funnel builder. Because just like you’re trying to convert trials and your funnel, they’re trying to convert you.
It is not as simple as it sounds. Because in order for this to be effective, you have to get traffic naturally. This can be done by paid traffic, email marketing or SEO; that we’ll talk about today.
For those of you that do not know , SEO is my bread and butter.
Sure, it takes more time to start making progress. However, it involves little to no money to begin .
The purpose of SEO, is to write high quality and valuable articles (such as this one), that will rank in the search engines of Google, Bing, Yahoo etc.. .
Once it requires some time to rank, once it does a great article can bring in traffic for years to come; with minimal maintenance.
This was my favorite method when starting out, because I didn’t want to sink lots of cash into paid traffic.
The con about compensated visitors, is that although it is possible to get traffic quick, you need to constantly keep sinking money into ads, or the traffic stops.
You don’t have to be worried about this with SEO.
Although I have not made a million dollars with Clickfunnels as an affiliate, all of my earnings are profit .
Here is a screenshot of my dashboard at the time of this writing.
I started getting Clickfunnels traffic around April of this past year. So, about 9 months ago.
As you can see, I’ve earned almost 15k in Clickfunnels Affiliate commissions.
The great thing about SEO, is how it begins to chemical once your website (s) start to rank.
If you are interested in how I heard SEO, you can check out the class I took here.
Last on my list, is solo advertisements.
Solo ads is one of the most popular strategies into building an email list.
You probably will not receive any trials, maybe a stray 1 or 2 from running a solo ad. Nonetheless, you should find a decent quantity of optins to your list.
From there, you would use the email advertising method, to try and convert your new list subscribers to Clickfunnels trials. Landing Page Copy
With effective email marketing , this can be a good method to earn commissions at the long run.
The fantastic news about solo ads, is which they’re a list where you will forever own.
You do not own Google traffic. Or, Facebook traffic.
You do own your email list.
If Facebook shut down tomorrow, I know a lot of people , who would be SOL.
Another incentive to solo ads, is that once you build your list, you can promote many different affiliate supplies. It’s not solely for Clickfunnels.
Clickfunnels has its own Clickfunnels Affiliate training, called the Affiliate Bootcamp.
You may register here at no cost.
The motto behind this, is teaching you”How to Retire in 100 Days As a Clickfunnels Affiliate”.
Though I find that a bit extreme, it’s very informative, and can be very helpful if you decide to go through it.
In order to perform all of the training, you will at least need to have the 14 day trial of Clickfunnels, which can be found here.
If after 2 weeks of trialing, you don’t feel like paying for it, Clickfunnels is easy to cancel. I Have done it in the past.
It is done through the dashboard, so there’s no need to have to talk to anyone about it, if you pick it is not for you.
So, as you can see – it could be very rewarding as a Clickfunnels affiliate.
Like anything, there are many people who fail. But if you simply do it , and tweak things as you go, you will be successful.
My advice for you is to select one method which resonates with you, and master it. I see a lot of people who remain stuck, because they divide their attention in a lot of directions.
This does not help you climb. It holds you back.
