Where to start when you feel like you don't have a clue about list building & funnels... But you do know they're critical for online business success.
It seems like everyone and their golden retriever is talking about funnels, am I right?
Landing page builders want you to use their software because they have the fastest servers and industry-leading conversion rates and clever split-testing technology.
Email services promise the slickest automations and best delivery rates and killer segmenting.
Shopping carts want to impress you with their one-click upsells and proven sales page templates and easy credit card integrations.
And don't even get me started with those massive (and incredibly expensive) "all in one" solutions that promise the moon but are so confusing to set up and use that they've earned their own hashtag.
Franky, if the whole thing feels overwhelming, I'm not surprised.
All you want is an easy, step-by-step
plan to follow.
I hear you. And believe me, you are not alone.
In fact, when I ask people what they wish they knew about funnels, the most common response is "I don't even know where to start."
That's why I've created a brand new course, and it's just for smart business owners like you who know WHY they should be building funnels, but who keep getting lost in the HOW.
Inside Funnels 101, I'm going to walk you through setting up your very first funnel, with:
Funnels 101 is exactly what you need when you don't know where to begin.
Funnels 101 is not an hours-long course that will set you back thousands (or even hundreds) of dollars and likely confuse you even more.
This is a quick-and-easy course that will get you up and running with a brand new funnel in hours, not weeks. I kept it simple and laser focused on a single goal: a working funnel you can create in an afternoon.
Funnels 101 is also not a cleverly designed sales page for an expensive software platform. If you've ever taken a "free" course courtesy of a landing page builder or email platform, then you know exactly what I'm talking about.
I'm not going to try to convince you that one tool is better than another, or to upsell you to software you can't begin to use. Instead, I'm going to show you how you can make the right decisions for your business, whether you're on a limited budget or you're ready to invest in more powerful tools.
Funnels 101 is right for you if....
Funnels 101 is definitely not for you if...
When I ask people what they wish they knew about funnels and list-building, the most common response I get is “I wish I knew where to even start.”
In this lesson, we’re going back to basics with an overview of what a funnel is, how they work to serve your potential customers, and why you might be making it more complicated than it needs to be.
What's Your Funnel Goal?
If you asked someone for directions, but didn’t tell them where you want to go, they’d have a really hard time drawing you a map. The same is true for your funnels. It’s impossible to create one without first having some idea of where you want your subscribers to end up.
In this lesson, we’ll talk about several different funnel goals, including product sales, affiliate promotions, discovery calls, and list building, and we’ll also look at how you can determine what your goal is.
Designing Your Opt-In Offer
Your opt-in offer is simply the freebie that you’re going to give visitors in exchange for their email address. This can be a PDF download, a video training, an audio course, a discovery call, access to a private group, a template, or pretty much anything else your audience will find useful.
The secret isn’t in the format, it’s in the value that your freebie offers. In this lesson, we’ll look at what makes a valuable freebie, as well as how to use your funnel goal to determine the best offer for your audience.
Deciding on Your Tech Stack
Here’s where new funnel builders get tripped up. And honestly, this can be pretty confusing. There are just so many options.
At the most basic level, you only need two pieces to build a funnel, and in this lesson we talk about some top choices for both, how to choose the right platforms for your business, and what other, more advanced tools you might want to add later.
Create Your Funnel Pages
In this lesson, we’ll talk about the two must-have pages in every funnel, including what to say, as well as some additional (optional) pages you may choose to add. I’ll share some tips on how to craft compelling headlines and bullet points, along with examples so you can see exactly how these elements combine to attract your ideal client.
Plan Your Follow-Up Strategy
In this lesson, we’ll look at the email follow up sequence, and how you can use that to encourage subscribers to make a purchase, all while helping them to achieve their goals. We’ll talk about the roadblocks he or she might encounter along the way, and how you can use your follow up sequence to help her overcome them.
How to Know if Your Funnel is Working
You’ve got your basic funnel created and running. Fantastic!
Now, how do you know if it’s working?
In this lesson, we’ll look at some key performance indicators and what they mean, and then we’ll take a systematic approach to continual funnel improvement.
Forget what you think you know about building funnels.
They don't have to be complex, multi-level plans with upsells and downsells and tripwires and 37 emails in the follow-up sequence and deadline timers and... well, you get the picture.
With Funnels 101, I'll teach you a very simple set up that anyone can replicate in any niche or industry. Once you have that in your skillset, then you can move on to the fancy-schmancy timers and downsells and other clever tools.
But not right now. Right now, we're keeping it simple.
Here's everything that's included in Funnels 101:
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to have a product to sell to get started building funnels?
No. In the lesson about establishing your funnel goals, I share 2 ways funnels can benefit your business even if you don't yet have a product to sell.
Do I have to spend a bunch of money on expensive landing page builders and email services?
No. You will need tools to build your funnel (and one of them is an absolute must have) but you don't have to spend a fortune on them. In fact, some of them are free, and you probably already have them in place. I go over all the details in lesson 4.
