Building A Sales Funnel Using Wordpress
With the shopping season upon us, I wanted to share some training on building a simple but effective sales funnel using only WordPress, some free plugins, and other free tools to help you sell more. The funnels you can create will be equivalent to those you must pay hundreds of dollars for using services such as LeadPages, ClickFunnels, etc.
Why spend money on a sales funnel service when you can do it yourself for free?
What you will learn in this tutorial will help you get started fast and within 1-2 hours maximum, you should be up and running with your very own free sales funnel!
Here is a screenshot of the first landing page showing the above the fold I have created using the setup I describe in this tutorial:
This is the 'Above The Fold" screenshot with a video background...It looks clean, professional, and I believe will convert. Cost? $0
There are other advantages to building your sales funnel on your own WordPress site too. Things like when using your own the domain (if you are using one you bought) and creating your sales funnel, you can add in additional features that you want or need and that may not be possible with one of the paid services. Also you are building more SEO power on YOUR site versus one hosted by someone else...
Here are the steps we will go through today:
(1) Introduction. This page! : )
(2) Elementor. Your very own free Page Builder.
(3) SumoMe. A free tool for optin forms and an email autoresponder connection (w/ Pro Upgrade, otherwise you will have to export your leads)....
(4) Icegram and Rainmaker Plugins. These are advanced pop-ups tools.
(5) Collect dot Chat. This is a free ChatBot tool.
(6) Yoast SEO Plugin. Useful for improving SEO.
(7) Social Locker Plugin. Useful for promoting social sharing of your content.
(8) Wrap Up. We go over one more time everything and open the door for questions...
At the end of the tutorial, you should be able to quickly get the tools onto the WordPress site that you own and start creating your own sales funnels.
Note that you will likely still want to learn more on how to set up the pages, opt-in forms, pop-ups, and offers using copy that most effectively will sell.
This training is to show you how you can do the sales funnels yourself, without using the expensive platforms that you will have to pay for otherwise. This is an expense you do not need to incur.
Read on, we are about to open the door to increased sales for you!
