Using ClickFunnels for Affiliate Marketing: Concepts You Must Know
Before you start using ClickFunnels, you need to understand the core concept of how things work.
So we get traffic that can come from many different places such as Google, Facebook, YouTube, Email, etc.
Then we can send that traffic to the opt-in page (you can also call it a lead magnet page) of our sales funnel that we have created using the ClickFunnels.
And the main goal of the opt-in page is to capture the email address of the visitor.
Now you might be thinking why capture an email address and why not send the visitor directly to the affiliate offer? Well, it is because capturing the email address of your visitor is really very important considering affiliate marketing.
Even if you drive your visitor to your final sales page only a few of them are going to actually convert. The rest of them will just bounce away from your funnel. So it is important that you collect the email list of all your visitors right at the beginning of your funnel so you don’t lose those visitors.
By capturing the email address of your visitors, you can later on send them emails regarding other products promotion that can be more related to them.
So the first step is we have to create an opt-in page where we can collect the email address of our visitors. On our opt-in page, we can give the visitor something for free in return for the email address they share.
And you know why this technique of sales funnel is so powerful as compared to any random website promoting some affiliate offer?
The answer is because on a website there are many distractions and the customer might get confused to make the final decision.
While on a sales funnel that we create using the Clickfunnels, everything is quite targeted and distraction-free. On each step, the visitor has very less options to choose from (like either to share email address or not share, etc…)
And don’t worry thinking that you may not get sales because right at first you are asking for their email address.
In fact, just think if a customer is not willing to share their email address with you then they are not actually your potential customers. It is better to have customers who are willing to share with you their email addresses rather than just inactive customers. I hope you get my point.
After the opt-in page, we are supposed to drive the visitor to the next page which is the bridge page (not the affiliate offer page yet).
The goal of the bridge page is to frame their mind and make them ready to go to the affiliate offer page.
And finally, once your visitor moves from the bridge page to the affiliate offer page, there they will make the purchase if they are fully convinced.
So to use ClickFunnels for affiliate marketing and promoting your affiliate offer, you need to create an account, choose the product you want to promote, build your funnel, and launch it. Along with that, you must have the basic concept of how everything will work on the funnel.
That’s it! If you know all these, then you are ready to get started! Hope this helps you. Thanks 🙂
