ClickFunnels is one of the most generous paying affiliate programs in the world. A lot of internet marketers claim to make more than $4000 a month by being a ClickFunnels affiliate. Their affiliate program pays 40% recurring commission for the lifespan of the customer you bring in.
What does that mean?
Let’s say, your friend Jim signs up using your affiliate link. If Jim is a customer for ten years, you continue to get paid for ten years, not just the first month. Isn’t that amazing?
That’s what I like about recurring programs.
They have two pricing levels. The first one is $97, and the other one is $297.
If you sell the $97 package, you make $38.8 per sale.
The $297 package makes you a cool $118.8.
How many packages do you need to sell to reach the $4000 mark?
If it’s the $97 package, you need to sell approximately 103 accounts.
For the $297 package, you need just 34 sales.
Let’s understand ClickFunnels, and what it can do for your client’s business?
If you or your client wants to sell products or services online, at a basic level one needs:
- Website Hosting
- Landing Page Software
- Email Autoresponder
- Split Testing Software
- Automated Webinar Software
- Affiliate Software
- Membership Site Software
In other words, sophisticated marketers use something called a sales funnel.
Let me explain how a sales funnel works
There are several different types of sales funnels; I’m going to explain just one of them with an example.
Step 1: You place an ad on Facebook or Google Adwords.
Step 2: People click on the ad and get to your landing page. You have an enticing offer on your landing page. People either buy it or enter their email to receive a free gift.
Step 3: You send them educational or transformation emails telling them about how your product or service can transform their lives.
Step 4: You give them an ownership experience of your product that they can try for very little to no money. I have given away my ebook for $1. Software companies give away a 14-day FREE trial. You can give away something for little to no money.
Step 5: Upsell and make an offer for a higher-priced item.
It’s like a McDonald’s model. It costs McDonald’s $1.91 in advertising dollar to get people in their door. Their burger is $2.09, that’s a profit of just $0.18. But they upsell you a fries and a coke for $1.77. That’s how they make their money.
Sophisticated marketers give away the front door, but they make money at the back door.
