What would you say if I asked you what your biggest challenge is starting an online business? I bet building sales funnels and traffic generation would be high on your list.

Building a sales funnel requires many of the skills of online marketing. They are a subtle combination of art, science, and psychology.

Watch my quick video below.

The done-for-you services I mention in the video can be found here: https://onlineprofitsystem.pro/

As an Online Business Coach, I know the story too well. Many of you have employed people to build sales funnels and drive traffic for you.

It can be expensive, with the results often mediocre at best.

As a beginner or an experienced Online Business Owner, you want a sales funnel you control. It is critical to test and measure results as you go and constantly refine your sales funnel process.

Basic elements of a sales funnel

Sales funnels should gently guide your audience into a series of logical steps.

The basic elements consist of:

  • Landing/Capture Page
  • Thank you Page
  • Offer Page
  • Checkout
  • Upsell / Downsell Pages

Types of Sales Funnels Available

Your own self-hosted sales funnels

My preferred way to build sales funnels is by using my own hosting, WordPress plugin Optimizepress, Aweber autoresponder, and tracking software.

Personally I find that I have complete control to get exactly what I want. Visually I design my pages from scratch and give my visitors the best possible experience.

For hosting I use Siteground. I've found Siteground to be secure, fast and reliable.

Optimizepress is a WordPress plugin. They have just released Version 3 which is lighter and more responsive than Version 2.

Tracking software is essential. One of the tools I wouldn't be without you can find here.

You'll want an autoresponder to build your email list. I use Aweber

With all sales funnels and online real estate you own, always install your Facebook Pixel ready for Facebook ads targetting.

 

Hosted Services

If you're an online marketer, you'll know about Russel Brunson and ClickFunnels.

ClickFunnels provides everything you need to start and run an online business. They provide sales funnels, check out facilities, membership websites and more.

All this functionality does come at a price. However, it's a great solution if you're an Online Business Owner with limited tech skills, looking to build a reliable sales funnel.

 

Done For You Sales Funnels

Done-for-you sales funnels can work extremely well if they are proven to work and have products already installed. I made reference to this in the video.

Maybe you are new to the online business world or looking for an additional income stream. If that's the case, done-for-you ‘business in a box' products is the way to get you into profit quickly without trying to figure out the tech.

Traffic Strategies

In Part 2 of this video, I talk about traffic and the different options available.

The essence of traffic is mastering one traffic strategy, before moving onto another.

Traffic generation and traffic strategies is a huge subject in itself, so here's my suggestion. Russel Brunson, the creator of Clickfunnels has just released his new book. All you pay is shipping and the book is free.
