How to Make a Marketing Funnel For Free! Without ClickFunnels!

How to Make a Sales Funnel For Free without clickfunnels

Hi , I will be showing you how you can make a marketing funnel completely free!

Creating and Marketing sales funnels are one of the great ways to make money online if you have a product/service to offer. But most people do not know how to do it properly

ClickFunnels is by far the best marketing funnel builder out there and there’s no denying that. But the problem is, It costs a whopping $97 per month which is a bit too expensive in my opinion. So that makes most of the beginner bloggers or other business people left out of this.

But like always , There is a way.

I found a great marketing/sales funnel builder and a free alternative to ClickFunnels – WIX!

Yeah, Wix is just a website builder. But only a handful of people know that it can be used as a sales/ marketing funnel builder too.

But what Exactly is a Marketing Funnel?

In Simple terms, A sales funnel or a marketing funnel is a path that a prospect takes through the site that finally results in a conversion.

So Before we even start building this marketing funnel, Let’s see how we are going to make prospects into customers by moving them through the funnel and ultimately reaching a stage where they buy the product/service.

Generally, A marketing funnel consists of 4 stages – Awareness, Interest, Decision, and Action. I will explain each and every stage and how a visitor becomes a prospect and finally becomes a consumer.

A visitor lands on your website through organic search or through social links. He/She may go through some of your posts and at some point you ask them to sign up for your email list by giving them some free product/ebook/software in exchange.

And once he or she signs up, they become a prospect. You can now market your product outside through emails, send them emails about your new blog post, sending them discount coupons and much more. This makes these leads come back to your website

At the start of this marketing funnel, there will be a lot of people but when it comes to the end, the funnel gets narrowed with fewer people but these people are the ones that end up buying your product/service.

So Let’s begin building our first marketing Funnel!

Let’s divide this into the following sections :

  1. Signing Up on Wix and Choosing a Template
  2. Choosing a Niche and Studying your visitors
  3. Choosing a Product that is free and of high value
  4. Creating and Designing the Marketing Funnel
  5. Setting Up Automation
  6. The Future Automations.

1.Signing Up On Wix and choosing a Template

Sign up on Wix

Go to Wix.com and create a new account. After you set up your account, Click create your site. It will take you through a series of steps. Click the ones that suit your website the best.

Look for a great eye-catching template. Select the landing pages category. There are a lot of templates that you can use for this marketing funnel.

2.Choosing a Niche and Studying your visitors

Choose a niche based on your current website or if you do not have a website, select a niche like fitness, make money online, software, etc. These niches always have something or the other to sell.

As you can see, my website is on making money online and other blogging stuffs. I would choose something based on this.

So, I decided I would build a marketing funnel for those people who are looking to improve their traffic to their blogs/website. And Guess what? I found a perfect product on ClickBank.

3.Choosing a Product that is free and of high value

But before we market the Clickbank product. We need an Email List so that people can sign up to us and we can sell more than one product.

But ? What would tempt the visitors to sign up for my newsletter?

Freebie, Of course! Search the whole internet for a product that is free and that which provides high-quality content. It can be a PDF, a free course, a Physical product ….or anything.

4.Creating and Designing the Marketing Funnel

Now that you have a free product, you are all set to make your own marketing Funnel. Go back to Wix and start creating a great landing page for your visitors.

The landing page should be attractive and must make the visitors want to sign up and grab that free item that you provided. Here’s an Example that I did –

Marketing Funnel landing Page

The Best and the most useful feature of Wix is that it has its own E-mail marketing tool. And it’s absolutely FREE!

Add a Wix form to your website by clicking add apps button on the left-hand side of Wix Editor. Add the form with just the Email input.

But what happens as soon as someone submits the form?

Do you want it to say “Thanks for submitting” ?

No ! Never. You want your visitors to be redirected to a webpage which explains something about your product that you are going to promote. It can be something like this –

Thank You Page

After you have designed the landing page, automation must be started so that for each person who subscribes to your form will get the product/e-book through E-mail.

See This :-

5. Setting Up Automation

Go back to your Wix dashboard. From the menu on the left side, select customer management. Then click on Automations -> New Automation.

You will be redirected to a page like this with three options –

Automation for Marketing Funnel

The first option will be to choose a trigger and For us, the trigger is when someone submits a Wix form.

The next option is to choose an Action. An action can be sending an email, Sending a message, etc. We will choose to Send an Email.

Design the Email you wish to send your subscribers. This E-mail should contain the free course/product. All Email designing tools are provided by Wix and you need not worry about that.

The third and final option is to specify when the Email should be sent. Select Immediately so that the automation sends the email without any Delay!

Save the automation.

Congratulations, you have now completed the first phase of your marketing Funnel.

6. The Future Automations

Now that you have completed the hard part of a marketing funnel, the next subsequent things to do are quite easy.

Design more automations promoting your product that you wish to sell. Do not just give direct links to buy them. Rather, State why this product can help the customer in his life.

When designing the automations, do not forget to change the time to send the Email, set it to 2 days after a visitor submits a form.

So that’s It! You have Successfully completed setting up your first free marketing funnel using Wix.

  1. Hi I been struggling to start a online business do you have any more tips

    • I would recommend you to start by building a blog. But, keep in mind that it can take more than 1 year to make a regular income from it.

      Other business that you can start would be Dropshipping. Dropshipping is really profitable only if you have the right product to sell to the right person. I would be writing more articles on dropshipping in the near future. So stay tuned to this blog.
