The simple sales funnel? does it still work?

9 replies
Hello,

I have seen over and over the same sales funnel that everyone talks about.

Squeeze page - Free offer - follow up emails - promotion of products

From my experience, this information is mainly what i have been fed.

What is your opinion? and experience?

Cheers.

    That is a simple funnel to make money online.

    You can really get creative when building your own Funnel Online.

    Some people would also have an Upsell after giving the visitor the free stuff. That usually helps you boost up sales online.

    It might seem and sound so simple - but this funnel works very well all the time!

    I wish you the best of the best!

    Cheers!

    At the beginning, I thought making money online with a blog was super super hard. Not anymore. Learn the art of making money online blogging - step by step - HERE.

    Dear OP,

    You have the fundamentals of a funnel there. There are many tweaks and tactics to the basic funnel. Just off the top of my head some ideas to explore and track when you get momentum:

    1. Using a two step squeeze page I.e giving quality info upfront then asking for optin.
    2. Using a $1 offer after optin (credit to Declan O Flaherty for this one). A buyer is a buyer.
    3. Skipping the free offer, create a product and get affiliates to drive traffic I.e. Create buyers list from the get go instead of taking time to convert freebie seekers.
    4. Not having any immediate one time offer but direct your optin to whitelist you etc to ensure future email Deliverability
    5. Be different, go against the herd, your optins will be pleasantly surprised and more receptive. We all get funnel blindness after a while.

    Random thoughts typed on my phone so apologies for lack of structure and typos.

    All the best

    Luke

      Has always, and will always work.

      I've had funnels from 1 page to funnels with over 100 pages.

      It's all about you making it work

    i agree ...very simple funnels always work: less than 50 words:
    look at the squeeze page in my signature: (i get 45%-50% optin when i send solo ad this squeeze page. straight , to the point. be specific.

    Hello,

    I have seen over and over the same horseless carriage that everyone talks about...

    Not trying to make fun of the OP - just pointing out that this is established, it works, and isn't going to change absent major societal changes.

    Instead of asking for opinion & experience - you'll actually get somewhere by taking action.

    P.S. Rereading this - it looks harsh - but I'm really not trying to criticize anyone! Really!

    Yes my friend.

    This way is a proven way. It worked, it works and will working many years from now.

    So the problem always is you !

    Some wait for it to work alone. You have to find the right way ( for you )
    to make the wheels keep on turning...

    Hope for the Best,
    Nathan

    Have u ever brought a product, ask yourself why?

    Did you buy the following products? Why?

    Did you buy after a few emails were sent to you? Why?

    Why? Because this stuff works, you just got to put some time and effort into it.

    If it was easy, everybody would be doing it.

    All The Best

      Actually, this is a good visualization technique to use. I try to do this myself to get more insight into Consumer Behavior.

      Thanks for bringing this to light.

      Try it and you can begin to get a picture of how people are acting and reacting in your Sales Funnel.
