Help implementing funnel

5 replies
Hi All,

I'm brand new to the forum, hoping to get some help from those much wiser than I

I'm working on getting my first funnel up right now. I have all the pieces planned out and ready, but now I'm stuck on the technical stuff. I've been reading so much stuff and trying to figure it all out, I think now I've over-thought it all and I'm just confused now.

I have a teaser video to put on a pg of my site (the vid won't be on a sales pg), that sells people on buying a course I've made.

I want a seamless process where they can opt in after the video, then buy the course immediately and then have it delivered. The part I'm stuck on is the opt in- how can they buy and opt in to my list at the same time? I know I can use a shopping cart integrated to autoresponder, but I don't really want to use a shopping cart. Isn't there a way to just have them enter their name and email in the opt in box right after the video then be taken right to where they can pay? Should I just make the thank you pg have a buy button? I want there to be as few steps as possible. I know I'm missing something really simple here- just need someone to hit me with it

Thanks so much!

    Sounds like you are on the right track. If it was me i would make sure the customers know that when they opt in below the video they will be taken straight to the sales page

    Just send them to the sales page after they opt in. If the video is just a teaser, they are going to want more information after they opt in, not just go straight to payment. Once they submit their email, send them to a sales page where they find all the additional information they are looking for, benefits of your product, and then the buy button. If I'm understanding correctly that's what you are trying to do

      I should have been clearer- I guess the video isn't really a teaser. It's pretty much a sales video. It gives all the details of the offer, so I feel like a sales pg would be redundant. The people who end up on this pg have already gotten a bunch of free content, and are now wanting to learn more about what they've read, so they watch the video, which offers them this inexpensive course. So, if they opt in after the video they want to buy the course. Should I go about it differently?

    This is normally how I do it:

    1) prepare a teaser free video/report/ebook with opt in box

    2) when my visitors opt in to get the free stuff, they will be sent to a OTO page after they've confirm their subscription.

    - if you're using aweber, click "my lists", "list settings",
    - click "confirmed opt in"
    - at the bottom of the page, you'll see "confirmation success page URL"
    - key in your OTO page url

    3) At the bottom of your OTO page, don't forget to insert a link that says, " I'm not interested, blah....... Please bring me to download page of the free, blah......" - these statement should link to the download page of your free stuff.

    Hope it helps :-)

    Hey mate,

    Honestly, I'd suggest altering your business model slightly. Why do you want them to purchase the product straight after they opt in? The purpose of the squeeze page is to get them to opt in. Send them a few emails to build a relationship with them and then send them the payment page.

    If you really want this, what you can do is after they've opted in, instead of redirecting them to a thank you page, simply redirect them to the payment page. If you're using Aweber, I think you may just need to edit your code, but I'm not 100% sure how that post-opt in redirection works.

    There's no need for a Plan B because it distracts from Plan A.
