If you haven’t started utilizing a sales funnel?
Then you really need to.
It’s one of the best ways to not only collect leads…
But also follow-up with them and sell any type of:
- Or even service.
So let’s continue on and get down to the good stuff.
Sales Funnels For Beginners
So what are sales funnels anyway?
Well, it’s the simplest way to get your targeted audience from point A to point B.
Want to generate a ton of leads?
Create a funnel.
Want to generate a ton of sales?
Create a funnel, again.
So let’s look at some different types of funnels and the pages that come along with them.
The Lead Capture Funnel
So what do you need for this type of funnel?
- A lead capture page.
- A thank you page.
On the lead capture page, you simply want to give away a lead magnet.
A lead magnet is something that your targeted audience really wants.
It could be in the form of:
- A PDF.
- An ebook.
- A cheat sheet.
- Video training.
- Or even a 4-day course.
It’s completely up to you.
Once they opt-in on your lead capture page?
They get sent to your thank you page along with getting follow-up emails.
I recommend that you diagram how you want to build out your funnels…
And there are tools to help you out with that, too, just like Funnelytics.
Let’s look at one more popular sales funnel.
Making The Sale
Looking to sell something in the form of a:
- Or even service?
Then this is the traditional type of sales funnel that you should use.
Here are the steps in this type of funnel:
- Sales letter.
- Secure check out page.
- Upsell and down-sell pages.
- Thank you / download page or even a membership page.
The idea here is to make a sale…
And funnels help you out because they focus only on getting ONE thing done.
Imagine trying to make a sale on a website when there are 100 other things to do like:
- Click on banner ads.
- Opt-in to an email list.
- Hover over the menus.
- Read articles and watch videos.
I think you get the idea.
The fact of the matter is this:
Sales funnels will ultimately help you increase your conversions…
And that’s simply by limiting all of the distractions other websites or platforms might have.
Does that make sense?
So let’s wrap things up now.
So in this post we quickly talked about two of the great types of funnels that you can use:
- Lead capture funnels…
- And of course, the traditional sales funnel.
There are always a few questions that come along with these…
So allow me to answer them for you as I wrap up this post.
Q: My online business is brand new, can I still use sales funnels?
A: Absolutely, sales funnels are for any type of business (regardless of when they started).
Q: Where I can do market research for my niche?
A: Simply go wherever your audience hangs out…
Or heck, even search for keywords in Google and see what pops up for ads.
Q: There’s a ton of sales funnel builders, where’s a good place to start?
A: You’re right, there are more than you can shake a stick at.

That should just about do it.
