Optimizepress and easily creating funnels.
Optimizepress is a great WordPress plugin to have access to when it comes to creating landing pages, sales pages, membership sites as well as opt in pages. This is a plugin that I have recently started using myself.
It is easy for anyone to use as well as a variety of themes and customization tools to let users design and construct professional-looking websites without having to write code. Drag-and-drop page builders, pre-designed templates, customisable elements, integration with email marketing platforms, payment gateways, and other capabilities are available with OptimizePress. It also provides tools for split testing, conversion monitoring, and analytics to help you with getting an overview how well your pages are doing, how well they are performing ..
I have earlier written a review on Optimizepress here on my blog, but this time I will be sharing a step by step tutorial on how to create funnels with Optimizepress.
Even if you are a total beginner when it comes to creating funnels, you still will be able to create a funnel in easy steps with Optimizepress, as you can see in the video below.
To get started creating a funnel you go to the menu to the left in the back office of your blog andcreate new funnel below where it says Optimizepress. Then you can choose among several already created funnels . I suggest you will use a done for you funnel if you are a total beginner creating funnels. I would also suggest that you choose to create a funnel involving two steps. This is a simple funnel but it can be very effective as well. You will then have a opt in page and a thank you page. On the thank you page you should share information about how the subscriber will get access to the free lead magnet that you are giving away.
Having a lead magnet as a free egive away is a very effective startegy when building a list, because people basically likes things that are free. The lead magnet can be an ebook, aa video series or something else that you are giving away for free. When you have crceated your funnel you will be see statistics for bot your opt in page as well as the thank you page in the back office of Optimizepress.
Connecting your autoresponder
To connect your autoresponder to your opt in page you need to visit your page and make sure that you are in the edit mode.
Put your cursor in the field for email adress on your form and then you will see a symbol looking like and envelope. Then you will see different autoresponder services that you can integrate with Optimizepress. Then choose your autoresponder service and authorize it.
Do you really need to?
But do you really need to build an email list and using funnels as a marketer?
Yes,creating funnels and building an email list are still important techniques for internet marketers. This is why:
Building an email list allows marketers to interact with their audience directly and establish a long-term relationship with them. Email marketing is still one of the most effective ways to interact and communicate with prospects. You can provide tailored messages, promotions, and important material directly to their inboxes by acquiring authorization to send emails to those who have expressed interest in your products or services. Unlike relying entirely on social media platforms or search engines, an email list is a significant commodity that you own and control.
Email marketing allows you to segment your audience depending on their interests, demographics, or behavior. This segmentation enables you to target certain groups with your messaging and offers, boosting the relevance and efficacy of your marketing efforts. You can increase engagement, boost conversions, and promote customer loyalty by delivering tailored emails to a receptive audience.
Sales Funnels: A sales funnel is a step-by-step procedure that takes prospective clients from initial awareness to making a purchase. By offering the proper content, offers, and calls-to-action at each stage, funnels help streamline the buyer's journey and optimize conversions. Landing pages, lead magnets, email sequences, sales pages, upsells, and downsells are examples. Marketers can properly nurture prospects by adopting sales funnels generate leads, create trust, and motivate prospects toward making a purchase.
Conversion Optimization: Marketing funnels also enable marketers to track and measure the success of their campaigns. Marketers may find areas for improvement and optimize their tactics by evaluating important data such as conversion rates, click-through rates, and engagement levels. Split testing different aspects inside a funnel, such as headlines, offers, or layouts, can aid in the refinement of the marketing strategy and enhance conversions over time. While the specific strategies and tools for developing email lists and funnels may change over time, the fundamental principles of interacting with your audience, offering personalized content, and guiding prospects through the purchase path remain critical for successful online marketing.
Building an email list by using funnels is still very important for every online marketer. Building that buyers list means that you have a group of people that you can reach out by email any time that you want. This means that you do not have to chase people on the internet. You should build your email list constantly, in any way that you can as long as you are using etichal methods of course.
Yes, you can make money without an email list, but having one can greatly improve your ability to make money and build a successful online business. And if you only are driving traffic to a sales page and not an opt in page then you are leaving money on the table. Because when using just a sales page they may only see your offer once and never again. When you have a list you can email offer after offer to those subscribers. But of course you should also build a relationship with your list and not just pitch then with different offers. By creating a relationship with your list you can make them like, know and trust you. This will lead to more sales for you. Many people may unsubscribe from your list if you pitch too hard on the other hand.
Not everyone on your list will buy from you so that is why we at all times should continue to build our lists. Some say that email marketing is dead, but that is not true. Having a list is a great asset to have as a marketer. Do you have a email list, ormaybe several? Are you building them further ever y day? Feel free to leave your comments below.
