In this article I will do detailed ClickFunnels Review with pros and cons of ClickFunnels.
The ClickFunnels Page Builder
Since this is most likely ClickFunnels’ most important feature, I wanted to pay special attention to it. In reality, I believe that a large part of why I gave ClickFunnels such a high rating is because it is a fantastic landing page builder. ClickFunnels distinguishes itself from other page builders by emphasizing its funnel approach, but I use it primarily for this landing page builder.
In any case, there’s a decent selection of templates to choose from, but as you would imagine, only ClickFunnels’ templates are free. It’s not difficult to look through the templates because they’re sorted by funnel form.
You can also save and build personal page templates, and they are fairly simple to locate. As you can see, simple settings can be toggled and the editor can be opened. You’ll be working with a drag-and-drop builder once you open your pages in the editor. It’s a little more involved than some other lightweight page builders, but it’s still simple to use.
The editor employs a four-part page structure: lines, bars, columns, and elements. Consider these components as if they were meant to be together (this article has a helpful diagram). In a nutshell, parts contain rows, columns, and elements. Each page may have multiple parts. Rows and columns both go inside pieces, but columns go into rows directly. You can have a row of one column or up to four columns this way. Elements are the dynamic bits that go within columns and allow visitors to connect with your website.
It may appear difficult at first, but it’s actually very simple once you get the hang of it. Everything is color-coded—for example, the selection in the above screenshot is a light green box because it is a segment, but it would be orange if I was hovering over an element.
A minor criticism of the builder that I’ve heard (but haven’t personally experienced) is how grid-like it is—you have to operate inside those columns and rows. I don’t think this is a big deal, and the builder gives you plenty of options without compromising ease of use, but it’s worth mentioning. Overall, I’m a big fan of the page builder. It simplifies the process of creating your landing page and furthers ClickFunnels’ mission of making it easier for you to make money online.
How to create a Funnel?
There are two main methods that you can use to create a funnel.
- The Classic Funnel Builder – Select a goal, choose a funnel type, and then build your funnel.
- The ClickFunnels Cookbook – Take advantage of the pre-made funnel templates created by Clickfunnels.
If you’re new to Clickfunnels, the Funnel Cookbook is a great place to start to learn how to build a good funnel. So let’s take a look at how to use the Clickfunnels Cookbook to build a good lead generation funnel.
Using the Clickfunnels Cookbook
Pick + New Funnel from the Clickfunnels dashboard. Select; from the left-hand menu once the Funnel Cookbook has opened.
- The Industry
- The Type of Funnel
- Your Goal
We decided to make a lead generation funnel for a professional service with the aim of gathering contact information. The top pre-built funnels that fit my requirements were then presented to me by Clickfunnels.
Using the Cookbook Funnel Builder
You’ll find a video and an explanation text after you’ve made your choice. These will give you tips on how to make the most of your funnel. You can also see how many pages your funnel has on the right-hand side of the screen, as well as a funnel map.
The Funnel Cookbook’s second move is to choose a template for the funnel package you’ve selected. There are both free and paid models to choose from, and you can preview them before making a decision. Since these models are all fully customizable, you can simply choose the one that best fits your requirements.
How to configure the Funnel Settings?
Clickfunnels will show you the funnel template you selected in your dashboard after you’ve made your selection. You can access a variety of funnel features and configuration options from this page. This includes the following:
- Edit Page – Edit your funnel.
- Settings – Edit the settings of your funnel.
- Funnel Steps – View your funnel’s pages.
- Launch Checklist – Check what steps need completing before launching your funnel.
- Automation – Send SMS messages or emails to fresh contacts.
- Contacts – View a collective list of all your new contacts.
- Statistics – View the stats of your funnel.
It’s important to configure the settings before editing the content of your funnel. In the top right-hand corner of the dashboard, choose Settings. The following main features will be available to you here:
- Domain – Choose the domain name for your funnel.
- Path – Choose the path of your funnel’s domain (eg – www.mysitesname.com/home).
- SMPT Configuration – Choose the SMPT configuration for your under Integrations.
- Favicon URL – Upload your custom favicon for your funnel pages.
- Head and Body Tracking Codes – Add any site-wide tracking codes here (eg – Google Analytics pixel).

How to customize your Funnel in the Editor?
Return to your funnel’s Optin tab, which can be found in the left-hand menu of the Clickfunnels dashboard, and pick Edit Page. The Clickfunnels Editor will now show your lead generation funnel. You can fully customize the look of your template here. Let’s take a look at your options:
- Mobile/Desktop View – Examine how the funnel appears on mobile and desktop computers.
- SEO Meta Data – Under Settings > SEO Meta Data you can add SEO information to your funnel, such as title, overview, keywords, and more.
- Background – Under Settings > Background You may change the color of your funnel’s background or add a picture or video to it.
- Sections – Your funnel parts can be added, copied, and managed. You can change section settings and choose from pre-made sections here.
- Elements – From the Elements tab, drag and drop pre-made elements into your funnel. Types, media, content blocks, and much more can all be added.
All elements on the page can be dragged and dropped, and settings can be changed by clicking directly on the element you want to change. You’ll also need to link your SMPT service to your funnel in the editor. Select Settings > Integrations, then your SMPT service from the drop-down menu. Spend some time getting to know the Clickfunnels Editor before customizing your funnel to your exact specifications.
