Foundations

Set the foundations

Let’s get started! The foundations is all about putting together a high-converting funnel and your objectives for the funnel.

Create Your High-Converting Funnel in a Day

Imagine having an automated system to connect, nurture & launch your offers to your audience without having to show up on social media 24/7 or live launching.

Let's get started.

Why foundations are important. Setting strong foundations for your funnel is important because before you grow your funnel (aka bring more people in), you need to make sure that it converts. If you're attracting hundreds of people to your funnel every day, but it's not optimized where a large percentage of them actually join, you're basically filling a cup that has a hole.

1. Build a Fully Automated Funnel

What's worse than not marketing your funnel is marketing an incomplete funnel. Before you go on and market your funnel, make sure that your funnel is fully complete & automated. Don't make a mistake I made where you start promoting before you've built & tested everything and start getting emails asking why the link isn't working!

2. Use ONE Link for Promotion

You should have one link that you use to promote the funnel. Yes, you may have different duplicated versions of it to track where your sources best convert, but you shouldn't be placing more than one link in one area.

3. Make the End Goal Extremely Clear

You should set a clear goal for your funnel for yourself as well as your audience. Does this link lead to a free resource where the goal is to sign up & enter the automated funnel? Or is it a link to a sales page where you'll place Facebook pixels and retarget them again in the future?

This goes the same for your audience. IF they click the link, where will they go? Why should they click the link in the first place? If you can't answer these questions, you should re-visit the objectives of why you're building + growing your funnel in the first place.

4. Maximize by Utilizing Email Automation

Many people set up their free resources with a free lead magnet and only utilize the "email incentive" feature.

Basically, they only send one email directly related to the lead magnet and call it a day.

To make sure that you're maximizing your reach with every person who signs up, use tools like Activecampaign to send emails automatically after someone signs up to sell your products/services.

5. Get Ready to Sell

If you're thinking, "Hae, should I send a weekly newsletter to these people?" - I need you to STOP. Stop thinking that if they sign up for your email list, that you have to send them endless value to deserve to sell to them.

They signed up for your lead magnet because they have a problem and your lead magnet offered a solution. They're interested, and you're holding the solution.

So stop thinking that you need to "earn" your right to send sales emails. If they don't want to be sold to, they'll unsubscribe, and you'll be left with the right people who want to hear/learn/purchase from you.

6. Know Where Your Sales Are Coming From

Does it make sense to pour water in a jar that's leaking? That's exactly what you're doing when you focus on a traffic source that doesn't perform well. To amplify your reach and make sure that your time is spent on the right things, make sure you track your sources and sales.

Inside Funnel in a Day, you'll get a funnel metrics spreadsheet and a Google Analytics workshop that helps you track this easily.

7. Make the Journey Clear

When you think of funnels, it's easy to only think of landing pages, tech, etc., and forget that you're creating a journey where real people are reading and experiencing. When you build your funnel, make sure that you know where your audience will be and the objective at every step. Don't make things confusing for your audience.

8. Optimize Conversions Consistently

Using a metrics tracker like what we have in Funnel in a Day, keep track of your conversion rates and optimize them. Along with the metrics tracker and Google Analytics, we use tools like Clarity from Microsoft to find out heatmaps and view recordings of user experience.

9. Optimize + Update Your Copy

The words you put in your funnel + emails should always be optimized! Depending on the performance, try & test different versions (we call it A/B testing) and consistently improve how you're delivering the message to your audience.

10. Make Your CTAs Are Clear

More important than having a pretty funnel is having a clear funnel. In #9, you should've optimized & updated your copy so that your audience knows exactly why they're here and what you can do to help them.

Now, you should make sure that they know exactly what to click (links, buttons, etc.) to get to the next step.

11. Invest in Your Funnel

Whether it's investing in an expert to build your website or using paid advertising to explode your traffic, you need to be prepared to invest in your funnel.

The reason why our clients pay us $12,000+ to build funnels is that they are ready to make an investment in something they know they will make back. Once a funnel is built, it's a machine that can be used for years to bring you profit.

Your Website

put it in your website

Your website is valuable real estate that you should be taking advantage of. Use every chance you have to grow by utilizing this!

Note: While you can utilize all ideas mentioned in this section, I heavily recommend choosing wisely from the list to implement. Implementing all ideas could cause your site to look distracting or overly promotional if you don't design it correctly.

With that said, let's begin!

12. Your Main Navigation

On your website, you should put the link to your funnel inside your main navigation. This means that next to your links where you have your home, about, blog, etc., you should put the link to your funnel with titles such as "Free Guide."

13. Your Footer Navigation

Along with your main navigation, if you have footer navigation that contains your legal pages, contact, etc., make sure you place your funnel link there as well.

14. Create a Top Bar Row

On the top section of your site, create a full-width row that directly promotes your funnel or lead magnet.

This is an example we did for our client. You'll not only see a top bar row but an example of the main navigation. Additionally, you'll see that the entire first fold (what you see on your screen when you load a website without scrolling) promotes the funnel lead magnet.

We created this on WordPress using Beaver Builder and Beaver Themer, but you can use plugins such as Hellobar to add it to your current WordPress website.

15. Create a Row in Your Homepage

Create a promotional row on your homepage that leads directly to the funnel or lead magnet. In the example below, one of our clients created a promotional row that led straight to the sales page.

16. Create a Row in Your Footer

Along with your footer navigation, it's always beneficial to place another row in your footer to remind your audience to sign up when they've scrolled down. In most cases, your audience will see this after they have read your blog posts.

By this time, they've already gone through at least one page on your site, so it's another friendly reminder to sign up.

Here is an example of this we built in our client's website:

17. Create a Row in Your Blog Archive Page

Creating a section that promotes your funnel in your blog is extremely important because that's essentially your hub of new audience users. If you're utilizing SEO correctly, you should be getting new audience users every day through your articles.

Here is an example that we have on our site. We developed it so that your audience can sign up directly from the page. However, this can be easily done by creating a wide graphic, placing it as a full-width element, and linking it straight to your funnel landing page.

18-21. Create a Row before Your Blog Post

Inside your blog post page, you can place your funnel in the following areas:

18. Before the blog post
19. Inside the blog post
20. In the blog post sidebar
21. Below the blog post

22. Write Goal-Oriented Blog Posts

If you feel uncomfortable placing your funnel in blog posts that are not related to your funnel, it's always a great idea to publish articles specifically about your funnel.

23. Email Signature

While this isn't something you put on a website, you can insert your funnel or lead magnet in your email signature so that you're consistently spreading awareness of your funnel.
