When considering choosing a niche for your blog, you need to consider a Niche which you are interested in and which you know about and enjoy writing about. This is because you will need to write content or articles (posts) about the Niche subject which you choose, as an Affiliate Marketer.
Sometimes it can be difficult to choose, so it may be better to decide on something which you have a passion for as you will be investing a lot of time developing content about your niche.
See the following reference for more brainstorming ideas for choosing your niche for your blog.
Choosing a niche for your blog could be almost any subject imaginable, provided that it satisfies the following criteria:
1) It must be a subject which is of interest to people, an audience because these are the potential customers for your product or service.
2) It must be legal.
3) The subject must not be too broad, otherwise, the subject will not be of sufficient focus for your audience, and it will be difficult to promote because the audience is potentially too large, and there is too much competition.
For example, Health is a subject which is too broad for a niche. There is too big a potential audience size, so we need to narrow things down to Men´s Health, or Women´s Health, or Healthy Diet, or Exercise for Health, which can be again broken down by gender or category, or by country or area.
Here are some examples of Niches which may help you when trying to find inspiration, but this is by no means a completely exhaustive list, it is just for illustration:
Here are some ideas about 21 Businesses To Start On A Shoestring, by Shelley McNeil, a book available from Alpus Academy, if you do not have specific ideas of your own which you would like to develop.
Also, you could check out this book:
How To Make Working From Home Productive, by Julian Bright.
Only you have the knowledge for choosing a niche for your blog, since only you know your own areas of expertise and interest, although there are many considerations about whether a niche will be profitable or not, not least of which is how you will monetise your blog.

Another option, if you have difficulty choosing a niche for your blog, is to consider promoting Wealthy Affiliate, and many WA Affiliates make a very good income from just doing that!

The marketplace for all products and services is becoming more and more competitive, and innovation will win the battle to market your products and services online in 2018.
This could be any of the following, as examples, but are better to be something you know about and which you love to do:
Dieting and Weight Loss – narrow the problem, men´s, women´s, belly fat, so as to further categorize the audience.
Sports and Fitness – choose particular sports, such as golf, football, rugby, Les Mills, Triathlon, Running, Cycling, Swimming, sports equipment, weightlifting etc
Family – narrow to Mum´s, kids, Grandparents for example.
Professions, such as Firefighter, Nurse etc
Home and Garden – outdoor, indoor, furniture, carpets, garage and workshop
Motorcycles, Motor Cars – special interests such as vintage cars, particular makes of sports car.
Alternatively, you may have your own unique ideas about a specialized small niche market which you will satisfy – even better!
To do this you can undertake a number of activities, such as:
Market Research among your niche market or audience. For example, you can take a poll on Facebook and display several alternative products and ask for feedback which people from your audience prefer.
You can look at what is trending in the best sellers for each of the online marketplaces such as:
Amazon, Etsy, eBay, Shopify, Google trends, Ali-Express
From this Online Market Research, you can easily ascertain whether there is a demand for the product(s) which you have in mind to sell.
This exercise or conclusion is the validation of the market niche and the proposed product(s).
Driving of traffic can be as a result of any of the following methods:
1. Organic growth
2. Paid Advertisements such as Solo Ads.
3. Pay Per Click Advertisements.
4. Facebook Advertisements (or other Social Media Advertising).
5.Youtube Videos to generate interest in your website.
6. Other Social Media advertizements eg Pinterest.
7. Google Ads, or equivalent Yahoo or Bing.
Monetisation this could be by:
1. Selling your own products (which you source and store, pack ship and deliver).
2. Selling someone else´s products, drop-shipping, with fulfilment by another company, possibly from China such as Alibaba or AliExpress.
3. Selling Affiliate Products (someone else is responsible for fulfilment), for which you receive a commission on each sale.
4. Selling educational services, such as videos or ebooks, webinars etc.
Customer Market Research is needed in order to ascertain what prospective purchasers are looking for, what they need, what problem they need to solve, and what they want to buy. This can be done using Social Media, especially on Facebook to interact with prospective customers. Virtual audiences created by selecting criteria such as gender, age group, occupation, interests.
Sometimes the Customer Market Reseach can be short-circuited by using the real-time records of Trending Products, ie those products which are being sought and bought in large numbers at the most popular online stores such as Amazon, eBay, Etsy, Shopify etc.
Social media is playing a growing role in marketing your products and services online in 2018. This is because marketing is becoming more about developing a long-term relationship between you and your customers.
You constantly need to be updating your prospective customers regarding developments and initiatives taking place in your company. This is so that your prospective customers can see that you are active in the marketplace and are following trends and fashions.
For our OMS review of Rethinking Social Media by Paul O´Mahoney go here.
It is important also to consider which platform you will use to sell your products and services, for example, Amazon, e-bay, Shopify, Slingly, TREX
To market your products and services online in 2018 is becoming more and more complex. Purchasers are becoming more and more discerning, and are better informed than ever. Purchasers will only buy from people they trust. In order to convince people to buy from you, you need to convince them that your brand is better than others, and differentiate yourself from the competition.
Social Media has to be a fundamental part of your Marketing Strategy for your business.
Video is becoming more and more influential so also needs to be integrated into your Marketing Strategy
If you are not already fully trained and experienced in this sort of expertise, you will never sell the products and services which you carefully researched and selected as being in demand by your Niche audience.
We recommend that you consider the full and thorough training available on Wealthy Affiliate as a means of acquiring the necessary skills and expertise.

ZeroUp is an online marketing software Shopify System marketed by Fred Lam, and which claims to offer a means to achieve a very profitable online Shopify business. Fred Lam has himself achieved great success with Shopify and as a result of this can offer Zero Up subscribers some Shopify benefits, because of his close relationship with them.
Fred Lam describes his system as follows:
“ZeroUp™ is a powerful and comprehensive all-in-one e-commerce software to help you build, grow, and scale your business online. It is intelligently designed to help anyone, even those with little prior experience or technical skills to create a flow-blown online store and sales funnel with just a few clicks of the mouse.”
ZeroUp requires a subscriber to have a Shopify store and domain, which it can be imposed upon. It also requires a subscriber to be connected to Ali Express, and also to be connected to Facebook Ads. With all these features installed than ZeroUp should work smoothly.
ZeroUp offers a full training and support Shopify System to subscribers which they must follow in order to achieve success according to Fred Lam´s claims for massive revenue and profits.
ZeroUp has introduced (in November 2017) a product line of jewellery called ShineOn which is a line of US manufactured jewellery similar in concept and quality to Department Store range but at more advantageous prices. There is no additional payment or commission payable to ZeroUp for this facility.
There were some problems with the rollout of the ZeroUp software system, and they had to implement an upgrade which was quite disruptive to users, all now resolved.
The Menu structure is shown in the diagram below, and Product Engine controls Products, advertisements, Orders and Re-stocking.
ZeroUp offers weekly training webinars, which started on 26th October 2017, and subscribers follow each week’s training with Fred Lam personally doing the presentations to his subscribers. Occasionally Fred Lam invites guest speakers to make presentations to his audience.
The following niches are available within ZeroUp, presently:
From initial testing and usage, OMS has yet to be convinced that ZeroUp provides all of the features and functionality which it claims to offer. Certainly, we are sceptical whether the fast implementation and results which are claimed by Fred Lam are achievable.
Recently we noticed that Fred Lam has teamed up with Robert Kyosaki and is offering a ZeroUp elite training under the company name Lurn. We have not tried this out but are a little apprehensive about the method of selling this product. You are encouraged to give information about yourself and agree to be open for an invitation to join a condensed 4-day training with Fred Lam, but the price is not specified up front. You receive a personal telephone call with your invitation, if you are a ¨chosen one¨then are hit with the cost of the training.
What you are offered is very intensive 4-day training with Fred Lam personally, so maybe that will make all the difference to whether you will be successful or not.
PRIMO3 is a software system and e-business in a box package which allows you to sell ebooks and e-courses and educational software as a subscriber to Tom Hua´s proprietary system. PRIMO3 uses all Private Label Rights for educational products such as e-books and e-courses, which are provided by Tom Hua, and you can supplement this with your own PLR´s if you wish. PRIMO3 is designed to be the next generation of E-business in a box.
Tom Hua is the Chinese owner and proprietor of a number of online businesses, including Hitech United Australia Pty Ltd, based in Victoria, and he has been extremely successful at internet marketing since he started his enterprises after emigrating to Australia for a university education.
I have heard Tom Hua speak publicly on two occasions since last year. He is a very amusing speaker who tells a very powerful story of his rise to wealth and success from his family´s humble start in China, from where he emigrated in the early 90´s, and made money in Australia, then New Zealand, and repaid all the loans which he had borrowed from his family members in China, in order to fund his education in computer science.
PRIMO3 is essentially an E-business in a box system for selling Tom Hua´s and subscribers products. It comprises several Packages which are as follows, as offered at the Andrew Reynolds Digital Nomads Summit 2018. Since the closure of that event terms and conditions of the offer may change, and the offer described may no longer be available.
Subscribers are able to offer more than 426 of Tom´s own information products, tools and resources to their own customers via social media connections.
There are also additional new and exclusive e-courses with Resell rights each and every month, for the next two years. Tom claims this to be the largest E-product Licence Collection in the world.
Subscribers receive a training course which explains step by step how to set up the PRIMO3 system. Subscribers are encouraged to take their time to work through the training, and there is support at every stage, including via a Facebook support group and a weekly Q&A session with Tom personally.
Tom claims the value of this package alone to be $57,250.
Every subscriber receives their own Cross-Platform website, graphics and sales letter. All the products and websites may be branded and edited to suit each individual subscriber.
It is hosted on a Privately Managed Amazon Web Service (AWS) for two years, claimed to be the best possible Cloud Computing Service, using the most advanced technology on the most reliable platform in the world.
This can be run with or without your own domain name.
Tom claims the value of this package to be $120 x 24 = $2,880.
Subscribers can sell their own products on his platform as a Publisher by leveraging the promotion power of thousands of affiliates worldwide. Subscribers can sell their own products in order to make a profit quickly and are also empowered by PRIMO3´s unique E-branding system allowing affiliates to join your backend program and promote your products like no other. As a result, your name and links are exposed to thousands of more customers overnight.
Tom claims the value of this package to be $100 x 24 = $2400.
An E-learning system where PRIMO3 takes you by the hand and helps you to put every component of your business in the right place, step by step, including an Elibrary of ever-expanding video tutorials and weekly Q&A sessions. Also a Private Facebook Support Group, where you can get help and learn more and more as your E-business in a box grows.
Tom claims the value of this package is $4,997.
The training videos are clear and concise and are backed up with text instructions so that you see step by step what to do, then have it written for you to also follow step by step.
At the end of each training module there is a knowledge quiz, so you can test yourself on what you have learned.
Subscribers are offered ONE CLICK PROMOTION to many social networks, or alternatively, to SET UP ONCE and let the system promote automatically to Facebook or Twitter, 24/7/365days per year.
Subscribers websites are delivered to users according to the device they use, PC, Tablet or Mobile, all delivered by the Cross-Platform Intelligent Cloud Web Service which gives your customers the best visiting experience regardless of their device type, therefore more sales!
Tom claims the value of this package is $250 x 24 = $6,000.
At the Digital Nomads Summit, Tom Hua offered other Mega Bonuses as well as the above packages, which may not be available after that event.
Unlimited support including a Uk local team, Tom claims the value is $1,000.
Private Facebook Group and weekly online Q&A sessions, Tom claims the value is $1,000.
WordPress pre-installed and integrated, Tom claims the value is $1,000.
5 x one-on-one screen shared support, Tom claims the value is $2,000.
PRIMO3 Resale licence, Tom claims the value is $5,000.
300 hours of Virtual Assistant, Tom claims the value is $9,000.
Free promotion to 200,000 people, Tom claims this is $priceless.
Surprise Bonus, Tom claims this is $priceless.
Tom Hua and Hitech United make every effort for their products and services to be accessible to most users. The cost structure is as follows:
A single payment of $3,777.
Alternatively subscribers can choose one of the following payment plan options:
$1,277 x 3 payments = $3,831.
$677 x 6 payments = $4062.
$337 x 12 payments = $4444.
$250 x 24 payments = $6000.
We are currently trying out the PRIMO 3 package from Tom Hua, and are about 2 months into the training course, which is now complete.
OMS recommends subscribers to consider the purchase of this E-business in a box from Tom Hua and Hitech United since it appears to provide excellent value for money when you consider all the bonuses which are included in the price.
The payment plans are also good value, with the possible exception of the 2-year payment plan which does seem to be over-priced at $250 per month (in our view $200 per month would be a fairer rate).

Understanding the sales process in principle is essential before being able to comprehend what is the online sales process or process of conversions.
A sales process flowchart or process map can be produced to represent the conversion process stages and can be adapted depending on the number of stages of the sales process.
A sales process template can be produced and adapted depending on whether there is a 5 steps sales process, or alternatively a 7 steps sales process (typical conversion process examples are shown below), or sometimes even more, up to 9 stages.
For example, simplified sales sequence examples are shown below:
An Example of the 5 Step Conversion Sequence is Shown Below:
An Example of a 7 Step Sales Sequence:
These diagrams explain that a purchaser may not purchase on the first or even second contact with a supplier, in fact it may take up to 7 or even 9 times before a prospective purchaser is ready to make a purchase, having researched the market, evaluated options, and familiarized themselves with your offer, and also most importantly built sufficient trust with your brand.
The definition of Sales Funnel is a Process into which a purchaser is enticed into the mouth or entrance to the funnel usually with a low(er) value product and is offered various other products as Up-Sells, Down Sells, or Cross-Sells before they exit the sales funnel.
The Sales Funnel usually starts with a Lead Magnet such as a free offer, for example, an ebook, or downloadable information, which is offered by a vendor in return for which a potential purchaser enters their email address. This initial transaction provides the contact details for the vendor to inform the potential purchaser of offers in which they may be interested.
The potential purchaser goes through four stages prior to concluding a purchase:
The definition Upsell means the offering of another higher value product in a Sales Funnel, usually after an introductory offer has been made by the vendor and accepted by a purchaser.
As an example of upselling, an Upsell in the context of a restaurant business would be the offer by MacDonalds Fast Food Restaurant of french fries and a shake, in addition to their basic offering of a burger.
The purpose of the Upsell is to increase the profit margin on any Sales Funnel. Usually, the initial or Doorbuster offer has little or no profit margin, whereas the Upsell has a greater profit margin. The net effect of the initial offer plus the Upsell is an increased profit margin.
The definition Downsell means the offering of another lower value product in a Sales Funnel, usually after an introductory offer has been made by the vendor and accepted by a purchaser, and a subsequent Upsell has been declined.
An example of a Downsell would be to offer an item such as a Low-Cost Personal Computer instead of a High Specification High-Cost Personal Computer. The purchaser´s credit card details have already been entered and the first purchase has been completed, the Downsell is a final attempt to increase the value of purchases before the purchaser exits the website.
The definition Cross Sell is the selling of an additional product or service to an existing customer.
So in this scenario, the customer is not new, there have already been sales previously so a certain level of Trust has been established between the vendor and purchaser.
The effort or Sales Intent is to increase the value of orders by selling additional items to the existing customer.
Here are some real examples of Sales Funnels Templates Showing ¨Doorbuster¨ offers, Upsells and Downsells which you can adapt and use as templates for your own sales funnels if you wish.
Sales Funnel Template Example 1
Sales Funnel Template Example 2
Sales Funnel Template Example 3
In order to succeed at making conversions, you need to fully understand the whole process of how to market your products and services, to the right audience, and how to encourage prospective purchasers to move from a state of unawareness about your product to sufficient trust to make the commitment to buy.
This is related to Branding, and this is the subject of a separate post.
Trustreach is a Facebook Messenger App which is used to engage with customers from their Facebook comments, market products and achieve conversions.
Trustreach has been developed and is marketed by Martyn Cook from the UK.
Martyn Cook is an entrepreneur, author and software developer who lives in the south of England.
Here is Martyn´s Facebook Page, from which you can see he has many followers and is keen to engage with people.
From the Trustreach Facebook Messenger App Home Page we have copied the following quotation:
¨TrustReach creates engaging viral posts that suck in comments and explodes reach¨.
Martyn cook has developed Trustreach Facebook Messenger App software and personally offers the product and demonstrates its capability. The following posts give the claims made about Trustreach software. If you watch the Demonstration video Martyn makes claims about massive increases in fan page comments when using his software.
Trustreach is one product from Martyn Cook, the others are TrustMSG, and Trustads: The suite of products work together to ENGAGE then MARKET then SCALE a business.
Trustreach costs from only $10 per month, so it is incredibly cheap to try out and see if it suits your business.
We are in the process of assessing the training provided by Trustreach.
We are in the process of assessing the technical support provided by Trustreach.
We have not actually used the Trustreach software as yet, but if the claims made about it are true, then it seems to be incredible value for money.
We are in the process of appraising Trustreach software at the moment and will issue an update within a week or two so as to give our opinion and recommendation about the use of this Customer Engagement Online Marketing Software.
OMS will update our post and give you our conclusion and recommendation about the Trustreach software within a week or two, as soon as we have finished our testing and appraisal of the software. Unfortunately, appraisal of this software has been delayed.
We are also reviewing AutoEngage software from Anthony Morrison, which offers similar functionality to Trustreach and you can see our review by clicking here:
Very often it is useful to post images within articles such as blog posts or pages, and it can be very expensive to obtain images from established websites such as Shutterstock. For that reason, we have investigated sources of Free Images, and have identified a few sites from which you can download such Free Images to help with your article creation. Sometimes the quality of such images may not be as good as you can expect from paid images, but they can fill the bill at least temporarily, and sometimes long-term, especially if you don’t have a budget for online marketing software images. You need to be careful before you download any images of the terms and licence conditions under which they may be used – beware!
We have investigated the marketplace for graphics available for use by individuals and have come across the following websites. The terms and conditions of use of these images vary, so you need to double check that these sites will suit your particular needs. You may have to purchase rights to use a particular picture if your specific needs demand that, especially if you are using such pictures commercially.
It is possible to find Free Images For Websites using Google, but searching will also give you Images which are subject to charges as well.
So you need to double check the ownership and rights for re-use of any images which you find as a result of a search online.
Here is the Google Help page which may assist in your search for Free Images.
In order to narrow down your search in Google Images go to the Advanced Search Under Settings, and note the following search filter where you can choose the categories of Usage Rights even including free to use, and modify even commercially.
Even if you find Free To Use Images you may be obliged to give them acknowledgement for their ownership
Under the Creative Commons Licencing Regulations, the only pictures which you can use without acknowledgement or attribution to their owners or creators are those in the Public Domain, which corresponds with Creative Commons Zero (CC0) level.
Otherwise for any other level of licence you need to give the author or creator or licence holder the appropriate level of attribution.
“Attribution – You must give appropriate credit, provide a link to the license, and indicate if changes were made. You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor endorses you or your use.”
An alternative source for Free to Use Stock Images is Wikimedia Commons which has a massive store of Images available to use by individuals, for non-commercial purposes.
The total scope of the Wikimedia sources and categories is explained on the homepage.
Pixabay is a very popular website for sourcing free to use images, and their stock size is massive at 1.3million images and videos.
Pexels very helpfully clarifies the legal position regarding its photographs for users.
There are lots of Sources Of Free Images For Websites to use for various purposes.
Before downloading any images you need to confirm on the basis of your required usage, what sort of licence you may require, and if necessary purchase the licence before you use the image.
Depending on the usage and type of licence which you decide on, then you may need to attribute the author, creator or licence holder.
AutoEngage is an online marketing software program produced and marketed by Anthony Morrison of Morrison Education, and its purpose is to automatically message people using Facebook Messenger. It is currently at beta/preliminary version and is being rolled out and released to a very limited number of chosen users, and it is not fully tested and marketed as yet. The software has been developed by and is currently being used by Anthony Morrison in his existing businesses, and has been demonstrated live onscreen to a webinar attended by us and shown and declared to be robust and reliable, but not fully and finally tested by Morrison Education.
AutoEngage works in the Social Media environment using Facebook Messenger is the Number 3 App used by people, and there are 1.2 billion Facebook Messenger Users worldwide. 11% of the world´s population have the Facebook Messenger App, and 64% of all Facebook Users have the Facebook Messenger app.
AutoEngage automatically responds to incoming messages on Facebook Messenger. It can also be set up to make Broadcasts of automated messages to customers, on the basis of the following criteria:
1. A set date and time.
2. A Step iteration, for example, sends a message 1 day after a customer subscribes, then further stepped communications, at preset time intervals.
3. Recurring Sequence of pre-determined activities.
Any of the above can be set up once only to run automatically thereafter, until re-programmed.
AutoEngage can also check how many of any planned sequence of messages were actually delivered as well.
Built in to the AutoEngage software is a FACEBOOK BUTTON, which a subscriber can hit, which allows them to grant access to their email address which they used to sign up to Facebook, without them having to re-write the email address. This means that the owner or operator of AutoEngage has access to potentially all email addresses of all Facebook Messenger users on their contact list.
So AutoEngage is building two online marketing contact lists, one contact list from Facebook Messenger, and one email list (with email addresses used by customers to sign up to Facebook) as well.
With the above capabilities, AutoEngage Social Media Software can be used to make broadcasts to all contacts on the Facebook Messenger and email lists, about forthcoming events.
Using Facebook Messenger, the AutoEngage message is almost certain to be received and read by the customer, because Facebook Messenger messages are opened to a level of 95%, which is more than 4 times the likely open rate for an email communication. There is a higher level of trust with Facebook Messenger users, and the AutoEngage messages are more personal than standardized email sequences.
What this means is that AutoEngage is a game changer in the online marketing software business because there is now no need to use Facebook or Google Advertisements, as a result of the following AutoEngage related actions:
ACTION 1: The user only needs to make Facebook Posts (not pay for Advertisements), and customers or prospective customers can Comment on, Share, or Like these posts.
ACTION 2: AutoEngage messages people directly, and they can Like or Comment, Share or Tag any of these messages.
There is a viral effect of these last two actions, regarding Facebook Posts and the growth as a result of Likes, Shares and comments to other customers, one step removed, which generates a lot more traffic.
AutoEngage software has only been released by Morrison Education to limited chosen audiences on a beta/preliminary version basis so that Anthony Morrison can work with these new users during the final phases of testing prior to full release to the marketplace.
The offer price when AutoEngage comes to the market is likely to be in the region of $1997, plus The Facebook Messenger Module for $197 per month, plus Agency Access (if required, for use on behalf of other customers) at $197 per month, plus Fan Pages at $67 each.
There is also to be an AutoEngage Software Academy course which is likely to be priced at $1997.
Anthony Morrison has a team of people developing software and providing technical back up and support to customers, so we believe that the support for AutoEngage will be as good as with all other Morrison Education software products.
OMS has not tested and used this Social Media software! We have seen a live presentation of the AutoEngage software by Anthony Morrison, and have made this report and evaluation on that basis.
Anthony Morrison offered a 60-day guarantee to the limited chosen audience to which he made his initial sales offer of the beta/preliminary version that he would buy back the software from any users who did not find a dramatic increase in traffic and sales if they properly implemented the use of the AutoEngage software. He is obviously very confident of the capability and reliability of the AutoEngage software.
From our assessment of this AutoEngage software, from the presentation and live demonstration given on the webinar, we would NOT recommend purchasing this product if you have the need for Facebook Messenger contact with your potential customers.
We suggest to evaluate along with other available similar packages on the market, to see which best suits your needs.
We have recently changed our view of Morrison products owing to a total lack of Return On Investment over the last 18 months or so, during which we have bought many of his products.
ClickFunnels is a popular and market leading Sales Funnel software program marketed by Russell Brunson and the ClickFunnels team based in Boise Idaho. Clickfunnels provides many standard template sales funnels as well as standard email templates and unique and powerful customer and traffic management software, in its enhanced form.
ClickFunnels is a modular type of Funnel Building system, Sales Funnels Made Simple, which enables a user to quickly build any type of Sales Funnel from pre-prepared (pre-coded) modules, which you just push together, drag and drop style.
You do not need to be able to use HTML code in order to use ClickFunnels, so it is easy for any average person with no coding experience to quickly and efficiently produce fully functioning Sales Funnels.
There are numerous standard templates and files provided within ClickFunnels which enable a user to quickly adapt the standard templates to their particular requirements for Landing Pages, Sales Pages, Thankyou Pages, etc etc.
Additionally there are two modules of powerful extra functionality which are not available in the basic ($99 per month) subscription, which are called Actionetics and Backpack.
Actionetics is a smart module which is available within ClickFunnels, which allows a premium subscriber ($297 per month) to send unlimited emails and have unlimited funnels. It deals with optimizing visitor and customer traffic to your website. It differentiates customers and visitors to your website based on their online behaviour and their individual profile and resources and capabilities. It acquires information about each visitor and builds a unique profile of every customer based on their own personal attributes, such as email address (initially) then age, gender, interests, as well as their social media profiles on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc and also even their income bracket.
Actionetics uses SMART ANALYTICS CODE embedded in order in the website in order to accumulate all the above information on each and every visitor to the website and gives each customer a PERSONAL RATING which assesses how much this customer is of value to your business. This customer database and categorization allows the formulation of unique sequences of contact to each customer including bespoke emails, postcards, and also personal telephone contact with target customers at particular times. It is incredibly powerful!
Backpack is another smart module within ClickFunnels, which is available to Premium subscribers ($297 per month) which analyzes the Shopping Trolley end of the business and works based on three rules:
This Backpack module is also extremely powerful!
There are two different rates of payment for usage of ClickFunnels on an ongoing basis, beyond the 30 day Free Trial.
The lowest Basic Subscription rate is $99 per month for the individual or small business user, with limited functionality, a pretty reasonable cost for Sales Funnels Made Simple.
The Premium Subscription rate for ClickFunnels with full functionality software including Actionetics and Backpack is available for $297 per month.
What is the difference between the lower and upper subscriptions, and why should I pay more?
There is a lot of difference between the lower and upper subscriptions to Clickfunnels in terms of functionality except that the higher level provides much more online storage of your funnels, for larger users.
You are limited to approximately 20 sales funnels with the lower subscription, whereas the higher subscription gives you unlimited storage, as well as enhanced software.
See above regarding the additional powerful modules Actionetics and Backpack, both of which are only available to Premium Subscribers, not to Basic Subscribers.
Competitors to ClickFunnels are Infusionsoft, and not only any other Funnel Building software packages but also to some extent ClickFunnels covers the functionality of email management software packages such as Unbounce, LeadPages, MailChimp, AWeber, Hubspot. You really need to define your precise Clickfunnels templates and SEO and customer management needs from the software, then match it with whether you need the Basic or Premium subscription with the Actionetics and Backpack modules. there may be more than one possible software architecture to solve your problems.
Because ClickFunnels is widely used in the online marketing software industry it is possible to easily interface with other users and Sales Funnel authors. We have specific experience of adopting sales funnels which have been pre-prepared by another author and downloading them and storing them in ClickFunnels for our use.
ClickFunnels provides good training on webinars which you can join weekly, or by viewing pre-recorded training videos. We have tried out and used this training over several months and it is very comprehensive and thorough and can improve your technical capability at funnel building.
Additionally, ClickFunnels offers intensive Bootcamp training at their Boise Idaho offices, but these can be expensive at around $10,000 to receive training to become a ClickFunnels Certified user. Having said that you can receive recommendations for consultancy commissions which can quickly make back the money you have invested in the training course. There is no shortage of customers wanting to use ClickFunnels.
ClickFunnels provides excellent online customer support and we have not had any irresolvable problems during the time we have been using the software. The response is usually provided within a few hours of raising them during normal US working hours.
We have been using ClickFunnels, Sales Funnels Made Simple, for more than 6 months now and are very impressed with its ease of use and capability to quickly produce any type of sales funnel from the numerous templates which are available.
The cost of ClickFunnels is $99 per month at its most basic level, then $297 per month for the full functionality version, so the cost can be economical and viable even for small businesses.
