Today’s discussion is a continuation of one previously had about marketing funnels and ways to gain a larger audience and convert them to customers. Today’s guest had a job but left it to pursue his passion – he sold T-shirts at first, and he had a failing website, then he discovered ‘Clickfunnels’ which changed everything. He is Trey Lewellen; Trey is also the originator of the tactical Lumitact flashlight – which became a huge success (with the help of a funnel).
The entrepreneur and the Internet
The internet has leveled the playing field for entrepreneurs because like Trey who started with a laptop and two pages of a website – everyone can start. Trey began with a platform that was not sustainable because he did not have a good foundation – a system which captured buyer information but then he switched to a two-page website using Clickfunnel, and that was a huge success.
How many pages does a site need to have?
Many entrepreneurs often ask, “how many pages should a website have?” Trey was successful with only two pages.
Clickfunnel – how long does it take, how much does it cost?
If an entrepreneur wanted to start something today – there is a fourteen-day free trial, and the subscription is about 97 dollars per month. For Trey, the physical items sold were items from Amazon.
What is Clickfunnel?
Clickfunnel is a dream come true to practically anyone trying to get online because it’s just dragging and dropping windows, and you’re up and running within a day. Once you’re familiar with it, a nice looking funnel – order form, thank you page, sales letter, upsell, down sell – things like that can be done in a few hours; so it’s efficient, quick, plus it looks amazing and professional. In layman’s terms – this can be set up by someone who knows nothing about setting up sites.
Trey has created a blog around mastering the metrics of Clickfunnel – it’s one thing to put a product up, but it’s also important to understand what makes a funnel work. The people who are successful online know the mathematics behind the funnel – what are the costs per customer, what are the profit margins, what are the costs of goods and what are the upsells and down sells?
