More and more e-commerce merchants are finding out that it’s a great way to create great, feature rich e-commerce sites. However, in order to evaluate whether ClickFunnels is the way to go for you, there are a few things you should know. You need to know what a sales funnel is, what sales funnel stages are, and what sales funnel websites involve.
What is a sales funnel?
To understand what ClickFunnels is and why it is so useful, it’s important to understand sales funnels.
The concept of sales funnels has become integral to all digital marketing professionals. While there is a huge amount that goes into creating, implementing and activating a fully fledged sales funnel, the concept itself is pretty straightforward. Simply put, the perfect sales funnel would work like a literal funnel you might find in your kitchen. The difference is that a sales funnel focuses on funneling visitors and potential customers through a “buyer’s journey” until they (ideally) make a purchase.
A sales funnel works by funneling visitors (prospective buyers) through a buyer’s journey that eventually leads them to make one or multiple (one click upsell) purchases from your business. It takes them through different sales funnel stages, from awareness to interest, to decision, to action (more on that later). In short, a sales funnel is an implemented strategy that attracts visitors to your high risk e-commerce site and converts them to customers.

Sales funnel stages
As a high risk merchant, there are already plenty of obstacles you have to overcome. At E-Commerce 4 IM, we offer high risk merchant accounts and credit card processing, making it easy for you to accept payments online for your products. However, accepting credit card payments is only part of the package (albeit a crucial part) when it comes to selling products online. By using the sales funnel concept, you’ll have a more complete approach to selling online.
What are the different stages of a sales funnel?
All sales funnels consist of different stages, corresponding to the different stages of the buyer’s journey your customers and visitors go through. These consist of:
As you can tell, there’s quite a lot that goes into a sales funnel. In the awareness stage, you have marketing, advertising, and setting up your website to show up in search engines. Interest, decision, and action all have separate, yet overlapping elements. Such as creating landing pages and web pages designed to increase the likelihood of people being enticed by what you have to offer – and so on.
Challenges of implementing a sales funnel
The first challenge for you is to create and implement these elements. The second challenge is to make all of these aspects work smoothly together. That means a lot of coding, development, and testing. At worst it could potentially take weeks or months to get it all working as it should. This is where ClickFunnels can become a godsend.
