Hi, welcome to funnelmoose.com. In this article, I’m going to show you how to integrate ConvertKit with ClickFunnels in just 7 simple steps complete with illustrations. This is a very simple process and should take less than five minutes.
As you’ll no doubt be aware, ClickFunnels is the best platform for sales funnels. You’ll also know (or maybe you don’t) that only 2% of visitors to your funnels or website convert to paying customers in their first visit. That’s why you capture their email address and use a follow-up sequence of emails to retarget them. That’s why you need to use an email autoresponder in your business.
ClickFunnels does have its own email autoresponder service, called ‘Follow-Up Funnels’, however, this feature is only available on their $297 per month Platinum plan. If you’re on the ClickFunnel Basic plan and only need an email autoresponder over and above what features the Basic plan offers you, that extra $200 per month really is an awful lot of money!
Luckily there are other email autoresponders that you can integrate ClickFunnels with in order to keep your costs down and allow you to collect customers’ email addresses from your landing pages and sales funnel.
ConvertKit is one of the very best marketing automation services.
How Much Does ConvertKit Cost
ConvertKit and ClickFunnels are an obvious pairing because of this free plan.
Just like their rival AWeber, ConvertKit has a no credit card required free plan for a contact list of up to 1,000 subscribers:
Unlike AWeber, the ConvertKit free plan doesn’t allow you to build an email automation sequence, but it does give you 1,000 subscribers whereas AWeber only gives you 500.
The ConvertKit Creator plan is what you’ll need if you’re wanting to create an email automation sequence.
This plan starts with a no credit card required 14-day trial and free migration service to switch everything over from your current autoresponder.
You also have the option of qualifying for the ConvertKit discount if you pay in full for a year:
ConvertKit Creator Pro
One thing I do like about ConvertKit, also AWeber, is they both offer a 30-day refund policy. You can read about that in the ConvertKit documentation.
ConvertKit also provides you with two completely free training courses to get you started in email marketing. The first course gets you started and finds you your first 100 subscribers, while the second course gets you a digital product launch and starts earning you your first online dollars.
