Short company description: ClickFunnels is the market leader in sales funnels.
What is Click Funnels?
So, Click Funnels is a salesman platform. Instead of using a traditional website, the idea is to create a sales funnel to really guide your customer from the first meeting with you all the way through a sale or a lead or whatever it is you’re trying to accomplish.
What are three pieces of software that you find important that a customer use if they’re doing marketing themselves?
Definitely Click Funnels depending on what it is that you’re trying to accomplish. If you’re doing e-commerce, I’m a huge proponent of Shopify as well. It’s just very easy to use especially as a vendor. I’ve also worked a lot with Collabio.
What social media platform do you think is your biggest tool and why?
Definitely Facebook. Facebook has had so much momentum for so long that there’s just a really large audience on it. So it makes it easier to get in front of the people that you’re looking for. It has a broader audience base.
What is the best advice you would give someone that wants to start their own company and grow it?
The two biggest reasons most companies fail has to do with a lack of money and a lack of knowledge. The money thing is easier to overcome than people think, especially now with the ability to market online. It’s a lot cheaper than it used to be especially if you know what you’re doing. I think the biggest thing that I would tell people is to find someone who is doing it, who’s doing it well, who is succeeding at what you’re trying to do, or something similar, and figure out how to learn from them.
