Clickfunnels and Shopify are both great platforms for ecommerce. Consider the benefits each platform provides, and think about what each platform does. Clickfunnels creates a simplistic sales funnel, that allows customers to easily get from the landing page to the shopping cart. Shopify hosts a detailed online store that can hold plenty of options.
Think about Clickfunnels as an extension of your online store. Clickfunnels can’t do everything the online store does, but it definitely makes things run more smoothly. Each platform is great on their own, but together they could create the ultimate e-commerce solution.
Let’s go over how Clickfunnels can drive your sales up and improve the efficiency of your online store. The following steps are key to promoting and supporting your online business on Shopify through Clickfunnels.

Step Two: Choose A Product
Select your money-making product, or a product you hope to turn into a money-making product.
Your Shopify likely features multiple great purchasing options, but to fully benefit from the extension of a Clickfunnel you will need to select just one, great item.
This item will be featured on your Clickfunnels’ landing page. The page should teach potential customers about the product. It should include a video, a few reviews, some pictures, and a description of the product. Anything relevant that may sway the visitor into a purchase.
Your Clickfunnels landing page should lead the visitor to purchase that product. That’s not all it should do though. It should also assist with marketing the product, regardless of whether the product is purchased. Clickfunnels will also market the product through the email addresses it collects.
Step Three: Upsell, Upsell, Upsell

Create a buyers’ opt in page to get the consumer to come back and purchase more. This is great for informing previous customers of new items, sales, and promotions
Step Four: Market the Product Via Clickfunnels Link
Use the link to your Clickfunnels landing page to market the product. The page itself should lead people to want to purchase that product, but that isn’t possible unless your marketing to the right audience.
To make sure you are marketing to the correct audience you will need to determine your niche. This will allow you to reach out to the right people and include the most necessary information that is personal, and relevant to the people that would be interested in that niche.

The Clickfunnels landing page will be most effective when the correct audience is reviewing it. If the product you are selling is relevant to the person viewing it, you are much more likely to achieve a sale.
Step Five: Let Clickfunnels Do It’s Work

Use the sales funnel to upsell and direct traffic to your Shopify store. Follow up with marketing and thank you emails. It’s pretty simple once you’ve got the system set up and the links shared in the appropriate places.
Once everything is set up, your only job is to generate the traffic. Once you find the potential customers and direct them to the Clickfunnels’ landing page, your only job is to let the sales funnel do what it was meant to do.
