The Importance of Marketing Funnel Strategy

Your marketing funnel strategy is the intentional pathway you create to guide potential clients through your content, nurturing them along the way and eventually leading them to invest in something of higher value from you. If you’re offering a course for several hundred dollars or more, you need more than just a sales page. 

Here’s why a robust marketing funnel strategy matters!

The Power of Consistency

The journey to success lies not just in the quality of your sales page alone but in the effectiveness of your marketing funnel strategy. This blog explores why a well-planned funnel strategy in Kajabi is vital for your spiritual coaching brand and how consistency can make all the difference.

Trust Comes First in the Funnel

In the online world, selling advice or courses is highly competitive. You must build trust with your potential clients before they consider working with you. 

Do you notice that when you follow someone on social media and then meet them, you feel like you already know them? This only happens with people who actively share their lives. So, share your life, knowledge, and values, and they will begin to pay more attention.  

You can invite them to free workshops, classes, or live training sessions so they can see you in action. Help them with their questions. Listen. Then, tell them about the solutions you provide to help them.

Focus on Authentic Relationships 

A significant part of your funnel should aim to bring people into your “inner circle” where you can keep them engaged with your weekly content, continuing to share your knowledge and experiences. If you need ideas on how to elevate the strength of your brand, check out these 5 Updates for a Strong Brand and Online Presence.

Present with Purpose

For programs with larger ticket items exceeding a few hundred dollars, you’ll need to pitch an offer to them effectively. It’s more than merely presenting your course on your website. It involves putting together a compelling offer and sharing it with a select group of people, your “inner circle.” 

You are dedicating space, energy, and strategy to making them a direct offer rather than relying on passive sales pages.

Value over Perfection

Obsessively perfecting your sales page isn’t the most effective use of time. You must sell it before potential clients even reach the sales page by focusing on creating valuable content and building a community of followers who follow you because you consistently provide value for free. 

You can use platforms like YouTube, TikTok, and Facebook groups to connect with your audience, demonstrating your expertise and establishing trust.

The Consistency Factor

Consistency is the secret ingredient that holds your funnel strategy together – it holds everything together. The reliability and predictability of your content and interactions nurture relationships and leads. 

Marketing Funnel Strategy

So, for spiritually-based brands, the marketing funnel strategy and the consistency in your approach can truly set you apart. Don’t be overly concerned with perfecting your sales page; instead, invest your efforts in creating content, building relationships, and nurturing your audience

Success comes from your knowledge and ability to connect with and inspire those you aim to serve.

Kajabi Event Countdown Timer

Kajabi Event Countdown Timer

Kajabi is an all-in-one platform to run your digital course and coaching business. It’s a leader in the market because you can run your business without using third-party services.  On Kajabi, build your website and your sales funnels with landing pages, opt-in forms, checkouts, bundles of products, and even countdown timers. It’s even possible to trigger email sequences and other automation. We are Kajabi experts and can help you with any questions you have!

I’ve heard complaints about it not being possible to create campaigns in Kajabi. How it would be so nice to group the emails for a launch or special event. OK, it’s not just that I had heard it, but I had said it! One day it smacked me in the head and my lightbulb turned on. Since I’d been part of a few of these discussions when I was new to using Kajabi, I know there are more people that do not realize how to group these emails together so I’ve got to share! 

I used the keyword above….
Events!

Events are under the marketing tab in Kajabi. 

 

So why would we want to use Events?

I happened into events because I needed a countdown timer and from there I learned how useful they are. 

When you would like to send a triggered sequence of emails off without having to set up a bunch of separate emails, you can use events. 

First, you’ll need to get people registered for your event, which you can grant through an offer, by an opt-in form, or anywhere there is automation. Once they are registered, they will get all the emails set up for the event. 

The first one can be set up for “at the time of registration” and they’ll get it as soon as they are granted the event registration through any automation. 

Setting up your other emails is easy using the time filters provided, like sending one 4-days before the event to remind everyone of the plan, or an upsell opportunity 2-days after the event.

The Flow

So set up your event, and your offer or opt-in, and get that countdown timer into your landing page. 

The countdown can disappear when it is over or you can have Kajabi redirect to a new landing page for the next phase of your launch.

The more people who complete your program can tell others what a difference you have made in their life!

Let us help you make it easier for them to complete each module and be your advocate.

What’s behind a lead magnet?

What’s behind a lead magnet?

If you’re an entrepreneur, you’ve been told you need a lead magnet. Leads lead to clients, but it’s an easy thing to procrastinate on because there are several parts to it. Some people have more trouble coming up with an idea for a lead magnet, and some are overwhelmed by the mechanics behind the scenes of the lead magnet, aka freebie. In this article, we’ll explore the ideas behind a lead magnet.

 

You need a lead magnet

Here’s a quick review of why you need a lead magnet – it’s how you build your audience. 

A lead magnet is like a handshake that you have out in the world to meet new people. It’s a bartering tool, exchanging your knowledge for an email address. With this bartering chip, you are building a list of warm leads. This is a list you own and something you should continuously be working to grow. 

Those who sign up for your lead magnet are getting a free sample of your work. It is a valuable tool to introduce yourself.

 

Topic

One of the main reasons to procrastinate is you just don’t know what topic to focus on. This isn’t something that needs to be the answer for everything, and it shouldn’t. When you think of the one thing that each of your clients need – what do you think of? It can be anything from something that a beginner in your target market should know or it could be a sample of something that you teach on a larger scale in one of your courses. 

Grab an idea and run with it! 

Type

Where do we run to? It’s time to decide how to present it. There are a wide variety of media options, but how best can you convey the topic to your audience? Should it be written or wold it be best in a video? Can it be a checklist or a report? 

Here are some ideas for your lead magnet:

  • Checklist
  • Educational video(s)
  • Webinars
  • Templates
  • Tutorial
  • Consultation
  • eBook

Time to Barter!

OK, you have the topic and you know what media you are going to create. Let’s dig into what you need on the backend. 

Number 1 is that you need an email marketing tool and if you don’t have one, there are thousands to choose from. To get started, a great option is MailerLite. It’s free up to 1,000 subscribers with a great range of functionality. 

In the simplest form creation of a lead magnet, you can do it all with just MailerLite. When you pair MailerLite with WordPress you can build a great experience for your lead with a full landing page, signup form, and automated emails, which can also be done in all-in-one platforms like Kajabi 

Here are the common pieces in play behind the scene of a lead magnet. 

  • Landing page
  • Signup form
  • Value page
  • Email notification
  • Nurture email(s)

 

The Flow

The overall process goes like this. 

  1. You’ll want to build a landing page with an opt-in form. This page needs to give short and descriptive outcomes that your work provides, how this valuable media fits into your process, and what return they will receive when give you their email. 
  2. The submission of the form redirects your visitor to the value page, the place where they get the return on giving you their email address. The form submission also triggers an email notification to make sure they have the link to get back to the valued media.
  3. Over the next few week, they’ll receive automated nurture emails asking if they have any questions, along with other helpful pieces of information. These can be existing blog posts or new insights.

What’s next?

Build it and they will come!

As I’ve mentioned, there are many ways to build it out. Maybe soon, I’ll document how to build it out on various services.

When do I use a Landing page instead of a Website Page?

When do I use a Landing page instead of a Website Page?

When do I use a Landing page instead of a Website Page?

Yay, you’re ready to make some new pages for your website! But, when you head off into the Website section of Kajabi, there are several options. 

kajabi pages

Side note: You can stop and choose a theme for your Website in Website> Design if you have not. This theme doesn’t have to live on all your pages. You can choose a different layout for your landing pages with no relation to the theme. 

Website vs. Landing Pages

Ah! But why are there two page options in the first place? Why have website pages and landing pages? 

Great question! Think of website pages as the core, or backbone, of your Website. These are the pages usually found in the navigation; they are often linked to each other.

Examples of common website pages are 

  • Home
  • About
  • Services/Offerings
  • Blog (list)
  • General contact/lead collection

Landing pages are a little different; they are usually product or project-specific. These are the sales pages, the opt-ins, the thank you pages – the sales funnel pages. Of course, if you have any other need for a one-off page, that would fit here, too! 

Examples of landing pages can be used for (but not limited to)

  • Opt-in pages
  • Sales pages
  • Thank you pages
  • Test home pages
  • Video pages
  • Freebie offerings
  • Resource pages
  • Targeted 404 pages

Pipelines

There is one other option in the Website > Pages section in Kajabi, pipeline pages. I was caught off-guard by this when I started using Kajabi, so let’s make sure you understand how it works. 

First, let’s hit on pipelines – these are your marketings/sales funnels. Located in Marketing > Pipelines, pipelines serve as your visual workflow of events. You can add sales pages and opt-ins, trigger email sequences, and present offers here to set your flow into motion. 

Do I have to make all my pages in this Website> Pages > Pipeline section to use them in pipelines? I don’t see an ‘add page’ option!

So, you don’t go to the Pages > Pipelines to create pages; you dive right in and build a pipeline from this page. From there, you can create a landing page from within the pipeline setup or choose an existing landing page.    

Note: To edit an existing pipeline, you must go to Marketing > Pipelines.

I hope that helps! Let me know your other questions on using Kajabi!
