3 Pages Every Funnel Must Have
Action Breeds Success!
Only Through Action will Anything Happen for You!
That may sound obvious, but many people never get anywhere because they don’t decide to act.
Some will over analyze a problem. They will over think it. Spending way to much time trying to find the RIGHT solution.
Sometimes the solutions aren’t even that far apart. They are all similar and that makes it even more difficult. What do you base the decision on?
Don’t FREEZE. Don’t become paralyzed. Inaction will not get you anywhere…
A couple examples…
Recently I was alerted by someone that there was a publication that was looking for Blogs… I don’t even remember exactly what it was for (A sign of being to busy…)…
But all I needed to do was e-mail the reason my Blog should be included… What makes this Blog special? And then send it out to see if they will except it. Literally a 10 minute process…
Well I could have froze. I could have put it off. I could have been lazy and just did it tomorrow which will never happen as it gets buried under a ton of new stuff to do…
What did I do?
I acted. I immediately typed up that e-mail and sent it!
Will anything come of it? Maybe, maybe not, but it might!
Another example is I see a lot of people trying to decide what to do with thisAdwords Affiliate Policy. I would hate to see people get so caught up in analyzing the problem that they never act… You can ask questions. You should gather enough information to know all your options. But once you do, don’t just look at what you’ve gathered. Pick something and Act!
You have to decide to Just do it! You may fail sometimes. The action may not produce good results…But it will provide results. Even if you just learn from the experience, you sit in a better situation than you were yesterday…
Again, this doesn’t mean don’t analyze anything. You have to know you’re making the right decision. You have to know all your options, but once you do, make the move. Start the ball rolling.
Motivation doesn’t come first. You can’t sit and wait to be motivated… Action comes first! Act and the motivation will follow…
So look at your problem, gather enough information to make a choice about the solution, and then Act on it…
Action breeds Success…

3 Pages Every Funnel Must Have—And What To Include On Them!
Confused about how exactly sales funnels work? You’re not alone. In fact, that’s the number one reason small business owners say they can’t get their funnels set up—they simply don’t know what to include where.
Here’s the easy answer: At the very least, your sales funnel needs three pages.
This one obviously comes first. You might call it a landing page, or in the case of a free opt-in, a squeeze page. It serves one purpose—to get the reader to take action. Whether that’s to buy a product or offer up their email address in exchange for a free gift, this is the gateway into your funnel. Everything that follows depends on this page, so you want to be sure you:
Include a clear call to action—“Buy Now” or “Click here to download this report for free”
Eliminate distractions—that means no links to other websites or even a navigation bar
Address the readers’ pain points and how your offer provides the solution
Here’s where we ask the reader to confirm their intent. For a sales funnel, this confirmation page might actually be your checkout page. It’s where they enter their payment details. For a free offer, it’s simply the page your email management system directs them to next. It’s a holding page, if you will, while you wait for them to confirm their email address.
If you’re setting up a free funnel, this page has great power—and you don’t want to waste it!
Here is where you can offer an upset, remind people to follow you on social media, and give them a peak at your other products and services.
Remember, though, that they will only see this page once, so don’t put anything here that they will need to refer back to. That’s what the thank you page is for.
Thank You Page
This is where they actually collect their downloadable item, or get information about how your product will be delivered.
Like the confirmation page, this is valuable real estate, so you want to be sure you use it wisely. In addition to the downloadable item your customer just purchased (or opted in for) you also want to showcase your other offers—especially those at a slightly higher price point. Here’s why: the person looking at this page is a hot prospect. He or she is in a buying mood. You want to be sure to take advantage of that by putting your most relevant offers on this page. To encourage buying, consider including:
A limited time offer—scarcity sells, so if you can legitimately limit sales to a few hours/days or number of units, then this is the place to do so.
A “no brainer” coupon offer—an insider’s only deal can be a powerful motivator, especially if it’s a fantastic price.
Extra bonuses—give them access to additional products/services if they buy through your link on that page. These should be bonuses that aren’t advertised on the public sales page for that product. Again—insider’s deals are motivating!
Putting together a sales funnel isn’t complicated—or at least it doesn’t have to be. As your business grows and you have more products to offer, you can expand your funnel to include more upsells and downsells, but for now, this simple setup is really all you need.
