5 Reasons to Use Clickfunnels for Ecommerce

Thinking about using clickfunnels for ecommerce?

If so, you’re a smart marketer.

Using Clickfunnels for eCommerce and Shopify businesses is one of the most over-looked opportunities for this year.

Here’s 7 reasons why you should consider using Clickfunnels for your eCommerce business.

1) Increase Average Order Value with “funnels”

Example of upsell page

Most e-commerce sites just have a product page, order page and thank you page. But when you work so hard to get a new customer, you need to maximize your average order value. And that’s where “sales funnels” come in. Clickfunnels allows you to build a series of pages to sell more stuff.

For example, instead of the traditional e-commerce 3-step checkout process like:
Product page > order page > thank you page

You can add upsell pages into the mix like this:
Product page > order page > Upsell page  >thank you page

One Shopfunnel.io customer who did this, increased their average order value from 34.99 to 47.89 from this simple addition!

2) More Unique Marketing Campaigns

Example of free plus shipping offer

Using clickfunnels also empowers you to create and launch more unique marketing campaigns!

For example, you can create a “Free plus shipping” promotion – that your customers have likely never seen.

Once someone opt’s in to the “free plus shipping” offer, they are now on your email list. Or you can even upsell them another product on the backend.

The options are truly endless, and as you can image, you can get really creative with your offers.

This gives you an advantage over your competitors because they are likely not running these types of promotions yet.

But that wont be true forever — so take advantage now!

Clickfunnels has simple, built in analytic tools that allow you to track and increase your conversion rate.

The e-commerce industry average conversion rate is around 2%.

But with clickfunnels, we’ve seen upwards of 3 or 4%!

This is likely because clickfunnels visual editor makes it easier to A/B test landing pages to improve conversions over time.
