I am going to show you the best templates for high-converting internet marketing sales funnels and how to build them at a reasonable price.

A sales funnel is a series of steps that drives visitors to a conversion (such as a sale, a sign-up to a newsletter, opening an account, an opt-in, etc…). The right marketing sales funnel template is incredibly important, and will significantly increase conversions from your normal web traffic.

1) “Free Plus Shipping” Funnel

This is a hugely successful template that perfectly and simply implements the idea of a “squeeze page”, in this case promoting a free offer for the price of shipping only. In reality, the cost of the item is actually included in the shipping cost. The item needs to

  • be either cheap enough to generate a profit
  • or be able to radically decrease shipping costs by offering and selling 3 or 5 pieces of the same item (bundle)
  • cool enough to prompt people to share it and possibly make it go viral
  • have an upsell/cross sell of a complementary product that goes with the original offer

Part of the idea is the statistical fact that if you display several options, a certain percentage of people will opt for the bundle/take the upsell, thereby increasing profits.

Having an online store is a great way to sell, however it has some disadvantages.

  • You have to list a huge number of products, some of them will sell, some won’t.
  • There are too many choices and this decreases conversion rate.

As a general rule, there are always products that sell an products that don’t. In your store maybe you will have 1 out of 50 products that sells, but the ratio could be better or worse.

If you use paid ads, only those click on your ad who are already interested, because there is only one product (plus an upsell) per funnel.

This is how the the Free Plus Shipping system works for the customer:

  1. Person clicks on the Facebook ad that promotes that one product, because they are interested.
  2. The customer lands on your landing page (see above). They only have one product to buy. There are no distractions, recommendations or ads to lower the conversion rate.
  3. If the visitor decides to buy, he’s asked to fill out his information. There is no redirection to a payment processor or lengthy checkout. The customer goes straight to a secure order form like this:secure order form
  4. As a bonus, you can offer your new customer a one-click upsell. Here is an example:

2) Automated Sales Webinar Funnel

This high-converting sales funnel template attracts users to sign up for a webinar. Page layout has been highly optimized in terms of content block placement, short and punchy calls-to-action, and a clean, attractive design.

Once users sign-up (either via pop-up or button), they will be redirected to a Thank You page containing a countdown, webinar calendar/schedule, info, and most importantly an opportunity to upsell.

This funnel also contains the webinar Broadcast and Replay pages, as well as optimized Upsell, Order Form and Order Confirmation pages (7 pages in total). All can be customized to your business. If you have a great short video to showcase your product, this is the perfect funnel to make it convert into sales and upsells!

3) Online Course Funnel

This is a sales funnel template specifically designed for selling online courses. This 5-page funnel starts with

  • an optimized Squeeze page in which the user can sign up for a free offer,
  • then leads to an Upsell page
  • with Ordering, Payment, and Order Confirmation pages.

As part of the online course focus, it includes a membership area page with training courses.

4) Online Store Coupon Funnel

This is a super simple funnel designed specifically to increase conversions for online store owners.

The main page advertises a coupon deal that offers a discounted product in exchange for the customer’s details to open a free account on your store. It also includes a Thank You page and PPC Opt-In, and funnels people to your storefront .

This funnel uses the “Urgency Principle” highly effectively. It uses Scarcity (the page offers a limited number of vouchers and updates the number as it decreases in real time) rather than Urgency (a countdown until an offer expires).

Scarcity and Urgency are among the most effective tools for inducing rapid action on the part of a customer. When there’s limited numbers of a product its perceived value increases. This principle is evokes the powerful emotion of fear – in this case the fear of missing out on a good deal.

5) Opt-In Funnel

This is a short, focused funnel highly optimized for collecting sign-ups from website visitors, and can be connected to automated email services.
