In this video, I show you how to setup a ‘confirmation email’ in ClickFunnels if you are using the Actionetics within ClickFunnels to send out the emails.
If you still haven’t seen my video on the SMTP setup and want to setup your autoresponders, check out this video here:
Basically ClickFunnels doesn’t have a function that just sends out a ‘confirmation email’ – so what we need to do is first send people a separate email asking them to go to a DIFFERENT ClickFunnels page we setup where they can then confirm their email.
Only THEN after they enter their email once again will they be added to the list.
So compared with third party autoresponders like GetResponse or AWeber, the process is a bit more tedious as it requires people to enter their email twice and go to a separate page to confirm their email, rather than have the basic confirmation button in emails you would see in the third party autoresponders.
If you are concerned that all the information people set up the first time will be lost, such as the comments/address/phone number/etc… do not worry since that information is stored the first time someone enters the details on your optin page.
So the first thing we need to do is create another page in your funnel, one for the actual confirmation page, and another as a thank you confirmation page.
In this video, I just picked a random template to save time and you can play around with the design on your own time, but you would basically just write something like ‘hey, please confirm your subscription by entering your email down below’ on that confirmation page, and just thank them for confirming on the confirmation thank you page.
If you are currently using any third party autoresponders and instead want to just use the ClickFunnels Actionetics, make sure to remove those integrations from your pages.
Next, you would need to go to your actual very first optin page in your funnel where people sign up the first time, and send out an email to the clients that sign up.
That’s right – rather than adding them to a list right away, you need to first send them an email asking them to confirm their subscription.
In that email, you would give them a link to the CONFIRMATION optin page, and ask them to enter their email once again.
Then on THIS page is where you would actually add people to the list if you have a ClickFunnels autoresponder setup.
That way, when people enter their email again, they would officially be added to the list.
If users add a different email here then when they first signed up, then the new email will be added to the list, but the old email will contain their information that they added on your first optin page, so just keep that in mind.
In this video, I also did a ‘test drive’ and showed you around while I actually entered my email and opened it to see what it looks like.
So if you want to see what it ultimately looks like, make sure to check out the video and see how the setup looks.
