I’m always a little sceptical when something is free. Nothing is ever really free. There’s always a catch. So when I came across the Clickfunnels Affiliate Bootcamp, I had my guard up. I’d heard that the course was fantastic and have read some positive stories in a few Affilaite groups on Facebook, but you always wonder.
But hey, It’s free, so why not have a look.
So after watching Russell’s intro video for the training, I signed up for the bootcamp (you can do the same > here <)
So why is the Clickfunnels Affiliate Bootcamp free?
Simply put, if you’re a better affiliate, then they win because you’ll drive more good leads to their products. When you make money, they make money. And Clickfunnels is the fastest growing, non VC backed software company in the world, largely due to their network of affiliates so they must be doing something right!
The course has gone through some changes since I first signed up, and they have added quite a bit of new content providing a super thorough guide to affiliate marketing.
The idea is to bring in one new Clickfunnels member a day for 100 days. In theory, most people should be able to retire in 100 days if this can be achieved. Here’s how:
A standard Clickfunnels subscription is $97 per month
Clickfunnels pay you 40% commission, which is a recuring income of $38.80 monthly
If you can signup a new subscriber daily, then after 100 days, you’ll have generated a monthly income of $3,880
In reality, it doesn’t quite work like that, but it’s close. Firstly people sign up for a free 14 day trial. Depending on where your trial subscribers come from, there may be a good percentage that don’t stay on after 14 days. You might need to find 2 or 3 trial signups to get one that sticks around.
Also, people aren’t going to stay forever. Some people won’t use the service and might cancel after a month or so, but some will intergrate the product into their business and stay for years. So once you’ve hit 100 subscribers, you’ve still need to keep marketing to find new subscribers. (And why wouldn’t you anyway? If you can get to 100, then why not go to 200, 300 & more?)
What do they teach in the Clickfunnels Affiliate Bootcamp?
At a high level, the basic concept that they teach is:
Determine who your ideal customer is, and define their avatar. Who are they?where are they? How old are they? What are their interests, hobbies, etc.
Build a funnel that is relevant to your customer, and use Facebook ads to reach them
Let Clickfunnels marketing team upsell them to more expensive products and the Clickfunnels monthly subscription
And remarket to them yourself using email to sell other products
Rinse & repeat
As you can see, there is a massive amount of content that is drip fed over 66 days. And it can be quite overwhelming. Most of the content is in video format, and in some cases there can be a few hours of video for a single day.
But it’s great content. Alot of it is actually recordings from live events that have been taken from other training products that Clickfunnels normally charge $1000-$2000 to access, so it really is worth taking some time to immerse yourself in the content.
You get step by step instructions on proven techniques to promote the core Clickfunnels product with the $97/m recurring subscriptions, as well as other products in the Clickfunnels suite including training courses, live events like Funnel Hacking Live and the 10x Growth Conference, webinars, and their books. You’ll also get done for you funnels and pre-written emails to send out once you start growing a list.
So is the Clickfunnels Affiliate Bootcamp really Free?
Well, yes… and no.
The course is absolutely free. There’s loads of great content that would cost you $1000’s elsewhere. The Facebook ads training is first class, as is the copywriting education.
The course is designed around you using Clickfunnels yourself. If you want to use their done-for-you funnels, you’ll need a Clickfunnels subscription. As well as that, you’re going to need an email service like Aweber or Mailchimp, at around $20/m and you’ll likely need to make an investment in traffic such as Facebook ads, although you can rely on free traffic from SEO, YouTube & social media instead.
The great thing about the 40% commissions with Clickfunnels is that once you’ve hit 3 subscribers, then your affiliate income is enough to pay for a Clickfunnels account and an Aweber account.
This all sounds too hard… Is there any help available?
Fortunately, they have a great support system in place. Remember that when you make money, they make money too, so the Clickfunnels team want you to be successful.
They have a few support resources available:
