If not, thats totally ok (you were probably busy adjusting patients right?)

Clickfunnels, at its core of the company, is essentially a landing page builder on steroids.

It’s packed with pre-made templates that you can customize however you see fit and modernize for your practice needs.
When using clickfunnels you can either select a pre-made high-converting funnel of your choice from the hundreds of available templates, or build your own from scratch.
ClickFunnels will let you create all your opt in pages, sales pages, email sequence, membership areas, online training courses etc, and intelligently link them together to build your funnel – all in one, easy to use tool.
Before we even get into the ClickFunnels software, you first need to understand why clickfunnels are the key to maximizing your chiropractic practice profits. They don’t tell you everything, so keep reading..
Why should a chiropractor be interested in sales funnels in the first place?
To start, using an online system like Clickfunnels gives you the opportunity to create another new patient generation tool and patient educator that is working for you literally 24x 7. Once you have the page built and sequence created, you literally can set it and start running traffic to it (via email or facebook ads) and you will most likely start to see people optin for your videos/giveaways/etc and schedule appointments.
UPDATE: Get a free trial of clickfunnels (for two weeks) by watching their short video. You can cancel after two weeks if you don’t like it, but you’ll be able to see how easy it is to get patients from the internet.
So, what does Clickfunnels do?
In essence, it’s all about the email address
Once you send traffic to your ‘funnel’ and get their email, you then start pre-selling your ‘leads’ with information or offers about your practice or the service you’d like them to buy. You can come up with something called a ‘soap opera’ sequence which is going to build up your lead’s trust and get them much more willing to become your patient.
Here’s how the sequence looks for a chiropractic practice:
- The first step in a successful funnel is sending potential patients to an optin page. This page is especially designed to get them to ‘opt in’ for something ( a video, course, or special offer).
Here is a working Example: You make a clickfunnel page with a video about low back pain (see below) and once a person opts in, then they watch your video and you can present them with an offer to come in to your office. After that you can start emailing them with more education or you can give them a special discount/incentive to schedule an appointment.
(the ‘funnel‘ below generated 26 (full paying) new patients for Dr. Beau’s office and he spent only $80 in advertising costs on Facebook)
What’s it all come down to: It’s a number game
So let’s say that you’re able to convert about 20% of all people who optin for your free video to come in under care.
Example: You spend $5 per optin/lead for 100 leads = $500 costs
However, 20% of those who optin call and schedule appointments.
If your average pt. case is worth $700 then you = $14,000.
(Anyone want to trade $500 dollars for $14,000?)-
This is the power of online marketing and clickfunnels
If you increase your profit margins, you can then outspend your competitors on ads and get more people into your sales funnel. The math is simple: the more visitors you get; the more money and patients you can serve.
How do the nuts and bolts of this all work you may be asking. Here they are:

The best things about Clickfunnels (benefits and features)
1: Great visual drag and drop editor
Although ClickFunnels gives a great starting point with the templates, their editor is where you really make each page your own. The pages are laid out using sections that can have a number of rows and columns and you use your mouse to drag elements around and place them in the desired location.
The editor is very intuitive and you can edit the text elements inline. Everything is organized in a logical way, so you won’t waste time searching for the things that you want to do. As an added bonus, there is no coding required!
2: Huge selection of page elements
Elements are essential for giving you the flexibility to design all the pages that you want. Basic elements include a headline, images, text, buttons, input forms and video widgets. These are the basic building blocks for a landing page. Additional advanced elements include SMS Signup, surveys, pricing tables, progress bars, Facebook comments, FAQ Blocks, countdown timers and custom HTML.
