This month on Simple Steps to Online Success our topic is funnel building and Kajabi Pipelines. What is the difference between a funnel that coverts and one that creates the sound of a thousand crickets chirping?

You’ll be surprised to know that there are usually only 3 reasons why people don’t opt in for your freebie, register for your webinars, or don’t purchase your offer.

Fun with Funnels!

One of the foundations of online marketing is the concept of creating marketing funnels. A marketing funnel is a way to visualize the customer journey from initial awareness of your business, all the way through conversion.

The sales funnel provides a useful framework through which you can analyze your business and identify areas for improvement.

Kajabi makes it easy to create all the assets for a variety of funnels through their Pipelines, all with just a click.

Join me this Thursday for Simple Steps to Online Success for an overview of the concepts of funnel building and how Kajabi Pipelines make it easy to plan, build and execute a number of different types of funnels.

How to Use a Third Party Email or Marketing Automation System with Kajabi?

kajabi Feb 28, 2020
 

Over the past few weeks, I’ve demonstrated Kajabi’s new email editor and presented an analysis of the differences between using the new visual editor and the classic (plain text) editor.

For now, I am sticking with Kajabi and the Classic editor for my plain text emails. Although, I may be doing some test, since I have accounts with both Active Campaign and ConvertKit.

Don’t worry, I’ll report back my findings!

However, I DO know that there are many who have their email lists with third party tools like Convertkit, Active Campaign and Mail Chimp. This week on Simple Steps to Online Success, I’ll talk about the key things to be aware of when using a third party email/marketing automation system with Kajabi.

• The key decisions when choosing which service to use
• Using Kajabi forms and landing pages and automations in third parties.
• Managing tags and segments in your third party email services
• What to do once an email subscriber...

Looking for Inspiration? A Review of Kajabi Sites

kajabi Jan 23, 2020
 

This episode came about when members of my paid membership asked about reviewing existing Kajabi sites for inspiration. I thought I would share a few examples of public facing websites and blogs. I WAS hoping to include some back-end course and membership site programs, but, alas, the tech gremlins (AKA as my Internet connection) conspired to make that not possible today! Looks like content for another episode!
