The first thing to realise, sending leads to the registration page doesn’t work.
What you want to do, is convince your leads that your offer is worth their time and trust. If they will be directed to the registration page of your MLM business you promoting, you did none of that.
Also, you want to build a list to follow your leads, means sending emails to them. You can’t make your list without the right funnel.
That is when the Funnel comes in. A funnel is a series structure of pages for the leads to go through before reaching the registration page of your business. Let’s walk through each page of the funnel:
Also known as the landing page or squeeze page. You already guessed the reason for the name “Capture page”. The aim is to attract the visitor’s attention and make him/her curious about your offer.
Let’s have a look at the structure of capture page.
As you can see from this capture page, the text style is varied to catch the visitor’s attention. Below the text, there is an email box. Why do we need an email box? Because we want the visitor to sign up to our list and send him our follow-ups emails. It is highly important not to lose our visitor after reaching that point.
Note: You can also have a box asking to fill name, phone number, etc. However, it is not recommended to have a large form to fill since the visitor will just leave to make things easier.
After the visitor fills his email in the form and clicks “Show Me The Video”, he will be directed to the video sales page.
Tips for Capture Page:
- Less is more. You may not want to make the capture page too messy or loaded with information. Make it straightforward and clear.
- Know the six seconds rule. That rule means that if the visitor doesn’t figure what do you offer him within six seconds, you might lose that visitor.
- It is highly not recommended to open the video page in a new tab. You may want to make the funnel flow on one window and not making the visitor start going from one tab to another.
- Except for the email, you do not need additional forms for the visitors to fill. Unless you want to call them too.
Video Sales Page
That’s where the magic happens. Here it is the place where the visitor will decide if he will sign up to your business or not. The video is usually testimonial video, presentation or cartoon of the firm.
Here you can put some bullet points about your business. The structure of a sales page is simply a title, video and a button for the registration page.
Note: You may want to make the process simple here too. It is not recommended to overwhelm the visitor with information. He might just leave to make everything easier.
That’s is the last page where the visitor comes from the sales page. You did all of your funnels to maximise the number of visitors to sign up for your business.
