Legit or Scam?
ClickFunnels is not a scam, and most definitely legit. They have more than 5 years of services and quite a great amount of clients, not to mention people who have been or are still currently successful with them. Yes, the program might have a bug or two, but otherwise, completely legit.
The platform’s user interface is complicated and not beginner-friendly; therefore, I am not particularly impressed with it. The page builder in my experience was found to be on the slow side, and the drag-and-drop was not as easy as it is on other platforms. There is most definitely a learning curve to the platform, but once you get the hang of it, smooth sailing from thereon.
Do They have Training and/or Tutorials?
ClickFunnels provides guides, forums, tutorials, and so on, as a way of helping their clients understand the program and the tools/features that come with it. A training program known as Funnel Flix, which provides training and courses, is also available but purchased separately during sign-up.

Using funnels to make money is becoming a more and more popular thing these days, and it is a legitimate way of generating more sales, therefore, a way of making money, but as with any internet marketing program, time, patience, and hard work will be needed to be successful. So in summary, yes, it is possible to make money with the program.
Who is the Program Intended For?
Simply put, any business with an online presence interested in using funnels as a way of generating more sales, thus making more money, can use the program as long as they are willing to learn how to use funnels and the program, not to mention put in the work.
ClickFunnels Review – Pros
- Steven and Russell are great teachers who know how to get information across to their audiences, and how to keep them involved. CF training is above average.
- Funnel Templates are provided by ClickFunnels, which is great for those amongst us who have never created one before as it gives them a great place to start.
- The drag-and-drop editor makes navigation easier and it is much simpler to use.
- They provide a multitude of elements and widgets to use.
- The first domain name is completely free.
- ClickFunnels has 2 massive online communities in the form of 2 Facebook Groups, one of which is for affiliates and the other for all members.
- ClickFunnels can be easily integrated with most email and payment providers.
- The ClickFunnels affiliate program cannot be joined by anyone at any time. Yes, any affiliate can promote their basic products such as Dotcom Secrets, but the rest of it, such as the program itself, can only be promoted by those who have made more than $1000 advertising their basic products, not to mention that you have to not only join but complete the ClickFunnels affiliate boot camp training course.
- The huge training curve that ClickFunnels has can be very intimidating to a lot of people.
- Considering that programs such as LeadPages offer similar tools and features at a lower cost, ClickFunnels can be considered pricey.
- The split testing offered is rather basic.
To be honest, I expected ClickFunnels to be this beyond awesome product, considering that it’s been blown up all over with advertising and affiliates going nuts over it like it’s the next big thing only second to ice cream, so I am a rather bit disappointed and for a few reasons.
I never found a design style that I liked. A lot, if not most of the web pages are cheap-looking, flashy, and just overall intimidating. I prefer going for landing pages that are classier professional-looking, and just have more of an upmarket look and feel.
Marketing like this has been used for ages, by millions of people and it’s nothing new. So yeah, when people land on a page that looks cheap and flashy, their BS detector is immediately turned on, and they become wary. If you plan on thriving in this industry, you best build a classy-looking page that screams “I am a professional”, rather than a flashy thing that screams “buy my scams”. In summary, I had a hard time building a page that satisfied me. (a few good options, but not enough for that price tag)
They have no free option, and though they do offer a trial, you have to submit credit card details upon subscribing, which is as good as buying it. These days, there are way too many scams around, which makes people wary of just blindly giving out credit card details, because, well you might decide that the program just isn’t for you, but then it gets deducted anyway, right? If the program is truly that great, then just offer a free version or a free trial without the need for details, and the program will sell itself. People wouldn’t hesitate to upgrade once they see the value in it.
I do not recommend this program for newbies, it is better suited for someone who already has an established business/product, and just needs a way of marketing it better. The program is also expensive, and knowledge is needed to make it work, therefore, again, not beginner-friendly. I’d give the program a rating of 8/10, as it is an excellent program, not to mention Brunson is an expert who knows what he is doing, and the books plus training, all support the program 100%.
Well, this is it, for now, thank you for visiting, and please do not be shy to share your opinion as this will help others to make a more informed decision.
Thank You and Have Yourself an Awesome Day!
