GrooveFunnels Vs LeadPages

A laptop looking at funnel and landing page builders

If you’re looking for a landing page or funnel builder to help you grow your business and have narrowed it down to GrooveFunnels vs LeadPages then here in this article, I’m going to compare these two platforms to help you decide which is the best choice for you.

They’re both actually great apps with some cool features, so this will be an interesting comparison.

Something that caught my eye about GrooveFunnels in particular though, is that it has free and lifetime deals available which are pretty unique. But, I’ll give you a more in-depth look at that later on in this article.

Just because Groove has a free plan doesn’t mean that you should sign up for it now. However, if you want to check it out then here’s the link.

You may also want to compare these funnel and landing page builders with other popular options:

What is GrooveFunnels

GrooveFunnels is a new funnel builder that only launched this year. It comes with a gigantic list of features to help you build and scale your online business.

Despite GrooveFunnels being so new, it has already become extremely popular and has a community with over 100,000 members.

One of the founders, Mike Filsaime, has also been involved in various other successful projects like Kartra, WebinarJam, and EverWebinar.

What Is LeadPages

Unlike GrooveFunnels, LeadPages has been around for a long time, since 2008 to be exact. It’s a landing page and website builder that makes it easy to build almost any type of page using their software.

LeadPages is also extremely popular and has around 46,000 paying customers.

So, while GrooveFunnels aims to be an all-in-one platform for online businesses that gives you all the tools you need, LeadPages is focused on landing pages & websites only.

GrooveFunnels Vs LeadPages – Similarities

Before we talk about the differences between these two platforms, let’s look at how they are similar.

Website & Landing Page Templates

Of course, LeadPages has website and landing page templates because that’s part of their core offer. However, GrooveFunnels also has a landing page, website and funnel builder app (GroovePages), too. So, in this regard we can do a direct comparison here.

Both pieces of software allow you to edit and fully customize any of the templates that you get access to in your dashboard. They both have an easy to use page builder, which I’ll get into in a moment.

The templates of both builders, however, have some great variety in style and also types which is nice. For example, both GrooveFunnels and LeadPages have a range of ready to go templates that are already pre-designed for all kinds of businesses.

That doesn’t mean you can’t build your own from scratch though if you want to do that. You totally can.

When it comes to comparing LeadPages and GrooveFunnels templates, there are a few minor differences, but I’ll also get into that later on in this article.

Pop-Ups & Additional page features

Something that also makes these two platforms similar is the pop-ups & additional features for the pages.

They both allow you to add pop-ups, alert bars, and various other conversion-focused components to your pages. One difference between them though, is that GrooveFunnels also lets you add small social proof pop-ups in the corner of your screen. Unfortunately, LeadPages doesn’t have this feature.

Good Page Builders

GrooveFunnels and LeadPages also both have great page builders.

When using these platforms, I was surprised by the number of elements you can add to your pages, so you certainly get a lot of options. Plus, both page builders feel very smooth and are easy to edit.

Sales Platform & Checkouts

LeadPages and GrooveFunnels don’t just let you build beautiful pages, but you can also use them to sell your products and services, if that’s what your focus is.

They both also have advanced checkout features to help you get the most out of every sale.

These features include order bumps, one-click upsells and downsells.

GrooveFunnels Vs LeadPages – Differences

Now that we have taken a look at how they’re similar, it’s time to get into differences. Below, I’m gonna explain what GrooveFunnels has that LeadPages doesn’t and vice-versa.

What GrooveFunnels Has That LeadPages Does Not Have

GrooveFunnels has a huge number of features that LeadPages doesn’t have. I’ve explained the most significant below, and the rest are in the other features section of this article.

Bear in mind, just because Groove has a load more features, doesn’t mean that you should automatically go for this option. It all depends on what you want to use the tool for.

If you also need any of the other features that GrooveFunnels offer, then, of course, it makes sense to sign up for GrooveFunnels. However, if you purely want a landing, funnel and website builder then all you need to do is compare the GroovePages app with LeadPages.

GrooveMail (Groove’s Autoresponder)

One of the most significant features that LeadPages is missing compared to GrooveFunnels, is the built in autoresponder.

I particularly like this feature because it’s a core software application that is needed in almost all businesses, and it can save you a lot of money having it built into GrooveFunnels for free.

If you’re using LeadPages you will have to pay for an external email marketing software which can often cost you anywhere from $50 to $300 per month, depending on the size of your list.

GrooveMember (Membership Site Builder)

If you’re looking to sell a course or create a membership site, you’re going to need a feature or external software to help you build one. GrooveFunnels has “GrooveMember” which lets you do this, but LeadPages doesn’t have one.

So, if you’re looking to sell a course then you should probably consider going for GrooveFunnels.

Alternatively, if you want to use LeadPages then you can integrate it with a 3rd party membership platform like Kajabi or MemberMouse, for example.

GrooveAffiliate (Affiliate Management Platform)

Another big feature LeadPages doesn’t have is an affiliate management platform. If you choose to go with GrooveFunnels then you also get access to the GrooveAffiliate app.

As the name suggests, it lets you recruit and manage affiliates to helpy uo promote your products and services.

GrooveFunnels’ affiliate platform is one of the most advanced on the market and has great analytics too. There is also a marketplace to help affiliates find your product which ultimately will help you recruit affiliates and increase sales.

GrooveWebinar

GrooveFunnels also lets you host live and pre-recorded webinars. If you’re looking to sell your products or services via Webinars, this could also be a good reason to go for GrooveFunnels.

You can use GrooveWebinar to host both live and pre-recorded webinars.

LeadPages does let you create sign up pages, but not host the webinar there which means you’ll need an external service life EverWebinar or Webinar Jam for this.

Fewer/No Domain Limits

On the pricing plans, LeadPages has some quite significant limits in terms of domains. GrooveFunnels, on the other hand, has fewer limits on domains, or none at all depending on the pricing plan you choose. I’ll talk more about the pricing options for both LeadPages and GrooveFunnels later on.

GrooveKart

GrooveKart is an app that is comparable to Shopify, which you also get access to with the GrooveFunnels premium plan.

The cool thing about it is GrooveKart compared to Shopify, however, is that it comes with all the apps you’ll need to use, so you don’t have to spend additional money on them, like you do with Shopify.

If you’re in e-Commerce and want to sell any physical products, this is a great feature as it will help you save lots of money. The GrooveKart app has also been around a lot longer than GrooveFunnels so it has been fully developed and tested.

Other Features

As I did mention, GrooveFunnels has a huge list of features that aren’t inside of LeadPages.

Below is a full list of all the features that come with GrooveFunnels. But, keep in mind some of these are not released yet. GrooveDigital aims to have them all developed and ready to use in 2021.

  • GrooveVideo (Video hosting)
  • GrooveStreaming (Live streaming)
  • GrooveSurvey (Survey platform)
  • GrooveQuiz (Quiz platform)
  • GrooveBlog (Blogging platform)
  • GrooveDesk (Helpdesk platform)
  • GrooveCalendar (Booking/Calendar)
  • GroovePipe CRM (CRM platform)
  • GrooveFunnel Mapping (Visual funnel map platform)
  • GrooveProof (Social Proof app)
  • GrooveAutomations (Automations app)
  • GrooveSDK (3rd Party developer access)

The 3rd party developer access is also something I think is quite cool. What it is, is that GrooveFunnels will be, in time, an open-source platform similar to WordPress where 3rd party developers can upload their plugins and apps.

This means that, over time, you will also be able to benefit from all the additional software that will be created for the platform on an ongoing basis. And if you’re a software developer then you will also be able to establish an additional income stream through providing some premium addons.

What LeadPages Has That GrooveFunnels Does Not Have

Although LeadPages doesn’t have the biggest quantity of features, it still has some great benefits compared to GrooveFunnels.

More Landing Page Templates

One of the main reasons you might prefer LeadPages is because it has more landing page templates.

As mentioned earlier, LeadPages has been around since 2008, and building landing pages & websites are its main purpose. So, that’s quite natural that it has a few more landing page templates.

More Integrations

It also has more integrations than GrooveFunnels.

However, you could argue that this is only the case because GrooveFunnels doesn’t need as many integrations, because of the number of features that it already comes with.

Still, having them is definitely a good thing.

Fewer Bugs

LeadPages also has fewer bugs than GrooveFunnels because it’s fully developed.

The GrooveFunnels team is working hard to fix all the bugs, but there are still a few because it only launched in 2020. LeadPages on the other hand is smooth and flawless because of how long it has been around.

LeadPages Drawbacks

LeadPages has a couple of drawbacks compared to GrooveFunnels. Take a look below to find out what they are.

No Free Plan

One of the bigger drawbacks to LeadPages is that it doesn’t have a free plan. For a beginner or new business with a limited budget, this can be quite costly as they’d have to invest in the software as soon as the trial period ends.

Of course, we can’t expect every software to have a free plan, but compared to GrooveFunnels it is a drawback. That being said, LeadPages does have a plan which is quite affordable starting at $37 per month, which is very reasonable.

Limited Features Compared To GrooveFunnels

GrooveFunnels has a huge list of features, while LeadPages only focuses on its landing page and website builder.

And if you do want some of those features that Groove offers, it is a drawback that LeadPage doesn’t have them. That being said, they do have a good list of integrations so you will be able to use other 3rd party programs in conjunction with LeadPages.

Smaller Community & Less Education Material

Don’t get me wrong, LeadPages has quite a lot of great blog posts, webinars, podcasts, and other resources. However, GrooveFunnels and GrooveKart especially come with hours of additional training material like courses that also cover various topics like traffic generation, for example, to help you grow your business.

GrooveFunnels also has a bigger community through their Facebook group (120k vs 18k). This makes it easier for you to network, and also find answers when you’re looking for them.

GrooveFunnels Drawbacks

Although GrooveFunnels has more features, it also has some drawbacks. Take a look below to see what they are.

It’s still in Beta

Groove Funnels’ biggest drawback at the moment is that it’s still in beta.

Firstly, you’ll encounter bugs. Although, the GrooveFunnels team is working hard daily to fix them, so they are getting rarer.

The second way this is a drawback is because you have no guarantee of the features that aren’t available yet, are actually coming. That being said, most of the main features are already available, and even with those apps alone, GrooveFunnels is still a great deal.

The rest is pretty much a bonus. Plus, Mike Filsaime, the co-founder and CEO of GrooveFunnels, has been behind various other successful projects, such as Kartra, EverWebinar and WebinarJam. The other founders have also had great success with similar software projects too.

Collectively, they have a wealth of knowledge, experience and a lot of respect in the industry. So, the chances of the features not coming are quite slim.

Limited Landing Page Templates (Compared to LeadPages)

This one might be quite harsh from me because normally we often praise how many great templates GrooveFunnels has.

However, compared to LeadPages, there are a lot fewer landing page templates due to how long LeadPages has been around for. With all the development that is going into GrooveFunnels, though, I can even imagine them catching up in the future.

LeadPages Pros & Cons

Pros:

  • Great landing page builder
  • Huge selection of templates
  • Reasonable pricing

Cons:

  • Not a lot of features other than landing pages
  • No free & lifetime plans

GrooveFunnels Pros & Cons

Pros:

  • Huge list of features
  • Great page builder
  • Big community
  • Growing

Cons:

  • Not as many templates
  • Still in beta

GrooveFunnels Vs LeadPages – Pricing

Now that we’ve taken a complete look at what both of these platforms have to offer, let’s take a look at the pricing plans.

LeadPages Cost

LeadPages has three pricing plans, starting at $37 per month as you can see in the image below.

The LeadPages pricing table

All of the plans also have annual discounts available.

If paid annually the plans become:

  • Standard $27 per month
  • Pro: $59 per month
  • Advanced $239 per month

I think LeadPages pricing is fair for the product. However, the one thing that I would complain about is the limits on the number of sites that you can have on each plan. For example, GrooveFunnels’ free plan gives you more sites than LeadPages’ standard plan.

And if you would like to create more than 3 sites you would have to go on the advanced plan which is $321 per month.

That’s not ideal.

Something to note though is that “sites” refers to the number of domains you can connect. You can have several different landing pages on one domain.

GrooveFunnels Cost

GrooveFunnels is a platform that offers a huge amount of value. When it’s fully developed, the pricing plans will be around $299 per month which is still a good deal, considering the features.

However, because it’s in such early stages, you can get access to it for much less, as there are lifetime deals available. Plus, you can even get access to the features for free with a few limits.

Take a look at the GrooveFunnels pricing plans below.

The GrooveFunnels pricing list

GrooveFunnels Free

The GrooveFunnels free plan gives you access to all of the features.

But, every feature has some type of limitation.

For example, you can only connect 3 domains, and collect up to 500 contacts with GrooveMail. After you have hit the limits, you can either upgrade your plan or just pay for a ‘bolt-on’ package to increase the number of subs you can have.

Still, 500 contacts, 3 sites, and the other limits are extremely generous for a completely free plan. Basically, you have enough resources to start your online business.

GrooveFunnels Platinum Lifetime

The second pricing plan available at the moment is GrooveFunnels platinum, the lifetime deal. With this plan, you get access to all the features with almost no limits.

I think one of the only limits of this plan is 10,000 contacts on GrooveMail. And even if you hit it, there is a very affordable upgrade and it’s much cheaper than with other autoresponders. 

This option at the moment only costs $1397 as a one-time fee.

This is a great deal, especially when you consider the price will be $299 per month or how much all of these features would cost with 3rd party software.

However, this option can disappear at any moment as the platform is developing every day. Previously, this plan came with 25,000 contacts (instead of 10,000), so it can also change if you don’t lock it in now.

How to check if the lifetime deal is still available:

To check whether the lifetime deal is available, you can follow the instructions below.

  1. Create a free GrooveFunnels account here (No credit card required)
  2. Hit “Upgrade”
  3. Scroll through the page to see any available deals

Final Thoughts – GrooveFunnels Vs LeadPages

As you have seen throughout this article, both GrooveFunnels and LeadPages have some great features.

While GrooveFunnels has a bigger quantity of features, LeadPages focuses only on landing pages so they are awesome at that part.

This is also one of the reasons, alongside GrooveFunnels being in beta, why you might encounter a few bugs when using Groove’s page builder. However, the GrooveFunnels team is actively working on this, and they are becoming rarer by the day.

I upgraded to the GrooveFunnels lifetime deal myself a few months ago, and I haven’t come across many bugs. However, the ones I did come across I reported to Groove and their tech team then get to work on resolving them, which is pretty cool.

If you need or would like the additional features, Groove has to offer, then it would be worth going for it.

On the other hand, if you only really want a great landing page builder, LeadPages is a great option.

GrooveFunnels vs Builderall

A person on a computer looking into funnel software

If you’re looking to start an online business, you’re probably going to need some type of sales funnel builder. Today, we’re going to be comparing two popular options, GrooveFunnels vs BuilderAll.

They are both great platforms, but something that I found interesting about GrooveFunnels in particular is their free and lifetime plans.

But, we’ll talk more about this later on…

GrooveFunnels Vs Builderall Overview

Below, I’ve given you a brief overview of GrooveFunnels and BuilderAll.

More Comparisons

You may also want to compare these funnel and landing page builders with other popular options:


What Is GrooveFunnels?

GrooveFunnels is the fastest-growing funnel builder, as it only launched this year, but already has over 100,000 members.

GrooveFunnels aims to become a true all-in-one marketing platform that blows away the competition in terms of features.

The founders of GrooveFunnels are:

  • Mike Filsaime
  • John Cornetta
  • Matt Serralta
  • Matt Naus

What Is Builderall?

BuilderAll has been around a little longer but is still relatively new as it launched in 2017.

Similar to GrooveFunnels it also aims to be an all-in-one platform for digital marketers. It’s also constantly evolving and adding new features, which is something that I like about it.

GrooveFunnels Verses Builderall – Similarities

As these two platforms have similar goals, you can probably guess that there will be a few similarities. Below, I’ve explained all to help you see what’s available in both of them.

Drag & Drop Website & Funnel Builder

Both GrooveFunnels and BuilderAll have a pretty good website & funnel builder.

They both allow you to build conversion-focused landing pages and funnels, as well as full-navigation websites. That being said, I find that GrooveFunnels’ page builder offers a little more customization by giving you more elements.

Templates

Just like almost any funnel builder you know, they also have a great selection of templates. Both of them offer a good variety, and the templates look quite nice. They can be easily edited with the drag & drop builder which makes it easy to build the websites or funnels you want.

Email Marketing & Templates

BuilderAll and GrooveFunnels also have great email marketing features.

They both have drag & drop email marketing automation sequences with lots of triggers that can also be combined with their beautiful email templates.

Membership Site Builder

If you’re someone looking to sell a course or create another type of membership site, then, of course, you’re going to need a dedicated builder for it.

Both GrooveFunnels and BuilderAll have one, which is great because it stops you from having to go for something like Kajabi or Thinkific.

Comprehensive Checkout Features & Affiliate Platform

Something that I also like about both of these platforms is that they come with comprehensive checkout features.

This includes things like order bumps & one-click upsells to help you make the most out of every sale. Plus, you can also recruit affiliates to help you make more sales in the first place.

Video Hosting

Another similarity between these two platforms is that they both offer video hosting. They both also allow you to manage the videos and add CTA’s which is quite nice too.

Booking & Calendar App

For those of you that have consulting or other service-based businesses, you’re probably going to need a calendar app.

Luckily, both of these platforms have one which stops you from having to get another external service for this purpose too.

Webinar & Live Streaming

Another cool thing about both of these platforms is that they come with webinars & live-streaming apps. They both allow you to create live webinars and auto (evergreen) webinars.

Other Similarities Between GrooveFunnels & BuilderAll

Those were the main similarities between these two platforms, but there are a few more. You can see the rest of them in the bullet-pointed list below.

  • Blogging apps (Coming soon for Groove)
  • CRM (Coming soon for Groove)
  • A/B Split-testing
  • Funnel Mapping/Simulator
  • Advanced Analytics
  • Pop-ups
  • Lots of training & knowledge base
  • Funnel sharing/Transfer (is easier with Groove)
  • Scarcity timers
  • Ability to change SEO meta, alt text, etc.

GrooveFunnels V Builderall – Differences

Now that we have taken a look at the similarities between both of these two platforms, let’s talk about the differences.

Below, I’ve explained what GrooveFunnels has that BuilderAll doesn’t and vice versa to help you find the best option for you.

What GrooveFunnels Has That Builderall Does Not Have

GrooveFunnels Has a Free Plan

The first thing that GrooveFunnels has which BuilderAll doesn’t is a free plan.

You can get access to all of GrooveFunnels’ features for free. The page builder, the autoresponder, etc… everything.

However, they do have a few limits in terms of contacts, websites, and domains but that is to be expected on a free plan.

We’ll talk more about this later on, or if you can’t wait, you can also click the button below to create a free account.

GrooveKart

Another big feature that is not inside of BuilderAll is GrooveKart.

This is a feature that is comparable to Shopify, with the main difference being that it comes with all the apps. Using this feature alone, you can build a full eCommerce store. Interestingly, this feature on its own without GrooveFunnels costs $99 per month.

GrooveProof

GrooveProof is the feature that helps you add social proof to your sales pages. Using this, you can add little pop-ups that will say something like “X person just bought this”.

This helps you leverage social proof to increase your conversions. BuilderAll does not have this feature.

GrooveSDK

GrooveSDK is the feature that is going to allow 3rd party developers to work on GrooveFunnels and create plugins and apps.

This feature will make it an open-source platform similar to WordPress.org, which means there is much more coming to this platform.

GrooveSurvey & GrooveQuiz

Two more features that BuilderAll doesn’t have are GrooveSurvey and GrooveQuiz. As the name suggests, these are tools to help you keep your audience engaged. BuilderAll doesn’t have these.

GrooveMail & GrooveAutomation Will Be More Advanced

GrooveMail & GrooveAutomation according to Groove themselves will be like ActiveCampaign. If this is the case, then it will be much more advanced than BuilderAll’s automation sequences.

BuilderAll’s automation sequences are also drag & drop, but they don’t have as many triggers as ActiveCampaign.

What Builderall Has That GrooveFunnels Does Not Have

Chatbots

One of the main features that BuilderAll has that GrooveFunnels doesn’t is the Chatbot feature.

Using this feature, you’ll be able to create Chatbots and add them to your sites created in BuilderAll. However, if you are looking to go with GrooveFunnels, you can get external software for this for $10 per month, or even $37 lifetime.

So, it’s not exactly the end of the world that GrooveFunnels doesn’t have this feature.

WordPress 3 Click Integration

BuilderAll allows you to integrate with WordPress in just 3 clicks.

This is a native integration, while with GrooveFunnels you would have to use Zapier.

One Live Call With BuilderAll Specialist

With BuilderAll’s plans, you also get a live call with a BuilderAll specialist. This is one live call only to help you get set up, but it’s still something that isn’t inside of GrooveFunnels.

Chatbot Niche Funnels

On the BuilderAll Funnel club plan, you can get access to 30+ Messenger chatbot niche funnels. Again, because GrooveFunnels doesn’t have Chatbots, this is only available in BuilderAll.

Auction Checkout

Last but not least, BuilderAll also has an auction checkout. This can help you run auctions for your products which can create additional scarcity.

Builderall Drawbacks

Let’s take a look at the drawbacks of BuilderAll.

No Free plan & Limited Pricing

Firstly, it does not have a free plan. This means, you won’t be able to start building your business and upgrade later on, you have to invest in the software as soon as your trial is over.

If you’re a beginner or simply on a budget, this could be a reason to go for GrooveFunnels.

Plus, it also only really has one pricing plan which is the premium. This doesn’t exactly give you the best options if you only need a couple of features available in BuilderAll.

Templates Compared To GrooveFunnels

Compared to GrooveFunnels I think their templates aren’t as good.

They are good compared to most other funnel builders but they do look a bit outdated, compared to GrooveFunnels’ modern templates. Although, this is just my opinion.

Slow Dashboard

I’m not sure why this is the case, but BuilderAll’s dashboard is slow. It used to be the same for their pages, but luckily that seems to have changed. Still, their dashboard is quite slow which can have bad effects on your productivity.

Poor Support

The support is probably one of the most common complaints that I hear about BuilderAll. I’ve heard them be described as everything ranging from rude to not helpful.

GrooveFunnels Drawbacks

GrooveFunnels has fewer drawbacks, but one of them is more significant. Take a look below to see how they would affect you.

Still In Beta

This is the most significant because it affects the platform in several ways.

Firstly, you don’t know whether all of the features are coming in the future. There is no guarantee that they will.

Although, they are extremely likely to because the founders have been involved in other successful projects like Kartra, WebinarJam, and EverWebinar. These guys have a good reputation and a great track record.

However, it also affects the way the platform currently works as it means there are some bugs. Fortunately, these are getting rarer every day as the GrooveFunnels team is constantly working on them.

Limited Pricing Plans

Another drawback is that their pricing plans are somewhat limited right now. If you don’t want to invest in their lifetime plan yet, your only other option is the free plan as of right now. However, this is meant to be changing soon.

Builderall Pros & Cons

Pros:

  • Good page builder
  • Good marketing automation tools
  • Good checkout features
  • Cool additional features (Chatbots, video hosting, etc)
  • Constantly evolving

Cons:

  • Templates (compared to GrooveFunnels)
  • Poor support
  • No free plan & limited pricing

GrooveFunnels Pros & Cons

Pros:

  • Free plan
  • Lifetime plan available (see next)
  • An amazing list of features
  • Will be becoming an open-source platform
  • Perfect for almost any business (eCommerce, affiliate marketing, service, etc.)

Cons:

  • Some features are not available yet
  • Some bugs still to be fixed

GrooveFunnels Vs Builderall – Pricing

Now let’s take a look at the costs both of these pieces of software come at.

Builderall Pricing

BuilderAll used to have several pricing plans ranging from free to $69.90. However, that has changed since the launch of BuilderAll 4.0.

Now the only pricing plans are $69.90 per month or the funnel club option for an additional one-time fee of $199, plus $69.90 per month.

The additional option gives you access to more done-for-you funnel templates for you to use.

Builderall pricing table

Still, getting all of these features is a pretty good deal. I think they can be suited well especially for service-based businesses. For example for Chatbot or funnel-building agencies.

GrooveFunnels Pricing

GrooveFunnels is still in beta mode which means you can get access to a special deal at the moment.

GrooveFunnels will soon be switching their pricing plans and will range from $99 per month to $299 per month, depending on the limits & features needed by the user.

The GrooveFunnels pricing list

However, as of early December 2020, you can get access to all of the features for life for a one-time fee of $1397.

This deal is meant to end soon, but you can check whether it’s available by following the instructions below.

Step 1: Sign up for a free GrooveFunnels account (No Credit Card Required)

Step 2: Hit “Upgrade” in your dashboard to be taken to the upgrade page

Step 3: Check out any available deals.

Final Thoughts – GrooveFunnels Vs Builderall – Which Is Best?

As you have seen throughout this article, GrooveFunnels vs BuilderAll is not a direct comparison as GrooveFunnels offers a lot more features that are beyond the scope of what Builderall provide.

However, both marketing software programs have a fantastic list of features for what they are designed to do.

They’re also both extremely similar which makes it quite hard to pick a winner. I think it just depends on the features you need, as well as your budget.

For example, if you’re in it for the long run, and feel you need all of the features GrooveFunnels has, you can consider going for the lifetime upgrade.

On the other hand, if you feel like BuilderAll is the better option and you don’t mind about not having great support, then you can go for BuilderAll.

Additionally, BuilderAll has also been around longer which means it has been tested a little more. This also means that GrooveFunnels has a few more bugs, as we mentioned earlier, but they are becoming rarer.

Just like the title says, Content Marketing For Traffic and Sales not only teaches you how to generate more traffic with your content, it also teaches you the psychological principles that move people to take action and result in more sales for you.

When pro copywriters write ads, they often convert like crazy. However, when you turn those ads off, the sales dry up. In this book, Daniel cleverly teaches you how to use these same principles the master copywriters use to make it rain, and apply it to your blog and email content.

Being able to create content that attracts and moves people is not an easy thing to do. However, there is a science behind it that you can learn.

In this book, Daniel walks you through the exact same content marketing strategy that he uses in his business. You will learn the 3 part method to writing content that highly appeals to your audience, put your sales on autopilot and ands scale it up with traffic.

Daniel also claims that by following his method you won’t need to write as much content. The reason is because content written with this method often goes viral and gets shared like crazy on the internet. When this happens, the traffic and sales keep coming, and Google gives you more kudos as a result of the engagement you’re getting.

In my opinion, this book is a must-have for all content marketers and affiliate SEO’s.

Making Your Website Work: 100 Copy & Design Tweaks for Smart Business Owners – by Gill Andrews

Making Your Website Work book

I’m sure you, like me, have come across a lot of websites that just look terrible. Well, there are also websites that look great, but they just don’t convert very well. Unfortunately, if the design is getting in the way of your copy, then it can destroy your sales.

This book is a bit different from the others in this article in that it doesn’t teach you about the copywriting formulas to apply to your content.

Instead, it teaches you how to spot errors in your copy and quickly fix them, and how to come across more trustworthy to your audience without using testimonials.

Besides this, the book also teaches you practical tips you can apply to your website to improve the layout and overall usability that can lead to more sales. This part is actually really important. For example, knowing exactly where you need to place the your call-to-action buttons can increase your click-through-rate considerably.

If you’re currently at the stage where you manage your website yourself then this book can be especially helpful for you. It will help you to craft a better message, and at the same time help you to recognise if the design of your website is getting in the way of your message.

Copywriting Books – My Final Thoughts

There is an absolute ton of copywriting resources out there, so much so that it’s hard not to get overwhelmed. That’s why I wanted to put together a more concise list of what I think are some of the best copywriting books for beginners.

If you’re lazy like me, and you don’t want to spend your life learning how to be a professional copywriter then you can also use copywriting software like Funnel Scripts to write your copy.

You don’t just have to stick with Funnel Scripts though, you can also use one of these alternatives here too.

All in all, copywriting is definitely a skill worth learning, so I recommend picking up one or two of these books and continue learning while you grow your business.

Copywriting Secrets Book Review by Jim Edwards

The Copywriting Secrets book

The Copywriting Secrets Book by Jim EdwardsThe Copywriting Secrets Book is now here, but is it any good and do you really need it?

If you’ve been trying to sell your product or service online but are not having much luck then one of the most likely things that are letting you down is your sales copy.

Being able to write copy that converts is a million-dollar skill that takes years to learn.

Fortunately for you and me, we don’t need to be master copywriters to make a full-time income online…

All you need to do is to be good at the fundamentals and understand the psychology behind selling to get people to buy your stuff.

Now, you can learn this and more from a master copywriter, Jim Edwards’ new copywriting book.

And there’s even more great news… You can get a free copy for a limited time. You just need to cover the shipping.

Here’s a look at what’s inside the book.

The Copywriting Secrets Book – What’s Inside?

Well, the title is a bit of a giveaway – the book is about the secret understandings and strategies the master copywriters use to sell more stuff.

The book contains 31 different secrets broken down by chapter. In each chapter, Jim goes into detail and explains the secrets in an easy to understand way.

What I particularly like about Jim’s approach is he also teaches in a way that you can actually take action immediately on what you are learning and put it into practice.

Who Is Jim Edwards?

If you’re part of the ClickFunnels community then no doubt, you will already have heard of Jim from his super-helpful copywriting and online marketing video tips he shares.

If you want some free copywriting training from Jim then you can register for his free webinar here.

If you don’t already know him then here’s some background on the guy.

In his early career, Jim Edwards worked in sales for a finance company and was often responsible for creating their sales copy. Jim found he had a knack for it and spent a considerable amount of time learning all he could about copywriting to perfect his craft.

Around 2000 he decided to work for himself online. Since that time, Jim has had tremendous success both with affiliate marketing and creating his own products.

Jim is also the creator of several successful software products.

Probably the most well-known software product by Jim is the auto-generating sales copy software, Funnel Scripts.

Jim partnered with another super-successful marketer, Russell Brunson, the owner of ClickFunnels, and brought this product to the online marketing community.

Copywriting Secrets – The Key Points

Copywriting Secrets For Beginners

If you’re a newbie to the world of online marketing or copywriting then this book will give you a solid foundation in the art and science of copywriting.

When I first got my copy of the book I thought it was gonna be pretty basic since Jim is giving it away for free. However, I was very surprised at the detail Jim goes into.

In my opinion, this is a great book for both beginners and experienced copywriters. If you’re a complete newbie to selling online then this book will certainly get you moving in the right direction.

Copywriting Secrets For Experienced Marketers

By the time I read Jim’s book I was already a seasoned marketer with around seven years experience. Several of my businesses require me to write sales copy and email copy, which I have mostly learned myself.

While I am by no means a master copywriter, not even close, but I’m quite okay at it and my copy does bring me results.

Reading Jim’s book gave me a deeper perspective on writing sales copy and I also learned several things that I did not know before.

If you’re an experienced marketer with some copywriting experience then it’s highly likely that you will also learn a few new things from Jim’s book too.

The Copywriting Secrets Funnel

The Copywriting Secrets book by Jim Edwards is currently free, but we don’t know for how long. If you are thinking about getting a copy then I highly recommend you grab one now before he starts charging for it.

You can get a copy here.

When you get your copy of the book you will be offered 3 upsells in the funnel.

  • Copywriting Secrets Audio Book – $27
  • Sales Story Secrets – $97
  • Funnel Scripts – $697

While you can also buy Funnel Scripts directly, it’s worth bearing in mind that the other two products are only offered in this funnel.

If you want to get one of them and you don’t take up the offer then you will not be able to go back later to order them.

The only way you could have another chance to get them is to get another copy of the book and go through the funnel again.

If you want to learn more about this copywriting software product then you can read my Funnel Scripts review here.

The Copywriting Secrets audiobook and other up-sells

Do I Need The Copywriting Secrets AudioBook?

If you’re a slow reader, you’ve already got several books on the go and don’t have the time to start reading a new one or if you just don’t like reading then spending $27 on the audiobook will be a wise investment for you.

Personally, I love listening to business audiobooks while I’m driving or going through my morning routine. This has probably saved me hundreds of hours over the years.

Is There a Copywriting Secrets PDF Download?

No, there is no PDF download of the Copywriting Secrets book. If you want to read it then you will need to order the paperback version and wait for it to arrive in the post.

Copywriting Secrets Price

Copywriting Secrets retails for $19.95, but as I mentioned before, at the moment the book is free, but likely only for a limited time. If you are thinking of getting a copy then I highly recommend you get it now while this offer is still available.

When you order the book, you will get a free copy, but you will need to cover the shipping cost.

Final Thoughts

So, do I think it’s worth spending a few bucks on shipping to get a copy of this book? Yes, definitely.

If you’re short on time to read it then I also highly recommend investing the $27 to get the audio version.

Personally, I didn’t get the audio version of this book, but I wish I had done so. I’m currently reading it for the second time and this book is definitely the kind of material you’re gonna want to refer back to again and again.

3 Best Funnel Scripts Alternatives – Write Killer Copy Without Experience

Funnel Scripts alternative - a man writing on paper

When you’re trying to sell anything online, you need to get the product to convert well in order to make consistent sales and see a good ROI on your investment.

That’s where copywriting comes in.

Good copywriting can literally 10X your sales, if you get it right.

However, it’s a hard skill to master and can take a very long time to get good at. That’s why it can be so expensive to hire a professional copywriter to do it for you.

Fortunately, there are some other alternatives in the way of copywriting software programs.

One of the most popular copywriting software programs is Funnel Scripts by Jim Edwards and Russel Brunson. You may have come across it through ClickFunnels. It’s a great program, and I do use it myself.

Some people think the initial price tag is a little high, which is the main reason they look for Funnel Scripts alternatives.

So, if you’re not sure if you should buy Funnel Scripts, here in this article, we’re going to take a look at the 3 best alternative options you can choose to get your copywriting done.

The Top 3 Funnel Scripts Alternatives For Great Copy

So, without further ado, here are what we believe are the 3 best choices if you don’t want to use Funnel Scripts for whatever reason.

ScriptDoll

Script Doll copywriting software

The first Funnel Scripts alternative is Scriptdoll.

Scriptdoll is a copywriting software that works based on the profile information of your target audience. It can create various types of sales letters and even email sequences automatically.

ScriptDoll comes with a library of templates for different campaigns that are also updated monthly.

Similarly to Funnel Scripts, this piece of software also aims to stop you from having to hire a copywriter. It does this by not only through helping you with things like word choice, but also by picking the pain points and getting the psychological sales message right.

It costs $99 per month but also has a trial option for $1.

What ScriptDoll Can Do

Here are some of the things that ScriptDoll does extremely well:

  • Create attention-grabbing Video sales letters
  • Create long-form sales letters
  • Create full email marketing campaigns

ScriptDoll Vs Funnel Scripts

The main difference between both of them is that Funnel Scripts has more options and extra scripts that you can create.

For example, you can also create short-form sales letters or copy for a particular type of funnel. Besides this, with Funnel Scripts, you can even go deeper and create copy for a specific part of a sales funnel, such as your OTO page or your order bump.

In general, Funnel Scripts is tailored a little towards ClickFunnels users. This means if you are using ClickFunnels, it would make sense to go for Funnel Scripts as it will feel more suited. Having said that, you don’t need to be a ClickFunnels customer to get loads out of FS.

Other than that ScriptDoll is a pretty nice software and I also like the scripts that they generate. They look professional and you’ll usually only need to do minimal editing. Of course, you are always going to have to make minimal edits, but that’s to be expected with anything that is AI-generated.

Sometimes with software like this, you get scripts that don’t make sense, but ScriptDoll offers all the main kinds of scripts that you will want to use, except for ad copy.

ScriptDoll also offers a $1 trial, so you can test it out first to see whether you like it.

Check Out ScriptDolls Trial!

Automatic Script

Automatic Script copy generator

Automatic Script is also another great Funnel Scripts alternative. The promise of both products is pretty much the same. It’s that you’ll never have to write the copy of your sales letters, VSL Scripts, Webinar slides, or Ad copy yourself, and you won’t need to spend thousands hiring a professional.

Interestingly, Automatic Script also includes ad copy scripts, which isn’t the case with ScriptDoll.

In my opinion, Automatic Scripts is more directly comparable to Funnel Scripts because you also get templates for specific parts of your funnel such as your CTA’s, opt-in pages, and more.

Again, this is pretty useful as it means that you can hone in much more closely on your copywriting for higher conversion potential.

Automatic Script also has affordable pricing plans, one being $39 per month and the other $69 monthly. The difference between the two plans is how many scripts per month you get of each type.

What ScriptDoll Can Do

ScriptDoll can create copy for:

  • Sales Letters
  • Email Sequences
  • Single Emails
  • Facebook Ads
  • Facebook CTA’s
  • Google Ads
  • Headlines
  • Info products
  • Opt-in pages
  • Order bumps
  • Phone Scripts
  • CTA’s
  • Testimonials
  • Upsells
  • Video Scripts
  • Webinar Outline
  • Webinar Promotion

AutomaticScripts Vs Funnel Scripts

Other than Funnel Scripts being tailored towards ClickFunnels, there are a few other differences as well.

The main one being that, AutomaticScripts has more options such as for Facebook ads and even Testimonials.

One big difference is that AutomaticScripts is priced on a monthly subscription model vs Funnel Scripts’ one-time fee of $797.

Another difference between the two pieces of copywriting software is that AutomaticScripts’ dashboard is a little less overwhelming and easier to use.

Other than those few differences, the offering of these two SaaS solutions is very similar. Both pieces of software will help you generate high-converting copy easily & quickly.

ScriptEngage

Script Engage copy software

Last but not least, we also have ScriptEngage, which is another great Funnel Scripts alternative.

Similar to AutomaticScripts, ScriptEngage also has an affordable payment plan starting at just $39 per month or $297 per year.

Something unique about ScriptEngage is that it creates copy based on the niche, which is pretty niche. This may also help to increase your conversions further by incorporating wording and jargon that is common to the niche. This is, of course, if ScriptEngage also covers the niche you’re in, so it’s a good idea to check that before signing up.

ScriptEngage only covers 12 niches at the moment, which is quite limited. If you’re in a less popular niche then you may want to consider one of the other options in this article. Other than that, it has a great number of script options and even monthly training webinars, similar to Funnel Scripts.

What ScriptEngage Can Do

ScriptEngage can create scripts for your:

  • Lead gen copy
  • Product sales pages
  • Upsell pages
  • Downsell pages
  • Order form bumps
  • VSL scripts
  • Email newsletters
  • Thank you pages
  • Download pages
  • Ad copy
  • Order-form pages

ScriptEngage Vs Funnel Scripts

The main difference is in the pricing, as ScriptEngage comes at a monthly cost of $39 per month, while Funnel Scripts come at the $797 one time fee.

They both come with great scripts for all parts of your funnel as I listed above, so both these programs are fairly comprehensive.

One thing that ScriptEngage has which Funnel Scripts don’t is the ability to produce copy for lead gen campaigns. This could be for LinkedIn, outreach emails, or any other type of lead gen, which is a useful feature if lead generation is your business model.

I think that the only reason that Funnel Scripts doesn’t also have this feature is that Jim Edwards the copywriter and the guy behind FS does not operate a lead-gen model in his business. He mostly writes copy for physical and digital products, and also services. You can find out more about Jim Edwards’s copywriting here.

Other than that, the only significant difference is that ScriptEngage also works based on niches. This means it may give you better results if ScriptEngage covers the niche that you’re working in as the copy can be tailored towards your specific audience.

That being said, if your niche isn’t available, it probably wouldn’t be suited. It’s also a little easier to use than Funnel Scripts, as the dashboard isn’t quite as overwhelming.

If you would like to check out ScriptEngage yourself you can do so with the link below.

Final Thoughts

That’s it! I hope you have enjoyed our list of 3 best Funnel Scripts alternatives.

If you’re unsure which one to pick, you can always try ScriptDoll first as it offers a trial for just $1.

Additionally, I would recommend going with the solution that has the options you need, and at the best price. For example, if you need lead gen scripts go for ScriptEngage. If you need scripts tailored specifically to some ClickFunnels products like the OFA Challenge then go for Funnel Scripts.

All these solutions are actually pretty good, which is why they are on this list. You can’t really go wrong with any of them, in my opinion.

GrooveFunnels vs Kartra: Which One Is Best For Your Business?

GrooveFunnels vs Kartra picture with people looking at the laptop

GrooveFunnels vs Kartra is a hot discussion in the funnel-building community because of the similarities between both platforms.

They both aim to be the all-in-one solution that lets their customers build their entire business. In this article, we are going to compare them to see which one is best for you.

Something that also caught my eye about GrooveFunnels, is that it offers a free plan. That’s something that isn’t too common for software of this kind.

But, we’ll talk more about that later on.

What Is GrooveFunnels?

GrooveFunnels image with icon

GrooveFunnels is a piece of software that lets its customers build sales funnels, send emails, and do various other tasks.

GrooveDigital, the company behind GrooveFunnels, was not founded until 2018.

The product GrooveFunnels has also only just officially launched on October 6th 2020, meaning it’s still in early stages.

Because of this, some of the features are not fully developed yet, but the most important ones are.

We’ll talk more about the features later on, but GrooveFunnels does offer a big selection which is what makes it special.

The founding members of GrooveFunnels are:

  • Mike Filsaime
  • John Cornetta
  • Matt Serralta
  • Matt Naus
GrooveFunnels Founders

Interestingly, Mike Filsaime was also actually the founder of Kartra. He decided to take a buyout and leave the Kartra project due to creative differences with his business partner.

As a result of this move, he started GrooveFunnels with the other founding members mentioned above.

Something to note though is that when someone like Mike Filsaime leaves a company, there are also often entire teams (for example, developers) that will leave with him as well.

For this reason, there are probably some additional similarities between GrooveFunnels and Kartra.

During the launch of GrooveFunnels, Mike has stated that getting a second run at creating an all-in-one business tool of this nature means that he can build it bigger and better than Kartra, with more modern technology.

That’s a big claim considering that Kartra is such a successful business SaaS solution.

However, these words are also coming from a guy with a tremendous amount of experience and respect in both the software and the online marketing industry.

In this article I am to find out which platform is best, and share all the details with you.

This platform comes with a ton of useful tools you can use to grow your business. If you want to find out exactly what GrooveFunnels has to offer with nothing left out, then you can take a look at my detailed Groove review here.

What Is Kartra?

Kartra business icon

Kartra is also an all-in-one business software solution that also helps you build and scale your online business.

The company behind Kartra is Genesis digital which was founded in 2013.

Genesis Digital was also behind many other successful SaaS tools for online businesses including EverWebinar and WebinarJam.

Mike Filsaime, who we spoke about earlier on, was also involved in both these projects.

Kartra is Genesis Digital’s most recent project which didn’t launch until 2018, so it’s not too old either. However, unlike GrooveFunnels, all of the features are fully developed.

The current head team members of Genesis Digital include:

  • Andy Jenkins (Co-founder)
  • Hector Yague (Hector Yague)
  • A.J. Robers (Chief Revenue Officer)

GrooveFunnels vs Kartra: Similarities

Other than Mike Filsaime being involved heavily in both of these projects, they also have several other similarities.

In fact, GrooveFunnels has or will have every Kartra feature, and is also promising to add more software tools that Kartra does not have.

Will Kartra respond and then begin to add more features to their platform also?

Time will tell.

However, GrooveDigital have an edge here as they have intimate insider knowledge of the blueprint behind Kartra. Because of this, they know exactly how to replicate it with modification and additional features.

In this section, I’m going to run you through the parts of these platforms that are similar, so that you know exactly what to expect if you decide to purchase either of them.

Page Builder

Both of these platforms have a brilliant page builder that lets you create several different types of websites, landing pages and funnels.

With both Kartra and GrooveFunnels, you can build squeeze pages, sales funnels, full-navigation websites, and pretty much anything else you can think of.

The main difference between their page builder is that GrooveFunnels uses more up-to-date software which also helps the pages load faster.

However, that’s not to bash Kartra in any way, as their page builder is outstanding too, and probably uses software that beats a lot of other products on the market.

Plus, GrooveFunnels will also naturally have a few more bugs than Kartra, at least in the early stages, as it’s only just launched and will naturally have a few wrinkles to iron out. But, the GrooveDigital team is working on them continuously, and they are becoming less common.

In short, they both have a great page builder, but GrooveFunnels might just have the edge due to the superior load speed, which will help any pages built by Groove to rank better in the search results.

Large Selection of Templates

Both GrooveFunnels and Kartra have a large selection of templates.

The templates aren’t just for one type of page or funnel, they have something for pretty much anything you can think of.

I haven’t counted all of them, but it looks as if Kartra currently has a few more. Although, this is to be expected, as the software has been around longer.

GrooveFunnels, on the other hand, have said that they will continuously add more templates to their library every Friday on an ongoing basis.

Regardless, both platforms have nice templates that can easily be edited with their page builder.

Email Marketing Feature

Kartra has KartraMail, while GrooveFunnels has GrooveMail.

The email marketing feature inside of GrooveFunnels is one that is still actively getting a lot of development put into it, as it’s not quite as advanced yet.

You can send broadcasts, and also build basic automation sequences, but that’s about it as of right now.

The Groove team is putting a lot of resources into developing GrooveMail as they want it to be, in time, one of the most advanced email marketing solutions with powerful automation capabilities, like ActiveCampaign.

Kartra Mail on the other hand is fully developed and is supposed to be already quite similar to ActiveCampaign, which is pretty sweet.

KartraMail has a huge number of automation triggers including popular ones like:

  • “If customer has been refunded”
  • “If recipient is an active affiliate”
  • “If recipient has visited X page”

GrooveMail will eventually also have these automation triggers, but as of right now they are only available in Kartra.

Membership Site Feature

The next similarity between Kartra and GrooveFunnels is the membership site feature.

Both platforms have a feature like this that lets you build and manage your membership sites.

They both have all the usual features that you would expect such as:

  • Drip-feed content
  • Multiple Access Levels
  • Progress Tracking
  • Advanced Analytics
  • Ont-time or subscription payment options
  • Member access via password

As Kartra and GrooveFunnels have these features, you won’t need any type of external membership software like Thinkific or Kajabi.

Checkout & Sales Feature

Kartra and GrooveFunnels also have great checkout and sales features.

The checkouts are fully customizable on both platforms, meaning you aren’t locked into one style.

They also both have great upsell features including:

  • One-click Order bumps
  • One-click Upsells
  • One-click Downsells

Powerful features like these can help you to increase your revenue considerably, so it’s great to see that both GrooveFunnels and Kartra have them.

Share Funnels

Another similarity between the two platforms is the ability to create share funnels and campaigns.

With both Kartra and GrooveFunnels, you can share your funnels and entire campaigns with other people who are using the same platform. This can also include your email sequences.

This can be especially useful if you are operating an affiliate marketing model and you want to offer a done-for-you landing page, funnel and email sequence as a bonus, or even as a paid product upsell of your own.

Network marketers would also find this feature very useful as they can give ready made funnels to members of their downline to help them build their business.

When it comes to the share funnel feature, I believe ClickFunnels started it. However, with Kartra and GrooveFunnels, it has now been taken a step further as you can share other assets, such as email autoresponder sequences, not just the funnels.

I haven’t tested it out yet, but I recently heard that helpdesks are also shareable on both these platforms.

Video Hosting Feature

When Kartra first chased out, one of the main features that really caught my eye was that it also comes with video hosting.

Now to see the newcomer, Groove, also having video hosting is really exciting!

In my opinion, the lack of video hosting in ClickFunnels is one of its biggest let downs. It’s a great platform, but without video hosting you’re soon gonna run up extra costs on other 3rd party services.

Video hosting will be really useful for those of you with membership sites, sales pages that use a video sales letter (VSL), or any other place where you would need to host your own videos.

Having a feature like this built-in will save you at least $50 per month as you won’t need to go for a platform like Vimeo or Wistia.

The video hosting feature inside of GrooveFunnels and Kartra is also extremely advanced. For example, you can tag a lead based on how much of your video they watched, and then send them emails based on the point where they switched off. That’s pretty powerful!

Now, some people might think, “I don’t need video hosting, I can just host them on YouTube privately and then embed them into my landing pages and members areas.”

Well, yes, you can do that. However, there are two problems with this.

Firstly, if you are hosting your VSL on YouTube with the intention to use it to sell a product and then the viewer clicks on your video, they’ll be taken away from your landing page and straight to YouTube.

Secondly, if you’re hosting your videos on YouTube and then embedding them into a paid members area, you’ll have to set them to public in order for them to be viewable in your members area. But that then means that everyone else on YouTube will also be able to see your videos.

So, basically you’d need to host them privately.

And why not take advantage of the free video hosting feature inside GrooveFunnels or Kartra?

Helpdesk Feature

Both platforms also have a help desk feature that you can connect to your websites, pages, or membership sites.

They allow your customers to easily contact you, meaning you will be able to provide better customer service.

Again, it’s nice to see that both platforms have this feature, as it saves you from having to get an external tool for this.

Calendar Feature

Another feature that both of Kartra and GrooveFunnels have is the calendar feature.

This feature allows you to book appointments with your clients and manage your time better.

It’s a rather small feature compared to some of the other ones, but it could prove to be useful if you own a service-based business, especially for something like consulting.

Affiliate Management and Tracking Suite

If you want to recruit affiliates to promote your own products and services then both GrooveFunnels and Kartra offer this feature.

Recruiting affiliates to promote for you is an extremely effective way to grow your business quickly.

Both of these all-in-one business solutions offer an easy to use affiliate management tool with powerful tracking and reporting capabilities.

Using either Kartra’s affiliate management suite or Groove’s solutions known as GrooveAffiliate, you can do the following:

  • Offer flexible commissions
  • Review affiliate applications
  • Approve affiliates
  • Create custom landing pages for affiliates
  • Offer payouts via PayPal
  • Set payment milestones
  • Tag your affiliates
  • Offer layered commission tiers
  • Set up your program as either transaction or subscription-based
  • Provide your affiliates with promo tools

Affiliate Program

The next similarity between GrooveFunnels and Kartra is that they both have a pretty good affiliate program.

Kartra pays out 40% recurring commissions to all its affiliates, while GrooveFunnels pays 20% to free members and 40% to paid members.

The GrooveFunnels affiliate program has also gone one step further than Kartra by offering a tier-2 level commission on top of the 20 or 40% commission, depending on your membership level.

So, if you’re on the 20% commission rate for direct sign-ups, you will then also get an additional 5% commission on anyone who signs up through someone who you have signed up.

And if you’re on the 40% commission structure, then your tier-2 commission increases from 5% to 10%.

Both affiliate programs have a ton of material for affiliates to use, including:

  • Banners
  • Email swipes
  • Ad Swipes
  • etc.

If you’re an affiliate with a funnel-building audience, promoting either of these platforms could be pretty lucrative for you. Plus, you would be promoting two of the best pieces of software on the market, so you can feel good about it too.

Both of these programs are good for beginner affiliate marketers and experienced veterans alike.


GrooveFunnels vs Kartra: Differences

As you have seen above, there are quite a lot of similarities between Kartra and GrooveFunnels.

Below, we’ll be taking a look at the key differences between both of these platforms.

What GrooveFunnels Has That Kartra Doesn’t Have

Here are the main features only available in GrooveFunnels.

Once it’s fully developed, there may also be some parts of the individual features that are only available in GrooveFunnels. But, we’ll have to wait and see for that.

Webinar Feature

The first feature that is available in GrooveFunnels but not Kartra is the webinar feature.

GrooveFunnels lets you host both pre-recorded (evergreen) webinars and live webinars.

This is not available inside of Kartra, so if you’re using that platform then you’ll need to integrate with something like Everwebinar and WebinarJam.

This means, if you are looking to use webinars, it would make sense to go for GrooveFunnels.

GrooveKart

GrooveKart is the E-commerce platform by GrooveDigital. If you sign up for GrooveFunnels premium or get the lifetime deal (check here if it’s still available), you will get access to it.

It’s similar to Shopify in the sense of what it does, but the cool thing about it is that all the apps are built-in for free. With Shopify, you gotta pay extra for them.

GrooveKart also has some great educational material on things like traffic and copyrighting to help you grow your business.

Faster Page Loading Times & Better Page Builder

Mike Filsaime left the Kartra project to start GrooveFunnels with his partners. 

GrooveFunnels uses more up-to-date software on the page builder. For this reason, it’s easier and more intuitive to edit the pages.

All the landing pages and funnels built with Groove are done so by using HTML. This means that your landing pages and websites will load much faster for your visitors, which will mean there’s less chance of them getting frustrated waiting for your page to load and then leave, which is what can happen with slower page builders.

If your pages are loading quickly then you’ll also get an additional SEO benefit as Google now awards higher rankins to pages that load faster, especially for mobile.

If you’re looking to use SEO to generate organic traffic, this (and the next feature) would be a big reason for you to pick GrooveFunnels.

GrooveBlog

GrooveBlog is the blogging platform that will be quite similar to WordPress. It will also have an open-source plugin store, meaning 3rd party developers can upload their own plugins. 

The blog pages will be easy to edit and also be SEO-friendly. To have something like this inside of your funnel-builder is awesome. 

  • GrooveQuiz and GrooveSurvey

Kartra also doesn’t have any features for Quizzes and Surveys.

You can build basic ones by connecting the buttons, but it’s nothing like the features designed for these purposes inside of GrooveFunnels. 

What Kartra Has That GrooveFunnels Doesn’t Have

Kartra also has some features that aren’t available in GrooveFunnels.

Although, I could also imagine that later on GrooveFunnels will eventually add all of these features, as they’re clearly looking to do one better than Kartra.

  • It’s a finished Product

This first point isn’t a feature, but it’s the fact that Kartra is a finished product.

With GrooveFunnels, you’ll still be waiting on certain features. Every single feature inside of Kartra is available and fully developed. 

If you want all the features right now for whatever reason, going for Kartra may be the right option. However, you could also look for software that integrates with GrooveFunnels, if you don’t want to miss out on the future of Groove. 

  • BAM – Behavioral-Adaptive-Marketing

BAM or Behavioral-Adaptive-Marketing is a feature that lets you match what your visitors and leads see, based on their behavior.

With this feature, the pages, emails, copy, and offers that you create will adapt to the behavior of your visitors and leads.

This is a killer feature that can help lift your conversions, and as of right now, it’s only available in Kartra. GrooveFunnels may add this later on, but they have not mentioned anything about it yet.

  • Kartra Agency Feature

The Agency feature is only available in Kartra.

As the name suggests, this feature is extremely useful for agencies. It allows you to sell Kartra accounts and manage them as well. You get them for a 40% discount but can sell them for any price you wish.

For example, you can build an entire funnel for a client with emails, helpdesks, etc.  and charge $2,000 for the setup, plus a $500 per month retainer for managing it.

Your monthly cost would only be 40% less of what a Kartra account usually costs, and if the client stops paying you, you can revoke access.

  • Better Automation sequences (As of right now) 

As of right now Kartra also has better automation sequences.

GrooveFunnels will eventually catch up with Kartra, but right now it only has the basics. That being said, you can easily integrate GrooveFunnels with an autoresponder of your choice, if you do need advanced automation sequences.

Kartra Drawbacks

Compared to GrooveFunnels, Kartra has various drawbacks. In this section, we are going to take a look and see what these limitations are.

No free plan

Firstly, it does not have a free plan.

The starting price for Kartra is $97 per month, while GrooveFunnels has a completely free plan.

Slow pages

The pages inside of Kartra are not the fastest, as it uses the older technology if you are comparing it to GrooveFunnels.

From my experience, Kartra pages can take anywhere from 3 to 7 seconds to load, depending on the size.

This could cost you conversions in some cases, and is also a problem if you’re looking to use SEO to generate organic traffic.

Fewer features

As you may have noticed throughout this article, GrooveFunnels has more features.

To give you a direct overview, here’s a quick recap of features only inside of GrooveFunnels:

  • Webinars (Pre-recorded & live)
  • Blogging feature
  • GrooveKart (E-commerce platform)
  • Survey feature
  • Quiz feature

While at first glance these features may not seem like that big of an impact, they are. For all of those features, you would need entirely separate pieces of software that could easily cost you a couple of hundred bucks per month combined.

For example, GrooveKart would be comparable to Shopify. But, with all the paid apps you would need for Shopify, that would cost you at least $70-$90 per month. 

Smaller community

Despite Kartra being older, it has a smaller community.

This isn’t anything to be ashamed of, as GrooveFunnels has seen some exponential growth this year. However, fewer people using the platform also means you’ll find it a little harder to network or get “community help”.

That being said, you may be someone who prefers a smaller community.

Kartra’s Facebook group has 21,000 members compared to GrooveFunnels’ 100,000.

21,000 for an online business group is still quite big in all fairness to Kartra.

GrooveFunnels Drawbacks

GrooveFunnels doesn’t have as many drawbacks, but the main one of course being that it’s still in early stages. Other than that, there isn’t much at all that you could complain about.

Still in Early Stages

GrooveFunnels is still in very early stages.

This is the biggest drawback with the software, as it means:

  • Some features are not available at all
  • Some features are still being developed & improved
  • There are a few bugs (although they are becoming less frequent)

Because of the list of features that this platform has, it still is a great offer, even if it would stay the way it is.

Still, this is a drawback and it’s the biggest one with this platform. Other than that, there are only minor limitations.

Features On Lower Plans

With Kartra, even on the lowest plans, you get access to all features, apart from Kartra agency.

This isn’t the case with GrooveFunnels, as you need to have the premium plan to get access to all features.

Of course, the other plans still have great value, but this could be seen as a drawback if you were looking at one of the lower plans.

In the lifetime deal, you also get access to all features, so it’s an incredible deal, but we’ll talk more about that later on.

Kartra: Pros & Cons

Kartra is a solid all-in-one platform that could help you build an online business. To give you a clear overview, I’ve laid out all the pros and cons below.

Kartra Pros:

  • Fully-developed
  • Powerful Automation
  • All-in-one platform
  • Nice templates
  • BAM (Behavioral Adaptive Marketing)
  • Good list of features

Kartra Cons:

  • No free plan
  • Older page builder
  • Slow pages
  • Fewer features compared to GrooveFunnels

GrooveFunnels Pros & Cons

GrooveFunnels is still in beta, but is evolving quickly and has seen some exponential growth over the past couple of months. Take a look at the recap of the pros and cons below.

GrooveFunnels Pros:

  • Free plan available
  • Big Community
  • Extremely large list of features
  • Fast pages
  • Great page builder
  • GrooveKart platform included
  • Lifetime deal available (As of October) 
  • All-in-one platform
  • Nice templates

GrooveFunnels Cons:

  • Still in early stages (few bugs, not finished features)
  • No BAM or Agency Feature

GrooveFunnels vs Kartra: Pricing

Now that we have taken a look at what features both platforms have to offer, let’s see at what cost they both come.

Kartra Cost

Kartra has four main plans, with the lowest one starting at $99 per month.

Something that I do like about Kartra’s pricing is that you get access to all features, even on the starter plan (apart from Kartra agency.)

The Kartra pricing plan table

What I don’t like as much about Kartra’s pricing is the resources available such as the custom domains or bandwidth if you’re on the starter plan.

50gb bandwidth isn’t a lot, so if you are hosting videos, you’ll probably use that up with a couple of thousand visitors.

Overall though, I would say Kartra’s pricing plans are fair. If you were to buy all the features separately, they would cost you a lot more as well. 

GrooveFunnels: Cost

As mentioned a couple of times throughout this review, there may still be a lifetime option available. Before we jump into that though, let’s take a look at the regular plans.

In the image below, you can see the features and costs of each plan. Of course, there is a completely free plan which lets you build pages, sell your products, and also gives you access to the GrooveAffiliate platform.

If you were to add up the costs of all the tools you would need to get the features available in any of the plans below, you’ll realize what an incredible deal GrooveFunnels is offering.

The GrooveFunnels pricing list

GrooveFunnels Lifetime Deal

GrooveFunnels’ cost is already extremely low compared to if you were to buy separate tools for every feature.

However, there may still be an even better deal available.

As of October 2020, you can still get access to everything inside of GrooveFunnels for a one-time payment of $1397.

This deal is only available for a limited time, and a certain number of people, after which it will be discontinued.

To check whether it’s available follow the instructions below:

  • Step 1: Join GrooveFunnels for free here (No credit card required)
  • Step 2: In your dashboard, hit “upgrade”
  • Step 3: Scroll through the page to see any available deals

If this deal is available, it’s worth considering, to say the least.

To put this into perspective, you would be paying around the cost of 4 months’ worth of GrooveFunnels premium, and then you’ve got it free forever.

GrooveFunnels premium is already an incredible deal, purchasing separate tools for all the features could easily cost you thousands of dollars per year.

GrooveFunnels vs Kartra: Which Is Best?

Throughout this GrooveFunnels vs Kartra comparison, we’ve seen a close battle.

I wouldn’t necessarily say that there’s a winner, as they both have tremendous value for marketers and business owners.

Kartra could work exceptionally well if you own some type of agency, thanks to the agency feature. Or, it could also be the right choice for you, if you’re an experienced marketer looking to utilize the BAM feature, as well as the advanced automation sequences.

GrooveFunnels on the other hand could work incredibly well for you if you are willing to wait for all the features. Once, the software is fully developed, it will have everything you need to build a business, and you probably will rarely ever need another SaaS tool again.

GrooveFunnels could also be a good option if you are starting and want to use the free plan.

Either way, both of these platforms have some powerful features for a great price. You can use the links below to check them out for yourself.

GrooveFunnels vs ClickFunnels: The Funnel Builder Showdown

GrooveFunnels vs ClickFunnels - people in a business meeting

If you have been thinking about purchasing a funnel builder, you may have come across the popular solution ClickFunnels.

The problem with ClickFunnels though, is that it can get pretty expensive and it also doesn’t have video hosting, which can be quite annoying when building membership sites, or if you need a place to host your video sales letters (VSL).

That’s why today, I’m going to be comparing GrooveFunnels vs ClickFunnels to help you find the solution that is suited best to your business.

Something that did catch my eye about GrooveFunnels is that they do also offer a free plan, which is quite rare for a funnel builder. We’ll talk more about this later on though.

What Is ClickFunnels?

ClickFunnels is the most popular funnel building software on the market.

It was founded by Russell Brunson in 2014 and has since then grown a massive community of marketers, small business owners, and entrepreneurs.

ClickFunnels also was one of the first funnel builders to be somewhat of an “all-in-one” platform that also lets you:

  • Manage your affiliates
  • Build membership sites
  • Host webinars
  • Build checkouts
  • Send emails

What Is GrooveFunnels?

GrooveFunnels is an all-in-one business and marketing software suite that has been created by by the company GrooveDigital.

The company GrooveDigital was not founded until 2018, but GrooveFunnels itself was only released in April 2020 in beta. GrooveFunnels officially launches on October 6th.

For this reason, it’s still a developing product until its release date, which means some of the features are not available yet.

However, the most important features are already live for you to use, meaning it does more than enough to help you build an online business.

Once the software is fully developed, it will have by far the biggest selection of features.

GrooveFunnels was founded by:

  • Mike Filsaime
  • John Cornetta
  • Matt Serralta
  • Matt Naus
GrooveFunnels Founders

GrooveFunnels vs ClickFunnels: Similarities

Other than the name, there are also several other similarities between GrooveFunnels and ClickFunnels.

Some of these include:

  • Ease of use
  • Ready-to-use funnel templates
  • Membership sites
  • Affiliate management tool
  • Email autoresponder feature
  • Learning curve
  • Share funnels
  • Drag & drop builder
  • Shopping cart feature
  • Upsell/downsell pages
  • A/B testing
  • Affiliate program
  • Community
  • Customer service

Ease of Use

Both GrooveFunnels and ClickFunnels are quite easy to use.

They have a nice dashboard that lets you access all features with ease.

Both platforms do not require any coding or tech knowledge, and there is also no need to worry if you don’t have any experience with building funnels or websites.

Ready-to-use Funnel Templates

Another similarity between GrooveFunnels and ClickFunnels is that they both come with ready-to-use funnel templates.

These templates are ready to use, you only have to plug-in your product and copy, then you’re good to go.

Both platforms have templates for all different kinds of funnels, although it does look like ClickFunnels has a few more. This is to be expected, as ClickFunnels has been in development for a lot longer, meaning they have built more templates.

Still, both ClickFunnels and GrooveFunnels have templates that are:

  • Ready-to-use
  • High-converting
  • Easy-to-edit

Membership Sites

GrooveFunnels and ClickFunnels can both be used to build membership sites.

Both membership site builders have:

  • Drip-feed content
  • Multiple access levels
  • Templates for landing pages & membership area

Affiliate Management Tool

ClickFunnels and GrooveFunnels also come with an affiliate management tool.

This means you will be able to recruit and manage affiliates directly from the dashboard in each platform. You can set up custom commissions, links and have a closed or open affiliate program with both ClickFunnels and GrooveFunnels.

Email Autoresponder Feature

Another similarity is that both ClickFunnels and GrooveFunnels have an autoresponder feature.

GrooveMail, the autoresponder feature inside of GrooveFunnels is ready to use, but it is not fully developed yet. However, it’s worth noting that Mike Filsaime and John Cornetta are planning to make GrooveMail as advanced as ActiveCampaign and GetResponse once it’s fully developed.

ClickFunnels’ follow-up funnels are fully developed but don’t quite have as many automation triggers (or rules, they are called in ClickFunnels) as for example ActiveCampaign.

That being said, the follow-up funnels are still more than enough to build effective email marketing campaigns.

You can also integrate ClickFunnels and GrooveFunnels with any other email marketing software if you needed to.

Learning Curve

Despite both GrooveFunnels and ClickFunnels being easy to use, they also have a learning curve.

This is because it will naturally take you some time until you fully understand the platform’s features and how they work. It’s not like a massive learning curve like you may know from other SaaS tools, it’s more just getting used to the platforms.

Share Funnels

Something that is also quite cool about both of these platforms is the ability to create share funnels.

Using a unique link (or code for GrooveFunnels) you can share your entire funnel with another user in minutes.

It doesn’t matter whether it’s a membership site, a squeeze page, or your sales page, it can easily be shared with another user of the platform.

Drag & Drop Page Builder

GrooveFunnels and ClickFunnels also have an easy-to-use drag and drop page builder.

Both page builders work similarly by letting you drag and drop your sections and elements to build your landing pages and funnels.

Combined with the beautiful templates that we spoke about earlier, GrooveFunnels and ClickFunnels make it easy to build high-converting funnels.

Shopping Cart Feature

Another feature that is similar inside of ClickFunnels and GrooveFunnels is the shopping cart feature.

Both platforms easily let you build high-converting checkouts that you can use for your sales pages.

ClickFunnels and GrooveFunnels also let you add order bumps onto your cart to help you make more sales.

Upsell & Downsell Pages

Upsell and downsell pages are essential if you want to make the most out of every sale.

Both platforms let you build upsell and downsell pages that can even process purchases with just one-click if the payment information is stored (i.e they have made a purchase before).

A/B Testing

Another similarity between the two platforms is the full A/B testing functionality to help you find the best converting version of your pages.

This means there will be no need for split-testing your pages manually and trying to figure out which one converts best.

ClickFunnels and GrooveFunnels will track your results and help you determine a winner so that you don’t have to.

Affiliate Program

GrooveFunnels and ClickFunnels also have pretty solid affiliate programs.

They are both free to join and give you the ability to promote their platforms to earn commissions.

On both affiliate programs, the commission rates vary from 20-40% depending on which tier and plan you are on.

One way the two affiliate programs vary though is that ClickFunnels also has a wide range of other products that you can promote, for example, Russel Brunson’s books and courses. I can tell you from experience, they convert very well.

GrooveFunnels, on the other hand, is still new and so, at the moment you can only promote the GrooveFunnels all-in-one software suite via the Groove affiliate program.

Community

GrooveFunnels and ClickFunnels have the two biggest communities in the funnel building niche, as they both have over 100,000 members.

Both platforms have Facebook groups where you can network and get any help if you need some. ClickFunnels does have the upper hand in terms of group members as they have 253,000 vs GrooveFunnels’ 101,000.

That being said, GrooveFunnels has done pretty well when you consider that it’s only just launching.

Customer Service

Last but not least, they are also similar in terms of customer service.

They both provide:

  • Ticketing support
  • Chat support
  • Email support

One thing to note though is that ClickFunnels only provides “priority support” on the $297 per month plan. otherwise, you’ll have to contend with ticketed support.

From my experience, they always get back to you and are very helpful. They sometimes even record an over the shoulder video to show you how to do certain tasks. However, you’ll usually need to wait for several hours for them to get back to you each time.

If you are on the two comma club x plan at $2,497 you also get access to the VIP phone support.

GrooveFunnels vs ClickFunnels: Differences

Now that we have taken a look at the similarities between ClickFunnels and GrooveFunnels, let’s take a look at the differences between them.

What ClickFunnels Has That GrooveFunnels Does Not Have

Here are some of the things that ClickFunnels has, but GrooveFunnels doesn’t.

FunnelFlix

The first part of ClickFunnels which isn’t available in GrooveFunnels is FunnelFlix.

FunnelFlix is a giant selection of courses and training created by Russel Brunson and the ClickFunnels team to help members succeed with funnels.

If you are on the ClickFunnels platinum plan, you will also get access to the platinum section of FunnelFlix.

It doesn’t only have educational material on funnels, but also on copywriting, marketing, and traffic.

The platinum section also includes recordings of events that had ticket prices of up to $25,000, so to get them included with your account is pretty sweet.

FunnelFridays

Something else that is also exclusive to ClickFunnels is the Funnel Fridays series.

Every Friday, ClickFunnels hosts a show where they let you watch over their shoulders while they build a high-converting sales funnel.

Attending these streams can be extremely helpful, especially when you combine this with Funnel Scripts or FunnelFlix.

The cool thing about FunnelFridays is also that every week they create a different type of funnel.

So, no matter whether you’re looking to build a membership funnel, lead funnel or whatever type of funnel you want, one of the series will walk you through it.

Funnel Hackathon

Last but not least, also only available in ClickFunnels is the Funnel Hackathon.

This is a weekly coaching program, where you and other ClickFunnels users can build your funnels from start to finish.

There will be a coach who will guide you through the entire process, and help you with the parts of your funnel that need improving.

The Funnel Hackathon is only available in ClickFunnels’ $297 per month platinum plan.

What GrooveFunnels Has That ClickFunnels Does Not Have

GrooveFunnels clearly aims to set a new standard in terms of features in the funnel-building category. Below, you can see all the things it has which ClickFunnels doesn’t.

If you need most of them, then that’s definitely a reason to consider GrooveFunnels over ClickFunnels.

A Free-Forever Plan

First of all, it has a free forever plan.

If you join GrooveFunnels now, you can get the core features (GroovePages + GrooveSell) for completely free. You can connect custom domains, build pages, and sell your products.

ClickFunnels on the other hand doesn’t have a free plan, so that is something only available in GrooveFunnels.

GrooveVideo

Another quite big feature only available in GrooveFunnels is video hosting.

Videos that you use in your membership sites or on your sales pages will need to be hosted somewhere other than YouTube.

Normally, you would need a video hosting platform like Wistia or Vimeo for this, but GrooveFunnels has this built-in, while ClickFunnels doesn’t.

This means, if you use ClickFunnels you will need to use an external service that can often cost $99 per month.

GrooveCalendar

GrooveCalendar is a calendar feature as the name suggests.

This feature helps you book appointments and manage your time. If you’re a service-based business or offer consultations, then you might use something like Calendly already.

But, GrooveFunnels has it built it, meaning you would save additional subscription costs.

If you do need a calendar app, then this could be another reason why GrooveFunnels might be a better fit for you.

GrooveDesk

GrooveDesk is a helpdesk feature which is also directly built into GrooveFunnels.

ClickFunnels doesn’t have anything like this, meaning you’ll have to get another external tool for this purpose as well.

GrooveBlog 

GrooveBlog is the blogging feature inside of GrooveFunnels.

Although, it’s still in development as of right now, the plans they have for this feature are pretty big.

In 2021, there will be a plugin store/marketplace where 3rd party developers can contribute new plugins making it an open-source platform similar to WordPress.

This is one of the GrooveFunnels features that I am extremely excited for, as I enjoy both blogging and building sales funnels.

And, up until now, there hasn’t been a funnel builder which has managed to combine the two, so I’ve always had to continue using WordPress when creating blogs.

Faster Load Times 

The pages you build inside of GrooveFunnels will also load much quicker than anything built in ClickFunnels.

If your pages load faster, they will also convert better and therefore make you more money. Plus, they will also rank better in Google and other search engines.

Quiz Builder 

GrooveQuiz is a feature that lets you quiz your audience. This can be a great way to engage your audience and it’s only available inside of GrooveFunnels.

That being said, you can build basic quizzes in ClickFunnels too by interlinking the buttons and pages, however, this is rather limited compared to what Groove has to offer.

Hosted Webinars

Another feature that isn’t available in ClickFunnels is the ability to host webinars.

GrooveWebinar lets you host both your regular webinars and your auto-webinars (or evergreen), while ClickFunnels doesn’t.

If you decide to use ClickFunnels you will also need an external hosting service to host your webinars which is quite annoying, as it’s another additional cost.

GrooveSurvey

GrooveSurvey is the survey builder inside of GrooveFunnels.

You can use this feature to get detailed information about your customers allowing you to make tweaks in your marketing or business in general to increase your sales.

ClickFunnels Drawbacks

Despite its popularity, ClickFunnels does have some drawbacks compared to GrooveFunnels. You may find that these limitations don’t really impact you, but that depends on your business.

If they are problems that affect your business, then you should consider using something like GrooveFunnels instead.

Limited Basic Plan

The first ClickFunnels drawback is how limited their basic plan is.

In their basic plan, you don’t get access to:

  • Priority support
  • Affiliate management
  • Follow-up funnels

Plus, it also has some annoying limits on the number of pages, funnels, and domains.

Despite these limitations, this plan does cost $97 per month which probably isn’t the best value for the money.

No Video Hosting

ClickFunnels also has no video hosting functionality meaning you will need something external like Vimeo or Wistia which will cost you at least $49 per month.

If you are hosting videos for an entire membership site, this will usually cost you at least $99 per month.

Pages Do Not Rank Well In Google

The pages built inside of ClickFunnels are quite slow and you have limited control over them.

If you’re looking to get traffic from search engines, then using ClickFunnels will not be your best bet. GrooveFunnels on the other hand has fast-loading pages meaning it’s better for SEO.

No blog feature

If you want to have a blog, there is no way of having it inside of ClickFunnels.

As mentioned earlier, this means you will need a separate blog on something like WordPress. And, it can also be quite tricky to get your ClickFunnels pages on the same domain as your WordPress pages.

You can integrate the two, but then ClickFunnels pages often load even slower. Or, you can use a subdomain that isn’t as good for your SEO and can also cause a feeling of disconnect between your blog and funnels.

Affiliate Management Tracking Is Not Great

Another ClickFunnels drawback is the affiliate management tool. While the options you have managing your affiliates are alright, the tracking is limited.

More importantly, the tracking doesn’t seem very accurate.

ClickFunnels uses their own affiliate management software (BackPack) for their affiliate program. As a ClickFunnels affiliate myself, I have noticed that sometimes the tracking is off.

There is also quite a bit of talk in the ClickFunnels affiliate community that people have not been credited for some referrals, or they have noticed that they have been credited for a referral that has someone else’s tracking ID.

Fortunately, this doesn’t seem to happen often, but it does happen.

This is a shame, and I hope that ClickFunnels will fix this soon, because it is honestly a good product, and they have one of the best affiliate programs in the industry.

However, because of this, I would have concerns about using BackPack myself to promote my own products at the moment.

When it comes to using BackPack and tracking your affiliates, the information you get for each affiliate is:

  • Trials signed up
  • Earnings (Daily, weekly, monthly)
  • When they joined
  • Payment email

GrooveFunnels on the other hand gives you detailed analytics for every single affiliate.

For example, you can see how much traffic each affiliate is referring to you. Now, if one affiliate is sending thousands of visitors and none are converting, you can check the traffic quality.

If the affiliate is sending spammy or non-targeted traffic, you’ll probably want to remove them or at least warn them, as it can mess up your advertising pixels.

With ClickFunnels, you wouldn’t know if this is the case as you can’t see how many visitors are coming from each affiliate.

No free plan

Unlike GrooveFunnels, ClickFunnels doesn’t have a free plan.

This means if you want to use it, you’ll have to go straight onto the $97 per month plan. Of course, there is a free trial, but it’s not quite the same as a free-forever plan.

GrooveFunnels Drawbacks

Although GrooveFunnels has a much smaller quantity of drawbacks, no software is perfect. It also has its disadvantages and the main reason for them is that it’s still in the early stages.

If this is something that you can’t tolerate, then consider using the ClickFunnels trial to see whether that is the best option for you.

Still in Beta

The first and probably biggest drawback is that it’s still in beta. A lot of the features inside of this software are still being developed, meaning you don’t have a finished product.

Additionally, you might not be sure that it even does what it promises to. However, given that it’s already a killer platform and has founders with a successful track record of creating SaaS tools, I think it’s almost certain that it will hold its promise.

The main part of this drawback is only in the short term, which is that it’s not fully developed yet.

Smaller Community (but, it’s still in the early stages)

GrooveFunnels has a smaller community than ClickFunnels. That is to be expected though, as it’s still in early stages.

In case you forgot, here are the sizes of the Facebook groups of both platforms:

  • ClickFunnels 253,000 members
  • GrooveFunnels 100,000 members

Given that GrooveFunnels is in such early stages, you can probably expect the size of their community to catch up in the following years.

Setting up custom domains is slightly more tricky

Another small drawback of GrooveFunnels is that setting up custom domains is slightly more tricky.

This isn’t a biggie and after setting them up once, you’ll get used to it. But, it can be annoying the first time setting up, as you have to go into the DNS settings of your domain.

GrooveFunnels vs ClickFunnels: Pricing

To help you find the best software for you, I’ve also explained the pricing in full below.

GrooveFunnels Pricing

GrooveFunnels has a free plan as I did mention throughout this article. But the paid plans are just as good value for money.

For example, the silver plan gives you almost an identical set of features as ClickFunnels’ $297 per month plan. The difference being you get video hosting instead of webinars.

At $199 per month, GrooveFunnels Gold is a pretty good deal too, as you also get access to GrooveBlog, GrooveDesk, and GrooveCalendar.

The platinum plan at $299 per month, gives you access to everything offering inside of Groove including the E-commerce platform GrooveKart.

The GrooveFunnels pricing list

Depending on when you are seeing this, there may still be a lifetime deal available for GroovePlatinum.

If the deal is available, you can get lifetime access to everything inside of GrooveFunnels for $1397. Considering this normally costs $299 per month, that is a crazy deal.

To check whether The lifetime deal is still available, just follow these steps:

  • Step 1: Join GrooveFunnels for free here (No credit card required) <<<<<< Insert aff link
  • Step 2: In your dashboard, hit “upgrade”
  • Step 3: Scroll through the page to see any available deals

This deal is meant to stop early October, but you can check whether it’s still available by following the instructions outlined above.

ClickFunnels Pricing

As mentioned earlier, ClickFunnels does not have a free plan and starts at $99 per month.

Below, you can see the pricing table with everything that comes in each plan.

ClickFunnels pricing list

Something to note though is that to get access to all features, training, and coaching, you have to be on the $297 per month plan.

Here is a list of features not available in the $97 per month plan:

  • Follow up funnels
  • Affiliate management tool
  • Hackathon coaching
  • Priority support
  • Additional training of FunnelFlix

Before I wrap up my GrooveFunnels vs ClickFunnels comparison, I wanted to show you this video of Groove’s CEO, Mile Filsaime, explaining the differences between Groove and ClickFunnels to a fellow marketing expert, Mike Long.

Of course, Mike is bias when talking about his own product, but I thought this video is helpful as he breaks the comparison down in a very clear way.

Final Thoughts – ClickFunnels Vs GrooveFunnels – Which Is Best?

As you have seen throughout this comparison, both pieces of software offer a solid funnel-building platform.

One of the key takeaways is that GrooveFunnels offers a free plan that has ClickFunnels’ core features which are the sales funnel builder, and the cart/sales platform. It also has a much larger quantity of features, so you might argue you get more value for your money with Groove.

However, ClickFunnels’ core offering is their funnel builder, and that’s where most of their development goes.

Because of this, and that GrooveFunnels is still in early stages, I would say that ClickFunnels wins in the funnel-building aspect.

Another aspect in which ClickFunnels wins is the educational material that they provide.

The selection of training inside of FunnelFlix is much larger than the material in GrooveFunnels’ GrooveDigital Academy. However, Mike Filsaime has said that this is also an area that will be under constant improvement, with more training courses added regularly.

Overall, I think it’s hard to pick out a winner, as they are both great for their own purposes.

ClickFunnels could be a good option for you if you’re looking for an easy-to-use funnel builder, you want to get access to their FunnelFlix training course library, and you want to plug into their large community.

GrooveFunnels could be a good option for you if you are looking for an all-in-one suite of online business tools with more features, as it can help you save thousands in annual subscription fees.

CartFlows Review – Is This Funnel Builder Plugin For WordPress Any Good?

My CartFlows WordPress plugin review

There’s no doubt about it, online businesses need an optimized sales funnel if they are going to survive and thrive in today’s markets.

Businesses are literally losing money every day without one.

However, there’s so much choice when it comes to choosing a funnel builder.

Since most of them have a few unique features and are better suited to certain types of businesses, it can be difficult to know which one is best for you.

Here I break down the features of this new WordPress funnel builder and explain exactly what you get when you buy CartFlows.

In this article, I will also tell you who this WordPress funnel builder plugin is good for and who might be better off using an alternative.

If you’re in a hurry and you want to get straight to it then you can check out the CartFlows cost and features here.

What Is CartFlows?

CartFlows is basically a sales funnel plugin for WordPress.

This continually evolving plugin allows you to create optimized funnels to increase your conversions and make more money in your business.

It was created by hardcore WordPress users, Adam Preiser (WP Crafter) and Surjay Pawer (Brainstorm Force), out of frustration at the limitations of the sales and checkout process of WooCommerce.

By using this new funnel builder plugin, website owners can now create effective funnels with up-sell, down-sell and OTO pages and take complete control of the look and functioning of the whole checkout process.

With over 10,000 active CartFlows users, this funnel builder plugin is quickly growing in popularity.

What Kind Of Funnels Can You Build With The CartFlows Plugin?

CartFlows is a dynamic plugin and you can use it to create just about any type of funnel you want. However, for some funnels, you will also need to use additional 3rd party plugins.

It is, of course, a good benefit that CartFlows can integrate with other WordPress plugins. However, for me, the fact that you have to use additional plugins to build some types (not all) of funnels is a negative, in my opinion.

Personally, I would prefer all the core functionality to be under one roof since you will not need to take the extra time to learn how to use new plugins as well as going through the learning curve with CartFlows.

Having said that, the plugin is still relatively new. Adam and Surjay are planning to record more “how-to” videos over time, so this should largely solve the issue.

Here’s a list of some of the more popular funnels people are building with this plugin:

  • Lead funnels
  • Product launch funnels
  • Membership funnels
  • Free quote funnels
  • Consulting funnels
  • Webinar funnels
  • Demo funnels
  • Application funnels

This is, by no means an exhaustive list. As I said earlier, you can pretty much build any type of funnel using this plugin.

CartFlows Plugin Features – What You Can Do With This Funnel Builder

Having looked at CartFlows, it is actually a decent competitor to leading funnel builder brands like ClickFunnels and InfusionSoft.

I particularly like that there is a free version of the plugin, however, it does, of course, have limited functionality.

On the other hand, with the pro version, you get a whole range of features.

Here are the main features that you can use:

Use Customizable Templates

There are customizable templates available with both the free and Pro version. However, at the moment they are fairly limited.

You get access to 4 free templates straight out of the box. However, there are also an additional 6 premium templates if the free ones don’t quite do it for you.

Although this may seem very limited in comparison to an alternative funnel builder like ClickFunnels, you can do a lot with these templates since they are fully customizable.

Upsell and Downsell Pages

Using an upsell and a down-sell in your funnel sequence can greatly increase the amount of money you can earn from each customer.

I particularly like the free templates feature as this is a big time-saver when it comes to building your funnel.

You can simply select a template, insert it into the correct place in your funnel, and then customize it how you want.

With CartFlows Pro, all the pages are fully customizable.

Use Order Bumps

Another great feature of any funnel builder worth its salt is the ability to use order bumps on your checkout pages.

Order bumps are great as they can significantly increase the cart value of your customers.

You can use this to give your customers the option to buy an additional related product at a discount, provide the option to buy additional units of a product, offer a warranty and so forth.

Customizable Checkout

If you’ve been using WooCommerce then I’m sure you’ve also felt frustrated at the lack of customization you get on the checkout page.

Fortunately, CartFlows allows you to customize all the checkout fields and take full control of the sales process.

Abandon Cart Feature

This Pro feature is essential whenever you’re selling something online.

On average, around 65% of people abandon an online shopping cart before they pay for the goods. This is a huge waste!

With CartFlows Pro, once they’ve passed the step of entering their email address, if they do abandon the cart then the plugin will follow up with them periodically on your behalf and encourage them to complete their purchase.

Can Use With Popular Page Builders

If you’re using a WordPress page builder like Elementor, Divi, or Thrive Architect then CartFlows will work for you without a hitch.

The plan is to eventually make it compatible with all WordPress page builders. While it does now work with most of them, I’m not sure if it functions with all of them.

If you want to find out if it will work with your specific page builder then you can contact CartFlows support here.

Use Custom Scripts

If you want to get more functionality then you can use the custom script option.

By simply pasting in your custom code you can get CartFlows to do a whole range of extra things for you.

Who Is CartFlows Great For?

If you’re a WordPress user then CartFlows is a good option for you since it will integrate nicely with the rest of your business.

Being a WordPress user will mean that you will likely find CartFlows very easy to use.

It’s also great for people who are on a budget as they can start off on the free plan.

However, having said that, the Pro account is also very reasonably priced compared to its competitors.

So, if you have a WordPress website and you want to collect more leads, sell digital or physical products, promote a webinar, sell a course, sell services or even just provide free quotes to your website visitors then CartFlows Pro will be a great option for you.

Who Is CartFlows Not Good For?

If you do not use WordPress and you have no intention of building a WordPress website then CartFlows is not for you.

However, don’t worry, there are many other solutions on the market that may fit your needs perfectly.

In this case, I would recommend you to check out ClickFunnels, Kartra, and SamCart.

CartFlows – What I Like About It

Integrates With WordPress

It integrates directly with WordPress and is, therefore, a great solution for anyone who has built their business around a WordPress website.

Since around 35% of websites are now built on WordPress, this is a great advantage for those businesses. However, not so much for businesses that operate from different platforms.

Integrates With All WordPress Plugins

Another advantage over some of the competitors like ClickFunnels or Kartra, for example, is that it integrates with other WordPress plugins.

This dynamic feature allows you to expand the functionality of CartFlows.

Integrates With WooCommerce

It also integrates directly with the popular WooCommerce plugin for WordPress.

So, if you’re running an eCommerce store on WordPress and you need a funnel then CartFlows is also a great choice for you.

Supports Upsells, Downsells

If you are using the CartFlows Pro plan then you will also be able to build funnels with upsells and down-sells.

This feature can increase your revenue considerably as it gives your customers the chance to buy more from you in a single transaction.

However, bear in mind that this feature is only available on the Pro account.

Integrates With Facebook Tracking Pixel

Retargeting is a highly effective online marketing strategy. Fortunately, the plugin also allows you to integrate with the Facebook tracking pixel for retargeting.

Abandoned Cart Feature

Another feature that will help you to increase your revenue is the abandoned cart feature.

Shockingly, the average cart abandonment rate is 67.57%. That’s a lot of money left on the table!

The abandoned cart feature works by following up with your customers through email who choose to abandon their cart before they make their purchase.

This is an important feature for any business that is selling physical, digital, or service-based products online.

Easy To Use

If you’re familiar with WordPress at all then you’ll likely find CartFlows easy to use.

They also have a good amount of set-up and training videos to show you how to get set up.

CartFlows – What I Don’t Like

Of course, like any platform, there are always some downsides too. Here’s what I don’t like so much about CartFlows.

Membership Areas Need An Additional WordPress Plugin Or External Solution

If you want to build a members area for your business then you will need to use a separate WordPress plugin or an external solution like Teachable or Kajabi.

Fortunately, it is more than possible to use CartFlows to create a membership funnel with one of these options, but for me, this is a minus point.

The reason I see this as a negative is that:

  1. You need to pay for an additional software solution
  2. You may also need to go through another learning curve with the software solution you choose

While other CartFlows alternatives like ClickFunnels and Kartra may be more expensive, they also provide you with the member’s area feature already included.

Another option for WordPress users would be to use ThriveApprentice, which is a plugin that comes with a ThriveThemes subscription.

ThriveThemes is priced within the same ballpark as CartFlows and also provides additional premium plugins with your membership, including their membership area solution, ThriveApprentice.

Cannot Share Funnels With Other Users

Being able to clone a funnel and share it with another user is a big advantage in my opinion.

Not only does it speed up the entire funnel building process, but you can also create funnels for your clients within your account then transfer them upon sale.

So far, the only platforms I have come across that offer this option is ClickFunnels and Kartra.

However, if you don’t need this function in your business then it is not a problem for you.

CartFlows Cost

There are two different plans to choose from, the free plan and CartFlows Pro. Here are the details of the two plans.

CartFlows Free

CartFlows offers free as well as a paid plan.

Of course, on the free plan, you will be limited in what you can do with it. However, there is actually a decent amount of functionality in this plan.

Here’s what you get access to on the free plan:

  • Access to 4 funnel page templates
  • Access to checkout pages
  • Access to thank you pages

So, if you only need a simple funnel then the free plan might work for you.

Offering the free plan is a smart move since it allows you to check out the features it offers and see for yourself just how easy it is to use.

Once you see what it can do for you then you may be tempted to upgrade to Pro so you can earn even more money from your site visitors.

CartFlows Pro

The CartFlows Pro plan is very competitively priced at $299 per year.

On the CartFlows Pro plan, you get access to all the bells and whistles.

Here’s what you can do with the Pro plan:

  • Access to premium level templates
  • Use an unlimited number of funnels
  • Use conversion-focused checkout pages
  • Edit your checkout pages
  • Provide visitors with special offers
  • Use order bumps
  • Up-sell and down-sell features
  • Abandoned cart technology
  • Full user support
  • Access to the CartFlows community
  • How-to video guides

Comparing the two plans, you can see that you do, in fact, get a lot for your money when you choose to buy CartFlows Pro.

I particularly like the up-sell, down-sell, and order bump features, as well as the conversion-focused checkout pages as these features, can increase your revenue dramatically.

Being able to edit your checkout pages is also an important feature to have, in my opinion.

CartFlows Pros & Cons

CartFlows Pros

  • Integrates with WordPress
  • Huge range of WP plugins available
  • Integrates with WooCommerce
  • Is affordable
  • Is compatible with WordPress page builders
  • Can build an unlimited number of funnels
  • Also works like a shopping cart solution
  • Has an abandoned cart feature
  • Easy to use

CartFlows Cons

  • Membership funnels need an additional WP plugin
  • No A/B split testing (at present)
  • Lack of instruction videos

CartFlows FAQ’s

Who Is Behind CartFlows?

CartFlows was founded by Adam Preiser of WP Crafter and co-founded by Sujay Pawer of Brainstorm Force. He’s also the guy who created the famous Astra theme for WordPress.

They created it to provide an integrative funnel solution for WordPress users.

Personally, I have been a follower of the WP Crafter YouTube Channel for a few years now since Adam really knows his stuff. For me, this gives CartFlows much more credibility as a good integrative funnel solution for WordPress.

Can I use CartFlows With Shopify?

As far as I am aware, it does not integrate with other platforms like Shopify, only WordPress, and WooCommerce.

Which Payment Gateways Are Compatible With CartFlows?

CartFlows can integrate with the most popular payment gateways including PayPal, Stripe, Square, Amazon Pay, Auth.net, and any other payment gateway that is compatible with WooCommerce.

CartFlows – Parting Shot

If you’re a WordPress user in need of a sales funnel then CartFlows is definitely a good choice for you.

This new funnel builder plugin for WordPress very affordable and will enable you to build pretty much any kind of funnel you might need.

CartFlows comes with a few customizable templates you can use to speed up the build process.

The plugin is easy to use, however, if you’re not that familiar with WordPress then you may have a bit of a learning curve ahead of you. That being said, knowing how to create high converting funnels is a very important skill so it is worth taking a bit of time to get this skill down.

If you’re not quite sure yet if CartFlows is for you then you can also take it for a test drive with the free plugin.

I’ve written more reviews on funnel building software as well as other products that can help you to build a business online. You can find them on my homepage here entrepreneurnut.com.

Funnel Scripts Review – Write Great Copy In Half The Time

my Funnel Scripts Review

Are you struggling to write great copy to sell your products?

Perhaps you’ve been blowing a brain cell trying to think of what to write in your email sequences that will captivate your audience?

You may have been spending a ton of money on ads only to avail in a measly amount of clicks?

Or maybe you’re trying to promote affiliate offers but people just aren’t clicking your links?

There’s no denying it, good copywriting skills is an essential part of building a successful online business.

Without it, you’ll likely make next to no money and eventually quit.

However, when you get it right then just a few small tweaks can make a huge difference.

For example, as a blogger, I was amazed the first time I made a tiny tweak to a headline based on psychological copywriting principles and saw the impact it had on both clicks and sales.

If you’ve been trying to learn copywriting yourself then you’ll already realize it’s difficult and it takes a long time to master.

The common alternative is to pay a professional copywriter to write your copy for you. If you can afford it, that is; they’re pretty expensive.

However, professional copywriter Jim Edwards and his marketing buddy, Russell Brunson have created another alternative that they say is much quicker and more cost-effective.

It’s a push-button software program that can write your sales copy for you. They call it Funnel Scripts.

Since I recently purchased this product, today, I am going to be diving deep into exactly what it can do and whether or not you really need it for your business.

So, here in my Funnel Scripts review 2020 I will give you the lowdown on the complete software, including the free headline generator you can use to test it out before you buy.

Funnel Scripts Review: What Does It Do?

Funnel Scripts has been developed to give everyone the ability to quickly create professional-level sales copy without having to pay expensive copywriters to do it for you.

It works by using templates based on some of the best performing copywriting scripts in history and structuring them around the content you input that is specific to your market, audience and the products or services you are promoting.

Jim Edwards, the creator of Funnel Scripts, has included templates to enable you to create sales copy for a large number of reasons including, ad copy, landing pages, video, and written sales letters, headlines, email sequences, webinars and more.

Basically, you spend a few minutes inputting some data about your audience, product, the benefits and so forth, then press a button. Funnel Scripts will then generate multiple variations that you can choose from. 

Who Is Funnel Scripts For?

Most businesses need to use some kind of sales copy. If you’re trying to sell your own products, promote offers as an affiliate, collect leads, you need to write ads or you need to email your subscribers then you will need to have some kind of copy.

As a blogger, I also realized that I can benefit a lot by improving the headlines of my posts.

Copywriting is a hard to learn skill and does not come naturally to most people. However, if you already have this skill then it’s probably not necessary for you to buy Funnel Scripts unless you just want a faster way of doing it.

If copywriting is something that gives you a headache, it’s a task that takes you hours without really knowing how effective it’s going to be or if you outsource it but pay a hefty price for it then Funnel Scripts will be a big benefit to you.

What I Like About Funnel Scripts

When you first buy Funnel Scripts and get inside the member’s area you will notice there is a huge amount of stuff in there for you to dive into.

There are several features I really like, but some of my favorites are the following:

A large number of scripts available

Funnel Scripts is not just a headline generator; it’s not only used for writing ad copy; it can be used for much more than just creating your email sequences.

It is a very powerful program which, gives you the ability to create copy for any kind of purpose you could imagine.

Good quality copy produced

When I first heard about Funnel Scripts, I must admit I was a little skeptical as to how good the copy it produces might be.

Many years ago I purchased a headline and sales page generator, but it was mediocre at best. However, that was around 2007 and fortunately, software has come a very long way since then.

I was more than pleasantly surprised to see that the quality of the copy produced by Funnel Scripts not only reads well, but it also keeps to the structure of professionally written copy that creates engagement.

You can create copy very quickly

There are no two ways about it, Funnel Scripts is fast.

Compared to writing copy yourself or even outsourcing it to a professional and waiting for your copy to come back, Funnel Scripts can bash out your copy in minutes.

When you use one of the script generators, it will ask you to fill in some boxes with data about your product and target audience. Depending on the script you’re using this can take around 10-20 minutes.

Then, all you do is hit the build button and wham! Your copy is generated.

The copywriting script generators will produce a few different variations for you to choose from, all of which are fully editable by you if you need to.

Copywriting training included if you want to learn this skill yourself

If you’re using Funnel Scripts then you don’t need to learn copywriting yourself.

However, knowing a bit about the formulas of creating great copy and how it leads your audience to take the action you desire will help you to get even better results with the copy you generate.

I have always been interested in copywriting and the psychology behind it.

While I do now use Funnel Scripts myself, I am still interested in and fully intend to learn more about it to improve my skills in this area.

So I was pleased to see a number of training videos that are also in the member’s area if you do have the inclination to learn more about writing great copy.

Monthly copywriting webinars

Creator, Jim Edwards, is really passionate and proactive about Funnel Scripts.

Since copywriting is a skill that is close to his heart and he wants his members to get the most out of using his product, he holds monthly training webinars that you can sign up for for free.

You can also watch the latest webinar replay in the member’s area if you can’t make it live.

He shows you how to be able to sell anything to anyone and make it seem like it’s their idea to buy from you.

What I Don’t Like About Funnel Scripts

The navigation is a bit crowded

Since there’s so much inside the Funnel Scripts members area it can take you a while to get to grips with it.

Some of the features are hidden within other tabs, which can take you some time to find where everything is when you first use it.

It’s quite expensive

The sale price of $797 might be quite steep for a lot of small businesses and solopreneurs to shell out at one time.

However, if creating effective sales copy is a big part of your business then it will save you a lot of money over time not having to pay a professional copywriter, whose fees are usually very high.

Available Scripts

In this section, I’ll share with you all the different kinds of scripts you can create and show you screenshots of each section so you’ll know exactly what’s in there.

Not only are there quite a few different categories of scripts you can generate, but each category also has several different types of scripts. This is good so you can drill down to create exactly the right kind of script you need for the right channel you are promoting through.

Online scripts
DotCom Secrets Scripts
Expert Secrets Scripts
Sales Copy Video Scripts

Funnel Scripts Pricing

Funnel Scripts used to be a yearly subscription at $497 per year.

However, in 2019 the Funnel Scripts pricing changed to $797 for lifetime access.

While this is a fairly high price to pay initially, if you will need to write good sales copy in your business on an ongoing basis then this is a better deal than the original price of Funnel Scripts.

Basically, you need to consider how important it is to you and your business to write good copy before you buy Funnel Scripts.

For example, if you need to regularly write emails to your list, headlines for your blog posts, ads, and landing pages or if you’re regularly creating ads and need them to always perform well then it may be worth it to you to invest in the Funnel Scripts lifetime deal.

Whether you should buy Funnel Scripts or not will depend on several factors. You need to weigh up the following:

  • How often you will need to create copy
  • How much money would it cost you to outsource it to a professional copywriter
  • How much time would it cost you if you decide to learn copywriting yourself
  • How much might it cost you in both time and money to do it yourself through trial and error

Funnel Scripts Free Trial

When people hear about this software they often ask, is there a Funnel scripts free trial?

The answer is, Yes.

However, while there are a large number of scripts you can create with Funnel Scripts to make copy for all kinds of reasons, there is only the Funnel Scripts free headline generator that can be used on the free trial.

If, while you’re reading this Funnel Scripts review, you’re interested in taking this sales copy generator for a test-drive then you can try the Funnel Scripts headline generator for free here.

Funnel Scripts Webinar

Jim Edwards and Funnel Scripts co-founder, Russell Brunson created an hour-long copywriting webinar that teaches some important fundamentals of copywriting that marketers and entrepreneurs need to understand.

While, of course, this webinar does also promote the Funnel Scripts product, they show you everything the software can do, what you get when you invest and how to get all your copy from sales letters, webinar scripts, ads, and even email sequences written in under 10 minutes.

If you’re not interested to buy Funnel Scripts but you do want to learn more about copywriting then I still recommend you watch this webinar.

Final Thoughts

When you buy Funnel Scripts you certainly get a lot for your money.

Russell and Jim have included scripts for all kinds of copy you might need to create.
