Creating Workflows

Andrew B

In this article, we will cover an Overview of Creating Workflows in Marketing.Below is a video to help you get started!


Prior to getting started, you will need to have the following:

  • A ClickFunnels 2.0 account.
  • A funnel is created.

 

In business, it is important to personalize the experience for your customers. That way, you can share specific information according to their specific needs.

When customers visit your funnel, they might take different actions. Some will only visit your page; others will submit their information, others will buy your products, etc.

The Workflows feature in ClickFunnels 2.0  allows you to set triggers based on the customer's activity. For example, you could send automated emails to the visitors that submitted their information.
