After registering with Clickfunnels, you’ll be redirected to the Clickfunnels dashboard.
Inside the Clickfunnels dashboard, you will find different widgets and modules filled with information that related to your account and funnels.
Some of the widgets inside the dashboard will be:
- Favorite funnels
- Recent sales activity
- Quick links to build a new funnel, build a follow-up funnel, and send a broadcast.
- Your next steps
- Funnel sales
- Much more.
Because you just created a brand new account, the data inside the widgets will be empty but with time, it will be filled with valuable information.
The admin bar
At the top of the dashboard, you will find the Admin bar.
The admin bar will be accessible from any screen as long as you are logged-in and it contains a search bar with links to the main dashboard, funnels, follow-up funnels, backpack, help, notifications, and the account settings.
From the click funnels tab you can access all of your funnels, and to create a new funnel. You can also see all the contacts you collected and sales you’ve made with the different funnels and access the funnels’ marketplace to purchase various templates.
The follow-up funnels and backpack tabs are part of the platinum plan and can only be used if you subscribed to that plan.
The Follow-Up Funnels will let you send periodical and promotional emails to your subscribers and customers that you collected with your funnels.
That way you can stay in touch with your customers and keep the communication going.
If you don’t use the platinum plan, you can still use 3rd party apps such as Aweber to achieve the same results. Luckily it is very easy to integrate between Clickfunnels and other apps.
The Backpack tap is their platform to open your business or products to affiliate marketers that will help you to promote your business and get a commission for that.
Basically, the Backpack dashboard will help you to track your affiliates, what they sold, and how much they need to get paid.
There are many other 3rd party apps that will help you to do just that but if you have the extra budget to use the platinum plan, I highly recommend you do it because it’s easier to manage everything under one platform.
