How To Make Money As A ClickFunnels Affiliate
So you want to learn how to make money as a CluckFunnels affiliate huh?
ClickFunnels has become one of the most popular and lucrative affiliate programs on the web in recent years. With the potential of long-term passive income on a recurring monthly basis, it’s easy to see why so many affiliate marketers are promoting their affiliate program.
If you’re thinking about getting your piece of the pie, here’s how to make money as a ClickFunnels affiliate. These are methods that have worked for me which have generated an easy 6-figures and on the way to 7.
If you decide to give it a shot, you’ll earn a whopping 40% commission on all sales that you make. You will receive that commission on a monthly basis for however long that person is a customer with ClickFunnels.
Anyone can signup for the ClickFunnels affiliate program as well. Despite the rumors out there, you don’t need to be a paying customer to be an affiliate either. You can promote ClickFunnels without even being a customer.
How The Affiliate Program Works
You will be promoting two different subscriptions when you start promoting ClickFunnels, which are the $97 and $297 plans. New customers will automatically be given a 14-day free trial, which is locked in by their credit card. This helps with conversions since they have already committed to the platform.
Your tracking cookie or “sticky cookie” becomes hard-coded into their account during the trial phase so that you’ll get the affiliate credit if they decide to move forward with their account after their free trial.
If they do move forward, you’ll be making anywhere from $40-$118 on a monthly basis from them. So you can begin to see how much you can really make if you can promote the hell out of it.
Russel Brunson (Founder of ClickFunnels) runs an affiliate bootcamp which shows you how to retire after 100 days by simply promoting the ClickFunnels affiliate program. This might seem “scammy” but trust me, it works. This is the same training that got me to where I am today.
Let’s talk some more about commissions. Let’s say you want to make $4,000 per month. You will need to refer 100 customers at the cheapest $97 plan. This can easily be done, but you will also have to factor in customers canceling their plan after the 14-day free trial as well. It doesn’t happen often, but it does happen.
Regardless of the issues that surround cancellations, ClickFunnels is definitely an affiliate program you can easily promote and build a lucrative affiliate business from. The next section will show you how I did it.

|Local Seminar||Flyers + Local Ads||$750-$1000||40 Hours|
These methods are my personal suggestions for what has worked for me. You can definitely do more promotion than this and Russell will teach you all of that in the affiliate bootcamp free training.
Free Training Giveaway
One of the most popular ways I’ve seen people making money with Clickfunnels is by giving away free training. This could be a course, eBook, webinar, seminar, consulting or something else.
I like to give away free training courses and before you ask, I don’t mean promoting free travel courses such as buy my product and I’ll show you how I traveled to 95 countries while making millions.
You need to think outside the box, really. For example, target real startup businesses, sole traders, self-employed people looking to start their own business. Provide them with free training on how to start their own business in a niche they’ve liked on Facebook or Instagram. Fitness? Camping? Hunting? Ballet? Swimming?
Let’s say you go with the swimming niche you’d provide a free business in a box training guide on how to start a swimming training program. You’ll give them a done-for-you business plan, ready to print business cards, how to get a telephone number, how to use Facebook Ads.
You’re wondering why you’re giving this away for free? It’s simple, you’re building up trust between you and the lead. There’s no point trying to make $97 or $297 upfront when you’re going to be making $480 – $1200 a year with your Clickfunnels subscription commission.
Towards the end of your training, you’ll include the website setup section, aka Clickfunnels. You’re going to offer to set up the entire thing for them, it’s free as long as they use your aff link.
Now apply this to every single niche out there, I mean there are thousands of opportunities. Stop focusing on the four categories everyone else is always promoting:
- Make Money Online
- Travel Blogging
- Real Estate
Marketing on Pinterest
Pinterest has been my biggest “cash cow” in all honesty. The thing is, people LOVE pretty pictures. If you’re a blogger and you can convey the perfect enticing message in a pretty picture, you’ll have no problem getting signups with this method.
The best part about this method is… it’s FREE!
Here’s what you do…
- Make an account with your personal brand or your own company brand.
- Go up in the search bar and search for group boards that are focused on small business. Look through the group boards and join as many of them as you can.
- Start blogging about ways that ClickFunnels can help businesses with their online sales etc.
- Create enticing Pinterest images (pins) for your blog posts.
- Sign up and get a Tailwind account. (It’s worth the money) Tailwind is a Pinterest pin scheduler. You can schedule your pins to be posted whenever you want. If you want to post 60 pins in an hour/every hour, Tailwind will do it for you.
- Publish your pins on Pinterest add them to Tailwind to be re-posted however often you want.
- Repeat this process for every blog post you end up writing.
Disclaimer: I’ve been using this Pinterest method since 2016 and it’s made me the most money out of any other method.
