Clickfunnels vs WordPress
In this Clickfunnels vs WordPress article today, I am going to discuss the difference between the 2 platforms. We will discuss their purpose and function to help you better understand which one meets your needs.
Many people are familiar with WordPress since it is one of the most popular website platforms online today and is fairly easy to use.
Clickfunnels on the other hand is becoming more and more popular for a variety of different and unique reasons and features that it offers.
In comparing clickfunnels vs wordpress, I will try to describe the top features and options of each web platform. My goal is to help you figure out which one will better meet your needs online in order to help you make more money.
WordPress is a CMS
WordPress is a content management system (CMS). It is a software that can be installed on your website host and it allows you a username and password to control and create a variety of functions and layouts etc for a website.
Once installed, WordPress allows you to log into an admin area and you can then build your website, page by page or post by post using the wordpress editor area.
WordPress allows you to position images, headings, video, audio and paragraphs in a variety of different ways to get the look you desire when you use their wordpress editor.
WordPress Uses Plugins
The CMS platform WordPress has thousands of different plugins available for download which can provide a variety of different features and functions for things like SEO optimization, adding email optin forms, speeding up your website loading, optimizing image loading, image galleries etc. etc..
WordPress Page Builders
Some plugins are FREE for WordPress, some have paid version which offer more features for your website. One type of plugin is called a page builder. These page builders are usually paid versions that you have to pay for but some do have a basic unpaid version that you can use for wordpress with limited features.
A WordPress page builder allows you to really change the layout and look of your website’s page or post. You can do this to a much greater degree with a variety of built in features to make your web pages look amazing!
Some page builders for WordPress include WPBakery and Elementor, Beaver Builder, WP Page Builder, Visual Composer, Page Builder, Live Composer and others. They are designed to help speed up building a website and making it look fantastic with many different layout options.
A WordPress page builder plugin makes it a lot easier for anyone to build a website once you understand the foundational ideas to putting a website together.
WordPress Website Hosting
WordPress can be installed and operated using your own chosen, quality web hosting company.
Web hosting companies like Startlogic web hosting or A2 web hosting or others you may choose. Website hosting companies make it easy to install WordPress and you get website performance and speed based on the hosting plan that you choose to pay monthly.
Hosted by WordPress
Another option is to sign up at WordPress.com. Next choose a monthly plan with the features and requirements to meet your website’s needs. You pay them a monthly fee and they will host your website for you on their platform.
Then you need to have your own specific domain name that you have registered with a domain registrar.
I like Name Cheap or Name Silo for domain names since their prices are quite cheap and they have additional, included features.
WP is specifically built to help you create and build websites. You can build landing pages and add optin boxes/forms to collect emails from visitors etc. However, the speed and performance of your web page will suffer based on your selected web hosting plan.
Better speed and performance requires a much higher web hosting plan.
ClickFunnels Builds It All
Clickfunnels is really used as a sales funnel builder. It allows you to make landing pages, squeeze pages, video sales pages and sales page using drag and drop features.
Hosted on the Cloud
It is an all in one type of platform. It is hosted on the ‘cloud’ meaning that your web hosting is included when you sign up for clickfunnels. You would then have a login and password details and be able to use it from anywhere as long as you can login.
