Honest Review Of JayKay Dowdall’s “Funnelize”
One of the biggest hurdles a beginner affiliate marketer face is understanding how to construct high converting sales funnels.
With an endless choice of page builders, buttons, shortcodes, plug-ins and integrations it is a very overwhelming process to understand how to funnel a prospect from an email subscriber to a paying customer, or even as cold traffic to an email lead.
What happens is that 95% of of ALL newbies end up buying multiple "strategies" and "methods" but they never truly understand how to put together a sales funnel to effectively promote that particular strategy or method.
You also need to understand how to utilize boost pages properly, thank you pages, tracking pixels, HTML scripts and a whole host of mind-bending jargon which 95% of newbies just can't wrap their head around!

7. THE AFFILIATE FUNNEL
The affiliate funnels focus on promoting affiliate products by using a pre launch hype sales page, accompanied by a case study/social proof page and a review page.
An affiliate funnel is the kind of funnel I would use and these are very effective.
Potential customers need to see social proof, and they want a solution to their query/issues.
By hyping up your affiliate product and showing your followers social proof, that other people have found their solution by buying XY & Z, you will drastically increase your conversions.

The mega funnel video tutorial walks you through a super high ticket sales funnel, $5,000+, and teaches you about the funnel you need to use.
Obviously, the majority of people are not in a position to offer such a high-value service, but it is interesting to learn about scheduling sales calls and understanding the process and how it differs from a typical low ticket funnel
9 - THE OFFLINE CLIENT FUNNEL
The offline training focuses on how you can get local clients for local businesses. This is not a training module for YOU to get local clients but for local businesses to get more business by using your funnel.
In other words, you can use this funnel to drive clients to local dentists, plumbers or hairdressers, for example, and you could charge a fee for your services.
10 - THE TAGGING FUNNEL
The tagging tutorial shows you how you can tag and segment your visitors as they move through your funnel so you can show them the most suitable landing page or sales page.

11 - RETARGETING TRAINING
Now we are getting into the good stuff. Here you learn how to set up your tracking and retargeting integrations.
This part WILL seem daunting and overwhelming but trust me when I say that if you follow the steps given here, it is a piece of cake.
If you struggle then take things slow and watch the videos again.
You are shown in great detail how to install and test your:
- Facebook tracking pixel
- Google Tag Manager
- How to create custom Facebook audiences
- How to build Google custom audiences
Not only that but you are given a clear blueprint for both Facebook and Google AdWords retargeting so you can refer back to this documentation for guidance in the future when you set up your campaigns.
When it comes to retargeting things will get very confusing, and you will have to watch some of these videos more than once, I know I do!
If you feel overwhelmed, do not panic! Just go back and follow JayKay and he shows you how to paste the tracking codes into the header tag and body tag of your landing page settings.
Activating and synchronising custom audiences is the key to scaling your business because it allows you to build a data list of visitors who you can target on demand.
Running retargeting ads to previous visitors who did not buy or opt into your leadpages is a great way to increase conversion rates.
12 - EMAIL MARKETING TRAINING
The email marketing training teaches you how to initiate the first engagement with your new subscribers. 90% of marketers get this wrong because they think you are supposed to send them your lead magnet and that is it.... WRONG!
JayKay puts the record straight on this one and introduces you to the REAL way of engaging with your audience with his simple email marketing template.
There are six steps to putting together a confirmation email, did you know that?
You are then shown how to nurture your list and increase the level of "micro commitments" from your followers. This is something which increases conversions 3x when done right because it makes your subscribers physically commit to a sequence, product or sale funnel.
JayKay outlines four types of dating/nurturing emails you can use which works for him. This type of training is great as it sets you in the right mindset as a marketer and if you change up your email sequences from "buy this" to "Let me show you something valuable", you will drastically increase your results.
13 - ACTION-TAKERS BLUEPRINT
The last section is a 20-minute recap and blueprint of the entire process! This is very helpful as you can use this to go over your funnel process as a whole.
