Sales funnels are all the rage because THEY WORK! They nearly instantaneously increase your sales and the average amount a buyer spends on your website.
Now if you have researched on how to make a sales funnel, you may have come across funnel software that costs from $1,200 to $3,600 per year. Plus they make you have your sales funnel separate from your website, ugh just more to manage.
The good news is, it doesn't have to cost that much or be that complicated to build a sales funnel on your website. Or the entire sales funnel can be your website, where the homepage is the sales page or checkout. It's the perfect ClickFunnels Alternative!
In this tutorial, I cover everything you need and how to set it all up. In fact, I show you how to build 3 funnels.
- Lead Generation Funnel
- 2-Step Checkout Funnel
- Sales Funnel w/ an order bump, 2 upsells, and 1 downsell

Astra was released nearly 2 years ago, and I think I was their first user. It's the theme I use on this website and all of my websites.
