I’m Using Clickfunnels Now, Should I Choose Systeme Instead?


I'm Using Clickfunnels Now, Should I Choose Systeme Instead?

The full question that I answer in this post is:

Q: I’m using Clickfunnels now, should I choose Systeme instead? What do you think is best for selling a course? Anyone there who sells templates for a course? Or any designers out there?

A: No platform is perfect and you have to pick the one that best suits you and your budget.

I used a Clickfunnels (Basic plan) for several years but always thought it was way overpriced for what it offered, especially given the limitations of the Basic plan.

The people who created Clickfunnels have since released Clickfunnels 2.0 which features a drag-and-drop page editor, they’ve reduced the limitations on a Basic account and finally added an autoresponder to their Basic Plan.

But Clickfunnels have also increased the price of their Basic plan by 50% to about $150 per month.

Unaffordable and unjustifiable for people just starting out with affiliate marketing.

I switched to using Builderall which was about 30% less expensive and is a complete all-in-one marketing platform.

However, I found their user interface and particularly how you managed emails and campaigns so unintuitive and frustrating to use that I gave up working with it and went back to Clickfunnels.

I used to be a professional programmer and from that stance I had a lot of issues with how Builderall’s user interface was put together.

Let’s just say that whoever put it together thinks in a very different way to me.

Another issue I had was when they changed (increased) their pricing – it affected all users, not just new ones.

I don’t think that’s a good way to treat existing customers.

It must not have gone over well because Builderall have reduced their prices in the meantime, though it is still almost 30% more expensive than it was when I used it.

Finally, I found Systeme.

Join the Systeme All-in-One Marketing Platform

It, as far as I can see, uses exactly the same editor as Clickfunnels 1.0 so anyone who used Clickfunnels before they launched Version 2.0 will feel right at home.

That said, the editor (on both platforms) can be finicky to use at times.

However, what Clickfunnels lacks in additional services, Systeme contains by default.

And at a significantly lower price point.

Systeme is much, much better value than Clickfunnels as a result.

Clickfunnels is really designed for businesses to use rather than small-time affiliate marketers.

Systeme appeals to a wider user base.

While Clickfunnels offers a 14-day trial (or a 30-day trial if you go through this special link), anything you build during that trial period essentially stops working after the trial ends.

You can only reactivate your assets by opening a paid account.

Builderall takes the same approach.

Systeme’s free plan is free forever so you never feel pressured into upgrading to a paid plan.

Obviously upgrading is a good idea if you want to build additional resources.

Did You Know?

Did you know that Systeme offer a hassle-free migration service for your entire business?

That’s right, for absolutely free!

One of the major issues in switching marketing platforms is how you migrate your funnels, pages, courses etc from one platform to another.

In the worst-case scenario, you’d have to manually rebuild everything from scratch but only after you’ve learned how to use the new platform properly.

That means a lot of down-time for some of your online business assets.

When you sign up for Systeme Unlimited plan or any of their annual plans, they’ll handle the entire transition for you…products, pages, funnels, and customers all moved over to Systeme, at no additional charge!

The process it’s quite simple…

Sign up for their Unlimited monthly plan (at $97/mth its $50 less expensive than Clickfunnels limited Basic account) or any of their annual plans.

Simply tell them what to migrate.

They’ll give you an estimate of the time it will take, and then they will migrate your business.

Here’s what one of their customers had to say about the free migration service:

Testing Out Systeme’s Free Plan

To see if it could be really be done, I built an entire sales funnel that offers a free ChatGPT course, which includes a video training course as a lead magnet exclusively on Systeme’s free plan.

My vote goes to Systeme as an all-in-one marketing platform and I’d encourage anyone currently on a Clickfunnels 1.0 or 2.0 Basic plan to switch (I offer a bonus package even if you just sign up for a free account).

As to course templates, Systeme does include at least 2 such templates, whether your course includes videos or not.

Both templates include the course navigation menu and the module and lesson pages, all fully editable – you can see how the free course I built with Systeme looks here.

I’m sure Clickfunnels includes similar templates but I’ve never built a course with Clickfunnels.

The platform you build a course on isn’t that important though you do want one that delivers pages and videos quickly.

And from my own experience with Clickfunnels (I have a Clickfunnels 1.0 legacy account), Clickfunnels has been very slow in serving pages to browsers.

That’s a huge let-down for a service that charges a premium price.

However, what’s more important is how you market and promote the front page of a sales funnel to the right audience(s) and that’s completely separate from the platform you use to build the course or funnel.

So, to answer the question at the top of this post in a nutshell, I would recommend using Systeme rather than Clickfunnels.

It’s more capable and a fraction of the cost of a Clickfunnels account.
