How to Integrate Clickfunnels with WordPress Using a Plugin

WordPress and Clickfunnel are probably the most popular platforms to build websites and funnels.

Combining the two will help your business to become a powerhouse, acquire more customers, and generate more sales.

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to integrate Clickfunnels with WordPress using the Clickfunnels plugin.

Why Integrating Clickfunnels with WordPress

Although WordPress is the best CMS platform to build websites, there is not really a plugin to create beautiful and converting funnels with WordPress.

Clickfunnels is an easy drag & drop builder editor very similar to Elementor and that makes the whole process very easy.

Therefore, most internet marketers and business owners are using Clickfunnels as their funnel builder instead of hiring developers to program custom codes for their WordPress website.

Because Clickfunnels is a completely different service, funnels are using different domain names and URLs than the WordPress website.

By default, all funnels are using the Clickfunnels subdomain URL in a combination of random letters and numbers.

If for example, you are using a funnel to collect leads, your funnel’ path will look similar to this:

example.clickfunnels.com/leads-hbnekd737

While for some people it is not a big deal, for many others it is and they would like to display their custom domain name.

It looks more professional when funnels are using your custom known domain name instead of Clickfunnels’ subdomain name.

After connecting Clickfunnels with WordPress, your new funnel URL will display your domain name and the link will be similar to this:

example.com/collect-leads

Now that we got this out of the way, let’s move on and learn how to connect between them.

How to Integrate Clickfunnels with WordPress

The easiest and best way to connect between the two is with the official Clickfunnels plugin.

Step 1: Install and activate the official Clickfunnels plugin for WordPress

From inside of your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins screen, and search for Clickfunnels.

Step 3: Create a URL path for your funnel

After saving the settings, navigate to Clickfunnels -> Pages and click on the Add New button.

Clickfunnels new page

In the page settings screen, you’ll have the option to choose what kind of page you would like to create, a regular page, home page, or 404 page. Make sure to select the regular page option.

In the Choose Funnel drop-down menu you’ll need to select your desired funnel in case you have more than one and in the Choose Step option select the desired step of the funnel that you would like your visitors to land on.

I recommend you to leave the Choose Step option as is so they will be land on the first step of the funnel.

Now, inside the Custom Slug field enter your desired URL path that you would like to use for your funnel without your domain name.

For example, if you would like the URL of the funnel to be example.com/free-gift, just enter free-gift inside the Custom Slug text box.

After typing your custom slug, notice that the URL link changed under the text box and it’s now showing you the full URL of the funnel, that’s great.

Copy the full funnel link and click on Save Page.

Step 4: Test the new funnel URL

After saving the new page, paste the funnel URL that we just copied in the last step in your browser window and make sure it’s displaying the right funnel and step.

After verifying that everything is working correctly, it is a good time to share the new URL and start driving traffic into the funnel.

If you would like to add the URL as a link to your WordPress menus, widgets or footer make sure to read this article.
