WordPress and Clickfunnel are some of the most popular platforms for building websites and funnels.

Combining the two will help your business become a powerhouse by acquiring more customers and generating more sales.

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

Why Integrating Clickfunnels and WordPress

Although WordPress is the best CMS platform for building websites, there isn’t a simple way to create beautiful and converting funnels. Therefore, many business owners are using Clickfunnels to achieve this task.

Clickfunnels is an easy drag & drop builder editor very similar to Elementor, making the whole process very easy.

Because Clickfunnels has an extensive library of professional and proven premade templates, it will save valuable time for building it with WordPress.

Clickfunnels is an entirely different service. Therefore, funnels use other domain names and URLs than the WordPress website.

By default, all funnels use 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:

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

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

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

Now that we got this out of the way let’s move on and learn how to integrate the two.

Integrate Clickfunnels with WordPress

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

Step #1: Install the plugin

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

Step #3: Create the funnel’s URL

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

Create a new page

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

In the Choose Funnel drop-down menu, select your desired funnel if you have more than one, and the funnel’s step where you would like your visitors to land.

I recommend you to leave the chosen step option as-is so that they will land on the first step of the funnel.

Now, inside the Custom Slug field, enter the desired URL path you want to use for your funnel.

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

Once you entered the slug, the URL link changed under the text box, and it’s now showing you the full URL of the funnel. That’s great.

Create a custom funnel path

Copy the full funnel link and save the page.

Step #4: Test the funnel

After saving the page, paste the funnel’s URL in your browser and verify it’s displaying the correct funnel and step.

Once verified that everything is working as expected, share the new URL and start driving traffic into the funnel.
