Setting up Email SMTP with ClickFunnels - Quick Start Guide

120 ratings | 5995 views
Setting up your SMTP settings is not the most exciting part of using ClickFunnels, but it is necessary to be able to send emails to your customers. For those that don't understand why they need this, ClickFunnels doesn't actually have any kind of email sending service. They just have software that connects to another service (SMTP) and they do all of the sending. That's why I am providing these easy to follow instructions. Please see below: Step 1: If you have not already, sign up for a free 14 day trial with ClickFunnels: http://bit.ly/clickfunnels-offer-page Step 2: Sign up for a free account with SendGrid: https://sendgrid.com/ Make sure you have a professional email address through your domain registrar. You can also use the below options: Option 1: https://gsuite.google.com/ Instructions for setting up GSuite with clickfunnels: http://docs.clickfunnels.com/email-services/email-host-service-gsuite-integration-with-domains-purchased-within-clickfunnels Option 2: https://www.zoho.com/mail/ Instructions for setting up Zoho with clickfunnels: http://docs.clickfunnels.com/email-services/email-host-service-zoho Step 3: Follow the tutorial in the video and complete the setup.

Hi there, now that I've set up my SMTP Settings, I want to be able to receive notifications by email for when someone fills out my contact form on my clickfunnels account. I want to send an automatic email to the person who filled out the form, as well as an email to me directly with the lead information that was captured from the client. Please help!
Sullivan Baccam (1 month ago)
I've completed the exact steps that you have mention. However, when I test my funnel as a consumer, I'm not receiving any of the emails that are set up in my automation settings for the funnel. Do you have an idea of what the issue wold be?
William Aiken (1 month ago)
Sullivan Baccam Without knowing the exact steps you took and I not being able to see your settings I cannot be sure. My main suggestion would be to contact Clickfunnels support and they will be able to see where the issue is.

Hi so what if we just want to promote products and services I don’t have a physical product to sell and I don’t understand why I need to set this up to display funnels
William Aiken (1 month ago)
Jacob Sawall Hi Jacob, shoot me an email at [email protected] and I can provide a solution for you. In short for everyone else reading, setting up SMTP settings is only necessary when you need your emails to go out and not necessarily has anything to do with products and services. SMPT doesn’t have anything to do with funnels, just the sending of your emails. Shoot me an email and I’ll help you further. Thanks!

Hey so I tried to follow this but clickfunnels is saying I need to select a domain name. But my domain name is registered and live just not through clickfunnels so idk why that’s saying that.

Hi I am a member Click Funnel (NEW) I try to set up by myself but I don't think it's the right way,now that I was watching how you explain that make feel like I am so confusing,and yes I do need help from you,because you are explaining so well please let me know what should I do thank you..
Johny ; Five (1 month ago)
did you make a domain name with clickfunnels? i wasn't able to use my website I made using Godaddy...so I made a new domain with clickfunnels in the DOMAINS option on the left to make a new domain for the Sales funnel(1 page website) I will use and send people from my Facebook Ad to..,instead of sending them to my normal business website. Making a new domain for the sales funnel made it possible to add that domain...it wasn't working when i put my businesses' main website domain. hope that makes sense to u Ann.
William Aiken (4 months ago)
Hi Ann, without being able to look at your funnel and finding out what specifically you're having an issue with it, will be impossible for me to be able to tell you what you need to do. I have a training course I can give you that may really help you: https://freedomsecrets.net/membership-area/141695d4ce3

Hey Billy, I just setup my SMTP with Actionetics and everything seems to have connected but the problem I'm having is that my emails are going to the spam box when I send to gmail. Any tips to resolve this? Thanks in advance for any advice you can provide.
William Aiken (4 months ago)
Ahyash That’s awesome!
Ahyash (4 months ago)
+William Aiken Thanks Billy, I was able to resolve the spam problem by upgrading my plan with a dedicated ip address. Emails are showing up in promotions but definitely better than spam..thanks again for the tips.
William Aiken (4 months ago)
Ahyash Great question Ahyash! Unfortunately that’s the possibility when doing email marketing especially within the affiliate marketing niche and there’s no way I can answer that question in this reply as it be too long, lol. I would do a ton a research on this topic. Here are some suggestions to help you get started: 1) Only use a professional looking email address to send your emails and don’t include words in your address that will automatically send you to spam like the word “affiliate” or “get rich.” 2) Watch the keywords in your subject line and body that your not using words that automatically populate your email into the spam folder. 3) Don’t include more than a few links in the email. Try sending value based emails with no links in between a email with an offer. 4) Try to stay away from keywords like “free” “special offer” “affiliate” “get rich” and etc that will get your email sent to spam. Research hot keywords that get you to the spam folder 5) Make sure your info and unsubscribe link is on the bottom of all your emails so your in compliance of the latest updates in GDPR regulations. I hope this has helped! Please make sure you subscribe to my channel and check out all the videos I have available as there are some key videos I know will help you! ~ William

William Aiken (6 months ago)
