00:03
this is Mark head of customer education
00:06
here at clickfunnels and in this video
00:08
I’ll be showing you how you can set up a
00:10
email whitelist instructions page just
00:14
like you see here the purpose of this is
00:16
that to have a page where you can send
00:19
users after they opt-in and ask them to
00:22
whitelist your sending email so that way
00:25
you can make sure that those emails get
00:27
inboxed which is going to increase your
00:29
open rate as well as your click-through
00:31
rate so I’m gonna show you kind of how
00:34
this page functions I click on Gmail if
00:38
that’s what I use and it would take me
00:40
to the Gmail instructions or if I’m
00:42
using a spam filters such as one of
00:44
these Thunderbird for my email client
00:47
and it will scroll me all the way down
00:49
to this page so if I click top here it
00:54
would take me back up to the top and so
00:56
this is actually a clickfunnels page and
00:59
I’m gonna show you how you can set this
01:02
up just like this so in order to
01:07
generate your own whitelist see
01:09
instructions I would recommend using the
01:11
tool from email delivery Jedi which is a
01:14
website of Chris Lane and he’s one that
01:16
has consulted a lot with us here at
01:18
click funnels on email deliverability
01:20
and this tool makes it very easy to
01:24
create these email whitelist
01:26
instructions so I’m gonna include this
01:29
link below this video so you can go
01:31
there and use this tool what you’re
01:33
gonna do is you’re gonna scroll down
01:35
here you’re gonna enter your email from
01:36
text so this is going to be your from
01:38
name and your from email your brand name
01:48
and then you’re going to scroll down and
01:51
you’re going to click create my
01:54
whitelist so there are some instructions
01:58
that you can do for adding this to
02:00
enough any other page it’s a little bit
02:02
different in order to add it to
02:04
clickfunnels though so as you can see
02:06
here I now have my whitelist
02:08
instructions I’m gonna go to my click
02:10
for old account I’m going to add a new
02:12
funnel and you can add this as an as a
02:14
page and an existing funnel that you
02:16
have you can add it as a new funnel and
02:19
basically what you’re going to be doing
02:20
is linking to this page on your
02:24
thank-you pages and confirmation pages
02:25
after somebody opts in to encourage them
02:28
to whitelist
02:29
your email address so I’m going to build
02:34
this new funnel here now when you build
02:40
this page you can you can make it look
02:43
however you want however the best way to
02:46
do this is to use something with a white
02:49
background so I’m gonna actually go
02:52
ahead and use a blank
02:55
opt-in page template and I’m going to
03:02
open this page in the editor and I’m
03:06
gonna go ahead and actually make this
03:08
top section kind of my branding here so
03:14
let’s go ahead and just make that a
03:15
header you can make this background
03:17
color whatever you want here and then
03:23
I’m gonna delete the text and let’s just
03:26
go ahead and add a logo here this can be
03:29
my branded page and I’m just going to go
03:34
ahead and add a click false logo to this
03:36
page actually got to change this back
03:39
down
03:40
let’s go back to maybe a lighter shade
03:43
of day something like that there we go
03:45
now I’m gonna add a new section below
03:48
here and I’m going to change this to
03:52
full page I’m gonna add a new row and
03:55
that’s gonna be a single column block
03:56
I’m gonna had a new element and I’m
03:59
gonna use the custom j/s HTML element so
04:03
now I have everything I need on this
04:05
page and I’m going to go back to my
04:08
whitelist instructions that I have
04:10
generated I’m going to need to view the
04:14
source of the page so this is going to
04:15
depend on the browser that you’re using
04:17
but if you this is typically found under
04:22
developer tools or something like that
04:24
so I’m using Chrome so I can go to the
04:27
developer and click view source or you
04:30
can use the keyboard shortcut to view
04:32
the source and this is going to pull up
04:34
the page source code now you’re going to
04:37
see a lot of code on this page and right
04:41
here when you first view the source code
04:43
you’re gonna see some CSS I’ve included
04:45
the CSS that you’ll need down below so
04:48
you can copy it from this article and
04:50
paste it into the CSS settings of your
04:54
page when I go into my page and I’m
04:56
going to paste that into the custom CSS
04:58
settings here then I’m going to go back
05:01
to the page source and I’m going to copy
05:06
from line 221 where it says Center and
05:10
I’m going to copy
05:19
all right so you’re gonna finish
05:20
scrolling right about here at line 1268
05:23
you’re gonna copy that you’re gonna go
05:26
into your page and you’re gonna paste
05:30
that in the custom j/s HTML element now
05:34
a couple other things you can do here is
05:36
you’re gonna want to copy this script
05:38
from line 1271 all the way down to 1297
05:42
i’ve also included this script below and
05:45
so you’re going to paste this into the
05:50
tracking code settings so I’m actually
05:52
gonna remove that that was there there’s
05:55
another script that you can add here as
05:56
well that I’ll include this is courtesy
05:58
of winter Jones from funneled plugins
06:00
com and this is gonna make this
06:03
scrolling on this page smooth when
06:05
somebody clicks on one of those links
06:07
and so that is all you need to add to
06:11
this page optimally you can kind of
06:14
scroll back up to the top here and
06:15
you’ll see that these meta properties
06:17
the description has also been generated
06:19
here so you can copy that description
06:23
and you can add the description under
06:26
your meta tags under the description you
06:29
can also copy the page title you can
06:34
also get the there’s an image here if
06:38
you want to add this image it looks like
06:41
this and this can be added to the social
06:46
image here and then you can add your
06:49
name click Save and then preview
06:57
so once somebody comes to this page
07:00
they’ll be able to see their
07:01
whitelisting instructions right here on
07:04
the page when somebody clicks on it it’s
07:06
going to use that smooth scrolling
07:08
script to scroll down and then it’ll
07:10
scroll right back up to the top and
07:12
that’s how you set up your email
07:14
whitelist instructions page
