No one likes to pursue leads. They are time-consuming and expensive. But what if there was an easy way to increase your sales?

What if you could automate the process and enjoy passive sales?

Passive sales are the process by which you market your products to potential customers without the need for your constant involvement.

Sales funnels, specifically evergreen sales funnels, are simple automated processes that are used to generate leads over time.

⬇️ What Are Sales Funnels

Sales funnels are a crucial part of running an online business. New to the concept? No problem – let us catch you up.

A sales funnel guides the process in which an online browser turns into a buying customer.

It leads the potential customer into making a buying purchase. Pretty relevant – right? 

What does this look like? 

Traditional Sales Funnels usually follow the same formula:

→ They’ll usually start with bringing awareness to the product, for example, a Facebook ad.

→ The Ad will then bring you over to a company landing page, where they’re going to bring interest to the product, showing you why the product is desirable.

Why did others purchase?

Why should you?

→ The customer will then likely experience a CTA, such as an email signup or prompt to buy a product.

♻️ What makes the Evergreen Webinar Funnel Different?

First…What even is an Evergreen Webinar Funnel? Like the name – they are designed to be long-lasting. They can be otherwise referred to as automated webinars

Unlike live webinars, evergreen webinars are pre-recorded and can be watched on-demand. 

The popular evergreen webinar is a webinar that is planned, promoted, and marketed in advance, so your audience knows about it even before it’s even released and it can be watched anytime anywhere.

Let’s dive into why the Evergreen Webinar Funnel is the right choice for you. 

🖐 The 5 Benefits of an Evergreen Webinar Funnel You Need to Consider 

1. It’s Cost Efficient

When creating an evergreen webinar, the event only needs to happen once in real-time. Unlike continuous live webinars, you are using up a one-time slot for marketing and promotion. 

Producing webinars can be costly for a business. Because there’s no need to continuously create new campaigns for promotions, the cost and promotional efforts are less than one-time webinars.

All of the resources for producing the webinar only happen once as well. Once it’s ready to release, you will make money as you sleep!

2. It Can Boost Your Site SEO (Search Engine Optimization.)

By including relevant keywords that will attract clients, you can use evergreen webinars to boost your site traffic. 

Boosting your SEO = higher traffic. Higher traffic means more customers! 

These forever-webinars will bring in constant traffic to your website. This leads us to higher conversion rates! (and more $$$!)

3. Higher Conversion Rates.

Having an evergreen webinar funnel ensures that your website has a constant flow of traffic, therefore an increase in conversion rates. 

When a potential customer comes to your website, they know that there will be new content coming out in the future, so they’re more likely to convert. 

In fact, the entire Evergreen Webinar marketing funnel is entirely conversion-based.

4. Reach a Larger Audience.

Live webinars are a one-time deal and often can only accommodate a set number of attendees. This means you are losing revenue because not everyone who wants to attend will be able to. 

An automated, evergreen webinar solves this problem. Reasons such as unavailability, hearing about the webinar “too late”, and being in a different time zone, become non-existent. 

With the Automated Webinar, your audience grows to anyone with access to the internet.

The world becomes your oyster! 🦪

Market to different niche groups over different periods of time. Launch different campaigns for the same, pre-recorded event. Bigger audience, more customers, more revenue, bigger pockets!

5. Build Trust With Your Audience.

Anyone who attends your webinar is experiencing viable, real content. Show your audience that you are an expert in your field.

Once they spend however many minutes or hours listening to you, they will have a newfound trust in you and your business. 

Rather than just experiencing an advertisement or a product, they are experiencing you, your business, and what you have to offer. 

👍👎 The Pros and the Cons of an Evergreen Webinar Funnels

No matter how good the product – everything will have its pros and cons.

It goes without saying that weighing the benefits against the detractors is an effective way to measure whether an approach is right for you.

When it comes to the Evergreen Webinar Funnel, look no further. Below we have listed the pros and cons. 

PRO: Reuse and Recycle!

One of the best things about the Evergreen Webinar Funnel is that it can be used time and time again.

Where live webinars have to be planned and executed (physically) over and over. 

No matter how much you LOVE hosting webinars, this can lead to fatigue. 

Rinse and repeat gif
In the case of Evergreen Webinars, the planning and filming happen just once. After that, your company can allocate time and money towards growing your business rather than hosting live webinars.

PRO: Your Webinar Can Be Viewed at Any Time. 

Automated webinars are a one-and-done deal. Once they’ve been uploaded, they can be viewed at any desired time, making them more flexible than live webinars. 

Live webinars will inevitably exclude many people unavailable for a given time, no matter how badly they want to attend your event. 

Another big problem; time zones. If working from home taught us anything, it’s that adjusting to multiple time zones can be a pain in the behind. 

Automated webinars can be watched from anywhere at any time; meaning you are gaining customers you would have missed out on initially with the live webinar.

PRO: Another Source of Revenue.

Just like companies charge viewers to watch live webinars, you can do the same with your automated webinars as well! Use positive testimonials to convince buyers into purchasing your webinar. Boom, more income!

Because the webinar is automated, more viewers will pay for it knowing they can watch it anywhere, anytime!

CON: No Urgency. 

Because the webinar is automated, anyone can watch it at any time. This takes away the sense of exclusivity and urgency that customers feel when presented with an offer for a live offer. 

Customers will be more likely to rush into signing up for a webinar with limited attendance and limited availability, rather than one they know is open to anyone at any time. 

CON: Less Interaction. 

One of the biggest cons about creating automated webinars over live webinars is that the sense of personalization and interaction can get a little lost. 

Live webinars open up the opportunity for companies to build personal connections with viewers. Viewers also have the opportunity to ask questions, making the entire event more engaging and fun. 

Automated webinars lack this aspect. They tend to feel more like youtube videos and less conversational unless you have a means of interaction set up for your viewers eg. a Facebook group or email where questions can be answered.
