Learning how to properly test your funnel is important to ensure your funnel is working as intended. In this article, we will be going over the recommended steps to test your funnel. For this demonstration, we will be using an Optin Funnel, however, the practices outlined here apply for all funnel types.
Prior to getting started, you will need to have the following:
Step 1: Test Your Funnel
1. Go to your funnels and select the Optin funnel you wish to test.
2. Load the Optin Page in an incognito window by right-clicking on the preview icon next to the step’s URL.
Important Note: Testing in an Incognito window will prevent caching issues and the ClickFunnels system will recognize you as a completely new Visitor.
3. Submit a test using a unique email address.
It’s recommended to simulate that a new lead is coming into the funnel with every test. In order to simulate this, ClickFunnels needs a unique email address to be submitted during the test. In order to make an email address unique, you can add +1, +2, +3 before the @, and so on for every test.
For example: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, etc.
4. Check the Contacts tab of your funnel and confirm if the new test contact was added.
You can also use other browsers to test your funnel. Keep in mind that Google Chrome is the recommended browser when using ClickFunnels, however, if you are testing your funnel in other browsers you should also follow the steps above.
If the test contact wasn’t saved, please review this troubleshooting document.
