Funnel builders have always been something that marketers and online sales teams have required to get the most out of their business. ClickFunnels is well known and established, whereas BuilderAll is forever changing and update.
Today I wanted to do a ClickFunnels vs Builderall to see if either of these platforms come out on top or if they meet different requirements for different people and that we simply have to live with that fact.
Clickfunnels is a seasoned service that was developed by Russell Brunson and his team. It has been active in the e-commerce world for about four years now and has proven effective for online marketers looking to sell their products effectively.
A quick look at Clickfunnels website reveals a well put together website, complete with a quiz to help interested people find the best funnel for their application. Beyond this helpful quiz, you find a list of some features to look forward to if you use their service:
- Simple drag & drop editor
- Quickly build funnels that convert
- 1 click upsells with smart shopping cart
- Automated Facebook and Email marketing
- Simple dashboard to manage everything
Users are offered a variety of pre-constructed sales funnels, and all they have to do is pick the one that best suits their business needs. Clickfunnels will save you all the time and effort that it takes to start up your sales funnels from scratch and gets your setup done fast.
Once your funnel has been selected, you then need a template. With Clickfunnels, you can choose from a range of templates, all of which are tested and shown to work. This works as a means of accelerating your a/b testing phase as you do not need to sort out templates that are under-performing.
The interface is very user friendly, and it is a cinch to integrate clocks, videos, and many more fun addons to your template and then do some A/B testing to see what works and what won’t. You do not have to be slowed down by the time it takes to learn the application.
Here is a list of all the tools that Clickfunnels can offer your business:
- Webinar funnels
- Hangout funnels
- Priority request templates
- Downsale pages
- Upsell pages
- Share Your Funnels
- Priority support
- Order pages
- Custom domains
- Auto webinar funnels
- Sales funnels
- Click Optin
- Email Integrations
- A/B Split testing
- All advanced funnels

Now that we have looked at what each platform has to offer, it's time to sum them up and give a bit of a personal opinion on them. I would encourage anyone looking at these two platforms to give the full reviews a read, as this comparison article gives a very high level, and doesn't dive into the specifics of each platform in huge amounts of detail, else this article would be 5,000+ words long.
Clickfunnels is best suited for small to large business and those entrepreneurs who work alone. It is also great if you are a freelancer, blogger, or anybody who sells online. It makes e-commerce easier for those who have pre-built sales funnels and landing pages/one-page websites for any need. There are a huge number of integrations and a variety of use cases for anyone who seeks to increase their sales or their email list.
What We Liked:
- Solutions for sales funnels were complete - it is a one stop shop
- Best value for price, great return on investment
- Comes with six prebuilt sales funnels
- Enjoy a 14 Day Free Trial - You can grab that here
- It was easier to sell products and services as the templates where cleaner
What We Didn’t Like:
- Support was rather delayed in responding to us
- Tracking not supported across non Clickfunnel sites
- Interface can be a pain to learn at first
- Interface was confusing at first
- For some funnels the mobile view & desktop can be different, for no apparent reason
- Doesn't work well on mobile
- People find the $97 per month cost as quite daunting even if you do get a lot for your money
- Training is outdated, especially for their affiliate marketing side of the business, so if you are looking to get into that then it's better to use the training here.
We first had a not so good impression of this particular platform, until we learned it was basically a bunch of marketing tools that was combined into one platform.
The platform focuses heavily on the builders, which lets you create landing pages and sales funnels, and also gives you access to MailBoss, its email service.
Another great thing about this particular platform is the webinars and the email marketing that get built right into your website. This one really does cater to beginners.
What We Liked:
- $1 Trial, does allow you to try the platform out You can grab there here
- A complete solution to web marketing
- Webinars come built right into the platform
- They are very affordable for new entrepreneurs or savvy business owners
- Email marketing is built right in to platform (more on that in a second)
- A tiered affiliate structure - You earn a small % of your affiliates affiliates. So you can expand your reach and if the person directly below you leaves, you essentially take on their affiliates.
What We Didn’t Like:
- They provide you with an email app, but it's truly awful.
- Apps can run slowly
- Support is archaic, even with access to chats
- We noticed that apps and editors can be buggy
- Sales funnels not as successful
- It's still new and has a lot of learn
- Support is slow, and their internal systems seem to be ancient and difficult to deal with
- There are a lot of tools, some are simply useless or not as good as their counter parts
Clickfunnels Vs. Builderall Verdict
I find it difficult to sum up vs articles some times, as a lot changes over time, companies change pricing, people have different ideas on what they see as 'acceptable' or 'worth the price' and it does come down to personal preference.
Over the last few years, I have found people who are Avid ClickFunnels fans, and others who wouldn't touch BuilderAll with a barge pole, and the other way around.
ClickFunnels feels like the more mature product, though I still find bugs and issues to this day, such as GetResponse not working that well, or the mobile view being buggy, I still get the sense ClickFunnels wont fully fall over on me, or they have at least got the core issues dealt with.
Clickfunnels gives you two pricing options, the “Enterprise” and the “Startup.” Both of these options allow you the chance to take a two-week trial so you can decide if you like it.
If you want the whole enchilada, just go with the Enterprise-which, after your trial period, will run you $297 per month. This gives you everything inside the platform, including unlimited numbers of visitors, unlimited leads, and unlimited pages.
You also get unlimited funnels. You can also get access to affiliate software, making it easy to make your affiliate programs, and also a smart autoresponder software that integrates perfectly, letting you leave behind your email software. If you can afford it, it can make all the difference.
If you want to be sensible, and save yourself ALOT of money then you can sign up to the Funnel Hackers funnel, and of time of writing they where offering 6 months or 12 months of their highest package + other bonuses for cheaper than it would be on it's own.
The basic plan does not include either of these particular features, but you can still integrate the account with any of your favoured email and tracker platforms. The basic plan also puts a limit on your visitors, your funnels and landing pages. You will only get 20 funnels, 100 pages, and 20,000 visitors per month with this particular plan-and three custom domains. This is great for those in smaller settings or small business and upgrading to Enterprise is a cinch.
I also found that the support, though not perfect, still beat BuilderAll. You could at least get sensible answers, and they seemed to be working with better tech to get issues sorted.
You also had a large number of sharefunnels and tools or apps to play with, mainly due to ClickFunnels existing longer, they have more people creating and sharing their funnels across the internet.
The price tag for BuilderAll, and the fact you do get access to a lot of tools is always going to be a crowd pleaser, even if the person looking at the offer will never use 99% of the tools offered.
You can get started with BuilderAll at a fraction of the cost of ClickFunnels, even BuilderAlls funnel club offer, is barely a few $'s more than ClickFunnels cheapest option.
With BA you do of course get those apps, meaning you don't need to have 4 or 5 different platforms, you don't have to use Zapier, or IFFT to get tools to play together nicely and you can use a single platform to try and get your business to work.
But, I find that many of those apps are simply not that good, especially when you compare it to say something like Buffer, which is free, doesn't need to connect with any other platform and works perfectly well. I wouldn't replace that with BuilderAlls version, because I see zero requirement to do so.
If you are trying to get a sense of BuilderAll, what it offers and if it will fit your overall journey, I would encourage you to grab their $1 offer. It allows you to fully try out the differeneryt parts of the platform to see if it works for you.
Closing It Up
If you’re serious about marketing, and you want high conversion and a product that you know will work but don’t care about money, Clickfunnels is the way to go. It is indeed better for funnels, webinar delivery, landing pages, and sales pages-and more. This will make a great promoter of online sales. Be sure to give the review a read to get the full flavour.
Builderall is great if you are new to the game. If you are a blogger, on a budget, or don’t care about high conversion rates on sales funnels, go for this platform. It offers you a generalised list of services and features that will do the basics. Be sure to give the review a read to get the full flavour.
Both are great for their own reasons. Do you have any other funnel builders or platforms that you have wanted to look at?
