Spring 2023 Product Update: New Funnel Analytics, Elements, Integrations, and More
Last year at ConvertFlow, we joined the ecommerce movement to “arm the rebels” and embarked on our new mission to empower brands to own their funnel.
By empowering ecommerce brands with the no-code tools they need to build personalized shopping experiences, we’re empowering them to build their owned audience of shoppers, and to drive growth more predictably.
After years of brands getting burned by becoming too dependent on big tech companies and unreliable ad platforms, our philosophy has become:
Own your funnel to own your growth. Own your growth to own your future.
This has shaped our product direction immensely. We’ve overhauled just about everything.
Here’s all that’s new since last year’s big shift.

<funnel>Swipe our ecommerce funnel template for your brand<funnel>
ConvertFlow’s no-code funnel builder is now laser-focused on helping brands launch their own personalized ecommerce funnel on their website.
In fact, we’ve done all the hard work for you. Our funnel template is ready for you to launch, just customize your campaigns for your brand and turn it on.
First, start with our new funnel manifesto by Angela Rollins, an ecommerce veteran now managing content marketing at ConvertFlow.
In this guide, you’ll learn how to:
- Grow your bottom-line with your existing traffic
- Build your own funnel with customizable templates
- Personalize your funnel for maximum impact
Then, head over to our funnel playbooks to learn how to launch the high-impact campaign templates that make up the modern ecommerce funnel.
<pricing>New pricing that supports fast-growing brands<pricing>
This year we overhauled our pricing with new plans based on monthly campaign views, rather than all tracked monthly visitors. That means you only pay based on who sees your ConvertFlow campaigns, not your overall website visitors.
We’ve also baked more usage and features into our self-service plans, with each plan tailored for different stages of a brand's life:
You’ll also notice the addition of the new white-glove plans:
For brands scaling up to high-traffic, multiple websites, and multiple team members.
Your team gets invited to a private Slack channel with a dedicated Funnel Success Manager, who guides you each step of the way to launch and optimize your funnel.
For Shopify Plus brands that need their ConvertFlow funnel managed for them.
With this scalable managed service, our in-house marketers optimize your funnel for each shopper segment on your behalf, based on lessons learned from 100,000+ campaigns that have been created in ConvertFlow.
We’ll manage ongoing campaign creation, landing page development, experimentation, and personalization to help you grow your brand.
<analytics>Introducing new funnel analytics 📈<analytics>
ConvertFlow's funnel analytics has become more robust:
We’ve enabled new metrics, so you can now easily report on how many subscribes and adds-to-cart were driven. 🛒
New analysis types
When reporting on a metric, you can now switch between funnel analysis, counts overtime, and conversion rates over time.
When reporting on a campaign, scroll down to see the funnel breakdown: a detailed breakdown of how visitors are progressing through your campaign:
Just choose which variant to report on and the timeframe you'd like to view.
You'll find insights into what survey and form field options are most selected and which products are added to the cart the most. And you can determine where people are dropping off the most to inform your next experiment.
Site-wide custom field insights
Your website's insights page now has a new report that shows how many people engaged with all of your custom fields, and how many people selected each of their respective options:
<builder>Big updates to the builder shipped 🚀<builder>
We dropped a bunch of new elements and builder updates so far this year so you can do more with your campaigns.
New tabs element
Now you can display toggled content with the new tabs element:
Just add tabs, click them to toggle between them, and drag content into each tab.
New collapse element
Similar to the tabs element, you can display toggled content with the collapse element:
Add as many collapses as you’d like, and nest content within each collapse.
New list elements
List elements help you create structured content lists like bullet points, numbered steps, A/B/C lists, pricing feature lists, etc.:
New icons element
Adding quick icons is now super easy with the icons element:
Just add the icons element to the builder. Then, search for the perfect icon in the settings to the right.
Surveys got a big update
Survey elements have been overhauled to support lots of new styles and options.
Creating engaging quizzes is faster now with new options to add selectable emojis, icons (full library available), and letters (A/B/C...) to your surveys:
And there are lots of new design controls to configure your surveys’ style, with more granular sizing options.
Forms got a boost too
New field settings have been added to the form element. Now you can control the minimum and maximum number of characters for text and paragraph fields.
The phone field has been upgraded, too.
You can now add a label just for the country code label or opt to hide the country code field entirely.
And phone fields can also now stop invalid SMS opt-ins with real-time phone verification:
Quickly set responsive maximum widths
Ever find yourself having to add lots of margin and padding to your content to give it a more custom maximum width?
Now with ConvertFlow's improved maximum width controls, you can use sliders to set maximum widths for sections, elements, and more:
Drag to create new elements
To add an element in the builder, you can now click the "add element" button in the toolbar. Then, either click an element type to see templates or drag it over to the builder canvas to create it. Easy!
Save your own builder templates
Create your own library of elements, sections, and funnel step templates that you can re-use as starting points for your next campaign by saving builder templates:
Need royalty-free stock photos for your ConvertFlow campaigns? Now you can quickly find stock photos—that are fully free to use—from within ConvertFlow's builder:
Just click the "Unsplash" tab when uploading an image. Then, search a keyword and a bunch of free stock photos will appear:
Choose the image, crop it if needed, and you're done!
<shopify>ConvertFlow’s Shopify app, upgraded 💪<shopify>
ConvertFlow's Shopify integration just got a ton of upgrades.
Product and collection merge tags
Now you can create campaigns with dynamic text merge tags from your Shopify products and collections.
For example, your welcome offer popups can dynamically display the currently viewed product's title and price within your ConvertFlow text elements:
Product elements can now display the currently viewed product
This lets you dynamically swap out the product displayed in your campaign with the currently viewed product, which is great for creating a site-wide browse abandonment popup that dynamically changes for all products:
New Shopify cart conditions
Ever needed to target specific campaigns to shoppers who have a certain type of product in their cart?
With the new Shopify cart conditions, you can now target campaigns based on the type and titles of products in the cart:
Visualize discounts using each products' sale price
Now you can have your ConvertFlow product elements visualize the discount savings using each product's unique sale price:
This way you can have each Shopify product show its own unique discount through ConvertFlow, instead of having ConvertFlow show a single amount or percentage discount across all the products:
More Shopify app updates
- ConvertFlow can recommend complementary Shopify products based on your configuration of the official Shopify Search & Discovery app
- When your product element uses Shopify collections as the product source, you can now select multiple collections to display products from
- Unavailable products in collections will now automatically not show, unless you toggle the product element to show unavailable products
- When you configure your product element to display a list of manually selected products, you can now also manually choose which product variants display
<integrations>New integrations added 🤝<integrations>
With the new two-way integration with Omnisend, you can:
- Sync contact fields and subscribe contacts in Omnisend
- Sync quiz answers and custom fields to Omnisend custom fields
- Apply tags in Omnisend using automation rules

- Campaigns now have insights into which split-test variant won and displayed
- Popup trigger settings are now visualized in real-time
