I scripted it out to go over the 3 core belief patterns, and I followed it to a T. We did that. What's crazy is I used the one ... I'm using terminology from the Perfect Webinar script, so if you don't have it yet, go to and go get it. It's 5 bucks. I used the one thing as the title in my Periscope and my Facebook Mention, which worked really good. We got a lot of people on. I did the whole pitch. I think we had 3,000 people live between Periscope and Facebook Mentions who saw me do the 25 minute pitch, which was crazy.

Hey, everyone. This is Russell Brunson, and welcome to a rainy Marketing in Your Car. Hey, everyone, I hope you're doing awesome. I'm actually pretty happy right now that my voice is mostly here. I teach a Sunday school class, and yesterday I couldn't even ... I kept trying to talk and my voice is like peeking out.

It sounded like I was a 15-year-old teenage boy with my voice cracking all the time, so today it's doing alright. I've been up for a few hours. I already had lifting and wrestling practice, which was awesome and amazing. Now, I'm heading to the office for a little bit. But this week, it’s our Christmas week, so I can't work too hard because I've got to play with my kids too, but I do have some big things that we've got to get out of the way and get done.

I wanted to share with you guys kind of a unique win that happened this weekend that was ... It was kind of unexpected. I hope that everyone starts funnel hacking this and copying this because it was really, really cool. As you guys know, and as I've been preaching for the last few months now, my thoughts on Periscope, and Facebook mentions, and all those kinds of platforms, right? We've been trying to slowly and organically grow our audience, and make it bigger and better each time.

It's been pretty cool. Last week, Mike Filsaime was launching EverWebinar, which is an automated webinar platform. It's kind of this weird thing. We didn't want to promote it because we have our own automated webinar platform, but he's also our number one affiliate, and his software is really, really good. It was kind of this thing finally we decided last minute, "Yeah, we're going to help promote this, but we've got to do it in a way that's different and cool and help people understand."

Yes, ClickFunnels has automated webinar software, but this is kind of like if you want to take that concept deep. This software does a lot more then what we offer, to be honest. That's kind of what the promotion was. We started the promotion, and made a really good bonus offer, and it didn't sell very well. I think we sold like 30 the first day, and it was like 10 the second day, and then like 1 or 2 after that. I was like "Huh. Well, that sucks." We tried to help him out, and I was just like, "Ah, it's not really working."

I think the biggest problem they had was they're selling automated webinar software, but they didn't do a webinar to sell it, which I thought was kind of strange. I thought, "I'm just going to do my own webinar," because I think that's a better way to do it. Last Saturday, so a little over a week ago, I started scripting out a webinar. I had it on paper, but I actually didn't get to the slides.

Last week ended up being crazy, all these things I was trying to get done, so I never had time to do the webinar. It comes to Thursday, and Mike's like, "Hey, you're in the lead, but these other dudes are catching up to you. And you should promote it again." I was like "Oh crap. I was going to do a webinar, but I didn't." I was just like, "I don't think anyone else is going to buy it based on how I was doing it." Then I had this epiphany.

It was like angels from heaven were singing and they said, "Why don't you do the Perfect Webinar live on Periscope and Facebook Mentions? That way you don't have to create PowerPoint slides." I was like "Sweet!" Because I know the pitch, I know what I wanted to put in there. I was like, "I don't think people are going to spend 90 minutes on Periscope, but maybe I can do a condensed version." So I got out my white board, I wrote out the one thing, wrote out the 3 secrets.

I have these cool white boards that slide over, so I slide it over, and the second white board I built out the stack. I had the stack, and then I got these white pieces of paper to kind of cover up the stack, and I covered it up. That was all my prep. I opened up Periscope, opened up Facebook Mentions, and I started talking, and I did a 25 minute version live of the Perfect Webinar. It was awesome. I did it in front of the white board, and I slide it over, and I showed the stack.

I pulled the papers off each one and did the whole thing exactly the way I show everyone. I scripted it out to go over the 3 core belief patterns, and I followed it to a T. We did that. What's crazy is I used the one ... I'm using terminology from the Perfect Webinar script, so if you don't have it yet, go to and go get it. It's 5 bucks. I used the one thing as the title in my Periscope and my Facebook Mention, which worked really good. We got a lot of people on. I did the whole pitch.

I think we had 3,000 people live between Periscope and Facebook Mentions who saw me do the 25 minute pitch, which was crazy. How often do you get 3,000 people live on a webinar? Let alone with the click of a button, with no advanced notice. I did that, and then as soon as it was done, John, on my team started promoting the Facebook version because it was on Facebook. He started blowing it up. Within 3 days, I think, we had 30,000 people had seen that video, which was crazy.

The crazier thing is that from that we sold 160 copies the next day of Ever Webinar and the day after that we sold 78 more copies. It was crazy. We became the number one selling affiliate. My affiliate commissions jumped to well over $100,000, and I won a $50,000 prize. That's not counting re-bills and stuff like that. When all said and done we made $200,000 off of 1 Periscope, Facebook Mentions where I just used the perfect webinar. It was amazing.

I hope you guys listen to that, and I hope you take it to heart because it gives you the ability just to test, really quick, a webinar offer and see if it's going to work. I wish I would have done that before I created some other webinars that didn't work. It would have saved me a lot of time. My guess is you will see me over the next upcoming months, once or twice a month probably, doing a micro Perfect Webinar pitch on Periscope and Facebook Mentions.

Because if you can make that much money, that quick, why not just do it, and why not do it every once in a while? That's kind of what happened. It was kind of fun. If you haven't seen it yet, if you go to, that's where we store them all. If you go to, they'll be listed there too. I think the title is something like "How to Make an Extra Seven Figures Next Year Using this Webinar Model," or "How to Make at Least Seven Figures Next Year Using this Proven Webinar Model," or something like that. If you search for that, you can see the video, and just see me do the pitch, and all that kind of stuff.

This is the best part. For those of you guys who know anything about bio-hacking, or doing weird stuff to try to increase your awesomeness. One of the coolest bio-hacking things you can do is a cryo therapy unit. Tony Robins has one in his house, Dave Asprey has one in his house, and then usually most people have to go and travel to go find one. There's one dude in Boise that's got one in his clinic. I've always wanted one, and I've been begging my wife, and she keeps telling me, "No because it's ridiculous. It's way more money then you should spend on something stupid like that." I don't really have an ideal spot in our house.

Well, I kind of do, but anyway ... The affiliate prize was $50,000 towards the BMW of your choice. I don't really want a BMW, but I do want a cryo unit, which happens to be exactly $50,000. I emailed Filsaime and I'm like, "Hey, man. If I win can you buy me a cryo chamber, or whatever you call them, instead of a BMW?" He said, "Yes." I actually won a cryo unit from doing the Perfect Webinar on a thing, which is freaking amazing. Now, I've just got to convince my wife that I need to remodel one of our bathrooms and turn it into a cryo chamber, so that's the next challenge. If I can close that deal I will have one in my house.

Anyway, I'm kind of excited as you can tell. My voice, as you can hear, is starting to fall away. If you guys made it to the end of this I apologize my voice is going, but I hope that gives you an idea. Don't forget, you guys, there's a lot of ways you can pitch. This whole game is about building audiences and then figuring out how to convert those people. I feel like we stumbled upon something really cool with growing our audiences like we've been doing, and then using this as a mechanism to convert those people into sales. Pretty exciting.

Hope you guys get some value from this, and I hope you guys try it. If try it let me know. Post the video on Facebook afterwards and tag me, and I'll check it out. I want to see it. We have to think of a cool name. Should we call it the Perfect Periscope, or the Perfect Blab, or the Perfect ... I don't know. We'll figure out a cool name for it for anyone else who does it.

Anyway, there you go you guys. I hope you guys can use that. If you're ever in Boise and you want to come my cryo chamber, if I have it, you're welcome to come. I'm just joking. My wife probably wouldn't want you to come to my house. Not because it's you, just because it's those weird people on the internet. You know what I mean. Anyway, I'm going to stop before I get in any trouble. I appreciate you guys. Have an amazing day and we'll talk to you guys all again soon. Bye!
