I was going to just do my Funnel Hacks webinar that we’ve been doing forever, but I really felt like I wanted to do one that’s more focused on how people can use Clickfunnels for network marketing. Because everyone always asks me, “hey, show me a network marketing funnel.” I’m like, “Dude, technically all funnels are network marketing funnels. The power of network marketing funnels are share funnels. That’s the magic behind it.” I wanted to show them how the whole process works. So yeah, that’s kind of what I’m doing. I’m re-writing the whole webinar.

Hey everyone, this is Russell Brunson welcome to a very, very late night Marketing In Your Car. I know, I know. I swore I’d never do these things again, I swore I was gonna wake up at 5 o’clock in the morning, but It’s becoming crunch time.

A whole bunch of things are happening and I’m running out of hours in the day to get them all done. I’m speaking this weekend at a network marketing event. Actually 2 network marketing events. One of them is for Prove it, I’m going to be getting these guys all excited for the Prove It funnels we’ve been creating for them, so I’m trying to get those done.

There was a big yawn. Anyway, I’ve got some work to do to get those done still. We’ve got one of them that….two of them we’ll be showing off at the event, hopefully one we’ll be launching on what day is it? The next Tuesday. That’s kind of the game plan there. Then I’m speaking at the No Excuses event, and I was going to just do my Funnel Hacks webinar that we’ve been doing forever, but I really felt like I wanted to do one that’s more focused on how people can use Clickfunnels for network marketing.

Because everyone always asks me, “hey, show me a network marketing funnel.” I’m like, “Dude, technically all funnels are network marketing funnels. The power of network marketing funnels are share funnels. That’s the magic behind it.” I wanted to show them how the whole process works. So yeah, that’s kind of what I’m doing. I’m re-writing the whole webinar. And it took forever the first day. I think I might have messaged you guys about that. It took me quite a few hours to just figure out the headline.

That was hard. And then the 3 secrets, I had to re-write a whole bunch….a ton of time, 2 or 3 hours worth and then finally got it. Then I started building the actual framework of the webinar, and trying to make the stories and interesting parts. I realized there were a couple of things that would be really cool if they were sketched out. The dude that does all the sketches in my books, his name is Vlad.

So Vlad had to sketch, I do a really ugly sketch, then I send it to him and then he turns it into an awesome sketch. So I was getting all those done tonight, because he doesn’t work for me full time anymore. So usually I give them to him and hopefully by the next morning he’s got them. I messaged him earlier today like, “Please, can you jump on tonight?” So I just finished sketching those out and handed those off to him, and then I just got a message from him 2 minutes ago saying he was on them right now. By the time I wake up I should have all the sketches done.

Then I just gotta start plugging all the webinar together. I have to create a couple of demos because it’s always scary to do demo’s at a hotel event because half the time the internet goes down. So I gotta create demos tomorrow. Also Robert Kiyosaki’s webinar is coming up. I gotta write all the email sequences, prior to actually writing custom ones for them. Because next week’s the webinar for their list. I think the last webinar they did, I had 10 or 15 thousand people registered.

So we’re trying to make sure we capitalize on it right and do it correctly. So we’re kind for writing a bunch of stuff for them and make it a custom funnel. I think they’re going to start promoting it on Monday, and then the webinar is happening on Thursday through the weekend. So anyway, just a lot of pieces happening between now and then. So that’s why….hence the late night, and not an early morning tomorrow, probably. So anyway, that’s kind of what’s happening over here. I just wanted to jump on and say hi to you guys. Excuse me. I should not be this tired, but I am. What else cool could I share with you guys? How about this?

So a couple of cool things, I’m not even sure before, but they’ve been really impactful. You know we always talk about funnels, that’s obviously a big topic of conversation with me and you guys. So you look at, where’s traffic coming from, what’s up-sell one and up-sell two, down-sell, where’s it go, what’s the next funnel? Look at that progress. But now we’re trying to look deeper and deeper in each step of the funnel and how we can make things better.

I told you how I had a call a while ago with some VC guys, and the numbers they were looking heavily were a cost to acquired customer, average lifetime value customer and churn. So churn is something we’re looking at a lot. So what we’ve been doing is adding in stick sequences into everything.

So if you join Clickfunnels, and everyone should have got it by now, so you should have probably seen this, but we put everyone through a 21 day ignite your funnel on-boarding sequence. So every day for 21 days you get an email talking about the on-boarding process. So that was a big thing that had a huge increase, decrease in churn, increase in stick.

So Funnel University we just rolled out, I think I had a 9 or 10 day email sequence that’s all about stick strategy. How do we get people to stick in Funnel University? For me it’s all about letting them know what they actually get. Because a lot of times people sign up to get the free thing and they don’t know what they are able to consume, so really showing inside the members area and showing them what’s inside the software. Showing people things deeper.

So those are a bunch of cool things that we’re doing. So I would recommend for you guys, look at that. Look at post buy sequences. What are you doing to get those people to like you more? And to consume what you have? Consumption is the key. If we can get people to consume its awesome. And then one last thing that I wanted to share with you guys because I’m really excited.

IF you go to Google and search for cross fit college humor. The first video that pops up, click and play that video. It’s my favorite video ever. I think it’s the only Youtube video I watched like ten times. It’s these guys at Cross fit, they keep messing up saying Cross fit’s a cult, I mean it’s a way of life. And it’s so funny. Anyway, there’s two or three episodes of these guys doing the Cross-fit/Cult thing. I always joke when we were building Clickfunnels, we wanted to build our own community. So I always joke, I think I’ve said a couple of times on the thing, “We’re trying to build our own cult, I mean community.”

And that comes from that episode, it’s always the standing joke. Anyway, we just started a design on this new t-shirt. It’s so awesome. It says, “Funnel hacking, it’s a cult” and then “Cult” is crossed out and it says, “Way of life” so “Funnel hacking, it’s a way of life.” But cult is crossed out. And then on the back it says #itsacult. Anyway, congratulations, you’re part of the funnel hacking cult. No, but it all comes from that video. So now you guys know the inside joke.

When those shirts come out you’ll be like, “I know where Russell came up with that and why he thinks it’s so hilarious.” Hopefully it doesn’t offend anyone; I just think it’s funny. There you go. Alright I’m home. I’m going to bed. Oh crap, except for the garage door opener is not in my car. I’ve got two cars and one garage door opener so I always shift them back and forth, and I’m in the wrong car. That means I get to get out of my car and actually go in and unlock it, actually I’m going to go, because the wrestling room lights are on, so I’m going to walk back here.

Hopefully you guys don’t mind hanging out with me. I don’t know what else to talk to about right now. Everyone else in the whole world is asleep. So the other cool thing that’s happening is next week, Monday and Tuesday Anthony DiClementi, we’re launching a company together called Bio-hacking Secrets, and he’s actually flying out here and we’re going to be filming him. He’s part of one of the first episodes of the Funnel Hacker TV.

So that’s going to be really cool. We’re going to be filming him and me; we’re going to work out here in the wrestling room. I’m going to take him through a wrestling work out and show him it doesn’t matter how good a shape he’s in, but when a wrestler takes the oxygen away from your brain, you can’t survive. Cause there’s always him beating the crap out of me for the next two days, so I got a shot for a little bit, and that’s kind of what we’re going to be doing.

Oh man, its dark back here. And then……yeah anyway. Just a lot of fun things happening over the next two weeks. So he’ll be here Monday, Tuesday filming. And then Wednesday is the Robert Kiyosaki webinar. And after that’s done, I’M going to take a nap, because it’s been an insane 10 days. It’ll be cool. Oh and then another thing that happened today.

Sorry, you guys are getting all the stuff because I have no one else to tell all these things, so you’re getting it all. Marcus Lemonis text me today and said, “Hey, What’s your email address? I need to get you to come out and record a show with me.” So we just emailed his producers and they’re trying to figure out a date in the next 3 weeks for me to fly out and go film or be in one of the episodes of the Profit.

How crazy is that? It’s crazy. I’m excited. Alright guys I’m going to bed. I’m really tired and I’m totally rambling, but hopefully some of those ramblings are fun for you guys, because they’re fun for me. Have a great night and I’ll talk to you guys soon.
