I think as soon as they have come through your funnel and they are introduced to you, and they understand your value, and you've been positioned as a spot of authority or whatever you want to call it, as soon as they believe that, I really think at that point that the most important thing, not the most important but the best way to convert on the next thing you sell them is through an iPhone video. I think at that point, they have a relationship with you and it's so much more powerful to have them just see you, see your excitement and passion, to see you unscripted where you're talking about this thing, showing it and making it tangible. I think if you do that, it's just going to crush it.

Good morning, everyone out there in Marketing in your Car world. I want to welcome you to today and welcome you to the podcast. I just stumbled upon an interesting realization today. This goes back to this whole evolution of selling stuff for me.

I look at when I first got started online, I did sales letters. Then we moved to me in front of a camera doing Russell talking trying to sell stuff. Then we did PowerPoint videos, then doing some sales letters again. Today and yesterday, we've really built out our Dot Com Secrets Labs Funnel. Instead of doing sleek PowerPoint style videos, I've just done iPhone videos, literally got my iPhone out.

I bought one of these iPhone lav mics on Amazon for $60 and they're awesome. The one thing bad about iPhone videos is usually the sound so we got this little thing and it works. All of the sales videos that were in the sales process, I've replaced them now. I tweaked the offers a little bit too but we replaced them with me just in front of a camera and conversions are crushing it. It's interesting.

I think I came into an ah-ha and I may be wrong. I'm going to test it out a bunch. I think that with cold, cold traffic, I think still having the PowerPoint style videos is probably the best because it gives you the most controlled environment to make sure you deliver the message correctly. It takes away people's ability to judge you and things like that because the one biggest problems with videos of you in front of the camera is people make instant judgments.

If someone comes into my funnel and they see me, they're like, “Wow, he looks like he's 11 years old. There's no way he knows anything about internet marketing,” they're going to prejudge me before they can hear my message. For cold traffic, I still think it's probably more powerful to lead with a PowerPoint style video just because, again, it takes away all the judgment of you as a person.

It gets that person in. Then I think as soon as they have come through your funnel and they are introduced to you, and they understand your value, and you've been positioned as a spot of authority or whatever you want to call it, as soon as they believe that, I really think at that point that the most important thing, not the most important but the best way to convert on the next thing you sell them is through an iPhone video.

I think at that point, they have a relationship with you and it's so much more powerful to have them just see you, see your excitement and passion, to see you unscripted where you're talking about this thing, showing it and making it tangible. I think if you do that, it's just going to crush it. It is for us right now. If you look at Dot Com Secrets Labs Funnel, it started with the PowerPoint video.

I made a quick video of me in my office holding up the book and talking about it and posted that. I was going to use that just to send out to my list but then I was like, “Let's just put that as the video,” and sure enough, it beat the PowerPoint. Then we changed the upsell to where we're giving away a free shirt and they join a $20 a month membership site. We tweaked that.

After we did that, it was just a video of me in the office showing the shirt, talking about it, putting it into a box. I tried to make it a tangible experience. They saw me putting the t-shirt in the box. I'm going to shoot this box, if you just click yes down below, “Ooh, I want that box,” I was trying to make it a very tangible experience for them. Then the third one, I just went to my home office. I'm actually driving back to the office right now from my home office.

I just filmed it and I'm excited to see how it does. We're upselling this webinar. Instead of having a PowerPoint of me talking about the webinar, I had the webinar up open on my screen and I show it. I show pieces of it. I made it tangible, “This is what I talked about and this is why it's important.

This is what you're going to have a chance to see.” I just really tried to open it up so they could see exactly what it was that we're doing and that they're going to get. It's interesting. I think I had a big paradigm shift today. I've definitely been in the process over the last four or five years to script out every video and have it all perfect. While I still think that's important when you're bringing cold traffic in, I think after you've got a relationship, I think the iPhone style videos are going to convert best.

There you go, you heard it here first. You will probably see a lot more from me doing this in the future. I'm at the office. I'm excited to get this video uploaded and tested out in the funnel. I appreciate you guys and hope you have a good time, and make an iPhone video today. Throw it up and sell something and see what happens.

Pretend like you're Billy Mays and you'll be amazed at what happens. In fact, here's a homework assignment for all of you out there in Marketing in your Car land. Go to Google and type in “Billy Mays Rich Schefren,” and it's going to pull up a blog post on StrategicProfits.com where Rich Schefren wrote, right after Billy Mays passed away, Rich Schefren wrote this huge blog post about it.

I tell you what, I would have paid $97 easily for that blog post. It goes over how Billy Mays was the best pitchman our world has ever known, his scripts, how he did it, all that kind of stuff. If you go through that, it will give you the exact outline of how you need to create an iPhone style video.

You'll notice one of the big things he talks about is product demos. That's what I'm trying to do, even with digital products, I'm trying to do these product demos, showing them the computer screen, showing them the demo, giving them some kind of wow moment. If you do that, that's how it all works. I appreciate you guys and gals and we'll talk to you soon.
