I think we’re going to start a trend – maybe. I’m not sure, but we’re doing a reverse launch, so most people do product launches where they show you training video number one, then video number two, then video number three, and then video number four they sell you, and they open the cart and you can go in and you can sign up. This one is going to be backwards. What we’re doing is inside Click Funnels, we’ve got basically five or six different funnel types. Today we’re going to launch, and we’re going to launch one funnel type, which is our opt-in funnels, which that, by itself, makes us a better alternative than any of our competitors, so it does it better, easier, just right out of the gate.

Hey, everyone. This is Russell Brunson, and I want to welcome you to a very special launch-day “Marketing in Your Car.” Hey, everyone. It’s been a little while since I talked to you guys, probably because we have been killing ourselves getting Click Funnels launched out.

I’m driving home at about four in the morning, and I’m driving back a few hours later. I’m usually a little bit too tired to talk [laughs], but the good news is that today’s the day. We’re going to go live, and it’s exciting, and it’s scary. It’s so many things, but above all I’m excited to share this tool, this gift, whatever you want to call it, with the world, and so we have spent insane amounts of time, effort, money, energy [laughs] to bring this to everyone, and today, we have the fruition of that, which is exciting.

What I want to talk about today, just while I’m thinking about it, every one of us, depending on if you’ve got a business already, and you’re rolling out new ideas, new projects, new things, or those who are just getting started, there comes a time when you have to launch, and a lot of times, you probably think that all of us who are doing launches, that we’ve got everything, all of our ducks in a row, and it’s always perfect, and it’s sunshine and roses, but the reality is, it is crazy every single time. We’re juggling a million different things, trying to get everything done, but it’s fun to see it all come together.

Now one thing that we learned from doing this or any launch is that first when you start a project, you get all of these things you want to do and then as you get closer and closer to the deadline, you’ve got to start chopping things and pulling things off, and it gets smaller and smaller until you get to where you’ve got something that you can actually do and put out there in the world, and even right now, it’s kind of fun with this launch.

We kept on changing it and figuring out what we had to have to go live, and we picked a date, and we’ve stuck to it, and now it’s go time. One thing that’s interesting that we’re doing on this launch – I think we’re going to start a trend – maybe. I’m not sure, but we’re doing a reverse launch, so most people do product launches where they show you training video number one, then video number two, then video number three, and then video number four they sell you, and they open the cart and you can go in and you can sign up.

This one is going to be backwards. What we’re doing is inside Click Funnels, we’ve got basically five or six different funnel types. Today we’re going to launch, and we’re going to launch one funnel type, which is our opt-in funnels, which that, by itself, makes us a better alternative than any of our competitors, so it does it better, easier, just right out of the gate.

That’s the first thing we’re launching today, and that will give us a chance where the promotional video’s all about that feature and about thing, and we’re talking about that one little thing, and then two days later, we’re going to unlock the next feature, which is our automated webinar funnels and our webinar funnels, and so that will come out.

Then, “Boom,” we’ll launch a new sales video with that. We’ll have training that goes with everything and we’ll indoctrinate and get people using that, and then three days later, we open our sales funnels, and after they open it, we’ll go in there and help people get those integrated and get their shopping carts in there, et cetera, et cetera, and then after that we have launch funnels and the membership sites, but we’re doing an internal rolling launch where we’re rolling out new features every three or four days, for a couple of reasons.

One is that it gives our affiliates a reason to promote every two or three days, which is very good for sales. That’s the first thing. The second thing is it gives us a chance on the support side to make sure we’ve mastered one funnel type, and make sure that it’s perfect and that we have templates and Q&As and all of those types of things. Just to make sure we’ve got that one funnel perfect. And then on the third is that it gives the customers the ability to really get in there and immerse and learn one thing at a time, and so anyway, we’re excited.

That’s the strategy, and it’s never been done before, so it will be fun to see what happens on a reverse launch, and see if it blows up in our faces, or if it does awesomely, but either way we’re excited, and just really excited to share Click Funnels with the world. It’s funny. Somebody posted on Facebook the other day about how they thought Click Funnels was the biggest marketing innovation since e-mail auto-responders, which I personally do believe, but I remember that I posted in there – and I thought about it a little bit before I posted, and I posted, and I said, “Look, guys, even if we never sold a single copy, this tool will make me and make my company millions of dollars.

I’m just so grateful to be the one that has the chance to share it with you guys,” and that’s really how I feel, and so today, if you’re listening to this podcast, go get your Click Funnels account. Again, we’re giving away free trials, and I promise you guys you’re going to love it. It’s going to change your business. It’s changed mine already, and will continue to do so for the rest of my life.

I’m at the office now. I’m going to go in. I’m going to push the last few buttons and give everybody everything live, and in a few hours it’ll be show time. I appreciate you guys listening in, and we’ll talk to you soon.
