Episode Recap:

Before we do anything in my company, we funnelhack. That includes not just funnels, but our copy, our youtube videos, our facebook and instagrams - everything. And funnelhacking is not copying - it's finding the structures that are proven time and time again. I just funnelhacked to help me craft the structure around my newest book! This is all about coming back to the essence of what works, the foundations of success, and it's time to double down on first funnelhacking what works, then moving forward and taking over the world!

I've done YouTube before. I had five or six channels. In fact, one of my channels got quarter a million followers. We got the big play button, we've had videos get millions of views. With that said, I still missed it. I guarantee, there's people, some of you guys who are selling courses on YouTube and you still missed it.

What's up, everybody? This is Russell. Welcome back to Marketing Secrets podcast. Hope you guys are having a great day, week, month, year, wherever you are at right now.

I want to jump in here, because I want to go back to the basics for a few minutes. And the reason why is because, obviously the ClickFunnels team has grown, we have, I don't even know, 300, 400 employees, contractors, all kind of stuff. And, anyway, and there's a million different things that we're doing, right? From building funnels, writing copy, driving traffic, doing customer support, doing a million things, right?

And it's interesting, because obviously it's physically impossible for me to jump into every department and look at what everyone's doing, all that kind of stuff, but whenever I do go into whatever section, or department, or thing, it's fascinating to me that the same thing is the answer to almost every single problem. And the answer is funnel hacking, which is funny, because most people think funnel hacking is just to build funnels.

But I want to talk about the concept of what funnel hacking is, because I think this is what a lot of people are missing. And so I want to give this to you, because this will hopefully help shortcut everything in your life, okay?

So what is funnel hacking? The concept came about because, back in the day, when I was trying to figure out how to do funnels, and we're creating these things, I would never sit down at a blank page like, what should I do on the first page? What should the second page be, right?
What I would do, is I would go and I'd look for inspiration. In fact, I remember when we were building ClickFunnels one night. It was Todd, Dylan Jones, and me, we were in Boise working on something. And Todd was programming ClickFunnels. Dylan was designing the UI, and the editor, and that kind of stuff. And I was writing the copy. Man, it was probably 2:00 or 3:00 in the morning, we were working all night long.

So I was working on copy, and for some sales letter, VSL, or something that we were doing, and, literally, I spent four or five hours, I was just looking at thousands, not thousands, hundreds of different video sales letters, and I'm looking at it, and I'm watching them, I'm listening to them. And it's interesting. Because I think that ...

We were in a small office, we were all sitting together, and probably three or four hours in, Dylan walked over to me, and he's like, "I've been watching, or hearing, your process for the last couple hours. It's so fascinating, because your process is the same as my process."

I'm like, "What do you mean? You're designing code, and UI, and stuff like that." And he's like, "For me, when I do UI, I don't just sit down and make up UI, and it comes out the top of my head. I go to sites like dribble.com, and different places, and I'll look at a thousand people who've designed different UIs for this app, or for that, or for that, and for that. I look at them, and then I go to different software, different things. I look at a thousand things to create the ideas that I'm going to have."

I was like, "That's just like me. I don't just write a sales letter. I sit and I listen to 10,000 sales letters, and I transcribe, and I outline. I'm like, what was the structure? What was the this, and the that, and the boom, boom, boom, and all the different things, right? And I take all that, and then from there, then I go and I create my version."

What I think people think funnel hacking is, unfortunately, is they look at one of my funnels, they look at it, and they copy it. That's not funnel hacking. Funnel hacking is looking at all of the inspiration out there, and looking at it closely, and ...

What do they say? Someone said this once, if you copy from one person, it's plagiarism, if you copy from a lot of people, it's creativity, or something. I don't know, some version of that. But that's the key, is looking at a whole bunch of stuff.

So what funnel hacking is, let's say I'm going to go launch a book. What I don't do, is I don't look at Russell's book funnel, copy it. What I do, is I go try and find 50 book funnels. And I literally do this every time we launch a new funnel.

First step, step number one, is funnel hacking. We literally go and say, "Oh, we're doing a webinar funnel, we're doing this." Even though I've done a million webinar funnels, we go down, and we go and find all the webinar funnels that are active right now, all the ones we see people running ads to, all the ones that look like they're working. We make a Trello board, we throw them all in there, and we look at them all, and we look at the hooks, and the angles, and the colors, and the layout, the design, the copy, all the stuff.

And from all that research, then we create ours, right? It's interesting, we've been hiring people to help on our social media team, both on YouTube, and Instagram, and things like that. And they're doing a great job, but a lot of times they're coming in and they're trying to just think through and be creative, and writing their own scripts, writing their own things. I'm like, ah, this is good.

But, step number one, if I'm going to do Instagram, if I'm going to do Reels, I'm going to go look at 50, 100, 200 different people's reels, look at all of it. And then, from there, create something amazing.

What most people are doing right now, is they go and they see Hormozi, who's killing it on Instagram, and they copy him, right? Everyone's just copying Hormozi, right? Or they go see something else, and they just copy it.

Funnel hacking is so much more than that. It's looking at all the things.

Same thing, we were putting a new ManyChat thing, and I think the default was people were like, "Okay, I'm going to sit down, I'm going to write a ManyChat sequence." And they wrote it, and sent it to me. I'm like, "This is good, but the way to make it great is ... How many people did you funnel? How many chat follow-up sequences did you look at? Was it 10, 20, 50, 100? How many did you look at before you started writing the first one?" That's what people are missing, right?

Customer support is, like, I don't know how to do this customer support thing. It's like, okay, well, how many people did you look at? How many other ... I don't know. Every department, every single thing, that's the key. How do I become good at podcasts? How do I become good at videos? How do I become good at ...

Any role, the key is coming back and saying ... It's understanding, to be successful, the first step is funnel hacking. It's the eight hours of me looking at every book funnel known to man, before I start my book funnel. That's where success comes from. It's the eight to 10 hours of me looking at video scripts, and copy, and going through swipe files, and reading headlines, and looking at the highest converting ads, before I write my first ad.

That's the secret. That's what most people are missing. Most people look at one person, they copy it, or they just try to be creative off the top of their head, or whatever the thing might be, and they're missing the rest of it.

And so that's what I wanted to just bring back to you guys today, is just this concept of funnel hacking. Before you do anything, before you write an ad, before an email, before you do anything, the first step is never to start writing, or start designing, or start coloring, or whatever your thing is.

The first step, is spend that first eight hours ... And eight hours may be an over-exaggeration, but it might also be an under-exaggeration. It might be two or three days.

Right now, I've been working out on my Secrets to Success book, literally for four years, I think I signed the contract with it. It's still not done. And I keep writing it, and rewriting, and tweaking, and it just hasn't become good yet.

And then, last night, I was talking to Annie Grace and Eileen Wilder, and we're talking ... We have a Voxer group where we talk about just nerdy stuff that gets us all excited. And we started talking about my book again, and I looked at the way I wrote Dotcom Secrets, Expert Secrets, and Traffic Secrets book, where there's a style of how I wrote them. But I think I've been struggling with this new book, because I've been trying to write my new book in that style.
And I was like, what are the books that sell the most? And we were talking about this, and I had ideas, I was like, I bet if I structure it like this, like the books that I've heard of, this is how they structured it. And then Eileen went out there and started funnel hacking, and she pulled back like 50 of the bestselling books of all time, they all follow that structure.

And Annie jumped on, and she's like, "Hey, do you notice how I did it in my book here? Notice how Rachel Hollis did it in Girl, Wash Your Face? You notice how Jordan Peterson did it here?" And she was showing me the structure of the books in this one, that one, that one.

And I was like, "Oh my gosh." And so I spent the last 24 hours funnel hacking how to structure the layout of my book, the content, the ideas, the stories. And from that process, Annie was able to pull out three or four different frameworks I'd never heard of before.

I literally, I took Girl, Wash Your Face, and Girl, Stop Apologizing, Rachel Hollis's two books and ... Girl, Wash Your Face sold like 10 million copies, one of the bestselling books of all time. What did she do to make it such a bestselling book?

And so I put on Audible, 4X speed, and I had the book, and I played it, and I started speed reading, and I sped read the introduction, and the first three or four chapters. And I did the same thing with her other book.

And all of a sudden, I was like, "Oh, I got it. That's what she did. That's how she structured it. I missed it every single time, but now, because I'm doing it back to back to back ..."

I looked at Jordan Peterson's two books, same thing. I started looking at ... I started funnel hacking all these different authors. And I realized that the way to make a bestselling book in this genre is different. And it was fascinating.

So, yeah, that's just kind of what I wanted to bring to you guys, is just this concept of funnel hacking. That it's not just for building funnels, it's for everything in your business, in your life, and all the things, right?

Find out who's successful. Find out the 10, 20, 30, 50, as many people as you can find, and spend eight to 10, to 12, to 24 hours, 48 hours, whatever that is, ahead of time. And then you go and you start writing, then you go and you start structuring.

Just one little thing I learned from Girl, Wash Your Face, and Girl, Stop Apologizing, just one little nugget, was the structure of the entire book was based on one principle, or maybe one theory. One theory. And the introduction introduces that theory, hands it on a silver platter. And the rest of the book is trying to prove that one thing. And it's like, oh, that's so cool. That is so cool to see that pattern, that I would've missed, because I'm just writing a book like everybody else, right?
Looking for the patterns, that's what funnel hacking is about. Looking for the patterns. And then, also, part of it's looking for the patterns you can model, but then the other side, I think, is looking outside of your ...

Especially funnel hacking, I'm looking outside of my specific market to find ideas. Everyone in the internet marketing space has copied my book funnel, so there's not a lot of new creativity, it's just something everyone copies it.

But I go to the health space, I go to some other spaces, and I start seeing what they're doing, and they're bringing in unique things that aren't being done other places. And so I can take those ideas, and innovate, by moving them from one industry to another. Does that make sense?

So, anyway, funnel hacking 101. Maybe this is funnel hacking 201, I don't even know. But it's there in every aspect of your business, everything you're doing.

Train yourself, train your teams, train your people. I'm going to do another training with my entire team, going a little deeper on this concept of funnel hacking, and helping them to understand it. Because I think, now that we've grown to this many people, there's people that ...
When you first build a company, you know every employee, every hire. Then, eventually, it gets to the point where you don't know the people who hire the people, who hire the people, because it's grown so big and it's like ... So I want to come back, and I'm going to plan on, with our team next month, is going deep into this with everybody, and getting everyone from every department thinking about what they do, through this lens of funnel hacking.

So I want to share with you guys today. Hope this helps. Go out there and funnel hack, whatever you're doing. Pause what you're doing, if you're stuck with what you're doing now, pause, go out and funnel hack. Which means you can find 10, 20, 30, 50 people who are already successfully doing what you're doing, look at it, get the ideas, get inspiration from there. Then step back into your work, and you'll see the results of what you're creating dramatically magnified, because you did the funnel hacking process prior to the execution of everything you're creating.

Hope that helps you guys. Appreciate you all. And we'll talk to y'all again next week. Bye, everybody.

Transcript:

What's up everyone? This is Russell. Welcome back to the Marketing Secrets Podcast. Today episode's going to be a little different, and I'm nervous about even bringing this idea to you because I think most of you guys can hear this idea and be like, oh yeah, sure. Of course, Russell. Makes total sense. I'm like, no, no, no. If you respond that way, then you missed it. And so I'm trying to figure how to pre-frame this so you will freak out when you hear it the same way that I'm freaking out about it, because this is one of the biggest insights I've had this year for sure, and probably over the last, I don't know, outside of funnels, this might be the greatest, most exciting thing that I've stumbled upon in a long time. And it's not something new that's hard because I'm going to tell you and you're like, oh, yeah, of course. I'm like, no, but it's looking at it differently. And when I looked at this differently all sudden, I had the epiphany. I was like, oh my gosh, this is huge.

And so there's some of the caveat. I'm also nervous because, again, of all the people, I've studied everything. As the chief funnel hacker of the planet Earth, I've bought everyone's course in every market. Real estate, stocks, trading, weight loss. I buy them all because I want to see what people are doing. So I've gone through every product, every course, every training. I listen to podcasts in 50 different verticals, and so it's hard to get new things past me at this point. I consume voraciously. I don't think there's many people who have their hands on the pulse of this market like I do because I'm obsessed with, I love it. It's my art, it's my passion. It's everything.

And so that's why when I tell you this thing, I want you to understand, I've missed it for decades, two decades now I've missed this opportunity, and it wasn't until just recently the light bulb went off my head and I get it, and I'm investing insane amounts of time, energy, and money into it because I see the opportunity now. And so I'm going to tell you what it is. You're going to hear it and you're going to blow it off, and I'm going to try to explain to you, and I want you just to sit back and listen enough to be like, oh my gosh. As soon as you have that moment, then you got it. Until you have that moment, just keep relistening to this episode until you have it. So there you go.

Okay, so here is the big secret. It's this little website that will change everything for you, and it's called YouTube. I know Russell, I know what YouTube is. I already have YouTube channel, blah, blah, blah, blah. I went to the webinars, I spent the courses. No. So did I. Okay? And so let me tell you how I had the aha. A lot of you guys know that I spend, I don't know, million plus dollars a month, probably more than that at this point, driving traffic from Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, all of them. We're spending tons of money on every platform driving people into our funnels. That's how we grow our companies, all based on we spend money, they send traffic and we make money. So what's powerful about YouTube is if you do it correctly, it's the opposite. Instead of you spending money and them sending you traffic, instead they give you money and they give you traffic. Okay? So let me explain the aha when I had it.

So I was in Mexico, we do our Mastermind in Paradise with all of our two CCX Inner Circle members, and I always bring a couple people from the community to come up and speak. And this one I wanted to invite somebody who I just got to know over the last couple years name's Kathy Yoder and Kathy lives here in Boise where we do, and she has a couponing blog and she has a cookbook, and I knew that she had this funnel where she was selling cookbooks through and stuff like that, but I also knew her primary traffic source was YouTube. And so I asked her, I'm like, Hey, a lot of people in our audience love to use YouTube. Can you come and share what you're doing?

And I want to, again, this is my 500 caveats because I don't want you guys to miss this. I've done YouTube before. I had five or six channels. In fact, one of my channels got quarter a million followers. We got the big play button, we've had videos get millions of views. With that said, I still missed it. I guarantee, there's people, some of you guys who are selling courses on YouTube and you still missed it. So anyway, there's another caveat. So there's like 500 caveats on this one, just to make sure you don't miss it.

So Kathy got up, she gave her a presentation and she talked about how she had her YouTube channel and she was doing what most of us doing. We had a bunch of random videos, and then she decided to specialize in one thing. So she actually hid and got rid of a bunch of her videos except for ones that were tied around air fryers. Again, she's in the couponing, cooking, that market. And so she started doing air fryer recipes. And so she made a video and she share, here's five things you can make in an air fryer today. And then each week she made a new video and she also, she's smart. She didn't just throw random videos up there. She was being strategic, she was learning from different people. I know she went through Derral Eves coaching program who Derral's amazing. I'm going to talk about him towards the end here.

But she started making these videos and doing it correctly, and she started showing what was happening. And this was crazy. She'd be like, here's this video I posted and it got X amount of views, then this one and then this one. Then this was the video that went viral. It got on a hundred thousand views or 500,000, whatever it was. And here's the next one. And then here's how the channel started growing. She's showing this whole process, and again, this is her in her kitchen filming these things with her own camera. This is not high production studio, it's her just making these videos one a week, putting them out there and then showing how big each video, how big it was.

And then she started showing how much ad revenue she made from each these videos. It was crazy. She showed one video and was like, this video here made me $50,000 in ad revenue. This right here made me 85,000. This... And I'm like, wait, what? I was like, you posted the video and YouTube sent you like $50,000 or $80,000? And that's when the wheel started going off in my head. I'm like, oh my gosh. Instead of me spending money to get a million views, if you make a really good video the correct way, they will send you a check and they'll send you traffic.

So after Kathy's going through showing video by video how much money each of these videos are making her, then she showed her funnel stats. So in the description of her video, she's like, oh, go over here. Go get my cookbook. And she's selling thousands and thousands of copies of her cookbook through her funnel every single month. So not only is she getting paid to make these videos, she's getting all the traffic from YouTube to buy her cookbooks inside of her funnel. Plus, on top of that, she has other sponsors coming to her. Am I allowed to divulge into my business? But there's people writing her seven figure checks to sponsor inside of her videos. It's crazy.

And I was like, oh my gosh, I spent so much time me gambling, me, risking my money up front to get traffic, and then the traffic costs going up and up and up. And I've been doing that way. Well, I'm like, if I shift this around, what if I spent more time and did YouTube right? If instead of... And right now I've got two or three different channels, they're doing all sorts of stuff, what if I did it right? What if I learned from the best? How can I do it correctly the very first time?

And so I actually hired Derral. I paid him six figures. He came out for one day. And Russell, this is how you do it. And I obviously can't give you all the stuff he said. In fact, if you read his book, he's got a really good book. Go read the book. It's amazing. It'll give you 99% of what you need. But anyway, so Derral came out and spent a day with us, and the big aha I had was if you look at YouTube, not just like, here's a channel, I'm going to throw a bunch of videos on spam. Look at YouTube as if you're going to Netflix and you're pitching a show, what would your show be about? What's unique about it? What's interesting? Why people come and watch it. You're pitching to Netflix that idea, and as soon as you get a show that's good enough, people will pay you.

Then you go back and you start creating that. And you create it where it's just like a show. It's got to be consistent. The same thing, same format, same style, same thumbnail. Where it's a show not just like... if you're on my YouTube channel right now, it is great. We got 250,000 followers and there's a billion videos and they're all different, just random crap we're thrown up there and none of my videos get more than 15, 20,000 views. They all just kind of cap out there. And Derral's like, it's because you've got all these... They're all different topics. People can come YouTube, they're subscribing to a channel or a show and they want it to be the same. So he's like, you better if you have four different channels than just having one channel with all this different garbage on it.

And so we sat down and now we're building a show, and I'm going to be launching it here in the next couple months. I don't know. But the goal of this, again, it's going to take a while to build up and to grow, do it correctly. But imagine this. Imagine I create a video and instead of me spending who knows, a hundred thousand dollars in ads to promote a funnel, imagine I go and I just create a really, really good video. I post it on YouTube. So maybe I spend 10 grand making a really putting in the time and the effort to make a really good video, post it on YouTube. YouTube because the video was thought through and we follow the algorithm and all things they want, it goes out there and gets a million views. From that, I get a check for, I don't know how much, don't know, it all works. Let's say I get a check for 30 grand and I 3x my money. I made 30.

Instead of me spending 50 60 grand, I made 30 grand, which covered my ad cost. And then I got link in the description of my funnel and I go and sell 300 copies of my book from that video. So I got paid 20 grand net profit to get 300 book buyers and then get all the money from the book buyers. And then I do another video and another. And I keep doing that. And imagine, imagine how crazy it would be.

So what I've been doing over the last little bit with my kids is I want to see how these YouTubers are doing it. So I've been watching Mr. Beast, I've been watching Mark Rober, I've been watching all these things. And you look at Mr. Beast, he'll spend 10, 15, 20 million to make a video, but then that video gets 400 million views and he gets a check for, who knows, 10 million, I don't know what the numbers are, 10 million. So because he's spending a lot of money in production, he gets that money back plus profit on top of it, plus he gets all the traffic, plus he gets all the... It's just insane.

And so for you and for me, if I was anybody right now, in fact, I spent time with my nieces and nephews at our family reunion this week. I'm like, you guys need to start a YouTube channel. If you do this correctly, you do this for a year and a year from now, you'll be insanely rich as teenagers.

So anyway, this is the big aha I had. I'm spending so much money to get traffic. What if I just spent money creating really, really good videos, post them and I get paid from that and I get the traffic and you get the sponsorships and you get the branding and you get the... All the things that come from that.

Just a little flipping mindset. The key is, I believe, is learning how to do it correctly. Now, a couple cool things. Number one, Kathy Yoder's actually speaking at Funnel Hacking Live this year, I was like, you have to show this to everybody. I'm freaking out about, everyone else's going to freak out. So she's going to be at Funnel Hacking Live. So if you're not there yet, make sure you get your ticket and come to Funnel Hacking Live.
Again, if you go to funnelhackinglive.com, you get your tickets. But Kathy's going to show her whole process. And I don't even know what to say. You guys are going to freak out like I did so much so I'm figuring out how can I cut out five hours, or sorry, two hours a day, so 10 hours a week of my time to focus 100% on my YouTube channel. That's how valuable this is in my mind right now.

And then from that, you get paid plus you get traffic versus you pay and you get traffic now. So you get paid and you get the traffic. It's just this little shift in mindset that I think is huge.

It's funny because I've never done sponsorships on my podcast in the past before either, because I can make more money driving people in my funnels than other people should. But the reality is, what if I did start charging and I did start selling sponsorships on my podcast. Let's say I was making 10 grand a month or 50 grand a month, or a hundred grand a month, I don't know from sponsors in my podcast and I take that a hundred grand, I just dump it into more ads to keep growing the podcast.

I don't know, I've been so resistant to this forever that now, am I getting it now? A couple other YouTube hacks to know of. Number two is if you have a number, whichever number, I don't even know anymore. If you're running ads on YouTube channel, that's actually not a good thing. You will not get organic reach. That's one of the biggest problems I have with my channel of 250,000 followers is that we ran ads on there for a decade. So because of that, YouTube's like, oh, they're going to buy ads, therefore don't make these videos go viral or whatever it is. You get less reach because of that. And so we turned it off. It's hard to recover from that. So that was a big one.

So with this new thing, we're launching a brand new channel. We're never going to run ads on that channel. Again, it's a show. We're pitching it as if I was going to go to Netflix, what would that show look like? What would be interesting? How would I structure the videos? So it's watching a lot of videos. It's finding who's doing something that's similar? Who's getting millions of views? Who's got the big followers and subscribers? There's so many cool things that I want you guys to understand that again, I don't know it all yet, I'm still learning it. But again, we paid Derral six figures to come and train me for a day on how our me and my team are going to do it. So I'm excited to see the fruits of that. But for you guys, you should go get Derral's book on YouTube. If you go to Amazon, type in Derral Eves YouTube, his book will pop up and it's amazing. Go read it. It'll walk you through 90% of what we're doing right now with ours and give you guys just all the shortcuts.

But it's big. It's worth stopping and thinking about. It's worth funnel hacking a bunch of channels. It's worth figuring out how could you create something really good? Not that you have to put 10 grand into a video, but you can make videos for less. But as you make the money and it comes in, reinvest in good videos and reinvest, keep doing that because in five years from now, if I can turn all my ads, instead of me spending a million dollars a month in ads, instead if I'm getting a check for a million dollars a month from my content and I'm still getting the traffic, that's the aha. That's the shift in my head. It's why I think YouTube's better than all the other platforms.

I have tons of engagement and viewers on Instagram. They don't give me any money. Same thing on Facebook. Tons. I don't get any money. Podcast, right now. There's tons of you guys listen every single week for six years, whatever, seven, eight years, 10 years, man, over 10 years. I don't get paid for anything from that. If you go to my funnels to buy stuff, you do. But man, imagine if I got both. Imagine if I was getting a million dollars a month in ad revenue from YouTube and I got a million visitors a month.

Now, again, I'm not sure how much I'm allowed to say or not, but there's one YouTuber who we follow, my kids and I follow, and they have a whole bunch of videos. And after two or three years of providing these really good videos, they did a product launch and I saw the product launch, it was really good and my son and I bought the product and we love it. And it's one of Derral's clients. I said, how did that do? And he laughed, it killed them, they killed it. How much did they make? And the product, it was a subscription, so it was like 30 bucks a month, but you had to pay $300 one time. And I'm not going to remember the number, but it was somewhere between 30 and 40 million they did from one video. Boom, that crazy. It wasn't a huge product launch campaign and emails and sequences and everything. He just had a really good YouTube channel, really good following. He made one video that pushed his new continuity program once. Boom, 30, 40, 50 million, whatever it was. Crazy numbers. Crazy numbers.

Because so much goodwill built up. So much value, so much excitement. And one offer came out and boom, it exploded, right? Made me think, man, he had to wait three or four years to get paid. No, no, no. In the interim, he's getting paid millions of dollars a month from YouTube for creating these good videos. And then when he finally drops his offer, boom, it blows up.

So yeah, anyway, it's crazy. So hopefully I've sold you on re-looking at YouTube, rethinking through it. Again, and I think for a lot of you guys, do what I'm doing. I'm literally starting over from scratch. I fought it forever. I've spent so much time, I've got 8 million videos over here. I've got 250,000 followers. No, I'm just correctly. Because if I do it correctly in a year from now, it'll eclipse everything I've dreamt of.

And so we're starting over, it'll come soon. You hear me talk about it when it's live, I'm sure. But anyway, I think it's one of the big opportunities. So yeah, revisit YouTube. Think about through that lens of, man, I'm going to dedicate a year, two years of my life doing this correctly, doing it the way that Derral teaches. Just following that process to a T and two or three years from now, you'll get more traffic from that channel than you are from all your other advertising combined and they're paying you. They're paying you to advertise. Is that crazy?

I remember one of the things I thought about before, I was like, don't put ads on my videos because my competitors don't put ads on my video. So I turned all the ads off. I don't know how many tens of millions dollars I would've made from all my YouTube views, but I turned ads off because I didn't want anyone to advertise on my face. No. Instead, let them advertise on my face. I get a check for a million dollars each month and I get a million visitors to my funnel? Come on, come on. It's insane.

Anyway, all right, there you go. That's 15, almost 16 minutes of me convincing you YouTube is the thing. It's worth reinvestigating rethinking through. I'm putting the time, the energy into it now because I think it's that valuable and that important. And I think you should as well. Thanks again for listening. I appreciate you all.
