Why Dave Chose to do this Podcast by Himself:

Dave Woodward wants to discuss with us his own entrepreneurial experiences and then relates them to the pain each of us experience as entrepreneurs. He gives 3 secrets to his success and that of others who have fought the solo-preneur battles and come out on top.

Key Points in Dave’s Podcast:

  • When your doctor tells you back surgery, although your worst nightmare, is an unavoidable prospect what do you do? (3:08)
  • We’re all by ourselves as entrepreneurs most of the time, but we don’t need to have every hat resting on our head. (6:04)
  • If you work alone as a solopreneur and you’re not going to masterminds you’re not living your full potential. (6:51)
  • As an entrepreneur, there are an endless number of things that provide value to you. (9:40)
  • Asking for help is never a sign of weakness but it assuredly will help stimulate growth in your business. (10:24)

Quotable Moments:

“I just want to let you know that there is nothing wrong with reaching out for help.”

“Find out what area do you need the most help with this year and focus on that one need and join a coaching program or mastermind for that.”

“Don’t wait until things get so bad that you literally have to have surgery in your business where you have to cut things off and go with something super drastic.”

Other Tidbits of the Podcast:

Dave doesn’t like to divulge a lot about himself, but through talking with a personal coach of his he felt opening up about his past experiences would have potential with helping others know they can be successful as well.

Dave is a believer in capitalism. He’s fanatic about the fact that small businesses have the potential to rule the world.

“If you take nothing away from this training except this one key point: if you have a new contact, a new purchase, or failed payment those are the three ways that ClickFunnels can send trigger information going out.”

“The truth is that automation frees you up so that you can connect with your customers more and stop doing all of the little tasks that are getting in the way of your day.”

Why Dave Chose to Interview Tyler Shaule:

Tyler is a 2 Comma Club award winner and the Executive Director of a Christian children’s summer camp in Canada, the best job in the world if you ask Tyler. But as his camp faced shrinking enrollment numbers he saw that moving marketing and registration online would be a good move for his business. The only problem was he didn’t know how to do it.

He eventually found our ClickFunnels software and began applying the “offline” principles he was familiar with to drive up the online sales (about $1.12 million in 8 months) for camp sessions. Tyler has even been able to receive an award from a national fundraising association from his donation funnel.

Not only has he found success in increasing the revenue for his summer camp, but other businesses have reached out to know how he did it. Since most of them are “offline” coaches and service he finds a lot of relatability to their struggles. Tyler has been able to help these new clients of his make the same trip he did to getting their own “online” clients. Now he has his own consulting business where he gets paid up to $10k per client.

Almost forgot to mention this last part, 5 years ago he was a high school math teacher. Now what was your excuse for not following your dream again?

Tips and Tricks You can Use in Your Own Business:

  • From Math Teacher to Camp Director to Online Marketer (1:04)
  • Tyler’s $1.2 million funnel logistics (4:29)
  • Increasing retention when you only sell a week-long camp trip (8:41)
  • Tyler Turned his “Free+Shipping” Funnel into a “Donor-Conversion” Funnel (14:06)
  • Starting up a Camp-Marketing Consultancy when everyone wants to know how you’re doing well (17:36)
  • Getting in contact with Tyler Shaule (19:38)

Quotable Moments:

“If I can do it with a summer camp in Canada, you can do it with anything.”

“In our industry, the buyer’s journey is like 6 months to 8 months long. So, we kind of have to walk with them throughout that whole time.”

“That’s what I want to do, I want to put that word out, encourage regular people like me to just jump in, and get ready for the success that can come when you have the right Mentors, the right tools, and the right mindset to just really get in there and do it.”

Other Tidbits of the Podcast:

As Tyler’s business relies on their ability to invoke trust in customers so they can see why it’s good for the kids to attend the camp and why it’s safe to leave their kids at this camp. He was able to solve this problem through the use of social media posting of other families.

Why Dave Chose to Talk about the Secrets of Emotional Connection:

Recovering from recent back surgery has created a couple of learning opportunities for Dave. He reveals what Russell taught him about how to truly connect with your audience. He introduces the concepts of feel, felt, found and how they relate to the people you want to serve. He also dives in to how you can use the concept of emotional connection in your videos and sales copy to increase your connection with your audience.

Tips and Tricks for You:

  • Russel helped Dave realize the importance of breaking down your own walls in relationships inside and outside of business (1:30)
  • Don’t give other people the impression that you only care for service-level relationships (2:46)
  • Using “Feeling Words” (4:09)
  • True Empathy (5:21)
  • Selling people on emotion will backfire if you’ve built the emotion their feeling on misconceptions (7:17)
  • Dave cares a ton about people yet struggles in how to correctly convey this to them (9:36)

Quotable Moments:

“One of the reasons that you’re struggling right now with trying to connect with more people in your stories is you never will let people know how you’re really feeling. You won’t allow yourself to let the walls down and be more vulnerable.”

“It’s fun having Russel as a business partner but also as a dear friend. We’ve known each other for over a decade now and it allows us to just be like brothers sometimes.”

Other Tidbits of the Podcast:

Dave briefly touched on how Jason Fladlien broke down how he felt during one of Russel’s Webinars after he had already pitched to increase Russel’s sale rate and decrease the refund rate. Jason spent nearly an hour going over this and helping people resolve concerns before they even thought they had any to solidify their resolve of needing this product. After they had realized the need they had for the product, they were then able to earn back the money they spent twice as fast as before because of the emotional drive that they had also been sold on.

Why Dave Chose to Interview Julie:

People are always asking me what they need to do to fix a funnel that is not working the way they thought it would. Julie Stoian outlines the steps that she uses on hers and her client’s funnels. Realize almost all funnels when you first create them do not work as well as they should. You will want to listen to this one a couple of times. There is also a transcript of this episode so you can print off the details.

Tips and Tricks for Your Business:

  • Your funnel can “break”. When it does, you’ve got to look at your numbers (1:21)
  • Fixing copy (4:17)
  • Sorry you have to hear this but you have to be willing to light a match to $1,000 for your funnel and ads (9:08)
  • Know that if your front-end funnel breaks even or has some percentage of profit then that is a successful funnel (10:52)
  • Change your funnels step by step and look at the numbers after each step (13:12)

Quotable Moments:

“If you’re just working on a $100 budget, it’s going to take a long time to generate the traffic to even determine if the funnel is working or not.”

“I would say the very first thing you do is tweak the copy. And if you’re tweaking the copy so much that it sounds like a different offer then there’s information there.”

“You have to be willing to spend $1,000 at least on a funnel and in ads. If you’re not willing to spend that then you’re not going to get enough numbers going through to see if it’s really working or not working.”

Why Dave Chose to Interview Bryant:

Bryant Garvin has been running ads for over 12 years. He is the ads guy at "Purple"Where he spends more in a Day than what most companies spend in a month. He knows what he is talking about. He explains how to make partners out of your vendors. He reveals his strategy on using multiple networks to scale ads. He even discusses his top 3 hidden networks no one else is using.

Tips and Tricks for Your Business:

  • Bryant has realized over the years how overly obsessed people get on one advertising outlet (1:16)
  • The price of focusing on one platform through looking at the cost to reach 1,000 people [CPM] (2:24)
  • The scaling of Purple Mattress to be able to spend $50k/day on Facebook ads and remain profitable (4:38)
  • Bryant breaks down why Youtube can be more valuable than Facebook for your videos (7:44)
  • If you’re looking to migrate your videos to Youtube, Bryant has some words of advice (9:38)
  • Brand lift is super helpful, luckily if you’re like us and have never heard of it Bryant gives us the low down (13:00)
  • Other than YouTube and Facebook, Bryant has 15-16 other advertising channels going for his product (20:36)

Quotable Moments:

“They’ve gotten in trouble with putting all of their eggs in one basket. And, really, it’s about strategically growing across all platforms and becoming OMNIPRESENT.”

“So we’re always looking for a unique place where everybody else isn’t playing where we can still reach the people we want without having to compete with everybody else.”

“If you are stuck in one channel and that’s all you’re using to drive your revenue, something will happen eventually: and you will go out of business or close to it so you’ve got to diversify it.”

Other Tidbits of the Podcast:

Bryant Garvin and his company have helped Purple Mattress launch and become astronomically successful. You can tell just how successful they are by the amount of times you continually see their ads consistently on varying platforms.

Although this podcast is not a plug for using Youtube for ads, Bryant brings up several great points as to how it’s underused. While Facebook’s ads have recently received a 117% increase, Youtube’s have remained stable for years.

Bryant’s main wish to leave with all of us is for us not to all be “One Trick Ad Ponies”. If we all want to build a true brand then you need to be diverse. You need to be testing where your audience is to see where you should be pushing ads to. Once you see where your audience is you will then be able to see where you can afford to make efforts to expand your audience and reach.

Quotable Moments:

“Once you have that image and your template you can just all different kinds of bridge pages and you only need one funnel. You could have 50 different bridge pages if you want but you only need that one funnel. Then all you need is different pins and put them on Pinterest.”

“Don’t get overwhelmed and think you have to become this massively cool blogger to get on Pinterest. All you have to do is make a couple of bridge pages and get on those group boards and you can start gaining momentum.”

Why Dave Chose to Share about his time at Genius Network:

Dave Woodward attended Joe Polish’s Genius Network November 2017. Here he shares the value bombs he learned in the 2 days he was there.

Tips and Tricks for Your Business:

  • You can’t read the label of the jar that you’re in so you’ll need to look from an outside perspective to see what situation you’re really in (3:22)
  • Focus is something that you do, not something you have. You have to continually work on it to maintain it(3:46)
  • Jason Fladlien reinvented using testimonials, content, and getting 150 “yes’” (5:56)
  • Randi Zuckerberg’s balance of work and life (8:26)
  • Tony Robbins wants you to get obsessive with finding who you’re selling to and why they would want to buy (11:10)
  • Fall in love with your customer, not your product (14:13)
  • Buying back time (16:53)
  • Be 100% in charge but with no control, give the control to others. Funny concept right? (19:10)

Quotable Moments:

“As you take a look at your life try and focus on what you can get exponential returns on. You’re really trying to maximize your time”

“Too often people don’t want to put themselves out there into stressful situations. You have to get out there, you have to live on that. You have to realize there’s so much left that you’ve got to give and get uncomfortable. Get use to being uncomfortable”

“It doesn’t matter if you are a [glass] half full or a [glass] half empty kind of person. It only matters if you are going to fill the glass”

Other Tidbits of the Podcast:

Dave’s favorite one-liner from Genius Network was: “Life is easy when you live it the hard way and life is hard when you live it the easy way.” Dave is a huge enthusiast of grinding through the hard times so you can enjoy the finished product so much more as you feel the accomplished feeling coursing through you.

If you’re not throwing up once a month because of how hard of the intensity you’re pushing at then you’re not trying hard enough. Just don’t take that too literally. Randi Zuckerberg, the brain behind Facebook Lives, advised this to her audience purely as a metaphor to remind us of how much we really can do.

Tony Robbins told Dave and the rest of those at the conference that a belief is a poor substitute for an experience. How many people do you know that have an abundance of beliefs but little to no actions to go along with them? These kinds of people don’t have as sound of an understanding of what it truly is they believe as much as someone who goes out and acts on their thoughts own notions.

Why Dave Chose to Interview Julie Stoian:

Julie Stoian is the FIRST female Dream Car Winner Affiliate, she’s rocking her new minivan in style. Not only was she a Dream Car Affiliate though she is also a 2 Comma Club winner and even a member of Inner Circle. She has become the best at what she does and we’re excited for her to help you learn how you can do the same in your business.

Tips and Tricks for Your Business:

  • You can become the best in the world at what you do, if not the best than at least better than what you already were (1:50)
  • There’s importance with becoming obsessed with what you do (4:16)
  • The greatest in the world has mastered their craft to the extent where they are able to help others get to the same level they’re at (7:16)
  • When you teach others what you do, you can be learning more for yourself than you’re teaching your students (9:22)
  • The greatest success you can have is to mentor someone to the extent where they surpass you (10:06)

Quotable Moments:

“There’s only a limited ‘Best in the World’ slots. But I think a lot of people forget if you aim high, you’ll go a lot further than if you aim low.”

“I see this happen all the time with you, with Russell, and with all the people at ClickFunnels is this idea of obsession. People that become the best in the world become completely 1000% obsessed with what they are doing.”

“You see that happens when people become the best at what they do, they stop focusing on the money. They know that the money comes with the value and start to focus more on their legacy.”

Other Tidbits of the Podcast:

How much are you willing to do for your business or clients?

Julie’s dentist told her a few years back about the importance of flossing, she had been told this her whole life and had little faith she could change this habit of forgetting to floss. However, she decided to take action and finally devote the time to develop the habit. Years later her she’s still flossing and she’s learned to apply this principle in her own business.

Life has more meaning as money becomes less of a focus and your legacy takes its place.

Julie has set the goal this year of becoming one of the best funnel building teachers in the world. She loves what she does and now that her dream has finally become a valid source of income she can really start to devote all her time into it.

Why Dave Chose to Interview Phil Singleton:

Ezra Firestone reveals his secrets to scaling e-commerce businesses. He has been doing this for over 12 years. He reveals what multiple you need to be at to be profitable. How to pick an industry and dive deep into a profitable niche. Most importantly he tells you step by step what you need to do to scale your business from startup to 6, 7 and even 8 figures. He consults on multi-million-dollar e-comm acquisitions and reveals his secrets in this episode.

Tips and Tricks for Your Business:

  • Ezra is a firm believer in focusing on your product’s multiple as opposed to its initial price point (2:47)
  • We’re going to take a brief break from the value bombs of selling multiples to let you in on how Ezra got his business up to 8 figures (5:41)
  • Premium products is someplace that Ezra feels the most comfortable spending his time and resources (16:27)
  • Ezra knows that his business model is not the best one in the world, but it works for him the way that he wants it (21:15)
  • Sales Process, you’ve got to understand sales process if you’d like to improve the use of your ad spending (26:53)
  • Ezra’s last tip he wants to share with us is the importance of video marketing (28:15)

Quotable Moments:

“I lean now towards mass market. I want to be able to say this product is relative to anyone of this gender in this age range. That’s my ideal, right, and then you niche down from there.”

“What I’m trying to do is plant seeds, water those seeds every month for four months, and grow a mango tree that feeds my family for generations. I don’t want to just go out and spear a bunch of fish one day.”

“More things have failed than worked.”

Other Tidbits of the Podcast:

Ezra’s business may have a yearly revenue in the millions, but his heater breaks for unknown reasons at the most inconvenient times just like the rest of us.

Ezra learned that losing money on the short run for marketing is what catapults your business forward in the long run.

If you can sell 30 $5 ticket items that’s great, BUT Ezra wants you to think of how you’re going to pay for more ads to get other people to buy it. Will those same people come back to buy again? Not likely.

With transparency, your company can get the jump on this competition.

Ezra comes forth with his and Russel’s secret Ju-Jitsu vs. Wrestler square off they had in the kitchen at Pirates Cove. We are potentially going to be presented with a round 2 on Funnel Hacker TV down the road. Prepare yourselves for a showdown that’ll rock the internet harder than the release of “What Does the Fox Say” on YouTube.
