Speaker 2: 00:18 back. You guys are literally. I cannot tell you how excited I am. I've been trying to get this guy on my podcast for forever. He's one of our eight figure award winners. He's been crushing it lives out in Dubai and I want to. First of all, I'll let you guys. I'll talk more about him in just a second, but first of all right, we'll look at. Welcome to the show.
Speaker 3: 00:37 Thank you so much for having me.
Speaker 2: 00:40 I am so excited. You're celebrating your first wedding year anniversary here. Pretty quick archer. Yes. Yes. That's pretty exciting stuff. So he lives out in Dubai with his wife and they mean my gosh, you have to understand. Well, first time I started seeing his stuff, he actually invited Russell to come speak in Germany to a group of like 10, 15,000 business owners. I was like, what? Who are you? How did this come about? How have you created this then as you go on to find out, it was basically been selling out live events, literally hundreds of thousands of people. I mean you've been in this business a long time and crushing it and again, I think it's probably one of the neat things I look at is a most people here in the states may not know you, but in Germany and in Europe and now in Dubai, you're kind of like a Tony Robbins, grant Cardone, Tai Lopez all bundled in together as far as this massive celebrity out there. So I'm super excited, super excited to have you on. So help people understand what it is that you really do. I mean, because you've, you're doing tens of millions of dollars a year, that's not an easy feat.
Speaker 3: 01:49 Yeah. Take all the personalities, you know, like all the counterparts in Europe and I'm the guy in the background doing marketing. So like a bunch of salespeople working for me, have a bunch of people were doing websites for me. I do a lot of copywriting, especially facebook advertising, do very campaigns, very big launches. Um, started like this step by step, I got another one.
Speaker 2: 02:36 So tell people a little bit, what are some of the types of results you're getting for these people
Speaker 3: 02:42 you already said over launches? So like for example, we launched for 48 hours, 72 hours, four days, five days, a couple of times in a year was facebook ads and everything. A lot of free plus shipping books right now was one book we sold over 100 and some other books, like five figures and yeah, like getting leads stuff.
Speaker 2: 03:34 So tell me what verticals and niches are you in
Speaker 3: 03:39 branding, personal branding. For example, Greg Robbins was Germany was a personality, high ticket sales in Germany and a fitness business building also.
Speaker 2: 04:02 So you basically help them fill their events and then at the events you help them maximize their back of the room sales?
Speaker 3: 04:10 Yes. Yes, yes. Exactly. Exactly. Yep.
Speaker 2: 04:18 So typically are these paid events that you're getting people to attend? Are they free events? What's the typical range?
Speaker 3: 04:25 No, the lowest ticket prices and um, the highest.
Speaker 2: 04:44 Fantastic. So now they come to the event, uh, it's put on basically by the celebrities in, in Europe or in Germany. And then what types of things are they pitching at the event? What types of products or services?
Speaker 3: 04:58 Yeah, the last two years we started our next live event since the end of last year, we also started the transition to online products like to mix of online products, like information products was super customer service, one life event extra, which is a additionally people can come and I think this is also where the trend is going because people, the only one paid for implementation. This is like the typical life events like the seminar you attended in the past years. They were always like, you get so much information, information, information, information. Like all the content implementation was an online course you can follow. You can give some templates. For example, for
Speaker 2: 06:17 I know you've been doing a ton inside of clickfunnels as far as creating templates for, for your clients and for your users and using the share funnel links and things to make that happen. And what are the typical price points that you're selling at the event? For the next live event
Speaker 3: 06:35 or one thousand nine hundred and three thousand five hundred dollars.
Speaker 2: 07:01 Awesome. So are you working primarily with business owners? Are you working with consumers? What's your target primarily?
Speaker 3: 07:09 Yes. It depends on the more customer focused by himself character, how he is more like 70 percent for the sales guy. For Germany, we attract way more and it's amazing ratio and of business owners like pretty cool.
Speaker 2: 07:51 So how did you get into this? I mean it's not like you've got 50 years of experience doing this thing, so, uh, how'd you get started?
Speaker 3: 08:04 Same day I found my first company was all my savings I had was like a fitness clothing, clothing as the time I didn't have a free program like a went to Alibaba put up the website was wordpress and so many different shops at the time. It took me like one and a half year to get started. But eventually I got started online store but it took so much time. But in the meantime, I acquired all the skills I needed to have like a basic understanding. I got pretty good at facebook advertising, so then I started to partner with some local guy who had like some agency for Seo Agency and then I became like, his partner was like 20 years older than me, like Microsoft Germany in 1920 at the time.
Speaker 2: 09:43 What advice would you give to other people who are trying to figure this thing out?
Speaker 3: 09:48 The focus on and uh, it's unbelievable. So like two books, which I would recommend a book is from Ryan Holiday. Ego's the enemy books and yeah, yeah,
Speaker 2: 10:31 no, I totally agree. The daily Stoic in great books. I've read both of those. And again, maximum mark psycho cybernetics actually is going to be one of the books for two Comma Club x coaching students. They may actually see that coming to them shortly at one of our favorites. So
Speaker 3: 10:47 yeah,
Speaker 2: 10:48 super excited about that. Tell me right now you're out in Dubai. And it was kind of funny. We were sitting here before we got the recording going, you're life, you know, now I'm doing this consulting kind of on a, b, two bcm point and I don't even have business cards and these people like who are you? So I'd like you to kind of address how do you deal when you're working in Btby, when you don't have business cards and yet you still are able to get the sales. What are some of the tactics and things you're using from a B to b standpoint?
Speaker 3: 11:13 Yes. In Dubai there are no, no small deal. Big, big deal. Crazy people here. And it's very funny. So I got more and more involved but they don't have no business cards, no website, no linkedin profile. I deleted it like two years ago I think. And, and yeah, and the thing is like building bullying, like people start talking why you don't need it yet because I'm good to go. I'm focusing so much on the things I work on and I need to acquire new customers right now. Pretty good status. Actually. I'm not complaining.
Speaker 2: 12:19 I've love about you. Is your confidence. I mean, you are so confident for one, I mean you've got the stats to prove it. You can do what you do, but how I live, I was having this conversation, my kids the other day as far as being confident and really when you're talking to people being very, very certain because it, at least my experience has always been whoever is the most certain typically winds the winds in most situations. So how have you acquired that type of certainty and confidence?
Speaker 3: 12:46 Yeah. No shortcuts to some certain levels. You will have problems in different ways. Uh, it's all about resilience and resilience and I'm very fortunate to say that I never had an easy childhood until I was a teenager, but when I'm looking back right now and it was like the biggest and best lesson I ever had. Even the biggest challenges. Yeah.
Speaker 2: 13:42 That's awesome. As far as if people are trying to get ahold of you or would like to find out more information about you. I know you don't have a website, you don't have business cards. How do people find out more about you? If they'd like to reach out to.
Speaker 3: 13:55 But somebody was asking me on instagram and hurt my ego a little bit, so I bought them.
Speaker 2: 14:13 How much that domain cost you? That's a good one. I build brands. I know they get pretty pricey these days.
Speaker 3: 14:30 Expensive right now. It's crazy. I also wanted a few months ago like that was very cheap and I got. We can offer a couple of hundred bucks last week. Yeah, it's crazy. You a lot of good funnels. You can buy the domains
Speaker 2: 14:58 greatly. Appreciate your time. I know a out to buy. It's much later than it is here right now. So I appreciate your taking the time. Any parting words or advice for our listeners?
Speaker 3: 15:08 Um, any advice? Probably, yeah, there was one tipping point when I figured out that was one of the launches when I just did was what Russell was saying. I read a little bit of a funnel university and they've put together like a sales page and didn't look that good. Uh, the tiger tickets. 11,000. And with facebook, just facebook ads. And what I realized the money is there, you just need to channel it. And if you have the ability to channel it, you need to realize that confidence to repeat it, like how you're building the skill and I can sell to yourself even if you're not at the stage right now, did you do generate a lot of revenues for facebook ads, is you can sell this idea to you that all the money is out there and you need to channel it directly. What Russell says pretty much have success. Yeah,
Speaker 2: 16:32 I love it. Well, again, thanks so much for all that you're doing in the clickfunnels community. I know you've been using our platform quite a bit to fill in a lot of events with it. And uh, I wish you all the continued success and enjoy Dubai.
