What Is A Sales Funnel And Why Every Business Needs At Least One

Do you know what a sales funnel is?

I bet you do.

Think about it…have you been to a restaurant or drive-thru lately?

Did the person taking your order offer you an additional item?

“Would you like fries with that?”

“Would you like to add a side salad?”

“Did you save room for desert?”

“Would like to go BIG?”

Those simple questions are perfect examples of a sales funnel at work.

A sales funnel is simply a process to take a person from point A to Point B.

Below is a simple sales funnel…


Businesses of all types use sales funnels to increase value, sell more products and deliver additional services.

Every business should have at least one sales funnel in place!

Below is a simple sales funnel that’s typically used to get a visitor’s email address and make the first offer…


Typically, a lead magnet (something of value – a PDF, video training, free product, etc.) is offered on the squeeze page in order to entice the visitor to give out their email address. The goal of the squeeze page is to get the visitor’s email address and move them to the next stage of the sales funnel.

The bridge page is used to deliver the lead magnet and introduce them to a product that will solve their problem or make their life easier in some way. The goal of the bridge page is to get the visitor to click thru to the sales page.

The sales page is where the product is explained and sold. This can be your product or service, or can be an affiliate offer.

As you can see, sales funnels are a vital aspect of any business.

Would you like to learn more about sales funnels and how to build them?

One of my favorite digital marketers, JayKay Dowdall, has just released a new training on how to build sales funnels…the right way!

JayKay is one of the best marketing trainers I’ve come across. His Destiny training on Facebook chatbots and his FB Masters Program on Facebook ads were stellar.

Learning how to build sales funnels is a great skill to learn for anyone in business, and is essential for anyone doing business online.

I highly recommend Funnelize!

In fact, I love the training so much that if you pick it up through me you’ll be invited to join my private Facebook group where we will work through the training together and help one another build sales funnels (plus some other great bonuses…watch the video for details).

Finally, A Lead Magnet Worth Giving Up Your Email For

One of the mantras in Internet Marketing is…the money is in the list.

List building is one of the most fundamental aspects of building an online business, but getting people to hand over valid emails has become more difficult due to the massive amount of spam sent and received every day.

In fact, many people guard their primary emails with the same vigilance as their credit card numbers.

In order to get people to hand over their best email address you have to offer them something of great value.

Well, my buddy Chad Eljisr teamed up with Marketing veteran, Chrissy Withers, to create an awesome PLR lead magnet that will appeal to anyone doing just about anything online.

The lead magnet is a massive 85+ page PDF full of video and marketing graphics resources that are FREELY available online.

Who wouldn’t want that?

Even better, Chad and Chrissy have created a beautiful optin page and a thank you page that’s designed to help you get affiliate sales from video and graphics-related products.

They even include a follow-up email sequence to help you get more affiliate sales!


I picked up this PLR bundle because I know people will want the AWESOME rolodex of FREE video and marketing graphics resources.

This is a great deal that I highly recommend.

Content Samurai, Animoto Or Lumen5 – Which Online Video Software Is Worth Your Time?

One question I often see online is…

How does Content Samurai stack up against Animoto & Lumen5?

Just to be clear, I don’t believe in bad-mouthing anyone’s products. Animoto and Lumen5 are both very popular products and do a great job of creating videos for social media.

I’ve tested all three tools and all have their strengths and weaknesses.

However, the one thing you need to remember when comparing video creation tools is that…

Likes And Shares Don’t Pay The Bills!

You see there is a lot more to creating a profitable business than just getting likes and shares on social media.

In order to build a profitable business you really need to do 4 things…

  • Generate traffic (Social media videos can be great for this)
  • Build trust with your audience (A great way to do this is to give away useful content for free)
  • Effectively sell your product or service (This is the area most people struggle with)
  • Deliver a great product (Video based courses are a great way to go)

Content Samurai is the only video creation platform available today that helps you create ALL the videos your business needs – social media videos, trust building videos, sales videos and videos for your online courses.

Below is a sample video I created for the special deal Content Samurai is offering. It utilizes the Video Clip Library to help make the video more engaging…

With Content Samurai I was able to create this video in about 20 minutes…

…most of that time was just trying to pick the right pictures and videos from their vast media library!

In addition the the recently added Video Clip Library, Content Samurai also recently introduced their Auto-Voice feature which uses text-to-speech technology to automatically turn your video script into spoken word.

This is a great way to produce quality videos without recording your own voice or putting yourself on camera.

Here’s a quick break down on how the three products compare:


So if all you want to do is generate likes and shares on social media, Animoto and Lumen5 will probably do the job.

But if you want to build a profitable business, Content Samurai is the obvious choice!

I hope that helps clear things up 🙂

And don’t forget, the team behind Content Samurai have put together a very special offer that is available until midnight this Friday…

Here’s what you get…

  • 40% OFF discount on Content Samurai for life (Save $216 per year)

How’d I Miss This? Did You Miss It?

I stumbled upon something today that I can’t believe I’d missed…

Google made a change all the way back in February that can drastically affect how much traffic your site receives.

It has to do with IMAGE SEO and the sites that have caught on to it are seeing huge increases in daily traffic.

And unlike most SEO tactics that take weeks or months to see results, these sites saw the traffic spikes in a matter of days!

Click Here To See The Proof

Great…Image SEO is back…where do I get great images?

Well, there’s tons of “free” image sites out there…right?

But, sometimes the copyright or legalities of those “free” images is in question. Many a blogger, website owner and marketer has been slapped with fines or take down notices for using images they didn’t have rights to use…even though they got them from one of those “free” sites.

That’s why I love that Reshu Singhal has made her private stash of 35,000 HD images available to the public for a super-low one-time price.

In fact, the price is roughly a quarter of what a single image costs on the “big dog” image sites.

Do the math…

35,000 images for a 1/4 of the price of 1 image on the “big dog” image sites = HUGE SAVINGS!

Even better…Reshu’s images come with no limitations on how many clients, sites or instances you use her images…NO LIMITATIONS!

And if that wasn’t enough…

Reshu is throwing in 97 animated icons, 713 transparent PNGs, 231 No background people images, 100 video footage and 341 video assets as a BONUS!


So once you have all of these gorgeous images, how do you actually take advantage of the IMAGE SEO change?

Well, that’s what you get in my exclusive bonus if you pick this up today.

Ok, that’s enough…time to optimize and drive some FREE image traffic…

Unlimited Email Autoresponder

One of the most critical aspects of any digital marketing business is one’s email autoresponder.

Wait, what is an email autoresponder?

An email autoresponder is a system that enables you to collect email addresses, schedule emails and create automated email follow-up sequences (among other things).

It is one of the most important tools in every digital marketer’s tool box.

There are many different email autoresponder services available. But the problem with most of them is they charge monthly fees based on the number of subscribers you have and/or the number of emails you send per month.

In other words, as you grow your email list…your email marketing costs grow as well.

How To Build An Automated Money-Making Machine

Is it truly possible to build a money-making machine that works on autopilot?


In fact, a friend of mine was able to make $160, $417 and $396 all within 24 hr periods and all with FREE traffic.


It can be done with Facebook Chatbots. Wait, what is Chatbot?

A Chatbot is basically a conversation with a robot. A Facebook Chatbot is an automated conversation on Facebook.

A Facebook Chatbot allows you to provide customer service, deliver content, acquire customers and whole lot more…all 24/7 in a seamless and automated way.

Chatbots currently work within Facebook Messenger and are expected to be available in Instagram soon.

So, what does a Chatbot look like?

Imagine calling your local cable company and the first thing your hear is…

“Press 1 for Sales”, “Press 2 for Support” or “Press 0 to speak with the operator”.

Chatbots perform similar functionality, but within Messenger and with a whole lot more flexibility and power.


Who’s using Chatbots?

There are many examples of companies, both big and small, using Chatbots.

Almost as soon as Facebook released Chatbots a bank in Brazil built one that enabled its patrons to perform basic tasks like checking their balance and transferring funds.

Pizza delivery restaurants have built bots that can take orders.

Marketers have started using Chatbots to deliver lead magnets, share content and make sales.

How do you build a Chatbot?

Chatbots, though they may seem complex, are really simple to build…especially with a little bit training.

Remember my friend from above who made hundreds of dollars with FREE traffic using chatbots?

His name is JayKay Dowdall and he’s a Facebook expert, both chatbots and ads.

JayKay created a course detailing exactly how he built those automated money-making machines.

It’s called Destiny and it’s on a super-special discount for the next few days.

Check out my review below…

JayKay’s training is both exceptional quality and an exceptional value.

2 Reasons Why You Should Combine Images With Click-To-Call Marketing

When you get started in Internet Marketing you quickly learn that using images in your marketing increases engagement and conversions.

  • Tweets with images receive 150% more retweets than tweets without images
  • Facebook posts with images see 2.3x more engagement than those without images
  • When information is paired with images, people retain the information longer

But, did you now that using click-to-call increases engagement and conversions as well?

  • Calls have 30-50% conversion rates (clicks average between 1-2%)
  • 61% of mobile searches result in a phone call
  • By 2019, it’s estimated that 162 billion calls to businesses will originate from mobile devices

Can you imagine the power if you could combined the two?

Images + Click-To-Call = Off the Charts Engagement & Conversions

  1. Engagement – images produce more engagement and calls last much longer than website visits
  2. Conversions – both images and phone calls increase conversions

So how can you combine these two powerful marketing methods?

The only way I’ve found so far is with PicLinkr.

PicLinkr enables you to control the clickable images you post to social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Google+, Tumblr and Buffer.

Within the same clickable image post you can have mobile users initiate a phone call, and desktop and tablet users be taken to any website.

Imagine this simple scenario…

Your favorite pizza restaurant posts a delicious-looking pizza with a simple call-to-action of “Hungry yet? Click the pizza to get yours delivered now.”

People viewing this post on mobile phones click the image and a phone call is initiated so they can immediately place their order.

People viewing on desktops and tablets click the image and are taken to the restaurant’s online ordering page.

See the power of combing images with click-to-call?
