If you made it onto Class 1 of Marketing Funnel Mastery earlier this month, you know about the “Sweet Spots” in your funnel.
The first “Sweet Spot” is the traffic coming into the front-end of your funnel. Of course nothing happens without good attention placed here.
You have two choices for beefing up this first stage of your funnel:
- There’s the “content funnel” that is slower but free (blog, social media, etc) and
- The “advertising funnel” that can be fast but has a cost.
Many of the people who really excel (like some of the big names you know in the industry) use the advertising funnel and their secret is to sell a low cost information product at the front-end (immediately upon collecting the lead) to break even on the cost. Then they make their money on the back end as they build their list super fast for free. Others can’t compete with them because they can afford to build their lists quickly… they basically get a free ad budget!
If you tried advertising in the past but with using a ’system’ or selling some one else’s affiliate product on the front-end, that doesn’t work (as I’ve explained in my Marketing Funnel Mastery Class 1).
You will do far better offering your own simple free product upfront immediately after collecting the lead (only use affiliate products in your funnel on the back end as I’ve explained in Marketing Funnel Mastery). Your product can be quite simple and low cost (e-book, video series, etc).
When it comes to learning how to apply this correctly using PPC (Google Adwords) no one can show you how to set up your campaigns better than Mark Hoverson and Jonathan Budd.
Their class fits perfectly into the Marketing Funnel Mastery series I’ve created for you, but theirs is focused entirely on PPC (developing out the first sweet spot area using Google ads– to beef up the traffic on your front-end).
That’s why I encourage you to consider this class.
It may appear ’spendy’ at first–but not at all when you consider what it’s teaching you how to do. This is how you build a big list quickly… this is how the big names in the industry are doing it.
While it’s framed for those of you in the networking industry, I believe it can be highly profitable for any funnel and any product or business model.
Whatever you do, stay focused on develping out those funnels!
Bringing you the best,
Just a quick heads-up everyone on a few announcements–
Class 1 of Marketing Funnel Mastery is now posted in the Vault.
Anyone who was an active Renegade Professional before today can access it.
The same username and password that allows you to log into Renegade Professional will get you into the Vault.
The Vault is where we will post all future Marketing Funnel Mastery classes in the future (there will be 11 more + some possible bonus classes to fill in any gaps I see while reviewing your funnels throughout the course). You’ll find the Vault at www.MarketingMerge.com (button at top of page).
The next class, Class 2, will be posted inside the Vault on June 8th, where I’ll review in detail examples of complete funnels for various industries, including a properly constructed front-end and back-end for networkers, affiliate marketers, traditional businesses coming online, coaches, consultants)–
In Class 2 we’ll also get started on drawing YOUR FUNNEL. I’ll have hand-outs for you to print to assist you in doing that for Class 2.
I highly suggest studying Class 1 thoroughly a few days before Class 2 if you didn’t feel you grasped ALL the models and concepts.
Sharing MFM with Others
Those of you interested in sharing the entire MFM course, we’ll be offering it soon at $997 and will have an affiliate program for those of you who would like to add that somewhere in the back-end of your funnel. More on that after Class 2.
Considering the Ad Funnel (PPC, etc)
Watch the short video I posted last night at www.MarketingMerge.com and consider clicking on the button below the video to opt-in for some amazing free value from Mark Hoverson and Jonathan Budd on how to improve Sweet Spot #1 in your funnel (traffic coming in).
Live Event in June, Portland, OR
I’m really excited to get to see many of you again, and meet some of you for the first time in Portland at the Live Event.
At the event, we’ll be consolidating the entire 12 course series for Marketing Funnel Mastery into the weekend. You’ll be able to walk out of there with a fully drawn out funnel and have me there standing over your shoulder helping you do it!
It will be the most important event you could attend because it’s so “on target” with where you are at RIGHT NOW in your business career.
And… because you’ll be going home with a road map for your business to give you clarity like you’ve never had it before on how to cash-flow, referring to a very specific structure to start on immediately upon arriving home.
Those who attend will no doubt make strides MUCH faster than those who don’t. No doubt about it.
The cost of the event is $195 – Downtown Portland, OR.
June 25th – 27th
It’s from Friday at 3 PM (networking only on Friday) to Sunday evening at 5 PM (Sat and Sun are the hands-on classwork days).
Since Friday is just a ‘meet up’ and networking period, you could show up Saturday and be there by 9 AM and still get access to the full value of what we’ll be covering.
This should be enough information to prepare and make flight arrangements.
We’ll have more details and a registration form available to you next week.
Over 250 people already indicated they are coming… I suspect it will be less but still, it’s going to be quite a showing–bigger than the first Live Event last January!
Hope you can make it! It will make a HUGE difference for you.
Inspired to help you break through this year!
Just a quick heads-up because so much is going on right now– and this IS the biggest news we’ve had in over 2 years.
If you haven’t watched the “Historic Presentation” yet (class 1 of Marketing Funnel Mastery), you can watch it now at http://www.MarketingMerge.com
But you can also get paid for sharing it…
Assuming you agree it’s a life-changing presentation that others need to see!
Since it will no longer be available to the general public after Saturday night, now IS the time to act. After Saturday, it’ll cost $997 to access this (unless you were an ACTIVE Renegade Professional member before Saturday night–because even those who join Renegade Professional after Saturday will have to pay $997–now is the time!)
Here’s how you can earn from my labor this year by telling people about Class 1:
Put your Renegade University or Renegade Professional username in front of MarketingMerge.com so it looks like this:
Refer people there now to watch the “epic” presentation before Saturday at 9 PM PT.
Refer them again on Saturday.
After they watch Class 1 of Marketing Funnel Mastery, many will be compelled to click the button below the presentation that says: Enroll with Renegade Professional.
When they enroll, you’ll get $25.
If you’re an active Renegade Professional yourself, you’ll get $25 for EVERY MONTH they are a member–which will likely be a long time because of all the value they’ll get this year (including all 12 classes of this course).
If you’re NOT an active Renegade Professional, become one. Or, you could remain at Renegade University level and just get a one time payment of $25 (no residuals). You won’t have access to Marketing Funnel Mastery, however, which is a bad idea. I’m assuming if you’re still just at the “Renegade University” level you haven’t watched the presentation yet (Class 1 of Marketing Funnel Mastery) at www.MarketingMerge.com — You should do that now before it’s taken down Saturday because otherwise you’ll have to pay $997 to see it.
Anyone who is a active Renegade Professional before Saturday night at 9 PM PT has access to all 12 classes at no additional cost except their low monthly membership at Professional!
Live Event in Portland on June 26th-27th (plus networking event on 25th)
(This event is the same topic as what we’ll cover in all 12 classes of Marketing Funnel Mastery, but with me right there helping you do it!)…
We have 125 currently registered to attend the live event in Portland, and growing by the hour!
Please don’t plan on attending unless you’ve watched Class 1 of Marketing Funnel Mastery (either you attended the live event on Wednesday, or you watched or will soon watch the re-recording at www.MarketingMerge.com).
At the Portland event, I’ll be helping you create a clearly drawn-out funnel detailing how you’ll generate your leads and cash-flow this is unique to you, your strengths and business model. Powerful stuff.
Email Lisa@marketingmerge.com with “Live Event” in the subject by Saturday night if you plan to attend–it is free to all who registered for the Wednesday Webinar as long as you email her before Saturday night at 9 PM PT.
OK, that’s all for now!
If you made it on last night’s Webinar time, you know what happened.
If you tried to make it on and couldn’t that was because it maxed out at 1000 participants and it got a little wild.
Maxing out a Live Webinar was my goal.
But I had no idea how much TROUBLE it would cause!
It totally bugged out the system.
Pop-up messages kept coming up on my screen every few seconds saying what I didn’t need repeated!
One pop-up after another said, “You have Exceeded 1001 participants and someone is trying to join. Please delete a participant to allow them access.”
These pop up messages interferred with my presentation and caused many of you to not see some of my early slides.
We kept going. Amazingly, 950 people stayed through the entire webinar (2 hours)… and THAT is unusual… and very kewl. In the end, we had a rally and judging by the incredible feedback my message was delivered.
But… instead of having to do massive editing to create a good recording of the event, I’ve decided to re-record it ALL.
This will delay us having a recording of this historic event posted at MarketingMerge.com as we had planned for early Thursday morning.
Instead, it will be more like late Thursday. I’ll let you know once it is up.
I guess maxing out a webinar with 1000 attendees isn’t all its cracked up to be. But… at the same time, it was fun!
I truly believe “Marketing Funnel Mastery” will revolutionize the entire industry. If you were one of the 1000 who attended I think you agree.
I’ll let you know when the re-make is available. The first class is free for everyone, but only until Saturday evening. So look for your email. This will be a game changer for you. Just ask one of the 1000 people who made it on.
I’ll let you know when it’s up (intention is late in day Thursday),
I believe in YOU.
Whether you think that’s ‘tacky’ or not.
I will always believe in YOU.
Believe in others as I believe in YOU, starting with believing in yourself… and success will follow.
Perhaps more than anything I have ever shared, THIS is the message.
- Mike Klingler
Thought some of you might enjoy this…
Particularly those of you who have met with some challenges along the way of your ‘dream acheiving’
Saturday & Sunday, June 26th and 27th
(And for those who can make it a day earlier we’ll be networking and
connecting on Friday the 25th as well, from 3 PM until late in the
Topic: Increase your cash-flow and stop giving so much time and value
I’ll show you how to see the pattern for cash-flowing with the same
clarity I see it with a blog, website, PPC, whatever… whether you’re
building a networking business, information / training business,
affiliate business… or a traditional business… doesn’t matter.
If you’re a coach or consultant you need this more than anyone because
you give so much time away you’ve got to leverage that or you can’t
keep it up!
This is the most important event for all of you this year.
This will be nothing like the last event… this one will be packed
with cash-flowing insights. I’ll be passing out X-ray glasses that
allows you to see the cash-flowing pattern in what you’re doing.
Yes, this is the same stuff we’re going over in the upcoming Webinar
series, but there is NOTHING LIKE getting it up close and personal.
I will be very available to everyone at this event–at the breaks– at
the BBQ at the penthouse–at the networking event on Friday.
Don’t miss it. That would be silly.
If you registered for next Wednesday’s Webinar, you have a free ticket
to the entire weekend!!!
Email email@example.com with the subject: “Coming to Live
Event” if you plan to attend or if you have questions.
We’ll have a registration link and more details for those who send an
email later next week.
See you there!
It’s time to pick those “puzzles pieces” off the floor.
We’re going to clean up that mess you’re calling a business
It’s time to take what you’ve been doing and organize it, bring clarity to it, create a structure….
So it cash-flows.
It may sound like work and it is…
It’s your business. It’s your life.
Make it count.
One thing’s for sure, bringing clarity and structure to your online “attraction marketing” efforts is way easier than being all over the place.
You’ve likely heard about my Webinar next week on “Mastering Your Marketing Funnel.”
I can assure you it’ll be the most impacting webinar you’ve ever attended.
- It’s for networkers
- It’s for Affiliate marketers
- It’s for those turning a passion into income
- It’s for those using a blog, website, social media or PPC
- It’s for smart beginners & those already making good money
And the first one in the series is free.
It’s the first in a 12-course series on how to take what you’ve learned from all the sources around you… and piece things together so it CAN pay more.
This Webinar frames things in a new way…
The 12 courses will be spread out over 3.5 weeks so you can fit it into your life.
It will supplement the other training you’re doing (or that you study next).
I know what’s out there…
I personally know most of the trainers you learn from.
Many of them are great!
But you’ve been learning from a lot of different sources (picking up different pieces)…
No one has taught you how to piece everything together so that it fits into a well organized structure that serves your personality and needs, and still cash-flows correctly.
I’m going to help you get clarity.
How To Attend All 12 Webinars & Avoid the $997 Cost
While the first webinar next Wednesday is free for all, access to all 12 courses in the series will cost most people $997.
But if you’re presently part of our active Renegade Professional community, or join Renegade Professional now, you will avoid the $997 cost of the most important series I have ever done.
People who join the community after this will still have to pay the $997.
So if you’ve been on the fence about joining Professional, now is the time to join.
** (It’s NOT just for Networkers anymore… it’s for anyone building a list & presence online).
Renegade Professional Continues to Create Leaders!
Since our start 2.5 years ago, thousands of students have grown into success stories of their own. Many have become trainers within the community themselves!
By joining Renegade Professional now, you’ll have access to all of what we’ve always offered, PLUS the 12 course series I’m dedicated to all year, “Marketing Funnel Mastery.”
I doubt you could ever find more value for any cost, let alone something so inexpensive. Active Renegade Professionals only pay $49.95 per month.

P.S. Share this news with business partners you care about.
This in preparation for the Marketing Funnel Mastery webinar of May 12th…
Regardless of what you’re doing (or trying to do) to generate leads & sales, it falls into one of two categories….
1. The Content Model – This focuses more on using a blog or website, social media, syndication, SEO & online interaction to generate leads and sales. It’s very low cost… so much so people claim it’s practically free.
2. The Advertising Model – Of course, this model has a cost, such as when using Google PPC or other advertising, along with a lead capture & sales page with lots of need for tracking. The goal here is to set things up so you make more than you spend immediately.
Getting clarity on which model (#1 or #2) you’re going to focus on FIRST is the fastest path to success online.
I’m noticing a lot of people aren’t clear about how to set up a proper funnel–they just have vague ideas–so this is going to be my focus in training for a while.
Are you going to build the 1st model (like Katie Freiling & myself), or the 2nd model (like Ann Sieg, Mark Hoverson and Mike Dillard).
Some are incorporating both–Mike Dillard is an excellent example of that now with his Better Networker. But he got his million dollar start mainly with the 2nd model, as did most of the people he taught.
There’s just no way around it, you need to know what you’re trying to do… and be 100% clear about it. Are you going after #1 or #2? Then you can design a well-crafted ‘marketing funnel’ to succeed big. You can maximize and optimize by seeing the gaps and filling them in.
In the webinar on May 12th I’m going to help you get really clear about these two models… and help you choose which one is best for you based on your current circumstances, preferences and strengths.
I’ll also send you a video training before the Webinar later this week to get you thinking about some of these things beforehand.
I’ll continue teaching you model #1, but I’m also going to introduce you soon to Mark Hoverson who has aced the #2 model with Google PPC. He created a PPC training with Jonathan Budd that’s like no other. Their training has helped a lot of people reach big six figure levels really quickly, and that’s why I’m going to introduce you to him.
Whichever model you choose, #1 or #2, I’m going to be teaching you through Marketing Funnel Mastery how to put the pieces together so that whatever you choose to do, and whatever resources or tools you choose to use, you know how to make it cash-flow.
If you haven’t registered for our May 12th webinar, you can do that here.
There’s already 2000+ registered and only 1000 can fit, but I’ve learned only about half who register attend so you can still easily get a seat if you show up early. This will be my best webinar yet getting you clear on all of this stuff… to fit the pieces together and choose the right approach for you.
Oh, don’t forget–
Look for a short but clearly outlined training video later this week to get you started.
Partners in success!
P.S. By the way, some people incorporate both model #1 and #2 into their business, and that can be the most lethal combination of all (’lethal’ in a good way!).
After 4.2 million generated using the first model (content model), I am now moving into model #2 and will still continue with #1.
I’ll be inviting you to follow my journey as I work PPC and advertising into my present social media strategy.
Man, there’s a lot going on in the industry right now.
It’s unbelievable. I’ve been studying where people are at. Watching, listening.
It’s inspiring to see so many of you on the cusp of becoming leaders (many of you already have).
When I was at the Live Event in Vegas nine days ago (sharing the stage with Ann Sieg, Mark Hoverson, Brian Finale, and Aaron Rashkin)–I was really intrigued by the kind of questions people were asking me at the breaks.
I must have talked to over 100 people individually. I love learning what everyone needs.
It confirmed what I anticipated after the January event in Portland with Ann Sieg & the Renegade community.
It’s time to tell you the rest of the story, part 2.
The part that every leader I’ve talked to about this, over the last 2 years, said you weren’t ready for. Or at least… that there weren’t ENOUGH people ready for.
But that’s not the case any more.
When I started Renegade University (and what later become Professional) 2.5 years ago, it was a whole different ball game. We started helping Smart Beginners & Renegade Professional will continue to do it.
But now there are thousands of people who exemplify the attraction marketer’s crede!
So I’m going to start a whole new ongoing series and do this all over again.
By ‘do this over again’ I mean put myself out there just like I used to, but teach everything I learned over the last 2 years to those specifically on the cusp of breakthroughs!
