We´re Live. Mani starts telling the guys that he´s going on a trip to Thailand and wants to spend as many time as possible there. Charles wants to take this trip, also would like to travel the world, as an experience that´s definitely going to take a lot of time.

Josh Asks the guys for some creative ideas to track facebook campaigns, he finds very limited the data that Facebook provides in order to check everything is in running smoothly or in the other case, find out where he went wrong and fix the problem.

The guys recommend various ways to this, and they all agreed on one thing, they do not trust facebook in this cases, Josh has shown that in a lot of opportunities Facebook has taken credit for the sale on many occasions, this can create flaws and it makes it really difficult to track.

We´re Live. Guys start joking about John possibly having Mono, and Mani tells him that he´s pretty sure that he doesn’t have mono because mono is one most horrible experiences he´s had in his life. Apparently, he´s just tired.

Mani is experimenting to find new stuff for his business to grow. He tells its really difficult to sell to other people audiences, but I can be seen as leverage when working as a team, this is happening with Josh and john.

There are new promos that mani is trying but he´s not getting great results, compares numbers with Charles and gives some advice to boost the numbers. They talk about some software that is actually not helping get the goal. Sometimes experimenting with new stuff its not the best way to get to the finish line. Just need to make sure that the mistake it´s not a 200.000 $ one.

Guys make the statement that show notes on podcast are not the best tool to promo a sale, but nevertheless, it should be done correctly in order to get more people to buy, it doesn’t matter if its 2 or 3 sales, they always sum up.

Mani gives advice to Josh about traffic and the debate starts on when you need organic traffic or not. Josh states that I totally depend on who responded to the traffic, this can make a huge difference in the sale. Tells an anecdote of a sale with 500 subscribers that gave 0 sales.

Little details can make a sale go great to go incredibly bad, Mani and Josh share stories of various sales that went ridiculously high and some that went horrible and getting to the realization that small detail could make everything change with the knowledge that they already have.
