We´re Live. The conversation starts on how much Chuck is doing in half a month, he is crunching really good numbers, although he´s been slacking on his major focus which is sponsorship sales, this is great for him because he´s a master at this. John Tells him clearly, that he doesn’t know anybody who can do that amount of sales in so little time. So, Kudos Chuck.

Josh is struggling with a very important decision business-wise, its something that could take him years to work, so he´s looking for advice from the guys. Big Decision from him, apparently he´s going solo with other projects. John is trying to prepare him as much as possible

On the other hand, John needs to make decisions too based on this, Josh did a lot of the day to day business that keeps bringing Revenue on this entrepreneurship.

Thoughts of the week

CHUCK - “The Thing is, as long your delivering value they´ll keep paying you”

We´re Live. The guys talk about about a system to minimize decisions called Flywheel, it works really well. Mani explained clearly, with fewer decisions you add it works better so you need to focus.

Chuck is getting really good on his running, is competing on a Bulldog Mindset Challenge against marathon runners and he´s killing it.

Chuck is planning to charge people to manage other people podcast until they can get all their sponsors and experience ready, which is brilliant. Charges $2500 per podcast a month, until they get their sponsorship. Really easy money for Chuck.

John and Mani give really good advice on this, Chuck is in the stage that he can charge a minimum amount for any of his services, and still get the client no problem. John says his minimum is a $1000, if it's less it is just not worth the time.

Thoughts of the week

John - “If its not a $1000 I don’t even bother to open the email”

We´re Live, Guys talk about the app to record the program, Zoom seems to be working fine with the guys, but there´s a slight audio decrease on quality so bare with us.

Chuck got a serious issue with his Drip account, they stop doing everything he configured to do without telling anything to him, Big rant. Trying out Active campaign, this is important on email marketing, deliverability can never stop.

Podcast business for Chuck has been growing wild, incredibly good in a really short time. Congrats to Chuck!

But the guys are checking the numbers and something seems weird, low traffic cant brings lots of subscribers.

Thoughts of the week

MANI- “400 people a day and 50% conversion rate on the opt-in, something´s wrong”

Aug 6, 2019

We´re Live, The guys start discussing and comparing sales of the same product but with 2 different approaches, direct promo sales and a funnel to a sales pages. Funnels worked way much better and haven’t even finished the sale.

There are different levels of audience or possible buyers to the product, this is important when making a sale, we´ll make things easier to reach goals and even to spot failures.

Mani Shows the guys and even way to split groups with just the names of the subscribers, great brainstorming here.

Thoughts of the week
