On the way back to Fort Wayne from Illinois, I stopped at this rib joint my mom and I went to a few months ago. To say the line was wrapped around the building would be an understatement. I mean it was zig zagged around the parking lot, but the ribs are so good, I sucked it up.
After making the first loop, I noticed this…
Now, I love me a good ad, so I had to snap a shot. I don’t know if this is a real review, but being a professional in the digital marketing industry, and managing Google ads for a large company with more than 3000 franchise locations, my gut instincts tell me it is and some genius in their marketing department had the brilliant idea to turn it into an ad.
What a great way to turn lemons into lemonade. I mean it doesn’t get any more creative than this. While everyone else are spinning their wheels trying to get hide negative reviews, they and are using this to drive interest in the product; because you know there’s some dare devils out there who love hot stuff and will try it just out of curiosity.
I’m not one of those folks, but if I was (and if I liked cocktail sauce on my shrimp), I most definitely would be getting me a bottle of St. Elmo Steakhouse Shrimp and Cocktail Sauce.
Have you seen any good examples of businesses turning a negative review into a positive like this?
I came up with this quote a couple of days ago, and I thought it was kind of deep. This isn’t normally the kind of content I usually create, but I challenged myself to push myself more in diversifying and putting more content out in 2020, so I’m just warming up a bit by getting an early start. Take a look…
The Moral Of The Story Is
This video was intended to be entertaining, and a little nostalgic, but more importantly it was intended to show the likely outcome of your business as it relates to your competitors; if you are not keeping up with the times. This video is my way of encouraging you to be braver and try new technology that can help you go from point A to point B faster and with less effort and resources.
As we get older and stuck in our ways we begin to resist change and technology may as well be another word for change. It’s scary to abandon a software you’ve always known for another proven winner. But that’s what it takes to stay up-to-date. I can’t help but be thankful that I took to technology; given the fact that I was college age before I got my first personal computer. In fact, I fell in love with computers and Internet technology so much that I abandoned a perfectly good accounting degree to pursue a career in tech.
Technology Eventually Always Wins
Those who embrace tech will always win…eventually.
No matter how much it looks like you are going to cross the finish line first, you will be defeated by the competitor with technology on their side. Are you doing everything you can to make sure that will be you?
Think about your website for a minute. Are you sending people down a rabbit hole of pages and losing money on advertising, or are you guiding them page by page with the dollar amount of their cart value growing with each passing page? If not, you are probably using outdated technology.

I’ve been a fan of Russell Brunson since Conquer Your Niche. I think it’s amazing how far he’s come since those days. His funnel-building software, Click Funnels, is fast becoming a staple in the Internet marketing community, and it’s easy to see why. Before, click funnels, you either had to be a tech geek like me, or have money to hire people like me to build an effective sales funnel. But with Click Funnels, you only need 3 things as Russell Brunson explains in the following video, in which he guides Grant Cardone in building his first ever marketing funnel; from hundreds of miles in the air in his private jet. Take a look for yourself.
The Requirements To Build A Funnel
As you heard, from Russell Brunson, you only need three things to create a marketing funnel:
Product or Service
Before you can even think about creating a funnel, you need a product or service to sell. That’s half the battle because developing a product, or the skills you need to offer a service is the hardest part of the funnel process. So, if you have a product or service already to go, you can relax because you’ve already accomplished the hard part. if you want to make your product or brand grow fast what you have to do is start using this social media channels.
Even if you don’t think you have a product or service yet, you’re only an idea away. Russell Brunson said it best in the cover video he is running on his Facebook page. In it, he makes a profound statement that everyone is an expert in something. You can take that knowledge and package it into a service and boom, you’ve got your service. All it takes is an awareness of your expertise and believing that you are worthy enough as you are to use that knowledge to help people as a service.
A Pitcher/Sales Person
The second requirement to building a funnel is a pitcher or sales person. You need someone to pitch the product or service. I’m going to expand on this and say you need an experienced sales person OR a presentation written by someone with sales or copy writing (salesmanship in print) experience. I feel it is important to make this clarification. You can pitch anything, but that doesn’t guarantee sales.
The pitch must include key features of persuasion in order to produce results, and that requires an experienced sales person; whether it be the presenter him or herself, or from someone behind the camera. In this case, I think it’s safe to say Grant Cardone is the qualified sales person. For you, it may require hiring a professional copywriter, or at least brushing up on your copy writing skills.
Last, but not least, you need a Click Funnels account to put the marketing funnel together. Yes, if you have the skills, you can build it yourself without Click Funnels, but this article assumes you don’t have those abilities or at least not all of them. There are many working pieces involved in building out a funnel, so it is rare to possess them all; unless you have an extensive background in web development.
Click Funnels removes that requirement, with a simple drag and drop platform, that makes it easy to build out elaborate sales/marketing funnels that have all the key elements. Click Funnels boldly claims to be a one-stop platform that consolidates multiple marketing utilities into a single service; allowing you to cancel unnecessary subscriptions and save money!
If you have a product or service that you have been unsuccessfully selling, it’s probably because you don’t have a funnel in place, or you have a break down in your existing funnel. Click Funnels eliminates the mystery in developing an effective marketing funnel, so you can get up and running without error and finally start producing the results you envisioned when you launched your idea.
