First party data is more important than ever before, and chatbots might just be the most effective way to capture it.

 

Travis Stephenson, CEO of Chatmatic, believes that people who hate chatbots (which is quite a few people) are overcomplicating them. In this episode, he encourages people to think about automation in Messenger or IG as a simple way to funnel people through to get the solution they’re looking for. It’s more of a replacement for a landing page—a bridge to get people where they want to go. Don’t try to cram your entire ecosystem into your chatbot, he says, just use it for lead generation and segmentation. 

 

Listen in as he works hard to convince Ralph Burns and Kasim Aslam to embrace chatbots. Spoiler: it’s not a hard sell for Kasim who is the world’s biggest cheerleader for first party data.



IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN:

  • Why you should send cold traffic to FB Messenger or IG instead of a website
  • What kinds of questions to use in an effective assessment sequence
  • A 30 to 60-day chat sequence game plan for any size ad budget
  • How to leverage Instagram’s engaging culture to get the response you want

Marketing, at the end of the day, is the crafting and amplification of a message—and the crafting piece is more important today than it’s ever been.

 

In today’s episode, co-hosts Ralph Burns and Kasim Aslam are joined by the one and only Ryan Deiss, the CEO of Scalable.Co, CEO of DigitalMarketer, and King of the reigning digital marketing community in the galaxy. No one knows marketing like Ryan Deiss. He’s been in the digital marketing game since he was 19—over half of his life—and he’s seen a lot of changes. 

 

Ryan says that the holy grail of marketing and advertising is the ability to craft a message, yell it out to the masses, and have people who didn’t even know they were in the market have their ears perk up. That is the greatest skill that has ever existed and will always work in marketing. From this day forward, the best message wins. Period.

 

Listen in for some marketing and messaging wisdom from the best in the business.

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN:

  • How to build your own community and media brand (and why it’s absolutely crucial)
  • How to get your message out in the face of competition, algorithmic shift, & being priced out.
  • Why Ryan Deiss, the CEO of DigitalMarketer, doesn’t market anymore
  • Details about the perfect event for today’s confused/frustrated CEO/entrepreneur

When it comes to growing your business, there’s one thing more important than traffic and conversion: your mindset.

 

This episode is a little different from most. Think of it as a necessary mental reset. You come to this show to grow your business, but there’s much more to it than just getting traffic. Sometimes it’s not learning the latest, greatest ideas, but taking what we already know and being consistent with that. Maybe you have self-limiting beliefs that are keeping you from getting to the next level, and you need to overcome them.

 

John Assaraf has a thick resume, several bestselling books, has built 5 multi-million dollar companies, and was featured in The Secret. And that’s only scratching the surface. In this value-packed episode, he shares his brilliant and extensive knowledge about our brains, how they work, and how we can use them to their fullest potential to ultimately become more successful.

 

Listen in for some powerful innercises that can literally change your business—and your life.

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN:

  • How to create mental patterns in advance of needing them
  • A quick and simple exercise to deactivate your fear circuit
  • Tips for slowing down and creating a new behavioral process
  • How to match your self-image to your why so you can take inspired action
