Helping Business Owners Be Seen - Joe Fier & Matt Wolfe - FHR #283
Why Dave Decided to talk to Joe and Matt: Joe Fier & Matt Wolfe are the co-founders of Evergreen Profits and absolutely love showing people how simple it really is to get seen online in competitive industries. They share their system of driving targeted traffic that turns into leads and sales to business owners who want to scale (but have failed in the past). They aren't an agency (they're pretty much the anti-agency). Having generated over $100 million for themselves and their clients, Matt and Joe pride themselves on helping other business owners who want to be seen, and give great advice on affiliate marketing strategies and audience growth systems. Tips and Tricks for You and Your Business: Traffic strategies (2:30) SEO strategies (4:10) Creating content around affiliate offers (7:30) Using ManyChat as live chat (12:40) Funnel Stacking (15:50) Quotable Moments: "People want to be talked to as a human, not an automated bot" Tools: Yoast SEO EvergreenProfits.com/funnelhacker Links:FunnelHackerRadio.com FunnelHackerRadio.com/freetrial FunnelHackerRadio.com/dreamcar ---Transcript--- Speaker 1: 00:00 Welcome to funnel hacker radio podcast, where we go behind the scenes and uncover the tactics and strategies top entrepreneurs are using to make more sales, dominate their markets, and how you can get those same results. Here's your host, Dave Woodward. Well everybody. Welcome back to funnel hack Speaker 2: 00:18 radio. I'm your host, Dave Woodward. You guys are in for a treat today. I have opted to have two amazing podcast host as well as guys who are absolutely crushing it. So let me know just to you guys, Joe and Matt Wolfe. What can the show guys? Hey man, how you doing? Thanks for having us on. I'm so happy to have you guys. So these guys are the cohost of hustle and Flowchart, which is an amazing, amazing a podcast. They've got cool, cool guys on there. I just know she had Tom Breeze on a couple of other guys. I've noticed obviously Billie Jean and the whole list. I'm like, Gosh, these events. Read them. Know a lot of these guys. Good Friends of mine. So it's a mucks. The most important thing that I want to make sure those guys who are listening. The reason I wanted to have Joel and Matt on today is these guys are almost anti agency and I want to kind of address why would, why we bring up anti agencies. Speaker 2: 01:06 The main specialty they really have is driving massive amounts of content. Also a of traffic, I'm sorry, using ads and content, podcasts being one of those content pieces, but one of the really cool things these days right now is they have this weird like super power of being able to be seen everywhere, but by the right people. Everyone these days talks about being seen everywhere. It really doesn't matter if you've seen everywhere, if no one cares about you, so we're going to talk today about is how to get seen everywhere by the right people, how to do affiliate marketing the right way, how to actually use ads, content traffic, so hold on tight guys. It's gonna be a fun podcast and super excited at both you guys on the show. This is our favorite topic is just kind of opening up some eyeballs to how traffic can actually be done effectively and not extensively and it's a super easy. Speaker 2: 01:53 Once you get that foundation layer, well do I know that's one of the biggest things most people struggle with is this feels like to do traffic. I got to spend thousands and thousands of dollars. I never know which dollar really works and which one doesn't. It's kind of proverbial going back to the old branding days and you know, 50 percent is going to work. I just don't know which 50 percent it actually is. So with that, let's kind of dive right in guys. So tell me what, where do we start? How does, where do you want to take this thing? All right, so you know, probably the best way to approach this. I'll kind of give a quick breakdown of our traffic strategy and then you can kind of pick it apart if you want and we'll just dive deeper and deeper into it. So the way we drive traffic, is it sort of a combo of Google ads, Seo and facebook ads? Speaker 2: 02:32 Um, so what we'll do is we'll create a piece of content around the problem that our product solves. So a blog post on our wordpress blog, we'll create a piece of content and we'll go to google and we'll find what people are searching for keywords around the content that our problem solves. We're not trying to sell them on that first touch. So for example, one of the examples I gave on a previous podcast was, um, let's say you have a home remedy for, okay. Um, somebody goes to Google and says a in, how do I cure heartburn at home? Right? Well, that person is looking for a solution to their problem. You put content in front of them with some tips on home remedies for heartburn. Now that they've used that content, they essentially raised their hand and said, look, we've got this issue. That's how we know that this problem is interested now, or this person is interested in what we have to offer. Speaker 2: 03:23 Now what we're gonna do is we're going to retarget the heck out of them everywhere. So they're gonna start seeing our ads to our product offering on facebook, on Google display network, on youtube ads onto Bula. Uh, you name it. We've probably experimenting with retargeting on those places, so the key ideas use google search ads so that people are searching for the problems that they have, put content in front of them related to that problem and then just retarget them everywhere once they viewed that piece of content. So that's the sort of game plan in a nutshell that, that we operate under and we do it with both our own products and with affiliate products Speaker 3: 03:56 in our podcast and our podcast. So I'm really curious because Seo is one of the things I just suck at. I've never done anything. You get this thing out. The whole idea as far as google content scares me. It's how do you, how do you really do this thing effectively without having to outsource all of it or do you outsource at all? So there's a combo. We do outsource a little bit. We actually hired some interns and have have a little team as well. We're lean and mean, so we're not a big company so. But it appears that we have this massive budget, which is really cool. It's only being shown to the right people. All these ads, so for Seo, we always use a yoast seo plugin for wordpress sites, so just the free version can do a lot for you if you just turn the all the lights inside the plugin green. I mean that's a good first step. I mean everyone should be doing this and we didn't focus on that for a very long time. We did that for about two months with all the previous existing posts and now what do you know? Organic traffic is the number one player for us. That's how we get most of our traffic. So the retargeting Seo while ast, is that right? Why O a s t a r y s t, Speaker 2: 05:05 yeah, and if you're not familiar with that plugin and essentially what you do is you install it and then we write a new blog post. It says what keyword you're trying to rank for. You plug in that keyword and then we'll give you a whole bunch of suggestions of how to optimize that post so that it ranks for that keyword. So you just kind of follow the list. If you follow the list, there's a little light that starts out red saying you're not optimized. If you follow the list, the light turns green and you're now on Speaker 3: 05:26 page optimized for Seo tools. I'd love to see. Yeah, I mean it's great for existing content. We're all sitting on a bunch of it, so let's optimize that and then you can go further with some new keywords. So how you guys didn't use that on your podcast Speaker 2: 05:42 and cast. We specifically try to rank for our guest's name. That's kind of our big game plan with the podcast is anybody who comes on our show, we want to be on page one for that guest's name. We want our episode with them to be on page one so people will search for, let's say had dave Woodward on our show. They searched Dave Woodward. We're ranked number three probably below your site and you know, maybe click funnels and some of the stuff you're involved in, but ideally we show up on page one as, um, an interview with you that people are interested in. They click into our blog, they click deeper into our blog, defined other, you know, other things, and then based on what they look at on our blog, we then retarget them with offers. Awesome. So you're taking that podcast, make a transcript out of it as a blog article, taking that blog article using seo yoast and other tools to then rank for that Speaker 3: 06:29 guess. Yeah, exactly. And we see it as a big segmentation tool. Any piece of content, no matter what you're producing, we just, she's podcast. It's easy for us. We have a system and it's multipurpose, you know, we can go across the web and upload a transcript to things like a medium, you know, or use that on medium.com. You can make them into slideshare, pdfs and then get traffic that way. So we're big into repurposing, but bringing it into our, bringing people into our ecosystem so we can let those retargeting pixels do their work. Speaker 2: 06:58 Yeah, I love it. Well, I'm really curious on the affiliate side of things because this is one of the things that people are always bugging me about. You know, at first obviously you click phones, has our dream car award winning thing, so you get 40 percent recurring commission plus if you get to a hundred accounts on a monthly basis, you get $500 a month for your car twitter accounts, you get a thousand. So we've always got people saying, how do I get a car, how do I get a car, how do I get this money? And one of the things people I struggle with trying to help people understand is there's more to it than just taking our current links and blasted him everywhere. You are just magical at really creating content around affiliate offers. I want to spend some time on that. Sure. Speaker 3: 07:37 Sounds good. Um, yeah, so we start with I guess our approach. We'll start there as we like to work with tools that we love and ones that we use in our own business so we can put our knowledge, our experience behind all the content that we create around that tool. So, uh, yeah, we'll, we'll usually also work with folks that we kind of know who probably have act like better the relationships we have with that affiliate offer, let's just say that helps the entire thing. So we'll start with creating content and we'll select probably the top five common objections and then from there, you know, that's where we can start pointing ads on Google for instance. And then, um, that's more or less our first touch from Google ads to a piece of content. And then from there we have pixels for Google, facebook, youtube, there's, I mean there's all sorts of different platforms you can retarget on. That's where we call it our cleanup crew. More or less, you didn't buy on the first touch. There's always a call to action inside the value giving a blog post there. But we know that it's gonna take multiple touches. So we feed the Pixel. That's what the guys like. Vince Reed, Billie Jean, all those guys, you mentioned a Tom Breeze, they're all big on feeding the pixel. I think that's the big thing. People have to get over it. Speaker 2: 08:50 Don't go what that means because we hear that term feed the pigs all the time, but I don't people really understand what feed the pixel really needs. Yeah. So if you want to do retargeting, which is, you know, you, someone lands on your website once and now they're cookie cookie drops onto their browser. That's the pixel that you would grab from a facebook or Google ad platform. Uh, so that would be the pixel we're talking about there. And for retargeting you can build this audience. So the Pixel is essentially creating this new audience of visitors who are engaging with your content. So basically the idea is you put a piece of content in front of people, your pixels on there, anybody who views this piece of content is going to see our other ads. So we want to get as many eyeballs on this piece of content as possible so that more people see our other ads. Speaker 2: 09:37 So that's essentially what feeding the pixel is so that our ads are being retargeted all over the place to more and more and more people. I love it. Super Cool. And I guess one little wrap a bow on that, a lot of folks try to get super targeted on, uh, the, you know, the platforms she feed the pixel, you're leveraging their algorithms and the, yeah, the rocket scientists that work at Google and facebook, let's leverage what they've done really well, feed that Pixel and let them do the hard work. Yeah, we'll follow up when it comes to advertising. We've actually kind of gotten in the habit of selecting less and less options inside of facebook and Google and letting facebook and Google optimize for us. So you know, we're going to start with some, some very broad like interest targets on facebook, you know, we may start with like digital marketing or something like that which has $20 million fans, but it's still pretty broad and then we won't set any other targeting and if you let it run for like a week or two overtime, facebook's going to start to figure out which of these people are converting and which aren't. Speaker 2: 10:35 And they're going to start putting more of the right people in front of your ads. So I love that idea. That is super cool, so on the affiliate side, because affiliate marketing is one of the most can be a struggle for a lot of people because they have so many other people competing for the same type of words. Everything else. What are some of the key things you guys are doing? I know you guys, first of all said you take is find out what are the five objections or things about what else? I think there's a lot of ways with affiliate marketing that we go probably way above what most people are willing to do, which is why we've been so successful at it. Um, you know, real quick, I want to make sure we talked about that kind of success because you guys are just your normal affiliate marketers who are making a couple hundred thousand 100 bucks, a thousand bucks or even 100,000. Speaker 2: 11:18 You guys are like seven figure affiliate award winning marketer. I mean, you guys totally get this thing right now. Eighty percent of our business affiliate marketing is our main income stream. We do sell courses and things, but affiliate marketing is our main revenue stream. Um, if you want to learn how we're doing it, that's what we have the courses for, but we make enough money doing what we do. So, um, so, so as far as affiliate marketing goes, there's so many things that we'll do. So, a, we always like to create a landing page so we're never going to send straight to our clickfunnels affiliate link. We're going to send them to some sort of a piece of content that maybe compares click funnels to other alternatives that are there, that explains the various ways we're using click funnels in our business, things like that. We're going to create a lot of content around click funnels and why you should want click funnels. Speaker 2: 12:01 So that's where we're going to drive our Google ad traffic to. Um, another thing that we do is on our landing pages, we always put a little mini chat. I'm not sure if you're familiar with mini chat, but a little of course chat Bot that basically will allow people to communicate with you over facebook messenger. We put that on all of our, all of our pages everywhere across the Internet. So if somebody's interested in affiliate product and they have a question, they get access to me or joe or one of our two team members that are actually in mini chat fielding questions. So we'll actually get into mini chat and close sales over mini chat of products that we don't even own. Um, now I'm want to stop you there because this is one of the things that people screw things up with many chat is they've had this idea as far as it set it and forget it type of approach. Speaker 2: 12:44 You guys are actually, that's one of the things I love about what you guys do. You guys actually using mini chat as live chat, which is something most people don't even consider. It's like, you know, I don't want to do that. I'm just going to set it up and let it run and whatever happens happens. So yeah, we used to use, which was kind of the same idea, a little button thing that said, hey, do you have any questions? They message us and then we'd go into the dark app and respond to people when the mini chat opened up the version where you can do the, essentially the same thing, but it goes to facebook messenger. We got rid of our can just put that on there instead. But yeah, I mean the first two messages are actual automated messages. Like, Hey, what do you need help with, you know, select one of these options that applies. They click one, maybe there's a link to like an Faq or a video or something. And then beyond that a real person jumps in and actually communicates. Speaker 3: 13:32 And we have a whole system. So this is, I'm happy to bring this up because no one is doing this, not even for their own products. And we've had a, we just actually spoke to Mike mcalary of profit first and he bought a product from us and uh, and he noted he was like, you do better customer service than the actual product owners do affiliates doing this because of the follow up. And people want to be talked to like a human, not an automated Bot. People mainly think it's about talking to them. I'm like, no, no, no, no. This is joe here. This is Matt and I'll even do. We'll sometimes do loom videos where it's a customized screen capture maybe a minute or 200 percent of the time. Ninety eight percent of the time people are like, holy crap, you just took that time for me. Like personalized and by then you're pretty much close. They're telling everybody else about their experience. So it's super cool. Not very many chats. Amazing. You can do a lot, but flipping it to be pushed. Personalized and humanlike I think is the key. Um, so deeper down the, the affiliate funnel, Speaker 2: 14:36 no, the list around every single product we promote. So we have a list of people that are interested in click funnels. We have a list of people that are interested in thrivecart and other tool. We promote pushcrew yeah, we do push crew notification. So when, whenever we want do a promotion, we send it out to our entire push crew lists. Um, I don't know. We actually have an affiliate marketing course. It's got 120 different ways to promote products as an affiliate and if you just did them all, I mean there's no reason you can't make six figures a month doing it. Okay, so stop right there and tell people where they can get that because I've known them. People are going to go crazy. So how do they actually get that course? So that would be the best places to go to evergreen profits.com/funnel hacker. Speaker 2: 15:16 So you'll get a book actually, it's a little free book for the coastlines that all this traffic stuff and you'll have an opportunity to see the affiliate course and it's a piece of. It's a piece of a bigger funnel. We'll say that, which again, I want to make sure people understand. I think it's one thing I love about what you guys do is this I refer to is funnel stacking where they come in one funnel and they literally get stacked and layered and that layering is what allowed you guys to really crush seven figures as affiliates. Which is phenomenal. And I think too often people think that I'm going to create one funnel and it's just going to take care of everything for me. So explain kind of how your, how your funnel stacks work. Yeah. So everything is content based and we love to, you know, start with content and interest. Speaker 2: 15:58 Kind of like what Matt was lining out with, uh, you know, we'll have either topics around a specific product or maybe it's podcast and our case and we use that content to segment folks into these different funnels. So these are all different followup sequences based off of the type of content they just consumed. So they'll have, will have an email follow up sequence. Pushcrew has its own kind of marketing, a mini chat has tags as well, so we have the opera and then obviously have the pixels, the different ad networks that are going to show irrelevant affiliate offer or maybe it's additional training and other podcasts we want people to listen to. So that's the idea is using content to kind of leverage where we want to take them. We're personally choosing to go based off of the content. And then as far as far as like the actual funnel elements, you know, I don't want to say this is easy to do, you know, it's kind of a simple concept, but it's not easy to set up everything we do. Speaker 2: 16:53 So one of the things we do is we actually have a split test running all the time on all of our pages. So even when we're promoting affiliate products, let's say we have a landing page that promotes click funnels, I'm going to have two variations of my headline on that page going at any given time or two variations of our video explaining why you should get click funnels or two variations of the button. There is always, always 100 percent of the time I split tests running on both our landing pages and our various ads that we're running. So we're just optimizing, optimizing, optimizing. And I've just, I'm never satisfied. I've got some ads in Google where we're getting percent click through rates on them and I'm still trying to optimize them up into better click through rates. So that's awesome. Matt, go ahead. I was curious as far as when you're doing a split test, how, how often are you changing it? Speaker 2: 17:39 Because the problem I run across people that say I'm going to split test. I do, they set it and they forget about it. It's like dude, you're not doing anything with that. So split testing, so use vwo visual website optimizer to run our split tests and I actually I check in on them once a week, but it really depends on the amount of traffic going to a landing page. Some of our offers get a lot more traffic than others. You know, we've got paged at some pages that will get up, you know, a thousand visits a day on them. So those ones I can legitimately optimize on a once a week basis. Some of them, you know, they'll get a thousand visitors a month so I'm actually, I'm checking on them once a week but I'm actually only going in and making a new variation once. I feel like I've got enough data to really justify a new variation. Speaker 2: 18:20 So you know, so man, do you feel like a thousand is enough? Is that Kinda the magic number? It has got to be technically, I think if you were to talk to like a real hardcore conversion rate optimization guy, he would say that's not enough. Um, for me it's been working. It's been working. We're seeing incremental growth every month. So I'm, you know, I'm happy with the results we're getting out of it. That's the key thing that we had the Aha this year is I think as a business coach and said, okay, look at the little indicators that you have in your business, like conversion rate, uh, you know, traffic numbers, all of that. If you can increase those little bits, that little bits every week, I mean, just look at the compounded effort over 12 months and then look at where you're going to be over that span of time. Speaker 2: 19:00 You will, I mean conservative things about tripling your revenue. Now, you know, if you're just slowly doing just that and then optimizing your ads as well in the same way. And it's not rocket science, you just have to have a really solid offer or multiple offers. And then just do these little small, monotonous tweaks that, you know, it's not starting something from scratch, but as entrepreneurs love doing, staying in your lane and going, oh yeah, that's been a big Aha for us is just the small incremental improvements week over week, over week, look at it over six months. And you went, wow, how did I get from there to here? So how do you guys deal with the whole shiny object syndrome? Because you guys are getting a ton of offers in front of you guys all the time. Speaker 2: 19:41 The best people to ask on that. Matt had been in business together for like 12 years now, which is crazy. He's like my other brother I never had. So we have a similar brain. It's different, but this year I honestly, we, we hired a coach and he told us to stick with the plan for like a year minimum. And that's where I went into the optimizations. That's where we went into a very deliberate mood on what we're doing. Each week. We've even kind of cut down our work time because of just personal things we want to do rather than sitting behind a screen. So we'll, I'll say, I'll say the times, the most difficult thing that gives us shiny objects syndrome is we have a podcast as well, so over the last year and a half since we started this show, we've interviewed 112 people now and every single person has good ideas, so that's where our tiny object syndrome comes into play is we'll get off an episode with somebody and go test that and then like we'll talk to, you know, one of our mentors and they'll be like, no, stay the course, you know, verbally slap us. Speaker 2: 20:40 A mentor works getting super clear on what we're doing now. And then what's the, what's the infinity project? James Schramko calls it like this thing and you're always kind of working on what your team is and that's worked for us. Yeah, no, I love Schramko's infinity project. It's a great, great analogy. He thinks he's a great guy. Yeah. So I'm really kind of curious as far as I'm sitting here going massive shiny object syndrome with a ton of affiliate stuff and going, okay, so evergreen.com four slash funnel hacker. I got to see who's going to go ahead and actually go through all 120 of those and put those in place so we can do. Let us know. We'll give you something cool. If you do that and prove that you've done them all, it'll be good. Yeah, I mean that's. That's the cool thing about affiliate marketing I guess that we want to. Speaker 2: 21:29 It's a great bolt on. You don't have to just do affiliate marketing. Do you have a solid offer that you feel like you're still leaving some things out that you can then leverage someone else's offer product or service or even brokering a deal? We've done so many of those and that's the thing. It all compiles up into more profits based off of what you're already doing. So bolt on. I think that's a good little like, oh, that's it. One of the things you guys made mentioned, which I don't hear too many people talking about these days and that's Taboola. Do you wanna explain what to Bula is and how you guys were using it. So taboola is what's called a native advertising platform and essentially what it is is if you ever go to some of these bigger sites like CNN or Msnbc site, you read some news and you scroll down to the bottom of the news site, it'll say you know, also recommended and there'll be some little ads and usually they're very like click baity looking ads with the image. Speaker 2: 22:21 You can't really make out what they're doing in the image. And they're like, you know, wait until you see what this guy did after he ate a pickle or whatever. And you're like, oh, I need to click on this. What is this? Right? So you see these on these big platforms, these new sites, and it's down at the bottom and they call it native advertising because it looks like it's native to the site. It looks like, like you're clicking on more internal content on the site, but when you click to it, it's, you know, an external site and the extent of what we've really experimented with is just purely retargeting because the idea being if they view a piece of content, we want them to see us in as many places as we can possibly put ourselves. So there'll be a piece of content. Maybe the content is around, you know, click funnels, here's all the way we use click funnels and now all of a sudden they're seeing our ads to our landing page about clickfunnels. Speaker 2: 23:08 They'll see them at the bottom of an MSNBC page. They'll go to somebody's blog, they'll see it on Google display network, on the sidebar banner. They go to facebook, it will be in their feet. You know, it's just part of being everywhere. And so our budget for it isn't very big. We don't get just a ton of impressions on that. We might spend $7 in a month on it because it's a very low volume play, but it's part of that branding thing is part of that psychological thing. We're holy crap, I'm seeing these guys everywhere and that's what it does for us at least. I love that. A two bullets. One of the things we're starting to play around with ourselves. So I, again, I haven't heard too many people playing around with it says, cool, you guys are using it. Yeah. Yeah. And it, it's, it's great for feeding the Pixel to um, you know, we tried to put some of our content, the same kind of content that if somebody searched google, they would see those blog posts. We tried to put that in some of the native ad platform stuff and put some like click baity links just to feed the pixel. And what we noticed was the time on site from those people was like three seconds long. And we're like, okay, these people are clearly not spending the time required to be a good prospect. So we actually cut out all cold traffic from taboola and just made it purely a retargeting play for us. But their dive back into it in the future, I'm sure we will. That's the key. Speaker 3: 24:20 Just be on his men. If you have, you know, the access to all these platforms and can just do retargeting, why wouldn't you just place that Pixel on your site and let it do its work? Keep an eye on the budgets, you know, make sure you're not spending a boatload of money but, but the branding play, you know, it's what five to seven touches is the average. They always say, for someone to make a conversion, well might as well do it this way. That's how we choose it. Speaker 2: 24:41 And I mean with the, with the risk of sounding like I'm kissing butt a little bit, something like click funnels makes it really easy because once you get something one of these funnels that works really well, there's a little button that says, clone your press that button and you do it all over again. Wonder how we do that landing page, that evergreen product. I love it. So obviously one of the things you guys are magicians ad is making sure that you're seen by everywhere, but most importantly by the right people everywhere. And I appreciate you guys spending time with the state as we kind of get close to wrapping things up here. Joe, Matt, anything else you guys want to leave with our audience? I think Speaker 3: 25:16 the big thing is, is just the Aha is, is think about how you can bring all these platforms and let them work together. A lot of folks try to keep things. I'm a facebook guy, I'm a google guy. Well, why not be everything you know, and focus on your input where, where, where's the best input they could bring those qualified eyeballs to your ecosystem. And then, you know, let the magic happen with the platforms. Speaker 2: 25:39 That's the big thing. I mean, you pretty much covered it. Um, you know, and, and we do the same thing with the podcast. We didn't really dive too deep into it, but with the podcasts, um, you know, that's the podcast could be huge. If anybody who's thinking about doing a podcast, I'm always blown away with the excuses. People don't, they give for not having a podcast because it's probably been the most impactful thing we've ever done in our business. But you can do what we call our invisible podcast funnel where essentially people listen to an episode and then once they listened to an episode of, let's say we had a, a creator of a software product on the podcast, we can interview that person than anybody who listened to that interview. All the sudden we can now retarget them with that person's. So it's just a real quick way to use and monetize a podcast through, you know, that that's essentially them raising their hand and saying, I'm interested in this because they just spent an hour with me, Joe and the creator of the product. Speaker 2: 26:34 They're going to start seeing everywhere now. So take for example, you guys had me on, if you have me on your podcast, you didn't win target click funnels because we'd be talking about click funnels and everything else. And then you're going to have your affiliate link type to see all those ads that we send them to a landing page. We wouldn't, we'd never really linked straight to an affiliate link. We would send them to a landing page. That way we have the opportunity to, to, um, capture him on an email list and give some reasons why you should get it through our link and maybe offer up some bonuses and things like that. Uh, but yeah, that's exactly what we do. We would put our landing page for clickfunnels in front of anybody who listened to our episode together. Yep. Oh, such a cool idea. Speaker 2: 27:12 We should probably do that. I'll probably do that. That sounds fun. Anything else guys? Again, thanks so much. Yeah, just everybody. Evergreen profits.com/funnel hacker. You can go down the rabbit hole and learn a little deeper and that's going to get something. This book right here, it's called, um, the evergreen traffic playbook. That's the book that will give away for free. We'll give you a free digital copy email@example.com slash funnel hacker. There you go. Awesome. So guys, again, check it out.

Some thought provoking thinking types of things, and some things that'll make you know that you can ponder and think about. It's not just on those type of things, but it's a little bit on business too. So it's a little bit of everything on the digital vibe. I get into every once in a while, talking about anything the topics of the day that thinks that are going on. So you never know what you might expect when you listen to the digital vibe when you when you download this podcast and make your comments on the digital vibe as well. Let's see. Was I, oh, I was talking. I was very much involved in talking about the self actualization while I'm already, you know, while I'm in that being in that mode of being that way, living that way, living my dreams. I, it's something else when you're living it. It's real, it's real. It's a wonderful thing. I, I can't say how much I really enjoy my life and how much that I have. The effort in the work that it takes into getting it where it is, you know, people can look at things and say, wow, you know. You know, I don't. You know, when people look at things and says, oh God, that must be an easy thing for that person to do. Or some people others might look at people say, gosh, envious stepper, I don't, you know, all that stuff, but that's not really what it's about. You know, I have. I have learned a lot from other people simply by just, you know, observing people, self actualization is really about you. You know you, you listen to other people, you learn from books, you learn from reading, but the most the biggest way that she can, you know, be authentic in your life is really from experience experience will always be the best teacher. Experience will always be your defining moment. Experience. Low is tell you to to whatever you need to learn life as a teacher. Life will always tell you this or that, and it's kind of up to you to read the signs of what's going on because life is always speaking. So wherever you're at in the world and you're listening to this podcast, life is always speaking. The question is, are you going to answer the door. Okay. I gonna finish up here. Not really finish up. Give you the some of the last matter fact. I'm going to finish up the last ten or eleven signs at know that you are self actualized in your life, and these should be some guide posts for you to kind of guide. You know, kinda give you a kind of a benchmark to see where you're at in your life and where you need to go what you need to adjust, what you don't need to change, that kind of thing. So number nine, you expect miracles luck to happen often. Yeah, yeah. Yes. Yes, they and they do. Luck in miracles happen often. It seems that their times that I'm not even is like all of a sudden it's flow and I'm in that flow. And then all of a sudden these opportunities pop up these miracles pop up. Did I didn't expect that it didn't expect? So when you when you live in that authentic, being authentic, being that person that you know being, you know striving for that, then you become you. You look at life in a different way. You cultivate being grateful and thankful. You expect things to happen and you what you put out there in life. Is. Is something that you want. Good. You wanna put something that's. That's good. That's a positive that's that's worthwhile. That's loving. That's beneficial. And because is that thing called karma. There's I think karma, but you do, you are, you know, you see yourself from that position that, hey, you know what? I'm gonna amazing person. I know I have what it takes. I have a high self esteem for myself, all those type of things. And you start finding yourself these opportunities start to open on my gosh. She looked like hair, they're everywhere. All these opportunities that are set up. So that's the, that's the thing when people look at other people and say, oh my gosh, that person this and that, and all these opportunities and all these things are happening for them. A lot of the times it's just really because of who they become in life is just growing. And you don't know what goes on behind the scenes of a person's life. But the, like I said before, the most important work that you'll ever do the work on yourself. That's the most important work. You'll do growing yourself, learning growing doing things, whatever it is that you doing for yourself that you have to do that that's going to be the most important work that you do for yourself. Self development. Self development, and that's why you have to, you know, do the work, the work on yourself, do what you need to do for yourself to get yourself to a place where you need to grow to learn and to have a a more productive life. I love you know this. It's incredible. You know, once in a while I take the time to really look at where I've come from and look at where I'm going, and I love my life. I love it. It's incredible, but it's only because it became Antic only because I chose to be authentic. You know, be yourself. Number ten, you set aside time each day to ponder and meditate. Yeah, that's important. That's important. We live in such a busy busy, busy life, a busy schedule that we don't slow down enough to really catch what life is saying. We have to meditate, we have to ponder things. We have to fly for saying something and you're not answering. You don't care to answer. Look that's choice. But for those of you who really want to move forward in your life and you ponder things, you think something about that and you ponder, you think you meditate, you know there's more to life than just what than than than where you're at in your life right now. So you set aside that kind of time. That's private time. You know, that's personal time. I try to always do that every day. The set aside that time to just think to meditate, you know, gives me it gives me perspective clarity and everything like that. Lets me really see where I'm going where I'm going, you know. So it's important to do that. And even even even even if I get to do it for, I get to do it sometimes for a lot of times because the times that I take off and take a break, I'm able to look at things and see things. I'm able to kind of take the time to just kind of alone to myself and I enjoy it. It's a lot. It's refreshing. You can come back with with such a clarity such a a freshness, such kind of. Everything that you do number eleven, you highly selective with your time. You know how to say no often I won't go so deep into that. You just know how to say no. You say no to those opportunities, no, to those things that you're not interested and. You say no, very often number twelve. You do things every day to create the future. You desire. Every day you're doing a little something. Now I don't do everything every day, but I do a little something all most of the time doing something, but not, you know, not where it's, like I said, I'm part, but you do you set aside each day to do a little something that's gonna help you get towards your goals. So you set us at that time to do something. You don't procrastinate. And I think that's the most important thing about anything. The longer that you procrastinate, something you're supposed to do something and you don't do it that is going to have you. Let's say years, go by weeks, go by months, go by, but you lose time and time is that thing that none of us can get back. So once you make that decision to procrastinate, you know, all that chunk of time is eating away at you. Why you could be doing some things to get some things done. And in, like I said, I set up the way that I want things to be. I could actually literally do my forty to eighty hours a week if I wanted to, but I chose not to 'cause I don't like to get burnt out easy. So so I kind of. Watch that. So I, I again, I plan is defective planning. So when you plan, you're able to know some things able to see where you're going, you know what you want, and that's the importance of taking that time out for yourself. And then once you know what to do, you don't hesitate to do it, you you, you, you do it. You don't hesitate. Because you, you know, waiting, you know, for what kinda thing number thirteen. You feel a gap between yourself and those who used to associate with? Yes, that is so true. Once you become more of yourself and months, once you become more aware of yourself, you start to distance yourself. Life starts distance itself from you. Those types of people that you no longer hang with no longer associate with because you grew up a little. And those people don't hang around you anymore. That's one of those telltale signs that you know that you are becoming self actualized. Because you start to look at things differently. You see people differently. You see them for how they really. Are you see yourself how you really are and with the more that you aware of yourself, the more that happens the more that over sudden you start distancing yourself, it's not that has anything to do with them. It has to do with you. You more aware of yourself now and you're able to see them. Clearly. Clearly number fourteen you seek change constantly. Yes. You seek change because you like to change, love change, you love transformation. Is that thing that changed? You know, this thing. I love it so much because you know what? Every time I, I learned something I become aware of something. I learned something and I do it. There's a change and then, oh, there's that moment of uncomfortableness coming back again. It's about to change you again, you know. And then I change. But I love change and change not change in the sense of, you know, when it's time to move away from something to move on from something to being a different something, whatever it is for you, whatever that means for you. But change comes change comes constantly. You know, the challenges, the challenge, the things that challenge you to change often they do. And you transform all of a sudden is I think that you need to push yourself. Let's say, for example, you want to own your own company. Those things will come along that will push you to change and start to transform you. Oh, when you got that, then it says, okay, let's do this again to learn something new. And then the next thing you know your change it transforming again. But that's what it does, but you becoming more of yourself in becoming more aware of yourself. So if you say you put out there in the universe at one to be a business owner, one own my own business, I wanna do my own thing. Then the universe will conspire to give you what you want. And it will challenge you every step of the way it'll Chan believe you me. It will challenge you every step of the way to see that. Did you really learn that? Did you really understand that? Do you really? Did you really do that? It'll come back around, oh, you forgot about that. Okay. It will it will I guarantee you? I know that. Number fifteen, you find joy in taking risks a love it. I do. I love it. I, you know, I have done so many. Taking chances leaps of faith and risking things and doing things. I don't have anything to lose. My thing is I have nothing to lose here. I have nothing to lose why not risk it? You know why not just go and try something do something. I just kind of like focaccia into the win, and I'm gonna have some fun with this, but that's what happens. I find joy. Enjoy it. Now it may not work out, but it doesn't matter. I find joy in that it really, really joy in doing that. And it could be something that's, you know, I've tried many different things that I thought that I couldn't do. That was a little bit nervous, but I protest it with love. Enjoy. And because of that, it was like, okay. All right, I got that. I got it. And then I got through that. Got it. Done. You know, you you, it's, it's, it's, it's that thing that boy, life life does really offer. So many different things that you can do that you realize that you can do. But when you stop in, you don't wanna take risks anymore and you kind of settle in and you kind of say, hey, I don't really want to do anything anymore. I don't really want to do anything. You know you just give up on life, you don't. You don't care anymore. But boy, the joy that you could have experienced the joy that you can experience when you do. Why? Why do you think when you see people as they grow older, enjoying life, more and more, it's it's not necessarily always because it used to retire because they choose to learn. You see them out there doing some things that young people can't do. You see them out there doing some amazing things, my gosh at their age, and they're doing that. You wonder why people still at actors act? Right is right is because it simply enjoy doing it. And they take risks that projects won't work out. But it doesn't matter because they're happy within themselves. Happy within the cell. So it doesn't really matter if they're not. You know, that thing that's not happening because they're happy with life. You ever read the book and I have it on sale at shopping network dot com. Do what you love in the money will follow. That's what it says. Do what you love doing. What you love means you're gonna take some risk on things along the way. Some may work out some not work, but you know what? It doesn't matter. You take joint in doing that because it's what you love. Number sixteen, you notice truth, hidden everything. Every evolved person notices some kind of truth, some kind of subtle connection, something speaking to you, whether it's a TV show, whether it's a book, whether it's another person. Whether it's nature. It doesn't matter this always the universe. Speaking to you, your sensitive, you become more sensitive to those things in TV shows and a movie. How many times have you watched a movie and you've watched a movie and the movie kind of speaks to you. Start crying. Or you listen to a podcast like the digital vibe. And it touches you. How many times have you read a book? You picked up a book. You didn't know why you're reading the book. Boy. After you read that book a change your whole life. That you become more and more sensitive to that. You become more and more aware and more and more by that meaning more sensitive. And you see that boy before you want recognize these signs before, but now that you are aware now that you become more enlighten, you become aware. You start seeing things that you didn't notice before. So where you saw something, you didn't pay attention to it because you became aware of it. He started to notice it even more. But that's what it does. That's what wariness does. Number seventeen year con- your conscious about what should we that means you watch what you eat. You know, mindful eating. You're mindful about what you put in your body. You care about what you're putting your body and become more mindful. You become the more aware that you become more mindful. You know, you watch those things. You watch the things that you eat. It's just like you watch what you the people that you hang around with. You watch what you eat. You know you, if you're if you're person that's trying to lower your weight or Louis cholesterol, you watch what you eat. You watch what you eat. When you become aware of something you you do those things that make you more way you don't you, you just don't eat any and everything. You're conscious about what you that means you're aware of what you eat. You care about in number teen, you care more about other people. But you don't care about what they think about you. You care more about people, but you don't care. There's that thing that I don't, you know, successful people don't care about what other people think. So successful people don't care about what other people think you care less about that. Because the more that you care about yourself, the more that you aware of yourself, the more actualize that you become, the less you care about what other people think, because it's not about them anymore. It's about you. It's about you. So the more that you've that the the lessons, you care about what they think about you. The more that you the more time and energy and focus, you can focus on yourself. And the last time energy resources this, or that that you have to focus on, then it doesn't matter anymore. The less time that you have to focus on them. The less time. So the less time you have to focus in the people that don't matter the more. What does that do that frees up more time and energy that you have to focus on yourself? So the, the less that you can't, whether the people think. The more time you have for yourself. And the nice thing they're really incredible thing about that is that's a job here on this earth. It's to become a best selves. To live our best life. It is that is job here on this to do exactly that to live our best life. To to live up to expectations. Of being our best self and only through awareness and going through life experiences that you become aware of that you may choices you become aware of these thing that's going to happen. It's not going to happen any other way. So the more that you are. Listening to life. The more that you will be, you know, be able to, okay, I'm gonna. Do you know you're aware of things? You know things you look at things. You notice things more. And the more that you take action upon those things you care less about what people think about you because you're working on yourself and not worry about what other people think it's a lot of energy really to waste on what other people are thinking and doing about you about thinking about you warned about that that takes up so much energy. You know what, when you get to that point, not caring about what other people think. Your life will change forever. You'll find you have so much time and energy to think about you to do the things you want to do to focus on what you need to do to mind your own business and take care of your business and the less time you have to worry about other people's stuff. You will have given yourself so much more time. Free time. Sometimes you have, you'll have that free time to sit back. Oh my God, all that time. It was spending with that. Oh, doing that. And I cared about that. I was wasting my time. And then you give that time back to yourself. Number nineteen. You no longer compare yourself with others because as an evolved person, you happy with who you are, you're happy with who you've become. You don't have to look at somebody else and say, gosh, I wish I was like them. You happy in your own skin. Number twenty. You genuinely and genuinely and finally, number twenty, your general genuinely want the best for other people. Yeah, you do because. How often it is that when you are not you, this is the thing about this. This is becoming aware and being self actualized. When you are not. You don't want the best for other people because you don't have the best for yourself. So when you want the best for yourself, you want the best for other people when you do the best for yourself. Okay. Let's put it that way. You'll do your best for other people when you love yourself, you love other people. When you respect yourself, respect other people when you care about yourself, your care about, that's how the cycle of live is likely this world goes. You can only get back what you put in. So if you put nothing. And you don't do anything expect nothing. If you don't do anything that you need to become. Yourself. To become self to become you're offended self. If you do absolutely nothing. Then you can't expect any changes in your life ever occur. And if you choose not to become aware of anything like that. You can be damn sure that you will never get anything like that. But these things, these twenty signs that you know that you are self actualize that you are becoming your true self. These are guidelines guide posted this, you know, for you to see where you're at in your life. So you may be sitting right now in thinking my gosh, I should have been this. I should of this, but then you listen to a podcast like this and you kind of wait a minute, you know, she's right. I need to really go check myself here because that's what it's about. Looking at yourself looking at you. You know, I think the most loving thing that anybody any human being 'can-do is to love themselves. To be themselves. That's the most courageous loving thing you can do for you for your life for humanity is to love yourself. As to believe in yourself to respect yourself. To become that the become that person you suppose you're meant to become. To become that whole person. But I give you these signs because I had to, I measured myself by these signs to. I measured myself by these to let me know whether I was on track or I was off track. I measured my growth by these and many other books, many other mentors, many other things I measured my life was we measured by those things to see that I am doing the same thing than I am living up to my best highest potential. And I am. So that's, that's, that's. That's the point. That's the point I'm getting across. I only share with you this. Something that's real for me. There's a lot of people out there who will tell you one thing and they do another and they live another. No. I mean, I I am responsible not only for my brands, but for myself and for what I put out there in the world. Some careful about that. I have standards, standards, values. Okay. So twenty signs that you know that you are. Becoming self actualized. Twenty signs play this back over over again. Use it as a measuring stick for your life. Use it as a guideline to see where you're at, where you need to go, where you need to get a little bit better at. We need to adjust, and I come back to these different things every once in a while to make sure I'm where I'm supposed to be, and I'm on track. So this is podcast.
