On the show today I’m joined by one of my students, Tammy Cannon. Tammy owns a business called Cannon Social Media, and she creates online courses and manages Facebook ads for creative businesses.
In this episode, Tammy is going to break down a simple automated sales funnel that she created which allowed her to grow her email list and also generate revenue through an Instagram challenge.
We’ll look at where she got the idea to run the challenge, what her objectives were with it and why she went the automated route to deliver it. Tammy also shares how she was able to get a 60% conversion rate on her opt-in page and what she did in terms of an upsell.
The big takeaway I want you to get here is the simplicity of it all. You’re going to hear how she started out promoting her challenge to her Facebook group by listening to the members’ feedback and then refined the funnel from there.
You’ll notice that Tammy only spent about $300 over two weeks to test it out against cold traffic, and her future plans this year to re-run the challenge with some adjustments. This really is something that anyone can do!
On the Show Today You’ll Learn:
On the show today I want to share with you an interview that I did on a podcast called Photogs Unite! This is a podcast that teaches the business side of the photography and helps professionals do what they do best – be behind the camera.
The host of the show is a guy by the name of Mike Lloyd, and the reason that I chose this specific conversation to share with you here is that it was really good (if I do say so myself!) and Mike is such a great interviewer.
We cover a lot of things that are considered foundational principles (conversions, objectives, re-targeting strategies and more), but they are essential for anyone wanting to be successful marketing a business on Facebook.
As I talk about often, a lot of this hinges on how well you really understand your target audience. It’s about having those conversations with your ideal customer, listening to what he or she says, and then using that information in your Facebook ads.
This is another episode that can really benefit you, regardless of the industry you’re in. You also don’t need to have a business that operates only locally to gain value from what Mike and I talk about today.
I want to do something a little bit different with you here today, and it’s something that I want to start doing more of on the podcast. I’ll be taking a business and sharing with you how I would market it on Facebook. Today’s business is a small fitness and rehab clinic, Fix Body Group, a local company that my wife and I are actually clients of.
Recently the owner of this business, Sean, introduced himself to me and explained the current marketing strategy that they’re using at the local level. I then gave him my suggestions on how they should be using Facebook, as well as Instagram, to grow the business.
Regardless of what type of business you have, my conversation with Sean is very relevant. I’d like you to take what jumps out at your and apply it to your own business, or for clients that you manage Facebook ads for. As you’ll see, you really don’t have to be spending a lot of money to implement and effective marketing strategy online!

For today’s show, we’re going deep and talking about how to ethically use subconscious selling to improve your marketing and increase your sales. Joining me to talk about this is my friend Jim Fortin.
Jim is an expert on this stuff and he has over 20 years experience in subconscious selling and high performance using neurolinguistics and behavioral science. Jim has created a powerful new selling technique, which he calls NeuroPersuasion®.
As you’ll hear, what Jim teaches can do things like shorten your selling cycles and significantly improve your sales performance very quickly. In this episode, we dive into how to use brain triggers and pattern interruptions in your ads, what it means to use metaphorical imagery in your marketing (and what this can do for you), ways to demonstrate your offer to differentiate yourself from others and a whole lot more.
We haven’t talked about a lot of these concepts on the podcast before, and this is an episode that you’re probably going to want to listen to multiple times (and take lots of notes!) to fully grasp the fascinating topics that Jim is talking about today.
For this first podcast episode of 2018, I’m taking a look back at some of the big lessons that I learned about advertising on Facebook in 2017. I’m also looking ahead at what to expect in this year in terms of Facebook advertising, and online marketing in general, and sharing this with you.
It’s not enough to just be running multiple campaigns on Facebook, you’re going to need to know what you want to accomplish and have a clear strategy around this…
With the frequent changes on the platform, it’s up to the advertiser to check Facebook’s policies on a very regular basis, as well as keeping up on all of the platforms and emerging technology so that you can take a holistic approach to marketing your brand.
A lot of what I talk about today, like building relationships and being aware of your customer journey, can be considered fundamentals of marketing and things I discuss often. However, you’ll see just how important it is going to be to determine how to best have a personalized conversation with your target audience and to do this as soon as possible.
Stay tuned for the next episode with Jim Fortin, as we talk about how to ethically use subconscious selling to improve your ads and get more sales. We go deep in this conversation, and Jim shares so many fascinating insights on mindset and sales.
