Grab Expert Secrets and ClickFunnels

This summer I went on a sunny solo trip to the south of France, and spent some time in the beautiful town of Biarritz. I also spent a few days in even more beautiful San Sebastian in the Basque Country. It was a holiday but I also worked a little on my side hustles….as ever!


I went solo partly as I thought I’d meet other people, but it turned out it was more of a romantic destination! Still a great trip though 🙂

While there, I started getting into a book called ‘Expert Secrets’, by a guy called Russell Brunson. Russell’s whole thing is that we live in a time where anyone, anywhere can monetise their expertise.


There is no reason or excuse to not be able to do this, given what we have in the internet and being able to reach people all over the world.

If you have skills, you can monetise them. You just need to know how…

This is where the book comes in – it gives you a framework for how to do this, and it also references a product called ClickFunnels as the way to do it. What on earth is ClickFunnels? Well, if you are daunted or intimidated by the ‘techie’ side of setting up an online business, I recommend you check it out.

With ClickFunnels, you can:

  • Build a site in a few clicks
  • Set up an email list
  • Create your own membership / login area
  • Launch landing pages
  • Use drag and drop to design your pages and make them look cool!

The best part is that it’s free to get started – well almost. To get the book you just need to pay shipping, which is 7 to 13 dollars (less in euro!)Get the free book here (fill out the form and they’ll post it to directly to you).

To test out a ClickFunnels account costs….nothing! You can get a free 14 day trial and then play with it – just cancel before then if it’s not for you. I have used ClickFunnels for landing pages that do convert very well – mainly because they are designed to convert! Get your free ClicksFunnel trial by signing up here.

There are affiliate links above, but hopefully that’s cool if you are getting value from my emails and free content 🙂

Stay tuned for my next email where I’ll be showing you how the content and links formula I mentioned can work wonders for growing your traffic / online business (see how all this ties together!).

In the meantime, I’m getting back to my book 🙂

Newstalk FM, Let Me Pay to Listen to Your Station!

Attention, my favourite station, Newstalk FM! Some constructive feedback I’d love to hear your take on in fact.

Interruptive, pushy, outbound marketing – it’s something that seems to be only getting worse, not better! Even with all the talk of inbound marketing, building a relationship with prospective customers and site visitors and so on, it still seems that more than ever we do battle every day with constant pop-ups, creepy advertising but most of all – interruptive, irritating advertising in the form of that media staple – ads!
