[E4C22] Sales Funnels Demystified – FusionHQ



Today I made a momentous decision – I have decided to stay in Chiang Mai indefinitely. I’ve spent a lot of time assessing my optimal lifestyle design scenario. One scenario that I explored was spending 6 months in the SF Bay Area, 6 months elsewhere. I have to admit, I miss my tribe – and SF has a unique subculture that is a  blend of technology innovation, sustainability, social enterprise, spirituality, personal growth, music and art, that I find wonderfully expressed by the Burning Man community, that simply cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Not in New York, not in London, not in Ibiza.

But the housing market is really tight in the Bay Area – not a lot of people have an extra room they aren’t already renting out, and if they do, it’s mostly because they want to keep it as a spare guest room for short visits. As opposed to having a friend squat it for half a year.

So when I started looking at the cost of relocating back to the Bay Area for 6 months, the complexity of the process – having to overbid on well-priced rentals because it’s so competitive, leasing a car, God, do I need to buy furniture?  etc, it started to feel like an uphill battle.

And so I took a step back and reflected on a resolution I made earlier this year, to be more in flow, to allow the Universe to carry me, rather than to engage in activities that feel like I am pushing the river.

Chiang Mai is a really easy & good place to be based as a location independent Internet entrepreneur. And in this interview with Leon Jay, online marketer & lifestyle entrepreneur, author, and creator of fusionhq – a powerful, drag and drop online marketing platform and sales funnel in a box – we discuss why Chiang Mai rocks.

If you are a wisdompreneur, someone whose business is based on sharing your expertise, either through consulting, coaching, creating online programs, or selling digital information products, this interview will give you the framework on how to set up your online business. In this interview, Leon shares:

  • The anatomy of a sales funnel system.
  • The pitfalls of using WordPress to power your online business.
  • The 1 thing you should avoid when making follow up offers to customers.
  • How to fine-tune your free optin giveaway to attract optimal signups, without hurting sales.
  • The most common mistakes inexperienced Internet marketers make when creating a sales funnel.
  • Why “free” might be the most expensive decision you make.

And much, much more.
