Historically, Google advertisers haven’t liked funnels—for a lot of reasons. But is that about to drastically change?&nbsp;On today’s bite-sized episode, host Kasim Aslam is talking about his favorite topic (cue the sarcasm): funnels.

Now, not only is Kasim rethinking his opinion of funnels, he’s re-evaluating the very definition. “Marketers didn’t invent the funnel,” he says. “A funnel is a natural sequence through which a purchasing decision is made. It exists for your product or service in your industry completely independent of you.” The funnel is with your customer. The more you work to understand your customer, your avatar, the more you understand the funnel. Funnels aren’t dead, he says.

How Google Outsmarted Facebook and What it Means for Marketers

So, how did Facebook end up taking all the heat for this privacy stuff, while Google sat back quietly and dodged the bullets?&nbsp;On today’s episode, co-hosts Ralph Burns and Kasim Aslam talk about the absolute brilliance of Google. For one thing, they don’t have a “face of the company,” so while everyone is out here hating Mark Zuckerberg and turning him into a meme, Google (whoever “Google” is) is more than happy to let him be the villain. Google watched Facebook take the heat for all the iOS 14 privacy updates madness. Then, when everyone was so fatigued that they didn’t even care anymore, Google rolled out Performance Max, the craziest, most invasive, most heavily-targeted tool in the history of the world.

3 Ways Running Traffic Has Changed... Maybe Forever

Performance Max is the future of all things traffic.&nbsp;On today’s episode, co-hosts Ralph Burns and Kasim Aslam walk us through the three big things they’ve learned from Google Performance Max in the past few months. At this early point in history, most people are not yet running PM. If you are, you’re in a great spot as a pioneer and influencer. It’s tempting to hold all this knowledge close to the vest, the guys say, so they can enjoy the fruits of their labor before the whole world catches on, but they can’t help but share. They (and their clients) are already spending thousands (even millions) of dollars on this platform. It truly changes everything we’ve ever known about traffic. The Golden Rule of Performance Max, Kasim says, is that there are no Golden Rules. Every client, every implementation is so different—and so customizable in the ways that matter. They’re literally

An Ethical Way to Steal Your Competitors YouTube Traffic

This hack won a “Wicked Smart” award at a recent War Room Mastermind, so you know it’s got to be good.&nbsp;On today’s “What’s Working Now” episode, host Kasim Aslam shares a brilliant tip for free that a bunch of other entrepreneurs had to pay $35k to hear. Well, that’s a little bit of an exaggeration. Thirty-five grand is the annual fee for a War Room Mastermind membership (and totally worth the investment, Kasim says). He shared his totally legal hack in a five-minute powerpoint presentation at a recent meeting, and his fellow members were duly impressed. It all started in November 2020 when Youtube came out and said they were going to show ads on all videos. In January 2022, Kasim came up with a wicked smart idea to use that to his decisive advantage.Listen in to hear how you too can pull off an ethical heist of your competitors’ most valuable organic traffic.

Episode 387: Funnels and Google Ads Now a Match Made in Heaven?

Historically, Google advertisers haven’t liked funnels—for a lot of reasons. But is that about to drastically change?&nbsp;On today’s bite-sized episode, host Kasim Aslam is talking about his favorite topic (cue the sarcasm): funnels. Funnels haven’t functioned well traditionally in the Google ecosystem, so he hasn’t had much use for them. Until Google Performance Max. Now, not only is Kasim rethinking his opinion of funnels, he’s re-evaluating the very definition. “Marketers didn’t invent the funnel,” he says. “A funnel is a natural sequence through which a purchasing decision is made. It exists for your product or service in your industry completely independent of you.” The funnel is with your customer. The more you work to understand your customer, your avatar, the more you understand the funnel. Funnels aren’t dead, he says. They’re more important than ever.Listen in to find out more.IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN:<li

Shaina started her company because there was a huge market for repurposed content and no one was doing it. But she had been a bottleneck in the past and knew she couldn’t be the one doing all the work this time around. She’d create the processes, the SOPs, make them efficient, document them, and pass the baton. She designed a recurring, replicable model and built her business up from the ground like that.

Imagine if someone just handed you a list of every single tool you need to effectively measure the performance of your marketing.&nbsp;On today’s episode, co-hosts Ralph Burns and Kasim Aslam sit down once again with Chris Mercer, founder of MeasurementMarketing.io. This time he’s got a whole tech stack he’s going to share with us from start to finish, the whole kit and caboodle. Seriously, he’s giving away the farm here. It’s easy to over-complicate things, Mercer says. The skill is to make things simple. How do we keep it simple? Every measurement system has to do 3 things: 1.) Collect information to get answers to questions. 2.) Store that information to access later. And 3.) Build reports on that data. If you don’t know how to measure, all the tools in the world won’t help you. “Measurement is how we listen,” he says. “Marketing is how we respond.”
