Rank #1: #183 - Justin Christianson gets REAL about the inspiration behind Conversion Fanatics

Podcast cover
Read more

Justin is a digital marketing veteran with a strong emphasis on implementation and optimization. He is the #1 Amazon bestselling author of Conversion Fanatic: How To Double Your Customers, Sales, and Profits with A/B testing. He is also the co-founder and President of Conversion Fanatics, a full-service conversion rate optimization company helping companies like Burt's Bees, RenewLife, PaleoValley, Lumber Liquidators, Ministry Of Supply and many more increase conversions and marketing performance by 30% to 1850%.

 In this episode of the Be Real Show, Travis and Justin open up the show discussing the inspiration behind Conversion Fanatics. Justin prefers to work with established eCommerce businesses because they are the easiest to help. If you need help with your conversions, first, look at your data. Where are your visitors? Where are your visitors falling off? From there, Justin will start collecting qualitative data through surveys. Then, they measure what is most important from the consumer's point of view. Justin's favorite report is the shopping behavior report because it will tell you if consumers are even putting any products in their online shopping cart. Later, Justin explains the reason some companies do not really care about their home page. Stay tuned to hear Justin answer the top ten questions, including the top four books he highly recommends.

Podcast cover
Read more

Matt Skinner is the founder of Empire West, a boutique private equity firm that specializes in cash flowing apartment buildings. Matt helps busy professionals invest passively in value added apartment buildings where they can enjoy cash flow, tax benefits and growth without having to worry about any of the hassles or headaches of tenants, toilets, or the troubles of landlording. Matt also teaches entrepreneurs how to buy, flip, finance, and operate apartment buildings successfully. You can learn more about this at DealMakerSociety.com.

Growing up in a family of contractors, he started a construction company at the age of 22. He quickly grew that to be doing $10 million a year with over 50 employees. Meanwhile, he began investing in real estate, flipping junker houses and buying rental houses. As he matured, he has graduated to developing property and owning and operating apartment buildings. He now owns Empire West, one of the fastest growing private equity firms that specializes in real estate. He also owns a real estate brokerage, and still manages his development companies and construction projects in house.

She read the blogs of other people who were making a living working on the internet - so called "digital nomads". Kala eventually moved to Mexico City and became a full-time digital nomad.

Podcast cover

Since their inception, Ships Have Sailed have always struck a balance between exuberant pop and substantial alternative rock. Their 2014 debut EP Someday was essentially a soft launch for the band that picked up traction organically; receiving heavy airplay on College, NPR and Commercial radio in the US and Canada. Later that year the band toured the Northeastern US and, in 2015, performed showcases at SXSW, CMJ Music Marathon, Canadian Music Week & NAMM. They also took home accolades from ISC, Unsigned Only and The John Lennon Songwriting Competition.

2015 also saw the release of their first full length album Moodswings - a reflection on how the present is impacted by all other moments in time and how any sort of change can alter the trajectory of one’s life. The LP received glowing reviews from Black Book, Wild Honey Pie and The 405 and spawned a sister release Re: MIX whose tropical house remixes seemed in perfect step with the evolving music climate.

Connor Gillivan ran a million dollar e-commerce business right from his college dorm room. Aside from being an e-commerce entrepreneur, Connor loves reading, running, and wants to make a positive impact on others through his passion. Connor’s path to entrepreneurship started in high school when he followed in his cousin’s footsteps and built his own landscaping business. In college, he teamed up with his business partner Nathan Hirsch and started selling textbooks on Amazon. Within one year, they were able to grow to a $1 million a year business. As their business grew, Connor found a problem with the way people hire e-commerce freelancers. So it was only natural that he start a new business, FreeeUp, to help commerce companies hire freelancers that are reliable and skilled.

#184 - Chris D. Bentley get REAL about how to WIN in Real Estate

Podcast cover
Read more

As one of Dallas' most aggressive real estate magnates in the making, Chris D. Bentley is quickly growing into one of the most popular people on social media. Through his social media posts and videos, we're able to experience what's it's like to be a Realtor®. His achievements to date include:

  • Voted 2017, 2018, and 2019 D Magazine's Best Realtor®
  • 4x Multi-Million Dollar Producer
  • 3x Published Author
  • 90+ videos on YouTube

In this episode of the Be Real Show, Chris and Travis open up the show discussing how sales are such an integral part of real estate. Television shows like to showcase the hustle and entrepreneurship of being a real estate agent. However, real estate is strictly sales and all commission. People who do not have any experience making sales probably will not excel in the field – the turnover rate can be pretty high. Then, Chris describes the housing market in Dallas; loads of corporations are flooding to the area because of tax reasons. The increase of companies results in relocations for their employees; the more people that are moving to Texas, the more work Chris has to do! Also, Chris helps people with their investment portfolios. Most people Chris talks to say they do not have $10,000 to their name – our culture is all about buying things. Stay tuned to hear Chris answer the top ten questions, including the reason he prefers stocks over real estate.

#182 - Ross Johnson gets REAL about Designing a Customer focused Website

Podcast cover
Read more

It has been said that a person should make a living doing something they would gladly do for free. Ross’s focus has always been doing his favorite things, very well. He is a classically trained designer turned web guru. Ross Johnson built his first website in 1995; he has been captivated ever since. He brings clear thinking, a holistic understanding of the web, and a good sense of humor to every project. He founded successful 3.7 DESIGNS in 2004. 3.7 DESIGNS is a web design and web strategy company. 3.7 DESIGNS focuses on not only the design of interactive web sites but also the marketing of them, including search engine optimization, search engine marketing, social media, pay per click, etc. Johnson has designed for a wide range of clientele and situations ranging from small start-ups, municipalities, schools and multinational corporations. Additionally, he maintains several popular designs and web-related blogs. Since founding 3.7 DESIGNS, he continued to co-found Refresh Detroit. Refresh Detroit a part of Refreshing Cities; the web design movement is promoting the spread of usability, accessibility, and web standards. It aims to create an environment of learning through each other.

In this episode of the Be Real Show, Ross and Travis open up the show discussing the meaning behind his name 3.7 DESIGNS. The general idea of The Butterfly Effect is a chain reaction can occur with something unpredictably significant at the end of the chain. When the formula reaches 3.7, that’s when The Butterfly Effect occurs. The biggest question Ross gets is how to get a higher ranking on search engines. Often, these businesses are getting outranked by their competition. Ross helps clients understand SEO better and why their competition may be outranking their business on Google. Some companies still have a strong emphasis on non-digital advertising. Plus, not everyone has their complete focus on the mobile app; many prefer to work on the desktop first. However, Ross says companies should be focusing on their mobile-first, then work on their desktop website. Later, Ross explains how Google algorithms can profoundly affect your rankings. Stay tuned to hear Ross answer the top ten questions, including what he asks himself every morning.

#181 - John Jonas gets REAL about hiring Filipino virtual assistants with OnlineJobs.ph

Podcast cover
Read more

John Jonas lives in Utah, and he founded OnlineJobs.ph. His life is better because of his Filipino virtual assistants. John had a regular "job" for eight months after college, and his biggest goal at that time was to be able to quit that job. John managed to quit back in 2004 and worked from home for himself ever since then. When he first hired someone from the Philippines in January of 2006, John knew he was onto something special. Since then, John has learned that for most people, life is better with Filipino workers on your team. Yes, because of his Filipino workers, he gets to play golf, spend loads of time with his wife and kids, and get out backpacking in the middle of the week. John works for about 17 hours a week because of the fantastic work they do.

In this episode of the Be Real Show, Jon and Travis open up the show discussing the need behind hiring Filipino virtual assistants. At first, John had a reference from someone to hire his first VA full-time. It was working so well; John wanted to create a platform for himself and others to find VAs without going through a company. The most common job on OnlineJobs.ph is a virtual assistant. Anything that can be done online or on a computer is done – building websites, data entry, admin work, and telemarketing. Then, John explains the cultural differences of people in the Philippines versus other cultures – people there are unusually loyal, hard-working, and honest. Stay tuned to hear John answer the top ten questions, including some cool places in Utah to check out.

#180 - Matt Javit gets Real about Traveling the World with his Wife

Podcast cover
Read more

Have you ever dreamed of leaving it all behind to travel the world?

Matt Javit has been traveling the world full time after leaving the United States in February 2017, experiencing over 30 countries and 100 cities since making the difficult decision to leave his career at his peak to discover the beauty of the world. Before his departure, he had a high-achieving, beautiful life in Indianapolis, Indiana, where he was a top-performing sales executive for an international technology consulting company winning 5-straight international sales awards. He loved hanging out with his friends, spending quality time with his family, and making new connections in his vast network. But, he liked to travel and experience new adventures, so he and his wife decided to fulfill their dreams and pack their bags for a 2-3 year adventure around the world.

In this episode of the Be Real Show, Matt and Travis open up the show discussing Matt’s inspiration behind his international travels with his wife. Plus, Matt describes how he chose the destinations; they didn’t take winter clothes, so they followed the sun for twenty-seven months. First, they would book the big trips to different continents; in between, they would figure out the logistics to get from country to country. Then, Matt explains how he started Passport Joy – he thinks career gaps will be much more familiar with the next generation. From traveling all around the world, Matt has made lifelong friendships. For instance, Chris Gayle, a world-famous cricket player, invited Matt to his birthday party in Jamaica. Stay tuned to hear Matt answer the top ten questions; Matt reveals the only book that he brought on his travels.

#179 - Casey Carroll gets REAL about running Effective Social Ads

Podcast cover
Read more

While other advertisers focus on cost per lead, Casey Carroll focuses on something totally different: cost per acquisition. No, here's his bold claim: If you're a Chiropractor, Dentist, or Auto Dealer, he will help you grow your business, or he will gladly refund your money (he has never had to do this before, so he is confident in this bold promise). When it comes to business growth, Casey takes a holistic look at a potential client to evaluate the "blind spots" that are impacting profit - wasteful ad-spend, inefficient follow-up and systems, and inefficient sales process are the three biggest enemies of growth, and they either are costing you money or opportunities. Casey has a system and method to eliminate each of these profit-sucking problems, and it is Casey's job to ensure that you make more money for every dollar you spend with him than any other agency out there.

 In this episode of the Be Real Show, Casey and Travis open up the show discussing Casey's sales background and how it made him a natural fit to be an excellent advertiser. You can put businesses in different buckets: firms that have a traffic problem and firms that have a conversion problem. Most smaller companies are not suited to start running advertising because the sales process sucks. At the end of the day, cost per acquisition is the only thing that matters. Measuring ads based on cost per acquisition can be the single metric you need to look at from now on. Instagram ads work; Casey has bought rings, shoes, and toys off of Instagram ads. Plus, Casey explains why you should not treat Instagram and Facebook as the same ad platform; they are entirely different. Then, Casey reveals the ways big data can determine things about us that we don't even know yet. Stay tuned to hear Casey answer the top ten questions, including the reason he stopped playing video games.

#177 - Colin Hogan gets Real about Video Marketing for your Business

Podcast cover
Read more

After graduating from the University of Maryland in 2008, Colin moved from the east coast to Chicago. He was initially called there by the sirens of opportunity in the business and comedy world. After successfully navigating his way through management roles in the corporate sector (banks, tech startups, etc.) and semi-successfully trudging through the comedy industry, he stumbled upon Demo Duck in 2014. Making the career move to the video production world, his lifelong passion, was exciting and daunting. Finding his footing relatively quickly, he was soon leading projects with international brands located all over the world. In 2017, Colin was handed the reins of the company when he was promoted to Managing Director – talk about imposter syndrome. He is one of those lucky people who absolutely loves what he does and is honored to work with super-smart people at Demo Duck.                                                                                      

In this episode of the Be Real Show, Colin and Travis open up the show discussing Demo Duck and how they help customers. They do a lot of videos in the tech space and healthcare space. The educational component is a big draw for customers; Demo Duck dives deep into the business to write scripts and put together cohesive storyboards. The easiest way to start a video is by making thought leadership videos. People in the audience won’t knock it for being low-quality as long as it’s a valuable opinion. Plus, it will help humanize your company and build a brand. Once you have some more money in the bank, your business should make a video for your home page. Stay tuned to hear Colin answer the top ten questions, including why growing fast isn’t for everyone.

#176 - Josh Kelly gets REAL about getting more Positive Reviews

Podcast cover
Read more

Josh Kelly is the CEO of RevuKangaroo. Unlike other review sites, RevuKangaroo has created a custom API that allows you to install our system directly on your website. The look and feel are consistent with your current website design. Your customers would never know it is a RevuKangaroo product; instead, they will only see you and your employees. RevuKangaroo has a unique system that collects reviews on your employees' service rather than customers rating your business directly. This typically leads to a more significant increase in reviews written, and they tend to be more positive.

In this episode of the Be Real Show, Josh and Travis open up the show discussing how he became an entrepreneur. Parker and Sons is a family business, Josh worked on their marketing and blew up the company. His goal was never to become an entrepreneur; he found a need and decided to create a business out of it. The name RevuKangaroo just fell into their laps because it was so difficult to find a URL with "review" at a reasonable price. The reason you need RevuKangaroo is because everyone who is searching for your business will be making decisions based on reviews online. If you have too many negative reviews online, Josh says you shouldn't even bother having a website. RevuKangaroo uses lots of different methods to get their name out in the world; there is not one silver bullet to build a business. Then, Josh explains the three ways to make money: raise prices, get customers to spend more frequently, or get new customers. Stay tuned to hear Josh answer the top ten questions, including why he doesn't waste time with social media.

LinkedIn is the number one social platform for business and personal branding. Your profile needs to be attractive to the types of people you are looking to serve and connect with. Once your profile is built, JoAnne says you need to know why you are there. Is it for building brand awareness, a network, or prospecting? Next, make sure you are sending personalized notes when connecting with others on LinkedIn. The more personal you can get, the better; pull things from their profile to mention in your message.
