Russell is making changes, some he is announcing now and some on these two dates:
January 31st – Funnel Hacking Live
March 8th – Russell’s 40th Birthday
But today…..here is the big announcement:
Russell is not selling, merging or stepping down…(Phew!)
All of what he is about to talk about is because of him learning and focussing on becoming a category king after reading the book “Play Bigger”.
Realised he made a mistake 2 years ago: looked at competing other category kings, and cloned features.
Became “Good” at some these features but not GREAT.
As result Development team as well as support people was massively stretched trying to keep up with everything.
As a result end users suffered.
Went to Dreamforce (salesforce’s big event) last year. Mind was blown seeing how such a huge company grows, and had him thinking how to get big like that. So he studied “Behind the Cloud” (the playbook for how Salesforce did it).
What Salesforce does, is they develop and improve their core functionality, and partner with other category kings to bring additional functionality to their platform and their customers.
So he realised they have been doing it all wrong. Realised they had to make a change.
Clickfunnels is the ‘platform’ / ecosystem. So he and the team had a brainstorming meeting and they decided to double down and become category King.
Russell and team they were asking themselves what would be the best thing for their customers.
To get a more in depth review of this you can check this post https://www.funnelcloudstudio.com/clickfunnels-platinum/
* First half of the big announcement *
So half of the announcement is that they are going to be getting the developers to make all the core functionality better, rather than being diverted and diluting their efforts.
* Second half of the big announcement *
Some features will be ‘sunsetted’ (i.e. turned off for new users. Existing users will still ‘have them’, but will be in maintenance mode. Eventually Clickfunnels will find best partners who are category kings).
Features such as:
– Actionetics is changing, and the word “Actionetics” is going away and it will be renamed “Follow-up funnels”…. No longer going to be their own ESP.
The core functionality will stay there, but instead CF will be encouraging customers to integrate with ESPs like Sendgrid…. etc….
All the other features like the messenger bots etc, Clickfunnels will find category kings to integrate with.
Russell asked which companies should CF be partnering with, and is looking to us/you for suggestions of great companies to partner with.
Okay, so that’s the big announcement…
On to other news:
1. Support Upgrades
Asked if anyone would be interested in making extra money then they can apply to join the team of community experts (FYI – I am on that team, and it’s a great fun way of helping other funnel hackers)
2. The continuing mission to Free All Entrepreneurs So you can focus on changing the lives of your Customers”.
Talked about how the degree of success is so varied. There are some people who struggle, and some who make millions.
The secret behind the difference is that those who understand strategy (taught in RB’s various courses), make the money, and the people who don’t understand strategy don’t make the money.
