Russell Brunson started working even before he graduated from Boise State University. Actually, by the time he graduated he already sold over $1 million of his products.
At the time, pagers were popular, almost everyone had one. So Russell started producing DIY screen projectors for wall. He was selling them for $40, while the costs of production were $10.
But Russell didn’t stop there. He also created a booklet with info on “how people can make $40 each time their pager rang”.
The booklet also became popular which lead him to create another digital, info product.
He created a guide on how to create potato guns and sold it online. The sales of this product exceeded six figures.
Brunson and his team were spending a lot of time on creating and optimizing their sales funnels that they were using to sell products online, so Bruson decided to create a software that will make these tasks much easier to do.
In 2014, Brunson launched ClickFunnels with Todd Dickerson.
As of August 2019 the company has over 90,000 users who pay monthly subscriptions of $97 for a standard account or $297 per month for an unlimited account.
The company’s marketing is very aggressive, they use a lot of retargeting ads, so if you visit their website once you will probably get a lot of ads from them the next time you visit Facebook, Instagram or a site that displays Google Ads.
ClickFunnels also has a lucrative affiliate program that brought them tons of new users.
Some of these companies pay per lead, some per sale, some per each app install. You gotta check that before you start driving traffic to any of the offers.
