What’s It About…
This might sound counter-intuitive but it can sometimes be harder to get someone to use your product than it is to sell it to them.
Yea – I know – mindblown, right?
When you sell a product to somebody, that’s half the battle. It’s a completely different thing to get them to use the product.
You’d be shocked at how many people will buy things and never even use them – regardless of how much it cost.
Now, you might be thinking – well, that’s on them… I can’t make them use it.
But what you need to understand is, there’s danger if your customers don’t actually use the product.
…what do you mean Steve – how can there be danger in that?!
Think about it like this…
If they don’t use the product, it means you don’t get any testimonials because you’re not getting any success stories. And if you’re in the marketing world, then you know how powerful testimonials can be for your business and products.
This will just put more pressure on your sales message if you don’t have any juicy testimonials to support it. People will think that it doesn’t do everything that you say it will. They even start to wonder why they’re paying you – you never want a potential customer to be having thoughts like that.
So it’s one thing, like I said, for you to sell the product, and that’s completely another thing for them to actually go use it.
And because of that, onboarding systems are a must.
So when you’re going out and about and you’re actually selling the product, the easiest thing for you to go and do is to learn how to onboard people, not just sell them.
For any product that I sell, there is a written-out onboarding system as well as a written-out usage system. You’ve got to encourage people to actually use the thing that they’re buying.
One of the biggest ways a lot of MLMs have grown is by combining the power of their sales and onboarding systems. When you can link them up, it will become a super-power for your business.
In this episode, I’ll walk you through how onboarding goes on to fuel product sales and recruiting.
- A challenging aspect of any business: Getting people to use the product they buy ([1:47])
- Having a unique standalone system around selling any product, not just recruiting ([4:09])
- It’s common for new people in any MLM to freak out over the sale ([4:44])
- How ClickFunnels encourages you to use their software with a challenge ([6:14])
- Make sure whatever it is that you sold also comes with an instruction manual ([8:27])
- A bite-size, day-by-day challenge or some other sequence for the onboarding ([8:48])
- These bite-size things increase the consumption of the product… ([9:48])
- As new customers take these tiny steps, it triggers those feel-good hormones ([11:04])

I get so much value from this podcast. The one on mlm being over saturated was so good. It really got me thinking about how I can help my audience more by solving their problems. I continue to struggle with what exactly to publish but I think I'm really narrowing it down. That you so much for your ideas and taking the time to give so much value!

Steve Larsen wants to change the MLM industry - and he already is! By using tactics of the 21st century to recruit, sell and train, MLM can finally come out of the 90's. What I love the most about this podcast is that there are actual lessons you can apply on your business right away - not just the motivational fluff that a lot of others have out there.

I thought I was the only person in the world that thought there was something wrong with the way mlms were operating in terms of their process of sales and recruiting their downline. My background is in business analysis where I analyze business processes and provide alternative and lean solutions through optimization and automation using technology. I am so glad I came across this podcast!! Thank you! I am so excited for this journey
- Steven Larsen practices what he preachesby lambo996 from United States

- The MLM industry Disrupterby Omezimam from United States
No one else talks REAL MLM Marketing better than Steve. I decided to walk away from MLM in 2018 because I was just sick to my stomach building the way the “GooRoos” preach it. Steve’s teachings is giving me hope again and making me reconsider MLM....

I found Steve about 15 months ago....my business was flat, stagnant and almost to the point of regression...now we’re doing $120-150k in sales per month EVERY SINGLE MONTH! He’s the real deal and I couldn’t recommend him enough.

- Episode 27 By Application Onlyby Nikki G. ? from United States
Hey Steve. I love BOTH of your podcasts. Thank you for all you teach us. I am a newbie to the funnel world. I went through OFA challenge Jan/Feb 2019 and immediately started consuming everything you've produced. I have joined your downline, YAY! Quick question, would you teach us how to create an application in a funnel? I created an application in another form (because I needed it to be long... but I wasn't sure how to link it into the funnel...or is there another way to create a longer application within click funnels? I appreciate your guidance. I really feel like I can not only be successful but that I'm on my way to be a capitalist pig too! ha ha
- Truely mind blowing stuffby RemoteWorker1 from United Kingdom
I’m not in MLM and probably never will be but I love listening to the ideas and strategies that Steven Larsen shares.

- Mind = Blownby Career Generator from United States
I have listen to and followed Stephen on every medium I can find. He not only has a wealth of knowledge on everything related to marketing, he knows how to teach and entertain too. If you like Russell Brunson, Steve is like Russell with rocket fuel. My favorite podcast episode is #170... emotional selling. I have listened to it about 10 times. Why? because I get a couple minutes into it and my mind is racing with ideas about how to implement what he just said and I forget to keep listening! Finally, I got all the way through it... so I listened a few more times! I am bummed when I go to my podcasts and there is no new update from Steve... that's the only bad part... no new updates!!!

- Want results???? JUST LISTEN to sales funnel radio already!by Grims40 from United States
Stephen bleeds marketing and sales funnels! You can’t go an episode or two before being hooked because he OVERDELIVERS. LISTEN and TAKE ACTION to his advice. He is one of the few that through word and deed gives all that he is doing, the context for why he is doing it, how it will work for you, what he is learning, etc. to get YOU achieving your goals.
- Here's why everybody listens to Sales Funnel Radioby Mike Lazarus from United States
Stephen actually DOES what he SAYS. He used to be like most of us, trying to figure out how to make an extra $1,000/month. He tried a lot of the same things I personally tried myself. I think he said he started 15 businesses that FAILED. Something a lot of us can relate to. But then, one day, he discovered that "sales funnels" were the key to online business. Sales funnels are kinda like selling in person, but replicating that experience online. Once he figured out sales funnels were the key, he started building them for ALL KINDS OF BUSINESSES. I even heard that one guy has a sales funnel that sells "BigFoot Hunting Trips", and he sold like $50k. They work for all businesses. Eventually, Stephen got so good that he found himself sitting (and working) next to the king of selling online (a guy just like us that eventually sold over 100 million dollars online). He got the opportunity to study underneath the greatest marketer alive, and Sales Funnel Radio is a dramatic, energetic, endless series of mic drops and epiphanies that would light the beard of Zeus on fire. If you are trying to make an extra $1,000/month, or if you want to uncover the secrets that the Guru's hide, Stephen is exposing all their magic tricks and leading people like you and I towards the goalpost. Thank you Stephen, we love you!!!!
- The BEST in the industry?by Mike Lazarus from United States
When I first got introduced to MLM, it was when I was studying an internet marketer named Mike Dillard. Some of you may know him. Mike studied marketing, and he brought those concepts over to the MLM world, so that people like you and me don't have to talk to friends and family. Instead, we can unleash our secret set of marketing skills in an industry that needs them the most. THat was Mike Dillard, and he made a fortune helping MLM'ers like us. Now, here comes Steve Larsen with Secret MLM Hacks The reason I like steve is because of his background. He did the same thing that Mike DIllard did... He bridged the gap between what MLM'ers wanted and what they truly needed (marketing skills). He studied under the best sales guy on the freaking planet, and we get the unique opportunity to see the MLM industry from a perspective that our competitors never will. Keep up the knowledge bombs man.
- Great Topics, Engaging Hostby Matthew Lafantaisie from Canada
Steve, thank you for this podcast. You give out great info, and keep me tuned in the whole time.
- Steve is the Rosetta Stone to Learning Sales Funnelsby mywordscreate from United States
DON'T LISTEN to this podcast if you hate money. I've been in the ClickFunnels world for about two years now, attended the last Funnel Hacking Live (2018), and have learned a lot but none of that compares to listening to Sales Funnel Radio. I'm the type of person to watch a movie once, read a book once, listen to a podcast just once but all of that goes out the window whenever I hear a Sales Funnel Radio episode. I routinely find myself going back and taking numerous notes with each listen because Stephen drops so many gold nuggets. I highly recommend subscribing and listening to this podcast. Why go to college and get a marketing degree when you can listen to Stephen teach you REAL WORLD marketing for FREE??
- Awesome content check out content Machineby 4jimg from United States

I like Steve's positive attitude and energetic spirit, but I keep listening because he's gaining a lot of real-world experience and results and he share's specific, actionable information. No bait and switch. It's obvious he cares about people and loves to add value.
- By far the most value packed...by LAKIEV from United States
This podcast is a must for those who are not only in MLM but also for those who’s getting started online in general! What Steve shares applies to all businesses. And if you’re not using tactics and strategies he is sharing. I highly suggest reconsidering that! Merging online marketing with offline marketing is the most genius way to build business in 21st century. The internet is a gift and this podcast is just as much of a gift too. Love tuning in to these shows and updating my feed when I get ‘Story-thirsty’. Steve is the man! #Thankful
- WARNING: This podcastby iFeDz from United States
Can make you a successful marketer and salesperson... been following Steve for a couple months now and it is insane the amount of free stuff he gives away, insane amounts of value. He goes fully inline with the law of reciprocity, he gives so much valuable stuff away free that people (like myself) are trying to pay for random things in return because he hasn’t charged us for a dang thing! Keep it up Steve, love the podcast and the courses I’ve bought.
- Wowby josh pather from United States
Thanks so much for taking time to make and share everything. I like the fact that it’s not just all about funnels but other lessons mixed in. Straight fire!!! ?????

- Brings entertainment, and great value all in one!by Leroy0101 from Australia
Not often do you find somebody who is so genuinely humble, but still so freakishly skilled at what they do! I have found every episode to be entertaining and filled with information that is chock full of value! I’ve learnt so much about sales, marketing and funnels just from these episodes that I can’t believe that he just gives it out for FREE! His honesty, genuineness and likeable obsessive geekiness makes this one of my favourite podcast on my list of many! Lee Hilder from Australia.
- This Podcast will be #1 in this category, mark my words!by Kdoggeditor from United States
A lot of podcasts out there just graze the surface when it comes to sharing the marketing gold, the tips, the tricks, the techniques. They stay about 1000 feet up and never dive deep so their listeners can walk away with actual actionable items. This podcast is the complete opposite of every podcast I have ever listen to. Stephen doesn’t hold back, he drops the gold and more. I am binge listening to every episode and absolutely loving it. Why would you not want to listen to something that would put more money in your bank account? Just one or two of his simple tips can do that. Thanks Stephen for the wisdom my man!

- Holy crap this is a lot of free valueby Noah "RJ" Lenz from United States
I LOVE listening to SFR whenever I am doing something else. If I see that notification pop up, I run to the podcast app and start listening! I am honestly SHOCKED why he gives all this value away for FREE. I would make sure you download every episode and listen to them now, because I am guessing at some point and time he may charge for this.

- Listen To This Podcast (Unless You Hate Money)by Nicky4021_2 from United States
Steve has the rare ability to break down sales funnels in a way that not only makes sense, but in a way that also makes it stupid simple to implement what he's teaching to grow your business. Unless you hate money...you should put on your fat pants this weekend, snuggle up on your couch with a notebook in hand, and binge on every single episode of this podcast ?
- STEAL THIS PODCAST!by Ezra Child from United States
Steve delivers exactly what he promises... The Secrets of biggest marketers of our time. I am not sure how he gets away with it, or why the Master Minds he has attended haven’t put a hit out for Steve yet. All I can say is DOWNLOAD all of these episodes while you still can! Steve spends a great deal of time going into immense detail of today’s most POWERFUL marketing strategies (Probably more than he should!) Then Steve breaks down these concepts so that YOU CAN UNDERSTAND it and how to apply it to your own business. Honestly, these podcasts should be their own course... and Steve is probably crazy for not charging THOUSANDS for them (And we would be happy to pay it!) Hurry, before the Millionaire Marketers shut him down or Steve comes to his senses and realizes the IMMENSE VALUE he is giving away!! Get this Podcast while it’s still FREE!

I have come across a LOT of marketing podcasts and Steve’s is truly one of a kind! You either get a podcast that has lots of knowledge but delivered in a monotone and boring way or a podcast that is delivered in a exciting way with amateur knowledge. Sales Funnel Radio covers both and goes ABOVE and BEYOND. If you are looking for your next BREAKTHROUGH in Sales Funnels, you absolutely do not want to miss this. If you do, I can guarantee you are leaving money on the table. I’ve taken pages and pages of notes already and still counting. Cheers, Mike
- Compelling contrarian contentby Mark from Kiama from Australia
Wow! This content is so compelling. In Secret MLM Hacks Steve has developed a proven concept that turns the traditional MLM building model, of make a list and badger and bother your family friends until they submit and join your downline, on its head. Steve has inspired me to do the same. Thank you, Steve, I’m forever grateful.

- It's rare that you come across standout talent and breadth of knowledge like Stephen Larsenby Ben_Willson from United States
Finally! Stephen Larsen has entered into the "teaching" world. His understanding of online marketing and driving traffic is truly remarkable; and for the first time he's sharing his "secrets" (which are no longer secrets) with the world. I've known Stephen for a long time and have watched him immerse himself daily into learning how to effectively deliver the RIGHT traffic to businesses, but also how to utilize that traffic and turn them into (repeat) paying customers. Stephen isn't just another guy telling you "theoretical (un-tested) strategies" of Internet marketing, but a guy who's actually obsessed with finding the best result-oriented solutions; He's pivoted enough times that he's found the 'magic formula'.

00:14 If you're like me, you know MLM is an amazing opportunity to grow a real asset for yourself, but you also see that there are huge issues starting to emerge, like why haven't big MLMs let tactics change in over 30 years? Or why have they been cutting commissions smaller and smaller, or even how dumb is it that old MLM rules say you'll get in trouble when you use the internet to grow your team? These are some of the burning questions we all face today. This podcast will show you how real MLMers like us are waging war on the old dying methods, and we aren't cheating by only bugging uninterested family and friends. Follow this podcast while I expose the shocking methods I'm using to build my 10,000-person downline, and get people begging to join my team daily. Here's the new tactics without all those old rusty MLM shackles.
01:03 My name is Steve Larsen, and welcome to Secret MLM Hacks Radio. [inaudible]. I guess this is true for any single product that you've ever purchased ever. Actually how many guys have ever bought something? I don't know if you've, you've probably done this, I've done this a ton of times, where you get really, really excited by a product and you're like, this is going to be so cool. And you go and you buy it and you wait and you wait and you wait and it shows up. It shows up in the mail and then you never use it. Right? And you've never, ever actually opened up the product. I mean, maybe you've opened it, but you haven't really done with it what you thought it would. Right? This happens a lot of times in a health space or it happened a lot of times in I mean in any product, truly, right?
01:41 Because you have to learn about the product. You've got to learn how you can fit it into your everyday life if it's a routine thing. It's one of the challenging aspects of any business. You have to understand that the bit like when you're walking around and you're selling your product, your MLM product, your network marketing product, whatever it is that you're selling, it's one thing to sell it to an individual, right? And you might be like, yeah, Steven, I've sold a product before in the past and I totally understand that. But that's actually not what I'm saying. When you sell the product to somebody, that's half the battle. It's a completely different thing to get them to use the product right now I've heard people in the past say things like, you know, if they use the product or not, that's up to them. And that's not really what we're going for.
02:23 But the reality is is that it's a danger if your customers don't actually use the product. If your customers don't use the product, it means that you don't get any testimonials because you're not getting any success stories. People think that it doesn't do everything that you thought it would. People don't think it could do everything that you say it does because they're not using it, so they don't get success with it. So it's one thing, like I said, for you to sell the product, that's completely another thing for them to actually go use it. And because of that, onboarding systems are the best way. So when you're going out and about and you're actually selling the product, the easiest thing for you to go do is learn how to onboard people, not just sell them. In fact, on the flight over here, so I'm actually standing here in Kentucky and I'm actually at the Pruvit headquarters.
03:07 And I don't care what MLM you're in, but I'm in prove it. Okay. And I have am saying this because we were doing some Google keyword research and one of the top keywords was what MLM is Steve VARs and actually in [inaudible]. So apparently you guys all want to know. So anyway, I am telling you that I am not pitching you at all, but I'm just telling you. So this building, that building the one across the street that went over there, it's all proven and they've got a big building over in the side. It's massive. They're thinking about doing in any way. Hopefully, I can say all that. But anyway, so one of the things that we're doing here that with them though is improving the onboarding systems on the flight over here. I was thinking about my own systems and I was like, okay, I need a sales system or sales funnel.
03:48 Right? And I, and obviously I've got that. I was like, now what's the next system I could go improve. Okay, I could improve a system around onboarding. I'm like, okay, okay, awesome. Now I could improve a system around the use of the product. So there's really like three stages that I've broken this down into. And it's one of the reasons why it's worked so well in the past for us is because I have a specific unique individual standalone system around selling any product, not just recruiting, right? And not just in network marketing or MLM. I mean, any product, any product I sell, there's a dedicated written out system, any product I sell, there's a dedicated written out onboarding system, right? And then any system or any product I sell, there is a dedicated written out like, like usage system as well. Right. And hopefully this is making sense to you and it's because the reason I'm saying this because we all freak out, right?
04:44 Or I should say not all of us, but it's very common for new people in any business or any MLM, any network marketing company, whatever, when they're in, it's really common for people to freak out over the sale. Oh my gosh, I'm not a salesman. I'm not going to be successful in this thing. I'm not a salesman. I'm not a salesman. Right. And people get really nervous about that. Understandably. And I'm not trying to like add more heat on or like say like, Whoa, that's not it. Like, but if you're not, if you don't have a dedicated written out process of what you do post-purchase, right? If you don't have a dedicated written out process not just post-purchase, but then even further than let's say a few months down the road, you're still helping them incurred a, you're still encouraging them to go buy the thing.
05:27 You know, it, it actually dramatically affects your sales, right? You can't get testimonials very easy with people who've never actually used the product. You can't go get a, you can't go use, you know, the results you can. People start to wonder why they're paying you. You have to encourage people to actually use the thing that they're, that they're buying. And that might sound like a no-duh experience, but this is such a big deal that if you go look at a lot of old, not even old, even current MLMs, one of the biggest ways they've grown is by making their onboarding system, their sales system. All right, so Stephen, what do you mean by that? And I apologize. I feel like I'm all over the place on this episode right here. But just follow with me here in a second while I, while I say this, this is a problem that all businesses face.
06:14 So how did click funnels get around this issue? Right? Click funnels is an amazing platform. It's an incredibly powerful platform. But what's the biggest issue that they run into? You got to know a little bit, right? It's not just like, like click funnels requires the user to be a marketer in order to use it, right? And so click funnels is like, Whoa, let's not be like, let's act like, let's not act like that's not the case, right? So what they did is they created this thing called the one funnel way challenge and the challenge basically in a very finite period of time, walks people through how to use the software, have success with the software. And then at the end of it says, why don't you just keep using the software? And it's one of the greatest sales and onboarding things at the exact same time.
07:03 By combining the sales system and the onboarding system, it's where the secret power of this whole thing is, right? And so that, that, that's the whole purpose of what I'm going through with this here. So what are we doing here? Exact the same thing we're trying to create and think through other things that we can put out there that are help onboard people and create these systems at the exact same time. And that's, that's exactly the purpose of the visit. Okay. So there is a challenge that brings me, it's like a lot of big MLMs. One of the ways that they blew up is by challenges, right? And he creates this challenge for people to go use the product. It's very good for product sales and eventually, you know, guiding into actual recruitment. But anyway, I hope this makes an episode. I hope this episode makes sense for you guys today.
07:48 I know, I feel like I'm a little bit all over the place with it. But this idea right there, if you want to behave like an actual company, if you want them to turn MLM into an actual asset, if you want people to have the greatest chance of success with you and actually continue to purchase whatever it is that you sell, I don't care what MLM you're in, I don't care what you sell, gait, that's your, don't vet your own call. I'm not here to, to, you know, talk about that at all. I'm obviously here in front of Pruvit and I'm obviously part of [inaudible]. But what I want you to know is like if you don't have some dedicated process around this, you set up your customers, not just you, but your customers for failure. I mean, can you imagine if like I just bought a new office chair, one of my favorite things to go do.
08:27 I like to build stuff. I love building my office chairs or any office equipment. I like building furniture. I like that, but I can't imagine what it would be like if it showed up without a manual on how to build it. You know what I mean? Build the manual, whatever that is that you are selling, make sure that whatever it is that you sold also comes with an instruction manual. And if that is a bite size, day by day challenge sweet. If it's some other sequence that walks them through the onboarding. Awesome. probably about two or three years ago, there was something that ClickFunnels was doing called ignite your funnel. And the whole point of it was that when somebody would get a ClickFunnels account, it was a day by day walk through system for 21 days, it'd be a 21 day ignite your funnel challenge.
09:13 And there were bite-size. There's like, okay, welcome. First of all, your ClickFunnels account. Today what we want you to do is go log in. Great, good job. It's like what? And that was it. And day number two, the next email would come out. OK, day number two, what we want you to do is log back in like you did yesterday and go click add funnel and then just choose one of the types that pops up. Okay, awesome. Great job. And that might sound like too bite-size and too simple, but you have to keep your product consumption simple. Okay. Then the next day it was like, okay, now that you've done that, I want you to go in and you're going to click on edit funnel. You know, it was like these little tiny bite size things that increased the consumption of the product, got somebody in the habit of using it and also [inaudible] taught them how to use it at the exact same time.
09:58 Super key, super key. And big MLM has big companies who have gotten even larger. This is one thing they figured out is that their onboarding process, not that it needs to be an email campaign, all this stuff, but it could be, and it's one of the most powerful things, but that will remove you from the business as you try to figure those things out and do that. Does that make sense? Okay. these bite-size little things are one of the best ways that we will create endorphins. You guys, if you've heard of some of my most previous episodes, that was probably like a month ago. There's some episodes I was talking about when the site, when the sale is over, it's more about the psychology of the sale. Well, one of the happy feel-good drugs that we feel in our bodies and our minds is endorphins. Endorphins are actually created… The CEO of Pruvit back there... Endorphins are the feel-good drug. Okay, there's a feel-good drug, but I have it's, it's the drug of work reward. And so by having customers and brand-new people when they come in and they purchase, grab.. Yes Sir, on the way.
11:04 But by having, by having these little tiny bite-sized steps that new customers can take, it causes those feel-good drugs. And now, good hormones are associated with your product. So that's the whole point. This episode guys, you got to go in and create an onboarding system. I gotta go finish building a funnel, create an onboarding system, keep it simple, keep it bite-sized and manageable. Don't do a big dissertation. We're talking bite-size things, that causes feel-goods, and your onboarding becomes part of your recruiting process. Guys, hopefully you enjoyed the episode. We'll talk to you later. Bye.
11:35 All right. Here's the deal. Every business thrives on cashflow and leads, and without cashflow and leads, the business dies, right? Hear me clearly. MLM is no different. You own a position in a business, which means you need a system in place for cashflow and leads to come to you and your downline.
