I’m very excited to share with you today’s episode all about how to make strategic noise.
I’m gonna share with you a video ad we created recently, AND teach you a little bit more about the script that we used to make it.
I know I’ve talked about this a little bit in a previous episode (or two) about how we wrote the script for themlmfunnel.com ad.
Go to themlmfunnel.com if you wanna look at it.
But I’m actually gonna put it right here in this episode!
And the ONLY reason is because I want you to watch what I’m doing.
I couldn’t care less if you actually go get the thing that it’s promoting.
What I want you to see is how I’m using things that people are already familiar with in their ads.
HOW TO MAKE STRATEGIC NOISE
I have been studying more P.T. Barnum…
And if you do not know who he is, P.T. Barnum is famous for his circus that he created. He’s The P.T. Barnum Circus.
But he didn’t start doing that till later on in his life…
He had a museum that he would promote… And he’s kind of a serial entrepreneur.
One of the things that P.T. Barnum was most known for was his bizarre ways of gaining attention.
And to be a marketer is to be an attention-getter.
THAT’S what I’m gonna show you guys in this ad.
One of the things that he did way back in the mid 1800s when he had this museum was, he went and he found this homeless guy…
He walked up to the homeless guy, and he told him to:
- Every hour, on the hour, several times a day, carry these bricks…
- He was supposed to put a brick on the corner of all these streets around the museum…
- And walk around, every so often, throughout the day, take one brick and replace it with the one that’s on another street corner…
- Then walk to the next corner, and replace that brick with another one…
- And go to the next corner, without saying anything…
… That was it.
Then he was supposed to go drink and take a nap.
It was only 30 minutes before this bizarre act was causing attention around his museum, and thus he would get more sales.
I think he paid him 15 cents an hour to do this.
He did A LOT of really bizarre, random things. He was the first one to bring an ELEPHANT to America.
He’s the first one to do a lot of things.
And what he was great at was using strategic noise.
MAKING A VIDEO AD FOR STRATEGIC NOISE
I believe the world is noisy already… I’m not telling you to make strategic noise for noise’s sake.
However, to be a marketer…
- Multi-level marketer
- Network marketer
… You are a marketer, but the industry is mis-named.
It is largely mis-named, because they’re like, “You can only use these kinds of noise.”
And it’s not really strategic noise… It’s like a whisper.
I want you to see how I am creating noise.
This will make sense when you actually watch it.
I’m doing bizarre things… And you don’t need an explanation.
People NEED curiosity in their lives. They WANT excitement.
I challenge you: To watch what I’m doing and how I’m orchestrating it.
HINT: Don’t stop when you see me get to the offer 😉
I strongly encourage you to go and watch the YouTube version of this podcast episode because you’ll actually SEE the ad…
- The jump cuts
- How fast we did
I had a professional video ad team follow me around for a day. We shot this ad and we’ve been going back and forth on different cut styles, when to take this out, and put this in, and what kind of words to put on the screens etc.
I’m using an actual script in my head… And then I’m doing a few weird, bizarre things that make no sense for the sake of gaining attention.
MLM VIDEO AD
In the ad, I’m also making fun of a few things that are widely known inside of MLM.
Q: Why would I do that?
A: Because they’re widely known inside of MLM.
One of my favorite Shark Tank episodes was where they turned down funding for this guy because… They loved his product, they liked him, they thought it was amazing.
BUT the only reason why none of them funded him is because of this…
This is what he said. “I like it, I like you, it’s amazing. The only issue is it would cost millions of dollars to educate the market, in order for them to buy this.”
I was like, “Oh man, that’s a powerful statement right there.”
You don’t have to be this prolific genius. The market will tell you what’s already known.
If you’re like, “How do I make ads for this or that?”, “How do I gain attention?”, “How do I gain more noise?”
You need to join in the place where they already are, and then take them to a new spot.
Watch the ad and I want you to do something for me…
When you learn something cool or observe something, please pause it and take notes.
One of the ways I learned how to write scripts in my early days was to watched A LOT of videos. I would press play and then press pause and write it down.
Q: Did that take few hours?
A: Yeah, it did. Actually, sometimes it’d take a few days.
But I internalized it on such a deep level. It meant I could replicate it and do the same, which is why we’re doing all this.
Take out a piece of paper.
LEARN FROM THIS VIDEO AD
What I’m good at is causing buying emotions.
When you start to feel the buying emotions, pause and take note as to why you’re feeling the buying emotion.
This is one of the greatest educations I could give you on this podcast.
Make notes when you:
- Start to feel the buying emotions
- Learn something new
- When you see something bizarre
I’m doing this to fight false beliefs and poke fun of certain things.
But there’s a spot where I switch gears and start pitching. Watch that.
Try and answer these questions:
- Why am I pitching what I am?
- Who am I pitching it to?
- Who do you think my target buyer is?
… Thinking this way turns you into a marketer.
You DID NOT become a marketer because you joined MLM.
I needed to turn you into a marketer.
Dissect this ad and go slow. Watch what I do to create scarcity and urgency.
What do I do to walk them through buying?
What do I do afterwards for all the knee-jerk reactions I know people are gonna have when they watch it.
Watch it the whole way through… Do it a few times because it’s very, very powerful.
It’s gonna be powerful for you seeing how us marketers actually orchestrate strategic noise.
THE MLM FUNNEL VIDEO AD
Is success in MLM even possible today?
Well, let me ask you this….
Will this TV blow up with four pounds of explosives under it?
I’m Steve, and MLM is stuck in the ’90s!
HELLO, the Internet is here!
MLM is loaded with old and outdated methods, like…
- The three-way phone call!
“Hey, you wanna make some money? I don’t know how it works, but you gotta talk to this guy. Let me three-way you in.”
OR making a huge list of your friends and family that are uninterested and bugging them…
The next question I have to answer is, “What island will I buy?!”
OR have you ever attended one of those home parties that turns out to be fake?
“Thanks all for coming to my party. I can’t wait for you all to buy my product and fuel my future and retirement, ’cause I really haven’t learned how to sell.”
“This party sucks!”
I’m totally kidding… But serious.
VIDEO AD FOR NETWORK MARKETING SECRETS
The point is that us Internet marketers are playing the MLM game completely different than you’ve likely been taught.
So to be clear, YES, I am in an MLM and I’m actively building…
And YES, I’m actually using the Internet to do so.
That whole thing that you can’t use the Internet in your MLM…
… It’s how I’m using the Internet and Facebook and funnels that might surprise you.
While I personally sell a lot of programs and courses about my own MLM methods, the purpose and point of this video is to show you another new fascinating book that will help walk you into modern MLM.
It’s called Network Marketing Secrets and it’s by Russel Brunson.
While old-school MLM tactics can work, it’s like putting Han Solo against Superman.
Come on, CGI is here.
DIFFERENT WAYS TO MAKE STRATEGIC NOISE
We do MLM DIFFERENTLY.
Network Marketing Secrets will teach you how we’re really recruiting online, automated, without talking to anybody.
Q: Steve, why are you doing this?
A: Well, the hope is that you go buy this book, make fat stacks of cash with it, and then you can use some of that money to buy my programs.
What I’m gonna do is, I’m actually going to bribe you to buy this book through my affiliate link…
Let’s go check out these bonuses I got for you guys so that I can ethically bribe you to come get this.
Here’s what you guys are gonna get when you guys get the Network Marketing Secrets book by clicking the link down below.
1. You guys are gonna get the Recruiting Funnel video course.
One of the things that I’ve become known for is how I recruit, and while I’ve been filming this video ad in front of you guys right now, I’ve had people joining my downline automatically.
If you guys wanna see how I do that, I recorded my screen and how I actually set up these recruiting funnels.
The benefit of that is that this took me a couple years to figure out in all the finer points.
You guys are literally gonna watch me, in front of a live audience, go build my recruiting funnel – My auto-recruiting funnel.
Super cool, right?
Total value: $497
I’m pumped for you guys to have it.

- Back office works
- Products work
- What the bonus structure is like
All the stuff that everybody asks anyway!
What I did is, I filmed a course walking them through that…
And then I was like, “Well, what if I was to give everybody in my downline the recruiting funnel and all these things as well?”
What you’Re gonna see is the course that I hand off and is automatically given to my downline so that they’re auto-trained.
This has truly become an automated asset for me.

So, congrats. Throw a party because you’re about to learn how big MLMers actually do this.
THE MLM FUNNEL WITH STEVE LARSEN
The biggest question I get is: “Steve, how are you using the internet for your personal MLM today?”
To be clear, I am, but it’s HOW that matters, and it’s HOW that you’re probably interested in.
Facebook doesn’t easily let you drive ads to MLM, and most MLMs won’t let you say their name on the internet, which is stupid.
Despite that, I am using the internet to grow my personal downline and sell products.
MLM is changing, and you’re probably feeling that, right? It’s why I created a mini-course… To show you HOW I’m doing this all today.
It’s called The MLM Funnel and you can get it at themlmfunnel.com.
I’m doing this because you might not know WHERE to start in all of this and, secondly, because there’s a cool new book by Russell Brunson called Network Marketing Secrets that I want you to go get.
He’s a cool guy, so I’m talking about this book a lot lately. I’m also going to give you a little bribe so you go get the book through my link.
How evil of me.
When you go to themlmfunnel.com and get Russell’s new book, Network Marketing Secrets, I’m going to give you my Pre-built Recruiting Funnel Template, the Hack MLM Downline Onboarding Course, which is how I auto-train my downline when they join my team.
ALSO, a discount ticket to my next event called OfferMind so that you can learn to outvalue your upline and downline.
If you want all this for FREE, just go to themlmfunnel.com now and get a crash course into prebuilt funnel templates that I’m using with my own downline now.
Again, just go to themlmfunnel.com and buy Russell Brunson’s new book there, and I’ll send you all those bonuses for free.
