Our trip to Bali was a lot of fun. I had some amazing experiences. We went scuba diving off the coast of Nusa Penida and saw giant manta rays, turtles, and huge sunfish. We visited a temple in Ubud built around a natural spring. I got a big tattoo on my right leg that took 8 hours up in the jungles of Ubud. We went surfing in Seminyak. I got some fun skate sessions in at the skateparks. It was a blast.
...but today, we flew back to Bangkok, Thailand.
On the way, we got to enjoy the priority pass lounge in the Bali international airport for free thanks to our rewards credit cards. The lounge offered free food, drinks, and beer. Here I am squeezing in a broadcast email to my list just before our flight.
At the Priority Pass lounge, I got an email from Russel Brunson talking about how his 10X secrets course is closing. These are often the best emails for marketers selling information products because it creates scarcity and urgency. It's usually the last emails you'll send in a launch sequence, and if you've warmed up your leads enough, you'll push them over the fence.
The same goes for high-ticket drop shipping. You can send emails to your list with urgency and scarcity for your abandoned cart sequence and you are much more likely to close sales. The best thing about email marketing is that it can all be automated.
His 10X Secrets funnel is on point too. Once you pay for the initial $297 for the first content, he upsells his Closing Secrets course for another $297. Then, he offers a live event for $497. I bought the first two because I love Russel and I have learned so much from him and I truly believe I'll become very wealthy thanks to his advice, not just in money but in happiness and lifestyle freedom.
I've personally purchased and consumed his DotCom Secrets book, Expert Secrets book, 108 Split Tests book, Funnel Hacker Cookbook, Funnel Scripts, Funnel University, Software Secrets, and Perfect Webinar Secrets. I've learned a lot through his teachings and the same people who taught him as well. I use what I have learned to grow my online businesses and today we are doing better than ever before.
The flight was easy going and relaxing. It takes about 5-6 hours to fly from Bali to Bangkok. I got some planning done on the airplane and even wrote out some review articles that I'll be posting on the blog soon.
We arrived in Bangkok to beautiful blue skies and balmy humid air, just like it was when we left. We promptly got coconut water and snacks at the 7-eleven in the airport and called a Grab car for the ride home. It cost us about 350 baht, which is $10 USD. We are about an hour or so from the airport depending on traffic.
As soon as we got home it was straight to the shower, then I packed my stuff up and headed out to the local vegan restaurant Vegenerie. I love this spot because the food is really healthy and moderately priced. I eat tons of papaya salad and mushroom tom yum here all the time. Along with a cup of hot green tea, it's the best meal; very relaxing. Or, as they say in Thailand. Sabai Sabai.
I'm excited to get back into the swing of creating video content this week. I have plans to add a lot more content to my high-ticket drop shipping masterclass as well as my Youtube channel, podcast, and blog. I'm also figuring out my email marketing platform better so I can communicate more relevantly with each of my leads.
The most important takeaway from today was to stay focused, productive, motivated, and yet take breaks when you need to so you're always sharp and ready to move fast. Speaking of breaks, I'm going to go get a massage right now down the street. Talk soon.
