The 4 Pillars to Solar Domination (interview with James Ramos)
James is a family guy who has seen the importance of doing the things you are passionate about to spend more quality time with the people that matters. He knows the pain points in working 12-13 hours a day chasing money. He was not happy with the old process and most of the time it’s not working for him. But after he has cracked the code, he is now able to generate thousands of leads and spend time with his family. James is now using the power of technology to get sale and talk with leads since the traffic is bad in the Bay Area. On this episode, James will show us why it’s important to invest in yourself in the things that you are passionate about. He will also discuss the 4 pillars of solar sales that will not only help you improve sales efficiency, but also in generating leads through social media and referrals.

The Cheat Code for Solar Lead Gen (interview with Bill Murphy)
Bill sold gym membership before and it was going okay and then last 2013, he went to the Solar Industry without any sales background. He had an unforgettable first day of work but took off from there. In 2014, they sold about $8.5 Million on his first 12 months! Bill sees digital marketing as a necessity. He used to buy leads before but had a problem with pitching Solar to leads. So educated himself how to duplicate landing pages. It became successful that they sold 20 to 30 sales a month. Bill repurposes the same thing that worked and educated the solar industry on how it’s done to solar businesses and it’s been a big hit! Right now, everybody is obsessed with the new shiny objects but the problem is those are all engines, just tool. But the hard part is to get the people land on your page. But Bill just focuses on the salesmanship and targetting. They do a “done with you” session. They craft a customized campaign that is speaking intimately to a specific market that will make people stop and say “, Hey that’s me.” They teach solar businesses on how to understand the Facebook algorithm.

How to market solar like a boss (Steve Larsen Interview)
Steve Larsen is a family guy in his late 20's who learned how to sell more by building sales funnels. During college he created his own business helping businesses with their sales funnels. There's nothing like the thrill of a converting sales funnel in full automation! He first got into internet sales funnels when I was selling door-to-door...yup! Pest control. As they’d drive out to our selling area he’d keep looking up at the billboards on the highway and think, "whoa, people call those asking to buy! There's gotta be a way for me to find people who are looking for pest control". So he starting putting little classified ads all over and his phone started blowing up with sales. Before he knew it he was selling ebooks, insurance, survival gear, water ionizers, and more all over the internet. Sales funnels became his self-taught obsession. This led him to become Russell Brunson’s right hand man for the next two years learning from him and some of the best internet marketers in the world. He then took what he taught into his own business and did a million dollars in the first 13 months of business.
