🥷 Funnel Breakdowns #22: Creator Wizard

Here’s something most creators and solopreneurs get completely wrong about monetization: You don’t need an audience of 1,000,000 followers to build a profitable, 7-figure business online. And the creator we’re going to funnel hack today is a great example of that. Meet Justin Moore, the founder of Creator Wizard. Over the past couple years, Justin has been building his mini-empire online by helping other creators land more, better paying sponsorships. And he’s done it with a fraction of the...

🥷 Funnel Breakdowns #20: Copyblogger

Hey, Funnel Ninja! We have a jam-packed edition today. But we’re doing something slightly different.

Now, there’s a few...

Hey, Funnel Ninja! Today we’ve got a special (and extremely tactical) edition.

🥷 Funnel Breakdown #19: Blaine "The Dating Coach"

One of my favorite tricks to get exposed to new ideas: Scrolling TikTok with my wife. Every time we spend some time watching TikToks together I learn about new trends or walk away with an insight for something we could explore in our business. But there’s another amazing benefit to it: It also helps me find niche creators who’re crushing it that I would otherwise not come across. That’s how I found Excel with Grant, for example. And it’s also how I first stumbled upon today’s creator: Blaine...

🥷🏻 Funnel Breakdown #16: The AI Solopreneur

Here’s a crazy stat: In 2023, more than 3,100 AI newsletters were created on beehiiv alone. source As ChatGPT’s popularity skyrocketed over the last year, more and more people jumped on the AI newsletter train. Now, here’s the thing: Most of these newsletters will die within the next 2 years. Why? Because they have no moat or unique differentiator—and 99% of this content has been commoditized.
