In this episode, you’ll hear a conversation with Ethan Sigmon, who is the founder and CEO of Opesta, a Facebook Messenger marketing automation tool. I asked Ethan to come back on the podcast to share a really cool Facebook Messenger case study of a campaign he worked on with our mutual friend, John Lee Dumas of Entrepreneurs on Fire, who also happens to be a past guest of The Art of Paid Traffic.
Ethan reveals the strategy they used to help John become one of the top affiliates for Russell Brunson’s Expert Secrets book campaign, topping huge names like Tony Robbins in the process.
He shares why this strategy worked so well, and how you could be doing the same thing in your business right now. If you’re a regular listener of the show you know that I’m a huge fan of marketing with Facebook Messenger, which is another reason why I wanted to bring Ethan back to talk more about it.
