S4E10: The Art of Automation with Marketing Automation Expert Chris Dillon

S4E10: The Art of Automation with Marketing Automation Expert Chris Dillon
Doug interviews Chris Dillon, the automation expert who shares his secrets to success. Chris reveals how setting clear goals and implementing clever automation strategies can transform your business and personal life. Discover the power of creating "Mickey Boat moments" for your loved ones and learn how to achieve your dreams while enjoying the journey. KEY TAKEAWAYS  Automation removes regular tasks and sets clear expectations with prospects, nurturing them through the sales process without removing the human touch.Setting specific, measurable goals with a deadline helps break down the steps needed to achieve them and removes the pressure of daily targets.AI will fundamentally change many aspects of work, but it's an opportunity to utilise it to make life easier rather than a threat to jobs.Creating meaningful experiences and memories for loved ones, or "Mickey Boat moments," is a powerful motivator for achieving business success.Passion for what you do is essential for overcoming the challenges of running a business and staying motivated.Understanding that prospects have lives outside of your business and making it easy for them to engage with you is crucial for converting leads.Small, consistent improvements (the "1% task") can lead to significant changes over time, so focus on long-term progress rather than short-term gains.Don't bring people into your life who don't align with your core values, even if they offer financial benefits.   BEST MOMENTS "I class [automation] as two different things. One is the removal of regular tasks... and secondly, it's the act of using good automation to set really clear expectations with prospects and not removing the human from the process."   "My fundamental purpose is bringing those moments, more moments to myself, more moments to my loved ones, and more moments to the good people that I surround myself with. That's what drives me."   "People massively underestimate what they can do in five years and massively overestimate what they can do in one." "If you're setting a goal for the sake of setting a goal... if you don't have a passion for what is going to get you to that goal, then you'll never get there because there's so much about running a business that isn't easy." "Too many business owners think, right, they're not getting back to me. They're not picking up the phone. They must not be interested. It's like, no, they just have a life. And they don't care about your phone call more than their life."   EPISODE RESOURCES Chris Dillon is an expert in marketing automation and customer journeys, including WhatsApp automation. https://chris-dillon.co.uk/ https://www.linkedin.com/in/chris-dillon-tma/ https://www.facebook.com/chrisdillonTTD https://demo.themarketingautopilots.com/general-demo   VALUABLE RESOURCES Website: http://dougbennett.co.uk/ Email: doug@dougbennett.co.uk LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/financialdoug/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/FinancialDoug Facebook Wealth Tribe: https://join.dougbennett.co.uk/ Download Your "Ten-Step Guide To Financial Freedom" Here: https://bit.ly/Struggle-Success BOOKS: Goals Do Come True is now live and available to buy on Amazon: https://amzn.to/3phcy6Z Think Simple, Win Big is now live and available to buy on Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Think-Simple-Win-Big-Business/ Enjoy, and come back for the latest podcast each Wednesday.

Discover how to recognise conditioning, embrace your authentic nature, and achieve success on your own terms in this fascinating discussion. KEY TAKEAWAYS Human Design is based on your time and place of birth and can help you understand your unique self and set goals aligned with your true nature.The five Human Design types are Generators, Manifesting Generators, Projectors, Manifesters, and Reflectors, each with different ways of setting and achieving goals.Conditioning from society, media, and upbringing can lead you to set goals that aren't aligned with your authentic self.Goals should be set according to your Human Design type - mastery for Generators, multi-passionate pursuits for Manifesting Generators, feeling-based for Projectors, impact-driven for Manifesters, and group-oriented for Reflectors.Recognising feelings of frustration, bitterness, anger, or disappointment can indicate you're out of alignment with your true self.Your body's intelligence is more powerful than your ego mind when making decisions.Balancing masculine and feminine energy is important when setting goals, regardless of gender.Human Design can help you make decisions based on your body's intelligence rather than your ego mind. BEST MOMENTS "Human design is the most accurate personality test that you will ever take”.  "Sometimes it's, that's a masculine way of doing things and, you know, even as a woman, that's not a problem to have a masculine, you know, sort of goal."

Together, they explore the world of goal setting, business growth, and the power of energetics. Rebecca shares her unique insights on creating profitable ventures while maintaining a positive mindset, offering listeners valuable strategies to manifest success in their own lives.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Traditional funnels are outdated; businesses need to evolve their strategies to match customer behaviour and leverage various platforms for lead generation.Aligning your mindset and energy with your financial goals is crucial for business success, as it helps attract the right opportunities and people.Successful entrepreneurs often have a unique energetic way of being that sets them apart, allowing them to navigate challenges with ease.Raising your frequency to match your desired results and maintaining an "in-flow" state can lead to better business outcomes and a more fulfilling life.When setting goals, start with the most expanded version of the impact you want to have, then work backwards and break it down into milestones.Providing value to others through your business is a form of altruism, as it uplifts your team, customers, and community.Rebecca's system for attracting over a million followers and selling six businesses involves getting in the zone, setting up the necessary structures, and staying in that zone.The key to happiness lies in changing your reaction to events, as a positive reaction leads to positive outcomes.   BEST MOMENTS  "It's like if you've ever, most people have read a book or done a course at some point in their lives. And I call it the Tony Robbins effect." "If you can bring the excitement you just had to the gaps, that's the magic, right?" "When you create a business, so long as you treat your people well. You are lifting all of the team around you. If you are providing some kind of a solution to customers, you are lifting them as well." "The moping around that humans do is entirely of our own creation, it's of our own intellect."   "There's people with amazing ideas and amazing concepts who just lack the how do you go from a job or a business that's not working for you into something that's profitable, where you're out there lit up, inspiring others, providing solutions.”   EPISODE RESOURCES Rebecca Page's upcoming courses, templates, and structures for attracting followers and creating successful businesses (available at https://rebeccajpage.com/) Free downloads, tools, and resources from Rebecca Page (available at https://rebeccajpage.com/)   VALUABLE RESOURCES Website: http://dougbennett.co.uk/ Email: doug@dougbennett.co.uk LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/financialdoug/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/FinancialDoug Facebook Wealth Tribe: https://join.dougbennett.co.uk/ Download Your "Ten-Step Guide To Financial Freedom" Here: https://bit.ly/Struggle-Success BOOKS: Goals Do Come True is now live and available to buy on Amazon: https://amzn.to/3phcy6Z Think Simple, Win Big is now live and available to buy on Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Think-Simple-Win-Big-Business/ Enjoy, and come back for the latest podcast each Wednesday.
