Snapchat Masks, Building a Funnel and Listening to Gary Vee

Sunday 24th of September – 01st of October 2017


Hi All

I hope you’ve all been having a great week.

This is something I’m going to be sharing with you every week, on a Sunday.

What I’m up to, on what motivates me, and the things I am enjoying,

I hope you enjoy


Here’s your weekly dose of “Weekly 5.”

In case you’ve missed it –

Snapchat have introduced new features and god there cool…

The App sensation Snapchat has surprised us once again. Have you ever heard of “Bit Emoji”, where you can create cartoon emojis out of yourself?

Dress them, shape them and even change their haircuts.

Well, Snapchat has gone one further and now when you take a snap, you can use a person’s face like a mask.

It’s just crazy stuff.

Messing around with it, I took Elon Musks face from a picture I have, off his book, by Ashlee Vance.

See it here on Instagram…


Other than that, Snapchat had an even cooler update.

Now you can record your Bit Emoji as if it were alive.

They are using AR (Augmented Reality) to do this, and they are doing it right. If you are wondering what it’s like, just think of “Pokémon Go that came out earlier this year.



What else will they come up with…? Facebook has a new feature for their India platform to help increase blood donations.

Facebook has come up with a lot of really good features lately.

One I’m really impressed with, is the feature where you can tell your friends and family you are ok in an emergency.

It was used for natural disasters like the hurricane just passed, and even for the terror attacks that happened in Europe.


What I’m doing at the moment –

During the last week, I was redeveloping my website.

I was using WordPress, and it was great but I thought to myself if I really want to Launch the brand of Me, social is what I need to focus on.

Using ClickFunnels, I created 4 pages,


  • Home Page
  • – About Page
  • – Tool Page
  • – Tool Page x2


The first thing I started off doing was, I made my Homepage just for Social Media, Chatbot and Email.

So, depending on how people want to consume my content, they will have different options to pick from.

Then, I re-created some pages I had on WordPress.

I made them even better, fixed the links, added in better images, videos and added in more context.

For other pages, like legal, terms & conditions, I created with Google Docs.

We all know that when you have a blog you can choose from a few different options, WordPress, Tumblr, Blogger, etc.

Over the last few weeks I’ve been using Medium, and so far, I’ve gotten more followers and subscribers in such a short space of time, compared to on WordPress.

I know this might affect my Google Rankings in the future, but I believe that this is the next step.

Google will still rank my posts on Medium, higher then they would on my own site.

And, my posts on Medium, I can leave an email capture link, so I can still collect emails. Which is one of the most important things to do as a marketer.

This week, I’ve even posted the “Weekly 5” on Medium, so more people other than the “Financial Freedom Forever” Community will see it and come on over to join us.



*There are posts, I will not share on Medium, they are kept exclusively for the Community.

So, if you’d like to go have a look and see what I’ve created, go to


A tip or advice from an Influencer –

This one is by the GaryVee himself.

“There’s a whole lot of attention focused on Instagram and other social networks on putting up pictures to do with watches, pretty girls on swan balloons in the pool, and champagne popping, private jets, elaborate vacations, trips with your girls, a highlight reel.

The truth is everybody’s going to fail, it’s super hard and the pressure is real. There’s been a lot of underlying suicide and depression in our space is not alluded to at all.”

This is very interesting from Gary Vaynerchuk. What you don’t see is that in the background the Work has been put in. People don’t see this, they think it just happens like that.

It doesn’t!


You’ve got to put in the work, the hard work to get to the place of posting pictures of amazing adventures and girls on swan balloons.


Don’t give up, if you focus plan and organize, it will happen.


One of the Most popular posts This Week on Financial Freedom Forever –

Was by Jason Elliot.

This post was very popular this week, where Jason gave some quality advice…

This is how it started —

Small Steps and Social Proof.

If you are building a team, or trying to attract others to your business/opportunity, you are going to need social proof of earnings, your friends earnings, your position on leader boards, and the value you bring to other groups. etc etc.

Believe you me, providing evidence of what you are doing and how much you are earning day by day, or week by week is not only showing your story, but also putting the bricks down on the foundations you have already layed. Don’t make it every post you do, but do share your success

If it’s early days and you don’t have your own proof, use your friends or teams or sponsors proof. Social proof is very powerful.
