So what is this dream car giveaway thing?

Let me explain…

So it was morning. Like I always do for my morning ritual, I was studying the vast world of the internets for some enlightening entertainment…

If you seek, sometimes you really do find.

As it happens, I found myself on a particular website. Now I’ve seen websites that have every gadget under the sun…

From luxurious $7k Kohler Numi toilets with bluetooth functionality and voice command options all the way up to $17k gold plated smart phones and $80k Megatrend speakers, to name a few.

But this was no smart phone gadget. This offer was about a car.

And not just any car either.

A dream car!

Hmmm. Hold on

Let’s rewind a bit…

You see, given that there’s internet scams everywhere and the fact I wasn’t thinking straight yet, I scrolled on hoping to find something better than badly-photoshopped images.

Then these words jumped out...

Win your dream car!

I mean, that’s what it said. As clear as day.

Winning a car? Hmmm.

How many offers are out there similar to this? One? Two? Ten? Too many to count?

There’s got to be some legit ones, right?

But the internets right now is definitely not the same as the internets back then.

Back then even talking about “earning money online” would result in horrified looks from your families and friends.

Thing are easier now. There are ways for you to make a living online, and it’s almost…

Infinite in its possibilities!

Can the dream car giveaway please include Mercedes Benz vans?

I could be wrong but it seems that more and more people are quitting their jobs and starting to build online businesses.

The more accessible it is to work online, the more people leave their jobs.

And if you can do what you love and get paid for it, who wouldn’t?

Anyway, that’s just my radical perspective on it all. 🙂

On that page this caught my eye...

So what’s your dream car then? (Todd Brown is on the right)

It’s funny. There’s a Todd Brown there. Now I don’t know Todd Brown personally.

But I know that he’s not some nobody.

He hosts a yearly event called MFA (Marketing Funnel Automation) where he shares tips on high level marketing; conversion, high price point stuff.

Stuff like how to increase LCV (Lifetime Customer Value), etc.

But yeah…

Todd Brown in a dream car giveaway?

The first thing I thought was “Is this some kind of well-made scam? How did they get Todd Brown in there?”

I began to take it more seriously (still with doubts), and scrolled down to 12 people who’ve received their “dream cars.”

And by the way, I also noticed that they run an A/B test on that page.

The second page that appears has like 60 people in it, not 12. (An A/B test allows you to test different pages on a website).

That’s like 60 people who have won a so called ClickFunnels dream car...

Ben Cummings and Jason Fladlien in the dream car lineup!

Whatever, right…

My eyes spotted two more names.

Ben Cummings and Jason Fladlien.

Now I don’t know Ben, but Jason Fladlien is like…

The go-to guru for webinars!

Fladlien would be the first to tell you that an information product with a sales letter converts well with a two digit price tag.

Throw in a webinar and you up that to a mid three digits price tag…

Generally speaking of course. 🙂

The idea of webinar and sales letter is simple. There are some theories behind matching those two things up.

They go into the realm of copywriting and it’s mostly always better to hire a good copywriter to do that for you.

But a scam with so many well known people in it?

Up to now every scam I saw was full of lousy editing, unfinished pages, cloned testimonials…

Guess I was wrong.

I realised after looking again from top to bottom that it wasn’t a scam, it’s actually a…

Real life ClickFunnels promotion!

Porsche Mission E - the future of electric vehicles is here!

If you’re wondering what ClickFunnels is then let me explain…

ClickFunnels is a software tool (actually more a tribe of enthusiasts) that helps simplify the delivery of products by providing a built-in, easy-to-use, funnel builder.

Kind of like the whole software as a service thing.

Kind of like how gazillions of us subscribe to online services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Spotify, etc…

In a nutshell, it means that you can build your…

Entire 'sales funnel' in one place!

Compared to a website, that funnel thing does the job much better.

Think about it.

You have a website and want to sell your product or service.

You naturally build a page to show what’s on offer.

To turn it into a working, hassle-free process for a customer, you have to integrate software and stuff.

Let’s say you have an ebook you want to sell for $97.00.

The whole process kind of looks like this:

  • People come to your sales page, read your words (the copy), and (hopefully) click on the “Buy Now” button.
  • Your page then asks them to pay $97 through PayPal or Stripe or whatever.
  • After payment, they receive an automated thank you email and a download link for the ebook.

You just sold your $97 product to them.


polestar dream car giveaway electric
Maybe you prefer the electric Polestar 2?

But did you just see what really happened?

There’s all this stuff that needs to be connected up in the background.

At the very least you need to integrate Paypal and an email marketing service like MailChimp or Aweber.

And if you want a webinar then you’ll need some software that integrates with the webinar stuff.

By the way, popular sites for webinar hosting are Vimeo and Wistia. They are not precisely software per se, but they add a bit more “adrenalin” to the workout.

Then you’ve got to make your website all secure.

Then you’ve got to set up some sort of credit card facility thing.

Now I don’t know about you but I really hate having to do all the tech stuff, and connect all them wires.

It’s like… do we really need to learn to code?

Can’t we just press some buttons, type in some text and be all good to go?

Bradman’s quote says it all…

90% of marketing doesn’t work because it doesn’t get done.

- Neil Bradman

Well the super cool thing about ClickFunnels is that it allows you to build the funnels in one place without connecting up all this fiddly, software stuff.

And that, my friend, is so…

Freakin’ convenient!

dream car giveaway tesla model x
That's settled then. I'll take the Tesla model X.

You don’t have to go out and find some services to help you do the work.

No need to do the integration yourself.

You actually get back some of those precious hours of your life!


The ClickFunnels page builder is so versatile you can use it to build opt in pages, sales pages, up-sell & down-sell pages etc) pretty much exactly how you want them to look and function.

And its autoresponder feature (automated email) is not to be underestimated either…

  • Email when they didn’t buy? Check.
  • Email when they bought A but didn’t buy B? Check.
  • Email when they tried doing some shady stuff? Check. (Nah, there’s nothing like this. I’m just kidding!)

But anyhoo…

Remember how we were talking about a dream car giveaway?

Well the dream car promotion thing is actually really smart.

Even the headline is enticing…

Join the ClickFunnels affiliate program and let us buy your DREAM CAR for you!

You might be thinking there’s got to be a catch!

Maybe nothing is free under the sun.

Yes, nothing is free under the sun. Every free thing comes with a price - that could be your time or your sweat even if it’s only a one dollar hamburger.

And we are talking about (at least) a five digit car here

Who in their right mind, would give you a car, much less an expensive car for FREE?

You guessed it.

No one.

Most of the time (based on my own carefully prepared Youtube statistics!) people would prefer to make videos about cars than actually give a car to you! 🙂

So what’s the catch then?

It’s pretty simple. Lets quote ClickFunnels verbatim:

Get just 100 new ClickFunnels users… and we’ll cover the payments on YOUR dream car!

electric mercedes dream car giveaway
Hmm the electric EQC Mercedes Benz looks good too.

Now, anyone who reads and doesn’t drool over that sentence is either Bill Gates-kind of rich or already set up with an amazing recurring passive income.

So it sounds pretty simple right?

It is simple. It’s like saying “If you want to get rich, just rob some banks and you’ll be set for life.” 🙂

I’m not sure that’s how life works now, although back in 1950 Willie Sutton might have disagreed...

When asked about his criminal career, he said “because that's where the money is!"

But anyways…

To be clear…

The 'dream car' is free in that you don’t pay for it with your own hard earned coin.

Basically you earn the dream car 'payment' when you have 100 people signed up to ClickFunnels (through your ClickFunnels affiliate link).

Which begs the question

How do you become a ClickFunnels affiliate?

You need to be a ClickFunnels affiliate in order to win a dream car.

Well the good news is the minute you create your ClickFunnels account, you automatically become a ClickFunnels affiliate.

(ClickFunnels costs $97.00 /mo or $297.00 /mo, depending on the plan).

But all is not lost.

You can also sign up to become a ClickFunnels affiliate without having to actually use ClickFunnels.

Which is kinda good if you’re not ready to purchase ClickFunnels yet.


Like we said, a ClickFunnels account has a monthly subscriptions of $97.00.

There’s a free 14-day trial too.

And the cool thing is that with that 14 day trial you can log in, create a funnel and have some fun with the software…

Before you even pay a dollar!

OK so you might not be able to refer 100 people in 14 days unless you’re Russell Brunson. **

But let’s talk more first about how it really works.

Basically, if you refer 100 qualifying buyers to ClickFunnels, you’re eligible to earn $500 every month towards your dream car. (Provided the number of qualified buyers is above 100).

They also have a 2nd level - refer 200 users, you earn $1000 every month (towards your dream car).

So what’s a qualifying buyer?

Good question.

Here’s what constitutes a qualifying buyer:

A qualifying buyer is the one that:

  • Was recruited by the qualifying ClickFunnels affiliate (ie you!); and
  • Which paid ClickFunnels $97.00 in a month immediately preceding the month in which the bonus payment is made.


Let’s not get too lost in this details!

Let’s just say if they bought a yearly subscription it’s a good thing...

And if they sign up to ClickFunnels then even better!


How do you find those 100 people?

How do you find 100 people who REALLY need ClickFunnels so you can get your dream car? (In my case, the Tesla model X!)

It’s nigh impossible for me because of [insert excuses]…

You gotta put in the work for that.

But ClickFunnels does have a rather cool thing up its sleeve called 'Sticky Cookies.'

Sounds weirdly like food I know.

So what is a sticky cookie then?

A sticky cookie is like a little piece of code that sticks around with you even if you’ve moved to another website…

Talk about overly-attached cookies!

According to ClickFunnels, here are some…

Cool things a sticky cookie can do…

  1. Follow Your Visitors Across All Of Their Devices - If someone registers for a webinar at the office, or on their phone, but then watches the webinar at home… don’t worry! Sticky cookies has you covered and will make sure you still get paid!

  2. Focus On Front End Products - You can focus on selling ANY ClickFunnel's products (even the free + shipping front end products) and if/when they purchase any of our other products in the future, sticky cookies makes sure you get paid!

Them some cool benefits!

Now you have a higher chance to convert your visitors as a ClickFunnels affiliate…

But yeah, you gotta put in the work. Actual work.^^

Now for that dream car.

Suppose through some late night sweat and tears, you referred 100 qualified ClickFunnel users.

You might then ask…

What’s the process to get my dream car?

Because you want it now, right?  🙂

Do we ask them to buy it and send it to us? Boohoo.

Almost but not quite.

Here’s how ClickFunnels explains it…

As a member of the ClickFunnels affiliate program, you are automatically enrolled into our 'Dream Car' contest. Each month, as you signup new members, you will get closer and closer to getting your DREAM CAR!

Let me show you how easy it is to qualify...

  1. Get 100 Active ClickFunnels Members - As soon as you have 100 active ClickFunnels members, you qualify for your DREAM CAR! You can then go lease this car, and then send us proof that you got it…

  2. We Send You $500 Per Month Towards Your Lease Payment - As long as you stay above 100 active ClickFunnels members, we’ll send you a $500 cheque to reimburse your payment on your dream car!

  3. We’ll Increase It To $1,000 Per Month When You Get To 200 Members! - In any month that you have at least 200 active ClickFunnels members, we’ll send you a $1000 cheque to reimburse your payments on your dream car!

So after you’ve hit that magic 100 ClickFunnel sign ups, you then have to lease the car yourself!

Which means you can now go the car dealer and…

Lease a new car like a boss!

But there’s a few things you have to do after getting the car, right from ClickFunnels’ mouth:

The qualifying affiliate must submit the following photographs to ClickFunnels..."

  • Five photographs of the qualifying vehicle;
  • The photographs must depict the vehicle from the front, sides, and rear;
  • ClickFunnels will provide you with a logo kit, your car must bear the ClickFunnels logo according to the instructions, and your photographs must clearly show your compliance with those logo instructions; and
  • The qualifying affiliate must appear in each photograph.

Do the things above and you’re good to go.

BTW you might only think about this after you have a whole bunch of signups…

But anyways…

You also might ask…

Is any car eligible for the dream car giveaway?

Here’s the deal…

ClickFunnels use the term 'qualifying vehicle' and that just means a list of cars eligible for the program (2010 or newer).

Take a peek at the list...

Alfa Romeo Any model
Aston Martin Any model
Audi Any model (except “A” models)
Bentley Any model
BMW Any model
Cadillac Any model
Chevrolet Camaro or Corvette
Dodge Viper
Ford GT or Mustang
Infiniti Any model
Jaguar Any model
Lexus Any model
Maserati Any model
Nissan 370Z Roadster or GT-R
Porsche Any model
Tesla Any model (yesssss!)

Quite a number to pick from there, huh?

But where’s the advertised supercars?

They add a note that special considerations will be given to Lamborghini, Ferrari, and Rolls Royce models. 🙂

Let’s pick a Tesla for example.

A shiny new, straight of the showroom floor, Tesla Model X costs $146,000

Wait… $146K?

How the heck am I supposed to pay for the loan with only $500 monthly?

Even without interest, on a 5 years loan, you have to fork out at least $2K a month for that.

That’s why you can’t just pick whichever car you like.

You have to consider the price first.

But hey, it’s all good. The $500.00 is only a bonus to help you pay for a car you want.

And the best thing…

ClickFunnels has a very generous affiliate program too.

Which will happily pay you…

40% monthly recurring commissions!

If 200 people sign up at $97.00 a month, then you pocket at least $7,760 a month. 🙂

That’s 200 people x $38.80 (your 40% share of the $97.00).

Add $1,000 on top (your dream car bonus) that’s at least $8,760 per month.

I think I’m roughly right with the maths.

I said at least because there are up-sells and extra offers that add even more to your monthly income.

So anyways…

Are you ready to go out there and win the dream car giveaway?

For me, it’s not winning a car that is the motivator.

I know. Shock and horror, right?

It’s having that recurring income so I can do whatever I want, go anywhere I want and help make a difference.


I can at least tell you that ClickFunnels is a legit company that has been around since 2014.

They’ve established their presence in the make money online / marketing niche.

ClickFunnels is the fastest growing, non-VC-backed, tech-startup in the world, growing from 0-100 million dollars in just 3 years alone.

So if you want to be in, now is probably a good time.

The ClickFunnels dream car is the real deal

It’s OK if you’re on the fence on this…

I was sceptical too. (And still am a little. But I've come to accept that people actually do win these dream cars sometimes!)

But anyhoo...
