DotCom Secrets Review – Ultimate Guide To Building Sales Funnels

With the publication of Traffic Secrets in May 2020, Russell Brunson has updated and published a new hard copy edition of DotCom Secrets.

Russell added about 60,000 words to the original edition which was already a best seller. 

Together with the new edition of Expert Secrets and Traffic Secrets, they form the Secrets Trilogy which comes in a hardcover box set.

DotCom Secrets is one of the best marketing books you cannot afford not to read.

It complements Expert Secrets and Traffic Secrets.

Whereas Expert Secrets is the art that shows you how to position yourself so people will pay you for your knowledge, talent and skills…

…DotCom Secrets provides the science to building your online business.

Traffic Secrets is the fuel that drives your dream customers to your funnels.

This is what this New DotComSecrets review will cover:

Russell Brunson is the CEO and co-founder of the software company, ClickFunnels.

He is acknowledged as a marketing genius.

ClickFunnels, as I will show later, is today one of the fastest growing software companies in the world, a feat achieved without venture capital.

Russell has published and sold over 400,000 copies of his marketing books.

As of 2020, his training, teaching and software have created 789 millionaires who are in his exclusive Two Comma Club.

Russell Brunson is a marketing genius, Co-Founder of ClickFunnels, the sales funnel software company and author of the books, Expert Secrets, DotCom Secrets, Traffic Secrets and Network Marketing Secrets

What Is The New DotCom Secrets Book?

DotCom Secrets was Russell Brunson’s first book. 

Published in 2015, it came to represent the must read marketing book for internet marketers and has sold over 200,000 copies.

DotCom Secrets was published soon after  Russell Brunson launched his software company, ClickFunnels.

The book was a step by step underground playbook on how any company could use sales funnels to grow their leads and sales.

In the new DotCom Secrets, Russell Brunson draws on the phenomenal growth of ClickFunnels.

In 3 short years, ClickFunnels grew by over 4,232% to become number 76 on the INC 500 list of the fastest growing private companies in the USA .

In that period ClickFunnels became the 7th fastest growing software company…

….had the 10th highest gross  revenues in the top 100 comapnies, and…

…was the #1 fastest growing software company with gross revenue over $50 million.

This was achieved without external venture capital funding.

In the new DotCom Secrets, Russell shares the secret funnel strategy behind this remarkable achievement.

What Is The Secret Funnel Strategy?

If you are looking to generate leads or sell a product for your online business…

…which literally means every business… sales funnels offer a route to achieve both.

The ClickFunnels team has run tens of thousands of tests to figure out which funnels work best for almost every business.

DotCom Secrets is therefore a playbook. 

It shows how any company can grow quickly online using sales funnels.

At the time of writing, over 789 businesses have achieved revenues of over 7 figures inside one of their funnels.

These are the Two Comma Club  award winners.

56 have grossed over 8 figures (Two Comma Club X) and 11 have grossed over 9 figures in one funnel (Two Comma Club C).

DotCom Secrets will give you access to all the processes, funnels, frameworks and scripts to build profitable sales funnels.

You will be getting the same secret formula people pay Russell Brunson $100,000 per day for.

What Is A Sales Funnel?

Unlike websites, which have so many buttons and calls to action on one page…

…sales funnels are simple and more focussed.

There is a one call to action on each page or step. 

Customers are taken directly to what they are looking for without distraction.

They are offered other products or services that complement and add extra value to what they originally purchased.

In simple terms, a sales funnel will have a page to collect their personal information.

Leads are then taken through the sales process that has an upsell.

Each page is simple, has a hook that will grab your atention, tells a story to create value and makes you an offer that will move you to the next page of the funnel.

This hook, story, offer triad, is the fundamental basis of any profitable sales funnel.

What Is Inside The New DotCom Secrets Book?

The Secret Formula

DotCom Secrets is based on a framework Russell calls, “The Secret Formula.”

The Secret Formula fundamentally seeks to answer 4 questions:

Question #1: Who is your dream customer?

Question #2: Where are they congregating?

Question #3: What is the bait that you can use to attract them to you?

Question #4: What is the unique result that you can create for them?

Inside DotCom Secrets

The new DotCom Secrets is a hardcover 393-page book.

It is made up of 28 secrets, each shared as a chapter and divided into 4 sections:

Section #1: Sales Funnel Secrets

Section #2: The Funnels In The Value Ladder

Section #3: Funnel Scripts

Section #4: Building Your Funnels

Section #1: Sales Funnel Secrets

Russell Brunson shares his Eureka moment when he discovered the power of sales funnels.

As a sophomore, he had started his first proper online business selling DVDs on how to make potato guns with his friend, Nate Ploehn.

Using Google ads, the business was initially profitable until Google, literally overnight increased his cost per click by over 10 times.

Now loss making, he had to turn off his ads.

Soon after, his friend, Mike Filsaime introduced him to the concept of sales funnels.

By adding a higher value “One-Time Offer as an upsell, in this case potato gun making kit, his busiess once again became profitable despite the increased ad spend. 

This was Russell’s first sales funnel.

Secret #1: The Secret Formula

Secret #3: The Value Ladder

Secret #4: The Attractive Character

Secret #5: Funnel Hacking

Section #2: The Funnels In The Value Ladder

In Section 2, Russell looks more deeply at each step of the value ladder.

He identifies the goal for each step, and which funnels are best to achieve that goal.

He examines how to create offers that plug into the funnel and what sales or “funnel scripts” to use for each page in the funnel.

Section #3: Funnel Scripts

Building a sales funnel is only a small piece of the puzzle to make sales online.

The biggest piece is the pitch otherwise called the “sales copy.”

These are the words that are likey to convince someone to buy your product.

For each funnel he created, Russell Brunson would research similar funnels.

He examined their videos, webinars and scripts looking for a common pattern.

He created little “funnel scripts” he would use when creating his own sales videos.

All he had to do was to plug in his stories and offer to the script and almost every product lauch with this process was successful.

In the first edition of DotCom Secrets, the scripts were included with each page of the funnel.

Since then, Jim Edwards, has created the software, Funnel Scripts, where you fill in the blanks, and it generates the scripts for you.

In the new DotCom Secrets, all the scripts have been put together in one section for easy referencing and use.

Section 3 has the following chapters:

Front-End Lead Funnel Scripts
