Ditch The Agency And Build A Funnel – Scott Oldford

For this episode of Authority Insider I spoke to business guru Scott Oldford. Scott’s one of the most remarkable people who’s been on the show so far. His career as an entrepreneur started when he was just seven years old and set up a business selling eggs from home.

Scott didn’t stick with eggs; by the age of 16 he was running an online programming and marketing business, and had picked up a lot of recognition including an American Express Innovator Award.

Of course innovation is always challenging, and Scott’s run into a few challenges along the way. At one point he was nearly $750,000 in debt. In fact that was just over three years ago – but in 14 months he had built a new company that was already bringing in close to $1 million in revenue.

Now Scott is showing entrepreneurs how to build effective online marketing funnels using the methods he developed for his own businesses. He’s already helped more than 5,000 businesses to grow, and he plans to help a lot more.

Scott is a huge believer in the power of simplicity; he eats the same things every day, and he owns a whole two pairs of jeans and three shirts.

Here’s just a few of the other things that we discussed:

  • How to protect yourself against scaling too fast
  • What is the difference between coaching and advising
