L2 Leadership Level
PRO Member Since:
Why we are in PRO:
To educate and push ourselves over the limit. To help people create an internet lifestyle.
Our Favorite PRO Courses:
PRO U Sales and PRO U Service. These courses are awesome. If you haven´t gone through them, just DO it. They are so easy to understand and you can start to use the strategies right away. PRO`s golden nuggets in our business. We serve!
Our Favorite Marketing Strategies:
Banners & Facebook ads. Go where the people are and market to the people you think are in need of your product. Always be willing to test new things that nobody else does. Anyone wants to work from wherever they want you – just need to market to them correctly. Be transparent and you will find new ways. We get the best result in the ages between 40-54
Our Marketing Funnel We Are Using Right Now:
Our own custom funnel. Our goal is to launch the funnel to the whole community before the new year.
Our Favorite Charities:
Christian: My (oldest) 8 year old daughter Yesim wants to create one by herself and I am going to support her all the way. My wife donates money to starving children in Africa.
Martin: I don’t have one particular but I love the new social entrepreneurship things that is going on. The ones where someone punches something and the company will donate to the one in need.
“Don’t wish it were easier, wish you were better.” – Jim Rohn. A other good quote is from Edison when he invented the light bulb – “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that don’t work.” Talk about newer giving up! That´s Strom & Bir.
My Most Memorable Experience:
Christian: When I got married with my beautiful wife. She has supported me all the way with all the crazy ideas I’ve had since I was 15 years old. She gave me 3 beautiful kids that I can pass on my legacy to.
Martin: (per Christian) He was quiet and I suppose he is waiting for his new child that is coming in some months.
Martin: Salmon or some good Swedish meatballs

Martin: In the summertime – home sweet home. But when it’s getting colder here in Sweden, I would like to move to Hawaii.
5 Things You Don’t Know About Us:
1. We are both DJs that play active around Swedish nightclubs.
2. Both drink alcohol too much.
3. We like to do spoof around a lot. If you meet us, you’ll notice that we are 2 hyperactive Energizer rabbits that love to have fun and sometimes it gets out of hand.
4. We are just like kids but don´t hush on us!
5. Martin is going to be a dad in 4 weeks, and loves technical things. Christian already has 3 kids and he is just 30.
What We Want Our Legacy To Be:
We want to have something to pass on to our kids that they can keep working on. We want our brand to be recognized for helping people get a better future. To have made some impression on the market and changed it forever. Inspired & helped people to create the life of their dreams, and being there and supporting them all the way. That also includes giving to charity.
What would your advice to the newest PRO member be?
Set your goals high and scale them down to smaller goals and achieve them on by one. If you run your PRO business to make money, there is one thing you should be concentrating on and that is to learn how to generate leads. Leads is the key to success and learn how to generate super-target quality leads. Don´t be afraid of explaining to people what PRO really is and how it works on your websites. It creates less questions and shorter phone calls for you. Call every lead/app you can in the beginning to learn how to master the calls. Create you own unique selling technique by learning how people act. Learn from the questions you get and put them on your websites and in the autoresponder. People want to know there is a real person behind the scenes.
