Krystal’s welcome to the show
00:25
thanks so much for having me Davis I’ve
00:27
been looking forward to the show for a
00:28
week now and I’m finally on it I’m
00:30
starstruck thank you so much well
00:34
Christmas is the co-founder of campfire
00:36
is an ex airline boss one of the things
00:38
you’re gonna love is just kind of go
00:40
through this is one of these Christmas
00:41
is created is something for people as
00:44
far as podcasters but also for a lot of
00:46
our funnel hacking community on the
00:48
ability to get paid to ask questions now
00:50
we spend a lot of time really talking
00:52
about the importance of questions and
00:53
making sure that you’re asking the right
00:56
questions that your phrasing things the
00:57
right way but Christos is creating
00:59
something it’s really cool I want to
01:00
share with you guys it’s we’re just
01:02
gonna dive right into this but Christos
01:03
anything else you want to say yeah share
01:05
as far as your background anything else
01:06
before we dive into campfire and some
01:07
this time you guys doing I’m the
01:09
co-founder of campfire so I’d love to
01:11
talk about campfire be great the other
01:13
stuff later on as well if you like not a
01:15
problem alright so what I wanna make
01:17
sure you guys understand is when we’re
01:20
looking at creating funnels and you’re
01:22
working with your prospects and things
01:24
the importance of questions is super
01:27
super critical in fact obviously all the
01:28
stories that we we spend a lot of time
01:30
helping that people understand the parts
01:31
of telling stories a lot of times those
01:33
stories are going to be response to an
01:35
answer for a question or that you’re
01:37
actually telling that story in advance
01:39
of the question trying to resolve
01:40
concerns people have so the idea for
01:43
most entrepreneurs is you gotta get
01:45
really good at asking questions and the
01:47
reason I wanted to bring Chris was
01:48
honest this whole campfire app that he
01:50
has you actually get paid based on the
01:53
quality of the question is that correct
01:54
or how does that actually work Christo’s
01:56
that’s exciting correct yeah that’s
01:57
that’s pretty much the point so campfire
01:59
is a mobile app for iOS Android is
02:03
coming soon and it is an audio based
02:05
platform where you ask your own
02:08
questions your burning questions to your
02:10
favorite experts or celebrities or pod
02:13
car
02:13
Buster’s the sorts of people you can’t
02:15
normally reach out to very easily and
02:17
they will then answer you directly with
02:20
personalized audio messages that are
02:23
sent directly to your phone but the cool
02:25
thing which you really highlighted Dave
02:26
thank you is that if you ask really good
02:29
questions popular questions questions
02:32
that get other people listening in then
02:34
you will get paid real money like actual
02:37
dollars which you can donate if you want
02:39
to you can donate some of that real
02:41
money to whichever charity that you
02:43
support and so we say a campfire that
02:45
social media is here now finally to do
02:48
some social good but I suppose that the
02:50
benefit for most people really is as you
02:53
say that you can actually get paid to
02:55
think up and then ask really good and
02:57
popular questions you’re quite right
02:58
that you know telling story is very very
03:01
important when it comes to you know
03:03
funding business creating the
03:04
opportunities for your business etc etc
03:06
but the other other side of the coin of
03:09
telling great stories is also asking
03:11
great questions and and so hopefully
03:14
Dave your audience will will love
03:16
campfire it’s it’s a it’s a great place
03:19
to be in the moments it’s just growing
03:20
so it’s terrific very fun so when you
03:23
take a look at you know who are some of
03:24
the people that they could be asking
03:26
questions to oh really I mean the world
03:29
is your oyster we have people on there
03:31
who are travel experts we have people in
03:32
there who are investment professionals
03:34
we have people on there who are real
03:36
estate developers we have YouTube
03:38
celebrities I mean there are all sorts
03:40
of people each with their own specific
03:42
expertise and to be honest the most some
03:44
of the most interesting answers that
03:46
I’ve heard so far are actually from
03:47
people who go outside their areas of
03:49
immediate expertise so not necessarily
03:52
on topic for this podcast Dave but my
03:55
favorite answer on campfire so far has
03:58
been by one of those YouTube celebrities
04:00
I just mentioned who rather than being
04:02
her usual zany YouTube self on the app
04:06
decided just to sort of take a step back
04:09
for a second and answered a question
04:10
around depression which is a you know
04:13
something that she suffered from when
04:14
she was a teenager and she was
04:15
dispensing advice to somebody who was
04:18
asking her about it that was a very
04:20
touching response that I was just
04:24
listening to this morning so it doesn’t
04:25
it’s not necessarily just a platform
04:27
when you speak about serious and wheatie
04:29
topics you can also talk about things
04:31
outside your own field of expertise you
04:33
can be funny you know that there’s all
04:35
sorts of stuff going on then and I use
04:37
the basis is growing a quite a clip even
04:40
though we’ve only been been in the App
04:41
Store for the last three or four weeks
04:43
so if they wanted to do some research or
04:46
to get a quote from a famous person can
04:48
they actually use that if they asked the
04:50
question the person responds can they
04:51
use that on their website on their
04:53
during the funnel or in you you you are
04:56
able to transcribe the audio yes I mean
04:59
to be honest we wouldn’t chase after you
05:00
if you just occasionally copy the audio
05:03
but you know if you do it
05:04
egregiously like we have terms and
05:06
conditions which prevent you from doing
05:08
that but absolutely you can transcribe
05:09
the audio responses that you get 100%
05:13
just like that make sure it’s a quote
05:16
campfire when you do you know some of
05:19
the main reasons I was looking at bring
05:21
you on the show is I know that a lot of
05:23
our entrepreneurs and our funnel hacker
05:25
community yours always they’re trying to
05:27
find different things ways of bringing
05:29
things into their their communities and
05:31
one of those things I was thinking about
05:32
was the ability to actually whether it
05:34
is a celebrity or someone else they can
05:37
bring on either as this person so and so
05:39
I was I asked this question so-and-so on
05:41
here was their answer and that way they
05:42
could be kind of portrayed as the as the
05:45
connection for their community to
05:47
whatever the celebrity might be is that
05:48
something they can do with campfire oh
05:50
absolutely I mean you could almost think
05:52
about campfires being a place where you
05:54
could have a you know a community of
05:56
citizen journalists going out there
05:58
eliciting stories or asking great
06:00
questions to interviewees those
06:02
interviewees could be celebrities that
06:04
could be business people it could be
06:05
politicians religious leaders whoever
06:07
and then you know if you were a citizen
06:09
journalist you run a blog or you run a
06:11
you know a small business you can
06:13
absolutely take some of that content
06:15
those quotes and and distribute them to
06:17
your to your followers to your audience
06:21
to your you know latent basic customers
06:23
whatever it happens to be certainly I
06:25
think that’s fantastic I know for us
06:27
here clickfunnels we’re in the middle
06:30
right now tomorrow’s our big day we were
06:31
have our viral video launched and we’ve
06:34
got over 400 now almost 450 celebrities
06:38
influencers media politicians everyone
06:40
else coming into finding the
06:41
waste of all places to partake in this
06:43
and it’s been fascinating for me at how
06:47
how it’s been just almost a crazy crazy
06:50
situation where it all depends on who
06:52
else is there where as far as who else
06:54
wants to come it’s just been it’s I feel
06:56
like I’m back in crazy you guys have
06:58
done so well you know with with the
07:01
brand that you built and it’s true it’s
07:03
so you get one you know one person to be
07:05
interested and then persons 2 to 5 get
07:08
interested at which point you know
07:09
everybody’s interested because they see
07:10
it’s like any it’s like a party right I
07:13
mean once you have written guests at a
07:15
party everybody wants to be there but of
07:17
course if it’s just me nobody nobody
07:18
visits so my reason to bringing that up
07:21
is is there a way I wanna make sure I
07:25
understand exactly how people can get to
07:27
you know quote-unquote
07:28
hire people in the pecking order as far
07:30
as getting their questions answered
07:31
what’s the how do they do that oh this
07:34
is sorry I should have said I mean to
07:36
see you download the app you create a
07:38
profile and that’s it as soon as you
07:41
create a campfire profile you can go and
07:42
ask anybody anything that you want if
07:45
you ask somebody a question they’re not
07:47
on the app our team here at campfire
07:51
towers is notified and so we then
07:53
basically undertake to go and find that
07:55
person for you and bring them onto the
07:58
platform where you and other people can
08:00
can then ask them questions or even
08:02
answer their questions if they want to
08:04
answer you too so so yeah you can ask
08:08
questions to anybody there’s no
08:09
restriction whatsoever on who you can or
08:11
can’t ask once you’ve created a profile
08:13
I love that so the next thing I want to
08:15
find out is a lot of more entrepreneurs
08:17
have become celebrities in their own
08:18
right and because of that is this
08:21
something they could then use for their
08:22
audience where their audience could have
08:24
more access to them without being half
08:27
able to have cool quartic or direct
08:29
access I think so yes I mean one of the
08:32
things that I’ve heard from the early
08:34
users that we have so far is that people
08:36
like the ones who are talking about
08:37
entrepreneurs who have created sort of
08:40
their own personal brands become popular
08:41
in their own right get overwhelmed by
08:44
the number of emails and inquiries and
08:46
tweets and DMS and all of these sorts of
08:48
things that come at them from all sides
08:50
and on across multiple different
08:52
platforms with campfire
08:54
basically you you the we our payment
08:57
mechanism means that people are
08:58
incentivized to ask good questions
09:00
remember when I asked a quite a good
09:03
question I get paid and rewarded for it
09:05
and so from the perspective of the you
09:08
know the expert the influencer the
09:10
businessperson the celebrity now I’m
09:12
getting what I hope will be higher
09:14
quality questions higher quality content
09:16
coming at me because the people asking
09:18
me those questions actually have an
09:19
incentive to ask me you know higher
09:21
quality stuff when I respond as a
09:23
business leader or a you know celebrity
09:25
whatever I respond I can do so very
09:29
easily in the form of a short audio
09:30
message of course I don’t need great
09:33
hair or makeup or you know too much pre
09:35
prep work or anything like that I can
09:37
just record an answer directly into my
09:39
phone get sent directly to the person
09:41
who asked me the question and of course
09:44
as I said I make money by answering
09:46
questions I also make money by whenever
09:48
anybody listens into the answers money
09:51
which I can if I want as I said donate
09:53
to charities that I care about so this
09:57
works I think for for influences
10:01
business leaders on many different
10:02
levels I can raise money for charity I
10:04
can better connect with people who care
10:06
about what I have to say and I can also
10:08
sit much more easily through you know my
10:11
what’s currently a very overcrowded
10:13
inbox so how do they actually make money
10:17
I mean is it does the app cost money to
10:19
sign up I mean where’s the revenue
10:20
coming to be paid the questions work so
10:23
when you ask a question on campfire you
10:26
pay money to ask so I might Dave for
10:29
example pay let’s say $10 to ask you a
10:31
question and the amount of money that I
10:32
pay is the fee that you set so you may
10:35
choose to set your fee of five dollars
10:36
you may set it at $50 whatever that
10:38
fears I pay it if I want to ask you a
10:41
question and then I make my money back
10:44
when other people listen to the answer
10:46
that you send to me so I might ask you a
10:48
question
10:48
you aren’t say if it’s a good question
10:50
and you know 100 other people also want
10:52
to listen in and I can make back the
10:54
money that I paid to ask you the
10:55
question in the first place so that’s
10:58
basically how it works and that’s where
10:59
the revenue comes from very cool so what
11:04
type of a revenue could a person make
11:05
basically either asking questions or
11:07
answering questions
11:08
because did the person answering gets
11:09
paid as well yes yes the person
11:13
answering gets paid as well so everybody
11:14
gets paid basically including the
11:16
charities that the people involved
11:17
support which is great
11:19
now I mentioned before we’ve only been
11:21
in the App Store for three or four weeks
11:22
so far but we have one user around -
11:25
this is an outlier but still we have one
11:27
user who has made two thousand one
11:29
hundred and fifty dollars so far by
11:32
answering I think is something like 15
11:34
questions something like that I can’t
11:36
remember the exact number but she’s done
11:39
very very well indeed and it just goes
11:41
to show the potential I think you know
11:44
you never wants to come this was still
11:46
very early stage but already people are
11:48
making some actual money almost as a
11:50
side hustle to their existing businesses
11:52
so it’s actually also another way that
11:55
some funnel hackers could actually
11:56
become a celebrity is by putting their
11:59
profile out there and answering
12:00
questions for other people about
12:01
whatever their specialty may be exactly
12:04
exactly and Dave I hope you too will
12:06
download the app to do that once we get
12:10
through this uh let me get through this
12:11
viral video launch party and not take a
12:14
look at that for sure okay so any other
12:17
things about camp fire or anything else
12:19
you wanna make sure that our audience
12:20
understands no really I hope that I
12:23
covered most of it um I hope that I
12:26
covered most of it yeah perfect well
12:28

12:30
today I appreciate you being on and
12:31

12:52
your business and get the questions
12:53
answered from other celebrities that you
12:55
haven’t had access to or the other side
