Eugene Schwartz, an epic synthesizer, once got paid $50,000,000 (FIFTY MILLION) to write a textbook on natural health. Imagine getting paid 50 MIL to write a book?! And in 1966, he wrote a book called “Breakthrough Advertising" which is now widely regarded as the 'holy grail' of copywriting books. So how did Eugene Schwartz (one of the highest paid synthesizers to ever live) become such a great writer? He did two things - a lot: He read and he wrote. When he read, he read things that interested him. And when he wrote, he wrote about things that interested him. But he did so with structure... He always wrote using something called the "The 33 Minute Rule." Here's how: Every morning Schwartz would chose ONE topic he wanted to work on that he knew would require a lot of focus and concentration. He then turned off all notifications & unplugged his phone. Anything that could distract him (like his dog) was in a separate room. He then set a timer for 33 minutes and 33 seconds. For those 33 minutes and 33 seconds, Schwartz only allowed himself to do two things: 1) Stare at the page. 2) Write on the page. NOTHING ELSE. He said, "I would often get so bored of staring at the page, that after a couple of minutes I would just write to overcome the boredom." "But once I began writing, I began flowing, and it was effortless." And once the timer went off, whether he was in flow state of not, Schwartz took a mandatory 5 minute break. During this forced break, Schwartz deliberately took his mind off writing completely by playing with his dog, making a cup of coffee, speaking with a friend, stretching, or using the men's room. After his 5 minute break, Schwartz would reset the timer for another 33 minutes and 33 seconds and return to either: Staring at the page Or Writing more. Schwartz said he would go on to repeat this 33minute/5min process until 4-5 hours had elapsed. The rest of his day he took off work and just lived his life how he wished. If you want to become one of the best, and highest paid synthesizers you know...

    Great post Ted. This was a great piece of writing.

In this post I want to: 1. Share an opportunity to work with me and the team in a free 90-day "specific knowledge" bootcamp 2. Reveal what I've been working on and why I've been inactive in the community PART 1: WHAT I'VE BEEN WORKING ON After I "retired", I got bored. Humans are built to work. So I knew I needed to find my next project. But in a world of unlimited opportunities, it was hard to orient myself. Until I hear this piece of advice - Go where you are needed You should always go where you can help the most, in the least amount of time. That's where you're needed most. After growing my YouTube to 600,000+ subs and making $1,000,000, it was clear I had two skillsets: 1. Audience growth 2. Audience monetization So I was needed in two places: 1. Helping Consultants grow on YouTube 2. Helping YouTubers monetize One group has monetization, but needs an audience. The other group has an audience, but needs monetization. Unsure which to go with, I picked the first one. The main person I worked with was a Consultant called Rian Doris. He bought Consulting.com from Sam Ovens, and runs FlowResearchCollective.com. I helped him define his YouTube strategy, built a team of A-Players who would execute on the strategy, and led them towards making videos. What happened next? Well, the channel blew up. - 940,000 views on Video #1 (on a channel with 0 subs) - 60,000 subs just 4 months later So that was it. I knew what I was going to focus on for the next 3-5 years. I was going to be the 'audience growth' guy. Until... My YouTuber friend Hamza reached out and asked me how he should monetize his channel. So I sent him a simple Loom outlining everything I'd do if I were him.

    Apologies for the delay. Lots of applicants. Working through them at the moment. Thank you for your patience

This is a message for Consultants. Specifically someone who sells coaching or a course to help people solve their problems. In 2022 I: - Spent two days in LA with Sam Ovens (on track to become billionaire) - Spoke with Alex Hormozi ($200m/year portfolio) - Spoke (and worked) with MrBeast (130m subscribers) - Spoke with Cole Gordon ($2,000,000/month) - Met Bas Slot in Lisbon twice ($1,000,000/month) My conclusion after all of this was simple: This industry is changing… The smartest people have noticed, and are already taking advantage of this shift. Everyone else will be left behind. Watch these clips (5-10 mins) to spot the shift. - Clip from Sam Ovens - Tweet from Alex Hormozi - Another tweet from Alex Hormozi - Clip from Cole Gordon (making $2m/m+) - Clip from All In Podcast (all four are Billionaires) - Clip from Alex Hormozi Watch those clips before reading on. They're short. Here's how I see things changing: - Direct Response → Brand - Ads → Content - Selling → Giving And to me, this is a GREAT SHIFT. Thank fuck this industry is FINALLY maturing. It's no longer enough to have flashy marketing and great sales skills. You have to build a brand. Over the past few months I’ve hinted at this shift quite a few times, and how I've used it to make $100,000/month profit (and sometimes even $90,000 in a day). I've made a: - 33 minute Loom video explaining this new model - 21 minute Loom video explaining how I got 600,000 subscribers using this model - Free course explaining how to build a great community - Loom video I sent to Alex Hormozi about using trends to grow an audience when he asked me to help him grow his YouTube - Notion page explaining the lessons I learned about YouTube growth from speaking with MrBeast - Google Doc explaining the content system that grows your audience in just two hours per week

If you're a beginner looking to start making money online, but don't want to risk spending your own $ in case it's unsuccessful... ... then here's how to ethically exploit Skool's new $100,000 challenge so that you can generate monthly recurring revenue with zero risk of losing/spending any of your own money. I'll give you some context, then give you the playbook. CONTEXT: - Skool's running a $100,000 challenge - They're giving away $100k of prizes to people who start a Skool community and use Skool payments to generate monthly recurring revenue - The challenge lasts 28 days - The big prizes are for the people who generate the most monthly recurring revenue or who get the most customers (nearly impossible to win if you're a beginner) - Skool has said "EVERYBODY who gets 10 paid members gets Skool merch + 3-months FREE Skool subscription" (winner winner chicken dinner) Here's the PLAYBOOK to generate Monthly Recurring Revenue with zero risk: 1. Use the first 14 days of the challenge to figure out what you're going to sell, and how you'll get customers 2. With less than 14 days of the challenge remaining, start your 14 day free trial 3. Set up Skool payments to charge $1/month for your community 4. Hustle to get 10 community members 5. If you don't, cancel your Skool free trial and don't pay a penny 6. If you succeed, you get another 3 months free Skool (and some free merch) 7. Use those 3 months free Skool to generate $99/month - $9,999/month 8. If you don't, cancel your Skool and you'll still have never paid a penny 9. If you succeed, now you're making more than the cost of Skool, so still never risk a penny 10. Continue to scale up to $10,000/month And if you run that playbook you'll be able to generate monthly recurring revenue without ever risking a single penny of your own money. If you've been watching to start an online business but never got round to it, now's the time to act. There's no better feeling than earning your first dollar online.

Not many people know this, but I actually almost partnered with Alex Hormozi. You can hear my story (and the three things that Alex knows about money that you probably don't) here: https://youtu.be/jEnbQE2u9VM Or you can download a searchable database of every video, interview, TikTok, and tweet that Alex has put out by clicking here. I believe this database can change lives, and I hope you find value in it.

    @Lefteris K I asked for Alex's consent. I didn't ask for Naval's consent

UPDATE: thanks for all these replies, I no longer have a problem with low energy, I honestly don't even know what helped me, maybe I started to be more strict with waking up and going to sleep, every day at the same time, and the morning walks, but I'm still open to hear, what helped you guys maximize your energy hey guys, so I need some help and thought this will be a great place to ask it, I have low energy, and I just don't understand why, because logically it feels like I do everything right: - I have 8-9 hours of sleep every day - I go to the gym 3x a week for one hour - I go cycling in nature for 30 minutes every day - I try to eat healthy (no seed oil, sugars, or processed food) - my room has a lot of windows, so I got sunlight in the morning - I don't use any electronics 1 hour before bed and have blue light blockers here is what my day looks like: I wake up at 7 am, sit down in front of my computer work till 12, then I eat my first meal, (so I intermittent fast 16:8) after it I go back and work. at 2 pm I go to the gym, at 3 pm I go cycling and after it, I usually do some work outside for an hour, then I'm in front of my computer till 9 pm, I turn it off and go to sleep at 10 pm I'm a noob when it comes to high performance and energy optimization, but if anyone has solved this problem, and has some expertise in this field, I would love to hear your advice these are my ideas on why I have low energy: - I spend too much time in front of my computer - I only eat 2 meals a day (btw I usually feel this tiredness afternoon) - maybe not enough water? - lack of supplements? - my diet is not good enough, thinking of changing to a carnivore fruit diet also, I don't drink coffee only some green tea sometimes and I meditate, journal, and read before bed, Idk if this helps

    @Hannah Weaver Do you make content about nutrition publicly?

This is not a motivational message. This is a fact. Identify the causes that guarantee you achieving the effect you desire. Do this unemotionally. Do not get attached to certain causes. Remain neutral. Then relentlessly execute. If you do this, it is only a matter of time until you get what you want. Trust me. I believe in you. Even if you don’t believe in yourself. You’re more capable that you realise. Step up to the plate. It’s your time to perform. Do what needs to be done.

Just checked my toggl time tracker and yeah, is said 354h. It's a lot of eggs in one basket. Almost so much that feel embarrassed to reveal it. But I wanted to learn how to make documentary style youtube videos. So now about 3 months later, my first doc is finally out. https://youtu.be/fQmfn6l_0Ac Would love to get your guys feedback so I can continue to improve.

    @Patric Tarnhamn Here's the thing with creating content. You put your heart into it. You release it. It feels like nothing happened. But over time people tell you the impact that content had on them. In many ways, it exemplifies delayed gratification perfectly. AND most people that the content has impacted will never tell you! So the impact is actually a lot larger than we even realise. Crazy.

    @Christian Vandaos Some people have high attention to detail, others don't

I have a friend. He's a YouTube genius. He has over half a million subscribers. Got 500,000+ views on a new channel with 0 subscribers. And knows how to make a viral video better than anyone else I know. Now, this friend of mine, I've been trying to convince him for a while now to launch a product that shares the things that he's learned over the years... ... And he's always said no. "I just wanna focus on making videos" he said. And it makes sense, right? If you truly know the formula to making videos go viral, wouldn't you just focus on making videos? Well, after talking to him at the creator mastermind (hint), I explained that everyone in this community would die to know the things he knows about YouTube. And I finally convinced him to launch a weekend mastermind sharing all his viral YouTube growth secrets exclusively to members of the Synthesizer School. And it's happening THIS WEEKEND! It will be a paid event. But I know for a fact it'll be worth it for anyone serious about growing their YouTube channel What would you love to see included in this offer? Let me know with a comment EDIT: More info: https://www.skool.com/synthesizers/how-to-blow-up-your-youtube-channel-this-weekend-only

Good Afternoon, glad to be part of the community and am excited to get stuck in. I’ve been following Andrew for a good couple of years not but never was part of the time theory course. Is this still available as a legacy product or can the content be published if it is no longer on sale? I’m sure it would help people like myself who are still struggling with procrastination!

🎉 WTF! Two THOUSAND Synthesizers 🎉 The post I made for 1,000 synthesizers introduced the severe Disjointed Knowledge Problem. And how the Synthesizer Revolution is here to fix it. But I've never fully discussed why I'm MADLY in love with Synthesizing. Put simply, I love Synthesizing because it's the best thing I know at giving me what I want. Impact, income, and fun. . We're all playing the Great Online Game. In this game there are many characters you can play. - YouTuber - Consultant - Agency Owner - Influencer - Coach - Dropshipper - Entrepreneur Each character has strengths, each has weaknesses. But there's one that I believe is the best... You see, in any game there's a META. In everything I do, I enjoy finding the META more than I enjoy playing the game! (See first image). And if you’re optimising for impact, income, and fun… Then the current META is being a Synthesizer. Here’s why: --- WHY SYNTHESIZING MAKES THE MOST IMPACT Humans are desiring machines. "I want to be rich." "I want my back to stop hurting." "I want a pony." We are constantly trying to move from Where We Are Now to Where We Want To Go. We call the things that hold us back ‘Problems’. . Impact is created by helping people solve their Problems. And... you guessed it... That's EXACTLY what Synthesizers do. Therefore making massive impact. They privately solve their own problems, then publicly share the solutions. . And there's one word in the above sentence that separates the Synthesizer from other characters like the entrepreneur, consultant, or agency owner. PUBLICLY share solutions. Other characters solve problems. But only for a hefty fee. Synthesizers leverage free content to impact millions.

A year ago I posted a video called "Japan's Anti-procrastination Cafe" and it did decent for me at the time with about 2k views. Now, over a year later, it's being used on "eslbrains.com" to help students learn English. This was not something I was planning when making the video lol, but it just keeps getting views from students going through that course. I even found the questions that students have to answer after watching my video. Just thought this would be a funny share, you never know where your videos will end up!

    @Robin Bäcker Sure, Twitter works. Thanks!

Here's what the journey ahead looks like: Step 1: Make your first piece of content Step 2: Get in the habit of creating Step 3: Make your first dollar Step 4: Get 10,000 followers Step 5: Make $10,000/month Step 6: Financial freedom A note about habits: Reaching all six steps is possible, but it's a long road ahead. If you're only creating content for views, followers, or money, then you probably won't make it. In the beginning, you won't get those things. So you'll quit. The solution is to fall in love with creating. To create out of intrinsic motivation. Because you enjoy it. And just the process of creating helps you. A note about money: Money is important. But I don't think it's our end goal here. Content is growing exponentially. Our attention is limited. The role of the synthesizer becomes more important every single day. Our end goal is to commit to solving the 'disjointed knowledge problem' full-time. Now that's a meaningful goal. A note about $10,000/month: It is possible to earn much more than this through synthesizing, but this is roughly the point where your happiness stops increasing as you earn more. A note about Financial Freedom: The goal isn't to sit on a beach and drink cocktails. The goal is to use this freedom to make art. To create something beautiful for the other people on earth. At this point significant impact can be made. A note about "Celebrations": This community has exceeded my expectations in terms of energy and aliveness. I didn't quite realise how strongly being synthesizers would resonate with you guys. Thank you, sincerely, for your response. I've added a "celebrations" post category. I think this will add to the energy of the group. Whenever you hit part of the roadmap, make a post! We will keep track of how many people are at each level. Also feel free to post other celebrations not on the roadmap. Final notes: This roadmap is definitely not final. If you see any problems with it, comment below. If you can think of anything you think should be added, comment below.

    @Imed Djabi Let's go! Welcome

Audience building is the art and science of making people aware of you and what you have to offer. As outlined here, I believe it’s the most effective use of your time and resources. This post details what I believe is the optimal strategy for audience building. Alex Hormozi, Iman Gadzhi, and Andrew Tate have all recently grown huge audiences using the strategy outlined in this post. The Optimal Audience Building Strategy (OABS) actually contains two sub-strategies. The first is the “Dream 100” strategy. The second is the “Content strategy”. The synergy between both strategies is profound. The Content Strategy will help you win long-term. This is how I got 600,000 subscribers, and made $1,000,000+. The Dream 100 strategy will help you win short-term. This is how I made $100,000+ in 10 days. If you want to make more money soon, and make a lot of money long-term, then I’d recommend you implement both. Ready to start? The first step of implementing both strategies is to write out who you want to attract. We call this your Niche. I’d recommend you do this exercise in the comment section below. Write first “My niche is: ______” The second step is to write out where your Niche gives their attention. If you want to capture the attention of someone, you have to know where their attention goes, so that YOU know where to go. We can split this second step into two sections. First, write which platforms they spend time on e.g. YouTube, Twitter, Linkedin. Second, write which influencers/YouTubers/podcasts/communities/forums they like. “My niche goes on these platforms: _______.” And "My niche consumes: _______.” The Content Strategy is to create for the platforms your Niche is on. The strategy involves creating content that your Niche would love (High Demand) that no one else is making (Low Supply). This strategy has HUGE potential, but you’re not guaranteed to get the attention of the people you’re trying to attract. In this way, you can view this strategy as high risk, high reward. Luckily, the cost to create is low, and the results can be huge, so it’s worth gambling consistently until you get the results you’re looking for. But this can take time.

    @Lola Mure Having a simple sentence that encapsulates almost all you do is important, so you can clearly signal to people who might be interested in what you do. But I've found that it comes after you be yourself. You do things, then look at what you do, and summarise it. Instead of trying to lead with the perfect sentence. Just do the best you can, then act with full force, then look back and summarise what you've done. If that makes sense.

    @Ankush Mittal Write the 100 people/places your audience gives their attention to

This is a thought that I can't get off my mind so I wanted to share. it. It seems to be the recipe for inevitable success. My favorite quote ever is by Andrew Kirby ''How can I make it unreasonable that I do not succeed''. This quote fits really well with what I'm going to say. 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗠𝗿. 𝗕𝗲𝗮𝘀𝘁 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗟𝗲𝗼𝗻𝗮𝗿𝗱𝗼 𝗱𝗮 𝗩𝗶𝗻𝗰𝗶 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝗶𝗻 𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗺𝗼𝗻 They utilize the 1% rule or ''compound effect''. When Mr. Beast was interviewed on his success he explained that in order to become a successful Youtuber, all you need to do is do something better every video 100 times. You can improve 1% every single day. Think about thumbnail brightness, a video hook for the intro, the lightning, audio settings, list goes on. If you improve every day, success is inevitable. Da Vinci did the same thing. He didn't like most painters just paint a 1000 paintings, Da Vinci instead looked at science and engineering. He applied rules that not many did back then such as painting with oil or dissected bodies to understand human anatomy when no one else did. He applied the 1% rule just like Mr. Beast. 𝗖𝗼𝗻𝗰𝗹𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗼𝗻 Analysis paralysis is real. Strive for your first project to suck. Go with the mindset that you're going to keep posting but you HAVE to be 1% better next video. Many do not upload until they feel like it's perfect and then never do. Upload when it sucks, then make it suck 1% less the next video or project.

    What a hero

    This has gotta be added to that Synthesizer resources page you have

My goal for this video was just to beat the previous one. At approx 2.7k views. And it ended up doing a lot better than I expected. Not too long ago, I didn't believe I could do well on YouTube but thankfully this video has busted that belief. And I can see that 1m views is now achievable. The biggest things I learnt from this video: - To spend more time on the topic/and concept before anything else. If I can verbally say it and see interest on peoples faces, then it's got potential. - Only when the topic is interesting, unique and/or trending, I should develop the thumbnail - Make several rough thumbnail drafts and get feedback, before tweaking 2-3 final thumbnails - Once the thumbnail and title looks clickable and interesting compared to other videos in that same category/topic, I should then work on the script and contents - Use more B roll to 'show' my points / message. - Less text on screen. - Avoid jargon or technical talk to keep viewers engaged. - Have a back up thumbnail ready to swap in if the performance isn't going well.

Hey everyone! I am excited to be here and thank you Andrew for making this community! I am super excited to be around like minded individuals. I have always found myself more motivated to wanting to work harder and start something when people around me are on a similar journey. Taking an individual sport and making it feel like a team sport :) I right now create content on Twitter: https://twitter.com/LiamKircher I create content about starting home service businesses(specifically cleaning companies as I own one,) and investing. I am have my own coaching programs and courses that I have 24 students in at this time. I have a lot of limit beliefs with starting my Youtube Channel and that is where I would love leverage this community and grow with others. Twitter is easy as I can type behind a screen but turning the camera on and talking I find a lot harder which has held me back from starting. Anyways.. I am glad to be here and excited to learn and interact with everyone!

    @Liam Kircher Great to see you taking the challenge up Liam. It's actually inspired me to start a group-wide challenge for everyone else who wants to create content but hasn't started.

    @Liam Kircher Done! Thanks for the inspo

A few months ago something clicked in my head, and I understood the severity of the 'disjointed knowledge problem'. I recall painful years of grind and struggle, trying to avoid the shitty life I was on the trajectory towards. Yet no matter how hard I tried, I made no progress. It felt like something was stopping me. I now see that the thing stopping me wasn't external. It was internal. I didn't have the knowledge needed to understand which causes would lead to the effect I so desired. That caused me to waste a lot of time making no progress. And I can see clear pivot points in my life after consuming certain pieces of content. There's an obvious before/after, once someone had imparted their knowledge onto me. So why is there not a better, more efficient way to provide life-changing knowledge to the right people at the right time!? The internet has provided us the technology needed for this to happen. If someone knows the solution to a problem that I have, and the internet has provided the tech needed for that solution to be shared, WHY do I not know about it? Why are there billions of people suffering from problems that have simple solutions? I tried playing my part to solve this by creating my own YouTube channel. If it took me 10 months to learn a lesson, and I could share that with people in 10 minutes, what more value can I bring to this earth? But I soon realised that I was not enough. I don't know everything. In fact, I possess an infinitesimally small amount of the world's knowledge. That's why I created Synthesizer Skool. And I'm incredibly excited to announce we've just hit 1,000 members. Together, we have an absurd amount of power. And if we leverage that power in the right directions, I really believe we can make some magic. This might sound too hypey, but The Synthesizer Revolution is here! EDIT: We've now hit 2,000 members!

    @Benedek Santa Good idea. I think the a great point in idea generation is "just spend more time thinking about ideas"

I wanted to share this video because I thought it was great. I'm sure some of you have watched it already. The guys from "The Editing Podcast" interviewing YouTube's new Creator Liason (whose also a very experienced YouTuber). They go over: - YouTube's different phases: Subscriptions to CTR to retention to viewer satisfaction (why subscribers are irrelevant today) - When to create a new channel and when is ok to experiment on your current one - Why the intro shouldn't be an intro and should be a reward - Story structure: differences between movies, Netflix, and YouTube - How YouTube never gives up on a video and how competitive YouTube is today - Why you need to reinvent yourself to have a long YouTube career - Many more things... Out of everything they talked about, the best insight for me (obvious now, but hadn't thought about it before), was to package the video with a thumbnail and title targeting my core audience for the first week, and then change the packaging to appeal to a more cold audience. The timing should actually be based on returning vs. new viewers analytics, and it will be a more informed and structured decision next year with YouTube's new thumbnail A/B testing. "At the end of the day, YouTube is audience psychology" Hope you like it.

    @David Bridge Yes has been this way for years

    @David Bridge Either because they think it matters, or because it matters to their ego. A better call to action would be "watch this video to the end" or "watch another video of mine"
