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
This morning I had a coaching call with the youtuber Hamza, inside his new payed community, about my struggle with creating Youtube videos, but unfortunately I left unsatisfied. I'm gonna tell you here how you can get people to actually help you, whether it is with a high ticket coaching call or just asking a question on a public community like Synthesizer School. But first, let me tell you about the time I started stalking Hamza.. Some month ago, when Hamza was living in Dubia, I was still facing the same exact problem I have today. It didn't let me sleep at night and everyday I was thinking about quitting Youtube. At the time Hamza was charging $10k to get on a direct call with him and I started formuling desperate thoughts. I started thinking about getting in debt. I started to think about which organ of my body I didn't need to survive, so I could sell it. All this just in order to find the money to afford the call. But then I remembered that I knew exactly where he was. At the time he started Fight Cult, so I thought about taking a plane not for a vacation like everyone does, but to meet him in the hope of getting his help. Until the day, 12 hours ago, when I got to talk to the man and couldn't even fucking explain what actually my struggle was. Virtually $10k was lost there. Imagine if I let the bank take everything from me just to have my opportunity and the end not even being able to speak properly. The reason why Hamza wasn't able to help me this morning was not because he didn't have the right answer, but because I made the wrong question. The more specific the question, the more accurate the answer. So, how do you find the right question? By doing introspection first. The best way to do it? Journaling. Journaling allows you to slow your thoughts, and if you slow your thoughts you can analyse better and more deeply, so that you can get to the real core of your problems. "But I'm paying for this, why would I do the work myself before?"
@Callum Rylance @Jack Alderton yes, I talked with him again and I applied what I learned from that experience. It seems that it was one of those times where you need to make the mistake before you can improve. Since then I've just started to make huge progress day after day.
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
So after getting AI to make all of my shorts for me, I'm trying to streamline other areas of my content creation process. My most recent snag is finding music to fit sections of my long-form youtube videos. It just takes bloody ages to find the right songs! (Even when using tools like epidemic sounds). If you've got any tips/hacks/tools you use to make this process less painful, I'd love to hear them. Quietly waiting on an AI tool that will match me songs to specific parts of my vids...
The whole AI thing creates one big problem among creators: if you get too much used to it you start to believe in your mind that everything should be always fast and good. Then, for some things AI itself is even underavarage, at least for the moment. I heard Matt D'Avella or Joey from BetterIdeas tell this, that finding the right songs takes a lot of time in the process. It's a choice between selecting an avarage song just to use one and one that is actually good, which makes a big difference if the sound is an important aspect in your videos.
I see multiple people on here talk about how they don't have much to share, or that they're not sure about what value they have to offer or where to start, or that their content ideas aren't unique or special. But then I see something that they do offer. And it always has something in there that's interesting. Over and over we take what we know for granted, because we know it. Share it, friends. What you have is special. Congrats to all the first-posters on here! 🙌
I'm trying to boost my productivity output by as much as possible. Though I notice that whenever I come back from a heavy session at the gym, the rest of the day usually falls apart. This is partially the reason why I gym later at the day. I've heard people take these Athletic green smoothies but I'm skeptical. Right now I'm fasting 18/6, go to the gym 5 days a week & take 5 minute breaks when I need to but I'm still not as energized as I want though my nutritional intake & sleep is pretty great. What do you do?
In this post, I'm gonna talk you guys through exactly how you can create your first peice of content - by sharing how I did it for myself. (Summary at the end if you don't have time) So I was looking for ways to stop procratinating and creating a video, I was reading books like Show your work, going to my fav youtubers' channel and going to look at their first ever video to see how shit they were at creating content, and a gazillion other things But I still was procrastinating on hitting the record button. I didn't know what I was gonna talk about, I didn't know why would people listen to me, I didn't know how I'm gonna make the video look pretty. How could I compete with all the youtubers that have - a full time team, money to have the best production quality, and storytelling skills that they've built over the course of the 100s of videos they've made? The goal with creating content with me is to gather a bunch of people that I can network with, gain financial independence, live my best life and provide for my loved ones. Which means if I don't create content - 1. I'll have no friends 2. No money 3. Shit life 4. Can't provide shit for anyone. I had to create content. Even if I didn't create 10 videos, I had to create one and just press publish because I always let fear guide me. The more I fear something, the more likely it is to change my life and help me grow. BOOM - I came accross this video from Andrew https://youtu.be/qPTPJGzZGPY?t=158 In the video he mentions that he literally read out a blog post to create his first youtube video. At first I found that hilarious and stupid, but was it? If I could copy a script - I didn't have to write it which means less friction between me and that first ever video. Guess what I did - I took 2 things from Andrew 1. His advice 2. His script for a video that he made ;) Found one video from Kirby's channel that didn't have a lot of views and wrote down everything he said word-by-word (should've used a transcribing software)
We all have a super power and you can use it today. 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗽𝗼𝘄𝗲𝗿 𝗼𝗳 𝗾𝘂𝗶𝗰𝗸 𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗰𝗵 When I listened to a podcast called ''How to take over the world'' I immediately fell in love and knew ''this guy is going to make it one day''. Turns out the guy who hosted this podcast also had connections with people like MrBeast, Sam Parr, James Clear and Alex Hormozi. Just because I knew him, if I had questions I could indirectly get incredibly valuable information. How did I do it? I messaged Ben on Twitter and said ''This is my expertise, I will work for you for free''. We hopped on a call, the next thing you know I had my own business e-mail provided by the podcast. 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗰𝗮𝗻 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗱𝗼? The message isn't ''go out and ask people if you can help them'', but instead: Go to people you admire, do work for them and send it. Then suggest something along the lines of: ''I'd love to continue to provide value to you, no charge''. 𝗕𝘂𝘁 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗶𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝘆 𝗷𝘂𝘀𝘁 𝘂𝘀𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂! I've heard this one all the time, but I find this rather silly. The whole idea behind this is the crazy ROI you get. Let's say 1 out 10 people will allow it and give you a spot. You've spent maybe 10-15 hours producing work. That will turn into incredibly valuable connections. Once you get to work with these kind of people, almost always will they want to honour your work in a more valuable way. Even a shout out from these people can turn your 10K sub Youtube page into a 100K sub page in a few days. Imagine if MrBeast shouted out your Youtube channel, how would that blow up? That's the value of this superpower. In conclusion, you have a super power. Use it. What can you do? Great at taxes? Appointment setting? Visual art? A.I? Coding? Great at turning leads into clients? Entrepreneurs need all sorts of things you can help them with. Do it for free and you'll be baffled by the return.
This is incredibly inspiring. I did this too at the beginning of my journey. The only thing is that I couldn't get in contact directly with the people I was interested in, so I took initiative and just started creating straight away for them the work I had in mind to help them to do, in the hope of them noticing me and reaching out to me. That's how I created Jordan Peterson Italia and Hamza Italia. And even tho it didn't get me to work directly with those men, I learned a lot simply by pushing myself in the unknown.
Hey guys, I've been doing YouTube for almost 2 years now. It's a slow but steady progress. I thought about quitting many times, but I stayed consistent. I decided to share my latest video here to ask for feedback. If you have any suggestions on improving my YouTube videos, please let me know in the comments :)
Great work, you deserve a lot more honestly! But I'm surprised nobody made you notice this yet: the audio quality of your speaking. The audio quality is really important. People usually can overlook the video aspect, but it's very difficult with the audio one. I was watching with headphones and it didn't match the rest. You can see you put a lot of work in preparing the content and that you invested a lot of money and attention on camera + location, like you're already at the professional level of successful youtubers, but then the audio is not optimized. I see you use a lavalier. I have that too and I found that indoors it's better without the sponge covering the mic. With it the audio sounds like it's not completely clear. Try yourself and see if you see improvements.
Most of my 600,000 subscribers on YouTube came from my videos about Stoicism, Productivity, Personal-Development, and Dopamine Detoxing. These people are young men with a dream. They want money, status, a good body, and female validation. They watch Hamza, Andrew Tate, and now Iman Gadzhi. They are addicted to instant gratification, but have started fighting back. They've started going to the gym. They've started meditating, but can't seem to keep the habit. As much as I love talking about those topics, I found myself more in love with the art of Synthesizing how to play the Great Online Game. That's when where the Synthesizer community comes in. These people are actively trying to create a lucrative career playing the Great Online Game. They want to find something they love to do that pays them well. They want to help people similar to them solve problems they've suffered with. They like Naval Ravikant, and Alex Hormozi. They are a very different group of people compared to my audience on YouTube. So here's the question... - Should I create for my old audience, or my new audience? If I create for my YouTube audience, I'm talking about topics I'm less passionate about. If I create for my Synthesizer audience, I'm talking about topics I'm more interested in, BUT I'm sacrificing a lot of work I put in earlier.
Thanks for all the feedback on my thumbnail yesterday, after a call with Benedek Santa today, I feel like we have improved it a lot. Here is a picture of the new title and thumbnail in among other YouTube video's (Top left corner), let me know what you think of the the updated version! (Title was inspired by one of Andrew's video's)
