Hey guys! I want start offering coaching calls today and I’m not quite sure how to set it up regarding the tools in the backend. So far, I an building my landing page on carrd and got the clickable button but I could use some advice on how to sell the coaching call. I have created a gumroad page and also have calendly and stripe done but how do I connect all that stuff and how can I make sure to be safe legally? Especially how can I integrate calendly booking after someone bought my package on gumroad? If you have better tools or processes for the stuff I also happily switch, I just watched some tutorials using gumroad. I just want to sell calls from a landing page, pretty basic. Thanks for your help!
I've been trying to make it as a content creator and I've always received abnormally low views on my YT compared to other channels with similar or worse content quality. --> https://www.youtube.com/@BlaiseBowly I've been trying to figure this out for a long time so last year I created a TikTok and started posting funny videos in Hungarian that had nothing to do with business and I've crushed it. Like viral videos one after another. --> https://www.tiktok.com/@idegbetegvok Lately, I've changed the topic to educational as an experiment and those went viral too to my surprise. Then I moved to Switzerland and after three weeks, my views started to drop like crazy. The first hour is okay and it shuts it down after. One may think that it's just a shadow ban or something but honestly, I'm hitting 90%+ FYP and that's never the case with shadowbann. I ran some tests and research and I believe the algo first shows my Hungarian videos to ppl here in close proximity (Swiss, German) and then it pushes it to my audience in Hungary. Therefore the first few views (10,100) are all from ppl who don't understand my videos --> this will give a low-quality score and never push which will put the video into a category and to me it seems like no matter how well it performs after it won't let it go viral (shuts it down after 2 hours). Now comes the interesting part. What if other platforms (YT or IG) have similar techniques to decide whether or not a video goes viral? Let's assume one creates English videos from a country where the primary language is not English. First, it might show the video to some people from the target country and then to some neighbouring countries before pushing it to the US or UK. Now one might argue that these platforms know who speaks English (after all it's a targeting option when someone is running ads) but I highly doubt it actually knows how well those ppl speak right? I mean some ppl might enjoy funny or entertaining videos in English but prefer to learn in their mother tongue. And the more specific or complicated the topic is the less likely that someone will want to consume it with weak English. Even if I were to run ads for English-speaking people in Hungary the comments would show that they are not a master of the language.
👋🏻 Hey fellow Synthesizers Hope you had a great Thanksgiving and black Friday 🙏🏼 I've started posting video content on LinkedIn (and other platforms) but I've only put auto captions on videos. With lesser known apps such as Zeemo, subera and recently filmora If you have any tips, tools, Apps and websites (preferably free) That can help me, i'd highly appreciate them ❤️
Me too! I needed an easy tool that was a bit more flexible/faster than iMovie (I don't want to get bogged down with learning any 'intense/professional' editing software at the moment). I came across this relatively simple editing software called Descript: https://www.descript.com/ Been using it for my past few videos and it has made the process a lot easier/quicker. Kinda limited in its capabilities, but it makes relatively 'simple' editing pretty painless. Some of the main perks: - Transcribes your entire video - You can edit your video with the transcribed text - It's able to remove filler words and silences Has anyone messed around with this tool or has found easy editing software for n00bs like me that they like to use? This post is not sponsored 🙃 Just thought it was cool to share 😎
I have time till the end of the year to start earning with Youtube, before my savings end. But my plan with Youtube is in decades and I want to avoid making video with a scarsity mindset ‘cause it will impact negatively. So I’m thinking about finding a side job, at least temporarily. I want to find a good job, in sales, so that in the meanwhile I can make good money and be able to buy for my grandma the house we are living in for rent. What is the best way to find these kind of jobs?
Being stoic is being calm and almost without any emotion. When you're stoic, you don't show what you're feeling and you also accept whatever is happening. The noun stoic is a person who's not very emotional. The adjective stoic describes any person, action, or thing that seems emotionless and almost blank

I was listening to My First Million Pod (https://youtu.be/HVAQa0j-bUc?si=FJjqmfW1suBHLN4P) and they were talking about Franchising an online service based business. This is how it works: Let's say Andrew is a fitness creator who has a unique approach to coaching that ppl love and he has a strong brand around it. But he's constrained by the time he spends on coaching. So Andrew creates a training program teaching his special workout methods, coaching style and philosophy. People who join his franchise get access to this training, his workout plans, and ongoing support. Since Andrew has a traffic, he could hand these franchisees some customers and make them fulfill the demand he generated. Assume Andrew is smart and he also has a community of clients, he can also use these franchisees to promote his community and add more value. Now, Andrew's income streams look like: 1. His coaching program 2. A community 3. The Brand Licensing mode 4. Franchise's profit percentage End of story. Let me know what you think.
Chris Williamson and James Smith collectively have almost 4 million followers on what seems to be their preferred social platforms (Instagram + YouTube). This Friday, November 3rd, they're launching a product together. However, what that product is, is yet to be revealed. Curious what others think of this type of marketing, essentially marketing a mystery. On one hand I am intrigued to know what the product is, but I'm not invested. Where as previously creators have revealed what the product is and then continued to reveal different parts of it and how it can benefit you in the lead up to its launch, at which point I am fully invested come launch day. Curious, what do you think of this type of marketing? Yay or Nay?
I was also shocked to hear that yesterday @ 4 PM, OpenAI's Board fired Sam Altman. As well, OpenAI co-founder, Greg Brockman and 3 senior researcher quit shortly after Sam was fired ... tis reminiscence of when Apple fired Steve Jobs!! In OpenAI’s blog, they stated Altman’s departure follows a “deliberative review process by the board ... that Altman wasn’t consistently candid in his communications with other board members ... hindering its ability to exercise its responsibilities.” Also read from Greg's X/Tweet: - "Last night, Sam got a text from Ilya asking to talk at noon Friday. Sam joined a Google Meet and the whole board, except Greg, was there. Ilya told Sam he was being fired and that the news was going out very soon. - At 12:19pm, Greg got a text from Ilya asking for a quick call. At 12:23pm, Ilya sent a Google Meet link. Greg was told that he was being removed from the board (but was vital to the company and would retain his role) and that Sam had been fired. Around the same time, OpenAI published a blog post." >> https://twitter.com/gdb/status/1725736242137182594 >> https://nymag.com/intelligencer/2023/11/why-was-sam-altman-fired-as-ceo-of-openai.html My $.002 Rupees >> When Microsoft became a stakeholder in OpenAI, something told me, "Profits OVER People's Safety." Why do you think OpenAI Board fired Sam?
I have been building my YouTube channel for nearly 8 years now and have reached a subscriber count of 280,000 with over 30 million views. I teach home improvement with a huge emphasis on Drywall so I started courses on a website I called the Drywall Academy. It’s at www.drywallacademy.com if you want to check it out. I said it up with a free level and then a bronze, silver and gold level and will provide more advanced training at the higher levels. I currently have it set up as a membership but I’m going to make most of the courses available for a one time purchase also. For several years I have been building an email list and I have close to 2000 people in that list. I also gave away a free e-book on my Drywall Academy and so far I have around 300 people on that email list. Now I’m in the process of learning how to build the course out to properly solve my viewers problems and give them the education they want. The second huge challenge is how to properly market the course and get the word out. I am just now learning that and feel I have a long ways to go. If anyone has any advice on articles or videos to help me in that direction, it would be appreciated. I also released an e-book and paper book on Amazon about understanding and choosing the proper drywall tools and materials so I also have to market that and promote it. Thank you. Guy Purcella
This is a story so audacious, so over-the-top ridiculous, that it almost doesn't seem real. Heck even I'm still struggling to believe it's real, but for anyone with an open mind, here we go.. I first discovered Andrew in 2020. He was posting videos about productivity and self-help, and I found them incredibly valuable, so I stuck around and subscribed. But soon enough I realized he was selling a cohort program on beating procrastination. This immediately struck a chord with me, not just because it seemed like he could help me with my procrastination, but because he was someone, only about 2 years older than me, who was able to start a successful YouTube channel and launch a successful digital coaching product. To me, Andrew Kirby represented hope. Hope that I wasn't being a silly 19 year old, that young people my age could actually get success in the business space. So I ALSO started a procrastination business (lol). I marketted myself on Facebook and actually got my first few clients! (In my case I was providing less of a permanent solution to the problem, and more so direct accountability haha) However I soon realized the whole "coaching" space definitely wasn't for me. At this point in my life, I was feeling lost, and isolated. Then Andrew released his "Effortless Action Program", a $500 version of his procrastination program that was just a course. I immediately bought and devoured it. Although it wasn't what I was expecting, I was feeling unusually introspective and philosophical afterwards. Upon reflection, it became apparent I wasn't going after my true calling. I realized I was a filmmaker at heart, and it was time to make my inner child happy. With little money and resources, what better way to start, than to just start? I began making YouTube videos (Something I had already been doing as a kid/teenager for fun, it's really crazy It took me so long to understand where I should be working) I started a new channel, and let's just say my first few videos took some.. inspiration from Andrew's content😅
Hey everyone! Anyone experienced with buying the first followers to make it "easier" for real potential subscribers to click the button? I just posted my first YT Video, Tweets and IG pics and have 0 - 5 followers so far. My hypothesis is that if I buy 100 followers on every platform I use, I will have a bit more social proof and people are way more likely to follow simply because of the bigger number. 100 is a small 3 digit one and would not look that weird compared to almost no likes on my stuff since likes are rare on most stuff anyways. Anyone experienced with this? My biggest concern is that it might screw up the algos
Hey dear Synthesizers, I am Tobi from Germany and I am suffering from bulimia for almost ten years. I wanted to start an online business and YouTube Channel for almost two years but procrastinated heavily because I did not believe in myself because I thought that my addiction turns me into a worthless idiot. I have registered my business this Wednesday and also created my Youtube Channel, Instagram and X account which are supposed to be the marketing traffic drivers for my Website which I want to use for affiliate marketing and coaching and maybe digital products in the future after growing an audiende. However, I am 26 years old now and I still struggle with the believe that I have already kinda wasted my life and I am too late to the party. I work part time in consulting and study Business Administration on Saturdays but I feel like this stuff just enslaves me rather than frees me. Nonetheless, I want to finish my degree and keep my job until I can live from online money because I would fall into panic mode if I "burn the ships". Anyone in here also wanted to transform himself and document the journey for others who suffer from the same stuff or who also struggled with the "I am too old" limiting beliefs and feeling of being too late to the game and having wasted ones life already? This stuff really kicked me into a dark time recently and I want to use business ans fitness to get me out of it and also support my parents with additional income, however, I have zero followers yet. Sorry for the rant but I hope someone with similar experiences can give me a new perspective and maybe even help me overcome my depression and feeling of being kinda lost in life Thanks so much and yours sincerely Tobi
Tired of just consuming content and never creating? Time to flip the script - strategize less, create more. Real power lies in application. Let me explain... See, Viewing won't improve you, only doing. Growth happens hands-on, not eyes-on. Enough tutorials - it's time to walk the walk. Strategize less, create more. The journey is made by miles, not miles watched. Your power activates through application, so get up and at it!
I was always of the opinion that when uploading a video I'll have to make sure it's 'perfect' or else I would not upload it.. But I was wrong, progress>> perfection any day and I realised that if I'm consistent with the upload then there will be some improvement even though small with each upload and that'll take me closer to perfection. Since then I'm focusing on learning small things through each video and improvising.. Sharing one of my recent videos, any constructive criticism is welcome!!
I saw this post from @Paul Gray and it made me think, our generations biggest problem is overstimulation (probably this is why videos about Dopamine Detox and Outwork Everyone By Being Bored gets so much views). We are aware of the problem, and even the solution, the only thing is that the solution is too painful, and after a while I find myself going back to old habits enabling the recommended feed on youtube, re-following people on Twitter and I'm back at the same position, I think this is a belief problem, we believe that watching educational youtube videos are more productive than boredom, and we justify to our brain to indulge in pleasure. but in reality, you already know what to do you already have the necessary information, it's just your brain creating the perfect sales letter on why you should watch that Sam Ovens video again instead of working. I believe the answer is boredom and dopamine detox mode. but first on boredom, our current default state is distraction, when we spend all day in front of the computer and it's our default state we will find ourselves checking emails and social media between tasks, I believe instead we should be more intentional about our tech use, and only sit down in front of the computer when we need to do something, and there is a clear intention, if you don't have any intention just go on a walk, sit down, be with your thoughts, and journal, this will help you be more mindful and consume content more intentionally (if you decide to do that) Now onto dopamine detox mode: it's a period of your life, when you are super conscious about the cheap dopamine you let into your life. Do you really need to bring your phone to the toilet? Put that mayonnaise on the food? Or listen to that business podcast while you do chores around the house? sometimes the answer is yes, but more often than not, our brain just justifies these stuff, to get more dopamine but avoiding the cheap dopamine maybe more productive than the stuff you learn in that business podcast. I believe mindfulness is more important than the extra knowledge because if we are always busy we won't let our brains come up with new creative ideas.
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...

Henry Ford networth at its PEAK was $22 Billion Dollars 🧑💼🚗 This is his Biggest Business Secret... A Thread 🧵 Ford grew up on a farm in rural Michigan. As a young man, he was fascinated by machinery and left home to become an apprentice machinist. He later found work at the Edison Illuminating Company, where his mechanical talents caught Thomas Edison's attention. Edison encouraged Ford to keep tinkering, telling him "there's a great future in the gas engine." Ford went on to build his first car prototype in 1896. Over the next few years, he made improvements to his design and incorporated the Ford Motor Company. At the time, cars were a luxury item for the wealthy. Ford envisioned making them affordable for the average person. Ford lived by the 80/15/5 rule - if you ask 100 people about a product: • 80 can't describe their needs • 15 have mild detail on needs • 5 know their needs exactly/what to buy Ford didn't solve a problem for the last 5. He created a new market for the 95%. The Model T embodied this vision. Its moving assembly line allowed Ford to produce cars efficiently and lower costs. By following the 80/15/5 rule, Ford transformed the automobile from an elitist toy to an essential part of modern life. Here are brief key lessons an entrepreneur can take from Henry Ford's story: - Keep product simple and reliable - Constantly refine and improve - Leverage technology to enable scaling - Relentlessly reduce costs - Democratize access to your product
