9 Ways to Make Money Podcasting
 
10:21
There are several different ways to make money podcasting. In this video, I'll be sharing 9 models that you can choose from (beyond the traditional advertising and sponsorship model) and I'll show you examples of real life podcasts that are using that business model. If you have yet to start your podcast, I suggest taking my free 3-day mini course to help you get your podcast setup at http://www.howtostartapodcast.com When you're starting out, advertising and sponsorships are hard to obtain. You don't have a ton of listeners and you don't have a proven track record, so advertisers are not going to want to work with you. Not yet, at least. These other methods can be implemented right away. Some are easier to setup than others, and while all may not apply to you or the type of podcast you have, all are monetization models that you should learn about so that you can begin to consider how you can start to make money from the hard work you do to produce your show. I would suggest picking one of these methods to start making money with your podcast, and even if you don't have a ton of listeners, you can make this work. -=-=-=-=- Subscribe to this YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=smartpassiveincome -=-=-=-=- Want to learn more about the smart way to make money online and start a successful online passive income business (without ripping people off or being dishonest)?

How to Structure a Mastermind Meeting - SPI TV, Ep. 10
 
09:52
Continuing this month's dedication to mastermind groups, in this episode of SPI TV I break down the format and structure of a formal mastermind meeting. (And yes, I realize I said episode 11 when this is episode 10, hehe!) It's important to have a specific order and timing of what's discussed in a mastermind group meeting. I've been a part of groups without structure, and each of them have completely failed. Whether you attend your meetings in person, or remotely via tools like Skype, Google Hangouts or FreeConferenceCall, the structure I outline in this video can apply and will optimize everyone's time and results in the group. And as a reminder, if you're interested in a more detailed and complete presentation about mastermind groups, visit the link below to sign up for a replay of my Social Media Marketing World 2015 presentation which was all about mastermind groups. If you catch the re-do of the presentation live, you'll be able to ask questions live as well.

My Response to Gary Vee & "Passive Income is B******t"
 
06:41
Gary Vaynerchuk recently published a podcast episode and video about how passive income is BS. This video is my response. I love Gary, and he and his work (especially his book, Crush It) have been instrumental in my success as an entrepreneur, and I'm thankful that he has used his giant platform to bring to light what's out there, and what is actually real. As always, Gary keeps it real, and although we have different styles, you may be surprised about my take on his rant. Here are the links to Gary's "Passive Income is B******t" videos and podcast episode, I recommend you give them a listen: Podcast Episode (direct): https://traffic.libsyn.com/secure/force-cdn/highwinds/askgaryvee/passiveincome_mixdown.mp3 Podcast Episode (on iTunes): https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/why-passive-income-is-b-t/id928159684?i=1000419586084&mt=2 Video (original): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eaAM7UVszHQ Video compilation of other passive income rants from Gary Vaynerchuk Fanpage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_sxhuOdiB1M And make sure you subscribe to Gary's channels here on YouTube: Gary Vaynerchuk: https://www.youtube.com/user/GaryVaynerchuk AskGaryVee: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOEMEjL1GBJ41uCWur5VXWQ Where do you stand on "passive income"?

Affiliate Marketing for Beginners (The Soft Pitch Pipeline)
 
11:05
Affiliate marketing is easy for beginners to understand, but hard to master. In this video I'm going to introduce you to an affiliate marketing model that I've used since 2009 when I began affiliate marketing, that has since earned me over 3 million dollars in affiliate earnings. Affiliate marketing is promoting and recommending products (that are not yours) in exchange for a commission from that company every time you send a new customer over. You're likely already recommending products to your followers online, your friends and your family, so why not start generating income from those recommendations, too. You won't get rich overnight, but after implementing a number of these strategies into your business, you can start to see some significant income come in over time. What's unique about this approach, and what you'll hear as "The Soft Pitch Pipeline", if that everybody is winner in the end. You, the company you sent a new customer, and the new customer, too. You can have these customers thank you for these recommendations you make, too, which is the ultimate goal. Then, you'll earn the trust of your audience and continue to get clicks and affiliate earnings over time because you've learned to do it the right way. Also, don’t forget to download my brand new eBook, Affiliate Marketing the Smart Way! It's my latest FREE guide that summarizes my own years of experience of what works for successfully integrating affiliate marketing into an online business and brand.

How to Plan Anything (So You ACTUALLY Get It Done)
 
04:03
Have you ever started something but never finished? In this video, I'll show you the P.A.T. technique so you can learn how to plan anything and actually get it done. As an entrepreneur, my day is full of creating plans and executing them, and as more and more fill my plate, I've learned a specific planning technique to make sure I finish what I start. If you don't have a "plan for planning" what can end up happening is you'll pile up a number of goals and to-dos that can lead to procrastination, it can have you feeling unaccomplished, and ultimately you might even give up. We don't want that to happen. Use the P.A.T. technique to make sure you follow through on what you start? Once you learn how this works, let me know in the comment section below what you're hoping to plan next, and how this technique might help you.

How to Get More Traffic & Followers (#1 Strategy for 2018)
 
07:40
What's working right now to get more traffic & followers to your website, blog, podcast or videos? It's this simple but powerful strategy I reveal in this video. I've taught this traffic strategy to several of my students who are just starting to build their online platform, and many are using this strategy alone to grow their following and get more traffic. Here is an outline of the foundation for this strategy: 1. New People 2. Unique 3. Trust? 4. Share = N.U.T.S. To clarify something I mention in this video, what I share isn't the only strategy to generate traffic, obviously. I did say that this is "better" than utilizing your own audience for traffic and growth, and I would actually say that's not 100% true (yes, I'm correcting myself). In many cases, utilizing your own audience, especially your SUPER FANS, can do wonders for growing your audience and authority. But, when you're just starting out and you don't have super fans or a large audience yet, this is a great method for building one, fast. Let me know in the comment section below what you think of this strategy, and if you're gonna implement it, tell me that, too :) Good luck! -=-=-=-=- Subscribe to this YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=smartpassiveincome -=-=-=-=- Want to learn more about the smart way to make money online and start a successful online passive income business (without ripping people off or being dishonest)?

10:35
When you're a new entrepreneur, the last thing you want to do is turn someone off (i.e. a potential customer or subscriber) just because you're new to the game. You also don't want your competitors to pounce on you just because you recently "hatched". Too many newbie entrepreneurs have certain "tells" that give off that newbie vibe, and in this video I'm going to give you 7 tips to make sure you can survive during the crucial beginning stages of entrepreneurship. You also have quite a few advantages as a new entrepreneur too, which you may not even realize.

The 3 "BEST WAYS" to Make Money Online
 
10:36
There are lots of ways to make money online, but in this video I'm going to give you my top 3 "BEST" ways to do it. Why do I need to include "BEST" in quotations? Because best can be defined in many different ways. For some, it means the fastest way to make money online. For others, it's what makes you the most money. My definition of best has 3 qualifiers: ✔️Digital Product (so that it can be created and sold/distributed again and again without the hassle of creating actual physical products, shipping, returns, etc.) ✔️Recurring Income (so that you can continued to get paid over and over again from the same customers) ✔️Scalable (so that it can grow with your business) The three examples I give that meet all these qualifiers (in different ways) + a mistake that I personally made with each (so you don't make the same mistake, too): 👉1. Software (2:27) The Smart Podcast Player: http://www.smartpodcastplayer.com 👉2. Membership Site (4:39) "People come for the content, and they stick around for the community." 👉3. Sell Products (7:11) How to Make Money with Affiliate Marketing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nhaw1GN5L0k&list=PLzJ1r4EGn-el9-Y1Bg1FqnMbvVw-6CevW&index=2&t=1s Let me know in the comments which one of these 3 business models of "best ways" to make money online most interest you! -=-=-= OTHER RESOURCES MENTIONED =-=--- ConvertKit: http://www.smartpassiveincome.com/convertkit (this is an affiliate link!)

How to Read More Books (and Stay Consistent!)
 
07:16
Want to know how to read more books? Sweet! You're my kind of person because great readers become great leaders. In this video you'll learn about the two things I do to ensure I have more books in my life. In 2017, I was able to consume a total of 45 books, something I was able to accomplish as a business owner, parent of 2 wild kids, and someone who doesn't hate watching Netflix. It's more than just "turn your phones off" or "have a balanced media diet", so make sure you not only watch, but also take action on what you learn. Reading has become so important to me because for non-fiction, it's how I can quickly learn something that another person took years (usually) to figure out. For fiction, it's a quick way for me to be entertained and escape the whirlwind of life as a parent entrepreneur. Not that I don't love being a parent, or an entrepreneur, but it's nice to fly on a broomstick every once and a while, if you know what I mean. Reading has also allowed me to become a better writer, too. Since creating a habitual reading practice, I've had a much clearer mind when writing blog posts, creating scripts for videos and podcast episodes, and even writing books, too. Also, a big thanks to all of the new subscribers to the channel. Make sure you click the bell icon next to the subscription button to join my notification squad!

What REALLY Happened to My Income Reports

Every month since October 2008 I've been publishing an income report on my blog. In these income reports, I'd reveal how much money I had made in my business, how much I've spent, and exactly the lessons learned that affected my income that month. Click here to see the archive of income reports on the blog since October 2008: https://www.smartpassiveincome.com/income-reports/ Many people say that my income reports, and the transparency that came along with them, is what attracted them to me in the first place. You may have noticed, however, that since January 2018, I've stopped publishing my income reports. But why? In this video, I'd like to share exactly why, and what my plans are moving forward. I'd also love your honest opinion about the direction I share and where things are going. Thank you, Team Flynn.

"I'm Too Old to Start a Business" (Entrepreneur Mindset)
 
04:10
I recently had a coaching call with Richard, an aspiring entrepreneur who told me, "Pat, I think I'm too old to start a business." Watch the video to check out my exact response, and the examples I used of other business owners who started incredible successful businesses at an even older age than he was. It's not about how old you are. It's also not about how competitive a niche is. What matters is that you know you have something of value to offer an audience, a motivation to solve or at least help a person find a solution for a pain or problem they are having. You don't need to be above a certain age, or below one, to be able to become a successful business owner. -=-=-=-=- Subscribe to this YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=smartpassiveincome -=-=-=-=- Want to learn more about the smart way to make money online and start a successful online passive income business (without ripping people off or being dishonest)?

10:18
What I'm sharing with you today is a little embarrassing. I'm revisiting one of my very first attempts at podcasting from back in 2008, as well as all the mistakes—and there are plenty!—I made as a brand-new podcaster. When you're just starting out as a podcaster, there are a daunting number of unknowns: Am I any good at this? Will anyone listen? Will I be able to fill enough episodes with valuable material week after week? I hope this honest look at my early days addresses some of those unknowns. I'll guide you through the most important lessons I learned in my first years of podcasting, the insecurities I had to overcome, and where I turned for help. I also recommend checking out PodcastingTutorial.com, my step-by-step guide to getting started with podcasting.

How to Make Passive Income Online (3 Legit Models From Someone Who Made $5+ Million Online)
 
12:56
Today I'm going to show you how to make passive income online. I'll be showing you 3 different business models that you can choose from to start with so that you can build a business that works for you. If you'd like to see specific examples from several different businesses that I own, here are 9 ways that I earn passive income online: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhgQc70ZV7Y With that said, please read on for some really important information about this desire we all have to earn passive income, because there's a lot of information about it online, and not all of it is true. There are several different definitions of passive income. I'm aware of the traditional definition, such as earnings derived from a rental property, but there's a better way that I have years of experience with and have also taught tens of thousands of others to do. It involves building online businesses that take advantage of systems of automation that allow transactions, cash flow, and growth to happen without requiring a real-time presence. In other words, we don't trade time for money. Instead, we invest our time upfront to create assets in the form of an online business that can continually pay us back later. There are several different ways to achieve this, and the 3 models I share in this video will give you an idea of how you might approach an online business that works for you. COMMON QUESTION #1: Does generating passive income mean you don't have to put in any work to earn money? No. Not at all. Creating various passive income streams takes time and a lot of hard work. It's about building a real business that solves a problem, and creating systems, or hiring people such that it can be run on auto-pilot. COMMON QUESTION #2: Can you create a passive income stream that requires zero upkeep or attention that will pay you back forever. No. All passive income streams, even traditional ones, require some form of upkeep and maintenance. Real estate portfolios and market investments cannot (correction - shouldn't) be walked away from forever, and neither should any type of online business. With that said, however, online businesses can be fashioned in a way so that you can walk away from it for a while and it can still continue to run. An online business is a storefront that is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (even on holidays), and much more than real estate or market investments, building an online business gives you a lower barrier to entry, as well as a lot more potential upside. Just think - how much would an extra $1000 per month help you? Imagine how much it would cost to invest to obtain an additional $1k per month in tradition forms of passive income, while building a business online is much more achievable. Let's do some math to give you some perspective: Imagine you sell a $25 product. You only have to sell 40 of them, per month, to earn an additional $1000/month. Imagine you sell a membership into your program for $25 a month. You only need 40 members to generate an additional $1000/month. But then the next month, you obtain an additional 40 members who also pay you $25/month. Now you're making $2k per month. The most important thing, however, is that whatever product or business you create, that it helps solve a problem. All good businesses solve a problem in some way, shape, or form, so make sure you watch the video to learn exactly how you can approach building a business online of your own.

Pat Flynn from SmartPassiveIncome.com on Fox 5 San Diego

http://www.smartpassiveincome.com - I was blessed to be featured in a spot on Fox 5 San Diego on September 5th, 2012. Correction to the feature: 1) I was actually laid off from my architecture, not fired. 2) The book on the security guard training site is free. That's there to help grow my email list. I earn from that site primarily through advertising and the job board. All good though.

How to Make an Extra $500 (Hint: It Depends on the Math!)
 
09:58
You're looking to make an extra $500 in your business...great! I'm going to show you various business models to help you get there. The math is important because you could sell a lot of things for a small price, or fewer things at a higher price, but what you offer (and therefore, the actions you take) changes as you go up the spectrum. You could collect cans, fill out surveys online or become a "mystery shopper" and get to $500, but I'm not going to talk about those kinds of methods. I want to help you leverage the Internet and build a legitimate business that can help you get to $500 to start, and then scale from there. The most important lesson is this: no matter which payment model you choose, you always have to start with one. One target market. One product or solution. One customer. It all starts with ONE. If you try to do too many different things, or serve too many different people, nothing will have the chance to help you. Here's a breakdown of this video for you: 0:30 - $1 x 500 2:28 - $5 x 100 3:27 - $20 x 25 4:47 - $50 x 10 6:08 - $100 x 5 7:27 - $500 x 1 Which one of these examples resonates the most with you?

World Premiere - SwitchPod Launch Video
 
03:50
15 months ago, we had an idea for an invention. Today, we launch it on Kickstarter! Introducing, SwitchPod! Here's the link to check it out: https://kck.st/2UrCyMz After a dozen or so prototypes and iterations, we're ready to bring SwitchPod to the world! In this video, you're going to see our launch video that will live on our Kickstarter Page. SwitchPod is a minimal and versatile handheld tripod that quickly switches between handheld and tripod mode. Even if this tool isn't useful for you, hopefully it's been fun to watch the journey as myself and my partner Caleb Wojcik launch a physical product, something we've never done before! Follow SwitchPod on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeXHb_0IUJcGFEEHfiVRVww And if you're curious about how this all started, I published a video not too long ago about how this all started and a lot of the lessons learned along the way. You can even see a lot of the earlier prototypes we had: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smqfeBIMMqY

How to Make Passive Income with Affiliate Marketing
 
15:15
Learn my 5 step process for how to make passive income with affiliate marketing, PLUS an example with one of my own products! Affiliate marketing is incredibly powerful, and extremely underutilized by most brands. I'll show you how to do it right to give yourself the best change for long term, passive income. With that said, do realize that although technically affiliate marketing is easy (almost anyone can sign up for Amazon's associates program, for example), it's actually hard to master and get to a point where it can generate significant earnings. By putting these strategies into place now, however, you'll set yourself up for success because after you implement these strategies, they become passive money-makers that can continue to earn for you over time, while you rinse and repeat the process with other products in your recommendation library.

The Troll that Almost Made Me Quit Business
 
11:59
When you build anything online and try to grow a following, you become susceptible to haters and trolls. Some comments you can easily put aside without a worry, but others can completely throw you off track. In this video, I wanted to share an experience I had with a hater, what he did, and how I got out of it. I'm thankful for what I learned along the way because I took everything this person said so personally, I didn't work for weeks, and I had thoughts about giving up. It just didn't feel worth it to deal with. Hopefully you don't have to deal with these kinds of people, but they exist, and maybe one day this video can help you. Have you ever dealt with a hater?
