We’ve been doing a lot of soul searching and have been upgrading our lives in different ways. We’re also still continuing to get insights and help from our friends and podcast guests, which is one of the main benefits of what we do.

Joe Fier & Matt Wolfe - Is Affiliate Marketing A Legit Business?

Hustle And Flowchart - Tactical Marketing Podcast

What’s up, Hustle & Flowchart community?! We’re back with another therapy session and moving forward we are not only upping the frequency of these shows but want to make it more focused. On today’s show, we are diving into one of our favorite topics, affiliate marketing. We’re talking about how, after listening to one of our most popular therapy sessions from last year, we revisited what we are doing in the business, applied the 80/20 rule to our actions, and are making the necessary adjustment moving forward to focus on what we really love doing best - the platform building and building the audiences, and once we’ve built the audiences, showing people how we did it and tools that we used to do it. We also talk about some recent changes we made to our PodHacker membership, our love for our new studio and how it’s helped us to better manage our time, as well as a super cool Key Step Tutorial strategy and how we used it recently, promoting one of our favorite new tools, Conversion.ai. This is a great strategy that is not overwhelming to put in place, really targets those in your audience that are interested in what you are promoting, and is something that anything can do in their business. As always, we’d love to hear your thoughts as we appreciate you coming along with us on our journey! Don’t forget to check out our previous episodes where we discuss our affiliate marketing strategies: The Tools We Use For Affiliate Marketing and Unapologetic Affiliate Marketing Strategies.  “It really was a point where we actually had an ideal business model right there, and we were very close to it, where we didn’t have to do much. But we let it almost grow in ways that we didn’t want that load on us.” - Joe Fier “We really enjoy the platform building and building the audiences, and once we’ve built the audiences, showing people how we did it and tools that we used to do it.” - Matt Wolfe Some Topics We Discussed Include: Whose face should join us in our podcast studio? The realization after our 80/20 analysis Discussing and reviewing a conversation we’ve had previously Our super cool KST strategy which can be done in different modalities Getting our content calendar dialed in Going down the rabbit hole on YouTube One huge benefit of the podcast as an online journal A big change for PodHacker that really benefits our members The actions that are almost guaranteed to make the most money Our Resources: Check out Aaron Fletcher’s KAD method PodHacker Conversion.ai References and Links Mentioned: Are you ready to be EPIC with us?!

Your Secret Weapon For Radical Personal & Business Growth w/ Matt Wolfe & Joe Fier

The Mind Of George Show

having a great partner, someone who is very system oriented. I think a big thing for us is that as long as we're communicating both of what we see individually, cause our skill sets are totally different. these realizations came out and maybe like some psychedelics and things were involved at some points and we had realizations along the way, but it's been a slow journey to get to where we're really good at communicating with each other. we've always been together as business partners sometimes, but always supporters. I feel like we were always getting our back no matter what. We've always been able to bounce feedback back and forth to each other. we do share a vision, like there's this overlap of where we are going, but we, with healthy understanding of ourselves and how we actually combine how we talk with each other, what we're working on, how we're working, why we're doing things that was like a total burst of clarity for us.And then it was just communicating with each other and figuring out how to make this thing work. one of the things that I realized this was through just like the use of social media and stuff is when I would post stuff to Facebook. I used to just only share the wins. I would talk about Hey look, how many downloads we got on our show? Look how big this launched it for us. Look how much money we made. I would just share off all the, share, all the wins and stuff. And, you'd get people that are like, eh, congrats  and, you get the likes on it and stuff. But where I really got high engagement on social media was when I shared the struggles, right? Like there, there was one time where Joe and I were actually at a networking event and I, I'm a fairly introverted person and I struggled with social anxiety when there's a lot of people around.And I actually fainted in the middle of a networking event. I was just walking. I wasn't drinking. I just had a water in my hand and I just collapsed and fainted because the anxiety got the best of me. And I shared that story on Facebook and it's the most liked commented on the most support messages I ever received through PMs. And I feel like sharing this sort of like authentic truth that really happened to me was this catalyst for people wanting to reach out and support. And it was in maybe, that was a big pivotal moment for me, but it was in moments like that where I realized like, why am I only sharing this stuff? People need to see the bad, just as much as they need to see the good people need to see look like, we might on the podcast at times have this persona that we've got shit figured out. I think the reason people really follow us and gravitate to our podcasts now is to listen to it, realize these guys don't have their shit figured out.Matt and I were creating like 30 something pages, every single month of unique content in this thing. And we scaled it to a point where it was doing well. It's about a hundred dollars a month is what we were charging at the peak. And we just had a problem scaling it. And we just there's something in us. Matt has created a ton of online products and we're just like, We want to open up the flood Gates and get this content that we think is really good and helpful because we hear the feedback from folks, but we want to give it to more people and spread it to the world and not have it behind a paywall. So that's where, Matt was already doing the podcast. We're already doing affiliate marketing stuff. So we figured let's do the hustle podcast. We called it hustle and flow chart and we realized, okay, we have a really cool network. We're really connected. A lot of the people that I was clients with where some of our preliminary, our first guests. It started with that motivation is to give more than we ever have before. And trust that through the giving, we're going to create enough awareness branding and community around us, a connection relationships to these folks that are actually going to stick with us and listen to us and we'll see where it goes from there.  Let's leverage this podcast as a way to get free consulting out of all the people that we think are really smart. So we just started chasing up people that have the solutions to problems we had in our business when we were trying to figure out Facebook ads and really go deep on that we had, five or six different Facebook ad experts on over the course of a couple of months when we were trying to figure out how to get better copy on our website. We interviewed a bunch of copywriters all in the same month and we were just totally. Looking to bring on people that could give us information that would support our business with the realization that if it helped us, it would help anybody who's tuning into the podcast as well. And during that phase where we just kinda got selfish and we just went, let's just solve the problems that we have in our own business and let other people listening to people, giving us that advice. That was probably the largest stretch of growth we've ever had in our podcast. That was the time when our podcast just grew by leaps and bounds, and people started talking about it. People started sharing it. And that was probably also the evolution where we started to realize.It started to feel very monotonous. So we added like a new filter into the podcast and went, if we're not having fun, we need to start wrangling this and redirecting what we're doing with the podcast. And so now one of our biggest filters is, how do we make sure that these episodes are going to be a blast for us? So we are pumped to go and record them because we're big proponents of the idea of it. There's no specific destination that we're shooting for. We want to have fun on this ride where it ends up that's, wherever it ends up, I'm sure we're going to be happy with the destination, but it's more important that we enjoy this journey right now because who knows. We may not ever make it to a destination. So that's been the big focus now is. Hey, still being selfish and solving problems that we have in our own business and solving problems. We know that our customers and our listeners have brought up to us. Solving problems on their behalf as well, but also just making sure it's always a blast.I had this realization where the weight of the world isn't on your shoulders.In fact, the entire world is all in this together. We're all one big soul that's all together. And I know this is going to sound real. Woo. But that's please do we're all in this just giant soup together. And we're all just like this one being, and the only thing that's different is we each have these individual sort of souls that kind of think independently, but I realized that we're all this sort of attached single.Think about a computer and a computer might have multiple processors. It's all part of the same computer, but the processes are all processing different information and then feeding it back to, the hard driver, whatever. And I felt like the world and the human race were this like giant computer and everybody was its own like sort of CPU providing data to the bigger computer, if that makes sense. And that realization. Brought me to this conclusion that, Oh shit, we are all in this together. There's nothing that's really on my shoulders. And that experience opened me up to actually have relationships with a lot of other people. It wasn't from that moment. It wasn't until that moment that I started getting like really comfortable opening up to other people and having a really sort of vulnerable conversations with people that maybe this is the first time I ever met him. I, that would have never ever happened with me before that experience. But that experience and realizing that. Like shit, we're all just part of the same machine. And I'm just like a little teeny piece in this machine. That realization was actually this massive weight lifted off my shoulders. And when that realization came across my brain, I just broke down and I cried for two hours and I was just bawling and just all emotions. We're dealt a set of cards. Your cards were, hold it together. A way to the world everybody's successful live to meet it. Mine was, everybody was a shit show and I have to hold it together, but we ended up with the same belief about ourselves. Then we have to hold it together. We can't show emotion. We have to be strong. If it's going to get done, it's up to us.what's really happening is when we choose this path of like self-awareness and growth, what we're choosing is to rediscover our ability to express emotion and the depression, the anxiety, the Dow, and all the stuff that came up was basically just from the suppression of what was happening on the inside. It's like we have a gasket exploding and we're pushing it down. Do I feel like shit? It's like the check engine lights screaming, and we're like ignore. And then we get pissed off when the engine block explodes. we are all out of integrity with something, all of us. And there is no such thing as perfect integrity. There's the pursuit of integrity. And the pursuit of integrity is what gives meaning to our life. Your life and meaning, and presence is the value that you bring to this world is your pursuit of this integrity over and over.So I practice and I challenge all and have to go sit for one hour with nothing. You have to practice boredom, notebook, no music, no TV. You have to go somewhere alone and you have to watch your thoughts. You can't try to remember anything you can't leave. And 20 minutes later take notes. You actually just have to be a witness to yourself. You can watch a river, you can watch a bird, but you just have to observe for an hour. And I have never seen so many people. What can I do this? What about this? Can I bow? I was like, this is hilarious. It was this massive amount of resistance because it's a forced break pedal. And in that gap, in that space is where our clarity comes. Either our clarity that this is working, this is our next idea. Or this is not working, which for me always brought up it's not working cause I'm bad or wrong. And it's no, it's not working. Cause I'm not taking the time to reflect, to figure out what did work, what didn't work and trust myself and intuition to choose what moves next

How I Get 87% Open Rates On My Emails w/ Matt Wolfe & Joe Fier

The Mind Of George Show

Email systems makes easyWhen we think about email, the first thing to remember is most people think the purpose of email is to sell on my list, that's number six. Because in order to sell an email, what do they have to do to open it? What determines if they open it? Is it the content in the email? Is it the subject line? It's the relationship with the name?Most people overcomplicate email. With no appropriate evidence to do and it's really the simplification of the thinking process that makes this easy. But when we think about somebody giving us their email, it always comes asking for something in exchange. So there's an expectation. We have a fiduciary duty to deliver it. When we think about email, the purpose of email is to create a container or a journey that guarantees that you promise that you deliver on what was promised or gives them the best possible solution. You need to create the process and the container that helps them with that process. You need to create the process and the container that helps them with that process. And this doesn't necessarily mean that you have to email them 30 days in a row, but you have to create this environment that they can get there. So that's the first thing. It's just the thinking. And so when we give somebody a lead magnet or we're doing lead gen, and whatever reason we're doing lead generation, there's something that they are expecting to receive in return.And then we also have to understand that when we're in this world of attention, People are scrolling. There'll be on social media, they'll see an ad, they'll hear your podcasts. And they're going to have this dopamine of I want that right now, but that doesn't mean they're going to take action on it right now. And the amount of times they're like, I want it right now. I hit their inbox and then they never even download the PDF. They never even upload the video. They never do any of it. So they have this negative experience. So we just want to understand the human nature. On the other side of this, we are trying to meet them where they are. They came and opted in. They asked for something where I see where you are and then we have to understand what breadcrumbs are required to take them out of. What's comfortable for them out of what is in their life and help them achieve the change that they're looking for or the awareness that they're looking for around their information they're looking for.Customize a customer journey. For example email one, step one duration direction, step to figure out what path you need to design and then start designing it. And every path for me always starts with email one. Congratulations. Welcome to the family. Email two, we give preparatory commands. And then email three, if it's duration. You always want to think about is every email takes somebody on a journey. Every one of them, it meets them where they are. It gives them a topic idea. A focus tells them where they want to go and then gives them one call to action to get them there. Psychology EmailLike just behavioural psychology and the way that we work as human beings, when we come seek something, I'm going to give you something in exchange for something. We are advocating our safety and accountability to the person we're doing it with. There's a part of us. It's something's not working. I need something. I want to learn something. These are the people that I'm trusting with my email to deliver what was promisedWhen we think about email, the first thing to remember is most people think the purpose of email is to sell on my list. That's number six. Because in order to sell an email, what do they have to do that? The opening, what determines if they open it? Is that the content in the email? No. Because they can't get there. Is it the subject line? No. Because you can be a sleazy as you want. It's the relationship with the name that hit their inbox that determines if they even get to the subject line, which then determines if they even open the email, which then determines if they even read the content to then determine if they even take the action. But people will talk about all the logical ways to sell, selling is feeling not thinking. So the questions are, is what do I want people to feel when they open an email?If you go into your inbox, you open your inbox. And however, your relationship is with your inbox. If you don't see an email, there's an email that you look for every day, why expectations, expectation, relationship value, right? And then there's days that you open your email and every single time you see an email from this one person or this one place, the first thing you do is delete it, more than one but you won't unsubscribe. Because they still have a thread of a relationship to pull that they don't realize that they broke with you. And then there's the third one it's immediately like spam or unsubscribe. you have to remember is that an email is just a relationship. It's a text message. Email marketing is easy when you understand it, email marketing is easy, but what happens in an email is a relationship. Litmus did a study on this 60% of people that say, no, I'm sorry. 37% of people that see your name in their inbox, never opened your email, but then go to your website based on the relationship with you and that email. It's not about selling. It's about understanding that relationship. First email dictates the success of the next emails. You set the context of the relationship with that first email. And so I always use a first date analogy. If I ask you guys to go on a date with me and you say, yes, and I disappear, you don't know where to meet me and when, and it never happens. So from that point forward, every time I try to reach out to you, you don't respond.  When we think about like design thinking, if you're into thinking processes, design thinking is the biggest way to break down this into a feasible way. We'll tend to be like, what do we do? Design thinking says, get rid of that and get what might we do because can we do as you're. Current level of thinking might create this curiosity and this freedom mind. And so people will be like I have to write these long emails. Says who? Do you write three paragraph texts every time you text your friends?Email is easy. What gets stuck is people like email's hard. Email's hard. So we don't send one, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy, because you're just further disconnecting yourself from the people who pay your bills. So what might it look like and what might be missing? Because the level of thinking and what you designed to get to a hundred opt-ins a day is not going to get you to a thousand. Because what you solve for were the ones that wanted the quick hit and the dopamine, but now you have people that are further away not ready to go. What would that journey look like? What would happen on the front? What would I need to do? What would those emails need to look like? How would they bring their friends at how would I create accountability? And what we tend to focus on is we try to get more people to feed something that actually is showing us that it's incomplete.So when we think about email, we think about customer journeys. We think about products. Why do free trials work so well when done correctly? Because they get to taste it. Why does samples work when done so well, because they get to experience it. And so once you get a taste of it, it shifts your thinking because you had an experience, not a thought. So what we have to remember is that human beings want to be led. People don't pay for the best products they pay for access and accountability.
