Hearing the stories of Jonathan and Devesh over the last few weeks has been extremely motivating for me.

Two regular dudes.

Both hustling hard.

And both breaking through online by following the Santa Claus formula.

But here is the rub…

Many of you have tried to do the same thing and have completely failed.

I’ve noticed three specific failure points:

#1. You can’t find the email addresses of the people you want to pitch.

#2: You completely skip building relationships with your prospects.

#3. Your pitch sucks.

Over the next few weeks you’re going to learn how to fix all three of these problems.

This week I’m going to show you the simplest way to find the email addresses of major influencers and how to start building a relationship with them. Continue Reading…

How Jonathan Made $2,000 in 5 Days Without a Business Idea (Case Study)

Quick question…

What were you doing 6 months ago today?

Chances are you were sitting in the exact same position you are right now.

Reading ANOTHER blog post about marketing,

Listening to ANOTHER podcast interview,

…and making excuses about about how you are different and why that stuff would never work for you.

Consider this your wake-up call…

While you were making excuses, this guy started a business and made $2k in 5 days.

6 months ago I wrote an article outlining the simplest way I know to make money (online or offline).

And guess what?

One person read that article and ACTUALLY IMPLEMENTED WHAT HE READ.

Shocking, right?

While you were all passively reading and dreaming about what life could be like, this guy actually got off his butt and did something.

My new friend Jonathan took the steps laid out in that blog post and hustled his face off.

Within five days…yes, FIVE DAYS…of reading that article, he had started his new company and generated $2,100 in sales.

That was more than he used to make in an entire month of work.

Today, I’m going to show you what Jonathan did and how you can do the exact same thing.

Let’s get started. Continue Reading…

Over 150,000 New Email Subscribers in 30 Days (List Goal Update)

Bryan Harris —  by Bryan Harris - Get free updates of new posts here

It’s been 90 days since the last update on List Goal

… and a lot has happened.

1. The minimal viable version was completed.

2.  Three different developers were hired (and then fired).

3. The app completely crashed.

4. Then we found a good developer, fixed the app and did a soft launch to 100 beta users.

5. Over 150,000 new email subscribers have been added by the beta group.

It’s been a grind.

But to see people actively growing their list as a result of using List Goal has been incredibly fulfilling.

Today I’m going to give you an in-depth look at the entire process, what I learned and how you can download a copy ASAP.

Note: Don’t worry if you’re late to the party and have no idea what List Goal is. I’ll get you up to speed.

How to get 739 people to read your next email (Case Study)

Bryan Harris —  by Bryan Harris - Get free updates of new posts here

Wanna know what sucks?

Spending years building your list, only to have your subscribers never see your email.

When I email my subscribers a new blog post, 90% of them never see it.

Not because they choose not to.

But because it literally never shows up in their inbox.

Recently my friend Brian turned me on to a little trick that you can use to solve this problem.

It’s called the Subject Dry-Run.

Three weeks ago I tested it out and my email open rates went up by 43%.

Today I’m going to give you a quick crash course on how you can use this super simple formula to increase traffic and sales.

2015 Online Business Bad Lip Reading

Bryan Harris —  by Bryan Harris - Get free updates of new posts here

Want to know how to fail?

Work on two big projects at the same time.

I’m in the middle of doing just that (a new course and a new app).

I love it, though. The grind. The work. The building.

BUT!

You have to stop and have some fun.

Or else you’ll look up 3 years from now and hate what you do. And that sucks.

So, today…

While I’m in the middle of grinding out these two projects, I made something that will force you to smile–and have fun.

:)

The thing that got me into online business 3 years ago was watching Gary Vaynerchuk’s Web 2.0 talk from 2008. It was incredible.

Seeing people that have “made it” talk about their journey and teach others how to do the same thing, it’s freaking motivating. And it gets me through big projects like this.

Soooo….

I had some fun and put together a special compilation of some of my favorite clips. But with a little twist.
