The Real Potential Of An Online Business - Miles Beckler

The Real Potential Of An Online Business

The last couple emails have brought some real talk about what it takes to create lasting success with an online business...

Most people 'see' what gets published and don't realize the hours upon hours of background work that it takes to publish every minute of content...

So the mindset is skewed... It appears easy.

In theory it is simple...

But growing an audience and a business is not easy at all...

In fact, it's EXTREMELY difficult.

Now, that doesn't mean it is impossible...

It just takes time and overcoming hundreds if not thousands of challenges.

The biggest challenge for most people being TIME.

Where do you find the time to do all of the work, with everything you already have going on?

If you only have 10 hours per week to focus on it, you'd better focus all 10 on publishing and 0 on consuming content.

But I think that if you really want to succeed, you need to find a way to double the amount of time you are spending publishing, too.

Because the amount of great content you publish over long periods of time is the key.

Publish, publish, publish.

Those who create the most helpful content... Most often... WIN.

Some quick numbers for you about how this all transpired for me...

You see, right now my channel is growing faster than ever and has just crossed the 4 Million views mark...

I highly recommend you watch that video for a bit of perspective as I show the lifetime growth and the growth of my blog and podcast.

When you watch it, leave me a comment that you read this email too, so I know you are serious.

Back to the 'how this transpired' story...

You see, the part most people forget is how painfull SLOW the numbers were at the start of my channel...

In the first 3 months of my channel, I published the best damn video I could, each and every day for 90 days.

A stupid amount of work that pushed me to my limits, multiple times.

I had to keep all my other business stuff going (was already doing 50+ hours per week there)...

I traveled to 2 conferences and flew across the Pacific Ocean twice (two 30+ hour travel sessions)...

I even migrated my website to a new platform, shopping cart, etc. during this time. (this should be punishment for shoplifting and petty crimes it is so brutally frustrating)

Ya, we are all busy as...

It's not just you...

Every great business, tool, channel, blog, invention was created by someone who was EXTREMELY BUSY.

No 'poor me, I'm so busy and Miles had all the time in the world' B.S. allowed.

I didn't magically have 'all this time' available and decided to start making videos.

I MADE THE TIME to publish each and every day....

Because I knew I HAD TO PUBLISH my ideas or else my audience would keep getting duped by the hype from fake gurus.

I had to make a stand for each and every one of you and my petty BS about how little time I had was the one thing I had to eliminate.

I was driven...

So I found a way.

So again, 3 months, 90 of the BEST videos I could muster...

Guess how many subscribers!

Really... Take a minute to guess.

5,000 subs?

10,000 subs?

2,000 subs?

Nope...

A whopping total of 134 subscribers.

Probably about 300 hours of life energy during one of the busiest periods of my life...

Not even 150 subs.

This is where most people quit.

Looking at how much time it took to publish those 90 videos...

The struggles of waking up earlier, doing all my day job work and then figuring out what to teach and how to create the vids...

It was brutal.

All for less than 150 subscribers.

Most people think "This doesn't work" and give up at that point.

But I knew that I had to keep going if I wanted to get the power of compounding on my side.

So I stuck with it, publishing another 30 videos in 30 more days...

Then transitioning to 3 videos per week starting month 5.

After 1 year... I had published 244 videos I had 26,747 subscribers.

At year 2 I had 60k subs...

Today, 2.5 years in... I'm over 85,000 subs and growing faster than ever.

The snowball effect is real... Compounding is real!

But the trick is to stick with it for several YEARS not months.

And I repeat this again just to make sure your head is in the right place.

Because when you realize it will take years of hard work and scratching out time you don't think you have...

You won't be disappointed after publishing 200 videos or blog posts that you still don't have a bazillion subs.

Because 'bazillions' happen after 5 years - 10 years of publishing 😉

Not 5 - 10 months.

So, make sure you're really committed to your audience and your niche...

And watch this video for a healthy dose of reality.

Then roll up your sleeves and publish something awesome today!

Your audience NEEDS you.

And only you can deliver the messages they need most.
