In the world of online business there aren’t too many people that truly stand out for all the RIGHT reasons.

My guest on this third episode of the New Business Podcast, however, is one of those rare occurrences! In the last 4-years, Pat Flynn has carved out a very loyal, committed following from the general ‘noise’ of the internet. A following that allows him to enjoy recurring revenues in his business, amounting to $50,000 a month, upwards!

He’s done this through smart marketing tactics, massive amounts of online content and a philosophy that he coined that is simply known as ‘Be Everywhere‘. Couple this together with his overall transparency when it comes to his business in general, and you’ve got someone that really does stand out from the online entrepreneurial crowd.

Pat and I are very good friends and we have a lot of fun in this episode – but, believe me, the content you’re about to consume amounts to a huge game-changer for your business. Enjoy.

In this episode, you’ll find out:

  • Why ‘Being Everywhere’ is so important in today’s online world.
  • How Pat has built some an amazingly loyal community of fans.
  • The secret ‘sweet spot’ for online video length and getting started.
  • How podcasting has built his confidence and helped with public speaking.
  • How Pat uses Facebook to extend and build relationships, and not ‘promote’.
  • Why Amazon Kindle eBook’s are also included in the ‘Be Everywhere’ mindset.
  • Pat’s #1 tip to doing business in the new economy.
  • Much more!

I value every review I receive, and often read them out on the show. If you take the time to leave one, THANK YOU - You rock!

Pat is obviously a big inspiration to the blogging community. As someone that continues to pursue different angles and ways to get in front of new audiences, etc., he’s surely on the right track to continued business success.

But the big takeaway here, for me anyway, as a fellow business owner is the importance of truly being everywhere, as Pat puts it. The power behind this philosophy in today’s market just cannot and should not be ignored. Go and do likewise, everyone – it’s time to get busy!

And there’s you thinking you’d get away with putting that weird loop in at the end. Well, I listen to every last minute, man!

Cool podcast, guys. Last thing at night for Pat, first thing in the morning for Chris … but seemed to work!

Haha. You’re the first to notice it. Yeah, not sure what happened there. I think it was an export error, but it’s 20secs or something. No biggie – not a big enough problem to worry about!

Glad you enjoyed the content, man. Golden to see you here, as always.

Hey Chris,
Thank you for the advice you mentioned the last time I commented.
It seems Pat’s success is determined by the way he communicates with his audience and the problems he solves. The quality of the content determines the results and the value you provide. The bigger the problem/s you solve, the more money you make.
I’ve learned about Pat Flynn first from Yaro Starak.
I’ve gotten very picky and have become very careful, deliberating on key decisions when making them in deciding on what to do in my next business to make the biggest impact.
I’ve started reading, “The $100 Startup” by Chris Guillebeau since buying it from Amazon.com because I need ideas from case studies for my next business.
I have a question for you. I learned from T. Harv Eker in a webinar called, “SpeedWealth Principles” that LEVERAGE takes many forms…and it often separates those that are successful and those that struggle. Could you tell me the different types of leverage and give examples of how they are used?
I’m asking you this question because you respond to all your comments and I respect you for that since sometimes when I ask questions at other blogs, the blogger doesn’t say anything back. Maybe you could do a video on it to share this knowledge with everyone so we all can learn.
I thank you for this podcast and your time to answer my question.

Cheers,
Rick

Hi Rick

I like that idea.

I’m gonna look into planning a post on all things ‘Leverage’ very soon. It’s a concept I haven’t seen discussed all that much online, so happy to lead the way on it!

Obviously, the biggest type of leverage, for the entrepreneur, is TIME. If we can leverage that, fundamentally getting more time into our work days, the productivity factor is huge.

Stay tuned, man.

Hello Chris,
I’ve thought about LEVERAGE and I can think about three different types: 1) TIME, 2) MONEY, and 3) PEOPLE. I don’t know everything about business, but I’d figured you would know more because you’ve had something like four successful businesses if I’m not mistaken. Time, Money and People are our most precious resources besides our earning ability. I’m very interested in what you have to say because I want to learn what you know. Like you’ve said, I haven’t heard much discussed on this subject and, I haven’t heard any examples of types of leverage and how they are applied.
Thank you for your time and cooperation.

Cheers,
Rick

Great show, Chris.
You’re a true inspiration and an entertaining chap. 5 years ago, I left a lacklustre work-life in the UK. Now based in HK working for a company I’m happy with, and hopefully will be for a few years more. My next stop will be the Philippines to settle down with my wife and family and set up business there. Your podcasts keep me on target towards my goal. Cheers!

Appreciate the kind words, and good luck with that next step! Glad to keep you on target…

Stay tuned.
