What’s New at Fizzle and Why We Changed Our Pricing Model

We’ve been busy over at Fizzle in the past couple of months and I wanted to share some exciting news with you.

If you haven’t heard about Fizzle yet, we call it “Honest Online Business Training.” We think it’s the best training library and community for online business builders anywhere.

And now, it’s available at a new simplified price.

Announcing New Fizzle Pricing

We used to have two pricing tiers for Fizzle. After lots of planning, talking with Fizzlers and coding behind the scenes, we’ve decided to unify all Fizzlers into one (discounted) pricing family.

The days of wondering if you should choose “Standard” or “Deluxe” are over. There is now just one, unified membership level within Fizzle.

This single membership level includes access to all Fizzle resources: the full Fizzle Training Library, Founder’s Stories, Office Hours (both live and recordings), Fizzle Perks & Discounts The Fizzle Community and support from Team Fizzle.

Fizzle membership is now available at a single rate of $35 per month (or $315 per year). This is down from a top rate of $49 per month under our previous structure.

We’re making this change for one simple reason: we believe it’s the “Fizzle” thing to do.

Dividing Fizzlers according to membership levels hasn’t felt right for this community since we launched. Feedback from Fizzlers has confirmed this. We want all Fizzlers to be treated the same, regardless of how much they’re paying.

We launched Fizzle with two pricing tiers because it’s the industry standard setup, and because we vaguely believed it might help us earn more revenue overall.

Now we’re changing things, not because of any testing we’ve done (we have no idea what this change will do to revenue), but because it fits the Fizzle brand best.

Treating our members right is more important than maximizing profit.

This is Honest Online Biz Training™, after all.

A Fizzle member is a Fizzle member. No more distinctions.

Now let me show you the other exciting things we’ve been up to at Fizzle.

A “Must Watch” New Video: Al-U-Mini-Um

(if you don’t see the video above, view it on YouTube)

Can we ask you a favor? If you have a few minutes, we’d love your feedback on our latest Fizzle video above.

Give the video a quick watch, then give us some feedback in the comments on this post. Tell us if you liked the video, and what you think of Fizzle after watching it.

Oh, and there is some al-u-mini-um involved.

New Courses from Familiar Names

Fizzle now contains 176 lessons in 24 courses from some very special instructors including Pat Flynn, Scott Dinsmore, Leo Babauta and the Fizzle Team (Corbett Barr, Chase Reeves and Caleb Wojcik).

Here’s a handful of new courses we’ve released in the past few months:

  • Affiliate Marketing the Smart Way (with Pat Flynn) – Pat’s Smart Passive Income blog earns up to $50,000 per month from affiliate marketing, and this exclusive Fizzle course will show you how to earn affiliate revenue with your own site using Pat’s proven strategies.
  • Connect with Anyone Fizzle Edition (with Scott Dinsmore) – Somehow we convinced Scott Dinsmore of Live Your Legend to develop a special version of his sold out “How to Connect With Anyone” course exclusively for Fizzle. Scott’s course sells separately for $397 (or more), but as a Fizzler you get access to our special version included with your membership.
  • Build Your Email List: The First 10k Subscribers and Beyond (with Corbett Barr) – In this step-by-step course, you’ll learn exactly how to set up your email list, how to grow your list quickly, what to email your list, and lots of advanced techniques. This course contains 22 lessons, 8 pages of workbook, and nearly 3 hours of video on everything you need to grow an email list to 10k subscribers or beyond.
  • Productivity Essentials (with Chase Reeves) – This all-new course covers productivity essentials to help you get more done every day. Did you know entrepreneurs have two operating modes, and that we need to tap into each to be effective?

Plus, we have new Founders Stories interviews with Jason Glaspey of Paleo Plan, Chuck Longanecker of Digital Telepathy, and Chris Johnson of Simplifilm.

These are intimate in-person interviews where we dig in and find out exactly how some of the most interesting and successful people online built their businesses.

Perks and more!

We have negotiated exclusive discounts for Fizzlers on some of the most useful tools for building online businesses.

As a Fizzle member, you can get savings of up to 50% on services including Optimizely, Geckoboard, SquareSpace, Page.ly, BlueHost, WooThemes, TextExpander, BackupBuddy and more.

These are just some of the new things we’ve been building inside Fizzle. We also have monthly challenges, live office hours, a vital community (with nearly 20,000 forum posts) and way more than we can list here.

Plus, don’t forget about the inside jokes. Building a business should be fun, and we try to make Fizzle that kind of place.

We’ve been busy inside Fizzle, and we hope you’ll check it out.

Don’t forget, as a Think Traffic reader, you’ll get your first month in Fizzle for just $1 when you sign up through the links on this page.

If you watched the video above, we’d love your feedback. Tell us what you think below.

And if you’re a Fizzler already, thanks for making the community so helpful and fun. Give us a shout-out below if you’ve gotten something useful from Fizzle lately.

    You wanted a feedback on the video right? I’ll give you that.

    It’s Bri-lli-ant.

    Production is awesome, the content of the video is very convincing, and the overall vibe is just right.
    Oh, and fun.

    Man… chase rocks. I remember back then when you introduced Chase when you redesigned Think Traffic I immediately loved the guy. I can feel that he brought a new spirit to your team, and you all seem to have so much fun together, it’s also fun to watch.

    Did I mention the video was great?

    • chase

      Ha! Thanks, Moses. Big thanks.

  • http://www.clearmindedcreative.com Milo

    Great video guys, love the idea of bridging the gap between ‘I want to do it’ and ‘I did it’. The video courses are great and have been really impressed at the pace you’re adding new content – I’m still catching up!

  • Michael Garofalo

    Just like @Milo said, I’m bridging the gap as we speak. Thank you for everything, especially the refreshing attitude towards building a business online. The video is great (had a few whole hearted laugh out loud moments).

    Right now I’m in CWA and loving every second of it. With all the information there, here at think traffic, and what I have learned through self educating, I have more than enough to get my ass going.

    Once I finish my foundation (getting close!), I will most definitely hop on in the Fizzle community :)

    Keep being awesome! Rock On!

    ~ Mike

    P.S. I thought I had my USP after many attempts at hitting the drawing board (Literally, my own drawing board. I bought a 2′x4′ whiteboard for dirt cheap at Loews Hardware for $8. Screw those 2-$300 things online).

    But then I naturally came across your USP article, and started to rethink things. Then stumbled upon the interview with Derek from social triggers and combined the effort of what you guys touched upon and the USP article. It all clicked.

    Needless to say I went from “Eh decent USP with a powerful message” (would of caught on over time) to “That’s a freekin EPIC USP with a POWERFUL message” (much easier to get people’s attention). And I have you guys to thank for that.

    Ok, enough chatting, time to start doing :)

    Rock On

    • http://fizzle.co Corbett Barr

      You had me at EPIC USP! Please share more when you’re ready Michael. Congrats on the progress so far, now the hard work begins ;)

    • Michael Garofalo

      Thanks Corbett :) Planning is fun, executing is work. I’ll most definitely share when it’s at the “whoa look at what you did” stage. Until then, keep being bad ass !

  • http://www.extramoneyblog.com Sunil – Extra Money Blog

    liking the changes to the program, including pricing which I feel is the main driver in this offering given the competitive landscape today. interested in learning about the results of this change to your business C. all the best to you and will stay tuned

  • http://deandeguara.com Dean Deguara

    Like the new pricing model…I’ve been debating whether or not to switch from PlatU…their price is hard to beat, but I feel like you have a more hands on approach with your members and something stirs me up when I dive into our content. Wish I could do both! Might give it a trial run for a month.

  • http://www.theother999rooms.com Bill Apablasa

    Brilliant video. From a creative point, I loved the production value. Crisp, clean look with just enough bells and whistles and humor to make it engaging. Very impressed. I wasn’t planning on buying anymore products from anyone, but you just might have talked me into it. Well done…and damn you.

    • chase

      Ha! “Well done… and damn you.” Got me, Bill. Thanks, man.

  • http://www.adaptdnation.com Cody Stevenson

    Great video and I think it explains a lot better exactly what Fizzle is. I also am a big fan of Chase and I would like to be chiseled into success out of a block of Al-u-Mini-Um.

    I am considering signing up for Fizzle, you guys might see me soon :) Thanks for all the great info over time.

  • http://minimalistphoto.com Amanda

    The old video had a lot of personality, but I like that the new video has all of you in it. I think it is a lot more informative as well. Each of you brings something to the video through your personalities. Chase is really good at connecting with people through video. His voice and the way he talks is very authentic and caring. This makes a nice balance to Caleb and Corbett who are still more structured.

    • chase

      Thanks so much, Amanda. It’s sort of bitter-sweet to me… the launch-stache in the previous video was legit — almost *too* legit. :)

    • http://minimalistphoto.com Amanda

      Oh, it was so legit.

  • http://www.chrisducker.com Chris C. Ducker

    Hi Guys

    Thats the FIRST TIME EVER, that I’ve heard someone from ‘the other side of the pond’ say that word perfectly.

    Well done, Chase!

    Great stuff.

    Chris

    • chase

      HA! Chris, I’ll always give you the rock-hard all-u-mini-um! :)

  • http://www.pushstandards.com Tom Ross

    I love my Fizzle membership. I’ve never taken so much action on my blog in my life, and it’s really given me my spark back (something I’d lost after getting into a sluggish routine).

    I couldn’t recommend the service more! Keep it up guys.

    • http://fizzle.co Corbett Barr

      Thanks so much Tom for being an active part of the community. We’re really lucky to have people like you in there hustling every day.

    • chase

      Yea, Tom. I second Corbett: your presence is really great in Fizzle. Thanks for your kind words!

  • http://monthlyexperiments.com John Muldoon

    Amazingly good video… Chase channeling Jony Ive had me cracking up.

    Also, Fizzle is such a special place. I’m so happy to have been a member since day 1.

  • http://getbusylivingblog.com Benny

    Even though I know about Fizzle, the video had my attention throughout. Well done guys! Fizzle is awesome if anyone is reading this and wondering if they should join.

  • http://coachjennie.com Jennie Mustafa-Julock (aka Coach Jennie)

    Wow. Okay. I’m sold. I want my business to experience more of the second definition of fizzle and less of the first definition. I want to go from “I want to do this” to “I did this.”

    Where do I sign?

    P.S. My favorite part of the video is when someone off camera (Chase, I think) yells at Caleb to look into the camera. Brilliant!

    • chase

      That’s my favorite part too :) I’ve seen this thing 239 times and it still gets me. I think it’s cuz Caleb is so strapping and handsom when he giggles like a nine year old.

      Thanks Jennie!

  • http://geekfree.net Aaron

    Great video (and smart sift to streamlined pricing).

    While chase drops more “likes” than Amy Porterfield watching a Kardashians marathon, I really love what you guys are doing for entrepreneurs. The “office hours” piece is rad. Fizz-tastically brilliant…

    Aaron

    • chase

      Oh burn! I can take it, though. Thanks Aaron.

  • http://otitijasmine.com Otiti

    I really enjoyed the video, particularly Chase’s Apple ad spoof and Caleb’s rock star salute.

    Fizzle looks like something every new business owner should have access to, and I certainly plan to join the ranks once I can.

    Thank you for putting this together, guys. You bolster my faith that my fledgling business can and will succeed.

  • http://www.thatssobecoming.com L.L. Butler

    Love the video! I wish this community was available when I first started online.

  • Nichole Joubert

    “Al-U-Mini-Um”!!!!! I get it! Hilarious. But seriously I continue to be blown away by this company and all your products. I found you through a Pat Flynn post and have found 200% value from day one. I’ve been so disillusioned by the strong desire to start an reputable online business vs the vast world of how to succeed online scammers that fizzle, Think Traffic and How To Start A Blog That Matters have been like a rebirth of faith in integrity. If someone is serious about going from point A to Z with their online idea, this is a smart, complete and affordable option to get there. I’m so passionate about you guys when I speak to my friends who are still fumbling around in the online business dungeon that I’m afraid I come off like an over zealous 3C’s crack head who took one puff too many.

    • chase

      {swoon} Thanks, Nichole. We’re really proud of this and so glad you resonate with it.

  • http://repossible.com Bradley Charbonneau

    I got a call the other day wanting me to review the contractor we had at the house recently (from a diamond certification something-or-other). The contractor had done a great job, so I obliged. She forced me to think about what I *really* thought of the guy and his business and it came down to one factor: trust.

    You guys want us to succeed. In fact, you need us to succeed. Because that’s the case, we can trust you to guide us (unconditionally) towards that success. Who does that? Parents. Grandparents. Elementary school teachers. You guys.

    P.S. My only regret so far being a Fizzler is that I haven’t had the time to devote to it (humungo branding job … almost done!). After the summer!

  • Remco

    Interesting
    I have been following quite some of these guys already.

    but for what level is this?

  • http://goinswriter.com Jeff Goins

    Love the videos you guys are making. This really sets what you’re doing apart from the competition, in my opinion. Keep up the great work!

  • http://energymatch.ca/blog/ Ekaterina Ramirez

    The video is great, guys – engaging, descriptive and fun. It creates a clear picture of what to expect. I discovered your site just a couple of days ago and already love it.
