10 Reasons You’ll Love Fizzle

  1. Fizzlers are freaking awesome. The community is full of ambitious, talented, friendly, driven and fun people reaching for the next step in their businesses and lives.
  2. Each course is taught by experts you can trust like Leo Babauta, Scott Dinsmore and, of course, me and the Fizzle Team.
  3. We have inside jokes (lots of them). The Fizzle community is so fun you’ll forget this is “work.”
  4. We have in depth interviews with proven entrepreneurs where we learn the steps they took to be successful and what they’d do if they were starting all over. (e.g., how Pat Flynn built a passive income empire)
  5. It’s affordable. You don’t have to pay a bunch of money to get in. In fact, our members tell us our monthly price is ridiculously low for everything included.
  6. We hold live “Office Hours” sessions where you can ask experts specific questions about your business.
  7. The Fizzle community will kick your ass (in a good way) — with this accountability and direction you’ll get more done than ever before.
  8. You’ll actually watch our training videos. They come in bite-sized chunks and give you step by step guides, making it easy to start applying the learning to your business. Also, they’re fun.
  9. The Three C’s are here for you (Corbett, Chase and Caleb), rooting you on and answering your questions. Seriously, this is our house. We care about it more than you know.
  10. Fizzle will help you finally make that breakthrough you’ve been dreaming of. Seriously, Fizzlers are winning deals, crushing goals, and breaking through old limitations every day.

We stand by every single one of these points. This place is special. If you want to build an online business you’re proud of we want you in Fizzle.

    Curious to know if there will be any behind-the-scenes posts on the process of creating the site/brand/content itself.

    Or would that create a dangerous recursive loop of some kind?

    • http://fizzle.co Corbett Barr

      I love recursive loops! We’ll definitely be doing some behind-the-scenes stuff very soon.

  • http://monthlyexperiments.com John Muldoon

    Just wanted to say, for anyone on the fence, that Fizzle is my favorite group of smart, funny, and entrepreneurial people. It’s a joy to learn from them and with them.

    See you inside. :)

    • http://fizzle.co Corbett Barr

      Thanks John, we’re glad you’re a Fizzler :)

  • Jamey Austin

    Hi Think Traffic,

    First off, I want to say how much I appreciate your design aesthetic and content. Thank you.

    I feel compelled to ask a question about this new project. (And you’re so far into it!) Why did you decide to call it “Fizzle”? Fizzle means to “end or fail in a weak or disappointing way,” and “make a feeble hissing or spluttering sound,” and “a failure.”

    For people so attuned to words and content, how did you decide on this? What am I missing?

    • http://www.pocketchanged.com Caleb Wojcik

      Hey Jamey,

      Yep, it has multiple meanings. We wanted a name people will never forget.

      We’re working to keep people FROM Fizzling out.

      We’ll be giving it an all new meaning soon enough. :)

  • http://starvethedoubts.com Jared Easley

    this looks awesome! Thank you!

    Congratulations Fizzle Team.

    As a beta member for the past few months I can vouch for the awesomeness that is Fizzle!

    Jump on the discount while it lasts – it’s totally worth it!

    • http://fizzle.co Corbett Barr

      Thanks Chris!

  • steve

    • http://www.pocketchanged.com Caleb Wojcik

      Hey Steve,

      You can check out the pricing options at http://Fizzle.co

  • http://www.makebettervideos.com Richard

    I totally had an infomercial audience member moment of being like “All that? For so little? How do they DO it?!” This looks otherworldly! Wow.

    • http://fizzle.co Corbett Barr

      That’s *exactly* the reaction we’re going for ;)

  • Clint

    Hi Guys

    Fizzle sounds awesome. is all the content videos or is there mp3′s, worksheets etc?

    How long on average do the videos go for?

    Once I sign up do I start getting access straight away to the courses?

    What type of interaction goes on inside the community? can we post questions, help each other out etc?

    Thanks
    Clint

    • http://www.pocketchanged.com Caleb Wojcik

      Hey Clint,

      All of the courses are video based, but the office hours and founder stories are also available via MP3. Some of the lessons have worksheets as well.

      The individual lesson videos are anywhere from 3 to 10 minutes long, with courses adding up to anywhere from 40 minutes to 2 hours.

      Yes, you get immediate access to the courses.

      TONS of interaction goes on the community. It is a full-on forum with hundreds of people asking for feedback, bouncing ideas off each other, holding each other accountable, etc.

      Hope that helps!

    • Clint

      Thanks! Awesome.
